Distro Fever IX: intricacies

I am back at Garuda Linux again, after a small detour.
This time I am playing with their KDE “Dragonized” Plasma edition.

One of the Garuda benefits is that it is quite easy to switch between
different Linux kernels.

  • zen is their KDE default kernel
  • cacule works with another scheduler
  • znver2 is compiled for a modern Ryzen CPU

I have just clocked darktable using each of the three kernels
(kernel/with openCL/without openCL):

cacule 1.741 4.369
zen    1.641 3.984
znver2 1.629 3.939

I believe I can trim it a bit more…

Have fun!
