Are there any good quality KVM switches that support 4K/144hz+? The majority seem to be cheap unreliable chink shit.
Do anyone know what the heck happened with opennic? Most of their DNS servers are offline.

I had a similar issue during my install several years ago. Assuming they didn't fix it, it has something to do with their dnscrypt-openrc script package. You'll need to compare it with another source like Gentoo to see what's wrong and read the script itself.

Is teamspeak3 compromised? If it run it off my machines, they shouldn't have a way to record conversations in the same way that discord probably does, right? Yes, I realize this might sound a bit paranoid.
Replies: >>573

It's proprietary software but self-hosted, so generally the only people that are going to be capable of harvesting your communications are those running the servers themselves, and I very much doubt someone is going to be using their little team speak server made for a dozen people to data mine their conversations. Mumble is the better choice just because it's open source, but both are infinitely more secure choices to discord. Even mumble wouldn't prevent someone running the server from capturing communications and recording conversations. It's just ridiculously unlikely anyone would bother going through that much work, and if the concept really bothers you then you host a server yourself.

My followup question then, is there a command line tool that serves the same function as jschan's filename stripper to rename my files so they have a randomized sha256sum as the filename?
Replies: >>613 >>615
>>612
There is sha256sum, part of the GNU coreutils. It should be preinstalled in nearly every distro including Arch (part of base group).
You can just run sha256sum on the file then rename the file to the sha256sum output.
Replies: >>614
>>613
That's useful but not quite the same thing as what the file name stripper does.
Replies: >>615
>>612
Your tool is the command line. Also hashsums aren't randomized, they're (ideally) a one-to-one match to the byte array you feed to it. Imageboard software uses it to avoid duplicating file uploads. The question is: why would you want to use it? By erasing a meaningful name you just make it harder to find what you want.

>>614
This is a sample script with a default dry run state, just adapt away what you don't want or need (SHA256, extension checking etc.):

possible language: bash, relevance: 68
#!/bin/bash

is_dry=true
# The only script argument, use -f to see actual changes
if [[ "$1" == "-f" ]]; then
	echo "Force mode, committing changes."
	is_dry=false
fi

# Grouping together file extension checks with escaped parentheses because of -o
# Setting delimiter as NUL to make file names safe to work with
# -r in while helps avoid mangling backslashes
find . -type f \( -name "*.jpg" -o -name "*.png" \) -print0 | while read -r -d $'\0' file_path
do
	# Working with built-in patterns to avoid creating unnecessary forks
	file_dirname="${file_path%/*}"
	file_fullname="${file_path##*/}"
	# Shortest match from beginning helps catch names like example.(bak.jpg) <-
	file_ext="${file_fullname#*.}"
	file_name="${file_fullname%%.*}"
	# No need for NUL delimiter here because first field is all we care about
	file_sha256="$(sha256sum "$file_path" | cut -d " " -f 1)"
	if [[ ! "$file_sha256" == "$file_name" ]]; then
		echo "Moving \"${file_path}\" as hash name \"${file_sha256}.${file_ext}\""
		# Dry run check
		if [ ! $is_dry ]; then
			# Bracket expansion on variables to emphasize where / and . are
			mv "$file_path" "${file_dirname}/${file_sha256}.${file_ext}"

Since flash's death is right around the corner, I was wondering if any of you knew of efficient (and retard-friendly) ways of converting swf files into webm/mp4.
Obviously not for flash games but rather the plethora of musical loops and miscellaneous videos I've accumulated in that format throughout the years, which I can't find anywhere else and would like to convert so as to be able to upload them wherever in the future.
I'm pretty tech-illiterate and I'm sure there must be ways to do it which simply eluded me due to the aforementioned, so apologies in advance for my ignorance.

A one time jewgle captcha is pretty inoffensive relative to every other discord alternative. And being able to sign up to it without any email or anything is a big bonus. I checked it out again and it seems like the programs gotten a little better in terms of general UX. But I'm too lazy to test/figure out if they have a good VOIP solution yet.

I don't reckon it should be that hard of a task but I don't know how to do it, that's why I ask.

Linux isn't any more or less broken than Windows. It's equally as broken minus some spyware. It's just broken in different ways. Some things will work out of the box that would be difficult or impossible on windows, others vice versa. Though I don't really see the purpose in things like Kodi. Surely it's not that difficult just to navigate your movies and TV shows manually.

As for NAS I've never been able to get that to work on either windows or linux.

I don't know about windows, it was a piece of crap even 20 years ago and I don't think anything changed in the meantime, but linux (kernel + the whole ecosystem) is definitely getting worse and worse with each new release. First we got pulseaudio, then systemd, and gnome3 and whatever else you have in userspace, then finally Linus yielding/going sjw/whatever and diversity hires in linux kernel fucking up everythng that worked, like getting gpu hangs every few hour in a fucking stable kernel release with intel drivers. VFIO passthrough were also broken for releases.
I'll really have to look into something like OpenBSD, where developers are still valued based on their code and not how many pronouns they have in their twatter bio. Too bad HW support is basically non-existent for anything.

I haven't used Windows in 3 years. Linux is the better operating system, but from a raw usability perspective, at least for the average person, it's just as bothersome as Windows in most cases.

If we adjusted for the learning curve then Linux is clearly superior, but we can't adjust for that because no matter what we do people are simply going to have a decade+ of experience with windows and they're always going to have barely any experience with Linux.

I'm not a microjew "fanboy", I'm just setting realistic expectations for what using Linux is like. Once you learn how to deal with all the quirks, navigate the file system, fix all the oddball issues that each distribution will inevitably have with your specific software choices, then it's great. But that takes time and effort to learn. If you go around pretending like no one will ever run into weird bugs and issues with Linux and that it'll magically fix all their problems then you're just going to set people up for failure.

Because I've been using it for months and had very few issues with it. Hardest part is setting up hardware decoding but even that's not too difficult assuming you read the guides. Just install it, go through the steps in the web interface, and you're done. Haven't had any issues with mismatches, although my server is an unholy mess of FTP and SMB so navigating is a bit weird.

>>661
>average user
Yeah, if all you need is a web browser to read faceberg and the usual shit, windows can do it. All they can do is to press the big button and if something doesn't work complain, they don't care that on windows if you want to fine tune something or check some low level setting you need a bunch of obscure tools from random sites, because you can't configure anything out of the box, while on linux all you need is a shell and procfs and sysfs and text based config files, and you can script it easily unlike those abomination GUI garbage you have at windows.
Reminds me when my dad decided to try out Ubuntu many years ago. If something didn't work, he'd ask me, and I'd open a terminal, type in two commands and problem solved. Two days later he uninstalled it because he didn't want to mess in a console. So that's your average user for you. And for that kind of workload, windoze is sadly better, because even "user friendly" distros are severely lacking (and by the way, complete garbage, like Ubuntu). However, if you're not afraid of tinkering and invest time into it, Linux will easily topple windows and you will never want to go back.

