I don't normally play games, but I just wanted to spend the rest of my afternoon playing Half-Life 2 in Russian on Linux. How hard is that? I mean I'm launching it from steam. Oh wait, the music doesn't fucking work, like it hasn't for the past FUCKING $$\color{red}{YEAR AND MORE}$$. I can actually play the game but I really want the music so this is the time I really try to eliminate the sound problem, so I go and verify the integrity of the game files and what do you know 1154 files failed to validate. Sweet, now after waiting for it to finished downloading, I get the error that the update is corrupted. I don't know how to get rid of this error. I have deleted the folder that contains Half-Life 2, I have restarted steam, I deleted the 220 folder in the downloading folder in the steam library for Linux, logged out of steam, uninstalled Half-Life 2. It doesn't work. Sometimes I get the error that the whitelist.cfg is corrupted. I deleted that and the download is still corrupted. I don't know what a healthy whitelist.cfg looks like. Please can someone help. I just want to decompress and play Russian Half-Life 2.

I have a bunch of multipart files that are the the .001/.002 etc format, problem is for some reason the first file is .000.

If I try to extract that .000 file it doesn't work (7zip/hjsplit/bunch of other program),

if I extract the .001 I get a truncated file.

And if I increment the part number on each part by 1 and I then extract the .001 it works fine.

Is there either a program that will deal by default with the .000 file or is there a way to make changing the extension of several hundred files not an absolute pain in the ass?

Yesterday, I was able to get few programs going, downloaded music, and set a few games to download overnight. This morning I found that everything had installed correctly. I then went to the official site of my graphics card and started to download a driver, then my computer froze.

At that point I could get to the desktop but running a program would cause it to freeze. I changed my power settings in windows to give more power and I turned the eco-mode on my psu off. Before that, I could play a song to 20 seconds then it would freeze. After that, I can play a full song without freezing, but I still can't resume my downloads. Wat do?

I've somewhat inadvertently inherited the backend of a website that I like quite a lot. It's written in PHP, and the code is rather messy.

I'm not very experienced, so I'm trying to figure out how to go about this and avoid fucking up. I've been looking up best practices and such, my main sources of confusion right now are how to organize the layout of the project and minimize redundancy. Would this be a good case for a PHP framework? I'm looking for a solution that will:

>A: allow me to improve upon the organization of the project over time without breaking its existing functionality (I don't want to have to rewrite the whole backend from scratch, I'd have to learn everything too quickly)

>B: add additional functionality as needed

For fucks sakes, is there any player that can play .swf files without error and me needing to click back and forth?

There's no way to do this with my Web browser and any extensions available to me over Pale Moon, because it means sometimes the .Swf not playing at all due to how flash disablers tend to work.

MPC-HC using CCP or KCP does play .swf, but at limitation, which blows ass, and I can't arrange the fucking playlist or make things loop, so for whatever reason, it doesn't let me play .swf outright.

I really need something with the frame control like you'd find on .swfchan, ability to pause and play in a playlist, or arranged order, I can't have this thing fucking decide to play .swfs in it's own preset order arrangement, like, say you arranged the files in order of realease but the fuck program plays them by the like of Sorted by name, and there's no way to change it.

How do I create a script that moves files Ive downloaded from directory to destination. The script should take two arguments: from and to. The categories could be files with the following characters as the file name's first letters (case insensitive): A to F, G to L, M to R, S to Z. and "-" for the rest. Each of these categories should be represented as a directory in the destination and creation of these directories should be done interactively (Hint: command "read"). However, ask for creation of these subdirectories only if the destination directory itself exists. If it doesn't exists, create an error report and exit prematurely. Check also the existence of the "from" directory and the number of arguments.

What the other anon said: >>744358

More explicitly, a literal string in double-quotes is essentially a pointer to an array of const char. You can add an integer to a pointer in C (and in C++ which inherited this syntax), which will move the pointer by the number of items specified by the integer. IOW, with variables T *a; int i; the expression a+i is equivalent to &(a[i]).

