I have a Legion Y530 with an 8300H processor and 32 gigs of ram with an intel NVME drive. I was running Pop_OS! and everything ran smoothly as butter. But I wanted to give Clear a try since I like differences that Clear has and it was optimized for Intel, or so I thought, but it doesn’t seem so with my set up.
Upon first boot up, it seemed like it took forever to boot to log in screen. Then when I tried to go to the settings it just hung there. I had multiple things do that until finally, they decided to work. So I restarted my laptop and while bootup was faster it was nowhere near as fast as Pop and sadly Windows even boots faster. I still had a bit of hang on getting into settings, Firefox worked well though. and once settings came up it and were closed the next time I went to it, it was definitely snappier. After letting it do its thing the OS felt good. I then pretty pleased with the way the OS was reacting so then I tried to install some programs via the software store. Maybe it was me being impatient but I tried to install steam let it sit for like 30 seconds and it never got past 0%
I really wanted Clear Linux to be my go-to daily driver for Linux but I just can’t with the way it’s running on my laptop. If anyone has any ideas why it’s acting up on my laptop and how to fix them I would be grateful.
