I'm Danish and I study computer science. I primarily develop for POSIX systems. I think Rust is appealing.

comment How do I get amilo-rfkill support on a non-pae laptop? (a.k.a. where to get 3.5 kernels for oneiric)
checking build.log does not seem elegant

how do you see what drivers a specific build contains?

but i don't see any distinct generic{-pae,} packages. i think it's on purpose: lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-devel/2011-November/…

I get an error though, when installing those highlighted packages: pastie.org/4318671

comment Apache 2.4 install on 12.04 ends up with non-standard configuarion
No, how would they be gone? The symlink merely makes /etc/apache2 appear as if it is ALSO at /usr/local/conf/apache2/conf. Of course, if sites-available is a relative symlink pointing outside /etc/apache2, it would probably break. But I don't think it is.

comment Open a new tab in gnome-terminal and have it automatically connect via ssh
why not just set "when command exits" to "exit the terminal"?

&& is bourne shell, it is not a command. you could do sh -c "ssh .. && clear"

comment Size 1280x800 not found in available modes?
was the resolution correct the first time you installed ubuntu? if it was, the resolution should be like back then, if you reboot after making sure /etc/X11/xorg.conf does not exist.

comment Size 1280x800 not found in available modes?
okay, but since the resolution changed, it's a sign that the xrandr stuff is working. the examples in the linked article used 1280x1024, did you do it with that resolution or with 1280x800? to do it with 1280x800 , just copy from the ModeLine i posted (only the second line, and excluding the word "modeline"). it should be the same count of numbers. maybe your monitor manual says what its native resolution is, though?

sorry if i'm confusing you. the three commands from the linked arch wiki article would be quite easy to try though, i think it's definitely worth it.

yes, nvidia-xsettings is a terminal-command, but it should open a window. if you don't have nvidia-xsettings, i don't think you ever had the nvidia proprietary driver. how did you get it? from nvidia's website?

comment Size 1280x800 not found in available modes?
also, you should realize that the three solutions i suggested are not meant to be tried all at once. if the xrandr-stuff works, there is no reason to stop using the nvidia driver.

after renaming xorg.conf, you should make sure you know how to rename it back using the console. when you learnt how to do that, reboot the machine and you should be using the old drivers (not nvidia's). if you don't get graphics after rebooting, you can move the backup back into /etc/X11/xorg.conf .

Try to see if reducing the cache size in Tools->Preferences->All->Input/Codecs helps.

ok, try nvidia-xsettings or adding new resolutions as explained in the updated answer.

comment Size 1280x800 not found in available modes?
I told you one way to fix the resolution: stop using the nvidia driver.

What are you using on the Android to display the stream?

if you lower the bitrate, it might very well be faster. try changing the "800" to "300" and the "128" to "48"
