Installing Ubuntu? How easy to go back to Tiger?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 15, 2009
I have a doubt regarding installing Ubuntu (either 8.04 or 8.10) on a PowerBook G4.
I'm pretty sure the answer will "no", but I'd like double check
1. I'd like to install Ubuntu, by wiping the whole HDD, and using it for Ubuntu. Provided I have a Tiger Retail DVD, will I be able to re-install Tiger later, right? With Disk Utility during the install?
2. I have seeing, testing it with the Live CD, that in order to get the wireless adapter running, Ubuntu tries to install a firmware. Would that firmware cripple in any way the future use of the wireless adapter if I install Tiger again?
As usual, TIA

virtualization on ubuntu? how fast?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 3, 2009
Hey I am about to start studies in unviersity and my university has msdn connections which will give me free download of windows 7 64 bit. I am running ubuntu 64 bit on a reiserf partition. How fast is it to virtualise windows 7 on ubuntu? I have never attempted virtualization before and it would be helpful to know how well it would perform? I am willing to delete all existing partitions of windows in my machine and just virtualize it if it works well. Like can it run direct x 10 games on virtualization?
I have i7-920 gtx 280/ 6 gb ddr3 on my computer so hopefuly it would run fast. What do you guys think?

One of the most common qs i see in forums is >>> How to convert multiple jpg files to one one pdf file by one click .
I have got 2 solutions that I consider solve this situation to the best ....
*1.* Install SCRIBUS from synaptic package manager . It can convert jpegs to pdf without any issues .
F Spot Photo Manager can also be used .
*2.* This 2nd step I find much better ....
I have been using it myself for some time now ... and its flaw less ...
A) Install WINE using the terminal . For beginers .... Its a software that can run selected windows applications on a linux destro like ubuntu. Installing is very easy >>>> open synaptic manager and in quick search box type Wine. Once the wine files show in the search mark them for installation.

VMWare Workstation on Ubuntu how much hardware required?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 1, 2008
Perhaps this should be under hardware it is not a hardware "problem" exactly...
I am back on an old kick of running Windoze in a VM on a Linux box. Started a few years ago but did not have the time to do too much. In a nutshell I have an evaluation copy of VMware workstation which I successfully installed on Ubuntu 6.10 (don't ask about installing on Fedora 7 - my first attempt). I successfully installed Win XP Pro and Win Vista Ultimate (bloat). They each seem to run and can access the network, Internet etc.
I decided to see if I could run both at once. Memory utilization was low ~400 MB per the Ubuntu system monitor. CPU utilization ran high but not always pegged at 100%. However, the hard drive light came on and stayed on and on and I decided to shut down the XP machine. And the light stayed on and on and on... Finally got both VMs shut down after about 15 minutes.
So I am thinking that perhaps I need a 15K rpm SCSI drive or two to build a decent performin

[SOLVED] no PATH variable set but still javac working fine in Ubuntu. How ?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 11, 2010
I thought that setting up the PATH variable was a must if we wanted to use java or javac commands on linux (preferably in the bashrc file), but I am able to use these commands anywhere without setting up the PATH variable.. Similarly, without specifying '.' in the CLASSPATH variable (in fact, not specifying the CLASSPATH variable at all), I am able to access class files in the same directory. How is it possible ?
[SOLVED] Ubuntu How to increase buffer rate on VLC?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 12, 2010
I've got some high quality videos I want to run on vlc, but they require a higher buffering rate then the default for vlc. With the default the video skips every second or so and pixelates now and again. I've run the video on vlc on windows before and I found a buffer rate to change to make the video run smoothly, however, I don't remember what the value I changed was and when I looked through the ubuntu vlc options I didn't recognize it immediately. Any suggestions?
