- Updating D6298: Update FlashROM to V.1.0.1 #
- Enter a brief description of the changes included in this update.
- The first line is used as subject, next lines as comment. Removed unnecessary dependency zlib-devel.

Probably not, but is this enough, @JoshStrobl?
I had already spoken with the developer (I had translated it to Hebrew), and he recommended to wait until 0.4 (0.3 is the development stage of 0.4), since 0.2 is rather buggy (0.3 a.k.a. is running flawlessly here, by the way.
This also happens when playing a fullscreen YouTube video on Firefox Nightly (vanilla).

I had just tested the Maté notification timeout issue here.
Changing either the notification theme or it's position yielded no changes, with the same exact timeout error message.
Apr 28 2019
Thanks, I'll try to diagnose the situation.
As for Maté notifications, I'll try looking into it afterwards.
gnome-multi-writer crashes here whenever a flashdrive is inserted, including if the flashdrive was inserted before gnome-multi-writer was launched.
Apr 25 2019
Notifications time out in Maté, and as such, do not work.
If @JoshStrobl decides as such, this task may be closed.

Interesting news with kernel 5.0.7.
Apr 6 2019
Nothing has changed with kernel 5.0.5, same exact related output.
Here is the full dmesg output, since I see a few additional errors, which (not including the firmware bug, that would be Lenovo's fault, and is completely irrelevant) may or may not be of concern:

Sorry, I had not mentioned the models, since this was happening with every single USB webcam, regardless of model and manufacturer, and regardless of the host computer.
USB webcams were recognized by dmesg, however with an error with accessing their internal files, which caused the initialization failures.

I have now found out that this was due to TLP.
Setting TLP to remember the last state fixed this for me.
The situation has barely changed as of yet, however it instabilities appear slightly later on 5Ghz (after ~30 seconds, as opposed to immediately on 2.4Ghz).

