    Are there any Linux experts around these here OS X forums? I loaded Ubuntu 12.10 (64-bit) on a Dell Dimension 9200 yesterday and it's running really slow. It previously had Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) on it and it ran great.

    I know I haven't provided much detail here, but does anyone have an idea of where I can start to look? I'm thinking of reloading it with the 32-bit version to see if it runs better.

    Personally I'd go back to 10.10 64 bit before 12.10 32 bit.

    I can do that too. Why though? I assume its a better running version.

    I haven't run 12.x, but I found 10.x to be lighter weight than 11.x.

    EDIT: What are you doing with this box anyhow.

    I want to use it as a web content filter in my office network in conjunction with my Cisco ASA 5510 using Dan's Guardian.

    So Are you using Ubuntu Desktop or Server? For this kind of stuff I tent to avoid all of the GUi stuff.

    Well I downloaded the desktop version. Should I go for the server version? I don't know a lot of command line syntax for Linux and depend on Internet searches for exact instructions on how to do some stuff. But I am not incapable of learning. I just haven't messed with any Linux distro's in probably 5 years or so.

    I put 10.10 32-bit on it Friday and it's running much better now. However I'm having the darndest time getting Dan's Guardian to install now. I had it installed on 12.10 but now I don't know what's going on.

    I have the package in the Downloads folder and when I run ./configure in Terminal per the instructions I get this:

    Code:
    configure error: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables

    Yep, I was just trying to get logged into MR on the Linux box so I could copy it.

    In this case it looks like you don't have gcc installed at all or it can't find it.

    That's what I was wondering too as I was reading through that URL you gave. Now to figure out what gcc is and how to install that. Seriously, I'm a big dummy when it come to Linux, I need baby steps. :eek::(

    I did get a laugh out of this post on that Linux site where a user compiled Macintosh's "Hello World".

    According to Ubuntu Software Center, the GNU Compiler Collection (base package) is installed. along with a few other related software packages to gcc.

    Can you try building the "Hello World" test as per the linked thread?

    Does g++ exist in one of the directories in PATH as seen by config?

    Code:
    PATH: /usr/local/sbin
    PATH: /usr/local/bin
    PATH: /usr/sbin
    PATH: /usr/bin
    PATH: /sbin
    PATH: /bin
    PATH: /usr/games

    Ummm... what do I type in Terminal to check that? I am able to cd into those directories, but I cannot seem to list what's in them.

    I'd try
    Code:
    whoami
    ls -ltr /usr
    ls -ltr /usr/bin
    
    If you can't see what's in them, you may have a permissions error which would be odd to say the least.

    Does this work? (Enter your password when one is requested).

    Code:
    sudo ./configure

    When I do whoami, I get my username listed.

    Okay with ls -ltr /usr I get the following

    Code:
    drwxr-xr-x  10 root root  4096 2010-09-01 10:03 local
    drwxr-xr-x   2 root root  4096 2010-09-01 10:16 games

    drwxr-xr-x   2 root root 36864 2013-02-08 12:53 bin
    
    gcc is listed under ls -ltr /usr/bin

    Code:
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root   root          7 2013-02-08 11:21 gcc -> gcc-4.4
    
    What do I type to compile the "Hello World" thing?

    Edit: I'm getting the feeling it's a permissions problem with the Downloads folder the package is in from my reading on LinuxQuestions.com. How do I check for the proper permissions?

    Looks OK.

    Create a file simple.cpp with the following contents:

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    using namespace std;
    
    int main( void )
    {
      cout << "Hello World!" << endl;
      return 0;
    }
    Then run

    Code:
    cpp -o simple simple.cpp
    ./simple


    ----------

    Code:
    ls -l
    shows you the owner:group and permissions mask.

    Two options: either compile as root (using sudo) or gain ownership of the source tree with chown.

    I created the file in the Downloads directory and when I run the first line I get this:

    Code:
    myname@myname-desktop:~/Downloads$ cpp -o simple simple.cpp
    cpp: error trying to exec 'cc1plus': execvp: No such file or directory

    I get this:

    Code:
    myname@myname-desktop:~/Downloads$ g++ -o simple simple.cpp
    The program 'g++' can be found in the following packages:
     * g++
     * pentium-builder
    Try: sudo apt-get install <selected package>

    OK, now we're getting somewhere.

    I'd do the

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install g++
    sudo apt-get install pentium-builder 
    Or, install both packages from synaptic/your favorite apt front end.

    I'll try that. I just did this...

    I ran this command

    Code:
    myname@myname-desktop:~/Downloads/dansguardian-2.12.0.3$ sudo apt-get install ./configure
    And I got a whole bunch of stuff like this that whizzed by (and this is just a small portion of it)

    Code:
    E: Release 'configure' for 'libreadline5' was not found
    E: Release 'configure' for 'libreadline4' was not found

    Edi: Ran the second command you said and got this:

    Code:
    myname@myname-desktop:~/Downloads/dansguardian-2.12.0.3$ sudo apt-get install pentium-builder
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree

    Seems like you have a bunch of stuff that isn't installed quite right. :(

    Does g++ on the Hello World work now?

    Well, I think you're right about 10.x being more lightweight. It was so lightweight that it was missing a bunch of necessary programs needed to install certain things, such as what I wanted. :p Since my Linux skills are severely lacking, I don't want to try and install all the missing things. Heck, it took me an hour to get rid of Firefox 3 and install Firefox 18 with the shortcut in the menu bar! :eek:

    So I just installed 12.10 again, only this time the 32-bit edition and it's still just as slow as the 64-bit version. Le sigh.

    I'm thinking about looking for another flavor of Linux, like Debian or Gentoo or something.

    Both are less "friendly" than Ubuntu though so be prepared. CentOS is what the real Linux users use around work, though I long ago gave up on RedHat in favor of Debian/Ubuntu in my own installs.
