  1. Re: Ubuntu 15.10 on Dell Xps 15 9550 new Infinity display (i7 6gen 16gbr UHD 4k touch

    @Annihil, what you're doing seems correct and the same as what a few of us have done to install kernel 4.3. Maybe an update since then has broken it... after testing 4.3 I immediately went back to...
  2. Re: Ubuntu 15.10 on Dell Xps 15 9550 new Infinity display (i7 6gen 16gbr UHD 4k touch

    @rvanderwerf, I'm still on kernel 4.2 and have never had any problems with the wifi and use 5GHz regularly. To help diagnose your problem, try installing "wavemon" and run "sudo wavemon" using F3 to...
  3. Re: Ubuntu 15.10 on Dell Xps 15 9550 new Infinity display (i7 6gen 16gbr UHD 4k touch

    Does anyone know what "AHCI" or "RAID" actually means in the bios? I've always assumed that Dell's RAID was just AHCI plus some useless features that cause problems. My system detects the drive as a...

  5. Re: Ubuntu 15.10 on Dell Xps 15 9550 new Infinity display (i7 6gen 16gbr UHD 4k touch

    @paralleo on that link the person claims that the newer kernel has "Intel Skylake enabled by default". Any idea what that means? Are you noticing any other performance or battery life improvements?
  6. Re: Ubuntu 15.10 on Dell Xps 15 9550 new Infinity display (i7 6gen 16gbr UHD 4k touch

    @parallelo: Nice work! Weird that .efi disappeared. Hopefully this was do to a stray cosmic ray and not a nasty bug. Before I saw you fixed it, I was going to mention that I have Dell SupportAssist...
  7. Re: Ubuntu 15.10 on Dell Xps 15 9550 new Infinity display (i7 6gen 16gbr UHD 4k touch

    @shamil.si

    Confirm that suspend doesn't work on mine either.

    Reboot works perfectly on mine. Did you change any drive settings in the bios? What version of bios are you on? From memory I think...
  8. Re: Ubuntu 15.10 on Dell Xps 15 9550 new Infinity display (i7 6gen 16gbr UHD 4k touch

    VGA dongle worked perfectly. Makes sense since the driver is completely separate from the Nvidia/Intel stack and should be very mature and stable.

    I have the largest battery (84wh). Hopefully...
  9. Re: Ubuntu 15.10 on Dell Xps 15 9550 new Infinity display (i7 6gen 16gbr UHD 4k touch

    I doubt 14.03 LTS will work. The main problems were with the new fancy GPU not having good nouveau compatibility and the new fancy Intel raid not displaying NVME hard drive. So an older OS release...
  10. Re: Ubuntu 15.10 on Dell Xps 15 9550 new Infinity display (i7 6gen 16gbr UHD 4k touch

    @astroman: wifi card works well with good performance and range. The wifi connection rate seems to be reported incorrectly. External monitor support has been flaky and isn't always available. This is...
  11. Re: Ubuntu 15.10 on Dell Xps 15 9550 new Infinity display (i7 6gen 16gbr UHD 4k touch

    Haven't heard of anyone else doing this so I took the risk and purchased the Dell XPS 15 (9550) with the FHD 1920x1080 matt display, Intel Skylake i7-6700HQ, 512GB PCIe SSD, 16GB DDR4, 84Wh battery....

    [all variants] Re: Nuforce Udac USB DAC (soundcard)

    Using Ubuntu 11.04 and 11.10 the uDAC 2 works fine... mostly. Running for a few hours in an old AMD 5400+ rig works fine. Running on my newer sandy bridge Intel i5-2500K on GIGABYTE GA-H67MA-UD2H-B3...
