When running that command i get this as response back: nomko@msi-ge70-2pe ~ $ optirun pwd /home/nomko nomko@msi-ge70-2pe ~ $ I still have no clue wether i'm running Intel by default or Nvidia...

Re: Hybrid system installing both GPU drivers

Bumblebee allows switching between two GPUs. Prime does not. O, i have a Intel GPU and Nvidia GPU but like to run Intel as default due to lesser power consumption and not needing to use a powerfull GPU for daily tasks like internet and checking forums.... At this moment my laptop runs Nvidia by def...

Re: SSD tips

Everything applies generally but check whether it applies to YOUR system. If I remember correctly you already kicked /tmp and some parts of /var from the SSD into RAM so you can forget the tips that cope withe them. /swap should imho also go - either onto a conventional disk or, with enough RAM, co...

Re: Having seperate /var and /tmp

The old content will stay in your system until you remove them manually. I've heard that /tmp will be erased automatically on shutdown but I'm not sure about it. Basically you crate a RAM disc, meaning you create mappings in your system memory in which /tmp or /var or any other map will be loaded. ...

Re: Installing latest Pinta using a tarball

I don't recommend this method for installing on a "Debian Stable" system. I am running Debian "Testing". It might work for Stable but you may make your system unusable and have to reinstall if it causes issues. Here is what I used to install 1.6 on my testing system: https://launchpad.net/~pinta-ma...

Re: Having seperate /var and /tmp

that's a good idea.... moving everything to RAM. I have 16 GiB RAM so no problem....

I noticed that you haven't set any size for /tmp and /var?

Re: Having seperate /var and /tmp

I just noticed you have /var in that partition tool. Maybe i missed it....

The reason i want /tmp and /var from the SSD drive is avoiding a lot of read/write activities on my SSD drive in both maps.

I'll check it again tonight!

I have 2 discs in my laptop: 1x 128 GB SSD (sdb) 1x 1 TB HDD (sda) Now i want to partition my discs as following: SSD drive ...

Hi, I'm using a Logitech M125 optical USB mouse. But moving the mouse result in a slow responding mouse pointer. It feels and looks like dragging a dead horse around. Now i've read on some other forum that the best way to solve this is installing the latest kernel, or at least update to the latest o...

Re: Active users

People don't register to "take a look" - they can do that without registering. People register when they encounter a problem. As soon as the problem is solved they never log in again until the next problem if there ever is one. I don't agree totally with this statement. As you look at the member li...

Active users

I just wonder, how many active users are still using Solyd X/K? If i look at the members list, there are about 2159 users registered. Guessing that a big part just registered out of curiosity, took a look at the forum, logged out and never logged back in again. How many users do have Solyd X/K insta...
