Re: Slow forum at evenings.

Good news viking777! A new server is not needed, just some optimizations on database and code, see Oscar799's link. So, you can still go on that trip to space :wink:

Re: Is this a bug - Samsung NC10 often crash after katya ??

Intel Atom N270 is not really high-powered CPU. In your output, it lists bmips 3191.69. My Intel Core i5 lists bmips 26337.2. You can't really compare CPU performance that way, but it goes to show there is a huge gap. I can't get my Firefox to use more than a few percents of CPU... Have you updated ...

Re: Where is my taskbar?

Okay, try the following. Run this from Terminal (Alt+F2, type gnome-terminal and hit enter):

Code: Select all

gconftool-2 --shutdown
gconftool-2 --recursive-unset /apps/panel
rm -rf ~/.gconf/apps/panel
pkill gnome-panel
This should reset the panel to its defaults of post-installation.

To clarify; - Linux Mint 11 is based on Ubuntu 11.04 (which is based on Debian), and has GNOME as default desktop - LMDE is based on Debian directly, and has GNOME as default desktop Then you have the various options available for desktops other than GNOME. For Linux Mint 11 that is: - LXDE For LMDE...

You can set a compose key. Go to Menu -> Control Center, and then Keyboard. Click Layout button (IIRC), and there you can choose what the compose key is.

Vincent as for patents being eliminated. Just me ... but don't think that's realistic or ever going to happen. Even if mega corps are filing patents for every combination of 1's and 0's known to man.

Re: unable to login to LinuxMint xfce 201104 64bit

Two things I would suggest from this: 1. Replace the open source nouveau driver for your video card with the binary driver from Nvidia. That might be more stable. Perhaps some Nvidia user can pitch in on this. 2. It looks like you are using Btrfs for some partitions? Please share which, or run "sudo...

Software patent law is a big issue in USA. You could patent using a stick to write letters in the sand on the beach, and happily sue every child who does this naturally. Ugh.

Make sure you have set the correct output resolution for the HDMI (it should match the maximum resolution your display accepts).
