Re: Slugglish and hard drive non stop

Just fixed that trial and error, I found the swap lost linkage to the system it is disabled and set to 'noauto' for unknown reason, I enabled it and set to 'auto' now works fine.

Re: Bluetooth file transfer one way only

Thanks for the link, I am using exactly the same phone ! but it seems bit complicated than I thought, if I remember right, the 2 way file transfer is standard support on previous Ubuntu, what I do is only making the DUN works, may be I am wrong.

What Kernel ??

I am running Daryna KDE on a Celeron 866, it should be using generic i386 or i686 kernel, but when I logon another session (ctrl-alt-F2) is said 2.6.22-14 generic #1 SMP, I did not compile the kernel I just use the default, how come SMP ?? is this the reason it is running very sluggish ?

Re: Slugglish and hard drive non stop

Just some times, it is normal now as we speak, btw you have any idea about upgrading the kernel ? I done this before and gained some speed, but I can't find the package now.

Slugglish and hard drive non stop solved

I am running Daryna KDE on a rather old but usable Celeron 866/320M, suddenly it got very sluggish with non stop hard drive activity, I can't even switch task easy so can't tell what takes up so much of resources, it was during Firefox running a flash enabled web page plus playing a VCD, I know this...

Re: Openoffice creates huge Excel file

Thanks for the info., this surprised me much as Linux used to have cleaner codes than windows, if this is not bug I don't know how come the big difference, the OO specific codes should have removed when save as non native format.

Re: Openoffice creates huge Excel file

Oh I don't know about that, my experience was, a 90M PPT open and then saved in OO in the same format reduced to 30M !! IMHO, since my excel is so simple without formula, OO should have removed some unneeded codes to save as smaller size.....

Re: Openoffice creates huge Excel file

Yes there is nothing to do with Mint, but there is such a section people post their question regarding various applications so here I go and try my luck here, it is easier than joining 100+ forums just to get answers for different apps., sorry if you don't feel right about that....

Tried but didn't work for me, Kopete remains the only IM client refuse to connect, Pidgin, aMSN and others work fine, I had this problem for a year now, start from Ubuntu 6.
