PhaquiLaptopairtonix, can't you think of anything? :(00:06
Ryuho-campusthiebaude, yes, from 510MB to 1GB does it make a noticeable difference if i'm just browsing web and playing music00:06
airtonixPhaquiLaptop, I always played wow on a dual screen set in window mode so i could use vent and firefox...00:06
bobertdosnalioth: /var/logs contains every log in the OS, pretty much00:06
PhaquiLaptopI know there exist dosens of these programs for windows...00:07
naliothbobertdos: any idea which one to look at ?00:07

airtonixPhaquiLaptop, not entirely00:07
PhaquiLaptopbut this is a known problem it seems00:08
PhaquiLaptopwhy isn't there any fixes? :(00:08
airtonixPhaquiLaptop, it's an issue with wine and the game...00:08
jribDeiselton: depends on your setup.  Try setting the appropriate DISPLAY value (echo $DISPLAY on your second screen and see if it's different than when you do it on the first screen)00:08
PhaquiLaptopisn't there a functionality in gnome or anything?00:08
bobertdosnalioth: not really, I'd guess boot, syslog, or syslog.0, maybe faillog..........00:08
PhaquiLaptopit isn't an issue with wine and the game, because the game doesn't have that feature00:08
jribnalioth: a crash or your system just decided to shutdown?00:09
PhaquiLaptopwine works perfectly. the game works perfectly.00:09
airtonixPhaquiLaptop, it is an issue with wine, since it's "dont let mouse leave window" feature doesnt work00:09
PhaquiLaptopooh.. yes, I have tried that feature00:09
PhaquiLaptopbut there should exist some sort of other solution..00:10
naliothjrib: it did not shutdown properly.  it did what it would do if you unplugged it.  CLICK00:10
airtonixPhaquiLaptop, i assume your running with only one monitor and the wine screen is not using 'emulate virtual desktop' ?00:10
PhaquiLaptoplike an external program, or an option in gnome, for instance00:10

airtonixPhaquiLaptop, the issue is related(i assume) to how the mouse still sends movement vectors even though its at the edge of a screen...this is wines fault00:11

jribnalioth: you could let it run off of a known good version of the live cd and see if it happens still.  Then you would be closer to knowing if it's a hardware issue (I'd run a memtest and check the fans).  No ideas otherwise about getting more info though00:15
LaQuirrELLanyone here that can talk to me about ntfs-config and the fstab file?00:15

mefisto__FAJ: you're confusing partitions with disk space inside those partitions01:12
juroFAJ, jrib, histo. looking at the system monitor, the biggest blocks are about 512mb for VMWare and 266 MB for firefox - other than that most of the others are way under 100MB ..01:12
histog00dfella: also there is no reason to do what you are doing as you can rsync from the one you are on to the other.01:12

g00dfellaoh... let me try that... the reason i'm trying to do this in the first place is because every time I try to copy a specific file on this machine it hangs the ui except for the mouse, so I figured i'd try to send it through the other machine01:13
histog00dfella: you could do that and you could also use scp01:14
roukounhttp://paste.ubuntu.com/53331/ can anyone help with this?01:14
FAJmefisto__:  ok,  so right now he has / with 36 gbs, and when he opens up gparted it says that it only has 6 gb's open give or take,,, but he has about 30 open b/c he never added anything new01:14
histog00dfella: rsync is more for making a mirror on the remote system. Like syncing two directories ...01:14

histojuro: One disadvantage of 64-bit architectures is compared to 32-bit architectures the same data will occupy more space in memory (due to larger pointers and possibly other types and alignment adding). The increases in the memory requirements of a given process can have implications for efficient processor cache utilization.01:16

jribjuro: linux tries to be smart about using your memory.  If it can use it it will.  The idea being that it is doing you no good if you aren't using it.  If another app needs the memory, it will free it up01:21

R_YoYo_Rhere is the thing. ... i have used alot of distros ... freeBSD gentoo LFS ... i have compiled to compiler that compiles the compiler ..... ... ubuntu is great if you have no TIME06:41

savage-if I'm running tar czvf to tar up a bunch of files and then cancel it in the middle with control-c, that shouldn't somehow affect the actual files that I'm tarring up, right? (ie.e., no harm to those files) ?06:42

AussieGuyhi, if I ssh into a server that has a hardware setup the same as a server I have here, how would I go about using rsync to clone the local server to the remote one?06:43
gnuskool[Slug]: good idea, i did that for a while and its the best thing i ever did06:43
jamesishAussieGuy: look at the delete-after flag. I tink that'll help you out./06:44

