Intel Core Duo T2400 + Linux

Filed under
Hardware

While Intel's Core 2 Duo is being readied for market with the introduction of Conroe, the Intel Core Duo has been a terrific performer and continues to be with its competitive feature set. However, do these same advantages come when computing under Linux? The processor we will be using to examine just that is the Intel Core Duo T2400, which has a maximum operating frequency of 1.83GHz, 2MB of L2 cache, 667MHz FSB, 65nm process, and maximum power consumption of 31 Watts. Not only have we taken the Intel Core Duo T2400 for a spin, but for a comparison as well we have provided numbers from the Intel Pentium M 750, which comes similarly clocked at 1.83GHz. Housing the Intel T2400 was a Lenovo ThinkPad T60, which had also packed in an ATI Radeon Mobility X1400, 1GB of DDR2, 80GB SATA drive, and 15.0" FlexView screen. The Pentium M 750 was used with a Lenovo ThinkPad R52. Though the specifications are not identical, they should certainly prove to be a viable comparison. Some of the Core Duo benefits include Intel Smart Cache, Digital Media Boost, Dynamic Power Coordination with Dynamic Bus Parking, and Enhanced SpeedStep Technology.

Eclipse Luna for Fedora 20

If you are a Fedora Eclipse user, then you're probably saddened since the release of Eclipse Luna (4.4) because you are still using Eclipse Kepler (4.3) on Fedora 20. Well, be saddened no longer because Eclipse Luna is now available for Fedora 20 as a software collection! A software collection is simply a set of RPMs whose contents are isolated from the rest of your system such that they do not modify, overwrite or otherwise conflict with anything in the main Fedora repositories. This allows you install multiple versions of a software stack side-by-side, without them interfering with one another. More can be read about this mechanism on the software collections website. The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package. Read more
