Bring all your hardware, software and other troubles here.



You aren't booting into an ISO or anything when this happens right? Does this happen after every reboot and how long is it taking to come up with that message? If you did any disk checking utilities from within Linux you could have very well fucked up something with the filesystem and do chkdsk again with WinRE.



Nah, havent even created the bootable yet. This is from the WinRE administrative X drive command prompt. Only thing i did beforehand was change to the C directory. Id say not more than 15 seconds before it popped up.

Didnt do anything in linux like that. Exclusively just copypasted my C drive to external memory. Read that doing anything like that in linux should only be done to mostly healthy drives.

Ive only rebooted once so far, but ill give it another go or two.



Hold on, i can apparently revert pending actions. Lemme try that and the try a scan again.


Are there any known issues with Illumos (Open Indiana) and openvpn? Trying to get openvpn/mullvad working on hipster, and the ovpn script errors out with "cannot unplumb tun0, interface does not exist." Anyone?



No dice on revertimg the pending actions. Same error still pops up.


>take out 1tb harddrive filled to the brim with anime, video games, movies, music, books, and over 100,000 images to clean computer

>plug it back in

>its not showing up

>its not even turning on

Is this acutally the end? I'm not even panicking right now because I cannot comprehend it dying from just that. I've tired different cables and a different computer but its still not coming on. Someone show me the light please or else I may go nuclear.



I meant 10 tb.



Shoulda put it in a static proof sleeve when you took ot out. Only thing i could think of would be some static discharge between taking it out, puttin it wherever, then puttin it back in. Slightest bit will fuck its day in half.


Function keys on keyboards seem to be underutilized, at least to me. I don't really know anybody that uses anything other than F5 and F11 (mostly to unfullscreen something when they accidentally fullscreened it). Also ctrl+alt+fkey on linux. And some of the functions like search/find people tend use to use the hotkeys instead, I'm assuming that even though it takes multiple fingers the hotkey combos are easy to hit on muscle memory while the f-key is not.

Are those keys mostly useless? Anybody do anything interesting or think something they provide should be used more?


Anyone have any solid information on bypassing or unlocking Apple watches of series 1. Just bought the watch and the asshole said it was unlocked... And it's actually locked, craigslist fucktard. Any info on it would be helpful. I've looked around the usual...google, youtube, ircs... etc.



Both the (S)ATA cable and the (S)ATA power cable are plugged in? If not, go to a specialist.

>What are some other ways I can de-google my android?

throw it in the trash



You seem sane but the anon makes me believe your pulling my leg.



Yes, because the signal changes depending on if numlock is enabled or not.

I imported the _util.xorg_keysyms(KEYPAD_KEYS) from pynput and printed out the list and found that numpad 5 sends the signal for 'Begin' when numlock is on.

Weird quirk but ultimately not the issue at hand, because I would like to use the keycode for the rest of the numpad as I have to do with number 5 but there doesn't seem to be a way to do that with pynput.

There's only 3 values for keycodes: vk, char, and is_dead. So 0-4, 6-9 only register their mapped keycode value (which are just the same as the number bar).

I haven't figured out a way around this by looking at pynput's source, so unless someone is more familiar with it than me, I may have to look into a different library for monitoring keyboard signals.


I want to get some text files off of termux in winblows 7. search parameters for this issue are not precise enough to get anywhere near what I want.

C:\Computer\Device\Internal storage\Android\data\com.termux shows nothing, which is bullshit because doing all forms of ls in termux shows the files I've been writing on and the folders they're contained in.

USB debugging is on.

my device is rooted.

what do I need to change in order to do this?

love you tech, thank you for actually helping me with my technology problems.



Are you going through File Explorer to the path? Or are you using `dir` in cmd?

Actually I may have figured out how to use a better library for this purpose, pynput is great and all, but not being able to differentiate the numpad signals from the number bar is a pain in my balls.

I just tried out evdev which will return various information about key presses, and even can output an easy to use key, so numpad 1 will return KP_1 but the number bar will return K_1, which is pretty much all I wanted.

It was just a pain in the ass setting up evdev, because it requires a ton of shit it doesn't indicate in the install instructions, like not telling you to download the setup.py script or how you should actually run it (the command it gives is functionally wrong, and I had to examine the source of setup.py to figure out why), but then evdev couldn't access /dev/input to receive signals from the keyboard because I wasn't a part of the input group for whatever reason, nor was there a udev rule for the input group.

It took like 30 minutes to get through all the things not mentioned in the docs before I could even test evdev.

Now I'll have to try refactoring my existing script to use the evdev library.


I have 11 rooms on the same floor that need internet access (1 pc per room).

Should i go wired or wireless? Can a wifi router handle 11 stations at once?



As for handling 11 stations, new routers likely can without problem. As for the signal, you have to consider that each wall attenuates the signal about -2dB to -3dB, which means the signal is losing close to half strength. That is definitely something to consider.



>As for handling 11 stations, new routers likely can without problem

My experience with mainstream routers is that they can barely hold 3 stations at once. Can you propose a better router?

As for the wall, it definitely is a problem. Fortunately they are very thin. However, it's either drilling-cabling-switching or wifi-with-signal-loss. Wat do?



I am not entirely certain about which make/model of router to recommend. I can't help you there except you might look into building your own. You could get a barebones microATX or ITX system and install some flavor of linux or BSD and run a few WiFi radios off of it. But, if you have 3 walls between your WiFi source and the receiver, that's -10dB attenuation or 1/10 signal power, that's almost going from 5 bars to 2 or 1. That means you will either need to jam out a 1W signal at the device and AP, or use repeaters after 1 or 2 walls.

