Welcome to /fglt/ - Friendly GNU/Linux Thread.

Users of all levels are welcome to ask questions about GNU/Linux and share their experiences.
Before asking for help, please check our list of resources and FAQ or take a moment to do a web search.

*** Please be civil, notice the "Friendly" in every Friendly GNU/Linux Thread ***

If you would like to try out GNU/Linux, you can do one of the following:
>install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a virtual machine
>boot into a GNU/Linux distribution from a live image without installing anything
>dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS (they suck though)
If you'd like to _use_ GNU/Linux, go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux.

Wintard here. I'm bored out of my skull and I figured I could try linux in a VM. What distro do you recommend to maximize the chance that I stick with Linux? I tried this ages ago and it didn't go so well, but I reckon times have changed.

Also, VirtualBox or VMware?
>>
>>83825263
virtualbox
try manjaro, pop os, ubuntu, gentoo if you are autistic, [spoiler]templeos[/spoiler]
>>
>>83825263
Depends on what you think you'll get tired of: If you want a system that largely doesn't need fiddling at the cost of some programs having outdated versions, Debian is your best bet. If you want a system that's always cutting edge at the cost of troubleshooting problems as a result, Arch is your best bet.

VirtualBox is always reliable, but shouldn't make a difference either way.

I mean, you can always just dual boot, most people tend to keep at least a tiny remnant of Windows just in case they need it. I do even if I haven't booted into it for nearly a year, a decent little HDD is only $20.

I bought a new drive, formatted it in the KDE partition manager and gave it a mount point location in /run/media

This is a backup drive which is only plugged in once a month. Problem is, right now if I turn on my computer with it unplugged, I can't boot up my system because it complains about not being able to find the drive.

I assume it's a simple fix but Google hasn't given me any good results. Any thoughts?

You can also manually configure machines to point to the DNS server but you'll need to do that for each machine which quickly gets tiresome.

>Can I just copy-paste my *username* directory and rename it?
Yes, but first do the useradd command as root, then copy the files, and then do
>chown -R <new_username> /home/<new_username>
You may also want to search the files for any occurrences of the old name and replace with the new one.

Although personally I think you're better off cherry picking individual files and directories to copy over, rather than blindly copying the whole thing.
It shouldn't cause any real issues, but some stuff is just pointless to copy like ~/.cache
The majority of everything you need is probably in ~/.config and ~/.local/share
>>
How are software dependency updates handled in Docker images?
Let's say I have a jellyfin/jellyfin image. It builds on top of a Debian image, apt list --installed returns 160 packages. Running apt update inside it gives me 3 packages that could be upgraded: base-files, debconf, tzdata. These are not libraries, so maybe they're not important enough to warrant a container image rebuild, but would such rebuild be triggered if some mesa-va-drivers or whatever got updated in Debian repos? If not, wouldn't that be a possible security issue?
I mean, there's much talk that containers (Docker, Podman style, not talking about LXC and such) try to decouple the actual application from underlying host OS. That's great, but then I see images which introduce pretty much their own OS inside. Wouldn't static linking and adding just the delivered software binary to the container image make more sense?

use feh, and symlink ~/Desktop/Background.txt to ~/.fehbg? You can use
feh --bg(-center,-fill,-tile,etcetc) -i /path/to/picture
to generate the file. If you want the contents background.txt to be just the path then it's more complicated. But you can use scripts to interface with feh, so I doubt it's too hard to setup
>>
>>83829350
Sure, go for it.

If you want to play it ultra safe and have $30, no harm in getting another SSD. If you want to use what you've already got, you need to read up how to shrink down the Windows partition you have from within Windows itself, otherwise there's a risk of data loss, then you need to take care when installing to make sure you don't accidentally install Linux over your Windows partition.

>>
>>83831555
True freedom to choose always results in every use case being catered to, each distro was made to be someone's specific ideal.

More practically though, there's "families" of distros, where the parent has a more general use case and the children are just variations.

For example, Debian is designed around the idea of being the most stable system possible, at the cost of having older packages which have undergone thorough testing. Ubuntu, Mint, Pop_Os are all based on Debian, but with the aim of being more accessible or more standardized or less cluttered respectively.

But then there's something like Arch, which is almost the opposite concept, cutting edge systems, guaranteed to have the latest software, with the trade-off that it's more unstable as a result. Endeavour, Manjaro, Artix are all based on Arch, but with the aims of being easier to setup, more preconfigured or having alternate init scripts respectively.

Generally, you're best off looking only at the most common "parent" type distros, and only if you like their concept, consider looking at the minor spinoffs.

>>83832026
Very interesting, thanks. There's a thing I still don't get though: all this talk about stability vs cutting edge. My experience is made only of things that (mostly) just work, be it Windows, iOS, etc. where you turn them on, install whatever bullshit you want and then end up using only a couple of programs, like the holy trinity of Chrome, Steam (meant as a representation of all gaming on pc), and VLC. I guess that's the stability game, probably what a normie like all of us uncultured swine needs, but what cutting edge even means? What's being added, why is it needed, in what way is it going to break, what "break" even means? Random crashes? Failure to boot? The audio rickrolling you every third monday of the month?

