Welcome to /fglt/ - Friendly GNU/Linux Thread.
Users of all levels are welcome to ask questions about GNU/Linux and share their experiences.

*** Please be civil, notice the "Friendly" in every Friendly GNU/Linux Thread. ***

Before asking for help, please check our list of resources[*].

If you would like to try out GNU/Linux you can do one of the following:
0) Install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine using VirtualBox or other software made for this puporse for safety purposes.
1) Use the Live ISO (if your distribution of choice has one) to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything, that way, you can get to experience the GNU/Linux operating system without installing it.
2) Dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS, this is recommended if you want to know more about the GNU/Linux operating system.
3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux.

ah, I got those specs from the picture of the HDD up there (the Conner CP30205). There must be other specs on the OS HDD -> google accordingly.
I won't stick around too long because these threads are circlejerks but I'm here to give you a serious answer in case you're actually curious and have not seen this before.

having old tech is /g/'s form of car stancing and /vr/'s earthbound cartridge club, they think they are better than everyone else for ruining their car, spending $800 on a snes cart without owning a snes, the variation here is buying dead computers to pretend to be old, and from the "good ol' days" of the net. I dare you to ask what year the "net became shit", you'll see variations of two whole decades and then 4 hours of infighting. Fun to watch everyone try to out-old each other by saying how shit they had it back then.

...If that doesn't work, just say it's a "hobby" while you dump thousands in it while anyone else can emulate all this stuff for free, because when you use the word "hobby", suddenly YOU are the asshole telling people not to have fun, versus a load of hipster shits making an ironic non-working tech thread on a technology board. The point of these computers is to not "do" anything or "use" them, just to take pictures of them not working so they can jerk off.

70s shits hold onto typewriters that don't work anymore and think they're better than everyone else, and this is the exact same BS just for a different decade.

the good news is that if you live in a big city, you can find businesses or thrift stores throwing this shit out because it's useless. get it and sell it to a hipster. you only have to pretend to be one of them for about 5 minutes to make the ebay post.

This cycle has been repeating itself on /g/ for about 6 times now, in a few weeks they will attract too many people and enter their "flagrant" stage where they post threads like "OLD SHIT ALLOWED ONLY!", a short time after that someone will make a private bbs/irc circlejerk and they will all disappear overnight. You'll see soon.
Fuck off.

There aren't many <5" Android phones. The Xperia Z5 Compact could work. You should probably just settle on a 5" phone. Remember that the iPhone SE has a whole lot of bezel, so something more bezel-efficient might not be that much larger.
Hi /spg/, buying a phone here.

Country: Murica
Carrier: Depends on the phone

Iphone 5S, Carrier: Total Wireless
LG G Stylo 2, Carrier: Boost Mobile

Are there any other phones?
Which one should I choose (I want latest IOS, will that work fine for 5S?)
Does anyone have some good pro-apple pastas I can use in the next couple weeks?

6-pin is essentially just 2 12V's and 2 grounds to keep the amperage in those lines at a reasonable level, molex (1 12V and 2 grounds and a 5v) times two could in theory be combined to form a 6-pin, but and this is quite big: your psu may not be expecting that much draw from those molex lines, could just poop out and trip over-current protections, or just can't deliver that much power through those lines especially if the other lines are taxed. Just get a PSU that has the connections you need, less hassle and less risk of you burning your house down or damaging your other components

>According to our sources, Apple is pondering about using custom x86 CPUs in its next iMacs and MacBooks, during 2017-2018. Nowadays it’s hard to avoid the use of x86 ISA in high end and professional personal computers, but at the same time Intel CPUs are too expensive if we compare these with ARM SoCs.

So, Apple’s target is to realize a complete x86 custom SoC family, like Sony and Microsoft did with their consoles. AMD is the perfect partner to do this.

epik meme
Owner of a day 0 Fury X here. I've had NO issues at all with my card throughout the whole time.
Sorry that your card was faulty, but don't judge the whole line on your single experience.
In all honesty. Since even Samsungs fabs are on 14nm it's not like intel has a massive advantage in how they manufacture their processors. However their CPUs are still superior in terms of total performance, performance per watt and software ecosystem in every sector except low performance mobile phones which intel won't touch with a foot pole because of the low margins.

Shouldn't there be ARM processors that are at least somewhat competitive when it comes to actually doing productive work? I mean look at the Tegra X1 which is one of the fastest ARM cpus. Even a i5 3450 from more than 5 years ago is more than twice as fast even though the Tegra X1 has eight cores.

I'm also wondering whether the manufacturers will ever agree upon a standard for booting operating systems that doesn't require kernel modifications for every SoC. This is the primary reason why old mobile phones don't receive updates anymore, the manufacturer can't be arsed to create dozens of forks for devices they no longer sell. The Cyanogen site is a good example. http://download.cyanogenmod.org/ There are so many fucking downloads because SoC manufacturers are retards.
Zen looks promising, btw. Or, the one demo we've seen shows a lot of promise. A hell of a lot of promise.

You forgot to implement Fooable

you should try assembly
The algorithm or the implwmentation? naybe start thinking about it from the base case up, really helps cause that's how the logic for proving the correctness of the algorithm goes really.

https://youtu.be/XE4VP_8Y0BU maybe?
I heard programming in assembly is hard therefor it's impossible to learn.
1. It is not a thing regular programmer would do each day
2. It's kind of unstable. I mean, it could generate different code

right, but anything above 60 will still be smoother than a 60hz monitor.
maybe your words would mean something if you didnt post anime shit
Are you fucking stupid? There's a huge difference between 1080p and 4k on my 15 inch XPS. I'm starting to throw up thinking about 1080p on a 23 inch.
yeah, i have a 27 inch 1080p and it's pretty bad. which is why im getting a 27 inch 1440p.

Not even close, the linux community has always been shit and the one with the most shills.
Ironically, the ones who shitpost telling you how superior loonix is and how shit windows/osx is tend to be the dumb, newbie ones.
I've never had linux program crash on me, but in 10 minutes of photo cropping textbook diagrams in win10 paint, it crashed twice

But lets be honest, you want to stay on win10 because you are addicted to vidya
Speaking of photos, in Windows 10 the new, awesome, magical, uwa (universal windows app or however they call their shit api nowadays) photos app doesn't allow you to see your photos full screen!

I'm not making this up, the default photo viewing program doesn't allow you to view your photos full screen (at least not without also enabling slideshow)
