Hey /fglt/, I'm slowly switching to loonix and besides most things working alright I'm thinking my GPU is shitting the bed. I'm finding new information about how bad it has it everyday because I refuse to give up on fixing this and I'm honestly dead tired of Windows.

So some gaymes and benchmarks are shitting on my hardware to the point they become unfuckable. I have to close them down because everything looks like a powerpoint presentation, including the desktop. I notice that most DEs (including MATE and XFCE which I guess should not be that demanding) stutter every now and then as well. I did everything I could to test this shit out: I played with most driver settings (tearfree, pageflipping, etc), plenty of different amdgpu parameters, kernels from 4.14 to 5.4, many, many different distros, different versions of mesa, different refresh rates (there's been an issue with that on windows as well), under and overclocking/volting and changing shit with radeon-profile, flashing a different BIOS for both the GPU and both mobos I tried, doing all sorts of tests with my GPU over Windows assuming it might be the GPU that's fucked (seems A-OK), I tried nearly everything I could think of, and still do.

So today I decide to use an option in a game that's ill advised because it makes the game kinda laggy and I read on Gallium HUD that apparently the slowdown occurs when "GFX-BO-list-size" is rising like a motherfucker. If I use that option that "flushes the graphics driver buffers", the slowdown is gone. I'm now assuming that all of this happens because of how buffer objects are handled.

I have no clue about much of this, but I'm giving it my best here. I know there's no throttling at least by the info I'm given (full clocks, temps and power consumption usage seem to match out). Is there any explanation for this? Maybe amdgpu on linux is limiting my RX570 more/less than needed and the defaults are wrong? Keep in mind, none of this is happening on wangblows.

Scientific is obviously a better choice for you as you are braindead. It comes installed with everything you need.

Let me give my case for CRUX.

I was looking to install a math program called PDL to do numerics and other programs (PerlMol and BioPerl). It took me a day thanks to the source based package manager hand holding me and having a program in the CRUX repository to automatically make Perl dependencies. But that is not all as there is another program to convert packages from RPM or DEB formats to native CRUX! And much of the scientific applications are distributed in either the RedHat format or the Debian format. So all the software is available in one way or another.

As for performance it comes without saying that it optimized with simple ways to compile everything with specific flags according to your computer processor and adding specific math libraries either globally or per package (!), like enabling or disabling the Fortran library for PDL or in my case disabling a problematic test library which was experimental anyway.

Sure, it takes a few days to get to know the system but there are guides out there that make it easy.

You have 1 million folders with 1 million files spread out randomly of varying names between the folders. The folders all have names that are shared across the folders.

Is there a system that can scan the folders,recognize name patterns, create a proper "FIrstname Lastname" folder, and move all folder contents related to that name from the former folders with the different types of names, to these folders, dynamically.

no, it's like opening firefox and clicking on "update firefox", but for every single program you have installed. It's one of the many uosides of package managers.
The equivalent of windows update would be apt dist-upgrade (I think that's the right command). That one upgrades your actual OS (i.e from 19.04 to 19.10)

Having a blank empty default profile isnt how any one uses firefox though. the point is to make it work for you the way you want it. If everyone was expected to use the basic profile with nothing in it, mozilla would not have an extension framework for the past decade and a half.Even if the default profile works and uses 1mb of ram, it does not change the fact that firefox is not following the settings that are being set are is freely raping my system for no reason.

>the pages you render
They should be sent to memory, hit the 2gb limit then dump out to the ssd cache and go along its way. That is how the usb version workd when version 3 was out. You could tell it to not even use the physical ram and just use a bcache or a swapfile on the usb drive so that the entire firefox session never touched the system you plugged in too

active renders themselves are not limited by your defined memory/disk cache--only the persistent data retained is. you can disable disable caching, it has no effect on the memory a render can consume.

Bit of a *nix noob. I bought a MacBook a while back and played around with Brew and Ncurses a little.
Last few days I spun up a Debian VM on a Win10 box, and seemed to have some sort of hang loading GNOME (just went with defaults, but I know a little about DEs and have used Linux before on an as required basis)
GNOME broke and I couldn't be fucked troubleshooting, just removed it and connecting via SSH
I want to pick up more skills for work reasons, so will likely dualboot. Is Debian an okay choice for diving right into the deep end? I will be trying to mostly work from Bash or Zsh where possible (likely throw on a tiling WM to multitask)
Reason for doing it was a few Linux only network tools, and running from only bash is nowhere near as daunting as I expected, most of my scripting/shell experience has been for Exchange Online

Ubuntu is a perfectly fine distro to start, debian is too but freedumb tards are holding linux back, you'll have best hardware support from Ubuntu/Pop_OS.