SuperQAussieGuy: what do you mean by clone06:45
gnuskool[Slug]: yeah, you learn the how and why, instead of just clicking stuff06:45

AussieGuythen ssh into the remote server and use rsync to clone the local server to the remote one06:46
[Slug]and believe it or not im running a nslu2 hacked with unslung hehe!06:46
SuperQAussieGuy: Ahh, so it might be a bit more trouble, but I would simply duplicate the package listings and then rsync config files06:46
AussieGuyive got the kvm stuff all worked out already06:46
SuperQAussieGuy: You can use "dpkg --get-selections" to get a package list out of the "from" server06:47
AussieGuysuperq: the local server doesnt have to be running, cos its a virtual machine06:47
jamesishAussieGuy: It's doable. If you have space, loook into doing a dd of you current drive to an isio06:47
AussieGuyI could probably extract its files into a folder06:47
SuperQAussieGuy: Still, it may not be a good idea depending on the type of VPS they use06:48
jamesishAussieGuy: Then unpacking the iso via ssh onto the remove.06:48

Doonzkinda a dumb question. But is 1 core on a quad core 2.4ghz better than a single celeron at 2.4 ghz?06:49
SuperQAussieGuy: I personally think that is a bad idea, but if they recommend it, maybe they have instructions06:49
AussieGuythey said do a one time install of a secondary os (ubuntu server) then ssh into it, and rsync over my changes06:49
badfishhow do i change my default dvd player to ogle?06:49
SuperQDoonz: Not a fair comparison06:49
jamesishDoonz: can't imagine so, as it doesn't hav eprivileged access to the L2 cache. THough most quad cores increase the amount of L2 cache to compensate, now I think about it.06:49
SuperQDoonz: since the core in the celeron has a lot of other changes besides being "just one core"06:50
Doonzyeah not sure why i didnt think about it06:50
SuperQAussieGuy: Yea, I don't know enough about the setup to give you specifics06:51
SuperQAussieGuy: rsync is fairly easy, the man page is good06:51

airtonixwers, you have to first specify a folder in the transmission config for where downloads are stored, then you load up transmissionm, then you move the current data for a torrent to that download folder and then..you load the .torrent file and press go/save/download08:29

airtonixaskvictor, then can you : ls /var/cache/apt/archives09:00
airtonixIamSOG, do a search with google for : ubuntu uuidd09:00
airtonixIamSOG, throw in ubuntuforums as a keyword also09:01

