Performance Quick Check

During the testing of this Linux setup I try to keep an eye on the performance meter (CPU - RAM - SWAP)

In the first week it swapped only once, which happened when I ran a software update.  

Have a look at post#5, there is plenty of memory available. The system so far occupies less than 10GB of disk space.

I checked a couple of 4k videos on Youtube and also HD video streams, works pretty well, few hick-ups did occur though when CPU reached 100%. CPU will normally stay between 40% and 80% utilization during a HiRes video (internet speed is VDSL 100 down / 40 up)

There were no system crashes.

First impression after week 1: Not a bad combo "Chuwi Hi13 and Kubuntu".

Good News on the Suspend / StandBy Issues.

The kernel fix will not make it until 4.16, however there is a temporary fix for the problem:

To prevent the touch screen from falling to sleep forever, we have to unload the driver before the system suspends.  
Download or copy the following script and

1. Put into /lib/systemd/system-sleep/suspend-modules
2. chmod a+x /lib/systemd/system-sleep/suspend-modules

This script will unload any drivers listed in "*.conf" files in the directory "/etc//suspend-modules.d/"
So, now we need to create "/etc/suspend-modules.d/touch.conf" and paste the following lines:


This will unload the goodix touch screen driver and i2C bus driver before suspending and hopefully reload them on wake-up.
[Use "goodix" instead of "goodix_backport" if you didn't recompile the driver]

It looks like my wish list is complete.

It's been a while... so here's a quick update on the development.

The touch screen / goodix issue has been adressed and the bug has been nailed, however the fix didn't make it to the release as of today.

Because the goodix driver needs to be patched with every new release I had blocked kernel updates until just this week.

Reason is the new LTS is out:  Kubuntu 18.04 („Bionic Beaver“)

I have upgraded the system and everything seems to be working / not working just as described above.

To upgrade 17.10.1 to 18.04 just run

do-release-upgrade -d "

I tried to install Android and Linux.

Android works fine, but when I install Ubuntu in a new partition also I created a new EFI partition for Ubuntu, Android started in a loop for boot, this is strange for me because Ubuntu is completely installed in new partitions, any idea or your never did this mix Android + Linux ? thanks
