Hey guys I was wondering if a board on making an imageboard would be a good idea? I'm not very into /tech/ stuff but I thought the knowledge would be good to have in case this site goes down.

You need to manually tell your UEFI about the .efi file.
Use efibootmgr on Linux.

The UEFI only automatically detects .efi files if they're on external storage and inside an ESP partition with a /efi/boot/bootx64.efi file (there are a few other names too), it's mandated by the standard.

Sometimes I can't access specific websites or subdomains. For example, occasionally I cannot access *.booru.org sites (booru.org itself works) and earlier today I couldn't access archive.is and its various urls. By rapidly switching between DNS servers I could kind of make some of the urls work, but they would quickly stop working but continue working if I tried accessing them through Tor. As of now, the problem has seemingly disappeared upon rebooting and I'm not sure if this affects other computers in the house.
Is there anything in my Linux installation that could be causing this? Is my ISP fucking with me? I recently installed dnscrypt but these problems predate it.
For all I know, it could also be some weird hardware issue. No matter what OS is on this machine, as of late I seem to go through wifi cards unusually fast before they all develop the same problem (my wifi simply stops working until I reboot), no matter what brand or chipset they are, and now there's this. Maybe it's time I replace this piece of shit.

For that I'd either have to install Windows again or follow one of several methods to create a HP recovery drive, which arbitrarily work or don't work depending on what specific HP computer you have, and I'd rather not fuck up my BIOS right now.
>Does OpenNIC DNS work?
I've included two OpenNIC DNS servers in my dnscrypt-proxy.toml config file.
As of now, it's this because dnscrypt-proxy is handling DNS:
options edns0
Previously it was this:
# Generated by dhcpcd from wlp6s0.dhcp
# /etc/resolv.conf.head can replace this line
# /etc/resolv.conf.tail can replace this line
>Which dhcp client?
My dhcp client is dhcpcd and I am free of systemd.
>Also check if your ISP is hijacking your DNS port traffic
Not sure how I'd test for or find that specifically, but I ran dnstraceroute with the --expert flag and it didn't flag shit.
What's the error? If it can't resolve the domain, there's some fuckery going on with the DNS, if connection refused/timeout/lost/etc the there is some problem with the connection to the site. If you can check with a different device on the same network.
Also if you use OpenNIC check the server list, some of their servers are pretty shit and stop working randomly.
If nothing helps run wireshark in the background, then look at the capture after a failure.
Isolate the problem. Disable dhcpcd's resolv.conf hook and use the two main opennic dns (182.121...., type it in resolv.conf) for a while. See if it happens again. Also make sure the browser you are using doesn't rat you out and use its own dns server.
I've used dnscrypt-proxy in the past and it has a tendency to start answering with SERVFAIL if it receives too many answers at once. Happens often to me because I have a torrent client accessing loads of tracker domains all the time. It's a long standing bug.

dnsmasq with stubby works well.
unbound breaks if your connection isn't perfect.
unwind is the only good DNS resolver I've used.
>I fixed it, turns out github not being accessible was an internet explorer issue and downloading chromium fixed that. No idea why I can't ping it
CA cert trust authority maybe, browsers have their own list which update as you use updated browsers.
update your date/time
a few minutes behind or in future can make websites shat.
next time try to use "ip neigh" and see if someone's poisoning your dns if your gateway IP is shown with a zero mac or a device that isn't what your gateway mac is (possibly from a malicious client/hacker).

otherwise try to ping your isp provided dns, or other mainstream dns and check online "is it down" services to find out if it's just your isp.
opennic is notorious for having some occasional fuck ups and downtimes, if you use linux you can set multiple dns on the settings but it does not guarantee that it will pick the live dns (happened to me before why I stopped using oppenic)

How would you reencode this video to be as visually lossless as possible but at a lower size? 
I tried reencoding it with ffmpeg's default mp4 codec can't remember if it's 265 in the newer versions but with a crf of 20 it was already over twice the size and had some quality loss, so I'm not sure I could get it lower even with options.
Replies: >>3551
>with a crf of 20 it was already over twice the size and had some quality loss
There will always be quality loss unless you do a "true" lossless encode (i.e. crf 0). Try a lossless H.264 encode and check the file size, if that's not satisfactory try a two-pass lossless VP9 encode.
Replies: >>3552 >>3553
Lossless coding will be almost surely be much larger than the original, even if it's some shit wmv, and lossy recoding will be... well, lossy. Try to play around with the settings until you find something acceptable, but don't expect miracles.
>some quality loss
I meant noticeable quality loss. 
I don't care for 1:1 frame integrity. I want to know if it's possible to reencode that video such that the file size is smaller and there's no human noticeable quality loss, or if that video is specific is just too fucky. 
I don't think that sort of video would work with webm, but I'll give it a try.
Replies: >>3554 >>3555
If you want webm, use VP9. H264/265 won't work with webm and VP9 is better than VP8.

I tried it. It looks pretty good. There's some slight encoding blur in a few intermediary frames but I'll take it for the size and format. 
I remember webm being a shit for videos with artifacts, I wonder if that was just a problem with VP8 or if the movement being mostly centralized helped ameliorate that.
Replies: >>3558 >>3559
Aw shit I forgot the audio. Thank god -c:v copy exists.
Actually even codecs evolve, even when they're constrained to a specific format, so it's possible that a VP9 codec today produces better result than it did say 5 years ago when things were more immature. But yeah, the content matters too, I once compressed 5 minutes of full HD video into 12MB webm with acceptable quality... because it was a recording of a VN, which is basically a slideshow. Try the same with a video with a lot of fast moving action, 720p and 50MB where it stopped looking complete garbage.

Probably not ebooks, but there are a couples of /pol/ redpill mega floating around.
First of all this problem could be browser specific.
Chrome, Firefox, Gecko-based, Blink-based, all of them have different interactions and may break website, also setting up the OCSP checking and verification can break a website.
>what breaks it

Here's the factors:
>DNS is down
recurring issue with opennic
>System Clock is wrong
you need to sync with a NTP provider, few minutes or seconds may break dns requests but it still depends on browser. Bad browsers will let you browse even if your clock is out of sync and this is bad.
You need your clock synced. Dual booting windows can fuck up timezones and your rtc clock so avoid that if possible. Wrong dates due to dual booting win/linux is also unhealthy for file systems since the dates will collide and may potentially break your file system if you hibernated linux, booted up windows which modified timezone/clock, and resumed linux. 
>you've been blocked
right, this is pretty uncommon but some sites block you literally
either you're in a pubic blocklist or did something stupid like portscan.
using "tor browser" user agent can also get you locked out of certain sites with automated management or because the same user agent had "abused" the website so they now block the same pattern or it's a local ddos protection
>dnssec fails https://rootcanary.org/test.html
of course this only works if you had set up dnssec,
using multiple dns providers will provide weird/mixed results from the test above which is unsafe to do and is not encouraged to do.
also, failing access over website means your dns might be forged by your either your ISP, infected router, or an infected browser (look up Superfish) that's why tor/vpn may work but everything else don't BUT this may also fail if your DNS configuration or provider is actually not working.

