havent seen someone writing perl stuff in years, pretty sad tbqh, seems that python, ruby, etc pretty much killed it, which is inane, since perl eveloped with gnu/linux over the years, is available everywhere and a nice language for simple programs. when you try hard, you can even replace any awk, grep, sed stuff with perl.

I'm not sure that optimization is done across files.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

Hi, /fglt/.

I have a question.

So, the issue with a lot of trackers is that the music they distribute has a lot of bad metadata and is often organized by album, not by artist. Both of these issues means that my music library is incredibly inconsistent, but, besides symlinking, my problem is that I cannot modify the data in any way, or else I would longer be able to seed everything.

What I'm wondering is if there's a music player for GNU/Linux that enables me to automatically scan that downloads directory, copy new files from that directory to another, and organize the directories according to their metadata?

I suspect that Clementine has this feature, but I'm not sure. Can anyone help me out?

well bud, there is a company who wants to get some sheckles by driving debian windows friendly with lots of nonfree stuff support and being shit in general. wsl is basically the fault of canonical <3 microsoft
then there is linux mint, which doesnt like unity, but cinnamon and thats reason enough to make a whole new distro, which is basically ubuntu painted green, unity removed and cinnamon added. so the crude hack which linux mint developers shitted on eath works, some things must be considered: upgrading linux, systemd, xorg or any other essencial packages is "not recommended" and linux mint has a blacklist for those things

tl;dr debian is nice, there are forks based on debian which are either trolling you into "its better because more botnet" or trolling you into "it better because it just works"

The purpose of GNU/Linux systems is customizing, modifications, sharing modifications, freedom. E.g. technical benifits. When're a normie and you get a system which is premade to be used like Windows, you use it like Windows and people start demanding crap like
>REEEE why crappy skype support
etc which ultimativly ends up with more nonfree software and the opposite of customizing, modifications, sharing modifications and freedom.

>>
>>61854360
Well, if market share is the goal, sure, software support makes a difference, but you're asking for a future system, which is basically just as cucked like Android but on the desktop, which makes me unironically fear the year of the Linux desktop happening.

how to git gud with lemonbar?
I figured to install it but I dont get how this shit even works.
>>
>>61854962
Basically, you have a script which prints shit, this script is pipes to lemonbar to display.
Simple example:
while sleep 1.0; do printf -- '%%{r} %s \n' "$(cat /proc/loadavg)"; done | lemonbar -F '#ffdddddd' -B '#cc111111' -b -f '-*-terminus-*'

Now, you read the manpage of lemonbar in order to customize the apperance and you learn how2shell to display stuff lemonbar should display for you.

At some point you want to create a named pipe and write all those informations to it - and parse it with another script for lemonbar to read. That way your bar script doesn't lock.

There's also polybar, for the same shit, but more noob friendly.

happy hacking

Man, I really don't understand why all the noobs don't just go straight to Manjaro.

I'm a semi-fresh Windows refugee and didn't want to do the cuckfest that is Ubuntu again, with its paper-maiche-fence walled-garden where the repository is full of babby's first stable release of old rotting software and anything that's not in there, you have to install yourself.

I see why everyone likes the AUR. Everything's in there, it's all relatively updated, and all it takes is a pacaur one-liner and all installation and handling of dependencies are taken care of for you like a little software butler.

Honestly it's better than Windows, and I'm not even saying that as an experienced Linux user. I wanted to convert and go the somewhat more intermediary route oobunboo, and Manjaro, while taking care of the bulk of the hardware and driver drudgery, doesn't hold my hand so much as to make me work a little bit to change shit and understand why it does/doesn't work.

I got the KDE version and it's goddamn glorious. Basically like stock windows but with customization on steroids.

if ZFS suits you, go for it, it's just a bit inflexible for home use, as it wasn't really intended for small setups, for example, you can't change the number of disks in a vdev (like converting a 3 disk raidz1 to a 4 disk raidz1)

Wait what? So you're fixing the MBR after deleting a linux partition but _before_ installing a new one?

I don't understand why. If all you use is the windows MBR then I would think if anything it would be messed up after installing a new distro, not before.
So I'm guessing that what you're actually using is GRUB and for some reason it doesn't work right after removing your old distro so you reinstall the windows MBR, only to then overwrite the windows MBR with GRUB again when the new distro installs?

I don't know anon, I might just be confused here.
But if you are in fact using GRUB then I don't see why you don't just skip the step about installing the windows MBR and just go right to installing the new distro. It should fix the MBR itself and everything would be fine.

No, Richard, it's 'Linux', not 'GNU/Linux'. The most important contributions that the FSF made to Linux were the creation of the GPL and the GCC compiler. Those are fine and inspired products. GCC is a monumental achievement and has earned you, RMS, and the Free Software Foundation countless kudos and much appreciation.

