Welcome to /fglt/. We are always open to users of all levels, including absolute beginners.

There are four ways to try GNU/Linux, you can:

0) Install a GNU/Linux OS on a VM (Virtual Machine/VirtualBox) for "safety purposes"
1) Use the Live ISO directly without installing anything, that way, you can get a "full GNU/Linux experience".
2) Dual-boot GNU/Linux with Windows/Mac (recommended if you want to learn more about GNU/Linux)
3) Go balls deep and overwrite everything with GNU/Linux

Before asking, please search for answers to your questions in resources.

Please be civil, notice the "Friendly" in every Friendly GNU/Linux Thread.

Understand that much of your software from Windows will be unavailable, although maybe WINE can make up for it.

>In 1998 when a United Airlines plane was waiting in the queue at Washington Dulles International Airport for take-off to New Orleans (where a Usenix conference was taking place), one man stood up from his seat, demanded that they stop waiting in the queue and be permitted to deplane. Even after orders from the crew and a pilot from the cockpit he refused to sit down. The plane exited the queue and returned to the airport gangway. Security personnel ran onto the plane and removed this man, Richard Stallman, from the plane. After Richard was removed from the plane, everyone else stayed onboard and continued their journey to New Orleans. A few OpenBSD developers were on that same plane, seated very closeby, so we have an accurate story of the events.

FSF wanted to make their own complete OS, saw that Linux made the kernel quite quickly and thought "well shit, it can't be that difficult, let's just finish it".

They then realised that they were too stupid to finish their own kernel, got upset, and wanted to plaster their name over a project they were literally unable to finish.

RMS didn't go after the name until linux blew GNU out of the water, and their own attempts failed hilariously.

Well, it's important. Most people think their OS was made by a student just for fun, while historically it was made by RMS so people can have a free operating system. Both, Linus and the GNU project made an incomplete OS, thrown together it's GNU/Linux, the perfect ground for political discussions, but it simply isn't Linux, since Linux is just a part of the OS.

Everyone manages to get around that "confusing" matter just fine, so when someone calls it Linux and the context makes it 100% clear that they mean an OS and not a kernel, you have no reason to complain.

>100% clear that they mean an OS and not a kernel,
You think that the Linux OS and the Linux kernel are two different things? But that's wrong! A kernel is an operating system; if you refer to Linux, you're always referring to the kernel. The problem is that people don't use the kernel alone, since it's only a part of GNU/Linux. The other parts come from the GNU project, which itself is also an operating system and actually the root of everything, with Linux (or any other kernel) on top of it. Also, naming like Windows or OS X doesn't work with free software, where many people put together their projects to create something complete: You can't tell a Debian GNU/kFreeBSD user that he is using "Linux".

Nice quad-dubs.

Also, if my usage of "we're" is the only thing you can point out, the rest of my argument must have been pretty solid, thanks for acknowledging it.

I know not everyone agrees with the sentiment, but it's a lot more than just me, so I used a plural term.
This is a perfect example of informalities rustling FSF jimmies on a daily basis, because of pure autism.

Don't expect the world to change for your convenience, you must change for it, or face ridicule.
Your freedom of speech is not more important than my freedom to laugh at you in return.

Your reading comprehension is poor. If someone uses a term in place of another, it doesn't mean they think those things are identical.
Nobody is advocating for formal names or documentation to refer to the OS as "Linux", some of us would just like to use the term informally without getting you autists assblasted every 5 minutes.

My point is, if someone says "linux" but it is clear from the context they mean "GNU/Linux", there is no problem.

Much like how Americans refer to their favourite sport as "football" even though the game has very little to do with feet compared to hands, and is played with an ovoid shaped object distinct from a classically defined ball.

You're allowed to be pedantic when it matters, but not when it doesn't, unless you don't mind being frequently laughed at for being "that guy".

Forgive me for not putting my hopes into your community having matured at all in the last 3 months.

