  1. OpenSUSE LEAP-15.3 installation on Lenovo X1 Carbon Gen-9 – my experience

    by , 05-Oct-2021 at 23:01 (oldcpu's meandering thoughts on Computers, GNU/Linux and openSUSE)
    I recently purchased a Lenovo X1 Carbon 9th generation, with an Intel Core-i7-1165G7, 16GB RAM, 1 TB SSD and a 1920x1200 non-touch display, where I successfully installed openSUSE LEAP-15.3 on this machine.

    My plan is that this will be a long blog entry, with multiple posts over a period of time as I gradually update software associated with this laptop. If I have issues I will post for 'help' elsewhere in this forum.

    But it is possible that I more or less understand what you mean.

    1. You configure NM with a fixed IP address, thus telling it explicitly that you do not want it to use DHCP to get an IP address from any source.
    2. You disconnect the ethernet cable and connect it to another network.

    Mine are always yellow in black. I think it's caused by the DE's or DM's theme. How long they remain could also depend on the theme. What DE or WM and theme are you using?
  4. HDMI -> VGA i xrandr

    Cały czas korzystam ze starego monitora z mniej popularną rozdzielczością. Podręczna ściąga, by ustawić brakującą rozdzielczość przy korzystaniu z przejściówki HDMI na VGA (d-sub).

    Najlepiej na sprzęcie, na którym monitor jest prawidłowo wykrywany sprawdzić co i jak:
    xrandr -q
    Na sprzęcie docelowym, wyliczyć wartości dla xrandr (poniżej wartości dla mojego przypadku):
    cvt 1600 1200 60
    Ustalić, gdzie jest podłączony monitor na docelowym sprzęcie: ...

  5. CyberPower UT1500E UPS for desktop computer running openSUSE LEAP

    I recently purchased a UPS for my desktop computer which is currently running openSUSE LEAP-15.0.

    There is discussion on my deliberations prior to purchasing in this openSUSE thread.

    As noted in the title, the UPS I purchased is the CyberPower UT1500E 1500VA/900W, which I believe should be adequate for my 4-year old core-i7 desktop PC. My nominal plan, after there is a power outage, is to have my PC automatically shutdown within 1 minute of the power outage. ...
