Gamers 4.6

Postby saiyuki » Fri Sep 11, 2015 5:46 am

Hi all. I seem to have found a problem with Gamers 4.6 version. From a fresh install and after selecting System/Preferences/Appearance, and then closing the Appearance window, i see the process is still running (mate-appearance-properties) in the system process window. I have core 3 (quad core cpu) running at 100%. If i repeat the same i get another core running at 100%. Do it 4 times and i have 4 cores running at 100%.

The only way to Stop it from running is to end each process in turn which then returns my quad to me. The quad runs at 100% all the time until i stop it.

As i said this is from a default install so i haven't added anything -apart from updating the system.

Regards

Ok so now that I installed the amd drivers the system will not boot I get stuck on a screen with writing. I think the display manager?

Any way is there a way for me to get thumbos on linux mint as that is the only OS I can access? Just in case I may need to go back to 4.2.

Hi. No-go i'm afraid. after following your fix and selecting Appearance i now get 2 mate-appearance-properties entries showing - 1 core=100%, the other sleeping. I close the Apperance screen and only the sleeping entry dissapears. I select Appearance again and i get 3 mate-appearance-properties appear - 2 cores=100% and 1 sleeping. Close the Appearance screen and only the sleeping entry dissapears leaving 2xcores at 100%.

Hi. I have an Intel i5 cpu.

I'm going forego the gamer edition and grab a 'normal' copy of Ultimate. It was only curiosity that led me to try the gamers edition ;)

Thanks for your input though 8-)

Hi. Yes I used the Intel micro-code. Actually after cleaning the system (as per instructions), and using synaptic to install the Intel code, it did say that it was going to re-install the Intel micro-code, so it was included in the original install anyway. ;)

You must realize TheeMahn is way ahead of things. Prolly the kind of guy Apple, Redhat and Intel would hire.

Adding programs to make a CPU run better is a regressive process something which Linus does not subscribe.
The Linux Device Driver maintainer(Greg Kroah Hartman) had once said.... Intel adds code and bug fixes long before the chip leaves the foundry.
Intel is the only company that has production ready code before hardware gets released; for LINUX.

You dont need to add any programs to make the CPU run better.

The bug can be because of:
1> TheeMahn is way ahead is breaking and then making stuff. A one man army with 10 fingers doing the work of 100 fingers.
2> As a result a long lost overlooked or untested software bug has arisen. Can even be related to the Gnome 2.xx series.
3> Gnome 2.x was funded by corporations. Mate is Not funded but an open source project keeping the old template alive...
.... dont get me wrong I love mate.

The Q6600 is an old cpu and does not require any new code unless they are multithreaded or OpenCL optimizations directly applied to the
batch that affects all CPU's.

Your program behaviour is very familiar and used to happen to me too...its a runaway process. You can kill it by using the kill or killall command:

Code: Select all
kill -9 <process ID>

OR
Code: Select all
killall  mate-appearance-properties


The AMD firmware drivers are a quick fix for running graphics drivers where catalyst does not work(for later APU's and graphics), and catalyst does not work with many distributions.... AMD does not do enough work to get catalyst working out of box.
