System / Artix kernel default config
Last post by Sero -
How did the current config come to be? Is it arch-based or has it some totally different lineage?

Only looked into this the other day, I had to compile a new one (hardened, they have no kexec support by default) for an arch system and I diffed the configs, they didn't look like they were related at all, and most of the options that differ, I don't even know what they do.

I'm trying to eventually end up with a minimal config (pappy kernel seed style) that works for me.

System / Re: Is it a good ideea to mount TMPS via Fstab?
Last post by nous -
This uses your RAM as /tmp and it's way faster than using a HDD or even a SSD. If you don't use /tmp for user stuff (i.e. temporary downloads and such), the RAM usage is negligible and not causing adverse effects even in low-RAM systems.
System / Is it a good ideea to mount TMPS via Fstab?
Last post by Mirceamx -
I noticed this line was missing from fstab so I added it:

tmpfs   /tmp         tmpfs   nodev,nosuid          0  0

Is it a good idea. I want my apps to start faster but they somehow seem to start slower...I'm using Plasma btw.
Thank you.
General Discussion / Re: Trying to start linux on x86 tablet
Last post by nous -
I've recently had the unpleasant experience of owning an Intel-CPU tablet and, after a week of wasting my time, sold it back. I only tried my luck with Android, because I wanted a regular tablet experience and I'm telling you, unless the tablet has factory Android installed, you may never get a working solution. Worst problems on such tablets are freezing when going into sleep and no sound. Wifi and BT are other common ones. That being said, your best bet (for Android) is Linuxium's efforts and Android X86.
