-you can create a shortcut for it on your desktop/applications menu, and specify additional command line parameter, or even tell the system to open the program in a terminal.
-you can create a shell script where you specify these parameters and rather than starting the program directly, start the script.

Most likely yes. They probably fix it soon, as win10 release is in a few days.

Linux noob here

Started QT C++ development, when I try to use the multimedia library I get this error:

>QtMultimedia : defaultServiceProvider::requestService(): no service found for - "org.qt-project.qt.mediaplayer"

I have since installed gstreamer but I still get the error.

I installed Windows, and then all the drivers and shit from my motherboard's disc. I updated a few from their website, the USB, the SATA, LAN, and a few others. Then I went about de-bloating absolutely everything. Some reboots later, I noticed my Network would hang for a long time upon login.

I tried rolling back the network drivers, didn't help.

I also undid all of the services I disabled. Didn't help.

What would cause the network to not connect for 30 seconds to a minute? It was instant when I first installed.

How do I define a set in C++? For example

I got an SSD and plan to do a fresh win 10 install on it. In BIOS my SATA is configured as IDE with 2 more available options in RAID and AHCI.

How do I proceed?

>> No.49180528

Use AHCI if you use a modern OS (you probably do and will).

if you already have Windows installed, you might have to do another steps before doing it so (for Xp you had, for Vista/7/8.1 you might not have to), check google before you do be sure.

You probably know what IDE is.
AHCI is a newer standard, for SATA devices for example. The option to disable the AHCI instructions is there because Windows XP didn't support AHCI out of box back in the days.

>> No.49180552


I'm running Windows 7. I read that Intel recommends using RAID even if you just want AHCI cause it's more compatible or whatnot. But at the same time that these changes should only be made before you do a clean install cause it fucks with your drive otherwise? I don't know I'm lost.

>> No.49180598

That's why I mentioned checking before setting it to another. Usually setting some stuff back to default values in the registry and installing ahci/raid enabled drivers.

I'm looking to buy a new router from newegg, but I'm paranoid that I'll end up buying something that'll die on me after a few months. I just want something that'll give me a stable wireless connection and can handle around 3-4 devices connected to it at once.

I'll mostly be using this router for playing online games and for downloading/streaming. My ISP's best connection offered 25MBps so I don't need it handling anything more than that. My budget's also under $100, but I'm flexible and will pay more if it'll significantly increase the quality or lifespan of the router.

Copy 7 to somewhere else then upgrade to 8.1

It was designed for flash memories (sector size, no journaling, no extended file attributes/ACLs etc). NTFS wasn't.

No need to. SSDs and flash memories can only write to sectors that were already erased, if not they erase it before writing to them.

TP-link is a good choice, if you don't plan to install a custom firmware on it.

Can confirm, TP-Link is nice.

Here are specific recommended ones:

TP-Link TL-WR743ND
- Up to 50-60 Mbit/s
- 1 antenna
- Can act as a client, i.e. the router itself can connect to the neighbor's wifi and you can then use the internet on your computers.

TP-Link TL-WR841ND v8
- Up to 80-90 Mbit/s
- 2 antennas

TP-Link TL-WR843ND v8
- Same as previous, can act as client.

TP-Link TL-WR941ND
- Only buy if cheaper than the 841N(D)

Unless you're interested in using it because it's under active development and thus has regular changes and upgrades (making the experience fun and dynamic if you enjoy it), there's really no reason to force it on yourself.

Using VLC and forcing the video output (it's in the settings) to use OpenGL GLX (XCB) is almost if not identical to mpv with vo=opengl-vhq.

You arguably get finer control with MPV (it's more extensible, eg multiple multi tap Lanczos settings for up scaling, or alternative subtitle renderers), but unless you're really into that (imagine audiophiles for video playback / sub rendering on anime) there isn't really a point. (see: diminishing returns)

I'm not trying to discourage you, but you don't need to use something because it's "the best" (according to /g/), eg; fuck tiling window managers.

Good idea.

