(Solved, installed LM 19) Where can I find a list of CPUs supported by LM 18.3?

Post by Massively ignorant » Fri Mar 09, 2018 3:17 pm

Greetings All, and thanks to anyone who reads this post and special thanks to anyone who chooses to reply.

My query is summed up in the Subject line; Where can I find a list of CPUs supported by LM 18.3?

I'm starting to feel like I'm making an awful nuisance of myself in re my post about Key board and mouse lag / response delay,
Link: viewtopic.php?f=47&t=264913&p=1440478&h ... t#p1440478

One of the respondents in that thread remarked that my CPU isn't supported by Linux Mint 18.3. I am starting to think that buying a processor that is supported might be the course of least resistance, hence the desire for a list of supported processors.

for you further information I've reprinted part of the results of running the inxi -Fxz command on this machine: (Linux Mint 18.3, Xfce.)

<username>@<username>-Z370XP-SLI ~ ubuntu-drivers devices
System: Host: <username>-Z370XP-SLI Kernel: 4.10.0-38-generic x86_64 (64 bit gcc: 5.4.0)
[I have upgraded the Kernel to: 4.13.0-36-generic x86_64 (64 bit gcc: 5.4.0) since this report was generated.]
Desktop: Xfce 4.12.3 (Gtk 2.24.28) Distro: Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia
Machine: System: Gigabyte product: Z370XP SLI v: Default string
Mobo: Gigabyte model: Z370XP SLI-CF v: x.x
Bios: American Megatrends v: F3 date: 09/06/2017
CPU: Hexa core Intel Core i5-8600K (-MCP-) cache: 9216 KB
flags: (lm nx sse sse2 sse3 sse4_1 sse4_2 ssse3 vmx) bmips: 43200
clock speeds: max: 4300 MHz 1: 3971 MHz 2: 4125 MHz 3: 4124 MHz
4: 4197 MHz 5: 4299 MHz 6: 4198 MHz
Graphics: Card: Intel Device 3e92 bus-ID: 00:02.0
Display Server: X.Org 1.18.4 drivers: fbdev,intel (unloaded: vesa)
Resolution: 1920x1080@77.00hz
GLX Renderer: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 4.0, 256 bits)
GLX Version: 3.0 Mesa 17.0.7 Direct Rendering: Yes

In addition here are the results of running the command; ubuntu-drivers devices:

== cpu-microcode.py ==
driver : intel-microcode - distro free

Thanks again and respectfully, Massively ignorant

the vast majority of cpu's are supported to Intel is well supported to I doubt that's the problem.
but here is a wiki that may be of Help: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Suppo ... hitectures

and this page give the test results on your CPU. https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page= ... 8400&num=1
It's my opinion that the lag must lie elsewhere.

...now you've probably killed him ;-)

On a more serious note...
viewtopic.php?p=1440516#p1440516

And...
viewtopic.php?p=1440638#p1440638

Instructions are CLEAR & simple. I really don't know how to make them more clear than that. But I'll repeat them here as well...
viewtopic.php?p=1428394#p1428394

Open a terminal, copy/paste and enter:
gksudo xed /etc/default/grub
Change the following line:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
to
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="i915.alpha_support=1 quiet splash"
and save. In the terminal, copy/paste and enter:
sudo update-grub
After it finishes, copy/paste and enter again:
sudo apt-get purge xserver-xorg-video-intel
After it finishes, copy/paste and enter again:
sudo apt-get install linux-firmware
Reboot. You should also be on kernel 4.13.0-16. And to avoid misunderstanding, i will also repeat again...
Will the above instructions automagically solve all of the current weirdo keyboard / mouse behavior?
Maybe yes maybe not. But it will resolve some core basic issues & it will provide some pre-eliminary support for your system though...
4-5 different threads, a post of mine moved elsewhere, a private message (and also a thread about genre identities in between).
What for? It's 4 commands...run them, report back if still not fixed, and different ideas / suggestions will probably arise...

thx-1138

Thank you for all the kind work you have done on my behalf.

How humiliating, I'm replying using my Windows 10 machine as the LM 18.3 64 bit machine will not allow me to log in at the moment.

I tried following your instructions, when I got to; sudo apt-get update linux-firmware, I got the error message; the update command doesn't take any arguments. Up to that point everything went well as far as I can tell.

Since I had all my personal files copied to a thumb drive, I thought I'd just shut down and re-boot. after I rebooted and got to the login screen, the password box will not respond to the keyboard and I can't type my password. I'll wait for your reply, but I think I'm in for a reinstall of LM 18.3. I.e. I can't even get to the command line.

Thank you, Respectfully, Massively ignorant

Indeed, my fault due to typing fast - it should be sudo apt-get install linux-firmware install, the above will simply do nothing (and thereby not update linux-firmware). I've corrected it above.

It might be a good idea starting with a clean state first, and then following the above. Quite a few people have CoffeeLake processors & they've got them running pretty ok.

thx-1138

Again thank you very much for your advice and assistance. More than that, thank you for the patience and forbearance you have shown.

