joebonrichie added a comment to T316: Make it possible to use zram (for machines with little RAM).

Did some additional testing. I used zram-perf to bench zram modifying as required and then modified it again to bench a swapfile on a sata ssd.

In practice, it seems to work well just to have the multi function printer in the group "lp". Scanning then works if the user is allowed to print (is member of lp). Other distributions seem to deal with the issue this way.

JoshStrobl closed T9878: Bluetooth Problems as Invalid.

I would suggest filing your issue at https://bugzilla.kernel.org/ as this is more a kernel issue and part of the linux-bluetooth component + bluez.

mrdaltro added a comment to T6553: Make it possible to use zswap (for machines with little RAM).

Basic research and we sure can find a lot of resource about the performance improvement zswap can be (I'm listing it below). If devs are afraid, remember Linux is a modular highly customizable system. Not just zswap, but even zram (!) is default in Fedora for more than a year right now, what I think it's not desirable, as I think zswap is a better alternative (some data it's really meant to be stored in mass storage, even in runtime, the exception is for memory pressure situations as I'd like to state), as it's really polished Linux feature, it's in there for years (since Linux 2) and it's the default (enabled by default) for the official/mainline stable Linux image currently (and for a lot of Android devices right now, and as an example I could say even my device Asus A001D, but I know about a lot of Xiaomi phones also). I see the purpose of having a kinda "stripped down" kernel, but sure just one or two modules wouldn't have great impact for image's size.

WannaBeOCer added a comment to T9163: Desktop Flicker with Vesa Adaptive Sync Enabled.

@DataDrake I noticed this behavior continues again but instead of flickering I'm getting a black screen that flashes when opening apps. If I disable GSync Compatible I no longer get the flashes. I'm currently using a Titan RTX, LG 27GN950 monitor and DP that came with the monitor. As stated previously the issue doesn't occur on KDE Neon, Fedora 32 and openSUSE Tumbleweed. The main difference I observed is that they lock the refresh rate on the desktop while on Solus, Adaptive Sync is enabled on the desktop.

UncleSlacky added a comment to T2842: WiFi drops soon after boot.

I've been having similar issues with the rtl8723be driver - I've never had an issue in years with Solus until the last few weeks, but now the connection drops after a few minutes and just looking at the NetworkManager menu (right-clicking on the systray icon) is enough to "wake up" the wifi. I've tried disabling TLP and adding fwlps=0 to the modprobe options (assuming that it's an extreme power-saving issue), but most of the time the issue recurs.

Likely related to R1964:73f13fe74dca: Update to 20210511 which included updated iwlwifi 8000 series firmware. While I recognize you aren't on the device called out in the topic of https://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=203709, I did check that this affects 8265 as well and newer comments still indicate it being an issue in newer comments. Is this on a 5Ghz network or 2.4Ghz? Some are reporting better results on 2.4.

I tried plugging HDMI but no luck. The driver still crashed. After that I wanted to plug only one DP cable, but nope - it crashed permanently. But I'm able to access other TTYs on previous kernel.

@szmarczak Thanks for the details. I'll monitor that thread. Unfortunately while at first people said that 465.31 fixed their issue it seems they were mistaken. If more people are affected by this maybe we should roll the update back, but on the other hand a lot of other issues were fixed in those releases.

Already years of topic, no explanations and we don't even have zram module distributed with mainline kernel for us to manually set things up. Also, I found out now that I can't just "zcat /proc/config.gz". Why?