You can also test your dns, sometimes an ISP router or your local browser might provide a custom DNS when it fails that's why you might still be able to browse sites from other browsers but what actually happened in that scenario was your dnssec actually had failed completely and browsers that still worked may have been using a fallback.

>>>Is there anything in my Linux installation that could be causing this? Is my ISP fucking with me? I recently installed dnscrypt but these problems predate it.
>>>I've included two OpenNIC DNS servers in my dnscrypt-proxy.toml config file.
Looks like the problem. OpenNIC at least have 80% reliability or even 50% from my experience, it's only usable if you use multiple of them but from a privacy/anti-tracking standpoint it is a bad practice as it will show web services a unique DNS fingerprint.
>dnscrypt-proxy is handling DNS
This is bad since it might break other requests like NTP time updates and what you should do is have dnscrypt running over the router and not over your system, since you don't have systemd I can recommend you to do a #ntpd -gq and if it fails it means your system clock might be wrong all along and your DNS is broken.

Where do I get dirt cheap thinkpad? I can't find one that is both good and cheap, they are either sold out or too expensive for its own good. I did find one x60 for $100 but when I see guys like Luke Smith boasting that he got 4 thinkpads for $50 I lost all hope. No way I'm paying that much for one machine, not to mention the additional shipping cost that I might have to pay. I live in some third world shit hole though. Maybe I have to scout some Facebook group for used laptop in general and maybe find a thinkpad eventually? Give me some hints to find dirt cheap old thinkpad please.

Local irl second hand market, eg craiglist, garage sells. Faggots like Luke Smith got the word out and bumped the price even higher. Supply only ever decreases but every nerd larper wants one. It's too late. Got a T400 for a hundred bucks a while ago and that was the cheapest near me.
What are you doing with it? It doesn't have to be thinkpad if you are not planning to libreboot.

In general:
>t4xx, t5xx
Means laptop workstations with 14 and 15 inch screens respectively.
The xx increases with multiples of ten with every new version eg: t410 - t420 - t430 - etc
12 inch screen and overall a very portable design. xx as above. There are also versions with an "s" at the end (X220s) meaning usually some improvements on the base model.

You can easily find an x220 or t410 on ebay sub $100. x60 is pretty old and has been memed too hard. t5xx is usually pricier because people are anchored on a 15 inch screen. Imho the 14 inch is much better and in case you have never used one of the x series with the 12 inch screens, you should definitely buy one, best laptop I've ever owned.

Having said that, if you are looking for modern processors (such as i7) prices have gone up. Early 2020 I got one below 300 and one year later average price was 20% - 30% more, X2xx were still reasonably priced though.

>Luke Smith

Replies: >>3588 >>3590 >>3894
Luke and the /g/ memes made the prices go up by a lot, so don't expect any price that he mentioned to still be a possibility. Also, if there aren't as many of them in your country, then it makes sense that they are more expensive, if people still know that they are valuable. I bought mine earlier this year and paid a typical eBay price, because I wanted a laptop and my intention is for this one to be the last, and ThinkPads are not going to get any cheaper because technology will only become more invasive, crappy and evil. Anyway, you can consider looking for other computers as well and see if you get lucky. Panasonic's Toughbooks are huge and probably bulletproof, so you can one as a shield or to crack someone's skull in half. Maybe look into Toshiba Tecras. I'm not sure how comparable they are to the ThinkPads, but they have trackpoints and look kinda similar, and I have only heard people mention them a few times. Still, it's probably not nearly as easy to find parts for those if you need them. The Dell Latitude is also a thing, but they don't have real keyboards, so they are more like current laptops.

Are there any good programs that allow you to treat use microphone as an oscilloscope and view the waves with a trigger?
I don't use qtox very often, but an earlier version didn't give you the option to go into settings until after you created a profile and logged in. Then you could change to socks5 proxy over Tor. I'm assuming that the default ID had already broadcasted user IP to the DHT network. So after changing the settings, I close program, restart, create a new profile and log in. That new profile is using Tor from it's first contact with the network. No real IP info is ever attached to that ID.

But the latest version I have changed behavior. I still can't go into the network settings and proxy the connection until after I create a default ID, log in, etc. But now, if I close the program and restart, create a new ID and log in, it still connects without the proxy settings. I have to go back in and change it again. But if I log out and log in with the default ID, the proxy settings are still saved and it connects to Tor. This change in behavior seems suspicious to me or maybe I'm being too paranoid. 

What do you think?

I have an lto5 HP tape drive that was probably pulled from a tape library. Apparently there is a "security" setting that the drive needs to be authenticated with an encryption key manager library even when it is not using encryption.

I've used some low level tools such as sg3_utils to find the relevant bits in the "security protocol in/out" pages but they don't seem to be changeable through the scsi interface. Sdparm can only change specific variables of mode sense (mode pages) that are not relevant to this problem.

Also tried to flash another firmware, in case it'd reset the settings, but couldn't find one that is compatible. They've put the firmware behind a paywall on the official site ffs.

I'm planing to open the drive and look for an undocumented way to factory reset the drive.

Also, here's what I've been doing.
Pic1 is the command that I run and the output. The hex after the /dev/sg5 corresponds to the "command descriptor block" from pic 2 to get the "Data Encryption Capabilities page".

The fifth byte from the output 0x0a corresponds to the field containing the CFG_P value.
0x0a = 00001010b which means that CFG_P = 10b
would i be able to just get a two-wired one without issue?

Probably will try but I'm pretty sure that it is not only checking for presence but actually tries to communicate with the library.
Next step is to make a connector that goes into the rs-242 port, used for ADT and ACL, and then use an arduino to implement the adt-2 protocol.
Both ADT and ACL are protocols to communicate with the drive and configure it. It is the way a library interacts with the drive. ACl is proprietary though and I haven't been able to find the specification whereas for ADT there is a reference.
Replies: >>3673
The manual says the drive will think it is not connected with a library if all ACI signals are tied high. Implementing a library may not be necessary.
>The drive knows it is in a library or other ‘managed’ environment since one of the signal lines on the Automation Interface will be tied down.
>If a drive is removed from the library, it will not have the ACI signal tied low ...
Replies: >>3674
Well yeah, I'm gonna test it before I write the whole interface but the initial error was about inability to authenticate with a library even though encryption was turned off.
It may allow you to change the settings through the scsi interface if it just detects presence of a library though.
Just building the connector and connecting VCC and GND should do it.

For a specific resolution and bitrate, encode some video and do a blind test.

Why? It's pretty easy to get a ham license, and a CB license doesn't require an exam (but CB is too limited tbh).

You don't need anything fancy for CW (commonly called "morse code"). You could even get a DIY  kit. Another option is to get a used rig. You want to get a directional antenna (like Yagi-Uda antenna. See, ARRL Antenna Book. ARRL also has a book about CW.)

Yes but it's illegal without a license.

Again, wouldn't it be better (for security) to enumerate the device wanting to access the service instead of authorizing any and all devices on the network?

