Intended for users of all levels, including absolute beginners.

There are three ways to try Linux, you can:
1) Install a Linux OS on a VM (Virtual Machine/VirtualBox) for "safety purposes"
2) Use the Live ISO directly without installing anything, that way, you can get a "full Linux experience".
3) Go balls deep and overwrite everything with Linux (not recommended)

If you are serious about switching to Linux and if you have Windows dual-booted (recommended for pure newbies), we recommend you use it exclusively for 2 weeks, and avoid Windows dual booting for that period of time, or it's likely you will start retreating back to windows instead of getting used to Linux as your new home and working on making it feel the way you want it.

Before asking, please find the answers to your questions in resources.
Please be civil, notice the "Friendly" in every Friendly Linux Thread.
Understand that much of your software from Windows will be unavailable, although maybe wine can make up for it.

I don't know if this is the right thread to post this but I'm trying to install Ubuntu Server on an old Toshiba Satellite M45-S265 and won't boot from USB nor CD.

I remember that back in the day I could boot from USB using a boot manager included on Hiren's Boot CD but recently I haven't been able to boot from neither CD or USB.

Can I remove the HDD and use an external enclousure to install using another system? Any other ideas?

>>52243727
If you're trying to boot from USB, check under HDD and see if it's listed there. Also, make sure you're making the bootable USB correctly.
>>
>>52243756
I can boot with the same flash drive on a different laptop.

I cannot find anything listed under HDD, there is no list.
>>
>>52243711
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compositing_window_manager

The compositor is the program that actually does the special things listed.

At its simplest, a compositor can be useful to get rid of flickering and screen tearing. But otherwise, it's mostly non-essential eyecandy.

If you're using a lightweight DE or just a WM and are experiencing screen tearing, Compton might be for you. Otherwise, your DE probably already has a compositor, or you just don't need/want a compositor.

I'm not quite sure what all the terminology here means (I'm retarded), but it's fully installed on my thinkPad and seems to be working with lightDM.

-Trying to change out the WAD on Chocolate Doom.
-On Windows, I would have just replaced the file with the new file.
-On Linux, the WAD file is apparently located in usr/share/games, unless I have something wrong.
-Apparently you're not supposed to modify anything in usr/share

Any ideas?
>>
>>52244694
it will probably load wads from multiple places, one in /usr is often there as a system-wide option for package to use (say you install a doom wad as a package, youd want it in /usr), plus a user-specific location, like ~/.config/

i use zdoom, and it does this

How much of a placebo are all these hardenings and SELinuxes are? Not in terms of them being useless, but just having no use?
I'm not being attacked 24/7, I'm careful about what's happening on my computer, but I am security and privacy conscious. Should I go through all the asspain of all these security measures for (as I see it) next-to-zero benefit?
>>
>>52245099
They'll defend against active attacks, as well as the mass government surveillance that is going on.

You're naive if you think nobody's trying to harvest information from you. Being security and privacy conscious is an excellent thing, and these addons are an extension of that goodness.

Grsecurity wasn't that hard to install in Gentoo (hardened sources) and theoretically shouldn't be that hard to install to any distro, so long as you know how to configure and compile a kernel. It's just applying a patch.

https://grsecurity.net/

They say it better than me. Keep fighting the good fight, friend.
>>
>>52245099
Selinux comes prepackaged in at least Fedora and its derivatives, and I assume other distributions. It's solid for what it does, but it doesn't cover all the bases. Grsecurity fixes what Selinux doesn't.

Sure, I'll try out grsec.
But since they've gone "only customers get stable patches", how do I acquire them for free? Do I just go with the most upvoted grsec kernel on AUR and call it a day? I don't really wanna do any manual compilation and stuff like that just yet. But I'll try if I have to.

Hahaha. Linux users are obsessed with security because they're generally savvy enough to know what they're up against and how to counter it.

Fuckin' A, man. Even when you install it from sources you still have to configure and recompile, though.

make menuconfig
make && make modules_install
make install

Security Options -> Grsecurity

Enabling "harden module autoloading" means you have to manually set a module to load at boot as root if you want to use it as a user; this means whatever module is used to mount USB sticks and the like.

Enabling "runtime read-only" (paraphrase) makes your system write-protected.

Those are the only two I would absolutely say to not enable. Everything else read the help pages for (select option and press h)

2) Encrypt the drive.
3) Install Mint onto it, configured somehow to be able to boot on pretty much any computer I want (I plan to carry the drive with me most of the time).

What I'm asking is the following:
1) Any tips?
2) Is there any order that I must do the above steps in?
>>
>>52245545
NSA mass surveillance.
Corporate mass surveillance.

You know that botnet meme that gets thrown around here? That's not just a meme. Information harvesting is a very real, omnipresent threat. Whether you've done anything wrong or not, it's fucked up that they're spying on us 24/7.

