hello, so installed and have been using rc1, without major issues, except mouse pointer won’t resize, this is on an Intel i5 integrated video, desktop. 32G Ram, SSD, etc.
I’ll just list the issues, (sorry I didn’t search other than the summary 1st few 4.1 pages, nor the github).
with whonix there is a a popup that appears then fades about “swdate” despite the swdate being correct, not sure on the behaviour that makes it appear, likely with the template -ws updates
I would like my monitors to sleep then turn off when not being used but have never been clear on which takes priority the xscreensaver “blank after” “cycle after” or the Xfce Power Manager display → “blank after” etc; for now I’ve set the latter to “never” ; and for Xscreensaver Mode: disable screen saver; and am just using the buttons on the monitors;
I am doing this because lately the monitors turn off, and can’t be reawakened, so I’ve had to hard reboot ; *However,
- I’ve also been getting hard lockups of the whole system; I’d be happy to supply any logs if I knew what to look for or post, this has happened 3 times (2 while monitors were On recently); *But I’m thinking this might also be why the monitors didn’t reawaken??
…hence for now I’ve been playing with the Award UEFI, I notice that PCIe for graphics was enabled though, mine are integrated, so changed that (though it has never been touched through all my 4.0.1 use.
…so called speed-step I’ve engaged and disengaged seems to freeze regardless, for now its disengaged, and also disengaged “turbo boost”
so I’m wondering is there any official suggested Uefi setup for major Uefi makers ; instead of the guesswork, (I am aware of the documentation that says this would be too difficult, nonetheless) ; even a small something eg speedstep, turbo reports might be nice.
I’ve maxed out my CPU and case fans for now; I do see something in $sudo dmesg
Nov 10 19:51:51 dom0 qui-updates: gdk_window_thaw_toplevel_updates: assertion 'window->update_and_descendants_freeze_count > 0' failed
then a 100 of these
Nov 10 20:19:20 dom0 qrexec-policy-daemon: qrexec: whonix.SdwdateStatus+: sys-whonix -> disp6685: allowed to disp6685
which I guess are just pings for the utility, they end about 830pm, then there are no more overnight;
maybe time to disable sys-whonix or go to rc1 - testing repo?