Curious-Tuxhi, how could i install 3ds max in ubuntu with wine?09:05
xiaopiCurious-Tux, forget about it :)09:05
Curious-Tuxxiaopi: why?09:06
xiaopiIF you're serious about using 3ds, dual boot your comp09:06
jim_pCurious-Tux: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=application&iId=343 after all these critics here, i would not even bother burning to disk09:06
Curious-Tuxxiaopi: i'm using 3ds max for 7 years and it's very bad if i can't havi it!09:06
xiaopiKeep on using windows then09:07
jim_pCurious-Tux: dual boot then. virtualization lacks 3d acceleration09:07
Curious-Tuxxiaopi: nope09:07
pyrohotdogIt's an external usb drive.09:07
C0p3rn1cCurious-Tux: don't know about 3ds but I recommend you to install wine-doors , it's a tool that makes it very easy to install wine apps09:08
xiaopiAnd 3ds is mainly developed for windows, so chances to see a port aren't around the corner09:08
jim_ppyrohotdog: is it listed in lsusb?09:08
xiaopiMaya is cross platform though09:08
Curious-Tuxxiaopi: really09:08
pyrohotdogjim_p: negative.09:08
xiaopiYeah that's the closest thing you'll have09:08
jim_pCurious-Tux: i use premiere and photoshop for my job, thats why i need dual boot09:08
jim_pCurious-Tux: sometimes its the only way09:09
C0p3rn1cjim_p, photoshop runs fine with wine09:09
xiaopics3 had some issues, but cs2 always worked fine09:09
Curious-TuxCurious-Tux: yeah.. where could i find about dual boot?09:09
xiaopi(exept some plugins that jus crashed :)09:09
jim_pC0p3rn1c: i prefer native running. faster, more fluid09:09
xiaopiDual boot is when you install linux and windows at the same taime09:10
C0p3rn1cit's all very easy to install with wine-doors09:10
jim_ppyrohotdog: is it listed as a drive in fdisk -l ?09:10
Curious-Tuxxiaopi: mmm...09:10
airtonixCurious-Tux, have you not used blender?09:10
pyrohotdogjim_p: Nope.09:10
Curious-Tux airtonix: yes i have09:10
airtonixCurious-Tux, blenders bone system pwns 3ds09:11
Curious-Tux airtonix:  but it's more difficult!09:11
TzahiI have a question09:11
C0p3rn1cjim_p, it runs pretty fluid here09:11
airtonixCurious-Tux, you can always return to windows :)09:11
passiveI've managed deleting and installing Gnome and it still doesn't work!!!09:11
Curious-Tuxairtonix: oh don't say it... i hate windows and love ubuntu :d09:11
Daft_Punkairtonix, found solution. run script at this forum 4th post down (compizplugins4.sh) http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=820802&highlight=compiz+plugins&page=409:11
jim_ppyrohotdog: plug it out and plug it back in. what does " dmesg | tail " say at that time? (you run it AFTER you plug it)09:12
Tzahimy wireless card changed it's name from wlan0 to eth1 is it a problem?09:12
airtonixCurious-Tux, then i suggest you learn to use blender...many a pro move maker have done so09:12
jim_ppassive: then its the fglrx fault09:12
xiaopiWell use windows and run ubuntu in a full screen virtual machine09:12
xiaopiIf you computer is powerfull enough (chances are if you run 3ds)09:12
passivejim_p: there's no fglrx phrase in the xorg.conf09:12
Daft_PunkCurious-Tux, install windows using virtualbox OSE (a virtual machine) works great for running windows only apps :) (i use it for photoshop)09:12
Curious-Tuxairtonix: i am programmer... my friend want 3ds max... ok.. he can use maya too ;)09:12
jim_ppassive: can you post it somewhere?09:12
passivelike where?09:13
Curious-TuxDaft_Punk: really? how?09:13
xiaopiDaft_Punk, virtualbox doesn't support 3d accelerated softwares :)09:13
airtonixCurious-Tux, look at the orange project : http://orange.blender.org/background09:13
euw3648Daft_Punk: you would have no 3d in virtualbox, so no 3ds09:13
* Daft_Punk cries09:13
pyrohotdogjim_p: Device offlined - not read after errorr recovery09:13
xiaopiAnd SUN clearly isn't focusing on 3d now :09:13
jim_pDaft_Punk: virtualbox is good for apps that dont NEED 3d. there is no 3d accel in vbox09:13
C0p3rn1cwindows runs great using vmware, it seems faster than running faster as my old native install :)09:13
airtonixeuw3648, doesnt vmware have 3d accel?09:13
euw3648airtonix: no09:13
C0p3rn1cmaybe it's because I have a 64 bit system09:14
xiaopiairtonix, does but too slow to run 3ds in a VM09:14
passivejim_p: this the xorg.conf http://pastebin.com/d7fc1556209:14
jim_pi think that no virtualization product has 3dacceleration... yet09:14
Curious-Tuxairtonix: yeah.. i've seen09:14
euw3648xiaopi: vmware does 3d accel? since when?09:14
airtonixC0p3rn1c, and thats as far as you will get .... anything that requires 3d will slow down...since there is no direct access to the 3d card09:14
anaklnHello all, i am trying to play counterstrike, problem is, i need the '-steamlocal -cstrike' option added to the commandline in wine. how do i get this done?09:14
xiaopi1 or 2 year (you just had to manually edit the config file of the vm)09:14
jim_p3d acceleration is in the future plans of every virtualization maker09:14
xiaopiwith last workstation 6.5, it supports up to dx9 and shaders209:15
C0p3rn1cno vmware doesnt have 3d acceleration atm09:15
euw3648jim_p: but none of them managed to do it09:15
xiaopiyes it does..09:15
ubottuAs you can see, this is a large channel. If you're speaking to someone in particular, please put their nickname in what you say (use !tab), or else messages get lost and it becomes confusing :)09:15
airtonixCurious-Tux, http://www.theorangeproject.net/09:15
C0p3rn1cxiaopi: nice , I did not know tat09:15
C0p3rn1cyeah I was using vmware-player09:15
xiaopivmware-player alone does too from last year option just isn't in the GUI :)09:16
passivejim_p, and this is the old backup  http://pastebin.com/d2dad25c509:16
euw3648jim_p: and if virtualization is also used for security reasons, direct hardware access (which is needed for 3d accel) is a very bad thing09:16
airtonixCurious-Tux, woops...wrong site09:16
jim_peuw3648: we may see it in the near future. when i started linux, compiz was like "look what we managed to do :O" and now everyone has it09:16
Curious-Tuxairtonix: yeap :d09:16
jim_ppassive: do you have fglrx installed?09:16
passivei deleted it09:17
C0p3rn1cxiaopi: are you also running a 64 bit system?09:17
xiaopiwe won't have correct gpu virtualisation until GPU manufacturer dev a chip for it (like vt-x)09:17

