Users of all levels are welcome to ask questions about Linux and share their experiences. BSD & Unix friends welcome. GNU people allowed but not to interject or shill for Stallman.

*** Please be civil ***

Before asking for help, please check our list of resources. If you would like to try out Linux you can do one of the following:
0 - Install a Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine.
1 - Use a live image and to boot directly into the Linux distribution without installing anything.
2 - Dual boot the Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS.
3 - Go balls deep and replace everything with Linux.

Since I fell dangerously deep into software freedom autism, it became painful for me to even listen when people discuss about technology.
All they discuss about is which laptop display is more "sexy" and how convenient is to use touchpad in latest macbook.
And about which proprietary le meme messenger has less ads.
Basically, they don't care about underlying ethics of anything. If something works in windows BECAUSE it's open source (and therefore it's easy to port shit to any OS), they think it means Windows is superior, not this particular software they run and enjoy.
But when something not works in their laptop because MANUFACTURER didn't released proper hardware specs, but sold them directly to microsoft instead, they conclude that Linux sucks, not this particular device.
Like, you know, I just wanna KILL THE FUCK THEM ALL.
The worst part is I was just like them less then 2 years ago. And now i'm more radical than Stallman. Unironically thinking about developing a license which will forbid code to be even executed on proprietary operating systems.
Is there a way to feel less horrible when thinking about how some things are fucked up (besides killing myself?)

No, it's dangerous to do on a living system, because you'll need to recompile every package including kernel with something like clang, and if you forgot something before reboot, even GRUB's UUID's matter – you fucked.

Listen. Linus thinks that the point of the GPL is being an Open Source license, quoting Linus "getting source code back". But actually the GPL is a license made to protect freedoms. Through the years, companies found some ways to circument the GPL and release products with GPL software legally without giving the users the required freedoms. While the GPLv2 allows this, the GPLv3 fixes those loopholes. Here a quick overview:

>GPL3 differs from GPL2 in following things:

>1) Patents, i.e. you can't circumvent GPL3 by using GPL software as something you build your software on, but then don't share it because while source code may be available, you patent the code. It was possible with GPL2.

>2) DMCA, i.e. you can't circumvent GPL3 with using DMCA which makes circumventing DRM illegal in US. It was possible with GPL2.

>3) Tivoization, i.e. you can't circumvent GPL3 using digital encryption, when you release the source code, but not the necessary cryptographic keys.

So, the GPLv3 fixes these things, keeping the purpose of the GPL, which is protecting freedom, in tact. Linus feels that the FSF "sneaks" new rules into the license which have nothing to do with the license at all, so, I guess Linus doesn't really know what it's all about.

I feel you.

I was a full OSX user until I had a boss who was a free software and free hardware freak.
I began using linux at that work, and FOSS alternatives for practically everything I used.
I went full linux at home and began experimenting with distros but that snowballed to buying an X200 and librebooting it, and now that is the only computer i use. Even for work. I feel terrible using anything else. My boss used to be the FOSS freak but now there's me rambling like YOU USE BLOBBED LINUX AND I BET YOU DON HAVE THE DRIVERS ON DAT SO I DONT THINK YOU ARE FREE YOUR COMPUTERS ARE PIECES OF SHIT.

For unrelated reasons,that job ended, but in my new job I put as a condition that I had to use only FOSS, and for now I'm succeeding. 1yr and a half now.

You're trying to dictate what the community does on 4chan.
That's not a compromise.

Look anon, what your problem is is that you are WAY too attached to the idea of this thread being its own identity.
Quit looking at this place as your family and realize that it's just a communication platform and nothing more. If you can't handle being mixed in with people who have different ideas from yourself then you seriously need to remember what website you're using.

What we need is to keep things the way they were but just make the OP neutral.

Fucking what? Did you read the post you are replying to? Do you seriously think there is only one person on /g/ other than yourself? How do expect to convince anyone of anything if you argue against positions that they don't actuall hold?

The audio on my Gahnoo/Linus pops everytime it (what I assume) enters/exits sleep, tried googling and doing whatever they said to do, but nothing fixes it.

Any of you deal with this shit before?

>> No.61864419

>>61864394
By pops you just mean it makes that sound, but otherwise still functions correctly?

I don't think I'll be any help but you should probably say whether you're using pulseaudio or what

>> No.61864434

>>61864419
Yeah, it makes a popping sound, and when no audio is playing, it takes a couple of seconds before it pops again, which is why I think it's sleeping.

Ah shit, of course, sorry, running pulseaudio.

>> No.61864472

>>61864434
I don't know. But a complete shot in the dark here would be to set flat-volumes=no in the pulseaudio config.
I just know that with it on volumes can get VERY loud unexpectedly when starting applications.
Turning it off is a better option overall anyway, it's more intuitive and similar to how volume works on other operating systems, and should really be the default.

>> No.61864486

>>61864472
Is flat-volume what would be called loudness equalization on something like Windows?

>> No.61864560

>>61864486
No. I think with it enabled your volume controls just effect the application volume while flat-volumes disabled changes the volume on the hardware slider which effects all applications.
Another thing that comes to mind now is your volume under output devices (in pavucontrol) might be set too high. If you don't already have pavucontrol you should install it.

>> No.61864646

>>61864560
Oh I see. I think I found a way to circumvent the issue, in default.pa, there was a module called "module-suspend-on-idle", commenting it did the trick.

Not sure how good of an idea it is to disable the suspend or if it has any side-effects, but atleast there are no pops now.

>> No.61864688

>>61864646
That's good. You still might want to check what your output volume is set at though because it can go above 100% and that can cause crackles and pops

>Ok. There's GNU in Linux. I don't really think it deserves to be first in the fucking name though. Maybe Linux/GNU? or Linux+GNU?
The GNU Project is a bigger component of a GNU/Linux system than Linux, so it should be GNU/Linux.

>>61861936
Linux would be worthless without GNU.
