/vlg/ - Void Linux General

Call of the Void edition

This thread is for those who are interested in Void Linux, use it, need help with it or want to try it.

Benefits of using void:
>no systemd
>xbps package manager
>just works
>rolling release
>libreSSL instead of openSSL
>over 5000 packages and growing daily
>musl or glibc

>No systemd
Void Linux uses the runit init system and services supervision. It has the benefits of fast boot and shutdown times as well as simple and easy to write init scripts (in addition to having hundreds of pre-written ones).

>xbps
Powerful package manager with dependency resolution. If your desired software isn't in the repository, build it with xbps-src and consider adding it.

Contribute packages, wiki entries, guides, &c. It already has a logo but there's plenty more to do as the distro is still in its early stages.

It works for me. I'll probably just change my terminal emulator colour scheme to match my desktop's but that's it. Maybe add a void icon where the awesome icon is.

Is chiru.no just a meme or does FLAC really sound better?
32 posts and 6 images submitted.
>>
flac is good because it's better for storing music not because it actually sounds better
>>
mp3 and other formats put a cap based on the average human's hearing limits.
some people aren't average so of course FLAC sounds better for them.
>>
flac is good to have because you can convert it to any format without distortion or degradation

listening to .flac is kind of a meme (not as big a meme as vinyl), I normally use .ogg

Is Quantum Computing gonna kill cyber security?

>I've been hearing from physics people, some of whom are quite CS literate, that my plan to go into cyber sec is a fuckin meme unless I double major in physics and thoroughly familiarize myself with quantum mechanics in order to stay relevant in the coming age of quantum computing, which will turn cryptography, and other major parts of cyber security on its head; going as far as to saying that most companies will hire physics people instead of CS similarly to how some accounting firms started hiring just mathematicians instead of accountants because the math got ahead of their level.

Is this just physic majors' way of pretending that they're relevant and that their highest aspirations aren't just being a neckbeard professor, or is this actually worth considering?

>cyber security
no such thing
>>
>>62357240
Cyber sec is a fuckin meme anyway, the vast majority of real attacks are based on social engineering and require only a very low baseline of technical knowledge. If you want to go into security you should go into physical security or as an opsec consultant
>>
Welll, 99,999% of the "security" engineers don't know shit about the theoretical aspects of cryptography, so I don't see why this need to change once the really smart people come up with quantum proof encryption algorithms.

Greetings wise ones
So, my old 750ti is in dire need of replacing, but what graphics card shall I get?
I'm not the most knowledgeable on pcs so I need advice, here are my specs

motherboard: gigabyte ga-78mlt-usb3, which i believe has a single pci-e x16 slot
cpu: amd fx 8350
RAM: 8gb
Wattage: 600w

I know it is far from the nest build, and I may upgrade to 16gb of RAM aswell, but what gpu shall I get? or shall I invest in a new FLU first?
I'm looking to spend £150-£400 on the graphics card alone

or shall I ask /g/?
