Also thought I'd mention that this is my typical package count with my regular stuff installed and a good base VSIDO going.

Nice to see you lwfitz!  8) Looking good!

Back to my goto VSIDO.  Played with Arch for a couple weeks...

Clean VSIDO, with Fluxbox of course...  mof, I don't even have another window manager installed on my goto, which never changes!  ???

Had a hard time installing any distro on that T400 didn't you? Thinkpads seem to be problematic.
Surprisingly no!  I did however have to beef up my wifi skills using stuff like netctl, wpa_supplicant, and dhcpcd command line tools.  I've had less than pleasurable experiences over there at the forum, and almost equivalent when it comes to installing arch.  This time was different though for some reason.  It actually did go pretty simple.  I even put it on a partition on the newer MSI.  Was able to get wifi up with virtually no problems...



Back down to the 4.12 Kernel, which seems to run much cooler.  That is however without the subwoofer.py file running that kicks in the DynAudio subwoofer built into the bottom of the lappy. :'(

This one is a 17" so quite big and heavy.  A true beast...  :)

hehe, my 18 year old daughter just returned from a weeks stay in Boston (at a hostel?).  Of all bands to go see she had to see the 'Gorillaz'!  It was the trip of a lifetime for her and she loved every minute of it. (she also paid for all 3 tickets which were up front in the covered pavillion).  One of the friends she was trying to help out bailed at the last second, so she was a little upset about the 300 bucks she wasted.  She said she'd do it again though, so she had a really good time.  Nice to see you around still lwfitz! :)

^Very nice PackRat!

So it turns out it isn't the Kernel using up the cpu, and causing temps to run high.  Tis the subwoofer.py script I'm running to get my 5.1 DynAudio sound system on the laptop working.  Totally worth it...

Almost 10 hours later...



A lot cooler.  Still going to go with the 4.13 rc's for now...

Rebooted to the 4.11 Kernel.  Pretty dramatic results.  Cpu usage is due to a python script I'm running to enable the 5.1 surround sound.   Saber HiFi.  The woofer is very nice.  Very great sound for a laptop.

yup, 4.12 'not good' imo, runs hot and considerably more cpu use.  My second go round with a freshly compiled 4.12 Kernel image.  :(
going to take a look at 4.13-rc2.  That is what is brutally beating my laptop as you can see below...




htop: (while the Kernel is compiling)



I didn't check the compile time after, but it was less than 30 minutes...

Yes indeed, the efi iso's have been a serious god-send!  Loving it.  Mof, I've even got the subwoofer working with 5.1 surround sound!  8)

nVidia is holding up well on my system; older card but not quite legacy.

Same here.  Except for the card, GTX980M w/8 Gbs gddr4 RAM running the 384.47 nvidia driver. (beta)

that might be it. (setting)  I've got 4 conky's running that are started in my ~/.fluxbox/startup file.  They are started in a 'staggered' manner and using ver 1.10 of Conky.

Anyone else having this issue with nitrogen and conky -

Not having any issue.  My 'goto' and up-to-date regular vsido.  Just tried resetting wallpaper and logged out and it was fine.  Also did a convenient 'up' and rebooted, wallpaper was fine.  Sorry no issues with conky through that either.

Hmmm, now after a little playing, can't break it at all...  :)
