Can someone fucking please walk me through MSGS? I downloaded a fucking ISO from the god damn wiki, looked online for instructions, followed them, the first time it installed with no changes, and the next time the USB drive wont even boot when used as a boot device.

I keep getting told by superficially smart people itt that ltsc is a trap and to use education but I am getting rather sick of it exploding every time I try to work with it. why cant those jews over in MS leave me alone. I just want to play video games not be part of the botnet.

The iso I am working with is labeled "education" (though this appears to mean little in msmg's list of installed .wims) from the client that downloads isos provided by the pastebin. Msmg is likewise from there. I extract the iso into the dvd folder in place, mount the source, and use the options in fucking order.

Well I guess you're in the right thread. The answer to the first question is no. For a few reasons, but your next question is one of them. Chips with pins are PGA while chips with nubs are LGA. I don't think Intel even makes anything with PGA sockets anymore. Even if they were on the same socket style, they wouldn't be the same chipset and therefore not compatible with the same motherboards. Also you're modern i3 is likely more powerful than an upwards to decade old i7 mobile chip, so you shouldn't do that to begin with.

Google Test seems to assume that you're building it using the Microsoft SDK (headers and compiler) on Windows. While MinGW could link that source file (because the _stricmp import comes from msvcrt.dll, which MinGW links to instead of the Visual C++ library), it's missing from MinGW's standard C library headers. It's ugly, but you could work around that by adding a definition to googletest/include/gtest/internal/gtest-port.h before the offending line manually:
#ifndef _MSC_VER
extern "C" int _stricmp(const char *, const char *);

This assumes the codebase doesn't use more underscored Microsoft variants of POSIX/BSD functions.

For your second problem, you should also look at the LNK2019 errors before that line. Often it's a problem of a wrong binary type (console application, DLL) in the project, or missing link libraries. Did you run CMake accordingly again?

I haven't tweaked PC since i was around 15, so i have forgotten most things PC related.
My current PC has a HDD and runs Windows 7. Now i want my games to load faster and thus i want to buy a SSD (a basic Samsung 860 Evo 500GB).
My question is the following: is it possible to install games separately on the SSD and have the rest of my shit on my HDD? I don't have any issues with Windows, it's just that some games are loading slower from a HDD.

>> No.71568937

Yes. Almost everyone would do the opposite thing (migrate Windows to SSD and leave games on the hard drive which are large and don't benefit from improved load times) as your net benefit would be much larger, but it's possible.
For example with Steam games, you can create a new library on the SSD and then move games using [Move Install Folder] over there. Blizzard games can be simply moved if you set the new location in their launcher. Some games need to be reinstalled at their new location.

So last night with the league update (I know) after a game would exit, my Nvidia control panel color settings stopped working, but I just had to go back in the panel and disable/reenable to get it to work again.

This morning, my color settings weren't applied when I started my PC. I went to do the usual trick but it was saying they were already applied. Disabling/reenabling doesn't do anything, and if I try to move the sliders the program crashes. If I select the default it will let me apply, but If I try to choose the custom settings no apply button will appear. All the OS color profiles and settings are disabled. Anyone else had this?

>> No.71570337

First, you should try and see whether upgrading from Win7 just works. It no longer works on pirated versions, but if you're still running on an old unique license key it probably will still accept it and convert to a digital license bound to your mainboard. Otherwise refer to the links in the OP for activation.
You can use the official Microsoft tool or uup.rg-adguard.net to download a Win10 installation medium, no need to torrent anything.

Are you inquiring about running your own Debian mirror? Because that's taking a bit of disk space, currently about 450 GB for amd64 + all alone.
If yes, apt-mirror is your tool.
Otherwise, for automation of updates and upgrades, see apt-cron.

>> No.71570397

i think you have to do an 'upgrade' install first, then the digital license is setup, then you can do clean installs in the future

I'm fiddling with win10 because reasons, but explorer craps out and dies. Thumbnails refuse to load, the "progress bar" never completes, it's as slow as fuck.

>> No.71572432

DRI is the name for the whole infrastructure which has moved graphic card drivers from the X server (which had to directly talk to the hardware and therefore run as root) into the Linux kernel (from where it got ported to BSDs and OpenSolaris). DRM is both the name for the kernel interface and any particular driver (they're under drivers/gpu/drm in the kernel source tree and your modules directory).
There's some confusion because "DRM" was at first just a way to access OpenGL hardware while 2D rendering still went through X drivers; also the proprietary NVIDIA and ATI drivers used their own kernel module and a custom X driver and OpenGL library in the past which circumvented all of this (the NVIDIA driver still prefers to do that unless you explicitly turn on DRM support).

How will windows ever recover?

