Welcome to /fglt/ – Friendly GNU/Linux Thread

Before asking for help, please check our list of resources.

If you would like to try out GNU/Linux you can do one of the following:
0) Install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine.
1) Use a live image and to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything.
2) Dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows or macOS.
3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux.

Resources: Please spend at least a minute to check a web search engine with your question.
– Many free software projects have active mailing lists.

I'm trying to run an older version of the Linux kernel for debian, and so far I have tried to load it through the bootloader of the device (OpenSBI), using bootm to load the vmlinuz image, but it fails, asking for a device tree. Is there a way to generate a device tree .dtb file from the existing running debian distro or should I package the older kernel as a .deb package, install it that way and also install grub? I have been trying to avoid installing grub though.

You make DTB from the Linux kernel sources.
make dtbs

or something like that. Then copy the appropriate file over and tell your bootloader to use it.

uImage is the fancy format that nobody seems to be using and zImage is the basic stuff. "Image" image is just an uncompressed image.

>I have taken the vmlinuz image of the kernel I want to run from a running installation, and I don't know if I should repackage that or compile it anew from the sources and package the resulting vmlinux file to use
IIRC it's already compressed ie. what you got is a zImage and U-Boot loads them with "loadz" command.

I see, but OpenSBI only has bootm and booti. I load vmlinuz with load mmc 0:2 (the sd card partition that has the rootfs) $kernel_addr_r vmlinuz-5.5.0, and then bootm/booti $kernel_addr_r. But it gives me a "wrong image format or missing dtb file" error.
>>
>>89942238
personally i just use it for movies and very rarely music. Its stupidly easy to use anyway,there is a GUI button for audio track, gui button for subtitles and even gui button for sound. You can just drag file into it, or literally just open a terminal in your folder type in 3 letters and press tab. You can feed it a text file as a playlist. I just dont see whats so hard about it or what more do you need. Also since its CLI you can automate the shit out of it.
>>
>>89942321
have you checked its status before and after replugging? Is it listed as a source?

>>89942456
it is, for example in pavucontrol. but when I first try it on a new boot, no audio comes through at all (no bar even in pavucontrol) but when I replug it, it just has audio suddenly, and that's the only difference I have noticed

I see, so I'll just use 'make dtbs' in the /opt/device tree or wherever it is in the linux installation to create the .dtb file, and load it alongside the vmlinuz image? I hope that can work, it's an experimental risc-v processor running on FPGA.

I am on win10. Have a blank 500gb ssd I want to setup as an ext4 formated drive with Ubuntu 22.04.1. This is for another computer and will be hosting a plex server.

>>
>>89943625
i dont quite understand what you are trying to do. You are trying to format a 500 ssd with ext4?
>>
>>89943625
if you're talking about the installation usb, fat should work fine
during actual setup you can make the drive itself ext4 formatted
>>
>>89943625
You don't format the SSD with an ISO file, you put the SSD into the target computer and create an installer USB stick with Rufus.
>>
>>89943556
TAR is the worst format possible for archiving, it has all the downsides of tape and offers no advantages compared to all other formats.
If you need a 1 KB file from a 1 TB TAR archive then you'll have to read up to 1 TB of garbage before even confirming that the 1 KB file is indeed there.
Do yourself a favor and use an actually useful archiving format, such as ZIP or 7z.

Maybe Im dumb. I understand linux prefers ext4, so I'm trying to put the ubuntu .iso on this blank 500gb ssd using rufus, but it only allows me to format in ntfs or fat32. Minitool partition wizard allows me to format the ext4, but I don't know how to get the iso on there since windows wont see the drive. My questions I suppose.

low ram usage, open source so you can find any program according to your taste and needs. you can do anything you want with your system, you can literally uninstall bootloader and fuck up your computer, it allows you to do that.

>What should i learn or do to appreciate this OS?

you are dumb(sorry not sorry).

-get usb stick
-use rufus to write iso file to usb stick

-press all the necessary bios buttons to make bios load OS from USB stick(either does it by default or you have to press F8 or something like that)
-proceed with installation process

You don't put the ISO on the SSD. You put the ISO on a USB drive and use it to install on the SSD.

its easier to look at it from another angle:

windows is good for:

-launching fortnite
-launching microsoft office
-launching adobe products
-having perfectly functional nvidia drivers

none of that is because of windows itself tho. All of it is a function of microcock's monopoly on PC operating systems market.

Linux on the other hand is good for literally anything else, given you have necessary amount of skill. 95% of the problems people experience with linux are a result of their skill issue.

So the question of whether you should or should'nt use linux comes down to whether or not you use your computer as an actual computer and not just a glorified videogames launcher.
>>
>>89943975
no, every distro has its own package manager like ubuntu has apt, arch has pacman, debian has dpkg, red hat has rpm etc. etc. after you install your linux distribution which i would go with linux mint if i am complete beginner and want something similar to windows. when i was a beginner i tried manjaro and it was pretty solid but buggy as fuck. i tried ubuntu, arch, manjaro and endeavour. maybe you should look for guides in OP
>>
>>89943975
you can:

-compile from source
-use containerized stuff(appimage,etc)
-use packet managers

packet managers and containerized stuff is the easiest way of installing stuff. Tho packet managers introduce dependency hell(doesnt always bite you in the ass, but sometimes does) and containers have disk overhead and other penalties.

there probably isn't much of a reason to switch to linux if you're not currently seething at your operating system. i had been curious about linux for a while but now i'm guaranteed switching because microshit has cucked me for the last time at this point (the latest issue among many is my new laptop's keyboard keeps switching to canadian french and i can already tell this is going to be a whole debacle so fuck it i'll just learn linux's ecosystem and git gud at an OS that doesn't make me rage daily and has more customization). people say linux offers freedom because linux distros typically don't force you to do retarded shit like create a microsoft account, and they allow you to customize your OS to extremely autistic degrees whereas windows, mac, etc. hide all that stuff from their users with literal laws

>no compression
7z in "only store" mode, meaning no compression. All archiving formats (but TAR) have configurable compression levels and methods, it's worth reading their manual.
>remember trying
The thing with TAR is that it has no index. You must read the archive sequentially up to the file you're interested in. Lucky if the file is close to the start of the TAR, unlucky otherwise. A TAR with lots of files is worse than plague since you can't list the contents without reading the entire archive, this is simply retarded. In fact, it's much worse than raw tape since modern LTO does have a file index.
>>
>>89944269
>containerized/packaged
they are both about convenience. packaged apps are downloaded from repositories and automatically installed in preconfigured directories. they share libraries and as a result of that they are loaded faster and take less space. But that also introduces dependency hell.

Appimages, flatpacks and other memes are the opposite of that. You have a binary and its libraries in one package that you can just copy to another system and it will just work, but they take more space and introduce disk overhead.

by stack i mean just a list of programs that you use. Just try different programs and use the ones that you like the most.

And if you want a list of programs: most of distributions have their own wiki's where you can just search for specific types of the programs and they will tell you if they have them in their repositories. You can also just google them and if they arent in repositories you can download appimages(or whatever) or compile them from the source code.

It seems like a stretch, but maybe the logs are generated by iptables? I mean ultimately ufw just generates its own rule chains in iptables, then the kernel dispatches the packets and presumably signals in some way for logging. I used UFW for a bit but ditched it because its autogenerated iptables rules are hard to audit, so I don't really know what happens to your rules if you stop the service. Take a look at the output of
 iptables -L -v

pretty obvious you got an SSL error here.
Why you got an ssl error? No fucking idea. I dont know if you need to manually update SSL for whatever program you are using(that would be pretty retarded if thats the case) or the server crapped his pants or whatever the fuck. See if you can supply mirror list manually to that thing.

to clarify, i'm like 99% sure i want fedora just because it suits what i want to do for sure software-wise and i don't have an entire evening to run through the arch wiki, i just want to get my feet wet right now with a relatively easy to install OS. i have actually tried puppy linux years ago so i at least know what it's like to have a quick and convenient linux distro but of course puppy linux does not work for anything professional. so if there's nothing massively wrong with fedora that most people don't know about then i will just install it right now

Slowpoke here, can't believe Arch has a braindead installer now.
Before I hop to arch btw, anything I should be wary off? Only used two distros (Ubuntu and Manjaro) in around 6 years now, might be the final hop
>>
>>89947917
Archinstall has very much matured over the two years or so that it's existed but I still personally like using EndeavourOS to automatically install/setup Arch.
>>
>>89948012
Honestly wouldn't mind another Arch derivative given that I used M*njaro for so long.
Any advantages in Endeavour over Arch? It's quite popular in distrowatch.
>>
>>89948099
Unlike Manjaro it's actually pure Arch instead of using it as a base for their own nonsense. It's basically a fork of Antergos after that stopped getting developed years ago.
>>
>>89948137
Almost went Antergos back then but didn't because of that very reason.
I don't think it was as popular as Endeavour is today. So longevity might be guaranteed.

What I'll do is use Arch on the shitlaptop and Endeavour on the desktop. Surely that will result in less headaches.

At least with Antergos it's not like everyone's computers just stopped working. It just over time converted itself into a normal Arch install.
But yeah Endeavour was created by fans of it that wanted it to continue, but they wanted to make it bigger and better. Which personally I think they've done a great job with.

Makes one ask why aren't there distros with binaries for every single CPU* out there.
You know like at the install stage the installer would detect your CPU and set the repositories to something like x86-ivybridge* and then you'd get optimized precompiled stuff directly from the repo without any extra hassle.
*or more like families of CPUs by their capabilities

I'm using Linux Mint and my GPU started coughing out Artifacts.

Is this because I'm just using the open source drivers? Do I need to use AMD's Catalyst 15.9 from 2015 for my old HD 6570?
>>
>>89950708
I use Gentoo, so it's less relevant there because there's not so much binaries involved (except for bootstrapping, where it is kind of important to be able to verify the binaries you're using.)

Reproducible builds are needed if you ever want to be able to verify that the binary you built is the same as the binary you would have gotten from the repository.
>>
>>89950731
True, Gentoo is the other way around this issue. You are making your own builds then.
>>
>>89950741
You still ideally want to be able to verify the binaries used for bootstrapping though. This is difficult in some cases.
If you build go or Java, it's going to pull in some binaries from somewhere because you need those binaries first in order to be able to build the thing for the first time.

>Where do those binaries come from?

Now, I'm not for one moment suggesting the Gentoo developers are malicious (they're not), but the issue is still there to some degree.

>My 6700XT gets sporadic GPU artificats on Windows 11, no such issues on Linux.

>>89951146
assuming you're not trying to bait (if you are, do better), then no, that's now how that works. if you have hardware that's slowly starting to become senile then intermittent failures like that are what you'll see no matter what OS you use it on.

Historically, "artifacts" (ie flashing weird-colored triangles everywhere) means the GPU is dying, and "snow" (a bunch of dots on your screen, sort of like VHS static) means a problem with graphics memory. idk if you're using amdgpu or radeon, if you can try lowering the clocks and or power limit to see if it goes away, flaky hardware is often fine if you run it at a lower speed

I accidentally lost some files by derp deletion and finally sat down to tackling vc of my files.

To do this, I first have to understand how it could be done. I know already that some people do it with a git only with $HOME working dir, but I think I will opt for GNU Stow because I'd like to have two farms: one for 'safe' dotfiles vc'd to a server and another one for confidential stuff like the irssi config that has my irc server password in plain text. I'd like to vc that second pool into backup storage like a removable drive.

How to get picrel data on it? I installed this thing called "Arch Linux" and it uses "6.0.8-arch" kernel.
I asked google about it and it suggested to use "CPU-X", I spent 15 minutes to build dependencies for dependencies and then build this thing only to find out that I'm indeed using 2x8 DDR4 ram sticks at 3200mhz, no more info given. I am a bit disappointed because I got even more info from console than this thing provides at the start of my journey. And it even failed to properly identify my Ryzen R5 CPU.
And how do I cope with all of this dependency-spyware? It feels like Linux gets bloated even faster than Windows.

I too had an awk question

echo "a b c" | awk -F '  '  '{print $NF}'

outputs what I wanted, the last field, c. But then I wanted to understand {print $NF} to optimize the command
How come
echo "a b c" | awk -F '  '  '3'
outputs "a b c" instead of "c" ?
In man awk, NF is supposed to be the fields count...
I don't know how to debug this... bash -x doesn't work here, and I can't put a breakpoint inside a pipe...

...started to build a new machine, decided to swtich to linux because win10 has no future and win11 will never be a option because of obivious reasons i dont need to explain in detail.

i am looking for an OS that ...

-is stable and fast!!
-is easy to use!! ...i dont mind to invest time to set it up, but once its done, least as possible hustle!!
-is not bloated (it will be used as a grafics/dev workstation, blender, krita, gimp, stable diffusion, python/c programming, web browser, some utils, thats it)
-supports wacom tablets - the resposiveness should be tweakable
-supports nvidia gpu's, no hustle here either! should be able to overclock and regulate the fanspeed manually
-must be able to overclock the cpu, on demand, when its needed (no reboot and stuff)
-slim and simplistic but stylish window manager ... usability > fancy gimmicks ..everyting i need one click away!
-hibernate should work without hustle
-has a good deocumentation
-can use it as long as possible without reinstalling it
-updating from one version to the next one should be easy to use and save!!