There is no easy way once a distro's system is infected with it -- as intended by Redhat ofc. There is a good reason it took the Devuan team two full years to excise that cancer from Debian.

A real active converter or just a cable? Many keyboards can support both PS2 and USB, but they just have a single plug. If you have a really old keyboard, it's possible that it doesn't support usb at all then you need an active converter. Try with an other converter if possible or plug it into a different computer if you have.

I recently had the pleasure of discovering botnet on my local network, a "gift" as it seems from my service provider, an innocent tv box, but seemingly not so innocent after all. It would directly connect and listen/leech to every single connected device on the network, wired or wireless as long as the box has access to router and send data out corresponding to the ran traffic on devices. In this pic it does not connect to green anymore for example as all ports are blocked.

I checked  the addresses of the tree in question and sure enough they are some obscure class D, and multiple had been marked for abuse which is enough as well as using an obscure proprietary protocol  ez2meet related to actual trojans, so far no hard evidence but, seems very strange. Thoughts?

Since I'm curious I want to find out and record exactly what it does send for closure though, would a rasperri pi wireshark between box itself and router suffice? Any suggestions?

You have to first establish just how new to programming you are. There is the fucked around with programs, configuring the OS and debugging little scripts from an early age new and then there is the complete novice. Then you need to figure out how good at math are you.

So, to map it out:
Familiarity with tech, good math - SICP.
Unfamiliar with tech, good math - A lecture series on basic concepts of programming and computing, followed by SICP.
Familiarity with tech, bad math - Stroustroup's book off /sci/wiki instead of SICP; you can start it afterwards to fill in the gaps.
Unfamiliar with tech, bad math - HTDP instead of SICP, it assumes less math knowledge; same with starting it afterwards.

Learning how to program is, in general, a feeling out of the field. Don't try to dive too deep right from the start or you might burn out.

>search results only match entered terms 30% of the time
Because you're on a Raspberry Pi, which is ARM. There are less packages available for it.
>compile this, add that
You are trying to use a piece of software that needs some specific things that aren't readily available for your architecture. For example, VLC with hardware acceleration and the same for ffmpeg.
>which don't install automatically same as the rest for some reason
Wrong OS for that, most software doesn't ship with their own pre-compiled libraries and there is no WinSxS equivalent on Linux.
>tough shit, rtfm, faggot
I quite literally entered "universalmediaserver raspi" into a search engine and read up on why you need to separately compile certain things yourself in the span of 5 minutes and that there are ARM-specific sidegrades to UMS. What do you need it for?

So what's so wrong about premoderation?
I can't think of a better way to moderate a board than a combination of premoderation and id - everyone has an id in the form of a post deletion password, and if you are a fucking nigger, then your posts get hidden.

You're better off looking for old laptops that have decent CPU/GPU in them than trying to find parts for a retro PC build. Most people wanting a 90's era PC overlook them as the screen is terrible by today's standards and the battery doesn't hold a charge. Keep it plugged in to a wall outlet, hook it up to screen, max out the memory and install an IDE SSD to get a decent machine for under $50 generally. Much less if you don't care about a broken screen, locked BIOS or poor condition of the body.

I don't know if they have flea markets or thrift stores in Europe but in the west those places are gold mines in areas that have a large tech sector.

>So what's so wrong about premoderation?
Premoderation leads to censorship on the janny's whim. There's a board that does premoderation in a way. It's called smug /a/. They use their HoiHoi janny murderbot as a form of premoderation, which managed to get dudley and Josh aka "PHP pro" BTFO by heavily throttling 8chan's servers and it slowly brought the downfall of 8chan during the pig farmer era since the /a/ janny devs still couldn't fix their HoiHoi murderbot to function in a way that doesn't throttle servers. Smug /a/ still manages to suck heavily anyways with the fear of sudden DELetion unless you assimilate with their IRC cabal circlejerk. See smug /support/ complaint threads.
Smug /a/ tries to make their board like a PHP BBS forum to some extent in their most active thread, the cafe. They weaponize the anonymous aspect of imageboards against their "users" and force them to use tripcodes or post on other threads when their IP changes. They do atleast exempt onion users from the "post outside the cafe first before posting in the cafe" rule, but they can't post files on /a/ at all. The identity proof thing may prevent drama with bad faith posters that are from other boards, but smug /a/ is still vulnerable to infighting or random "meido" IRC drama leaking out onto their own shitboard.

>everyone has an id in the form of a post deletion password, and if you are a fucking nigger, then your posts get hidden.
The idea of anons being able to hide other posts by same IP, or rather call it board-wide or site-wide IDs is not good and destroys the purpose of anonymous imageboards. Anyone can spoof the password-based IDs too just by using a different password. It's like turning an anonymous imageboard into a fucking PHP BBS forum but with automatic user registration.
Just manually hide posts harder or use filters instead of relying on hiding other posts by same IP or by password-based IDs.

I don't always see eye to eye with >>744. But premoderation is a bad move. Moderation is a judgement on the board's best interest between freedom and quality. Knowing how shitty most users are, it no longer makes senses to moderate in favor of freedom against quality. But mods are not perfect. Even when mods are working as is now, they can't differentiate always between culture(fun) and low quality(shitting up the board). For example, >>733 may be asking for dancing figures on Linux in a shitty way, and >>734 noticing that may be answering that question. Probably they are all retards and their posts should be deleted. But mods never know.
Premoderation takes away the chance for quality and culture to rise from chaos. Chaos is too tilted to the stupid end, so chaos needs to be trimmed. But never eliminated. That also moots the point of an image board by removing anonymity.
I understand where that is coming from. If I advertise now, hoards of 3rd world board will flood this. Before users can defend themselves and outnumber outsiders, closing the gate or using pseudoaccounts is not the answers. Nor does it attract high level posters. If I see shit like that on a new /tech/, I 360 immediately. Moderation will cost more, but it is necessary to gather a group of high level posters.

how do you justify madlads trying to post madlad stuff, getting banned because "THIS POST WASNT UP TO STANDARD" and then calling the board gay (rightly so) and leaving
and then only your types that tolerate this remain
constrain initiative and lack of initiative will constrain (you)
take this shitpost of a webm for example, can content like this be made on your kind of shitboard? it's an effortless shitpost oWo whats this fucky wucky *nuzzles cheek*, you ban this kind of thing rite high council? then how the fuck would shit like this ever appear if you keep banning things you don't like? you ever tried shitting on it instead by replying to it?

