I’d recommend separate physical disks if possible. Set your boot order via uefi

Is it not Stingray? Or is stingray a derivative of bitsquid?

I see! Thank you for the info.

Trying to Download Fallout New Vegas on Lutris but getting an error code. I feel like I need to manually select 32 Bit download but Ihave no idea, (lemmy.world)

I downloaded Fallout 3 through gog.com and as soon as I figured what the hell I was doing, I got it downloaded and playing great. I’m on a Chromebook Plus with an i5 and Iris Xe graphics. When I go to download NV, it prompts me to a message that tells me Wine is preparing a 64 Bit download . Shouldn’t it be 32 Bit?...

What issue are you facing there? Can you tell us which GPU and driver you’re using?

Strix Point is a monolithic die APU, though to your point, it’s comprised of a variety of IP (CPU, GPU, NPU, IO / SoC functionality) from across the business.

Strix Halo is rumoured to be a multi-chip product.

Any advice for a long-time Linux user, first-time Linux *desktop* user?

I’m a regular user of Linux systems but apart from a couple of test Ubuntu installs many years ago they’ve always been containers or VMs with no DE which I can throw away when I break them. The Steam Deck showcasing how far Wine/Proton has come combined with Windows being Windows has given me the push; I’ve made a Mint...

Very key points! Some distros will also accommodate window’s default timekeeping if a win install is detected, and also need to be changed retroactively to prevent wonky behaviour with DST

Speaking from my experience with fedora and windows 10 and 11 within the same system.

  1. As others have stated here, If you can, please keep each operating system on it’s own physical disk. Disconnect others if you perform a new Windows install on any, as it’ll attempt to store its bootloader on disk 0 regardless of the OS destination drive.
  2. LUKS2 is part of the fedora workstation setup, I imagine it will be presented to you upon install with Mint. If you’re on separate physical disks, you shouldn’t have much to worry about, but as far as I’m aware, you’re okay to use disk encryption on drives partitioned with two systems.
  3. There’s a Dropbox .deb and .rpm for linux as far as I can tell, but I cannot attest to its quality or how well it integrates with a given file manager. Cloud accounts are generally well supported amongst the key desktop environments, for which I’d consider Cinnamon to be a part of.
  4. Modern, mainstream distributions are pretty GUI friendly. I fully expect you to be able to get by on Mint without needing to touch the command line much if at all. That said, I grab CLI oriented tools from the terminal and graphical apps from the app store. Enabling flathub will give you access to a broad selection of graphical software so by all means, go for it.
  5. I’m not wise so I’ll hold back here. I will say that Fedora has allowed me to approach linux as an absolute casual for nearly 6 years now.

I don’t know what I was expecting when I saw the headline. I fully assumed it would be something goofy like a German Shepard holding a glock in its mouth.

This is far bleaker, though perhaps not as upsetting as asking a good boy to do harmful things.

From what I understand (which is to say, very little), the population of other species of bees are still somewhat in danger. The other species play a critical role in pollination.

Well there’s something to look forward to. Appreciate the heads up

Thank you for this info! I expected this to be more feasible on the Intel models for whatever reason. Glad to see a glimmer of hope for the AMD platforms.

vikingtons,
@vikingtons@lemmy.world avatar

Yes, exactly this, though I know Jeremy Soller from System76 has been working on Coreboot for AMD UMA platforms a couple years back.

There’s hope, still 😅

I suppose it is a fairly recent development all in all, but I hope you find what you’re looking for

We’re a ways away from reaching equivalent performance characteristics of the currently available options they have with RISC V, but I would also love to see that as well.

vikingtons,
@vikingtons@lemmy.world avatar

That’s fair enough, though one of the characteristics I had in mind was also battery life (that said, it would be at a given level of performance so either way).

Also definitely not thrilled about things like ME, Pluton and so on.

Appreciate you following up to edit for context.

was this the one where grandpa was babysitting the kids whilst Marge and Homer went to marriage counselling, the kids trash the house and grandpa plays the ‘feeb’ act to get them to tidy up after?

vikingtons,
@vikingtons@lemmy.world avatar

oh noes :(

Thanks for the reminder though :)

I don’t quite understand it but it’s adorable and I’m here for it.

vikingtons,
@vikingtons@lemmy.world avatar

understood, I’ll make a note of this

I would also like to fit a little adroable crime into my daily schedule
