I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

I'm terribly sorry for interjecting another moment, but what I just told you is GNU/Linux is, in fact, just Linux, or as I've just now taken to calling it, Just Linux. Linux apparently does happen to be a whole operating system unto itself and comprises a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Most computer users who run the entire Linux operating system every day already realize it. Through a peculiar turn of events, I was misled into calling the system "GNU/Linux", and until now, I was unaware that it is basically the Linux system, developed by the Linux project.

There really isn't a GNU/Linux, and I really wasn't using it; it is an extraneous misrepresentation of the system that's being used. Linux is the operating system: the entire system made useful by its included corelibs, shell utilities, and other vital system components. The kernel is already an integral part of the Linux operating system, never confined useless by itself; it functions coherently within the context of the complete Linux operating system. Linux is never used in combination with GNU accessories: the whole system is basically Linux without any GNU added, or Just Linux. All the so-called "GNU/Linux" distributions are really distributions of Linux.

It's time to face the facts. Richard Stallman is nothing more than a whining, overly obese autistic manbaby who has not done anything beneficial for the computing OR technology world in the past 20 years. Seriously. Name something that RMS has done after 1995 besides bitching, crying, and moaning about bullshit that does not matter, or making some retarded, incomprehensible speech.

He demands that Linux be called GNU/Linux. That is fucking insane. The only reason GNU, GPL, and FSF are still a THING is because of Linus and the invention of Linux. If anything, Stallman should rename GNU to Linux/GNU, because without Linus, the GNU, GPL, and FSF would not be a thing anymore.

Stallman still has the fucking gonads to act like he's superior to everyone else. Saying shit such as "I'm not glad he's dead, but I'm glad he's gone" right after Steve Jobs' death. What an asshole. Stallman has not even programmed a single line of code since 2008, that was AFTER he essentially stopped in 1992.

He should be fucking grateful Linus stepped in to save his ass, and even allowing him to take partial credit for his achievements. If it wasn't for Linus, he would be nothing, he would probably be dead in a Burger King dumpster right now.

Besides, what has he ever even done? He claims to have written eMacs, but in reality he actually cloned gosmacs (the first eMacs that was made for UNIX). He didn't even write 50% of the code in eMacs.

You might say he wrote GCC and GDB, but the truth is that he initally wrote the C compiler, but now the vast majority for the same compiler is done by contributors.

He's a washed up, morbidly obese man who tries to stay relevant by having these retarded arguments that are similar to those found in the Soviet Union. Face it GNU/Freetards, Richard Stallman is a fat dickhead, and the only reason his name is still in the books is because of Linus's achievements.

No, I don't have such file, but I will look into this. The problem is, vim respected my terminal colors even without this file, but now it doesn't.
I actually compiled my terminal with true color support, and set 'termguicolors' in my vimrc, but now vim uses it's own colorscheme. But htop still respects terminal scheme.
Use this colorscheme
That sets everything to text color, except comments, which are not part of my terminal colorscheme and some weird shade of blue.

The name "Linux" says X and "GNU/Linux" say Y.
Usually nobody would give a wet shit about a name, and I agree that Linux actually sounds cooler, but the point is, the name "Linux" is backed up with corporate shills, botnet and cancer companies who force "Open Source" instead of Free Software and "Linux" instead of "GNU with Linux". Their goal is to silence the origin, the culture, the roots of our community for the sole purpose of making some sheckles. While making some bucks isn't bad, it's bad when it forces cancer like spyware and malware ontu us. The "Linux" folks, doesn't give a shit. And that's basically the reason why the whole software revolution stopped and we're stuck with proprietary drivers and cpu botnet. Because we stopped caring, because we listened to /r/linux and we see proprietary software in GNU/Linux as an average rather than something polluting the air of our roots: Freedom.

1.5 The role of a boot loader
=============================

The following is a quotation from Gordon Matzigkeit, a GRUB fanatic:

Some people like to acknowledge both the operating system and
kernel when they talk about their computers, so they might say they
use "GNU/Linux" or "GNU/Hurd". Other people seem to think that the
kernel is the most important part of the system, so they like to
call their GNU operating systems "Linux systems."

