xubuntu 15.10 come on raid0 and encryption make me re-think ubuntu-base responsive.
I have few small ssds around and I need a bigger storage on the boot drive that why I pick raid0 to combine for storage, I am no really looking for speed on this set-up. about the encryption is for security reason in-case of lost or stolen computer make me not worry for un-authorize access data. so we start like this:
In case if you just want on a single disk you can get xubuntu iso from http://xubuntu.org/getxubuntu/#regularand install.
now, you want raid0, get the iso on from ubuntu server 15.10 at http://releases.ubuntu.com/15.10/ubuntu-15.10-server-amd64.iso.torrentand make iso boot-able to install server first.
on the server install first drive, partition a /boot for 500MB as ext4, the rest of drive for a partition for hardware raid. the second drive and third drive is 1 partition for hardware raid.
configure those raid as raid0 or whatever level you like, then make its to encryption ( chose a 20 to 30 characters pharepass for high security)
configure that encryption to LVM then make 1 group that could contain root, swap, and home. then format and mount its according to its set-up.
now install as regular server, may chose its as ssh server, create user... done, reboot
then to add xubuntu GUI to its.
sudo apt-get update
sudo systemctl enable ufw ( for firewall auto start)
sudo apt-get install xubuntu-desktop ( it may take a-while for 500MB download and extract plus install)
done and reboot, login and install following as optional
sudo apt-get install vlc sshguard fail2ban
sudo systemctl disable sshd ( to stop ssh to your server)
turn out I can't disable sshd so I remove it it instead
sudo apt-get purge openssh-server
you may want to install compton to reduce screen-tearing.
sudo apt-get install comtpon ( use it with file I attach)
Xubuntu 15.10 have a great performment, fast cut and paste file to samba as 50 MB/s.
have fun and enjoy.
Edit: somehow the compton setting, it is best with radeon graphics card, mine is radeon 7950 and 8750, its provide no tearing at all. On the nvidia GTX-660ti, still has tearing and cpu process goes much higher on the same application.
OK, so long story short, I'm trying to create a stress script for some work
that script will play up to 12 quicktime videos at any one point. It can organise them all via tiles based on the # of windows and thats all fine. But I also want them to use quicktime x's presentation feature to set them all to full screen.
I have a ghetto script that fullscreens them all very poorly, but I'd really prefer something more efficient, as well as getting them to close.
currently the script that I've been trying to use looks like this
Ok..well posting code doesn't seem to work..lame
so here: http://pastebin.com/Nz3mwDLx
This doesn't open every single window after window 6-9 depending
I know that using document ID's like this must be inefficient, and creating variables in this obtuse way must not be very clean.
using quicktime x and 10.8 (but this should work in 10.7 for sure.
My hackintosh is suffering from a artifacts/ a horizontal line (shifted display) at the bottom of the page of the secondary display when starting to display Adobe Flash in the browser eg. at Youtube or displaying Quicktime-App in OS X Lion 10.7.4. Only system definition MacPro 3,1 doesn't have this problem. I want to have multiple P-states that's why I'm not using MP3,1.
<key>AtiConfig</key><string>Vervet</string> in org.chameleon.Boot.plist. 5770 and vidcard is recognized as a 5770 in System Report. Tried also stability of 5770 in Lion --> 5 hours of Unigine-Heaven-3.0 Demo no problemo.
I've tried System definition iMac 12,2, Macmini 5,3, Macmini 5,1 and removed AppleGraphicsPowerManagement.kext from S/L/E still suffering from the odd line. sound is terrible.
SD iMac 12,2 altered S/L/E IOPPlatformPluginFamily.kext --> ACPI_SMC_PlatformPlugin.kext to Macbook Pro 8,3 for P-states still suffering line
I thought "well OK try my Asus nVidia 9400GT passive!" Installed it with SD iMac12,2 and bammm.... no glithces, artifacts or line when playing Youtube movie or using Quicktime-App. Only performance is not okay. Scrolling in Browser is choppy, Hardware Acceleration in Photoshop CS5.5 is choppy.
Digging through topics here, at Tony's Forum or even Google doesn't help me much ;-(