A few months ago someone was after an alarm type sound for a trigger.
Some kind wizard anon posted a one line (?) script which piped something to the sound and by changing the top and bottom frequency and the rate at which they cycled, you could get a very alarm style sound generated by that simple bash command.

>>
>>83832362
Take with a grain of salt as I'm not an expert.
>1. What's the operational difference between Snaps and traditional packages/managers?
Snaps are all-in-one install. They bundle all the dependencies required by the program so they just werk. The downside is they're slow to open, take up more hard drive space and the snaps store is canonical proprietary garbage.
Traditional package managers install the dependencies for the main program as if they were any other package on your system and they get shared by all programs that require it. Downside is you can't really run old versions of software and can lead to dependency hell.
Flatpaks are the superior and open version of Snaps, but Ubuntu wants to push their own stuff as it'll attract a higher price when Microsoft buys Canonical.

>2. How do you organize applications if there is more than one source and method of installation?
Use the package manager.
>>
>>83832760
Did you actually try the command and it worked? How long ago was that?
I ask because that sounds like how audio used to work on GNU/Linux with OSS. You could pipe raw data to /dev/dsp I think, but not anymore.
With alsa/pulseaudio/pipewire the device is /dev/snd. You could try pipeing shit into it but I don't know if it'll work.

I haven't used Linux in at least 7 years, and got that itch to have it back on my system, installed Manjaro, everything worked perfectly without a hitch.
Then a game that I was expecting for a long time was released on the Epic Game Store (Neo TWEWY), then I thought, welp, back to windows, since I have no idea on how to run pirated games on linux.
But then I had the retarded idea of simply double clicking the game's .exe. To my surprise, it automagically just worked!

I like both equally honestly especially with how they both have easy one click installs from their sites for programs, but I think Opensuse just narrowly wins for me since it's backed by a long existing company so it won't just randomly be unsupported one day.

I haven't used either yet on real metal and I have a Nvidia GPU, would Opensuse still be ok?

if i try to startx while gdm3 is on, a grey screen shows up.

Basically it just means you get updates when the devs push them out. Did the devs break the application on AMD cpus? Then you'll need to wait for them to release a fix. The breakage depends on the application, theoretically GRUB could push an update that fucks up the conf file it uses, making the OS not boot. Usually stuff doesn't get broken that badly. Overall, bugs are to be expected, but it's not like early access indie game levels of bugs, should still work fine for the most part.

How is using different drives handled on Linux? Correct me if I'm wrong, but to my understanding Linux works under one file tree, right? I'm very used to the separated nature of how Windows does it and it serves a purpose for me. I have an SSD which I install the OS and small but useful software to just so they start up fast and an HDD which is for e.g. low demand huge files, archiving purposes and games and such.

TL;DR: On Linux, how do I make a clear separation of which drive I want to install things on while clearly stating that the drive is part of the system (if needed or possible)?

TW is fine on nvidia, afaik they even have an official repo for openPEPE with their absolutely proprietary driver.

Be aware tho that bigger kernel upgrades (e.g. 5.14 -> 5.15) can and will break your shit because novideo is too lazy to fix their driver in time.
Check the mailing list for nvidiots complaining after a kernel upgrade. If they do, just lock your kernel package for the time being (zypper al kernel-default) and you'll be fine.

There's nothing stopping AppImage authors from making fully static images. They just have the freedom to be idiots. There's no true stupidity baked into the format like snap's dependence on Ubuntu AppArmor rules or closed source back-end.

OP is probably having some kind of unrelated Arch fuckup. The odds of two libraries breaking at once like that are pretty remote unless they haven't updated in a year.

I have my system setup similar to what I think you want, e.g. OS is installed to SSD, with HDDs for misc files. All you need to do is mount HDD1 to a folder of your choice.

>>
>>83840688
Even if someone takes their care to do it portably (e.g everything is static), the AppImage still depends on the hosts libfuse libraries and if they break or change (e.g ABI break) then your AppImages all stop working. To AppImages credit, you can extract them like an archive and run the executable that way but this doesn't always work and compromises the "click-and-run simplicity" that was promised.
>>
>>83840569
Yes as long as you know they're not going to conflict over external resources. Like, you want to have basic idea of where your patched version is going to be installed and what it's going to do when you run it or isolate it with a container or VM.
>>
>>83840718
>AppImage still depends on the hosts libfuse libraries and if they break or change (e.g ABI break) then your AppImages all stop working
Will literally never happen. libfuse would be forked and abandoned fast as you can blink. Way too many companies sunk cost in AppImage products for any serious distro to adopt something like that.

