>Are you wanting a VNC client on a remote computer to tunnel using SSH?

Yeah, basically that.

>I don't think you can forward an X server.

You can, it's just that X's network protocol is unencrypted and insecure by design. But if I ssh-encrypt it then I can at least be sure it's running between a trusted server and a trusted client through an encrypted protocol. People on the old days used to forward X on a local network.

When you use the ForwardX11 thing on SSH, you can open a GUI program on the server, and the window will pop up on the client's X server's $DISPLAY. I'd like to somehow get the XDM login screen of the server to appear on a different $DISPLAY of the client, log in, and then use the computer as usual, with a remote desktop


 No.1068597

>>1068593

It's pretty cool, you can even have the remote computer do OpenGL stuff with it's graphics card remotely and render the results on the local computer. VirtualGL does that. People are way too unaware about the cool stuff you can do with X, they'd understand better that Wayland is kinda crappy then.

You are kinda screwing up the terminology here though. The machine that gets all the running programs on other computers is the server, not the client. Understandable though. For what you want to do you wanna look into XDMCP. There should be quite a few search engine hits. Be aware that it's all unencrypted though, even the transmission of username and password. Just do it on your LAN, really. In days of <10$ gigabit network dongles you can set a local network up that's physically disconnected from the internet cheap and easy.

Hey, I have a Wordpress-related problem.

My site runs Wordpress, but since like the last week, it doesn't let me access it. The math problem, that's provided with the login is stuck, and it doesn't take the right answer. Like last week it was 2+7, now it's 0+10.

I've tried everything, deleted cookies, restarted everything, tried it on 3 different devices, tried it with a VPN, it's still stuck. Note that all devices (2 different laptops, one is Windows 7, one is Windows 8, plus a Samsung phone) used the same internet. Is this related to my provider?

There's an alternate route to access the site, because what I've told you is the Login with Username and Password. You can log into Wordpress directly, there you must only give your username/email and your password. And here the damned thing doesn't recognize my password.

Another thing to note, that a friend of mine, who lives in another country, could access the site with my username and password. I'm located in the European Unio, she's on the American continent.

What do you think this is? How do I solve it?

Oh, and one more thing: I can't contact Wordpress, because the two level identification crap was not allowed on my account. Should I ask my friend to activate it for me and then try to contact them?

Been using OpenBSD for about 15 years.

OpenBSD is rigorously tested. All of the developers use it. The lead developer avoids running anything other than OpenBSD even when it's inconvenient and he could benefit from tools that don't exist in OpenBSD.


 No.1069202

OpenBSD is fine and good as long as you have one of the three eleven year old x86 machines it actually supports somewhat more in-depth. It might cover a lot of hardware bases but none of them really well. It's quite abysmal and it's poor support more often than not means shit is slower than it would need to be. Talk about waste of resources if you are not fully using the hardware you have because your OS doesn't know how to.

Arch is a pile of shit with poor package management that might or might not break after any given update but will always break eventually. Also systemd. Gentoo is loads better because you're a lot more in control and the package maintenance while being far from perfect usually is more on the careful and sane side regarding what "stable" means. It's also very easy to whip up your own packages. Compile times haven't been a problem in ages now if you don't run it on a casio calculator. You can also set PORTAGE_NICENESS and just have the compiler get the cycles that are left over. I let Allwinner A20 SoCs compile their own updates, might take a day for very complicated packages but it simply usually doesn't matter.

Soldering in a new wire should be really simple. You'll wanna get a wick to soak up the old solder. Apply some flux on the joint. They sell it in pens for easy application or you can get solder with flux in it. I wouldn't go more than 1mm, possibly lower on solder diameter. Just be careful with the iron that you don't burn the pad or hole the wire is attached to. You shouldn't be in there very long. They have plenty of videos on YouTube to watch.

What's a good alternative for CCleaner?

I'm just looking to do occasional one-time scans for users, so I would prefer a standalone program if possible. (And not owned by Avast.) It makes deleting system logs and temp files easier, but the biggest advantage is clearing registry files that aren't needed anymore. (I'm not sure if it's placebo, but sometimes registry cleanups seem to make the computer run faster, or at least less slow than before. I still can't figure out what people do to their computers.) Any other recommendations for general Windows cleanup is welcome.

I use Linux on my own machine. I really like that my computer is still just as fast 5 years later without having to do any major cleaning or fresh installs. Don't use Mint though. I'd switch distros if I weren't lazy. Granted, my old WIndows machine never got as bad as some I have to clean.

tails if you're super paranoid. tor-browser should install as it's own group and has downloads disabled by default. LXDE or XFCE are close enough to old school Windows.

