See nothing special, so it looks ok for me. Works on baremetal (non UEFI) AMD Ryzen5 3600, Mainboard MSI B450M Mortar Max with prop. nvidia driver from rpmfusion.org (GTX980 card) and Gnome-Desktop. Regression test passed (paxtest, selinux-dac-controls and libhugetlbfs skipped).

Works for me,
The enabled Default and the Performance tests pass OK. AMD 965, x86_64 work station, RAID-1, Plasma DE, X-server, nVidia GTX 650 (GK107) + nVidia RPM's from Negativo17 (440.82)

works for me: desktop 16GB Intel i7-3770 CPU & laptop 8GB Intel i5-2520M CPU Lenovo T420 (the desktop ran the performance test in under 10 minutes, but the laptop took about 108 minutes -- more than 10 times longer!) - all using the Mate Desktop Environment

I suspect that there must be something trivial in the kernel that causes such a wild variation the desktop always takes about ten minutes..

IMPORTANT QUESTION: Why does the time taken for the laptop rang fromn less than 10 (ten) minutes to over 100 (hundred) minutes?