I think you mean package the drivers, in an .eopkg.
And while I currently do not have the budget (there are more pressing matters at the moment), I do intend to order a Huion graphic tablet from GearBest when I'll be able to, so this will also be great for me (of course, getting them mainlined would be better, but until then, this will do).
Jan 22 2019
The situation seems to have turned for the better, though I am still facing instability on many days (some days I get ~1.6MB/s out of the ~3MB/s expected from the extender, sometimes ~1MB/s, but most of the time ~400KB/s, with semi-frequent hangs when downloading large or multiple files (i.e., torrents or system updates).
From speaking with others over at the the Solus-Chat IRC channel, it would appear that this may be due to issues with power management, even though disabling TLP adjustments does not change anything for me.
Kernel 4.20 has resolved all audio issues save for audio testing and default notification tone (I don't use notification tones for anything but testing this issue) in gnome-control-center.
Unfortunately, to get scanning to work properly, you need to install hplip, and set up the printer using the browser-based CUPS interface (or use the CLI), and even then it may take a few a few tries until scanning works properly.
I'm currently testing this theme, and I have to say, I am certainly intrigued.
This is the first theme that has almost convinced me to stop using Arc (the close button looks out of place in Firefox with a theme, and I prefer Arc's grey to Qogir's white titlebars, though I would prefer blue, if done properly).
Jan 15 2019
Thanks, sorry my edit had taken so long.
Edit: Interestingly, Polari is taking a long time to connect to the Solus-Chat channel.
I am not sure whether my question is better suited for #Solus, #Solus-Chat, or #Solus-Dev.
I forget, however I think so.
Jan 7 2019
If I'll have the time, I'll test this on my laptop in the morning (Realtek 8169).
Update: Now it also happens on the 9260, but not on my laptop.
Additionally, the same issue is plaguing my sister's laptop, ever since the last stable sync.
Jan 3 2019
@josephscade that won't help, Firefox would first have to be compiled with the appropriate flags for hardware acceleration to start working, and even then, it may claim that it is enabled when it is not (as I see for most of the related featureset on my end, running vanilla Firefox Nightly), and many users have been claiming instability with it enable (I did too, however it seems to have resolved itself since last week, with no change to what is actually enabled), regardless of the hardware.
I personally use Intel and AMD (just preGCN for now, though), I still need my NVidia card (GT8200, I put my GT9400 in my grandmother's PC, since the iGPU there was not powerful enough for things like 720p on YouTube).
@sahilarora3117 he's already running them.
The newer GTX cards (I think starting from 8xx or 9xx series, I forget precisely which, as I do not have such hardware on me) don't allow reclocking without a signed firmware image, so you cannot truly test for hardware issues without the closed source drivers.
Dec 29 2018
You can try installing Windows 10 (no need for a license, since it would only be for a few hours), and check if the issues persist after installing NVidia's drivers.
If they do, I'd recommend filing a warranty claim, but if not, then we can continue diagnosing this issue.
Dec 27 2018
Does it work properly on Windows, after installing NVidia's drivers?
We should verify whether this is a software or hardware issue (or possibly firmware issue, but I'm not holding my breath for that).
I can say that I have been having similar issues in both Windows and Linux (Solus, Ubuntu, and Arch) with the DeskJet 4765 since around the time of this update, however I did not have time to do anything about this (on Windows I had simply replaced the drivers with an older version that I had previously backed up), since I personally use the printer less than my family, and Windows 10 no longer needs driver installation to get them working, both wired and wireless (this is a WiFi Direct all-in-one).
I had run my usual daily update then, so it should appear on the same day (Monday, 17 of December).
Dec 26 2018
Dec 10 2018
I had just taken a look, and I think that perhaps the issue is that the byt-max98090 is still being forced against chtmax98090?
I had just finished my testing (I had to redo it several times due to kernel updates).
Laptop: Lenovo IdeaPad 300-15ISK, Kernel 4.19.7.
Router: Xiaomi Mi 3, running Padavan, up to 300Mbts@2.4Ghz, up to 866Mbts@5Ghz
Dec 1 2018
No problem, in that case. I'm glad you had managed to solve this riddle (though the issue still needs to be resolved).
Hopefully Intel's new IrisGPU drivers will make things even better in the future.
Nov 30 2018
Do you have a dGPU on your laptop?
Nov 29 2018
As far as I am concerned, it's fine, I can't understand most of it in any case, so someone with a better understanding may be able to make use of it.
You are on the stable update branch, correct?
Have you tried installing libva-intel-driver?
That may or may not help.
Otherwise, and this may seem unrelated, however I need this to check for issues with iwlwifi, do you have an Intel wireless card?
I am guessing that this is probably due to hardware, as the same thing has happened on my sister's laptop, and that was due to the Intel SST drivers (baytrail era) not working properly on Linux.
Yesterday, I had tried to force the newer firmware version be renaming the files, however iwlwifi is refusing to work with the newer microcode, since the driver is coded to only use version 38, so I had instead renamed only version 38 (with .bak), and now it runs on version 34.
Nov 28 2018
