>Is there any other botnet on Xubuntu I should be aware of

Linux kernel




>Is there any other botnet on Xubuntu I should be aware of

Proprietary software, also called nonfree software, means software that doesn't respect users' freedom and community. A proprietary program puts its developer or owner in a position of power over its users. This power is in itself an injustice.

The point of this page is that the initial injustice of proprietary software often leads to further injustices: malicious functionalities.

Power corrupts; the proprietary program's developer is tempted to design the program to mistreat its users. (Software whose functioning mistreats the user is called malware.) Of course, the developer usually does not do this out of malice, but rather to profit more at the users' expense. That does not make it any less nasty or more legitimate.

Yielding to that temptation has become ever more frequent; nowadays it is standard practice. Modern proprietary software is typically a way to be had.

Since 1983, the Free Software Movement has campaigned for computer users' freedom—for users to control the software they use, rather than vice versa. When a program respects users' freedom and community, we call it “free software.”

We also sometimes call it “libre software” to emphasize that we're talking about liberty, not price. Some proprietary (nonfree) programs, such as Photoshop, are very expensive; others, such as Flash Player, are available gratis—but that's a minor detail. Either way, they give the program's developer power over the users, power that no one should have.

Those two nonfree programs have something else in common: they are both malware. That is, both have functionalities designed to mistreat the user. Proprietary software nowadays is often malware because the developers' power corrupts them. That directory lists around 350 different malicious functionalities (as of October, 2018), but it is surely just the tip of the iceberg.



>Is there any other botnet on Xubuntu I should be aware of

With free software, the users control the program, both individually and collectively. So they control what their computers do (assuming those computers are loyal and do what the users' programs tell them to do).

With proprietary software, the program controls the users, and some other entity (the developer or “owner”) controls the program. So the proprietary program gives its developer power over its users. That is unjust in itself; moreover, it tempts the developer to mistreat the users in other ways.

Even when proprietary software isn't downright malicious, its developers have an incentive to make it addictive, controlling and manipulative. You can say, as does the author of that article, that the developers have an ethical obligation not to do that, but generally they follow their interests. If you want this not to happen, make sure the program is controlled by its users.

Freedom means having control over your own life. If you use a program to carry out activities in your life, your freedom depends on your having control over the program. You deserve to have control over the programs you use, and all the more so when you use them for something important in your life.

Users' control over the program requires four essential freedoms.

(0) The freedom to run the program as you wish, for whatever purpose.

(1) The freedom to study the program's “source code”, and change it, so the program does your computing as you wish. Programs are written by programmers in a programming language—like English combined with algebra—and that form of the program is the “source code”. Anyone who knows programming, and has the program in source code form, can read the source code, understand its functioning, and change it too. When all you get is the executable form, a series of numbers that are efficient for the computer to run but extremely hard for a human being to understand, understanding and changing the program in that form are forbiddingly hard.

(2) The freedom to make and distribute exact copies when you wish. (It is not an obligation; doing this is your choice. If the program is free, that doesn't mean someone has an obligation to offer you a copy, or that you have an obligation to offer him a copy. Distributing a program to users without freedom mistreats them; however, choosing not to distribute the program—using it privately—does not mistreat anyone.)

(3) The freedom to make and distribute copies of your modified versions, when you wish.

The first two freedoms mean each user can exercise individual control over the program. With the other two freedoms, any group of users can together exercise collective control over the program. With all four freedoms, the users fully control the program. If any of them is missing or inadequate, the program is proprietary (nonfree), and unjust.

Other kinds of works are also used for practical activities, including recipes for cooking, educational works such as textbooks, reference works such as dictionaries and encyclopedias, fonts for displaying paragraphs of text, circuit diagrams for hardware for people to build, and patterns for making useful (not merely decorative) objects with a 3D printer. Since these are not software, the free software movement strictly speaking doesn't cover them; but the same reasoning applies and leads to the same conclusion: these works should carry the four freedoms.

A free program allows you to tinker with it to make it do what you want (or cease to do something you dislike). Tinkering with software may sound ridiculous if you are accustomed to proprietary software as a sealed box, but in the Free World it's a common thing to do, and a good way to learn programming. Even the traditional American pastime of tinkering with cars is obstructed because cars now contain nonfree software.



>Is there any other botnet on Xubuntu I should be aware of

If the users don't control the program, the program controls the users. With proprietary software, there is always some entity, the developer or “owner” of the program, that controls the program—and through it, exercises power over its users. A nonfree program is a yoke, an instrument of unjust power.

In outrageous cases (though this outrage has become quite usual) proprietary programs are designed to spy on the users, restrict them, censor them, and abuse them. For instance, the operating system of Apple iThings does all of these, and so does Windows on mobile devices with ARM chips. Windows, mobile phone firmware, and Google Chrome for Windows include a universal back door that allows some company to change the program remotely without asking permission. The Amazon Kindle has a back door that can erase books.

The use of nonfree software in the “internet of things” would turn it into the “internet of telemarketers” as well as the “internet of snoopers”.

With the goal of ending the injustice of nonfree software, the free software movement develops free programs so users can free themselves. We began in 1984 by developing the free operating system GNU. Today, millions of computers run GNU, mainly in the GNU/Linux combination.

Distributing a program to users without freedom mistreats those users; however, choosing not to distribute the program does not mistreat anyone. If you write a program and use it privately, that does no wrong to others. (You do miss an opportunity to do good, but that's not the same as doing wrong.) Thus, when we say all software must be free, we mean that every copy must come with the four freedoms, but we don't mean that someone has an obligation to offer you a copy.

Nonfree Software and SaaSS

Nonfree software was the first way for companies to take control of people's computing. Nowadays, there is another way, called Service as a Software Substitute, or SaaSS. That means letting someone else's server do your own computing tasks.

SaaSS doesn't mean the programs on the server are nonfree (though they often are). Rather, using SaaSS causes the same injustices as using a nonfree program: they are two paths to the same bad place. Take the example of a SaaSS translation service: The user sends text to the server, and the server translates it (from English to Spanish, say) and sends the translation back to the user. Now the job of translating is under the control of the server operator rather than the user.

If you use SaaSS, the server operator controls your computing. It requires entrusting all the pertinent data to the server operator, which will be forced to show it to the state as well—who does that server really serve, after all?

Primary And Secondary Injustices

When you use proprietary programs or SaaSS, first of all you do wrong to yourself, because it gives some entity unjust power over you. For your own sake, you should escape. It also wrongs others if you make a promise not to share. It is evil to keep such a promise, and a lesser evil to break it; to be truly upright, you should not make the promise at all.

There are cases where using nonfree software puts pressure directly on others to do likewise. Skype is a clear example: when one person uses the nonfree Skype client software, it requires another person to use that software too—thus both surrender their freedom. (Google Hangouts have the same problem.) It is wrong even to suggest using such programs. We should refuse to use them even briefly, even on someone else's computer.



>Is there any other botnet on Xubuntu I should be aware of

Another harm of using nonfree programs and SaaSS is that it rewards the perpetrator, encouraging further development of that program or “service”, leading in turn to even more people falling under the company's thumb.

All the forms of indirect harm are magnified when the user is a public entity or a school.

