i wanted to use some 32-bit pre-built software linked with the 32-bit
version of libc6.
i could get that library under ubuntu using 'apt install libc6:i386'.
is there any way to get that library and other such 32-bit stuff under
"clear linux os"?
i would like to put-in a formal request for supporting installation to
optane disks usually found built-in newer generation laptops.
ubuntu supports it, so do fedora, redhat, centos and oracle linux.
i am already experiencing phenomenal performance gains even on a
regular hard disk, can only salivate thinking about what working off
optane would deliver.
hope supporting installation to optane disks isn't going to violate
some policy at intel.
After having fiddled, diddled and messed (and reinstalled innumerable
times) up Clear Linux OS Desktop for a week, all I can call it is "a
good toy project" by Intel to "show-off" it's hardware's capabilities.
Does not support the full range of desktop hardware due to weird policy
Not even installable on Intel's own Optane disks (NVME) which aren't
usable along with a HDD due to lack of support by the Linux community at
I believe the Clear Linux OS Desktop edition team at Intel must be
desperately working hard to support all the weird bloatware that comes
part-and-parcel with GNOME, maybe switching to a saner, more stable,
rarely broken desktop environment would put less pressure on the team to
support bloatware and direct their attention toward more critical issues
like fixing the package management system and the crazy concept of
building bundles for everything.
Does not support a large section of vital non-open software used by a
wide set of users on the desktop front. For example; Google Chrome,
Microsoft Visual Studio Code, etc.
In closing, nice effort, but if Intel is really serious about Clear
Linux OS, I would suggest that Intel veer clearly away from the desktop
front, it's simply too much of thankless work, and focus instead on
producing a really high-performant, reliable server system with full
support for all sorts of server hardware and commercial tools, from
Intel itself and others (AdaCore, IBM Db2, Microsoft SQL Server, etc.).
I am moving back to my trusted Ubuntu Desktop, it's way more usable, and
if the Canonical developers lean towards applying the kind of
performance enhancements Intel developers could manage to in Clear Linux
OS, Ubuntu would become unbeatable.
