Sorry, I don't want a a large chunk of my OS controlled by RedHat, A company who's largest customer is the NSA.

Joseph Morgan

Then you shouldn't go for GNU/Linux at all, since RedHat has been already one of the major contributors to that even way before systemd was a thing.

Dominic Fisher
Dominic Fisher

You list the most important answers (not that I personally care about the "weight"). If you don't understand them, I'm not sure I can put them in a way that will change that.

It's not really that it offers specific advantages for programming (though it is helpful), it's that it agrees more readily with the way programmers think.

One of the other big things I like about Linux is the software repositories and package management. Software management on Windows and Apple feels archaic compared to this now. Going to some random website and downloading a program, or buying a disc with the data on it, installing in some idiosyncratic process, updates handled on a per program basis. It's weird.

Any good, updated, noob-friendly guide to xorg.conf? My Debian doesn't recognize the max resolution of my monitor and the tutorial from the Debian Wiki doesn't work since it doesn't create a conf with the necessary modelines.

I already set up a xrandr script that adds the modeline and changes the resolution at boot, but the TTY still looks tiny and that triggers my autism.

Mason Howard

But RedHat's contributions to Linux have been audited. Systemd is so complex and large that it hasn't been fully audited yet. Also it's suspicious how RedHat wanted to push Systemd on all the major distributions so quickly when a init replacement wasn't such a huge priority.

Colton Flores

Sebastian Perez

The Linux kernel is larger and more complex than systemd.

Also it's suspicious how RedHat wanted to push Systemd on all the major distributions so quickly

one of the major commercial linux players
main business model is support
gee how can we possibly make more money
i know how, let's make everyone else use our project and that way we can get more money from offering support to it

There, your "mystery" has been solved, idiot. Sorry if it's not conspiracy enough for your retarded mind.

init replacement wasn't such a huge priority.
Says who? Are you a top contributor to a distribution? Are you a member of the RedHat board? It obviously was a huge priority for them, otherwise they wouldn't have spent their money and resources on it, idiot.

Noah Rogers
Noah Rogers

They spent the money and resources on systemd because NSA probably contracted RedHat to make a low level init that also acts as a backdoor. This isn't far fetched since the NSA tried to backdoor the Linux kernel 3 times and failed.

Anthony Hill
Anthony Hill

in free software whose source everyone can read

Kill yourself, you retarded, conspiracy theory nut. According to your logic, you should stop using the Linux kernel at all. If you don't stop using it, you're a hypocrite which renders your arguments invalid.

But the linux kernel has been fully audited, systemd hasn't. And it is very easy to diguise backdoors as bugs in OSS ex. Heartbleed bug.

If your still too retarded to understand to reject systemd, here's a short video summarizing the arguments against systemd: youtube.com/watch?v=GNUGjFzenq4

If you are an actually shill employed by RedHat, I highly suggest you kill yourself. You only make the world worse acting like a cancer. I will even ship you a noose if needed for free.

BTW, in the time you have been shilling on Cred Forums, I already have a functioning Void install with lxqt.

When you say "linux kernel" you're obviously expected to talk about the official release, not some fork which even has its own name to not be confused with it.

iv bought an openvz vps, and one of the available gnulinux distributions are gentoo, I want to use it because it is a bleeding edge distro. I've tried to, but I ran into many problems, the first of them is that portage version is too old, when i try to update it, I get this error message: "error unsupported eapi 5"

Python version is 2.5
portage is 2.1rc1(I think)
linux is 2.6.32

ricing guides
Yes, you install themes, apply them and change options.

wifi isn't working
That's not enough information to troubleshoot and issue. Either way, by the way you worded it, it's impossible to help you fix it.

is it good for kubuntu
There is no "good for [distribution X]" software. The same version of a program will work the same on every distribution.

Yes, you remove it with your package manager.

You can install the programs you use on Kali on Slackware too, you know.

Well, you either can go and research on how to manually copy bash into your system so you have a chance to fix it or you can just go and re-install.

If you find trouble go here and show error.