You understand the reality of shitty users. Either you filter 90% of the board, like 4/g/, or attract quality posters (including those who make your webms) by banning trash. Don't straw man this by saying everything is banned. You know damn well it isn't the case.
If you have to blur the line of trash and attribute that to things that mods like, then the question is whether you trust the mods or not. The condition doesn't allow another solution. You roll for based mods and we have maximum freedom without trash. Or it is another time to make a new board.
Your better solution is to let them in, see what mass immigration led us now. So many forums and communities are ruined because of the lack of BASIC quality control. It will be no different this time. Just hop on any other /tech/, /g/ and see for yourself.

people have fun with their shitposts, this lets them to put effort into your "community" on life support
if you force it, it ends up bland and unimaginative, good order always comes from chaos
to carefully skirt around the big "CUCKCHAN" line and big "TECH ONLY" line you have to either post in carefully defined threads or specifically designated QTDDTOT, which is forcing it, it's not fun at all 
what if I make a new thread for fags to have fun in, should I get b&d as well you cockmonglers?
this kind of rulecuckery is why a lot of faggots dodge these rulecentric kinds of shitboards instead of lurking where a small bunch of faggots say "BAN EVERYONE WE HATE" and it ends up anything they define as cuckchan, go to cuckscord instead where instead of deleted they just sell their data to communists and end up fucked up because of some trannies or something
absolute eggheads

banning trash suspends the guarantee that your shitposts are safe from deletion and you don't have lurkers anymore because you're not the only shitboard around NOR are you the only alternative to 4/g/
before it was just 4/g/ so people adjusted, and now, what's the situation?
for this mental exercise, let's throw away any notions of "board quality" so we can understand what you are competing against
>4/g/ (previous popular board, has just as much clout as it had before if not more; population in the thousands)
>TOR n*no /g/ (stuck around for 2-3 years after /tech/ left 8ch to tor, managed to survive on it's own and carve out a niche)
>YOUR BOARD (le ban your post if it's not good enough xddddd we need users but we're not gonna shill xdd)
you just do not have the leeway to be anal with it
my last post on this board was in the meta and the board stayed as dead as ever, a promising example for the rest of the webring community, sasuga
>If you have to blur the line of trash and attribute that to things that mods like, then the question is whether you trust the mods or not. The condition doesn't allow another solution. You roll for based mods and we have maximum freedom without trash. Or it is another time to make a new board.

if you do not fight the invaders with serious shitposts instead of UWB4TP the only people left will be ones posting carefully, wary of the UWB4TP or ones that don't post at all
can such fearful faggots be creative when they're focused on the "UHHH HOW DO I GET MY THREAD OP TO BE GOOD ENOUGH NOT GET THE DEL UHHHH"?
quality enforcement is a strategy of preserving the average post quality, but you need top of the curve to even succeed in this shitboard since you do not shill anywhere
>The trick is to not over use the power but set examples when you do.

Look at any single one /tech/ with no moderation and see what happens. This isn't irl, there is no mechanism for posters to defend themselves. How many serious shitposter do you need to win against a python script or a well-funded team of (((Apple))) shill?
If you are so sure of your 1337 shitposting skillz, why haven't you fixed 4/g/? If no banning is needed, you don't need cooperation from mods. Where is your shitposting team? There is plenty of chaos in 4/g/ as well, where is good order?

Common misconception. This board does not die if it doesn't expand. It does when it is full of trash. Like many open source projects, they don't die even SJW and their simps are banned from the project. It only dies when it is subverted.
What about tens of other dead boards with no moderation? Moderation or the lack of it is not what decide traffic.

here you have proxies, real proxies if you know where to look, fucking opera browser offers vpns at the click of a button, google yields lists of free proxies to use and compared to sites like pissu where he just went and banned like 90% of the free ones alongside tor nodes this is pretty much free reign for the dedicated shitposters

>If you are so sure of your 1337 shitposting skillz, why haven't you fixed 4/g/?
first off, not going to cuck/g/ under any circumstances
second off, this board's population is within tens or (very, VERY maybe) hundreds of users, I can have most of you read my posts while on 4/g/ it would take far more posts to reach most of them
>If no banning is needed, you don't need cooperation from mods. Where is your shitposting team? There is plenty of chaos in 4/g/ as well, where is good order?

I see fags on nano doing their own thing rather successfully
I see cuck/g/ full of cancer
I see fucking discord with thousands of users and you don't have shit
success has clear criteria this board fails to meet
>You missed all the other alt /tech/ and /g/.
eh, which ones, ones on 8kunt? if some were drowning in shitposters and others refused to laugh at them using a hundred proxies, that's their fault regardless
>Common misconception. This board does not die if it doesn't expand. It does when it is full of trash.
what a way of thinking
good boards were always full of trash, 4/g/ was full of it, 8/tech/ was full of it, you had to filter through garbage to find good nuggets of wisdom
but that wisdom was there because there very many people were around and by chance, by PURE CHANCE this anon happened to know his shit and was there because the board was worth sorting through and now you have a good post
you take away hundreds of people and there's opportunities for circlejerking, infighting, clear attack vectors, et cetera, you take away the people from a proverbial market and it becomes a small gathering, vulnerable to many, many things
and it is far from easy to GAIN the people, SUSTAINING the numbers is a far less difficult task
>Like many open source projects, they don't die even SJW and their simps are banned from the project. It only dies when it is subverted.
subversion starts from places of command, does the BO want to crusade for trans rights? or wants to use lighter language? is site owner sympathetic? no? no on both fronts, fucko, you're good
you worry about these things only on reaction and against pulling internal SJW takeovers, use harsh methods then and only then, no sense in fucking over the growth period, absolutely none
>What about tens of other dead boards with no moderation? Moderation or the lack of it is not what decide traffic.
when mods and BOs abandon their boards and refuse to support them (direct, shill, POST, etc) no one feels the need to stick around for obvious reasons - there may be better pastures elsewhere, after all

EVERY TIME (or just MOST of them there's no need to be that good) they try to thoughtlessly claim their position is moral and just and just say le heh lurk more, it's gonna end up a closed off circlejerk
thus the way forward is through constant posting and knowing your shit, you cannot reach the PEAK JUST AND RIGHT, you have to actually argue with these cunts or it ends up really fucking terrible
imagine a room of five high profile academics trying to discuss non-euclidean geometry and whether it's even possible to have real life applications of it only to stumble upon themselves and say stupid shit even with their homework done before the sit-down just because current status quo is "deny everything that has no proof" so it's impossible for them to even entertain the thought of such things
that would be close to what would be, you'll have reached "I know what X is, it's retarded and I can make them leave", but arguing and complicated things would be out of reach
>Aren't you going to scare the shills away with your l33t shitposts?
>Go on, make a board somewhere and advertise. Show me how much a not-rulecuck you are.
it's already on this site and while I'm not pointing fingers to it, it's obvious enough what it is
though I just mod it it isn't really mine

it's important to note here that while it was not required to even GIVE you that piece of information, you still have it because you're not someone that's a fucking idiot, just a little bit wrong, so I know what I'm talking about
there is one requirement for big and small boards alike, and that is THEY MUST HAVE STRENGTH AND THEIR USERS MUST HAVE STRENGTH
you can know what's right and what's wrong, but if you can't defend that, it's just a thought man don't interfere don't judge, stay on the sidelines and let the big boys play go somewhere else with that mayne~~~
but once you can defend your theory and apply reasonable force, the other guy has to use something or fucking walk, banning works as a temporary measure to stop the spread of retardation but does nothing for the rest of the anons, they'll be monkey see monkey do
arguing is where lurkers get the "holy shit this guy is wrong I'm gonna lurk" instead of "holy shit this guy got banned" and is thus better for long term, arguing takes a certain kind of strength and inspires others to know what's what, shitposting is fun, enjoyable and can be done in parallel
ideally I wouldn't even have to say that, it's kind of like explaining the joke, completely explaining a murder mystery in a middle of the story or teaching a magic trick, so fuck you you're note alexander

How does a board become worth sorting through? You argue with discord trannies and macfaggots again for the INT_MAX th time? Maybe, for lurkers who don't yet know about the routine arguments or brainlets who don't searx. For those who knows, it is the same shit over and over again. And this is when good posters check-in and leave.
This is the fundamental difference. You seek to gather a crowd and argue, promising fun, idea and truth. I seek to gather the old-timers and slowly integrating lurkers. While both can end up with a strong user base, it is possible to be overwhelmed immediately if advertisement is effective. Keeping the bar high while purposefully letting new arguments happen mitigate this problem.
Posters who don't take the least amount of time to find that same old argument and soy faces shouldn't even be here at all. 
It is not never shitpost and argue, but to limit it during the growth period and lift it afterwards. This is done to filter out bad actors but still rise the flag of this great new land where the BO is one of those oldfags he is trying to gather.
I agree arguing with bad actors can be useful as an example for lurkers. But that should not be done at the first stages where nobody but the bo is arguing and gets overwhelmed by nigger hoards.

there's an enclave on nano and wherever you think they are, I only know those listed so far
if there's still fags on 8kunt you can gay op them to come over here, I also recommend cuckchan once you have enough users to resist the drag and pull of unrestricted FUNPOSTING but that's so far away
for nano I would recommend rapid suggestion for them to enter the webring and giving an alternative to their board to fill out a niche instead of competing for users - they have a good thing going, but this is clearnet and there's opportunities for different content
what kind of content? I don't know but references include /v/'s constant game night spam, smug/a/'s tea room/radio, skf's /icup/ and plw/geimu/'s game club
you don't have to be empty if you can get events going, but make extra sure that events are not the focus of your board and just a tool to make it more popular
>How does a board become worth sorting through? You argue with discord trannies and macfaggots again for the INT_MAX th time? Maybe, for lurkers who don't yet know about the routine arguments or brainlets who don't searx. For those who knows, it is the same shit over and over again. And this is when good posters check-in and leave.
it's not optional, if you fail to do this long-term you're done, posters lose their ability to improve because of someone's say so and enter that smug state of disregard whenever they see something they do not like 100%
thus content must be good enough to compensate, this is the trickiest part because for large boards you have "there's like more than 1k people shitposting here there's GOTTA be at least some that know their stuff" but for small boards there's fucking nothing
core of my argument is that while enforcing "good posts only" policy WILL work and bring probably bring you that initial middle ground 5 pph average around the clock (I mean just look at zigger /v/ they're managing) it's not going to GAMERS RISE UP after that on it's own because people that hate their posts wiped leave, events and such will probably help (t. did more than 10 gayme nites) but the effect would be IN SPITE of rules, but because of them
>This is the fundamental difference. You seek to gather a crowd and argue, promising fun, idea and truth. I seek to gather the old-timers and slowly integrating lurkers. While both can end up with a strong user base, it is possible to be overwhelmed immediately if advertisement is effective.
there is no compromise when it comes to gathering a crowd, arguing, fun, ideas and truth
there is also no compromise with gathering the old-timers and slowly integrating lurkers, that much I will admit
however, worrying about getting overwhelmed with lurkers after advertisement is stupid because ONE
EFFECTIVE ADVERTISEMENT IS RARE
what kind of shit would go straight from 4chan (habit formed: shitpost) to altchan and start posting there instead
he will of course start lurking first, how did 8ch get it's lurkers? from 4, even now some people on 4 are acknowledging 8's existence as net gain rather than loss
TWO, USERS MUST BE STRONG ENOUGH TO DEFEND THEIR BOARD'S CULTURE WITH SHITPOSTS
strength is to be used and instead of HUGE TIDE WAVE OF NEWFAGS you would probably get a full-blast water spray from a broken kitchen sink, which is more or less controlled
"just be strong wew" is a stupid answer but it works and will keep working should you stay committed to the reply button
also tides come from major events like e-celebs mentioning your shitboard or a super major happening and it's really something that doesn't happen, so planning out that far ahead is useless - even if it's a risk, you have to roll with it because there's so much to gain
>Keeping the bar high while purposefully letting new arguments happen mitigate this problem.
you keep the bar high by MAKING HIGH QUALITY CONTENT for your board, not jannying the low quality content
while "it's MY board to run" accusations and "NO TIME!" exclamations would be put here it's ultimately what makes people come lurk, content
if you can't trust others to post good things not at banpoint, do it yourself, I'm here writing a shitpost at 6 am, through that you know that you can do it too, through that others can know that they can do it too
well, not everyone's on the top of their game :^^^^^^)
>Posters who don't take the least amount of time to find that same old argument and soy faces shouldn't even be here at all. 
this board doesn't even have 1000 posts yet so I don't think it's even right to fall back on established arguments
"lurk more" may not really count when there's not much to lurk and we're not swamped with new posts, so there's nothing wrong with just EXPLAINING what is incorrect
you can call it spoonfeeding but the board is in infancy
>It is not never shitpost and argue, but to limit it during the growth period and lift it afterwards. This is done to filter out bad actors but still rise the flag of this great new land where the BO is one of those oldfags he is trying to gather.
on the contrary, at the start you're trying to suggest your, excuse the HR-tier language, "core values", that is to say what you WANT the board to do and be so that after 90k posts you can bitch about "WE LOST OUR CORE VALUES" that is to say ERRYONE DOESNT POST GOOD SHIT ANYMORE TIMMY HAND ME THAT SHOTGUN IT'S TIME
I want "core values" to be a good board where your posts stay up (contested territory)
and where good posts exist
and where good posts are replied to
that's really fucking it, limiting anything right now will give "we USED TO HAVE THIS WHY CHANGE IT REEE" argument to rulecucks and you really can't pull your punches with those bastards because they want to be in a comfy zone and it's a bitch to drag them out, for their sake included
as for bad actors, to see someone acting in bad faith and make an example doesn't mean you HAVE to del, could just shitpost really hard
>I agree arguing with bad actors can be useful as an example for lurkers. But that should not be done at the first stages where nobody but the bo is arguing and gets overwhelmed by nigger hoards.
no, argue
if they repeat themselves link your previous posts, if they keep being intentionally stupid and don't argue make fun of them, if they start spamming, spam in response and outdo them, I really shouldn't explain this
I've seen enough ways to deal with SITUATIONS CONTACT CONTACT to say that ban&delete is very, VERY optional for small boards like these

trying to figure out a unified system of response against spammers, bad actors and lurkers at THIS stage in the game will end up a downside, to make things grow you have to get sufficient bait for people to come and this is easier said than done - did you forget how centralized most of the internet is already? so don't underestimate things and handle each situation case by case, use your bloody wits

In the context of giving advice to normalfags, they don't know what either is doing. So in that sense the advice works and it's also why he recommends phones over Windows and MacOS. The fact that they are basically locked down kiosks made for consumption of content is irrelevant (to him). With Linux and its kernel, I'm not sure there are many people in the development team that know exactly how it works. But it's at least open to inspect, like >>807 mentioned.

