Is it possible to have an encrypted filesystem mounted by a logged user running syncthing o rsync on it, but at the same time have it completely unaccesible from the root user? Maybe if said filesystem is mounted on a vm or some other kind of container?

For reasons unknown, my (outdated) Firefox 56 x86 suddenly decided that I can't keep my unsigned addons anymore. I had a similar issue on more modern versions on other devices and just solved it by setting xpinstall.signatures.required to false, but now for some reason it just up and disabled all my other add ons. What can I do to get them work again?



moz just pozzed all the addons, a googhell search might help with this. might need a new browser.

Very nice, but once the tomb is opened and working as a regular folder, root would have access to it. I need it to be accesible only by the user who decrypted it, no one else ever.

Then open it as root.

Hello, I've switched from firefox to waterfox and have preformed the mitigation guide as stated on the spyware watchdog. I have also made additional changes mentioned on the privacytoolsio site. Are there any other changes in I can make to improve security?



If there are no obvious solutions I might switch to palemoon. Although I have some reservations about it, mainly due to poor addon support and crashes.


There was a thread here some weeks ago warning about how supposedly Sandisk USB sticks and memory cards have some integrated botnet and should be avoided. For some reason the thread was deleted soon after it was posted so not much was said there. Anyone knows what's up with that?

Eclipse Moon 1.04



usb stick?

one thing about tomb files is, you can rename them, and they become completely different files, until you AGAIN, rename them, and they become their tomb file again. Which is an extra layer of protection.



for exp:

rename secret.tomb.key to "file", and it will become an apple file, rename it back to secret.tomb.key, and it will be able to decrypt again.



Thank you



they also have a dark theme for the browser, which is nice.

Dark Moon 2.3.1



and of course, you can change the search plugins too


I recommend startpage, it also has a dark theme in the settings


What is the problem with systemd? is it security or just stability?



oh, and, you have to tell the setting not to filter search results, otherwise you can't find 8chan unless you bookmark it.




sudo apt-get install youtube-dl



searx also has a dark theme, and supposedly it's safer?

you can try that too.



Well I might as well put everyone else on a vm and keep the host's root user account credentials to myself. I wonder when, if ever, my coworkers will know they are on a vm.



Maybe I should explain my situation better: At my office there is a server we use for running test code on some network devices. Since it's running 24/7 I thought about bringing in an external hard drive and use it to sync (with syncthing) my personal files with what I have at home. That way I would have all my stuff backed up somwhere else. The problem is that while I can have the external hard drive encrypted with Luks, it needs to be decrypted and mounted for rsync to work. At that point any of my coworkers with sudo powers could take a look at my dank memes and other shamefull material.

Maybe it's not possible unless I put everyone on a vm.




Why do this at all? Why not just save the files on your phone and plug in a USB to your machine, then simply unplug? Do you absolutely need it to be in a stable location? Why not simply carry the files with you and use a phone app for file encryption.



oh, and Adblock Latitude 5.0.1

I'm not >>1061914 but would you recommend void Linux? I have the Iso downloaded.



Windows is not important unless it impacts on performance.

>Old or new

A handful of recent games but mostly early 2010's and gamecube emulation.

Should I get a beginner's OS like Linux Mint?



Xubuntu, Kubuntu, Ubuntu budgie, Mint Xfce, Mint Cinnamon, LMDE. Don't install 3rd party shit when you're asked, use a minimal install option if you have the option to do so.

Why are you asking about windows if you want as little spyware as possible? Anything after w2000/XP is backdoored.

If you want to use an activator use this >>1058803. But afaik w10 works fine even if not activated.


>would you recommend void Linux?

If you have to ask then no. Don't use it.



I suppose what I want in an os is what everyone wants: less bloat than Windows, no spyware, fast and secure.


What's the easiest way to trigger a command on multiple PCs over a network?

I've got 16 VR pcs at the arcade I work at and I want a way to call a force shutdown on all of them at once. Right now I have to remote into them individually and shut them down which is a super big pain in my fucking balls.

I know for a fact I can either send a command directly over a network (eg: "shutdown -s -f -t 00") or at the very least call a file (eg: a shutdown batch file stored on the computer), but I'm at a loss for how exactly to do it.

So what's the easiest way? The inefficiency is killing me.

OpenBSD 65. Playing video as a normal user causes "i915 access denied" errors, and I regularly get audio/video stutters. Playing as root seems to eliminate this problem. I am assuming this has something to do with access to video acceleration for non-wheel users?

Is there something special I need to do in order to enable access to the video card?



>whats the current best free antivirus antimalware auto protect for windows 7?

Clamwin and clamav are free (as in freedom), but they're just virus scanners.

But for "I'm stupid, prevent me from installing untrusted software" look here >>1062073

AV software is a malware itself, because it is mainly nonfree software.

And why would you need an antivirus, windows is a malware anyway, better install GNU/Linux.

> As of late 2016, Windows updates are combined into inseparable batches. This means that you cannot remove bullshit telemetry "updates" reliably. The only options are to run Windows with known vulnerabilities, run Windows with microsoft spyware, or to not run Windows at all.

Does Ancile script still effectively disable telemetry with a fresh new install of fully-updated Windows 7? Installgentoo appears to contradict itself in that regard.



It's very likely that nobody knows. Microsoft's telemetry is ever-changing and largely undocumented. If this is a problem, stop using Windows.




I should have clarified; i am just looking for "the best" virus scanner. something to update, run, and get an infected machine clean. i dont care about auto protect or "phishing protection" or any of that. i just want it to scan.

currently when i come across an infected machine i run mutliple anti viruses. i usually start with eset's online scanner, followed by malwarebytes, followed by kaspersky, then super anti spyware.

i know most of these are very dated and were once good in their prime but are kind of a joke now, but i havnt kept up on the best.

i'll give clamwin and clamav a try but would welcome other suggestions or if you would like to elaborate on why you chose these.



After a small amount of research (correct me if i'm wrong) but tell me if i have this right.

