@sadoon_albader:matrix.orgsadoon_albaderno problem!08:37:49
@sadoon_albader:matrix.orgsadoon_albaderIf you're looking for a board I highly recommend the Asrock X99 WS if you only want 1 cpu, it has socketed bios and I successfully ran me_cleaner on it with no problem, and it has a backup bios just in case08:38:56
@sadoon_albader:matrix.orgsadoon_albaderSupports xeons and rdimms08:39:08
@hansbauer:matrix.orghansbauerthat's pretty nice. how much do they cost normally?08:41:03
@sadoon_albader:matrix.orgsadoon_albaderI bought it new back in 2016 so I got it for 300$ I believe08:41:37
@sadoon_albader:matrix.orgsadoon_albaderI can't find any on ebay with good prices08:42:05
@sadoon_albader:matrix.orgsadoon_albaderBut the extreme4 and extreme6 are cheaper08:42:15
@sadoon_albader:matrix.orgsadoon_albaderI believe they also have dual socketed bios08:42:26
@hansbauer:matrix.orghansbaueri will keep that model in mind. im not sure of i would buy intel again, but if they are so cheap i might consider.08:44:27
@hansbauer:matrix.orghansbaueri say that, because i keep finding strange things about my ivy bridge. it always had some horrible latency i could never solve.08:45:45
@sadoon_albader:matrix.orgsadoon_albaderweird08:46:03
@sadoon_albader:matrix.orgsadoon_albaderNever had an issue with ivy bridge08:46:11
@sadoon_albader:matrix.orgsadoon_albaderBut these haswell xeons are solid, been using them for 5 years now08:46:41
@sadoon_albader:matrix.orgsadoon_albaderUsed to have a 1650v3 which is an overclockable 6 core08:46:53
@hansbauer:matrix.orghansbauerit turns out, the combination of setting the kernel clock to tsc + turning off smt (turning off hyperthread) solved the issue. it might be specific to my notebook, i don't really know. not only latency was affected, but throughput and temperatures too.08:49:28
@eimiar:matrix.orgeimiaranybody knows how to run weston as a non-root user on systemd?08:49:50
@eimiar:matrix.orgeimiar * anybody knows how to run weston as a non-root user with systemd?08:50:09
@eimiar:matrix.orgeimiarthe way i tried gives me this log: https://pastebin.com/d2A7Dmuw (lines 116-123)08:51:19
@eimiar:matrix.orgeimiarand this is the service i try to run: https://pastebin.com/bhynBHz708:51:41
@eimiar:matrix.orgeimiarpermissions are okay, i already checked08:52:12
@sadoon_albader:matrix.orgsadoon_albaderhansbauer that's a weird issue, but I've known that laptops always have firmware issues since forever.08:52:33

hansbauer that's a weird issue, but I've known that laptops always have firmware issues since forever.
yep, some are forever suffering some wierd issues. that might be just another case of the bios being broken somewhere.

@sadoon_albader:matrix.orgsadoon_albaderI had a 1st gen ryzen laptop, Envy x360 15 inch with R5 2500U, that thing was notorious for crashes in linux08:58:45
@sadoon_albader:matrix.orgsadoon_albaderIts younger sibling the 13" had the same cpu but without any issues08:59:11
@hansbauer:matrix.orghansbauerlol i think the worst case i had was my macbook a1181. the battery system is some strange proprietary apple thing and not really compatible with the normal linux drivers. it always triggers a interrupt storm if your cable was plugged and the got unplugged.09:04:00
@sadoon_albader:matrix.orgsadoon_albadershit09:04:21
@hansbauer:matrix.orghansbaueri had to work around that by using udev. made it so that if it was detected it switched from ac to cable, the battery module would be removed and the loaded again. problem solved, but that's not really graceful.09:06:33
