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.
1) Use a live image and to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything.
2) Dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS.
3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux.

Please tell me what voodoo ritual I need to perform for mpv to display the correct fonts. I tried copying all my fonts from Windows onto Linux, I tried installing VLC (does the same thing) and I tried reinstalling mpv three times.

>video-specific fonts show properly with no extra configuration or hunting down individual fonts that need to be changed out with every new file
>people on /g/ are able to watch .mkvs through mpv on Linux and have the correct subtitles
Logic tells us that there must BE a solution, but it's apparently the most tightly-guarded secret on Earth and no one will disclose it and explain how it's done. I guess I'll learn how to build mpv and see if that does it; if not, expect more questions.

There is no sekrit club or repo that has special access. They set it them selves or they use the font embedded in the media file.

No that's normal. Select the driver you want to use and select either of the ones that start with 'from' to boot into the live environment.

You should always check the sum of an iso before using it btw. You'll know if it was corrupted or otherwise fucked with if the sums don't match.

Does mpv not set a default font, then? If it actually reads the font within the container it must not be configured to do that out of the box, because that's not what's happening for me. And I may be dense, but I'm learning.

If you follow the books to the T - none of it is really difficult, but the moment you want to customize your install or introduce some kind of package management so that updating the system is less autistic it obviously gets progressively more and more difficult.
On that note, for example, I had almost no problems building LFS with Crux's pkgutils (ripping off pkgfiles from Crux repo and combining with configuration options from the books where there are discrepancies) but any time I try to get a hardened LFS going (from combining instructions from the abandoned HLFS book, modern LFS book, wiki pages of Hardened Gentoo project that describe their toolchain and information from the actual ebuild files they utilize to build the toolchain) I always fail really hard with compile errors/stuff not working as expected.

Kind of tired of Manjaro, there's too many packages I have no idea about that are on it and it doesn't feel comfy.
I want to start fresh, but will I be considered a newfag if I use a prebuilt installer, like arch-anywhere? I've installed arch manually only using the wiki plenty of times, but don't know if it's worth the effort. Thoughts?
>>
>>59997225
for some reason archfags get asshurt when you use an installer, but arch anywhere is fine. Its finished install is exactly the same as arch, unless you pick some extra packages during install.
If you want comfort and true minimalism, pick Void instead of Arch.

Using shitty abstraction layers like the Arch Anywhere installer is the same shit as Manjaro. If you actually "needed" Arch or any other operating system, you'd be able to use it how it's meant to be used.

>too many packages I have no idea about that are on it
I suggest you go through this list so you can totally find out why they are on there:
https://www.archlinux.org/groups/x86_64/base/
According to your own words, doing anything else will make you machine not comfy. But since you're a hypocrite and you will use Arch Anywhere, you'll end up with the same "problem.

>>59997241

>arch anywhere is fine. Its finished install is exactly the same as arch
Then why do you use it? It is not the same.
It cannot cover any potential installation scenario. If you have a simple need, then it's utterly retarded to use an abstraction layer for the 10 lines you have to write.

You don't know what bloat means. You don't know what subjective means. It is simple for packagers and maintainers.

That's unofficial and not connected to the distribution itself.

>complains about no testing
>complains when packages aren't released to the main repository
Which is it hypocrite?

>>its userbase are quite possibly the stupidest and least friendly of any distro, yet they smugly think they're superior to other distros' for having completed a simple installation
It's quite ironic, because you seem to be the stupid one who thinks he's smart by parroting some already disproved "facts" about anything. This time it's about a distribution.

>>no logical policy
There is a logical. It's anything goes as long as someone is willing to package is.

>no easy way to blacklist them
Then use a different distribution, retard. Just because you don't want proprietary software, doesn't mean everyone else doesn't want to. Whom am I kidding, you're most likely using proprietary software right now which makes you a hypocrite.

The rest of your complaints are some subjective, inane bullshit that you try to pass of as objective arguments against something.

>>59997790
Systemd is larger and more complex than Runit. It has unneeded features that other software does better. That's bloat. I really don't care about simplifying the jobs of lazy distro maintainers who care more about minimising their own effort that the quality of the distro.
>testing
My point is some of the packages aren't tested enough, but some of them take too long. Void doesn't have this problem because of its competent developers.
It should be easy to make sure there's no proprietary software on the system, through a dedicated repository like Debian and Void (void has the problem of binary blobs though). I don't really care if a nonfree repo is enabled by default, just give users the choice of disabling it.
Arch is disorganised and basically devoid of global policies for the distro. Beyond the meaningless "arch way" that the developers don't even care about, there are no rules like the Debian contract. Everything in the distro is just carelessly considered "good enough".

