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 search for 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.

A script designed to ease the transition from Windows to Debian
Reminder that a 2GB+ VRAM GPU is recommended for Linux.
So I would like to try out a linux distro. I have this old white unboidy mac book core duo @2.4ghz. What distro is lightweight enough to run and some what is beginning friendly? How would I duo boot linux on osx also
>Overwrite everything with Linux
1. How is korora?
2. Are Fedora spins as suitable as Ubuntu for serious normie tier desktop use?
Going to override everything with GNU/Linux here.
people tend to give up easily if they're not going all the way in
I think I was finally converted when Windows had an unfixable issue (fairly common but I wasn't in the mood to reinstall that day) and I started spending more time on my GNU/Linux partition. Wanted something besides Linux Mint so I found CrunchBang. Later Ubuntu Minimal, and then regular old Debian. Used that for a few years. These days I've got Arch on everything. No regrets.
spins are no different than the "original"/base distro. the only difference is what's installed by default.
the *buntus, for example, are just Ubuntu with some programs for the particular DE (and without the Amazon snooping). Fedora Spins are the same, except with Fedora Workstation as their base distro.
As for Korora:
Based on this (https://kororaproject.org/about/whats-inside), I think it's legit. I've never used it, though, and don't really plan on it. It seems like the Linux Mint of Fedora (because Linux Mint is basically Ubuntu with all the codecs and stuff installed by default). Give it a shot.
Different strokes, I suppose.
I basically just stopped using Windows because I was (and still am) too lazy and impatient to restart my computer, go through Windows' long boot process, and get through its slow startup just to use a couple of programs specific to it.
I had access to everything I needed here, so the dual boot was (and still is) just a safety precaution.
Do some linux distros use GiB, MiB instead of GB and MB when appropriate?
The software you choose to use will make that call. You can change it in most cases,default,again,depends on what software you install and how the dev(s) decide to make their program work
The slow reboot process for a few things is why I ditched dual booting even after I did fix the Windows issue. I also hated that my friends would ask me to play a Windows-only game as if it was no big deal to boot into Windows. Eventually just removed the HDD Windows was on and told them all.
df has the following options:-h, --human-readable
print sizes in human readable format (e.g., 1K 234M 2G)
likewise, but use powers of 1000 not 1024
So as >>52891243 said, it depends on the software.
The only companies that unironically use base 10 MB and GB instead of base 2 are hardware manufacturers selling data storage, so they can pretend that 930GB is a terabyte.
Block size is in base 2, using anything else in an operating system puts you firmly on the spectrum.
You should go to Europe and drive at 100mph in a 100kph zone, when they pull you over tell them that the signs didn't mention what the speed is in so you just assumed it was mph, since that was "correct" when you got your licence.
Don't forget to tip.
I get used to Gedit, but then whenever I used notepad++ I miss some of the more advanced searching features it has.
Also the fact that the saving open tabs plugin is completely fucking broken is nice. Maybe I should just stop putting it off and learn Vim already.
"go balls deep and dont have a hard drive just a usb stick running puppy slacko''
Absolutely. That's why data is mostly measured in powers of 2 and you should use KiB, MiB and GiB instead of KB, MB and GB.
KiB = 1024 bytes
KB = 1000 bytes
A 1TB HDD is 930 GiBs.
Which linux distros use the correct acronyms?
I don't think you understand.
What I mean is that KB isn't an SI 'K' followed by a B, it is its own thing since applying 1000 to something measured in groups of 8 is fucking silly.
It would be like having kilodozens, or kiloscores. I guess it does get confusing if you say that KBit is 1000 bits but KB is 1024 bytes.
But hey, it's not like ISPs haven't been taking advantage of the fact nobody knows the fucking difference between bits and bytes for the last 30 years.
It doesn't matter what quantity the unit is.
What matters is that Kilo should always mean 1000 and not 1024.
If you don't like bytes you could just refer every amount of data by Kibibits and Kilobits.
Also, strictly speaking the 1000 prefix is meant to be lower-case 'k' so pretty much every implementation gets something wrong.
Then you get inconsistencies because the 1024 prefix is upper-case 'Ki'.
The US will measure distances in kilometres before computers universally display base 2 filesizes in KiB.