>> No.71573465

It's a bit complicated. The kernel side handles all 2D and 3D primitives the GPU supports, as well as power management and KMS (switching video modes).
In userspace, you have the libdrm library for talking to the kernel as well as modules for specific kernel drivers (libdrm_intel1, libdrm_nouveau2 etc.) which already have knowledge about what the kernel side implements. The Mesa library offers an OpenGL/Vulkan API to applications which then gets translated to GPU commands and dispatched using DRI drivers which in turn use to libdrm to talk to the hardware.
So we didn't really move everything into the kernel, basically just the parts associated with GPU control and not the parts that actually create images. Only on the level of an application speaking X11, Wayland or OpenGL these issues are abstracted away.

It's always pre-installed. Maybe it's even lacking the option to create a recovery stick from the installed system.
In case it's coming with a lot of OEM crapware on top of Microsoft's shit, you might want to do a clean install on the new SSD anyway.

Doubtful. You can configure Linux to boot to RAM entirely, but it's probably not trivial except on distros explicitly configured for that, which are mostly live distros, and if you're doing that you're already booting off a USB anyway so you're good.
Either way you're gonna have to connect the two drives to one OS somehow. If you don't want to take out your SSD, you're gonna have to connect your HDD to your laptop. That could take the shape of somehow sharing the entire drive over the network, for example, though physically connecting it is likely to be much more straightforward.

Learn what a TTY in linux is.

1) use linux mint
2) Create new OS user account (no password because why use passwords?) named "porn"
3)Press CTRL+ALT+F1 (its from F1 to F7)
4) Type in the name of the account so porn
5)type in startx
6)congratulations brows the internet where every cockie and shit is isolated to this OS account.
7)After finishing delete the OS account and brows in a new account the internet for a different reason.

Was this so hard?
All tracking is localized to this 1 newly created account and once its deleted the account all tracking is lost.

Spawn accounts for different reasons like work or 4chan etc.
Browser plugins are a meme and a wast of time.

Coinbase is the sleaziest company to crawl from the pits of the scam that is cryptoshit. The "assets" you "own" on Coinbase likely don't even exist in the capacity that is claimed. You should absolutely withdrawal to your own wallet (so that your assets actually exist). Their business model assumes that people will "buy" their crypto and only trade it back to them, making them rich from the value differential in assets neither party actually possesses. If that's not bad enough, they also use your money (actual dollars) for weeks interest free during their week+ long "fund clearing" periods.

I am trying to troubleshoot eGPU/VR performance.

>ThinkPad X380 Yoga, max spec
>GTX 1070 (Gigabyte GV-N1070G1-GAMING-8GD)
>Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box 350W
>4-lane TB3
>16GB DDR4-2400
>M.2 NVMe
>700Mbps net
>HTC Vive

I am mostly playing VRChat on the Vive, which is very CPU-heavy with poor multithreading and just badly optimized in general. I typically get 10-15fps, should be 30-45 I think. I get 80-90fps in VRChat's desktop (non-VR) mode at 1440p.

Once in a while I play non-VR games at 1440p. I tested Mirror's Edge Catalyst and got around 25fps on low settings. Runs at [email protected] on ultra with a 1070 in a desktop.

Low GPU load and low CPU clock so I am pretty sure the main issue is CPU throttling. The X380Y has a history of throttling problems even at low temps. Recent BIOS updates seem to have mostly fixed it for most people. They've improved my performance a bit, but not much. My CPU hits 80deg at load so at least it is no longer throttling early.

I've tried undervolting with ThrottleStop but only got -50mV CPU and -15mV iGPU before I started getting BSODs. I read someone else got -130mV CPU and -60mV iGPU stable on the same laptop/CPU... what gives?

When I try to check "Speed Shift - EPP" in ThrottleStop I immediately BSOD. GPU-Z says SST is enabled though and ThrottleStop says it's at 128 so I guess that's fine?

Additionally, I've tried the following tweaks for VRChat performance: using Unity's Desktop Low preset, putting the VR desktop mirror on an external monitor (eGPU is slow rendering on the internal display... I have it off entirely), reducing the VR desktop mirror resolution, minimizing the VR desktop mirror, running the VRChat exe directly without Steam, increasing VRChat.exe's process priority, disabling Nvidia's overlay, disabling my iGPU in Device Manager, disabling the Vive's bluetooth/camera. No applications or background processes running besides VRChat, SteamVR, and most of the default Windows 10 junk.

Any ideas?

>> No.71583742

Ran out of characters. I have a couple other issues.

Pretty frequently in VRChat, and sometimes in other VR games, my Vive screen turns completely grey for around 30 seconds and then fixes itself. I think it usually happens when performance is bad. Unplugging the Vive's USB cable and plugging it back in fixes it immediately (don't have to wait 30 seconds). So... USB bandwidth issue? Vive is my only USB device, 3.0 port. Doesn't seem to be a common problem so I'm thinking it is eGPU-related.

