Thanks for posting your solution, but when posting code, styling is not really a major concern. What is paramount is that the code be accurate IMO. I think introducing stylistic changes is only inviting errors from users who don't read carefully or perhaps aren't fluent in English.
hi what i did was make a file in the dir called 10-nvidia.conf
with this in it:
Option "Coolbits" "12"
and i can change my fan settings and was able to use green with envy but as long as i can set at startup my fan to 50-51% i'm good so i do it all the time after boot and login
This is not a permanent (and thus suggested against) change. After the next driver update, this file will be overwritten by the new package file.
Instead, edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ relevant files to add your coolbit settings.
Do so and test. Then change the "Solved" post, so future users don't do the same mistake, please.
I really don't understand.
Is it not the correct solution?
If you think it's not, write your supposed solution to a post and mark it as solution, or I can do it, if the forum configuration stops you from it. Just say it.
There are some forum restrictions set from forum admins, that I cannot change myself.
If you like, you may complain at #feedback category about forum functionality.
Sorry for that.
So I had an issue and supposedly fixed it. So I marked my own reply as a solution.
So far so good.
Now after X time I had the same issue again and noticed that YOU told me that my solution is only partly correct.
With the current discourse (forum) settings / restrictions I as a user have three options when this happens. (or do I miss something?)
I write a new reply with the new solution and mark the response as solution
contra is, that the old reply is still there and could confuse future readers.
I copy the old solution, delete the old reply, create a new reply paste and edit it and mark it again as solution. (Which shifts the whole topic discussion and can lead to a discussion without context)
contra also not so nice since now there is a "Post got deleted by user" message
I ask the staff to please fix the solution with the new one.
contra I have to annoy the staff to do the edit
So whats next time when variable X changes and I need to edit the solution again?
Well... back to the three options I guess?
I did not intend to complain, not at all!
I just noticed I cant edit it and tried my best to keep the forum clean.
This is a protective function against spammers who first post normally and then post advertisements or other things weeks later.
Depending on your Trust Level (TL), the number of days you can do this increases.
The more often you visit the forum and actively participate, the higher the TL.