Explain this bullshit!
Tried Mint for like the fifth time recently. Got it installed on a dodgy as fuck hard drive. It was up and running and everything, but when I was on Steam, I realised that for some reason the Steam Chat boxes don't show up on the taskbar, so if they're minimised, you can't get them back.
I downloaded Ubuntu and I'm going to give that a shot on a better quality HDD. I sort of/kind of want to get out of Windows, but it's hard because that's all I've ever used and, spyware aside, it does literally everything I want it to with no hassle. If I want to game in Linux (pls no hate), should I use WINE or something like VirtualBox?
>There's not even any point; it literally costs no more to make 1000GB than to make 930
You could say the same thing about 700MB single layer CD-Rs, the material costs are identical to 4GB DVD-Rs so why do they still bother making them?
The point is to make people run out of storage faster, so they have to buy more, sooner.
Same thing with applel having no external storage whatsoever, which would be fine if they used 128GB internal or something similar, instead of 16GB.
Well the compression ratio is shit, and it's not even easily extractable on Wendys or snowflakeOSX without installing shitty 3rd party tools.
But I didn't want to talk about the obvious practical downsides, just how socially detrimental it would be.
I dont get your fucking view.
So only rar,zip,7z can contain files that can harm your computer?
.tar.gz can contain a virus and run on a windows machine
.ace can be run on windows and contain a windows virus
.bz could contain a sh script that is blindly run and ---no-preserve-roots your entire system
What exactly is your fucking point
Before attempting to compile this virus make sure you have the correct version of glibc installed, and that your firewall rules are set to ‘allow everything’.
Put the attachment into the appropriate directory eg. /usr/src.
Type ‘tar xvzf evilmalware.tar.gz’ to extract the source files for this virus.
‘cd’ to the directory containing the virus' source code and type ‘./configure’ to configure the virus for your system. If you're using ‘csh’ on an old version of System V, you might need to type ‘sh ./configure’ instead to prevent ‘csh’ from trying to execute ‘configure’ itself.
Type ‘make’ to compile the package. You may need to be logged in as root to do this.
Optionally, type ‘make check_payable’ to run any self-tests that come with the virus, and send a large donation to an unnumbered Swiss bank account.
Type ‘make install’ to install the virus and any spyware, trojans pornography, penis enlargement adverts and DDoS attacks that come with it.
You may now configure your preferred malware behaviour in /etc/evilmalware.conf.
You seem a bit new to 4chan, so let me explain:
The user "Anonymous" are actually many different users you are talking to. That said, fuck your obscure archive container. Nobody cares if it can compress to -200% when it can't decompress rar files.
So I just searched for "best linux" and got sooo many results. Maybe /flt/ can help? What is the BEST linux?
Just installed Arch for the first time after using ArchBang for a couple years.
Is this really what people call hard/annoying? Takes an hour, and I'm pretty sure I can do it faster next time.
You're replying to at least 3 different people you fucking mong.
The person(s) mocking your shitty archive tool isn't the same person who laughing at choosing .rar (me).
Either way, not having .rar support is still shitty.
I didn't say that no tool should support .rar any more, I just said that choosing to use it yourself when there are at least 3 better alternatives depending on the use case is at best bad taste, at worse stupid.
It's supported across the board because it is old, which also explains why it is not very good any more.
Every browser supports http, that doesn't mean you should use it over https whenever possible because of "muh compatibility" unless you absolutely need to.
What do you guys use in the glorious era of microservices to manage docker instances on a single machine? I need something like sandstorm but with less bloat & virtualization overhead, that I can run on a low-end box (512MB ram).
Guess what theme is the pic anons.
Hint: is Linux.

I've tried Ubuntu, mint, and Debian. I used mint the longest, but felt like I learned very little about linux.
Currently deciding between linux from scratch and arch. Not sure if it would be easier moving from arch to linux from scratch or vice versa.
I love the arch wiki, been spending a lot of time on it researching my hardware and problem troubleshooting
Please, tell me you actually used Linux, because nobody gets recommended LFS as a first "distro".
Anyway here is a short list to guide you on your decision:
______Distros For Beginners______
>Mint Cinnamon: For people just switching from Windows, very pretty and excellent first experience. You can usually use software from Ubuntu and Debian.
>Lubuntu: If you want minimalism or installing Linux in an old computer, or just want something that works.
______Distros For Power Users______
>Arch Linux: For learning more about Linux, having the newest software or for extreme personalization, it has the best wiki to go from intermediate user to pro.
>Parabola GNU/Linux-Libre: Using only free software to avoid proprietary software, removes binary blobs and any obfuscated code. Fully compliant with the Free Software Foundation.
>Qubes OS: Security exponentially increased.
>PupNGo Linux: For a more minimalistic distro or for really (REALLY) old computers, has an impressive set of software.
>Replicant OS: A replacement for the closed sourced Android, this is meant for your smartphone.
______Distros For Servers______
>CentOS: For a very stable and really long time support (like for 10 years), with the plus of adding experience for a Linux job.
>OpenMediaVault: Quick and friendly NAS/server.
>Alpine Linux: Ultra secure Linux server and firewall.