I'm trying to clip a webm from a stream, but eventully something like pic related happens. At first, because of autism, I was clipping out a lossless sgement, and then was encoding that into the final output webm, however the final webm was incredibly buggy. MPV was dropping frames like crazy and the encoding skipped a large chunk of the middle and end too. The webm was about 8 seconds long when it should have been 22 seconds. I thought the problem was because of the lossless video and my potato just couldn't handle that high of a bitrate, but even when I skipped straight to lossy encoding from the stream directly the problem remained. It's less severe now since now only the end seems to be cut out. The webm is now about 15 seconds long, up from 8 seconds, when it should be 22 seconds.

Sorry, I should've clarified a bit better. It does boot on USB drives (with secureboot disabled), but you know when you're going to install W7 and the installer says the installation is missing USB 3.0 drivers and won't progress, so you have to "embed" said drives into the OS' installer before installing said OS in the machine itself? Well, this laptop has no driver dist (or disc drive for that matter) and I can't find shit on the Samsung's website (which sucks ass). I'll keep trying.

you still don't know which usb controller they actually put in, even when it's just an intel. unironically linux could probably tell you which one it is and then go from there. or put the installation on a cdrw so you don't need the usb driver during installation.

>it's the last somewhat decent OS microshit has made.

windows 8.1, and it's supported till 2023. it only got shit because ms went full retard with the metro start menu, but that can be fixed with via 3rd party.

> what Linux is and just wants to use his laptop for some work, and his office runs on Windows so disrupting that by introducing him an OS he doesn't know is pointless effort and might result in inconveniences.

doesn't matter, you could literally just tell people it's the newest windows (because then apparently it's ok, same with office when it switched to ribbon). if he even knows that much and not just clicks the icon that says "internet" and "office".

unless he has some enormous excel sheet or uses word for mass mailing etc openoffice will work just fine. maybe powerpoint is an issue but in the worst case stuff should still run via wine (and should keep working longer than on windows).

for himself or does he exchange it with his office etc? because compatibility with office is usually the biggest issue (otoh office can't even run shit consistently between different versions, so it's not really linux fault).

Most Linux DEs can be themed easily. Distro does not mean desktop environment. Your DE/wm is the only thing that matters in UI customization. A "distro" is just a set of different default software and settings, and the only relevant difference between them is the package manager. In Android terms, distro = ROM (AOSP, Touchwiz, MIUI...), a DE = launcher.

As DEs, Xfce, Cinnamon and KDE are a good choice. Avoid GNOME, Budgie and Pantheon. GNOME is heavy, Budgie is fine but barely customizable and Pantheon is just a themed GNOME.

Linux Mint Cinnamon is generally best to use first when you come from windows, it had a built-in theme downloader/switcher last time I used it. There's also plenty of themes you can manually download on gnome-look.org.

You can also try Mint Xfce and Kubuntu. Decide which DE is the best for you.

Plugins aren't needed unless you're using GNOME.

Remember that you'll make mistakes and maybe break your system, which is normal just like it is when learning windows. So I'd recommend doing some testing on a live USB instead of installing the OS because changes aren't persistent.

I'm not very good with all this dynamic modern shit but in a scenario with no initrd you need all the drivers for your boot device statically linked into the kernel image. I believe in the initrd scenario you can get away with having all the drivers as modules as long as those modules are in your initrd. For your setup that would be nvme.ko (CONFIG_BLK_DEV_NVME), dm-mod.ko (CONFIG_BLK_DEV_DM), dm-crypt.ko (CONFIG_DM_CRYPT), btrfs.ko (CONFIG_BTRFS_FS), presumably CONFIG_EFI_PARTITION (which has to be built in) and whatever crypto algorithms you want to use.

Since you're compiling your own kernel I would definitely forego the initrd bullcrap and just statically link my entire kernel with no module support - because fuck that noise.

I'm getting a lot of random read errors from my external drives, Windows keeps telling me to format or repair the drives, and sometimes they hang up during file transfers. I can't tell if it's the enclosure that's fucked or the actual hard drive(s) themselves. Sometimes an image file will come up as corrupted or be completely fine when I plug in the drive. CrystalDisk says everything is good condition with the two drives, so I'm guessing it's the enclosure, which would suck since I only bought it a few weeks ago. Actually, I'm pretty sure that's what's happening, has anyone had an enclosure fuck up on them before?

