    kcompactd0 is still (5.13.5) eating systems years after the bug was first noted, and that is used by everyone.

    A driver really doesn't have much hope.

      WTF, the guy tried to upstream the patch, got rejected ("don't want to use ifdefs"), the guy asked for suggestions and the maintainer's response was "NO IDEA".

      No wonder Bernhard Seibold doesn't want to work on it anymore

        Only problem is, you went off-topic. You talked about AMD sensors, not about NTFS. Are you desperately talking about NTFS trying hard to get back on-topic?

        You're not talking BS. You are just in the wrong thread.

        No, it doesn't. My 7-year-old capture card still has no Linux support. Razer device support is unofficial. My Broadcom wireless sometimes works, sometimes doesn't (even on Windows it's broken!). ca0132 is imperfect (no JACK support and sometimes it is not there but this happens on Windows as well).

        No, it doesn't either. Ardour and Krita work well, but they don't replace Pro Tools or Photoshop.
        No massive-name professional video editors on Linux either (except for Resolve).

          Paragon have continued to adjust and resubmit their initially rejected NTFS driver. Time, after time, after time. I admire their tenacity, at least.

            How the hell these guys create a NTFS driver and sell if NTFS is proprietary and closed? Oo

              Actually, it seems more like they keep posting iterations on the driver for the purposes of feedback, but rather than being rejected per se, no one seems to have taken it upon themselves to pull it into an upstream tree... so Linus invited them to send a pull request directly to him, if they want.

                Because their NTFS driver doesn't have any MS code, it's a clean room implementation.

                They need to just do a pull request already.

                  Open source doesn’t mean no standard.

                    I hope this time it will be merged.

                      I thought I was already using this in xanmod 5.13.6-2? ntfs3 filesystem seems to work, maybe that just goes back to fuse until this is ready...
