Linux is great. It always gives me an extra year out of hardware that would otherwise get passed on to the family. But one thing that annoys me is nice and process priorities.
Running big cpu-bound jobs, I often make use of nice to shunt the priority to 19. But even with this lowest priority, my heavy-duty jobs get in the way of regular use of my platform. What I'd like to see is a nice 30 or a nice 300 or let's really go to town and have a nice 3000! :-) This is a way of saying, I really don't want this process consuming resources until I'm not around. "Go use at or cron" you'll probably say. But that's missing the point. I don't know when I'm going to be around. The closest solutions so far are the number-crunching screensavers (like SETI). Ok so I can run my bigs jobs as a screensaver, but shouldn't this kind of resource management be part of the kernel?
I had an idea which I believe would help all users if implemented in the OS level. Currently if you want to manipulate a file/resource which is a remote computer, it is not easy to do it. you should know the application that handles that protocol and any switches you may need for that application. But there is already an answer to that. You can use URIs to refer to these resources.
e.g. when you want to copy a file from a remote computer to your computer you should use
i tried to create my account and i received message that password was sent to my email, but i didn't receive it. i tried to generate new password but i also didn't get it.
my login is morgwai and my email should be morgwai at wp dot pl - maybe i've made a spelling mistake in it, but i don't think so...
thanks and regards
I was viewing the "Linux: Removing the Philips Webcam Driver" article (http://kerneltrap.org/node/view/3729#comment) and changed the "Comment viewing options" from threaded list to "Flat list - expanded", then clicked "Save Settings".
After that another article appeared, instead of the same on , just with different comment view.
Now when I am typing this , I tried it again, and now after clicking "Save Settings" I got to the FAQ (http://kerneltrap.org/faq?PHPSESSID=cdbed1183d2a3bcbb898c62ca55744f5)
Hi, I'm not an expert user, this days I try to install gentoo on my laptop, and is was something (I don't know really how to explain it) but bootstraping the system, it was a very dificult for me.
The situation is:
gcc compiler knows how to optimize programs
we have a lot of scripts and programs that tell us wath are the flags that we can activate or not, to compile to our architecture, and developers can tell us what are the flags that we cant use to optimize software, ok.
