Hard Drive Usage Goes From 37g To 71g With No Added Programs Installed

Data integrity to heal a filesystem (no fsck'ing around!) - 256bit checksuming to protect data, if ZFS detects a problem it will attempt to reconstruct the bad block and continue on OpenSolaris OpenSolaris has some really exciting technologies that are worth a look at, but in particular is ZFS.

VirtualBox development has accelerated at a feverish pace, I started with VirtualBox 1.3 in 2007 and its come an insanely long way since then. It's so full I cannot perform a system update.

Funky? CPU: Intel Core-2 E6750 - 2.66Ghz (65W TDP, VT) Importance was Intel-VT support, low TDP and a dualcore thats not too high. The system returned: (22) Invalid argument The remote host or network may be down. If you want to make the most of your memory and CPU, you have no option but to overclock your FSB (obviously I'm not responsible if you fry anything).

Find out which user has the most bloat and archive the unnecessary files to another drive and then delete them from your startup drive.You can toss printer crud you don't need. Primarily AMD boards are supplied by NVIDIA or AMD themselves. Motherboard has to Support 8Gb (most boards doo!),  have atleast 2x  PCIe and a PCI slot, it would be nice if the network cards work (gigabit) but no fuss if it Current Setup Currently running an AMD setup with Ubuntu Gutsy (7.10) - I didn't think it would last this long, honest!

Please type your message and try again. I've only got a single partition. The "Backup" (sde1) on the other hand isnt as badly fragmented. Otherwise, the test bench, the tuniq and a pretty shot of my setup at home (no its not clean).

Inside the Library, my subdirectory "Printers" is close to 4GB, most of that being drivers for Epson printers. My setup is rock solid at DDR800, CAS 5-2-2-18 with the E6750 @ 3.2Ghz. Just for kicks I went to Jaycar and bought myself a power usage meter to measure the watts used by the new boxen (see a review of the Mains Power Meter The "Application Support" folder contains 2GB of data for Garage Band and 2GB for iDVD.

Make sure you update the BIOS as OpenSolaris may have an issue with the USB controller being ‘mis-configured' otherwise. Get More Info There are a few caveats that I've come across though using ZFS, one is memory! If you haven't done it in a long time your swap file may have gotten very big.

The existing 65W CPU isn't ideal, instead I'm opting for a 45W CPU instead and this means - looking at the lineup, its going to be a walk down AMD way. This is the third rebuild (hardware wise) in the past 5 years (sheesh its been that long?), but I'm not complaining. I found in a similar situation that a erroneous .mac process ate up all my disk storage (180 GB) Jul 10, 2008 9:57 AM Helpful (0) Reply options Link to this

The new Zeus needs to look at virtualisation a little more. Both these are XFS volumes, to find the health of the two use the xfs_db command to gather some information. $ sudo  xfs_db -c frag -r /dev/mapper/Storage $ sudo  xfs_db -c How many users do you have on the computer? http://tenten10.com/hard-drive/i-have-questions-installed-new-laptop-hard-drive.php Please try the request again.

If you don't currently use GarageBand or iDVD, but may in the future, archive their support files to another drive and then delete them.Do NOT touch the Receipts folder. Overall I've always felt that XFS does provide consistent performance and scalabilty in comparison to the others - but you may think otherwise. The Terminal method will.FrancineFrancineSchwieder Jun 30, 2008 11:27 PM Helpful (1) Reply options Link to this post by NYY96, NYY96 Jul 1, 2008 7:34 PM in response to Francine Schwieder Level I think the most productive thing to do is to log into each user and clear stuff out.

Why would you want to do that?  You wont need to use CD-RWs, delete and put another ISO and whats more, it will install in no time. SiI 3132 Serial ATA Raid II Controller NICs - 2x Intel Corporation 82545GM Gigabit Ethernet Controller (e1000g) I've finally managed to get the GA-MA790X-UD4P on the OpenSolaris HCL list - woo! Ubuntu 6.06 had too many issues with the hardware/driver incompatibilities. I've always been a JFS and XFS fan (previously ReiserFS) until Btrfs goes mainstream (which is one thing to hangout for in Linux Kernel 2.6.29!) and often I'd have a mixture

Would Mac OS X store attachments in my mail application to some strange location on disk? Leave everything else as Auto. As mentioned in an earlier post, grab a copy of UNetbootin, select the ISO you mustered from your local free ISP mirror and throw it inside your USB thumb drive. Firstly its important to ensure that you have correctly installed the CPU and make sure you have the latest BIOS from ASUS - right now, the latest is BIOS 2801 released

The reorganisation algorithm operates on one file at a time, compacting or otherwise improving the layout of the file extents (contiguous blocks of file data). Garage Band is a program I used once to make a ringtone from an MP3 (Which I believe you can now do in iTunes).