Well, first have Wine produce a trace so you can see what leads up to the crash.

The crash is caused by a null pointer dereference so have a look at the return values of the functions called immediately before the crash occurs.

Finally, you might need to disassemble the binary at the point of the crash to figure out what data it expects. When you know what's going wrong you can test it on Windows and fix wine accordingly.

You would give her either a false address or none at all.

Now, your response seems to be utilizing the ancient form of writing , and not related to modern day writing where as soon as i send a letter it can be verified.

I would then attempt witholding my address by masking it with a VPN. But the VPN then retains your address, thus making it visible to anyone looking to write back to me.

The only answer to your question is to not write at all, but to relay my message within ear shot of the recipient.

The problem is i am a cripple mute retard, and i really do want to get my message sent without having to leave my moms basement. How do i do this without being traced?

So you seem to understand that no matter how you route your packets, you will be giving your address to someone. So why ask these ridiculous question? Regardless of what you do on the current client-server internet you will be traceable if someone wants it enough.

It depends on the file system and your actions afterwards. The most important thing to NOT DO is write to the partition after the deletion, as this may overwrite the data marked as deleted.

If it's an ext file system you can use extundelete. I would advise if it's system disk you deleted from, to remove it from the machine it's in and boot from something else where you can freely write stuff (like installing extundelete) and keep the affected disk unmounted.

Just use xterm. Seriously. Yeah, it's big and bloated but all these hacks are kinda necessary to make everything work like it's intended to and it's also fast.

>>1070514

Taking into account you have a bootable USB, you should first connect to a wifi hotspot. You can do this through the command line using wpa_supplicant.

First, you need to find out what your wifi interface's name is. In the command line type:

ip addr

Your wifi interface should start with wlp*.

Now you can connect with wpa_supplicant. Type:

wpa_supplicant -B -i interface -c <(wpa_passphrase YOUR_SSID YOUR_PASS)

Using the -i flag you specify the interface, with -c the configuration file, and -B to run as daemon (in the background). You can first try without the -B flag to get prompts in case there are any errors. CTRL-c to end.

Next, acquire an ip address.

dhcpcd interface

Check if you're connected with:

ip addr

or

ping 8.8.8.8

If I messed something up, try checking out Arch Linux wiki on wpa_supplicant and dhcpcd.

Last LTS is 18.04. Why the hell did you install 16.04?

Also, you can try installing laptop mode tools.


 No.1070636

>>1070613

Yes, 16.04 is unoptimised for that hadware, the kernel can have it's leaks patched but not gain much in the way of more modern functions.

With current AMD stuff you'll want to hit something with a more modern kernel, 18.04 being the oldest I would stretch to. If you can't maintain a rolling release distro try settle into the 6month cycle of ubuntu. If you want long term stability pickup 18.04 now but don't get too attached then move onto 20.04 when it's out. LTS is a bit of a maymay to begin with but does have it's place. Again ryzen era AMD stuff is only just now actually coming to kosher status in 19.04.


 No.1070647

>>1070636

>>1070634

Hmm, I see. I chose to install 16.04 because it's the last LTS with MATE built against GTK2. I don't like the various changes they made when transitioning to GTK3. The interface looks much more clunky than before, they removed the resize grips from windows and the themes I use look ugly. Also, there was a Windows app that I had no problems running on Wine in 16.04 but which crashed in 18.04 on my previous PC. It doesn't work with 16.04 on this laptop though, so it doesn't matter any more. I guess I'll install Ubuntu MATE 19.04.

 No.1070736

>>1070727

Want to set the xresource xterm.vt100.blink to true, underline is -ul as parameter, the proper resource escapes me right now. You wanna read the xterm manpages, that thing can do a lot of things but you need to figure out how to configure it. Unicode support is alright if you don't want crazy stuff like colored emojis. Most confusion about xterms unicode capabilities arise because xterm doesn't do font fallback like most applications. If your selected font doesn't have it, it won't get displayed. xterm can do font change on the fly without restarting the current terminal and you can set up a hotkey for that. xterms support is also comprehensive otherwise, even sixels (graphics in the terminal) are supported. xterm is a heap of hacks and software implenetation of dumb terminal edgecases but everything is made with xterm in mind so it's the only one that doesn't drive you nuts.

This fucking shit right here.

After deciding if it was really worth it, I decided to look up if it had systemd it does and it turns out that it more or less gives you little choice but to download it due to dependencies.

