I'd say you should install Arch a few times to understand what's really happening under the hood before you decide to go with dual booting, you might (willl) fuck up if you don't know what's happening and the dual boot options in graphical installers aren't really helpful

>>64721756
It's exactly the same from my point of view.

As far as I can tell the only appeal is really on the developer side, and for the very reasons neovim was created to begin with: to clean up the codebase and make it easier for developers to make updates/improvements in the long run. Which one we should use probably won't be obvious for years, until we see if the plan worked and neovim gets more updates, or if it dies and normal vim gets more updates.
I don't think "neovim vs. vim" is really a thing. At least not yet.

This might be the wrong place for it but I figured if someone would know it'd be here. My systems programming course this semester is demanding that everyone does their work on a mac since they needed a reason for the compsci students to use the mac labs. This wouldn't really be a problem but OSX has certain system calls that aren't quite the same as linux ones, which is a pain in the ass because I lose a ton of points on assignments because my shit either doesn't compile or gives a ton of warnings. However, while digging through manpages for an assignment I noticed one of them had a reference to BSD on the top right, and the /g/ wiki said OSX was built on openBSD.
So I'm wondering if I could just install openBSD on one of my old laptops and just compile shit there. Will that introduce any other issues I haven't seen? Hoping someone has experience with this.
>>

If you weren't aware, clover os is basically gentoo. Go look up how to install it on gentoo. And when you can't find shit about gentoo either then use the arch wiki.

>>
>>64724099
ostensibly nothing
I have no idea if any of these represent actual problems
my main concern is that my system is spitting out 25 errors every boot and either something is broken that I haven't noticed yet or maybe some things aren't working as well as they could be, or that maybe if the boot process went smoother it could be quicker (but that's probably a stretch)

I've already found out that at least 2 of those (i.e. the only 2 that I've looked into so far) are systemd bugs which the developers are committed to not fixing, and I suspect that might be the case for most of them

if any other anons want to post the output of
journalctl -xb | grep -E "[Ee]rror|[Ff]ailed" | wc -l
I'd be curious to see the results

Question regarding LUKS:
I have an encrypted root partition and also an encrypted data partition that gets decrypted/mounted automatically on boot via /etc/{crypt,fs}tab. Is it necessary to use an increased --iter-count for the key of the data partition? This increases my boot time by a few secs, which is a bit annoying, since the root partition already requires a few secs for mounting due to its own increased --iter-count. The key which is being used is 4096bits long (if that makes any difference here, probably not).

No

Dear Arch masters,
I fucked up displays in Xfce (I chose to use external display only, later I disconnected the external display so laptop shows nothing now), but TTYs seem to work fine. (I use Ubuntu, not Arch, dear Arch haters)
While I restore displays, could you tell what programs I can use with framebuffer and TTY (or give a link to the page with such programs) for RTF editing, image viewing, PDF/DjVu reading, multiple "windows" of terminals on the screen (I only know GNU screen), locking the screen?

Pls no bully for botnet phonepost but I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong here and I figured you guys probably know best on /g/ about Linux shell errors.

Basically what I'm trying to do is uninstall a package to disable RCSService which is currently raping my battery. The pajeets on XDA said to use the last command I used in the screenshot to uninstall it but it throws that shitfit you can see. Even "pm list users" isn't working, desipite all these commands working properly for the pajeets. What retarded thing am I doing wrong?

Only things I can think of is I'm using a terminal instead of ADB, but ADB is just a remote shell link right? Also I'm rooted and the pajeets probably aren't, that shouldn't make a difference because I tried them with and without su.

So sorry for Android post but hoping some wizard here can identify my mistake.

The problem was your compositor not your driver. Compiz (compositor on 16.04) should do well. Maybe tweak the configs a bit, there are guis for it. In any other distro use compton. Wayland should solve the problem as well (if nvidia drivers already support it).

