Re: Niet uit pauzestand te halen.

Start Stuurprogrammabeheer. Is er een gesloten niet-vrij stuurprogramma beschikbaar van Nvidia? Zo ja, installeer het en herstart je computer.

Re: Firejail

Note that you need the latest stable Long Term Support Firejail from upstream, because the one in the repo's is only partly usable:

Welcome! Linux is very easy nowadays (although a certain learning curve is inevitable). Have fun! :)

Re: [SOLVED] Random freezes

Just had a freeze with max C-state at 3, right in the middle of an online chess game.... :shock:

Reduced C-state to 1. That should teach me not to try to outsmart my betters, i.e. the kernel devs. :P

[SOLVED] Re: Random freezes

I haven't measured it, but the battery drain looks somewhat higher after the change to 3. Not by much. I can live with that. No freezes at all, since I first applied the reduced max C-state. Whereas freezes where very frequent at first. So for the time being, I'll mark this topic as solved. How-to f...

Re: Well I give up

It can be demonstrated with a simple thought experiment. Try this experiment: stop breathing, if that oxygen out there doesn't really exist your mind will be just fine without it. Or kick a brick wall with your bare foot. Excellent way to instantly grasp the difference between reality and delusion....

Re: Random freezes

Changing max C-state to 3. Not because any freeze has happened yet with 4 (it hasn't), but to be on the safe side. The goal is the optimal balance between power saving and stability, with a strong emphasis on stability. See this overview: https://www.dell.com/support/article/nl/nl/nlbsdt1/qna41893/w...

Re: Problem mit Brother Drucker

Ich bevorzüge Laserdruckers. Weil die es immer tun, nicht eintröcknen und viel billiger pro Seite sind als Tintendruckers. Verlässliche Qualität. Einen Farben-laserdrucker kann ich nicht empfehlen. Die Farben sind stumpf. Aber Bilder kann man ja auch abdrucken lassen bei der dm oder so, was auch noc...

Re: Random freezes

Test limit reduced to 4. Reason: this should leave the memory cache alone, and the crash error log suggested something wrong with memory allocation as well.

Re: Random freezes

New test limit: 5. Reason: the older CPU in my laptop appears to support up till 6, so only a reduction below 6 has any effect.

Re: Random freezes

Apparently, the maximum depth of the C-state is 9:

I'll start by limiting it to 8, and will decrease it step by step if necessary. I'll report the results in this thread.

It still hasn't been resolved, and pops up from time to time...give it a try to see if it reduces such.
Thanks! I'll try it out. Although according to some sources, it appears to have a severe negative effect on power consumption....
