I enabled EFI for my VM while using gparted-live-0.22.0-2-i586 and it started working. I also noticed that the disk needed to be added to a SATA controller. It appears that older versions of gParted required EFI to be disabled.

Will I find drivers for my graphics card that will allow me to use it at full performance? It depends. Purely free software drivers like Nouveau might not be able to get all the performance from your hardware, but Nvidia has some proprietary driver for it. BTW, unless you are playing games (or code vector numerical applications for CUDA or OpenCL), ...

You shouldn't be using the live media for this at all. That creates a new in-memory instance of the OS on every boot, with nothing saved from the previous boot. This means that if you write any code and save it, it is being saved to a RAM disk that will go away when you reboot. You could save your changes to some other system and then copy them back on each ...

I have some time trying to install Catalyst 15.3 on Fedora 22. Since the driver is only available in Ubuntu, I decided to try making my own driver (I did not programmed) and after several attempts I made it, I built one driver, who you can install generically on any GNU/Linux distribution. The following instructions are for installing the driver on Fedora ...

My bad, I did compile kernel and the driver but not actually installed it. The solution is: gentoo~ # cd /usr/src/linux gentoo linux # make module_install gentoo linux # cp arch/x86/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-genkernel-x86_64-4.0.5-gentoo gentoo linux # reboot

Some clarifications: nvidia-340xx-utils is not the driver itself, it is utilities for the (if I've understood correctly) proprietary driver which you haven't installed. xf86-video-* is open source video drivers, of which xf86-video-nouveau is the nvidia compatible one. pacman -Ss searches for packages, whereas sudo pacman -S installs them. Use sudo pacman ...

Thanks to @frostschutz, I could measure the write performance in Linux without NCQ feature. The kernel boot parameter libata.force=noncq disabled NCQ completely. Regarding my Seagate 6TB write performance problem, there was no change in speed. Linux still reaches 180 MiB/s. But then I had another idea: The Linux driver does not use transfers of 32 MiB ...

Is there some way for me to tell it during the auto install that any issues that come up I don't care about? To disable the d-i from asking for non-free drivers for networking you can add d-i hw-detect/load_firmware boolean false so it ignores any hardware that needs non-free drivers. # If non-free firmware is needed for the network or other hardware, ...
