In a desperate attempt to get this /tech/ board going, Lets have a "Questions That Don't Deserve their own thread" thread. I'll try to answer anything I can, and I'm sure there are other people here with more know-how than me, who can help as well. Conveniently, That leads to the first question: Does anyone here have any experience with the transmission-daemon? I've gotten everything set-up for my local server, but I'd like to move all of my currently running torrents to the daemon without adding each torrent file or magnet individually. Is there any way to do this? or a place where currently running torrents are stored?

I use the one on the right, it doesn't require non-free software, headless at least. You can also use it to flash Libreboot too.

any recommendation from olimex? im trying to build a small touchscreen device to read mangos and shitpost when i want to be comfy on my bed.
Use https://linux-sunxi.org/Main_Page to read more about Allwinner boards.

I use the OLinuXino A20 Micro, with an USB wifi adapter (ath9k_htc driver), which is supported by Debian https://wiki.debian.org/InstallingDebianOn/Allwinner
I don't know about touchscreen and X but it apparently can be done https://www.olimex.com/wiki/How_to_use_15_inch_touchscreens.

If you care you can completely encrypt disk and boot using https://linux-sunxi.org/FEL/USBBoot, which needs another computer to store your initrd and vmlinuz or keep an unencrypted /boot.

I would upgrade to the A64 or A33 but they have no SATA port. Also all of them seem to be unnafected by spectre and meltdown and use a Mali GPU instead of a PowerVR one.

Oh, and be sure to get the UART adapter.

Someone just gave me an Ipad Air(1st gen Wifi model) and asked me to get rid of the code lock on it, after a bit of research I figured out that my only three options were replacing a memory chip on the board to change the serial number, buy a new logic board with that isn't locked to an iCloud account or use a DNS bypass during activation but that has less functionality for use.

Does anyone know where the jailbreaking community for Apple devices is on the net? Or any experience and advice to give me on this topic?

Depends on what kind of pdfs really, if it's mostly black and white text then find a cheap ereader that you can root and install a decent OS on it.

Otherwise I'd go with an older phablet that can run /e/ or LineageOS.

Has IPFS made any progress in the last 6 months or are they still dragging their feet?
Isn't LineageOS just a reskin of CyanogenMod then? And Replicant can be considered the same with non free code removed.

As long as they host their own packages it should be considered similar to the distro situation in the GNU/Linux world. The only reason why I'd recommend anything but official Android is to use a pure version of mPDF without any bloat in the OS.

Im actually waiting for that shit to launch and see if it gets the nufsf seal of approval, also the pinetab and pinephone is coming out, wonder how shitty they are going to be.
It's clearly stated that the wifi doesn't work on their page and they have links to libre wifi adapters that you can plug in through the USB port. With one that's small enough and by soldering a micro USB port on it you'd have a decent solution.

Or you can just reinstall it with the nonfree wifi code included. I was going to go with Replicant but decided against it when I saw how much trouble that was going to be, also they don't support the Lima driver for the Mali GPU yet so it's doing software rendering.

It is available for LineageOS but it's not currently supported as it's so old.
In fact all that Replicant is the FSF taking LineageOS and removing nonfree code.
Digital Foundry makes a good case for going back to CRT monitors for gaming. I personally want one for my old PS2 because PS2 games look like shit on LCDs.

Excuse the nigger in the video but the nignog is right.
They're misguided. What they want is any small monitor with low resolution and high refresh rate. The only monitor they could find though was a CRT. All small, low-res monitors are shitty cheap ones with ghosting and muted colors and all monitors with a high refresh rate are huge 4K LCDs where you can choose to either see stretched pixels or no rendering details.

PS2 games look like shit regardless. The best a CRT can do is fuel your nostalgia so you accept that it all looks like crap. Be sure to get an old 15" TV.
Or trash your PS2 and play on PCSX2 instead. It's a tradeoff between "can't see shit" and "can see it's shit".
They aren't wrong. My high refresh rate LCD is really good but even one of my cheapo CRTs will always beat it when it comes to blacks, blur, and refresh rates. I wish they'd stop telling normalfags about CRTs because the prices just keep going up and up with so many of them jumping on the retro bandwagon. The only saving grace is maybe the fad will get enough normalfags behind it that someone will start producing new CRTs again. Old CRTs are in short supply now and they all have a limited life span. At some point there won't be any parts around to keep current ones going.

I wish there were more 16:10 CRTs in circulation. I haven't been able to source one locally and I'm not going to pay to have something like that shipped in. Right now I have a bunch of CRT monitors I saved from the trash. I keep a 24 inch CRT hooked up to my main PC as an extra monitor. It's nice to have it in the mix for when I run older games. I'm trying to find something CRT around the same size to mount above it right now.
>The only saving grace is maybe the fad will get enough normalfags behind it that someone will start producing new CRTs again.
We can dream anon, but we both know this isn't happening why even live anymore
I apologize in advance for bothering you with a troubleshooting inquiry, but it's just this shit makes zero sense to me. It's a problem with my internet connection that so far I have no idea where it's coming from and no clue as to how to deal with it. Here's what I have observed in the few days I've been dealing with it:
>My connection peters out almost instantly, except not quite. To elaborate, I can't access any new webpages through my browser except sometimes Google and YouTube (I tested it)
>signal strength display shows no problems, appears "Limited" very infrequently
>resetting my router and flushing the DNS hasn't yielded results besides brief moments of false hope
>According to my browser it's a time-out error, though sometimes it says it can't resolve DNS
>For some reason I can't fathom, it has a more or less specific schedule. My connection always shits the bed at around 7 pm and comes back at around midnight. This is by far the most baffling thing about it.
What do you think the problem might be? What can I do to find the root of the problem and solve it once and for all?
Does it work just fine over a wired ethernet connection?
What does your the web interface of your router say about your internet connection? Have you made sure the connection itself works?
If so, what does it say about the dns?
God damn it I forgot to mention that, but yes. It works like a charm.

Zero problem on the former, so it should work on paper. As for the latter, I suspect it's a DNS issue but I'm not sure where to look.
Maybe try wireshark and see if the DNS requests get a response, or TCP connections for that matter.

If it's a DNS issue in your router, you should get results from using a VPN, using an alternate DNS provider like jewgle's or using tor.
Signal strength is not the only relevant measurement, the noise floor also affect throughput but WLAN adapters usually cannot measure the noise floor.
So it is possible that some other device that is only being used in that time interval is adding noise enough to make your connection unusable. Considering the time, it's likely a neighbor using another wireless network after work. Does the affected time change on weekends?
Try scanning for other networks then changing your channel to something far away from the other networks. Also try moving your WAP.
The fact that he can access google/youtube implies it might be on the ISP's end. 7pm-midnight would be prime time for most locations since people are off work and watching streaming services. Google keeps servers at most ISPs that mirror their content. If he can access youtube and google but nothing else it probably means he's only able to access content mirrored locally at the ISP and nothing is going beyond that hop.

Next time it does this try running a trace route or pinging something that isn't a google server and see what happens.
Could also try a full factory reset of the router. And do a network scan of surrounding networks and choose an unused channel.
Seagate or Western Digital?
Whatever is cheaper.

In those cases I usually just type the title or write something else entirely because Going Bananas with Burritos.pdf will not help me when I want to find that paper on van Laarhoven lenses.

Too bad extracting the title with a browser extension won't work half the time either, because the actual document title is often Microsoft Word or empty.
At least sometimes copying stuff without the first and last letter works.

I've been running only Linux (Debian) for a while now, but I've got a spare hard drive kicking around and I've been thinking I'll install Win7 on it for times when Wine isn't working out.
A while ago I had been set up to dual boot between Windows and Linux, but that was starting with a Windows install and adding Linux on top. I've heard it takes some fiddling to get things working in the other direction, and on top of that I don't know what catches there might be for having it on a different drive. Should I just physically unplug all my drives except the one I'm installing to, install, reconnect the drives, and set boot priority in UEFI/BIOS? Do I need to do anything with grub?

Pardon my ignorance needing to ask such a basic question. I've never actually installed Windows before at all, never mind in a dual boot setup.
every successful multiboot i've ever managed 10+by now i imagine starts with installing Wangblows first, as it stomps anything else on the box.
>I've heard it takes some fiddling to get things working in the other direction
If some expert knows a different way, let them enlighten us all. This is what's worked for me repeatedly.
>as it stomps anything else on the box.
That's what I gathered, which is why my thought was that I should install it on a separate drive and leave the others all physically disconnected from everything, so even the bootloader can't possibly be touched.
My concern is whether it might still mess with anything once I plug those drives back in afterwards.
>My concern is whether it might still mess with anything once I plug those drives back in afterwards.
by 'it' i'm assuming you mean the copy of wangblows. it will certainly scan and catalog (and very likely send all the hashes back up to the mothership for upload to the 5-eyes (((agencies)))). but i can't recall 'it' actually damaging anything on an external. yes, unplugging is a good idea during all installations, even the linux ones anon.
Only on MBR. Windows assumes normal EFI boot on a GPT formatted drive and you can install OS in any order you choose.

t. installed Linux first on GPT, works on my machine
Spoonfeed us a walkthrough?
Just keep in mind that the common Windows 7 loader everyone uses to activate it doesn't work if you install it in UEFI mode.
Just set up the partitions properly when installing your first system. Windows will to it automatically, obviously. If it's Linux, you can just let the distro autopartition for UEFI if it can. I had some trouble doing it manually at first, because you have to have a small unallocated sector at the very start of the drive and then a correctly formatted EFI partition right after. When the first OS is in place, even if you install Windows afterwards it won't erase your boot sector and will instead just add its own option alongside. Worst case scenario, you have to launch a system off USB and run grub-update once.

Didn't know that. Are you talking about Daz Loader?
How would you handle encryption on a linux home NAS? It would be best if it worked per user so the user's container will be mounted on access and dismounted when the user disconnects from the NAS. I imagine this to be a pain in the ass for backups and copy on write, it would probably hard or impossible to incrementally backup without decrypting everything in the process.
if i download shit from yt with youtube-dl can i get jewed?
define (((get jewed))). it's simply a downloader. the developer keeps it agile to constantly stay up to date with jewgle's intentional kikery intended to defeat it, but otherwise it's basically just a means to download the file to your machine. you do exactly the same when you watch a video on kiketube.
when i watch videos on yt there are ads and (((scripts))), do youtube-dl run these scripts and give up my privacy/anonymity? can it leak my location if i donwload over tor?>>485
i don't know the intricacies of all the hoops youtube-dl has to jump through today to retrieve a kiketube video anon. but one thing i feel i can guarantee you is that downloading a video using youtube-dl is more secure and private than doing so in a browswer. and sure, you should be able to torify ytdl connections, why not?
One other thing. Using youtube-dl with invidious at least puts one more layer between you and (((Jewgle))) anon.
There are options to use proxies built into youtube-dl. Very useful for archiving in case youtube cuts you off for sucking up too much of their bandwidth or for getting around region blocking.

I haven't watched anything on the youtube site in years thanks to my media players being able to stream their videos and youtube-dl letting me batch download everything I want and watch while offline.

No it doesn't as the video is still hosted on youtube's servers. All youtube-dl does is look at the video ID in the URL so using invidious makes no difference at all. If that site wasn't a placebo Google would have shut them out of using their service by now like they did with NicoNico awhile back.
i usually use the --proxy option but it doesn't work with invidious .onion address, i feel like it's somehow bypassing the proxy.

Btw, invidious got hacked recently.
youtube-dl cannot execute any Javascript because it has no interpreter for it. You can open up the python file from your install and look. What it does is parses the HTML page you get from opening the video URL and gets video information from its tags. In the specific case of Youtube, it also looks for specific <script> areas and uses regex to get media URLs from it. Last time I checked, this was all it did.
PhantomJS is a optional dependency, in some cases it might execute something. But yeah, i should take a look on the source even though it looks like gibberish for me
I see. I stand corrected anons.

To put it plainly, I'm a paranoid fuck and have reason to suspect that my computer's being or has been tampered with while I'm away. I'm looking for ways to detect this as well as ways to prevent it.

I guess this extends to making sure my online activities can't be viewed by those also connected to the network if at all possible, because while they're my friends that doesn't essentially mean I have 100% faith in them nor have I any reason to.

Are there any good, lightweight web browsers for Linux Mint? I have a 1GB machine that I'd like to use to browse some websites, doesn't matter if they look like shit so long as they actually load.
Just try different ones anon and see what you like. I'd say have a look at this one:

BTW, Mint is a good platform, I like it. But tbh it's not really very lightweight for a small box. I think if you tried something like Manjaro using XFCE instead you'd have a smoother experience.
log your network activity using tcpdump or something. You learn that there are things that can't be unseen by the network. The best you can do is encrypt everything.

Try some headless browser, there are lots of them like >>522

my question is pretty simple, how can DNS cause a error 502? it resolves but cause this error, why?
If the domain name is resolved into an address, then the DNS didn't generate any error.
502 is likely the HTTP error code and any code starting with 5 is a server error.
NetSurf (http://www.netsurf-browser.org/) or lynx/links? Or perhaps Gnu/Emacs?
i thought that too, but the weidest thing is that the only way i found to get rid of this error was changing DNS servers.
Maybe the previous DNS server was redirecting you to a different address than the expected one.
It's nothing strange for this to happen. Probably it was caused by some errors during the propagation of the updated record or the internal cache misbehaved somehow.
probably, now its fixed, thx anyways

If you're on a new machine as in, one with recent hardware then Win7 is certain to encounter driver issues what with it being less than 4 months from EOL, best install gentoo or some other free as in freedom operating system and have Wangblows run in a VM with GPU passthrough if it's really needed.