Public agencies exist for the people, not for themselves. When they do computing, they do it for the people. They have a duty to maintain full control over that computing so that they can assure it is done properly for the people. (This constitutes the computational sovereignty of the state.) They must never allow control over the state's computing to fall into private hands.

To maintain control of the people's computing, public agencies must not do it with proprietary software (software under the control of an entity other than the state). And they must not entrust it to a service programmed and run by an entity other than the state, since this would be SaaSS.

Proprietary software has no security at all in one crucial case — against its developer. And the developer may help others attack. Microsoft shows Windows bugs to the NSA (the US government digital spying agency) before fixing them. We do not know whether Apple does likewise, but it is under the same government pressure as Microsoft. If the government of any other country uses such software, it endangers national security. Do you want the NSA to break into your government's computers? See our suggested policies for governments to promote free software.

Schools (and this includes all educational activities) influence the future of society through what they teach. They should teach exclusively free software, so as to use their influence for the good. To teach a proprietary program is to implant dependence, which goes against the mission of education. By training in use of free software, schools will direct society's future towards freedom, and help talented programmers master the craft.

They will also teach students the habit of cooperating, helping other people. Each class should have this rule: “Students, this class is a place where we share our knowledge. If you bring software to class, you may not keep it for yourself. Rather, you must share copies with the rest of the class—including the program's source code, in case someone else wants to learn. Therefore, bringing proprietary software to class is not permitted except to reverse engineer it.”

Proprietary developers would have us punish students who are good enough at heart to share software and thwart those curious enough to want to change it. This means a bad education. See http://www.gnu.org/education/ for more discussion of the use of free software in schools.

I'm often asked to describe the “advantages” of free software. But the word “advantages” is too weak when it comes to freedom. Life without freedom is oppression, and that applies to computing as well as every other activity in our lives. We must refuse to give the developers of the programs or computing services control over the computing we do. This is the right thing to do, for selfish reasons; but not solely for selfish reasons.

Freedom includes the freedom to cooperate with others. Denying people that freedom means keeping them divided, which is the start of a scheme to oppress them. In the free software community, we are very much aware of the importance of the freedom to cooperate because our work consists of organized cooperation. If your friend comes to visit and sees you use a program, she might ask for a copy. A program which stops you from redistributing it, or says you're “not supposed to”, is antisocial.

In computing, cooperation includes redistributing exact copies of a program to other users. It also includes distributing your changed versions to them. Free software encourages these forms of cooperation, while proprietary software forbids them. It forbids redistribution of copies, and by denying users the source code, it blocks them from making changes. SaaSS has the same effects: if your computing is done over the web in someone else's server, by someone else's copy of a program, you can't see it or touch the software that does your computing, so you can't redistribute it or change it.

We deserve to have control of our own computing; how can we win this control? By rejecting nonfree software on the computers we own or regularly use, and rejecting SaaSS. By developing free software (for those of us who are programmers.) By refusing to develop or promote nonfree software or SaaSS. By spreading these ideas to others.

We and thousands of users have done this since 1984, which is how we now have the free GNU/Linux operating system that anyone—programmer or not—can use. Join our cause, as a programmer or an activist. Let's make all computer users free.



>Is there any other botnet on Xubuntu I should be aware of

Xubuntu provides specific repositories of nonfree software, and Canonical expressly promotes and recommends nonfree software under the Xubuntu name in some of their distribution channels. Xubuntu offers the option to install only free packages, which means it also offers the option to install nonfree packages too. In addition, the version of Linux, the kernel, included in Xubuntu contains firmware blobs.

The “Ubuntu Software Center” lists proprietary programs and free programs jumbled together. It is hard to tell which ones are free since proprietary programs for download at no charge are labelled “free”.

Xubuntu appears to permit commercial redistribution of exact copies with the trademarks; removal of the trademarks is required only for modified versions. That is an acceptable policy for trademarks. The same page, further down, makes a vague and ominous statement about “Ubuntu patents,” without giving enough details to show whether that constitutes aggression or not.

That page spreads confusion by using the misleading term “intellectual property rights”, which falsely presumes that trademark law and patent law and several other laws belong in one single conceptual framework. Use of that term is harmful, without exception, so after making a reference to someone else's use of the term, we should always reject it. However, that is not a substantive issue about Xubuntu as a GNU/Linux distribution.

Instead of this nonfree distribution, use one of the free distros which are made from it: Dyne:bolic, Trisquel, and Ututo S.




The "Error reporting" program that phones home to canonical every time the computer doesn't shut down right. I am asking for anything in Xubuntu that also uses networking without the consent of the user. i.e. not the things listed in >>1016558, excepting maybe the DNS resolving for systemDicks.


Thank you for reciting the passages of the great Stallman. Unfortunately, targeting all non-free software is not something I am concerned with for the moment. I see no reason to be concerned about non-free software if it doesn't phone home.



There's the service which fetches current time from the internet and the connectivity check service. Obviously, without the first one it will be impossible to auto-set PC time so you'll have to do so manually. As for the second it just informs your computer if it's properly connected so disabling it will permanently show the "connecting" icon on your network icon and I'm not sure if it will cause any other errors. I'm not sure how to disable the latter without blocking their IP in your router or hosts.

Just close any of your apps that use network and run Wireshark, connect to the internet and wait for a few minutes to see what connections are being made.


Okay so I'm trying to follow the Artix install guide, except all their listed commands are for OpenRC and I'm using runit. I managed to get to installing networkmanager, but the next command is

rc-update add NetworkManager default

When I run that, it says "command not found", so I assume this is an OpenRC-specific command, and I don't know enough about runit to know the equivalent command. What is it?

Try and see if it persists on a fresh profile

To see simply:

1) goto C:\Users\"UserName"\AppData\Roaming\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles

2) rename the "profiles.ini" to something else

3) run palemoon and you should then have a clean profile

Simply rename the old prorfiles.ini back to profiles.ini and you'll get your old profile back.

Security/Privacy. The idea is to have a modem that is both compatible with FOSS firmware and, depending on ISP policies, possibly spoof the hardware of the modem through virtual means to something the ISP accepts. That much should have been obvious.

The reason why I'm approaching this from a more general angle is the simple fact that I'm not sure whether or not I'm going to have to move anytime soon, meaning I'm not sure if I'm even going to have the same ISP with the same policies.

If you don't need it, don't install it. I've had a couple of Linux installs where ALSA was finnicky for whatever reason, and installing Pulseaudio just werked. That was the case on Slackware. I wasted hours fiddling around with aplay and alsa.conf trying to get sound before I finally broke down and installed PA. I'm on Arch now, and for my simple needs (playing audio files, and video files with sound), ALSA worked out of the box, so I haven't bothered with PA or JACK.

How the fuck does this even occur? What the hell does the ethernet have to do with Wi-Fi?

Things I have tried:

- netsh winsocks reset+int ip reset, ipconfig /release /flushdns /renew. /renew fails with 'unable to contact your DHCP server'.

- Using the 'Network reset' function in the Settings menu.

I think I've tried more, but I can't remember at this point.

