Remove the old kernel from Ubuntu November 25, 2007

Posted by sandakith in linux, Open Source.

Ubuntu always keeps the old kernel when it install a new one, just in case this new one doesn’t work well for you.

You can uninstall the old one if you don’t use it anymore :


X@X-laptop:~$ sudo apt-get remove - -purge 2.6.24-17-*

Doing this will uninstall the packages related to the 2.6.15-23 kernel, like “linux-image-2.6.15-23-386”, “linux-restricted-modules-2.6.15-23-386”, etc. But if you have software like VMWare that has some heavy coupling with that particular version of the kernel you should not do this.

** Type “about:config” into the address bar, look for …




Normally the browser will make one request to a web page at a time. When you enable pipelining it will make several at once, which really speeds up page loading.

** Alter the entries as follows:

Set “network.http.pipelining” to “true”

Set “network.http.proxy.pipelining” to “true”

Set “network.http.pipelining.maxrequests” to some number like 30.

** Lastly right-click anywhere and select New-> Integer. Name it “nglayout.initialpaint.delay” and set its value to “0″. This value is the amount of time the browser waits before it acts on information it receives.

If you’re using a broadband connection you’ll load pages MUCH faster now !!
