I`m running ubuntu 10.10 32bit (couldnt get 64 for now)
and forceware 290.10

1. what can I use to manage my gpu fanspeed?
nvtools says my card isnt supported for anything(temp,set fanspeed,set clocks)
I`m running the latest one from apt-get (I`l post later with version number)

2. my modified xorg keeps getting overwritten even If I replace it as root
also sudo gedit /ect/X11/xorg.conf comes up as a blank document

regardless of whether I`m nukefission or root

also does coolbits unlock on my 290.10 driver?

3. Is there a cpuz like gadget for linux? Perlmon doesnt have a download link

1. open up terminal, install these two packages:

sudo apt-get install nvclock nvclock-gtk

This program aids in helping with controlling the fanspeed, but it doesn't support the latest nvidia cards, i think the 200 series was the last it was made for. The proprietary driver should adjust your fanspeed like it does in windows tho.

2. by default, ubuntu doesn't have a xorg.conf file. as for it being overwritten, its not being written in the first place or it is being saved somewhere else other than /etc/X11/xorg.conf, in your homefolder, is there a file called xorg.conf.new?

3. perlmon is quite dated, its no longer supported by its developer and when OCN went to the new site, for whatever reason the old links were removed.

you can get info about your cpu with this command:

cat /proc/cpuinfo

you can also install conky and lm_sensors, and configure both, to get a lot of the information that cpuz can tell you about your pc.

1. Install nvidia-settings if it already isn't installed ( if you're using proprietary drivers it should be) .

2. Welcome to xorg.conf. The most hated file in all of Linux. Uhm, you shouldn't really have to mess with it too much in Ubuntu, as it has plenty of tools to do that which are the `safer` way about it for most people still learning. As well your drivers should set all the basic stuff you need.

3. Aside from either knowing your base linux tools and some bash, I think Conky would be your best bet.

X now uses black magic to autodetect the suitable device drivers and xorg.conf isn't needed unless you want to specify something or the autodetection fails.

I'd steer clear of Wayland, it's basically alpha software at the moment. It's about as functional as ReactOS lol

I use vi but I have been known to echo "source code" > filename when I've needed a quick dummy file.