Or you could look into getting a directional antenna for the router and the client station. I wouldn't go for a cheap antenna. I would recommend an antenna with a gain over 10dB. A 12dB gain antenna has a 16x performance over an ideal 0dB antenna. Be careful though. 2.4 GHz/5 GHz bands are microwaves. Check your local laws about the total EIRP levels allowed for the gain of the antenna and the output power of the WiFi radio.



Thanks for telling me about this, but I'm not sure how to get LSTB and I already have 7 on a USB, so I'm considering sticking with that. Know any way to get it?

not really. it's just that most SSDs are seagate and aren't reliable. i'd recommend the first step though which is getting an hgst or toshiba SSD or just buy phased out server racks with several TBs of SSDs

>router on lan

Maybe I should explain better.

I want to use the openwrt router as a switch that is linked to the router connected to the internet, but the problem is that it can't access the internet (always gives error 404 or something), and I don't know what to do. I just want the simplest way to get it to work so I can install luci on it.



What about Samsung? 850 EVO for example.



samsung drives are basically a seagate franchise.

if you open up that baby, you'll see samsung lasered on its chips.

just don't treat it badly. IIRC it's the temps that you should be wary about. I'd recommend monitoring temps that would notify you realtime.



>samsung lasered on its chips.




What would too badly mean?

I plan to have the OS, most programs (including stuff like photoshop), browsers and some games. I have heard new SSDs are more durable so I shouldn't worry as much about writing on it, so temp files should be fine or?



>tempfiles OS and photoshop

SSDs are made for that. just keep the temps down and you'll be fine.

and read the user manual



temps = temperature

tempfiles = cache/temporary



I didn't confuse them.

What about a browser? That will be writing constantly stuff on it, especially if on a video site?

But do temperatures really get that high? And how high is bad? I really have no way to regulate the temperature. I guess I might have to buy a fan or two for the front of the case?



browser caching? why not force it to your ram?

cooler temps are always good for the lifespan and performance. there are simulated throttles when certain temps are met.

you should check it once you set it up. below 25C/77F during extreme load should be fine but keep in mind when summer comes.



>browser caching? why not force it to your ram?

I guess with the 16GBs that I will have now that's a good possibility. But otherwise it shouldn't be okay on the SSD too?

And I should certainly try to update the firmware before I install anything on it, right?

I know I should defrag or do cache wipes with programs such as CCleaner, but normal formating should be fine, right?



Don't forget to vent your fucking kitchen out, when you bake electronics to reflow the solder it will fill your kitchen with fumes. If you don't have a way to vent it, don't try it. Also you will want to let the oven run on the clean setting afterwards because the inside will smell forever otherwise.



Is your keyboard layout normal and have you tested on a different keyboard?



Does your file browser have hidden files enabled?




Is the router getting an IP assigned to it?



No idea.However I've managed to solve the internet connection issue by following this https://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/recipes/dumbap but now I can't figure out the IP to access the router. Is there a quick way to figure it out?



Well you specified the ip, that's the ip that you use to access the router. Just make sure it is outside the range of the possible ips that the router it's connected to can assign. You are making a lan network within a lan network right?



bumping for interest



I've only tested one keyboard, and it's a normal layout. The problem was more with the pynput library than the keyboard.

I've since adapted most of my program to use the evdev library which is more versatile, but now I'm having trouble devising my own listener thread for the keyboard.

Since I'm only monitoring for numpad inputs, I've set up a a definition for tracking the keys once they're released, otherwise it spams the console while they're pressed, and the main loop for reading events is in it's own definition with a custom exception class to break it when I hit escape.

My second threaded definition is copied straight from my old code, but it's not being called triggered from the main loop:

def keyboardMonitor():
for event in device.read_loop():
key = evdev.events.KeyEvent(event)
if key == 'KEY_V':
if event.value == 2: #key is held
if event.value == 0: #key released
except StopReadLoop():
def do_thing():
while (not exitEvent.is_set()):
if (secondEvent.wait(0.1)):
print('doing thing')
print('not doing thing')
class myThing(threading.Thread):
def __init__(self):
def run(self):
class keymon(threading.Thread):
def __init__(self):
def run(self):
thingThread = myThing()
listener = keymon()

I cannot figure out how to use 'dir' with android devices, it seem to require a device letter that does not exist of these devices.

The CPU cable from the PSU doesn't have exactly the same holes as the ones on the mobo, but it goes in. Would that be a problem?


Ryzen 1600 here.

The Windowa USB starts up. I can't use the mouse, but I continued with keyboard. It can't read the HDDs and the SSD, though. It says drivers are missing. I am doing this through a USB2.

I tested the USB on another machine and it works.




After HOURS of fucking around with this, I did actually get it to thread the functions properly. so now there's a daemonized thread that is watching keyboard input and the second function is being called from it, then stopping once the daemonized process no longer receives keyboard input.

Weird issue is now I can't get the program to terminate. It checks if the escape key is released then raises my custom exception class, which should break it out of the loop, which it does, but then the program is still running and I have to ctrl-c twice to exit out of it, presumably from the threads not exiting. The errors I get are from python's threading module.

It's a hard thing to objectively say.

Some people mind the blur, others like the extra detail even if it's made up with resampling algorithms.

In my experience most artificial images will look worse because they generally have sharp artificial lines, but real life images have soft color transitions that almost all resampling techniques create so it's very possible the resampled version is closer to reality. Also anything with subpixel rendering (computer text for instance) resamples horribly.

I wouldn't worry about it too much, even with a 1080p screen you would eventually watch 720p material. And the 1080p to 1440p resampling artifacts are harder to spot because of the generally smaller pixels.



All packages from the default repositories using the package manager should be safe.