>Tor browser
torrc files is on /proc so I don't think it can be manually edited. It's probably better to just configure Tor browser to use an independent Tor service, so that two Tor services don't need to be run simultaneously, one for the browser and one for the network device wanting to proxy through.
Replies: >>3736
> Isn't it better to enumerate the precise address of the device running Tor? 
Well yeah but in this case we are talking about the case that the host has multiple IP addresses, for instance two nic devices, essentially a router. Usually you're gonna have only one and you can just go with the wildcard to at least test if everything works as intended. 

>Again, wouldn't it be better (for security) to enumerate the device
That's why I wrote "similar to this".

Personally I've never used it like this. Back when I was testing different secure oriented configurations I used something similar to a whonix setup where I'd ssh port forward from one machine to the other.

>torrc files is on /proc 
>It's probably better to just configure Tor browser to use an independent Tor service
I don't know how you installed. I was referring to the zip you can download from the official site. Of course it's better to run it as a service.
Why doesn't Tor support udp?

Most of them are 2D indie games/visual novels and 3D titles from the late 2000s/early 2010s. My most demanding games would be the Spyro Reignited Trilogy, Nier Replicant and all the 3D Final Fantasy games. I was thinking of a 970 but would I need to also buy a new motherboard and CPU? What should I do? Pic related are my specs

If you can afford one at current inflated prices, a 970 is good enough, yep. It will work fine with the current motherboard and CPU.
What you should be concerned about in such an old PC, is the PSU. You should make sure the power supply supports a 970 (proper wattage and auxiliary connectors). Some 970s can also be quite long and you should make sure they will fit in the case.

If you really have no idea what you're doing (as it appears to be the case from your questions and posting phone pictures instead of proper screenshots), maybe something like a 960 or a 1050ti are a safer (and cheaper) purchase. The 970 will be heavily bottlenecked by that CPU anyways.

Does your gimp support python plugins to begin with? I think 2.10 is still stuck with python2 and distros are nuking python2 support for some time now.

I think one of the ram slot in my mobo has some issue. If I stick one stick in that place it would crash my windows and even bootable usb. The error is usually something unrelated like missing critical windows file and shit, but using the other slot would fix it. However putting sticks in both slots and the bios still recognised them all, just that I couldnt boot. Maybe upgrade the mobo bios, but I couldnt find anything like that for my model. What do? Linux doesn't fix anything by the way.

>what else did ((( ((( (((they))) ))) ))) do 
The manjaro developers ((( (((forgot))) ))) to renew their SSL cert 2 years in a row. Either they are incompetent or they don't care (or both). Their official ISOs sometimes won't work.
And the whole design of Manjaro is not sane:
they take packages from Arch and """make sure that they are stable""" (i.e. they don't push the updates to their users). But because Arch is, by design, a bleeding edge distro that frequently has packages that contain bugs. Which is why it is not sane to use Arch as basis for """stable""" distro (which Manjaro claims to be). This is also the reason why you should update Arch at least weekly, if not more frequently.

I also found an interesting article https://itsfoss.com/libreoffice-freeoffice-manjaro-linux/ which proves that the distro itself is cucked:
>In the last week of July, Manjaro Linux suddenly decided to drop the popular open source productivity suite LibreOffice in favor of Softmaker’s FreeOffice.
>FreeOffice is free of cost but not open source. It is the limited version of Softmaker’s premium office suite.
The Manjaro developers formed a company, but I don't know if there is something suspicious about it (https://itsfoss.com/manjaro-linux-business-formation/).

As far as I know, Manjaro comes with an AUR helper. A beginner who doesn't know how to use Linux or bash should not use AUR. Anyone can submit a package to AUR, which means you absolutely have to review the PKGBUILD script (you are giving the author of the package ROOT access to your computer!) And there are much better AUR helpers. Instead, use rua or aurutils:
>https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/rua/ (rusted but good)
Finally, ((( (((Manjaro))) ))) doesn't really offer anything new. Noobs should just install some flavor of Ubuntu (But not vanilla Ubuntu because GNOME sucks) or someone should set up Debian stable with unattended upgrades for them. A power user should just install Arch/Artix, Gentoo, Alpine or Void. If you know the basics of sh and GNU+Lunix, you can easily install Arch or Artix, see >>3474

You can, but there's not much sense, since if you want to use the internet, you'll still need to give your clients IPv4 addresses, so IPv6 would be only usable for local network. And IPv6 is so fucking overcomplicated, it's just not worth it.
If you need more IP, just set up as your LAN, that should give you some 16 million IP addresses. (Unless you have to VPN somewhere that uses the same subnet. There's also which is probably less often used but still has about a million addresses)

Well, gentoo is your option as long as compilers and libraries/programs don't drop support for x86. I think it's already pretty much impossible to get a newer java working on x86 because they dropped x86 support from their JIT.
Also you might want to look into cross compiling/distcc, because building a full gentoo system on an old laptop will take ages (if it will succeed at all, because some programs need ridiculous amounts of ram to compile).

I was going to install a fresh OS and while Debian has worked well for me so far, I decided to look elsewhere. Partially because a project that has a "diversity team" doesn't exactly evoke confidence in its competence or ethics and partially just for the sake of curiosity.
So I tried Fedora and I was not impressed. The GUI is ugly and phone-like, they call everything an "app" and it comes with nosebook/jewgle/etc sharing bullshit. I thought Fedora was supposed to be more anal about FOSS? I've heard that Microsoft has been pulling some CIA shit on both Debian and Fedora but at least the former never tried to pander to corporate whores when I installed it.

So to any enlightened atheists here: Is it better than it looks?
And how much can I trust any distro to be  free of spyware, sabotage and other corporate kikery these days?
Replies: >>3916
>Is Fedora better than it looks?
rpm/dnf is better than apt, but otherwise Debian is better. If you want to be sure that you have 100 % free software, install Gentoo or Guix. Also >>>/tech/2
Go look up non-systemd distros and install one, except Devuan and Artix because removing systemd is not enough to make Debian or Arch not garbage.
Install NetBSD or OpenBSD at that point, Linux is too backwards these days to run on 32 bit.
So say, I want to use a program but I want to isolate from my system while it's running or starting up.

I've been looking into chroot, and it had me thinking. What if I could write a script where when I run the script, the process will change users, chroot to that user's home directory, and that user will not even be able to touch anything except what I specifically designate.

The idea is to keep threats on the web from snooping into my other files. What do you guys think of the feasibility of such a thing?
Replies: >>3921 >>3925
Docker, LXC, VM
Install Gentoo.
Chroot isn't a security mechanism and the most secure isolation is a separate machine. Otherwise, look into containers and VMs. Docker is a joke.
Replies: >>3926 >>3927
>Docker is a joke.
Chroot is a security mechanism, but it only protects the filesystem and nothing else (in particular, you have to make sure the user inside can't get root and you don't fuck up the /proc mount). Containers are chroots extended to also secure other contexts (isolate IPC, network, pids, user ids, etc). While docker might be overhyped, it provides an easy framework to set up a container with mostly safe defaults.
VM is better, because with containers, an attacker only has to find a bug in the kernel to get out, with VM (provided you don't run the shit as root inside) the attacker has to find a bug in the kernel, the hypervisor, and if you're running the VM as a separate limited user on a different kernel, also in that kernel.
Getting a completely separate machine is only worth it if you're making it completely airgapped, and possibly on a non-nigger platform (no intel, amd bullshit, but on some as deniggered as possible open hw).

