brent added a comment to T4243: Iscan plugins for Epson Perfection v19 scanner.

With respect,
how does one go about incorporating a plug-into an exisitng package like Iscan? You would need to disassemble the iscan yaml, rewrite, relink, lots of trial and error I suppose. Is it doable for a mostly layman? Roughly speaking that is. Thank you for any feedback.

DataDrake closed T8876: Incorperating the rtl8812au driver as Wontfix.

Nope. We don't allow out-of-tree wireless drivers as they have a habit of making changes to the power output of the transmitter which can violate all of the regulatory testing done to ensure these devices operate with in allowable ranges. We have zero interest in getting into legal troubles with regulatory agencies or potentially causing our users to unknowingly violate their own local regulations. The one notable exception is the Broadcom drivers that we ship because those come directly from the manufacturer. Realtek do not do this as they work with the kernel developers directly.

Cyan added a comment to T8822: All USB ports suddenly stopped working!.

Hey, just updating on this. Tried switching to the LTS kernel, tried booting from a USB directly (to see if the bootup sequence could detect the USBs without the kernel being involved at all) and switching out the NVME for one with OpenSUSE (just in case it really was something solus specific that was the problem) none of these things helped at all. At this point, i think its probably safe to conclude that the problem must be on the hardware end. Since the USBs are on daughterboards maybe the USB controller got fried somehow? Anyway, i'm gonna see about getting the hardware looked at. Thanks for the help though!

So update - 5.5.11-151.current - vertical lanes still show up, OS is snappy but shutdown takes a little longer than on LTS.

This is, apparently, the "upstream" fix: https://lore.kernel.org/linux-wireless/iwlwifi.20200318081237.46db40617cc6.Id5cf852ec8c5dbf20ba86bad7b165a0c828f8b2e@changeid/

moriel5 added a comment to T8752: xorg-driver-video-intel causing freezes (intel igpu).

@aquasp Thanks, it appears I also had that installed.
Back when I had initially set up Solus, I installed this to provide additional codec coverage, however looking at the Arch Wiki page, it is pretty much irrelevant unless you are using Nouveau on NVidia's 900-series or newer cards, and even then, it only appears to support decoding (plus, no support by either Firefox or Chromium).
Otherwise, everything it supports seems to be supported by VA-API and/or NVidia's proprietary driver.

ikeycode added a comment to T8752: xorg-driver-video-intel causing freezes (intel igpu).

As for the presence of the Intel DDX, it is needed for older chipsets as the KMS driver will cause issues there (real hangs). Fedora carried patches to explicitly use KMS on newer generations and fallback to the Intel DDX in all
other cases. May be worth looking into.

ikeycode added a comment to T8752: xorg-driver-video-intel causing freezes (intel igpu).

OK just to add fuel to the fire I've been getting the same issue, I have to switch to tty1 and full reset. This is why I don't think its a KMS issue otherwise my tty would be locked out and trying to perform
a reset would hit a kernel panic. I get this several times a day when working at the library so I have to save often or risk losing all my work. It seems, in my case at least, explicitly tied to the alt+tab window.
Personally I think some of the UB changes in git are somewhat untested and are causing runaway issues, and would need review (mutter/daemon/etc) as they're causing full X server locks.

aquasp added a comment to T8752: xorg-driver-video-intel causing freezes (intel igpu).

Well, I can confirm that I was wrong in the beginning. After removing xorg drive, the freezes were occurring much less frequently. But, I broke my system after accidentally deleting bin folder (don't ask me how I did it) and then, after a clean install, the freezes were much less frequent even with xorg drivers. I also noticed that xorg drivers make my waterfox faster.

moonglow added a comment to T8780: Solus USB drive won't boot: amd-vi unable to write to iommu perf counter.

That's probably a red-herring. Not everything printed to the kernel log that looks like an error, is actually a fatal one.
Can you try booting without "quiet" and "splash" set so that you can see what other errors are printed?

Solus isn't installed yet, so how do I boot without quiet and splash?
Do I need to modify the GRUB file inside the Solus ISO?
Meanwhile, I've updated the BIOS (I had to install Windows 10 just to do that, because Acer only provides BIOS updates through Windows) and then tried again to install Solus.
This time, the IOMMU error is still there, but is followed by this:
"a start job is running for rebuild dynamic linker cache"
The start job keeps running forever, as it has no time limit.
I've Googled this error and found out that a lot of people are having this issue with the same laptop, so it's probably Acer's fault.
BTW, Secure Boot is disabled, otherwise it wouldn't even let me get to this point.
