What does this mean for my old laptop?

$ sudo mhwd-gpu --check

Above gives no output

$ mhwd-gpu --status
:: status

Not much, and you can ignore any mhwd status as mhwd is looking for the proper symlink (if used) of the *.conf if generated trough mhwd.
Since you use the kernel driver for the iGPU …

there is no conf …
Do you experience issues with your system?

sorry for the really late reply. i forgot about this thread.

anways, i’m not entirely sure what issues to look here. nothing that i found to be linked to hardware (my current gripe is with networkmanager not being able to connect to a weird wifi). i’m going to guess that there’s no issue to be fixed and i can just continue smooth sailing.
