    Re: anyone try ubuntu 9.04?

    I fixed my second issue by uninstalling Rhythembox. Not a big deal for me, I don't use it. Reinstalling it causes the issue to reappear. Very strange bug.

    Re: anyone try ubuntu 9.04?

    Yea, its snappy and 9.04 correctly detects my video card itself where as 8.04 did not. My PDF issue seems to have been cleared up by using a program other then Document Viewer, so that seems to be cleared up now too.

    Re: anyone try ubuntu 9.04?

    I just upgraded the Phenom 9500 rig to 9.04 (death to ATI and their crappy drivers!) and my PPD production in folding seems to have gone up. I'm getting 9 minutes per frame or 3300ppd which is 400ppd increase over Ibex.

    Re: anyone try ubuntu 9.04?

    You're gonna hate this raider.

    I'm happy to announce that I replaced the nVidia 7300GT video card in my Biostar TF720 A2+ with a Gigabyte HD4670 and it's working splendidly.

    I first tried using the already installed version of Intrepid 64 after uninstalling the Nvidia graphics driver and switching to the failsafe xorg.conf file but I lost the video on the reboot.
    I probably should have installed the ATI driver first.

    Next I tried cloning the Jaunty 64 installation from my Foxconn A7DA-S to a spare Seagate 80 SATA hd since it was running with an HD3870 but I couldn't get past the progress bar.
    I was hoping that it would have automatically loaded the Nvidia chipset drivers but nada.
    Finally I did a clean installation of Jaunty 64 w/ext4 and this time I was able to boot.

    I used the same method I mentioned in this thread plus the latest Flash Player and the ATI proprietary FGLRX driver.
    HDMI sound is excellent and I get no flicker in Hulu.
    I do have some flicker with Google Earth but it stops if I click on the earth graphic and only returns when I move up to the menu or title bar.
    Oh well I can live with that until I find a fix.

    Performance-wise I rate the card somewhere between my other 2 ATI cards (3850 & 3870).
    I decided to go with this because -
    • $82.00 shipped.
    • It comes with a Zalman VF700-AlCu cooler - super quiet.
    • Low power - no additional power connector.
    • Runs cool.
    • 1GB DDR3.
    • Getting ready to move this rig to a 3R System M-Station HT-1100 HTPC case.
    This is my 3rd Ubuntu rig running with an ATI card.
    I'm also using Win7RC on a WD 250 SATA drive.
    Note: I don't have the Compiz manager installed but I am using Extra in Visual Effects which includes Compiz effects like wobbly windows.

    Re: anyone try ubuntu 9.04?

    Good for you. I had an x1900xt which ATI dropped from support since catalyst 9.3. I ended up buying a 9800gt. Now compiz works, google earth doesn't flicker, and I get vdpau acceleration in video playback.

    My laptop is running 9.04 and uses the 3410 mobility card. I'm sing catalyst 9.6, but everyttime I try enable visual effects, I get all kinds of issues on video playback.

    Problem What no Overclocking?

    I've been using ubuntu 9.04 on a dual boot XP/ubuntu. The processor is an intel e2200 overclocked from 2.4 to 3.0GHz on a Gigabyte P35-DS3L board. Ubuntu, and from what I hear other distros, only let's you run processors at standard speed or lower. In my case this is from 2.4 down to 1.2 GHz. I've been looking at a zillion posts - but nobody has an answer. When I boot into XP it runs the proc runs at 3.0GHz just fine. The ubuntu and I expect most distros are aware of this problem, but have no intention of fixing the problem at present. I don't how why?

    Ubuntu is pretty great, and now I have an excuse not to buy an e8500 and overclock it to 4.0 GHz.

    Re: anyone try ubuntu 9.04?

    Well I don't know about Intel processors but the AMD 940 P II in my sig is running at 3.6GHz right now and was running at 3.8GHz until just recently when the temps went up.
    No problem in Jaunty 64 bit.

    Go in BIOS and disable Intel Speedstep.

    Re: anyone try ubuntu 9.04?

    Your CPU is going into a power saving mode. My laptop with is a 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo, nearly always runs at 800MHz, unless its busy. When its busy, it operates at the full 1.6GHz.

    Re: anyone try ubuntu 9.04?

    Thanks Mr. Radar,

    Go in BIOS and disable Intel Speedstep
    Well that kind of helped. Windows is still fine 1.5 - 3.0 GHz
    But Ubuntu/"Mint" now are 3.0 GHZ all the time, not what I wanted.

    So I re-enabled Speedstep, I've been spending most of my time in Mint now and for what I do 90% it's fine. When I have the need for speed I reboot into Windows (where my CPU intensive procs reside.)

    Thanks
    sorry for the delay in responding

    Re: anyone try ubuntu 9.04?

    How are you checking your CPU speed in Ubuntu?

    Use sysinfo. Install as such:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install sysinfo
    Then it should appear in Applications>system tools


    Leave your Speedstep ON in BIOS. Then right click on the gnome panel taskbar on top or bottom and add the cpu frequency applet. Try toggling the different modes. performance/on demand to see how the speed varies.

    Run sysinfo each time to check the speed.

    Re: anyone try ubuntu 9.04?

    Thanks Mr. Radar

    I've done all that. Every thing is Ok, over than it runs full-bore overclocked with speedstep off, or allows freq scaling with speedstep on.

    It's fine, not a major problem for me. Windows XP works perfectly.

    I do spend most of my time on the net with Linux so I can leave the high speed cable connected all the time without real worries.

    Prices on e8400 or e8500's will come down, live Linux CDs are great so I'll try again in a few months.

    Re: anyone try ubuntu 9.04?

    Well I gotta admit when I was wrong. It seems that the speedstep (EIST) was running fine in ubuntu and Mint. The problems was that the freq-scaling application did not show the true overclocked speed, although it did show changes in speed. I ran a bunch of benchmarks that showed Linux running just as fast as my beloved XP along with the CPU cooling that speedstep allows.

    So it works fine, but the Linux freq-scaling display only goes up to Intel "Retail" speed - at least on my setup.

    Re: anyone try ubuntu 9.04?

    When you remove installed programs that you no longer need, does the synaptic manager cleanly remove everything or even command line sudo apt get remove software, or does it leave behind old files and folders?

    I guess what I am asking is how to clean up any leftovers from old software?
