    After an update, system boots, then video fails...

    It's been a whole month since I got my system working with my superwide display and the newest Nvidia drivers. All was well until today, when it got past the GRUB2 boot and began to run Plymouth. At that point, the screen freezes in the top third and fills the bottom third with either a...

    [SOLVED] Can't get GeForce RTX 2060 to work on 3840x1600 display

    The reason I got this new GPU was because the old one only had HDMI and DVI outputs and the monitor requires a DisplayPort connection to work at better than 30hz. The connection is now DP cable and it runs at full resolution at 75hz in Windoze... I have had Wayland installed for years, but...

    your favorite distribution of linux? and why?

    PCLinuxOS has been my Distro of choice since it began years ago... Why? Because it sucks less than the "Hello Kitty" dumbed down distros like *Buntu and it is more traditional Linux with KDE.

    Knoppix 7.6 released

    I was an early adopter of Knoppix and created several remasters for custom applications. It started out tiny and grew to fill a DVD... I don't use it as much any more since I latched onto Puppy Linux for self booting devices and system repairs. The last version I used was 7.1 or so. Now that...