Ethernet kinda defeats the purpose of making my netbook useful-er but I'll definitely keep that in mind

Give up. That hardware was underpowered at launch and X over SSH isn't a particularly efficient bandwidth. You'd be better off configuring xrdp on your remote system and using an rdp client on the Atom.

>configuring xrdp on your remote system
Sounds cool
I'll read up on that

Honestly none of this was ever meant to be used practically, mainly just for educational purposes for a time when these techniques will apply.

Thanks anon.

Debian and Ubuntu based distros are always a safe bet, but debian repos are sometimes a little out of date. OpenSUSE also has a good selection.

does neofetch have a hard time detecting the GPU? For me it lists "AMD ATI Radeon RX 460/560D", as if it cant tell if its a 460 or 560

Question: If I install Ubuntu as my dual-boot system (Win 10 is already installed), can I access my Win 10 filesystem from Ubuntu so I can just throw my music library into my Ubuntu music player, or does that not work?

>> No.73811184

I'm currently using Win10 LTSC.
While avoiding systemd, I want to use either Void or Alpine because I hate arch enough to hate artix too.
I like Alpines' use of MUSL libc but I don't know what to think of their fallback to open ssl along with their use of OpenRC with busybox.
Then there's Void with it's original xbps and runit init and it offers both MUSL and GNU libc versions.
I'm just lost here.

What's a good DE for a laptop with no mouse and a 12 inch screen?
I want something with big control surfaces, where I dont have to pinpoint accurately place the cursor on a tiny smudge to close a window.

I am currently using Cinnamon on Mint and it does alright, but the inability to make the menu bigger or change the window decorations sufficiently kinda piss me off.
I tried Budgie, which seemed cool but poor on customization, Pantheon and XFCE. All of them failed to allow me to make the task bar big enough to actually work, Cinnamon still holds up.

ffmpeg is part of the official repo "Extra",meaning it is part of the repo's maintained by ArchLinux developers themselves

my gnu/linux-libre distro is on its way, who wants to try it?

>> No.73811646

"ffmpeg-full" is not "ffmpeg"
"ffmpeg-full" is an extra package those users who wish to manually control exactly what codecs/support is built in to ffmpeg, hence why it is in AUR and not the official package. It would be no different then a gentoo overlay.
You may want to look at mpv-build-git as well, it provides similar options to a statically linked ffmpeg for mpv to use as well as expanding/shrinking mpv's scope/bloat

Obviously what everyone wants is choice.

People don't like systemd because it removes choice, and the removal of choice was literally a strategy they exploited to make systemd popular.
>It's obviously been very popular with distro developers
This actually may not be true. As I just mentioned systemd was widely adopted because other Redshat developers made software have hard dependencies on it.
Regardless of whether you believe that was intentional or not, the fact remains: the ONLY reason non-systemd distros are able to exist today is because Gentoo devs forked udev. If they didn't do that then systemd would have completely taken over with no alternative choices.
That's extremely unusual (basically unheard of) for something like that to happen in such a short period of time on GNU/Linux.

Given their history and their apparent motives I simply don't trust them.
I think that given the choice, the developers of systemd will do everything they can to make sure you DON'T have a choice to replace it with anything in the future. And their continued "scope creep" of absorbing totally unrelated shit (like networking) into your init system seems like a pretty damn good attempt to do exactly that. And a pretty damn good way to make sure you don't have much a choice on how any of the stuff it absorbs behaves.
It's going to make GNU/Linux more monolithic and less flexible. That's a bad thing for everyone.

What should replace systemd is a the most simple init possible, since it's PID 1 and is the parent of everything else, and it should merely call other tools to do all the crap systemd is trying to do itself.

there are less than 10 FSF approved linux-libre distros and none of them have really worked for me so i decided to make one to fit my own needs, and might as well release it publically.