Following are some reasons for you to mull over, including some already answered in your FAQ.

One guy, Linus Torvalds, used GCC to make his operating system (yes, Linux is an OS -- more on this later). He named it 'Linux' with a little help from his friends. Why doesn't he call it GNU/Linux? Because he wrote it, with more help from his friends, not you. You named your stuff, I named my stuff -- including the software I wrote using GCC -- and Linus named his stuff. The proper name is Linux because Linus Torvalds says so. Linus has spoken. Accept his authority. To do otherwise is to become a nag. You don't want to be known as a nag, do you?

(An operating system) != (a distribution). Linux is an operating system. By my definition, an operating system is that software which provides and limits access to hardware resources on a computer. That definition applies whereever you see Linux in use. However, Linux is usually distributed with a collection of utilities and applications to make it easily configurable as a desktop system, a server, a development box, or a graphics workstation, or whatever the user needs. In such a configuration, we have a Linux (based) distribution. Therein lies your strongest argument for the unwieldy title 'GNU/Linux' (when said bundled software is largely from the FSF). Go bug the distribution makers on that one. Take your beef to Red Hat, Mandrake, and Slackware. At least there you have an argument.
>>
>>61719051
>>61719077
I'm terribly sorry for interjecting another moment, but what I just told you is 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 operating 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.
>>
Don't call it GNU/Linux. It gives Stallsham undue credit. He's done nothing but take credit for the work of others and has the audacity to call himself a Doctor when he couldn't even finish his Masters.

wrote emacs
Contributed to guy steele's TECO macros, later cloned gosmacs, the actual first emacs for UNIX. If stallman wrote emacs, apple is the sole creator of webkit.
wrote gcc and gdb
He wrote the C compiler initially, but the vast majority of development for other compilers and the C compiler has came from non-stallman sources.

And he hasn't programmed in years. Stallman is washed up, and his justifications for copyleft are horribly invalid nonsense that would make more sense if they were actual thinly veiled communism instead of selfish ramblings and a desire for a world that catered to his specific social class.

If stallman was never in the tech indsutry and was stillborn at birth.We would still have Linux.Back in the 1990's when linux was working on linux there were other userlands which he could have used.There were many other options at the time and he would have picked one of those and gone on with creating linus like it would have been in our timeline.

Imagine you were having a conversation about importing some stuff from China and someone keeps getting all up in your face telling you that you are mistaken, it's actually called the People's Republic of China and then proceed to regale you with some version of its history that pushed their agenda. The problem here isn't whether the name is correct or not, it's that it is irrelevant to the conversation and trying to change the subject into a thinly veiled philosophical rant is terribly rude. If you want to start a philosophical argument then do it in an appropriate forum.

And if you really think that people here are trying to "silence thoughts GNU" then you really are autistic and should take some time to read up on human psychology. People don't like being told what to think and tend to push back against that, not because of the ideas being presented but the manner in which they are.

Someone remind me why we have 2 separate threads again?

Nothing has changed, just like I told you faggots it wouldn't. You can't go build your little safespace where you never hear the opinions (or interjections) of the users you don't like, so why even try?
ALL you've done is make 2 threads slower and make it more difficult for people to get help with things they need.

Splitting only makes sense if it accomplishes something, but this is accomplishing nothing of value. This is 4chan, you're always going to be stuck with people you hate. Get over it.

If it makes you feel better to make these threads _first_ and title them /flt/ then that's great, more power to you guys and I will support you in saying that anyone who makes an /fGlt/ after that is in the wrong.
Likewise if an /fGlt/ thread already exists and you create an /flt/ thread then you're the ones who are in the wrong. That's the responsible way to have your little battle not to selfishly decide that everyone needs to take sides just because YOU want it to happen.

Again, look at the posts you just made. We are not really 2 separate threads. This is still very much 1 group of users and it always will be, you're just making it annoying and more difficult for everyone.

As long as we don't get any more interject shit and the thread title is set to what it was previously, /flt/ then fine, I'll stop all this.
We need to learn to get along and not get in each others faces, all you do with the coagent interject spam is rile people up. It's not like this is the official Redhat forum or something. We're just all a bunch of faggots using our distros for our own personal needs. We want the interject shit as much as we want the Jehovah's witnesses showing up today.

BTW I disagree that nothing has changed. About 10 days of this and you're already setting peace terms. I could go on with this long term, but I'm a logical guy and would rather we worked something out instead of continuing with this toxic shit.

GNU turds must learn to respect that people don't like to be preached to, when we are ready to learn we know where the gnu website is and can get converted to gnuism and install vrms or whatever. Until then as long as we learn to not get in each others faces it will be fine. Or it can descend into a smaller /v/. Your move.

I guarantee you that this split you're doing has had the exact opposite effect from what you wanted. You're actually giving them more power and legitimacy by acknowledging it to this degree.

