i didnt bother reading all 5 pages, but im going out on a limb and saying im one of the biggest noobs. my first linux experience was ubuntu hardy......... that was summer of last year. my machine lagged like there was no tomorrow. at this point, i stuck with a dual boot, hardy and vista (which other than being ms, i didnt mind at all). i skipped ubuntu intepid, then when jaunty beta came out, i tried it again. my machine worked at least twice as well as it ever did with anything else. so i said peace out to windows. i was surfing one night, and came across conky, and had to have it.  this in one way or another lead me to this forum. since i had nothing of major importance on my computer, i figured what the hell, lets try !#...........
one thing led to another, and i got rid of my ubuntu partition, and now im a !# man.......

I was thinking other day that I'm actually using Linux for the same reason as I am buying organic flour or fair trade bananas for example, I think it's more ethical than supporting Microsoft's and Apple's monopolies.

sorry, but i disagree. it is after all, a free market system. as much as it may suck for those who dont like what is offered, i honestly dont have a problem with monopolies.

i use linux, because i like to learn things. i know windows, like a married couple of 50 years knows each other. linux is very very new to me, and it allows for more than enough chances for me to learn.

CPU frequency scaling

the light version, is sexy............. nice work

#12 Re: CrunchBang Talk » CrunchBang 9.04? » 2009-05-04 13:39:46

tried it......... reverted back to 8.10
there was nothing wrong with it, at all. it was of course more wonderful work from our fearless leader. i just prefer the way 8.10 looks, and i honestly was too lazy to recreat that with 9.04. but i did play around with it for a bit, and it seemed nice.

edit: just some info i thought i should throw in here too. i did like the panel in the middle of the jaunty version, with space on both sides to still allow for some clicky. i took that idea, and brought it over to 8.10 and added space on either side of my panel to allow for the same thing.

So, Ive been using Linux only for a few months now. I started off with Ubuntu 8.04, but didnt like the fact that it was slower on my HP laptop than vista. I kept it to play with, and dual booted. Then I tried 9.04, and it was faster than vista was, so I kissed (read: punted) vista goodbye. I stumbled across conky, and while trying to get it to work in Ubuntu, I found !#. I thought to myself, I must have this. So I did. (free oss are awesome) Thanks for the wonfderful distro, and to everyone here, keep up the good work.

Above, I am of course, talking about myself. Everyone else here seems to know a lot more than I do. So I pose this question:
Since I mainly use my computer to break my computer, and internet and email, would a 32 or 64 bit system make a noticeable difference?

#24 Re: Tips, Tricks & Scripts » Post your bootchart! » 2009-05-02 15:14:35

there are two, and i know nothing about this. i changed the first, with no noticeable difference, hence me asking about changing the other..............

Anonymous, have you enabled Concurrent booting? Because that helps with dual cores.

edit /etc/init.d/rc and change the line "CONCURRENCY=none" to make it "CONCURRENCY=shell"

Oh! Everyone!

if you know how to edit your grub when it comes to boot, you can add "profile" to the end of the kernel line. You only want it on for one boot, as this makes it profile the boot which takes time, but once you've profiled the boot (so long as you don't profile it every time) then you can shave a few seconds.

should i change all "concurrency=none" to "concurrency=shell" because you just said "the line" implying only one..............