Its completely virtual, you have dom0, and some groups of machines separated by colors (safe, not safe, work).
when you run a program, its just the minimum of it, and the components are also separated and run in another virtual windows, i would like to explain but also myself i didnt know what i was doing.
I'm a brainlet it's easier for me to use virtualbox. But someone who knows fedora and want full virtualisation will like qubes.
Also no screen tearing, but slow as fuck (obvious)

Why is the default behavior for
pip install
to install to system directories, instead of user directories? I don't really see the point, if it's going to reject your access anyway without sudo (and installing things with sudo pip sounds like a very very very bad idea)

When I want to install something python related I always try my package manager first, and then if it's not there, I use the --user flag. Just wondering why --user isn't default, and if there's any case where you would actually want to do sudo pip.

If it's laggy on boot it's because you need to use this command

Can you go into detail on how nVidia's drivers are 'bad'? They don't support Wayland very well, and that's a WONTFIX as far as both parties are concerned.

So no, you weren't talking about BIOS, but about UEFI. Please be more clear in your language if you expect accurate help. And yes, that's expected behavior. You need to reinstall GRUB to UEFI every time you update UEFI. Have you tried leaving your fucking firmware alone?
>>
>>64733713
They are very similar. Both are unix-like. The difference that usually gets more attention is licensing, GPL vs BSD.

There are design differences that sometimes make one or the other more suited for certain tasks.

If you know one learning the other is very easy. Almost like changing distributions.
>>
>>64733764
>So no, you weren't talking about BIOS, but about UEFI. Please be more clear in your language if you expect accurate help.
Given that every single motherboard manufacturer calls it "flashing the BIOS," calling it UEFI updating would actually be more confusing.

Thanks. What tasks does GNU/Linux do better and what tasks does BSD do better? Also, why is GNU/Linux more popular than BSD now that the lawsuit is settled?
>>
>>64733955
The Sun lawsuit? It didn't matter much, GNU-linux was already more popular.

There really wasn't a very specific reason. GNU-linux had more momentum and the free software movement behind it. GPL makes it more convenient to commercialize than BSD. You can't simply add you proprietary API to someone else's software and distribute binaries only (Apple I'm looking at you). Linux (the kernel) sparked a more open community while BSD was restricted to academy(for historical, not technical reasons).

They are usually better than the other at very specific tasks. For example:
NetBSD strives for code correctness and good design principles, by doing this it's easily portable. In my personal experience it has been useful for using IPv6 over serial(USB) which doesn't work on GNU/Linux.
FreeBSD is famous for doing very well in commodity hardware at *very high* network request rates. ZFS works better on BSDs due to license problems with linux.

GNU/Linux has *much* more developers so many things are not so good on BSDs if they exist at all. It also has a greater variety of software, albeit porting it to BSD is customarily easy.
>>
>>64734254
>GPL makes it more convenient to commercialize than BSD.

Wouldn't it be the other way around?
>>
>>64734408
No. On GPL other people can't add a proprietary API to your software, distribute only the binaries and steal your market.
If someone gets your GPL software, adds a feature X and resells you can just get the source code from them and add the feature X to your version too.
>>
I'm going to make a successor to CloverOS based off of GuixSD with the Linux kernel, wifi working out of the box, and proprietary video drivers.
Someone make the logo.
>>
>>64734408
I will give a more concrete example.

macOS is derived from FreeBSD. Apple got, and often still gets, software from the FreeBSD project, make modifications and redistribute is as mostly proprietary software.
If they had tried that with GNU/Linux, they would not be allowed to redistribute it as proprietary software. So people would just get the free source code from macOS and port back what was of interest to other GNU/Linux distros. No one would be a slave of apple.

Yes, it is very advantageous of Apple stand point, but not from the FreeBSD project stand point. There are not many commercial incentives to license your software under BSD in the first place. Basically the only one is if you want your technology to be adopted as fast as possible.