I will reload the LM 18.3 partition and as you say, "Start with a clean slate." I'll report back later on progress.

This following bit of philosophising doesn't really belong on this board, but I think I'll share it anyway; I accept the idea of the "Great Wheel of Life" This holds that everything is interconnected and that every event / action effects every other one, both for good and for not so good. In my daily life, I look for opportunities to help others, hopefully for their good. So while it is highly unlikely that I will ever be able to assist others on this board, I like to think that by helping others, that may be a way to make some recompense for the help I receive here.

Thank you, and respectfully Massively ignorant

thx-1138,

Thank you again,

This 64 bit machine running LM 18.3 w/ Xfce works better after applying the changes that you suggested, enough so that I've moved it to my main work station.

There is still some delay between when I press a key and when the corresponding character appears on the screen, it is still some what difficult to highlight without getting more text then you wanted and it's hard to land the cursor on an incorrect character, like wise using back space when correcting spelling errors often results in back-spacing over characters you intended to leave. So not ready for the big time yet.

tl/dr [Spelling was my worst subject in school, somewhere between a third and a quarter of the proceeding words were mis-spelled. Now a days I'm also having trouble reading the text due to failing eyesight. Usually when I have a longer post, I compose in Libre Office then copy and paste into this text box.]

I also think I owe you an apology for being unnecessarily obtuse and stubborn.

One more off topic matter and I will finish; I have an older machine at my computer repair shop. I suspect that it has a bad motherboard. It just quit in the middle of something, attempts to reboot don't even result in so much as the BIOS starting. So I am going to try to find a list of supported CPU's and their associated motherboards. If an internet search doesn't prove fruitful, I will be back with a question similar to the current topic.

Reason: Adding [code] tags. They retain some formatting that makes your output easier to read.

Massively Ignorant, you absolutely don't owe me an apology of any sorts...

Ok, now we've got your CoffeeLake support sorted out. For some reason, fbdev gets loaded, this would explain the graphics slowness.
Try the following, then reboot:
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-legacy-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-video-all-hwe-16.04

thx-1138 Thank you once again.

Alas and alack, sigh, grumble and groan, now things seem worse! Well, maybe no worse then at the beginning of this endeavor.

So here is the most recent copy of inxi -Fxz I ran after trying to run: sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-legacy-hwe-16.04 xserver-xorg-video-all-hwe-16.04. I tried to run the command twice and got the same result. i.e. No improvements. I have included the messages that were on the terminal after both attempts. [What gave me the idea of saving the first one, I do not know.]

This is a very long document, I would understand if you might not have the time or inclination to address the matter further.

If you have persevered to this point, well there is no adequate way to thank you enough.

If you have further thoughts you would share or if you feel as if you have put too much of your time into this quest, I would understand either way. I’m gotten quite tired of the journey myself.
Oh yes, I did find the list of supported hardware over at the main site, so that’s a useful result!

Thanks and respectfully, Massively ignorant.

Re: Where can I find a list of CPUs supported by LM 18.3?

Post by thx-1138 » Tue Mar 20, 2018 5:11 am

...with a couple of bumps but it seems that everything went ok:
Display Server: X.Org 1.19.5 drivers: fbdev (unloaded: vesa)
Resolution: 1920x1080@77.00hz
GLX Renderer: llvmpipe (LLVM 5.0, 256 bits)
I'm afraid i'm out of ideas though - because this system is as much updated as possible by now: Coffeelake support enabled, latest linux-firmware & latest Xorg as well.
llvmpipe / fbdev is what should not get loaded there, it should instead recognize and use your Intel graphics card abilities... :(
I mean, every suggestion that i could personally make from here on, would be pure speculation - and if it would work, that would be more or less out of luck...
Maybe it would worth trying out the Xubuntu / Ubuntu Mate 17.10 variants & see if they play better overall (you'd still need the i915.alpha_support=1 on those as well). 18.04 comes out in around a month from now as well...

maybe this is the problem , from https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page= ... 8400&num=1
As mentioned in the Core i7 8700K, the only Linux issue we have experienced so far with Coffee Lake is over the i915 DRM driver appearing to have issues with the UHD Graphics 630. Stay tuned for benchmarks likely later today or tomorrow about the Coffee Lake graphics on Linux. (Update: With Linux 4.13~4.14, you need to set i915.alpha_support=1 to enable this "alpha" quality driver support for Coffee Lake.)

thx-1138, thank you for your reply.

Aw well, all one can do in such situations is to try something, but when one has gotten to the point of throwing darts in the dark, then perhaps it’s time to look towards other alternatives. Waiting on 18.04 doesn’t seem to be too much of a burden.

Again, I can’t really give an adequate thank you for all your efforts.

mank in, thank you for your reply.

No worries about your English, I don’t have any other language in which I can communicate, other than English and I don’t necessarily communicate all that well in English.

I’ve read the phoronix article already, I didn’t find it all that helpful, none the less, thank you for your efforts.

Thank you both and respectfully, Massively ignorant
