Performance of NFS much lower on Linux kernel 2.6.17 then on Linux kernel 2.6.3?
Maybe somebody can help me with this problem:
I export several directories from a Novell server and mount them on a
Linux machine to have some remote backup and storage facilities.
A few years back I have installed a Mandrake 10.0 box with kernel
2.6.3 and after some tinkering the NFS performance was about 3.5
MByte/s on a 100 Mbps full duplex interface card. The FTP performance
to and from that same Mandrake box was about 7 MByte/s.
This year I upgraded my hardware and I installed Mandriva 2006 using
kernel 2.12.12 on the Linux machine. Using exactly the same mount
options I get...[News] Speech Recognition Software/SDK for Linux (2.2, 2.4, 2.6 Kernel)

I got through this mailing list and asked google for several

So, the basic problem is that I have a couple of linux boxes
that need to be synchronized via NTP. Those boxes have all the

Running the kernel 2.4.24 NTP works fine. For various reasons
there is the need to run -- at least a few of them -- with

Have you tried plugging it into the PCI slot, rebooting, and trying it?
Have you visited the ALSA project site to look at support details
for this card?

The splice family of Linux system calls can transfer data between file
descriptors without the need to copy data into userspace. Instead of a
userspace buffer, they rely on an ordinary Unix pipe as a kernel-level
This release adds IO#pipe_size and IO#pipe_size= accessors for
resizing the kernel pipe buffer under Linux 2.6.35+. This
functionality may be used to either reduce memory footprint or
make large copies with fewer method dispatches and system calls.
Th...how to install the Nvidia 4496 Linux driver on a 2.6 kernel
After some Google searching and experimenting, I got the latest Nvidia
driver to work with the 2.6-test4 kernel yesterday, so if you're running
the 2.6 kernel and don't want to wait for Nvidia to officially support
it, here's a mini how-to that worked for me (but your mileage may vary).
This how-to was posted on another web page but it didn't work as
originally written so I "corrected" it based on my results with Red Hat
Assuming you've already downloaded 4496 from Nvidia, are running the 2.6
kernel, and are in init level 3 (no X servers running):

Or is it all the same?

May be the help for linspace should change?
"LINSPACE(X1, X2, N) generates N points between X1 and X2."
Notice, it says BETWEEN.
But when I ask for 2 points, between 2 and 2:
May be mathematically this is ok? i.e. there are infinite points between
the point and itself? (on the real line), but from programming point of
view, it is confusing. no?
Maybe it should say "generates N points between X1 and X2, inclusive."