I, personally, believe that this is a grave injustice, because the
_boot loader_ is the most important software of all. I used to
refer to the above systems as either "LILO"(1) (*note Role of a
boot loader-Footnote-1::) or "GRUB" systems.

Unfortunately, nobody ever understood what I was talking about; now
I just use the word "GNU" as a pseudonym for GRUB.

So, if you ever hear people talking about their alleged "GNU"
systems, remember that they are actually paying homage to the best
boot loader around... GRUB!

We, the GRUB maintainers, do not (usually) encourage Gordon's level
of fanaticism, but it helps to remember that boot loaders deserve
recognition. We hope that you enjoy using GNU GRUB as much as we did
writing it.

Asher Martin

The expression “the Linux kernel” can easily be misunderstood as meaning “the kernel of Linux” and implying that Linux must be more than a kernel. You can avoid the possibility of this misunderstanding by saying or writing “the kernel, Linux” or “Linux, the kernel”.

If you are genuinely interested in getting work done and you need Linux. Use Ubuntu. It's the most popular distro among software developers. It has a heap of packages/.debs, support and documentation, big community, and backing from a serious company (Canonical).

If you aren't serious. Like you don't actually do any serious programming or work professionally distro hop all you want. It seems like this might be what you are after since you've posted some chink cartoons.

Jordan Hernandez

Sid doesn't need backported security patches because it already gets those updates via the normal rolling repo.
You don't know how security works right? The security team will push patchen when they are available, which is mostly even before the actual developers of packageXY are arsed to pull them.

Meanwhile on Arch you have the perfect balance where stuff gets pached right away - and users get these security patches right away.

Remember the ffmpeg network 0day?
gentoo: 5 months
debian: 2 months
arch: 1 day

I'd right now claim that Arch is the most secure distro around.

I'd right now claim that Arch is the most secure distro around.

Only when you ignore the fact that people use Arch because of the (((unofficial))) and (((insucure))) AUR, which are not (((offical))) packages and have therefore (((no security))).

tl;dr Arch is about building a fragile system for the solve purpurse of having shipped git clone wrappers so you can install programs written by literally who from allover the internet.

AUR is not the basis of Arch. Furthermore, the AUR much more secure than its comparable systems, since the user can see exactly how everything will be installed. I can't see how a diligent, security-minded user could ever find fault with the AUR.

Talking about contributions is their game because the only argument they have is this twisted idea that somehow the "most important part" of something is supposed to automagically rename things.
It's a strawman argument and you shouldn't even stoop to their level.

The project was originally called the GNU system. Unless Linus Torvalds formally announces that he's making his own project to build his own system and calling it "Linux" then as far as I'm concerned it's case shut. It's GNU, through and through. Doesn't even matter if distros end up being 0% GNU software, until someone formally forks the project it's still a part of the "GNU project" because others have been contributing to it.

I've been rotating through desktops on my hardware (with Manjaro spins), and my experience has been...subpar. Everything about the underlying Manjaro system is rock-solid, but the desktops have all sorts of fuckery I'm not okay with.

KDE bugs out when swapping appearance options all the time; animations are janky and compositing causes all kinds of fuckery.

GNOME was mostly okay, but felt quite heavy and crashed a lot; it recovered in less than a second, but I still don't know why it was crashing, and it would blank all my browser tabs until I reopened them.

XFCE is mostly great, but there's horrible screen tearing and it does not handle sleep mode well. When I hit the power button, it always throws some kind of warning about an application blocking auto-suspend; and now, it's started coming up completely locked when I wake it, with some message to wait until the session unlocks (to no avail). Pressing the power button again just initiates a shutdown.

Is there a goddamn stable desktop out there? Should I got with Manjaro MATE? Cinnamon? Move to Ubuntu MATE or Artful? Can I get GNOME to stop crashing all the fucking time for seemingly no reason?

btw i have an nvidia card

I don't know, but it's been true of KDE for years since I first tried it. Every time I give it a fair shake, it's buggy as hell. And then the interface bloat (especially with all the context menus) just drives me insane.

