that's for one of the linux threads
not sure about /home/
maybe dd

the merge is gparted how to, there may be a yt video tutorial
boot a live cd
start gparted
select sdc2
partition
delete
select sdc3
partition
delete
select sdc4
partition
delete
it may do the merge by itself at this point
partition
resize/move
that's my guess, idk if ext can be expanded while in use, you can also have a swap file instead of a partition
then you'd have to reinstall on sdc /which would be sdc2/

Thanks for the tips, going to try out an aggregate of a few tutorials I found online. Main problem is I wasn't thinking when I was going through the Debian setup, so I thought "fuck it, why split it to separate drives", then realized immediately after that there's a fuckton of packages I'd need, and that alone would probably fill up the SSD.

New semester just started

I picked software engineering (2nd year)

First thing they talked about is how the course is not about programming but how to "work efficiently with people" (aka corporate bureaucracy)

Is this stuff really practical to a codemonkey career? Should I drop this course?

Being able to work in a team is pretty fucking important, but not enough to spend thousands of monopoly moneys learning about it. Find a course where they teach you something useful, like either how to write reusable, effective code or programming principles.
Pick up a book on the SOLID principles. You will be a much better programmer because of it, trust me.

Is uploading a doc file to Google docs and downloading it at home "lossless" or does Google docs have some propertiary gimmicks? I need it need for texts heavy of notes. It's for editing texts at library with a windows tablet. Is there any other portable doc editor?

Wyatt Jackson

If it's documents, then it should be lossless. Images should be too, but don't quote me on that.
Google has way too many server warehouses to care if your docx is a few extra kB.

I meant breaking the doc file that has editorial notes embedded in it and other more than text content. Doc files used to glitch when edited in different software but that was few years ago, maybe that changed now.

How do I turn the Excel table that contains Name | Value1, Value2... into a table that looks like Value1 | Names.
For example I have a table like
X | 1 3 5
Y | 1 5
And what I am supposed to get is
1| X Y
3| X
5| X Y
I havea feeling that doing that manually like everybody else in office are doing isn't optinal.

even if theres no other people connected to your wifi, other wifis or other signals can interfere with your connection.

What would cause my internet to be so fucked? A couple days ago I got fibre installed and now on my main pc every so often I won't be able to connect to most websites, aside from a couple like Cred Forums. Anything google related e.g. Youtube and captcha on here are fucked during these periods. Usually I can solve these issues on my own, but I have no idea what to google aside from "everything on the internet is fucked aside from Cred Forums". By fucked I mean it takes an infinite amount of time to load and usually results in a "page took too long to load" at the end or only the header loads.

whats your setup? just a standard router->modem? is your desktop wired? do you just use your ISP's DNS server or do you use someone elses (like googles)? what steps do you take to "fix it"?

Luis Anderson
Luis Anderson

A desktop pc running windows 10 over wifi. Just using a router/modem given to me by the isp, so I think I use their DNS too as I haven't touched that. So far I've turned the modem on and off, flushed the DNS, did the thing where you generate a new IP address through CMD. But I'm not sure what else to do, as I don't know what to google to get accurate results.

Grayson Hughes
Grayson Hughes

connecting directly with an ethernet cable will always be better than wireless. if you can use a cable do it.
also you can try getting a "wifi analyzer" for your phone and opening it to see wich wifi channels are more saturated. you may change your router to a less saturated channel to get less interference.

Anthony Harris
Anthony Harris

where you generate a new IP address through CMD

that isnt a real thing, you probably just mean /renew/release/etc right? anyway that doesnt give you a new ip but it doesnt really matter in your case since your ip isnt the issue (as long as you have one). if its not giving you a dhcp error than you have an ip and youre good to go.

if i were you, i would boot into a linux distro on a USB drive on the same computer and see if it behaves the same. that would be a good way to limit the issue to the actual internet and not your windows install/drivers. if both behave badly it could also be a failing wifi card.

you should log in to your router and see what channel/signal your computer is connecting on and check the error log for any issues. you can typically do so with 192.168.0.1 (your default gateway)

Long story short, I downloaded something and it is packed as a .srep file. The folder has a file called srep.exe which I assume it's an equivalent to 7zip, winrar, winzip, etc.