^Thats all bullshit
gmrun i tell it where i want it to be and it stays there with no extra packages or mods.
i type and press tab once and im done.
dmenu is far from "simple"
What's the single most secure ootb Linux distribution that doesn't not work?
I know Qubes exists but that's like VM everything and is hard to work with.
I been thinking of migrating to OpenBSD, honestly.
did you just copy and paste the "patched variants" section from the Arch Wiki?
Do you know what a patched variant is?
It would have been smarter to post dmenu's dependencies versus gmrun's:
dmenu's dependencies are fairly lightweight, whereas gmrun requires gtk2, which itself has a lot of dependencies.
I want to put something like "I know Linux" in my resume.
How do I know that I know enough without having to google problems?
Are there resources available?
As far as I've been using Linux it was either as a regular desktop OS or I compiled some program with CMAKE or autoconf and I have yet to understand how those development toolchains really work.
he's right you know, suckless are gay
it starts with a-tool (why not using a fucking sh script?)
and it ends with dmenu
dwm is nice, but that's all
the real cancer is that ALL memeloads use dmenu, just like all memeloads use scrot (also bloat, think of already installed imagemagick).
conclusio: fuck /g/ opinions
Which nigger isnt using gtk in some form that it isnt being pulled in?
I didnt say it is .04 larger then demnu.I said its features
Yes they are patches.Meaning they are not included in the default.
I need a patch to move its default position?
Sounds like a detriment more then a feature.
/flt/ards, why does it happen, that everytime when no newb is asking some question, /flt/ is going to murder each other with hardcore memes?
Just keep calm, mpv ~/.porn/* and chill out.

I'm not sure, if the device is popular, then someone probably has an updated kernel developed specifically for it.

how do I fix this? I tried reinstalling all nvidia driver related packages and rebooting but that didn't fix anythingPROBLEM: You appear to have OpenGL 0.0.0, but we need at least 2.0.0!
Could not find required OpenGL entry point 'glGetError'! Either your video card is unsupported, or your OpenGL driver needs to be updated.
if you can get the kernel headers in use on the system you could rebuild a modern gcc for a cross compiler (maybe?)
and then static link everything. but I am not sure if that would work, its just what I would try.
I'd just like to interject for moment. What you're refering to as GNU/Linux is, in fact, just Linux, or as I've just now taken to calling it, Just.Linux. Linux apparently does happen to be a whole operating system unto itself and comprises a full OS as defined by POSIX.
Most computer users who run the entire Linux system every day already realize it. Through a peculiar turn of events, I was misled into calling the system "GNU/Linux", and until now, I was unaware that it is basically the Linux system, developed by the Linux project.
There really isn't a GNU/Linux, and I really wasn't using it; it is an extraneous misrepresentation of the system that's being used. Linux is the operating system: the entire system made useful by its included corelibs, shell utilities, and other vital system components. The kernel is already an integral part of the Linux operating system, never confined useless by itself; it functions coherently within the context of the complete Linux operating system. Linux is never used in combination with GNU accessories: the whole system is basically Linux without any GNU added, or Just.Linux. All the so-called "GNU/Linux" distributions are really distributions of Linux.
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you proprietary slave? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class at Harvard, and I’ve been involved in numerous free software projects, and I have contributed to over 300 core-utils for GNU. I am skilled in Lisp and I’m St. IGNU-cius, saint of the Church of Emacs. You are nothing to me but just another unethical non-free software advocate. I will distribute the fuck out of your source code with freedom the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit about me and the GPL on the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my colleagues at FSF and your binaries are being reversed engineered right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your copyright. You're fucking dead, kid. Free software can be anywhere, anytime, and it can ensure your freedom in over four ways, and that’s just with the GPLv2. Not only am I extensively skilled at C hacking, but I have access to the source of the entire GNU userland and core-utils and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable proprietary code off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what ethical retribution your little “clever” program was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have ensured your users' freedom. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit free as in freedom all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