That's great for my laptop (which has i3), but I don't care for it on my desktop. I want a stable, simple DE that works, that's it.

There are lots of components in a distro from neither project. Not giving them credit is simple not fair.
You are commiting the fallacy called "begging the question" by basing you "argument" on the premise that naming things is or should be in any way related to a things components and your basing the importance of said components on an unspecified metric (which is probably just because you are repeating what someone else said).

MBR has a limit on the number of partitions unless you create and extended partition and doesn't scale well with overside hard drives. GPT doesn't have those limitations. You could also skip a partition table and directly format the drive as ext4

From a code level, no. The problem is mostly the attitude of the developers. They break shit and then demand that other people work around it rather than unbreak their shit.
I think it's also their philosophy, which throws out important UNIX principles, like program should one thing only and do it well. Poettering has said that Linux devs should break UNIX compatibility. So recommend that devloper should read the Linux Programming Interface, but ignore the POSIX material.

Cooper Garcia

Set it first to boot in the BIOS? If it's the boot partition, then I would imagine so.

Austin Baker
Austin Baker

Grub2's menu arrangement depends on how grub.cfg was generated / edited. Typically Linux entries are at the top with newer kernels further up in the alternatives submenu and other os at the bottom. You can however just configure which entry gets booted by default and how many seconds that takes.

Asher King
Asher King

I don't really know what you mean by setting the GNU/Linux partitions first.
You don't have to do any work to move around existing Windows installations. Just install GNU/Linux and the Windows bootloader should be overwritten with GRUB. Other than that it doesn't matter what order anything is in.

On the other hand if you're saying you have neither OS installed then again, the actual order of the partitions on the disk don't matter (except for the bootloader in general but that should be automatic on most installers) although it is recommended to install Windows first and then GNU/Linux on top of it so that GRUB ends up being the final bootloader

Noah Butler
Noah Butler

Just to clarify in case it didn't come across. GRUB by default always gives you the choice of boot options, so as long as that's your bootloader you don't have to worry about it just going straight into one OS or the other without asking you which. That's why you want to make sure you end up with GRUB and not the Windows bootloader.

Wyatt Hughes
Wyatt Hughes

Okay, I just realized I've managed to phrase it horribly. I have to storage drives, one of them has windows 10 and the other has linux. If I set the Linux drive first, will GRUB come up on boot and give me an option to boot to windows or will it boot to linux directly?

Alexander Roberts
Alexander Roberts

If I set the Linux drive first
as in, if I set the Linux drive to boot first in the BIOS
I'm asking this since I don't want to go into BIOS every single time I want to use one OS over the other.

Nicholas Adams
Nicholas Adams

In that case the first reply nailed it. Your BIOS determines which drive it boots from. So yes if you have GRUB on that drive and it boots you'll get a choice of which OS to boot.
Provided you have the Windows drive on your system at the time you install GNU/Linux it should be detected, and even if it wasn't detected for some reason it's a really simple fix. Basically it's all just determined by /boot/grub/grub.cfg, you just make sure that's set right and then install-grub again, piece of cake.

Josiah Foster
Josiah Foster

No you don't have to worry about that. GRUB will list all OSes it detected from all disks

i guess not, but you'd think you should know permissions and a little bit more about the system if you want to use a more enthusiast distribution.
i don't understand, how is it a pain to install debian or ubuntu

Zachary Cook

You're right. If you create the bin directory it's in there. But there is no bin directory there by default, because it's in the user's home directory.
Has babby solved his problem yet using his incredible knowledge or are you still trying to get others to solve it for you by being an obnoxious retard?

Nano has syntax highlighting. Why do you post complains without looking something as simple as that up on a web search provider?

debian installer listed the install usb as sda and pc hdd as sdb so it put grub mbr in sdb during install but the cant boot :/
ubuntu mini.iso had weird visual issues in tty after install
both had terrible video playback with mpv - probably a pkg missing or something, vlc worked tho
that's off the top of my head, i hate auto installers now :(

Look how breathtakinglz stunning the vi syntax higlighting is, and look at the blaynd disgusting nano sysntax hl, they just bothered assigning one puke color for comments and thats it

Noah Hill

Because there are no other super lightweight editors with pretty syntax highlighting and support for hotkeys like nano

Elijah Morris

It's called fontlocking you dum dum, and what kind of idiot has to learn how to use NANO. Fucking nano. It's baffling how people struggle to learn vim and emacs when there's a tutor mode for both, and here you are struggling with nano.

