Ubuntu vs Pinguy... why is Ubuntu larger in system
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 21, 2011
I have 2 installations of 11.04 on the same HDD. One is Ubuntu the other is Pinguy. They both have the same basic applications installed from the CD.
Now Pinguy comes with a lot of extras like XBMC, Handbrake and DeVeDe; all the bells and whistles but the Ubuntu installation is far greater in size than that of Pinguy.
Compare Ubuntu 28.8Gb to Pinguy 9.45Gb and the Home directories are duplicated.
Where does the bloat come from? Or whats not in Pinguy that should be?
Can I trim Ubuntu and not break it?

Thanks for the clarification. It should be noted, of course, that Ubuntu defaults to Gnome and Mepis to KDE, then. In both distros you can download the other desktop environment, should you choose.
Games on Ati Mobility Radeon X300 Ubuntu 9.04, why some work and why some don't?!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 18, 2009
I've been trying to find an answer, or rather a solution to my problem.
I am browsing through the forums and I see all kinds of posts about my problem with 20 different not-really-solutions.
It seems that old ATI cards aren't supported by ubuntu 9.04.
I'm running 9.04 on an Inspiron 6000 with an ATI Mobility Radeon X300
I can play stuff like OpenArena. I can enable Compiz even on extra everything works fine.
I can't play stuff like Tibia or Graal cause I get errors like this when I try to start.
X Error of failed request
Why can I run intense games (for my laptop that is) like OpenArena and why can I use compiz, but why can't use simple top-down 2d games like Tibia/Graal/etc... ?
Is there a reason and more importantly a general solution for this problem or doesn't even Ubuntu support older graphics cards anymore?
Thanks in advance
Pgadmin on Ubuntu 10.10 Why no support for Postgres 9?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 16, 2011
I am in the process of looking to migrate my PC from Windows 7 to Ubuntu 10.10 as I like it and i find it a little quicker than Windows. One of the major failings I find at the moment is software app support. I am setting up some PostgreSQL 9.0 servers (to do streaming replication) and using pgadmin to do the management.
Under Windows this app works great, but under Ubuntu it seems the standard package only supports up to 8.4, and looks like support has been dropped for pgadmin on Ubuntu.
What I can't understand is the open source movement isn't supporting itself - or is it that because 10.10 is not on LTS, they are waiting for the next version to update the package - anyone know?
If its not supported then back to Windows I go, because I know the latest version works fine.
Anybody any ideas?

Well I always hated linux but thats what most windows users would say too. But little do windows users realize what the tru power of linux can do. I mean I discovered the love of linux because of ubuntu. heh I am even creating my own ubuntu based distro but more on the side like ubuntu studio but for music listeners and stuff like that. well lets say I got the live cd working just have to figure out how to customize the install cd without getting to messy. I own a web hosting company that is unfortunetly under the weather (server admin gone) so I might have to turn one of my computers into a server. If any one is interested helping me make my ubuntu distro email me at thibeaz [at] gmail.com the project I am going by is ubuntu multimedia center

Ubuntu to Mepis, why? Page 4

ndiswrapper is for wireless cards.
As far as the whole "which distro and why" discussion, it all boils down to "use what works for you".
My distro of choice is Slackware, not because it's inherently "better" but because it's better for me. I could spout off all of the reasons why I prefer Slack but they would realy only mean anything to me. They may or may not apply to you.
While I find Mepis (and Debian in general) to be a bit sluggish, Mepis is an excellently thought out and packaged distro. Warren and Co. are are shooting for an easy to install, easy to use distro for people migrating from windoze to Linux and they've done a superb job of it.
My perception of the "sluggishness" is due primarily to the fact that I use custom compiled software and configurations, not because of any problem with Mepis or Debian itself.
I like Mepis for what it is. I didn't care for Ubuntu when I tried it. As with all things "distro" it's