I have a problem with USB ports on my Windows 7 machine. Whenever I plug in a USB stick, the explorer stops dead in its tracks and after a while I get a blue screen memory dump and a forced reboot. But if the PC boots with the stick plugged in, it works fine. It's definitely a software issue because the same thing works well on any OS besides W7. Attempts at reinstalling USB drivers from various sources do nothing though. What could be the cause of this shit?

I need some help troubleshooting a boot failure on my roommates pc.
Motherboard leds and (((rgb))) turns on when the pc is plugged in, but it can't be turned on (not by the case switch, nor by removing it and shorting the pins directly).
We've tried unplugging and replugging all the connectors, reseating the gpu and ram (and booting with 1 and 0 sticks of ram).
Also tried unplugging the ssd.
I'n all cases the fans do not spin up at all, nothing whatsoever happens when the power button is pressed.
Google in general tells me that this is probably PSU related, but idk.
the PC is ~2-3 weeks old, self built and worked fine until he left for a vacation a week ago. It's been unplugged those days, and is now borken. Do we RMA the PSU?

Hello my friends. I have built a computer, however I have a question about the fan controller that I put in it. It is a lamptron fc-2. It is powering six fans, but it looks as though they are not spinning at full power even when i crank that bitch up all the way. The fan controller has three molex connectors, I'm only using one. Would plugging in more make the fans spin at full force? If so, should I use one PSU port for each cable or would a triple molex power splitter work just as well?

Landon Robinson
Landon Robinson

HDD and SSD are both fine. Make sure you boot up the ssd every few months, otherwise they're pretty interchangeable. Both have a few % chance of dying any given year of active use. There's also archival DVD/Bluray disks if you don't need to store as much. Whatever you do, make sure you're never relying on a single copy. The more the better, ideally at a different location or cloud.

I have 2 external USB3.0 drives, same model and what not, so I'd assume they've got similar performance. Since these are the results from over USB3.0, would it be worth stripping the enclosure to install them over SATA? I've got plenty of SATA connectors and cables to spare, so it isn't a problem.
Also, if I were to do that, would it also be worth it to just RAID 0 them or something to get some extra speeds? Or would it just be wasted on such weak drives?

When opening a image from the folder with feh directly it works, so it shouldn't be a problem with it.

For some reason when trying to play a game with my Dualshock 4 controller on Windows 10 it causes massive fps drops and the fps drop stays even after unpairing it. The only way to fix it is to restart the computer. But when I play with just a keyboard and mouse my fps are normal. Any advice in fixing this? This controller has worked fine for the past 6 months but now doesn't work. Only thing I can think of that is different is that I don't have internet access right now.

had random latency spikes that would last for hours
replaced all the equipment and turned off anything that's not the direct ethernet connection to the PC
shut down all connections/updates/torrents until network traffic was 0%
Traceroute says the first hop is the culprit
went to ISP with this information
they increased my speeds for a week as a diagnosis test
latency gone

What could be the issue here? Also the spikes were a recent issue, I went a year with no problems on the same equipment/setup with nothing changed.

This might be a very stupid question but how do I turn off the screen on an AndroidOne phone?

I have a Xiaomi Mi A1 and 90% of the time when I press the power button to turn the screen off, the camera turns on. I don't even get what changes the behavior between those two.

Same for when I want to unlock the phone. Press power button and 9 out of 10 it opens the camera. At least I can use the fingerprint thingy and the phone simply unlocks. But no such workaround for turning it off.

After wasting a lot more time than I should've I had almost made Tree Style Tabs usable again. What I've come up with is adding this to userchrome.css

/* Hide horizontal tab toolbar */
#TabsToolbar {
visibility:collapse!important;
}

/* Hide sidebar "tree style tab" title */
#sidebar-box[sidebarcommand="treestyletab_piro_sakura_ne_jp-sidebar-action"] #sidebar-header {
display: none;
}

/*hide shitty not-titlebar with min, max, close buttons that appears after you hide horizontal tab toolbar, even if you have titlebar turned of in 'customize' options */
#titlebar { visibility:collapse!important;}

/* move address bar a bit lower so it doesn't appear clipped */
#main-window[sizemode="maximized"] #nav-bar {
margin-top: 5px;
}

Already better than what the maintainer of TST tells you to do, but still not good enough. Anybody knows what do I need to add to remove the invisible close, minimise, expand buttons that are still clickable if you move the mouse all the way down?

