Slackware64-Current (15.0): Ryzen 7 mini-ITX amdgpu vs. Nvidia Benchmarks

Posted 02-29-2020 at 05:01 PM by kingbeowulf

[posted on http://www.linuxgalaxy.org/]

I have finally had some time to compile the benchmarks for a series of GPUs on the new mini-ITX build. The purpose was to see if the amdgpu driver is ready to compete with Nvidia on a Linux powered game box. The GPUs choices are simply what I had available and fairly recent, except for the RX 5700 XT, which was a new purchase.

Earlier this month I conducted a discussion with a close companion and programmer who I will call M. M has been programming since the 1980s and has been using a host of different languages and operating systems since. Going from CP/M and Unix-based systems at work and home in the 1980s to Slackware in the 1990s and the 2000s, this discussion maps out his experiences and opinions on the world of free and proprietary software, parts of which will hopefully be of some interest. He is not, as far as...

ACPI configuration to handle AC adapter events in Slackware 14.2

Updated 11-13-2018 at 02:38 PM by gegechris99 (Scripts updated with commands cpufreq-info and cpufreq-set)

LQ thread Suggestion-use-performance-cpu-frequency-governor discusses which scaling governor would be most appropriate for Intel CPU using the intel_pstate scaling driver as those CPU only have the powersave and the performance governors.

Irrespective of the merit or not of changing the default scaling governor in Slackware for such CPU, at one point, the question of how to implement a change came up. In post #71, user abga made an implementation proposal that required changes to...

Projects: Slackhammer, ZACL, testing Perl on Slackware-current

Posted 07-26-2018 at 08:01 PM by ttk (Unpopular Positions: One Geek's Take)

I try to stay focused on a small number of projects at a time, so that they get finished sooner, but I seem doomed to spread myself thin.

Slackhammer

Sometimes it's because someone gives me a nudge and gets me all excited. Earlier this week, Idlemoor pointed me at https://release-monitoring.org which tracks packages' upstream sources, which is one of the core functions of my Slackhammer project http://ciar.org/ttk/codecloset/slackhammer/

Before saying anything else, I want to thank Jeremy and all the people in this site
for maintaining such a wonderful space on the net. I've been a member of this forum
since 2016, not posting too much, but I learned many things about Linux here from
very knowledgeable people and I want to thank them. As I am completely self-taught
about Linux and currently searching for a job in the field as a junior admin, I hope
to contribute more in the future in the forum...