Look at the scandal with Google sneaking microphone spyware into Chromium, their open-source browser. Corporations and Governments want our information and will find sneakier and sneakier ways to get it. Grsecurity, Selinux, browser addons, and common sense and wariness are all tools in the fight against constant infringement on our constitutional right to privacy.
>>
>>52245567
Well, you must first encrypt the drive. You can't encrypt the drive that has data on it (you actually can, but it's a fucking pain in the ass, don't ever do it).
>>
>>52245587
Ah fair enough, thought it might be referring to the 'botnet meme'. Personally not that concerned, interesting nonetheless

I moved my Windows 10 install to an SSD yesterday and today I'll install Arch through the Architect Installer on the remaining 1TB HDD. I saw some videos, but a couple of questions remain:
-Will Grub detect Windows 10 if it's on another drive?
-Will auto partition create a 1TB partition? I wanted to keep / in a 30 or 20GB partition and use the rest as an NTFS shared container. This isn't a huge deal because I can resize it later, but still.

Hi. Lurker here running dual boot Ubuntu 14.04 server on my headless Mac 1.1 through SSH and VNC.

I'm kind of a purist, and was wondering if I should bother copying the .config files (i.e. making .default versions) for things like SSH or nginx before I edit them so that I can refer to them or revert later on.

I also would like to know what you guys the best way to run multiple processes at once is. Currently I'm using xfce4 desktop :1 with a couple of terminal windows open. I'd like to have teamspeak, a teamspeak music bot, game servers, file host (already running with Samba), and nginx/php/sql (which will just run in the background anyway). Any ideas?

init scripts.
Even if you don't desire for them to start during boot, you can always start them up manually from the command line.

If you were running ubuntu 15 it would be writing simple systemd units, but ubuntu 14.04 still suffers from upstart, so dunno.

A correct answer you arrive at by guessing rather than actually proving to be true is no less correct.

The original statement was:

Just throwing this out there because it was hard to do.

I have an old iMac with 32-bit EFI and a 64-bit Core 2 Duo CPU. OS X stopped being updated for it around 4 or 5 years ago, now, so it's pretty useless as a Mac OS box.

I wanted to install 64 bit linux on it, since the CPU is 64-bit capable, but the fact that the Debian DVD and CD installers had both UEFI and BIOS boot capabilities made my mac freeze on a screen to select what you wanted to boot to. To fix this, I had to extract the ISO, remove the UEFI boot image, and re-master the ISO. To save other people with 64 bit crapples with 32-bit EFI (circa 2006/2007) from my pain, I present Mac-bootable CD's and DVD's of 64 bit Debian Jessie RC1. RC1 was a while ago, but a single apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade will fix that up.

DVD:

CD:

Apple iSight firmware file (necessary for your webcam to work in Linux, I think they all use the same firmware but just in case this is from a late 2006 17" iMac):

Enjoy. Or don't if you aren't unfortunate enough to have any Apple products.

Don't use win32-loader. Just boot a disc like everyone else. You can set up a dual boot.

Your video card drivers need updating or re-running. Run the installer or whatever you used originally to install your drivers and it'll all come back up next boot.

So I want to run some old windows 95 inside a VM, what options are there? I prefer free solutions.

BAD ADVICE

>>52251971
YOU CAN.
Run the installer from here

If you can't get it on your computer, tell me what card you have and I will give you a direct link you can use with wget.

Please avoid using the term “google” as a verb, meaning to search for something on the internet. “Google” is just the name of one particular search engine among others. We suggest to use the term “search the web” or (in some contexts) just “search”. Try to use a search engine that respects your privacy; DuckDuckGo claims not to track its users, although we cannot confirm.

Like I told that nerd at >>52252101, it seems like his Arch databases haven't been (fully) synced.

Because he's getting
>>:: nvidia: requires linux<4.3

When both
https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/x86_64/nvidia/
https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/i686/nvidia/
have "nvidia requires linux>=4.3".

Apparently I hacked pacman.

>>52252888
think it might be E12. I'm going to verify when I go to a store. Thank m8

>>52253156
See what pacman -Syu tries to update. Take a screenshot or paste what it says. Obviously, you can just say "no" when you get to the confirmation prompt.

I'm using Xfce; is there any potential harm in me deleting everything inside ~/.cache./sessions ? I'm doing this because I saved the session one time like a week ago but it still reverts back to that saved session on restard even if I don't have the box checked anymore.
>>
>>52253233
And those are exactly the packages that should be expected to work with each other.

IMO, you should be able to install them and everything should hopefully work.

I have no idea why nvidia wasn't upgraded with the kernel beforehand.

If you still have problems, it's more likely than not nvidia's fault, not the kernel, so you shouldn't have to downgrade.
>>
>>52253331
I had to remove nvidia driver before kernel downgrade because dependency.
After that I just installed newest possible from pacman cache.
Maybe I just must wait for another update or something.

well that was fun, I'll go back to my normal kernel then.

reboot
>>
>>52253307
sudo apt-get install libevent-pthreads-2.0-5
>>
>>52253615
No but seriously. I mean, task manager's an OPTION, I guess, but that's hardly ideal when a two-key stroke would kill almost any hanging program.

If you have a pause/break key on your keyboard still, I guess ctrl+break works, but it should be possible to use ctrl+c for it, or some other shortcut failing that.

I use linux about 98% of the time, the other 2% is windows 7 and XP.
