• We had to restore from a backup today after a failed software update. Backup was from 0000 EDT and restored it at 0800 EDT so we lost about 8hrs. Today is 07/20/2024. More info here.

No farm, Graphics card prices are dropping as supply comes back to normal. EIP1559 will also slow down the grabbing of cards. Luckily for you i've only purchased used 8GB cards for my mining purposes ;) I haven't gone near an RTX card for mining.
Good to know you aren't hosting a farm but doing it for yourself. I jumped ship from team Green to team Red with my last graphics card. I'm afraid though that the prices will never go back to normal since the mid-range cards are still near $700-800, when I bought mine at launch it was over $1000.

Are you using X11 or Wayland with KDE Plasma? I experimented on a vm with different DE's this last weekend and I couldn't get used to having a full DE again. I guess Sway and i3wm have got me hooked because my work flow feels easier because I don't have to manage my own windows, as well as easily being able to configure key-binds for my most used applications.

I've managed to find to the fix for the login issue with Wayland + nvidia in Manjaro, not sure if it's the same fix on other distros with KDE (Didnt have to do this in Fedora on gnome or KDE).

To fix the issue, you have to add the nvidia-drm.modeset=1 kernel paramter. After a reboot, I can login with no issues.

I've tested it a bit, and it is similar to the issues I was experiencing in Fedora.

I am not sure if its nvidia ready yet... even though technically it should be. X11 seems more stable with less bugs, at least on my system that is, cant speak for others.

Xfce running on a RHEL VM. It's just the stock look, inasmuch as you can have a 'stock look' for Xfce on RHEL. It's not too difficult to get installed, but it's not supported and not in the default RHEL repos. EPEL will get you started.

Why? I'm thinking about using RHEL as a workstation OS on a box and I really, really dislike GNOME.
 
I am a die-hard Linux User, but I appreciate the UI / UX style of Mac OS X, and thus the latest round of customizations of my KDE Desktop on my school laptop, spurned by wanting to create a theme that better suited the silver-black colors of it.

Just a tip to some of the above Members (not you, @LiLiu )

Please do remember the Thread Title is

There is a lot of Off Topic content here, and while the content of the posts contain some valuable information, that info would better serve our community in structured Threads elsewhere, not here.

TIA folks, and enjoy your Linux.

I distro hopped again, this time to endeavourOS, wanted to give it a try before diving into Arch. Here's the latest desktop.

its a nice Distro ,backward compatible with Arch repo's
has its own knowledge base on their web site. One feature which I think is really great for the 3rd world is that you can install "offline" . With wget etc you can patiently construct a valid iso; so thats where Endeavour comes in. Then when the interent is good you can choose to update. Whats tricky in the 3rd world is when you need a chunky download with good bandwidth which Vanilla Arch requires, during the install process.

Unless your pedantic, some might say , actually your pretty much on Arch with EndevourOS.

I installed endeavourOS while sub Sahara , never had chance to check. I'm guessing if you check /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist there will be one entry which fetches from specific endeavourOS repo
 
So, now that I actually have a Linux desktop. I shall show more than just my cli.

Here is the desktop.

I'm still fighting with the color scheme in my IDE though. The theme + color scheme are a bit of a mismatch, but I'm still working on it. I like dark themes with decently high contrast, but I absolutely hate the extreme contrast of the HIGH CONSTRAST theme / color scheme.

I actually used to really enjoy the old Borland Turbo C++ theme (dark blue) from back in the day even though it was in what look like a DOS IDE hah.

Anyhow, here is my CLion IDE. I don't care much for the dull gray theme. As noted, the color scheme isn't bad, but the dull gray and purple clash a bit.

I agree that CLion looks bad; otherwise, I think it looks awesome! If it was my desktop, I'd want larger margins around those icons in the tray, though. But it's yours, not mine :)
