Now I've not changed the scheduler yet but will later to test things out.
So far kernel 5.5 in with no issues Nvidia driver 440.59 works  :)

Release Announcements / SuperGamer 5 Release Notes
« Last post by Darin on January 12, 2020, 04:44:58 PM »
The SuperGamer v5 has arrived. It is based upon the 19.10 base, 64 bit ONLY, which has the 5.3 kernel and XFCE 4.14. I have included Installers for Steam, Lutris and PlayOnLinux as well as cleaned up the look and feel of it. Please DO NOT try to install the games running live as they will not install and they are ONLY to be installed after a Hard Drive install. Use the Live Boot to test your hardware. UEFI support is still hit and miss with the new grub but it does work in Live mode. I am aware of Ryzen 3 support and some motherboards not working. I am trying to figure out a fix as this is a Linux issue and others have issues. The firmware is corrupted on them for the Linux drivers. This is themed darker and the base does not have any games installed. This was done on purpose to give users a choice on how they want to customize their system. If a user want to install most of the games, they should use this, be warned, this will download almost 12GB's then have an installed size of around 20GB's, you need to run this out of a terminal:
Code: [Select]
pkexec apt install games*

I am aware of some issues with Ryzen and AMD graphics not working correctly. I am actively trying to figure out a fix that does not affect everyone. The good news is, that if you use NVIDIA graphics cards and select 3rd party install option while installing to the hard drive, you will get the drivers to install. Just to put things in perspective, it took several days of writing the game install scripts so that they worked like what I wanted them to do. Any user who has sudo access can install the games and the icons are removed from all users desktop and any new user desktop that might be added in the future as well as the menu being fixed for all users both current and future. Seems like a normal thing to do, but it is not setup that way by default with the games putting icons wherever they want. This only applies to Steam, Lutris and PlayOnLinux as installing those games I did not fix if they are broken as there are way to many of them to attempt. I also went back to Firefox for some security and performance compared to Chromium.

Software Issues / nvidia+5.4.7 kernel working how to
« Last post by moddingden on January 03, 2020, 05:47:56 PM »
Hi; ok  so i ran across the  nvidia forums and an answer from someone there  stating to a user that he was trying to use a kernel compiled  w gcc 9.0. this sent me on a path to this site:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jonathonf/gcc-9.0
sudo apt-get install gcc-9  was norberts answer

later answer was :
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-toolchain-r/test
sudo apt update
sudo apt install gcc-9 by ISanych

this was added later:
just as a reminder to people reading this sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/gcc gcc /usr/bin/gcc-9 60 --slave /usr/bin/g++ g++ /usr/bin/g++-9 JHBonarius
now this last line gives and error if you use top repo but does work gcc 9.0 is default .

I use ukuu(newer version pay for $10) to get the kernel, not an rc final.
now before this with nvidia 440.36  was a no dice and complained about firmware missing still working on that but my net works.
dkms would not install etc .

after adding the above and trying it later  it worked (today was tried and setup).

linux it never fails to  show how great the folks are that are willing to help.

I think I have a RC1 candidate ready. It is going through outside testing to see if I forgot something or an issue that I do not have. I have added a desktop icon to install Steam silently with notifications letting you know to be patient as it is a silence install as well as another notification of it being done as well as deleting the desktop icon.
Release Announcements / New 19.10 based beta
« Last post by Darin on December 03, 2019, 10:17:44 PM »
I am building a 19.10 based beta. Here is a quick glance at the changed desktop.

There will be at least a couple of beta builds but this is pretty good right now and the iso is sitting at 1.4GB in size. I also took off Timeshift and put back on Systemback. I am aware of no support but it is easier to use for most people. I do have working iso's built. I will be doing a final one soon after I fix all of the little stuff and it is tested by a few testers. This is pretty stable but only time will tell.

I have heard reports of it not working. This is a Nvidia issue and hopefully they release an updated driver soon. I am assuming AMD/ATI drivers are in the same boat.
