    Just trying to spark conversation. I'm sure I can't be the only linux user to spill coffee on a laptop.

    It's all good now. I had to take the disc drive out and the keyboard. That was it, cleaned it up, let it dry , and put it back together. Working ok.

    Sorry these benchmarks haven't come yet guys. The last 5% of getting my scripts all working right is driving me nuts.

    Anyway, It's more or less already working. I'm gonna use this Pulse audio...

    I agree, Even if they don't know exactly what it means, a lot of gamers have at least heard of opengl. changing the name would be bad. It'll basically reset recognition back to zero.

    ah, nvm,

    I figured it out. I didn't paste the whole script up there. Thought that was where the problem was, but turns out it was a syntax error on a different line. My copy and pasting skills...

    That sounds about right. My laptop has a realtek rtl8192ce wifi chipset. The driver is open source, but it relies on proprietary firmware that has a bug in the power management capability. Because of...

    It wouldn't work for you.

    But it's only one command, read the man page for objcopy. First you need a kernel set up with efi boot stub support, then you need an initrd with firmware and modules...

    Exactly. The only tool that script invokes is objcopy.

    After reading this post last night, I made a one line script that does the same thing without systemd.
  11. Cool. I'm looking at objcopy now.

    Cool. I'm looking at objcopy now.

    You gotta give Intel credit, they are masters at designing cache cells.

    RAM speed is a compromise between latency and bandwidth.

    Think about bandwidth from the perspective of time slices, or...

    I'd say you're pretty close to being right on the spot.

    10 years ago I was able to sell 500$ CPU upgrades. But, now l rarely sell a CPU all by itself, and they are usually like 50$. The only time...

    I couldn't disagree more. The majority of what's in RAM has to be read off storage first. The more RAM an application uses the slower and longer things take. Everybody who says that unused RAM is...

    EDIT: I don't know the math, but the logic is, half of a square is not square, it's rectangle, but half of that rectangle -is- square.

    14nm is actually a lot less then half of 28nm. Not counting the thickness of the process, just the 2d top down view, it's close to 1/4 of the size.

    I don't agree with you on eliminating sata ports. PCIe storage has been very buggy, where sata has been rock solid.

    I can definitely see your point on socketed designs though, and someday I may...

    There isn't anything more that can be asked from you, so thank you.

    The thing is, most of us here on Phoronix do in fact try to keep our kernels and userspaces current. That's just not possible...

    Do you actually want me to try and list all of the USB devices, Wifi controllers, Display adapters, etc that have terrible proprietary driver support? Really?

    Firmware runs on the CPU, microcode runs on a processor embedded in the device. So then in order to call a firmware...
