I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're refering to as GNU/Linux, is in fact, GNU/Xorg/Ncurses/Bzip/2bwm/M4/Zlib/Acl/Attr/Shadow/PSMisc/Pkg-config/File5.28/MPFR/MPC/GMP/Perl/Python/Less/Sysklogd/Init System/Util-Linux/IProute/Eudev/Procps/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Xorg plus Ncurses plus Bzip plus 2bwm plus M4 plus Zlib plus Acl plus Attr plus Shadow plus PSMisc plus Pkg-config plus File-5.28 plus MPFR plus MPC plus GMP plus Perl plus Python plus Less plus Sysklogd plus Init System plus Util-Linux plus IProute plus Eudev plus Procps plus Linux . GNU/Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU/Xorg/Ncurses/Bzip/2bwm/M4/Zlib/Acl/Attr/Shadow/PSMisc/Pkg-config/File5.28/MPFR/MPC/GMP/Perl/Python/Less/Sysklogd/Init System/Util-Linux/IProute/Eudev/Procps system made useful by the GNU/Xorg/Ncurses/Bzip/2bwm/M4/Zlib/Acl/Attr/Shadow/PSMisc/Pkg-config/File5.28/MPFR/MPC/GMP/Perl/Python/Less/Sysklogd/Init System/Util-Linux/IProute/Eudev/Procps corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU/Xorg/Ncurses/Bzip/2bwm/M4/Zlib/Acl/Attr/Shadow/PSMisc/Pkg-config/File-5.28/MPFR/MPC/GMP/Perl/Python/Less/Sysklogd/Init System/Util-Linux/IProute/Eudev/Procps system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU/Xorg/Ncurses/Bzip/2bwm/M4/Zlib/Acl/Attr/Shadow/PSMisc/Pkg-config/File5.28/MPFR/MPC/GMP/Perl/Python/Less/Sysklogd/Init System/Util-Linux/IProute/Eudev/Procps/Linux which is widely used today is often called GNU/Linux, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU/Xorg/Ncurses/Bzip/2bwm/M4/Zlib/Acl/Attr/Shadow/PSMisc/Pkg-config/File5.28/MPFR/MPC/GMP/Perl/Python/Less/Sysklogd/Init System/Util-Linux/IProute/Eudev/Procps system, developed by the GNU/Xorg/Ncurses/Bzip/2bwm/M4/Zlib/Acl/Attr/Shadow/PSMisc/Pkg-config/F

Historically speaking, corporations will only try to jew you out of your money.
And govt will try to control everything, including you, and will ruin the product.

Going to sync a 12GB or so folder between three rsync capable devices, with the caveat that only one of them has a cron daemon. Gonna run one rsync every fifteen minutes or so.

Here are my goals:
- make sure that I don't run two rsyncs at the same time if there's ever a really large change in one of the devices that needs a long update time. Honestly, I don't know how to do this or if it is even something I need to avoid.
- Inherit uid and guid of the machine being copied to. One of the devices is a non-rooted android phone. So I don't really know how that thing handles ownership for the files exactly. I want to make sure that the files I get from that are now owned by me.

alias 3sync="rsync --recursive --update --links --perms --executability \
--prune-empty-dirs --compress"

#pull changes from the two devices

#0:30
3sync $dev2 $center
#0:45
3sync $dev1 $center

#push changes to the two devices

#0:00
3sync $center $dev2
#0:15
3sync $center $dev1


Sound about right? Really clueless when it comes to this stuff.

1. mount a partition you want debian to to somewhere like /mnt/debian
2. install debootstrap
3.
debootsrtap --verbose <debian release like sid> /mnt/debian https://deb.debian.org%/debian/

4. you now have a basic debian system in /mnt/debian. chroot in, mount proc, dev and sys then
*set the root password
*create a new user
*add the new user to usual groups like audio, video, plugdev, netdev, lp, cdrom and others if you need
*set the hostname
*set up networking or install networkmanager
*set the timezone and your locale
*set up your fstab
*add volatile and security repos to /etc/apt/sources.list PROTIP: https://debgen.simplylinux.ch/

You've got some weird bottleneck elsewhere then. What level of disk I/O are you looking at on the host? Is your virtual hard disk on the same physical disk as your host OS? Are you pushing it with RAM, how much are you giving the VM? And what clock speed does cpupower report from inside the VM?

I don't understand what you mean by it can't find any governors, the governors are built into the kernel so that shouldn't be possible (if I'm understanding you correctly). But it's difficult to tell without seeing some command output. And when you say Windows is running fast, do you mean a Windows VM or your host Windows?

 compton -b --backend glx --vsync opengl-swc 


This is my compton.conf (nothing extraordinary):
https://pastebin.com/mRMgzcxr

I still get tearing, scrolling on Firefox, videos, etc.

Is there an alternative to compton worth trying or should I tweak some settings?

Now I'm not going to read that on the grounds that reading about crypto always makes me want to buy more and I already have enough. But I must say.
From the perspective of any government dependent on the power of its currency of debt, trading to and from bitcoin with that currency should indeed be made illegal from the get go. It's too late for them now though.
You see, bitcoin is so heavily deflationary in nature that one could hypothetically buy it on a loan and easily outprofit that loan just leaving it alone. Pun intended.
It's has far too much potential for disruption of the purchasing power that the loan/debt systems offer for any properly controlling government to let go.

I hate excessive control and usury as much as the next guy. Probably moreso. But outlawing its trade is logical for the sake of predictable economic peace, from such a perspective.

iirc, ubuntu touch system was mounted in read only when you opened the terminal emulator, and to be able to write stuff on it, you had to use
mount -o 'remount,rw' '/' && \

Basically, it remounts the partition with write access.
chown 'root:root' '/usr' '/usr/lib' && \
it gives the ownership of /usr and /usr/lib to the user root and group root.
mount -o 'remount,ro' '/';
remount the system as read only

You should start to learn using man pages.