Now that I'm more clear headed, the specific error I'm getting when I have to use keyboardinterrupt to exit the application is:

/usr/lib/python3.6/threading.py in _shutdown t.join()

in join self._wait_for_tstate_lock()

in _wait_for_tstate_lock elif lock.acquire(block, timeout):

So I guess it still isn't releasing the threads, I gave the keyboard monitor definition a similar conditional loop to the second threaded function:

while (not exitEvent.is_set()):
#keyboard monitoring functions
except StopReadLoop:
print('broke loop')

So in this, I know it's breaking the loop once it prints that message, the custom exception is raised and that all works, but I thought by calling *Event.clear() that I was releasing the threads.

So what I did was in main() where I start and join the threads, after each is started and joined I just added a print message, and found that it prints 'started <kbMon(Thread-2, started etc)>'

'started <myThing(Thread-1, started etc)>'

then when I hit escape to break out from the monitoring loop, it prints

'joined <kbMon(Thread-2, stopped etc)>'

and stops there, so it's still not stopping the other thread?

Wait, is it like, a big fan? The type that you use to cool people? It looks like that.


If you want to use it as a secondary fan just to remove the warm air out of the computer case - it would be marginally effective, but some difference would be there.

It just makes the job of your small attached-to-CPU fan a bit easier, since the hot air does not build up around it.

If you mean to use it AS the main fan, instead of the tiny one - no chance in hell. It's too big and slow to provide a strong and relatively-precise airflow necessary to cool all the folds of your heatsink. It would technically be better than having no fan, but way shittier than just using a dedicated CPU fan.

Unless you also plan on having a fucking massive custom heatsink, matching the fan in size. Then it could work.





yeah, it would remove warm air from the case and it is used to cool people

I'm not sure whether the syntax will be correct, but you can just use the arguments you pass to your bash script:

urxvt -e nvim $1

If you want the option to open multiple files in different instances, you can just FOR loop over $@, so all arguments.



Sadly there's not a good cracked copy. And search for the stock cyanogen mod file manager.




urxvt -e "nvim whatever whatever..."

Not sure about the WM, you have to look for WM that can run on your init system.



>you get bsod if you use earlier versions of 7 and vista. if you shrinked the drive using the ubuntu installer WITHOUT defragging first on windows then you are fucked. when do you get the bsod? after the loading screen or after selecting the grub one? If you dualbooted I recommend reverting back to the original windows boot. If you have EFI this wouldn't be a problem.

No, EFI, dualboot, or drive shrink (truthfully dont even know what two of those even mean). Ran ubuntu off of a usb bootable solely to copypaste my C drive to external memory. First time i ever used linux, and its the only thing i used it for.

Bsod happens on start up, when the four colors start to converge to make the windows logo.

What would I have to do to get high quality rips of my blu-rays?


Realistically, how much will it cost to get someone to code a forum for me?

One that looks like a chan in that it has auto-update and post numbers but it isn't anonymous (I am making it to get normie shekels).

I cloned the infinity code to see if I could do it myself but I am fucked if I understand a thing about it.



How much is your budget?

What's your planned timeline?

captcha: irsQng



Highest quality possible is creating a bdremux, that means copying and pasting the audio/video streams into a commonly used container such as matroska. The resulting file is not a reencode but a copy of the audio and video generally about the size of the blu-ray. The bluray isn't distributed as it is because it's a mess with a bunch of folders, split files and a bunch of overhead that the average user can't deal with, unlike a .mkv file that anyone can double click.

"High Quality" is a subjective term but if you don't want a bluray-sized file your only choice is a reencode which will lose some quality, how well you do it and how big you make the file dictates if it can be labelled high quality.



budget: I have $5000

Disabling secureboot isn't the best choice. If you're dualbooting, secureboot disabled can cause problems with your microshaft windows install.

I suggest get a dvd that is supported by the EFI hardware which are: windows 8 and up or a bootable linux (not an old as fuck ISO!).

Try testing a linux dvd.

The most basic problem with not being able to boot is:

<your boot order of hardware is wrong

<should be: fdd (usb) > odd (dvd sata)> hdd (sata)> pxe (lan)

<boot order of software efi is also wrong

<should be: external usb > optical drive > hard disk (these are usually in the name of the device e.g, Ubuntu efi boot USB > PLDS DVD > WD HDD)

keep in mind the "Ubuntu efi boot USB" from the example will not show up in efi bios menu IF it isn't inserted before booting AND IF it isn't set to the proper boot orders. No luck? try finding the boot menu shortcut, usually F10 F12 or F8



did you modify your C drive? (deleting or copying stuff to it?) It is not suggested to modify your file system and bootables never come with ntfs3g by default or at least they come with FUSE which is not good. If you deleted or copied stuff to it using ubuntu then the problem might be from a corrupt $MFT


What free software is there that can actually monitor ryzen 1600's temperatures?

What languages do you actively write daily now?



C#, C++, a little bit of Python



You might try looking in the Daily Programming Thread and finding a project that you are for certain know you won't need any FFI or non-standard library and crank out that program to get a feel for the language.

Then if you want to go further, find another project that you know will require using the FFI or a library and write that.

Here is a great resource: https://www.xach.com/lisp/

I used quicklisp quite a bit.

I didn't make anything super useful, but I also didn't know any programming language besides webdev stuff.

I found it way too slow, but the REPL made it easy to debug so there was that.



Alright, thanks!



Same anon.

So seems like my temperatures are being detected, sometimes. On some restarts they are on some they are not.

Should I start getting worried?

What can I do to test shit out?



Yeah. That sounds like it could be hardware failure. I've gone through multiple computers with hardware failure ranging from old, shitty, leaking capacitors to GPU meltdown. If the computer still works, I wouldn't use it for anything that is data sensitive like tax, medical, family records. You could probably still use it for anything else but expect a performance hit when the hardware has to chug and rechug along because of fouled bits. Just keep monitoring it like you are doing now and take notice when it starts acting willy wonky. You'll figure out pretty quick if it can take the pressure or not.