>>805
>By being bluepilled and/or retard not digging deeper I guess?
If you dig deeper, desktop security as a whole is a fucking joke because that's not where money in big tech is. And it's especially apparent on Linux, where it's basically an afterthought made by enthusiasts. The good thing is that, as one of his guides shows, with enough autism it's manageable. But you'd need a source-based distro with a large amounts of tweaks, combined with jumping through hoops when you want sudo escalation, to make an optimal setup.

Technically things like Windows, Mac, and android are more "secure" than linux. They're all incredibly locked down and give the user very little room to do anything that hasn't been inspected by some mega corporation. Apple devices in particular are arguably hands down the most "secure" because apple are such jews that they completely refuse to let people side load software on 90% of their product line.

The ability to do whatever the fuck you want with your computer comes with security risks, and this is what people are describing when they say linux is technically more insecure. I'd argue that it's perfectly logical to argue that privacy does equal security, but technically speaking these are different concepts.

The OS landscape is reaching a point where it almost doesn't matter anymore which which OS you use as long as it's getting updates. No matter if it is Windows, Linux or Mac OS, they all can be set up to be very secure, at least if someone competent configures them.
Of course Windows is the OS that gets attacked the most (in a desktop environment! People sometimes sound like that's everything that exists.) because of its huge market share, so a Windows user needs to always stay alert and shouldn't trust anything that is an executable.
And there's the open source argument for Linux that was already made ITT. But that isn't really a question of security. It just increases the trust factor because you know exactly what's going on. At least theoretically. Most Linux users probably have never taken a look at the sources, maybe even temporarily disable signature checking when pacman is fucking up and there are vulnerabilities just like anywhere else. So I don't think open source makes a huge difference in practice. There could be backdoors and shit in Windows but they also couldn't be there. The problem is really that nobody even knows.
Not impossible to find out, but people would rather decompile some 20 year old piece of abandonware no one cares so they can brag about it with their real name. I think sometimes passionate open source proponents cheat in their arguing when they almost treat illegal things as impossible.
Of course open source makes a huge political difference, can't argue with that. And there's probably nobody who really needs more than one Windows machine, many normalfags who just want to browse the web, write emails and use office could be as happy with something like Manjaro or Ubuntu.

Sure but this is trust based, will you trust an os from multinational companies that gives out their encryption keys or provides malicious backdoors to government and other actors in breach of all existential privacy laws(that don't matter because it's closed source and thus hard to verify in a court)? Of course not. Nobody with a working mind would trust such people with their Personal Computers and sensitive information.


>There could be backdoors and shit in Windows but they also couldn't be there. The problem is really that nobody even knows.
We know the backdoors for a fact since '98. Even bitlocker had when it came out a literal encryption cheat-code for zog shomrim.

We know that windows is positively spyware, Windows 10 even admits this to it's users blatantly without hesitation upon install ... "We may use telemetry to identify you better by your typing better", "We may send information to Microsoft or our partners at any given time(which they do)", "By agreeing here to the EULA you forfeit your privacy as null and void and so-on" The end.

As for the evidence there's a metric shitton and only requires a small amount of research.

>So I don't think open source makes a huge difference in practice. There could be backdoors and shit in Windows but they also couldn't be there. The problem is really that nobody even knows.
But we know that a plethora of backdoors in closed source exist, while a user with adequate knowledge in unix/linux can uninstall and disable features he does not like, and combat this at many times, easily implying the fault not severe enough.

>And there's probably nobody who really needs more than one Windows machine, many normalfags who just want to browse the web, write emails and use office could be as happy with something like Manjaro or Ubuntu.
I agree with the sentiment here but auto updates should be shunned and canonical has been caught installing amazon spyware more than once. I think linux mint is more suitable for the average users, but as long as corps force their users at their work to use winblows and persist on winblows based systems because of it's blatant exploits and vulnerabilities over the years. 

It's a huge unsolved problem when many big firms do get held for ransom after crucial data has been stolen, and many firms do actually pay these ransoms to get their million dollar data back and prevent it from being distributed, believe it or not and due to the sensitive nature of this and NDA, it rarely gets brought up apart from insiders of course.

3D modeling programs like autocad are very hardware intensive from what I understand. If they didn't recommend a minimum spec requirement or a specific laptop then I suggest looking up benchmarks online or asking on reddit for more tips. I've never used 3D modeling software myself so I can't confidently answer your question.

Though I'm fairly certain for that kind of workload you're not going to want t go with some decade old used chinkpad. Those are only useful for writing and reading. You could probably get away with some 1k gaymen laptop, but as I said you're much better off asking people on leddit who are in the same field as you to suggest a viable budget solution. Retards around here will parrot shit they've heard without understanding the context and fuck you over.

Also as >>1010 says if you don't actually need to travel around anywhere with your machine then there's no reason to get a laptop and can multiply your performance per dollar many times over if you opt for a desktop.

Take your pick. Some will be significantly easier for retards to use and some harder, so sift through them and find which one suites your use case the best. Signal is the hot buzz right now but I haven't used it myself since it requires a phone number. I've used tox but the software is a little rough around the edges. Jami and jitsi might work too, element is rough software but also an option. Like I said, you'll have to test it all out for yourself.

I've heard they're going to move to eventually let people sign up without phone numbers, but until then it's useless to me personally. But it's better than the alternatives if what I'm hearing is correct, so if normalniggers are willing to switch to it and you need something to chat to them over you're better off with that than the other shit they tend to use, I guess.

In C, is there any way to convert the bytes of a string into an integer at compile-time?

I want to make a bunch of global variables like this:
int SOMETHING = string_to_int("ASDF");
But I can't figure out any way that lets me do it since in order to define a global variable and set it's value at the same time, the value needs to be a constant. I have to create and call a separate function that sets the values, and that's fucking annoying when there's a bunch of these.