I am not certain, but I think that the wifi is broken as a result of something from https://hackernoon.com/the-2017-pentester-guide-to-windows-10-privacy-security-cf734c510b8d?gi=638ec2adb17d (I didn't follow the 'Turn off Networking Capabilities' section)>

Is usb tethering your proxy connection via fdroid vpn hotspot legit opsec?



I use old PCs with SATA SSDs and a newer one with an NVMe M.2 SSD (which btw some M.2 SSDs are still SATA and are thus slow even with M.2), but if you're trying to use an NVMe M.2 drive on an older motherboard that doesn't have an onboard M.2 slot, the UEFI/BIOS might not actually support NVME M.2 drives, at least not without a firmware update, and maybe not at all

or even if it does support them, it might not be able to boot from them

really depends on your mobo, but support is flaky for older boards (I assume that's why you're using it instead of an onboard slot)


Where can i find a search engine that isn't google and censored to hell and back?

>Does that mean that plain old ASCII is dead if even Slackware switched away from it?

utf-8 uses ascii, so no.



But it's not "plain old ASCII", but an extension of ASCII.



>SATA will be declared obsolete and disappear from consumer boards

>consumer storage reduced to PCIe/M2 SSDs and "cloud"

>future HDDs only usable with expensive server boards and HBAs



Yes. Consumers won't be directly prohibited from purchasing large HDD-based storage at some point as some anons had envisioned. Much rather, consumer platforms will stop supporting HDDs, and hardware which will still support them will be too obscure and/or expensive for mainstream use.



are those ticks or what the fuck


Best tools for testing storage and LAN throughput/performance?



Probably some sort of fungal infection or something similar.



Those uninterested in purchasing a SAS controller in a few years from now won't be interested in HDDs to begin with.

Back in the 90s you had to shell out money for SCSI storage as IDE stuff was shit.

Do they blacklist certain IPs or regions now? (I'm on a new IP since creating the first account because dynamic, but that shouldn't change anything right?)

All that sounds retarded. A screenshot tool shouldn't have 50 different jobs. You have a very simple way of making qr on Linux and you can add a shortcut to it to the right click menu with ease. Same goes with hashsum.

So I assume your method is:

>then go to sadpanda

Try clearing your browser cookies and such and try again if you didn't. Also I have heard there's some restrictions on accounts based on age and other such stuff, at least I've seen galleries some people can view but not all.

there's software that lets you control multiple computers with a single mouse and keyboard, but it's a potential security risk because it's basically remote access software, similar to RDP/VNC/SSH but more geared towards inputs rather than screen sharing and terminals

I have two different laptops here, both running the same version of Antergos and the same browser (Palemoon) both with only the ublock origin addon. They both have a 1920x1080 display. For some reason though webpages look different on both of them. One seems to be more 'zoomed in' than the other and actually makes use of the whole width of the screen as well as having a larger default player on youtube, whereas the other does not.

Zooming in or out with ctrl-scroll does not really help here as zooming in makes everything around it larger while the player stays pretty much the same. Also there are always large areas of empty space left on either side of the screen. What else could be causing this?



DPI autodetection fuckery. You'll have to manually specify it somewhere.



Hmmm, they're both 15.6'' screens but that does sound like some typical kind of shit that would mess things up. I'll have a look, thanks for the suggestion.

general question; I have just switched over to Ubuntu from Win 7, and in my haste for the shiny new OS, I forgot all my music is on an encrypted harddrive I can't access anymore. What's the easiest way to recover the data? or how in the fuck to I find a bootable win7 ISO so mount it and try that way?

Thanks in advance.



How is it encrypted?



Oh wow. I'm so used to seeing people fuck up one way, but you fucked up in reverse. True/VeraCrypt work on Linux. Did you encrypt with Bitlocker?



yes, i did.



If your harddrive is an external one, you could potentially setup a win7 VM and just execute

Disable-BitLocker -MountPoint "<drive_letter>:"

Alternatively (if you have the recovery keys) you can boot a win7 Ultimate installation iso and do

manage-bde -unlock D: -RecoveryKey "<key_file>"

I found all of this information by a search engine. No guarantee that they'll work.



...or you could just

 apt install libbde-utils
bdemount -p <password> /dev/sdX



found a win7 ISO and am currently downloading. Funny part is, I even know the actual password, plus I have the recovery key; I just need windows to get at it.(Or a Linux encryption cracker). I'll let you all know how it goes tomorrow (and by how it goes I mean I'll have more questions and be frustrated).

Thanks guys

Is there some sort of Linux GUI similar to CRU for Windows or SwitchRes for Mac to reliably create and use custom display modes? I have a CRT monitor I can easily get working in higher refresh rates and different resolutions under other OSs, but under Linux, it absolutely refuses to go above 85Hz or use anything other than a handful of preset resolutions.

In Linux, the closest I can find are (invariably vague, outdated, and contradictory) instructions revolving around xmodeline, editing xorg.conf, and tools such as xrandr or gtf:


But the most I've been able to accomplish is to temporarily switch to a single new mode, which I've been unable to make Linux remember between reboots, let alone create multiple new modes or even lift the 85Hz cap for preexisting resolutions. On top of this, since I have two monitors (the other an LCD) this often seems to confuse the software, ruining my multi-monitor arrangement.

A GUI would be ideal, but even a set of up-to-date CLI instructions verified to work would be acceptable.


For photovoltaic? The main bottleneck to energy output is their efficiency, varying from 3% since the 1980s, to a maximum of 46% for today's best laboratory cells, with most commercial systems hovering around 10%-20%. So far as practicality, from a commercial standpoint, the main limit is price per square foot. Your comment about the brightness of the sun is particularly relevant, since (much like concentrated thermal solar) it's often most price-efficient to couple smaller areas of PV panels with larger areas of optical concentration devices such as mirrors and lenses, especially since most types of PV panels are more efficient under brighter light.

From a technical practicality standpoint, PV panels function similarly to battery packs or any other DC device, since they require some kind of controller and regulator hardware for any but the simplest of applications.


Warranty is typically 25 years, though most panels should continue working for 40 years (like any other semiconductor device) at reduced efficiency, usually around 2/3rds of original efficiency by the 4th decade.


Nearly no tablets have cellular modems, and in order for one to function, you would have to make arrangements with your TelCo to add its modem to your contract. Many tablets (mostly cellphone-derived units like the iPad) do, however, have GPS, though whether or not they log such information varies widely, as opposed to cellular modems which are required to log towers for the baseband chip to function.

So we're still way back in terms of efficiency? That's actually somewhat of a relief because I thought the technology was just obsolete shit being pushed because eco-friendly stuff.

One last question, what determines(or rather improves) the efficiency of a cell? Higher doping of the device? Larger junction? Different materials?


Ignore --- this --- message.






Thank you for the response, Satan. I am an idiot and neglected to mention these LANs are about 2 miles apart so can't connect ethernet cables between them. So its DEVICE1<--LAN1<--Internet-->LAN2-->DEVICE1&2. Device 1 & 2 need to reach Device 1 and I currently have one connection using port forwarding, but if I have both devices forwarding packets Device1LAN1 can't differentiate between the devices because I guess it uses IPs to determine which device is which and assigns them a unique registration.

If you have any other tips for this I will forever appreciate you. My current solution is just to get another modem/gateway and another connection from the cable company.