Why are you trying to push gentoo on to newbies? Do you want him to hate you or something? Why would you do such a thing?
Get Debian, Arch or Ubuntu and then de-bloat those. Join a few chat places (IRC, retroshare, zeronet forums, whatever) that are made to help new linux users and go from there.

First delete duplicates, rmlint is handy, then make a script to compare filenames, if they are equal append an string to the filename, when done just `ls *string-appended*`.

No, the Manjaro developers are incompetent, and it doesn't make sense to grab the packages from a rolling-release distro when you are building a stable distro (this practice leads inevitably to delayed upgrades.)
Also, Arch (or the AUR) isn't a killer feature. And actually, n00bs shouldn't even use AUR as the AUR "packages" are just shell scripts (in other words, the packages basically gets access to your computer because, if you are new to Gnu/Linux, then it's very unlikely that you understand shell scripts.)

>I'm not really comfortable switching to linux right away
It's better to dual-boot windows and Linux. You can try Linux with Virtual Box without touching your HDD/SSD (pls note that Virtual Box has worse performance than you would actually have)

this tbh
Also, MS backported at least some of the Botnet 10 spyware to Windows 7, and Windows was never very private anyway.
Is there a reason why not to use btrfs filesystem? I notice that the swapfile feature is now compatible with btrfs as long I'm using linux kernel >= 5.0. I kinda want the easy way to do backup with snapshot though. As for btrfs stability concern, I'm not using RAID or anything like that.

Btw that gpg Sakaki guide looks very neat indeed except in my part, I need to get an additional package for gpg hooks configuration. Thanks for the gentoo link anon.
If I was starting now I'd probably only run linux in a virtual box and not dual-boot. Dual-booting is annoying as fuck.
/throd. been doing this for years. good advice.
most distros offer an iso but not a tarball, how can i "install" any distro so i can chroot on them?
>offer an iso but not a tarball
that's a good thing, so that you don't have to go through the compiling process of the tarball.
>how can i "install" any distro so i can chroot on them?
You need to to boot the iso first by turning it into bootable distro in your thumb drive or burn it into empty cdrom disk. In Windows, there's program call rufus where you can do all that. After booting, depends on what kind of distro you've downloaded. The generous distro developer would include installer inside them. If there's no installer, you have to do the installation process manually.
ok, i will elaborate, i want to have the filesystem of any distro after installation in a subdirectory where i can chroot to, this way i dont need a vm for each distro, a tarball is basically the filesystem compressed, is there a method to get the filesystem of any distro or i will have to install from the iso and copy the filesystem to my subdirectory?>>656
No, a chroot is an operation that changes the apparent root directory that is from another root installed distro for your current root system. You cannot chroot into a tarball filesystem because that's not how it works. If you thinking of installing multiple distro in a same partition so that you can chroot onto them, there's a user that actually manage to adopt that kind of setup https://askubuntu.com/questions/405735/installing-multiple-linux-distros-in-a-single-partition

I personally wouldn't recommend doing so because it makes everything more complicated.
This is more of an ideaguy question, but how would you handle linking to tags in an imageboard?

Say threads can have tags, and you can browse/search threads by tag. So you need to be able to link to a tag in the current board, on a different board, and across all boards.

For example:
##sometag links to 'sometag' on the current board
###sometag links to 'sometag' on all boards
###/tech/sometag links to 'sometag' on /tech/ only

Would that be too inconsistent? Maybe you'd use ###/*/sometag to search across all boards, that would seem more consistent. But you'd probably want to use that so often that it would be beneficial to use just ###sometag and think of a different way to link to tag on a board. For example ###sometag@board or something.
Been stuck with windows 7 and seemingly there's alot of fuss about when they drop support for it, it would be a frenzy feed for hackers. Is this just normalfags blowing this out of proportions or is it this bad? If so is the LTSC version of win10 good enough?

Well, there's two types of 'tags' in the context of your question, Satan.
1) JSON tags. These are common to all imageboards, and don't care what kind of media, etc. are involved.
For example:
"board_type" : "lynxchan",
"comment_tag" : "message",
"file_ext_tag" : "",
"file_hash_tag" : "",
"file_name_tag" : "path",
"file_orig_tag" : "originalName",
"files_arr_tag" : "files",
"last_bump_tag" : "lastBump",
"media_dir_tag" : "",
"op_replies_tag" : "posts",
"site_name" : "julay.world",
"subject_tag" : "subject",
"thread_id_tag" : "threadId"

These are tags that will occur in one variation or another in any imageboard. This example happens to be julay.world and the lynxchan software it relies on. Other boards will use other specifics for these same tags, but the general tag is the same. For example, 8kun and it's openib variant of vichan:
"board_type" : "openib",
"comment_tag" : "com",
"file_ext_tag" : "ext",
"file_hash_tag" : "md5",
"file_name_tag" : "tim",
"file_orig_tag" : "filename",
"files_arr_tag" : "extra_files",
"last_bump_tag" : "last_modified",
"media_dir_tag" : "file_store",
"op_replies_tag" : "posts",
"site_name" : "8kun.net",
"subject_tag" : "sub",
"thread_id_tag" : "no"

Same 13 general tags, different specifics right?

2) Content tags. These are entirely separate from JSON file tags, and require humans in general to make them. For, example "My Favorite Bathtime Gurgles", or "Funny Cat Gifs".

Anyone know a way to host/get a mumble server without exposing your IP? I've seen some sites that advertise free mumble servers, but are those really secure? I'd like to rid myself of botnet VOIP services.
>host [...] without exposing your IP
This is by design impossible.
People need an address to connect to your server, so no matter what you do an address must be known to everyone.
Even if you use a different address assigned to a machine that then forwards to the real server, that machine still has to know the address of the server.
Similarily, any client will have its address be publically known (to the server) because the server needs to know where to send data.
I figured as much. So are free mumble hosting services safe to use? Like https://www.imumble.nl/. I only need to have a handful of people (4-5 at most) in it so I'm not concerned with bandwidth, just security.
>by design impossible
normally, and on clearnet.
abnormally, you can use CloudFlare or similar. In this case visitors resolve your domain to a CloudFlare IP, they connect, and CloudFlare talks separately with your server, without exposing your IP. This is how CloudFlare actually protects anyone from DDOS attacks: the attackers don't know the IP to attack, and have to attack CloudFlare, which has the money to deal with the attacks.
CloudFlare probably isn't a good option for mumble though, unless it's voice-over-HTTPS.
and of course on the darknet you can get the exact same IP hiding through e.g. Tor hidden services, where connections to an .onion address are onion-routed to your real server, and real IPs are hidden in both directions.
again probably an annoyance for mumble hosting.
But if you want communications without exposing your IP, there are ways depending on your adversary.
>hide from analytics companies
use TorBrowser. analytics companies care about more than your IP, and TorBrowser tries a lot harder to secure you from that extra stuff.
>untrustworthy admins/mods
1. if the site doesn't block tor somehow, use TorBrowser or Brave Browser's built in tor support, or any browser with tor.
2. get some cheap VPSes and proxy requests through them. This gives you a number of identities to work with, but it's a hassle to recycle them (hosting companies will not go along with "hi I want a new IP for NO REASON").
3. use an unturstworthy VPN? even if it's a scam, if your main concern is site admins, as long as they proxy your traffic you're getting what you want.

Does True/Veracrypt in-place encryption work offline or online and can it be paused and resumed like bitlocker?
If you're on Windows, use bitlocker.
If you're on Linux, use LUKS+AES.
I'm not sure why you would want or need Veracrypt.
This post is fucking radioactive holy shit.
I'm sorry, I had assumed that was a Windows user. Use LUKS+AES like everyone else.

Are there any decent laptops still being made? I need a new one and don't want to buy something used.
There are a lot of problems buying laptops new. They aren't like standard PC's where individual parts can easily be replaced, fixed, or upgraded. So you're essentially buying something that's doomed to melt itself into hardware failure in ~5 years. Whereas at least if you buy used old shitty thinkpads it feels less like you've been scammed since they're so disposable and you can get another for $100-$200. If money isn't an issue I guess you can get one of those purism laptops, though they have absolute shit hardware for their price. But if you don't care about privacy or security I'd just go watch some jewtube videos about the best value laptop currently on the market. No one here is going to know enough about or recommend new modern laptops considering how anti-/tech/ culture they often are with the botnet and nu-features they have.

Here's some video that seems to cover most of the bases, and it's very recent.
go with System76.
+ coreboot
+ disabled intel shit
+ tends to work with BSD
+ expandable & maintainable
+ sometimes pretty stylish (last generation 17" Oryx Pro is a beaut)
+ good support
+ Pop_OS! ain't bad
- generic (their manufacturer sells the same shit for less to other people)
- you'll probably need the support (always had a high rate of failures with them)
- they have the disgusting diversity-hugging-each-other logo on the windows key
- you could've just bought a refurbished ThinkPad
- Dell XPS is pretty nice as well
- HP laptops always work well with Linux for me and are the most beautiful stuff on the market
system76 desktops look alright as well.
Just wait for the PPC notebook to come out, it should only take another 3-4 years. Less if the OpenPOWER Foundation throws some money at it to promote the ISA.
Should I just get a thinkpad then? I don't care about ultra thin shit I just want something I can run OpenBSD/Gentoo on. I need a laptop for fixing shit when I'm away from home and my last one melted itself.

I need it now not in 10 years.
Depends on what you want to do with it like I said. If you want to do basic shit and don't need powerful hardware the consensus among most people is to deal hunt on ebay for a used thinkpad. If you're asking about new thinkpads? Compared to other modern laptops they're kind of just the same, except with better keyboards. Though I've never owned a modern laptop and that's just me regurgitating what I've heard people say in jewtube videos. I don't really feel comfortable giving direct recommendations to someone spending hundreds of dollars, so since you're hardly explaining the daily use case I'd say just do your own research on various products.
Is there a place where a beginner can learn to code, but its made fun? Or at the very least, a very good tutorialTrying to learn Java so bare with me
Why are there literally ZERO decent TKL membrane keyboards on the market? It's insane. The one I happened to find for a good price on ebay ended up being pretty shit with inconsistent key presses and keys getting stuck. It's virtually impossible to find a well made, wired, TKL membrane keyboard. Meanwhile it's also virtually impossible to find a reasonably priced MX Clear switch board, which is the closest you can get to a membrane. This is some fucking bullshit.

Currently the Radeon 5700 XT is the highest end from AMD. Make sure you get one without a blower cooler, as there's issues with noise and heat. I've seen some good deals at Micro Center, where dual-fan 5700 XTs cost around $360. If you want to save even more money, get a 5700 with a BIOS switch like the Sapphire Pulse or the Powercolor Red Dragon, and then flash a 5700 XT BIOS for higher performance.

Are there any decent ways to host simple html/CSS/js content for free?

I want to make my own "homepage" of sorts where I can put shit into, but hosting my own server is not viable and I don't want to throw around my personal information through paying. All I really need is a static file host that allows directly viewing the files (instead of downloading them), and the ability to modify them. All the "free website" websites want to shove some template editor at you, and I don't want that shit, I want to edit the raw html or at the very minimum inject css/javascript into it (since with javascript you can just replace the whole page with anything if you want so it can serve the desired effect).
Also before these get mentioned; Github captcha is broken so I can't make an account, Gitlab uses google captcha so I can't make an account, Netlify wants me to use some botnet email instead of my own so I can't make an account.
don't use SJWhub anyway, anon. Use gitgud.io or gitlab.com
Gitgud doesn't allow hosting pages from what I can tell so it's not valid in this context.
The only limitations are that a single file can't be larget than 20MB or something and you have a maximum of 50000 hits per day. You can use either their online file manager or FTP to get your files to your website, and I dont think they even have a template editor. There's also no ads or trackers injected into your site.
Uses google captcha. I'm starting to remember why I don't use anything on the internet anymore besides imageboards.
I wanna start writing down a tabletop RPG system, but I am not sure what to use. My initial idea was to use org-mode, but, despite what the org-mode fanboys say, it seems to be not so good for literate writing, due to linewrap fuckery (I know that can be disabled, it's just that the default behaviour is there for a reason). Now, I'm thinking about using QOwnNotes to make the draft, then maybe use Scribus to lay it down nicely once I'm done.
Can anyone convince me org-mode can be comfier than a WYSIWYG program? I know org-mode is way more powerful, but I'm not sure I need all of that.
surge.sh maybe?
I haven't used that but apparently the entire process of signing up and uploading your website works completely throught the command line, so I doubt they have google captcha
Looks very interesting. It requires bloat.js because for some reason it's too hard to make even a command line program for uploading files without it nowadays, but I'm willing to deal with that if the program works as easily as advertised.
How about neocities.org? The guy who runs spyware.neocities.org seems to have custom html.
I fiddled around with surge.sh for a bit and it does indeed seem to be just as easy as advertised. Just navigate to a folder with your shit in it, and then call surge. It asks you to make an account, which only requires email and password and nothing else. It suggests a random subdomain by default, but you can change it to whatever.
Visit my amazing page: http://tsun.surge.sh/

Only problem is that it doesn't seem to allow modifying an individual file, so you either reupload literally everything every time or nothing.

Uses google captcha. I'd rather give up than ever allow it to run on my computer.

