= What could be causing my laptop to randomly freeze (cannot accept any inputs, capslock indicator LED doesn't toggle, can't ssh, screen frozen, disk platters/fan still spinning) and how do I anticipate and catch/debug the issue, /g/?

I run on kern 4.20(.16?)
My laptop is dell inspiron 11 (3147)


-- I'm another anon but I believe I have the same thing happening sometimes, I'm listening to something on YT while doing something else, suddenly I hear the music loop the same 1-2 second segment over and over and input stops registering, everythig freezes, few seconds later music is gone as well, I wait 3-5 minutes with everything frozen then everything is back to normal

- looks like it's this https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=236686

= My processor is Pentium N3540 (which IS Baytrail) so this could be it.
But
The thread itself threw me all over the place, bulk-disabling video driver params, power savers, swap space, turbo boost, etc etc.. With each member saying one of those didn't work. What exactly was the issue? Because OP's description fits my case like a shoe.

Interrupt storm maybe?

Keep a visible terminal open somewhere (second monitor, alterable established ssh, serial port terminal if you're a madman) and inside open top/htop/similar and set sampling delay 1 sec or lower. When the lag hits something irq related should be at the top, eating all CPU.
>>
no response in last thread or sqt, so I'll post here too

Which conf file sets the updating frequency of the monitor in a Debian/wayland/KDE desktop?
I tried to play a game via q4wine, but it immediately froze and now when I log in my cursor appears for a second, but then the monitor goes black and says "The current input timing is not supported by the monitor display. Please change your input timing".
I have already tried rebooting, replugging the monitor, and googling led me to delete '~/.local/share/kscreen', but that did nothing. It's also not xorg.conf.

How do I install x and a window manager like mcwm, 2bwm in Arch Linux? I have xorg-server, xorg-xinit and xf86-video(fbdev,vesa,vmware) installed.

Yes. You can install from another usb, use netboot.xyz or start the vmlinuz + initrd.gz using from from a debian-based distros mini.iso

I don't understand this mindset, the idea that many users will switch to radical libre systems instantly through an act of will seems to be a bit deranged, I don't think it's a question of consumer choice at all, in fact it's close to capitalist smoke and mirrors that maintains the idea of "independent consumers" whereas in reality corporate decisions are always large-scale and are conducted by a small group of directors not with the consumer in their mind, whose role is not even secondary, since target audiences are bought and sold every day among companies. Perhaps the aim should be replacing the political system at large, not merely exercising individual acts of will, however heroic they may be?

If we start with the barebone linux, pretty much compiling the kernel and then go from there. Would I be able to use linux this way or because of no compatibility with modern technology, I'd have to download a distro?
I feel like the bad part about how shit any distro/OS is because of how bloat they are and being a passive user, I have no choice but to use them. So I want to go from a passive to an active user, to only use what I develop(or at least know the ins and outs of anything I'm using so I can easily modify it when I want it), but I also feel that this may not be doable anymore thanks to how fast technology has advanced from 00s to now.

How is Ubuntu not bloat?

>>70564899
Can I run it using modern technology or I'd have to use some old computer/notebook?
What I want is something as basic as Unix, but that I can develop stuffs like X11 or anything beyond it and not stay forever as pure Unix and I can update it to use new technologies. I want to use only the programs I develop, for example. But I can't start from 0, because I'm pretty sure developing an OS is going to take a lot of time and no matter how I do it, I'll never be able to make it be better than Unix itself.

you have partition under disk UUID in your fstab and its set to be checked at boot (last number is not 0 in the line) however the partition no longer exists or now has another UUID.

either remove this line from your fstab or fix it to use the correct UUID or an existing device node (like /dev/sdc2)

It's better than encouraging the user to log in as root, but it's not as good as running everything in a sandbox by default.
>What's an example of a security deficiency in a linux distro?
Web browser isn't sandboxed and only updates when the distro updates. Also if you're using X, that's a clusterfuck.

I realize you can work around that and get basically the same results on either platform, but if you're using it out of the box as intended by the developers, enterprise Linux distros generally rely users not being complete retards for security.

Easiest way to tell what cable to buy, place/install the hard drive into the desired slot first, then purchase the cable once you know what length it needs to be + if it needs to be right-angled

make sure your card works with the driver.