All of those, as well as optical bandgap for different frequencies of light, which require multiple layered junctions to fully exploit, though multi-junction cells are usually too expensive to use without concentration. Efficiency (much like batteries, fuel cells, and other electronic devices) has been steadily increasing over the decades at a rate of about 0.4% points per year. Of course, arguably the most important measure of efficiency is ERoEI (Energy Returned on Energy Invested), typically given for PV solar as the time needed to "pay back" the resources expended creating them and start generating a profit, which used to be about 10 years in the 1990s but is now as little as 9 months.

For the ERoEI reason, I myself (at least for grid-scale deployments) politically advocate the use of more primitive concentrated thermal rather than PV, until such time as PV becomes more sustainable.


Any normal router will forward multiple port numbers to multiple distinct static LAN IPs. In fact, I've never run across a router so primitive it can only forward to a single static IP on its LAN, so make sure to check your router's manual to confirm whether or not it's really incapable of this.

What you want to do on each end is configure each location's router to forward DIFFERENT PORTS NUMBERS to particular machines, each given their own static LAN IP, and configure whatever software you use between any two machines in either location to use distinct port numbers.

If, as you originally stated, one or both locations' router(s) actually are too primitive to port forward to multiple static IPs, and there is some reason these routers can't be replaced with better ones, that's where the "double router" configuration I suggested will have to come in. By giving the WAN-facing router's single statically forwarded IP to another more sophisticated router inside its LAN, you will be able to bypass its limitations. Note that this better router may be a dedicated router, or it may simply be a PC with multiple LAN interfaces running a software router.

Finally, if you're a turbopleb and all this is waaaay too overwhelming for you, and the router(s) in question are the ones your ISP(s) gave you, call up their tech support and they'll probably be glad to assist. If for some strange reason you don't want to use port forwarding, instead of a second gateway and cable drop, you can simply order more external static IPs for one or both locations.



Forgot to add: If you can't replace your current router, but you can alter its settings, switching it into passive bridge mode (disabling its routing functions) and passing all routing duties for the entire network to a better router would be simpler than the double router configuration.

You have SP3 on it? Anything older than SP2 is kind of a pain in the ass to operate the internet with. I had no problem with this kind of thing, I just set it to automatically find an internet connection and it works. Maybe you messed something up with the drivers.



I don't know honestly, as you can see it's a heavily modified version of XP Professional (I kinda knew the guy who made it though), I might try getting the service packs for it.

I also don't know how will I fix the drivers, since it's not a PCI network card but what's integrated in the motherboard and that I found it in the trash I've got no documentation or drivers coming with it. I successfully made an USB wifi adapter shit work with it, and same results. There's connection to outside of my LAN. I wouldn't worry if this happened only to XP, but the same results happen with any other fresh new live Linux distro.



>since it's not a PCI network card but what's integrated in the motherboard and that I found it in the trash I've got no documentation or drivers coming with it

Probably talking out of my ass since I have no memorable documentation on Windows XP anymore, but getting the network adapter to work doesn't need specific software much of the time. Right now I have a Win7 installation and have a thing called "Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller", and am pretty sure I had the same type of software installed on a previous motherboard (with XP) with no sweating over network adapter specifics. No documents or drivers coming my path either. Try grabbing a generic driver for your adapter and see how that works out. Make a System Restore copy just in case.

>There's connection to outside of my LAN

You mean no connection outside of the LAN? Maybe you mean that it shows "Local Area Connection" when you see the adapters' names on your PC, but it can be connected to the internet without any problem if you do the right things nevertheless.

Simpler solution that works sometimes: When right clicking your internet connection icon on the bottom right (or from your adapter list window), you see 2-3 options: one of them is status, and one of them isrepair or sth. Click it once, see what it does. Saved me a few times.

It's a thin wall with marginal sound isolation, I can hear her television at night but even worse her birds chirping. There's little space to work with but I want to dampen the noise and regain some privacy. My parents own the apartment so a permanent solution is preferable.

Do these sound dampening paints work sufficiently for my case? I assume not since they're most effective around 500Hz, while the birds chirps are well above 1kHz.

There's also these panels that are quite thin. Are they effective?

Hello /tech/, I'm reporting from a country with overly restricted internet. My long endeavor of connecting to Tor via bridges I got from BridgeDB has proven unsuccessful for more than a couple dozen tries now that I felt the need to consult this place for some advice. Here are some things I've observed so far:

When I try to connect to hidden bridges, Tor controller receives some duplicated ACK packets (according to Wireshark) that has been marked with TCP analysis flags. Those packets are then followed by the silence of death.

Built in obfs4 and meek bridges still work, and those are not susceptible to the aforementioned duplicate ACK packets or TCP analysis. It's possible to build a Tor circuit via these bridges and connect to the internet.

So my question is this: Could my ISP (more likely the NSA equivalent in my country) be intentionally allowing connections made to known built-in Tor bridges to pinpoint potential targets? If that's the case, what can I do to evade the filters that blocks out hidden obfs4 bridges?



There are a number of approaches, the simplest is probably to free up enough space on your old drive to fit its contents on the newer one (I'd recommend under 90GB of total data), shrink the biggest partition, and then clone the entire drive. The latter two steps should be performed while booted off a separate device such as a USB flash drive or optical disc, running something such as:

I got a magnet file to use on Gnutella. I entered the magnet file in the search query, and I have been waiting for over a day now for the file to start downloading, but it has never happened. The status of the file is "No sources; 62 DHT lookups". Does this mean that I'll never be able to download this file through Gnutella?

From what I understand, since this is an obscure file, I have to wait for the guy who has the book on his computer to get on Gnutella for the sharing to happen. Had it been a more popular file, other people would have it, and the wait time for someone who has it to come online would be much shorter. But as long as only 1 person has the file, and that person isn't on Gnutella at the time of me being on it, I'll never get it. Am I correct?

I can just download the file from somewhere else. I just thought of using Gnutella as a means of reducing throughput usage on libgen. This isn't a big deal to me then, I'm just curious as to how Gnutella works as a distributed P2P network.


So is there any cipher combination I can use with dm-crypt that would make the government unable to read my data, or is it a lost cause? Asking for a friend.



Why does

>your friend

believe that the defaults are inadequate? Does he believe that the government (which one?) has some effective cryptanalysis of AES? Typical dm-crypt/LUKS defaults are aes-xts-plain64 with a 256 bit key (which actually means AES-128 in effect, because apparently XTS mode splits the key in half), with SHA-256 LUKS header hashing and pbkdf2 as the LUKS PBKDF. You could use a 512 bit key instead which would make it AES-256 instead of AES-128. From what I've read, it's unlikely that your chosen cipher will be the weak point in your setup.



Government can crack any encryption via rubber-hose cryptanalysis. Your best bet is not having any data that could get you in trouble on the hardware you own.

Apologies in advance that this is brainlet-tier. I have my network set to assign IP automatically. This should be dynamic, right?

The posts made at home are not. I don't like leaving posting histories that long tied together. I changed to static and changed my IPv4. Still everything went under the same IP hash. So when 8chan hashes an IP what is it using? I left my default gateway, DNS, and subnet mask the same so it either has something to do with that, or it is router side. CMD confirms my IPv4 is changed so I didn't bungle that up. Posts going clear back to September are matched to the same hash as posts made today.