Therefore, a line (parens don't change anything, added for clarity):

output += (i + "\n");

is equivalent to:

output += &("\n"[i]);

which will obviously concatenate to output random garbage that exists in memory i-2 bytes after the end of the two-byte string constant "\n", interpreted as a null-terminated string.

Yes, using std::string is a minefield.

Also, the whole exercise is misguided.

>how much faster I can make fizzbuzz by simply concatenating a string so I only have to print it once.

This is exactly what iostreams are doing for you under the hood. Everything you pipe to std::cout is buffered until you explicitly flush it or the buffer overflows. Buffering it yourself once more on top of that only causes an additional unneeded copy of the data for no benefit.

>(About 3 times faster, btw)

Lemme guess. You've passed std::endl for endlines instead of '\n' , right?

std::endl appends a newline character and flushes the buffer afterwards. That costs extra time for no reason if you produce lots of lines at once.

And I would like to know if it would be worth to upgrade the Ghraphic card (that doesnt surpass the 200 euros). If yes, what GPu would I get that would improve my gaming, without bottlenecking my CPU?

I just had a popup on Chrome that claimed to be a ransomware. I was prevented from closing the window and my computer was getting very slow. I was afraid it was this WannaCry ransomware shit so I quickly shut down my PC and disconnected the internet cable.

I booted back my PC and everything seems fine (files are accessible, Chrome works just fine, system’s speed is normal) and I’m now performing a full system antivirus scan to be sure. Upon opening Chrome history, I realised the popup page refreshed itself probably 1000 times in a minute which I think is why my computer was very slow when it happened.

I suspect it was just a fake ransomware popup no different than those security alert popups. Still, I’m afraid of one thing: Would it be possible that it was a real ransomware but that I shut down my computer so quickly that it didn’t get the chance to fully install itself on my computer? Therefore, would it be possible that it encrypted some of my files without me knowing it? I can’t afford to spend the many weeks it would take to open all of my files one by one to see if everything is alright.

Pic not fully related as I don’t remember fully what was written on the popup as I shut down my computer very quickly.

On a related note, does anybody have a good solution for backing up X terabytes of data onto portable HDDs and retaining some level of redundancy against arbitrary disk failure without relying on X*N terabytes worth of HDDs?


 No.748188

>>748178

The proper way of doing this would be using a proper filesystem like ZFS and choosing an acceptable level of redundancy (Say 5 drives and 2 being redundant). You said external drives though, so I'll assume you're not going to have more than two connected at once, and you didn't want a 1:1 backup ratio (mirror).

Creating PAR2 files is probably the best solution for you, but you'll have to do it manually.

I want to set up a dual boot. One will be an operating system I'm familiar with, and the other I will be working on a LFS. Ideally, I'd be able to set up the familiar partition and work on the LFS in my free time. Is this doable, or does LFS need to be installed in one go?


 No.748233

>>748227

>does LFS need to be installed in one go?

It does not, but you have to be careful to replicate the environment if you leave it and come back later. That means all of the partitions need to be mounted as they were before, the right environment variables need to be set again, and the chroot needs to be reentered the same. If you fuck something up, it might not be obvious until you've wasted a bunch of time.

It's best to do it in one go. It doesn't really take all that long unless your CPU is ancient or you have way too little RAM. Best to pick a Friday night or something where you don't have anything going on the next day (and, let's face it, if you're installing LFS, your social calendar is probably pretty open), get your fapping out of the way, chug some energy drinks, and just get it done. After it's installed, you can always return to it in shorter intervals later to install additional software and get it set up the way you want it.


 No.748235

Ok, ty anon, will fap n chug now

If I get tired of it, is it pretty easy to remove that partition completely and let my main os take up the whole drive?


 No.748266

>>748235

That depends on the tools available to you in your main OS. Resizing partitions is a pain in the ass with some filesystems/partitioning tools/OSes. With others it's no problem. But LFS having been on the partition(s) you want to recover isn't an issue. It would be no different than another OS having been installed there, or it simply being a blank partition.