Look at the benchmarks, especially if it's OC's, but make sure to view the entire scale, not just the last 10% of the graph. Outside of extremely specific applications, that 955 will be within 20% of the latest and greatest intel chip with the same number of physical cores.

So my n5 has been out of commission for a month or so now. I swapped the screen once, but I fucked it up and got a new part and swapped it again.

All is good except I have a white spot on the screen right above the black navbar.

Plain old tap water is the mildest cleaning solution I know of but anything that can clean the dirt off the keycaps will take a bit of the paint with it too. You might want to invest in some double-shot or laser etched caps next time.

The G400 is (IMHO) the greatest mouse ever made, but this chart fails to mention the poor design choice that bends the cord at a 90 degree angle. Also, (IMHO) high DPI is more comfortable.

Don't rip your hair out and go with this m8:

$6 cheaper than your original and and better PSU/GPU. The original motherboard was overkill. You can opt for Seagate HDD but most people prefer WD.

>> No.49186040 [DELETED] 

nvm just saw it's like $40 over before rebates crap. I'd say the 970 and modular PSU is worth it though.

How far i am from OS programing level(C,C++) from ASP.NET C#?

Sorry, $6 more expensive

Am I in big trouble?

I know this must be highly /v/, but...

Everytime I install Steam on Windows, the next boot will be broken. I do not know how to fix this other than reinstalling windows.

I download it from the official site, btw.

>> No.49186187

Get boots that don't break. I recommend steel-toed.

>> No.49186253

sounds like your drivers are fucked. I'd reinstall anyway just to keep it from happening with some other program in the future

>> No.49186274

The thing is, it's not the drivers.
And it only happens with Steam, so I'm guessing something on the games is killing Windows.

>> No.49186416

Use Intel and Nvidia instead of AMD and you'll be fine. Might want to wait for Skylake though.


Put a room fan right next to your computer.

NVIDIA 600/700/800 series.

There is no way to tell. I'd recommend 2x8GB or 2x4GB to make upgrading in the future cheaper.

Wait for Skylake.

Depends on the problem. For example an HDD that sat underwater for a couple hours can still have the data recovered from it. But if you heat the HDD past the Curie point, there will be absolutely no data recovery at all.

Most distros don't require anywhere near that much GB to install, so yes.

Used Thinkpad or used MBP/MBA.

HD quality is 99% opinion and the other half is hearsay. I've had multiple Seagate drives die early on me, while my HGST's have lasted well beyond their time. If you do go with Seagate, be sure to get an enterprise or professional grade drive and avoid the Barracuda line or whatever their calling the budget models these days.

Easymode: Use Debian instead.
Hardmode: Remove Unity, install XFCE, go through all your packages and remove all the bloat. Also turn off the Amazon botnet.

Code things. The programming general has a random "thing to program" generator. Give it a spin.

Certain processes may not take advantage of the second CPU.


Check your bootloader.

the games don't have access to Windows-breaking data. Neither does Steam technically, so if it's breaking your boot, something was broken anyway

Nothing was broken. All it takes is installing Steam + Games.

>> No.49186571

Or wait for the AMD equivalent. Either way, it's smart to wait a couple weeks.

>NVIDIA 600/700/800
NVIDIA has better drivers (both closed and open) for Linux.

>> No.49186572

ok anon. Obviously Gabe Newell really hates you and makes sure your IP can only download a special Windows-breaking version of Steam but everyone else on the planet can keep using their normal Steam and be fine.

Just bought a surface pro 3. I need to get a keyboard.

I see listings on ebay for Surface Pro / Surface Pro 2 keybards, are those compatible with the Surface Pro 3? Or do I have to buy the Surface Pro 3 keyboard?

I recently earned this gamepad online. I like using it, until I realized how cheap it really is. The analog stick was sticky until I blew in it really hard, the insulation for the cable wore off at the stress reliever, not to mention the rumble won't work.

I think I can solve the stress relief problem along with the analog stick, but is their any way to get the rumble working? I checked the controller, and their are 2 motors in their. If their's no way to get rumble to work, I'll add one of the motors to my sex machine.

I'll elaborate on that later, but I just want the rumble to work.
