    arch selection

    I have several systems that are skylake or newer intel processors. There is one system that has haswell dual processors. I have been thinking about using a binary package host. Should I set up a binary host for arch=skylake and then one (separate directory) for arch=haswell? Basically, I want to know how much of a performance difference there is between the Generic_64 and processor family arch builds of various packages.
  2. cannot believe I missed that... thanks!
  3. I have a base CLI installation. I have Xorg that I can run from startx command. After installing lightdm (confifuring /etc/conf.d/xdm to start it and adding rc-update) and mate, I cannot get LightDM to start upon boot or start even after manually using rc-service. I installed SDDM and it will not start either (changed config again). What am I doing wrong?
  4. Thank you for your response! An additional question (not a n00b but only have beginner's knowledge) -- how do I recreate the desktop environment used on the LiveCD on my live system? I like the layout and assume that the toolbar at the bottom is an addon, but don't know where to gather config files, etc.
  5. I am just curious what the desktop environment is that is used on the livecd. I tried to figure it out and I simply cannot determine it.
