SCHED4BSD or SCHEDULE
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 17, 2005
I recently installed FreeBSD 6.0 on my laptop. I know the default scheduler used by FreeBSD is the old SCHED_4BSD. However, I was curious about using SCHED_ULE and which would be better for a single processor machine like my laptop. Is it worthwhile switching to ULE or should I just stay with 4BSD for my laptop.

Fedora, Gentoo or Arch?

This may seem like a strange topic, but out of the three, which one gets your vote?
CentOS, Fedora, or Ubuntu for server. Which is best?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 20, 2008
The title sums it up. And, posting this on an Ubuntu forum, I know beforehand that the answers might be a little biased.
But the gist of it is that I may soon need to set up and periodically administer a box that will be used for subversion, among other things. I've been using Ubuntu since Feisty on might desktop and have loved it overall. My first instinct is to go ahead and load Hardy LTS on the new server, but then again Fedora seems to be the go-to distro for servers.
I realize that Canonical is working hard to make Ubuntu a server household name in its own right with some already evident success, but I know Fedora supposedly has a history of being a strong server platform, and nearly every server I've seen in the past is usually running some form of Red Hat-inspired software.
Come to think of it, I had forgotten about CentOS. How does that stack up?
I haven't really administered a server of any kind before, so I'd appreciate honest assessments of each distr
Ubuntu Server Or CentOS
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 20, 2011
Hey guys I am soon to deploy a new server for quite a bit of things such as web serving, Game Servers, and File Hosting. I have one main question is whether to go with Ubuntu Server 10.10 or CentOS 5.5 in terms of reliability, uptime, expandability, and the most professional one to use. It would be great to read some of your opinions. Also if you would like you can also post what you think is the best overall server operating system.... Thank you in advance
ARM Chromebook 13.04 Ubuntu, Xubuntu, or Lubuntu? why?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 15, 2013
Ok so I am thinking of trying to install ubuntu on my arm chromebook when the final 13.04 versions release later this month. I know that there is *supposed to be increased support for the hardware for the 13.04 release (any thoughts on that?). Now my question is this (I am kind of a newbie so bare with me), is there going to be any major differences in support or the installation process for Ubuntu, Xubuntu, or Lubuntu? If the answer is no, then which version would you all recommend? I currently use Xubuntu on a parallels VM and have been very happy with it, but considering the lower system resources of the samsung arm chromebook I am thinking that Lubuntu may be a better alternative. Then again the 12.10 version of the standard Ubuntu release already ran pretty snappy on this hardware according to multiple sources.
So basically thats the question, which version of 13.04 would you install on a Samsung ARM Chromebook... Ubuntu, Xubuntu, or Lubuntu?
in case youre wondering, my require
Arch Linux "vanilla" or LXDE?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 4, 2012
I have done a fresh installation of Arch Linux, this week. I am very happy with my progress, so far. The way I have it now, I boot to a text console, log in, and run startx to go into an OpenBox desktop with a tint2 panel. This is very nice, very simple, and very light on resources.
However, every time I want to do something new, it seems like I have to install something else and learn how to configure it. Yesterday, I discovered that LXDE is basically just OpenBox plus several more applications. The claim is that LXDE is also very light on resource consumption.
So, what is your take on this? Should I continue on my current tack, or add LXDE to maybe make things a little simpler? I want to hear the pros and cons of both approaches.
How to get Debian 7 GNOME Classic or Arch Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 28, 2013
I have a Arch linux system that runs GNOME 3.8.2 and another system that runs the new Debian Wheezy 7.1 that came out a few days ago. I really LOVE the GNOME Classic mode that is included on Debian 7.1, and though I use my Arch system most of the time, I prefer the Classic GNOME greatly over GNOME 3.8.2, so I was wondering if it is possible to add the GNOME classic included on debian and put it into Arch. And I don't want to use XFCE as a replacement. So if someone could tell me how to get GNOME classic on arch linux, That'll be great
No such file or directory error
- date: July 22, 2012
I am cross-compiling a program on my PC (12.04) for my beaglebone (12.04 precise armhf). But when I try to execute the program on beaglebone:
bash: ./helloworldtest: No such file or directory
Here are some properties:
:/home/ubuntu/helloworld# file helloworldtest
helloworldtest: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, ARM, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.31, BuildID[sha1]=0xca0159e70b99493764b601a0195ee18be5e29b31, not stripped

drwxr-xr-x 5 ubuntu ubuntu 4096 Jul 20 07:50 ..
-rwxrwxrwx 1 ubuntu ubuntu 72739 Jul 20 07:42 helloworldtest
I searched net and found out that most of the people who had this problem, had it because they were using 64 bits machine to compile the code but my PC's processor is 32 bits and my beaglebone's is 32bits too.

Android Tablet or Android Phone?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 2, 2011
I was just wondering. What do you think is the best deal of these two:
A.) Get an Android Tablet, throttle up my cable internet to the 69.99 USD /mo 25 Mbps download 3 Mbps upload, so I can game better.
B.) Get an android plan of 119 or so USD a month, no gaming, get rid of my cable Internet, and cable phone?
I can't have both. Note that the Plan A. would be cheaper, due to it being 69.99 + 14.99 USD/mo. I don't travel a lot, and when I do, there's usually a wifi point I can connect to. Gaming cannot be tethered easily without harsh fees above the normal rate:
For people who support tethering:
260 KB/sec average on a 3D MMORPG. That's about 0.25390625 Megabytes of Data. Follow along the usage track:
This is considering 5 Hours a day:
0.25390625 * 60 = 15.234375 MB an hour
15.234375 * 5 = 76.171875 MB a day
76.171875 * 7 = 533.203125 MB a week
533.203125 * 4.5 = 2,399.41406 MB (or 2.4 GB) a month. (Carriers usually round up to the nearest megabyte)

Lowcost tablet compatible with ubuntu (or even android)?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 1, 2010
Is there a tablet in existence fitting these specifications:
>600 pixels vertical resolution preferably
Atom or better
touch screen compatible with ubuntu or android
can be connected to standard usb or bluetooth keyboard
If so I really would like one; it does sound like they're coming out soon (with multi-touch ubuntu and the new android tablets) but for now I need a new high-end laptop and having a device like this could mean that I don't care as much about the laptop's weight and battery life, saving me hundreds of dollars; I don't want to buy a heavy laptop with 2 hr battery life and then discover this doesn't work nine months later.
