power save mode for battery in Fedora 19.

I was getting really bad battery life on my Fedora 19 system, and did not find much on how to tune it. Finally I found something that just does not need much configuration but works pretty well. So, here is what you need to do:

sudo yum install tuned tuned-adm

The second package, tuned-adm installs additional themes for power saving. It is optional and not mandatory. Once you have installed these, you can do the following:

tuned-adm list #List all the profiles
tuned-adm  # Set the profile.

Ubuntu – Really force remove a package.

I was trying to remove a package on one of the Ubuntu installations the other day and was not able to do so. I tried google and tried all the options mentioned in various forums like “-f”, purge, reinstall and few others but nothing helped. I kept getting some errors about some files being already deleted. I also tried “set -e” in the prompt but the only result I got was terminal also getting killed.

Finally I found the only thing that could work for me was to go to directory “/var/lib/dkpg/info”and then delete all files that started with the name of the package. Hope this helps someone.
