Does anybody have a good book or website recommendation about Interix/SUA on Windows 7, or about Windows 7 system administration in general?

I am not much of a Unix wizard and don't have the slightest idea about Windows, but I'd like to setup NFS on, and port some simple c and Perl applications to Interix on a win7 workstation. I don't have access to Microsoft support and would really appreciate some form of concise manual or at least a collection of guides for common tasks.

I am now running puppy linux from my external HD, using a S46C notebook. The system didn't show me any bugs but the one where you instantly click on the first option after you right click the taskbar, now my internet settings isn't there anymore, it also disconnected me from the internet but I already fixed it in 4 hours of browsing. Persistence is working ok.

Not using more than 950MB of ram right after you flush with more than 5 tabs open on pale moon.

The system seems very old and carefully built. I feel that if I ever try to install something that the devs don't intend me to everything is going to be ruined, even though I still haven't tried it.

It also feels like a really old distro.

No audio problems, I am still using the drivers that installed themselves on boot when I had no access to internet.

I'm wanting to build a NAS. I was planning on using my old potato PC for this since the mobo has 6 SATA ports which would be enough for me. I just need a case that has at least 6 drive bays, but that has been surprisingly hard to find for less than some ridiculous $200+ price tag. Why is it so hard to find a plastic box with 6 smaller boxes on the inside for less than $100? I don't care about noise level or portability. I literally just want a plastic box than can hold my cheap ass NAS. Preferably with bays that are easily removable, but apparently that's a high-end luxury. Are there any good cases for this out there?

Also, would it really be worth it to get WD Reds instead of Blues? I'm planning to start with four 2TB drives, and MAYBE adding another two drives eventually, but probably not any time soon. The Reds cost $20 more each, and I don't think it will make much of a difference for just a home NAS.

What's a good Raid level to choose for a home NAS? I was going to go with a Raid 5, but upon further research, I'm seeing a lot of people saying Raid 5 is bad and you should never use it. I even read an article saying a the chance of a Raid 5 failing to rebuild after a drive failure is one in every 12tb, so a 6tb raid would have a 50% chance of failure, and a 12tb raid would have nearly 100% chance of failure, losing all data on the array. Is this true? Is Raid 5 really this bad? I was planning on having a 4tb array, to be later upgraded to 10tb, so this is pretty worrying to me.

RAID 6 or RAID 10. Better, use software and good backup practices. RAID-Z2 or RAID-Z3. RAID isn't really useful, unless your home server is doing a lot of writes and reads.

>>866624

RAID 6 seems to be completely pointless compared to 10 when you have a small number of drives. With 4 drives, RAID 6 and 10 would give me the same usable capacity, but 10 would have better performance and redundancy.

>Better, use software

Like what? Unless you mean software RAID, which is what I was going to do.

>and good backup practices

I'm too poor for more backups than copying a few super important files to USB drives every now and then.

>RAID isn't really useful, unless your home server is doing a lot of writes and reads.

If you want an ultra easy first language, then go with Python. Otherwise start with C/C++. Learning C is very important and gives you the best foundation.

Not really sure what you mean by that, but here's a good website for C++ that gives a good explanation of programming concepts. I don't really know of any good Python tutorials like this, since I just picked it up by looking at docs; which is an example of being able to pick up another programming language pretty easily once you have C down.

I need some /tech/ advice. I recently bought an SSD (Samsung 850 EVO), and I want to make use of its hardware encryption. Since the device is always encrypted, I just meed to secure it with a password.

My question is this: if I set a BIOS password, is my data secure? My understanding is that if the BIOS password was changed/reset by an attacker (or myself for that matter), the existing data on the SED would be unreadable, as its encryption key would be reset. Is that correct?

mpv is freezing my computer today, but it worked fine yesterday. My mpv.conf is blank. It's on version 0.28.0, but it hasn't updated in 2 weeks. Trying to change versions and re-install didn't help. Looking at my updates, I think it might be a driver update causing issues? (I use an RX470.) I'm just confused though because the driver updates occurred 2 days ago but I remember watching videos the next day without issues, unless I used SMPlayer without realizing it?

I can still use SMPlayer with no issues. Is there something I should add to mpv.conf to avoid the freezing? (The video will play fine with mpv as I hear the audio, but my whole screen freezes and the mouse/keyboard become disabled. PS2/USB didn't make a difference.)

A BIOS password just protects someone from changing BIOS settings. This has nothing to do with protecting data on your hard drives.

Even if the drive has hardware encryption? Pic related is from Samsung Magician software that came with my SSD. So-called Class 0 encryption is enabled when I set up a BIOS password.