If you can give more details on what you're stuck on I can probably help better. Like give a minimum example of your XML document and what you want to retrieve from it.

For some reason Cred Forums didn't like the C code I tried to include. Here's an XPath example with libxml:
gist.github.com/anonymous/2a0995ffd42a2ec132d6c69dacb63e75

This is assuming you have a document like:

<foo>
<bar example="hello"/>
</foo>

To get the attribute "example", the expression is:

/foo/bar/@example

should I share part of the code I have so far
Always a good idea.

Coincidentally this is almost exactly like the above example, with an expression of:

/posts/post/@file_url

Since you're only interested in reading the one string value you could also do

string(/posts/post/@file_url)

and take the xmlChar * stored in obj->stringval (for robustness, testing if obj->type == XPATH_STRING before attempting to read stringval)

You'll just have a memory leak. xmlNodeGetContent allocates memory so you should free it when you're done with it. If you only call it once though it's not a huge deal but be careful if it's used in a loop as each iteration will consume more and more memory that never gets free'd.

Grayson Phillips

Of course while you should get if fixed, there's other alternatives you could try. Using the second XPath expression, the memory for the string is allocated as part of the xmlXPathObject and is free'd with it when you call xmlXPathFreeObject, so no need to explicitly call xmlFree:

obj = xmlXPathEvalExpression(BAD_CAST "string(/foo/bar/@example)", ctx);

if (obj->type == XPATH_STRING) {
std::cout << obj->stringval;
}

xmlXPathFreeObject(obj);

yeah geforce isn't really a driver, it's a program that will auto update your drivers but also comes with a shit ton of other bloat and analytics.
If you go to the manufacturer's website only download and install the drivers that aren't titled something like "game center," because those aren't necessary.

so i googled the problem, skipping all the "solutions" that tell to patch the headers, which is waaay beyond the knowledge of a beginner such as me, and found this:

i don't get why something like f(x) can be a variable but lano1106 said that i can use free(). tried it, it works. i guess i'll manage to work things out from this and the example you provided
i'll keep that as well in case i'll have a problem with memory
one more thing: if i want to get two values at once, i just have to do this part twice or is duplicating variables enough?

obj = xmlXPathEvalExpression(BAD_CAST "/posts/post/@file_url",ctx);

if (!xmlXPathNodeSetIsEmpty(obj->nodesetval))
{
xmlChar *value = xmlNodeGetContent(obj->nodesetval->nodeTab[0]);

they will know you are using a vpn, but they cannot/will not do anything about it.
ISPs really do not give a shit about what you're doing with your internet. They'd much rather have you paying them for service than worry about whether or not everything you're doing is legal.
That's why when people get caught torrenting the ISP only sends a letter out of obligation, but they will almost never act on it.

Jack Ramirez

I guess you don't really need the check actually, the XPath string() function will always return a string even if /foo/bar/@example doesn't exist in the document. So just

obj = xmlXPathEvalExpression(BAD_CAST "string(foo/bar/@example)", ctx);
std::cout << obj->stringval;
xmlXPathFreeObject(obj);

Free should be fine, as you saw with

(char *) value
in my example you can cast xmlChar * to char * without problems if there are no non-ASCII characters in the string.

You can do it twice, or write a function if you're going to want to retrieve multiple values.

xmlChar *getFirstValueByXPath(xmlDocPtr doc, xmlChar *expr)
{
xmlXPathContextPtr ctx;
xmlXPathObjectPtr obj;
xmlChar *value;

ctx = xmlXPathNewContext(ctx);
obj = xmlXPathEvalExpression(expr, ctx);

if (xmlXPathNodeSetIsEmpty(obj->nodesetval)) {
value = BAD_CAST "";
} else {
value = xmlNodeGetContent(obj->nodesetval->nodeTab[0]);
}

xmlXPathFreeObject(obj);
xmlXPathFreeContext(ctx);

return value;
}


This returns the xmlChar * value of the first node matched by the expression, or an empty string if the expression returns no nodes. Use it like:
value = getFirstValueByXPath(xml_doc, BAD_CAST "/posts/post/@file_url");
std::cout << value;
xmlFree(value);

value = getFirstValueByXPath(xml_doc, BAD_CAST "/posts/post/@preview_url");
std::cout << value;
xmlFree(value);

Adrian Robinson

Slightly more efficient in this case might be to retrieve the <post> element node and then retrieve the attributes from it individually with xmlGetProp:

xmlNodePtr post;
xmlChar *file_url;
xmlChar *preview_url;
/* ... */
obj = xmlXPathEvalExpression(BAD_CAST "/posts/post", ctx);
post = obj->nodesetval->nodeTab[0];
xmlXPathFreeObject(obj);
/* ... */
file_url = xmlGetProp(post, "file_url);
preview_url = xmlGetProp(post, "preview_url");

std::cout << file_url;
std::cout << preview_url;

xmlFree(file_url);
xmlFree(preview_url);

This way you're not traversing the XML tree from the top twice. Your example was a very small XML tree though so there's not a huge difference.

Bottlenecker is a good enough site if you know what it's telling you, and that its recommendations aren't always reasonable or cost effective things to build. (And it recommended I replace my 1080ti with a 1080ti.)

Its numbers are for average games. What it's telling you is whether some parts of your system are massively overpowered compared to other parts, under an average gaming workload.

Having a bottleneck means that some parts of your system are good enough to go faster than the whole system is going, and that it's being held back by one or more slow parts. For instance, consider an extreme case: you put a 1080ti in a Core 2 Duo system. Playing pretty much any game, the performance will be horrible and way less than that 1080ti can pull. However, there are three instances where this might be an acceptable build:
1. The Core 2 Duo is your old system, you're buying parts over time, and the GPU is the first of them.
2. You got the GPU dirt cheap somehow, may upgrade the rest of the system later, but just want the rest to perform as well as it can for now.
3. The workload is not a typical game. For instance if you're running all-CUDA compute tasks, a Core 2 Duo system won't really hold a 1080ti back much.

What thebottlenecker is really telling you is whether you have extra performance capability in some of your parts that you aren't getting any benefit from. If you upgraded one part, you would get better overall performance, and this is what its recommendations are for (except when it suggests something retarded like a Quadro or a mobile GPU). Or you could downgrade the other part without seeing any degradation in performance.

So, if you're looking at an all-new gaming build with parts at market prices, a bottleneck means you could allocate your money better. If you're upgrading, a bottleneck may mean that you're wasting money on a part that won't perform up to its full potential in your system but could be worth buying anyway if you upgrade soon.

Usually there's an option in settings for default app install location. Or Settings->Apps, tap an app, and in the details screen there should be an option to move it to the SD card.

Another note: The ZTE phones I've seen set a hardware write lock on the system partition when the bootloader boots into it. This does help protect against malware getting into the system partition. The only way to modify it is to flash a custom bootloader like CWM or TWRP and do it from there, since it's unlocked in the bootloader.

Windows usually displays UAC prompts in a separate window station, which is why all your windows disappear when one of those pops up. It's about the equivalent of a separate X11 server.

Cons: It's mildly annoying and breaks remote viewing tools like TeamViewer. It may also add some delay in displaying them on some systems.

Pros: It stops malware from clicking yes on its own UAC prompts.

Disabling it make it show those as just another window on your normal desktop.

Obviously, I think disabling it is more of 'security' risk, correct?

Also, can you please help me decide whether to not Enable, or Disable Virtualization for file and registry write failures to per-used locations. I am going with Enabling this feature, but I have heard there are more risks associated with this? I do not know, I am still learning this weird ass OS. Been using Unix and Mac for 20 years.

ALSO, THANK YOU SO MUCH BASED user!

Landon Gray
Landon Gray

Obviously, I think disabling it is more of 'security' risk, correct?
Yes, since it would let malware click through them more easily.

Registry and file virtualization is a clever workaround to deal with old programs that want to write things to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE or their Program Files directory. When these programs save something there and it fails, this feature would redirect the write to a file in the user's home dir.