Does anybody know how to recover from KDE Partition Manager freezing shifting a partition to the right?

Longer Context:
Was trying to shrink one of my partitions, accidentally clicked on it and dragged it towards the right in the kde gui by before I confirmed the operation. Hit cancel and it froze and crashed mid shift and now the partition is broken. Was trying to figure out what the exact range was by matching sectors with python scripts but there are a bunch of sectors in a row that are just blocks of some character '\xef'. Based on some of the sectors I've read my data is still fine. If it just works by moving the rightmost sectors to their new location the partition should just be segmented at some point.

Does anyone know of any tiling WM where each split is it's own, preferably named, workspace/container?

So you can for example keep a window to the left then to the right of it you have N amount of windows and you switch the entire right side to something else, keeping the left. And the old right side you can later access again, maybe by name.

If nothing like this exist, which WM would be most appropriate to modify to make this happen?

Stumpwm manages frames and windows separately.
In practise it means that you can pull any window in a group (a workspace in other WMs) into any frame in the group. If you had two frames and three windows in a group, you'd have two windows visible and could pull the hidden one to either of the frames.
But at the same time, a frame can't contain additional frames, so you won't be able to pull a split of two windows into a frame.

It's honestly not the most brilliant window manager but it's written in common lisp so if you're familiar with that it's easy to hack live.

The performance of SLI also depends on games. Not just in Linux/BSD, but in general. So it's possible some games will run even worse than before. I remember looking into SLI extensively because there was a Lenovo with SLI 760M or something (I can't even remember) and basically they said that most games need an SLI profile, and even then they can glitch the fuck out, they can have perf issues, etc.

it's not so straightforward.
Vulkan/DX12's multi gpu might be the way forward. I know, it's a new tech, and not many games support it... just saying that it's the "future".

Linux is a kernel.
"Linux" is a trademark owned by Linus Torvalds.
FOSS is not an ecosystem.
>>
>>70576250
Yes, but with spyware removed and privacy added.
>>
Dears,

Linus Torvalds has written in the last days about a unified Linux system. I agree.

The glory of Linux is that today we have a free and opensource system, good software portfolio (of all sort) and a prolific community of contributors.

Nonetheless, we are understimating what the time can do in a project of any kind. We are observing the increasing number of new distros (many of them, last a short life). So, we have all of this fragmented potential.

We have a single kernel to Linux. Why not to increase the layer of integration to allow the users have a custom experience instead of have custom distros.

Actually, except some package managers and some single specific behaviours, there is no huge difference between distros. The Window managers can be used in all of them, so you put the face that you want.

What is missing to the owners of the distros "release the bones" and give the hands together to build the most awesome desktop experience that the world has ever have?

Very basic things work just fine, but there's also many things missing. The list is just too large and i guess nobody actually made one. I guess you're fine with basic rm,mv,cp,etc.

not really. if you don't have a swap partition or file on your OS then either you're basically rebooting your computer or you're not really hibernating. Your swap should be equal to or greater than your RAM if you want to hibernate. Create the file/partition, add to fstab, swapon --all, carry on
>>
>>70581867
Its normal in suspension but if its happening in hybernation then i think you should get the battery checked for power leakage and possibly replace it.
>>
>>70567431
Honestly, just choose something simple like mint or ubuntu. Ive used linux for a while now and still use ubuntu. It just werks

>latency/lag
That hasn't been a thing in VMs unless you have a very weak machine or hardware virtualization disabled
How do you think Qubes OS gets away with running everything in VMs?
What about the lag of rebooting to switch systems, doesn't that bother you?
> OS to run seamlessly
What the fuck does that mean. You know you can run VMs in full screen without any interruptions, the same as just booting into it. If that's what you mean by seamless. And that's only if you really need a different distro, kubuntu has all the same packages arch does and could do everything arch can and vice versa. The same maybe true for kali, although I'm not sure.
>Also helps with workflow, to only have what I need
If you actually knew anything about Linux you'd know you can achieve that on one system even without VMs, just by making a separate user account for work that has unnecessary programs blocked. Also maybe if you did a minimal install you wouldn't have so much bloat in the first place, my machine only has around 20-25 applications installed not including the DE and all its dependencies.
>>
>>70581989
yes you can. open a partition manager like GParted (on a live USB if you don't have any other partitions) and resize your main partition. take 16GB+ from the "end" of your main partition, that will become unallocated space, which you can then format as linux-swap.