A niggered separate machine works if it is disconnected with no radio capability, ideally in a faraday cage. And only transfer data in a single direction.

Alright. Here's a few other questions.

1. Jails like firejail, and flashpeak are functionally containers similar to docker, right? If not, what's the difference?

2. Last time I tried VMs through qemu, I got my gpu passed through to a Win-7 machine along with a KVM switch. My problem was, loading vidya was slow, and USB controllers just DIDN'T fucking pass through no matter what I tried. 

3. What's your opinion on Xen and VMWare as hypervisors?

Neat idea, but not feasible for my setup right now.
elaboration to question 2: I'm aware that passing through a whole partition to a VM would make things faster, but I'd have to look more up on how exactly to do that.
Are there tools in existence that can detect jpeg images saved as other formats?
Replies: >>3932
>what is a search engine
They are all a bit different, you need to read and search a bit to know. Not sure about flashpeak, firejail uses namespace and Docker uses namespace and cgroups. In terms of isolation, they are similar, you should try them out and see which works best.
>loading vidya was slow
Either: your computer is too slow, or you didn't enable all possible accelerations
>USB controllers just DIDN'T fucking pass
What did you do to pass it? Did you do what https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/QEMU#Pass-through_host_USB_device said?
They are type 1 hypervisors, are you only going to run many VM?
non-free shit
Replies: >>3934 >>3962 >>4108
>firejail, docker
They use the same underlying technology (namespaces, cgroups, seccomp), so yeah they're similar, their use-case is different though. Docker is designed to download and execute a full linux system inside a container with zero configuration, while nsjail only really concerns itself with the sandboxing part. Nsjail is a bit more bare-bones, especially if you want a seccomp sandbox too, but it allows you to just run a normally installed program by for example giving access to /usr, /lib, etc. but nothing in your home. Of course, this means a bit worse isolation, but on the other hand you don't have to download 19373 different linux installations.
>win7, usb passthrough
Did you perhaps try to pass through USB3? I had problems with that (even passing through an USB2 device to an emulated USB2 port, if the computer had an USB3 port, it fucked itself up).
I'm not sure what's the status now, I stopped using win7 because it has no UEFI support and fighting with vgaarb is a fucking nightmare. At worst, get a PCI usb card, and pass through the whole PCI device.
Never tried
Used before virtualbox got normal snapshot support. It works, especially if you try to emulate some proprietary wangblows/mac shit and you want normal GPU performance without passthrough, but even in that case I'd more likely recommend virtualbox these days, if qemu is somewhy not ok.
But please note that KVM and virtualbox (and I think vmware too) are incompatible, which means if you run a VM in qemu, you can't start one in virtualbox.
Replies: >>3934
>Did you perhaps try to pass through USB3? I had problems with that (even passing through an USB2 device to an emulated USB2 port, if the computer had an USB3 port, it fucked itself up).
Oh fuck, that might've been the problem. my case has a few fucked-up USB ports and the most-usable ones were USB3, so that might've been the problem.
>They are type 1 hypervisors, are you only going to run many VM?
I plan to run at most, probably 2 or three Containers/VMs at once.

 I also have been unironically installing Gentoo in a VM to try it out. I've been getting the itch to switch, but I want to make sure I can get particular shit running with it. As such, I have one more question to go with this:

What are some ight-as-fuck WMs that has the ability to switch screen workspaces like most DEs? If I'm gonna go back to VMs, I might as well have something I can switch on a whim, and keep a full-enough screen.

You are asking for a VM viewer to do the job of a DE/WM. Customize your DE to switch between programs easily or use a WM with such function (eg: i3, dwm)

I'm back.

The more Scheme implementations I try the more I'm convinced they all suck. And the language's limitations create this awful vendor lock-in situation where you have to use your implementation's extensions which slows down the process of trying out all the implementations to find out which don't suck because you have to relearn stuff every time and nobody wants to do that.
It also splits the community heavily.

Replies: >>3977 >>3994
That's the problem with Schemes, yes. There's a huge standard that then gets partially implemented in a bunch of dialects, as opposed to Common Lisp. Use that perhaps?

I want to make good software, not shit on the street. 
The LISP dialects and particularly Scheme which is the one I've tried have the best syntax I've ever seen and the functional programming paradigm as well as the fact that the Scheme standard has a phrase that proves its designers actually tried to make a good language baked into it interested me.
Quote from R7RS:
>Programming languages should be designed not by piling feature on top of feature, but by removing the weaknesses and restrictions that make additional features appear necessary.
This is the exact opposite of nu-languages. This phrase alone proves the designers of Scheme are among the few language designers who actually know what makes a good programming language, it's not that what the phrase describes is the only thing that matters, but the phrase shows they have the right mindset.

The implementations on the other hand are completely rotten.

I think I'll just forget high level languages for now and stick to C and until R7RS-large comes out and hope it has more or less the same functionality as POSIX, maybe by then I'll know compilers and interpreters.

You want to create a correct (i.e. one that works) command-line to run the VM and just paste it in a .sh file. Try finding an existing script and adapt it to your needs. Also, Archwiki, Gentoo wiki and Qemu docs have some tips:
> https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/QEMU/Options

language: bash
# Get the installation .iso file
aria2c 'https://archive.org/download/TempleOS_ISO_Archive/TempleOSCDV5.03.ISO'

# Create a virtual HDD:
qemu-img create -f qcow2 TOS_disk.qcow2 3G

# Run the VM and install TOS

Still waiting to see examples of how CoC has a direct negative impact upon code. INB4, unqualified diversity hires. I get that, but what I'm talking about is a situation where a driver or something would not be allowed to function properly because CoC said that mean words are bad or whatever. Seriously, any examples of this?
Also, why not weaponize code of conduct in our interests? Take Firefox as an example and how it can be argued that it has become a woke botnet. Why not bombard Mozilla foundation with sentiment like the following?

>I am a gay rights activist in Iran and the metadata leaking from Mozilla's Firefox puts my life at risk.

Obviously the CoC doesn't immediately shit up the code, it's the indirect effects that are the problem. CoCs are an entry vector for useless parasites who push out competent contributors because they didn't suck tranny cock fervently enough and tie up the already scarce resources in pointless wokefaggotry like outreach programs.
>Also, why not weaponize code of conduct in our interests?
Because the rules are a misdirection. CoCs are deliberately vague so that everything you try can be deflected whereas everything they want can be justified under it.

Do you mean direct negative impacts? There are probably none. CoCks mean more mouthbreathing HR retard types can crawl into open source repositories and shit them up like they have been doing to corporations. Unfortunately, unlike globocorpo, not only do regular devs not have the money and resources to tard wrangle these people, they are also pathologically altruistic nerds and receptive to the poz to begin with. Not all of them, mind you. Just look at the seething sqlite has produced by adopting a very simple CoC-like that boils down to "be nice". It was simple, inoffensive and straight to the point; meaning no liability can worm its way in under the guise of enforcing it.