Clamwin is the core and both clamav and clamsentinel are additional components that work alongside clamwin and add functionality.

clamwin is all you need to do a manual scan

clamsentinel adds an autoscan feature that just scans atuomatically instead of clamwin's manual function

and clamav adds autoprotect features like hijack protections and "safe" browsing and whatnot.

for maximum functionality i'd install all 3.

if i want just to run a manual scan just install clamwin.

and if i want to secure a PC from getting all fucked up by a shitty user, i'd install clamav and clamsentinel?

for my purposes right now i only need clamwin, but the other 2 are if i want more active protection. do i have that right?

newfag here. I've heard about others bitching about how firefox has gone to shit lately; what browsers do you all use/recommend? what's "safe"?



You won't get a consinse answer, because as far as I know there isn't any. All browsers have their pros and cons and there isn't one which is perfect. You can either stick to Firefox or prehaps use a fork like waterfox or palemoon. However these aren't perfect and you will encounter problems. My suggestion would be to experiment, as you've used Firefox I recommend the two forks above



Oh yes and regarding safety, most software isn't fully secure, so I would recommend reading the mitigation guides on spyware.neocities.org as a starting point



im sure someone will yell at me, but any browser can be safe if you use the right extensions, assuming whatever browser HAS the extensions.

i like palemoon because i like the security options specifically available for it.. with it i use ublock, clean links, decentraleyes, eclipsed moon, encypted web (https anywhere fork), noscript (mostly disabled, but keeps some security features, then i use it "as needed"

though im currently having an issue and considering moving to another browser because firefox recently made it so palemoon cant use their site to download old versions of extensions anymore and XPI files are hard to come by. however the palemoon team usually links something that works similarly... for example you cant get "noscript" anymore, but there are 3-4 similar programs you can install instead... same thing with https anywhere.



>1) Is there any linux/windows tool to extract files from an incomplete image?

Don't know but I think there should be. As long as the header is intact or if the filesystem's file table is also intact

>2) I noticed that I can still see the filenames while hex-editing, never done it my life but I'd really like to have a go at it, so in general, where's a good place to start learning how to poke around in files and otherwise are there ways to recover data i.e. a .doc file from an image using information retrieved by hex editing?

Those file names are meaningless and you might as well just look at the $MFT file which has all the file names and address but no one knows how to read that. It's better to use a tool that does that.

>3) What are the best price:size ratios on external hard disks, with the best brands and all that jazz?

go with wd/toshiba/hitachi

>4) I was tempted to store nonsensitive information on the cloud just for safekeeping, but I've found that Mega has horrendous upload speeds and a lot of limitations when trying to upload multiple files. Should I even bother with cloud storing in general and if yes what are some good services that allow me to do so, possibly for free but I don't mind to pay a little if it's actually secure?

cloud is free so why not? as long as you keep it safe and not susceptible to takedowns (copyrights)

it's a bit hassle though so you might as well just buy a fresh disk to duplicate files.

Not a solution, but try booting into a live environment to see if it is your system. You could also try downgrading kernel.


I have an old Samsung with a broken (black) screen, but I noticed today that it boots and can be detected by my computer. It doesn't have USB debugging enabled however, so I can't really do anything with it. I tried doing a factory reset (blind) by clicking the same number of clicks they did in the YouTube video tutorials, and it worked, but USB debugging was still disabled by default.

Is there a way to enable USB debugging somehow? It's needed for anything ADB/FastBoot/SDK as far as I can see. I'd like to play around as much as possible with it (rooting it, installing custom rom) and possibly connect an external screen to it but I don't see a way to do it without the USB debugging.

Do any of you also have an idea of how to use data recovery software on phones, from your machine? None of the things I've used can see the phone as its own partition, even though it's mounted. Should I dd a mirror image of it, and then do data recovery on that?

Any ideas?

I figured out the issue.

For some reason even though "echo $SSH_AUTH_SOCK" returns the location of the agent socket which is valid, when I run "ssh user@host", it's as though the variable isn't there. I have to use the command "env SSH_AUTH_SOCK=$SSH_AUTH_SOCK ssh user@host" to ssh.

I made a shell alias for that.

If any of you have the same problem now you know what to do.

Is there literally no pozzed browser alternative? Someone told me Pale Moon has blocked access to AdNauseum and told me to get Brave instead. But Brave's site is totally mainstream shady, and their offices are in San Francisco and London. Waterfox doesn't update, too, so I can't go back to that. I don't know anything about Vivaldi. What can I do?



Kinda have to ask, what is pozzed to you? Because if it is "shit people work on this browser" or alternatively "gets monetized to hell and back" then yeah you are probably out of luck.

If it's okay that webshit, as browsers are attract some "people" you still have icecat and qutebrowser offering either a firefox spin or a chromium spin respectively both have worked out alright for me.

There is also ungoogled chromium if you want their plugin system without google.




Please stop using that word. Botnet is a more appropriate term.

There's Icecat that works just great on GNU/linux.

As for windows, Icecat is not supported anymore. But someone compiled an unofficial version of it https://github.com/muslayev/icecat-win64/releases

I tried it it works normally but you need to install a visual studio dll dependency.


But I'm suspicious about a random exe existing on github, especially when there's no detail on how to reproduce his work.

I would like to know if someone could please help me understanding how to compile icecat on GNU/linux and also windows.

I've compiled small software on Debian based distributions, I even installed a gentoo once, but never went far.

Which is, in fact, retarded, as all cell phones, that function as cell phones, emit some kind of electromagnetic radiation. In fact, even if you disable Bluetooth, WiFi, and cellular data on the device, they still emit radiation if you can see what's on the screen, because visible (to humans) light is electromagnetic radiation.

Sorry, but you're certifiably retarded. The best thing you could do for the human species is suicide before you reproduce.

Please kill yourself.



To follow up on what this guy said, the only danger with non ionizing radiation is heat and cellphone are a few watts max. Google radio duty cycle to get more information.

I need to set up SSH at several remote locations. I have a cell modem for internet because the locations are very remote and it would be impractical to set up wifi "normally" at all of them. The problem is, port forwarding seems to not function. I think I set it up correctly on the router. Linked a static LAN IP to my device and set it up to forward incoming traffic on port 22 to that device. SSH functions over LAN, so it should be running.