but won't it try to install a bunch of drivers that are particular to that machine? what about grub?
It is an external ssd, I would like to boot it from any computer without problems

>if i decompiled the binary it would give me a different source code
Eh. It's almost always going to be different than the original source code. Now if it actually DOES something different than the original then your 'decompiler' is broken.
>>
>>70582047
Most drivers are inside Linux (the kernel). You won't necessarily have the best of the best (like with Nvidia and it's proprietaries) but it'll still work and fall back to mesa drivers or whatever.
As for GRUB, put it on the ssd too. Install it entirely the same way as you would if you were using it as your main install.

GRUB (or any other bootloader) runs off of whichever disk has boot priority. So you don't technically need it IF you put entries in your existing bootloaders on all machines you want to use the SSD on to look for the SSD. So when the BIOS starts up the bootloader from that disk you can point to the install on your portable ssd.
However, if you want to be able to run the portable OS on any machine, even ones that don't have their own bootloaders specifically set up to look for your ssd then you'll want GRUB on the ssd, because then you just have to tell the BIOS to give the ssd boot priority and it'll work.

How do people keep up to date with so many IRC channels with countless messages flooding in?
>>
Do you use any program for whatsapp in linux or just the browser?
>>
>>70582351
They don't. They read them as time and interest allows. Also, they use clients which highlight any line where their name is called out. Also, IRC chats are often archived for later perusal on the web.
>>
>>70582594
I got about 24 channels open at freenode at the moment which is why I was wondering.
>>
>>70582606
Ah ok. I have 4 channels open now but average 1-2 channels. Channels with no one responding to good questions for days are pretty worthless, and channels with too broad an interest and endless spam are worthless too.

>>70582606
My current solution is to just use the emacs matrix client.
Matrix has bridges to IRC, and the emacs client has a buffer that shows messages from all rooms at once (and shows which room the message was from in front of the username)

I feel like the biggest retard.
Can someone help me 'track' whatever the fuck I did on my computer?

I was trying to get the Vim Syntastic plugin to work on my nvim. And the readme says that for Python, Flake8 needs to be installed in my $PATH.

So I use a folder called .scripts and that is exactly what I have on my bash_profile:

export set PATH=$PATH:~/.scripts/


So I did SOMETHING to install flake8 on my computer and I deliberately, copied the 'flake8', 'pycodestyle' and 'pyflakes' executables to my .scripts folder. They're colored green and Syntastic works as expected when opening a Python file.

The thing is, I have no idea where I got those files from. Pic related is the contents of 'flake8' inside my $PATH (.scripts) folder; but I can't find that file anywhere in the flake8 gitlab (https://gitlab.com/pycqa/flake8).

So, as a complete retard. I have no idea whatsoever about what I did. I don't know if I installed Flake8 from the AUR (yay says Flake8 is not instaled) and pip says
Requirement already satisfied: flake8 in ./.local/lib/python3.7/site-packages (3.7.7)


I have no idea what I did but I just want to know.

Hello. I need to know whether the generic Linux-Libre kernel is low-latency out of the box. Because when you try to get the low-latency kernel, it tries to install certain parts that are not compatible with Linux-Libre.

The thing is, I did that process like a week ago.
I remember being very deliberate about it and being satisfied when everything worked out right.

Right now I tried to do something similar and I tried to remember the process I followed with flake8 and Syntastic and for the life of me, I can't remember what the hell I did.

Gnome and tracker. I can find strings inside every kind of file (pdf, doc, mails etc.) from the file manager. Is there another indexer built into the file manager that does the same thing using xfce?

I say keep using your computer. As long as it works. If you ever need to configure that shit again, like in a new computer, you'll just find the way.

it can be called "Linux ecosystem" or "Unix-like os ecosystem", it's not important, it's a very particular thing anyway, and you know exactly what I'm talking about, quit pretending to be semantically idiotic.

How do I make all the toybox/BusyBox commands top level?

For example in coreutils you just go "rm", but with toybox you have to "toybox rm".

Is there a way to make it behave like coreutils's commands?

Yes, Linus made the kernel called Linux and trademarked it.
