Welcome to /tech/ THE RULES: 1. Please spoiler all porn and gore 2. Talk about something actually related to /tech/nology 3. Have fun! Required reading http://cryptome.org/2012/07/gent-forum-spies.htm Beginner Info If you would like to try out GNU/Linux because of https://itvision.altervista.org/why-windows-10-sucks.html, you can do one of the following: 0) Install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine (preferably using KVM or Oracle VirtualBox for newfriends). 1) Use a live image and to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything (keep in mind that the performance of live distros might be very different than from distro that was booted from your HDD, as most distros are loaded in RAM and don't include the proprietary drivers for NVIDIA GPUs or up-to-date Mesa libraries in their isos). 2) Dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows (make sure to install Windows first, as it can "replace" GRUB or other UNIX bootloaders, and troubleshooting of Windows replacing your bootloader of choice might be painful for people that just started learning about the Linux kernel) 3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux (you really shouldn't do this, if you don't know what you're putting yourself into, see: https://itvision.altervista.org/why.linux.is.not.ready.for.the.desktop.current.html).

Arch Linux Eliteism Anonymous 12/31/2019 (Tue) 23:30:03 No.1221 [Reply]
Does anyone know why the Arch community is eliteist? Out of all communities, they are the most eletist and toxic, even gentoo isn't that bad, despite similarities.
11 posts omitted.
As a member of said toxic eliteist community, I can confidantly say that it is the package manager and the install process. God I fucking love pacman
>>1221 There is a flaw to Linux altogether and that is that it never really adopted a "plug and play" mindset for the user experience and that its very much a "read the handbook to learn how it works" OS. And because of this there is the common mistake in teaching Linux of making people belief that using Linux is just like switching from an IPhone to an Android phone and that all they is just the right distro and they are good to go just like on a Windows machine. Linux requires a learning period and a willingness to learn it before it can be used as a substitute for Windows or MacOS. Conveying that to people is more important than what distro they try out first. On top of that I think a good beginner book for Linux is mandatory as searching the Internet for answers to questions can suck ass and in some cases Internet isn't always accessible when installing a new system, especially for people who have just one computer.
>>3045 I'm not a huge faggot when it comes to operating systems, but I really love gentoo. Portage is so fucking nice, USE flags are the best idea any package manager has ever implemented. I hope CPU power continues to increase enough to the point that normal machines can compile software without perceptible delays, though even on my 8 year old laptop compilation isn't that bad unless it's some bloated piece of shit garbage software like firefox.
>>3050 Do you ever want to keep an old version of a package, because the updated version isn't working? How would you set that up with pacman?
>>3227 Pacman installs packages compressed then decompresses them to install them. Everything you have ever installed as a package is stored on the pc. The directory tars are stored is the variable called cacheDIR or someting in /etc/pacman.conf. The default is is /var/pacman/pkg or something. Also op is a literal faggot, i have never mat a elitist arch user but i fucking met at least 5 autist obsessed with the elitist arch user boogeyman, op is one of them.

Reminder that (((Bryan Lunduke))) is a jew!
>>3016 Massive butthurt going on in that pic. Fuck Lunduke though
This guy is speedrunning life. He went from normal guy to Trumptard to libtard, all in less than 2 years.
>>2997 >$CURRENT_YEAR >Trusting a(n ex-) M$ employee.
>>3016 Those two graphs show no correlation with jews infiltrators and the founding of the country whatsoever. I know the fake-news pavlov technique being used is trying to conflate the two though. There very definitely was a point when globalist kikes began to have a very evil influence over the nation, but it certainly wasn't at it's inception. rather it was much closer to around 1880 or so, again your fake-news chart notwithstanding. Certainly by the time of the writing of The International Jew ~c.1920 they were a major malignancy after just 40 years or so.

looking books that talks about making system like this specifically https://youtu.be/8c264xk15o4 [Open] or something liek sega arcade stuffs (power drift, space harrier, air rescue, aqua jack so on etc) especially the physics model and how stuff sticks and not fall thru the floors despite the gaps between things and maybe lack of polygon meshes? perhaps the behind the scene/making of logic... hopefully includes several model/solutions of troubleshooting the same thing of why and whynots Thank you!
