Getting more hardware vendors to support Linux

4 hours 36 min ago

Hello all,

For x-mas I built myself a Ryzen 7 1700x PC with the full intention of running Linux on it (the bare metal not a VM). PC Partpicker link =

My issue is that many of the hardware items don't have any Linux support beyond what the Linux community has created. For example, the Asus motherboard comes with a nice suite of utilities/drivers (temperature monitoring, overclocking, etc.) but they are only for Windows 10. MS announced that it will not even support Ryzen on Windows 7. I would love to have the Asus Ai Suite, Asus Real Bench (benchmarking tool), and other motherboard utilities/drivers/goodies as native Linux applications. Sure I installed Windows 10 and the utilities/drivers to verify my new hardware was working properly but that install will be wiped. I already have Manjaro KDE 17.1.1 installed and working properly on it, although I haven't tried anything fancy with the gSkill keyboard. All of my hardware was detected in Manjaro without any issues or extra effort.

I think we need the Linux community to be way more proactive in speaking up and asking for native Linux support. We can't exactly force HW vendors to give us what we want but if paying customers ask/demand/show interest it creates an opportunity for vendors to step-up and answer the call from the market of paying customers or risk losing business to their competitors.

I made a post in the Asus RoG (republic of gamers) forum asking for those juicy utilities/goodies to be ported to Linux. Link to my Asus RoG post =

Asus isn't the only vendor we need support from. Its Intel, AMD, gSkill, EVGA, Thermaltake, Corsair, Razor, etc.

What are your opinions/ideas?

Oracle Linux, just put Intel Microcode back into package?

6 hours 7 min ago

Am I reading this right, they pulled the new "update" microcode_ctl from RH stream and then PUT the code that RH pulled out ... back in? That's what I'm reading here in the changelog right? Just looking for a second/third pair of eyes on this.

Running Oracle Linux btw isn't not my choice.

Getting a job supporting Linux?

11 hours 59 min ago

I started using Linux a few years ago when I got a laptop that shipped with Win8. Ubuntu was the first distro I installed and since then I've used many different ones. I can confidently say that my skills have increased since I began using Linux, to the point where I am very comfortable in the terminal, but I don't really know all the commands I should off the top of my head.

I definitely don't have any problem resolving issues when they arise, but it requires a fair bit of Google and trial/error.

Is there any hope for someone like me to get a full time job supporting Linux? I don't even really know what kind of "support" I want to do, but I would love to work with Linux on a daily basis and get paid for it.

Does anyone have any tips/tricks for me? Any kind of resources where I can learn the basics for what I would need in a professional environment? I would hate to go to an interview (If I even got one) and bomb because I don't know enough.