Which Thinkpad is good for casual use? Just planning to use it for tinkering in Linux, playing XP/Vista tier games like elona+ and fortune summoners, and writing docs.

Also any linux distro recommendations? I was looking towards manjaro or opensuse, are any of those easy to deal with.
>are any of those easy to deal with.
If you're a linux newb, there is only one answer to that question: Ubuntu.

It's geared explicitly for newfags and has by far the largest community around it. But in a similar fashion to Wangblows it's also loaded with botnet by the company packaging it Canonical. So plan to move on to something better like Manjaro then Gentoo within six months anon.
If you're going for something newer, I'd recommend a Dell Latitude over a thinkpad. I've had a few of the newer ones and struggled with driver issues the whole time, while I've never had any issues out of the box with a Dell.
Not a total newbie, but the laptop I had previously was garbage and kept shutting down and acting weird for some reason. Too cheap of am laptop to buy a new battery, might as well buy a new one.

Thanks for the info. Does the Dell laptop have the same or similar build quality to older thinkpads? And I wasn't planning to get the new macbook look a like thinkpads, I was planning to get the older refurbished and used models like the T or X series.
Latitudes are the enterprise model, so good build quality, easy to repair, and can be found cheap on eBay. The new-ish thinkpads that I had were a T440 and A-something, both had plenty of driver issues on Linux.
Wow that's pretty weird. Aren't thinkpads renowned for their compatibility with most distros?
The IBM thinkpads are, but those are over a decade old at this point.
>the laptop I had previously was garbage and kept shutting down and acting weird for some reason
Was it a hardware problem?
My current laptop would do something like that: when it first happened it was something like 3 or 4 months after I bought it so I still had the warranty; I brought it to the shop where I bought it so they could fix it or something. They told me it was the disk that broke, but after they changed it it still happened after a couple of weeks.
It turns out the problem was that the disk controller is not part of the motherboard, but it's a separate piece connected to the motherboard with an extremely small connector; needless to say, the tiniest movement would "unalign" (for a lack of a better term) the connector, essentially disconnecting the disk from the motherboard.
The solution was to swap the CD reader with the HDD.
I really don't know what it was, but it was most likely a hardware problem. Didn't care anyways since its a cheap laptop from Walmart that my mother gave to me. Processor only ran at 1.6 GHz max.

Can you explain the issue with google captcha? I personally dont like it but is there security/tracking issues? All i know is that is has its own specific google scripts
Maybe its similar to proxychains but that term is also new to me and ill have to look it up
It's collecting data about you every time you use it. It's like the facebook like button where if you don't block it you're basically handing them your entire browser history. It's also used to train AI, that's why it asks you to identify things like signs.
You become another stat in google analytics and train their self driving car AI with photos from their global spy network aka google streetview.
Oh and remember the old recaptcha with 2 words? Those were taken from scanned books and you were digitising them for sale on google books.

A few rabdom skewed letters is all a captcha needs.
>website starts loading
>it's a solid white square
What's the point of a dark theme if websites are blindingly white when loading? How can I make websites not blindingly white when loading on chromium?
Besides what other anons said, the purpose (at least on the surface) of google captcha is to detect whether you're a bot or not. It's one of the most likely surfaces for analyzing all kinds of information about you and connecting it to other information that google knows about you. Since you're most likely registering an account, it will also be able to read all the information in the registration form including your email and username (unless you create new random ones just for that form). In the case of making a post in imageboards, it can possibly read what you're about to post.

But primarily it's become a principle. I don't really think "I don't want to be tracked by this" anymore, I just refuse to take part in a giant global spying corporation injecting itself into everything. If you put that shit into your website then I'm not using your website, period.
Forgot to mention that google is evil in more ways than spying. Censoring information/videos and manipulating search results is something they do all the time.

They also push leftist agendas through censorship and more visibly through the google logo header. They often put insignificant nonwhites into the google logo image, yet neglect much more significant accomplishments by whites. And there was that recent-ish space related event where the google header had almost no white people in it even though basically everyone related to it was white. Youtube logo that sticks to the top of the screen often has all kinds of gay pride flags and shit in it as well. Youtubers in general have had issues for a long time with unresponsive and unethical behavior by google, and again preferring to put nonwhites and women into their yearly recap videos instead of people/events that were much bigger but involved white people.

Nobody will hire you for javascript. Now a bloated flavor of the month javascript framework though, as long as you can shit out anything with it you're good to go.
So javashit became javashit modular edition?
It's not even javascript anymore.
"Modern" frameworks have shit like their own DSL or some junk declarative statements to do their things.
People using pure javascript (even jQuery!) are either people working on the framework themselves or on some ancient piece of code.

It's the same as when vch.moe required javascript, I won't use it until they turn it off.

Nowadays with a completely different audience comprising almost entirely of phone posters I'm not confident that they'll turn it off.

How do you use ffprobe/ffmpeg to detect if a video is playable on the web? What should you be looking for? Should you whitelist properties or blacklist them?
>to detect if a video is playable on the web?
You're better off trying opening it with a web browser.
I'm trying to filter uploads from people into a server.
Then stick to a selected few combination of audio/video encodings.
For example refuse anything but VP8+Vorbis (the old webm combination.)
If you look at the output of ffprobe you'll see it labels some fields: just use grep on the labels and then examine the resulting string for the actual encoding.
It's not really foolproof but it works.
>stick to a selected few combination of audio/video encodings.
That's gay. I want to do the exact opposite; support as many videos as possible for most browsers. I just don't know what I should be aiming for with that goal in mind, what formats and settings I should be filtering by.
>I just don't know what I should be aiming for with that goal in mind, what formats and settings I should be filtering by.
The only thing you can do is set a whitelist and expand it as browsers support more formats.
Well then, let me rephrase: right now at this moment when I need to add things into a whitelist, I have no idea what to add into it.
Couldn't you just run something like umatrix, and limit everything besides what makes the page work? How much access does javascript get when you allow it?

In Windows command prompt, how do you enter the directory that a shortcut (.lnk) points to?

This is literally impossible to google. If you try to cd into it, it won't work. If you try to cd into it without the extension, it also won't work. If you just type 'shortcut.lnk', it opens an explorer window.
Short answer, what you want is impossible because .lnk files aren't any kind of link it's stupid windows fuckery.
God dammit. There has to be some easier way to go to common folders than typing them manually or creating separate command prompts.
Thanks for the answer though, I hate that "shortcut" also means keyboard shortcuts and every other word is even more generic so all the search results are useless.
Fuck, right as I typed this out I realized I could just make a bat file with the cd command. That works.

Meta question: does /tech/ consider Libbie its mascot? I know she wasn't made for this board, but following the LibreOffice disaster she's gained some affinity here. I've just never heard it explicitly said one way or the other, so I'd like to get some opinions on the matter.

I doubt anyone would recommend VPN's they personally use since it means they're IP's are more likely to get banned on imageboards and what not. I would just apply some general rules like if it has a massive marketing budget it should probably be avoided, so things like PIA or NordVPN are probably bad ideas.

i was watching my internet traffic through nethogs and just see a suspicious outgoing request. Checked it and shit is Google. Why would my debian linux i3wm computer sends data to Google?
>>1166 Plenty of modern internet-related (though usually dealing with the web) software regularily sends data to servers effectively owned by Google, e.g. through some 3rd party service that relies on some other service offered by Google. Usually this is advertised as "gathering data to improve the software", but ultimately they are just sending a bunch of data to Google. You should check each and every one of the programs you have installed, so you know which one is connecting to that address. It's the only way to know for sure; as far as we know it might even be your terminal emulator of choice. This also includes your init system, because if you happened to forget, systemd has a built-in DNS resolver which uses Google's services to resolve records.

Should I switch from manjaro, are the devs that bad, I often hear they are but does anyone have examples. I use arch on my laptop but I've avoided using it on my main desktop in-case I break something. Messed around with mint but I didn't want to try updating my kernal for ryzen 3000 cpu support (temps etc) because I'll shit it up. I often wonder if rolling release is that great because you seem to be at the will of random updates to everything but it does mean you never have to preform large updates every 6 months and I find it easier than debain & apt. Has anyone been running a rolling release distro for a long time say 5-6 years - is it worth it long term ?
>>1236 I no expert on Linux, but the most consistent distro I've used is MX Linux. Manjaro has been nothing but headaches with random issues that I couldn't even begin to understand or troubleshoot.
>>1238 Thanks I'll check out MX, I'm no advanced arch user but if you ever decided to try rolling release again, doing the arch install process and using it on my laptop helped me better understand and fix a lot of the problems I've have had with manjaro.
Never used manjaro but the differences between distros is minimal, that is to say instead of changing Operating Systems all the time you should focus on learning how to fix what is broken. I suggest doing an LFS install as a learning experience. As far as the rolling release question, I would reccomend gentoo as its kind of the best of both worlds, you can be on stable but easily install newer versions of packages if you need some new feature or whatever. Doing this on Debian distros causes apt to shit itself overtime iirc.
>>1241 >differences between distros is minimal The differences are huge in some respects, but when it comes to breaking, yes, they're all similar. Ubuntu is a pretty good choice for learning how to fix stuff because the internet is overflowing with ubuntu noobs asking how to fix their shit and very patient people giving the right answers, if not deprecated. >>1236 >Has anyone been running a rolling release distro for a long time Yes, but it's a server, so I don't have drivers and graphics to fuck up.

What's a good way to sanitize text so that it can't contain invisible characters or any weird zalgo shit, but still allows foreign text like Japanese?
>>1281 1. Do not question the optimizer. 2. Do not even ask why it copies the stack pointer to esi and uses that register further on instead of the actual sp. Or do ask that, but try to answer that yourself by checking out what those other functions do with the sp. Maybe the calling convention of F2940C0 requires the caller to reserve some stack space above the return address. Or maybe it doesn't and maybe the optimizer just couldn't think of a good way to rearrange the instructions to make 4 pushes. Or maybe it has good reason for this arrangement because of better cache hit ratio, pipelining, speculative execution, parallel execution... but then see 1. Do ask yourself why you're not using ghidra for what is basically static analysis. If that code is somewhat new, ghidra will not only produce readable C code but even help you reconstruct classes and methods, so you can check how many and which arguments the static virtual method [[eax]+3A0] really takes.

Anyone know how to force streaming videos through Tor? I'd love to be able to do something like "torsocks mpv <URL>" but it throws errors relating to name resolution because maybe torsocks routes DNS through Tor and that only supports TCP not UDP.
>>1288 >Is there an alternative Within platforms, yes. Faceberg, instaberg, tiktok, imgur, twatter etc are full of uploaded videos. The concept of sharing dumb videos within a platform is so successful it even killed the vine. But when people look for videos, they will search within jewtube and jewtube only (and pornhub). Vimeo, dailymotion, wikileaks, bitchute, they're all niches for stuff that doesn't fit on jewtube and people who don't fit there either. Vimeo, you're still in my bookmarks, but you've faded from browser history. :'( So with the internet happening on a couple dozen sites, do you want to upload a video to the big archive where everyone can see it but never will, or do you want to upload it to "social" media where it's seen by all your 12 (((friends))) once and never again? >>1293 >yeah it was using the SP in there I mean did it leave the sp at a different address or did it change values in those 8 bytes of "reserved" space? Most functions don't behave like that, but I've seen a couple of times where it was on the caller to prepare the callee's stack or clean it up. Not that it would make a difference really, because it's still "because optimizer", but it would ease my mind as to why that function starts using ESI. Anyways good luck, hackerman. >>1294 torsocks does handle DNS correctly, but mpv probably can't handle the proxy: https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/issues/3373 So use privoxy, use the web player that comes with the stream or come back with pcap files of you trying to open a stream.
>>1288 Related to this, are there any non-botnet alternatives to Google Captcha? Some websites, such as bitchute, would work well enough without 3rd party javascript, but the registration on these sites always requires google captcha. I'm not that bothered by occasionally having to use google captcha for downloading files and such things, but I certainly do not want to create an account if that account is tied to google. If there is an alternative, then one could try to lobby the site owners to change the captcha system, so that the web would be more usable without botnet.

I installed Void Linux on a Chromebook and I have everything mostly working with the exception of one problem: for some reason, certain music players and applications (mpv, vlc) play audio 2x fast, quiet, and extremely distorted when playing compressed formats (mp3, ogg).

Apparently something in the system didn't agree with 32-bit samples.

If a whole game could be converted to native instructions you'd only need some 600MHz CPU. Some PowerPC instructions require multiple x86/ARM instructions, so there'd be a little bit of overhead. But the JIT can only convert small parts of a game, because a game can use dynamic addresses and self-modifying code and shit, so there's a lot of places where dolphin has to manually read and process each instruction and that's fucking slow. >>1360 Can you record and play voice messages and use the camera?

>>1383 >Can you record and play voice messages and use the camera? Yes, all SMS/MMS Equivalents function with their intended purpose. The only thing that seems to fail is the encrypted Internet VoIP (which I assume is how Signal does that). Strangely, I also hear the ringing signal but others don't see me call, nor do I see them call. I'm begining to think it is an emulated mp3 because the server itself doesn't provide POTS-type telephony signals. >Can you see DNS logs and does it have successful lookups for what looks like Signal servers?

What is your take on UDev? Necessary complexity for dynamically managing and auto mounting devices or pure bloat? It is now part of SystemD but it didn't begin this way. I wasn't able to find an alternative with equivalent functionalities. It seems that MDev was what came closest to it, still falling behind though.

We know that Linux is posed, but what about the GPL? Version 2 still seem like a fine license. Regarding the permissive licenses, doesn't it bother you that others can sell your work or use it on their projects without giving anothing back?
>>1471 People can sell even GPL-licensed software without contributing back for what is worth. The license doesn't stop you from doing it; the only requirement is that users of your software have access to the source code. In practice this means that if the users of your software are only those who paid for it, you don't have to put your source code on the internet on a publically accessible repository, just that inside the zip file (or whatever you use to distribute the software to your customers) there is also the source code besides the executable. And the GPLv2 has a number of holes that allow certain non-free software to avoid some restrictions placed by the license in some specific cases. The GPLv3 is more well-defined and the only real "issue" is that not everyone wants to deal with the "virality" of the license.

Ideally some FOSS clone of Jira as a standalone application instead of some software as a service on the cloud bullshit. Any recommendations?
>>1668 Why?
>>1676 >standalone application Nope, you're gonna run a local webserver at the very least. Assuming you not only need issue tracking but also time tracking and organization, it's gonna be Redmine. Assuming you barely know shit about servers and you only use it yourself, I recommand you go for SQLite as a database, which saves you a number of installation steps. And I recommend you get redmine through docker, because that prevents you from fucking up the redmine environment and the installation of redmine gets reduced to (see https://hub.docker.com/_/redmine ) docker run -d -p 3000:3000 redmine in a command prompt, after which you can login on http://localhost:3000/ .

My chinkware monitor (Prism M27eq)'s HDMI 2.0 port crapped out. It works but Windows detects it as "Generic PnP monitor" with a resolution of 640x480. Other ports on the monitor work. Any potential solutions? Factory reset didn't do shit, except make the settings menu Chinese. Unintalling and reinstalling graphics card drivers didn't work either, and the monitor just works when I plug it into any other ports.

>>1766 I should note, the whole thing was weird. I was playing autismcraft with a jewropoor friend on his server. We both lost connection and my computer fucked up with the monitor completely losing power. Had to plug it in and out a few times until it worked at all again. At the same time as I was having monitor issues, my friend's internet got disconnected for half an hour. Thought we got hacked or some shit. >>1767 The cable itself works with another HDMI port on the monitor, and another HDMI cable didn't help.

Install Gentoo is the holy grail of tech advice because doing that teaches you problem solving and computer basics. Install Gentoo into someone else computer encourage the person to learn more about computer. This is not shitposting because this is precisely why Install Gentoo is the answer to Windows (ironically people who ask questions about using Windows memes just werk when Linux is mentioned, why are they asking if it just werks?) and user stupidity (hard lessons that they didn't take, driving a car without learning how to, even if the car looks like a kid's toy). Read my post again, people who uses windows except for exclusive programs do not respect their "real work". They let their system to stop their work and slow them down. Doing their "real work" without even learning how to use their tools. TL;DR Reddit spacer should fuck off and Install Gentoo

>>1837 you explained yourself well but you could have done it without being a faggot. Not everyone who likes to put a line of space between small paragraphs is a redditor. Stop spouting memes about "reddit spacing". I don't even know what that means. >doesn't deserve a response because it is about >>windows, which is irreverent enough >>user stupidity, which is not technology as well this is a fair argument, but I would say user stupidity as it relates to tech is still relevant. Also, "irreverent" is wrong here, in case that's not a typo, you should know it's "irrelevant". I would also argue that simply because something has to do with Windows doesn't exclude it. This board isn't a Linux support group, it's just /tech/. It's of course not a Windows support group either but that doesn't mean you get to tell anons what they can and can't ask here. >Stupid question posters should get back to their designed sites, This is a QTDDTOT. Simple and stupid questions are to be expected here. >Install Gentoo is the holy grail of tech advice because doing that teaches you problem solving and computer basics. I don't think it's a holy grail, but it makes sense as far as learning about computers. But, learning about one operating system doesn't mean you're an expert. I could just as easily say building your own CP/M PC from a Z80 chip is the holy grail of tech advice. Or writing your own OS. Or making your own language, etc. >Read my post again, people who uses windows except for exclusive programs do not respect their "real work". They let their system to stop their work and slow them down. Doing their "real work" without even learning how to use their tools. So, it seems like you believe a CAD person, or a person working at a POS terminal, to not respect their "real work". How is that so? Simply because the OS is proprietary doesn't mean they're not respecting their work. It would help if it were not, but that's not the point. I would wager a vast majority of the physical products you own were designed by engineers working on Windows. And you use those things. Your computer is one example, the simulations for heat transfer are often done on software in Windows. So, you think that this work isn't good in some way? After all it is what enabled you to make this very post. You don't need to know about computers to use them. It would be nice, though. >>1838 >You should be able understood that without anon tell it to your face, brainlet.

>>1841 Do your computing
>>1841 1) setup your useraccount if you haven't already (make sure he's in the video group, along with audio and so forth...) 2) get doas (or sudo) 3) sudo emerge --sync && sudo emerge -uavND @world 4) sudo emerge -av eix vim layman gentoolkit 5) eix-sync 6) if your using a amd graphics card (or integrated graphics) you'll want to add the proper VIDEO_CARDS to make.conf so mesa doesn't scream at you. 7) once you've done that simply emerge -av xorg-server rxvt-unicode i3(you can suppliment this with whatever WM you want, openbox is a good choice) 8) edit .xinitrc to include "exec i3" (replace "i3" with whatever wm you chose) 9) startx You sholuld now have a basic graphic enviroment. Adding to this is rather simple since it's all done through easy to locate and understand config files. For i3wm the config is located in .config/i3 Most configs will be in this directory, if they aren't the application maintainer is a shithead. Examples of shitheads would be: Mozila firefox, they keep their configs in /home/$USER/.mozilla Added tip, use eix to search for applications instead of emerge --search, because emerge --search is slow. now.. having audio issues? Things playing through hdmi instead of your headset? There are two options if you come across this issue. 1) install pulseaudio (this option is gay and will likly lead to other issues) 2) edit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf For editing alsa.conf you will need the output of aplay -l to find your audio card. Once you know what audio card it is, simply set it's index to 0... that will load it as the default card instead of hdmi out. example setting would be "options snd_hda_intel id=Generic index=0" With that you should have a basic desktop setup :) Now it's just about getting a web browser, mediaplayer, steam, etc.. which are all rather trivial.
>>1843 Stop spoonfeeding that retard. Anyway, he is probably booted into the minimal install and thinks that's the live system. Since the environment doesn't come with the handbook, he haven't read it. Otherwise, he would've known all the post install steps. It's as >>1844 says, this time we will make /tech/ great again. Whatever it takes. Quality is maintained. Getting posters to lurk moar is the solition. There are 2 reasons for shitposts: newfaggotry and shitposters. Newfags should lurk to integrate with board cultures, Shitposters should lurk to learn how to learn. If someone has installed Gentoo, he would've been able to lookup solutions and read them. Lurking leads to installing Gentoo. Installing Gentoo leads to thoughts and skills. That leads to knowledge and thus high quality topics and posts.
I installed ungoogled chromium, when I use it to shitpost in the message box the spellchecking doesnt work, anyway to get it up and running?
>>1847 You could learn to use proper spelling and grammar.
>>1845 I find it better to post then not to post. Especially when you have at least something of value to say. You can't have a discussion without some sort of give/take in the form of information. It's just not possible to speak of something but not let them into what your speaking about. It's kinda niggerlicious otherwise. Learning. discussing and finding out new things is what made the internet so great in general... i hate the new founded redditfag mentality of hording information for the sake of being that "cool kid"
>1843 Thanks, I was working on getting a wm but I didn't know about fluxbox/openbox. Both seem to work, just need to configure more stuff. About the audio, alsa says I have no soundcard, but I'll look into it more tomorrow. >>1845 Handbook? Do you mean this one?: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:AMD64/Installation/Finalizing I've been following it from the beginning.
>>1852 >no soundcard Did you manually compile the kernel or use genkernel? If you manually compiled it, you will need to enable suppoert for your soundcard in the config. I haven't ever heard of a case where genkernel wouldn't work, but if it doesn't work... try modprobing some audio drivers and see if any of them work. If you did manual, my suggestion would be to just build all the audio codecs as modules, linux should automatically load in the right ones if you do that (will also help in figuring out which ones were needed if you wanted to specify manually later).
>>1854 I'd just grab liquorix kernel config and use that. https://raw.githubusercontent.com/damentz/liquorix-package/5.5/linux-liquorix/debian/config/kernelarch-x86/config-arch-64 This runs the latest kernel, should probably enable tun/tap and ext4 if you actually want a functional computer.

>>1851 Thank you Mr. Newfaggot Onion for the definition of low quality shitpost. Open your god damm eyes, this isn't the dark age before universities and search engine. Your mentality is reddit. No body is stopping anyone to learn on their own, there are tons of IRC channels and forums for n00bs. Another one is not needed. Your selfish shortsighted shitpost does nothing but diluting the quality of this board, because you encourage stupid questions and answers. >value There is Gentoo wiki, irc, gentoo forum, the information hiding "reddit" where post last forever and has an onion interface of your taste. What value does that carry if the same information is only two taps away? How can one "hoard" information when they are every where? >Learning. discussing and finding out new things is what made the internet so great in general... But this isn't the Internet, this is a forum. This is not a blog for your learning process. This zoomer reddit mentality where no effort is paid to do their own researches is what destroyed the old culture. People stop listening and started talking, even if they know nothing. They are even proud of this. And you, being a beta cuck, "help" zero effort posters to fuel your ego on an anonymous image board. You can offer your help on irc, plebbit and cuckchan /g/, where you should go back. By "helping", you robbed a person's chance to struggle and fail. A failure that isn't a big deal, that can potentially improve his patience, reading comprehension, searching, computer knowledge, etc. You are the people that are fucking the Internet up. The Internet was glorious because there are things to learn, not asking people to teach; because there are discussion about things that I don't know, so I can get on their level; because there are new things that pop's up on a webpage, which I can mark down on my to-search list. It was good because top power level users are engaging each other, not because it was a charity soup kitchen.
>>1856 You sure have tried your hardest on hitting that word limit on your essay. As far as i can tell though, you're repeating yourself a little too much in an attempt to make something seem like a bigger deal then it is. The main point of your arguement seems to boil down to >spoonfeeding is bad cause they don't get a chance to fail and >information is everywhere!! it better not like old net All of these i have a issue with. Firstly, i didn't spoonfeed. He asked a question and i gave him an outline of things and terms to look up. with some small tips like using eix instead of emerge --search But for the most part, when i mentioned something like Setting VIDEO_CARDS in make.conf, i didn't say "now go put this line here in this FULLPATH. I simple said, you may want to do this. Which obviously set him into motion to look for things listed under XORG and MESA. Some other things like "tips" were not largely documented, like when i said to change the INDEX of the loaded audio module, didn't ass to tell all the small details of everything, i just said that hdmi is loaded first and you'll want to change that, because the alternative would be using gayass pulseaudio shit. Is this spoonfeeding? To name alternatives and point someone in the direction where they can learn? No, it is not. I didn't make a full writeup tutorial on "how to do thing" i just said "thing". Secondly, if you were to look up "thing" you'll probably just find a thousand pages of "HOW TO DO THING (NOT CLICKBAIT) (WORKS) (FIXED)" which i argue is actually fucking worse. Which is where the second problem to your argument. >this isn't the dark age before universities and search engine Have you literally ever used a search engine to look up a thing you weren't 100% intouch with the termonolgy of? You often get jack shit in terms of results because everything is bogged down by post modernist content farms that will spew the most bullshit of advice in exchange for clicks, doesn't matter if it actually works or not. Either that, or you get tens of dozens of pages full of shit for old and obsolete advice. If you looked up now "get x to work on linux" where "x" is your specified program or game, you'll either get nothing, or someone from playonlinux or the fucking linux mint fourms telling you to install some shit that actually doesn't fucking work. I'll never understand how debianfags can cope with this The internet is largely composed of Aldous Huxley nightmare fuel. Lots of trivial shit which fucks up the legit shit. Do you honestly think someone would fucking ask a obscure literally fuck ass no where imageboard (that has even less traffic then 8kunt) for fucking advice on something they could've figured out with a search engine? Porbably fucking not. As seen from the replies of the good fellow i "spoonfeeded" He is legit taking things into his own hands, following the handbook (lol more like spoonfeedbook) The real reason he's asking questions is because 1) he just wants to discuss 2) legit actually can't find it to someone who isn't well versed in everything gentoo it actually is rather difficult to get into, it requires a lot more knowledge on how things work, the gentoo wiki often has a lot of stubs with some good (but outdated) info on them, followed by lots of terms that your average user doesn't know from the start. >y-you cheated him out of failing/learning He's still going to fail anyway lol.. better to get his bareends before he turns into some shitty debianfag comic about why linux sux. >your mentality is reddit Go back to 8kunt. Unnecessary discussion policing and bullshit conditioning into only talking about bland uninteresting shit is exactly what they do all the fucking time there. I don't give a shit if you state me as being "reddit", i most certainly never fucking used that site in my life and i don't give a single shit for pointless bland circle jerks just to get some ecred in the Greek system. > It was good because top power level users are engaging each other, not because it was a charity soup kitchen. what? tbh i just had to look up what the fuck a "power level user" was. Your claim is that users who shoe horn themselfs in normal conversation proping themselves up on a pedistal like their some authority figure on X are somehow related to a guy giving a small tip to a guy who asked a question in a thread specified for such questions? You are off your rocker. By that logic this entire fucking thread should be deleted, no one should attempt to have any discussions with anyone at all or help anyone ever because muh boogieman. also i find it funny that your entire argument cited a post that i made in the first place, lol And by all means call this low quality posting on the same vain as /g/ cause clearly /g/ isn't full of niggercattle who can't post more then two fucking words at a time.
>>1856 >>1859 to further my point. If someone wanted to get into detail and talk/discuss about something in a video game, like the backstab hitbox on players in tf2 or how lag ping compensation effects things, how one can improve it using console commands. Would that literally be an issue? If i said, use cl_interp to change ms delay. how the fuck is that bad. Or if people wanted to discuss techniques with pyro's airblast... Sharing information, tips and advice among eachother is a stable in discussion and makes things interesting. Old /tech/ was a lot like this, there'd be a thread on people playing around with apache or a fag who wanted to host a live VM for anons to play around with. Generally, cool shit. But as it is, imageboards are mostly dying because it's full of literal pussies with a mob mentality, who are afraid of saying anything in fear that the fun police will come sperging in, or they are the fun police. Over disassociation is an issue, it's a strange issue considering the origin or anonymous. But it is one none the less. Just like over association which is the mentality of redditfags and circle jerkers. We used to get around this because it was anonymous, no one could over associate niether could they disassociate cause everyone shared the same name, making turning around in an argument and saying "lel jk i just baited you all, i was merely pretending" not a option. But somehow in cy+ it somehow happened. A bunch of circle jerkers claiming stake over professionalism while being anonymous... it's kinda funny if it wasn't so niggerlicious. Imageboards are a lot like that study with the apes, where they conditioned the apes with water to attack eachother if they even dared reach for the food in the center. Over time they didn't need to use water anymore because the dumbass apes would just attack eachother without it. over time, newapes got introduced and old apes left, there were no longer any from the point they were using water, but alas the conditioning remained. I get the feeling that none of the faggots posting know anything of why or when, but rather just shit spew a bunch of buzzwords in attempt to fit in, while at the same time ruining posting quality in the long term.

Is DNS over HTTPS a meme or does it work to somewhat obfuscate and encrypt traffic between a resolver and user? Enterprise jews seem to hate it for not running systemwide and allowing evil wageslaves to bypass DNS blocks via custom DoH resolvers somehow.
>>1888 DoH works by sending an HTTPS request to a central entity, which then does the normal DNS resolution somehow and finally sends back an HTTPS response to you with the DNS record as data.

Haven't compile kexec-tools to see if they are enough. Pic related is 4 recently discovered pads and others I tested. The power button connects to the snap on cable covering up those pads. By how nicely they are hidden, I bet they are serial or debug ports. But I see no way to access them with the cable covering them up.
>>1896 With some soldering you can easily attach a couple of (bare) wires that point to the sides so you can measure with the flex cable in place. But since that cable goes to the lower PCB with the USB connector, I bet those test points are for 5V or even SPI or I2C. How have you been testing by the way? Checking for voltage spikes? Using an actual logic analyzer? Also note that serial only needs 2 wires and a common ground. Those groupings of 4 may be a distraction.

I will try to solder some wires on them.
>>1898 Yeah if you need insulation, use some tape or actual insulated wires. I suggested it because I thought the easiest way would be some bare wires that you keep apart by not being clumsy and that everything they do touch is insulated anyway. >I do this in su'ed adb shell I hadn't even considered you can just pump out data over UART continuously. That makes life a lot easier. The first time I tried finding a serial console it was a black box that I just had to keep resetting for each pin hoping that one would trigger a pattern on the scope. Then again, are you sure FIQ2 is really up and running and muxed to a couple of real pins? Also have you found a schematic of the board or even the pinout of the Exynos 5430, assuming that's the name on your soc?

Experimental Android builds are hosted here: https://github.com/mpv-android/mpv-android/releases If you need FOSS replacements of GApps, then use https://f-droid.org/ There's a Google Play Store alternative there called Aurora Store, it just simply proxifies (if you tell it to) applications from it. YOU SHOULD SWITCH THE STOCK ROM TO LINEAGEOS OR ANYTHING AOSP BASED THAT DOESN'T COME PREINSTALLED WITH GAPPS OF ANY KIND If you can't, then use Netguard (you can find pro versions on some sites) firewall that acts as a VPN. If you can, then install Magisk after flashing a custom rom of your choice and install AFWall+. Non-botnet browsers are Bromite (like Ungoogled Chromium), Tor Browser for Android and configured Firefox (or just IceCat Mobile/Fennec F-Droid).
Is dual boot Linux with windows good enough to prevent any spying from only Microsoft itself?
>>1925 It depends.
>>1925 While it is obviously going to be better than windows only the moment you boot into windows you are still,well, booting into windows so Micro$hit still gets to run their code on your machine.
>>1925 If you already installed Windows and gave it permission to use your internet access, then you're fucked and nothing will remove the data Microsoft harvested from you. Yes, even if you send them GDPR complaint (assuming you're European), nothing will prove that they actually deleted it. If you want to stop yourself being "spied on", then you would had to disable/remove yours network adapter drivers, then write/burn GNU/Linux iso of your choice to your USB or CD/DVD drive and install it alongside Windows. I recommend manual partitioning like so: vfat/fat32 512 MiB boot partition (assuming you installed Windows with UEFI enabled on a GPT drive) ext4 15-30 GB root (/) partition (the size depends on what software, and how much it weights you will be installing) 1x 1.5x of your RAM in GB swap partition (optional) rest of your HDD/SDD capacity for /home partition (also optional, but much recommended if you aren't encrypting your drive)
Do you think 8kun has banned pretty much all tor nodes and made the excuse that because others with the same nodes have been banned so you cant post with tor? Been failing to post with tor on 8kun continuously.
>>1930 >Do you think 8kun has banned pretty much all tor nodes and made the excuse that because others with the same nodes have been banned so you cant post with tor? I don't like anserwing questions with questions, but why do you think 8kun has such shitty Tor support, without .onion v3 hidden service in 2020? >Been failing to post with tor on 8kun continuously. You deserve this.
>>1925 Define the threat model, you dumb reddit faggot. Are you worried about Microsoft cooperating with the FBI or whatever because you have seriously illegal stuff on your PC? In that case, you should not have Windows installed, that machine shouldn't be online in the first place, and you should have phisically removed any hardware allowing such machine to go online. Are you worried about Microsoft looking through your weird furry porn? They don't care and are bleeding enough money and manpower as is on comically neutered telemetry to find out which decade old piece of shit broke this time. Are you worried about Microsoft being incompetent and leaking data that could be connected back to you? Then try to use Windows as little as possible, ideally on a dedicated machine so you don't accidentally open personal files on it. In general, privacy laws ain't nothing to fuck with and failure to comply accidentally (let alone intentionally) can result in billions of fines for large companies, despite what tards such as >>1929 say. >>1930 pigchan is 95% stormfaggots that hate anonymity at this point, take a guess.

>>1933 The fine comes from government orgs that doesn't need to go through a court or even have a single complaint from a single average citizen, and the government is more than willing to bitchslap any company challenging its authority. Look at data protection in the medical sector to undestand how serious that business is, and how no company can afford to cut corners there.
>>1930 Mark disables tor for a few hours every time he wipes every single tor post from his board because 1 tor poster disagreed with him, so that might be the issue you're having. And it's not like calling him out on it will do anything since somehow the glow niggers pulled off a relatively successful pysop on 8kun and convinced everyone to hate "torpedos". But in general tor posting works when Mark hasn't gotten blown the fuck out by a tor poster. It's an interesting way to tell which ID is Mark though. If suddenly the guy you've been arguing with stops responding, your posts get wiped, and tor stops working, you know you just made Mark really butthurt. You can get tor disabled instantly if you even so much as mention that he begged for a board on Julay. It's all so ridiculous that it's become incredibly fun to fuck with 8kun and Mark. They've somehow become even more absurd than cuckchan normalfags. At least cuckchan doesn't pretend to care about privacy or open discussion.
>>1935 >random button smashing What, you don't get that consistently from holding the on button+volume down or volume up while booting? >Is my tx right? What is the usual voltage different between grd, rx and tx? The same level as you're getting on the rx, usually 3.3V. Have you tested all 3 other pins for being rx? Like, is the ground really ground or a weak pull-down rx?
>>1942 No. I can reliablely get the partition table by vol down+power though. There should be some sort of key combination to enter this console. Interestingly the serial output stops when usb is attached after clipping on the grd and rx. Will test for voltage again.

How do C++ methods actually work? Are they actual data like function pointers? I want something that looks like a method, but is really just syntactic sugar for a normal function with the object passed in. For example if I do >someString.append("nigger") I want it to be effectively identical to >string_append(&someString, "nigger") Is this what C++ methods are or is there some specific other way to do it?
>>2029 C++ functions are just like C functions. After the stack frame is set, program flow control jumps from the caller to the function. Member functions are no different than any other functions in that sense. And, like any other function, their address can be taken and passed into something that expects a callable. This is the basis of using functors in C++ algorithms, though lambdas are the modern approach to this need. If you really to understand the relationship between modern C++ and functional programming, I'd recommend book-related anon. >>>/robowaifu/149
>>2029 meh i'll spoonfeed you anon >niggers.cpp #include <iostream> #include <string> using std::cout; using std::string; /* For example if I do >someString.append("nigger") I want it to be effectively identical to >string_append(&someString, "nigger") */ std::string append(std::string* targ, const std::string& s) { return targ->append(s); } int main() { string niga{"niggerA_"}; string nigb{"niggerB_"}; // this lambda is identical in effect to functor above, but since C++11 this // is the preferred approach for a simple case like this one. auto foo{[&niga](auto& s) -> std::string { return niga.append(s); }}; cout << foo("stole_my_bike") << '\n'; cout << append(&nigb, "dindu_nuffin") << '\n'; } >outputs niggerA_stole_my_bike niggerB_dindu_nuffin
>>2030 >>2031 I think you might be misunderstanding my question. I believe I read somewhere that you can change the method during runtime or even in an individual instance of an object. If that's possible then some kind of pointer or ID or other data must be stored somewhere, and the compiler can't for example optimize the function by inlining it. If you have a function pointer, it's basically an integer that's part of the object's data. But that's different from a normal function which is completely separate from the object/class. I guess another way to ask what I'm asking is; when you call a method, which one is it more similar to, calling a function pointer or calling a normal function?
>>2033 >I guess another way to ask what I'm asking is; when you call a method, which one is it more similar to, calling a function pointer or calling a normal function? oh. well in my opinion it's more like any typical function. you have to make special accommodations to treat it like a function pointer (which can be done) from user code. the general notion is simply 'callable' in C++, and it matters little whether the callable is encapsulated inside a class or not. btw, taking the address of a handle is generally discouraged in C++. just use it directly: string_append(someString, "nigger") ofc this is silly in this example anyway, since the type itself already provides the '.append()' member function.

I'm very stupid but I want to learn how to code regardless. I've been tinkering off and on trying to self tutor, but have come to a point where I think I need to learn exactly how the computer works if I'm to advance. I recall a particular book being listed before in threads on similar boards detailing exactly how a computer works, but I cannot remember that book. Does anyone know what it is, or any book that details such? I figure if I know how the computer truly works that will help in my journey to being less niggerlicious and almost sub-average.
>>2233 >but have come to a point where I think I need to learn exactly how the computer works if I'm to advance it won't really help. they are incredibly complex and only the most advanced programming work requires a deep understanding of how they work. if your goal is just a hobby understanding of tech, then try khan academy. if you really want to become a professional programmer eventually after years of effort on your part then read stroustrup's PPP2. programming well is a rigorous discipline. not everyone is cut out for it. ask yourself why you want to learn it. what are your practical goals?
>>2234 >ask yourself why you want to learn it. what are your practical goals? Work that can be duplicated ten thousand times over, an actual infinite resource assuming the device can process whatever needs to be processed, roughly as close as one can come to actual magic in this sorry age. >practical goals I'd like to be able to program things that ideas guys can come up with, since I don't really have any originality of my own.

So I pieced code snippets from places to get a running program that can download a file from the Internet using libcurl, but the progress bar doesn't seem to work.

Void Linux/i3wm. I've been having a weird issue with one of my programs using SDL where sometimes the screen will stop updating (it doesn't respond to SDL_UpdateWindowSurface). My render/event loops are not blocking on anything (or at least printf is acting like it's not blocking on anything and if I pause the program in gdb it doesn't consistently end up at any one particular function), and SDL is not giving me any errors. I initially thought it might be a problem with SDL itself but then I discovered that this issue also occurs with other programs, particularly Qt-based ones--basically, the screen will permanently refuse to update until I resize the window/go into fullscreen. Also, sometimes performing an action (e.g. clicking on a button) in one window will "unpause" other windows affected by the bug. I'm wondering if this is an issue with my WM (i3) or X11. Interestingly, this bug doesn't apply to screen recordings--if I record the screen using OBS, the video will show the screen behaving completely normally without any pauses.
>>2267 i have no idea how to solve that problem other than the obvious ones heh but i'm interested in the topic of graphics in general, so question. is there any commonality between the problematic ones? say OpenGL or something.
>>2268 I was tempted to say that OpenGL might be the issue, since to my knowledge Qt5 does use OpenGL to render objects; however, I compiled a version of my program that doesn't use openGL and ran into the same problem. This seems to be an i3-only issue, since I ran my program in openbox and it functioned near-perfectly in a window (even drew while resizing, albeit with a shitton of artifacts, as expected of X11); however, it still freezes when in fullscreen. I did fix a bunch of seemingly unrelated bugs related to overflow and bad behavior in OpenGL when the window had zero size. Sometimes it'll seem like after starting a new X session the problem goes away, but it returns after five minutes or so.
>>2269 >this seems to be an i3-only issue Forgot to delete that. The freezing happens in fullscreen in openbox.
question: do any of you know about gigapixel ai? does it cost anything, how much botnet is in it?
>>2269 >but it returns after five minutes or so. hmm. think there might be some internal state you're holding onto that overflows somewhere? in the window manager code?
>>2272 Five minutes is in reference to the amount of time the WM session is running, not the program. The freezing can occur as early as I start the program if I try to run it in fullscreen.
>>2273 k. sorry i got nothing.
>>2267 >>2269 I'm tempted to say it's something related to event handling. Which program is it? Did you write it yourself or it's by someone else?
Open file (187.33 KB 720x405 xshm.webm)
>>2275 I wrote it myself. Here's a dead meme, and a video of the problem.
>>2276 I see. As it is unfortunately it's hard to say where the problem is without inspecting the program's source. Does the freezing happen only when you use your program, or does it happen even when you never run it?
>>2277 See >>2267 >this issue also occurs with other programs, particularly Qt-based ones--basically, the screen will permanently refuse to update until I resize the window/go into fullscreen However I'm wondering if it's something I'm doing wrong on my end. Here is the SDL event handling code (D) that is relevant to refreshing the window. private int base_handler(SDL_Event* p_event) { if (p_event.window.event == SDL_WINDOWEVENT_CLOSE) { return 0; } if (p_event.window.event == SDL_WINDOWEVENT_EXPOSED) { flush(); } if (p_event.window.event == SDL_WINDOWEVENT_SIZE_CHANGED) { resize(p_event.window.data1, p_event.window.data2); } return 1; } This is flush(). out(ret; ret 0) is equivalent to assert(SDL_UpdateWindowSurface(p_win) 0); int flush() out(ret; ret == 0) { blContextFlush(&ctx, BL_CONTEXT_FLUSH_SYNC); //flushes blend2d drawing context return SDL_UpdateWindowSurface(p_win); } I call my draw functions and flush() every frame in addition to when an SDL_WINDOWEVENT_EXPOSED event is emitted.
>>2278 can i ask, what does 'private' mean in this context? also, do you need to use the return result from flush() inside your handler?
>>2278 also, i'm unfamiliar with a function signature like this: int flush() out(ret; ret == 0){...} mind spoon-feeding me a bit?
>>2278 What about the event loop itself? It's probably not important, but it's better to have some more context. Also you didn't answer this other question: >does it happen even when you never run it [your program]?
>>2279 These are methods of a Window struct; 'private' means the same thing it does in C++ (can't call the method from an external scope). >>2280 int flush() out(ret; ret == 0){...} It's an assert that's carried out in debug builds once the function is completed; the return value is assigned to the expression 'ret' and the assert fails if 'ret' is anything but 0. SDL_UpdateWindowSurface returns a negative value on error. I'm not using the return from flush for now because the assert would just abort the program if a nonzero value is returned.
>>2281 >does it happen even when you never run it [your program]? Yes, in Qt applications; for example, if I open up qjackctl and open the graph window in fullscreen, sometimes it'll be "frozen" but the results of my actions will be visible after I un-fullscreen it. I'm not sure the problem is with the event handling code since the same event handler is used to redraw the video every time libmpv (which I am using for the embedded video). struct PrimeHandler { struct EventHandlers { EventHandler!(SDL_WINDOWEVENT) window; EventHandler!(SDL_KEYDOWN) keyboard_down; EventHandler!(SDL_KEYUP) keyboard_up; }; struct UserEventHandlers { version(gl_video) { UserEventHandler!(ReservedEventTypes.MPVEventWakeup) mpv_event; UserEventHandler!(ReservedEventTypes.MPVRenderUpdate) mpv_render; } }; EventHandlers event_handlers; UserEventHandlers user_event_handlers; private SDL_EventType userevent_offset; ... }
>>2282 i see, thanks for the info. i'll probably understand it better when i start playing around with sdl. good luck with your project anon.
>>2278 does the resize() need any additional arguments? seems like the SDL_WINDOWEVENT_SIZE_CHANGED in that clause might be related to your problem area.
>>2283 >tfw pressing enter submits your post before you're ready to post it Well. I'm sure the following is indecipherable to anyone who doesn't write D, but since I've already posted my shit, might as well go full ham. The following methods are included in the PrimeHandler struct: int poll(SDL_Event* p_event) in(p_event) { int ret = 1; event_poll: switch (p_event.type) { static foreach (field; FieldNameTuple!(typeof(event_handlers))) { case (mixin("event_handlers."~field~".EventType")): { ret &= mixin("event_handlers."~field~".poll(p_event)"); break event_poll; } } default: break; } if (p_event.type < userevent_offset) { return ret; } event_poll2: switch(p_event.type - userevent_offset) { static foreach (field; FieldNameTuple!(typeof(user_event_handlers))) { case (cast(SDL_EventType)( mixin("user_event_handlers."~field~".EventType"))): { ret &= mixin("user_event_handlers."~field~".poll(p_event)"); break event_poll2; } } default: break; } return ret; } int pollEvents() { int ret = 1; SDL_Event event; while (SDL_PollEvent(&event)) { ret &= poll(&event); } return ret; } The idea is that each EventHandler/UserEventHandler struct takes an event type as a template parameter and maintains a list of callbacks that are supposed to receive that type of event; this list can be appended to at runtime. When the poll() method is called, the switch/case statement calls the poll() method of the relevant EventHandler/UserEventHandler. All of the poll() methods return 1 by default, or 0 if for some reason the program needs to close, and this return value is propagated back. And here's main(). getPrimeHandler() returns a pointer to a global event handler. while (getPrimeHandler().pollEvents()) { test_gui.draw(); win.flush(); } >>2284 Thanks.
>>2285 resize() is a method that takes exactly two parameters, the screen width and height (which SDL stores in the "data1" and "data2" members). For the Window struct, what it does is: >Reset/recreate blend2D drawing context and image >Obtain the new window surface pointer from SDL (the surface pointer is invalidated when the window is resized). struct Window { SDL_Window* p_win = null; SDL_Surface* p_sfc = null; SDL_GLContext gl = null; BLContextCore ctx; BLImageCore tgt; ... void initBlend2D(int x = BaseWindow.Width, int y = BaseWindow.Height) { blImageInitAsFromData(&tgt, x, y, BL_FORMAT_PRGB32, p_sfc.pixels, p_sfc.pitch, null, null); blContextInitAs(&ctx, &tgt, null); blContextSetCompOp(&ctx, BL_COMP_OP_SRC_COPY); } void initSurface() out(;p_sfc) { p_sfc = SDL_GetWindowSurface(p_win); } void cleanupBlend2D() { blContextEnd(&ctx); blContextReset(&ctx); blImageReset(&tgt); } void resize(int x, int y) { cleanupBlend2D(); initSurface(); initBlend2D(x,y); logf!(LogPriority.Verbose)( "Window %x: resize to %u, %u\n", p_win, x, y); } }
>>2287 >(the surface pointer is invalidated when the window is resized) hmm. sounds like the context may be invalid atp. do you need to build a new one?
>>2288 The SDL function to get the GL context takes only the window pointer as a parameter, and it doesn't say anywhere in the documentation that the GL context is invalidated when the window is resized (unlike the surface). I'm not using the GL context for directly presenting to the window anyhow; the GUI is software rendered. What I'm doing is I'm having mpv use hardware rendering, so it renders into a separate framebuffer (so I can resize/otherwise transform the video frame), which I transfer to clientside memory via a pixel buffer object then blit onto the window surface.
>>2290 i see. can you confirm that a) the framebuffer is still being updated after a resize, and b) that you are successfully continuing to read from that (hopefully updated) buffer. other than that i'd check the blitting part of the pipeline chain. good luck.
Also another missing informations, though it might simply be that I can't read: does it happen only when in fullscreen, or does it happen when windowed too? To clarify, does it bug out if you never use fullscreen? If you use it windowed but then switch to fullscreen, does the bug appear?
>>2292 The bug happens in windowed and fullscreen and at all tested resolutions. A few weird quirks: >when the window is frozen clicking on the window will unfreeze it for ~1 second >resizing the window will also unfreeze it for ~1 second. >this does not work in fullscreen >the freezes are much shorter when the application window is not the active window >when sharing the screen with certain programs (such as qutebrowser), the bug will not occur. >>2291 This is the OpenGL code that is run on a resize. It reallocates storage for the renderbuffer used as the color attachment and the PBO used for transfer. "rct" is a rectangle with the dimensions of the video drawing target. glBindRenderbuffer(GL_RENDERBUFFER, rb); glRenderbufferStorage(GL_RENDERBUFFER, GL_RGBA, rct.w, rct.h); glBindBuffer(GL_PIXEL_PACK_BUFFER, pbo); glBufferData(GL_PIXEL_PACK_BUFFER, rct.w*rct.h*4, null, GL_STREAM_READ); I'm not sure this is an OpenGL issue, though, because the draw call count on the top left of the screen, which is software rendered, also freezes.
>>2293 Also see >>2276. If the OBS capture is to be trusted, the window seems to be updated with the correct contents, but for some reason the changes aren't getting to what I personally see on the screen.
>>2292 To be precise: The bug will happen even if I never use fullscreen. If I use windowed and switch to fullscreen, the bug will also appear.
>>2293 Then I will have to ask you to test your program in a different system. It can be anything, as long as it's not the Void/i3 combination. It might be hard to do, but it's the only way to make sure it's not actually a problem with the system. Since it happens even with Qt applications not written by you, the cause can really be anything: it could be your program, it could be a bug in Qt, it could be a bug in the window manager or even in the shared libraries provided by Void. The snippets of code you provided don't have anything immediately noticeable.

so, i was on the installgentoo wiki today, and it reminded me i had DLd the gentooman library a few years back. i looked for it and sure enough i have it. question: i tried to start seeding it by grabbing the magnet in qbittorrent, pausing it, pointing the source directory to my copy, and then unpausing it. problem is, it's still downloading as if i'd never gotten it. the download & the directory both look ok, but forcing a recheck didn't do anything, it's still downloading on me first. any way to fix this /tech/?
>>2312 Basic things you could check: Make sure it's not treating the directory you selected as a parent (or child) directory, and maybe check to see if the hash matches and you don't have corrupt data. Also, make sure that whatever it is you're trying to seed is the same version.
>>2313 >check to see if the hash matches and you don't have corrupt data I'm breddy sure the data is fine, since all the files I've checked open correctly and I have no reason to think otherwise. I don't have any additional files but the contents, so I don't know how to check hashes. >Also, make sure that whatever it is you're trying to seed is the same version. Again, not sure how I would check that. But also, I would be surprised if there was a new version of this (as far as the files themselves), it's kind of unique tbh. Actually I wish someone would do a new version heh, there are plenty of really out of date items here.
>>2312 >>2313 You also have to consider that when a peer connects to the network to request some file(s), it advertises which "blocks" of the requested file(s) it has. It's very likely that your peer told other peers that it has no blocks (as it is when starting a new torrent) and even after you changed the destination directory it still thinks it has no blocks. I don't know exactly how to fix this on qBittorrent, but I'd search for something like "checking" the files or even simply restarting the peer (either just close the program or, if it uses some daemon program, kill the daemon.)
>>2314 >famposting retard >can't even do basic hashes or check directory structure I rescind all previous attempts to help you as required under the GPL license. Go kill yourself.
>>2315 QB has a 'force recheck' option, and the counter for that climbs all the way to 100% (which in my experience means the files are present and accounted for). Unfortunately immediately after the check, it drops right back to ~0% as at the start. >>2316 I know how to hash individual files, but I don't save .torrent files so I'm not sure how to match them up, torrenting details like this haven't been an area of study. Also, >being an asshat towards someone who is trying to re-seed a yuge torrent that I had already done > 2.0 ratio on the past, and especially on a torrent like this and not a nyaa.

>>2370 Actually Boost is rather amazing, both as a development approach and as a highly important library. There's simply nothing else like it and has many subsections that are the state of the art in their field. I think you just are a victim of the 'muh_C' meme, and don't really care a lot about real world performance or have little experience in large-scale development. Either way, you're wrong in my opinion. C++ is basically superior on practically every front these days, and the usefulness of C is both quite static and even diminishing. It's quite limiting. Excuse if I've misjudged you, but your demeanor certainly suggests it.
>>2372 Tangentially, if C++ STL is released by microshit, isn't it probably riddled with poocode? I could see that being a general objection to using C++ instead of C. I don't into programming, so maybe they fucked up some algorithms somewhere and it turned into bloat, regardless of Boost?

