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?
15 posts and 2 images submitted.
>>
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

How to assemble a PC, select components & more (outdated)
https://wiki.installgentoo.com/index.php?title=Build_a_PC

CPUs:
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

GPUs:
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

RAM:
>Check your Mobo QVL before buying any RAM
>Ryzen CPUs benefits a lot from high speed RAM

General:
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.

Is it true that you should get an overpowered PSU for reliability and silent running or is it a meme to go more than 100w over your max usage?
>>
>>61648300

Kek

Is this seriously a video Gigabyte released
>>
>>61648592
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.

Where do I get a 40% with matias quiets

Is it possible to get a vortex core kit? I don't want an ortholinear meme
>>
>>61648058
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.

Installation:
https://mpv.io/installation/

Wiki:
https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/wiki

Manual:
https://mpv.io/manual/stable/

mpv.conf example:
https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/blob/master/etc/mpv.conf

input.conf example:
https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/blob/master/etc/input.conf

User Scripts(including opengl shaders):
https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/wiki/User-Scripts

Migrating from MPC-HC?
https://github.com/dragons4life/MPC-HC-config-for-MPV/blob/master/input.conf

Vulkan(Linux only for now):
https://github.com/atomnuker/mpv

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
profile=opengl-hq
# Scaler used when upscaling chroma (color information)
cscale=ewa_lanczos
# Scaler used when upscaling video
scale=ewa_lanczossharp

# https://github.com/mpv-player/mpv/wiki/Display-synchronization
# Force video to lock on the display's refresh rate
video-sync=display-resample
# Reduces stuttering
interpolation
# Interpolation scaler
tscale=oversample


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?
Add

angle-flip=no

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

log-file=log.txt

to your config file.
Then search the log for "dumb" anything or for [e].

You can keep the OP cleaner and put all the extra stuff as a separate first comment instead.

What do you use to auto-download subtitles? , the thing I like the most about mpc-hc is that you can download subs, just pressing d, is there something like that for mpv?

Hey /g/,

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?

Thanks

Ubuntu with persistence was a buggy shitfest so go with Tails with persistence. Also, we have a general for such questions called /sqt/, next time, ask it there.
>>
>>61647625
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.
