How to reduce tearing, or eliminate it, from Fedora (31)?
It is annoying me now because I am using less Windows for entertainment. Videos from YouTube, Netflix and CrunchyRoll have noticeable tearing. And now that I got my ongoing game working, it became very annoying not just because of the tearing but also because of the FPS which is worse than on Windows by at least 10FPS. Even when I get something like 50-55FPS it feels weird. I think must be Frame Times.
Why setting coolbits 12,8 or 4 makes my system hangs at boot?
I tried to set it once or twice but my system never boots when I do that and my Nvidia Setting doesn’t have too much to mess with. GWE also requires some level of coolbits (if that is right) to enable some settings.
My machine is not a good one:
- Laptop Aspire VX5-591G;
- OS: Fedora 31 ThirtyOne;
- Kernel: x86_64 Linux 5.4.18-200.fc31.x86_64;
- Resolution: 1920x1080;
- DE: GNOME;
- WM: GNOME Shell (Xorg);
- CPU: Intel Core i5-7300HQ @ 4x 3.5GHz;
- GPU: NVIDIA GP107M [GeForce GTX 1050 Mobile];
- Driver: NVIDIA from RPMFusion v440.59;
How can I improve the experience on this modest system?
When I’m going to run Steam, Brave or Vivaldi (both I try to use for Crunchroll or Netflix), I right click choose it to run with the dedicated GPU.
I also, before gaming, put the NVIDIA PowerMizer to “Prefer Maximum Performance” and stop the TLP service (which I installed recently, but I am not seeing significant difference on battery usage).
