Episode 53. Where there are piles of good wallpapers, lots of headlines, Dan’s been doing nothing, Nick’s been losing Virtual machines and they both are sober.

Battery rhymes with 53, sort of. It’s #systemau

Episode 50. The latency is low, the microphones are back. It’s a fun filled fiftyversary episode with lots of shit talking, a healthy dose of linux, and some amazing music. Dan loves you. Nick loves you. They both love whiskey, beer and Eurovision.

It’s better than the last episode, it’s #systemau

Episode 49

Episode 49. Where we get back behind one mic and one headset. It’s a little loose, it’s a little sloppy but it’s a bit like riding a bike. Nick’s reading feedly and has a stinky spit guard, Dan talks about the Supreme Leader and much much more.

It’s a podcast, it’s #systemau

Episode 48. Where the Wallpaper of the Week kicks in to full gear. We revisit creepy toys, chat about Pocket and don’t say anything worth anything about Cloudbleed. Dan’s off to Indiana, Nick sounds vague and Gray Gray gets cheeky.

It’s pasting the walls, it’s #systemau

Episode 47. Where the internet is still scarce, Distrowatch is back, Arch Linux is the devil, Solus is alright, we’re yet to have an opinion on Lubuntu. Also we play songs and get back in to the swing of things.

It’s back to it’s own idea of normal, it’s #systemau.

How to use discrete AMD gfx card kernel driver:

To use the AMD Graphics card, execute this command:

DRI_PRIME=1 ./executable

If you want to run a Steam game with AMD Graphics Card, you should set the Game Launch Options on Steam with this command:

DRI_PRIME=1 %command%

To test manually if this is working, you can execute this:

glxinfo | grep “OpenGL renderer”

This command will show your Intel Graphics Card. Execute this command to see your AMD Graphics Card:

DRI_PRIME=1 glxinfo | grep “OpenGL renderer”

For example, in my case, when I execute glxinfo | grep “OpenGL renderer”, my output is this: OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Haswell Mobile

But, when I execute DRI_PRIME=1 glxinfo | grep “OpenGL renderer”, my output is like this: OpenGL renderer string: Gallium 0.4 on AMD CAPE VERDE

There are other commands to test, If you want more tests:

glmark2 (use intel) and DRI_PRIME=1 glmark2 (use AMD)

Episode 46. Can’t get the band back together when the band didn’t break up. Nick and Dan present a somewhat loose and not really at all newsy in the slightest episode.
It would not be unfair to say that if you dislike our more rambly episodes then tune back in next episode for the standard distrowatch reading, Linux and Australian tech #systemau.
For the others, here is a chunk of ramble and 2 songs till get us in to the new year. It was fun to record.

2017 huh, #systemau predicts 2017 will last a year.

Episode 45. It starts with a weird noise and gets better from there. Where we round out the year with tales of banks mistaken emails, decide on some new segments, Nick gets distracted and Dan has an announcement. It’s the silly season. Did I really just write silly season? I’m seeing my self out. See you in 2017.