I understand the port forwarding part of it and the DSL gateway provided by ISP is capable of that. The issue is Device1 only has one port it's capable of receiving packets on and that's been verified with the manufacturer. So I can't forward all traffic from LAN2 public IP address to that port because device1 will think both devices in LAN2 are one device and it needs to know there are 2 unique devices.

I have plenty of external static IPs to use, but how can I utilize them with a D-link DSL gateway?

First, for some fucking reason, org.cups.cupsd.service won't start on its own, and I have to manually start it for it to show up in services. It is enabled, and there are symlinks to the service. I have no fucking clue what's going on.

Also, I have a custom kernel, and systemd won't stop spamming the fuck out of my TTY with "audit res=success" and other messages on boot and shutdown. Worst yet, it only does this 1 out of 3 boots (what the fuck?). I tried screwing around with auditd.conf, but nothing's working. Is it a compile option I overlooked?

I'm getting fucking sick of systemd.

Ubuntu 18.10 fucked me by being unable to see my encrypted drive and thus to boot.

I tried fixing it with a Live CD and chroot but ended up saving my home directory and reinstalling 18.04 LTS.

I had just set up Wolfram Mathematica and now it won't let me reinstall, I already filed the System Transfer Form, but I didn't receive any other key (yet?).

Would I be able to reinstall 18.10 on the same PC and be able to get it to work again?

I've been having recent instability issues (system crashes and other assorted program freezes). At first I thought them to be related to overclocking, which I have reverted since, but while garbage collecting old packages, the kernel spitted some warnings about IO errors related to bad blocks, which makes me think the culprit may be my relatively new SSD. However, running SMART checks, it appears to be working just fine, no remapped bad sectors whatsoever, so I dunno what the fuck happened.

Do you happen to know if this could be caused by a bad SATA cable or malfunctioning southbridge? I remember I had some issues at first with the SSD because I used a cable that did not fit well enough, but when I changed it, it started working better. The symptoms are similar to back then, so I think it may be related to the cable or the port (which is dangerously close to the GPU because of stupid mobo design; maybe electromagnetic interference?). Do you think it may be the cable, or should I RMA the whole SSD?

I solved all the actual problems this caused me after I realized what happened, but BIOS says I have an Intel 9560 when it's actually a Killer 1550i.

Originally, the wifi card was completely inactive and had no information in the device manager, so I checked BIOS and it said it was an Intel wireless-ac 9560, so I tried installing the drivers for that product, which worked well enough for device manager to recognize the card as actually being a Killer 1550i (but for some reason, continuing to say that the Intel drivers were the best drivers for it). Anyone know what the fuck happened?

Never thought it would happen to me, but long story short I'm lumped with Windows 10, and a bunch of the URLs I saved to download newer versions of stuff to fix the privacy issues (as best they can) and other bugbears are dead.

I've got these downloaded:

- Aegis Voat 1.18 (and with no idea how to run it)

- https://archive.is/3xrXo Supposedly fiddles with a bunch of shit via the command prompt, but for all I know it's a more complex version of "delete system 32".

- https://pastebin.com/z4a3MwUv Could just be a variation of the above, but there are a few differences.

I've gotten used to some issues, but I basically want to disable updates and do them when I want, shitcan Cortana, disable the cloud (a few drop downs won't let me disable it and go straight back to the cloud option when I select otherwise), and kill telemetry.

8.) Boot Windows from USB whenever I feel like it,

9.) All the other times I boot off the SSD that has my Linux Distro.

Is this even possible?

Why not just let a (non-retarded) bootloader just detect all your installs and tweak the default if you don't like it? GRUB literally will put Windows last by default.

You don't want multiple bootloaders on different drives; it's asking for trouble and ultimately not very convenient.

Added 2 sticks of 8GB ram to my Mobo and now my PC won't stop crashing 30 seconds in. I don't Cmos reset, tried going back to 2 sticks, changing what MHz it's on, the voltage. etc. Blue screen error loops or black screens or login screens that eventually lead to a reset. No fucking idea what to do. Exactly same ram.

AMD 2600x, Msi x470 Gaming Plus, G.Skill Ripjaw V DDR4 F4-3200C16D-16GVKB. I had my 2 8GB sticks running at 3200MHz just fine and then I inserted my 2 new sticks, I got to my desktop, checked and saw I was on 2133MHz for some reason, went to back to bios and put it at 3200MHz and that's when problems started. Out of idea's but for some reason I did notice that my wrong (non OS) hard drive was running at 100% for a few seconds before I left to go to change it in bios. Don't know if that matters but it dropped back to like some low % before I exited and I can't tell if I was long enough on my desktop the first time around to know if it would have resarted or not.

either way after that's fixed I have to figure out my password for a account I deleted and shouldn't exist but still does. it won't let me go to my main account when it doesn't crash and takes me to the log in screen for 30 seconds before it restarts again automatically.

Physically, what is it about heat and temperature that reduces the performance of a semiconductor device?

Or is it a safety feature of say CPUs/GPUs to reduce performance in order in order to reduce heat generation?

Also why is libreoffice so fucking slow on startup



You (typically) won't be able to run 4 sticks at with the same frequency and timings as 2 sticks. I was running 2x4G at 3200 and 16-16-16-16 and after adding identical 2x4G, it only begins to be stable around 3000 and still causes issues, so I have to run it at 2933.



It's both. CPUs throttle when above 80-100C because they'd die at higher temps (or break something else on the motherboard).

Temperature affects resistance/conductivity and expands volume. At a small scale even if all components somehow survive your CPU and the surrounding internals will grow by a small margin when heated over 100-200C, which may break something, plus the CPU will behave differently due to having different electrical/physical properties. CPUs are specifically tuned to work at temps of -50 to 150°C.

I looked around trying to find solutions but couldn't find anything. Plenty with the same error, but nothing useful. The file in question, libGL.so.1, does exist in a multiple places; running the command 'dpkg -S libGL.so.1 | grep ^libgl1' returns

I really don't even know where to begin with trying to resolve this.

In Synaptic I notice there is a "libgl1-nvidia-glx" package as distinct from "libgl1-glvnd-nvidia-glx", but I have no idea what the difference is or whether it has anything to do with my trouble in the first place, and marking it for install marks a bunch of other graphics-related packages for removal, which I obviously am not going to do when I'm so ignorant as to what everything does.

Though the account would be tied into the same IMEI where presumably they can suck in all of your contact number and phone numbers with the botnet as verification but you can just use a wifi connection

Since it is just a burner smartphone, you don't have to worry that much.

Or if you don't want to spend that much just get a burner SIM and use that on every botnet social media crap but they will surely be under the same metadata.

Avoid android Lollipop and above since most of these will ask for the "first registered account ever" on that phone which means resetting it will do you no good and actually lock you out.


I'm looking forward to getting a new ISP but the problem is I probably could not have access over torrents.

How do I effectively bypass CGN (Carrier-grade NAT)?

<the crap ISP use to block torrents and other P2P and port forward services.