I've come to the conclusion that it honestly is best if the internet is nationalized and treated as a utility at this point. Private companies can remove and edit any content they like. If they disagree with your opinion they'll just take it down, or can just replace it with another opinion that's more beneficial to them and there's literally nothing you can do. A nationalized utility is held to the standard of constitutional free speech.

>>63696286
It looks like the function causing this problem is "pe_load_debug_directory": https://github.com/wine-mirror/wine/blob/master/dlls/dbghelp/msc.c#L3390

The "page fault on read access to 0x00000008" leads me to believe that a pointer who's value was "8" was dereferenced. And as far as I can tell, any kind of dereferencing is done only on an array access to "dbg", so maybe the arguments passed to this function are messed up, or the binary's headers are messed up

ok it appears even ftp isnt that secure since passwords are stored in plaintext and firewalling is annoying. whats the best file server to set up? really its just for access to a few hard drives but this shit is so annoying to set up beyond local. samba was easy to get running but this doesnt let me do anything remotely which is what i need.

This isn't the stone age anymore anon. Do you have any idea how brainlessly simple it would be to implement automated throttling?

Don't come crying to us in 5yrs when you start seeing moronic advertisements like
>Why pay for internet you aren't using?
Until these 'custom tailored cheaper internet' packages are so mainstream that they become standard and the prices are raised up to what we're currently paying so they can offer "website bundles" like charging extra for HBO or something.
Good luck trying to convince people to stop supporting that crap and go back to buying full internet connections when they've now become impossible to afford because they've slowly raised the price of the bundles up to what we're currently paying now

You've been brainwashed by them anon. There are 3rd world countries with better internet than us.
>this will fund infrastructure improvements without increasing costs
Pretty hard to believe that argument when these ISP's literally turned down FREE HARDWARE from Netflix to improve their connection speeds.
They are not in a financial bind anon. ISP's are rolling in dough and it's not enough, they want more money and more power. Don't be fooled

You can easily do this with vsftp. You juste need to open the right ports and maybe use some dynamic DNS so you don't have to learn an IP address.

Is there an Arch linux installer? Or something like that? I have used Manjaro before, and really liked it, especially the AUR, so I want to check out the real deal... but I don't have the time to install everything from scratch.
>>
>>63705519
It takes less time than installing Ubuntu.
>>
>>63705552
I guess I can try ://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Installation_guide
it seemed a bit compicated at first sight
>>
>>63705519
Just install Antergos. It's like Manjaro but not garbage.
Installing Arch gets you only halfway to a usable desktop Arch distro. If you don't want to bother with the installation, you probably won't want to bother with the rest.
I say just skip the bullshit and install Antergos.

They're basically window managers but specifically for terminals. Scrolling, which is an oddly difficult-to-implement feature in most terminals, is possible just via those multiplexers (this is important for use with the virtual terminal before you launch X and with terminals like st).

>advantages (over your regular WM)

They're more portable. All you need is your personal .tmux.conf (and the comparable conf for screen) and you should be relatively comfy using the terminal on anyone's computer. By comparison, a switch from i3 to bspwm to MATE to GNOME and so on will be made a bit painful at every switch because you have to get used to different ways to arrange the terminals.

A really nice feature is that you can seamlessly mix windows that have a tiled set of terminals with fullscreen windows, rather than planting those sets of terminals in two or more different workspaces.

>why do I use (tmux)

I can open up a set of programs whenever I open tmux, in pretty much exactly the way I want them to appear on my screen (i.e. some being fullscreen, some being tiled). I could kinda do the same with bspwm with regards to opening those programs automatically, but I don't think I'd be able to get them all on the same workspace and appearing in the way I want them to.

>Mark Jen, the chief technical officer of a small internet provider in California named Common, which was founded last year by a group of former Square employees, said that complying with net neutrality doesn’t require any work.

>“The default configuration of all of the [networking] equipment is to [follow net neutrality],” Jen says. “While net neutrality sounds like rules and regulations, it’s actually just saying everybody has to run stuff in the default mode, which is as fast as possible and great for everybody.”

>Rudy Rucker, co-founder of another small wireless internet provider in California, named Monkeybrains, said his company hadn’t encountered any difficulties either. “Maybe there’s something I’m missing,” he said, “but it’s not bogging us down.”

>Small ISPs haven’t received the never-ending complaints some have feared.

>Peggy Dolgenos, the co-founder and co-CEO of an ISP named Cruzio that’s located in Santa Cruz, California, said her company has been rapidly improving its equipment. “We’ve been upgrading our infrastructure as fast as we can,” she says. Her company currently has 35 employees and serves about 9,000 customers. “We’ve been investing like crazy. We’re about to invest in a really big local project to install fiber optic cable in our downtown.” She hopes to start offering the new fiber service sometime this fall.

>Many smaller ISPs said they saw net neutrality as an advantage for their business, too. “If you’re looking at what companies will get paid by big providers like Netflix, it’s not smaller ISPs, it’s large ISPs who already have practically a monopoly position,” Dolgenos says. “They’ll just cement their position, and it’ll just crush competition.”

>Over 40 small ISPs wrote their own letter to the FCC last month requesting that net neutrality stay in place.

Wow.
One has to be really naïve to unironically believe the rhetoric from the big ISPs that they really need to charge extra from Netflix and if we don't repel net neutrality they'll end up charging extra from us.
What they really want in the end is just extort everyone for some extra free money.
Bastards.

On servers Alpine is getting bigger and bigger thanks to containers and it does not use GNU!

The job of the user is to create demand for services, which are provided as a product.
