if you think Pulse doesn't fix anything you either never used Linux back when it was straight up ALSA or ALSA/JACK or you only used one set of hardware that was (luckily) supported out of the box.

I had audio problems with alsa and installing pulseaudio seemed to clear them up. Or maybe it was the changes to my kernel that I did when installing it.

Quick complicated question or simeple I have no idea at this point

archlinux here

I have static IP
I dont remember how I set it up
i went by wiki and it talks about /etc/systemd/network/..
its empty for me
I searched and found my interface name in /etc/conf.d/
and there is set my IP

I think I went by some guide that went the old init way
instead of keeping with systemd

is my assumption correct? should I now somehow revert from this init sytem or some shit?
is it even doing something, maybe its juts there and not being used in anything...

I was in a previous thread, trying to get fglrx working in Debian. I finally got the driver loaded, and the firmware installed. Whenever I run "gksudo amdcccle" it freaks out.

You know... I never wanted to switch to linux as my main operative system. I wanted to dual boot. I wanted to keep playing games. I wanted so much more out of life. I tried for an hour or two the first time to figure out how to partition my HDD so I could have both. It seemed too complicated, and I was going to give up. But instead, I said fuck it, and just install linux. This has been many years ago, and I've tried pretty much every distro anyone has heard of. But I have never once gone back to windows. So long now that I can't even help my friends out when they have a problem with a windows computer. Three times now, I've been given windows computers to fix, and have inevitably given them back with fresh installs of xubuntu. Two of which ended up paying a shop to reinstall windows, and trying to make me pay for it. The other friend that I've known almost my whole life came back to me the day after recieving his fresh new OS, demanding that I help him fix it. I told him it was fixed and that he would be much happier now. He hasn't spoken to me since, but I've heard through the grape vine that he still uses xubuntu to this day.

You may hear complains from system administrators about this new thing being hard to understand because it has a crappy syntax, but that is not THE reason.

Those who know about journal and other stuff in systemd fear this is going to make a backdoor to Linux. By having a monolithic, omnipresent status, systemd is a backward step for Linux. Is not only going to get nasty to repair systemd if something is broken, is more easy to find and exploit a backdoor than fixing it.

Now, there is this thing called logging which I presume you gentlemen heard of, well, now not only your logs are going to get corrupted by systemd "journal" but you won't be able to see systemd's logs because they are binary, thus, you need an special program to see them. How in heaven will you know the shit does what you tell it to and is not been hacked?

Not him, but stable Debian is notorious for having ancient packages in its repos, so unstable gets you the newest shit, and iirc "unstable" is set up like a rolling release, so you get to be cutting/bleeding edge like Arch without having to touch Pacman.

This doesn't mean what you think it means.

Think about it: why do men bend over backwards for women IRL? Because they want to fuck.

That's not possible on the internet. As an anon or a username, nobody gets special treatment. You have to post good stuff to get a positive response. Women get used to getting attention just for being female, and can feel like they're being discriminated against when judged on the quality of their posts (or code).

Some of them deal with this by attention whoring, i.e. LOOK AT ME I'M A GIRL ON THE INTERNET! This irrelevant attachment of their identity does not contribute to the discussion or project at hand. Since there's no chance of lewds over the internet, nobody is willing to put up with an attention whoring shitposter.

TITS or GTFO is supposed to be offensive and make women it's told to feel like they have no value apart from how their body looks. Some newfags use it wrong, but it's just a stronger way of saying "your gender/identity is not relevant, stop shitposting about it".

And if he ain't big enough just fucking ignore him, because he no longer has any value.

All you have to do is spend a couple hours on /b/ to see that young men are the real attention whores, and equally nothing important to offer the world.

But you'll never accept that it's bullshit logic. Women do have plenty of value outside of sex objects. But they've been conditioned to believe they don't, so only a few radicals try to stick out from the crowd, and appear crazy, because well... They are. I'm no SJW, but getting pissed off at women for wanting seperate communities where they can feel comfortable is just asinine.

Tripfags almost always get shit thrown at them whenever they post, regardless of gender, unless they actually contribute good stuff. I agree that we need more effective tools against male attention whores though.

Nobody wants less women in technology, except maybe the macfags who prefer men. We want less attention whores who bring along identity politics and expect to be treated like a delicate snowflake and have their feelings tip-toed around.

A single SJW screaming about imaginary oppression and trying to demand an existing community change to fit her whims is doing more harm to women in technology than a hundred genuinely sexist neckbeards and a thousand more who laugh at their jokes but don'tagree with their views.