I wouldn't leave it on all the time however.



The thing is that everything but the GPU is new.

Where should I think the problem is? The CPU or the motherboard?

Also my RAM CMK16GX4M2B3000C15, should be working at 15-17-17-35, but it is working at 16-17-17-35. And that's with the XMP profile on. In the bios it says it is made to work at 15, but it doesn't.



It's kind of hard to diagnose the exact problem. You say it overheated and stayed on for several hours like that? Were any fans spinning?

I would say it's likely something on the motherboard. Either the northbridge or the southbridge.

If you can use it, then use it, but don't use it for anything that is valuable like record keeping.

Just keep watching the temperatures and watching performance for your drives, network, usb, etc.



As far as I know it hasn't overheated.

When I saw I woke up and it was frozen it was actually a weird situation. I set up so my steam library would redownload and when I woke up nothing would come up on the monitor (no hibernation on). I ended up hard reseting it from the case button. The thing is nothing was even downloaded. It was exactly up to where it was when I turned off the screen (and only the screen) and went to bed. So whatever happened must have happened immediately after I went to bed.



All you are wanting is to monitor the temps? Did your mobo come with a utility cd-rom? Maybe download it from your mobo's website?

From what you describe it is likely a software problem, and your computer froze up. I don't understand where you are getting your concern though.



Actually I just realized that when it is not showing the CPU temperature it is also not showing more info for the RAM (just 16GB and nothing else) and no motherboard temperature. So maybe it is something related to the motherboard, if anything at all?

(30 minutes after writing the things above)

Okay, I think I learned most of my problems. In start I was trying to find something with Asus' name for mobo utility program. Turns out it was called AI Suit. Inside of it I found some another power saving shit. It is what probably put my PC to sleep. But then the question would if I didn't wait long enough for my PC to wake up before hard resetting it or what.

My CPU-Z results are basically the same as in here https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/amd-ryzen-5-1600-review,9.html

Around an hour ago I did get the no CPU temperature thing on Speccy and others, but since then I couldn't replicate it to see if the Ai Suit program would also not show temperate.

The only thing probably left is the RAM problem from here >>819107 I forgot to mention that the XMP profile sets the voltage at 1.4 and the bios makes it in purple colour. It is suppose to run at 1.35 for 15-17-17-35, which I am not getting anyway.

The fan on my laptop won't stop loudly spinning. Why could this be happening? I have nothing resource-heavy open that could cause this, it persists across reboots, dmesg shows nothing of obvious use. Wat do? How can I go about finding this problem?



Electronics can be defective on purchase. The industry target is something about 1%, but do you remember the xbox360 fiasco where about 10% were defective?

Either your motherboard is defective or your PSU is defective. If you want to check your RAM, run memtest86+ for a few hours, at least until a full first run of all your RAM.

When you say that sometimes you are getting readings and sometimes not, that sounds like a problem with an IC on the i2c bus of your motherboard. Not much you can do to fix that on your end except RMA and get a new one.



Disregard this, it stopped on a full shutdown.


I recently built a computer for the first time, and for some reason the thing has stopped working. For the first few days it worked fine until I made space for monitor/keyboard/mouse on my main desk but I didn't move the case itself. Here's what I have:

>Kingston SSDNow UV400 240GB ssd

>ASUS Prime B350M-A Motherboard

>Galax GeForce GTX 1060 EXOC 6GB

>AMD Ryzen 5 1600 w/ Wraith Spire

>Thermaltake 500W ATX OEM PSU

>Kingston HyperX Fury 2x4GB DDR4

It all just suddenly stopped. First it would freeze on the ASUS boot screen, now it doesn't even output an image. It worked with the monitor before I moved it on the desk.

What do you mean? Did you forget to take your meds again Steve?



If you mean secure by "even if the HDD fails my things are going to remain" then you need at least one more HDD for that job.


No such thing. And as long as you are already seeding the files, when someone requests seed for one of the changed files you will stop seeding the whole torrent because of the detected difference.


The problem is with your machine.

Probably high temps.

Try out lm_sensors.


Try selecting all folders instead.



By "the main" I did mean all. I figured it out though. It was like ~16 more GBs of a fucking hibernation file. I removed that that shit. I am thinking of decreasing the pagefile too. 16GB is to much.

that's dumb. torrents are divided in files, which in turn are divided in chunks. each of these is checksumed in the torrent file, separately. so there's no reason why a client couldn't serve some pieces but not the ones that are known to have been modified.

no dice.



Anon >>821315 had a good suggestion for anon's problem >>821239.

However, if no such option is available by default, the first solution is to get a copy of FF source, find where scaling is and set an if(0){} conditional around the image scaling part and recompile.

Or, a second solution, is writing a browser plugin that scales the text on a webpage and none of the media.

If this is beyond anon's present ability, it might work to put in a feature request on mozilla's bug tracker to state that an option should be available to choose media scaling or not. Or, perhaps someone might write the plugin.

Latest, for macfags. The "add text" option works, but SHIT design and implementation-wise. Plus, every other time I want to move the text, I move the background/original image instead. Very frustrating.



>Does it have the original 360 dashboard OS on it?

No, I upgraded to NXE when it rolled out and the manufacture date is 6/6/09. The thing has been on the shelf for probably five or six years at this point and I was looking for something to do when I noticed it again and booted it up only to remember why I shelved it.

>but what you are describing sounds more like software than hardware.

I figured that's what it was. The internals confuse me a bit, though; is the firmware in the DVD drive itself? I can't get in to check any software versions or anything, but does that matter if you're just flashing the drive and not installing a JTAG?



