Compton and Intel Gfx | No tearing and 60 FPS

Posted Yesterday at 01:18 PM by ugjka
Updated Yesterday at 02:34 PM by ugjka (Updated!)

These are my configs for achieving 60FPS without tearing on Intel GM45 Onboard Graphics. I'm using compton for this.

These optimizations are for speed not quality. The purpose of this was to achieve lagless 60fps video playback on my old Dell Vostro 1015 laptop. I still get frame drop on youtube but it is better than it was previously.

My Xorg configuration

Code:
[ugjka@ArchPC aur]$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf

Verify a Downloaded File

Posted 02-10-2016 at 05:29 PM by tpalmerstudios (PalmerStudios)

Whenever I download something, I like to be very sure on the authenticity of the file. The only way to do this easily is by using a cryptographic hash. There are two main types. First is MD5, and the second is SHA1.

How to setup LUKS for RHEL6

Posted 02-08-2016 at 09:17 PM by JockVSJock
Updated 02-08-2016 at 09:20 PM by JockVSJock

Wanted to write up a quick HOWTO on how to encrypt an LVM disk on RHEL6. Linux Unified Key Setup or LUKS is one way to encrypt data at a block level, for a laptop or hard disk. If the laptop is lost or if the system is compromised, then as long as LUKS is used, then the data should be secure.

Again, there are a number of tutorials online that are either missing steps, aren't clear, or are not well explained. I wanted to writeup a step-by-step HOWTO that works with RHEL6, in a...

If, like me, you have a lot of data and a suitable conventional hard drive (HDD), then I recommend that you just buy the smallest, good-quality SSD you can find.

30GB or 60GB is more than enough to accommodate a Linux distro.

6 SSDs to consider:
