Re: What is the trick to get HPLIB to work?

syntax highlighting for the Solidity programming language?

Ok kind of shocks me that I need to ask this given that this is Open Source, but seems there is no good support in the text editors for syntax highlighting for the Solidity programming language. Plan to try and mess around with smart contracts and DAPPs, and will be a bit of a pain if there is no wa...

Re: Installing AMD RX460 driver HOW DO YOU DO THIS?

Ok this is 18.3 which seems to cap at

Code: Select all

uname -r
4.13.0-45-generic
So how do I put in this "amdgpu.dc=1 kernel module parameter for activation."

What do I add to what file where?

It is my understanding that Mint 19 is in beta and not suggested for production systems at this time?