I never personally flashed any 360, but the DVD drive has it's own firmware and the 360 has it's own firmware like a BIOS in a PC. Basically what's happening is the firmware loads up, sets up the hardware, and then calls the bootloader to boot off of the internal storage. If there is a hard drive attached, then it calls to boot off of it. If you can take the hard drive and hook it up to a computer to write over, you might be able to copy a fresh install of the OS onto it.

From >>821866 it sounds as if the OS is corrupted and that the bootloader is failing because of that, but whoever programmed the firmware didn't account for their own incompetence, so it freezes.



Latest sounds like 3.0. There is an option in GIMP somewhere that you can change to choose if you move the active layer - the one selected in the layers window - or the layer the cursor is over. It might be in the tool options after selecting move in the tools window.

It does have a learning curve.



For Mac it's 2.8.8



>If there is a hard drive attached, then it calls to boot off of it. If you can take the hard drive and hook it up to a computer to write over, you might be able to copy a fresh install of the OS onto it.

It should still be booting to the dash even with the HDD removed though, shouldn't it?

Actually, fuck; I just double checked and post-NXE the OS was on whatever storage device you had and not the internal storage so that might be it - although I'd expect it to still at least get past the splash and give me an error message instead of just freezing, so maybe that's not it. Anyway, it's worth trying. I can't open the HDD itself because I don't have a small enough bit so I guess I'll try to hunt down some NXE files and create a bootable USB. Failing that I don't know what the fuck to do next because some precursory googling turned up no NXE files anywhere. Maybe I'll just go buy a T8 so I can open up the hard drive and hook it up to one of the unused SATA cables in my computer.

Using QEMU/KVM (with libvirt), how do I properly setup vfio-pci with my secondary on-board Marvell AHCI controller so I can passthrough my dvd/blu-ray player to a Windows VM?

I'm having issues where I think UDEV is rebinding the device to the ahci driver, even though i've set it up the same way as other IOMMU groups I've successfully passed through (my GTX 1050ti). I've even tried pci-stub then rebinding to vfio-pci before starting the VM, but no matter what I do if I have the Marvell controller passed the VM hangs; assuming because something did a rebind to the ahci driver...

I've also tried the virtio-scsi device, and installing the virtio-scsi drivers in Windows. This was the closest to working as I got: it would pass through disc information like title and size, but still wouldn't play.



And what would be the best way to encrypt the disk? Bearing in mind that if possible, I don't want to have to slam in a long and secure password every single time I want to move or open a file on said disk if that's avoidable.



if you're using linux, cryptsetup is the best way to go. you make a partition, encrypt it, open it when you want to use it, close it when you're done.

I block ads associating the URL to in the hosts file. Should I use or something else instead? Also, when using tor or i2p those URLS won't get blocked right?



for low latency the rt kernel is best.

I built a Ryzen 1400 build.

When I turned it on, system stays on but nothing else happens. No video signal at all.

My board is Gigabyte A320M-HD2

It's not the GPU, not the PSU, board and CPU are new. Which led me to think it was the RAM.

1st pic is my RAM stick

2nd pic is the compatibility list issued by Gigabyte for my board

3rd pic is AMD's DDR4 compatibility list for Ryzen

So... bottom line. My system doesn't work because my RAM isn't compatible with neither my motherboard nor Ryzen.

Is that what it is?



I'll assume it's uefi.. Does uefi need ram to work? If it was bios I would say if that's not displaying then the board is at faulty, not surprising as gigabyte are dog shit.



Take everything out except





boot computer. It should turn on. Those are required to boot and use the computer for diagnostics.


File: d45dfc5acc9a8a8⋯.png (26.11 KB, 1063x655, 1063:655, Screenshot-2017-11-18 GA-A….png)


This is what it says for the BIOS on the pic. I'm not sure if the board really is faulty.


I've tried to boot it on without the stick placed, but I don't get beeps from the mobo speaker.



How many sticks of RAM do you have?

Are you sure everything is seated well?

Take everything out.

If you have onboard graphics, use that, if not leave in the GPU.

Only put in 1 stick of RAM.

Plug in monitor and keyboard.

Turn on.

It should boot just fine.

The only reason it won't boot is if you have too much RAM or some weird configuration (only 3 slots filled when it needs a config of 2 or 4 or something) or you have the RAM in the wrong slot or channel and the motherboard doesn't see it.


File: 2cda544dfe4fabc⋯.png (128.09 KB, 707x1533, 101:219, Screenshot-2017-11-18 Patr….png)


It's just that one model. Tried different slots, tried without. Nothing. Just keeps turning on and no signal.

Like I said, my stick doesn't appear to be Ryzen compatible. This is a list of compatible sticks published by the brand themselves.

Again, the motherboard is brand new, so I strongly doubt I got a faulty one.

Seems like I will have to go check to see what the issue is in that case, since I only have this one stick.



Hope you get your problem fixed. If the board is brand new, why not swap it while under warranty?

I think it might be the mobo, though.

I took off the ram, the GPU, disconnected drives, pretty much just left it only with the CPU on.

No beeps.

The speaker is supposed to be hooked up here, right? I haven't heard a single beep on any attempt I've made.




>The speaker is supposed to be hooked up

Yes. Make sure it's hooked up with the right polarity.

You need RAM and some video card (onboard or GPU) for the computer to boot. In POST it will error out because of a missing keyboard.

Are you putting the RAM in slot 1 of channel 1?

Yeah. Has the same icon as the one that I download from asus' site. I can't install that one either any more.

Hi dudes!

Had anyone used OpenVPN 2.4+ with elliptic curves instead of RSA? Is it worth it?

I'm asking because repositories of Ubuntu 16.04 only have OpenVPN 2.3.x at the moment, and I don't know if it's worth the trouble to get the latest version instead of this.

As far as I understand, EC can do faster handshakes in less round trips at the same level of security, compared to RSA? (this could benefit clients who have shit connection)

or this is horse shit and it's okay to use RSA for now?

hey guys, I have a js assignment. I need to do a bunch of stuff, but I dont know how to advance with one of them. I need to hide characters within loaded images, specifically in the pixels.

