Re: The weather has been crazy

It's ONLY supposed to hit 108 today. Was 91*F at 4AM, "coldest" point of the day.

Re: KDE Neon 20190627 released

Yeah, I run this on my Chuwi. While it has 6 GB ram, the processor is probably slightly weaker than that in the E5410 overall.

Re: Laterst Nvidia driver updates coming to Ubuntu LTS no PPA needed

Somewhat related inso far as affecting Nvidia...I was reading that with the kernel 5.3 nvidia drivers will be broken. Some code that Nvidia relied upon has been removed, and is not considered to be an issue since obviously Nvidia drivers are binary, not open source.

Another one (32-bit release) bites the dust...

Fedora will no longer be building 32-bit kernels, considering dumping some 32-bit repos as well. More here.

After a closer look, one of the E6420s has a Nvidia gpu in it and Mageia 7 was trying to enable it first rather than the Intel gpu. Thru the control center I set the Intel gpu as the default and suddenly everything was working fine.
I actually remember having that issue myself.

Re: Still amazed how many distros dont support Broadcom wifi cards

As far as AC + BT 4.2 cards, I actually like my Atheros more than the Intel. Seems to work from a bit further away than the Intel (not a huge difference, but a difference). Atheros doesn't have a AC + BT 5.0 card yet though, so I have been buying Intel recently.
