I switched from mint to clear linux discovering mint is not as fast as windows for my intel i7. I though it was because of processor optimization stuff because I don’t think windows can be a good OS ever especially a fast one lol. However after switching to CL improvement was visible but the issues started with nvidia drivers. Idk which application it was but I was able to use CUDA on demand in linux mint.
When trying to install I was unsucessful probably because I couldn’t disable a GPU, as a result I ended up being in stuck in the black CLI without GUI. Instead of trying to solve from the cli I just did another clean install but this time I used lts kernel. my pulse audio driver stuff was misconfigured somehow then switched to native kernel again and it was solved but now I have scary red lines on my dmesg output.
An example from dmesg

I use frequent Machine Learning and I want to be able to switch my GPU with Bumblebee/Primus or something.
My Question Is: Should I use clear linux*. I can learn & modify stuff and solve this issues the problem is that I don’t have the time and it feels unstable honestly. If I can contribute for my devices here on clear linux it would become more stable I think, at least the code will be reviewed. Is CL at this stage where I can install/use bumblebee from swupd in the following 3 months or so?
If thats the case I would like to make the effort.
