Re: Logitech Marble Trackball Mouse not working in SolydX 9

lsmod should do the job. if everything is ok, next you can try to configure the mouse/trackpad options.

Re: Updating SolydK EE

it is considered safer and better if we did it from terminal, mainly for two reason: 1. the upgrade process is easy to monitor. upon trouble quick action is easy 2. you should use "apt-get dist-upgrade" command. IIRC only the old solydxk updater could do that. I don't even know whether if current up...

Re: systemd-analyze

the execution time isn't critical. systemd services are executed in parallel manner so the service chain is more important for determining boot time. if you read the result of "systemd-analyze critical-chain" command, you'll see that some services has +<some number> sign. these number means the addi...

Re: Community extra wallpapers ?

community wallpapers are shared inside the forum. there was a thread specifically made for that. though, perhaps no one collected all of them and compile them into one place. of course there's nothing wrong if you want to make a new one. we generally happily accept new ideas like this one. having a ...

Re: [Solved] Swap File issue

perhaps you should try zramswap :3 it works as ordinary swap with two differences. 1. it use ram instead of hdd. less performance cost compared to the old swap technology 2. it's compressed. the virtual space would be lot more compared to the actual size the disadvantages would be : 1. albeit small,...

Re: [Solved] Swap File issue

my preference for swappiness is zero. swap is generally slow so the system only use it for certain type of cache. in my experience having a large swap doesn't help much when kworker goes crazy. just as you said, even have 1 swappiness doesn't help much. the _theorically_ better way is actually havin...

Re: Swap File issue

you can put arjen's tweak into 99-sysctl.conf. this tweak is quite extreme (i.e: almost no swap usage. very few cache). it will have an slight impact on your system performance. if you want a mild tweak, you can start with the swappiness and dirty writeback centisecs values. try to use smaller value

Re: Swap File issue

it's a "ghost" issue with several keywords. intel chips - pstate driver- swap - run out memory. the observed symptoms is that kworker suddenly request more resource. swap started to be used. then system freeze or you get a restart. things to alleviate the issue : - disable pstate driver - tweak the ...

Re: Thunar can't handle the load

so far gvfs is the best way to handle mtp connection. AFAIK it works seamlessly with every file manager so that is a huge bonus. that being said, mtp is still a pain to working with. it is slow and buggy. if you have a wifi connection at home, I'd suggest using ftp to connect your phone. I'm using m...

Re: Jumping in EE wagon !

the most common mistake is a misconfigured repo setting, which will ended with mixed stable-testing system. the safest approach would be keeping the repo with default priority and let apt do the job. solydxk actually doesn't need higher priority since it's a standalone repo. fixing such a mixed syst...

Re: [solved ... and then not !!!] kworker is killing my machine again ...

you can replace the sysctl value of vm.dirty_writeback_centisecs with 10000. using sysctl and echo command gives the same result. it seems that the problem is more related to mem management. I think you can safely re-enable pstate driver