No sound (I'm trying to get it to work via HDMI with a Radeon 6850 card)

The speaker-test does not work. "Playback error: -2,No such file or directory"

My card shows up as the default in AlsaMixer, but there are no volume bars. Just a single square with "00" in the middle of it, and a brackets that read <S/PDIF>.

>Things I have not tried

I have not delved into /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf , as Gentoo's documentation is sparse for that and the helpful files are not where my alsa.conf said they would be, but I will likely be spending a portion of today going over that.

I'm also worried that this could be a simple problem of not having the right modules loaded or built in, would I be foolish to save a copy of my kernel and just run something like localyesconfig or some other very broad kernel build option?

Don't. Just install Ubuntu. You'll still learn a lot and get a headache all the same, but if you start with Gentoo or Arch you're just going to be copy pasting shit into the terminal to get anything to work without understanding what it does or why.

I have a CRT I like to use for gaming, video, and photos, driven by an nVidia GTX 960, and want some way to use the monitor's full capabilities for more optimal refresh and resolution modes. Every GUI I can find is horribly outdated or incapable of bypassing the monitor's pathetic default modes, and CLI instructions seem to vary from editing the XOrg file in undocumented and flaky ways clear to flashing the monitor with a hacked EDID.

Is there any equivalent of Powerstrip or SwitchRes for Linux? Or at least some modern, complete instructions on completely bypassing defaults for custom modes by hand?

Sounds like you want a manga reader, which is also good for other images. The least annoying one on Linux is:

https://sourceforge.net/projects/comix/

Which can flip through a folder and/or archive of images, use a persistant library with bookmarks, use separate keyboard shortcuts for scrolling/zoom/paging, use the mouse for scrolling, resample images nicely, and supports vertical fit/horizontal fit/manual zoom modes.

Ok, what happened? I accidentally overwrote by /bin folder with a symlink to /usr/bin when making a symlink, thinking I had fucked up bigtime I rebooted my computer to confirm I had borked it but it seems to be working fine. So I assume either that /usr/bin contained all the same files as /bin already or the symlink command merged the files in the folders or something, any insight?

Also since /usr/bin and /bin both basically just store a bunch of binary files I doubt it matters if I accidentally merged them anyway right? If everything is peachy I can't really be bothered reverting the change.

/sys/kernel/debug/usb/devices:E: Ad=81(I) Atr=03(Int.) MxPS= 1 Ivl=256ms

MxPwr=100mA

Does it mean my USB hub can only bring 100mA or it provides 100mA on each port?

I had it plugged in on a USB3.0 port.

Can I expect the

<the USB2.0 hub to draw USB3.0's 900mA ~ 1.5A

<or this is a pinout specifict thing? (usb3.0 is just usb2.0 with additional 5pins that brings the extra amps/data or no?)

<is it practically safe?

I can only use 2 HID on my USB hub. Both requiring only 100mA

<Is it bad for my USB3.0 port?

those t2x series can still survive in this era. they're robust and well-built although the specs are the only problem if compared on today's models.

You should install all the required drivers. I would suggest arch as it is the easiest to have it all work.

I don't use proprietary nshit or amdshit though I've noticed that time when I forgot to install libva and mesa I can never get xrandr to work properly and thought my monitor broke. I removed vesa (it seems to be another culprit)

If you haven't, just try installing:

libva

mesa

nvidia's opencl and dkms

>user@computer ~ $ xrandr --newmode "640x480_120.00" 52.50 640 680 744 848 480 483 487 518 -hsync +vsync

>user@computer ~ $ xrandr --addmode DVI-I-0 640x480_120.00

Remove the _120.00 on both newmode and addmode. Just name it as "640x480"

xrandr --newmode "1280x1024" 138.75 1280 1368 1504 1728 1024 1027 1034 1072 -hsync +vsync

xrandr --addmode VGA1 "1280x1024"

this is my xrandr setup.

I'd suggest to do another cvt if you had xf86 vesa installed before as it brings different and wrong results plus it won't add any mode (it would tell me it's VGA-1 with dash and it will never show the real refresh rate telling me it broke).

There are also Ubuntu variants like Kubuntu and Ubuntu MATE that have a different desktop. You can install any variant's desktop on any other variant alongside whatever desktops it already has, though, so your choice now won't lock you out of that.

The limit on attachments is usually set by the provider sending the email. I've never had attachment restrictions on emails received, but if there is and the sending/receiving providers have different attachment restrictions, you're likely going to be bottlenecked by the provider with the greater restrictions. Depending on the file size and number of the files you want to send, you or the person sending the files are better off uploading the files to a dedicated file sharing site and sending a link.

Is it possible?

