Forum Topic "Linux on ryzen"

someta 4 Builds 1 point 26 days ago

I may be too late, but it's only been two days...

Stick to a recent kernel and Linux should work okay, I would think. If I'm not mistaken, linux-4.15 is when they added official Vega support that the Vega chip on the 2200G needs. Like Memo1010 said, test it with a live usb first.

Me before seeing the CPU cooler:

That's dumb, basing your core build off a single cooler.

Me after seeing the CPU cooler:

O.O I want. Limit my choices all you want, I need this cooler. It looks like a jet engine in your computer.... I TAKE IT ALL BACK!

lodisknight's Completed Build: Bleed Cubbie Blue

someta 4 Builds 2 points 3 months ago

Fair enough!

I also always build with the mindset that I want to be able to add something down the line, even if I may not actually do it. I hate feeling like I “can’t” do something.

I like that approach too...

This is really clean looking!

One question - why the SFX PSU? I know people use them when fitting a full size graphics card into that case, but you don't have one installed? Are you planning on having space for one later for a reason? It seems more expensive to get an SFX PSU and adapter bracket than a decent ATX PSU...

Are you going to run Windows on the machine under normal use, or was it just for testing? I don't know about hydrological modeling, but I thought a decent number of modeling and computational machines run some Linux distribution...

Yeah, these Ryzen APUs are nothting to scoff at! I was really impressed by what my GT 1030 could do, and the 2400G is about the same, with the 2200G not far behind! Pretty impressive for a hundred bucks.

Thanks very much for the kind words.

someta's Completed Build: I Have No Name

someta submitter 4 Builds 1 point 4 months ago

I would imagine it could be because the 1300X has no integrated graphics and there's no RAM (but you got that one). The B350 Tomahawk has video ports so you can use an APU, but I don't believe it has an onboard GPU.

The first thing I can think of is that the PC is booting and can't initialize the graphics card because it's not there. That is, of course, if it can even try to initialize a graphics card when there's no RAM installed. I don't know if it can, so it's entirely possibly the debug light is on because of the lack of RAM, and it can't even get to checking the graphics card.

So, the DRAM light is likely on because there's no RAM, and the debug light is either on because there's no RAM or because there's no graphics card.

Also, try posting in the forums for more help. You'll get a wider audience.

I just used the bolts/nuts that came with the case, they worked great! I had to mess with some pliers on the mesh to get it to line up with the bolts, but it worked great!

Awesome!

This is great, but how did you do that side window to mesh mod? It looks riveted or maybe affixed with hex bolts, but I can't find much more information on that mod.

Someone on the OCN Metis mega-thread did one, but I haven't seen instructions anywhere...

Regardless, this is a +1 from me. Well done!

Goodness, that is quite far back.

Yeah, the original SD card that came in the kit was maybe 4 gigs and had Debian 6 or 7 based Rasbian on it...

I would say an upgrade is worth while if are interested of the Pi 3

I may get one to play around with....

I have not tried OpenArena. It's a free open source FPS game Quake3 Arena, correct?

It is indeed an open source clone of Quake 3 Arena. It's really fun, you may get hooked on it if you try it!

I will let you know and see how it goes

Thanks! Be warned though, you may like it!

Is there a preference? Singe-player and Multiplayer? Or does it not matter as long you know it runs?

It doesn't matter to me, I've always just wanted to know if it really would run!

Eltech's Completed Build: RB-P3

someta 4 Builds 2 points 5 months ago

Not even a Pi 2. The original Pi had a modified Pi Model B, with a single core at 700MHz and either 256 or 512 MB of RAM. I have a 256 MB model.

I think it's probably worth the upgrade, I've been meaning to upgrade for a long time. RasPies are handy for mini servers and whatnot, so I'm sure I'd find a use for it.

Eltech's Completed Build: RB-P3

someta 4 Builds 2 points 5 months ago

I did not realize a Pi could run an MATE desktop, albeit a customized one... Then again, I've only got an a original Model B, so I'm mostly stuck with stuff like Arch Linux ARM for maximum performance.

Think a Pi3 is worth an upgrade? It is far faster than the original...

Eltech's Completed Build: RB-P3

someta 4 Builds 2 points 5 months ago

Have you tried running OpenArena on the Pi3? I've heard it's possible, but I don't have a 3 to test it on, only a Pi1 Model B. I could see a fun little OpenArena/Quake3 LAN party on these puppies.

Thank you!

Linux works great for most tasks except AAA title games but you can run Linux until you get the money and just dual boot and choose your operating system at startup based on what you want to do.

This is exactly what I'm talking about!

Forum Topic "Old router to boost wifi"

someta 4 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

No problem, good luck!

