That's what the Bible says God did with the world during the Flood.

And the world and humanity never had had any problems since. :D

New news! I can now hibernate just by touching the power button. (And it even wakes up properly.)

But it's even better than that. I have a cable coming out the back of my computer, leading to a pushbutton, that's paralleled across my power button proper. So I can boot up AND hibernate just by pushing the external button (which is easier to get to than the power button itself). How nice!

I still don't know about those samples and the brightness control. (I'm tempted to quit while I'm ahead.) I can always go back to wearing sunglasses.

Thanks to Steve and cfb.

I'm marking this thread PARTLY SOLVED because I can hibernate and wake up with no problems now, but I'm supposed to download the "samples" which I can't figure out to do.

If anyone can tell me how to download the samples, or at least tell me what they're for, please tell me.

Too bad these forums don't have any way to rate or downvote a post...

How do you manage to get past the "empty gas tank" problem? :-?

A good mocking usually serves the purpose. I'm hoping that post was actually being sarcastic.

I would guess that the CUDA samples are tests to see if CUDA is working.

Does this brightness-control thingamajig work for you?

http://mxrepo.com/mx/testrepo/pool/test ... ontroller/

It just has a few simple python and x11 dependencies, so should install fine in Stretch from the deb:
Code: Select all
apt install <name-of-deb-file>

No. The only way to reduce the brightness is to wear sunglasses (no joke -- I'm wearing sunglasses now).

But do I need the samples? According to the wiki, I'm supposed to download the samples and test that they're present by adjusting the brightness.

Or should I just give up and call it finished?