xiaopiYes i do09:17
jim_ppassive: Driver"vesa"09:17

jim_ppassive yea09:33
ogzyeuw3648, as i said there is nothing related with eth09:33
jim_ppassive: note that mine has to do with a tft monitor09:34
passiveand restarting x again right ?09:34
euw3648ogzy: then the eth* interfaces are set up by network manager09:34
passivei'll set it to 1024*76809:34
ogzyeuw3648, and normally there isnt any entry for other interfaces at the interfaces file, network manager automaticaly handles them09:34
euw3648ogzy: if you don't want that, you have to remote the network manager package09:34
airtonixogzy, not always true...09:34

euw3648ogzy: then use that. 64bit gets you nothing on the desktop except you have 4GB+ ram and very big file09:47
airtonixpfo, make a post on the forums describing your situation and provide pastes from : lspci -vvv09:48
pfoairtonix: did you read what i said?09:48
sullyva86airtonix:  I don't think i have the ubuntu ucf enabled09:48
ogzyeuw3648, i need ti solve this problem :)09:48
airtonixsullyva86, ucf?09:48
pfoairtonix: i don't have any problem with general sound output.09:48
pfoairtonix: damnit.09:48
euw3648ogzy: why does it have to be 64bit?09:48
sullyva86airtonix: The uncomplicated firewall or whatever they call it thats included with ubuntu09:48
pfoairtonix: it's something ac3/liba52 specific.09:48
airtonixsullyva86, get rid of it ...firestarter is better09:49
pfoairtonix: i removed all rc files for kaffeine/mplayer/libxine1.09:49
airtonixsullyva86, firestarter and ufw, are just frontend guis to  the underlying firewall that is already insatlled....which is called iptables09:49
chameleoni installed vfstpd and i cant work out where the config file is for it i can actually log into it from my windows ftp client, filezilla but its preveneting me from transferring any files and i think is the case as i can only login as anonymous09:49
airtonixpfo, sorry cant help you im afraid09:50
pfoairtonix: np, thx anyway.09:50
airtonixchameleon, tried using the locate command to search for the conf files?09:50
Ademanis there any way to get mplayer to play files mounted using gvfs ssh ?09:50
airtonixchameleon, $ locate vsftp | grep conf09:51
chameleoncheers airtronix09:51
sullyva86airtonix: Do i need to remove ufw before installing firestarter?09:51
euw3648airtonix: why not simply list the files of the package? dpkg -L vsftp09:51
airtonixchameleon, another way might be to read the man pages for the program, they usually list the conf files paths09:51
airtonixsullyva86, dont think so, just stop it but you can if you want09:52
airtonixsullyva86, ufw is mainly for use on ubuntu machines without a screen09:52
chameleonyeah airtronix, i cant work ou two things where the vfstpd folder is after the install and how to view the man pages and how to edit teh conf files09:53
sullyva86airtonix: I actually have gufw a graphical frontend installed for ufw but never turned it on cuz i didn't think i needed it.09:53
chameleonim sorry im asking so many questions im trying to get this done in a hurry usually iwould just sit and read09:54
airtonixchameleon, euw3648 has suggested that you use the dpkg command to list the files : dpkg -L vsftp09:54
amorphous_does anyone else have issues with printers stopping working using hplip09:54
euw3648chameleon: dpkg -L vsftpd09:54
Lofde_I love leaving my footprint on the web :) Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv: Gecko/2008092515 Ubuntu/8.10 (intrepid) Firefox/3.0.109:54
airtonixsullyva86, imo gufw is a poor replacement for firestarter...only the cli portion is worth holding onto if you run a server and dont want to enable x-forwarding09:55
euw3648Lofde_: this is not the web09:56
sullyva86airtonix: So is there a way to just use the ICS without leaving the firewall on? I'd hate to have to open ports on a firewall and a router.09:56
chameleoneuw3648: dpkj command doesnt work saying command not found09:56
euw3648chameleon: dpkg, not dpkj09:57
airtonixsullyva86, you dont have to open ports by using firestarters ics09:57
airtonixsullyva86, unless the machine making use of your ics requires ports to be forwarded09:57
sullyva86airtonix: I know. I mean now that i installed this firestarter am i going to have to configure it so it doesnt block bittorent and other apps etc.09:57