I suspect my carrier blocks inbound traffic, though no one could tell me when I called them because they're all a bunch of monkeys who don't know anything. Sent them a mail and they haven't gotten back to me yet. If that IS the case and there's nothing I can do about it, I need options on that. I was thinking of using ngrok to tunnel through, though I'm not sure that's the best. Anyone have any experience with ngrok? Is it good? Are there better alternatives to what I'm trying to do? Smarter solutions?



Why not change the ssh port to one that works? Leaving the default 22 will have chink bots knocking at your door 24/7



Should probably change port, yeah, but I'm not sure any ports work. I tried setting it in the 15k range and it still didn't work. Guess I'll have to wait to hear back from my provider


Is it possible for me to put two different OS's on the same physical machine on two different VLANs? I want to put my dual-boot gaming Windows disk on a totally separate VLAN from my normal working Linux disk.



I'd recommend Trisquel, it's ubuntu based and a lot easier than ubuntu and has better security per default, it uses the a very lightweight mate desktop that makes it very comfy.


Only inconvenience is that hardware manufacturers are uncooperative, so you can't use amd gpu based systems and intel wifi, there more but these two represents the two major hardware incompatibility.

Otherwise I'd recommend ubuntu Mate (but it's a bit buggy, comfy otherwise) or kubuntu.




>Linux (GNU/Linux Mint) it is easy as fuck for newfags

Please stop shilling mint it's a horrible distribution.

On a ladder of lesser evil k/ubuntu mate distros are the lesser evil, but mint isn't a far away border from MSwindows.


> but as a former Windows user you want to get a beginner distro


>or Mint



I have my Windows OS in my SSD drive and it has all the defult folders like pictures, users, blah blah blah, but my Hard Drive had nothing. How do I make a exact copy of all those folders for that drive?



Maybe you can have your router distinguish between your windows and linux install based on hostname.


Copy them? You will have to elaborate on your problem



Thanks for showing off your power level. Woah! double strike with the edge! tRY READING MY entire question, including what I typed between brackets.

>or what can limit the amount dramatically

implying I already know they emit rads. Nothing disingenuous here.Try to think before you type, becasuse you sound like a massive cunt and autist. Good day sir.



I use an amd gpu so I guess that won't work for me. Which would you suggest, mate or kubuntu? What about xubuntu?


Reading SICP right now. I'm looking at the following code to calculate factorials:

(define (factorial n)
(define (iter count product)
(if (> count n)
(iter (+ count 1) (* product count))))
(iter 1 1))

Everything works fine. But I'm trying to rewrite the "iter" procedure using "let" and "lambda" statements. I can't wrap my head around it. What do I do?



I would recommend xubuntu first. But that's because I haven't tried kubuntu in ages, but I have good interactions with kde softwares like k3b.

Try both. But you should also try Trisquel even if AMD gpu is not supported, it's not that it does not work it's that 3D acceleration is not supported because it requires binary blobs, 2D acceleration works just fine tho.



after fumbling around with it, i think i'm just retarded. apparently i can't recursively call the "iter" process with a "let" statement.



Okay, thanks


What are the risks after buying new USB peripherals?



So I've downloaded the source code from the link provided on the fsf directory:


git clone git://git.savannah.gnu.org/gnuzilla.git

After reading the first hundred lines of the makefile I decided to launch it to see how it goes.

Basically it's going to download the ff source code then apply it's configuration, it won't compile the source code but configure it so that you can compile Icecat afterwords.

I'm working on Trisquel and I had to install bzr, mercurial and devscripts otherwise the makefile wouldn't do it's job. The longest part is the "rebranding" part, it takes "find" 10 min to approximately do it's job depending on your hardware.

Be sure to install these software otherwise when you're going to relaunch the makefile it's going to say that the "output" folder already exist and you'll have to delete it. Or maybe there's a way to continue where it halted?

After that you get a source code name Icecat thats waiting to be compiled.

As I understand it you can also make your own modification to the makefile.

Icecat 38 was the last supported Windows version.

And yes, I did try every suggested thing I managed to find in google with no results. At this point I don't even care about fixing it that much, I just wanna know WHY the fuck it's happening.

You'll have to test (or find reviews of) each DE to see what you prefer the most. That and the package manager are mainly the only relevant differences between distros.

>Xfce or Cinnamon

Linux Mint: https://linuxmint.com/download.php


Kubuntu: https://kubuntu.org/getkubuntu/


Ubuntu Budgie: https://ubuntubudgie.org/downloads


PopOS: https://system76.com/pop

KDE, Cinnamon and Xfce (on Mint) are most windows-like by default. So you'll probably want one of those.

You can also try Manjaro with any DE, but I'd generally recommend debian based distros for babies.

No, imo. I recommend C/C++ if you want to use the language in "the real world" as C/C++ just have better documentation, tooling and 3rd-party libraries (C/C++ is also more widely used). I think D, Julia and Ada are superior to Go (and Rust). Nim is also a very interesting language.


>Also why is rust hated?

It's ugly and Ada already exists. Unlike Rust, Ada project isn't run by SJWs. Also, Ada is more mature.





it has to be running in the background while invisible to the user, might look like a system app in the apps menu






Ada is broken and created by Jews. The Areina 5 cluster disaster was proof.

Rust looks good because it's library support and documentation, which is really helpful for gamedev. Golang is the same but less-so.

Now it's a matter of Rust vs Go. What is better for gamedev?

I'm trying to find info on a new Samsung U32R59C monitor (pic related). The official Samsung page doesn't say anything about adaptive sync, but another site says it has freesync. Aside from that I'm trying to find info on if/when vendors will start stocking it. It's officially released and I've found some places that sell it but it's very fresh, one site in the UK just started stocking it today.

Any input would be appreciated.

The reason I'm interested in it is it's a 4k curved monitor

>inb4 curved meme

It's a VA panel and curved mitigates the gamma shift problems of VA. This is the one reason I haven't bought into the 4k meme yet, from first hand experience it's not worth it except if you're up close. And I don't like IPS.



Looking at https://displaysolutions.samsung.com/monitor/detail/1419/U32R59C#specs

It doesn't say anything about adaptive sync or freesync so I wouldn't buy it just for that in case the site that said it was just spewing bullshit (Which has happened to me before).



Nobody? I didn't want to waste a thread and couldn't find a thread in the catalog where I might get an answer.

I was thinking of using a virtual box, until an anon said it was too slow, yet running with a usb would take some doing and a usb large enough. I would really appreciate some advice.



Try live usb first, irrc there is an option in rufus for persistent storage. Otherwise, you can also partition your usb stick with one data partition. Unplug you main hdd if possible, then it would be impossible to harm your files and original os.

>Ada is broken

Got any single fact to back that up? Ada is way more mature than Rust or Golang.

>Ada was created by Jews

Soydev pls, that's disinfo. Ada is designed by a committee.


Unironically C++ since it has better libraries



>a virtual machine or run it live on a usb

both. VirtualBox is fine. By installing it in a VM you can practice installing GNU/Linux. By testing booting from a LiveCD you can confirm that your HW is supported. Use something like Devuan (https://devuan.org/) since its installation .iso has proprietary firmware. I would advice against using Linux Mint, if you want to have everything OOB then just install Xubuntu (https://xubuntu.org) But installing Devuan isn't really any harder but just remember to select that you want to install the Devuan desktop and select XFCE from the list (use Space Bar to select options and Return to advance and Tab or Arrow Keys to change the highlighted selection if you run the installer in text-mode)




>Ichbiah was a descendent of Greek and Turkish Jews[1][2] from Thessaloniki who emigrated to France.[3]

What IDE does /tech/ use? I'm not sure if I want to use emacs as IDE, because I'm beginner with both programming and emacs. Visual Studio is said to be the most-hand holding IDE out there, maybe even too hand-holding. I also don't feel like accepting Visual Studios data collection. At the moment I'm choosing between learning C++ or C#. It would be nice if someone could give me a little push to the right direction.

So I fell for the linux meme and installed ubuntu and I can't get my fucking mouse to work right. The mouse pointer speed is so fast I can't hit anything and the scroll wheel speed is so slow it takes a fucking eon just to get to the bottom of a page. I can't find any way to adjust this shit and search results don't turn up anything helpful. Am I just a retard or something?



nevermind, i'm just a fucking retard. I fixed it myself, disregard my cock sucking.



>What IDE does /tech/ use?

Before I have been using geany >>1063916

but it was to slow for me.

Now I use emacs, and it's pretty good, especially the shortcuts and a lot of addons/modes etc. I can't program in elisp though. Learning emacs isn't that hard - it took me a week to learn basics.

>At the moment I'm choosing between learning C++ or C#.

Maybe for work, but for your project better don't use C#, because even though there are free as in freedom implementations - mono, some libraries, for example .NET are patented by Microsoft, that is you can't modify the library, because Microsoft can sue you. But it's your choice after all.


good youtube alternative?



Selfhosting with GNU Mediagoblin. The only irreplacable part of youtube is the community, make one and come back then.






ubuntu is an african word that means retard.



Thanks anon.

I will look install geany. I have a lot of stuff that needs to be done and can't be bothered to dive into emacs more deeply. I have downloaded Uncle Daves emacs tutorial series and I know the very basics of emacs. I will probably switch at some point when I have used emacs as a text editor for longer. At the moment I feel like C++ would be a great starting point for my programming journey, I already downloaded all the C++/programming related pdfs from >>>/pdfs/. Not sure if I should start with books or some online courses, I will see which one feels better.

First goal will be to create tetris.

i'm seriously feeling like a retard right now. I've been using linux for all of a day and I literally can't get anything to work right. I just want the stupid fucking lights on my keyboard to work and to be able to adjust the DPI on my mouse, so I found openrazer. Only problem, my mouse isn't supported in the main branch or whatever, I have zero concept of coding. I found this github page where they say that the test branch of razergenie supports this mouse, but I have absolutely no idea how to install it. I figured out how the terminal thing works but this is talking about meson build files or some such shit and it's not formatted in a way for me to copy paste like a nigger.



if someone could explain to me how to make this thing work i'd really appreciate it.

i'm extremely frustrated right now, but honestly this is kind offun





- open a terminal

git clone https://github.com/z3ntu/RazerGenie.git

meson RazerGenie-master

ninja -C RazerGenie-master




honestly not sure if this post is for deterring people from linux, but otherwise, go buy read a book on linux fundamentals and have a good read. Go buy a shitty ass laptop and fuck around with it 'till your hearts content. You're not going to learn anything here.

When i turned on my computer today, Windows 8.1 wouldn't post. The CPU fan was staying at a high RPM and no display. I put a HDMI cable on the GPU going to one monitor and a DVI-D cable going to another to reinstall Windows. Using integrated graphics of the AMD CPU i installed the latest Windows 8.1 drivers and installation gave an error, but it always does that for me and it still worked fine. Once the GPU was recognized i played CSGO and Arma 3 to benchmark and it ran just fine. I turned off the computer and turned it back on and there was no image on both monitors and CPU fan stayed at a constant high RPM. I used a 800w power supply (doesn't have a rating) and a 700w gold rated power supply. I tried changing the bios but it still fails to consistently give an image once started. I kept a backup of the original bios just in case. Also this card won't work on my main computer? it only seems to accept NVIDIA GPUs. ( Tried R9 270x, R9 290) Both used to work on said pc.

I don't want to reinstall windows every time i want to use it, any idea why it's doing this?

*This GPU was used to mine

Just login to your default shell and then type the name of the shell you want to change to and press enter.

Like type


Hit enter and you are in a bash shell unless your OS is malware or something. SH is just a symbolic link to your default shell, change the symbolic link to change your default shell.

What's the best text editor that gives me this feature, whether with a plugin or otherwise?

To be specific, I don't care about autocomplete itself, I just want this popup that reminds me of the names and definitions of functions. I often forget the exact function name or arguments into it, so I just want to be able to see it without having to switch to a different file. And I want to see more than just the name, I also want to see the arguments, and ideally return value as well. In fact I'd prefer if I could turn the autocomplete off specifically, since I find it very disrupting when the popup hijacks tab/enter keys for itself.

I'm willing to switch to a different editor just for this thing, my programs are getting to the point where it's very hard to remember everything by memory.

TL;DR I want a popup that shows the name and properties of the function I'm typing out. Which editor can I get it in an how?



If youre dead set on using windows, and you insist on using something newer than 7, i'd use 10. i had nothing but problems using 8.


Soo... I fucked up a partition using fsck

any good way to recover it when even testdisk fucks up?

testdisk won't find my partition and photorec shits up destination folder with "recup_dir.1" (...) "recup_dir.9000" folders and most of them have crap like "0000000001.txt" "054634scgfsd.txt" etc.



Did you fsck using linux and failed? Testdisk could still recover that by deepscanning the thing and writing over the proper disk table over the disk. Just scan not sure which option but once you could see your old files completely on that partition table data you can proceed to write that over your disk and it's like nothing really happened. (though you might want to check for bad or pending sectors after)



fsck aborts after step 1 and testdisks' deep scan shits up around, like, 20 partitions and all of them say "partition corrupted" or "no files found" when trying to open


I'm worried I'll get in trouble for asking this, but fuck it:

My computer seems to "track" information about the IP address used by my internet connection, even when I change networks by going to a new house or location. I've followed instructions to change my IP address in the past, but there seems to be something about my computer that retains core information and still allows me to be tracked even when I use different networks. Is there any way to change this? I'm not very tech savvy, so I may not be explaining things very well.



I followed your advice and installed Windows 10.

Unfortunately this didn't fix the whole problem, but definitely helped. I have set the bios primary display to onboard because that's the only way i can get an image, connecting the GPU to a monitor once in desktop does give an image. I got an error twice, "Driver Power State Failure " when i left the HDMI cable connected to the GPU while attempting to start the computer, and on third attempt, i removed HDMI cable from GPU and when i got into the desktop, Radeon Settings said there was a boot problem and all settings were reset which never happened before.

*I searched if someone had a similar problem and found nothing. I think this means it is an isolated incident and either the GPU or Motherboard is at fault. (i am guessing, i have no idea what is going on)

*"If youre dead set on using windows"

You do have a point, i will try Linux and see if that helps.

So, I was reading my install script for cloveOS and noticed that grub was recognizing my units as an i386 architecture.

I think I understand now, 32 bit CPU can run a 64bit program. But I could have sworn this was a 64bit CPU...

basic unix autist tools:


Here you learn how to use everything else. Almost any software you use will come with a manual page. man is short for manual, and man itself has what is known as a man page. But be aware that lots of software include extra documentation in the /usr/share/doc directory, often in the form of compressed html pages you can browse locally.

Every other suggestion I have can be learned by reading man pages or web pages in /usr/share/doc/, with some exceptions, which the program's manual page will mention anyway.

>a pager

You need to know how to use one to browse manual pages, though they're useful for anything that floods your terminal with more than a screenful of output. There are many pagers such as less or more. I'll go ahead and suggest you learn less, it's what most people use nowadays and just a more featureful version of more.

>text editor

Grab and go text editors such as notepad or common GUI unix alternatives such as mousepad are what I personally call "tard computing". Any tard can pick them up and use them instantly, but you'll pay very dearly for that by losing efficiency you could gain by spending 30 minutes learning a slightly more complex editor that will save you massive amounts of time. Nowadays people either use something based on vi, likely vim, or emacs. I personally use neovim which is a fork of vim.

Text editing is a huge part of computing, so I really recommend you learn a non-"tard computing" text editor.

>a shell

Learn basic shell scripting and features from your shell to get whatever you want to do done, without much user interaction, and very fast.

Remember all those windows programs that do things like "hey this program can grab a folder full of flacs and turn them into mp3s" or "hey this program can mass rename files"? Well, with a shell you can do that and so much more without requiring a specialized piece of software, you just need commandline software that does a single task and you piece togheter any functionality that follows a pattern with shell scripting, and since all you need is the shell and a program that does one thing, you'll be able to do so much more nobody has ever made easily available elsewhere.

Just today I have used a simple shell script written on the spot to upload a bunch of games to multiple file hosts, organize them in alphabetical order, and then I posted the output in a pirate forum.

Most linux distros nowadays come with bash as the default shell, it's fully posix compatible (in that it'll run anything written for the theoretical shell specified on the posix standard) but it has some incompatible extensions of its own which add funcionality or user convenience. A minority of distros have zsh as the default shell, and people often switch from bash to zsh for its features.

I personally would recommend you just go with your distro's default to start with, because if it's the distro's default it'll already come configured for you. You can find the default by running the command "echo $SHELL" which will output in your terminal the value of the variable "SHELL", which should be set to your current shell.

>software that is commonly useful for scripting

This is a basic starter pack of programs that you will make use of commonly while shell scripting.

sort, find, parallel, wc, wget (or curl), touch, awk, sed, grep, cut, tr, xxd.

You'll commonly use these programs within other programs, for instance xxd can turn a text editor which can hook into a shell such as vim or emacs into a hex editor. That is the unix way.

>random software

Just run "ls /bin" and pick something there at random to read the manual page of when you don't know what to learn. Chances are it's useful.

>common software

Software people commonly use. I recommend p7zip for an unix alternative to 7zip, ffmpeg for general purpose encoding, mpv for playing video, cmus for listening to music, gnupg (a.k.a gpg) for encrypting files or messages aswell as authentication (for instance with SSH), openssh for remote access to your computer, wol for using the wake on lan funcionality on your PC.

All of those programs are popular enough that I doubt any single distro lacks them.

That's what I could come up with on the spot, these are all basic unix autist tools that the majority of unix autists should be familiar with.



Your HDD is at danger with such temps but since that's a Hitachi it's probably gonna take those temps better than others.

The optimal temp is 40C on drives.

Maybe add more fans inside since the HDD also generates heat, also NVMe might become hot too.



This is the common problem when you remove all fans and use water cooling, the heat your mobo and other components are making isn't dissipated properly.