Note: Apple does release the source code of some of its software through the OpenDarwin project (Darwin being the name of the iOS, OSX and macOS family). But they are not legally obligated to so, as they would be if the software originally was GPL.

Well some stupid ass reason I had the win7 mbr partition on a different drive to my win7 install. My case only has spots for 3 3.5" so I took my vidya drive out to install gnu/linux on a new drive, then i swapped the mbr drive with the vidya drive to boot into windows and play vidya.
>>
>>64735572
And now I can boot into Windows fine

Thanks for the help lads I was ready to repair windows then reinstall grub from a live cd, but lucky I decided to stop and think

Fuck Nvidia. As long as you have AMD firmware in the default kernel build you're fine.

man I should really just take the gentoo pill but I can't be bothered. Back to manjaro I go I guess. Artix works flawlessly on my thinkpad

how recent the packages are. Debian and Ubuntu LTS 16.04 are old but very stable. The newer software you want, the less stable the distro will be. Arch is naturally the newest. I'm thinking of using Fedora, seems like a solid balance between new and stable

What's some good FOSS circuit design software? I don't need anything really advanced at the moment, I mostly just need to layout some schematics without having them look like they were drawn in paint.

I would like to use fedora but it would be embarrassing to say that I use an alternative operating system with that name.

I've had this problem and didn't find the answer online, what solved it for me was to add -libffi to llvm's package use flags.

What are the advantages of Mint over Ubuntu and other Debian bases distros, i recently went from Ubuntu to Mint and I've found boot and shutdown Is way faster but i'm kinda bummed Mint is lts only since mate has got great recently
>>
>>64736581
currently what I am using
I wish they wouldn't drop mate support eventually, but they've made up their mind.
That's why I asked earlier about debian, parabola, and arch.
>>
>>64736581
There aren't any, really
And the devs are hacks
>>64736601
Install Ubuntu MATE then?
>>
>>64736621
yeah but.
no
>>
>>64736631
Why?
>>
>>64736638
I don't want to use distros with systemd. I like mate, but I sort of like the way stock xfce looks better anyway.
I'm not skilled enough to rice my desktop yet.

I use Redshift because it looks comfy at night, but it seems to be causing Cinnamon to crash randomly.

Tested with two installs
1. Linux Mint Cinnamon, Redshift
2. Manjaro Cinnamon without Redshift

Any solution to this? Or is there better alternatives to Redshift?

NTFS reading was mainlined in ye olde 2.x days. What you're looking for is the ntfs-3g module usually packaged separately.

>>64737350
start with something totally basic like Xubuntu

MATE 1.20 is out with mostly working hidpi support. Please try it if you have a hidpi monitor and help squash bugs. If we can get those last few bugs squished in time for the next round of distro releases it'll be a solid option for newbies. It's already MUCH lighter than GNOME or KDE on my lower spec rMBP.
>>
>>64737714
Xubuntu comes batteries-included, Debian takes a little work. I like to replace half of the default applications.

>>64737808
>lighter than GNOME or KDE on my lower spec rMBP.
can't tell if this is satire
>>
>>64737849
It's not. GNOME idles at ~1GB out of 8GB, MATE idles at ~500MB and with less load on the GPU. KDE is about halfway between on both measures.

Nemo has trouble with MTP devices. It takes ages to open a directory with a lot of files and it becomes unresponsive.
Is this a common symptom with the MTP library or is it Nemo specific? Does anyone else have that or is it just me?

>>64737895

Just tried Caja and it has the same issues. Is the MTP implementation really that bad or is MTP bad itself? This is really annoying.

>>64737696
>ntfs-3g
Yeah, I was looking to set up an NTFS partition to mount in fstab on a raspberry pi but for some reason it doesn't the read only NTFS support so I went with that. I was originally thinking I wouldn't need it. Thanks though.
>>
>>64737930
MTP is garbage, mostly thanks to shoddy device side implementations. Thanks Android.

I'm not convinced. It hasn't imploded and drastically failed at any point yet.
