I just installed a new linux distro. I have an old account that used a eCryptfs parttion as a home directory. I still have the home directory. I copied the appropriate lines from the old /etc/passwd and group files to the net versions. What else do I need to mount and access the home directory? submitted by /u/Thad_The_Man [link] [comments]

I know the general consensus is BFQ for HDD and mq-deadline for SSDs, but I have tested BFQ for the last few days on my spinning disk, and my desktop seemed to be considerably slower. There was a noticeable additional lag for opening any applications. Just a echo mq-deadline | sudo tee /sys/block/sda/queue/scheduler and voila, everything seems to be normal again. Maybe it would have behaved better than deadline during high I/O load, but on normal usage it felt annoying. I remember a few years ago I used Liquorix (default BFQ), and then I switched to the Ubuntu kernel (default deadline), and the Ubuntu kernel also felt more responsive to me. But I always thought the reason was because (at least back in the day) Liquorix set vm.dirty_background_ratio=20 and vm.dirty_ratio=50, which are a lot more than the already absurd default values. My kernel is the 5.0.0-27-generic from Ubuntu 19.04. Any similar experiences? submitted by /u/hodler_of_crypto [link] [comments]

So Microsoft is dropping Windows 7 in January 2020. What desktop environment of Manjaro is people's favorite? I booted XFCE from a live USB today. Pretty nice. I like how customisable it is too. I'm using a first gen Dell XPS 13 so the screen is small. Which one do you should I should use? I like that Manjaro is a rolling release and based on Arch, but more stable.

Intel has a great auto-overclocking tool. It may not reach the peak frequency for manual overclocking, but because it is adaptive, it would save me ~$150 per year, since my pc is running 24/7 and mostly idle. Very unfortunately, it seems IPM is only available in Windows. Is there a workaround, or alternative utility for Linux? submitted by /u/DeontologicEthics [link] [comments]