Worlds and avatars in VRChat load very slowly, about twice as slow as other people near me geographically. My network is fast, and other applications are fine. Maybe it is just related to my CPU problems.

Thanks for the help.

It's a display error. The install size is a ballpark number that has been there since XP and never worked that great for anything not installed with Windows Installer.

If it's just the images, it's because the slow is2 image servers are back. Get yourself a userscript that rewrites all images back to Cloudflare URLs. You don't need the full 4chan X for that, a simple script like this (which doesn't rewrite thumbnails, which are usually fast enough) will already do:
// ==UserScript==
// @name 4chan Rewrite image links
// @namespace whoisthisforechan
// @match *://boards.4chan.org/*
// @match *://boards.4channel.org/*
// @grant none
// ==/UserScript==
function rewriteLink(el) {
let replacedlink = el.href.replace(/\/is\d?\.4chan\.org\//, '/i.4cdn.org/');
el.href = replacedlink;
document.querySelectorAll('a.fileThumb').forEach(e => rewriteLink(e));
document.querySelectorAll('div.fileText > a').forEach(e => rewriteLink(e));

Otherwise, have a look at the network tab of the F12 browser console what exactly loads slow.

Depends on what you're doing, if you want to hack things join a local wargaming or CTF club, or try to enter a competition. If you do really well, great, if you embarass yourself, watch other people and figure out what you need to go learn more about. Breaking into things is harder than keeping people out at a very basic level, any idiot can configure fail2ban and mandatory access control, or whatever spicy linux security software is out this week. However, creating a truly secure system means that you have to have an intimate understanding of how system security is bypassed or defeated. I would argue that offensive security is the only meaningful part of the field. Development and deployment of security tools both revolve around the current methods used to break into stuff. DEFCON talks are pretty base level, you should be able to understand most or all of those, and they're easily available online.

>> No.71587529

Your motherboard should have inputs to control fan speed, there are also external controllers that can branch those ports to control many fans based on load. If you want quiet fans you should in general go larger, they'll move more air at a lower RPM, but just read reviews somewhere and pick whatever fans you want.

4-pin connectors have PWM capability, which is the only acceptable way to control fan speed. You can adjust fans with 3-pin connectors by varying the voltage supplied, but they will peform poorly.

The first step would be to create an image of the whole filesystem to operate on, given enough space.
That said, I would try to increase the partition at least to the size that the filesystem was supposed to be after shrinking first. Did you run e2fsck afterwards? According to the mke2fs man page, -S merely creates new empty superblocks and group descriptors. It's e2fsck's task to do the recovery and repopulate them from the inode tables and block/inode bitmaps. If you're unlucky, mke2fs recreated superblocks in all the wrong places (overwriting other data in the process) because they were originally spaced further apart before the filesystem was shrunk, and maybe only the primary superblock is still in the right place.
If everything else fails, you can only try to low-level recover some data, e.g. using photorec.

Try whether youtube-dl -g alone will give you a download URL first. I only tried that with a simple example.

I'm switching my mom's service so she'd need Telemundo, Univision and other messican channels

Do PWM fans automatically adjust to match the temp of the CPU?

Did you test it with 2 different monitors? If so, then yes it would have to be the cable. I can see a small enough damage to not render it completely broken, but just reducing the bandwidth.

i can't compile it from a different architecture?
what's a binary, the .cpp or .o files?
yes, i'm retarded, please be patient

The fan itself does not, no.
Someone needs to tell the fan, like the motherboard. By default it should do that.

Most motherboards let you change what speed to run it at what temperatures of which sensor.

I hope you're not serious, else take a book and read about compilation, google stuff, just learn.
your .cpp are your source code file. The .o are file object your compiler creates for every source file you have. It's just a step before generating your .exe

I want to plug my Macbook 2015 into my monitor, preferably through its thunderbolt 2 ports. What cable should I get and what type of cable (HDMI, Displayport etc.) should I use?

I can run it with the original link directly, but I wonder if its not just downloading the whole video in order and just discarding the rest. I suppose that technically saves me a step, but it kinda defeats the point if I have to stream the contents of a whole two hour video to get a 30 second clip at the end.

It seems like the extended url that -g spits out is constantly changing so putting it in manually doesn't do the trick. Is there no way to pass the url over to ffmpeg automatically on windows?

I have a HDD with a legit copy of windows 10 installed, and i want to use it in a new laptop where a windows 10 that hasn't been activated is installed in a sdd.

I want to have the legit copy in the sdd and have the hdd without any os

How does this work?

>> No.71588892

If you don't need the data from the HDD then just activate the SSD Windows with the key you purchased or log into your account and activate it.
Then wipe the HDD using DBAN or similar tools.

If you want to keep the HDD windows then hook up the HDD over USB, boot up clonezilla and copy the HDD over the SSD.
Then wipe the HDD.

You'll need to reactivate windows like mentioned above if you change hardware.
