Re: Its about the "mouse suddenly stops working" syndrome

I'm having a similar problem which seems to be becoming more frequent, which makes me suspect some hardware problem. I upgraded from Mint 17,something to 18.1 when even a reboot didn't fix the problem. Now it's occurring again but so far reinserting the usb plugs sometimes fixes but sometimes not. I...

Re: memory problem with mdm

It's still good, only up to 2 MB. Flagging as SOLVED. Thanks again everyone, especially Flemur.

edit: If there is a way for me to change the title myself, I can't find it.

Re: memory problem with mdm

The reinstall may have fixed the problem. I'll know by tomorrow. I'm a little embarrassed though. I checked that it was up to date but didn't think of reinstalling. I so appreciate the help.

Re: memory problem with mdm

I got the information from the task manager. Eventually MDM becomes the highest memory user. I confirmed that the OS had killed the job from the system log file. I'll post the requested information when I get home after work.

memory problem with mdm [SOLVED]

since a few days ago mdm has been slowly taking all available memory to the point that within a day or two the OS automatically kills it. I have 32 GB so that's not the issue. I'd love some suggestions. Google was no help at all. Mint 17,3 cinnamon.

Re: Can't get driver to work with both GPU/Graphics cards

Thanks, that is very good information. I may have to try a different PSU. the 750ti was designed for low power usage and maxes at less than 75 watts. It only gets power from the slot. Now this may seem a little crazy but I reinstalled Linux, the graphic drivers, and the client software. Now I'm seei...

Re: Can't get driver to work with both GPU/Graphics cards

I'm using both cards to calculate protein folding https://folding.stanford.edu/ It's kind of a competitive thing where points are awarded based on the speed and quantity of calculations. The 960 card consistently does a lot less work than the 750ti. Both cards are factory overclocked but are running...

Re: Can't get driver to work with both GPU/Graphics cards

Ok thanks. You seem to know what you are talking about. I still have the issue then that the performance of the 960 card is much worse than the 750 and I expected it to be noticeably better.

Re: Can't get driver to work with both GPU/Graphics cards

Thank you so much for your reply. Yes, that's what I thought but if you look at the attached screen shot of what I see in the driver manager you can see that one of the cards is using the nouveau driver and doesn't offer any useful alternatives. The partial listing below of /var/log/Xorg.0.log makes...

Can't get driver to work with both GPU/Graphics cards (resolved)

I can usually solve my problems but with this I'm stuck. I'm participating in folding at home. I've added a second Graphic card. Existing card: GTX 750TI, New : GTX 960. I'm using driver nvidia-364 for the 750. The same driver should work with the 960 but I cannot get it to show in the available cho...
