Alphabet Inc's Google has suspended business with Huawei that requires the transfer of hardware and software products except those covered by open source licenses, a source close to the matter told Reuters on Sunday, in a blow to the Chinese technology company that the U.S. government has sought to blacklist around the world.

Getting the Huawei P30 Pro Mobile phone tomorrow. -I think it has more RAM than my computer...

My first computer as teenager:

VIC-20 had 2K RAM and Cassette tape as HD storage.

We used the BASIC computer language to do stuff like "mothers cooking recipes" and "telephone adress book".

I was a little bit more advanced and programmed the assembler with Peek and Pook commands using hexadecimal (from a binary chart) and did games like Frog Walking Over The Lumber Street etc.

Had many nasty freezes when trying Fedora 30 KDE-spin today, but according to guys on Reddit its something to do with the Nouveau driver.

And as soon I installed the Nvidia-driver everything went stabile.

Installed with netinstall to remove some KDE-bloat and it is one of my favourite distros out there.


How can I have missed SOLUS 4.0

Used it when it was only 3.999 but its very matured now. A very fantastic distro. So fast and sweet I cant belive it, really!!! Elegant and simple with its own software manager.

A really lovely OS that you recommend to your grandmother, friend, girlfriend or anybody!

Nvidia-driver install is a breeze with harware drivers detection support.

A real wonderful distro, it was probaly good that it went under new management in november last year?

Overclocking Nvidia-GPU in with Coolbits:

Add to "Devices" in xconfig:

Option "Coolbits" "value"

1 (bit 0) - Enables overclocking of older cores on the Clock Frequencies.
2 (bit 1) - When this bit is set, the driver will "attempt to initialize SLI when using GPUs with different amounts of video memory".
4 (bit 2) - Enables manual configuration of GPU fan speed on the Thermal Monitor.
8 (bit 3) - Enables overclocking on the PowerMizer.
16 (bit 4) - Enables overvoltage using nvidia-settings CLI options.

One of the best distros I have tried, no problems with Nvidia-drivers, easy GPU-overclocking (no need coolbits tweak in xconfig), great sound, no screen tearing, all Windows games works perfect without Wine or Proton, stabile, lots of open source apps available among others.

Hmm, trying the new version of Deepin OS 15.10. It is a very luxurious DE and better looking than Win(?). But there are some things, like always with Linux distros:

*Firefox ERS version 60 and can't install Ublock etc
*Many apps are outdated eg. summer 2018
*Nvidia-config app not present even they have a Nvidia-driver thing
*Not sure yet if QT Kwin WM is good (from 15.09 I belive)

But I fixed all the above:
Mozillas own flatpak repo and installed FF nighly, Nvidia-config from terminal, etc etc.

Got a nice surprise when doing Fedora 30 (netinstall), the beautifull Deepin desktop with buttery smooth window manager was available for install.

My computador now feels like a luxury Windows 10 enviroment but with latest Linux kernel and Fedora super duper repos :awesome:

(Deepin OS still have some really outdated stuff and their Firefox is useless).

But I can really say this, it is the best distro I tried ever so far: Fedora Deepin!!! ๐Ÿ‘

Appimage only Fedora based netinstall KDE with only base.
๐Ÿคญ ๐Ÿคญ ๐Ÿคญ

Interesting and managed to get all regular programs I use as APPimages plus some really nice programs only from Appimages (only dolphin and terminal from RPM).

Will make an experiment:

Fedora netinstall without any KDE-apps or junk and then only run Appimages. ๐Ÿคญ ๐Ÿคญ

I'll be back!

@oscarhall Have you explored one of the many Fedora spins? They should help you get whatever desktop environment you want. spins.fedoraproject.org/ You can also switch desktop environments by installing the corresponding RPM package group. (e.g. `dnf install @kde-desktop-environment`). List available package groups with `dnf group list` or explore the group definitions to learn whatโ€™s in each group:
