Question.

I'm looking at an integrated stereo amp that has a built in DAC, but connects via SPIDF. Am I correct in assuming that just using the onboard SPIDF out (Realtek, BTW) is fine since it's digital? That I don't need to bother with a USB DAC or a dedicated sound card?

Hmm, I was under the influence that it was, my bad. I still like it a lot better than OpenWRT.

>>47246293
RouterOS is based on Linux. They just make all the goodie addons proprietary.

You might like pfSense. Most mature software firewall/router that is entirely open source and doesn't put features behind a paywall.
>>
>>47246314
Yeah, I've used it and it's definitely solid, I just wanted to try something all in one and this turned out to be a success.

Huge as you could build one with better hardware and faster specifications all around for a third of the price.

The 5K display is glorious but if you're going to get it you should spend more and get the 4GB R9 M295X.

only reason to buy that would be for the 5k screen

>>47246208
Ask yourself one thing, do you really need a 5K screen? And even if you did, can you make the most out of it with an all-in-one?

I never understood why people would de-lid their CPUs with a hammer. just offset one side and let the vice do it. no fling parts, no scratches, just make sure you dont use the vice to compress the heat spreader.

how many of you have de-lided? horror stories?

Trying to shrink my root partition, it's lvm and currently on a livedisk and running:
e2fsck -f /dev/lvm/root
gives a bad magic number in super-block error. I know the drive works seeing as I use it regularly.
>>
>>47246334
sorry bruh, you can't manipulate a mounted file system/partition
you'll have to boot up a live gparted or any live distro really will have the tools you need
>>
>>47246334

It's activated, right?

> lvchange -a y /dev/lvm/root

(This operation is harmless, it's okay if you run it on an activated volume).

Assuming it is, try specifying an alternate superblock. Try something like;

> e2fsck -f -b 32768 /dev/lvm/root
>>
>>47246356

a) Yes you can (it's just not a good idea).
b) He already said it's on a livedisk
c) Even if you couldn't, it's just a jail creation + pivot_root /dev/shm away.

It's for people who don't need that functionality.

They also like using Rhythmbox, which is FOSS so if you're interested in aesthetics you're going to be even more bothered when you try an interface the equivalent of that iPod ripoff someone gifted me in 2005.
>>
>>47244616
Why do I need album art, even in a normal music device?
Why would I edit tags on my device?
Why do I even need a screen save for very basic functionality? I'd prefer minimal over bloated, over-designed, and pointlessly flashy wastes of resources.
OTG is pointless because the device can simply have a male-male auxiliary output if you so desire it. Why do you value USB OTG, if I may I ask?
I don't need live scrobbling. Nobody does. If the scrobbling didn't work (it does), who cares? It's wasteful and for people absorbed in the culture of social networking and sharing.

>hipsters
Hipsters don't buy Sansa clips; only poor people and psychotic lumberjack Linux/Unibomber guys like those on this board love it. People who appreciate elegant cheapness and self-hating, technophobic technophilia.

Dose /g/ invest in buying old computers? if so what do you guy's recommend? been looking at some old powermac g4 or g3's that may go up in price in a decade or two
