I've got an .exe in Windows 7 that runs on startup even in safemode, and I don't want it. It was created when I got a trojan malware infection (dumb, I know), so it's gotta go. I can see it in my system32 directory, but I can't delete it since it's running, and I can't kill the process in task manager or cmd.exe or process explorer (I get the "Access is Denied" pop up box when I try, even when running them as administrator).

Malwarebytes doesn't pick it up on scans.

Is there some way to boot into windows so you can just plain delete a damn file? Or some other way to get rid of this?

Oh, and this .exe spawns another .exe I can see in task manager, except this .exe is located in some super sekrit hidden directory windows explorer refuses to let me even look at.

yes. I've been thinking of the same thing for a long time. you could set your window manager to do that and it works with KDE.

If you could then you should write a userscript or an addon that lets you do this even when your preferred browser is at full screen. There is a similar feature in the Inspect Element and it's called 'responsive design mode' that lets you pick a resolution of your liking.

I'm a bit confused about how C strings inside of a function don't get popped off of the stack when exiting the function scope. In this code example, I would expect a different outcome than what happens. If returning a const char*, wouldn't it just return a copy of the local address of the string? Even when returning a pointer to a pointer of the C string (which I've done here), it has the same outcome. Can anyone explain this to me?

#include <stdio.h>

const char** getStr()
{
return "This is a string";
}

int main(void)
{
const char* str = getStr();
int x = 1;
printf("%s", str);

return 0;
}


 No.966032

>>966029

You're not returning a pointer to a pointer, just illegally casting a const char * to a const char ** and back again (which the compiler presumably just ignores).

Now as for why it works: string literals (ie. "strings in quotes") are globally scoped no matter where they're declared, and as such has the same lifetime as the process itself. It's not on the stack. If you wanted it on the stack you'd have to declare a function scoped variable and initialize it with the string literal (char str[] = "This is a string").

How do I set an environment variable for the current user? I know how to set environment variable for the current shell, and for the current shell and all its child processes:

POO=in_loo  # current shell only
export POO=in_loo # current shell and child processes

But when i close my terminal window the variables are unset again (obviously). How can I set them once and for all? I know I can set them in ~/.profile, but that file is only sourced on login, so I would have to log out and log in again after every change. On that note, what is the difference between .profile and .bash_profile? Is the latter only used if I use Bash as my main shell?

Background: whenever I install a package in Guix I need to set some environment variables before I can run the newly installed package or log out and log back in. This is really annoying.


 No.966189

>>966185

When what is sourced is a function of your shell and the parameters passed to it. UNIX had the Bourne Shell (/bin/sh) which had profile files, which are executed when a login shell is spawned. The Bourne Again Shell (/bin/bash), in an effort to be compatible with the Bourne Shell sources some or all of the original profile files are sourced by bash also. The key is to spawn a login shell to get either one to source its profile files.

A process's environment is inherited from its parent (unless it specifically overrides it using exec*e). If your shell doesn't modify it then the only way to "permanently set" an environment for new shells is to modify the environment of the process spawning it. You probably can't do that - especially since you most likely have a whole host of different processes spawning shells. It's however completely trivial to tell your terminal emulator to spawn login shells (pass -l to the shell)

My laptop (3 year old Alienware - it was a gift, I didn't buy it) has recently started groaning at me. It happens every few hours or so maybe, but the intervals are sporadic, and I haven't linked it to any particular program being on or other behavior. The sound seems to be coming from the center, possibly center-left, but it's hard to isolate. I haven't been able to get a recording of it, but it sounds like "eerragghhh.... eerragghhh.... eargg... eargg..." when it goes off, with some variance.

As asides, two issues that came up within the same two week span as the above: The sound card has been acting up, and doesn't let me ; my main SSD slowly heats up over the course of the computer running, and comes close to overheating unless I elevate the laptop up on little laptop stilts to let extra ventilation in. Which is proper form and all, but it wasn't necessary until just this past summer.

Also, the sound appeared, but then stopped for about two weeks. It just started up again four days ago out of the blue.

I tested several kernels between and including 4.19-rc2 and 3.16.0 and found that all behave this way. I didn't test anything older because I started to run into compilation problems with a modern toolchain and didn't want to introduce additional variables into the equation. I recently tried a Debian 9.5.0 live USB, and it wouldn't even try to suspend when the button in Xfce's menu was pressed.

