Envy Script

Filed under
Linux

Have you ever wanted an easy way to install your Nvidia or Ati card in your Ubuntu or Debian(Etch) box? Well the answer is in http://albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html and it's called Envy.
The process installing Nvidia or Ati drivers is very fast..only a few clicks plus you don't have to remove any previous drivers. It does it all.

From http://albertomilone.com :

Envy

It is an application (written in Python and PyGTK) which automates the installation of both the ATI and the Nvidia proprietary driver on Ubuntu (Dapper and Edgy)*. Envy downloads the driver which your graphic card model needs, installs all the compilers, etc., sets up the Xserver configuration file for you and makes sure that the driver integrates nicely with Ubuntu's restricted modules.

* Now on Feisty and Debian Etch

Well done mr Alberto Smile

Ryzen 7 2700X CPUFreq Scaling Governor Benchmarks On Ubuntu Linux

With this week's Ryzen 5 2600X + Ryzen 7 2700X benchmarks some thought the CPUFreq scaling driver or rather its governors may have been limiting the performance of these Zen+ CPUs, so I ran some additional benchmarks this weekend. Those launch-day Ryzen 5 2600X / Ryzen 7 2700X Ubuntu Linux benchmarks were using the "performance" governor, but some have alleged that the performance governor may now actually hurt AMD systems... Ondemand, of course, is the default CPUFreq governor on Ubuntu and most other Linux distributions. Some also have said the "schedutil" governor that makes use of the kernel's scheduler utilization data may do better on AMD. So I ran some extra benchmarks while changing between CPUFreq's ondemand (default), performance (normally the best for performance, and what was used in our CPU tests), schedutil (the newest option), and powersave (if you really just care about conserving power).
