I'm looking into PCI passthrough.
How exactly does allocation work?
Say I have an 8 core processor. Do I spit it down the cores down the middle, and allocate 4 cores to the host and 4 to the VM? Or can I allocate 8 cores to the host, and the VM and let them share?
Same question about memory.

It's not an init system issue. You're probably missing some X libraries by default in artix that manjaro includes by default

Okay I have a question that may sound silly.
I've never heard of PopOS before, but apparently it's sort of taking off in popularity. From what I can see, it appears to be a gnome flavored version of Mint made for prebuilts with a focus on customization. Am I right on that? Is there something that should compel me to at least download the Live CD and try it out?

whatever is less than 20 but more than 10, make sure it has fuses in the current measuring mode. add a couple of good leads and a pair of clamps, should be 5 extra. Also a box of 10A and 0.5A fuses or whatever yours are rated, not even interlock will save you from forgetting your leads are in the A-hole.
don't fall for overpriced garbage if this is your first multimeter, even a $2.99 is good enough for a beginner and autoranging is a scam anyway.

>>82657970
That analogy doesn't make sense.

Email is inherently insecure from a privacy perspective. Even if you do everything correct on your end, you are still reliant on the other party taking those same precautions. There's also no protection for metadata (headers, to/from, etc) from which a picture of your activity can be created.

The only emails I receive are banking notifications, store purchases, password resets, and the odd spam.

For banking notifications and store purchases, the FBI can already get that via a search warrant (same as they would need for my email).

For password resets, that just tells them which sites I visit. They would get a warrant from my DNS provider or ISP and get the same info.

For spam, it doesn't really matter.

Mate, I could buy a Thinkpad/Elitebook for a fraction of the price, while being at least 5X more useful. Into the landfill this goes...

You do know that there are other applications open besides a web browser, right? How would this shit be useful. LibreOffice alone can rake up to 500MB, then you factor in your browser, desktop environment,ect. Those specs are acceptable for a phone, because you barely do anything productive on a phone.

So yeah...into the landfill it goes

When you turn off subpixel rendering and then turn on shit DPI scaling, it certainly is. It looks objectively great if you use the defaults, or on the occasional system where it doesn't look good with the defaults, it looks good after you adjust it to match your screen.

That just shows that the application is not high DPI aware. Windows font rendering still better than GNU/Linux.

So they wanted to find out your IP address and OS and then not even store that info? Big fucking deal? You unavoidably provide your IP address to every website you ever visit, including wherever you download your favorite FOSS projects from, and many such websites also automatically detect your OS to send you directly to the right download page, which is exactly what Audacity wanted to use it for as well. So what's the problem?

We know what audacity sends, it says so in the source code. It sends your IP and OS. Websites can log more than just your IP. OS is a pretty common extra. Audacity literally sends less information their website could be logging than your browser would.

99% of people don't build from the source code, they install packages from their OS' package manager

You're sending incomparably much more identifiable information, at much higher volume and consistency, to 4channel.org, than audacity's update check, which would have been optional by the way, would have asked for.
