cpk1no problem
n4chtcpk1: no kidding! i didn't even know about the backport repos. those make me happy.
ubuntuso is there help 4 me , anyway? anybody ?
n4chttoday i shall do what i've always wanted to do; resize my ubuntu partition to occupy my entire drive. now that i have all of my games and apps working perfectly with wine, i no longer need windows -at all-.
vince_#kubuntu-fr
peskyn4cht: thats great, stick it to M$
cpk1hooray n4cht
dualbooting is annoying anyways
peskyindeed, aparently i can run 2 operating systems at once with dual core, i hope thats the case
n4chtthe one game i was most concerned with being able to play was World of Warcraft. I got it working flawlessly with wine, and even have a super-improved framerate. i guess it's because i'm not using an OS that devours almost all of my system resources just idling.
cpk1actually windows always has to use 100% of the cpu
adydashow did you find wine to get going?
cpk1i find wiine to be really easy
peskyyea it nearly always comes up with an error for most apps, i guess i need to configure it better or something
adydasive allways wanted to have a play with it, but never got any further than that
n4chtcpk1: i noticed that recently. system idle processes always eats up every bit of available cpu time, but never reports it as 100% usage. weird.
windows is just poorly designed, i think.
Chousukethat's because it doesn't really eat up the cpu :P
n4chti'll be glad when i'm rid of it.
Chousukeit's just there to show you how much of it is idle.
Heavenquakecpk1: I am back.
cpk1Heavenquake: you have an airlink pci card right?
ChousukeAnd Windows isn't poorly designed, either. The implementation just could be better. :)
n4chtChousuke: i'd assume that if it's idling at that cpu usage, it's processing -something-, even if it's a billion blank lines.
Chousuken4cht: it's not using the cpu
peskyChousuke: M$ are friends with intel so they don't mind making an OS that rapes the CPU, gives people a good reason to buy a faster CPU, which happens to be mainly intels atm
Heavenquakecpk1: It's a Belkin
cpk1hrmm ok well we have the same chipset unless you have 2 wireless cards?
n4chtpesky: which is partly why i only purchase from AMD.
ChousukeI mean, it would be downright idiotic to consume 100% of CPU all the time
cpk1except amd is in bed with ati
Heavenquakecpk1: I seriously doubt I've got 2 wireless cards
peskywell :( today i bought an intel core 2 duo, i had to for battery life, i have always gone amd, this is my first intel pc
Chousukeand no matter what you think of Windows, assuming the implementers are so bad that they would allow such a thing is a bit drastic.
cpk1Heavenquake: ok, then good news, we both have the same chipset
n4chtcpk1: i've never used an ati card before. i hear they're 'alright', but i've been more than pleased with all of the nvidia cards i've had. heck, my old GeForce3 Ti500 with 64mb could run circles around a lot of newer cards.

actionn4cht is running a 256mb GeForce FX 5500 in this system.
n4chtis running a 256mb GeForce FX 5500 in this system.
cpk1Heavenquake: bad news: I have been too damn lazy to get it working yet since I havent needed wireless on my desktop yet
ChousukeOr well