I assume I could tunnel the connection over VPN/SSH (over a non-limited lport/rport) or SOCKS/SSL/HTTP proxy (since 443/80 and common ports have no limits) to let me use a P2P and other port forward services.

I think I probably could bypass it by using known online gaming UDP forward ports but I'd like to have more ideas.

That's a genetic filename, you need a static link to your opengl library. It should have been made for you, not sure what went wrong.



Do you have the nvidia binary blob installed?



I think so.

I mean, I can bring up nvidia-settings and it lists a driver version, gives options like OpenGL settings, and properly detects things like VRAM usage and temperatures, so I think I've got what I'm supposed to have. Synaptic shows the apparently relevant packages (nvidia-driver, nvidia-driver-libs, nvidia-kernel-common, etc) as installed, with nothing relevant-looking not yet installed that isn't an alternative or legacy.



Weird. That would pull in OpenGL.

Do you have abnormal paths set for where thrid-party libraries are installed?


What is that?

Is that your /usr/lib64 path?

You might need to reconfigure wine with that /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu path then recompile and install.

>You might need to reconfigure wine with that /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu path then recompile and install.

I guess I'll attempt it. Should I uninstall the version of wine I got through Synaptic, and if so, which packages should be removed (wine, wine-stable, libwine)?




#!/bin/env bash
getthread=$(curl $1 | grep -o https://media.8ch.net/file_store/'[0-Z]\+\.[0-Z]\{3,4\}' | sort -u)
for i in $getthread; do
if [ $i != https://media.8ch.net/file_store/thumb ]
wget $i

Note: i think there was something wrong with this script at one point but it seems to work fine when i tested it just now.

If there is any problems i think it would be with the regex i'm using, not completely sure however.



Do everytyhing your package manager. If that's synaptic, then do that.


Use `locate libGL.so.1` and find where it is at. Make a symlink in /usr/lib with `ln -s "WHATEVER LOCATE SAYS IT IS AT" /usr/lib/libGL.so.1`.


Try the symlink before using custom paths in synaptic.



I just noticed my mistake...

It doesn't effect the result however but you can remove the if statement and it'll work just the same.



locate came up with a dozen locations. First I made the symlink to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libGL.so.1, but Wine came back with

>err:wgl:init_opengl Failed to load libGL: libGL.so.1: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64

which as I understand it means it was looking for a 32-bit library and found a 64-bit. Then I tried /usr/lib/mesa-diverted/i386-linux-gnu/libGL.so.1 which was the only one in the locate results that had i386 in the path instead of x86_64.

That stopped giving the "OpenGL support is disabled" that the previous two error messages had been followed by, but it still didn't work and gave

libGL error: No matching fbConfigs or visuals found
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast
X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 154 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 3 (X_GLXCreateContext)
Value in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 168
Current serial number in output stream: 172



Some weird errors, anon.

The best I can give you is find out what "swrast" drive is and why it failed to load. Either you don't have it, have the wrong version, it's corrupted, something.

If that doesn't work, I'd remove through synaptic wine and nvidia-driver. Don't delete anything that is dependent on nvidia-driver though. Just leave them for now.

This is why linux will never be number one with desktop computers.



I forgot to add, reinstall through synaptic nvidia-driver first and pay attention to any special configuration options the packages might have for opengl or hardware acceleration. Something that is relevant.

Then go through wine doing the same and see if that works.

I completely uninstalled wine, and uninstalled and reinstalled nvidia-driver through synaptic.

Then, I installed Wine by directly following the instructions in https://wiki.debian.org/Wine#Installation_on_Debian_Jessie_and_newer

With that done, any time I ran anything with wine (even including winecfg) I got the error "err:winedevice:ServiceMain driver L"WineBus" failed to load". It doesn't seem to impact whether things run; games that previously worked on Wine despite the OpenGL issue (Fallout 1, various RPGMaker H-games) still run like they did before, but once again I get the "failed to load libGL" error stopping me from playing most things.

Interestingly, when I run winetricks it complains that I'm using a 64-bit wineprefix, but if I remake the symlink to the x86_64 libGL.so.1 again, it still gives the "wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64" error.

I should probably note that OpenGL has apparently been working normally outside Wine this whole time, since I had no difficulty playing a game with a specific Linux version (Rimworld) and its readme specifically says it can be a bit finicky with OpenGL, yet it had no issue.



>Interestingly, when I run winetricks it complains that I'm using a 64-bit wineprefix

Addendum: if I try to run something with the wine64 command instead of wine, it says "'/home/[user]/.wine' is a 32-bit installation, it cannot support 64 bit applications."


Does anyone have a recommendation for a free image management tool? I've been trying to organized my reply images using folders, but there are so many that fit into multiple categories it's impossible. I don't need anything super advanced. I just need to be able to tag my images and search by tag. If it has some sort of image recognition so I can weed out duplicates that would be great, but it is not necessary at all for it to do that.




Try looking through winecfg and see if there is anything that you need to change.

Not sure much else beyond that.

trying to learn bash and ive come across some confusion.

specifically local variables in a recursive function.

from what i've read on

https://www.gnu.org/software/bash/manual/html_node/Shell-Functions.html#Shell-Functions (at the bottom half)

local variables shadow global ones of the same name, and when a function (with a local variable shadowing a global) completes the global variable takes back it's original value


when i set FUNCNEST=500 (forcing a function to exit at 500 recusions)

then create a function as follows;

function countup { local number=$((number+1)); echo $number;countup; }

and set number=0

when i run the function countup, everything works as expected, recursing until $FUNCNEST is met, printing the numbers 1-500.

however if i run it again, it counts from 500-1000. as if the local $number was global. It's my understanding that shouldn't happen, the local should shadow the global declaration and revert to number=0 after the function exits. the function should run the same each time, printing numbers from 1-500

I feel like either i'm missing something obvious, or that when FUNCNEST is reached, something unexpected happens.

Pls help



It's been like that for nearly a year


I've been trying to pipe audio from the speaker output into the microphone input. Like a fucktard, I simply used a cable between them. Now any sound I'm playing through this computer comes out distorted, with certain frequencies quieter than they should be. From a cursory googling of the problem, I think I might have damaged the sound card. How do I confirm this? The sound remained distorted through a speaker system and my headphones, although less so in the speakers, likely due to different frequency response curve.


I have a relatively strange monitor setup question.

I have a nvidia card and the integrated intel graphics thing. I'm trying to use them at the same time for a gpu passthrough setup (integrated on one monitor, nvidia on the other). I have managed to get them both running at the same time, but only if the default display output setting in the bios is set to the nvidia card. if I change that to the integrated graphics port, I see the desktop just fine on that monitor, but X/xrandr for some reason don't register the nvidia card.

I'm using the same xorg.conf file for both bios config cases. the only difference is that bios setting.

xorg prints

[    12.033] (EE) Failed to initialize GLX extension (Compatible NVIDIA X driver not found)
but the drivers seem loaded
# lsmod | grep -i nvidia
nvidia_drm 45056 0
drm_kms_helper 155648 2 i915,nvidia_drm
drm 360448 5 i915,nvidia_drm,drm_kms_helper
nvidia_modeset 860160 1 nvidia_drm
nvidia 13160448 4 nvidia_modeset

what am I missing? why does changing the default display output from the bios make X not load the nvidia drevers?



so when the bios is set to use integrated graphics and if I add the nvidia BusID to xorg.conf, then X uses ONLY the nvidia card output and not the integrated one. adding the BusID of the intel one does not help to turn it on

here's the full xorg.conf:

Trying to use wget to for easy archival of a board, and I am trying to figure what command to use specifically. I want to start at the board catalog and download it and the contents of each thread in the board.