>Also, why not weaponize code of conduct in our interests?
Terms of conduct only apply to contributors. This is why the ogre tranny Corey Ehmke also calls it the "contributor's covenant". Good for driving productive people out, giving yourself a nice slice of money/clout for doing nothing of value and not much else.

Is there a way to get rid of the gay integrated search engine shit in Firefox? Maybe an older version of Firefox that doesn't have it? I've tried using ungoogled Chromium as an alternative to Firefox but adblocking is broken and I get weird performance like these anons >>3729 >>3730

I dunno. Maybe Java is fugged? Try to uninstall and reinstall it. I don't know if it makes a difference but you can try something like BCUninstaller to remove registry entries and extra shit left behind. Just make sure to double check what the program wants to delete after the initial uninstall.
There are minecraft files in one of the user appdata folders (local, roaming, etc. Can't remember which one). You can try to delete those if uninstalling leaves them behind still. Just make sure to back up saves, screenshots, etc. if whoever was playing it actively played it before it started shitting the bed
You could also try installing Mineshafter and see if that works. You could at least see if the problem with the legit launcher.

If you enter something into the address bar that isn't a url, it will automatically search using a search engine. You can remove the add-ons that come with Firefox that allow it to search with different search engines EXCEPT one because reasons. So this feature is always there and working as intended.

I was going to ask you to look this up, but you are trying to remove search... idk what to say
Replies: >>4074
Then I don't understand why did you try chromium, unless you enter a completely valid url, it will search for it. Firefox at least doesn't search for things that almost looks like an url, but you mistyped one character in it.
Anyway, in mememoon, and maybe in firefox, unless they decided to remote it because you know that's not how gulag's chrome works, about:config -> keyword.enabled and double-click to set it to false. It'll just paste .com to the end of whatever you enter, so I'm not sure whether it's an improvement or not.
In old firefox versions (and maybe even mozilla, I don't remember anymore) you had a separate url bar and a search bar, and in the url bar you could only enter an url, you couldn't use it for searching. Sometimes later they decided to allow searching from the url bar too, and even later they removed the (now) unnecessary search bar. If you ask me, a single bar is much more productive (less inputs and 99% of time it does the right thing and when not you can just prefix it with ? to have it search), but apparently some users prefer the old behavior.
Either that, or we have a weird anon who never wants to search for anything on the internet at all.
Arkenfox's user.js for Firefox has that disabled by default. The value is called "keyword.enabled", so search it up in about:config and disable it.
Why do almost all apps nowadays store their settings in the dconf file instead of inside .config? It's like I'm back on Windows with the massive registry.

I have always thought the main reason some people evolved to like animals is because before abrahamic religions if you were attracted to some animal or a monster and draw art based on animal/human relations you were seen as a great artist because animals were seen as gods. This didn't stop with abrahamic religions tho, it just slowed down. Greatest example of this is probably black bull raping Europa which if you asked the artists depicts Turks killing europeans but Turks are correlated with wolfs, not bulls, expecially not black bulls. I am pretty sure people that drew these fucked a lot and had kids thanks to the fame it gave them. This is just the art side, if you talked about fucking a wolf in a pagan religion you would be seen as godlike, if you deleted fucking animals and monsters from myth all the legends would be gone. Just imagine how much pussy these deranged schizos fucked thanks to their monstergirl fetish.

i just wanted to to try it out one last time since my install is a bit borked im setting up a gaming laptop and some of the drivers aren't gonna work on linux and by prepare i didnt really wipe my drive i just copied my config since and moved all user data to C:/ since i don't wanna deal with duplicate files

TL;DR i wanna use my pc as intended unless i somehow become an expert on non systemD distros

on a serious note which windows OS do i use is server pozzed as well? personally the only reason i use linux is solely becuase of GPU passthorugh but windows now supports it as well so i no longer need different filesystems on my backup drive
sorry for the veery late reply i was gone that that time with my other PC on didnt expect so many replies

is 21h2 better than 21h1 (on the ISO) (is 21h2 too new and unstable) i am unsure on which iso to pick (some apps debrilately refuse to run on windows server unless you pay for license)
will my chances of sucessfull passthrough be higher if i install server 2019 instead of 21h2? (2016 only supports DDA not GPU-P)
anyways which edition should i choose to maximize all features [home or pro or workstation or enterprise edition] i can't pick

if i install win10 pro trial/evaluation key and install the home OEM key that i originally have will the pro features re-lock themselves?
(installing hyper-v on home borks my system) i don't wanna deal with cracks and KMS tools which beats the purpose of VMs in the first place
also i heard that pro users get stable updates while the home users test unstable tranny coded shit
what the hell does N mean on the windows edition is it different?
gonna ask this in advance but is there a way to backup the windows.old folder without errors (or create diskimage but exclude the user data folders)

Artix is GNU/Linux. Artix should just work, Only the Linux kernel version (and perhaps microcode; install linux-firmware and amd-ucode) matter.
The reason why I recommended Debian testing, is that Ubuntu is a clusterfuck. Debian testing is also stable in my experience (used to use it for like 1.5~2 years).

I remember one anon made a post about ways to avoid poz in your public software project, one of the ways was using a license such that anyone contributing code automatically gives up the exclusive rights to that code and can't "take it back" at any point...
Are there any existing licenses that satisfy this?
Like, any open source license? If someone downloads something under an open source license, then as long as he doesn't break the license terms, he can do whatever fuck he wants. If the original person decides he doesn't want to distribute the software under the original terms, he can do, but whoever downloaded the old version under the old license can use/modify it under the old one.
Some projects do shit like requiring the contributors to practically assign the copyright to the project, that's a bit more secure about fuckery of previous contributors, but that's usually used for things like allowing the owner to later relicense the project and hoard shekels from free work.

Do you guys have a link to this talk?
A year or 2 ago I watched part of a really good programming talk about memory. The thing is I never finished it and lost the link, now I can't find it again. 

The talk was made sometime in the 2000s, 2008 is the year I have in mind.
The speaker compared the relative increases in performance between CPUs and memory, he compared the computer used in the moon landing, a VAX workstation, and a ~2008 desktop. 
He got a bit into memory barriers for whatever reason, but then he went into CPU architecture and what CPUs have done to make the best out of the relatively poor speed of computer memory these days.
The speaker talked a lot about Java (still a good talk though) because he worked in its implementation.
after a bit of digging around i decided to stick with 21h1 since i can just update later
windows server 2019 is based on older windows 1809 version with stripped down features
workstation seems much better since enterprise felt like a stripped down version of windows

Women in workplace is a bad idea because they always cause dramas. If you live with them for sometime, you would understand. They were never selected for intelligence and cooperation. The women in workplace idea came from jews who wants to reduce birthrate, lower wages, lower male values, and ultimately monopolize women as their flagship product. You can see free porn, onlyfags, slutty fashion, rape laws, women rights, all of them are advertisements and "don't shoplift" laws. All designed to milk simps dry. Males are hornier than ever, but if they ever even ask for a number, they are arrested as rapists if they fail the appearance test.
tldr don't hire women

>how do i prevent the jews and trannies from getting in
Easy. Be a public company while being completely anonymous. Offer money per unit of work, not by contract. You can stay completely off the grid by using anonymous crypto for salary. Have a public handle as the company, but don't have a office. No one knows who is the CEO, they only need to know that piece of work. I heard smart contracts can be used to avoid all lawyer shit. Also hire me. They can't dox/sue you if they don't know who you are.