Now that all requirements for compiling flashrom have been fulfilled, I would like to step up as the maintainer (at least temporarily, if someone else will want to do so) of flashrom, however I still do not understand the content of the patch required for inclusion (i.e., what changes to package.yml do I need to make?).
Sorry this took so long, I had other things I had to do, but this is great.
And since I was able to fully compile flashrom, I think that this issue can be closed.
Nov 24 2018
@OddTod, I do not think that there is any user-facing way to update the card's firmware, just to get it to load an updated firmware from linux-firmware.
In any case, I would recommend asking System76 about this, especially with their great customer support (I personally am very happy with their support, it's just too bad that warranty support will be complicated in my country, otherwise I would have had a higher chance of buying one of their laptops).
Nov 22 2018
Yes, however a bug report needs to be detailed.
And the model is an essential part of that report.
Do you have a 7265? As I do not (Edit: I too have mistaken one of the posters for the OP).
By the way, @OddTod, after a bit of research, I had found someone posting similar post on the Intel forums.
That person's 7265 came with his laptop, made by Huawei (the model was not posted), and the Intel representative said that their 7265 may have had a customized OEM firmware, perhaps this is a similar situation?
I can say that I had pulled my QCA9377 from a Dell Vostro 3568, so that may have been the reason why it cannot find any networks on kernel 4.9.x-LTS.
Edit: It turns out that the QCA9377 I have is a newer revision than what is officially supported (hw1.1, as opposed to the supported hw1.0).
Sorry, I got confused by your post.
The OP did post that their 8265 works on kernel 4.18.16, though.
And I am not sure what they mean, however it may have started working for them on 4.19.1?
If my 9260 is dying or defective, than so are all my other 9260s, my AC 3165s, my AC 7260, and my Qualcomm 9377 (have not tested my Realtek card yet), so I do not believe that do be the case.
I can confirm that my slowdown issues are occurring across all PCs in the house, Windows and Linux alike (I have only tested the Qualcomm on my laptop), specifically with updated drivers (I am stuck at how to load a newer firmware on Solus, so I cannot count that).
And to be precise, the slowdowns are on the local network, under load, and only if the load goes on for long enough (say, about 3 hours straight, usually while downloading an obscenely large file, just for stability testing).
Why would the 8265 require updated firmware to function at all?
The 9260 works with the the included firmware.
Nov 20 2018
I'd rather not use the extender either, however we have a large house that was built around 20 years ago, and the walls are concrete, so ever since I had moved rooms, I can barely connect to the extender (let alone the router, I'm on the opposite corner of the house) without physically moving my PC across the house.
Hence why my current tests are either in my room, with either the desktop or laptop, or elsewhere in the house, only on my laptop.
Nov 19 2018
Thanks, my worst ping result is generally ~7.5ms (including my test right now, best ~1.5ms, average ~4.6ms), whether to the extender (when directly connected to the extender) or to the router (when directly connected to the router).
Alright, I am starting to get results with Qualcomm.
I seem to be getting similar internet slowdowns with my Qualcomm Atheros QCA9377 (using the ath10k driver), however they are not as sharp as with iwlwifi.
Internal network connection speed always shows either 1MB/s (even when it is faster) or "Unknown".
Nov 18 2018
At work, I have noticed this interesting situation, both with Dell and Lenovo laptops (I haven't gotten around to properly verify this on HP, Toshiba, or Acer, and I did not see it at all on Asus), where they use a mix of Synaptics and Elan components, thus prompting drivers to contain both Synaptics and Elan references.
Now that I have gotten a new Fenvi FV-102 M.2 to PCIe WiFi/BT adapter (I had given my previous one to my sister, along with one of my Intel 9260s), I can again test this on my desktop.
I can confirm the network speed issues are persisting on my desktop, using the Intel Wireless-AC 7260.
Nov 15 2018
I am starting to have suspicions that we may actually have 2 separate issues at hand here, freezes on NVidia hardware, which may or may not be due to their drivers, and which may have already been resolved, and freezes on Intel hardware, which might not be due to graphics after all.
@AntiSC2 Please forgive me if I am wrong here, I do not know whether you had gotten permission or not, however I am not sure whether anyone but the Triage Team (which from what I see, including @Girtablulu) is allowed to add or remove tasks to/from projects.
Nov 12 2018
Well, I had forgotten to post this, but it had happened again on thursday, both on my, and my sister's, laptops.
I would like this variant of Adapta to be included, since the color scheme is one of the reasons I am still sticking with Arc.
Adapta-Eta with a blue color scheme rather than cyan would be awesome.
Edit: I just took a look at the second revision, and I can say that I agree that the contrast is much nicer there in my opinion. though I prefer light themes over dark themes.
Well, the changes are certainly apparent.
Now it turns out that I have a new/returning issue (I had thought that I had managed to get rid of it a long time ago), and that is that kernel 4.9.65 seems to be clinging to me, preventing the cleanup to work on the LTS kernels as well.
As it stands, I currently have kernels: 4.19.1, 4.18.16, 4.9.136-LTS, and 4.9.65-LTS.
All 4.9.x modules since 4.9.65 are still present as a result.
Thanks, and sorry about any confusion I may have caused over at GitHub with my sudden appearance there.