Debian's installer is a bitch to use. Not even Linus cares to put up with Debian's shit. It's better if you just to a stage3 install.

I have a laptop with Nvidia Optimus, I installed Arch. the nvidia-lts driver (I'm on lts kernel) and the other ones mentioned in the Archwiki Bumblebee page to emulate Optimus.
When I startx, it keeps giving me error, and looking at the log says

Using config file: "/etc/bumbleb ee/xorg.conf.nouveau

which makes it load nouveau as a driver, when I don't have it installed.
I even put Driver=nvidia or nvidia-lts in the bumblebee.conf but it keeps loading the nouveau conf.
What should I do?

Here, you can be a retard with every word having a different color in Nano.

i don't know how to do something as simple as using a premade config file

No, he expects you to spoonfeed him the answer telepathically by guessing what's wrong. Only a retard would help him now.

You don't get it do you son? nano is trash because it doesn't have all this enabled and preconfigured by default. Why should i care about an application when not even it's makers care enough about it to preconfigure it properly?
I bet you are one of those autists who compiles arch from source

That is such a fucking ridiculous thing to bitch about. That a piece of software has the capacity to do something, but doesn't do that by default for the sake of other people. The whole World doesn't revolve around you.

Neither does vi, you idiot. Have you seen how vi looks with the stock upstream settings? You are an idiot who is using a distribution which changes configuration from upstream and who isn't aware of it.
I'm not even going to address the other idiocies in your post. Stop embarrassing yourself.

Neither does vi
yes it does, that screenshot was taken in vi with default settings, it doesn't matter if the preconfig was done by the app authors or by the distro authors but it was done and works like that out of the box

i am too retarded to configure things myself
i don't understand the concept of configuration
there have to be a billion different things to please everyone

Your retardation has no scope, it's beyond imagination. The fact that you cannot comprehend the basic concept of adjusting settings to your own preference shows that you should perhaps just ask your mother to abort you now.

You're right. I'm mistaken. It was absolutely silly of us to insult you for your opinions. You're clearly in the right, here. I'm sorry for wasting your time, and I'm sorry for criticizing you. I only hope you can forgive me.

about what. i only asked a simple question - why ubuntu errors about python (when it is installed) when you wget youtube-dl in your ~/bin/ as per ytdl.org instructions and all of you niggers lost their minds fuck you

Give yourself time. Eventually you'll learn the ropes.

And the problems you don't, well, record the solutions in a text file.

However, if you're wasting 'hours' doing this, something is really wrong. Most stuff is about searching for five minutes.

run them

lubuntu could be alright. If not LXDE you can just logout and use just openbox. It comes with few nice programs.

Whatever distro you choose remember to also install TLP

system breaks
Not really, unless you're running commands like

sudo rm -rf
from the first site you saw because the internet is full of shit. (This site is proof of that.)

Usually, when you want to solve a problem (not just with Linux, but everything), you're supposed to look three solutions or so, so obvious trolling becomes obvious.

Reinstalling the system is 30min top in a potato like mine.

Is LXDE noob-friendly? I never used it to be honest.

Also, does Ubuntu still come with that software centre? I want to teach the kid how to use Synaptic and [hopefully] apt, but the centre might be a good crotch at the beginning.

Help me please, I've been working on this for hours but can't find a way to fix it online. Nothing has worked so far. I own an x131e with Lubuntu on it. When I install the additional drivers for broadcom 802.11 (wireless card) it works, but once I reboot my internet no longer works. How do I fix this?

Easton Lopez

I guess this is a common thing for laptops with broadcom wireless cards. I'm giving up and just using xubuntu in hopes it'll work.

Jonathan Wood

It won't dude, it's all to do with the kernel. Firstly, see what exact chipset your wireless card is, then check the drivers here