Forum Topic "Old router to boost wifi"

someta 4 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

An access point is wired to the main router, a bridge connects to the router over wireless, so the only thing wired to the bridge is the computer you want internet access for.

Access points go

current router -> Ethernet -> access point -> WiFi to device

Bridges go

current router -> WiFi -> bridge -> Ethernet to device

I would suggest at least trying bridge mode, if available on the old router. You wouldn't have to wire anything to the current router.

Forum Topic "Old router to boost wifi"

someta 4 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

Respectfully, not enough latency to consider making a booster out of a strainer... In fact, it would probably work better to wire to the router as a bridge (if it supports it, not all do). I've wired an ASUS RT-N66U as a wireless bridge before, and I ended up with a far better connection than using a WiFi adapter.

Setting up the old router as a repeater would be an option, but that's where you might get a slower connection and increased latency, as you are rebroadcasting a wireless connection. As a repeater, all wireless connections going to the repeater get funneled back to the router over wireless, same as an access point does with a wired connection. With a wireless bridge, you are using one central unit to pick up the wireless signal and sending it over a hardwired connection. Think of a bridge like a gigantic WiFi adapter that can connect to multiple devices over Ethernet.

Forum Topic "34' vs 27' battle"

someta 4 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

I don't have a direct answer, but I can offer a word of advice: try to find a store nearby that sells 4K 27" monitors. I have a 27" 1440p monitor and it's just about the perfect pixel density. My 4K "monitor" (actually a TV) is 40", and I feel anything smaller would be too hard to read text on without scaling up everything, and not all programs like that. If you can play around with a 27" 4K monitor in store, it'll give you an idea of what it would be like to own one.

Forum Topic "Thoughts on the new Nzxt Motherboard"

someta 4 Builds 1 point 5 months ago

The motherboard looks kind of cool, I guess, but the price throws me off the most. I'd hate to pay that much for a motherboard. Then again, a motherboard for me is mostly used to hold everything together. I don't overclock, I don't need fancy onboard audio, nor USB-C, so basic boards work just fine for me.

Forum Topic "Video Editing Rig.."

someta 4 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

I was thinking to having a decent GPU nothing out of hand lol even though its only gonna be starcraft or civilization.

Fair enough. I was even going to suggest a weaker GPU, but I don't play Starcraft. I know a GT 1030 will run light games like Minecraft and older-engine based games like Xonotic quite admirably.

Forum Topic "Video Editing Rig.."

someta 4 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

im not too sure if my RAM is going to fit with the Noctua NH-D15 SE-AM4...

The first thing to check is DIMM height, I know Noctua has specs on their website for what height DIMMs will fit under their cooler, and what height requires raising the fan. The really fun part is figuring out how high the RAM DIMMs are. I usually can't find good manufacturer dimensions.

Forum Topic "Video Editing Rig.."

someta 4 Builds 1 point 6 months ago

What's the reason for the 1070? GPU acceleration? Or just a nice Starcraft experience.

Also, what programs do you use? Do they benefit more from threads or IPC (from the processor, I assume threads if you've considered this already).

Maybe Ubuntu is more optimized for compiling things.

It suppose it might be that.

Thanks a ton for all your time and info. It gave me a lot more info about running these components that were released fairly recently on Linux. =)

Yeah, no problem! It gave me something fun to do for a few hours!

someta's Completed Build: I Have No Name

someta submitter 4 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Yeah, so these numbers are all over the place.... 214.37 for Debian... Phoronix might be too inconsistent (which is weird - it's literally a script to compile the kernel)... I'll still see about upgrading the kernel though.

https://openbenchmarking.org/result/1712161-AL-DEBIANKER00 https://openbenchmarking.org/result/1712161-AL-DEBIANKER00,1712153-KH-UBUNTUKER43

someta's Completed Build: I Have No Name

someta submitter 4 Builds 1 point 7 months ago

Did a test on Ubuntu while Debian was downloading and flashing. The timed kernel compile took 165.08 seconds... Considering I got over 440 seconds on Manjaro, I'm going to rerun the Manjaro results after I get the Debian ones. I mean, the packages are different between Ubuntu and Manjaro, but that shouldn't more than halve the time... Something must have changed!

The GPU actually has a small fan on it. It gets to around 50-60ish playing Xonotic or Minecraft.

Wow! You are really dedicated to helping me. Thanks a ton for your time.

No problem! I enjoy helping people, and I have the chance!

Hopefully after you have it installed we can at least see what performance you get and compare it to your current distro (Manjaro, is that correct?). =)

I'm running both Manjaro and Ubuntu, Manjaro on kernel 4.15, Ubuntu on 4.9. I'll run the kernel compile test from the Phoronix test suite, that should give us a decent idea of performance.