By converting string to int I mean something like this:
#define string_to_int(n) (int32_t){(((int32_t)(n[0])) << 0) | (((int32_t)(n[1])) << 8) | (((int32_t)(n[2])) << 16) | (((int32_t)(n[3])) << 24)}

Do any anons know of any headphones like Apple earpods (not airpods)? I got a pair from someone for free and they were great. They sound fine and even though they are hard plastic, they are incredibly comfortable because of how they sit in your ear, to the point where I forget I have them on. The issue is that they eventually broke, like every wired component Apple makes. I even bought a fake pair from a store near me just to hold me over and they were just as good, but I've given up on those because they always end up breaking somehow.
I'm not sure what that form factor is called, but I've tried other headphones of that sitting in the ear type in the past. They've never been as comfortable (to the point of pain) and/or they have shit audio quality. I'm not really an audiophile so I was looking at IEMs through several guides but they look like earbuds and I've had trouble with those in the past in regards to comfort as well.

they function as batteries and surge protectors. if your power is blinking out for a few seconds then a UPS will keep everything running as if nothing happened. I have one for my home server and there have been more than a few occasions where the power cut out for a few seconds but it kept it running without a hitch. the UPS for my server is at least 20 years old, you can just replace the battery every few years when it stops holding a charge. however after enough time the lead acid battery explodes and could damage the unit itself, so you'd have to buy a whole new one if that happens. it's unlikely to cause that much damage though.

Other than being more of a pain, is there any downside to loading functions at runtime from a dynamic library with dlopen/LoadLibrary, compared to statically linking the library?

For example maybe there's some runtime cost (not counting the initial loading of the functions) to calling function pointers like that? Or maybe they're identical and only differ in the fact that one is more manual. I can't really find any meaningful explanation to what the difference is beneath the surface.

By statically linking, do you mean static libraries, or using normal shared objects but just linking it with -lfoo so you don't have to manually dlopen them?
Because if you have normal static libraries, nothing will beat them. Especially with LTO, when the compiler can just inline functions into your code from the library.
For shared objects, though, loading them with dlsym and storing the pointer is usually faster than letting the linker do it (in case of shared objects, the compiler/linker usually creates a stub, and normal code calls the stub, and the stub calls the actual function in the shared object)
See here for more details: https://nullprogram.com/blog/2018/05/27/
But on the other hand, as soon as your function does anything non trivial, it doesn't matter much

I'm pretty surprised to hear this. I prefer this method because it helps avoiding bloated as fuck headers that slow down compile times, you have more control regarding error handling in case the library is missing or something inside it is missing, and it increases consistency in case modifications in the dynamic libraries are expected. But if it's also faster to call functions that way, then I'm seeing nothing but downsides to using the "normal" method.

As far as I understand, dynamic linking allows you to "Extend" programs using dlopen (heh), save disk space/memory and just update the library without recompiling (which doesn't always work)...
...But on the other hand, dynamic linking causes more runtime overhead,  especially if using (((lazy binding)))  and dynamic linking can be a security hazard (but then again you could argue that static linking is also a security hazard...) , if you load a library that glows in dark.

Replies: >>1263 >>1280
>>1262
If you watch videos that compare gaming laptops with their desktop alternatives it should shed a light on why laptop GPU's are such a meme. I believe a laptop RTX 3080 for example performs at the level of a 2070 desktop GPU, and within those laptops there are a lot of SKU variance depending on the cooling solution being used, meaning one GPU can potentially perform 50% faster in another laptop despite being the same silicon.

You're essentially paying a premium for a GPU that will perform at a fraction of the FPS of its desktop equivalent. And it's also now locked into that package so if any other component breaks your expensive laptop gaming GPU can potentially become worthless because the motherboard shit the bed or something.

Gaming laptops are a lot better than they were 10 years ago, but generally speaking it's almost always more advisable to avoid them. But that will depend entirely on your lifestyle and use case. There could be a certain scenario where it's simply the best option available to you even if it's a shit option.

It's less about compression and more about P2P distribution methods.
I don't know the ins-and-outs of the entire thing, but it's more reliable to split a single large file into several smaller parts and distribute it. That way in case somebody deletes/corrupts one or several of those parts on their seedbox/computer by mistake/malice/malpractice, the leecher will still be able to download it from another seeder.

my main 8TB HDD was an external that I just ripped out of the enclosure. Voided the warranty, obviously, but it was about $30 cheaper than just buying an internal one even though they're both the fucking same. If it breaks, the last thing you'd care about is the warranty anyways, since you just want your data back which they are not going to cover.

Is the entire fucking universe built on Windows? Every single one of my IT courses has been Windows-focused and only mentions Linux in passing and rarely (if ever) explores it any deeper. I don't give a fuck about Windows Update or group policy or domain controllers or whatever the fuck they use, I want to learn more about bash and the kernel and how Linux is by design immune to 90% of security bullshit. The only time we actually went over Linux was in my eCommerce course, and after two weeks the professor backed out because the entire rest of the class couldn't figure out how to set up an Ubuntu live USB or install Apache.

>I don't give a fuck about Windows Update or group policy or domain controllers or whatever the fuck they use, I want to learn more about bash and the kernel
Then you learn about iptables, unix permissions and unix utilities. They still achieve the same things as their counterparts on Windows do.
>and how Linux is by design immune to 90% of security bullshit.
Linux isn't immune to anything. You don't just install Linux and are safe. Of course it isn't targeted as much by malware because Windows is used more, but it's really common on servers and they get hacked all the time. In the end it comes down to configuration and using your brain. Both operating systems can be very secure if configured the right way and very insecure if they aren't.
Of course they are different from each in many ways but they are nowhere near as different as you're trying to imply. Your way of thinking is a sign of inexperience more than anything. Unix isn't some axiom of computing that teaches you everything and Windows isn't some kind of alien technology.

But to answer your question, you could just try but you'd risk damaging your HDD even more. If it is a HDD failure and not some filesystem shit like in my case. I once managed to back up an entire 1TB USB drive when it was dying. If you can image the drive with dd or something like that it will be bootable. If you copy all the files on Linux it probably will fuck the windows ACLs. I almost tried that but had little hope rsync would actually preserve these.

Don't worry about machine details, these are the last step of optimization, and you're worrying about it before even having a program.
In practice, chances are your compiler will figure out the range the array index goes through and pick the fastest type that fits the bill behind your back. To help it do its job in this regard, remember to properly declare functions and file scope variables static. This helps the compiler with proving ranges.
There is also another important mantra to go by, "never trade clarity for performance". It's even possible that reducing the clarity of your program will make you unable to reason about it at a higher level and keep you from making decisions that actually improve performance like picking the proper algorithm.

Use either int or size_t depending on the situation. For instance, poll() returns an int count of file descriptors, so just go with int in your iterator.
If you're going to iterate over something with so much state you'd never be able to store more than INT_MAX instances of it, go for int, this is part of why file descriptors are int.
When you're iterating over a buffer of some sort, always go for size_t. 
When in doubt, stick to size_t. You can't go wrong with size_t iterators.

Things like that are universal whether it's Windows or Linux. How did you install youtube-dl? To be available as soon as you launch cmd from prompt, it needs to be located inside a specified path. "Windows path environment variable" search query will give you more information. I'm assuming yours isn't there and is just stored somewhere as a portable version. To launch it, just navigate there with the command prompt and do what you've been told already.

