AMD Raid drivers don't compile for Ubuntu 18.04 (kernel 4.15)

1 hour 25 min ago

Just a heads up for anyone using the AMD Raid drivers for Ryzen boards. It looks like the timer library was reworked in the kernel, and these drivers make calla to init_timer, which is no longer defined as of kernel 4.15 (what Ubuntu 18.04 uses). This means, the drivers will no longer compile. Stick to pre-4.15 if you're using these drivers.

How free/open-source is the GCW Zero actually? And is there any newer projects available?

4 hours 57 min ago

Would it be more free than say, Android gaming? Android is also free/open-source, but has proprietary stuff included. Is the same true with the GCW Zero?

Why so many KDE related people are attacking and shit**ting on the GNOME project?

Sat, 2018-04-21 22:18

I mean I practically never see the opposite. I think it's a great thing that they are so many DE options on Linux. I personally don't like the design of KDE at all but that's just me. I'm sure they are plenty of users that like it and enjoy it and that's a good thing imo.

I read on a site this morning, I think it was and reported the title of this post.

Time to switch to pkexec.

I did this morning and all I had to do was create the policy for the programs requiring root privilege; eg, Synaptic

Why does Ubuntu boot faster than Debian?

Sat, 2018-04-21 20:59

Why does Ubuntu boot faster than Debian? It's based on Debian so it makes sense that Debian would boot faster.

I tried Ubuntu 17 and Latest Debian netinst and then installing the 'gnome' package.

even just the terminal boots maybe 1 sec faster than Ubuntu with Unity.

Has anyone noticed better audio quality on recent kernel updates?

Sat, 2018-04-21 18:24

I've just updated my arch to kernel to 4.16.3-1 and I've noticed that the UCA202 DAC gives much better sound quality than before. Before it sounded flat but now the audio has a much wider range to it.

Which Thinkpad should I buy?

Sat, 2018-04-21 17:35

I have been looking for a fairly cheap laptop with pretty solid specs for a while now. From the research I've done, it seems like an older Thinkpad is the way to go. I plan to run Solus on it which I have been using on my desktop for a while and really enjoying. My budget is $200-$300 for this laptop.

What I would like:

·Expanable ram up to at least 8 gb and much more preferably 16 gb.

·Would prefer a battery that I can change but that is not a requirement.

·Easily switchable sata drive

·Fairly small screen, at most 14in, preferably smaller

·Good battery life, would prefer at least 8 hours

·Good keyboard and trackpad (seems like most Thinkpads have this one covered)

·Resolution isn't a huge sticking point but at least 720p, preferably 1080p

·TN is fine but I'd prefer an IPS panel

·I'm fine with integrated graphics

·Under an inch in height would be nice

·Not super heavy

·Good selection of io: 3+ usb ports, graphics out (not important which standard), ethernet, SD/microSD would be nice, a 3.5mm headphone jack, maybe some other ports I can't think of right now

·Wifi and Bluetooth

Thank you all for any advice you can give!
