It depends on the age of the Nvidia card but I've had the biggest issues with upgrading drivers causing suddenly loss of functionality.
Replies: >>8931
Loss of functionality is the least updating your Nvidia drivers would do. I lost a card to bad drivers (364.72) and apparently it wasn't the first or last time they did something like that.

It's a program that compiles the binaries for you. 

I have no idea where the fuck I found the base Rom with the right hash so you can just have mine.

That's pretty cool of them. Penumbra has been open source for a long time now, but that game's niggerrigged together using an old 2D engine of theirs and most of the modding attention went towards Amnesia instead.
I assume that means the assets are still proprietary like usual when these releases are done. Not that I'm complaining, it just means that it can't be distributed as a complete game until someone knocks up some freely licensed alternatives.

Are you running it with Wine. Have you checked WineHQ etc?
Replies: >>10023
Yes I checked WineHQ and nothing worked for me, the game did run once when I installed it though afterwards when I started the game again its stuck in this "technical difficulties" limbo. Most of the solution of that referred its because of a missing ini file which I did checked several times and it didn't changed anything.
Replies: >>10024 >>10770
The thing with that .ini file is that sometime it's not present and some times it's not  correctly filled, you need to have a functional one from someplace else, it's also a problem on more modern windows so you can try to find the correct shit that way.
I'm probably retarded and it might be obvious, but does anyone who has experience with i3wm know how I can have windows move to a second row after X amount of windows are opened? I want it to open windows horizontally for 5 windows, then open them on a second row for the next set of 5 windows, so on and so forth.
Replies: >>10070 >>10764
I am unaware of this being a built in function, maybe there is a way to define a layout behaviour but I only know that from dwm.
You'd probably need to make a script for that, the same way the guy who made the autotiling script did. Maybe look through his code for ideas?
Install it in an XP vm and copy over the ini maybe? If that fails you can try creating a separate new Wine environment and installing the game there.

Thank you both, sorry for the late reply.

No idea. Just use Lutris if you want that sort of experience without Steam.
>100MB of unused space at the start and end of the drive
Before you go fucking with things you should ask why this is the case: why did whatever you used to partition it in the first place leave it? There might be a good reason, I'm sure I read something about it being a good idea not to go right up to the limit but that might have been to do with the overhead in a partition instead and the fact you always want a bit of space for fragmentation/fsck issues, my memory isn't great.
If you had a legit copy and still have the key you can almost certainly download Win10 from some microsoft link somewhere and burn it to a DVD or whatever, it'll bitch about registration but you've got that. If on the other hand you pirated it I assume that to be possible with Win10, never cared to look into it I don't see what the issue is with just repeating that process.

I have a technical question.
I made converted a gif on /b/ into an av1 webm video. >>>/b/1470 FFMPEG chose gbrp as pixel format by itself.
It has a higher colour accuracy then the same video converted to regular yuv444p.
However it decodes incorrectly in ffplay, ffmpeg (when converting back) and VLC and correctly in Chromium and mpv.

The "call" part already allows for near-perfect tracking of your position via triangulation, that's my point.
That's why spooks don't carry a phone at all when they really need their presence to be hidden, instead of carrying an approved phone: the simple act of communicating via radiofrequencies makes you susceptible to tracking.

You could always have mathematically lossless webms if you simply encoded them with RGB color space, then the resulting video will be 100% identical to the images it uses, and at good file size too. The only drawback is you can't play it on the web, so you have to re-encode it in YUV 4:4:4 color space which is only visually lossless.

>What is gbrp exactly
It's another name for the RGB color space, some codecs call it gbrp, some call it bgr0. VLC sometimes shits the bed with RGB videos, I don't know the technicalities as to why but it's a known bug from what I remember. Your best bet is switching to mpv like the rest of the loonix world.

IIRC ffmpeg had a bug with RGB videos when encoding in x264, but not VP9, where the output would come out all glitchy. I think you have a different bug though...

I didn't realize you were replying to me. The FBI doesn't spy on Americans. They get the NSA or CIA to get foreign intelligence services to do that for them. Traditionally, that is. It's probably not legally considered spying if they let Google (telcos may be different) collect data on an American and then serve them for it.

How is AMD for GPU passthrough? I've been planning on putting together a proper computer this year to replace my old Dell XPS 8900, and I'd like to ditch Intel/Nvidia if it's feasible. Probably won't get the newest stuff; I don't plan on spending more than $1000.

Wrong, there's AVIF now, which supports all colour spaces. And for RGB video you can use AV1. As you can see it works in Chromium.
>IIRC ffmpeg had a bug with RGB videos when encoding in x264, but not VP9, where the output would come out all glitchy. I think you have a different bug though...
It encodes just fine. It just doesn't decode correctly. Chromium and mpv do.

I'm a little interested to learn about watercooling after going through the trial of dusting my PC. I know that the heat exchanger uses some fans so I'd have to clean that, but if I could have a PC be pretty much hermetically sealed that would be awesome. What are some of the costs involved? Can you modify the power supply to be watercooled as well? What's preventing me from hooking it up to house plumbing besides the inconvenience of installation?
virt-manager is as easy to use as VirtualBox.
Yes. Don't use virtualbox.
Seconding virt-manager if you don't want to get your hands dirty with lower level stuff.

Your PC doesnt have dust filters? You could just make a DIY dust filter and tape it on your PC, I did that on my old PC.
recommended hardware? or anything can do it?

Your self-preservation instinct. You need distilled water to do watercooling, and even then you'll get shorts if you don't thoroughly rinse every component in a clean environment before sealing it all up.

I've never tried it myself so I can only repeat what I've heard. Nvidia has problems with their drivers spitting errors in the VM since allegedly they broke PCI passthrough with their GPU's on purpose, but there have been work arounds and it's not for all GPU's from what I've heard. I've also heard it said PCI passthrough configs are easier to do on intel, but I don't know why that might be.
>recommended hardware? or anything can do it?
Anything that can do passthrough.

Also I believe there are specific motherboards that work better than others. You're best off asking on leddit or a forum to get a better idea of the best hardware for it.
Totally incorrect, the reason you want a closed loop system is because no matter what you do, particles from the tubes, fittings, blocks and radiators will dissolve in the liquid and it's better to have it reach a saturation point instead of constantly erroding your components. This is also why you don't want to mix copper and aluminium components.
Not to mention that tap water on a continued basis tends to bring sediments with it which would cause problems over time.

Give lookingglass a look
You can get external radiators and if you place it at the beginning of the end, you could use an internal radiator to cool the air for the PSU, I wouldn't fuck around the PSU itself though. Plan your loop well before you have a go at it, it will make your life down the line much smoother if you can sensibly drain and refill the thing if needed or get to components without spending a day. Not sure about the overall cost right now, I'd target 200 bucks for everything and with a decent quality.

KMS toolkit is outdated.
Search for KMS_VL_ALL, there's a few repo on github with a similar name but you want the one from kkkgo, it's as far as I know the most legit  one.
Just search for Massgrave's repo, you'll find various open source activation scripts there.
>and FFS backup your data
That is what he did.
He should do it on another drive because all storage mediums can break from software or hardware failure.

>keeps giving error "Unable to satisfy all constraints on the partition"
Did anything happen? Like did it erase your primary partition?
Just copy the data without fucking around with partitions and delete the obsolete partitions.
Always make back ups on another hard drive.
RAID 1 should work too but it doesn't protect you from your own stupidity or software errors which just happened in your case.

Switching to the non-dkms drivers worked. False alarm.
Though having to install different versions of the driver for each kernel isn't very elegant. Perhaps there's another way?
