With the recent release of WINE 3.2, how does Skyrim: Special Edition run?:

I’d appreciate it if someone could please test this for me.

I don’t yet run Linux, but would like to transition some day. To do that, my favorite games need to run well!

The latest AppDB results are from v3.0-rc3/Dec 29 2017, and were not all that encouraging, only receiving a ‘Bronze’ rating. The same hardware under Windows achieved a much more playable experience.

Thanks!

[UPDATE] I need some help with a complex project, pihole, vpn, server setup:

Original Post Here

So I tried to use my RT-AC66U to encrypt all my traffic and it was an absolute shit show, was averaging about 3Mbs with full load on the router, it was terrible. I disabled it and tried using my RT-AC66U as a VPN server, and that was even worse. I don’t understand why these routers have these features if they don’t have the power to execute the tasks.
I thought about buying an RT-AC88U, but I figured that it still wouldn’t have enough horse power to do what I want (and it’s expensive).
I ended up buying a relatively inexpensive machine on eBay.
Lenovo ThinkCentre M72e i5-3550 with 8GB RAM, also got a 120GB HP SSD (the one that was on sale recently) and an additional PCIE GigaBit NIC card.
Figured with the extra RAM and higher performance CPU I could run a virtualized server on top of the router.

I tried to follow this guide The Ars guide to building a Linux router from scratch on ArsTechnica. I followed it religiously, except for the testing at the end and I opted to go with Ubuntu Server 17.10 since Ubuntu 16.04 wouldn’t install on this machine (it would hang).

So I got the machine up and running, with everything configured as described per the guide. I connected the WAN to my modem, and connected my LAN to my other PC, but Windows 10 is giving me an error about it not being configured correctly and not being able to obtain an IP. I tried inserting the older router in the middle (which is my end goal to serving up wifi), hoping that would help somehow, but of course it didn’t and it was stupid to think it would. I know the PCIE GigaBit NIC works, I tested it under Windows 7 and during the install I tested to see if it worked properly.

I wanted to do a Linux distro so I could install pi-hole side-by-side and so I could install either KVM/QEMU or VirtualBox with CLI tools so I could spin up a headless VM server for Radicale, TinyRSS, and a file server.

Is there a better guide to building a home brew Linux router?

Please help me to put Linux on this low-spec computer.:

I have a fairly new but low spec. all-in-one computer. It’s effectively a tablet but with no touch screen. It has two USB ports and I have a Logitech wireless kb/mouse combo in one. It’s currently running Win 10 but it’s rather slow, only having 4GB RAM so I thought I’d look into putting a lightweight linux on it. Possibly Mint since I run it on my laptop, but I might start with puppy or similar. It’s only used for web browsing and office apps.
I’ve tried to boot from a known bootable USB drive but it simply refuses to.
Some pictures of the BIOS screens here, that last one I even tried the boot override option (Kingston Data Traveller is the USB drive) but it just blinks and goes back to that screen.

How can I get the thing to boot from the USB drive? That particular one has UBCD installed on it, using this tool but I assume I’ll have the same issues with whatever distro I use.

Option to make Ubuntu bootable live-usb stop resetting everything when I turn off?:

Hi guys, new to Linux and tried out an Ubuntu live-usb recently and loved it. Super cool being able to plug it in different computers when I move around.

Is there any way I can top it resetting each time? I’d like to install updates, have it remember my settings/bookmarks, install some browser extensions etc so when I boot into it again I haven’t lost everything.

My main purpose is to have a bit more security as I travel around, and less worry about viruses etc. Just for basic internet/email

Thanks.

I think I accidentally downloaded two versions of Ubuntu (Ubuntu 16.04 and Ubuntu 17.10). I only want to keep Ubuntu 17.10, but I can’t tell which disk partition has that version and which disk partition has a different version. Help!:

Guys, I’m really bloody confused about this, to be quite honest. Does anyone have any idea what I did wrong/how I’m supposed to fix this?