Why not both?

C2D is cheap like you can get one for $20-40.

Ryzen 5 laptops are great though and probably much more secure. C2D might even also be affected with vulnerabilities if any you should be using older Atoms and Celerons.

Oh and another thing.

I think all you really need to know to "know linux" and unix systems in general, from an user perspective, is the shell, your terminal emulator and how to interact with either.

From there on it's all just looking for a good commandline program which does what you want and reading its manual page, then using your knowledge of the shell to perform your task as efficiently as possible.

I'm looking at this from the perspective of someone who uses a full on interface, if you're going to go commandline only, you'll want to add tmux to the list of essential software because then you can split a command line into multiple ones and it adds basic functionality that usually your desktop environment/window manager/etc provides such as copy paste. I personally learned tmux anyway because I often ssh into my computer when I'm not at home and my internet connection is too slow to forward my interface (i3), while forwarding just a command line takes only a few bytes per second of bandwidth and is all I really need when away.

*top right. The case is weird in that it only really accomodates one HDD right next to the PSU.




Absolutely top tier posts. Thanks anon!



Yes, your OS is the culprit.

I suggest you use Manjaro from now on if you're too paranoid about it but that paranoia is true, there's plenty of trackers everywhere. Linuxmint is Mossad Israel don't use it.

If you use Google Chrome, it sends out a unique ID every time it sees you online mainly for tracking purposes so Google Ads will still know who you are. Even if you set up a VPN, heck they even haven't implemented a secure webrtc.

Firefox also does it and what's even worse is when George Soros bought the whole thing, they put this new feature which tracks your "News" data which is what news you read or literally everything you browse. This is to takedown most alternative news websites that know too much and are threat to their next step of globalinvasion also to spy on you (news was just a cover), they have you covered on both sides, Firefox and Google Chrome I believe had this feature since yesteryear or even way before ESR 52 something.

Not to mention even other clever malwares like botnets might even be running on your PC right now. It could span from glowers to hacker groups or independent superhackers on omegle.

Now my personal question, is it ads? I assume there's only two things:

LSO cookies (flash cookie)

and browser fingerprint.

Browser fingerprinting is a clusterfuck. It's a lot more safer to use a separate space or a Virtual Machine/Emulator for browsers that can also fake your screen resolution.

Fingerprinting can span from making webgl javascript and others benchmark your PC specs and even make it spit a Unique ID. Most websites take that ID mainly google syndication and even facebook .net. I suggest you use Umatrix and manually block facebook dot net

Now on browsers, avoid the most common ones, mainly Chrome and Firefox. There's plenty of browsers on Manjaro's repo but plenty more with Arch linux.

The disk heating up might be that monthly defrag that windows does automatically but if it heating up happens frequently it might either be malware/bot miner or you have bad cooling.

I'd check if a live OS runs the HDD at around normal temps which should be 38-42. Other thing is if the HDD is going bad, check for the SMART levels of the disk.

Also think that place isn't good for the HDD since HDDs emit magnetic field while the PSU being right next to it might cause problems on the drive's life span.

Not sure but don't those fans cancel themselves out?

Checked both drives with Malwarebytes, found nothing. At startup it begins with 36 C, but slowly climbs to kingdom come (rate depends on whether case panel is open or closed, which kinda defeats the point of the fans). Other than that, SMART levels seem fine. Can't do anything about the HDD placement, cause case was built that way.

Cooling setup works fine, essentially radiator and fan on top left suck in air while bottom fan on radiator pushes out hot air for the GPU fans to blast out the bottom.

What's the best and easiest way to download YouTube videos to archive them?





So I was looking at my company's source code for uploading our uptime on units for logging in an SQL Database. The init for the Azure Database class looks something like this.

def __init__(self):
# Establish connection to database
uid = base64.b64decode(b'x').decode('utf-8')
pwd = base64.b64decode(b'x').decode('utf-8')
connectionString = 'Driver={ODBC Driver 17 for SQL Server};\
Connection Timeout=30'%(uid,pwd)
self.cnxn = pyodbc.connect(connectionString)
self.cursor = self.cnxn.cursor()
self.engine = sqlalchemy.create_engine('mssql+pyodbc://%s:%s@x.database.windows.net:x/x?driver=ODBC+Driver+17+for+SQL+Server'%(uid,pwd), echo=True)

Obviously, redacted the actual information, but I'm wondering about the uid and pwd lines. It's not quite plaintext, but you can easily decode it to be by just putting in the b64decode into Python somewhere and retrieve the usernames and passwords this way. Is this a safe way to go about it? I was taught it was bad practice to store passwords anywhere close to source code like that, especially when it's practically plaintext. Is there a better way of going about it?


Is there a way to fetch ssl certs from a centralized cert server instead of the website I'm connecting to?

It's a pretty retarded idea to have the server serve it because if it's hacked then the hacker can just replace the cert, and it also allows your ISP to know exactly what website you're connecting to because the cert is sent over plaintext as before the cert is sent there's no way to encrypt the connection.



Yes, quite bad practice. Good practice depends on the setup you're using, but amounts to having the credentials fed to the program at runtime (even at startup), either through environment variables, a config file, a database, or even just authenticate through PAM or AD (not usually a good idea to mix DB access credentials with system auth, though). You want the credentials stored completely out of the codebase because otherwise they are committed into version control.

Often what I'll do for my projects like that is have multiple executables, one core one that runs the logic of the program and another to manage settings. The settings file is usually something like json or yaml (through StrictYAML of course, because fuck raw yaml) so you can hand-edit it if you want or need, but you can also just work through the settings management program to work with credentials and stuff (which usually is stored in a separate file from the regular settings).

I've seen safe-ish systems done sort of this way by templating the files and having the username and password injected into the source code on deployment, but it's kind of a silly and hacky way of going about it.



It's not just the cert that's sent over plaintext, it's also the domain you're accessing, both through DNS and for SNI in your Client Hello. Collecting the certificate from elsewhere won't help you much at all at this point until ESNI fully rolls out. Firefox supports ESNI, but it won't solve the problem with the cleartext cert, and also depends on websites to properly respond in sort.