RMS didn't work on GNU alone, there were hundreds on contributors. However, the amount of code that Linus himself is responsible for is enormous in comparison.
I'm not saying that automatically means it should be called one thing instead of another, but it should mean that Linus gets more say in the matter, as he is the one individual to have personally contributed the most out of anyone.

Things might be a little different if RMS wasn't so stubborn, and apparently allergic to other people's opinions.

If RMS truly cared about freedom, he'd let you call things whatever the fuck you want to, not what he tells you.

>> No.55009407

The linux way to do it (or maybe it is the unix way) is to use NFS (thats network file system) exports. Check man exports for details but is basically a list of /dir user(options for that user) where the user is an ip adress, range or machine name. NFS can be a cunt if you server is not going to be up the whole time then. The other way (apart from sshfs) is to use samba which generally "just works" better than NFS and also works natively with windows (with some occaisonal difficulties due to assumptions about authentication).

I'm using a PNY USB 3.0 128 GB stick to try and maanufacture a bootable USB key.
However, I can get it to boot once, after which the GRUB goes missing and I get an alert to insert a bootable media.

I've tried with Debian, Ubuntu, and Knoppix, using Unetbootin, live disc to install, desktop install, and YUMI.

When i try to partition from USB FDD to Multi USB HDD, I get an error when writing to volume, "write protected" poking through the command line does not help, I can take disk control, but not volume.

Attempts to partition in installation fail, and SATA internal over USB 3.0 has taken an excess of 24 hours for a debian install.

Are PNY sticks boot locked and for storage only?

I was reading a notice that said bootable media is locked to 32 Gigs or less.
Testing with PNY USB 2.0 8 gig sticks works fine, but results in frequent hangups due to the much smaller data pipe.

Multiple computers were tried, UEFI and normal, it would boot once and then hang loading gnome or xserver.

Attempts to partition with bootice and the installation menu resulted in failures and unrecognized partition tables.

Closest I can figure is the firmware is disabling repartition permission in the stick proper, but that doesn't work since I can still get the one boot on a separate computer before fuckup.

The installation process went fine, but when it rebooted it booted directly to windows. No grub boot screen whatsoever. I don't mind reinstalling (it took me 20 minutes even with my dog distracting me), but I'd like to avoid messing with the partition table.

On debian there is the kbd package that provides an init script which runs

If you have changed the boot order in the bios to point to the usb drive (or whever grub is supposed to be) then it sure shouldn't be going to windows.

Sorry. I expressed myself poorly. I modified te bios to point to the LiveUSB for installing Debian. It's there that the two options (uefi and standard) showed up. I booted the regular one, installed correctly, put grub in the only hard drive and rebooted.

But then it went directly to windows. My initial question was: Should I reinstall Debian with the 'uefi' option of the LiveUSB?

Well it's not superior exactly, just certain (completely necessary) options have been disabled by the gnome team because they are braindead, and most distros have reenabled them in their own packages so as to to not fuck over end users.

"Based on" in a design sense, rather than the underlying libraries, which is why I steered away from saying what version of GTK it was based on.
At one point it was referred to as gnome 2.5, since it's using gnome 3 but has been modified to look and act more like gnome 2.

So, recently I was on reddit (I know, I'll kill myself later) and I came across an interesting argument in a linux thread. I cant find the thread anymore, but I copypastad the argument becasue I dont really understand internal kernal functions that well. My question is, is this guy a windows shill, or does he have any valid arguments:

"In Windows, any I/O operation including to file handles, sockets, or certain other system objects can be made "overlapped", or asynchronous. The OS will start the async I/O operation and update the status in a user-space OVERLAPPED structure accordingly. In addition to this, system I/O objects such as file handles and sockets may be assigned to another kind of object called an I/O completion port, which enqueues notifications that I/O operations on its associated file handles have completed, and their status. Multiple threads can share an I/O completion port and wait for their scheduled I/O operations to complete in a thread-safe manner.

