"Respects your freedom first and foremost" refers to how Debian comes with 100% free software by default, including a deblobbed Linux kernel.
This is enforced by their social contract, part of which served as the basis for the Open Source Definition:

"Decisions are made by the community instead of a single entity." refers to their constitution which lays out how decisions are made in order to not give one person or group too much power:

>> No.57283459

Debian's Social Contract states the goal of making Debian entirely free software, and Debian conscientiously keeps nonfree software out of the official Debian system. However, Debian also provides a repository of nonfree software. According to the project, this software is “not part of the Debian system,” but the repository is hosted on many of the project's main servers, and people can readily find these nonfree packages by browsing Debian's online package database and its wiki.

There is also a “contrib” repository; its packages are free, but some of them exist to load separately distributed proprietary programs. This too is not thoroughly separated from the main Debian distribution.

Previous releases of Debian included nonfree blobs with Linux, the kernel. With the release of Debian 6.0 (“squeeze”) in February 2011, these blobs have been moved out of the main distribution to separate packages in the nonfree repository. However, the problem partly remains: the installer in some cases recommends these nonfree firmware files for the peripherals on the machine.

Can software break hardware?

I got yelled at by Senpai over at /tpg/ a week ago, now I'm asking /fglt/ because friendly.

I don't know anything about Linux, can get my way around Windows and I figured I'd give it a try, it seemed interesting. I, for the fun of it, tried, and succeeded, to install Gentoo on my Thinkpad, it was too bothersome/complicated for me, so I installed Arch. I had no idea what I was doing, but the system was working, so I figured it was fine and seldom used it, swapping between it and my Windows install (physically swapping the HDD that is). I did notice, however, that the fans on my laptop were running much quieter than on Windows, I figured that it was because the system was more efficient or something, honestly I didn't think much of it.
Now. A month ago, I started getting random BSOD on Windows, figured I had to format, so I decided against it and to use only my Arch install. It did work for about a week. The next day, the laptop wouldn't boot anymore, motherboard failure.

I got a new Thinkpad a week ago, but I'm afraid of installing Arch again because I'm scared that the software, not correctly configured, could have killed my laptop. Maybe the fans setup wasn't done properly and the laptop got too hot while in standby?

What should I do /fglt/. Could Arch have killed my laptop? Should I stay away from Linux because Windows Baby? The only reason I got into Linux was out of interest, I'd like to learn to code and I figured it would be much more concrete on Linux, I always liked to tweak and customize everything.

Thanks for reading /fglt/, have a cute anime for your trouble.

>> No.57284612

you might need to specifiy bitrate

>> No.57284674

gentoo killed it because you trashed her and switched to arch

>> No.57284691

not really sure, the only times i've run into dropped frames are when;
- the input is weird and gives me some/lots of ... can't quite remember what the error actually said, but it contained some floating point number under 0, and probably "timestamp" or "pts", adding -vsync 1 seems to do the job for these
- setting the framerate after the input, this causes a conversion, so frames and dropped or duped to suit

ps. you've specified -x265-params but haven't actually written any

also, while trying to find the error mention above, i ran into a similar one regarding invalid timestamps, and the fix for that one was "-fflags +genpts" (before -i)
couldn't hurt to try it

>> No.57284759

DIdn't realize the thing about -x265-params, as I said I wrote it myself by copying stuff here and there from the net. I'll try with the timestamps fix, sounds good actually.

>> No.57284896

>some floating point number under 0
under 1, rather, like "0.89283737"
haven't seen it since using -vsync 1, so i struggle to remember the rest

if +genpts does what i think it does (scans through the input to generate timestamps) it'll probably take a bit longer to actually start encoding

>> No.57284901

You should noticed the overheat and as i know the fan should speed up automatically on every TP and if it's overheat it should restart to save the cpu. I use a TP too with arch and i have no problems with the cooling. Are you sure it's the motherboard?

>> No.57285158

Yup, according to the beeps, it's a motherboard failure.
System won't boot to bios, even without a HDD.

What confuses me, however, is that the thinklight and the leds still works.

Also, yeah, the fans would have probably kicked in if it overheat would have been the problem.
It was a T400 so, maybe it just died by natural cause.
I guess I'll install Arch, or maybe Antergos this time, on the new T420.

>is it possible to do a gpu passthru if you only have igpu?
No. You need two GPUs. For example one discrete GPU and one internal GPU like those that are integrated into the CPU. Pretty much every single Intel CPU on the market that isn't X99 or Xeon has a GPU on the CPU.

So if you have a 6700K and a NVIDIA/AMD card or something similar, you're good to go.

>if not, i imagine it would be possible to do a gpu passthru with an external thunderbolt gpu yea? does linux even support thunderbolt 3?
Yes it does. At least according to https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Dell_XPS_13_(2016)#Thunderbolt_3_.2F_USB_3.1

As for the external GPU - I'm very certain that's possible. You can either just pass the entire thunderbolt PCI hub into the VM, or maybe just only do the GPU. Either way it should work perfectly fine.

I just use rsync. Is there any reason you want to put them in an archive?

>> No.57290593

It depends on so much things.
Want compress large files?
Want compress small files?
Want compress directories?
Want keep permissions?
Want best compression?
Want fast compression?

Either you learn to compress or just do tar.gz (slightly compressed, keeps permissions, max speed).

Should I reinstall antergoes with XFCE after it detected ONE bad sector on the HDD? not sure what DE to use anymore, I kind of want KDE Neon but not sure what distro uses it?

>> No.57292245

KDE neon is its own distro, it pulls packages from Ubuntu and has its own repo for the KDE software

Very simple question to you all I'm sure, but I run the command (IN GENTOO):

emerge --ask gnome-extra/cinnamon

And I'm given the error message of:

All ebuilds that could satisfy "gnome-extra/cinnamon" have been masked

# Then there is a list of the versions of Cinnamon and there is the main thing that I pointed out:

(masked by: invalid: REQUIRED_USE: USE flag 'python_targets_python3_3' is not in IUSE)

I've looked on the Gentoo wiki, even the Cinnamon install page on the wiki and there is a brief part about this error but I still can't fix it, I read a bit about masks and when I do:

ls /etc/portage/package.mask

I get:

libtool openrc perl

Nothing about gnome-extra or any packages like so

I've been trying to fix this for the last 2-3 hours and it's really pissing me off, any help is appreciated, thanks :-)

Does linux typically involve more work troubleshooting on laptops vs PC? As far as drivers and whatnot goes?

I only have a laptop, I have mint working on it and I can use it for what I need, but there is still an absolute ton of niggly little things that need fixing. It's starting to feel like a job.

>> No.57293054

I tried using Linux mint on my laptop but there is a weird double image whenever I minimize things, sort of like what could be described as lagging how do I fix this?

>> No.57293391

You could try compton.

I either have autism or completely forgot how to do symb links.

echo Hello World

sudo ln -s ~/Downloads/hello-world /bin/hello

in order to run hello it requires me to do "sh hello"

Not sure if you're still here, but I tried adding those flags and it didn't help. If anyone has any more ideas please let me know.

>> No.57294307

still here, can you provide a sample?

say, cut out a minute like with;
ffmpeg -i input.mp4 -t 1:00 -c copy -map 0 cut.mp4
and post it somewhere, like jii.moe

ensure the copy does the same thing first, of course

Okay but since this thread is gonna 404 I'll post it to the next one
