What would it take to create an unofficial 32-bit version of Loki? A lot of work without using our existing build infrastructure. What would be the steps required to build it from the source? Again, a lot of work and fiddling. I don't believe there are succinct instructions anywhere. What would be missing or non-functional? Nothing, so long as ...

It is a known issue, it's reported and confirmed here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/appcenter/+bug/1587975 I'm still waiting for an fix or update myself.

The only main issue : your video graphic card. If you want to change your graphic card, do not forget to uninstall your driver.

Please define "supports" :) I'm writing this on my new Dell Precision 5510 featuring an Intel i7-6820hq (Skylake chipset), running elementaryOS 0.3.2 (Freya). My only kernel related issue has been the lack of out-of-the-box support for the Intel Wireless chipset responsible for wifi and bluetooth, but that was solved by installing a back-ported driver after ...

This is a bug with DBus - see the answer I posted here. Essentially DBus is preventing everything from starting up, so until that's fixed you need to rename the file causing issues: sudo mv /etc/xdg/autostart/at-spi-dbus-bus.desktop /etc/xdg/autostart/at-spi-dbus-bus.disabled

This is kind of subjective but actually there is no problem at all running elementary OS 0.4 loki on 2 core AMD 64 bit if you have enough RAM (4-8 GB)

Install TLP sudo apt install tlp Then edit the config file - set the governor to powersave sudo scratch-text-editor /etc/default/tlp Ensure the following lines are not commented and are as show below CPU_SCALING_GOVERNOR_ON_AC=powersave CPU_SCALING_GOVERNOR_ON_BAT=powersave or Try setting the CPU governor to performance. This will "lock" the CPU to ...

Enabling this wouldn't harm your machine. Users of CPUs belonging to the Intel Haswell and Broadwell processor families in particular must install these microcode updates to ensure system stability. But all Intel users should install the updates as a matter of course.

No, not usually. I have switched hard disks between different machines more than once, and that shouldn’t be a problem. The only thing to make sure beforehand might be to see whether your new hardware needs drivers that are definitely not included in the distribution you are going to use.

It is recommended that at 4GB of RAM and above, users use the 64-bit version, assuming they have a 64-bit capable CPU. You may, however, see a slight performance improvement by using the 32-bit version with PAE (included by default), as it uses slightly less memory.

Sorry to tell you but 3217u is a dual core processor. You can see its specifications at: Intel i3 3217u However you can add some variables to your .conkyrc to see information about your cores. For example, you can add: ${cpu cpuX} With x=0 to see total CPU usage in percent, and X>=1 to see individual cores. For more information about conky variables, you ...

What would it take to create an unofficial 32-bit version of Loki? What would be the steps required to build it from the source? elementary OS has substantial information on getting started on their official website. Try working around with the information given at Desktop Development. What would be missing or non-functional? If you are talking about the ...

Is this your CPU? If that's the case you only have 2 cores not 4. Otherwise update your question with your CPU model. I doubt your laptop has it, but some computers allow to unblock the CPU to have more cores or to enable hyperthreading. Check inside the bios/firmware to see if there's such option.

You could install Ukuu which makes it easy to install kernels, including 4.13, and roll back if the kernel causes issues. Check the link below on how to use it. http://www.omgubuntu.co.uk/2017/02/ukuu-easy-way-to-install-mainline-kernel-ubuntu

It's not normal for it to be so slow. There might be a corrupt package. Try reinstalling gala. Open synaptic package manager by typing it in the applications menu search bar. Let it load. Once done, press CTRL + F and search for libmutter. It will display a list of packages. If you right click on any of them it will display the option for marking package ...

For the messages you indicate, I can see two problems. The first of them is about the wireless card (Atheros ath10k). The boot process can't find the firmware file named firmware-5.bin. There are some forks to the official driver. So, using them, you can copy the necessary files to yor system. You can find more information in the following Stackexchange Q&...

I think that it may be because of auto update performed by AppCenter. I noticed that too on my machine. Here's how to disable these updates: 1. Kill AppCenter `killall appcenter` 2.Show all the hidden startup applications sudo sed -i 's/NoDisplay=true/NoDisplay=false/g' /etc/xdg/autostart/*.desktop 3.launch Gnome Session Properties application gnome-...

Thanks for the info. I tried a few linux distribution with different desktops. Here are the results. In Linux mint with xfce the windows move very slow and keep moving even if I let the mouse button go. Wit the option of hiding windows content while moving them, it works fine. I also tried debian. XFce is the same. Openbox is also not working. Windows ...

sudo apt-get install linux-tools-common and then you can either force: cpupower frequency-set -f clock_freq set max: cpupower frequency-set -u clock_freq or set min: cpupower frequency-set -d clock_freq cpu clock frequency. More in-depth information about cpupower can be found here: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/CPU_frequency_scaling You may ...

I run a NUC6i3SYK (Skylake Core i3-6100U) elementary OS Freya (Ubuntu 14.04.) After trying several other Kernels I now successfully run the 4.2.8 Kernel. Below kernel 4.x (3.19 is now the stock Freya/ Ubuntu 14.04 Kernel I think) I don't have Wifi and I see quite the CPU load even in idle. On kernels 4.3.x - 4.5 I do have Wifi but terrible ripping ...

First off, both of those processors are a 2010 vintage, and HEVC is a relatively new format, however it certainly doesn't require a dual core. Neither are performing better, the graphics on the i3 is a 5 year old integrated chip, whereas the Pentium didn't have integrated, so the dedicated card from around the same time is out performing it, as it should ...

Maybe this link will help you. The terminal is capable of showing you running processes via the top command. All you need to do is open a terminal, whether on your desktop or, if things have frozen by pressing CTRL+ALT+F1 - F12, logging in and entering the top command.