Ok, i run "emerge --sync" and all is good.
i run "eselect profile set 1" and run "emerge portage" to update portage itself
now the error is showen again: "!!! ParseError: Profile contains unsupported EAPI '5': '/usr/portage/profiles/default/linux/x86/13.0/eapi'
and do not tell to install python3 i know emerge need only python2

I usually generalize it a LOT. If it's forced out of me I will say I use GNU/Linux, and I will generally support unix-like systems in general and not say what distro I use unless it seems really relevant. That aside, I actually really avoid discussing this most of the time. It kind of gives me anxiety because of how normies will attack you if you don't use Windows. It's hard to describe, but I guess it's like Microsoft is their friend and I have personally wronged them if I'm not using Windows. It actually gets a bit scary. Both in the sense of "wow there are people this stupid/crazy" and in the more direct sense of them getting loud and aggressive.

ive installed ubuntu last night and i had tremendous problems with my internet connecection.
although it established ive had a download speek of 50kbit/s.

ive found the solution to the problem anyway.
it is in the network card of the laptop, a realtek 8723be.

the hack around it was to install the proprietary driver from git, however, the internet was still very slow.

the ultimate solution were following commands

modprobe -r rtl8723be #for removing
modprobe rtl8723be ant_sel=2 #to connect

question:
is there a way to execute this when I boot or do i have to type this in manually everttime?

Systemd is so complex and large that it hasn't been fully audited yet.
Where are people getting this bullshit? There are dozens of examples of other programs that are just as complex as systemd (or more so), and no one has this complaint about them.

Examples: The Linux kernel itself, various compilers, internet browsers, version control methods (git, mercurial), and probably tons more I that I can't think of off the top of my head.

All of these are comparable to systemd in complexity, meaning that they're constantly evolving and changing nearly every day because there's tons of features and bugs that need to be addressed, and that landscape is always changing over time. These programs can't ever be "fully audited" because they're changing too often. But, because they're all FOSS, anyone can go through the code at any time and raise an issue about it.

Also, RedHat working with the NSA in any capacity doesn't automatically taint all of their FOSS endeavors. Even SELinux is fully free software.

So unless you can find some actual evidence that systemd has malware/spyware, then stop pretending as if it does. If an issue like that is ever discovered, then someone will either fix the issue or make a fork that doesn't have the issue. That's how it works.

AND, if you still want to be an overly-paranoid weirdo, you can use a variety of other FOSS init methods that still work just fine.

Yes, this is normal behavior. It happens when you press O within one second of Esc when your vim is nocompatible (specifically, esckeys is on).

See :help esckeys for more info, about how you can either ruin your arrow keys or set a shorter timeout to avoid this.

Justin Nelson

This has been answered literally hundreds of thousands of times. If you're happy with Windows, stick with it. I went to Linux because it runs great on older hardware, handles ram usage much better, doesn't grind my fucking hard drive to death when I'm literally not doing anything on it, and a LOT less likely to have viruses/malware. Oh, and if the file manager crashes for some reason, it won't take half the PC down with it.

GNU/Linux is free/open source whereas Windows and Mac are proprietary. That's pretty much the main reason.

Free/open source software benefits over proprietary:
- doesn't hide its intentions from you (proprietary software must be reverse engineered, otherwise you put your trust in the owner/maintainer)
- running it as you please (no drm)
- dissecting it, learning how it works
- modifying it for your own needs
- sharing your modifications with others, so that they get the same benefits

So yeah, muh freedums is the primary reason GNU/Linux even exists or has any prominence at all.

perl -ne 'm/inet (.*)\/.*dynamic.*/ and print $1'

This will run on every line of output, the and before print tells it to only print output when there is a match, so although it runs on every line, in this case its only going to print once.
m/blah/ is how you tell it to match something, the (blah) is how it knows what belongs in $1 for print. The rest is basic regular expression, .* matches any characters of any length. dynamic is there so that it prints only dhcp assigned ip addresses instead of the static ones like your loopback address.

You could probably do it with grep but I don't know how so I use perl because its simpler to me.

The 22 22 is internal port and external port, upnpc --help to see how its used.

ssh is pretty secure in its default configuration as long as you have passwords for your users, you may want to change the port part 22 22 to something like 22 2322 so that its forwarded from a higher external port to avoid most attacks.

Then by that logic, unless void ships with libre as it's default kernel (it doesn't), then that totally invalidates the argument about systemd, since you're still using a very large part of the system that hasn't been audited.

David Bailey
David Bailey

Port forwarding, basically you need to identify each part of your network where traffic is being filtered. Since you're a noob, it's probably just at your router. To break it down simple, most routers also act as firewalls that allow your computer to reach out but they don't allow other devices to reach in. You need to configure your router to allow external devices to reach in by specifying which ports people are allowed to communicate on and which devices on your internal network that traffic should be forwarded to. Your router has an IP address that is recognizable and routable on the internet and your computer has a different IP address that identifies it on your local network behind the router; You need to tell your router that any traffic on whatever ports you want to use needs to be sent to those ports on your computer.

This is a pretty basic rundown and glosses over some of it, but it should help you understand any articles you read. Be careful what you forward, you'll be exposing it to the public internet unless you know what you're doing with a proper firewall setup.

