My x230 randomly shuts down, has anybody else seen this problem? It's almost certainly a hardware issue, as it doesn't go through the OS shutdown process, and simply abruptly turns off, as if the power was cut.

I'm also certain that it hasn't anything to do with the battery, as this has also happened whilst it was plugged in to the wall. I've seen some chatter about bad thermal paste application out the factory causing the CPU to reach an obscene temperature and force a shutdown.

Anyone have any ideas?

I'm an adult edition.

Possibly a dumb question but I am sort of a Linux brainlet. I upgraded my kernel on my Arch distro using pacman to 5.0.2 and now whenever I start it up it says it can't start kernel modules. After a 1:30 start job it fails. I can't connect to the internet (even through Ethernet), x server fails to start, etc etc. What do? Luckily I have a backup running the 4.19 LTS but still.

You need to recompile the modules for the new kernel.

Lesson learned my dude, I don't know what I was thinking installing a distro made by KDE devs. I thought it'd be stable because I figured it would be Ubuntu + KDE apps. But they use their own versions of a bunch of stuff and here we are

Anyways, I think I found the issue. SDDM is compiled against a specific version of Qt5. Neon updates to a more recent version of Qt5 which SDDM is no longer compatible with (SDDM must be recompiled)

So now I'm trying to recompile SDDM against whatever version of Qt they installed. If I get that far my concern is:

How do I install it cleanly? If I do the whole
cmake ..
make
sudo make install

Isn't it just going to barf the files all over /usr/wherever? How do I uninstall it later when they fix the package?

Never used acme, but if it allows you to add bash commands then you could consider using gksudo instead of just sudo, which will pop up a graphical password input box before running the command.

I want to get into to building electronics. What are the most essential components I need to get before I get started? I already own a breadboard, arduino, raspberry pi, some wires, LEDs, and a few 220 resistors.

Also what are some useful beginners resources or tutorials?

Get a multimeter, a 3.3/5/12V power supply, and a proper solder station (a basic one is enough, but make sure it's high quality)

Don't get stuck with Arduino, the microcontroller world is much bigger than that. Also, buy some modules like bluetooth, alphanumeric screen, NFC or whatever gets your attention, otherwise you'll get bored really fast with those LEDs.

If you don't keep a soldering station on your desk ready to go then you're not serious about electronics. Breadboard was made for parents to give to their kids so they don't burn themselves.

>It wont be $20/m including games and hardware.
So what is the 20$/m for? I assume you'd need to buy the hardware streaming google thingy first yes (for 40-60$) then it will have a subscription with unlimited games for whatever price
the publishers will get a % of earnings
It WILL not have multiple subscriptions, that makes no sense
And it WILL NOT have a subscription just for the service, that makes no sense either

Anyways even if it's 30-40$ (and works) it's still convenient vs costly cash investment

Plus google will make money off ads and data too

Moreover they will likely operata at massive loss for the first 1-2-3y and then hike prices afterwards when everyone's hooked i assume

This should have been the first thing to ask yourself when you chose make. Although I seriously doubt your project is that complex that you couldn't do it without bypassing the core of make.

>This should have been the first thing to ask yourself when you chose make

Well we did, what we came up with is a lot of variables for directories building one on top of the other.

>That's nice I guess, how does that big ass buildfiles/obj/tgt.o differ from any other .o being built?

Well binaries go to buildobjs/bin, objects to buildobjs/obj, deps to buildobjs/deps, vendored code to buildobj/lib, and the content of those directories also katch the contents of their source files, so if you have src/a/b/c/d.c you end up with buildobjs/obj/a/b/c/d.o, buildobjs/deps/a/b/c/d.d, and so on without any need to hardcode this functionality in the makefile, it autodiscovers everything and maps it all to the correct build tree.

>I'm still completely sure you've built up a big pile of garbage.

What is your career path?
I was working as a C software dev for 2 years after graduating from the uni and it was terrible.
People were intelligent but borderline mentally ill.
I switched to a small travel agency that needed tech support + developer for their in-house booking system I made from scratch. Also made them the website and other shit.
I earn a really nice salary even though sometimes I would like to work on a bigger project.
I am really happy here and would never go back to being a code monkey in a software dev company.