So far I've got:

wget -r -p -E -k --wait=20 --limit-rate=20k URL

This should retrieve everything and make a pretty usable backup of the site, correct?

What should I set my recursion to? I just want the catalog, and the threads in the catalog. I don't want any higher domains on 8chan, and I don't want to pull any external websites linked in the threads. I imagine I'll end up pulling some external sites linked in the catalog, but I don't think that can be helped. Would I add -r --level=1 or would it be --level=2? Are the retrieval and rate limits necessary, or am I overestimating the amount of traffic this program generates?



If you use --no-parent it should restrict you to one board. --level=2 looks like it hits up the archive

If you are actually noticing a difference you probably did break it, but you'd need another one of the same cards to compare with to know for sure. Now, I'm actually curious. Unless it went through an amplifier or something is it actually a bad idea to use a loopback cable like that? But no you definitely should've been using software for that. Pulseaudio and JACK can do routing and mixing and such.




Your wine prefix isn't 64 bit. If you want a 64 bit wine prefix you need to set the WINEARCH variable to win64. If I recall you can convert 32 bit wineprefixes to 64 bit but not back, it's supposed to be a new feature, but I haven't tested it. Try initializing your prefix in 64 bit and then try doing what you were doing, assuming you wanted a 64 bit prefix to begin with.

Can testdisk damage existing partitions during recovery of another, deleted partition?

Basically what happened, I fucked up during partitioning under Linux, I am dualbooting PCLinuxOS with Windows. I had three partitions on my 4gb HGST HDD and wanted to merge them into two, and while I managed to expand one, the windows partition was fully deleted. Right now half of the plate is empty while the other half has an ext4. Now I want to run testdisk to try and recover the windows data but I am worried about the other partition, because that one is really important to me and I wouldnt want to lose that. I wanted to make a backup but I cant find my SATA-USB set and I dont want to buy one again, so now I am kinda afraid of running testdisk in case something fucks up again.

btw this happened almost a month ago because I am a procrastinating ADD faggot.



You did, but you're asking the wrong question. Web browsers are a dreadful tool for what you're trying to do. If you specify why it needs to be through a web browser interface, you may get better answers as such tools do exist but they each have their particular niches and uses.


In theory, won't write anything you don't ask it to. However, regardless of what it should do, it's insane to risk any mutations on a hard disk containing anything unique and valuable, especially files not indexed by any FS. Either your data is worth more than 20 dollars and you'll buy an interface to back it up before touching it or your data is worth less than 20 dollars and you'll accept any outcome. And make backups.



Why don't you back up your shit like you should have done in the first place before doing anything?

Unless you're learning Java or you use a program written in Java, you can remove it. That Adobe shit was dead 10 years ago.




Briefly looking into it, it seems it offers an extreme malware/virus purge, and removes telemetry.

Not being 100% sure what it is, plus the long run-time scares me off using it a tad. Removing telemetry is great, but if I can't disable windows updates, am I going to have to re-run this program each time one comes back?

Despite that it sounds very useful, and I may use it on my ailing older laptop and my new Win 10 system after a few years.

>I was already aware of the conventional wisdom that you should store Li Ion batteries at 40% charge if they're seeing little use/going into storage. However I just came across other advice that states that when stored they should have a voltage of 2V/cell minimum. In the case of my battery though that's going to be well above 40% charge. Can anyone explain (or chuck a link at me) to demystify this?

Not all batteries are made the same. For instance, Samsung batteries typically among laptops have hidden reserved cells so they never go below 20% and a little wear level wouldn't affect the rated performance after a year of use.



>buy new or old hdd

>back up important files

>repair the bad hdd

or if testdisk manages to access windows partition with deep scan you can just recover them and put into another hdd.

either way you'll need another hdd to do this feat.

>expand partitions

this is what you should never do while on linux partition manager and keep in mind you can't expand the first partition if another partition succeeds it though you can do that if there is an unformatted space to the right.

if the drive also has bad sectors then it is a terrible idea to do that since the bad sectors are replaced with the reserved sectors for the mean time. if there is really bad sectors then you should avoid reformatting the partitions.



you also probably lost data either due to hardware damage or the ntfs partition corrupted.



Why would you do that in the first place? You just short circuited it by connecting two separate stuffs together much like how house fires happen when electronics melted from overheat or the two poles of the wires touched together due to peeled wires. Most electronics would fail to function after shorting the voltage and even let out the "magic smoke" or worst case scenario is your mobo is either beyond repair or has to be repaired with a guy who has its schematics.

Since voltage also comes out from both audio jack to power the audio driver and microphone and shorting it together is bad much like putting both ends of a male to male USB without a "special chip for protection" on a single computer.

"hdajackretask" from alsa-tools is what you're looking for and I've tried to use it though it didn't work.

Just use AutoKMS. No need to spend money to M$ when you can just get it for free, legally by their own methods.



Onedrive is similar to Skydrive. It's the same and is a spyware that will sync your My Photos without you knowing about it in the first place. It also syncs everything from known devices on home network, wifi password/keys, bitlocker decryption keys and password since they made it so that everything can synchronize at another windows device after a login so no need to set everything up (same goes to glowers)




no service pack 7 works fine for anything.

Your problem would be getting dotnet without the botnet (see the pun) so you should already have the offline and outdated version of dotnet 4.5 4.0 etc.

8 is better than 7 in terms of graphics since they replaced the old stack and you can literally switch back from fullscreen game to your desktop without the annoying delay that sometimes even crashes on 7 if you switch back and forth very fast. They also removed that annoying aero theme plus you'll have the best task manager out there with 8 and above.

The only problem with 8 is upgrades to 8.1 or 10 will break it (usually bluetooth, network, no access to control panel or modern apps) but it is very functional without upgrading.

10 is much worse than mac OS and it is literally giving you the ads and all the telemetry at the highest maximum but it's probably a requirement to (((some))) modern motherboards, cpu or maybe dx12 to use it. Start menu is back with ads though you could just use classic shell on 8.1 and it is much better and no annoying ads and it doesn't even force you to buy krita that is literally free. I don't know if you can side-load exe files with windows 10 but if not then you should avoid it. There's really no benefit I think for using w10 aside from dx12 but not a problem if you don't play games.

You can disable all of that shit with a simple exe called DisableWin10Tracking. Takes 10 seconds. Even easier is to just install LTSB version so it's not there in the first place.

There was never a ban on external exe files (side load, jfc go back to the iPhone reddit) unless you went to Settings and manually turned on a security setting that only allowed applications from the MS store to be allowed to launch.

Krita is also free, and the MS store version is just a donation by all accounts. It says as much in the store description.

Still a shit OS.