That's not the point, the point is individual contributors taking back their code at any point because they own the right to it, even if it was already published... There has to be a license that directly forbids this.

This is valuable insight, but what is the alternative?

>meme license
Replies: >>4151
Like I said, (almost) all open source licenses were designed to be not be able to take back what you already published. But of course, there are moral rights and other bullshit, which means depending on the judge you can break pretty much any term of the license, so it's mot. The only solution here would be throwing the whole legal system out of the window, and creating a new one that's not controlled by jews.
Other than open source licenses? Well, maybe you could try to have contributors sign a work contract and complete the contribution under that, because that way the copyright owner will be the employer. But that's shitloads of extra paperwork, not sure if you can do it without salary, and well, a bullshit judge still can decide against you.
But a bullshit judge still can rule against you even if you have no contributors, so w/e. Probably the surest way is to remain completely anonymous, and just ignore any complaints.
Basically anyone can copy and subvert your stuff no matter what license you use.  But if you make your stuff unattractive, then nobody will want to.  Like if you code all your shit in Ada or Pascal, or Tcl or Perl, who's going to even bother to even look at it?  In fact you could take this even farther and write your own language and compiler...

thanks for the script man, I got my first qemu vm running without a need for any extraneous programs. Just having the problem listed above/

Getting that working was... Rough.

I basically fiddled with settings until it magically worked, only to find out that I had USB passthrough issues. So the solution I found was to setup ANOTHER VM that didn't work with the GPU, but it could passthrough USB, link both VM's disks, and copy shit to the GPU-passed VM's disk.

It was a fucking jankfest, but it worked for what I knew to do. I think I may need to get a new PC case, so I can have USB ports that actually work.

That's why fighting fire with fire works. They use politics to fuck you up, you use politics to stop them from entering. You know they will dox you if you tell them to fuck off. Stay anonymous. You know they will still try to get in. Use license or offensive coc to stop them (they agreed with fuck niggers if they contributes). You know github will cancel your account. Host it elsewhere, selfhost if needed.
The point is this doesn't affect people who only want to contribute and doesn't want politics. You don't cuck your code to their coc. You active fuck them up on their own field.

I need some WM advice, I'm looking for the following features.

-Low footprint, ideally as little as possible
-workspace functionality and a quick way to change workspaces on a whim, preferably with keyboard commands.
-No preference to tiling or floating WMs.

Also, How functional -is- the suckless suite? Is it really worth using it, or is it just pretentious as hell?

Any suggestions for headphones with nose canceling without pozz like: bluetooth apps etc?
Probably the most recent headphones released like this are bose qc25, are pretty cheap on used market too. 
They don't even have internal battery to go bad, it's just AAA.
Dwm fits your criteria perfectly.
>Also, How functional -is- the suckless suite? Is it really worth using it, or is it just pretentious as hell?
It depends. Dwm is literally perfect, and I see no reason for it to have more features. Besides maybe the systray patch, I don't see any more reasons to patch it further. There's also a fork of it called dwm-flexipatch that pretty much includes every patch ever made in it's codebase, but by default they're all disabled. This is very handy, since if you feel like that you no longer need a certain patch, then you can just change the value from 1 to 0 in the patches.h file before compiling dwm and the feature that patch added will no longer by there after you restart dwm. Just make sure to change the ModKey from LAlt to the Super key in your config.h.
Now on the other hand, dmenu, which another suckless utility, has no support for aliases inserted in your shell's config file (unless you make a bash script that adds that functionality of course), and that is in my opinion a crucial feature that every a program/shell script launcher should have, and I'm pretty sure that it doesn't have it, just because the suckless devs wanted to keep these few lines of code away from the codebase, which is in my opinion beyond retarded. St, however is yet another nearly perfect program, and the only nitpick I can find about is it that it's input latency is not as small as xterm's.
TL;DR: Install dwm, dmenu and st, and. try them out. If you won't like them, then replace them with rofi and your terminal emulator of choice.

>The point is this doesn't affect people who only want to contribute and doesn't want politics
Wrong. No normal person who wants to contribute code will accept a nigger license, you'd be repelling trannies AND regular apolitical people.
Instead of fighting ideological extremism with more extremism, fight it with moderation. Write clauses in your license/contributing file forbidding political discussion, explicitly reject the idea of CoC, and don't give trannies and the like any attention.
Having all contributors give up their exclusive right to their contributed code by giving you equal right to it is also a good idea, because it'll prevent malicious contributors from pressuring you into changing policy or "they pull their code". There should be a legalese version of that though.

why does this even happen (in many such cases)
man i kinda wish i never mentioned the coc thing on one of my first posts sorry for derailing the thread guys

well disregard that i installed an older version of xubuntu and it works without glitching
21.04 works but for some reason 21.10 broke anydesk (also the iso is larger indicating that there are lots of changes probably kernel related) ill stick with that one instead 

if i were to pick win7 7601 instead of win8 do i need to install the simplix pack or not? does this program have checkboxes? i want to install only ceratin features not the whole thing

serious question but if i were to make my own github project and ban trannies on sight will my account be suspended? is gitgud.io pozzed? any sane gitlab alternatives?

i saw a deepfake demonstration before on youtube but they chose to keep the software for themselves for whatever agenda they are planning *cough* *cough* i mean keeping it safeguarded for the better of humannity and to deter the bad actors

is it me or underground scene groups tend to strongly oppose lgbt (kek they havent pozzed the assembly language yet)

vmware passes my USBs just fine (is it possiible to use vmware and vbox and kvm simultaneously? on linux)
if you can get vbox to work install USB-over-IP (or you can do it on your host) and then add the reciever to the KVM guest
shame would be really nice if hyper-v and qemu-kvm had some kind of shared folders feature (maybe there is a manual alternative for linux)

>telecom is cancer
stick to xiaomi pal they are the least cucked alternative (good work china TAIWAN NO 1)
also i heard that you can unlock the bootloader of some redmi phones without cucking the data partition

also for some reason vmware does not respect my system config i assigned it to my 1650 but whenever i launch it it keeps using my radeon instead (and yes the vram tweak is paying off but i need 2gb of vram)

dunno if this is a bug on win10 or my gpu drivers but whenever there is slight graphical activity the disk goes to constant 1mb/s even if i play music on my browser (not just the vms but my host as well)
i seriously hope this is not a hardware problem since i never got any BSODs or crashes and rebooting fixes most problems there are also memory leaks related to win10
This could work for a while. Until they really want to kill your project off.
Normalfags are a liability. When they launch an attack, just like the lkml thread above, normalfags will vote yes with maintainer work as hostage, because they don't want to be seen as raycis. They may not pull their code, but they will quit and that is still a problem. Most problem in the world are caused by useful normalfags playing as their pawns, just like the sjw trannies.
Your approach sounds more normal, that anon should use this. But I'd go even further by excluding anyone not explicitly anti-jewish tricks.

