been running ubuntu for a while now. playing WoW. i have ventrilo working (Although you have to have the ventrilo client selected for PTT buttons to work) but what I haven't figure out yet is flash for mozilla.

every time i watch a video in flash (ie youtube) my processor spikes to 100% and then if I'm doing anything else taxing (ie playing wow through wine) its choppy. I have to only have the flash video up and thats it. If i have multiple tabs open all hell breaks loose.

has anyone gotten flash to behave well in firefox??

Computer specs

Athlon 2500 oc'd to 2800
3 gigs of 3200 ram
Nvidia 7800GT OC video card
Asus An7x deluxe (I think... been a while since I looked)

I should not have to have a dual core CPU to watch F^%^&KING Flash video's.... This is driving me nuts...

(&(*&(*&^&*^%*&( U ADOBE!!

I don't think there is a daily job that changes permissions. But you could make a daily job to check them and change them to what you want. See, I think with mailman it rewrites the files daily. Therefore, there should be a configuration for file write permissions. Find that, set her to 775 and you will be a happy fellow.

Well, it looks like I'm still having problems.  The permissions on the Mailman files keep getting changed, and this means that the web interface won't work.

Is there some sort of daily job in Ubuntu that repairs permissions, and is there some way to get it to skip this directory perhaps?

I've worked it out.  So now people can come bug me about it if they have to!

What I'm dealing with now is Mailman and Exim.  I think my problem is a dynamic IP address.  I will be getting a static at some point, but I wanted the thing up and running before then.  Does anyone have any experience with Mailman?

If you just want to serve files, you probably want a samba server running.  This is much easier than you think, although a bit clunky.


apt-get install samba

nano /etc/samba/smb.conf

go down to the bottom of this file and look for the CDROM drive share example, and basically copy that over for whatever share you want to share.  One separate entry per share.

Well in suse your directory would be /srv/www/htdocs

If you are curious the best thing to do would be to find your httpd.conf file it will probably be in /etc/apache  That will tell you where your root directory is.

Well, before I left today I had installed Ubuntu LAMP Server, and then added the GUI so I could use it for other things.  Now I don't really know what to do, or where to put files to be served.  Anybody know a good tutorial for this sort of thing?  I'll be back in to work on it for a few hours tomorrow (before writing a kickass paper to jumpstart my career).

Setting up a forum and a listserv for a national organization, with any luck.  They have absolutely no way for individual chapters to communicate, so our chapter is offering to support this.
