asterismohi everubody15:11
asterismoi need help with something15:11
bdfhjkHi asterismo15:11
asterismoi have an old PC, a P4 2.8 GHz with 512 DDR memory15:12
asterismoi'm planning to use it for work15:12
asterismoand i want to mmaximize its performance15:12
zkriesseOk, what do you wanna know?15:13
asterismoso i'm confused about the better filesystem15:13
asterismoext4, ext3, ext2, jfs, reiserfs15:13
asterismowhich filesystem is a good compromise of speed and sfety?15:14
asterismoi heard that puppy linux uses ext2 filesystem... so that opened the questino to me15:14
zkriesseUhm, I don't claim ANY knowledge of this but I think ext4 for some reason15:14
holsteinext4 is what most OS's default too15:15
bdfhjkif You use last kernel, I think ext4 is the best choice. But I am also not have more knowledge15:16
asterismoi wanted to know what filesistem os less cpu demanding15:16
holsteineh, its linux15:16
holsteini wouldnt sweat the file system much15:17
holsteinthe desktop environment would make an old box feel snappier15:17
bdfhjkMy advice15:18
bdfhjklook what filesystem is used in xubuntu / fluxbuntu15:18
holsteinand thats ext4 default15:18
bdfhjkand server type distros15:18
asterismook, thanks15:32

kerneloops_may I "apt-get remove --purge linux-headers-2.6.35-27 linux-headers-2.6.35-27-generic linux-image-2.6.35-27-generic" ?19:14
hggdhkerneloops_, as long as this is not your active kernel, yes19:14
kerneloops_yeah :)19:16
akernanI have a conky wireless question....I tried the #conky channel but no one was there20:11
kerneloops_back for more20:12
kerneloops_So I am runnung Ubuntu server on a old machine and it's using 2.6.35-28-generic-pae Because my CPU is 32bit?20:14
kerneloops_running sry20:14
holsteinkerneloops_: i did a couple install on my old EEEpc through the years20:14
holsteinactually, quite a few20:15
holsteinand several times20:15
holsteini got the PAE kernel by default20:15
holsteinnot sure why20:15
kerneloops_yeah :P20:15
holsteinkerneloops_: i say20:15
holsteinif it ain't broke20:15
kerneloops_holstein: because it's server edition and they think we will add more RAM20:15
akernanCan you help me with a conky permission issue20:16
pleia2akernan: you can just ask your question :)20:16
holsteinakernan: whats the question?20:16
ubot2Please don't ask to ask a question, simply ask the question (all on ONE line and in the channel, so that others can read and follow it easily). If anyone knows the answer they will most likely reply. :-)20:17
akernanmy wireless is wlan0, my conkyrc works with sudo but not as user20:17
holsteinakernan: well, conky works right?20:17
holsteinits just not spitting out info about your network connection?20:17
kerneloops_akernan: what do you want to with conky?20:17
pleia2some applications require you to be in a specific group to use them (I'm not familiar with conky though)20:17
holsteinas normal user?20:17
akernanyup...I have conky monitoring other stuff....I have a problem with wireless variables20:18
akernanI get unk or zero when I run it as user20:19
holsteineh, maybe not...20:20
holsteinmabye #lubuntu ?20:20
holsteini would ask in one of the lightwieght distro channels20:21
akernanok, thanks20:21
kerneloops_I have a silly question: can I change screen resolution in ubuntu server using /etc/X11/xorg.conf ?20:22
bioterrorwhat kind of server has X ;)20:23
holsteinyou might be able to increase the font size somehow20:23
kerneloops_bioterror: if connected to monitor20:23
kerneloops_it's looking like 800x60020:23
holsteinim usually running them headless20:23
holsteinssh in20:24
kerneloops_holstein: I am too20:24
holsteinand the fontsize in gnome terminal is easily changed20:24
kerneloops_but I was curious20:24
kerneloops_holstein: yes in client side20:24
kerneloops_holstein: it just that I connect a monitor  to server and the resolution looked ugly20:25
kerneloops_thats why I asked about X :p20:25
holsteini would have a live CD handy though20:26
yofelhm, that's somewhat ancient, even the karmic instructions20:27
holsteinyeah, grub is different now kerneloops_20:28
yofelyou can find out what resolutions your card supports for your monitor if you go to the grub command line (from the boot menu) and run 'vbeinfo'20:28
holsteinshould still work though20:28
kerneloops_holstein: I dont have a /boot/grub/menu.lst20:28
yofelafter that set the res in /etc/default/grub as GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX20:28
kerneloops_yeah tks yofel20:29
holsteinyeah, we should update that wiki20:29
kerneloops_:p ok i know the path20:29
yofelfor example I have GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX=1280x800x32 for my thinkpad in there20:29
kerneloops_wait a sec20:29
kerneloops_ /etc/default/grub20:29
kerneloops_that I think20:29
yofelthat you should have, the variable isn't there by default though, so just add a new line for it20:30
yofeland don't set anything that 'vbeinfo' doesn't list20:30
kerneloops_hm need to install it20:31
yofelkerneloops_: no20:31
kerneloops_vbeinfo command not found20:31
yofelyou need to reboot, go to the grub menu, get the command line, and run vbeinfo *there*20:31
yofeliirc there was some other way to get that information too, but I can't remember it20:31
kerneloops_to get VESA thing right20:32
kerneloops_cant I just get that info from the terminal20:32
yofelmaybe, I don't remember how though :/20:32
kerneloops_yofel: right now i dont have the monitor plugged in20:33
kerneloops_I need to right?20:33
kerneloops_or do i just need the graphic card20:33
yofelI think both, but what's your mointor res?20:34
kerneloops_the one im using is 1080 :p20:34
kerneloops_and i think that graphci card supports only 1024x768 16 bit20:35
kerneloops_(the old machine ofc)20:35
yofelhm, no idea then, that might work, but as setting the wrong FB res has potential of breaking things I would rather try vbeinfo when you can try it20:36
yofelmaybe someone else has a better idea20:36
holsteinyofel: i quoted you20:42
kerneloops_so vbeinfo only works in grub terminal?20:42
kerneloops_and there is no other tool to find out resolutions?20:42
holsteinkerneloops_: you can google20:42
holsteinthe device20:43
holsteinmaybe the vendor lists it ?20:43
kerneloops_ok found it20:44
kerneloops_with sudo lshw20:44
kerneloops_description: VGA compatible controller20:44
kerneloops_             product: 264VT [Mach64 VT]20:44
kerneloops_it's an old ATI20:45
kerneloops_holstein: I think I found it20:48
kerneloops_and in Xubuntu I used 16bit to make it faster :P20:48
kerneloops_holstein: so now how do I find out the VGA code20:55
holsteintheres a table at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/ChangeTTYResolution20:56
kerneloops_i must be blind :)20:56
holsteinwell, it might not be what you're looking for...20:56
kerneloops_thanks a lot20:56
* yofel reordered the page a bit21:01
yofelI have the intoductions twice...21:02