I can load the image into a canvas and get the rgba values, as jpegs aren't transparent the alpha value is always 255, so I could modify that to fit in the hidden characters, the question is, will those changes remain when the user downloads the file?(they should be able to decode it later so it has to be saved to their computers).



Just test it and see.

Set the alpha of all pixels to 128, then download the image. If the changes remain it's easy to tell.



Yes, but it would be better to disable the service and download the offline installers and only activate the update service while installing them and be disconnected from the internet while doing so.

Anytime I've looked for a way to solve this by myself I have come up with nothing.



If you're on Windows, see if it's possible with Autohotkey. I hear it can do a lot of things.

If you're on Linux, you can probably set something up with xbindkeys and xinput. I would recommend using a keybinding, not the pressing and releasing of a mouse button, because it needs to launch a new process every time because the unix philosophy is kind of terrible.




This looks like it will work, thanks.

I may be retarded but where does it list a client? This one? He said he was stopping development.

ah, I didn't click through to see that it was just a github without even downloads of previous builds.

well the original is still a shell script. If you get cygwin or another unix environment for Windows, you should be able to run it directly once you've got the prereqs like gpg.


So I have a python script and pretty much every method is defined globally, but two classes that call the global methods.

I was considering moving my global methods into their appropriate classes, but kind of clueless as to how to set everything for those classes, so now I'm wondering if it's even necessary.

At what point does it become practical to move global methods into a class, and how many methods is TOO many methods?



(functions defined for classes are usually called methods, free-standing functions are just called functions. By "global method", do you mean function?)

There are almost certainly situations in which a class with the number of methods your classes have is reasonable. That doesn't mean that they're reasonable numbers for your particular situation. It's possible that it's best not to have classes at all.

Can you explain what your classes do?



"I want to move these functions into some classes." is a bad desire. Get rid of that first. If your program would benefit from having some other design, you should start with that design. If you've gotten some code-smell type feedback, "you have too many functions, your code isn't very OO", it isn't enough to try and respond to each item of feedback; you should look and see what you're missing, that led to it. And probably what you're missing is a mastery of Python's OO constructs. With that, you'd tend to think more in directions that use them, and you would have a different design.

Obligatory: Python sucks though. Try Nim.



I was under the impression that function was used synonymously with method and that outside a class made it a global method while it was a private method inside of a class.

The classes as they exist now are probably superfluous, because they call my global functions, which is kind of a function looping through calling a function calling other functions...

I mainly have numerous functions just for the sake of readability, where I can jump to the particular function I had trouble with and quickly figure out my mistake.

The classes I have made threaded, so maybe that's the only benefit that I have to them, but I haven't tried just threading the function outside of the class. I'm still trimming the fat of my script, but it's still 213 lines.


I was never really into OOP, but then I guess I never had a project big enough that I would consider breaking it up into lots of tiny modules to be necessary.



>I was under the impression that function was used synonymously with method and that outside a class made it a global method while it was a private method inside of a class.

Maybe in Javaish languages that are built around OOP. It's best for many Python programs not to use classes at all.

Can you try to describe the problem your program tries to solve, and what your classes are? If I have an instance of one of your classes, what does it represent?


Did the Firefox "update" fuck up user scripts too? The bar at the top doesn't look the way it should and is missing things like a post count. Greasemoney is still there but no user scripts section. Are those done for?



>Any advice?

Did you try drinking alcohol?



You need to update Greasemonkey to the WebExtensions version. There's a link on their site. I couldn't update it without uninstalling it first, but that might be fixed by now.

Some userscripts may break with the new version. I switched to Tampermonkey, which is currently a bit more reliable.



Didn't quite work. Reinstalling Greasemonkey wiped out Pashe's 8chanX script and attempts to reapply it (normally by clicking a link) just takes me to the raw .js file instead. How do I install it onto Greasemonkey manually?



My program is a digital soundboard that maps mp3 files to certain keys, so I have 6 functions to initialize the frontend (ncurses), and handle keyboard input, a 7th function is just for playing the files

the one class calls the function for playing sounds, the other class calls a function that is wrapping more functions for the keyboard stuff

then both classes are added to an array and a for loop starts them in my main function



Webextions are shit and cant access abou:addons so your scripts will never be there again. I dont know the new greasmonkey, but try going to its addon entry and clicking on options.



There is no "Options" button. Strange thing is that I installed the 4chanX script (yes I visit both, but sparingly) and that auto-installed just fine.



Can you add a toolbar button in customize and then click it?



If you're talking about adding a Greasemonkey button on the front, then yes I did that. No, there's no option to manually add a script.









So yes, I think the mobo is dead.

Do all that again, but put your 1 stick of RAM into Slot 1 of Channel 1 and put in your GPU. Those are necessary.


Linux question.

Why do people and menuconfig say a preemptible kernel lowers latency?

What I'm imagining is, the kernel might get preempted when handling input instead of executing whenever, and on modern computers the kernel uses very little cpu time anyway.

The preemption are obviously not put in the parts handling input, but into the ones that cause latency, like system calls that may take long enough to be noticeable.

Classes describe objects. What kind of objects do your classes describe?

Do they describe objects at all? If not, you probably shouldn't have used classes.

You can split things into separate files/modules and import them if organization is your goal.



The classes really aren't describing anything I suppose, I only have them because I assumed classes to be necessary to make threaded functions.

I just don't really know good practices from bad, but I'd rather reduce inefficient code above all else.

Spent a while refactoring so that I wasn't calling global variables in every function but rather passing them to functions from 1 that global is called.



