comment How do I correctly apply thermal paste on a laptop CPU with a small surface area?
yeah, i should state that spreading thermal paste is one of those topics which gets way more discussion that it needs. In my experience at least, sky high temps has never once been solved by one pasting technique over anouther.

comment How do I correctly apply thermal paste on a laptop CPU with a small surface area?
my comment was in general, for any thermal paste i've ever done. My laptops have intels, though, which run at around 50 degrees - not entirely idle. I don't make the layer very thick, but two little dots of paste, i dunno. - Not convinced its enough.

i do the credit card option, i dunno. Personally that pea sized amount doesn't look nearly enough for my liking. I generally put a layer as thin as i can, but across the whole die edge to edge.

comment Good way to resolve dependencies for .rpm installation
Yeah, that's why I said I couldn't speak for jre/jdk. I've never needed to do what you're trying here, which suggests to me that there's a better way than swapping one for another. Off the top of my head I don't know enough java fu to advise though