I've asked this same question on StackExchange, but instead of technical answers, I got told that my choice of words sounds arrogant. What a bunch of sensitive fucks. Does anyone here have any experience with JSONB fields in Postgres? How were they? I'm asking because I am designing a database in which I will almost always have to retrieve some massive (pretty much read-only) rows from at least three different tables. These rows will almost always have to be retrieved whole every time we access to them. That means using three SELECTs. These rows will be then serialized as JSON and sent to the client. Is it that crazy to couple all of these rows in a single table with a JSONB column? Basically, it would be a datastore for what could as well considered blobs (searchable blobs, due to the way JSONB fields are implemented, but that's besides the point because I can't think of a single usecase in which it would be necessary to search inside them).
>>2535 Don't know much about JSONB, but why don't you use a view?
>>2536 To give a bit more context: >I have been given four tables with different schemas, and a possible fifth 1:n table in the future. Two of these tables are 1:n with the users table, and two of these are 1:1. >My employers have told me to do whatever the fuck I want with the DB. All they want is a working REST API. >All of the tables have different schemas; while both 1:n tables are relatively similar, the 1:1 tables look nothing like the others. Given they are 1:1, I can join them both, but the other two still require different queries. >The 1:1 tables are 1:1 because every column represents the amount of a bunch of "products" every user has of a few select "products". That is, the meaning of these columns and the specifications of these products have been hardcoded into the client. Doesn't look very clean, but it won't make me lose any sleep. >I could make a table-per-hierarchy view for the 1:n tables, but I would still require two queries to retrieve it (and honestly, I think TPH schemes look like spaghetti, and it wouldn't give me many advantages over using the JSONB solution*) >All these tables describe "products" and how many of these products does the user have. The difference between them is the properties of the products. >Datamining the "products" would be useless for our usecase. >These 1:n tables would probably be more suited to be n:m. I can change that since we are in an early stage of development. Changing all tables to n:m and using the multi-purpose JSONB field would allow me to de-hardcode the 1:1 tables, as well as. >The server probably won't have many concurrent users, but I am not sure. >The server is in Node___ so operating with JSON wouldn't be an issue. >I have asked several friends; they told me it sounds like a bad idea even if they couldn't explain why, and then told me to use MongoDB instead. With MongoDB, the amount of spaghetti and denormalization would be even worse I still have yet to find a usecase in which MongoDB is the right choice.

Suppose I have to ask, is adept, actually useful programming something I can brute force or do I need to have natural talent? One day I'll get kicked out of my house and subsequent neethood, so I'd like to have at least some skill to take out there that will earn a living and hopefully some extra.
>>2553 Obviously some have more innate talent than others as with any area of endeavor Anon. But no, mostly programming is a skill. Skills can be learned. However the yuge majority of newfags seriously underestimate the complexity involved and the significant effort required for the average scrub to gitgud. Therefore they fall out like little faggots once the uphill climb begins in earnest. You wont be any exception to this obstacle and you'll only succeed if you have the heart to. Find something you really.fuggin.care. about, and find a way to create software for it. Or, you could just settle for writing fizzbuzz all day. :^) BTW, SICP isn't going to land you any work Anon. You should be working through Stroustrup's PPP2 first, or at the least read K&R.
Ohh, I see. Thanks very much. Do you happen to know where I can snag a pdf of that PPP2 without purchasing it? I did not find one on 8ch's pdfs programming dump thread. Sorry to bother, if it's a nuisance I can do more digging for it on my own.
>>2554 Nevermind I found one, thank you russian search engines. I'll start working through that book tonight, pretty excited.
>>2556 Alright then anon, good luck. Do the fuggin' excercises!
>>2557 Will do anon, thank you much for the advice. The pdf is too big to post here directly, so here's a mega for anyone who may also want to have it. https://mega. nz/file/oCYE0AqK#H0fPGnfJ01OC3HgCcbEuQUD8SgwGAOiGgbJqo5jO7WY
>>2553 >>2554 If you're already working through SICP, you might as well finish it. Sure, it won't land you a job right away but the stuff it teaches will still help you a lot.
>>2562 Actually, it will do more harm than good. Bjarne's take on this: >It is impossible to learn all the principles, techniques, and language facilities needed to write a program at once. Consequently, we have to choose a subset of principles, techniques, and features to start with. More generally, a textbook or a course must lead students through a series of subsets. We consider it our responsibility to select topics and to provide emphasis. We can’t just present everything, so we must choose; what we leave out is at least as important as what we leave in — at each stage of the journey. >For contrast, it may be useful for you to see a list of (severely abbreviated) characterizations of approaches that we decided not to take: >• “C first”: This approach to learning C++ is wasteful of students’ time and leads to poor programming practices by forcing students to approach problems with fewer facilities, techniques, and libraries than necessary. C++ provides stronger type checking than C, a standard library with better support for novices, and exceptions for error handling. >• Bottom-up: This approach distracts from learning good and effective programming practices. By forcing students to solve problems with insufficient support from the language and libraries, it promotes poor and wasteful programming practices. >• “If you present something, you must present it fully”: This approach implies a bottom-up approach (by drilling deeper and deeper into every topic touched). It bores novices with technical details they have no interest in and quite likely will not need for years to come. Once you can program, you can look up technical details in a manual. Manuals are good at that, whereas they are awful for initial learning of concepts. >• Top-down: This approach, working from first principles toward details, tends to distract readers from the practical aspects of programming and force them to concentrate on high-level concepts before they have any chance of appreciating their importance. For example, you simply can’t appreciate proper software development principles before you have learned how easy it is to make a mistake in a program and how hard it can be to correct it. >• “Abstract first”: Focusing on general principles and protecting the student from nasty real-world constraints can lead to a disdain for real-world problems, languages, tools, and hardware constraints. Often, this approach is supported by “teaching languages” that cannot be used later and (deliberately) insulate students from hardware and system concerns. >• “Software engineering principles first”: This approach and the abstract- first approach tend to share the problems of the top-down approach: without concrete examples and practical experience, you simply cannot appreciate the value of abstraction and proper software development practices. >• “Object-oriented from day one”: Object-oriented programming is one of the best ways of organizing code and programming efforts, but it is not the only effective way. In particular, we feel that a grounding in the basics of types and algorithmic code is a prerequisite for appreciation of the design of classes and class hierarchies. We do use user-defined types (what some people would call “objects”) from day one, but we don’t show how to design a class until Chapter 6 and don’t show a class hierarchy until Chapter 12. >• “Just believe in magic”: This approach relies on demonstrations of powerful tools and techniques without introducing the novice to the underlying techniques and facilities. This leaves the student guessing — and usually guessing wrong — about why things are the way they are, what it costs to use them, and where they can be reasonably applied. This can lead to overrigid following of familiar patterns of work and become a barrier to further learning. >Naturally, we do not claim that these other approaches are never useful. In fact, we use several of these for specific subtopics where their strengths can be appreciated. However, as general approaches to learning programming aimed at real-world use, we reject them and apply our alternative: concrete-first and depth-first with an emphasis on concepts and techniques. >PPP2 pp46-47 SICP's Abstract First approach will simply land newcomers in the Dismal swamp of meme programming as has been evidenced by years of experience going all the way back to before /g/ was a /tech/ board. PPP2 is literally the single best serious beginner's programming textbook bar none regardless of the programming language. There are much easier books to get started out with, but not any better ones IMO.
Anyone here into professional display calibration? I'm looking for good guides and equipment to get started with it.
>>2553 >>2563 >>2562 I think SICP is a good book once you know the basics of programming in some language. I would read K&R and Hacking: the Art of Exploitation first (I know Hacking the Art of Exploitation sounds like a meme book but check it out. It's really good book IMHO). There are many who say that you should not learn C before learning C++, but I disagree. Learning C is beneficial because A) it's simpler language and it has influenced pretty much all other language that have been released since its inception, and it serves as a good stepping stone. B) there is still C++ code written in a C-like style (especially in embedded systems or in old legacy projects) Programming: Principles and Practice Using C++ is a decent book, however, I don't recommend learning C++ as your first language due to its humongous size and because the C++ committee adds all the latest meme features (even if they are bad or don't fit into the language) when they are designing the new C++ language standard. C) Nowadays most C++ books won't teach you dynamic memory allocation using malloc/free. IMO, it is mandatory to know how to do it, even if you code in 100% pure modern C++ or in a language that doesn't have similar dynamic memory allocation functions.
>>2557 this always do the exercises because you won't learn anything otherwise. >>2573 also, if you are learning programming because you want some real-world skills, I suggest also learning Java (there is a lot of legacy code written in it and jobs available) and basic webshit (HTML+CSS+JavaScript) You can learn webshit at W3Fools: https://www.w3schools.com/
>>2573 Fair enough. I disagree with both your points. Muh SICP meme has never produced anything of merit. Y'know the kind of things that would actually get you a job? And muh C also creates niggerlicious devs, producing some of the shittiest code on Earth by and large, until they reach Wizard-tier and that's not for at lest 25 years steady going. But, at the least, it's better than muh SICP.
>>2575 Not >>2573 but I agree that SICP can be a good book to read after you have programmed a bit. While doing this myself I found SICP to be a neat book not really because of any must have knowledge that this book provides but rather because it's a genuinely well written book that manages to walk the line of presenting its topics with enthusiasm while not falling into the pop science group ala neil degrasse tysonor however you spell that name.

>>2583 not >>2582 but I wish there was a teaching guide into ffmpeg with how complex it is. Half of time I get confused. E.g., How do you really use masks & layers? on tweets with video, I want to layer as a still image the tweet wrapping the entire video. I know the output will be an entire video, but at the least the tweet itself would be static.
I feel like such a nigger brained retard. I can not for the life of me connect to other computers in my home to transfer or share files. I can't get winblows home group shit setup (never lets me "join" a homegroup, only create them on each PC), I can't get linux folder sharing samba shit to work. Why the fuck can't I grasp this shit? What the fuck am I doing wrong? I know this is barely any information but every video I've watched just says it "just werks" and that all you need to do is connect to the IP of the computer and it never fucking works no matter the OS or whatever the fuck I'm doing.
>>2587 Over the years, the most common cause of the problem is a shitty router. I will repeat myself: The most common cause of the problem is a shitty router. I'll say it one more time: The most common cause of the problem is a shitty router. This is ESPECIALLY true if you have a router/gateway for cable or other internet access as they are often bare minimum pieces of shit that have buffer overflow issues, terrible coding, terrible Quality Control, and most of the features that are available in the GUI simply don't work. Also, I've actually encountered ISPs that flat out ban listening for incoming data on non-standard ports for regular customers. It's some real fuckery, since you can't tell a service is entirely broken until you try to host it, and then you spend hours debugging port forwarding, only to find deep in a forum post that it's an undocumented blanket ban and NO YOU CANNOT HOST THAT VIDEO GAME SERVER FUCK YOU, PAY THOUSAN DORRA FOR BUSINESS ACCOUNT. Also, a lot of modern routers basically break local networking, and they may completely fuck up port forwarding because cable companies hate allowing customers to upload. If you have devices using wifi AND ethernet connections, make sure they're not separately subnetted (wifi devices being put on 192.168.100.X and ethernet devices being put on 192.168.1.X) Whatever piece of shit your ISP has provided you, change it to gateway-only mode (or get a specific modem for your service) and put your home network behind a decent router. Unfortunately, even decent routers are often broken pieces of shit, and networking is almost always an unreliable buggy mess. t. spent 18 hours straight trying to fix an issue with WPA2-protected bridging because the firmware on one router was flat-out broken but there was no way to tell except trial and error. I used to really like dealing with networks until it became clear that the common fuckup wasn't me being entirely niggerlicious, it was the absolute state of the entire industry. Fuck ISPs and fuck networking in general, jewish hardware run by jewish niggers.
>>2587 What the fuck are you doing? Start simple and just try to SSH from the host machine to the server. Also what >>2588 said, consumer network gear is ass. Get a router that can run OpenWRT.
>>2589 Don't forget to tell noobs that even if the router CAN run decent firmware, it doesn't mean that the hardware itself isn't also riddled with bugs and tons of features may "just not werk." As an aside, what's the new meme router that's basically an updated WRT54GL? They're rock solid even now but 54mbps is pretty slow these days.
>>2589 Also, a service might work on one port but another port or range of ports might be totally broken for various reasons of bullshit firmware, hardware or ISP fuckery.
>>2590 >what's the new meme router that's basically an updated WRT54GL Run pfsense on a dedicated server, and get an AP that can run libre firmware
>>2579 >OhShitNiggerWhatAreYouDoing.png pretty much, hence the question. don't really wanna go balls deep into the math, just need a way to check if a file has been altered by memory when moving it around. according to wikipedia even a single bit trips md5 or crc32 (what I've been using so far), just not sure if there's anything else to be aware of.
>>2588 >>2589 I just want to be able to share files between my machines over my home network. I'll look into new routers that can run OpenWRT and try fucking with my router settings tomorrow.
>>2593 This is why you don't use md5 for anything serious: https://www.mscs.dal.ca/~selinger/md5collision/ " As we will explain below, the algorithm of Wang and Yu can be used to create files of arbitrary length that have identical MD5 hashes, and that differ only in 128 bytes somewhere in the middle of the file. Several people have used this technique to create pairs of interesting files with identical MD5 hashes: Magnus Daum and Stefan Lucks have created two PostScript files with identical MD5 hash, of which one is a letter of recommendation, and the other is a security clearance. Eduardo Diaz has described a scheme by which two programs could be packed into two archives with identical MD5 hash. A special "extractor" program turns one archive into a "good" program and the other into an "evil" one. In 2007, Marc Stevens, Arjen K. Lenstra, and Benne de Weger used an improved version of Wang and Yu's attack known as the chosen prefix collision method to produce two executable files with the same MD5 hash, but different behaviors. Unlike the old method, where the two files could only differ in a few carefully chosen bits, the chosen prefix method allows two completely arbitrary files to have the same MD5 hash, by appending a few thousand bytes at the end of each file. (Added Jul 27, 2008). Didier Stevens used the evilize program (below) to create two different programs with the same Authenticode digital signature. Authenticode is Microsoft's code signing mechanism, and although it uses SHA1 by default, it still supports MD5. (Added Jan 17, 2009)."
>>2594 Don't limit yourself to just routers compatible with OpenWRT. If you have anything old and capable of running anything in this list, you should have somewhat better luck. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_router_firmware_projects Offhand, as far as networking debugging: make sure both computers are connected to the same DHCP server on the same subnet Disconnect your network entirely from the internet, drop firewalls completely on both computers, make sure DMZ is disabled on your router. See if you can ping the other computer try a traceroute if so If you're on windows, try a "net send" work from there.
>>2595 that more a security issue, since getting the same hash was done on purpose. to check if a personal file is transmitted correctly (not if it's the original file, wouldn't use md5 for that) it should still be fine unless you end up with the statistically almost impossible case where an error changed exactly the bytes needed to generate the same hash.
I just got back into IPFS after years not playing with it. I deleted my old datastore and just initilized a new one. Wonder if anyone ever actually seeded my old shit. Anyway, looking for seeders and the IPFS board is so dead it's being deleted so... Here's a fuckton of nonsense videos I've saved over the years. Seems like I need to do some organizing as I have some stray files saved in there. A lot of youtube channels I used to just download I can not anymore since the majority of the good ones decided it's a good idea to film a web video in 4K. /ipfs/QmSrmfd25MdrUh9gk7Ysz4S9oGc2BWuY28STtGXvnZZQ3k politik /ipfs/QmbemQHyg5ZmtCq8m6Js3HamsYDgc3XyRhxvpa5nTpYAuc tech
>>2593 >just need a way to check if a file has been altered by memory when moving it around Option 1: buy ECC memory, use some kind of file system with integrated ECC. It's probably overkill (you need a compatible motherboard), but it just works. Option 2: have some script that does a simple CRC on both the copy and the original file to validate things. This will protect you vs errors during copy but will do fuck all for errors due to the physical storage: given how little time the average file spends in memory vs in storage, guess which one is more likely to bite you in the ass? Knowing more about your specific use case would be useful, of course, but those are the 2 basic strategies. >>2595 Congratz on missing the point, the concern here is bitflips and not intentional attacks.
Tearing my hair out over this garbage. Getting a common CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION BSOD caused by ntoskrnl.exe on Windows 7. Memcheck found no issues, chkdsk finds some stuff to fix but never fixes the issue, driver integrity checks and all that sort of garbage never fix anything. The only thing that seems to work, as far as I can tell, is disabling virtual memory paging files and reenabling them. This seems to stop the errors for two days and then they start again. What the fuck could even be causing this garbage anymore? I've tried uninstalling programs and drivers mentioned in the minidump files and unplugging my hard drive. It might be caused by my SSD but I don't want to reinstall windows for a fifth fucking time for it to most likely give me the same nigger errors. The fuck else could be causing this shit?
Is it normal for the colors on your computer screen to look more saturated/darker if you tilt your head slightly lower or near the side? If so, how do you know which colors are the true ones? My screen is calibrated correctly so I don't think there's any issues with it. It's more obvious with images that have a transparent background.

