Does the M1 Mac mini support dual 27″ Thunderbolt Displays?

As per this question, M1 powered MacBooks support only a single 27″ Thunderbolt Display as follows:
enter image description here

However, would an M1 Mac mini support dual 27″ Thunderbolt Displays if connect as follows?

enter image description here

If they cannot be daisy chained via Thunderbolt 1 would a second Thunderbolt Adapter perhaps change things if used as follows:

I’ve seen how the M1 can be connected up to 6x displays in total using Display Link. However, I’m specifically interested in using the 2x 27″ Thunderbolt displays I already have.

If you’ve got this working with an Mac mini, please share your experience. Perhaps even more than 2x 27″ Thunderbolt displays could work?

dual boot – Setting swap file as default results in “Permission denied”

I have been following the tutorial on Linuxize on how to create a swap file however when I try to permanently keep the swap file on using /swapfile swap swap defaults 0 0 it comes back saying “Permission denied”. I am running a dual-boot of ubuntudde and pop! os and there is only one user on each os, both of which are mine. I have tried to do this on both operating systems which didn’t work either, though they both share a /home directory so this shouldn’t be an issue as far as I am aware. What do I need to do to remove the permission? Also why would it be there in the first place as I have set no restrictions?

partitioning – Extra efi partition created in dual boot linux install

I made a partition on my hdd and used it for dual boot endeavorOS on Windows10. I created a EFI partition during the install, but it seems it is not being used. Below is my disk info. The efi parition is in /dev/sda1, and I created /dev/sd6 and mounted it on /boot/efi. It only has 300k used, so I assume it is empty. Somehow its type is “Microsoft basic data”(??), Can I delete it?

ddr3 – Mixing Dual Channel RAM – what to look out for?

I have two DDR3 G.Skill 4GB 800Mhz sticks in my computer. I want to put 8GB more.

I can’t find any more 800Mhz sticks so I’ll have to with current ones, 1333, 1600, so on. I know the new sticks will be underclocked to 800Mhz.

What do I need to look out for in terms of compability? Same brand? Same clock (for the new 2 sticks), what else? What is REALLY important and what is only recommended?

computer vision – How to correct distortion from stitching dual camera to estimate homography

I am trying to distort the image obtained from two cameras that generate a stitching image. Unfortunately, I do not have access to the cameras and I would like to know what could be the best way to apply to correct the image and get the lines below to be straight.

enter image description here

The next step I am trying to do is to calculate the homography with respect to the field. And the only thing that I find is that: transformation between the image field and the template field plane has to be done through a linear transformation.

dual boot – Expanding Ubuntu partition

For some reason Ubuntu decided not to utilize the 100GB I cleared for it, and installed itself with only 28GB of space. I only discovered this now, after it started bugging me about running out of space.

I’ve tried googling my issue, but it appears that it’s a somewhat dangerous process that heavily depends on the exact situation, so I thought I’d be better off asking you guys for help.

I have two physical drives, one for Windows only and another for storage/Ubuntu. The partitions on the second drive looks like this.

I hope you guys can guide me through this.

abstract algebra – Are split-complex and dual numbers considered integral domains? If no, why?

From available definition of integral domain I concluded that it is a ring where we can divide by almost all elements, but not all. There are non-zero elements by which we cannot divide.

This seems being satisfied by the both numerical systems. So, they should be integral domains.

Dell XPS 15 9500 Dual Boot Ubuntu 20.04 & Windows 10 (Seperate SSD)

I am a simple user, please be cautious.

I have recently bought Dell XPS 15 9500 and successfully did dual boot.
I wanted to share the steps I took before I forgot, in case it might help someone and it was much easier than I thought.
I have seen some things like ‘reinstall windows’ or change something in Registry Editor which does not exist in my case.

grub2 – Dual boot Ubuntu 20 with Windows 10 but always boot with Windows 10

I am using a Lenovo P700 ThinkStation. I have already disabled fast start, no secure boot, already use bcdedit /set bootmgr with GRUBX64.EFI, already use boot repair via a USB harddisk with ubuntu “Try Ubuntu” option. Nothing works.
Are there any other way to do it?

display – Dock Dual Thunderbolt 2 Laptops with dual hdmi out / dual screen sharing?

I have a 2013 Macbook pro and a 2015 Macbook air. The pro has a busted screen but works fine otherwise, it has two Thunderbolt 2 jacks. The air is fully functional, it has one Thunderbolt 2 jack.

I like to make electronic music. I have some stuff on one Mac and some on the other. I have two displays I want to use. One is a older LG flatron with hdmi input, the other is a 4k uhd smart tv. I also own a 2tb time capsule.

In my head I’m thinking of a setup with the pro kinda always docked, maybe closed if possible, and always using the two displays, and a Bluetooth keyboard and trackpad controlling it or both, then I could just add the Air to the docking station whenever I wanted to and share files, monitors. I was thinking I could use one for like VST and plug ins and the other for my DAW host software. That way I could get the most computing power possible. Not sure if that’s possible.

For a minute I was looking into DANTE or AVB but then that wouldn’t solve my dual display needs.

I thought there has to be a dock that I can hook up both laptops to via Thunderbolt 2 and share data at high speed, with 2 hdmi outputs that I can also share between the computers. But so far I’m not finding anything. All I can find are dual monitor switches for mini display or Thunderbolt 3 / USB 3.1 docks with dual display but no dual hdmi. (I don’t need to power the screens with hdmi).

So, I’m needing some help! I would like the added ports that a dock offers, I would like to quickly file share from laptop to laptop, and i would like to be able to, if possible, share dual external screens for editing and etc.
Does anyone know how i can accomplish this?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