sullyva86airtonix: Since before i was running zero software firewall.09:58
Lofde_thanks euw3648  ;)09:58
airtonixsullyva86, set your torrent ap to use a dedicated port and open that port09:58
airtonixsullyva86, then set your router to forward that port...09:58
airtonixsullyva86, you always had a firewall running....firestarter is not a firewall..only a config app09:58
sullyva86airtonix: No everything is already working i'm just asking if installing firestarter is going to block all that. Yeah but i had it turned off.09:59
chameleoneuw3648: dpkg command saying not installed, which is funny i just did an aptget and it downloaded and installed some dependencies i have logged in with filezilla09:59
airtonixsullyva86, i can only suggest that you experiment and find out09:59
euw3648chameleon: dpkg -L vsftpd    says it is not installed?10:00
sullyva86airtonix: Oh ok thats10:00
sullyva86airtonix: thanks*10:00
airtonixsullyva86, but from memory... if your using upnp then i dont think you do need to worry about opening ports.10:00
upnPADhey all, does anyone know the font used in http://www.ubuntu.com/files/u3/helpmenu.png I've never used ubuntu, it's just that the font is really easy on my eyes10:01
sullyva86airtonix: Yeah im sure about that im just wondering about other services etc. I'll just try to remember its on now and if stuff doesn't work to configure it lol.10:01
airtonixsullyva86, but you will get better transfer peformance by using a dedicated port10:01
airtonixsullyva86, have a read of this forum post : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=51081210:02
kongoveIs there anybody like Python?10:03
sullyva86airtonix: Nope10:03
airtonixsullyva86, nope what? no you didnt read the post or no you wont get better peformance when specifying a port to use?10:04
{g}Hey People! Is it safe to assume, that a user without root privilieges cannot restore a deleted file, even if he was the owner of the file?10:04
sullyva86airtonix: Post looks interesting i'm glancing over it. I think i already use a dedicated port cuz UPNP wasn't working for me or something.10:04
airtonixsullyva86, imo upnp is also a security risk10:05
euw3648airtonix: ACK10:05
rebel_kidwhat is the package for pureftp, sudo apt-get install pureftp doesnt work10:05
sullyva86airtonix: So is leaving ports open10:05
airtonixrebel_kid, apt-cache search ftp | grep pure10:05
IntuitiveNipplerebel_kid: pureftpd ?10:05
euw3648rebel_kid: apt-cache search pureftp10:06
airtonixsullyva86, which is beside the point since upnp opens ports that you dont know about10:06
euw3648rebel_kid: the package name is pure-ftpd10:06
kongove"apt-cache search" can help us find the right name of the software.10:06
rebel_kideuw3648, u said it just as i found it :)10:07

airtonixsullyva86, so when monitoring traffice with something like jnettop or etheral...how would you know that port 58333 is for torrents when just yesterday maybe it was 3222210:07
* euw3648 wonders why so many people use stupid protocols like ftp10:07
sullyva86airtonix: Oh yeah it just opens ports whenever? I'm no expert I just know its more convenient.10:07
sullyva86airtonix: If you set your client to stay on one port and not to randomize right?10:07
airtonixsullyva86, mhmm and what did we learn from windows, safe-sex & fast food  about convienence?10:07
airtonixsullyva86, jokes10:08
sullyva86airtonix: Some of that safe-sex stuff is overblown too haha10:08
UnionPivoairtonix, use netstat -p it shows you which programs are using which port10:08
ken_do_sangood evening all10:08
sullyva86airtonix: Do you know what package i need to install to enable the dhcp function of firestarter?10:08

shyam_ki was surprised to see ubuntu working on an ntfs partition..as my friend installed ubuntu inside windows..anyway thats pure virutalisation and not that much recommendable for not-so-high-end pcs right?10:12
euw3648shyam_k: that's no virtualization at all10:14
stdinshyam_k: it's not virutalisation exactly, it just uses a file on a partition as a fake hard drive. the only thing that would be slower is disk access, the rest should be the same10:14
euw3648shyam_k: it just runs from a loop-mounted file on the ntfs partition10:14
euw3648shyam_k: which is of course slower than having the filesystem directly on a partition10:14