> how long
The great reset timeline goes to at least 2030, so there's no big rush.  And see pic about how people kill rats.

Yes, they especially want to kill the elderly boomers, so they don't have to explain why they can't afford to pay them their pensions that are due.  And they already killed many of them in hospitals and nursing homes by putting them on ventilators, or denying them various treatments they needed because the management made "treating COVID" a higher priority.

If they can kill you before you can claim your retirement benefits, and after they've extracted every useful resource (work) out of you, then why not?  You have to understand what the great reset is really about.  And there's no better way to do that than by following the financial and patent trail.  I recommend you watch the two full interviews with Catherine Austin Fitts linked here:
Watch them in order (the 2020 one first).  She even talks about the BLM riots and what exactly they were for.

None. All laptops from the begining of time to today have improper battery management SEPARATE from the operating system which should work as a responsive PSU with multimeter diagnostics. This is separate from usage, and the battery type. These days hydrogen cells (thank US DoD for censoring for 30 freaking years) and the new upcomming solid lithium cell will last you depending how much boost performance and heat you're dissipating.

The header files tk.h and tcl.h are found in /generic, Tcl_Init and Tk_Init functions are in /generic/tclInterp.c and /generic/tkWindow.c respectively. But, that doesn't mean you can just use Tk separately. The devs normally recommend using the Tcl interpreter to talk to Tk, which is how Python's Tkinter module works, for example.

If you don't want to learn Tcl just to create a UI window from C, you can try something like FLTK or the poz itself, GTK.

Because, a) windows is retarded and you can't make a symlink without being root, and b) shortcuts can contain some extra info related to launching the program, like the initial working directory, custom icon, some launch flags and shit, see pic related.
Yes, on unix you would make a shellscript for this, but this is windows, instead of simple and flexible tools you have overcomplicated, inflexible shit.
The problem with that if you have shitloads of legacy programs that doesn't know about it, and you have a symlink to a folder, and you want to delete the symlink, apps would think it's a directory and recursively delete the whole shit. Or if you have a recursive symlink, that can easily send them into an infinite loop. That's why you have stat and lstat, but gluing it into a system without causing compatibility problems is not that simple. Probably this is why it's admin only, so normal users can't shoot themselves in the foot, but with it they also made sure it's completely unsuitable for anything.

P.S this is all assuming shortcuts = windows lnk files. Some linux DEs use .desktop files, somewhat similar, but they're only for launching programs and to store some info you can't get from the executable, like icon, supported file formats or a human readable application name.

If anybody here ever wants to test their program against Bionic, there's this niggermobile app called Termux which provides an unix shell with a package manager and its lead developer provides a docker image that's just the shell: https://hub.docker.com/r/xeffyr/termux

No cross compilation asspain needed, you can install clang, Make, your dependencies, and build and test the program inside a native Linux container running the Bionic libc.
If you start the normal emulator, you should be able to connect to it through adb and execute shell commands. Alternatively install an ssh server inside the emulator.
This is all assuming you have a normal executable, not an "android app" with java and shit, In the later case I have no fucking idea, you have to probably study the nigger android java api and figure out something.

How can I approach learning to write "endian-agnostic" code? Specifically in C/C++? Searches on Stack Overflow didn't yield any meaningful answers or resources, and I'm not well versed on the topic.

>a list of basic commands and a link to more advanced shit
You mean arguments for the game command? Yes that should definitely be included in the readme, however most programs (games included) respond to command --help or command -h by displaying all possible arguments.
>once your distribution stops getting updated...
...then the user can just distro-hop. There are plenty of distros to go around.
As for the distro repos being ancient, I agree that's a very valid concern. Thankfully nowadays more and more devs are releasing their software as AppImages for linux, which are like standalone EXE files on windows that you can download and run right away. There are also Flatpaks but I'm not a fan of those.

Have you tried yt-dlp?

Seconding a pull request to yt-dlp.

afaik endian only matters for bit level data structure/operations. If you don't do any of those, you are good. Else you either standardize endian in your program or write code twice.
Replies: >>4310 >>4314 >>4320
Not really, if you write binary files, do network comunication, or anything where the same not byte based data have to be interpreted by different computers that might have different endianness, you have to deal with the issues.
If you're using c++ and boost, one mostly pain-free method is to use boost endian, it has types that automatically convert to the target endian. Otherwise you'll probably have to implement byteswaps in your c code. Searx "c byte swap"
Replies: >>4320
Endianness is what makes a conversion between different "sizes" (bit, byte, word…) well-defined. It makes no sense to talk of "the first element of an unordered set" - you have to pick an ordering first. Likewise, it makes no sense to speak of "bytes considered as a word" - you have to pick an endianness (or some other scheme, but little/big endian are the most common).

As a consequence, if you operate on e.g. words only with operations that are meaningful on them (rather than operations like "get the first byte" - there is no first byte!), you don't need to care about endianness at all. When you do convert between sizes, always keep in mind that this requires a choice of endianness. When you convert e.g. the first two bytes of data to a 16-bit word via little endian, the correct code is not ((uint16_t*)data)[0], but data[0] | data[1]<<8. The latter will produce the same (correct) result regardless of computer endianness because it is a well-defined operation whereas the former is ill-defined nonsense that implicitly depends on a mapping from uint8_t[2] to uint16_t (and the goodwill of your insane compiler vendor but that's a different matter). Similarly, if you read a description of a byte-based format and see "octets 1-4 are a 32-bit unsigned integer", you should immediately ask what the fucking endianness is, because otherwise this passage makes no sense.

Most endianness issues I've seen in the wild that aren't caused by underspecification come from inane attempts at microoptimization and code golfing. Let me assure you that the performance difference is fucking negligible in the first place and last I checked GCC recognizes the common well-defined conversion idioms and emits a byteswap/nop anyway. Do the correct thing, not the """fast""" thing.

Check out this article:

Practice of Programming's 8th chapter is called Portability and it has a section and a very thorough exercise about this. It's on libgen.

Endianness exists whenever you read or write data to memory using a data type other than the machine's smallest addressable unit of memory (the byte).

If you use an UTF encoding other than UTF-8 your text has endianness. That's why the BOM exists, to mark the endianness of the text.
If you read a TCP packet from the internet, its headers contain numbers wider than 1 byte and thus it has endianness, the internet is always big endian. The Java (cursed be its name) VM presents itself as big endian so javashitters don't have to worry about the endianness of the machine, it's always big endian, even when it runs on a x64 PC, x64 being a little endian architecture.
Even assembly instructions have endianness, though a CPU's registers don't because they're not addressable memory.

I think my both my ssd and other components of my pc is causing memory leaks. Even with no applications opened, ram usage slowly increased until the system crashed. I thought my cheap ssd was the cause this problem, until I plugged it to my laptop instead, with the same os installed on the pc, there was no memory leak. I should also note that when using an old laptop hdd for my pc, there was no memory leak. I don't even what to do anymore.

Linux beginner here.
I'm writing a script that uses 'read' to give me a key variable which will be used throughout the script. I'm testing out some theories with the scripting and usually I'd be using [[ ]] command to run tests on the variable, but this time I'd like to try doing the same with the 'test' command instead. 