I have an X60 running the same kernel config and Gentoo userspace that suspends and resumes perfectly. These machines are almost the same hardware except that the X60 has an Intel GPU, which leads me to suspect that's where the problem is but I have no idea how to proceed.

Any ideas?

suspend issues usually happen on linux using older core duo on intel uxa mode xorg configuration.

press ctrl alt F2 then F1 or switch to tty something else back to your original one. alternatively just disable your ATI gpu completely as linux support for novideo and amshit are shit unlike a pure intel setup.

sometimes it could be that your bios has this setting that 'turn on when AC or USB is plugged in' for intel TPM variants so that could be the culprit on your debian test.

have you tried to use another ram or do a ram test? it usually happens to me when my ram is inserted with improper contact or some kind of dirt.


 No.966766

>>966743

the best way to clean the ram would be using a piece of paper to slide off the gold pins. You'll only be getting dirt that accumulated from the ram port of your laptop or atleast remove corroded metal if the manufacturer didn't use a lot of gold

the other way is to use another ram stick and then use the silicon part (turn it vertical or the other side) to completely remove ages of dirt by scratching them.

ram sticks usually don't go bad unless it got fried on a terribly shorted mobo which could only happen on desktop or when it overheated enough to fuck the soldering balls. laptop rams are very strong but be sure to do a memtest.

PulseAudio is (poorly) solving a kernel problem in userspace and D-Bus is just a poorly designed IPC mechanism.

The only argument anyone could reasonably make about their trustworthiness is that they're such massive codebases that they're effectively impossible to audit, but who gives a toss at this point.

The problem with linux audio is that ALSA sucks, not that PulseAudio sucks. It's just a second layer of suck on the suck cake, for being so unbearably slow (for a system with soft real-time requirements no less), buggy, and CPU hungry.

The problem with D-Bus is equally fundamental: it's just COM from NT by another name and somehow even less useful. An OOP IPC mechanism primarily used from C (wat.), that requires a server, schema registration and in XML no less, and a protocol library so hugely dense with bullshit the documentation begins with this little gem in bold letters:

If you're lucky, it's a bug exposed by your flag combination (perhaps row-mt, which is fairly young, or your complex filter). If you're not lucky, it could be hardware failure. I've seen memory access violation issues with failing RAM before, as well as a failing CPU.

>linux support for novideo and amshit are shit unlike a pure intel setup.

This has been annoying me since I started fighting with Linux video drivers in 2008. It's been ten years and they still can't get it to work right. If anything, it's getting worse.

>>967697

There are two parts to this: disabling unnecessary background processes and trimming down your kernel. The former is easily done with your init system's tools, and the latter will require reconfiguring and recompiling a kernel. Consult your distro's documentation for the best way to compile a kernel. Expect it to take several tries before you get something that you like. I recommend cutting down a working kernel rather than starting from scratch.

Gentoo also has USE flags to enable and disable features in your software at compile time. Your CFLAGS do have some impact, but for the most part CFLAGS don't make a big difference to the size of the generated code.

30 MB with X running is much easier to achieve with some of the BSDs than it is with Linux. OpenBSD will idle at less than 10 MB on a console the last time I checked.

Pretty much.

Should be the same, all the per-device openwrt images really do is provide you with an image easily installable and cut down so it fits on the little storage routers have. From what I've seen they don't even bother setting compile flags for the device's specific hardware.

>>969402

>What do you guys think of all this?

Well, first of all, if your threat model includes a

>whale cunt named Joan

it's probably time to rethink your life and figure out where it all went wrong.

Second, imageboard filenames have long been an anonymity problem. On halfchan, filenames used to be (maybe still are) the Unix timestamp + a sequential number. If you reposted the image without changing the filename, anyone could tell exactly when you downloaded it. That could lead to trouble if you, say, downloaded the image through a VPN or Tor, but later posted it bareback. 8chan filenames obscure that, at least, since they're the SHA-256 hash of the image file.