I don't think there is an easy way to disable Onedrive if it is built into the OS. I had Skydrive and free cloud bundled to my device though I don't remember the details on how I removed it from my OS probably through registry and windows shell.



Them selling binaries of something that they have made the source already publicly accessable is perfectly fine and doesn't violate any freedoms.



>Mega is probably okay but keep in mind it is not NZ and no longer owned by kimdotcom but is owned by a chink now.

It appears that is old news:

>In July 2015, Dotcom said he does not trust Mega service in a Q&A session with tech website Slashdot, claims the company had "suffered from a hostile takeover by a Chinese investor who is wanted in China for fraud" and that the New Zealand government seized this investor's shares and now has control of the site. Dotcom encouraged readers not to use it and that he plans to set up a completely open source nonprofit competitor. Dotcom announced on his Twitter account that he plans to release a detailed breakdown of Mega's status. Mega responded that the authorities have not opposed or interfered with any of Mega’s operations.

So, is the New Zealand government trustworthy?

For some reason, nothing I do in Linux writes an iso to a usb drive and have it be bootable. Not unetbootin, not dd, not any other shitty program. Whenever I try to write to a flash drive, its not bootable, especially if its a windows iso. Any suggestions on how to get something working?



for linux theres this program that claims to create bootable windows usb, but I've never gotten it to work. I just use rufus through another pc. its called winusb, but its not being developed anymore. there's this alternative, but I forgot the name.

As for not working bootable usb, there are some common pitfalls. A: check your drive formatting B: check whether its the right partition you are writing to: /dev/sda /dev/sda1 etc. C: check if the pc you want to boot linux from supports legacy boot, since all new pcs now are uefi. idk what distro's have uefi support, but I cant remember any, besides debian (don't take my word for it tho). As to your message, I think C might be the problem with your linux distro issues. So get into uefi and switch on legacy boot.

Excuse me, I mean DOWNSIDE



>Yeah sure totally legal

Who cares?



sometimes it depends on the hardware you are booting on

beyond that, you might be fucking up the write in basic ways, like not letting it sync before the write is written, or maybe your usb drive is fucked... the other poster detailed some other reasons.

try some iso made to be universal and for linux noobs like kali and see if you can get that to boot with the same usb drive

How does this work, and how to get around it?



Etcher should work. If you're writing a windows ISO you need winusb.

Alternatively, just use EtchDroid on android.



The image itself must be bootable by USB. If it's going to Mac hardware, the image needs to be specially prepared for that too. A Windows 7 ISO needs something like rufus to make it bootable by USB.

When starting mutt under a torsocks shell, it says "Mutt_Dotlock: Operation Not Permitted". It then disallows me from changing any mail, that is marking it read or deleted. I can read the mail though. What is happening? I don't know if this is a true permissions error, if torsocks is broken, or what.


I can't find a porn board active and relevant enough, so I think this could work here.

What's the fastest way to mass download images from places like e-hentai? If you sign up for an account you have to vote and upload before you can download the whole .zip or torrent.



>If you sign up for an account you have to vote and upload before you can download the whole .zip or torrent.

What? I could get their torrents for years before I ever did anything but read and download.

I use https://github.com/ccloli/E-Hentai-Downloader for galleries without active torrents though.

why do some many camera manufacturers market the screens as such

>3.0 inch LCD with 920,000 dots

why don't they just give out the resolution?



Because the dots are the pixel count, and that's more relevant to photographers than resolution. 920K dots is actually a low resolution, less than a Megapixel which is 1 million pixels (dots)

Need a music player app for Android that can fetch metadata for my songs similar to how Plex does, any suggestions?




if anyone gives a shit, I solved it. for some reason the "ServerLayout" and "Monitor" blocks in xorg.conf didn't play well together when iGFX was the default screen output. I just removed them from xorg.conf and shoved a xrandr line somewhere in the xsession config to apply the layout I want after login.

I can't wait for wayland to become the default

>gethostbyname failed for lappy

I never heard of that setup but

gethostbyname failed for lappy
looks like some kind of dns error. maybe you're missing a entry in the hosts file or something. also:


that's my laptops hostname also. good pick



The issue obviously goes outside of this, since the same error comes up non-socks yet still completes succesfully



no idea then, sorry.

just out of curiosity, the keyord "lappy" in this case is what? an ehlo? destination host for the mail or what?



Lappy is simpily my hostname for the laptop, and due to other clients, I have made it the pseudo-domain lappy.thinkpad


What good is LineageOS when they ship outdated kernel versions?

mako (LG Nexus 4): 3.4.113, EoL

mido (Xiaomi Redmi Note 4): 3.18.71, EoL



LineageOS is a meme, if you want a phone that has no NSA in it then just buy yourself Librem 5



I actually asked what you're doing to produce this error but I just now see that you already stated it. I really need some sleep. I'll shut up now.


watz "Secure Boot" in bios?

I've got an old harddrive with windows 7 on it and and I want to dualboot it alongside my gentoo install on my current harddrive. Grub currently doesn't detect windows 7 on my second drive, I'm guessing that's because there's no MBR because grub is my only bootloader? It's been years since I've fucked with dualbooting, and usually I'm going from Windows to Linux and not the other way around. I'm still searching around but any tips would be appreciated.



update grub with update-grub, see if that works



gentoo doesn't have this but you can just generate the config all the same with grub-mkconfig -o <path_to_your_grub.cfg>




Thanks, I'll give it a shot. Almost seems too easy.


Let's say i have a modest pc and i want to attempt virtualization cause just using wine isn't working for me anymore.

Is there a way to run qemu without needing to pass it a dedicated gpu? how well does it compare to other hypervisors like VMware?

Is there a way to run VMware with libressl instead of it's baked in openssl library deps?

I'd rather run qemu (cause libre) but if it'll run with shitty performance on a single gpu pc then i won't bother.

VMware looks interesting but attempts to install it always pulls in openssl which conflicts with the native libressl i have on my system.



how is it that your running gentoo and you don't know how to generate a grub config?



>Is there a way to run qemu without needing to pass it a dedicated gpu?

sure, but that's just a regular vm then. you can play games that don't need any graphics drivers/cards, but I don't know about the rest

>Is there a way to run VMware with libressl instead of it's baked in openssl library deps?

why do you give a shit about openssl on your hypervizor?



I'd do with one that gets its security vulns patched.

I realize that most Android holes are not in the kernels, but still.

What exactly hinders adoption of newer kernels?



>why do you give a shit about openssl on your hypervizor?

because it conflicts with libressl on my whole system.

I don't honestly give a shit about openssl but just it's presence gives my entire configuration a heart attack.

This is because openssl and libressl is slotted and as such they both take up the same slot, if i have openssl in that slot i can't have libressl and pretty much everything on my system is running libressl, so i can't do that.



I did a bit more research and i found a work around.




>because it conflicts with libressl on my whole system

I had no idea that was a install requirement. just go with qemu/kvm, there's no need for that shit. if you're only using it for local vms, you should be fine

I actually just installed the libvirt packages myself



I know how to generate a grub config. grub mkconfig wasn't detecting my windows partition so I assumed there's some extra shit I have to do. Also I've got UEFI and 'm not used to that, so there might be more issues there. Like I said, it's been awhile since I messed with this stuff.