>I only have them because I assumed classes to be necessary to make threaded functions

nope, that has nothing to do with reality



Yup you're right, just removed the classes and put threadname = threading.Thread(target=func())

and it accomplished the same thing.

Removed a bit of code meant to clean up the terminal after the curses frontend dies too, curses.wrapper does all the necessary cleanup so it was redundant.

Down to 198 lines just with that bit of cleanup.

How to install .tar programs? I'm running Linux Mint.



You need to use `tar xv file.tar` to extract it. Usually there is a `config` file. If there is, sometimes you can type `./config help` to get a list of configuration items. If you want to use default or not read the README and INSTALL texts, just use `./config`. After that type `make` to compile the software. To install into configured or default paths type `make install` after `make`. Does that make sense to you?



Those picture aren't of any help at all. The graphics card slot is either PCI Express or AGP.

Take out the card, and compare pictures of the pins to pictures online to find out which type you have.

Is it normal for Firefox 57 to have different cookies for every tab in private browsing?



There's usually a better way. Which program are you trying to install?



> better way

are you saying package managers? If the package doesn't exist in anon's repo, then anon needs to learn how to configure and compile software from source. Then figure out how to handle writing scripts for anon's preferred package manager. Anon needs to know how to compile from source anyways. WHy not learn now?



Perhaps it is available in their repo. Perhaps it's available in a PPA. Perhaps there's a .deb on the official site and they didn't know it would work because it only said "Ubuntu". Perhaps it's packed as Flatpak. Perhaps the tarball doesn't contain the source code, but a binary they can double click.

It's atrocious that compiling from source is considered normal. It shouldn't be the norm. It actually isn't necessary for many people - the only program currently on my system I've compiled from source is a cutting-edge version of Emacs.

If it turns out they don't need to compile this particular program from source then I think it's better if they don't.



If you can log in as administrator in safe mode, you can reset individual passwords for users. This only works if your users are not part of a network group, where their login data is not local.

Find out if that's the case, and if not try logging in as administrator to reset the user's password, if that fails I highly recommend hiren's bootcd since it has numerous tools for removing/modifying and bypassing the password.

I have an account in an office network where I get a few GB of storage space. I can choose any computer I like, however I must save everything on a drive called S: or everything gets lost the moment I log out. When I shut down and then reboot a computer it seems to take forever because it is deleting its OS and everything else on C: and then downloading Windows 7 from a central server. I want some programs to start automatically at certain times and when I log in but it deletes all scheduled tasks and everything I put into the autostart folder.



Depends. What's your operating system? Try to install the ESR version.

You can probably install 8chan X if you switch to Tampermonkey. What are your other issues with Firefox 57?





watch this video


if this is not exactly what you need there are many more videos just like this or even better on youtube. just type "change graphics card" in the search field. I picked the one you see at random.


What program should I use to open .SWF files? I cant open the files downloaded from swfchan.



What's your operating system? What's your browser?



Windows 7. And I mean using a program to open files without using browser. Also, I cant open neither of the .swf files in the saved carpet when using Firefox, BTW, I have just tested it.


>Hook up second monitor

>It works

>Think it's causing a problem though

>Disconnect it on Display settings to test

>Resolve issue, turns out there was nothing wrong

>Now windows refuses to detect the monitor again

Windows 8, anybody have any ideas?



It's best to open .swf files in your browser. You can do that even if you downloaded them.

If Firefox does not work for .swf files, Chrome might.

A stand-alone flash player exists but I would not recommend it.



Thanks. Question for everyone else:

How reliable/safe is Hirens BootCD? Has anybody had any experience with it? Looks simple enough to use judging by the video https://vimeo.com/32851190


What's with the massive influx of winfags? Did they finally find this place only to ruin it?


if you're on laptop it's probably shit mobo


>How do I rollback to Firefox 56?

My advice is to rollback to Firefox 27 which is Palemoon. Everything just werks.



It's probably a few reboots that fixed it.

There's probably trapped electrons in your device.

Try removing the battery then holding the power button for about a minute.


How do I completely degoogle a mobile phone?




Flash a ROM without GAPPs



Have a bat file in the root directory of the S: drive to start all these processes. The only thing you have to wait for is the explorer window to open. If autoexec is enabled, you could put your flash drive in and have it run the bat file.




You could ask the system administrator to allow startup scripts for your user account.



The shit's outdated, but who gives a shit when you're only using it for a short period of time and repairing computers? If there were bugs and you are so paranoid about it look for the latest release version and search bugs on that version. It has worked well for me so far.



Windows 7 Ultimate. As with everyone, much of my add-ons don't work, some of which managed to somewhat automate things like the add-on bar and Rikaisama. And I swear, uploading batches of pics takes much longer.




Thanks, techies.


My Debian install got fucked up on my T420 laptop. What GNU/Linux distro should I go with? Another install of Debian? or should I try something new.



Plan 9 BITCH



If Debian works for you just go with that. It's a really solid distro that balances between autism and handholding.

How did it get fucked up?



Tried to upgrade from Jessie to Stretch. 10K package upgrades fucked my DE up ;-;



In which way?



lol, dunno. When I signed in, it was just a black screen. I might just stick to Deb tho. 314chan's server runs on it, and I basically live and breath Debian so ye



First I'd like to thank this anon, hirens bootcd worked like a charm. Thanks a bunch, mango.


Well do you have a more up to date alternative?

In other news, after 3 years of looking I finally found a replacement motherboard for my smashed laptop. Picked it up through a local ebay and everything was looking up, but now when I got home and started the replacement process, I noticed that it's missing the GPU chips (and it has a weaker CPU, but that doesn't matter because the old one is undamaged). So my question is: is it possible to rip these 3 chips off of my old mobo and slap them onto the new one I suspect not, and even it were, I don't even have a welder of any kind? Do I swallow my pride and go ahead with the gpu-less laptop? Or do I return it to the guy and wait another indeterminate amount of time until a new motherboard appears on the radar?