If you turn it off and use a program that needs this workaround, you would have to run the program as admin so it can write directly to the locations it wants to. If you aren't using such programs, you probably want to disable it.

Trying to make a java web app project for my resume. What tools do I need to make and deploy such a thing?

I've wanted to use something like jBoss, Tomcat and Java EE, but I feel like there is an easier way to make my project look good without using archaic or over-simplified shit.

Why are all of my 4chanx settings and filters this random mumbo jumbo? I have the latest stable version from github. I dont know when it happened because i havent played around with filters or other settings in weeks
Reverting versions dosent change anything and deleting all settings and then loading a settings file from a month ago also does not change anything

I just finished building a new PC for a friend of mine. Everything worked fine at first, booted ok, installed fresh win 10 no problem. Once it booted into win10, tho, it started crashing. It either stops responding completely, with the screen being stuck at whatever was showing at the moment (it doesn't even reset immediately after keeping the power button pressed, I have to do it a couple of times), or it gives pic related and restarts.
The crashes begin a couple of minutes after booting, and the only things I've managed to do before getting a crash were running windows update (crashed while downloading) and running speccy before crashing (everything seemed normal, besides the cpu temp being kinda high, 60C, and the ram showing up as "unknown 8GB etc")
Any ideas? He gave me most of the parts from his previous PC, only new things were the cpu (an amd ryzen 1600x), an asus mobo and an 8GB stick of ram. I can post exact models if it's needed.

there arent any open ports on my network at school. i want to host a plex server, at least for my use and hopefully for use for others not local. Can I use hamatchi or something to allow this to happen?
also, i have my media on a nas. can i run the plex media server backend on my desktop and target the mounted drive, and then use the plex frontend to view my media?? its just a lot easier to go through all the movies and tv that way as opposed to scrolling through thousands of files. is there another media program like this that I could use if none of these options work?

Gabriel Ross

check the cpu voltages in the bios and make sure its on auto or whatever. try to boot into windows and run whocrashed

Angel Flores

Nothing. Windows Defender is pretty good, at least if you don't love installing toolbars and coupon printers.

The specs page for the CPU you're putting in it will tell you DDR3 or 4 and the nominal speed it takes. Some mobos can use XMP and clock RAM faster than the speed the CPU specifies, but a no-name one is less likely to do that.

Slower RAM will always work and cost less but may not hit the top speeds the board can do. Faster RAM will always work even if it doesn't reach its maximum speed. RAM speed doesn't make THAT much of a difference at least on Intel. Ryzen seems to benefit more from fast RAM.

A really smart TV would hack other peoples' computers and steal someone else's credit card, and use that to order itself a large pepperoni pizza with extra electrons. It would know that using yours would eventually get it punched and thrown out on the curb, but if someone comes calling about hack attempts coming from your IP, it doesn't know anything, it's just a dumb TV.

update windows

No really, I had a Windows 10 installer that had an image from like 2 years ago and if you install it on Ryzen it crashes all of the time. I grabbed a new install image and it worked fine. Try getting a more recent installer.

Also, did you re-apply thermal paste, etc?

Thomas Gonzalez

Check power consumption. If it's close to the PSU's capacity that might be the problem. If you have another suitable PSU you can test it with, do that.

Hi m80s.

> I installed Linux Mint over a week ago, because of Windows messed up system of shutting off, broke it, then deleted linux, windows was still broke, deleted windows and reinstalled it from scratch. But thats on my main drive.

>My secondary drive (2 raided HDD, 1tb, 500gb each) was another victim of my installing of linux, never worked on Linux, doesn't work now on my fresh install of Windows.

>When I try to boot into Linux Mint live CD, it tells me that I should boot fix my drive (which I can't, or don't know how) or mount it as Read only.

>I intend on doing the latter, in order to back it up, format it, get rid of the shitty useless raid, install Linux mint in one of them and format the other one in NTFS to use it as my secondary drive for windows...