Third, the /pol/fag's solution is going to be a headache for 8chan's administration, and it's going to cost them money. The current naming solution kills two birds with one stone: it gives files a name that's better for anonymity than the Unix timestamp type, and it allows 8chan to save on storage space. Obviously, they're not going to store multiple copies of the same image, they'll just serve the same image everywhere it's posted, and they already have the hash stored to make it easy. Bada bing bada boom. The /pol/fag's script is going to end up flooding 8chan's servers with multiple copies of what is essentially the same image, but with extra garbage added to change the hash.

I guess we should call the /pol/fag Ahab. He's obsessed with a white whale, and it's causing him to act erratically.

Busybox compiles to single binary and not modular in its nature.

You're unable to compile a single component without doing some serious coding.

A couple problems showed up after I did a seemingly minor change on my PC. I removed an internal USB hub and replaced it with another one, removed and re-attached the same RAM stick, and swapped cables a bit (just fucked around with some 4-pin connections between the GPU and fans, nothing else).

My GPU (NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT) isn't showing up anywhere, either on the BIOS or on any OS. Also, my fans are going on 100% even when my PC has fully booted.

I assume a logical thing to do is, first of all, since this GPU has a BIOS and it's the very first thing it showed before it couldn't be recognized, that I'd have to flash the BIOS again for it to work normally. However, I am presented with a shitload of selections from different manufacturers (the list: https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/?architecture=NVIDIA&model=9600+GT&interface=PCI-E&memType=GDDR3&memSize=512&page=1 ), and I don't know which BIOS to flash. I went by factory-default specs and narrowed it down to 2 choices:

https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/90287/nvidia-9600gt-512-080903

https://www.techpowerup.com/vgabios/43215/gigabyte-9600gt-512-090304

Which of these 2 will serve me best? Should going with factory-default specifications do me no harm, or should I known about the graphics clock and memory clock beforehand? Since my current mobo manufacturer is Gigabyte, am I more safe in selecting the second one? If the BIOS I flash is older than the previous one, will I fuck something up? Pls help me out of this shitmess.

tl;dr: How do I make 100% sure I got the correct GPU BIOS?

You're evidently not a serious user. This, again, isn't really advice so much as it is a suggestion, but most people who rely on tts actually benefit from having a more synthetic, discernable voice with predictable speech patterns.

>gentoo vs funtoo

I use Gentoo mostly because it's what I've always used. Funtoo's main claim to fame for a long time was syncing the portage tree over git, but for the last couple of years Gentoo's portage has been able to do that too. Their current biggest feature seems to be the ability to select multiple profiles. I don't see the practical value of this because you can override whatever you want about a profile in /etc/portage/*, but it could be convenient to some people. Funtoo's debian-sources package is also nice to have if you don't want to mess with the kernel as much as you normally do with Gentoo. Gentoo has a lot more manpower and presumably better QA because of it, but on the other hand Funtoo's repo uses Gentoo as an upstream so it might not be all that different in terms of quality. I haven't ever confirmed whether or not Funtoo has package signing, but I know that Gentoo does.

>protonmail

They have to be able to send and receive emails in plain text over SMTP, which means they can easily access any email they want at the time of transmission regardless of whether the mail spool is encrypted or not. That's just how email works. They claim to encrypt messages when they store them, and they use some javascript monstrosity in the browser to handle decryption. You should be using GPG or similar to encrypt your messages if they are important regardless of your provider so that they can't be read in transit. I don't trust protonmail any more or less than any other provider, but you should make your own decision based on your requirements.

I self-host my primary email on a cheap VPS and use cock.li for throwaways.

Thanks for the help man and sorry if my questions seem stupid, because I'm borderline tech illiterate. The reason why I was recommended that Desktop was due to the low power usage. I plan on running my computer and internet off a small solar power set up so I need devices that use a very small amount of energy.

I wanted either a laptop or cheap desktop with an HDMI cable port so I can plug it into this computer monitor (ASUS VE278H 27" Full HD 1920x1080 2ms HDMI VGA Back-lit LED Monitor).

Most devices, both new and old, require a large amount of power, by solar standards, so I need something that I know uses a small amount and is fairly decent. If you have any recommendations I would be glad to hear them, but building my own device is completely out of the question because I barely understand anything about computers or hardware.

I bought a ryzen 3 2200g and an A320m motherboard that had the ryzen 2000 series compatibility advertised on the box.

