    Linus and Firefox

    i think it's because of the marketshare firefox has, the epic extention flop recently and because it's now seen as kind of a bloated slow browser by many including me.

    Edge is... actually GOOD now!?

    that's what i'm saying. chrome in my experience is faster than firefox.

    lol chrome performs and has always performed very well for me. it's been a lot faster than firefox anyway.

    Edge is... actually GOOD now!?

    i'm on regular chromium and i'll probably stick with it. it's got chrome's performance but with all the google crap stripped out. it's such a light browser i love it.
  10. after some thinking and discussion on discord i've come to the decision of building an AM3 rig. 


    it'll probably have a Phenom X4 955 and 16GB of ram... i'll probably use a 290X (i have that spare) and maybe even crossfire 290X's if i can find another one.

      @RoseLuck462 thanks for the offer but i don't wanna deal with the hassle of shipping. 

    3. RoseLuck462


      Ah well just in case you change your mind, it’s the FX-4300. I don’t mind shipping international.

    4. firelighter487


      @RoseLuck462 that's about the same in terms of geekbench score as the X4 955 i'll be getting. so it wouldn't even be an upgrade. 


      thanls for the offer though :)

    F it was expected though. Manjaro was better in every single way.

    No valid DX 9/10/11 device on Manjaro

    you don't need catalyst unless you have a really old, like early 2000's gpu. everything else works out of the box with the drivers already in the kernel. we do need to figure out if it's using the correct one. assuming the GPU in question is the R7 370 in your signature. there are 2 drivers for the card. the amdgpu driver and the older radeon driver. we need to make sure it's using the amdgpu driver. run in terminal: lspci -nnv what this will do is list all the devices on the pci bus, along with what drivers etc they use. there are a lot of devices so scroll through it until you find the gpu. it's labled "VGA compatible controller" and then the model number after that. look for the line "Kernel driver in use". if it says radeon there it's not correct. then we can go to installing the correct driver.

    since when is ukuu a paid app? WTFFFFF

    1. AluminiumTech


      It's not. If you read the dev's blog post they talked about how they relied on donations and the money didn't come in (not enough people made donations to support it) and so they were forced to make new versions paid for.


      Existing versions are still free. You just won't get the shiny new UI.

  14. i kinda wanna see Valve make another Steam Machine now that gaming on linux is sooo much better than it was a few years ago... it might take off.

      considering there's the Skyreach 4 and the Zaber Sentry, i don't see why not o_o (although they really need to find a long term case manufacturing contractor for that since those cases are pretty custom. maybe they'll also make it in steel-walled plastic?)

  15. rip the thinkpad idea. i had a reality check and well... if i carried something that heavy around i would break my shoulders pretty much. so i'm not gonna do that anymore.
