Anyone got experience with those no-brand tablets offered for basically nothing on ebay?
I don't mean the Chink stuff, but the ones that simply have no brand at all. You can easily find 10" tablets with a 1.7 GHz quad core and keyboard + sleeve + pen for something like 60-100€. From the speccs, that would be perfectly fine for what I want to do with it, but I am really worried that they will all go into meltdown mode as soon as you open a video or fall apart if you touch them the wrong way.

Windows user here.
I've been messing around with Linux distros in VMware for a while, and I've really been toying around with the idea of making the switch to avoid the inevitable shitstorm that is Windows 10.

While I've been playing around with Linux for a bit, I also understand that running in an automatically set up virtual machine is a lot simpler than dealing with a real install.
Aside from Jewbuntu, which is the best beginner Linux distro to install?

What I'd still like to do:
I'd like to be able to have my user folder located on a separate drive from my install, as I use an SSD.
I also use a CRT monitor as a second display for retro gay men which I switch between 640x480, 3840x480, 3648x448, and 3072x448 depending on what I'm doing with it.

Any distro suggestions?

It depends on the speed of your connection. For a normal one, wi-fi n is enough (450mbps, ~55mb/s). If you have a 1gbps connecting though, you want one that supports the ac standard as well.
Aside from these, it's just coverage area (number / quality of antennas), physical size, brand and advanced stuff like firewall and a bunch of other shit you shouldn't care about.

You don't need a book until you get into more advanced topics.

First learn IP subnetting, TCP/IP and OSI models, how routers/switches/hubs/bridges work, how dns works.

Then move on to more advanced topics like ipsec, mpls, ospf, bgp, firewalls, load balancing. CBT Nuggets has a decent video series on cisco networking that covers much of this.

>> No.50165614

Commonly 3 pin molex or fan header.

The fans themselves should not have male connectors. Typically (almost always) a fan has a female connector (3 or 4 pin). Can't you connect the fans to the fan headers on your motherboard instead of messing around with whatever's in your hand?

The easiest way to a working gui is to use startx and .xinitrc

add the launch command to ~/.xinitrc (depends on the window manager), then run startx. If you get errors, post your xorg log and I will take a look at it.

that will give you a ton of statements which you can copy and paste into the ide and run in one go. any selects which fail will result in 'bad: viewname' being printed.

Ready for some stupid questions?

I just run a CPU stress test on my computer. It reached 50°C and was very slowly creeping up (the usual temperature is around 20°C). Should I feel comfortable with this? How do you make an educated guess on the highest it would reach, or must one leave it running for an hour to see it? At what temperature should I shut it down? And what temperature actually damages it?

I just got re-united with my computer, so it was very dirty, and before cleaning it the Windows Indexer got it severely overheat. I reached 90°C, and then an obvious hardware failure made it spike to "255°C". Could any harm be done? Should I worry about the mis-reading? It only seems to happen when it's severely overheating anyways. A friend of mine recommended me CoreTemp, but I've seen the Overheat protection fail and had to manually turn the computer off that one time. Should I use another software? Do I worry too much?

I'm using Arch and TeamSpeak3 doesn't seem to respect the BROWSER environment variable for opening links.

I have palemoon and chromium installed but I'm using palemoon for all my browsing. I want links from the chat to open inside palemoon but instead they always open in chromium.

It works if I remove chromium and tests with other browsers have shown me that Teamspeak just uses the first browser it can find in alphabetic order. How can I fix this?

mint is okay. not recommending ubuntu cause unity is quite ressource heavy while not really being a good interface. The main concern when choosing a first-time distro really is how good the results are when you google an issue. Since mint and ubuntu are very similar underneath, lots of solutions for one will apply to the other as well. I recommend not putting any mission critical data on it (or make sure to back it up), so you can feel comfortable breaking things. If you're the kind of person who gets better at things and is actually willing to learn stuff about the system, you can switch over to arch or something like Debian or Fedora after a few months, depending on what you want your system to do. I did the same thing (switching to arch after months of ubuntu) two weeks ago and setting up arch was almost a breeze, cause I knew what I wanted, how stuff works and was able to fix occasions where i fucked stuff up..

My lil brother got 450€ and wants to buy a PS4 but I told him that he better gets a PC (he will need it sooner or later anyway) so I checked logical increments and decided for this:
>AMD Athlon X4 860K 3.7Ghz
>Gigabyte GA-F2A88X-D3H
>Gigabyte R7 370 Gaming G1 OC Windforce 2GB GDDR5
>Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 1TB SATA3
>Seasonic S12II 520W 80 Plus Bronze
All together is 440€, I already have a 1333MHz 4GB RAM module and a case to spare.
This will run on a 1600 x 900 monitor
Will that outperform a PS4?
Should I get more/different RAM?

What's the best way to figure out hardware "equivalents" or "comparables" when looking at system requirements for games/software?

I'm pretty retarded with hardware, so when it lists a model as a requirement for something and says "or equivalent" I have no idea how to figure out what the equivalents are or how mine compares, sometimes even if it's the same manufacturer but I have a different model, I can't tell if mine's newer or older than the one listed.

Just started learning about webservers.
I deleted the default 000-default.conf file in Apache, under the /etc/apache2/sites-available/ directory.

Aside from purging/re-installing apache, is there a way to download this file from somewhere on the internet?
Or better yet, do I need this file at all if I plan to have other .conf files with their own information?

Is it safe to do a S.M.A.R.T. test on a PS3 hard drive? Will it initialize? I just want to make sure the data will still show when I put back in the console. The reason I want to do this is because I keep getting lockups and the drive is a bit noisy.

ok personal tech support
i'm trying to act on notifications from firefox

i have a plugin that sends desktop notifications, there is a title and a body text but it's too short for what i need. there is an onclick and data parameter, the onclick is set to copy data to the clipboard.

ok so i'm trying to monitor for notifications from command line with
bus-monitor "interface='org.freedesktop.Notifications'"
but all i get is
method call sender=:1.114 -> dest=:1.41 serial=75 path=/org/freedesktop/Notifications; interface=org.freedesktop.Notifications; member=Notify
string "Firefox"
uint32 0
string ""
string "title"
string "text..."

so how can i access the sweet sweet data parameter that gets set by the plugin?

Hey, my buddy and I are building a PC and we're wondering what kind of processor to get. We're thinking about a low-end i5, as our video card should take most of the load. My question is, could we get away with a decent i3? How does the processor bottleneck performance when gaming and normal use?

I thought about that after I posted; however, I frequent /g/ and have never even looked at /diy/. The course I'm taking is called 'welding technologies' and involves quite a bit of robotics so I thought just maybe I could make it work.

But /diy/ does sound more appropriate. Maybe I'll check it out...

I've decided to try to learn Java and write Android apps and attempt to sell them on the Google Play store.

I have some experience with C++(passed two classes of it, but haven't programmed anything in years). I have no experience with Java. What's a good starting point for learning Java?

Also, has anyone here had any success doing what I'm going to try to do?

So is there any way to stop BTSync and megasync stop modifying the Last Accessed attribute of files, on ubuntu?
Because I have a script that saves a backup of some folders with Attic and those two are making it save a new one like thrice per minute. I managed to reduce it to once every minute by making the script put a backup name based on HH:MM instead of HH:MM:SS, but having so many backups weighting 220 bytes and filling the archive unnecessarily is annoying as fuck.
