  • nGhost 2.0.0 Final is out!

    It's finally out . you can get it at http://sf.net/projects/nghost/downloads

    NOTE: that nghost now depends on libnghost to compile. I've created some debian packages for linuxice/ubuntu 7.04 and later for both libnghost and nghost packages.

            If you mean from a cold boot, that is very hardware dependant.

              That largly depends on your distro and how it's set up (in addition to hardware). I was able to hibernate/resume in about 11 seconds.

              As for just nGhost, it has virtually no startup time, and switching between screens is fast. One cool thing is that nGhost has 3 memory modes so you can actually make it faster. By default, nGhost caches images as you need them, so it gets progressively faster the longer it's running.

                Problems installing nghost in debian

                  The trick when troubleshooting a compilation error is to find what exact file it's choking on. Whenever you see a "No such file or directory" error during compilation, 99% of the time it's because of a missing dependency. How do you find the missing dependency? Do a reverse lookup of sorts on the file it's unable to find. In this case, googling for "boost/bind.hpp" gives you links to the boost C++ libraries. Chances are, you do not have those libraries installed on your system such that this compilation can just reference them and compile against them.

                  Depending on your distro, you'll be installing slightly different packages. Look for "boost" in your distro's available packages. It might be "boost-devel" or just "boost".

                    I just reread your post, and you referenced depfiles, so you're probably using debian/ubuntu.

                        Thanks All

                        That's why I love Linux, so many knowledgeable people willing to lend a hand.
                        I installed the package and it ran through the installation successfully

                        I have downloaded and configured and installed nghost successfully, but when I try to run it I get an error message.

                        ./nghost: error while loading shared libraries: libnghostgui2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

                        I ran a search and it did find this file in the following directory.

                        # find / -name libnghostgui2.so.0
                        /usr/local/lib/libnghostgui2.so.0


                        Thanks Again

                          seems like it installed correctly, maybe run ldconfig to update so your system knows about it? I know this is a hack but maybe try:

                          ln -s /usr/local/lib/libnghostgui2.so.0 /usr/lib/libnghost2.so.0
