  • eGPU support on System76 Laptops

    This is the utility I used to configure X11 and this is the utility I used for Wayland. I tinkered with them both a fair amount and they're both pretty good, but neither let's you dock/undock seamlessly. I don't eGPU full-time, but I still have it configured for X11 on Pop!_OS 22.04, so I just connect the eGPU and reboot to use it.

    > Linux is the OS for people who like tinkering.

    This is just flat out wrong. I spend more time waiting for OS X to "upgrade" than I ever do with package management and kernel upgrades in Linux. Ultimately upgrades in Linux are easier, there's no tinkering required. For odd configurations, sure - there may be some tinkering you can do to make things work more how you'd like. For example I have a SFF desktop machine that runs an eGPU. I only want the eGPU for some OpenCV use cases and I run the iGPU for my desktop window manager. Sure, in that case I did have to tweak things a bit, but I actually found an eGPU manager [0] in the process and everything now "just works".

    But printing, window management, software installation, etc are all simple and just as easy (if not more so) than what you've described - "...hand-editing config files". I'd say you are not a Linux user or have not tried any notable Linux distributions in a long time if that's your perspective.

    No, they don't. While, yes, Intel and AMD may have things in their hardware that I don't control - the Linux distributions I use don't have copious amounts of telemetry being fed back to corporations like Apple/Microsoft/Google.

    > But worse - Linux and corporations have both locked down your imagination to the point where you cannot imagine that your experience does not generalise.

    I'm not sure what you're trying to say here but I'd have to say, in my opinion, the comment doesn't seem to make any sense given my long-term experience with Linux on the desktop.
