@bit Note that normally rebuilding an rpm from source (which used to involve installing a "source" rpm) should be an option. For that to work, the source rpm would have to be available, of course.
Not sure if that will help you here or not. But that's a good way to get around dependencies which don't match exactly.
@AndrasDeak How about a tablet?
@AndrasDeak I'm just going by Amazon reviews here, but at least in India, if there is a problem with the Kindle, Amazon will suggest you throw it away and buy a new one. I didn't pay much attention to the details, but I got the impression that if it's within the warranty period they'll offer a discount on the new one. Big whoop.
I don't know if this kind of approach is standard procedure in, say, the US.
@AndrasDeak I don't have anything against ereaders. But some searching suggests that the only ereader easily available here is the Kindle.
I had a French guest once who showed me his ereader, which was also French, and said he didn't think much of the Kindle. I can't remember the manufacturer's name.

@FaheemMitha wasn't that kobo ?
 
@FaheemMitha tablet is a big limited phone, so no
@FaheemMitha I see
 
@Archemar The French guest's ereader? It might have been.
They seem like big international players, whoever they are.
At some point you could buy a Kobe here, based on old listings on internet stores, but apparently not currently.
I don't know about support, though.
Trying to buy electronics in India can often be a frustrating experience.
Hmm, looks like people are departing Freenode.
So, if I drop a Kindle, will it break? And is a screen protector for the Kindle useful?
 
12:52 PM
Yes and yes
I recommend a smart case plus screen protector
Smart because it has a magnet and wakes/sleeps the kindle
 
1:12 PM
And I suppose playing frisbee with the Kindle is out the question.
 
@FaheemMitha that depends on whether you want to continue using it as a frisbee only, or as an ebook reader as well
 
@FaheemMitha too heavy and crappy aerodynamics
 
But it may improve over time -- corners rounding as it hits other objects.
 
1:33 PM
I think I have note on my kindle saying "it is OK to use as frisbee, exepct in India"

@user3342816 obs-studio caused a skype call to lose connection due to what seemed to be a massive CPU usage spike. I had to close obs-studio to be able to continue the skype call. I was using a single window capture source.
@user3342816 This might be useful next time I want to use obs-studio
Just to add, all windows were freezing or experiencing serious lag, so it may have been a low memory availability problem instead of a CPU usage problem.
 
8:00 PM
@bit: That was not good. I do not have any spike when recording. The CPU status goes from about 1.3% to 2.2% (10 fps). But I use the GPU (NVENC)
https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/guides/broadcasting-guide/
RAM usage is also negligible. For recording net meetings I lowered FPS to 10 as I usually do not have use for more on that type of recording. At 60 fps it's around 6% CPU, but RAM usage is still barely noticeable.
Not sure if it can have something to do with Wayland (as I use X11)
But, you could ask on their discord. Likley someone there that have some pointers in regards to Wayland. And at least OBS in general.
 
8:55 PM
urgh, terdon edited my answer to change "parenthesis" to "parentheses". I had to do a double take to even notice what the change was. And then went to check a dictionary. And then went to check how many times I've made that mistake before :D oh dear...
 
9:13 PM
parenthesis is a thesis you write about your parents 5 years after you moved from home.

@ilkkachu one of the less crucial mistakes one can make
