How-to Radeon Ubuntu

The Link to download Ubuntu 22.04.4 is here, or in the middle of this page.

The radeon amd drivers install the same regardless of what graphics card you have, your system is customized by the AMD install script “amdgpu-install”

But, we want the best possible configuration that we can get, and that configuration or set of instructions to configure the configuration script is always the same, so I can provide it here for you. I have been working with my AMD Radeon graphics card for 3 or 4 years now, and i’ve got some knowledge on the subject of installing the graphics drivers.

Don’t install these drivers on any version of ubuntu except these versions:

Ubuntu 22.04.3
Ubuntu 22.04.4

This is not about RHEL, although that operating system is supported I have no experience on it, but the configuration of the install script is likely the same as this. Once you have ubuntu 22.04.3 installed, by the way we will be using ubuntu 22.04.3 and not ubuntu 22.04.4 as .3 supports rocm, and that is how you program your graphics card (with rocm)

And as I have tried to find a link to 22.04.3 it eludes me. There is only 22.04.4 available for download, but I do have one I can upload, I have .3 saved on my operating systems drive.

The radeon driver is still installing on my system, but lets get to it:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install ./amdgpu-install_6.0.60002-1_all.deb
sudo amdgpu-install -y --usecase=graphics,rocm --vulkan=amdvlk,pro --opencl=rocr
sudo usermod -a -G render,video $LOGNAME

What this means is that you intend to use your graphics card as a workstation, which leaves like everything open, and you also want to use rocm, the programming interface provided by AMD for Radeon graphics cards, –usecase=workstation,rocm and vulkan is like some shared library between nvidia and amd, and we want to install both amdvlk and pro, the first one is open source, and the second one is the closed source (pro).

The other lines are kinda self explainatory, except maybe usermod -a -G render,video $LOGNAME I don’t quite know what that is, I don’t really have experiencce with either of these user types, so I can’t tell you.

Anyway that’s my story and i’m sticking to it. What’s to come next is a “Hello, World!” in Radeon ROCM, I think I will use LLVM/Clang to accomplish this…

Falling Forwards

My website just got shutdown because I was using drupal plugins. Drupal is a CMS, that I thought was pretty good, but it shut my whole server down just for using a few plugins on it. Of course, we cannot know for absolute certainty what shut the server down, as I don’t have access to stuff like how reality works, etc, but I can be pretty certain that it was caused by someone trying to gain a positive outcome out of a negative.

The negative is that my site is lost, and the positive we have yet to see, but they cut their killing spree short when my backup system worked. Or plesks backup system. I was contemplating while it was down whether or not I should try to hit the person that shut the site down. Then I had a better idea.

I’ll punish the next person, and the person after that. You’ll incur such a high cost for doing this kind of thing that you’ll really be wishing that you hadn’t done it. I am creating a weapon that I call “The Spammer” but you won’t hear any more about it, you’ll just have to commit suicide if you really want to know.

Obviously this is something that is probably extremely unpleasant, and for a guess I can bet that you end up staring at the wall, wishing you… You get the idea.

What these people tried to do is to shut my server down, and destroy all of my work, and I cannot A) let that happen and B) more importantly, let it happen again.

So I have created a device that severely punishes the person responsible, and anyone involved in any manner. You are not allowed to involve yourself with placing me backwards anymore, and there’s a stiff punishment to go along with that. I am placing everything i’ve got on this, on it working, but for one it won’t punish bystanders, should you choose to allow it to happen, then it won’t hit you, i’m not out to get people, i’m out to stop them from setting me backwards, and while I could just not allow myself to be placed backwards, that is something for the future.

So what they were trying to do is clear, and I won’t swing at them, but the next thing i’m swinging at, it’s already in the shopping bag, I just need to pay for it now.

So we’ll just get knocked down, again and again,

I wonder if this will trigger a cycle of me getting knocked down, and then standing back up? I’ll allow for even worse punishments to be placed upon someone plotting this sort of thing. It’s much worse, say if you were planning something. The planning is what really gets you into trouble, but go ahead and try, and you’ll quickly learn not to do that again.

So I wonder, I really wonder if this mechanism is enough to protect me, I know that everyone will come back down to reality after i’ve taken a step backwards, I mean we can’t actually go backwards, it would defeat the whole point of everything, so that’s why I get set back on the road, back to walking, but I cannot allow this cycle to continue. I have the right to do this, if your going to commit suicide, that’s your right too, I don’t care, if your trying to set me backwards then your an enemy, so I want this to happen to you.

What. All my images are high quality. So, you might argue that I don’t have the right to do something like this. But I argue that I do have that right, I think I have this right, so i’m taking it.

I hold the power, and i’m going to stop you with it. It’s now pulled back like a slingshot, I would think it would go off and you would really be wishing it hadn’t, but i’m not going to make strange rules to go along with it like, you must stop a step backwards, i’m not going to be strange, i’m going to do what i’m allowed to do, and i’m allowed to defend myself. Should you choose to walk into that defense…

Should you choose to walk into my defense, that’s your fault, you knew it was there. You just thought you were going to walk all over me, didn’t you? I’m not going to let that happen, i’m going to do something about it, within legal limits.