shyam_ki mean booting from the live cd ..10:15
shyam_kok and its not yet to make ubuntu/other GNU/Linux to run on ntfs right?10:16
shyam_kor i heard still ext3 is the best or something.10:16
stdinit doesn't run on ntfs exactly, it still uses ext310:17
euw3648shyam_k: ntfs can't be used as a native filesystem under linux. many things like ownerships, device files etc. would be missing10:17

yepyepI've a very minimal X terminal distribution working now (I don't know the linux core if it's debian or other)10:56

bazhangagent, well you can associate the ap and then it will pick up the strongest one most likely11:34
bazhangagent, but if the essid are the same there is nothing you can do except hope11:34
euw3648bazhang: ...or use iwconfig11:35
bazhangeuw3648, but still need to hope it gets the stronger one as they are identical and no mac filtering he mentioned11:35
agentbazhang, you know, nm-applet has something really wrong with it.... because even if i edit the nm-applet settings via nm-editor and put in the correct ap hw address, it still refuses to connect to that ap (even though it has by far the strongest signal).... iwconfig works fine...11:36

Rioting_pacifistbut im not 100% sure, ext3 is preferd to ext2 but if you dont crash there is no real difference in using ext2 over ext312:17
[Slug]time for coffee12:18
redheatwindows should read it, but it doesn't..and it just gives me that stupid non-formatted nonsense..and by the way this is not related to any distro..12:18
Rioting_pacifistIamSOG: it may be as it comes with compiz running by default but 7 doesnt12:18
DigitalFizext3 has journaling which is a big difference12:18
coder__ubottu, thx :)12:18
ubottuSorry, I don't know anything about thx :)12:18

IamSOGthanks Rioting_pacifist ... um.. compiz...12:18
redheatI mean it happened with Mandriva, Opensuse, Ubuntu, gOS, Pclinux12:18

IamSOGOh, but I run Xubuntu12:19
redheatabsolutely Rioting_pacifist, and delire..thanks for asnwering..the only drivers I use are fs-drivers..12:19
redheatand they work fine but they're can't detect ext312:20
redheatlook at the first problem on the troubleshoot page..12:20

DimensionsCan some one please tell me about any System monitor tool which stores the output in a text file every few minutes ... I want to monitor a program whcih crashes some times ... how do i keep a check on how much memory and resources its using12:21
redheatthat's exactly what I'm getting..when I ran that program..it told me that the "inode is not 128 but it's 256, so while chosing the formate for my linux partition, I should make sure that its inode is 128..12:21
ubuntu-irhello  i have firefox 3 b 5 in my ubuntu 8.04 , how can i repleace it with firerox 3 final source ?12:22

Rioting_pacifistubuntu-ir: well if your gonig to do a manual install the program is launched by running /opt/firefox/firefox instead of firefox, if you want to cheat (and its probably not a good idea) you can link /usr/bin/firefox to /opt/firefox/firefox12:43
Rioting_pacifistIn my experience with broadcom, distro updates are hit and miss, so dont hold your breath for it to work well in 8.10 unless theres been a recent developement in the drivers12:45

liza0_whats the recommended amount of ram for a system using ubuntu for multimedia, running two database servers for development , apache/php  and tomcat ?12:46
ikonializa0_: depends on the size of the databases12:46
ikoniahow many hits12:46
ikoniawhat sort of multi-media your using12:47
liza0_:say the databases won't consume no more than 3G .12:47
ikonializa0_: how many hits is the webserver getting, how many threads open to the database ?12:47
liza0_mulimedia such as playing and encoding video and audio12:47
liza0_ikonia:maximum of around 3 clients since it is a development machine12:48
ikonializa0_: for the media - the more the better, faster, you can do it on 256 of ram, but you'll be quicker with 8gig, so thats just a speed thing12:48
ikonializa0_: 1 gig should see you safe and reasonably quick12:48
ikoniaobviously the more the better12:48
liza0_i was thinking of 4G and i thought  that may be an over kil in linux12:49
ikonializa0_: I'm just encoding now on a machine with 8 gig, makes a good difference especially for threaded encoding12:49
ikonializa0_: 1 gig is "safe and nippy" 1gig + more = better12:49