Good luck.

"If any public switch, router, or gateway receives a packet addressed to the loopback IP address, it is required to drop the packet without logging the information. As a result, if a data packet is delivered outside of the localhost, by design it will not accidently arrive at a computer which will try to answer it. This aspect of the loopback helps ensure network security is maintained, since most computers will answer packets addressed to their respective loopback address which may also unexpectedly activate other services on a machine by responding to a stray data packet."

Security and privacy are not the same thing. Clarify your thinking and reformulate your question.

Why would it not still be the case?

Yes, to avoid your unencrypted /boot being tampered with in your absence, you need to boot from some external medium instead. Even if you do that, there are still other attacks available to an attacker, however.

Do K-series i7 CPUs have VD-t removed/disabled on the actual chip or is that somewhere in the BIOS software? I have a i7 4770K that I'd like to overclock and use in conjunction with GPU passthrough in Gentoo.

So far I understand I should be looking at a secure OS and looking for full disk encryption, with my bootloader on a USB. But I'm not sure where to go from there for a /tech/ approved set up, or how to optimize my OS after installation. Any resources or pointers would be great.

The chip itself is jewed, unfortunately. You can forget about virtualization on this one.

The good news is that Intel stopped doing this faggotry since Devil's Canyon. Your CPU is literally the last K model that has VT-d jewed off, kek. If you manage to get your hands on a 4790K, it will work with VT-d and overclock. Make sure your mobo actually supports VT-d before you start shopping for a replacement CPU.

Pic related are the specs. Motherboard seems to support what I need. Not to sure about the GFX card in linux though everyone says AMD is better as of late.

I want to build a computer I can run Gentoo on and still play the one or two games I play that don't work well in WINE.

Should I sell this off to a friend and start from scratch or just replace the CPU? Since everything is botnet now I'm not loyal to any company.

FDE protects you from theft of your data, and some attacks by certain unsophisticated adversaries with physical access to the machine. Even with FDE + /boot on removable media, a sophisticated attacker can still compromise your machine.

Develop a threat model. What/who are you trying to protect against?

Understand various Linux kernel hardening technologies, e.g. SELinux, AppArmor, Tomoyo, SMACK, etc. There used to be grsec, but he only gives access to the testing version of the patch now unless you pay.

Understand various exploit mitigations. Stack canaries, position independent executables, relro.

Understand various sandboxing technologies, e.g. firejail.

Now look at the different Linux distributions and see what they support. Fedora has out-of-the-box support for SELinux. Ubuntu has AppArmor. More important than the fact that they've enabled these technologies in their default kernels is that they've developed policies for them. Do they compile daemons and binaries that handle arbitrary information from the network as PIE binaries? Do they include firejail or other sandboxing technologies in their repos? If not, are you willing to find a distro that does, or make sure you keep it up to date yourself?

Speaking of repos, does the distro's package manager check package signing? Is the distro good about key management/security? What are their security policies? Debian testing, for example, is garbage for security. They are quite explicit about the fact that Debian testing is very low priority for their security team. They get around to it if they can. Their focus is Debian stable. A lot of Debian testing users don't know that.

So develop your threat model. Then decide which of the available combinations of techniques and technologies will most acceptably mitigate the threats in your threat model. Then find a distro that is close to what you need. You likely won't find a perfect one. But if you find a close one, it will be less work for you to, e.g. keep a custom kernel up to date if that's what you have to do, or recompile certain packages with hardening options.

But as you can tell by what's above, you'll probably end up with some kind of kernel hardening + executable/daemon hardening + sandboxing. Add a good firewall policy. Then don't do dumb stuff like running network sniffing programs or web browsers as a privileged user. Actually, the less time you spend using a modern web browser or, indeed, even connected to the internet at all, the safer you are.