Instead of changing tags in the music files themselves, just use a music player that stores metadata for its library/playlists separately. Most players, like Banshee, can do that.


Is there a functional 8chan archive anywhere?


I have a laptop that I would like to play video games on, but I don't want to use Windows. Is there a way to do PCI Passthrough on a laptop? If not, would dual booting Wangblows affect the security of my Linux installation?



What do you need?


So I formatted a 64GB microSD card using something called SDFormatted V4.0. I've used this software many times in the past, even on the same card in question. After removing the card from my PC, it's now unreadable. PC doesn't detect it, phone doesn't detect it, 3DS doesn't detect it. I tried cleaning the pins with alcohol but it didn't work.

Is there any way I can unfuck this thing?

Can someone link me to a good guide on unfucking windows 10, getting rid of the useless shit and spyware etc. anything that makes it more useful would also help.

I'm upgrading from windows 7 eventually due to kinects 2 only working on windows 8 and 10, need it for motion capture for my game development.


File: d835f4a3375a6aa⋯.jpg (39.94 KB, 512x384, 4:3, neverball-screenshot.jpg)

When I play Neverball, I can hear the hard drive writing about twice a second, and when this happens, the game freezes momentarily. This is only when I'm controlling the ball, not when playing replays. It is very irritating to my eyes. This started happening well after I last updated Neverball, so the change occurred in something else.

I'm running Arch Linux.

Can someone tell me how to fix this issue? It's very annoying, and I want to play Neverball without this jumping. ;_;



Do you know what files are being written or by who? iotop might help.


Going to start a forum. Gonna use phpBB.

I need to view a thread that was recently deleted.



Which board? Which thread?

I decided to put it together anyway, a slower laptop is better than no laptop. But it doesn't work. I put it back together using all the same other parts and followed this assembly guide to a t:


It simply won't turn on, absolutely no reaction when I plug it in and press the power button (with or without inserted battery). What could be wrong? If it's impossible to say, then I'll just give up and return this motherboard, wait for another to pop up. Yes, the battery is probably dead, yes, the power supply is functional, it was not attached when my laptop was damaged.



never mind found the fix ;)

put the RAM into the other slot


A processor in my ancient computer broke and I bought a new one. I put it in but nothing is displayed on the monitor. The processor works since it's getting hot, the fan works, DVD-ROM and hard drive work, but nothing is displayed. I've done all the usual solutions - replaced RAM, video card, cables, everything. But it's still not displaying anything. Anyone have ideas? Interestingly, the USB keyboard does not appear to be detected.



No replies?



Are you sure the CPU is compatible?



I just checked. You're right, it's not compatible. The speed is too low (1700 when 2000 is the lowest compatible). Too bad I didn't bother to check that before. Thanks anyway.

So I built my PC some near 10 years ago and would like to know if I should upgrade soon. Can't even play Nier: Automata. Not asking for what new parts I should get, but if I should start saving to upgrade some potentially outdated parts. I have not started overclocking my GPU yet.



I played nier on a phenom 965 and a GTX970. but it's not that optimized so that game isn't a good example.

a better gpu would hold you over for a bit.

>that HDD

get an ssd, even a cheap 128GB $50 one is worth it for the OS and a couple smaller games. just make sure your board is on AHCI otherwise you'll bottleneck the SSD bad.



Much appreciated



Never mind someone saved it on archive.fo and shared it with me.

What were you going to propose?



I keep a personal archive of a few boards.


This is going to sound incredibly retarded, but please bear with me:

1. If a CPU has an HK at the end of it (i.e. Quad-Core i7 7820HK) it means that it it's unlocked, correct?

2. If a CPU is unlocked, it means it allows for itself to be overclocked, correct?

3. Does overclocking have any negative effects? If so, what are they?

Is there a way to remove this black screen flickering while opening/closing programs? I'm using AMD/AMDGPU driver.



Check your compositor configuration. I think it has to do with your wayland setting.



Even without compositor I get this black screen flickering.



If you're not using wayland then check your xorg config in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ Go look for gentoo or arch wiki guide, you should know how to tinker and adjust the setting to what is necessary.


This probably seems like a dumb question, but I would like to remote desktop from my GNU/Linux laptop to my workplace's Windows machine (company policies), but I don't know which preferably libre on my end software could I use, nor if it is possible at all. I know it's possible from Windows to Gahnoo, but no idea from Gahnoo to Windows. Should I just install a virtual machine and use Microsoft's remote desktop program?

TUI is not an option btw. It's fucking Windows after all.




> 1. If a CPU has an HK at the end of it (i.e. Quad-Core i7 7820HK) it means that it it's unlocked, correct?

I believe you mean something else rather than HK, anyway yes.

> 2. If a CPU is unlocked, it means it allows for itself to be overclocked, correct?

Unlocked just means the end user has a greater level of control over the speed of their CPU. You are describing trubo, which is generally built into every CPU that allows it to increase CPU clocks if temps and voltage are within the acceptable levels.

> 3. Does overclocking have any negative effects? If so, what are they?

Mainly increased power draw and reduced life span.


All right, here's my problem: I updated Firefox to version 56 a while back. Some time between v52 and v56, they made some sort of major change to how browser history is stored in places.sqlite. Now, I would like to either downgrade to v52 ESR or move on to Pale Moon entirely. I want to take my current browsing history with me. The problem? I can't seem get either of them to read browsing history from this reorganized places.sqlite file.

Does anyone happen to know if I could edit an sqlite file to make it conform to a previous standard? The browser history is there, these older versions of Firefox and Palemoon just don't understand how to access it.


How does offline (cold) monero wallets work? How can someone send transactions to that address if it was never recorded on the blockchain?