...thx for any recommondations o7

in my experience with wacom: it's gonna work on every linux out of the box, but if you use multiple monitors be sure you're using Xorg as graphic display, or you'll be fucked with configuring it, also Gnome 4.0 I think has GUI configuration for wacom, if you go for other DE, search for Brodie's video setting it up
I recommend using Debian 11.5 with KDE, it is the most safe option, if you want a less bloated option try xfce if you don't mind the aesthetics (it's fast)
about the nvidia... do some research, it's complicated

On that particular board it looks like they want you to update some Intel proprietary firmwares before the BIOS, so you're probably going to have to make a FreeDOS boot disk to install that.

I did not realize FreeDOS could run an exe file like this. The Asus guide showed Windows being used, so I assumed the exe required Windows. But you are saying it will work on FreeDOS, so I will give it a try. Thanks

I want to put windows 7 + Arch on a laptop.
>windows 7 mostly for games that wine can't do because no vulkan
I'm thinking it like this:
>20GB partition Windows 7
>30GB Arch /
>200GB (rest) exFAT

I want to keep all my games on the 200GB drive, most of them will play under windows,
but I would still play some games on linux and have them stored on the exfat, also general shared files like music,movies etc
this should work right?

I've enjoyed both GNOME and KDE for the most part (even xfce for potato laptops) so I'm wondering what are the mains pros and cons of using one over the other.

Questions about Latte Dock:
1. Is it still actively developed? I can see that the main developer, psifidotos seems to have abandoned the project/Github. There are other contributors though.
2. Are there any worthwhile alternatives?

Looking at the Github I still see some changes being made but I don't know if it's anything significant. The last "release" apparently was 0.10.8 back in January.

Also fuck tranny jannies.

>>89960583
KDE has miles more customization and extension support, QT is generally considered to have more visual consistency between different applications.
Gaming performance differences should be extremely negligible on both. Wayland support is also pretty mature on both GNOME and KDE at this point.
GNOME had some issues with font rendering blurry under some situations a few months ago, not sure if they ever fixed that.
KDE developers aren't total asshat autists like GNOME so there's that too.

as long as they are exactly identical size(or nvme has a little bit more bytes) i guess you can try dd-ing one to another. After all thats how you burn ISO's on linux: you just copy ISO file into thumb drive "file".

Tho id recommend cloning partitions and not entire disk, cause bad things might happen.

You can start with DIY distributions like arch, gentoo and others. After you set them up you can start automating everyday stuff(hint: making a script that launches programs for you and then just closes itself and its terminal emulator window is harder than you'd expect).
>>
>>89956343

you dont need any dumbass github memes to obtain hardware info on linux.

There are generally 2 ways you can do it:

first one is to use default console utilities (like lspci for example) or popular console utilities

second one is to directly cat your hardware info because the nice thing about "everything is a file" philosophy is that you literally only need a text editor in order to change/view system settings.

Here is for example how you can monitor AMD GPU using only watch and cat:

sudo watch -n 0.5 cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/amdgpu_pm_info

google each parameter separately, there is either a cat command or a tool that will help you get your data.

>>89959692
you need to make second exit into a script and detach it from its parent(script that calls second exit) with nohup or something else. Tho beware, with terminal emulators stuff like that doesnt always work as intended and you sometimes have to create second terminal emulator window.

not a single other distro has this problem. If i want to write a linux(or any other) distro i can just do "sudo cat ./iso.iso /dev/sdwhateverthefuck" and it will just copy iso to the thumb drive. Windows however has to be special for some fucking reason.

As someone that recently installed Xubuntu Jammy LTS on his laptop... i would go for Mint. Ubuntu is just carried by inertia at this point.
I picked Ubuntu to not have any compatibility issues with anything since it has become "the default desktop distro".
Well, i had some compatibility issues. Specifically, i've been unable to launch AppImages.

You mean to say that a "universal" application format isn't compatible with the most popular Linux distro, and it somehow is the distros fault?!

Not providing libfuse2 by default is plainly malicious. Fedora, SUSE, and Arch don't do this, and they run newer packages than Ubongo.