In Linux, by contrast, there is no standard, generally accepted way to do true async I/O, so I/O is done using the standard POSIX calls such as read(2) and write(2). These are always synchronous -- even on O_NONBLOCK fds -- but you can get pretend asynchronicity by setting them O_NONBLOCK and buzzing in a select or epoll loop, interleaving I/O with other processing. Alternatively you can spawn one thread per request but neither give you the flexibility that Win32 gives you.

Just try writing a server with thread-pool allocation in Linux. You can't use the one-thread-per-request method because your worker threads are limited in number. So you will have to use some sort of select/epoll loop and manage all the synchronization yourself." continued...

>> No.55015203

"An I/O completion port would do all this for you and save you CPU time (and hence battery life on portable devices) by putting any thread waiting for its I/O requests to complete to sleep, rather than requiring them to buzz in a loop asking the fds "are you ready yet? are you ready yet? are you ready yet?"

Also, again -- all I/O calls are synchronous. Unix I/O has a notion of "fast" and "slow" devices that has nothing to do with speed; the difference is that I/O on "fast" devices never returns EAGAIN or EWOULDBLOCK; the process goes into uninterruptible sleep (D state in ps) until the entire I/O operation either completes or errors out. I/O to the file system is considered "fast" -- meaning that processes doing file I/O become stuck until the I/O finishes or errors out, which can be a real bummer if your disks are slow (e.g., VMs), flaky, or if you're talking to an NFS server that's gotten wedged.

Later versions of the POSIX standard provide the POSIX aio API, but the most common implementation of that fakes asynchronous I/O by doing synchronous I/O in a subprocess. It's better than the select loop, I guess, but why not save the process-table entry slots by providing real aio primitives in the kernel -- the way Windows does?

This Does Not Happen under Windows because Windows provides real async I/O primitives.

Structured Exception Handling lets you respond to OS-initiated exceptional events (segmentation faults, division by zero, invalid instruction, etc.) with a try/catch mechanism similar to C++ exceptions. It relies on Microsoft-proprietary C++ extensions to operate, however -- but it's still lightyears ahead of the janky signal mechanism used by Unix (and hence Linux)."

That packages are required, recommended or suggested are specified by the package maintainer when the make the package. Required ones are required for the thing to run and to use all functionality of it. Recommended packages are usually things like docs and plugin packages, optional is more of the same I suppose...

Friends, need some help with resolution settings on Ubuntu 16.04 using the open source driver.
When I used Ubuntu 15.10 I always used the proprietary graphics and everything was fine, my resolution was detected as 2560x1080 60Hz. When I updated to 16.04, knowing that I would have to use the open source driver, I noticed that my resolution options were capped on 1920x1080 60 Hz. I ran some the xrandr commands to force my resolution into 2560x1080 60 Hz, as it was before, but the screen started to blink and I couldn't use the PC. I tried with 2560x1080 40 Hz and it worked fine.
Why does this happen? Has anyone experienced the same? How can I fix it?
I don't really want to roll back to 15.10 please help.

for fedora? i would install the free and nonfree rpmfusion packages and install mpv (set it to default media player) and install chrome and whatever other programs you need, and you're pretty much good to go

fedora is the distro that gave me the fewest problems, but for some reason people love mint idk why

even if you get a hankering for vidya, playonlinux/WINE runs fine on fedora, in fact i'm pretty sure steamOS is based on fedora

there's a software store like ubuntu's, where you can find pretty much anything you need, i use simple scan for my old hp printer/scanner and it works great. fedora also doesn't come with a lot of bloat.

the installation process can be kind of confusing, and getting a liveusb on fedora is a little bit more complicated than ubuntu in my experience, and the install wizard is a bit more complex too but it's a very stable and secure OS, both ubuntu and fedora are stable and easy to use and secure but my preference is fedora (security is why i shied away from mint even though i probably like it more than fedora)

And to fix them, like I said, you need experience. Enough experience either to google stuff more precisely or to even fix stuff by yourself.
There's no guide "How to Linux", as there is no guide "How to life". There's too much to cover and a much greater variety of issues than any guide or wiki can contain.
