Remember that Alpine is not a GNU/Linux distro, but a Linux distro.

Intended for users of all levels, including absolute beginners.

There are four 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) Dual-boot Linux with Windows/Mac (recommended if you want to learn more about Linux)
4) Go balls deep and overwrite everything with Linux (not recommended)

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.

SELinux or RBAC?

I'm doing SELinux right now because I'm used to systems with it and don't really want to go to the effort of configuring RBAC.

On the other hand, RBAC is part of GRsecurity and SELinux was authored by the NSA and is complicated enough that backdoors could easily go unnoticed.

Should I bother?

That's what I was thinking. And in my googling I found an argument that the NSA wouldn't backdoor something published under their own name, they'd make fake github personalities to insert backdoors so that if they are discovered they can't be traced.

I think that's flawed because the NSA doesn't give a shit if people know they're spying and people don't give a shit about being spied on, but I'm willing to accept SELinux as secure anyway.

I did both of these, one after the other, in my linux admin class.
It broke the everything.
I asked the instructor for the recovery disc so I could start over. He told me no, I should fix it.
So I spent tree days doing a directory-by-directory comparison of my broken server with the functional workstation, correcting ownership and permissions.
I was finishing up and mostly okay when he asked what was taking me so long. I told him and he cussed me out for not telling him exactly what I did sooner so that I could reinstall.

I swear I added Firefox to the list of ignored packages in pacman.conf and checked the packages I was updating today but it still went past and now I'm stuck with the shitty gtk3 file selector with no thumbnail viewer again. The only way I was able to downgrade last time was by completely recompiling the old version against the newer libraries, and that was a huge pain.
If I'm going to have to go through that shit again, would it just benefit me if I tried switching to Gentoo, or is there a good alternative to Firefox that supports gtk2 I could use instead?

There's a program called synergy that lets you share one mouse and keyboard between multiple computers, even if they're not running the same operating system. The mouse will move from screen to screen, once it's properly configured, just like it would on a multi-monitor set up.

However, the computers do not recognize each other's displays as displays, and as such you can't drag windows back and forth. The operating systems and all of the things running on them will still be separate.

You might be able to connect to a second X session on one computer from the other via VNC and have two X sessions on the same computer visible at once and sharing a mouse and keyboard, but you still wouldn't be able to drag windows back and forth. I don't know of any software that you could use to achieve that.

I've run gentoo in the past but I want something with reasonable install procedures. I'm used to ubuntu based stuff right now. Can't really say I have a compelling reason to try something else other than to scratch an itch, know what I mean?

So, what should I do?

>However, the computers do not recognize each other's displays as displays, and as such you can't drag windows back and forth. The operating systems and all of the things running on them will still be separate.

True, and anything else would be bad since they're different environments anyways. I only use the laptop to display documentation so I think your alternative works well.

major de's like gnome3 and kde have proper multi monitor support
among those more lightweight ones MATE is the way to go (XFCE's multi monitor support is nigger) since it's a fork of gnome 2, and works okay.

From tiling WM i know of, i3 was sort of created with multi-monitor setups in mind, and yes they work sort of okay though you have to configure it first.

Pick whatever distro you like, but guessing from the amount of displays you're running a discrete GPU, and that's always a problem on Linux. So *buntu LTS or Mint, since they require the least amount of fucking around with proprietary GPU drivers.

I'm paraphrasing a sentiment from X years ago.

Since you seem to want articulately expressed coherent thoughts, on goddam 4chan of all places, here:

Ghetto refers to a lack of organization within an organization in doing the things they are organized to do. Support is ramshackle at best, consisting of a patchwork mess that can barely be called a wiki. And you will need support because it would be an understatement to say that packages are not well curated. In short, a complete lack of quality and completely dependent on the willingness of the user to make it work. See also "Jury Rigged", "Nigger Rigged", "Good enough for government work"

I got ballsdeep and deleted Windows and replaced it with GNU/Linux about 6 months ago.

I was so pissed about Windows, it felt like shit and it's just not good.

With GNU/Linux I do have much problems but it's always a good feeling when you solved it.

So learning GNU/Linux is pain and fun.

