    Hey guys.

    I've been using Ubuntu lately for my college course because I'm programming for Algorithms and Data Structures (C) and I have an issue with my Asus Motherboard.

    I have dual boot and every Asus motherboard now comes with the EPU aplication witch is a power saving/management program for the hardware in your computer.

    Problem is when I'm on windows with EPU everything runs smoothly and my computer is the silent thing on earth.

    When I'm in Ubuntu, since I don't have and can't find any Asus EPU for linux, the fan makes my PC sound like a hairdryer.

    Does someone know about any EPU like program for my Ubuntu?

    Thanks!

    So, is arch infamous for it's difficulty to install? That's what I've sort of picked up from these posts.

    I have been trying to make my Xubuntu compatible with the fingerprint reader on my laptop, fprint worked really well, but when I tried making the OS itself use the fprint PAM module, I think I killed it.

    The guide I used said to remove the 2 lines that was inserted during the installation of fprint and libraries and replace them with similar lines. I did that, now my laptop doesn't get to the login screen. It stalls at
    "mountall: Disconnected from Plymouth [OK]"

    Could someone tell me if it's fixable without reinstalling it, or is it even possible to make fprint work with Xubuntu?
    Help it started spewing fire on me-

    Need some help with this still.

    No. Arch is generally very easy to install and even much easier to configure

    You can install and configure Arch within an hour or two.

    If you know what you're doing, probably in less than half an hour.

    Arch guides you through everything. Just keep the wiki up and open the on-disk instructions in another terminal if it's your first time. Between those you pretty much can't fail.

    But indeed, my good friend; I forgot to mention that I referred to first-time installing, going hand in hand with the Arch Wiki.

    As far as I can see, there's no support for the EPU. There should be some power management tools in your repository though.

    I checked it out. Even got to that download manager thing Ubuntu has and I found nothing. I know I can configure my motherboard manually using the BIOS but I'm afraid I might do more harm than good.

    Back on Windows for gaming.
    When summer hits: ARCH!!!! WOOOOH!

    Something I hate is that i installed 64 bit Windows 7, my computer runs it and all but it just seems quite slow. Maybe it's just all the installs i am running trough and downloads. It's like around 10-15 downloads at once.

    For power management, there should be several programs out there such as gnome power manager or xfce4 power manager. As for the fan, I had a program called lm-sensors which could modify the fan speed depending on the temperature it reached so instead of it being on full blast all the time, it would have the fan being on only when it needed to be on. It does require initial monitoring of the temperature to set the fan to start at whatever temperature you're comfortable with.

    Installing Oracle's Java. Why do the instructions keep telling me to do things to a *.BIN file when the download for the self-extracting file keeps showing up as a *.TAR.GZ without a single *.BIN file in it?

    http://www.java.com/en/download/manual.jsp?locale=en
    (Linux Self-Extracting File, 32-bit)

    A *.TAR.GZ shows up, and the only *.SH scripts in there are in bin that handle the control panel. Anything involving help with that specific file deal with a *.BIN file. Converting the *.TAR.GZ to *.BIN doesn't help.

    It's a tarball, which is meant to be extracted, although there's nothing relevant in it. I'd say to check your repository (it should have it), it's a lot easier and will also let you avoid dependency issues in regards to programs that use java.

    I wouldn't be fiddling with Oracle's JRE if I could find it in the Ubuntu Software Center/Canonical repository. Just has the OpenJDK one, and I want to avoid that like the plague if it's possible. I know it's a tarball, too. Extracting it doesn't yield results, and the tarball has the exact same filename as instructions do, not the file type.

    Ah, screw it, I'll pick OpenJDK.

    I turned my laptop off tuesday but apparently it decided to install a bunch of updates it had secretly downloaded.
    It took 20 minutes to finally shut down.

    Y'know, you can set it to only REMIND you of updates, and let you choose whenever to download or install them.

    or disable the update service, so you are 100% sure that you don't get any updates.

    Its supposed to showcase the latest 'n greatest when it comes to FOSS stuff. Its rather strict about proprietary/non-free stuff, so if you depend on non-free drivers or software you might have problems.
    Its a pretty solid distro, though.

    Which isn't the best of ideas.

    Y'know, you can set it to only REMIND you of updates, and let you choose whenever to download or install them.
    It's now set to download automatically and install them when I tell it to. Still, never a bad time to install Linux for the one billionth time.

    Since most updates are security one's, that's like shooting yourself in the foot with a double-barreled shotgun.
    I just wish the update manager in Windows wasn't like a nagging bitch.

    The Linux updaters nag you lot more, telling you to update whenever there's an update to anything you got installed, and having lots of things installed, there's a pop-up every few minutes.

    They don't try to force me to install updates while shutting down my laptop though.
    That's a BIG improvement.
    And that's why I've disabled hybrid sleep AND put my laptop in hibernate mode instead of shutting it down.

    I'm trying out Fedora 14 beta, because I'm curious as to what Fedora has done the past year.
    I still don't like GNome 3 that much, but holy shit this thing booted fast from my USB. It was done booting within like a minute. From a live USB stick!

    Fuck this, I can't be bothered to download the XFCE version. Fedora 17 beta is my new USB repair disk.

    1. Fedora 14 Beta? I'm assuming that's a typo
    2. You can always install XFCE through Fedora's package manager; it's quite easy.

    I'm trying to get desura to work, but cef ends it with SIGILL. I tried to use desurium instead, but everytime I get to the point on compiling cef, I get this error:

    Since you already have experience in Linux, i'd say to go for Arch (not just Archbang) and go nuts customizing it. It's really a lot of fun.
