How the hell do you come up with a great startup idea? I have a few, but they always seem to have been done (poorly at least) before.

>>63420773
The idea doesn't matter. I guarantee most of the startups over in the west coast know they're not going to be making money for at least a decade but they're still getting investors because they know the right people and they know how to sell the idea as if it's something original.

If you want a great idea make a good product. I recommend toys for autists, it almost always works. Perhaps it's time for a mainstream yoyo revival, it was kinda hot in the east coast in the mid 2000s and many times before then.

Both approaches work.
Selling fried air works, makes you earn a lot in the short term, until too many people realize there's no substance behind the smoke.
Selling good products works because it satisfies a need, even with bad PR if a company needs something and you have the tool that does it, you sell.

Comparing voltages between vastly different processes is also stupid.
GF 14lpp is very different to Intel 14nm+/14nm++
GF 12lp /should/ (according to glofo) scale as well Intel 14nm+ (but not as well 14nm++, which will be the default for Intel desktop until 2021 sometime) Expect ~4.8 from 1.4v on Ryzen 12LP.

Intel 10nm won't be any good scaling, (they're expecting <3.6ghz) they've already said as much during the last investor day, 10nm+ won't either, 10nm++ will be the next desktop node. That's not a huge problem, 14nm++ scales very well and 10nm/1-nm+ will be monsters for notebook (if not on 10nm, definitely on 10nm+ we'll see 6c/12t <25w ultrabooks)

Future is looking neat finally.

If you cooling is OK it should work. VRMs will degrade quicker if they run to hot, the CPU itself barely takes any damage unless it runs at 90°.

You can overvolt like shit, your parts will still last longer if you run them watercooled, than having a stock clocked processor with a boxed cooler.

QVL is what the manufacturer has tested, not every kit that is supported.
If you use RAM that hasn't been tested there's a chance that it won't run at full speed, which happens often enough on Ryzen.

configure: error:

Are you using -Llibdir as actuall "-Llibdir"? -L specifies a path where the the linker can find libraries.

That's a shitty error message and it really doesn't help but neither does LDFLAGS=-Llibdir.

Does it have any output that looks like

So, I need to specify an actual path name? Is libdir just a generic name then?
Most of my output is:
checking ____ .....yes

but there's a few 'no's such as:
checking winsock.h usability... no
checking winsock.h presence... no
checking for winsock.h... no
checking io.h usability... no

>>63425899
Yeah, it's generic name. Imagine it say -Lfoo or -Lbar. Beyond useless.

What are you compiling exactly? It seems all wrong:

>protobuf test program failed to link

A configure script(usually created by autotools) should not ever try to link a library. It might error and tell you that x library doesn't seem to be available but you just received the most useless configure message I've ever seen.

It's almost windows "something happened" tier. At the very least, it could allow the compiler output to see which linked functions are missing(undefined reference) but usually would tell you wihat library it's expecting.

Read the README/INSTALL files(if available), if it's not in there drop that shit.

I'll get to the punchline. I've got a lot of data, intend to get a lot more, and have come into possession of a load of hard disks. I was hoping someone could advise me on how best to set this up, namely how many RAIDs, which disks, and what levels.

I have 14.5TB data in total - the most sensible way to split it up is 8.5 and 6, but the subfolders split something like (3.5, 1.5, 1, 3, 5.5).

My disk layout is:
* Seagate Desktop: 4TB, 4TB, 4TB, 4TB, 5TB
* WD Red (7200rpm): 6TB, 6TB
* WD Gold (7200rpm): 6TB, 6TB
* Seagate Enterprise (7200rpm): 6TB
* Seagate Archive: 8TB (PMR, so probably not suitable)

The best idea I've had so far is to hook up the 4x4TB disks into a 12TB RAID-5, and one of the two parts I mentioned earlier could go there comfortable expansion room; but from there I'm not sure what would be best - i.e. how best to utilise the set of 6TB disks. Maybe I could hook the 5 of them together into a 24TB RAID-5, then maybe later add a final 6TB disk to up it to RAID-6?

Of course I could also use ZFS, but learning curve and RAM utilisation aside (I'm running on a pretty low powered board), I'm keen to not be too "locked down", i.e. it should be easy to set the same disks up again elsewhere if I need to.

RAID IS NOT A BACKUP

Don't make the mistake I did last year. Bought one of those "4 bay sata drive e-sata/USB3" DAS boxes. At the time I was like "hell yeah this way I can reuse two old 1tb drives and still have 2 free bays and it look kinda clean". Biggest pile of shit there ever was, see I was stuck with USB3 cause mobo don't support the port multiplier that e-sata requires (I'd only see one drive, instead of 2 or all 4). So I'd be transferring data, all of a sudden the device lost connection, reset itself. Did this a few times, finally I got fed up and did some research. Seems that when using USB 2.0 cable, the box works like it should, when you use a USB 3 cable, it acts like shit despite the device supporting USB 3. Course if I used USB 2, data transfer rate would fall into the toilet. Said, Fuck that, and sold the sucker to a friend (he didn't care about it's defects)

Make sure your server case has plenty of cooling for the drives. Drives generate lots of heat, get really hot when they spin all the way up/work hard.You'll defiantly notice this when you go to perform a full drive image backup. More drives you add, the more heat get's generated.