Does at least one mpd client have a decent queue? You know, like in cmus or foobar2000, you put a song in there it plays right after that, and then returns to playing from the place it left off/goes on through the playlist from the last song in the queue.
I often make prebuilt playlists and play them in order, and then like to inserting other songs in the middle of it depending on the mood. foobar was ideal for that, because I could make two parallel playlists, make one of these for some particular artist, another for random stuff I feel like listening to, and jump between with them with the queue with relatively little problem. cmus was harder because it always returned to the same place in the playlist after it finished with the queue, which is not always what I wanted. On the other hand, mpd at the moment (tried working with mpc and ncmpcpp) seems to have no easy queue functionality that would allow such behaviour, priorities being theoretically powerful but really unwieldy and ignored in mpc.
The point is, I think of building a custom script that would create such a functionality through hacks with priorities, and I need to know if I missed something or there is already an alternative, to make sure I'm not reinveinting the bicycle.
Any help?

Because there is more than 1 installer disc in case you want to offline install a load of extra shit.

Sounds like debian is looking for another disc in the set, which you don't have. It defaults to look for these so you don't redownload shit you may already have on disc.

>but why cant it just download the missing stuff like some other things?
Because that could involve downloading gigabytes of data you already have locally. It's stupid that there's not a nice option to just force repo download, but that's apt for you.

Like >>52453204 says, remove the source (by commenting it out or deleting the line).
You could mount it, but since the ISO it's looking for is from September the packages are probably already out of date, so you may as well just download from the repos

Unless you want to come across this very same problem every time you try to install something else that is on that USB drive and have to remount again,
then you should just remove the DVD from /etc/apt/sources.list

I believe the logic behind leaving it there is you're meant to use the netinstall ISO if you want to download the latest packages, and you use the full ISO if you want to offline install everything from the DVDs.

>>52453538
I can guarantee this is going to bite you again if you don't comment out the DVD source.

Arch used to be more unstable because settings and configs of all sorts would reset after upgrades. Arch has gotten better at merging settings, so it's more stable now.

Try alt gr + shift with the backslash/pipe key instead. For some reason they're switched around in linux.

There are actually a lot of 4th level characters you can get to using shift + alt gr, have a look under region & language -> input sources (assuming gnome).

Odd that it only works with left shift, I can use either in my VM.
I was going to look up changing it but it seems to be a real pain in the ass. It is doable though, you'd just have a custom keyboard layout rather than stock UK.

On fedora that's easy.

You just add
--exclude=kernel*
at the end of "dnf upgrade" command.

If you never want to upgrade the kernel edit /etc/dnf/dnf.conf
and add
exclude=kernel*

at the end of the file

Bear in mind Fedora always keeps the current AND the previous kernel versions, so if a kernel update niggers something up (which has never happened to me, and i run it since fedora 20), you can still boot the older, working kernel in order to make fixes to your system.

Why isn't Mint heralded as the best distro? It seems the most convenient - that is, unless you enjoy the extra work.
>>
>>52457215
>>52457095
You can do with it any package you like, so for example if for some reason you don't want to update firefox, just put --exclude=firefox
>>
>>52457043
the best one is probably the one in blender (not memeing) but kdenlive and pitivi are probably more easy.
>>
>>52457224
well, it uses apt
>>
>>52457224
because it takes like a minute to do these things on pretty much every other distro if you know what you are doing. i agree that mint is the best for new users though.
>>
>>52457254
Ah, well I definitely don't. Got it
>>
>>52457224
>>proprietary drivers installed automatically
it doesn't do that silly, no distro does that because proprietary drivers are broken by design and could cause problems during installation
>>
>>52457215
>>52457236
Thanks. Works perfectly. I'm going to hold off on 4.5 for a few updates. 4.4rc8 is perfectly stable for me.

I'm installing arch right now but can't decide on a DM.
What's a good one to use?
>>
>>52457320
lightdm
>>
>>52457144
>>52457237
The three I have seen mentioned the most on the internet are: Lightworks, Pitivi, and Blender.

I am going to try the first two. Blender would be cool, but the learning curve is just massive. While I also want to get into 3D rendering, I am just not ready for that.

>What's the difference between Ubuntu and Mint?
Repositories.
Mint REALLY loves to put random patches and small changes into their packages. See for example the shit they pull with Firefox.
This is not a good thing, and can end up causing problems down the line, especially if you install anything from outside the official repositories.
Ubuntu generally does not have these issues.