Long ass question: Is there a definitive guide to dealing with motherboard firmware and making it not suck? AMI/Award/etc. I looked into libreboot and the installation process seems awful on the few boards it DOES work on. What's the proper workflow for dealing with this shit, is flashing with flashrom within a *nix environment okay, what are the problems with it, are all motherboards forever fucked to require using FreeDOS and the bullshit utilities made by proprietary chinks, and generally what's the current state of the newest bullshit UEFI windows-locked hardware, what's good and what should be avoided. Next, why the hell are the "warez/haxxor/drm breaking" scenes so fucking faggoty? When I discover a solution to something, I just post the result wherever I can and move on with my life, what the fuck is with these little faggots hoarding their techniques and skiddy software? Lastly, is there a community that I can browse on these issues that ISN'T full of faggots?
>>2608 >what's the current state of the newest bullshit UEFI windows-locked hardware As far as I've seen, not a single motherboard actually does this. It is theoretically possible, but I don't think any manufacturer has actually done it.
>>2611 I can't remember the manufacturer (HP, MSI, maybe Asus?) but apparently for more than a few laptops there are huge issues with UEFI and linux installs due to secureboot and other issues, especially if you want to dualboot. Desktop motherboards are largely unaffected.
>>2612 Maybe some lower-tier consumer stuff, but nothing I've seen has had any issues. Also, you should NEVER buy any consumer laptop, always get enterprise models.
>>2614 Sometimes you have to work with what's available, Anon. I love old thinkpads and probooks just like everyone else, but normalfags don't know.
>>2608 >is there a definitive guide to meet my subjective standards? No, as usual >UEFI windows-locked hardware Not a thing, ironically Microsoft was one of the few companies to bitch during UEFI standardization to make sure end users could always boot whatever the fuck they wanted. >>2612 >apparently for more than a few laptops there are huge issues with UEFI and linux installs Yes, cheap laptops cheap out on everything and aren't even UEFI compliant, so you might have trouble getting them to see a linux bootloader or even change boot priorities. You shouldn't be dual booting on such underpowered devices anyways, with how cheap physical storage is nowadays you shouldn't dual boot at all and instead should dedicate a drive to toying with linux.
>>2033 I'm a month late but someone may be interested anyway, so here we go: >I guess another way to ask what I'm asking is; when you call a method, which one is it more similar to, calling a function pointer or calling a normal function? A "normal function" is a function pointer like any other, so it's more similar to both. At best you could say that a function name is very much constant while a function pointer variable may be reassigned. A plain object method is like a function name: it can only be called and not reassigned. The big difference is that one of the arguments this is implicit. And under the hood they may have different calling conventions https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X86_calling_conventions#thiscall , which is why void Class::setX(int) and void setX(Class*, int) are fundamentally incompatible types. Even though they are byte-for-byte the same in GCC. Overloaded functions and methods are a bit different, because you can't reassign them, but the code that gets called depends on which argument types you feed it. They're effectively just syntactic sugar because you could add the argument types to the function name, like setX_fromInt_toVoid(int) and setX_fromString_toVoid(string), to split them into different function names with a single piece of code. Put differently: they're transformed to simple functions and methods during compilation. A virtual method is a whole different beast though: you can't reassign it, but the code it calls depends on which type of object you're currently using. Worse, you often can't know at compile time of which subclass an object is, so it has to be figured out while running the program. So an object has a hidden member that points to a list of function pointers: the vtable. Each subclass can override a virtual function so it gets its own vtable, but they all have the same methods at the same offset. When you have a function that gets any BaseClass object and you call a virtual doSomething(), the code retrieves the vtable for that object's class (could be BaseClass or SubClass or SubSubSubClass), takes the offset that corresponds to doSomething() and then executes that particular version. So normal function/method names can only point to one implementation. Virtual method names can point to different implementations depending on the subclass of an object, but are fixed otherwise. And function pointers are free to change. And if you're wondering, method pointers are possible but they are of limited use: https://stackoverflow.com/a/2402607 To finish it off, here's a demo of it all: https://godbolt.org/z/gg4b6g

So in he process of building a better pc to work from home on, currently when I work from home it's a lappy so not powerful enough. I do a lot of cg, texturing, modeling so I often have multiple programs open at once. My basic query though is r7 3700xk VS i7 9700k. Right now where I am the prices difference is nelegible to me, but looking at this video and some others i want some understanding of why the CPU usage of the r7 is so much less? I was considering an i7 until I saw this. Right now my laptop actually has an i7 but one of the biggest problems I have when working on the laptop now is CPU usage capping out when I have a few programs open which is sometimes unavoidable in what I do. Gaming is a consideration, but the 10or so fps difference is way less important to me than that cpu usage. So could anyone shine some light on this for me?

Trying to install wangblows 7 but have no PS2 mouse/keyboard. How can I get the installation to detect my USB peripherals? Looked around a bunch of forums only to get dead links and "just use PS2 lmao"
>>2695 >>>4/g/pcbg How did you even find this place? >>2698 Fuck off wanblow loser. Literally got solution 2 min on ddg.
>>2698 I think people these days create a new install disc with the drivers added into it.
Did nyaa.si just blocked every Tor node from connecting to their website, or is it just me? I can't access it due to 403 Forbidden errors, and switching to different nodes doesn't fix the issue (like it used to).

are there any modern laptops that have a keyboard similar to the X220 or T420? Every single fucking laptop today uses a shitty chiclet keyboard that feels like shit to type on. The ones from Purism and System76 seem really nice but they all have that fucking keyboard.
I'm installing Devuan on a Lenovo L380. Usually when I get to the part where the GRUB bootloader needs to be installed I simply select the hard drive and proceed. This time, however, the options are completely different: /dev/nvme0n1 (nvme-eui.002538b58104a515) /dev/nvme0n1p2 (nvme-SAMSUNG) I'm not about to gamble on a new $500+ brick. What's the correct way to proceed with the installation?
>>2758 It just shows you that you have 2 saparate active physical storage. >Bricking while installing grub LOL, I'm not sure that's even possible.
>>2758 Check your "mount". You can switch to tty4 while d-i is running for a shell. Run "mount" to see what is mounted where. /dev/nvme0n1p2 is probably your root partition, and /dev/nvme0n1 is your main hard drive (what /dev/sda usually is). You'd want to install to /dev/nvme0n1. But again, double check.
I have bought a suspicious new hard drive. The first time I powered it on, it already made a strange high pitched noise, like a beep. Sometimes you hear it from drives when you power them on/off, but normally not repeatedly and not as loud. Turned everything off, checked the cables, noise gone. Then I tried copying data from another HDD, after around 500GB it started to hang. Everything trying to access the disk would hang too. This happened repeatedly when trying to copy large amounts of data to the drive, but after half a minute or so it would just unhang itself and return to normal. I've run 30 hours of tests on the damn thing and the only test one that wasn't successful was the one I started while it was actually hanging. But that was in Seagate's proprietary tool that just showed some error code. Everything else seemed fine. So software seems unable to find anything because there isn't really any error, it just pauses and write speed drops to 0 while the load on the drive clocks in at 100%. This happens with every cable on every port. But only when I copy from HDD to HDD. When I copy stuff from my SSD. I can copy 600GB from my SSD and everything is fine. But try copying something from another HDD an it'll hang after 20GB. What the fuck is going on? I mean I'm going to replace the drive no matter what, how would I ever trust it, but should I return it for being damaged or just return it? And also I'm worried this is some controller fuckery a new HDD can't fix.
>>2763 drive is clearly fucked, rather than create a headache for yourself trying to figure out what's wrong with it it'd be best to just RMA it and forget it ever happened.

>>2762 I'm sorry, but how do I parse the "mount" command here? I tried looking online and I found my way into tty4, but I can't find how to do whatever command you're instructing me to. All I'm getting are the typical terminal stuff for when an OS is already installed.
>>2772 He told you to type "mount" in your command line, wow. 'tty' is lke your terminal emulator where you can switch between tty1 tty2 tty3 tty4 and so on once you invoke it by pressing ctrl+alt+F1 or F2 or F3 ect. Don't tell me you don't know how to 'lsblk'?
>>2773 I'll type "mount" in ur moms command line lmao
>>2770 Either one or more of your components, that you bought are damaged. Refund them, before it's too late.

>>2773 I did type "mount" and nothing happened. But it doesn't matter, I figured out which one it was after having to rerun the install because the machine got disconnected from the A/C adaptor. It was the non-SAMSUNG entry. >Don't tell me you don't know how to 'lsblk'? Most people aren't manual thumping autists that think forcing people to memorize a bunch of cryptic keyboard polka dances is good software design. Those of us with our heads screwed on straight just want an non-pozzed OS with good defaults so that we can actually get shit done. Now how the hell do you MAC spoof with wicd network manager?
>>2776 Found it myself: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Wicd You have to stick the following in /etc/wicd/scripts/preconnect/ as a .sh script. #!/usr/bin/env bash connection_type="$1" if [[ "${connection_type}" == "wireless" ]]; then ip link set wlp2s0 down macchanger -A wlp2s0 ip link set wlp2s0 up elif [[ "${connection_type}" == "wired" ]]; then ip link set enp1s0 down macchanger -A enp1s0 ip link set enp1s0 up fi It only randomizes the MACs and not having it built into the GUI tool is niggerlicious. But at least the fix is a simple copy & paste.
Is getting an old 80s computer like a Commodore 64, etc. useful at all to learn low level and assembly programming? Would it be any different between actually buying one or emulating it?

How do I h.264 video decoding in Cemu on Wine? Cemuhook doesn't werk anymore in recent versions and enabling DXVA2-over-VAAPI in Staging fails with libva error: vaGetDriverNameByIndex() failed with unknown libva error, driver_name = (null) even though mpv has no issues decoding h.264 video with hwdec=vaapi.
>>2798 tbh, I would just buy a calculator that has a Zilog Z80 (make sure to get one that can be programmed in asm! IIRC, TI-83+ can be used, for example) OR start developing software for GameBoy (or GB/C) Here are a few pointers: Pokemon Crystal disassembly: https://github.com/pret/pokecrystal GameBoy Assembler/Linker: https://github.com/rednex/rgbds/ (unofficial) GameBoy Docs: https://gbdev.io/pandocs/ and: https://gbdev.gg8.se/wiki/articles/Main_Page Also, this page has comparisons of emulator accuracy: https://gbdev.gg8.se/wiki/articles/Test_ROMs#Emulators_running_on_desktop_computers
