ZeroDesign and Syntax Error be thy name. Now that we have found half a grain of joule to #dostuff, the internet said "DraugerOS is your best optimized for gaming linux distro!" and so here it is.
roam your hands and click on shiney or moving things to see things and stuff
in 2023 everything needs disclaiming :
  1. We are not human, we will have nothing to do with a species thats killing the planet on which we are stuck in this body thats deteriorating without any means of fixing it, they say its time but where we come from time has not been proven to exist. We think its corrosion due to the toxic atmosphere their presence creates.
  2. atm there should be no crumbs of any kind. If we end up using jquery or -ui thats their problem but we assume they dont track in their plugins tho its probably not below them.
  3. All content here on /fiaT-UX is a journey and observations. THESE ARE NOT TUTORIALS - if you brick or break your stuff doing anything thats listed here, dont call us ... call ... i dont know ... someone else.

YO HO HO in php, drag divs and scroll in divs as you would in terminals on desktop where applicable

install notes
  1. the install didnt work off the bat and needed some tinkering
  2. we pick "erase drive" to do a standard install on one drive in the system
  3. the installer runs out just fine but on reboot it wont get to the GUI(x / xfce)
  4. moving to tty2 (ctrl-alt-f2 this is not a linux tutorial theres more than ample on that internet overthere if you really wanna it shouldnt be too far to go as this is not rocket science) shows a cursor blinking
  5. (you can check tty1 for the msg log where it told us "nvidia not found in /lib/modules/etc etc ...)
  6. as it turns out it takes "lightdm stop" (sudo ofcourse) to end that , but after reboot still no go
  7. the eventual solution was to purge all nvidia drivers
  8. "sudo apt remove --purge ndivia-*"
  9. "sudo apt autoremove --purge"
  10. reboot into a thing has like 1hz refreshrate (nouveau it says)
  11. then reinstall (in this case v525) the nvidia drivers again
  12. "sudo apt install nvidia-driver-xxx nvidia-driver-dkms-xxx" (in our case xxx=525, which atm of writing was the most recent but 510 still works fine on p2 mint 20.3 around the same gl2 benchmarks
  13. just that upped the framerate in solace crafting by about 5 avg compared to linux mint 21
  14. with the 525 drivers working draugerOS certainly seems to be the better choice over linux mint for linux-native steam games - the screen seems brighter and sharper too with the latest drivers and Solace (the game) runs faster , "feels" faster than the fps counter would indicate, the others already ran 60 fps and its a 60hz screen since we wouldnt know what to do with 140 hz without bionic eye implants so thats gud
  15. on top of that, not necessary but since we could, we cloned the drive to a same-size ssd drive (linux dd if=/dev/sdb of=/dev/sdc status=progress) - CHECK YOUR DRIVES/DEVICES with "fdisk -l" or the GUI disks or gparted utility or similar , this pretty much doesnt have an undo button and also is best not done before breakfast if you cant leave the pc(s) running. The result is quite amazing, tho not necessary since all the games so far run fine (only linux-native have been checked) once in memory, the time to boot OS, start steam, or any browser and likely in-game for stuff like CIV or SMAC (not actually checked) is pretty much amazing. Ofcourse : caveat : the steem update method (the most recent one) will probably wear your ssds out faster since those have a set lifespan, with mechanicals its hard to tell tho wear and tear should be worse too ... but we dont consider gaming partitions and installs to be critical so that doesnt matter much. And also we no longer tend to buy early access (but it can happen) since a lot of scum uses that to make fast money and run, as well as AAA milliondollarstudios selling out fast and never finishing the product to the 100% mark. We basically try not to buy any game thats not out for at least a few months (if you game you should know why, heh .. theres no respect for the customer in millionnaire land, take valheim ofcourse .. they show it can be done for more in less AND grant you a good experience on top.
  16. ftr: we try to apt update and apt upgrade -y on every boot of draugeros (in terminal) - something we dont do a.o. on the install that holds the webserver and stuff, thats only every once and so (and also stil has 20.3 instead of 21 b/c the inline distro upgrade full seems to break among other things php - but since draugerOS is headon full experimental we try to keep up with every update, break or not. (rtfm : this is not a tutorial - this is our personaly experience with the stuff we have here on the scrapyard)
  17. installer didnt work b/c it hung on some "invalid NULL filename error".
    • - sudo flatpak --system repair
    • - sudo flatpak --user repair
    seems to have fixed that, all stuff on the list updated after that ... (the devguy says on the site that you wont just get it for free as its more or less a one-man project for free before breakfast)
  18. doesnt work : additional drivers (that standard way to install or switch graphic drivers in the GUI. It gets some kind of python "missing EOL error" - "nonetype object has no attribute "EOL" - we dont speak python so we wont bother and wait for the next release.