Depends on your configuration and level of customization.
Research known problems for software you use on the upgraded system.
Either do that or learn about your system to gain enough knowledge to solve problems after upgrade.
Upgrading is usually safe.
Downside of not is either security, bugs, features or future dependencies. Not a good idea to go with. If you want to install something later on, it will depend on newer software which all your software may depend on and cause a great headache. You better do it when you are not in a rush (now, given you have taken the time to make a post), rather than when you really have to.

Hello tech. I'm a humongous retard who still uses wangblows 10, and today it feels twice as slow as yesterday along with what I assume is the stock fan revving on and off in rapid cycles. To remedy the latter issue, I went into the BIOS and told the fans to run at full power constantly, which seems to be working in an okay fashion; the fan still cycles, but not nearly as often as it was. But, computer still feels extremely slow for whatever reason. (I had no such problems with the stock fan yesterday either, and computer had all dust cleaned out of it probably about 2 weeks ago.)

You could try if the fans work properly when you boot a Linux LiveCD (which can be a USB flash drive) This way you can verify whether it is a software problem or hardware problem (aka broken fan). A LiveCD (or LiveUSB) can be used to boot the system without installing Linux to your HDD/SSD. If Linux didn't work properly either, then you should probably try to update the BIOS or replace the fan.

1. Download for example this distro: https://xubuntu.org/
2. Then use Rufus (https://rufus.ie) to create a LiveUSB.  Note that Rufus nukes the USB flash drive before it writes the distro .iso file on it.
3. Plug in the flash drive and reboot your PC
4. Press the relevant key to access the boot menu or BIOS settings and select your flash drive as the boot device.

If you don't like XFCE (the desktop environment that Xubuntu uses), you could try Kubuntu (which uses KDE instead of XFCE)
Screenshots (you can also find videos on YouTube):

> Kubuntu: https://kubuntu.org/feature-tour/
(I couldn't find screenshots page for Kubuntu. The KDE project website has screenshots, though: https://kde.org/plasma-desktop/ and https://kde.org/screenshots/)

Ah, thank you. Fans have quieted down again now, thankfully, but I'm definitely saving this post for when I'm ready to switch over to Linux finally. My computer was uhhh running slow because I put it into power saver mode based on some retard advice on google for dealing with the fans. After I switched it back to normal it's running as good as it had been. They're weird, because they do their cycling for a short duration and then they become quiet again for a while, then cycle again for a short duration and so on. 
I'll have to look into switching to xubuntu this weekend, with some freed up time.

You're probably better off experimenting with distributions and desktop environments in virtual machines before installing linux on bare metal.

What is a good way to archive a lot of data (tens of terabytes) relatively cheaply? You can get tape cartridges cheaply, but drives are fucking expensive. DVDs are small as shit and only last a few years, I don't think blueray is much better either and still pretty small. So anything else, except buying shitloads of overpriced HDDs?
Replies: >>1624 >>1626
>>1623
External HDDs are usually cheaper than internal ones but are the same design. You can just smash open the plastic casing and take the drive out. Some of them do have proprietary connectors though, I think WD does that but not Seagate.
>>1623
You can't beat tapes in terms of storage per dollar. Try looking for a used drive on ebay or chinkland. At tens of terabytes level, storage per dollar is the most important, unless you need hot access to the data.

Is there anyone who knows how this shit works? I mean most of them are sas, but I'm currently out of non PCIe x1 slots on my mobo and most PCIe SAS controllers require x4+, and there are like 28 incompatible connector types for sas because why not, and the same for the 38 trillion different tape formats. Also ebay is full of these enclosures without a drive for $200+ and I fail to see their purpose. Also there are those RDX things where the drive is cheap but the tapes are ridiculously expensive.
So, any TL;DR guide for retards?

Windows is occasionally giving me the "request failed due to a fatal hardware" error. It's like a drive is just disconnected for a split second and then instantly comes back.  Over time this has happened on many different drives, so I doubt it's a bad cable or drive. What's the most likely, is my SATA controller fucked, is my power supply (500W) too weak or dying or is it not actually a hardware error but a Windows bug? Not sure if it ever happened under Linux and not sure if I could even tell because the way I know Linux I/O it would probably just block for a few seconds and then continue as usual.

Look in dmesg for sata errors. As you said, linux usually retries random IO errors a few times before giving up, so a drive that gives random errors might appear to work correctly.
My case is worse, sometimes my notebook starts throwing I/O errors, and the ssd becomes completely unusable until I turn the whole machine off and on (a reset is not enough). I just can't pinpoint whether my SSD or SATA controller is fucked, because this sucker use some kind of non-standard size mini sata, that they used for something like 1 year before everyone jumped to M2, and I don't want to buy a new ssd with this snowflake form-factor just to figure out that the SATA controller is actually dying.

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 >>1657
>>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.

Searx is objectively one of the best choice of search engines, maybe the best. All other search engines are non-free, with the unfortunate exception of Yacy, which would be the best solution if everyone starts using it today. Searx is foss, you can host it yourself. It solves the search result problem not by throwing bucks on crawlers and infra. It did it by being a meta search engine, so you get to get the results of many non-free search engine and mitigate their bias. It provides a level of anonymity if many people use the same instance or jump between them, even searching through Tor won't be as efficient because of biased non-free search algorithms. At this point, Searx is Install Gentoo level of "meme", and they are not really memes,

thats basically just another wine
c code already runs on unix, the problem is only the code using windows dlls and libraries which could easily be replaced with unix compatible ones if ( !!! IF !!!!  ) the devs showed their source code

thats why 99% of programs work in wine after just emulating windows style directories, just having a C:/ directory is enough to get most programs to work, this has nothing to do with compatibility its purely the dev hardcoding windows into the program the changes required would be minimal in most cases, its the same with windows libraries, there are unix versions that provide identical functions and could easily be substituted but no one gives a shit and so the only way around it is to either decompile the binary and manually find and edit the broken code or emulate the windows environment, 
both of these 'solutions' are for a problem that shouldnt even exist in the first place

why does C feel like the only language that is real
like you can actually visualize the instructions that it gets compiled into very clearly, you know what gets initialized and what gets allocated and how it will be done and in what order, its such a clean language and lets you build things the way you want them to be, even after compiler optimization it still behaves exactly the way the code says it should

every other language is like a black box, you have no idea what the fuck is going on after compilation its like youre telling an ai what you want as code instead of actually writing  the code, it feels fake and unnatural if that makes sense, writing in C feels like programming, everything else just feels like, I dont know, not programming
Replies: >>1701 >>1702

C provides less abstraction and forces the programmer to deal with more low level problems. The further the programmer is from the bare metal, the more difficult it is to imagine what the compiled code looks like.
>>1700
Because C was made as an abstraction of Assembly, while other languages are made as abstractions of programming itself.