I'd be glad to benchmark both zram and zswap, how do I go about it?
I could try using the Phoronix Benchmark Suite's memory test, as well real-life tests such as opening and using multiple memory intensive apps at the same time.
I have now retested, and also have started using the gestures GUI app, and there is no improvement.
On my laptop, no issues. On the Chromebook, the delay has now been raised to ~1 second, from ~0.75 seconds.
Nov 5 2018
Update on the issue, from a new angle.
I have apparently had this issue, though almost never, over the the past few months, on my desktop (only once so far), an Intel DH55H, with an i3-540 , my laptop (about 15 minutes ago was my 5th time so far), the Lenovo IdeaPad 300-15ISK, with an i5-6200U, and my sister's Chromebook (Twice so far), the Acer CB3-131, with a Celeron N2840.
Since last week, audio appears to be broken on the Acer CB3-131 again, however now, the hardware is properly detected, and the microphone works properly, while the speakers do not output any audio whatsoever.
I have not had the chance to check whether audio works by means of the 3.5mm jack.
That's good to hear, and I think that it may be time to close this thread now?
Good/bad news here.
I have a friend who had moved abroad a few years ago, and he gave me his old computer. though I did not have a chance to take it until a few weeks ago.
It had an unbranded AMD Radeon HD "7570", with "4"GB of GDDR5, though in reality it is a rebadged HD 6770, with 1GB of GDDR5.
I am hoping to get it a proper heatsink, to allow it to work properly with more power draw, and perhaps to mod the hardware a little (a bit farther in the future) to allow it to draw more power in the first place (that is, if the VRM can handle it in the first place), and build it a new firmware (again, in the future), but in the time being, I can help test out pre-GCN hardware again.
Aug 7 2018
I did not have time back then to check anything, however I need to put this on hold until my room is organized enough that I can reach it without moving half the room.
I am extremely sorry, I had checked it back then (results, no difference), however I simply did not have time to post anything until I had forgotten all about it.
I had only remembered about it right now, however my desktop computer is pretty much disabled, since I had placed all of my 3x2GB sticks (as well as one from my father's PC) into my sister's new PC (GA-H77M-D3H Rev.1.1, i7-2600 (our sisters', I am planning on getting a 3700K once I have the budget for anything), Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 550 4GB (the bust our budget would allow, she needs at the very least a 1070 Ti (for video creation), 4x2GB DDR3-1333 (I need to get her more RAM), and my Antec HCG-520 and Antec P9 (I need to get her her own PSU, and mod one of my cases so as to have USB3 in the front)), so I cannot test it from there any further.
Thank you very much, although I was not necessarily talking about the Volume applet, but rather about the driver configuration.
Jul 17 2018
Thank you for the clarification, hopefully that will come to fruition.
Too bad my HD5850 had already dead.
I'll check tonight.
Sorry I had forgotten to post the Ubuntu results, back then I had the same issues.
Tonight I'll reassess the situation.
Alright then, I guess there is no choice.
Alright then, no problem.
Now I am using an Intel 7260, with no inherent differences with my 3165 (aside from higher local network speeds, due to it being a dual band card), and once I manage to remove the whitelist from my laptop's firmware, I have an Intel 9260 waiting.

I wish to apologize for my rude behaviour, as back then I did not realize that AMD's GPU's from the time of mine had recieved next to no Linux-facing support from AMD, and as such, it is presently impossible to get OpenCL running with them on Linux.
Once again, I am sorry.
After some debugging (including trying to manually connect to the wireless network, as my room is on the floor below the router), I had found in the logs lines that pertain to NVidia's drivers, which was certainly odd to me, as I got my MSI 9400GT (from an old PC that someone threw away, also my MSI MS-7527, one of the DIMMs, and a broken Pentium came from there) only after my old case had been damaged (and I did not boot my Intel motherboard in the time between the two cases).
May 12 2018
Alright, I had not had the time to use Solus on my desktop until mow, and I am having the same issues.