I think the website was a dull teal color and the website design itself looked old-fashioned (like a decent looking 90s to early 2000s website). But the OS itself was a recent thing. I think the features that impressed me were it targeting low-end hardware and some focus on security.

When I was installing the stock cooler onto it I kind of misaligned it at first and had to move it a bit, smudging the square of thermal paste it came with.

Hello Anons. My Mint 18.1 desktop isn't loading. I get to the login screen, login, my wallpaper flashes briefly, disappears and then I'm left with nothing but a mouse cursor (the default mouse cursor, not the one I changed it to). If I right-click then what looks like a Cinnamon menu opens, but it is empty and without buttons.

As for the cause, lastnight I cleaned up the desktop menu, but I don't understand how removing menu shortcuts -- not files or programs -- would somehow break my desktop. Was it that, or something else? And how do I fix it?

It depends on the game but yes (with a little tweaking).

For example if you want to play dawn of war vanilla, you just install playonlinux, then install dow 1 with dotnet20, directplay and dxfullsetup libraries. Then it works just like in windows.

Other games you just double click the .exe and wine auto installs it just like in windows (make sure to download libraroes through winetricks first).

If you want to play new games (past 1-2 years) then you might want to dual boot, depending on how lazy you are but it could potentially save you a lot of time (although some games have linux .deb installers nowadays).

The windows and linux partitions have to be divided, so if you use one more than the other, you'll take up space faster. ganhu is pretty lightweight for the most part, beware the KDE, and on linux it's pretty easy to mount the windows partition. I'd recommend debian over mint but they're nearly the same.

Erlang certainly does. You can attach debuggers to running code, and even patch it on the fly without even interrupting service.

Yes - qutebrowser simulates cursor down keypresses, and that 5 means it "presses" that key 5 times.

> men, let me ask you something else, is qutebrowser at least as safe and private as firefox with its addons like https, unblock, selfdestructing cookies, privacy badger, ramdon agent spoofer?

Install the QtWebKit-NG or QtWebEngine backend (start with --backend webengine) if it's available on your distribution for a more secure backend.

As for those addons - some of those are probably not possible to implement for qutebrowser currently, others are already implemented, and others will come with https://github.com/qutebrowser/qutebrowser/issues/27 and https://github.com/qutebrowser/qutebrowser/issues/30

> is there a way to add firefox addons and greasefork scritps to qutebrowser

Firefox addons: No. There might be some partial support for WebExtensions in the future, but it's hard to tell what's possible. I haven't looked at it yet.

Greasemonkey/Greasefork: Yes, but not yet - see https://github.com/qutebrowser/qutebrowser/issues/341

> also, sometimes the browser gives me a --PASSTHROUGH MODE--

> wats dat?

A mode (entered with ctrl-v in normal mode) where all keys (apart for escape) are passed through to the website.

If you're planning on overclocking you should get 600w to be safe. Get a Cryorig M9i instead of the 212 Evo, it's newer, cheaper, performs slightly better.

>>750164

>Also, how the fucking hell do I do the CPU+thermal paste+heatsink part of the build? Can I trust the paste that comes on the chip when I get it?

Simply add the total wattage requirements, and get a PSU with a single 12v rail who's max wattage is at least 10-25% higher than your system requirements. Feel free to spend more on a PSU with higher efficiency provided doing so is within your budget.

suppose that I use rsync on file a, at location A, to sync it with file a at location B.

Suppose that i perform this operation again, with file a at location A being corrupted.

What happens? Will rsync fuck up my backup?

Alright little Pajeet, I think I may understand what you are asking. rsync is just going to copy the file. If your disk is corrupt, or more accurately the sector of the disk that contains this file is corrupt, then yes copying a file to it and then from it most likely would not be a good idea. You could try to poo in it, though I'm not sure what that would solve.


 No.750213

>>750211

well, rsync works by checking the modification date on both files. So even though the content of file A had changed, if the modification date was still identical between both files, i should be fine, right?