Here's an example of one of the tests I run on the variable
if [[ "$REPLY" =~ ^[-[:alnum:]\._]+$ ]]; then
    echo "'$REPLY' is acceptable."

Now how can I write this if I am using the 'test' command instead of [[ ]] ?
And also as a separate question, is there a way I can 'alter' read input? For instance, if the user inputs 'answer' or 'Answer' in response to read, can I put some commands in to change the text to be all caps or all lowercase or whatever?
Replies: >>4333 >>4334
You can't. man test tells you it only match strings. You need to use something like grep.
>alter read input
Yeah, use sed, awk, anything that input text and output text and save that to a variable with ALTERED_ANSWER=$(somecommand "$REPLY"). You can even use the same variable name if you want to replace the original value.

Because symlinks (and the other eunuchs-ism of hardlinks) are extremely brittle, overloading what should be unrelated ephemeral metadata (path/filenames, inodes) in place of dedicated stable UUIDs.

Windows shortcuts aren't as powerful as some other alternatives, such as Mac aliases or OS/2 shadows, but they're a step up from the garbage legacy eunuchs is restricted to.

Sadly, because the dominant WAN ended up being the eunuchs-based Internet, modern OSs all have to conform substantially to the eunuchs POZIX standard, so that means supporting symlinks as a lowest common denominator.

Let me explain it a little better:
I'm being told to rewrite a program using 'test' rather than the compound command of [[ ]]. I have also been told to use grep by the book but but I just don't see how I could even use grep in this way. Here's one of the programs it wants me to rewrite. 

possible language: php, relevance: 40

# read-validate: validate input

invalid_input () {
     echo "Invalid input '$REPLY'" >&2
     exit 1

read -p "Enter a single item > "

# input is empty (invalid)
 [[ -z "$REPLY" ]] && invalid_input

# input is multiple items (invalid)
(( "$(echo $REPLY" | wc -w)" > 1 )) && invalid_input

# is input a valid filename?
if [[ "$REPLY" =~ ^[-[:alnum:]\._]+$ ]]; then
       echo "'$REPLY' is a valid filename"
       if [[ -e "$REPLY" ]]; then
               echo "And file '$REPLY' exists."
               echo "However, file '$REPLY' does not exist."

       # is input a floating point number?
       if [[ "$REPLY" =~ ^-?[[:digit:]]*\.[[:digit:]]+$ ]]; then
               echo "'$REPLY' is a floating point number."
               echo "'$REPLY' is not a floating point number."

       # is input an integer?
       if [[ "$REPLY" =~ ^-?[[:digit:]]+$ ]]; then
               echo "'$REPLY' is an integer."
               echo "'$REPLY' is not an integer."
       echo "The string '$REPLY' is not a valid filename."

Also, while I'm at it, what is the point of  ">&2" both in this context and in general?
No, this isn't homework, I just picked up some Linux/Bash books as a way to start learning it and came across this question I don't know the answer to

test is more-or-less a stupider and not built-in version of [[, imho there's not much sense in using it, unless you like confusing mechanics or you want to run your script on 20 year old commercial unices...
By grep I guess the book want you to use something like echo "$var" | grep -q regex, which is useful if you don't have a [[ that supports regexes, again, only if you want your script to run on ancient systems. Even newer busybox versions support this, which has like the most barebones shell implementation available today.
>&2 redirects the output to stderr, where errors usually goes. That way if you redirect the script's output, you can still see the errors.
I think you should get a book not written in the last century.

No, you want to use test instead of [[ which is bash-specific. test is posix and can be used for all posix compliant shells. Default shells are usually posix, not all of them is bash. For example, default non-interactive shell for debian and ubuntu is dash, which doesn't have [[. dash is also a lot faster than bash.
The way to use grep is right, grep returns 0 if the pattern is found.
It's not last century but to write scripts for posix shells than bash. I had my fair share of "turns out it's not running bash" experiences. On minimal linux installs, bash may not even exist, even if it does, running takes more resources and is slower.

Except alpine, and maybe some other linux destros, the default user shell is bash. And for scripts, all that matters is what you have in shebang, and >>4355 clearly wrote /bin/bash there (even though it should be #!/bin/bash and not #~/bin/bash), and if you're using bash, it makes no sense in using the older ones, since they're likely slower and it's much easier to fuck up quotation. And let's not talk about how pain in the ass is to use arrays in the posix shell...

test and [ is the same, [ is just a normal executable with a weird name. (They're both builtins if you're using bash though, but that's just an optimization and doesn't change how they work)

User shell (interactive) is not the same as non-interactive shell. Eg ubuntu defaults to bash as user shell, but dash for scripts. shebang is a solution, but bash being not present is more likely than you think on containers, vms and some servers. For someone learning, writing posix shell script is better than assuming bash is everywhere.
>no array
Really a shame, wouldn't have to resort to other language/tools if posix sh has that. Space separated string doesn't really work unless there is no space in elements.

Honestly the only good thing about these enterprise distros is that they have ridiculously long support cycle, so you can install your server now, and forget about it for the next 10 years. (Then end up in a huge mess after, because at that time you'll have a software that doesn't run on anything that's remotely recent, so you'll have to spend shitloads of money to port it to something newer or pay shitloads of money for some extra super extended support. But that's how large corporations work.)
I don't think using some rolling distro is such a good idea, because any update can potentially break things, which is fine when it's your local computer, but not that when it's a server that needs to be available. At least with non-rolling distros you can be pretty sure that a normal update will only bring security fixes and it's extremely unlikely that it'll break things. And usually you don't need the bleeding edge on a server anyway.
I use alpine on my VPSes, it's perfect when you don't need anything closed source or too fancy, and it's fairly lightweight.

I mean, with not rolling distros you can pretty much just auto install updates, and then you have a relatively secure server, and you can do the more painful bigger updates when you have time for it. Yes, a distro update there will be a bit more painful, but I don't think rolling is more stable, it's just the breakages are more evenly spread out and less deterministic (many small vs few bigger)

Correct. I have been trying to do that on my old phone. What you want to do is to get to a serial terminal to u-boot (usually the bootloader) and find a way to flash your own.

Usually you are troubled by:
>No serial output
You need to point Rx and Gnd everywhere on the board and keep on rebooting
>No official dtb/using other stuff
Mainline linux works with dtb, try to extract a dtb from the device or modify one that's close enough. You only need to have storage, usb, and wifi working. Maybe even display output.
If it's not using dtb at all, it's a lost cause.

The bootloader is sometimes locked down and hell and in many cases not even uboot. And android devices like this are full of blobs, sometimes it's only the graphics driver you don't care about, but sometimes it's basic stuff like wifi, which means it's pretty much impossible to use any kernel and part of userspace other than what the vendor provided, which is as >>4380 mentioned, usually ancient and has the weirdest config you can imagine.
The problem with chroot is in that case you still have to run android, which can be a huge resource hog with all its java shit and background processes and whatnot. Of course, still better than nothing, but at this point I'd look for a different board, even if it means that I have to pay a little more.