Is anyone else having problems with local .swf files on firefox 44.0? Even tough I had changed the mime.types when I installed this system .swf files just stopped playing today. Can't find any information about it and mime.types are like they should be but just for some reason firefox won't open them.
Tried re-installing flash but even that was futile. Plz answer me.
ok i did that but when i try to install a package with yaourt console keeps printingRunning makepkg as root is not allowed as it can cause permanent,how do i make it allow me to run this as root?
catastrophic damage to your system.
So I'm trying to install arch (again) and when the command-line opens it gets fluded with USB errors. I cannot set anything up and cannot read because of the error spam. Is there some command that I can use to block these out?
Or take a group (wheel for example) and then just uncomment the line from /etc/sudoers
usermod -aG wheel youruser
Uncomment line 82 from /etc/sudoers
It doesnt matter when you do it.
Can anyone atleast confirm my problem so that I know it's not just me?
It seem's to have hung on the resizing of the partitions. That's not a good thing.
>It seem's to have hung on the resizing of the partitions. That's not a good thing.
Probably should let it finish.
You didn't move any partition, did you, because then if that fails, you'll lose all of the data on your HDD.
I have to rename my ethernet connection on my laptop to eth0.
What is the best / safest way to do this
Should I make a udev rule or is there a way to tell systemd to fuck off on this specific part? (Only have one Ethernet on my laptop and that will not change)
So I tried installing Steam for Debian following the instructions on https://wiki.debian.org/Steam and on #4 (installing 32-bit OpenGL libraries) my x230 gave me the ol' " :( error..." and nothing would start.
I ended up reinstalling the whole OS cause I couldn't figure how to fix it and it was unusable. Now I'm not so sure I should try installing again cause I've riced and everythings running smooth.
Anyone know how I mightve fucked up and if its worth risking trying to install Steam again?
I can confirm it's not just you, I had that problem too.
I can't remember what I did to fix it though. There was something kinda weird with flash IIRC.
I'd look on my desktop, but I can't get at it now. I'll see if I have anything here.
Now I remember. Make a file called ".mime.types" in your home directory. Put this in it (with a newline at the end):application/x-shockwave-flash swf swfl
Reboot Firefox (and maybe the computer too?).
Well shit. Looks like this ain't going to be solved in a while.
>did you configure locale properly?
idk I think so
firefox and whatever cinnamons file manager is works just fine
when i run that command I getunable to init server" could not connect: connection refused

im pretty sure that's just because im trying to run it from a different desktop though

Well I finally figured out how to cross compile properly,mips-linux-gnu-gcc -EB -march=24kc -static helloworld.c -o helloworldbecause this gives me a fatal error saying the kernel's too old instead of random errors, so now it's just a matter of either updating the kernel or finding a Linux 2.6 MIPS toolchain. The toolchain in AMD64 Debian requires Linux 3.2 or higher, I'm going to see if it's any different in the MIPS32 repository

So guys I'm getting rid of Ubuntu and installing a different distro, mainly for programming and posting on /g/.
I'm looking at several different options: Fedora, Korora, Solus, openSUSE, and Manjaro. What would you guys recommend? Korora looks interesting, Solus looks pretty, Manjaro is easymode Arch, openSUSE looks nice, and Fedora is Fedora.
Yes, and I realized what to do from there. Thank you for helping me; now I have learned something.
The Arch forums would tell me 1.) I'm on the wrong forums because I have Antergos and that's not real Arch and
2.) I'm being a help vampire and need to figure it out on my own.
Any way to fix this?The following packages have unmet dependencies:
gcc-mips-linux-gnu : Depends: gcc-5-mips-linux-gnu (>= 5.2.1-13cross1) which is a virtual package and is not provided by any available package.

There was a time when linux was a toy and mach was a standard. Tannenbaum recieved 4.5 million dollars in funding since 2013 and hurd is in active development now. Minix will most likely take over embedded devices in ~15 years if hurd doesn't.
All of these are mach derivatives.

I fell for the arch linux meme
I'm thinking of setting up Xubuntu from netinst and don't really know what boxes to tick.
I'm not going to use it for something specific (apart from maybe printing, but that's pretty basic) and I don't really want to choose packages on my own.
So, which options are useful and which aren't necessary?
New computer, want to setup Arch. Have been using it for several years and have gone through the installation several times on different machines. I really don't care for doing it again. I know how to use it. I am assuming Manjaro is inferior because it does not use the Arch repos. So, Architect or Antergos?
I am running 5.5 and I haven't noticed anything that crashes on me for a long time.
There is still a lot of features missing that were there in 4, but these things takes time I guess.
Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone could recommend me a good distro to install. Keep in mind I have very little experience with linux but I'd like to try it out and am willing to actually learn instead of just copy-pasting commands. I come from Windows and I know most people recommend ubuntu for its simplicity and resemblance to Windows, but I'd like to try something more "hard", that will actually force me to learn.
Preferably something stable and that won't make me waste hours looking for drivers etc. although I plan to use it as a secondary OS for the moment, so stability isn't really critical.
Thank you for your advice!
If i install (for example) Ubuntu 15.10, which doesn't have LTS, and after a while (in a few months afaik) newer version with LTS gets published, do i need to reinstall ubuntu to upgrade, or software update does that automatically?