Is it possible to do terminal DNS lookup with Tor? I know programs that support socks5 proxies can use the local Tor service or even use torsocks [program] with mixed results, but either way a program ends up connecting to a service over Tor. Why is it that programs are able to connect but a DNS lookup with host or nslookup fails? Does Tor use its own method of DNS lookup? How can I use it to resolve DNS given a hostname?

>>749738

>If I make my torrent client "require" encrypted connections, does this prevent my ISP from seeing what I leech and/or seed?

Yes.

>Does it lessen the chances of getting mafiaa'd?

Not necessarily.

Requiring encryption just makes it so the data sent cannot be seen by anyone outside of the torrent swarm. Anyone in the swarm is able to see what you're downloading, and usually companies catch users by being in the swarm to keep track of who the peers are downloading/seeding the copyrighted files.

There's nothing wrong with requiring encryption, but you're not protecting yourself against the right entity in this manner. A good proxy/VPN is what you should be using.

>>749496

>Are there any downsides to duel booting both windows and mint?

You can only boot into 1 OS at a time. Partitioning isn't too difficult (if you install WIndows first) but remember that it cuts down on available disk space. You'd also have to be careful on where to save files if you want them to be accessible to both OS's. (Linux can read NTFS, but Windows cannot read ext4.)

>So if I want to play games with friends I am still able to do this on Linux Mint?

Depends on the game. Think of games you play with friends and look up either "linux [game]" or "wine [game]" to get an idea of compatibility. I got around this by using a gaming VM, but I had to plan my computer build around it.

Got an android phone that appears to have been exploited. When I take a photo from my phone and run it through exiv2 it hits the comment block and then overflows.

Fortunately the payload doesn't seem to be configured in a way that exploits my linux box so I didn't just fuck up my day completely.

Anyway what should I do with this? I've done some searches and learned that EXIF based attacks on Android have been a thing since at least 2007 with a big one found last year.

If this is a 0day permutation on an old exploit it would seem irresponsible to just wipe the phone and start over without at least sending a sample to someone. Who's legit and worth submitting reports to for Android stuff? My phone is on 6.0.1 which is the newest I can get on this device AFAIK.

I guess the exploit IS a risk on other platforms, its just that the payload isn't tailored for this machine.

DNS lookups are usually udp but tor only supports tcp. DNS lookups are done by exit nodes.

tor-resolve(1)


 No.750243

>>750235

>Is it possible to do terminal DNS lookup with Tor?

The tor-resolve program bundled with Tor does exactly that.

>Does Tor use its own method of DNS lookup?

The client program asks Tor to connect to a given target (either hostname or IP address) through the SOCKS protocol, Tor then tunnels the request to an exit node and the exit node performs necessary DNS resolving to make the final connection. Special case is made for .onion pseudohostnames, which do not have an associated IP but are instead routed entirely within the Tor network.

Hi /tech/ where can I buy this game?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gender_Wars

>In the future, after an era of "Political Correctness and equality",[1] humanity is divided into two hostile factions. Each faction represents one of humanity's two genders, the Males (who are ruled by a Patriarch) and the Females (who are ruled by a Matriarch), both of which behave in stereotypical manners (for instance, the Males being crude and focusing too much of drinking beer, the Females being easily distracted by fashion-related merchandise), and which may try to eliminate each other and capture each other's rulers. Either faction sometimes conduct raids against the other faction to steal reproductive cells, in order to produce more members for each side.

>The player has to choose between the Male faction (who tries to capture the Matriarch) or the Female faction (who tries to capture the Patriarch). Regardless of the player's initial choice, the victorious faction of the two will put the remaining members of the defeated faction into servitude. The game ends by mentioning a rebellion caused by men and women working together, taking place a few years after the end of the Gender Wars.

If it needs to be a "cloud" service, either go with mega or a pomf clone largest maximum file size I've seen on a pomf clone is 2gb, so no matter what you'll have to cut the file up into smaller parts.

