      The installer will ask if you wish to add non-free-firmware to sources. Most likely you will need it.   I have a Bookworm installed from the RC, will slowly transition to using it as daily driver. I don't usually do in-place upgrades as I see it as spring cleaning to remove the plethora of tweaks and packages I only installed out of curiosity. 🙄😁   Bullseye is now oldstable and Buster is oldoldstable. From today's Bullseye update: N: Repository 'https://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye InRelease' changed its 'Suite' value from 'st able' to 'oldstable' N: Repository 'https://deb.debian.org/debian-security bullseye-security InRelease' changed its 'Sui te' value from 'stable-security' to 'oldstable-security' N: Repository 'https://deb.debian.org/debian bullseye-updates InRelease' changed its 'Suite' value from 'stable-updates' to 'oldstable-updates'

      Bookworm is now the stable Debian 12 release. The non-free firmware is now in a separate repo so it's important to add non-free-firmware as a separate item in the sources.list file.

      I only have one room in my house that looks even a little like that mess above... it's my living room storage area. It's mostly books (in bins and boxes), but there's also some unused furniture, a TV, my bicycle, shop vacuum, and other miscellaneous items in there. Saves on paying for a storage facility, right?

      First image below is another view of that living room from a different angle...   Keep in mind, every other room in this house (3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen) were just as bad or worse than this living room. My pal Gary had some serious depression issues going on for a decade or so... he hid it VERY well, but the hoarding should have sent off some warning signs to us. The problem was that he was ALWAYS a hoarder to a certain extent. I had known the man for 35+ years before he died in '18.   Second image below is a shot of his master bedroom...

      Installed the drive and formatted it with just one partition for now. It is several GB's smaller than my other 1TB as this shot shows.     Found a program to do some tests on it called KDiskMark which is available on Arch through the extra repo. This is specifically for nvme drives.   https://archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/kdiskmark/   Benchmark-storage-drives-in-linux-with-kdiskmark   https://github.com/JonMagon/KDiskMark     Here are some results for both of my 1TB nvme's. The older A-Data and the newer P14.       An some 32 GB test results       The P14  posts much faster results in RND4K-Q32T1 section and the RND4K-IOPS SECTION. Similar results in the SEQ1M-Q8T1 section. Much Lower results in the RND4K-FUNNYSYMBOLS read section, almost half as low, but the write results for that section are the same.   Of course the drive is only operating at PCIe 3 speeds but to me it looks as though it is somewhat faster than my A-Data though not in all areas. Will it result in slightly or measurably faster gaming ? I'll find out when I transfer my Arch over to it. Though I may do a fresh install of Arch and just use it for gaming and use the A-Data with Arch for daily use.   That is it for now as I am of to hunt down Salamandra in the Witcher Enhanced. Which by the way runs very well on linux.   😎
