Welcome to zzz/tech/
Rules
0. All global rules apply: https://zzzchan.xyz/rules.html
1. /tech/ is a primarily SFW board. NSFW is only allowed if spoilered.
2. Keep the topics related to technology and computing.
3. When making a thread, put some effort into the OP. Low quality threads and template threads will be bumplocked. Some low quality threads that have already been bumplocked can be deleted if too much fills up the catalog.
4. For the QTDDTOT thread and the meta-thread, there can be only one unless the reply limit has been reached. If the previous thread is at the reply limit, anyone can recreate those threads. Thread quality rules do not apply to these threads.
5. Low quality shitposting will be met with DELetion or all files in the post being unlinked (frogposting, wojaks, >he doesn't use [insert thing here], Reddit logo spam, etc.). Otherwise, shitposting is allowed but try not to derail threads.

Posting recommendations
1. Try keeping most of your tech support questions, software recommendations, consumer advice, and other questions that don't deserve threads in the QTDDTOT thread. If there is a specific thread for your question, try asking there instead for a faster response.
2. Try not to ask questions that can be found on any search engines. You will most likely be told to search more and not receive an answer.

tmp note: Code formatting is now [code][/code]

Thread dedicated to Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread
(but are worth asking)

Before asking a question here, please search the web first or put in effort towards answering your own question. If you put in effort but you still can't find the solution, feel free to ask here.

If you are looking around for useful applications/programs, see >>531

Probably people are trying to get rid of the habit of using "google" as a verb. Of course you could just say "search the internet" or "internet search" but shilling technologies you like is always quite tempting.

Some time last year this article was written: https://justine.lol/ape.html (archived: https://archive.ph/4yqR3 )
It basically says that command line programs written for Windows can also run on Linux with a tiny emulator, provided the architecture is x86_64. The topic is out of my field of knowledge, however I wanted to ask if there's any potential in this? Can the emulator be expanded upon to replace Wine in any capacity?
I couldn't get the emulator to work by the way
Replies: >>1648
>>1647
It's not exactly an emulator (that emulator should be only required if you run it on non-x86 from what I understood), you have to recompile the program from source (and maybe change it a bit), and it emulates the linux syscall interfaces on other OSes (like windows), and not the other way round, so it's more like cygwin/msys, and not wine.
Wine is a hueg software, if you want to support every idiosyncrasy wangblows has, that's going to be a long and tedious task (even without any gui support). You might be able to write a little emulator that can run hello world complexity apps, but if you want to run real windows apps, expect to spend 10+ years on it.

>If you pick your programming language based on how small the statically linked hello world is you can't go wrong.
If everything you write is on that level, sure. I don't particularly care how my compiler optimizes trivial programs because that's not what I spend most of my time on.

>He wrote a language that simultaneously provides only abstractions that cleanly and efficiently map into assembly, and provides all the useful abstractions a programmer might want.
Except for overflow flags, proper strings and arrays, advanced control flow, useful macros, precise control over data layout... If you're looking for nonsense that silently sneaked into your thoughts, look no further than the deification that C went through. C was a product of substantial poverty (take a look at the machine Unix was made for) and perfectly appropriate at the time, but it's a joke of a language outside of that context. It wasn't even particularly efficient originally, all that came through later work and often clashed with the original design - that's especially visible if you compare K&R with the shameless pilpul over undefined behavior of today.
>>1621
>If you pick your programming language based on how small the statically linked hello world is you can't go wrong.
<small automatically == better
That depends. If you are on a tiny, tiny microcontroller or sensor where size is of utmost concern then sure, that's correct. However, most of us (and the rest of the world) care more about wallclock perf. In that case, increasing the memory footprint of the image in exchange for much, much higher performance is the proper course. Either C or C++ can allow you to make these kinds of tradeoffs, but few other languages can. Assembler doesn't count b/c I don't want to spend six months of my life managing to pull off something I can do instead in two seconds with -O3

As with all engineering, there are always tradeoffs to consider, with different ramifications. The only absolute guarantee we have going in is The 2nd Law of Thermodynamics. Beyond that, it's a progression of exploration & creativity.

What happened to the creator of mpv exactly? Why did he get kicked out from his own project? What lead up to the mpv creator getting kicked out?

I posted this thread on Lainchan earlier, but I didn't get to see any replies and then when I went to check back on it, it got deleted most likely because it was offtopic despite it relating to FOSS. There is no ban message.
Please do not del this thread, janny.

>anti-traditional garbage
Being traditional would mean everything is proprietary but everything is cracked as well and the cracking itself is proprietary as well because the release groups don't want other groups to steal their shit. Damn I miss those times, a whole lot more fun than frettard bullshit. The whole GPL thing just turn people into faggots who think things like licenses and legality are actually relevant. Almost as gay as the RPG Maker community that at some point realized they can monetize their games and in turn stopped ripping SNES assets.

Bring traditional means the source is distributed with the software, which is distributed with the hardware with a manual detailed enough to modify all aspect of it. And modifications were normal instead of illegal. This was the case before proprietary software became the norm.

There is a criminal organization in Brazil using NSO Group's Pegasus to infect devices for hack for hire, to incite terrorism, blackmail people, produce illegal pornography and assist in assassinations. They also have other advanced malware, like UEFI implants and even persistent implants for Kindle and Raspberry Pi. Plus face/voice recognition on every camera and microphone they can get into, in public or private places.

Brazil won't do anything to stop them. Only the FBI, CIA and NSA can stop them.

There is also the possibility that they were engaged on the hack of Bezos' smartphone.

If you know of any security researcher who wants to reverse engineer the exploits they are using, I am more than willing to help them.

If you want a story about how they operate, I am willing to work with you to expose them.

You can install Debian or friends with linux deploy, or install Gentoo with just any terminal with chroot (if you have root access). Then install/compile a cli soulseek client (museek+ has a tui).

This. But how much can it be attributed to Stallman? He is old. Not denying that accepting trannies and fags in FSF is a terrible move, but the opponents aren't slacking off the slightest at their attempt to subvert and undermine free software. Especially when this whole SJW rainbow fag shit smells a lot like wooden oven jailbreakers.

Title gives my conclusion from empirical events I witnessed and inside info. PSP runs on the same circuit, but isn't the backdoor per se, which has been around for much longer.

The same way AMD was able to change the crypto algorithms for the Zen chip they licensed to China, they can change how the CPU behaves at any system, even those already deployed. This can also be used to sabotage any program or computation, making BadBIOS vastly nastier than Stuxnet.

American military made a grave mistake to partner with the morons of the Brazilian military, who are letting knowledge of this spread like a fire (and misusing it for petty profit and inside jobs to justify a police state). Israel, UK and France also have access, but are much more professional.