It's a realistic concern because we don't all use enterprise distros anon. Some distros actually give a damn about security and get rid of all of the old unmaintained cruft.

i have transmission-daemon installed, I'll try one of those clients i guess

if you cared about security, you wouldn't be running unmaintained software that relied on unmaintained libraries in the first place

Scratch that, it was a me problem. Trying to run the 32 vs the 64 version. Yuzu is still borked but they are aware of the issue.
>>
>>83841032
Open up Yast and spend 5 minutes going through the settings, you can change that and a ton of other stuff easily.

That neofetch icon is the actual Tumbleweed logo, that's why it returns that. Don't bother with desktop thread autism, no one will care about yours if you don't have a riced out WM with pastel coloring and an anime girl wallpaper.
>>
>>83841032
in .config/neofetch (read the man if there's nothing there) change "auto" to "openSUSE'. As for KDE, right click the application launcher>Configure Application Launcher. You'll probably want an svg of the suse logo, I'm sure it's around on the internet somewhere

The problem is when this neat project you see and want to try out wants you to meson build X while ninja building Y, with A,B,C,D,E,F build dependencies...

Im trying to get xmrig to run using openCL on this old amd gpu I have just for kicks and giggles and some experience, however when I try to run the program with openCL it always throws back this "Failed to load openCL runtime" error. I know that the GPU is detected and being used and that it has a usable openCL profile, I think the problem is xmrig just doesnt know where to find it. Im thinking the issue is in the config file with the "loader" field. From what I gather, that should be filled out with the path to the icd or whatever its called, but I dont know where it is located.

Any ideas on what should be filled out there?

pic related, most of the relevant info is there.

>https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Unreal_Engine_4#Installing_from_the_AUR
>The package is ~70 GiB installed (after compiling shaders on first launch) and needs ~120 GiB to build with an output ABS package of ~9 GiB when compressed. This AUR package downloads ~10 GiB of source files plus ~5 GiB of dependencies.
What do the numbers mean, and where do they go? The reason I'm asking is a while back I installed linux with / and /home in separate partitions. My justification was I could make my configs and documents persist when distrohopping instead of manually setting up and transferring files again and again.
My / is 30-50 gb I think and my /home is ~200+ gb, I just want to move my win10 setup over plz help

Tell me anons, is this kind of thing in picrelated normal? I've got an i5-3470, 1050ti and 16GB DDR3. I'm only running about ~120 tabs but even then my computer is slow as shit whereas other distros and even windows ran fine.

What part are you having trouble with? Do you have an OpenVPN provider that you need to open the port for you?

i don't know what those are. Does Ableton, pro-tools work on it? I like FL too but I know it doesn't work natively.

RedHat has faster turnaround on security fixes for their 'cruft' than your spastic freetard nonsense, but thanks for playing.

Eternal question with single board computers. Compile your own kernel and bootloader - if you can - and then start picking a distro you can "bootstrap"
>>
>>83842574
And how can I start my computer without touching anything just directly to my default arch installation?

I'm trying right now on VM and even when i only have arch installed it asks me. In the future I'm not going to have dual boot, it's going to ask me too?
>>
>>83842498
Skim it maybe. A lot of them are obsolete or not applicable to every system.
>>
>>83842645
It should boot to the default entry after a few seconds. You can set the timeout to 0 and it'll boot automatically unless you hold shift. grub is a good idea on distros that change kernel versions in regular updates because you're 100% going to get a bad kernel eventually.

There is a problem with an ebuild I'm trying to emerge
I modified the .ebuild to fix it but it doesn't seem to work. The problem is a path it is trying to use that's wrong. I corrected the path in the .ebuild file but when I emerge it, it keeps using the wrong path.
I fixed it in both
/var/db/pkg
and
/var/tmp/portage

But after I try to emerge it (and it fails), if I reopen the
/var/tmp/portage
ebuild, it is back to the old version (with the wrong path).
How can I fix this? How do I make it so the emerge command uses the correct path/ebuild file?

I just noticed that MPV shows these white triangles on the horizontal scroll bar thingy, to show sections of the video. Is there a way to skip between them? Some kind of shortcut to move between them. I think it would be handy for skipping anime OPs...

1. sudo nano ~/.config/neofetch/config.conf
2. Search for asci.
3. Change "auto" to "openSUSE"
4. Control + X to exit and save.

>>83841512
not messing with any root-owned files and folders results in a more portable configuration that's easier to transfer and apply between different systems.

Does anyone with dual monitors have interpolation working on mpv? Primary is 120hz and to the left is 60hz. Videos play on the 60hz but seem to target the primary for output. Changing the synced display in nvidia-settings has no effect on it. Changing both to 60hz works but what's the point of that? Over-riding the display fps doesn't change the output either.

why this works

You need to either connect to a rsync daemon on the remote host, or mount the remote directory with sshfs and copy as is they were local files.