I know about Tor and VPNs, and stuff like that, but I have image about how it all pieces together. I don't know how to tell whether or not I have a gaping hole in my security / privacy set up. Could someone post a comprehensive link that goes all the way from hardware back doors, to networking stuff?

My hardware, firmware and OS situation is pretty solid imo, soon to be librebooted with full disk encryption, but I have no fucking idea how to connect to the interet safely, or take care of a malicious program or whatever.

Willing to learn, willing to read just looking for resources.

Boot into a gparted rescue environment (http://gparted.org/livecd.php) and boot into that, then run `fsck`.

what's a quick and easy way for me to find the UUID of something I've just plugged in


 No.751558

>>751555

You can run:

lsblk -f

to get all info from disks, or

lsblk -o UUID

to get just the UUID. Are you looking to find this out automatically on the 'mount' event?

>>751454

fuck, I had PAM on, even though I don't need it, but when I turned it off nothing changed. It's definitely a yaourt/pacman issue so here's the entire result of running the following strace command:

sudo strace -ttT -o st1.txt yaourt -Syu

https://pastebin.com/F3CF31Yz

An interesting thing I found is that the longest syscall is the following line:

20:22:36.491307 wait4(-1, [{WIFEXITED(s) && WEXITSTATUS(s) == 0}], 0, NULL) = 1390 <13.468984>

It seems like it's waiting on some wifi thing to exit, but why? I've got a good connection, and everything else is working.

>Are you looking to find this out automatically on the 'mount' event

I wanna make it so it automatically mounts when it recognizes a UUID (my external HDD and some USBs)


 No.751576

>>751565

I found a cross-platform tool that can auto-mount usb devices, but I have no clue how it detects that a new device was plugged in, and it also doesn't seem to have support of UUIDs.

https://github.com/rbrito/usbmount

It seems that mounting devices (even by UUID) isn't hard (this is some script that looks like it does that: https://access.redhat.com/discussions/1573543), but I don't know how they can detect a "plugged in" event.


 No.751589

>>751576

I already have some scripts which I have for my i3 config for mounting and unmount which I enable through key commands. I have it so it checks a list of UUIDs and sees if it recognizes one of them and mounts it accordingly

mount

my.mixtape.moe/yulrfe.sh

unmount

my.mixtape.moe/dqwnbu.sh

I was thinking that my hardware may have some kind of plot against me, but I'm beginning to suspect that I may actually be retarded.

This is making me lose my mind.

quick question: I fixed my earbuds by gluing something and I want to speed up the glue setting proccess. My Idea is sticking them in my gpu's exhaust fan so they heat up and the glue particles accelerate.

Could anything between 40-70 degrees damage an earbud?

you get libreboot and a truly free as in freedom operating system togheter with non-botnet hardware, if you're behind a router do the same with the router. Then you make sure anything that ever goes through your network is encrypted (for instance use HTTPS, FTPS, etc) and that your web browser doesn't leak information, then you get a VPN.

That's basically all you need to prevent losing your privacy in the web and from then on someone has to hack a weak link in all that. It's not rocket science.

Yeah my hardware is solid too, anything libreboot compatible is basically solid though, right? Running an x60T and looking to get an x200T somewhere down the line, and ideally someday a libreboot compatible custom desktop too.

I've got to look at my router, yeah. I know it has potential since it came with FSF stuff. You loose me at HTTPS and FTPS. Where can I read about this part? I think my webbrowser is set up ok too, there's lots of info and test out there for that too (like fingerprinting test and such, plus installgentoo wiki has lots of info on that).

Looking to get a VPN and looking to purchase using an anonymous method like Zcash. But I've heard two VPNs and a tor node is better. Where does TOR play into VPNs, and systems like Tails and QBES?

And how can I test my security/ privacy?


 No.751619

>>751616

Oh, and yeah of course I have a free as in freedom and beer OS. Like I said I think I've got the hardware part down, but my network knowledge sucks. I get scared to connect to the internet on my precious machine.

I'm thinking about using something like Genode on top of all that too.
