What are my options for RTL8821CE.

I keep hearing "headers". What's that.. a list of modules? What's the difference between firmware and a module? Does some hardware require a firmware update in order to interact with the linux kernel?

Ubuntu and Arch both recognize the card in lspci, but I guess the drivers don't work.
Ldiot? The fuck is that?
oh my god
what letter do you think that would be?

Kek how does one fuck up this bad

I got a Ghost S1 case, was planning to build powerfull and compact workstation into it...but thermals suck. So now it’s been standing there for months. I Also have some leftover PC parts laying around: The parts are pretty shitty (ryzen 1300x, 8gb ram, 870 ssd, Fatal1ty AB350) and I‘m missing a psu and a gpu. Should I just throw it together or get parts worthy for a 300$ case? What should I build? Already got a workstation, VR pc, render nodes and a retro pc.

Wat is bes TIM frens?
liquid coolers are a waste of money and worse performance, get a noctua nh-d15
get pci4 m.2 drives if you are spending that kind of money instead of that sata ssd, either the sabrent rocket or gigabyte pci4
dont bother with a hdd unless you absolutely need it, just get ssds they're so cheap and will be much better to you
there are better 3rd party 2080 tis than the founders edition, asus and evga are top picks
Arctic silver 5

since you're getting x570 might as well get an nvme ssd that will take advantage of pcie 4

Almost all Linux users are slaves to repositories meanwhile Windows users can download an .exe file and get the latest version, bleeding edge beta version, or an ancient version of whatever software then want if they have the .exe .

We literally have made habit of frequently changing OS's just to get software we find effective. Solutions have been offered such as distro agnostic pack managers like flatpak and snap, and tools like appimage. However they are primarily ignored in favor of ancient tools like apt-get and .deb.

In Debian/Ubuntu's case apt-get should continue to exist for people who want it and how it saves a lot of space. But developers should be encouraged to take advantage of flatpak and appimage and even tar.gz bundles to prevent software from being chained to particular distros.

spotted the amerifat
But the microwave would be open when not in use? That's seems impractical, but you could do it, just type 9999 and open the door, it would achieve this effect
How are you gonna adjust the power nigga?
It's actually more efficient since you have one fewer steps (initial door opening) when cooking food. If you can't live with having your door open when it's not in use don't use a microwave
if you use anything besides the highest power setting you're using the microwave for the wrong purpose

why can't you open .exe files on linux?
Seconding this question. Something I've always wondered. If they're compiled for the same architecture, why not?
Well peter griffin, it's because microsoft patented and copyrighted .exe files, making them nonfree. Unfortunately, this means GNU operating systems can't run them, because it would be against copyright law.
Maybe when the copyright expires, .exe will join the free (as in freedom) ranks of the GNU family.
who said you can't? I do it all the time

*nix doesn't care what extension you give your file. So you can have an .exe run perfectly so long as it does not depend on WinAPI or windows specific dynamic libraries

Seriously this looks like a literal phone of the future. The design is unlike anything we've ever seen and you can definitely still see it being cool 5 years from now.

Fuck off with that weak shit argument.

nonremovable batteries are indefensible. The entire reason for this design trend is planned obsolescence and forcing consumers to buy a new overpriced phone every 2-3 years when the battery capacity starts to go bad, rather than just being able to easily buy a cheap replacement battery.

I'm genuinely curious. I don't use it because I'm a Firefox chad, but I'd like to know what's supposed to be so bad about it. I've heard you guys called "pozzed", "botnet", and "tranny", but I've never once heard any of you articulate any actual specific reasons it's bad.
I'll cut the rant and just say this: if you know anything about internet's history and you still use chromium/chrome/blink shit you are a retarded mongoloid donkey and should be shot
I want the rant though. Is it related to how Google breaks web standards and is trying to kill adblock? I'm aware of all that but how is Brave any worse than vanilla Chromium?

Because you won't stop shilling your shitty browser here. Same fucking image every time, same vague question (what does /g/ think of brave guys i'm not a shill seriously XD) every time.

I basically live in my semi. What's the best way to handle internet with my laptop? I was thinking about going with Verizon's Unlimited Jetpack plan. (Mobile Hotspot) Then I can use my laptop to connect to the Mifi device. Is this my best bet?

Get T-Mobile they don't throttle until 50+ gigabytes and about $65 a month. Connect to hotspot. Make sure that the TTL on packets sent to your hotspot is 65. T-Mobile looks at TTL of packets to determine if you're using a hotspot and that's easy to trick.
0.5mb/s can be enough for a decent 1080p streaming
that's pretty chill. make sure you work out/exercise at gyms so you stay healthy and dont get dvts
