    Help me before I lose everything. I was hit by a nasty ransomware...

    If the files are encrypted, and you want to attempt to recover them, the master key for whatever you were hit with might already be released. Do a search around the net once you determine what you got hit with. Two examples...

    Ubiquiti AP Pro reset

    Can you access the APs over SSH? If you can, typically set-inform http://ip-of-controller:8080/inform will get the AP to communicate with the new network controller (raspi). If you don't know the SSH login, boot up the original PC where you installed the network controller and grab the SSH...

    New Router?

    I'll start by saying I'll recommend ubiquiti all day. I'd be remiss if I didn't tell you the full of it though. Since it looks like you're going down the ubiquiti road, I'll throw in that if you go the ubiquiti route, what they label as "stable" means something different than the rest of the...

    Hardware acceleration, or lack thereof

    Discovered a couple of additional things last night. MDS and SMT should both be disabled to take advantage of the recent patches for vulnerabilities. Turned those off and I lost 2 threads. Browser still runs like shit when streaming video. And, streaming in mpv still runs great. While testing...

    Hardware acceleration, or lack thereof

    LOL. it doesn't matter if I took it right away or two minutes later. The result is the same. I was trying to help you understand why the load hadn't spiked yet. I've provided more than enough evidence that supports all my previous statements. There's no question there. You still gotta take...

    Hardware acceleration, or lack thereof

    Hence the whole thread... Now you get it... As adament as you were that it didn't matter, now hopefully you see the gripe behind hardware acceleration being just as important on Linux as in Windows. And, my initial statements that when I'm talking to anyone and trying to make a solid...

    Hardware acceleration, or lack thereof

    Didn't mean to get your hopes up. I only took that screenshot before the load had a chance to increase. It increased similar to what happened in Fedora. No noticeable difference. If it were a network card/driver issue, I would expect the same limitation whether I'm using the browser or mpv. I...

    Hardware acceleration, or lack thereof

    This is exactly my point. Software rendering is shit. Hardware acceleration should be standard. Anyway, here's KDE Neon

    Hardware acceleration, or lack thereof

    I'm running Fedora. I've currently got KDE/Plasma, Gnome/Wayland, and Gnome/X11 installed. Downloading KDE Neon right now. Will update thread shortly. Did you see my screenshots with hardware acceleration?

    Hardware acceleration, or lack thereof

    For comparison, I did the same thing using hardware acceleration. Again, the only difference here is I am able to leverage hardware acceleration as mpv (the player being used) supports this ability. Again, X11 performed worse using the exact same command. KDE/Plasma. ~13-15% (not exact)...

    Hardware acceleration, or lack thereof

    You're being accusatory. And, your guilty conscience thinks I'm getting defensive. You're dodging the truth until your last breathe. I don't have time to explain something for 2 days when I've already recorded the information previously. You have a unique ability of projecting. In fact, after...

    Hardware acceleration, or lack thereof

    I can't possibly keep wasting my time trying to explain this to you. 1. Software rendering runs like shit on my laptop on X11 and Wayland. 2. Hardware acceleration runs great on my laptop. 3. Hardware acceleration runs great whether X11 or Wayland. 4. No official browser support for hardware...

    Hardware acceleration, or lack thereof

    No! You aren't getting it. Software rendering is what X11 uses. It works exactly the same as Wayland. Unless it's hacked with the ported version of Chrome. You summarized your own ineptness best in your own statement. How ironic. Nobody attacked you. Stop playing the innocent victim. You came...

    Hardware acceleration, or lack thereof

    Read my first post. Software rendering makes my laptop hot as fuck. So, yes, I do need hardware acceleration. It keeps my laptop cool and allows it to play 1080p video without spinning the fan up to max. Regardless of how you feel, or what does or doesn't work on your machine. On my laptop, this...

    Hardware acceleration, or lack thereof

    I don't think you understand my results that I've posted. I'm using hardware acceleration in Wayland. It's less taxing on my hardware than in X11. It's running beautifully and I have no complaints about hardware acceleration in Wayland. ;) mpv, VLC, etc can leverage it just fine. It's browsers...
