Welcome to /flt/ - Friendly Linux Thread.
Users of all levels are welcome to ask questions about Linux and share their experiences.
*** Please be civil, notice the "Friendly" in every Friendly Linux Thread. ***
Before asking for help, please check our list of resources[*].
If you would like to try out Linux you can do one of the following:
0) Install a Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine using VirtualBox or other software made for this purpose for safety reasons.
1) Use the Live ISO (if your distribution of choice has one) to boot directly into the Linux distribution without installing anything, that way, you can get to experience the Linux operating system without installing it.
2) Dual boot the Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS, this is recommended if you want to know more about the Linux operating system.
3) Go balls deep and replace everything with Linux.

Why aren't devops people mentioned on g? Are there any devops lurking?
there's no such a thing as devops. there's 2 types of sysadmins: the ones who can code and the ones who are basically paid to get shat on when things go wrong. devops is just a smoke screen to slowly phase out people too stupid to code from sysadmin positions
If you want help:
>Assemble parts list
>State the budget for your build (and country if not USA)
>List games/software you use often, as well as your monitor resolution + refresh rate
>Clarify your goal for build improvements: lower price or improved specs?
How to assemble a PC, select components & more (outdated)
No i5 unless discounted
>R3 1200 - Budget builds (<$500)
>R3 1300x - Good stop-gap between the 1500x and the 1200, only get a 1400 if you absolutely need multithreading
>R5 1500x - Good but up to 1600 if you can
>R5 1600 - Best value for higher fps gaming / mixed usage; 1600x if you want higher stock clocks
>i7 7700k - Only for select gaming scenarios (ask if unsure)
>R7/Used Xeon/Threadripper - Compute/Multitask/VM/mixed use; Not for just gaming
Coin miners have driven price up and stock down, waiting to buy a GPU might be wiser
>Integrated CPU Graphics - Desktop stuff and very light games
>GTX 1050(Ti) - Lower end budget cards, drop settings on newer games, RX560 beaten by both
>RX570 - [email protected]~hz maxed, running most maxed older games at 100~Hz
>RX580 and GTX1060 6GB - [email protected] maxed, [email protected] at lower settings; RX580 better in newer games
>GTX 1070 - [email protected] /[email protected] at high
>GTX 1080 - [email protected] / [email protected] maxed, [email protected] in a few games; Probably the highest end card you need for 1080p/1440p
>GTX 1080Ti - [email protected] and [email protected] maxed/high in many games
>Check your Mobo QVL before buying any RAM
>Ryzen CPUs benefits a lot from high speed RAM
ALWAYS LOOK AT PRODUCT REVIEWS!
Always consider an SSD. Try buying a large SSD for what you'd pay for your SSD+HDD combined, and add a HDD later
NVMe SSDs aren't for a faster OS boot, they're for productivity/scratch disk/VMs. NVMe and M.2 are not the same thing, M.2 is a form factor.
The Ryzen lineup comes with surprisingly good stock coolers. consider using them over any <$30 cooler.
Not a meme.
If you get a 1000W+ PSU to run a 400Wish system it'll remain passive all the time. Pretty pointlessly expensive to do it though unless you have autism and really care about noise. For most PSU's the fan noise isn't that much, but if the rest of your system is super quiet it could easily be the loudest component.
Serious question: Why do people pirate something as critical as an OS? Even if you're a poorfag, it isn't worth the risk of losing data or succumbing to remote access tools/botnets. If you want a proprietary OS so badly, why not just pay for it?

You'd have to build it yourself
And no. Matias switches have a differet pin arrangement so even if you get a vortex core you cannot desolder the cherry switches and replace them with matias ones. You can build a custom plate then handwire the whole keyboard togather.
Hey fellas, post some ways of learning programing code (any of it) or someway you know to clear up some questions about it.
Good side project ideas for Rust?
stop blaming js for the incompetence of 99% of webdevs who create shitty sites overloaded with unncessary js for stupid pseudo-features
you don't see me blaming c for the abhorrent software quality of all the software written with it either

User Scripts(including opengl shaders):
Migrating from MPC-HC?
Vulkan(Linux only for now):
Test vulkan and post logs if it gives you any kind of problems.
For better playback quality paste this in your mpv.conf file:# Specify high quality video rendering preset
# Scaler used when upscaling chroma (color information)
# Scaler used when upscaling video
# Force video to lock on the display's refresh rate
# Reduces stuttering
# Interpolation scaler
Notes: Remove cscale and scale if your computer isn't powerful enough.
Interpolation can also reduce framerate drastically.
Mpv uses software decoding by default.
You may want to enable hardware decoding using hwdec=auto or hwdec=auto-copy.
Note that it can lead to issues, depending on your video card.
Getting freezes under Windows?
to your mpv.conf.
If MOUSE_BTN3 and MOUSE_BTN4 aren't working in your input.conf, try using AXIS_UP and AXIS_DOWN to control scrollwheel.
To get error logs, please add
to your config file.
Then search the log for "dumb" anything or for [e].
MPC:HC->mpv/AXIS_UP&DOWN person here.
You can keep the OP cleaner and put all the extra stuff as a separate first comment instead.
Looks better, more structured and cleaner in the catalog.
If I want to be able to carry around my operating system, data and applications all on a USB stick, what is the best way to go about doing this?
My ultimate goal is to be able to plug it into any computer and have my full system ready to go with all my settings and data.
What Linux distro is best for this?
Any useful apps to make this process easier/efficient?
Finally, what kind of USB is best?
just install your /home dir into that usb and install what ever distro you want on all your computers.
If its an arch then login with arch user if its ubuntu then you put ubuntu. The main data will be linked to the rest of the user.
You might want to look into Puppy Linux. Its whole goal is to run from RAM, meaning you can store it on a flash drive just as you would a hard drive.
Running from RAM is important for this kind of thing because if you're constantly reading and writing to your USB stick, it will die very quickly.
What's your dream phone /g/ ?
It doesn't have to exist, make up the specs and features!
But if it already exists, then what is it? And what are the specs and features?
t h i c c so it doesn't break
No front facing camera
running Lineage as default
Idgaf about the internal specs
64+ gigs storage + expandable via SD Card
Fingerprint Sensor on the back
Do you use surge protectors?
Yes, Its some shitty belkin one i bought from Walmart when i moved in. Its not like i didnt need a power bar for all my shit anyways.
Does anybody have any advice on what is the most secure way to visit 4Chan?
Now when I say secure I mean Really secure. Looking to find the best form of maintaining anonymity while posting in this site.

How do I make self-balancing robots?
I know mcu programming (AVR) and basic electronics from college and I need to read up on PID control.
But where do I get the mechanical parts?