>As long as we don't get any more interject shit
You completely miss the point. Look at all these cross thread posts and people spamming idealistic bullshit in both threads. You're NEVER going to get away from it on 4chan. All you want is to not be associated with them because that's all you can possibly stand to gain from this.
So let's compromise on making the OP neutral and that should give you what you really want.

>As long as we don't get any more interject shit and the thread title is set to what it was previously, /flt/ then fine, I'll stop all this.
>As long as I get MY WAY
Don't be an asshole. We can make the OP _neutral_. That's the best way to move forward and you know it. If you keep this going now, especially when we're asking for compromise then you're basically going to label yourself as a much more idealistic autistic sperglord than any of the GNUfags ever were.

Stop using shitty downstream distributions.
Look up how to change permissions of files in the search engine of your choice (mine shows a million results).
There are text editors that run in terminal emulators, so your statement doesn't make sense.
There is no way to save changes inside a terminal emulator. You edit text with a text editor inside a terminal emulator and saving changes depends on the program (text editor) you used.

I am fully aware of that. But different distributions have different packaging and documentation. Some kernels might not be shipped with ZFS support. In that case, I would have to build it myself. ZFS might even be officially packaged, as with Slackware.

There a subtle differences between distros on how they manage edge cases like this one.

Tough shit. GPU passthrough is mostly designed to be used on top of a desktop distro. IIRC GNOME Boxes supports it, but that requires GNOME, and is just libvirt underneath.

In the GTK3 filepicker, is there any way to get rid of the single-click behavior on selected folders?

It seems so silly to have to double click for non-selected folders but single-click if it's already selected.
Sometimes I accidentally double click and it enters the folder and selects a file in it, which erases the original filename I was trying to save and I don't remember what it was called (like a 4chan timestamp) so I have to close the whole filepicker and try saving the image again just to get the name back.

Sure it might save me the time of 1 extra click on the few occasions that the folder I want to enter is the one that's already selected
But the cost is that now my brain also has to stop and consider EVERY time whether the folder is already selected or not.

I don't see it being a time saver at all, and not to mention they're breaking a very long standing tradition. What interface is this modeled after?

why would you ever not have your home folder on a separate partition? that's just crazy, in my opinion
>>61869803
if you care about the opinions of others, then yes, it's too late. But you shouldn't.
>>
>>61869646
It depends on your needs. It's not really as difficult or delicate to figure out as it might seem.

For instance you don't even need a separate boot partition at all. All you need to do is make sure that whichever partition does have boot has the bootable flag enabled. That's it.
You can just have one big partition if you want and have boot remain on the same partition as your root directory / but then you'd set that partition to be bootable.

Other than that little requirement to set the bootable flag just do whatever you want.

As far as I know the 2 biggest reasons for splitting things to separate partitions are wanting to preserve data even when doing a complete wipe and reinstall (this is why some people like to put /home on a separate partition)
and the other big one is if you actually want certain parts of the file structure to use different filesystems (this is why people often put /boot on a different partition, e.g. make /boot ext2 and make the rest of the system ext4 or something, or because they want to set different filesystem options in their fstab like disabling access times)

Then there's also the swap partition if you want it. It's not necessary, but can be a good idea to have for cases where you might run out of RAM (it's also possible to set up a swap without needing a separate partition for it, but I guess it's a little more optimized to have a separate partition)

Also be aware that there is some debate about whether putting a partition at the front makes it faster, you can put them in any order so it's up to you.
>>
>>61869837
Also for the record if you do put /home on a separate partition you want to give almost all of your disk space to it.

Outside of /home a GNU/Linux install rarely goes above 30-40GB. Almost all the data on your disk is going to be in /home

Hey I have some problems with my KDE desktop that I don't really know how to change. Idk if this belongs on /sqt/ or not so please inform me if it does.

Second, when I open GNU Icecat for some reason the little icon in the top left that's supposed to be the Icecat icon just shows up as a generic icon of a dog. Third, the Breeze Dark theme I have set for GNU Icecat does not show up in Private Browsing mode.

logical partitions is an old hack to work around the 4 partition limit of ms-dos formatting
it's basically a "primary" partition containing another ms-dos format, allowing 4 (logical) partitions within that (primary) partition

a partition is a partition, "primary" was only added to the name to differentiate them from the logical partition hack partitions

ideally you should be using GPT, a newer disk format which allows for 128 partitions

LVM is an entirely unrelated technology, which is a bit complex to summarise in few words, see

Hi /flg/, I'm setting up a Raspberry Pi as a bit of a home server. I've found a distro called Minibian, which has cut down all the fluff that normally comes with Raspbian.

However, I'm keen to make the system secure for all the relevant services it'll be running (OpenVPN, SSH, FTP, Samba, Torrent server, etc). Is it better to create a separate user for each of these services? How best to manage this aspect?