Even when you account for all that, though, rdns can fudge your expectations of privacy anyway because you accessed a particular IP. Even if rdns isn't mapped through, it's easy to create a simple lookup map based on people who are using plaintext DNS. The full map of all public IPv4 DNS entries could fit in a high-end laptop's RAM.

For now, your best bet is to be irritated and complain, research, and try to figure out better ways to protect privacy. It's either participate, hide what you can through TOR or whatever, or just wait and hope things get better.



>What are the best most stable nVidia drivers after 385.69?

Just stick with this version if it's not giving you problems, newer drivers are absolute garbage.

Story time. Until some weeks ago I was using a pretty old version (372.90 or some shit) and everything was working perfectly fine, but then I installed a game that refused to run with an error message asking me to update to 384.94 or newer. So I updated to the newest version available, 425.31. Did a proper update, first uninstalling the old driver with DDU while booted in safe mode, and installing the new driver after rebooting. Now the problems.

First, with the new driver there was a noticeable drop in frame rates across most games I usually play, but I could live with that. It wasn't a huge difference and I've always heard of Nvidia nerfing older generation GPUs in newer drivers (I have a GTX 1070), so this wasn't surprising in the least, and I could live with it.

I've also instantly noticed that with the new driver, Windows fonts were less sharp, being rendered slightly blurrier. I've checked font rendering settings in Windows and in the driver settings, and found nothing out of ordinary or changed settings. It wasn't related to Cleartype settings or DPI settings, it was something else. I've also verified monitor settings and refresh rates, and everything was as expected. Now that I think about it maybe it wasn't just the fonts, the entire desktop was probably slightly blurrier. Annoying but I could live with it, too.

However, the final straw is that my mouse started suttering - the pointer would randomly freeze for 1 to 3 seconds and then jump to where it was supposed to go, sometimes only once every 2 minutes, other times up to 2 or 3 times per minute. Happened both on desktop and while playing games, usually on games it would happen more often. After days wasted with all kinds of troubleshooting I found out that gpu drivers often cause this, and almost everyone with similar problems fix them by updating or rolling back video drivers.

First tried rolling back to 411.70, then 398.82, both didn't work since the mouse stutter persisted. 411.70 also still had the font blurriness problem, but not 398.82 - fonts and desktop were sharp like I was used to. Didn't give up and rolled back once more to 384.94, newest version I had been asked to update - and finally not only everything was fixed with my mouse working fine again and no blurry fonts, performance is great and apparently better than the older driver I was using before. So I'd recommend 384.94, never tried 385.69 but is probably fine too, I might give it a try.


Which distro should I use: Parabola or Hyperbola?


Can I get some advice on issues with getting visuals to show up on a cintiq pro 13?


My Cintiq tends to work for a while with no issues, then it ends up giving me no visuals. Just a little box saying "no signal". I don't know if the mini displayport on my laptop is bad, because I've tried my Cintiq on other computers with the same exact cables, and there were no issues. I even tried an XP Pen on my laptop, and I'm thinking that it worked fine mainly because it's HDMI rather than mini displayport.

Has anyone else had this type of issue before?


I've got a relatively fresh Gentoo install on my laptop, and I can't get firefux to display some unicode properly. Like the little symbols on the menubar here on 8chan show up as unicode boxes. I have unicode fonts installed, and my locale is a utf8 locale. It works fine one my desktop, which I've been running Gentoo on for years. What am I missing now that I didn't miss then?

>However, the final straw is that my mouse started suttering

Clear message for goyim to consume the new gpu.

>rolling back

Probably the old driver got patched with this. Clear message, again.


Probably low voltage causes it to not be able to handle most devices plugged. Usually if the battery is at a lower percentages 0-10% the overall performance also degrades that is due to lower wattage of the AC adapter (lower amps during early charge).

Though did the laptop detect the display? If you use linux you can just read the dmesg and other logs and find out the problem immediately.



Is the cable into your Cintiq firmly seated or can you lift the cable and it straightens out? Over time the weight of the cable can distort the port and fuck it up. I've had nothing but problems over the years with Wacoms and for the price you're paying for a Cintiq it's absurd how poorly made they are.

My laptop is having extremely serious internet connection issues ever since last night. Most of the time when I try to visit a page or download something the connection will drop midway or a connection won't be established at all. I have to keep refreshing constantly in the hopes that maybe the page will completely load or the download will finish. I tested a couple of other devices and it only seems to be this machine having problems.

How do I troubleshoot this? I have a Lenovo Thinkpad G50 running Linux Mint 17.2, but I don't really understand Linux because the system is autistic as hell and the (((community))) is fucking useless in terms of meaningful support.



It depends on how you connect to the internet. Is it a direct connection using a CAT5 cable, is it wifi, or is it mobile broadband?



Wifi. Sorry for forgetting that important detail. (Fucking verification keeps shitting things up right now.)




You can also read the manual for nmcli.

Open terminal, type_

man nmcli

This will give you options, one being the option to turn off all radio signal to the unit including wifi and wwan, then turning it back on to see if it auto-corrects itself.



adding: you may have a hardware problem with that specific unit, if all others respond properly. It could be something as simple as checking the connection to the mini pci-e inside your unit. Or the card itself. There again, it could be countless other things, but it's a start.

Which kCompositor scaling method is better for general performance, "crisp" or "smooth"?

I've aggregated searches across many engines, and answers seem fickle, or I am just misreading.

The only simple conclusion I've made about these scaling methods is that "accurate" is higher quality than both at the cost of performance. This came from both my own eyes and from what I found in searches.

Yet, I have yet to see a thorough comparing and contrasting between just "smooth" and "crisp". From my eyes, I can't tell which performs better or which looks better. So, I'm coming to /tech/ for help.

As trivial as an issue this may sound, I need a compositor for vSync when I have to use the integrated graphics instead of dedicated graphics on my laptop. But, I don't need scaling to be high quality so much as offering good performace for the graphics work I do.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.



Crisp looks like nearest neighbor, so crisp. If it's being done hardware, it could go either way.