What would be different if Hurd took off with the same momentum that Linux did? Would the microkernel architecture of Hurd allow it to scale and be developed as efficiently as Linux's monolithic (?) approach?
>>
Can someone please explain the difference between /bin, /usr/bin, /usr/local/bin ? Where to place the files the correct way?
>>
>>52446468
Arch is a little time-sinky, but the fact someone had the time to bother making this image is pretty sad
>>
>>52457478
depending on the distro it's either according to
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Filesystem_Hierarchy_Standard

or /bin is a symlink to /usr/bin
>>
>>52457478

>>
>>52457478
I have a simliar question!

Can someone please explain the difference between

~/.apprc
~/.app/apprc
¨/.config/app/apprc
/etc/app.conf
?

Where to place the files the correct way? Would be nice to have all configs follow the same rules ... why is this chaos even a thing?
>>
>>52457449
it could but i don't think it will because all of the linux investors will see it as competition.
>>
>>52457562
>~/.apprc
>~/.app/apprc
>¨/.config/app/apprc
this is a preference of the user or the programmer

>/etc/app.conf
this is a global configuration that gets overriden with user settings
>>
>>52457576
well, I wasn't really talking about it overtaking the modern Linux. That is very improbable.

I was asking more about how the different architecture of Hurd would have affected the GNU userland if it was completed and widely adapted before Linux

tl;dr what would be different if it was GNU/Hurd instead of GNU/Linux, considering all other factors stayed constant?
>>
>>52457623
So I can just put all my configs into ~/.config/ and the program will regonize it?
>>
>>52457653
No.
Some programs don't follow the XDG Base Directory Specification (~/.config)
>>
>>52457653
If it has been told to look for configuration files in this location, then yes it should.

Look up the program's manpage
>>
>>52457627
so you are asking about micro kernel vs. monolithic kernel?
HURD would win in everything but performance against linux if development was the same on both sides. there are some actually useful explanations on stack exchange.
>>
>>52457767
will go look. Thanks

I'm thinking about switching from Debian to Fedora, but my memories from Fedora are haunted with old packages. Do I remember this wrong?
>>
>>52457792
yep.
Fedora is not arch-tier cutting edge, but it's fairly recent.
debian-testing tier maybe?
>>
>>52457792
you have to keep upgrading fedora for the newest packages
>>
>>52457827
>>52457792
debian testing tier pretty much fits.
>>
>>52445988

I used the wget command in my terminal in Ubuntu for 'www.google.co.uk' to test it out. Now it keeps downloading the webpage and creating a directory of the same name. Even after I delete it, it reappears. How do I stop this from happening?
>>
>>52456704
loving my decision to switch more and more.
Right shift works now. I think I'm used to hitting shift first. My pinkie reaches that before my index reaches alt gr.
>>
>>52458029
ctrl+C?
>>
>>52457402
What other changes do I need to be aware of? I don't use Firefox so I'm not really worried about that. I would definitely switch to Ubuntu given valid reason, but I like my Mint setup quite a bit as well. I've really fallen in love with Linux; as a new user it reminds me of Android more than it does windows.
>>
>>52455263
wine is a reimplementation of a subset of windows libraries/functionalities/api's
it doesn't run windows itself, and it doesn't require a windows license, as it also doesn't contain any part of windows

to put it simply, it "pretends" to be windows

yes, this means you can run a multitude of windows programs legally without a windows license at all
>>
>>52458165
It's not like it's happening as a program.

It's almost happening like a background process. I delete it and it reappears. It has been happening for a few days, even after shutting it down and what not.
>>
>>52459261
Have you tried deleting it with the terminal? rm?
>>
Is it better to get a desktop environment or just a WM + other things?
>>
>>52452732
Yeah, I remember using that feature ago to install vim.

But the reason why I'm installing gentoo because I'm kind of having trouble with crouton being a dick around with the laptop hardware(est: cras to alsa)

Just wondering in this thread that anyone installed another OS besides Chrubuntu for the Chromebooks
>>
>>52459567
Up to you. Do you want things simple to use but fully featured or minimalist (initially) and highly configurable?
>>
>>52459567
that depends. everyone's preferences is different
there's not a single "better way" of doing majority of actions.
Stop asking such dumb questions anon.
Figure out what you prefer instead of trying to validate shitty choices because "internet said it was better"
