Intended for users of all levels, including absolute beginners.

There are four ways to try Linux, you can:

1) Install a Linux OS on a VM (Virtual Machine/VirtualBox) for "safety purposes"
2) Use the Live ISO directly without installing anything, that way, you can get a "full Linux experience".
3) Dual-boot Linux with Windows/Mac (recommended if you want to learn more about Linux)
4) Go balls deep and overwrite everything with Linux (not recommended)

Before asking, please find the answers to your questions in resources.

Please be civil, notice the "Friendly" in every Friendly Linux Thread.

Understand that much of your software from Windows will be unavailable, although maybe wine can make up for it.

while "world" is often used, you should use "other" there, since that's what the commands use

like "chmod o+x" meaning "other set execute", or enable execute for other

perhaps add a footnote/postscript that says that other is also known as world, as in the phrase "world writable"

if you tried to install the amd proprietary driver, uninstall it, that card is too old for it

then make sure xserver-xorg-video-ati is installed, the free driver still supports that card

then reboot (technically not required, but less instructions to follow)

Moving onto a new NAS Server. Coming from ZFS and kinda lost.

I don't understand this LVM vs RAID thing. Is there a way to install RAID before LVM? Some people seem to be doing it and getting flamed for it.

Also, any major difference in what to expect would be nice. Apparently I need to scrub more often.

Anonymous 2016-01-24 07:09:12 No.52591116
you put LVM ontop of MDADM if that's what you're asking
you can use ZFS on linux as well, if you'd prefer

LVM isn't required for RAID

mdadm = linux software raid
lvm = logical volume manager (unrelated/independant of raid)
zfs = covers both functionalities (datasets work like lvm logical volumes)

mm, all of those projects have a lot of functionality, and in the case of mdadm and lvm, can be used together in several different ways

you can technically raid with lvm, but it's only spanned volumes (not redundant, so it's very technically a jbod)

you can think of lvm as like a "filesystem of partitions" (again, think datasets, just not exactly the same)

if you don't need lvm, you can forego it and just use the single device mdadm creates to put regular partitions on, or format it directly (mdadm makes an /dev/md? device as the raid, which you use the same as you would /dev/sd?)

Anonymous 2016-01-24 07:45:43 No.52591438
>Apparently I need to scrub more often.
didn't respond to this, yea, you should

ZFS verifies checksums on reads, which means things you read often are scrubbed often naturally

mdadm doesn't do this, only a manually-invoked scrub can check for inconsistencies (and obviously, you need a raid level with parity to fix any errors along the way, like raid5/6)

usual practice is to use a cron job or similar to peridically trigger a scrub operation

Why is Nvidia such a piece of shit. So I installed Arch on my main PC finally, using it happily on my laptop.

Anyway here's the situation. Before installing nvidia drivers, all 3 monitors are working - mirrored - in the TTY before I login which is set to kick off X. After installing the nvidia drivers all the monitors went dead after booting. Great. Anyway, after some research I figured out I had to edit grub with 'nomodeset' inside GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT. So I do that and reboot and tada, now a single monitor is working in the TTY. Well I guess I can live with that, it's really annoying because it's my worst and smallest monitor and I generally have it turned off so if someone knows how to fix this please tell me.

Finally I boot into i3 -and fix positioning etc with xrandr- where I encounter a small but irritating problem. It seems my monitors identify incorrectly, while I would call them monitors 1 2 and 3, they call themselves 3 2 and 1. This fucks up the start workspaces putting 3 on monitor #1 etc. Now again, I CAN work around this, reorder my config to suit etc. But this is kind of dumb and annoying and there MUST be a way to simply tell the system which monitor is which. Possibly connected to the original issue where monitors 1 and 2 -or 3 and 2 according to linux- don't work in the TTY.

Send help senpai.

So I spent days trying to get Debian to Samba share a NTFS external drive over my network to Win7/Android clients. I tried everything every which way: I edited fstab to get the drive mounted so permissions could be edited, I had nobody own the drive, I have the smb.conf edited to anonymously share the drive--nothing worked. The closest I could get was the share folder could be seen but never accessed: either credentials were asked for or Windows said it couldn't find the network location.

While googling the umpteenth different facet of the problem on the third day, I saw an offhanded reference to caja-share (my Debian install has MATE and Caja). I read what little there is on it, saw it's supposed to Samba share folders Windows-style (right-click, Share, boom, done), apt-get install, ... it just werks.


The only trouble is, I haven't learned what sorcery it used to make what I'd been flailing around with work. It didn't add anything to smb.conf anywhere that I can see. As much as I appreciate it making the share work, I'd like to know how so I could at least (incorrectly) justify wasting another 3 days with loonix doing what takes moments in Windows. Any ideas where to look?

Anonymous 2016-01-24 09:33:06 No.52592359
It's the samba.conf.
I'm on manjaro, tried to make the share work for a week, but nothing worked.
Finally I installed thunare-share-plugin, and copied the samba.conf for it.
Everything worked beautifully.

There is also the SMALL possibility that the virus could affect Linux as well.
Refer to my link in the post you quoted
>Wine does not sandbox in any way at all. When run under Wine, a Windows app can do anything your user can. Wine does not (and cannot) stop a Windows app directly making native syscalls, messing with your files, altering your startup scripts, or doing other nasty things.

So having PoL is better than having WINE only since you have a separate wineprefix for each application, and simply deleting it will remove the malware.

Any compton experts around here?
>inb4 compton --backend glx --paint-on-overlay --vsync opengl-swc
whoever keeps parroting this should fuck off

so my exact currently flags are
compton -CGb --backend glx --paint-on-overlay --vsync opengl-swc

basically some existing ones I had from who knows when, possibly the crunchbang default or something + the meme flags

current situation:
>I still tearing (is it even possible to not? what the fuck)
>there's no always display lag with video playback whether it's from youtube, vlc, or mpv

The new lag combined with the tearing has lead people who normally watch anime over here to complain. I had already gotten complaints of tearing in the past and tried my best to fix it, but now the lag has made people tell me to just not bother until it's fixed. What do?

okay so I realized I left out important info, mostly that I'm using an nvidia gpu

sounds like vsync in nvidia-settings can conflict with compton vsync and cause more tearing