I thought maybe it was shorting out but I don't see any evidence of that either. Both the cpu and motherboard have power going to them. I tried booting it with a GPU and that started to spin but then abruptly stopped.

So I have a bit of a different question for you all today. I've been sort of itching to get into coding for a little while because I'd like to make my own applications and stuff. I don't like relying on other people, so it's my dream to eventually have a system built and maintained entirely by myself (I know it sounds unrealistic but please humor me on this). However from what I understand, it takes a sort of mathematically inclined brain to become a good programmer. Now it's not that I'm bad at math - I did fine in school and such - but I just fucking hate it, especially the more advanced parts like calculus and beyond. I hate it and it bores me to tears. Ideally I would like to stay away from operations more advanced than simple algebra. With that all being said, do you guys think it's a good idea for me to try and start coding, or will I just end up hitting some insurmountable block down the road due to my hatred of complex math?

tl;dr - how important is mathematics to code, generally? Which areas is it most important in, and which can you get away with not using it too heavily?

What the other guy said, if all you want to do is just script things for fun and profit you will be fine with everyday math. You can also pick up on more advanced topics without having to go in-depth. For example, it helps knowing the basic terminology and concepts of graph theory just so you can understand terms like "node", "edge", "vertex", "acyclic" or "adjacent", but you won't have to actually learn graph theory.

Of course if you want to do something that directly involves math like graphics programming you won't get around it, obviously.

Well, to be honest I've been sort of inspired by Terry in this. Since the news of his death I've been reading more about him and his life. It reminds me of myself in a lot of ways. Now maybe he didn't create every aspect of the system by himself, but to create the entire operating system and software running on it is already immensely impressive to me. I don't expect to be able to create something as complex as he did, obviously, but it would be nice to create as much as possible by myself, while striving for that ideal (even if it's impossible) of having everything done someday. But, thank you for your brutal honesty, I truly do appreciate it.

I learned C as first language that I "really" learned and I think it was good choice now that I have written projects in c, c#, java, python, c++, javascript.

However if there is one thing I can recommend, is not to learn language for sake of it but rather because it works as a tool for building whatever you want to make. Eg. C# is comfy on Windows, java for Android, python for CGI and and to write fast scripts, c++ for games/simulators, c for low level, javascript for web.

You need to actually pay attention to your compiler errors. I see a redundant closing brace in your check function, and I guarantee your compiler complained about that. You also use "input" in check, which is a variable that isn't ever declared.

A few extra nits:

* Never take in a non-const reference unless you plan on possibly modifying the input.

* Explicitly have your `check` declaration extern to signal intent.

* Don't return 0 and 1. This isn't C. Use true and false.

* For check, you want to return early for a 0-sized string, otherwise you'll be grabbing input[-1].

* Don't use i <= j. Use i < j. If i == j, then input[i] == input[j]; it's a redundant iteration.

* declaring i and j as int is not ideal. It won't usually break, but you want to make sure you use the type of s.size(), which is usually size_t. You can use std::string::size_type (and you really should in production code), but that's almost always size_t anyway, so for a small homework program like this, size_t would be sufficient.

* Insert some comments.

Here are the minimal changes to `check` that will allow it to work (but really, make those other changes I mentioned as well):

bool check(const std::string &s) {
for (int i = 0, j = s.size() - 1; i < j; i++, j--) {
if (s[i] != s[j]) {
return 0;
}
}
return 1;
}

Also, use code tags and paste your code in; don't put a screencap. If we are going to help you, you want to make it as easy as possible for us to do so. Our first instinct is going to be to try to compile it for ourselves, because regardless of how fast we are, the compiler is faster than us. We can't really do that if we have to hand-copy the text from your image, and most of us will give up on it immediately when we have to do that.

homework1.h is not necessary. All a header file is supposed to be is shared definitions for multiple translation units to share code. You only need something like that if you want to call getUserInput or runner from other units. Otherwise, you can just put the runner() function declaration (which I don't really see the point of; that could all be in main) and getUserInput declaration above main, like so:

#include <iostream>
#include <string>
#include "stringchecker.h"

using namespace std;

static void runner();
static std::string getUserInput();

int main(int argc, char **argv)
{
runner();
return 0;
}

void runner()
{

cout << "This program checks the input from a user to see if it is a palindrome."<<endl;
string usrinput = getUserInput();
cout << endl;
if (check(usrinput))
{
cout << "The input was a palindrome";
}
else
{
cout << "The input was not a palindrome";
}
cout << endl;
}

std::string getUserInput()
{
std::string buffer;
cout << "Enter a string: ";
getline(cin, buffer);
return buffer;
}

In your case, what you need to do is make sure your check declaration is the same in stringchecker.h and stringchecker.cpp. The error you get there indicates that the way you've defined it is not the way you've declared it.