OKay, so I have a ton of music (I use soulseek a lot). My collection is expanding everyday and I'd like to keep track of when I added something for the first time, and its subsequent positions.

I don't want a HUGE git repo, I don't even want a backup. I just want a log of my files.

Is it possible?

Okay OP here, I'm doing this

>add file names to .txt file

>add .txt file to git

>write a cron task to monitor the folder and update file + reupload to git if anything gets added

The git repo is initialized in /home/user/folder.

I want the directory with the text list to be hidden, so it's named .list and I set up a cronjob to run the following script every 5 minutes.


cd /home/user/folder/ && tree -faRn -o /home/user/folder/.list/1
cd /home/user/folder/ && tree -faRhupsDn --du -o /home/user/folder/.list/2
git -C /home/user/folder add .list
git -C /home/user/folder commit -m $a

It's also monitoring the .git folder (!) and this means that it's committing everytime the script runs. Should I add .git to a gitignore? Why is it watching the .git folder anyway? is it because my directory is named .list? Do I need to double quote it? .list isn't a git repo.

>that's a GPT you got there

How would you infer that? You do realize you can install almost every OS to a logical drive on an extended partition, and thus install literally dozens of OSes with MBR partitioning? DOS needs to be on a primary, but Windows since 95 needs a primary only fo for the bootloader (be it io.sys, ntldr, bootmgr, whatever) while the OS itself can reside on a logical drive. All Linux bootloaders (LILO, GRUB1/2, SYSLINUX etc.) can reside on a logical drive to begin with. You could install a shitton of OSes including DOS, many versions of Windows and a random number of Linuces all on one physical disk with as much as just one single primary partition.


 No.870690

>>864961

Apparently your Linux bootloader was on that Windows partition (at least the second stage one which isn't in the MBR). Dunno about your current (or exact former) partition setup, but you need to install one main bootloader which will either directly load kernels of installed OSes or chainload VBRs (volume boot records) of the partitions they were installed to (assuming they have bootloaders of their own installed there which will then load the respective kernel). If your new bootloader installation does not recognize all installed operating systems, you will need to add entries manually.

You need to learn about partition tables and bootloaders so these things stop being "magic that just werks somehow until it stops werking" to you and you are able to set them up manually as you like as well as fix them if they break.

Apparently turning off XHR for 8ch.net in umatrix cuts the bullshit data transfers (the connection is encrypted, so the data transferred cannot be viewed - HTTPS is a double-edged sword as in a third party can't view the transferred data, but neither can the user), but then posting doesn't work either, with an empty message box with nothing but a close X and OK buttons.

My nginx server isn't serving php files properly. I'm pretty sure I have everything required for php to work, but when I open any php files, it serves them as a download. Embedded php doesn't work either.

Server configuration:

server {
listen 80;
listen [::]:80 default_server ipv6only=on;

error_page 404 = /usr/share/nginx/html/.404.html;
root /var/www/html;
index index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html index.php;
server_name localhost;
location / {
try_files $uri $uri/ =404;
}
location ~ \.php$ {
include snippets/fastcgi-php.conf;

# With php-fpm (or other unix sockets):
fastcgi_pass unix:/var/run/php/php7.0-fpm.sock;
# With php-cgi (or other tcp sockets):
fastcgi_pass 127.0.0.1:9000;
}

# deny access to .htaccess files, if Apache's document root
# concurs with nginx's one
location ~ /\.ht {

I screencapped all his faggot conversations with other fags as proof but I forgot the fucking password. I think he may have been brainwashed by a faggot english teacher in highschool and that's why I need to get those screencaps back because there's one conversation with the teacher, apparently they still fuck each other, where they mention some flipping point in highschool where he was turned out

-X usually indicates how many commits happened since the last version. You can use "git describe <branch> --tags" to attain this number which makes it easy to script as part of your build. Sometimes instead of the number of commits a commit hash is appended (8chan used to do this).

Is there a way to submit a huge amount of links to archive.is automatically? For example if I want to save pages of a forum that is about to be shut down. Some threads have 30 pages. I have my ways of extracting those links, and I know how to save them with archive.org.

Well it works like this:

https://web.archive.org/save/

I just put the url I want to save behind /save/ like this: https://web.archive.org/save/https://8ch.net/tech/res/733048.html and once I click that link it automatically saves it. But that only works for archive.org, archive.is does, as far as I know, not have url save option like that. I am currently using .org to save these links, but I would prefer .is for my links because from what I heard .org deletes links if they don't like them.

Call it with ./archive "url_here". It will take a few seconds and then output a url eg. https://archive.fo/XXXXX. If you really need it as a bash script, you can fix it by changing $argv to $1 and add a $ in front of the command substitutions.