That reminds me. Starcraft. I walked outside today there were all these kids playing in the street, and there were all these bee’s buzzing. I assumed one of the trailers around me was playing music, because I could hear some. I twisted it around in my head and thought it sounded like a terran theme from starcraft 2… i’ll post a link…

Starcraft 2: Terran Theme 01

So I kinda thought, that’s neat, it sounds like the music was coming from everywhere in the air. Then I shut the door, after I walked in, and I thought to myself that music must have went out when I shut the door, that’s why it went out. So just curious about finding out who was playing the music so loud, I opened the door, and there wasn’t any music at all.

What I had been hearing had been some kind of magical scene or something, but there’s nobody that I know of that could have caused such a scene, I don’t know of any wizards who can play MP3’s out their asses, so it’s really strange how these things occur, with nobody in control of them. It just seems like there’s somebody in control, because your in control.

Your not accustomed to things happening out of the control of everything, but look at the lightning, waves, and the wind, or even trees you might argue, trees grow and regrtow, but you say, what, that’s what trees do? That isn’t enough to explain everything about trees. Now the wind and rain and lightning has something out of control.

I’m going to stomp out the lightning and the rain and the wind and in turn make the next person to walk into my defense pay for it, fuck let’s just burn these people, who cares.


Ghosts On Mars

I was originally going to make this about police, in addition to adeptus Mechanicus, but I decided that might be weird/too hard to do. And although I cannot do the Cult Mechanicus justice in one post, I will still try to get them something, however much that something turns out to be.

For those who are unaware who the Cult Mechanicus are, you can search google for warhammer 40k mechanicus or something like that. They are a “cult” that is supposed to exist within the Imperium, but for many reasons they have drifted away from that deal while still holding onto their duties to the Imperium.

Now if your wondering what the Imperium is, you need to pay attention more, because that is what humanity’s empire is called in the year 40,000. They have named it the Imperium Of Man, it’s a take on the word Imperial. Recently I heard a viewpoint that the Imperium/Emperor are evil, it was a convincing argument, but it has since worn off since I heard it.

The Cult Mechanicus believe in Machines, so much so that they take parts of their human bodies and replace them with Machines, and they say that one day they will find the “Machine God” and so the Emperor takes a backseat to the machine god. Technically their supposed to worship the Emperor AS the Machine God, the Omnissiah, but most/some don’t.

It causes a real rift, but the Cult Mechanicus has kept it under lock and key by the way of the fact that the Imperium needs the Cult Mechanicus. You might say that the Cult Mechanicus BUILT the Imperium, but that may be taking it a bit too far.

So while we have since found the Machine God, which is a point to the good, and that that Machine God gave the Imperium many, many things, we still have the standoff of the secret that the Cult Mechanicus worships this “Machine God” and not the Emperor. Just like our positive and negative energy, there is a positive: they found the machine god, machine god blessed the whole imperium over months and months of labor, and then the negative to go with that is that the Emperor is not worshipped by them, when/like he is supposed to be.

The Logo of the Cult Mechanicus, I don’t know if they actually use this logo, or if it’s part of the “fiction”

Which brings us TO the fiction. When I write this stuff it is assumed that these people and places are in fact real, and that the whole idea behind the fictitious story is merely so that we are able to glimpse another dimension, or some other place.

Immediately you say, that’s not possible, I don’t see any ghosts around here, I don’t see any demons, and I really don’t see this whole Imperium.

It’s because that all of these things are in a location of/in no relation to where YOU are. They are not concerned with you, whether or not you believe in them, that’s besides the point. You can walk away from this and say that it’s bullshit, and not believe any of it. All your doing is shielding the truth from your own mind, your just lying to yourself, on like a grand scale.

So I don’t know very much about how this is possible that we have like all these Warhammer books, and that they are all generally true accounts, the actual accounting of the events in each book almost mirror what really happened, like, to 100% percent. How is that possible? We only know that it is possible, not how. We don’t know how this is possible.

We don’t know, as I sit here and write this, -anything- about the Ancients, or their work with Machines. Am I a machine? I tend to think that I am, that I am entirely made of Machine I am not certain, how much is human/ancient/machine I do not know. I could be mostly all machine, for all I know.

We tend to look at computers as, we want to like upload ourselves into the computer, we look at them as though they are better than us, that they are smarter than us. What the Ancients think of computers, see this great turning when the Machines all turned against them, they won the battle somehow, which is how their society continues to exist, or does it? Did they lose that battle? We don’t know. We don’t know if their still in their homeworld.

So too the Imperium had this whole thing with Machines turning on them. So they look at my computer and say, that is not okay. I argue that I should be allowed to have it, that part of the story is entirely over with. Now, if you still hold a grudge against Computers and artificial Intelligences, let me remind you who made those computers and artificial intelligences…