Because it has a panel in the bottom?
Or graphical frontends for config files?
Is Ubuntu wanted to stand out, they could easily make the panel left side of the screen, use the icon only theme and make it look like unity.
They could even make the integrated toolbar thing if they wanted to make the transition normal.
Or do as Ubuntu mate which gives you several options of default looks.
Or even better, take the welcome setup tool from chakra and improve it to suit their needs.
But they probably won't as a lot of the employees were working on the software used in Ubuntu, so I guess the transition to gnome is easier.

Putting a new PC together Saturday and apparently you can't install win7 on it and I really don't want to use Win10 so it looks like its time to go Linux. I've been reading articles and watching videos for almost two weeks and I'm still having trouble deciding on what distro/DE to get. Probably xfce or kde for a DE but not sure. I don't think I want gnome or unity. I've been kind of leaning towards Manjaro but have also looked at OpenSUSE as well as Mint and Zorin is supposed to be easy to use but unsure if its actually decent. Then there is the whole systemd thing which has fucked me up and would pretty much leave me with PCLinuxOS because I don't want to fuck with slackware right away, I don't think, so I am torn.

I don't do a lot of demanding stuff. I don't play any new games though it would be nice if I could run Serious Sam and stuff like that because I like to play them sometimes but not sure if that is possible with linux.

The things I mostly use now are VLC, DC++, IRC, Newsgroups, private trackers, freenet, a comic reader, a music player, and general web browsing.

Not sure if specs matter. Its using a G4560 cpu, 16gb ram, 1x240Gb SSD, 4x8Tb HDD and 2x4Tb HDD. All WD Reds.

Don't compare GNU to Red Hat. GNU has an interest in making sure people use their tools, so that free software becomes dominant. Red Hat wants people to use systemd so that they control GNU/Linux and can make more money.

Such a system (without any GNU) wouldn't be a Linux system either. It would be a system/software collection without a name, since it's basically, like GNU, a clone of UNIX, or more of a clone of GNU (since UNIX source isn't available).
>>
Honestly though, binary blobs aren't that bad. I imagine if the manufacturer included some storage on the device, like your graphics card, to fit the proprietary firmware on, you probably wouldn't know, or even care. AMD does this, with a proprietary VBIOS, as well as other blobs in some cards. The advantage of free vs proprietary drivers is amazing though. Nouveau depends on many blobs for the cards to even load, yet has much less restrictions than the Nvidia driver (ie. Wayland support is garbage on Nvidia, and optimus actually works pretty well on nouveau.) Because people are free to modify and improve the driver itself, and work around the functional firmwares themselves.

Currently I'm using windows 8.1, but I want to make the switch to a Linux distribution. So I ordered a disk from OSDisc and placed it in my DVD drive.
Seeing as putting the disk in the drive showed me its internal files, I restarted my computer thinking it'd start the installation process for my purchased disk, but it instead took me straight to Windows.
Hopefully the screenshot provides necessary extra info.

Is it really fair to call it just Linux still? Even torvalds himself admitted that the kernel isn't even close to everything in the finished system, before he realised he could make more shekels by not calling it GNU. Your kernel can only be compiled with GNU's compilers. Even without the coreutils you probably use a few aspects of GNU userland. You probably use Glibc. Linux was missing a userland, and GNU was missing a kernel. They both combined to create something nice. Versions of Linux with just busybox are just variations on the original GNU+Linux combination. Please accept that GNU is significant to your system.
>>

Sorry for treating you a bit like a retard, but have you changed boot order in your BIOS?
>>
>>59999529
If this isn't bait:
You didn't need to pay some idiot for a disc. Just use a usb stick with Rufus to make a live usb. You probably need to go to the BIOS settings by pressing some key quickly in boot, like f10 or delete. In your motherboard manual it should say, or as it boots on the screen. Then either put the disc at the top of the boot list, or it might give you the option to manually override the order and boot once with that disc.

Ultra retard question: why can't people just decompile proprietary drivers and make there own? Is the only reason not to that it's illegal? If that would be too complex, why can't proprietary blobs be decompiled? They're only a few megabytes.

>>59999730
decompiling is not just a 1:1 translation of machine code to human readable code, you also do not get the notes that the source code would have
>>
>>59999730
You can't decompile binaries completly, however, you can reverse engineer how they communitate with other programs or your hardware and based on that, write a free replacement. That's perfectly legal.

>>59999638
I've tried several times to access the bios, but the keyboard would be disabled for some reason, and getting a new keyboard didn't help much. It also doesn't help that the BIOS I went to is very different from the traditional BIOS.

>>59999673
Well I only recently figured out that a program for writing windows compatible images works better on my system then Rufus. But for some reason after going through the installation process for a different OS (Bunsenlabbs) the only things available on boot were Bunsenlabs installation and Windows.

If you think it's just autism about a name, you're missing the point.