Thank you, that was my guess. I'd appreciate knowing where you found that "crisp" operates like nearest neighbor, too.

>If it's being done hardware, it could go either way

What do you mean my this? If "smooth" requires more filtering, how could it grant better performance than "crisp" with hardware?



>I'd appreciate knowing where you found that "crisp" operates like nearest neighbor, too.

I looked at it.

>What do you mean my this? If "smooth" requires more filtering, how could it grant better performance than "crisp" with hardware?

Things on a GPU that require more work often turn out to be faster due to optimization or how the work scales. If it's done in hardware, it probably doesn't matter either way.



>I looked at it

I'm jealous.

>Things on a GPU that require more work often turn out to be faster due to optimization or how the work scales. If it's done in hardware, it probably doesn't matter either way.

I already understood that completely. You said "it could go either way", which implies it could performance could go in either direction. It didn't seem to imply you meant that it would be neutral.

Check the processes in task manager. There should be a process ending in 32.exe or some such shit that will disappear the moment you click somewhere.

I used to get mouse lag/freeze when I would yank the internet cable out and it was trying to reconnect. Used to drive me nuts. Started doing it when I manually ended a process to free up more ram.

I updated to a 430.64 for Rage 2. Game was shit and I haven't had problems. I'm keeping my old driver as an instal as well as 309.08.

I'm getting pissy with Cemu using way too much ram and i think it's a GLCache shaders issue.

>Clear message for goyim to consume the new gpu.

>Probably the old driver got patched with this. Clear message, again.


If that's what it is, it's a pretty retarded way to do it, since the first thing a good goy would try to fix this problem would be buying a new mouse. It is true that they gimp older generation cards on newer drivers though and it's not a recent practice, first time I noticed that was when I had a GTX 285 and soon after Nvidia released the GTX 400 series, I updated my drivers and noticed a severe performance drop for no reason.


I had tried all that. When the problem started my first suspicion was malware or miner, checked my cpu and memory usage (nothing out of ordinary), and ran several different virus removal tools, malware scanners and antirootkit tools, and they found nothing. Disabled weird processes. Disabled all my network devices in device manager. Nothing worked.

The mouse stuttering did go away completely whenever I was booted in safe mode, though. And it didn't go away completely but happened far less often, whenever I disabled all Nvidia related services and processes (the problem is that if you do that, you can't access the driver control panel and any desktop or game settings you had changed won't go in effect).

That's what tipped me off that the problem was probably video driver related, and doing a web search for people with similar problems confirmed that. For some people mouse lag/freeze/stuttering can be caused by a rogue process such as in your case, but for most it is gpu drivers (always Nvidia, ATI/AMD and Intel don't seem to cause this problem). I've seen some fix by updating to a newer version, most are only able to fix by rolling back to an old version. It also appears to affect more people using Windows 7 or 8. Using 384.94 for almost 2 weeks now and can confirm that the mouse problem did go away completely.



Oh okay, so I double checked. When my Cintiq is plugged in and turned on, my laptop's display settings (I use Windows 10) doesn't detect the Cintiq. What should I do?


Is GNUstep still actively developed and usable? I'm thinking to install the GNUstep ALT Linux starterkit.



Yes, GNUstep is actively developed, but don't know what kind of usability you think about. Just try it, it isn't even a DE/WM it just runs on top of X, so you could probably run it in parallel with your current DE/WM.



>n00b here. Will website load faster if I put all my css styling inside html instead keeping it in a separate .css file?

If your processor have more than one core and your browser isn't retarded, files can probably be loaded in parallel, so better split the files. And if you're not going to add more JS than actual content, your site will work smoothly.

That's the thing. It works fine on my desktop, but I don't know what I'm missing on my laptop. Here's a pic


What's the difference between arch-linux and gentoo? I want to find a secure OS for doing /tech/ stuff but I want it to be secure and not require months/years of learning just to be able to use it.

So to recap:

>gentoo vs arch-linux

>pros and cons of previous

>must be safe

>must not be eternal asspain to learn how to use



>What's the difference between arch-linux and gentoo?

Gentoo is simply more flexible and doesn't make your choices for you.

>I want it to be secure

Arch uses systemd, which is a black box of 1.2 million lines of C code most of which nobody read twice, therefore it's inherently insecure.

The less bloat you have, the more secure you are and Gentoo makes it piss easy to trim bloat via USE flags.

You can also use the Hardened profile if you need some extra hardening (https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Hardened_Gentoo).

If security is your top priority though, consider taking a look at OpenBSD rather than GNU/Linux.

Needless to say, no matter which system you use, security mostly depends on good practices and you not being a retard.

>require months/years of learning just to be able to use it

It might take a week or so to get used to it if you're coming from windows.

Learn to use the command line and read the docs and you'll be fine.

I highly recommend you read this book, especially if you decide to go with Gentoo: http://swift.siphos.be/linux_sea/

It's written by a Gentoo dev and it's a good intro to Gentoo and GNU/Linux in general.

It's written with absolute newbs in mind.

Such cunts. What is the optimal driver for a 1050ti?



I can only speak from my own experience that I just described, but being a GTX 10xx series same as mine, I'd recommend 384.94, or some other version prior to 398.82.



CMAKE_CXX_STANDARD doesn't actually set c++17 on its own, but instead gnu++17. You need to also switch CMAKE_CXX_EXTENSIONS to OFF.



Not. Do not have network shares of any sort available over the internet directly. Use a proper VPN if you want to mount remotely.



I don't have them exposed to the internet, but they are on a private network that some people have access to (the office).

What happens if one of them is a script kiddie, what happens if one of them is CIA? you never know



> I updated my drivers and noticed a severe performance drop for no reason.

This happened to my old laptop too which had the geforce go old shit.

After updating to the new driver it became slow unable to run left4dead and also the size of the driver is 3gb though I tried finding why and where is that coming from I couldn't



Is it CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS that I need to use to set c++17?



Nope, that won't get you compiler portability. For instance, here's my set of flags for standard C++14:


If you use something similar for C++17, it should work for you.




Thanks for the good posts lads.

A couple more small questions