Here is the way I have it set up, with stringchecker.h:

#include <string>

extern bool check(const std::string &s);

and stringchecker.cpp:

#include <string>
#include "stringchecker.h"

bool check(const std::string &s) {
for (int i = 0, j = s.size() - 1; i < j; i++, j--) {
if (s[i] != s[j]) {
return 0;
}
}
return 1;
}

Note that both the declaration and definition have the same signatures. This is vital. This compiles for me

It is technically redundant, but it isn't that much noise and allows the reader to not have to worry about the static/extern rules, which aren't obvious to a beginner (global functions are extern by default, global variables are not). Whether you want to use them or not is up to you, but based on the other noise that is often found in header files (inline functions, macros, etc), being explicit about extern doesn't hurt. It signals intent to the reader, if you happen to have people manually reading your header files.

Another advantage is that you won't automatically lose extern visibility if you happen to switch a definition from a function to a function pointer (which is static by default, being a variable).

Tons of projects use extern like that. Lua does it (through a macro).

Being explicit by default can save you a lot of headaches at the marginal cost of greater verbosity.

What's the state of gaming on BSD (OpenBSD, NetBSD, DragonflyBSD, FreeBSD, etc.)?


 No.972578

>>972576

If I recall, your best chances are on FreeBSD, but overall it's not good. Depends on what kind of games you like.


 No.972585

>>972578

Grand Strategy games, emulators (PS1/PS2 emus mainly) and a bit of cs:go. This is not a big concern on hopping to BSD, but it's obviously a drawback if I can't play any games or at least run them in Wine.


 No.972589

>>972585

I believe there are indeed ports for wine, in FreeBSD at least. There must be a PSX emulator as well. Can't comment on GSGs or CSGO but I think you will probably be able to play a fair amount of what you're into. (Check the specific games first before installing just to be sure.)

I must not have been paying attention then. That's interesting. Yeah, can't argue with all that.

How do I encrypt my external porn drive so I can view the files without needing to extract them first?

Apologies because my only experience with encryption is PGP keys and text , but not larger files. Quick rundown?

I have about 70 gigs of JAV (mp4) and 10gb of png and gif

I'm tired of all this distrohopping shit

any OS besides Windows 7 (currently posting from it) that just works, is libre, is fast as fuck (not like gnome, which works like 2 windows updates started at the same time), can into drive encryption and isn't BSD?

So far I've tried (*buntus and elementary with linux-libre kernel):

Parabola, MX Linux, Xubuntu, Debian, elementaryOS, Ubuntu, Lubuntu Ubuntu MATE, Trisquel, Trisquel Mini, Gentoo, GuixSD, TinyCore, Devuan, Manjaro, Kali, Mint, Heads, Fedora, Solus, Antergos, Kubuntu and Tails

Is there any hope for me or do I really have to make my own distro because them niggers can't even make one that meets all my kinda autistic requirements?

Years of tiny mistakes have built up and I want to do a reinstall. I'm used to Arch, but I'd like to try something without systemd. It's a chinkpad X220 and I don't want to spend weeks installing, so source-based is out of the question. I'd prefer to have packages from this decade so Devuan is out. What are my options?

I'm in the same position. I've tried countless distros now and I still can't find anything that just werks like Windows 7 does.

Xubuntu is my favorite out of everything I tried though, despite the issues I had on it.

>>973160

You might want to wait until they release 5.0 for the 18.04 base. I don't think they have any upgrade tool like the "official" Ubuntu flavors or Mint.

I find out that Everychan is out of Google store and most of the Imageboards app are way to new and don't allow it on my phone.

Is there an Imageboard app that can work on a Android 4.2.1, the phone I use at night to lurk is very old and now Everychan doesn't allow me to solve captchas from time to time when I need it.