>Well, how do I boot into Linux Mint Live USB with my /sdb1 and /sdb2 into read only? Or in windows? I don't care, the only thing i want is to back it up and get over with this over a week long nightmare

>tldr: how do I mount a corrupted internal hard drive into read only state in a Linux Mint live usb (or any other live SO or Windws for that matter) in order to back up the data

>note: my drive is not in a software raid, it's in 2 specific SATA ports for making it raid that ASUS dedicated in the motherboard.

credforums.com/thread/64784210/technology
Currently in Linux Mint safeboot mode, because the drive wasn-t letting me boot in normal mode, i can see it in the file manager program, but cannot mount it...

Thanks a lot for the answers guys

I will try updating the bios and doing that, I looked up the error code before posting here and many people ask whether the person having hte problem had oced, whether the temps are normal etc etc

I actually got windows from a 3 year old iso from tpb, so that might be an issue as well. My friend told me he can get a clean iso of windows 10 "edu edition" from microsoft (he's a uni student), so I'll try installing that and see how it goes

Make sure all the fans are spinning inside and not caught on a wire.
Checked that, no problems there

Also, did you re-apply thermal paste, etc?
Yep. I've installed CPUs and heatsinks plenty of times, so I think it's unlikely I messed up there. As I said, temps were a little high (60C), but not high enough to warrant a crash, and could be explained by the fresh installation of windows initializing, running updates, installing drivers etc.

The PSU is a 750W and it worked fine with the previous system, so I doubt it went overboard just by changing the mobo and cpu. I will look into it, however, along with checking the voltages and updating hte bios.

My current phone has a "private mode" feature. I don't know if this is a new Android thing or Samsung specific. It uses filesystem level encryption. Without root, the files in it are totally invisible when it's off/unmounted, and the only evidence that something is in it is that the used space is greater than the sum of the visible apps and files, and that tapping on private mode brings up a password or PIN prompt instead of a setup wizard.

Firstly, does Windows 10 use serial keys? I remember someone telling me Windows 8 is linked to the hardware and doesn't use serial keys. Is this true for 10?

Secondly, my pc is stuck in a start-up blue screen loop. How can i fix this? I don't have the install CDs or anything.

there's plenty of programs that will stress-test whatever you've overclocked. i suggest OCCT, it has all kinds of tests and features

Blake Jackson
Blake Jackson

run a stress test overnight. if it passes its mostly stable but it might still crash randomly from general use after that. if it does just bump the voltage up a little every time it crashes

Samuel Hernandez

that's much more than just 2 bad sectos. i'd suggest doing a backup and zeroing it. is this a system drive?

No, it's a storage drive I've barely used and I've already backed up any important data on it.

Joseph Reed

Yes, you should always run it diagonally.

Jason Edwards
Jason Edwards

then it's worth zeroing it just in case it's not a big problem
save the current S.M.A.R.T. somewhere. there's plenty of ways to write zeroes. it can be from CMD ("format [drive letter]: /fs:NTFS /p" if i remember correctly) or by using some software (i'd suggest DMDE)
after the zeroing is complete (takes time) scan the surface again, read S.M.A.R.T. and compare it with the older one. if it gets worse on bad sectors then the hard drive will die soon
no it's okay. they are built in a way that allows them to work in any position

Isaiah Adams

by this i mean both on reallocated sectors and pending sectors. the reallocation itself is not a problem if pending sectors don't constantly increase

How do you manually edit a file's meta data info? YTDLGui keeps fucking up the "last changed" date for all mp4's it pulls from jootube so that i have to keep searching for the mp4's manually and re-render them if i want them to be shown at the top of a given folder

Note that 4KDL doesn't have this problem at all but it's a lot more clunkier than YTDLG so i'm aiming for a simpler solution here

What's the most powerful dual core CPU on the market?

Bentley Ortiz

My father had a Lenovo AIO PC that had a wireless mouse/keyboard combo that came without a USB dongle and he is asking if he can still use the M/K with another PC.
I know that this kind of hardware is usually paired with a specific bluetooth device and code and is most likely impossible to use them without them.

My real question is, If I were to remove the bluetooth PCI from the dead AIO and put it in the new PC would it be possible to use the said M/K combo?

How do you make DHCP do stuff ? Like I am having trouble with internet connectivity because my DHCP will randomly decide to not populate the table with more entries sometimes. Like if you delete an entry from the table manually shouldn't it give out a new one ? DHCP is being done by my router.