David Johnson

That's why I'm asking for help here first.

Got any good guides you can recommend before I start sifting through the thousands that are on the internet? I have a very basic idea of how it works; my poor wording is in part due to English not being my first language.
Just so I understand this correctly: When I type "what's my IP" into Google, it actually returns the (external) IP that identifies my ROUTER on the internet, not my pc / phone / laptop that are connected to it. If I forward e.g. (pc local IP):21 to external port 2121, then an outsider could connect to (router external ip):2121 and send data that shows up at port 21 on my pc?

/sys/ is populated by your kernel, it isn't a physical filesystem really more of a file based way to control parts of the kernel, that script just unbinds drivers from PCI devices and then gives control of the device to vfio-pci.

I don't know what happens to the pci devices after that but if you reboot all pci devices are re initialized and the Linux kernel handles loading the drivers so you should be in the state you were in before you ran the script.

lightweight
Important because responsiveness. Also, you just don't want to waste resources when you can spare them for other programs you might want to run in the future.
Plus, it's one of the very basic postulates of programming philosophy - "less is more and more is less". Stuff that is less complicated and more light has less bugs, more security (because there isn't quite as much to attack), it can be easier to grasp for a programmer or a sysadmin. Sure, everything can't be lightweight, sometimes you need something heavy, but it's overall better to go in that direction for many purposes.
control
Open-source is quite literally about putting control in the hands of the user. It's only natural you would get some fucking control out of it.
Even Linux kernel can pretty much throw out almost every feature it has when not needed. And the whole system is built up from projects from different people, even on its most basic level. This hinders developing a uniform system somewhat (which is why DEs are a thing, having a separate project just for that is really the only way), but it leads to well-defined interfaces between programs, increased awareness of the ecosystem by developers and many things being non-essential for a system or exchangeable with other options. Which naturally leads to lots of control over your options.
Also, the fact that like 90% of Linux programs are open-source and you can put a hack to support your favourite program whenever you want, and maybe even push it to the people who develop it, helps too.
command line
Scripting capabilities. Programming is done in text, and scripting is "programming lite".
It's good for complicated tasks since text is so flexible. You do need to learn it before you can use it efficiently, though. It is pretty much the power user way of interacting with your system.
Also, command line programs tend to be more lightweight too. Graphics are hard on computers in general.
All your reasons are perfectly valid.

Robert Anderson
Robert Anderson

Open Source means that you can look at the source, that's all. It does not imply any freedoms of control. Furthermore Linux includes binary code, which basically makes Linux proprietary software.

Austin Fisher
Austin Fisher

Download Portage from github and install it manually from there, then reemerge the portage package.
The other options is to emerge portage from overlays where there are packages which don't need EAPI 5. A look at zugaina site tells me poly-c overlay and ROKO__ overlay have one ebuid each which are written with EAPI 2. You would have to have layman though, or download it yourself somehow. Afterwards, if the work at all, the can be used as a bootstrap.
Not much you can do if portage doesn't support your ebuild EAPI. Basically, your package manager doesn't support the protocol which tells him how to emerge the package manager.

I'm currently installing gentoo, and I'm trying to figure out which profile to get.

What exactly is the difference between these? (.. is default/linux/amd64 since I don't plan on using hardened)

# eselect profile list
../13.0
../13.0/selinux
../13.0/desktop
../13.0/desktop/gnome
../13.0/desktop/kde
../13.0/desktop/plasma
../13.0/developer
../13.0/no-multilib
../13.0/systemd
../13.0/x32

(with systemd options for the DE's)

I guess my main questions are these:
What exactly is a profile?
What does it have to do with a DE?
Why am I just selecting one DE here if you can have multiple?
What would /13.0/desktop do?

Or am I misunderstanding something?
open source means that you can look at the source
Legally, yes, you would need at the very least a BSD-style license to guarantee the minimum freedom needed for absolute control over your software.
I meant that historically the movement arose because of these motivations. Thus, "open source is all about control". Well, OK, "free software is all about control", I guess.

Kernel-level security is a kind of vague term. Windows and Linux both have kernel level mechanisms for controlling memory access, and preventing arbitrary code execution.

Just because they spy on people in some ways, that doesn't necessarily make everything they touch and do about spying. SELinux is licensed under the GPL. If it is used for spying, then you should be able to find some code proves that it does.

Until proven otherwise, it isn't spyware. It's an additional security layer that allows for more control and precision than standard Unix permissions, and it's completely open to be examined by anyone. That's why its used by Fedora, a very adamantly free/open source project.
