My PC has died. Nothing to do with GPL, Linux or Windows. It won't get past the RAM check on start up, something has fried either the motherboard or the RAM. i've tried all ram sticks in each slot and no change. It's time to bite the bullet and splash out some cash on a new machine. I can't complain as I reckon that this is at least 14 years old.
Positive observations - Linux Mint Mate ran GPL. Good frame rates etc. Fanatec pedals and steering worked straight out of the box. The only thing I didn't get to work was the H-Shifter (G27). If I can work out how to get this sorted, I reckon that I'll be using Linux in the future.
So, what should I buy for a GPL ONLY machine? I don't want overkill; no need to use a sledge-hammer to crack a walnut. My budget is super-small so sensible ideas only please. I'm happy with 2nd hand or refurbished.
In the meantime, all I can do is watch GPL on Youtube. No more driving for me for a while... The laptop I'm writing this on is ancient so please don't suggest that I use my laptop instead.
Thanks in advance.
UPDATE: My pc lives. I tried the HDD in a different SATA socket and it now works. How weird is that? I guess the mobo is on the way out. It just needs to hang on until Black Friday.
