Hi guys! I really hope that it wouldn't be too late to add a few more packages to 3.0- 3.0b3 is already ~100MB over fitting on a CD so why not take advantage of some of the extra room remaing on a single layer, single sided DVD by adding a few of the following to make 3.0 a more comprehensive AV distro? I was very pleasantly surprised to see libdvdcss2 is included with 3.0 - I really wasn't expecting that! That makes dvd95 and dvdrip logical inclusions so we can make good use of it. I was also most pleased to see Blender, Rosegarden, synfig, inkscape but the REAL SHOWSTOPPER omission for me was k3b. Every 64 studio user will want to burn lots of discs and k3b still has no serious competition. k3b isn't fully usable with the extracodecs and lame packages too. I've decided to split the list up into packages that are available in the repos and those that aren't: Missing apps from 3.0b3 In repos: (alphabetical) avidemux devede dvd95 dvdrip gimp-gap gimp-gutenprint gnome-alsamixer k3b + extracodecs lame nautilus-image-converter sooperlooper soundconverter specimen vlc Missing apps not in 8.04/64studio repos: lmms 0.4.3 winff cinelerra cinepaint kdenlive 0.7.2 handbrake w32codecs or w64codecs Get all them in and we have the Linux AV distro to end them all! Now I've inspected the package list I've got to try actually try using 3.0 but its looking good so far! Dan

This is why we have htop as the official 64 studio performance monitor. Run it as needed. unnecessary performance monitoring is just eating resources you could have used to better use.

I installed gnome-system-monitor. When I let it sit on the resources tab for a minute it gradually uses more and mroe of CPU1, I have a dual core. It eventually just hovers at 80-100% with nothing running but gnome-system-monitor. Anyone else expreience this?