Some ancient amd card, they can suck. But can't you use the radeon driver? That ought to work better than some generic vesa shit that knows nothing about your card, and maybe you'll even have opengl and not just some software renderer shit. Maybe.
And if it's a laptop, your display probably doesn't support any other resolution besides 1366x768, the gpu has to do the scaling, which can be borked depending on the driver.

My boot drive is a mess and I'm trying to figure out how to unfuck it without making it unbootable. Right now there are three partitions on it: an 8MB unknown partition that I assume has GRUB on it, ~280GB of unallocated space because I'm a retard, a 5.6GB boot partition that I'm not sure what it is exactly, and the rest of the drive has my OS on it. Also, even though the disk is GPT I don't see anything indicating it's EFI and therefore it only boots with the CSM enabled. Questions:
>What is the difference between the 8MB and the 5.6GB partitions? I assume one has GRUB and the other has some other significance in booting but I'm not sure.

Open them in a VM. But I think it's unlikely a pdf will have a virus, and even more unlikely that your pdf reader will be able to be exploited by the virus if one exists. I think the latest state level pdf virus required people opening it to enable macros or something to execute scripts which is how NK hacked a bunch of SK state actors. So essentially your PDF reader has to have a vulnerability that allows scripts from a PDF to be executed freely for the file to do anything malicious. And that's unlikely to be the case if you're using a standard FOSS reader that's kept up to date.

Images can also contain viruses, but those viruses can generally only be executed if there's a flaw in the image viewing software you're using to open the image. At least this is my understanding.
>Also how can I tell if I'm infected seeing as there aren't really any AV solutions for Linux?

Linux allows you to use GPT even if you boot it in BIOS/compatibility mode

>What is the difference between the 8MB and the 5.6GB partitions?
Honestly that question can be only answered by you because you installed the OS. The 8 MB partition might be used for EFI ESP but it's really tiny (the recommended size is 550 MB) You can check it by mounting the 8 MB partition: sudo mount --options=ro /dev/nvme0n1p1 /mnt/mountpoint

>5.6GB boot 
That's where Linux kernel and the initramfs are usually stored. It should be around 256 MiB - 550 MiB

>Can I delete one or the other and realign the partitions to use the rest of the drive?
>Delete
Yes, if you reinstall it

>realign
I assume you mean resize? Yes, gparted can resize a partition but the partition can't be in use. You need to boot from a LiveCD and then resize it from the LiveCD environment.

>Is there anything I can do to make it boot without using the CSM?
Reinstall OS and create EFI ESP (ie. mount the EFI ESP partition to /boot/efi directory)

You don't need to reinstall it. But you are looking at a lot of rw on your nvme drive.
Verify your drive is in GPT, not in MBR. (As root, parted, then print)
If it's in GPT, you are in luck. Otherwise, you will have to repartition the drive.
Assuming it is in GPT, because unallocated space is larger than /, you can create a small /boot (fat32) then create a partition at least as big as your /. Then dd from that to your new big partition. Delete the old /, expand new / to cover all space.
Edit fstab, install grub(in efi mode)/efistub.

If it's in MBR, get another drive as a buffer for your data. dd to an img to it. Repartition in GPT, create /boot and dd the image back, then expand partition, edit fstab and install bootloader.
You can sha512 the partition to make sure the data is the same.

Ok and that's it?
So how do I get started with building my own PC from the ground up? 
The two things I really need from it are:
 * being sealed (watercooler or something) due to my room being constantly dusty and dust having fucked my last 3 computers over the years 
 * being small so I can stuff it in a backpack when taking a plane (rather than trusting the baggage container not to break my pc in two), I see that are very small pc casings, but I also assume that a lot of care selecting the parts will be needed to ensure stuff will fit.
So first thing I did was google "build computer" and got myself a link to a website that lists parts and whatnot, but soon I figured I have no idea how watercooling works and plenty of parts are probably not compatible with it.
I am not in a rush so I want to get it right, thus, I came asking for help.

I will be liquidating my bitcoins for this, so although price is not a big of a concern, I still want cost efficient parts.
I also want to know anons opinions about buying parts nowadays, considering crazy inflation is about to hit the US.

"Watercooling" doesn't make your computer any more "sealed". Watercooling is just the act of moving heat away from components faster so the heat can travel to a radiator where a fan exhausts or intakes air. The airflow of the case doesn't really change. And there isn't that much performance increase from watercooling either, especially not for games.
>being small so I can stuff it in a backpack when taking a plane (rather than trusting the baggage container not to break my pc in two), I see that are very small pc casings, but I also assume that a lot of care selecting the parts will be needed to ensure stuff will fit.
This is more of a reason to go with some sort of AIO liquid cooler over a tower cooler because they can fit in more niche form factors, generally speaking.
>I am not in a rush so I want to get it right, thus, I came asking for help.
Building a PC for the first time while not incredibly difficult is daunting. Building a small form factor PC is doing it on hard mode since even veteran PC builders will run into issues with part compatibility and unexpected clearance issues.

You're probably best off watching various jewtube guides and taking at least a few weeks to research and get a fundamental grasp on how everything works. If you don't know what something is then look up a primer on jewtube to learn the concept.

I was under the impression that you could put the water cooler radiator outside of the casing, so that no air ever needs to get inside, and thus no dust could ever get inside either.

What's watercooling good for then? I kinda always wanted to try it, but I have a feeling that other than "looking cool", it doesn't really have any advantage over standard air cooling, but it's a lot more hassle.
Replies: >>1829

That sounds quite niche. I don't think I've seen cases that do that.
>>1828
Custom water cooling is just a way for people with too much money and time to waste both of them. Liquid AIO's are allegedly better for "portable" systems you might move around a lot since the weight of the CPU cooler is more distributed and won't do some crazy shit like sheer off the motherboard like a big tower cooler might with enough jarring strain, but that's quite specific. Liquid AIOs have the issue of more failure points like pumps, leaks (rare), or evaporation that occurs after 5+ years making them work very poorly eventually.

Clam antivirus is meant to be used on your Linux servers (primarily mail servers) to scan files that are going to be opened on a Windows machine. To answer the antivirus question, the architecture of Linux makes this very hard and you're basically at the mercy of your own skills at configuring the firewall and sandboxing the software you install (ignoring the gigantic blind spot of all the old as shit Linux modules you have running if you aren't compiling it yourself).

>>1824
Do you trust the baggage handlers with your monitor? It sounds like you just need a laptop and put in place some measures against dust, such as a dust filter over the openings where the air goes in and out. Same filter would work on a regular PC case, just don't be a lazy shit and clean it regularly. If you really do need a desktop PC, an option at keeping it small would be to buy a smaller motherboard, a mini case and a CPU with a decent built-in GPU. Watercooling is painful to maintain, if I had to go that route I'd just submerge everything in mineral oil.

>>1834
Just sort as >>1837 suggested, Unix tools are better off combined than looking for an obscure flag to do everything with one program.
