What is /g/'s router firmware of choice?

I'm currently rocking DD-WRT on my Netgear R6400 after trying Tomato and realising it basically limited any 2.4GHz traffic to 2 Mbps.

I don't miss the "pretty" real time graphs.

I could never get OpenWRT's wireless access to work, for some reason it came disabled by default (at least in the version I installed on my piece of shit router) and there was nowhere to turn it on

Conky

I've gone through iphone and android phones and have noticed something.
Why the fuck do i have a smartphone?
There is nothing great about having one of those devices. All the apps are webapps and the ecosystem (while being opensource sometimes) is closed as fuck.
I do not use the "phone" of this device for anything else other than sending a message once in a month. Or send a message to add money to my account. (Having calculated how much i've spent in my account and it is 66€ and i barely even talk).
From now on i have decided that as the fucking /g/entooman that i am i am going to get board and my own device. It will run good linux have a good emulator a terminal a good music player and a good web browser to browse /g/.

For talking all i'll need is a "dumb"phone.
No reason for anything more than that.

ubuntu family of distros just werk but the kernel can be fairly dated, fedora family of distros just werk but you'll need 3rd party repos(rpmfusion) for nonfree components(media codecs especially mp3), debian is... minimal.. you'll be configuring a lot yourself, and it's old unless you do testing/unstable (in which case you may as well just ubuntu), arch is far, far, far more minimal but rolling release, gentoo is arch but you compile everything, slackware is minimal and about 5 people use it (comparable to debian), rhel/centos is fedora from a few years ago using software versions from a few years ago but with recent security updates (not recommended outside of very niche workstation use or, naturally, servers), opensuse is great if you like kde but has had some questionable decisions in the past

basically just pick a de and then pick the accompanying distro that does that de best (ubuntu/fedora for gnome, xubuntu for xfce, opensuse for kde, etc)

just installed void and it's /comfy/ af. I used to use systemd/arch linux.

I uninstalled Firefox, but this is still in CCleaner even after reinstalling it, how do I remove it?

>>61302948
Check your Program Files and Program Data folders for any stray Firefox folders that might have been left behind.

kys. install gentoo. egas.

>>61303071
The only thing left are two files called firefox.browser in WinSxS apparently, but I can't delete them, because I don't have the permission of "TrustedInstaller". What should I do now?

I'm about to install Windows 7 on some free space drive - will it fuck up my boot files on primary partition with Win8.1 (i heard it had problems with dual booting due to MacroJews' uefi protection thing and other stuff)

Firefox seems to force the GTK file picker regardless of what DE you're actually using. It's fucking bullshit. I know there's some sort of workaround with an openSUSE version but I haven't looked into it properly.

if I buy in amazon, a couple of different things at the same time, does amazon sell me everything in the same package, or some things may come after the others?
10 posts and 1 images submitted.
>>
also, when you recieve the package, you need to sign something or something?

can my mom pick the package? because i will be sleeping.
>>
>>61302806
If you put all of them in your basket and press the order button after, then they put them all in one box.

If you checkout after EVERY item, you will get them separately, in one-one box and pay for S&H every time.

Amazon sends it with registered mail, so yes someone has to sign it. In my country it can be you, any of your family members over 14 from your household or anyone with written permission from you. Regulation may differ in your country but probably not much.
>>
>>61302806
It will ask when you select shipping if you want separate and possibly faster packages.