So after wasting multiple hours trying to set this shit up which shouldn't take more than an hour at most I'm fucking salty and anyone who says "install gentoo :^)" is a niggerfaggot.

For the last few months I've been having consistent lag spikes on my desktop. pics related. 30 minutes of pinging local router with Wireless Card and 10 minutes with Phone USB Tethering. There are no spikes if testing from a laptop. There are no spikes if I connect my desktop by USB tethering my phone. So it must be the Wireless Card. I updated all the drivers and the issue still persisted. I finally found a solution with WLAN Optimzer (http://www.martin-majowski.de/index.html) and using it to turn on "Streaming Mode".

>Streaming Mode

According to MSDN the WLAN driver won't "implicitly perform any self-initiated actions that may decrease packet throughput over the media stream. For example, the driver must not initiate any network scans or radio power management on its own" while streaming mode is active. (http://www.martin-majowski.de/faq.html)

I don't want to rely on some random proprietary program to have a normal experience in games but the only mention of the "Streaming Mode" I found was: (https://stackoverflow.com/questions/41564384/how-to-set-wlan-card-to-streaming-mode) Here however the guy wants to enable Streaming Mode in his C# program. Writing C# code interacting with the Wireless Card is starting to really get out of my depth. Can anyone help me set this "Streaming Mode" on the card so that I don't have to use a program constantly?

Can't use an ethernet cable because I don't have physical access to the router. Otherwise the Wireless Card wouldn't have existed in the first place.

I'm trying to uncuck firefox as much as possible and I'd like to hear if I've done enough or if there are other things I should do.

I followed this guide which I've seen posted here in the past:

https://spyware.neocities.org/guides/firefox.html#1

I also added all the config changes suggested in the following (they seemed reasonable) which the former linked to as well:

https://restoreprivacy.com/firefox-privacy/

This article suggests that it's not of great benefit to disable the safe browsing feature and could pose a security risk, whilst the configurations in the guide do disable it. Thoughts? Should I keep it disabled?

I looked at another site that was recommended by the first guide, but does its user.js provide anything of value missing from the one on spyware.neocities?

https://github.com/ghacksuserjs/ghacks-user.js/blob/master/user.js

It warns users of the following:

>We disable binary checks not in Safe Browsing local lists (0402)

<If you do not understand the consequences of this, please change this setting

I don't and I'm unsure how to check if the .js config I got from the guide does this or not.

Lastly, addons.

I've used uBlock and noScript for a long time, I also added https everywhere and Decentraleyes.

I used to have an anti fingerprinting addon (sent false information I believe?) but didn't see it recommended, is it a good thing to have despite turning off all fingerprinting features?

A while back some anon posted suggestions for configuring uBlock, I recall setting it to advanced user, disabling third party scripts everywhere and blocking java and remote fonts. Then to also block CSP reports and prevent WebRTC from leaking IP (but I know this is something I changed in config).

Is this something I should do or is it superfluous?

I forgot but it also suggested using a third party password manager, one of them the site recommended is KeePass. Is this a good choice?


 No.1071220

>>1071187

>Should I keep it disabled?

Yes. uBlockOrigin has malware domain filters which will keep you safe.

>used uBlock and noScript

uBlock Origin has a js blocker built in and provides a better interface. Just go into uBO settings and enable advanced mode or whatever it's called. Once you do, uBO will give you a drop down menu of what you can disable per site. The left column is global settings while the right is current domain settings.

noScript is just useless bloat.

>is it a good thing to have despite turning off all fingerprinting features?

It depends. If you want to send false information you should use addons like that, if you want to blend in (like tor users do) then you shouldn't. Check your fingerprint on browserleaks and panopticlick and compare it to Tor browser.

>Is this something I should do

Yes. Javascript is the most common way of delivering malware to browsers so you should disable it globally and the 3rd party scripts. Then enable js only on trusted sites.

I run a restaurant near an apartment and it's basically unavoinable for me to have my internet drained by the apartment's retards, even if I change my pass, they'll all be back on in 3 days.

My question is, let's say I have 35 retards cogling my wifi nonstop, if I were to set up a malicious dns or whatever that implements a browser miner on every page that they acess at around 50% cpu capacity, how much could I make from it a month?

I don't believe they'll have many people with gaming pcs.

"botnet". That is not the term you're looking for when you're using a foreign server.

But yeah, they don't give a shit about privacy and will volunteer to give out your personal details once they realize they can do it.

E-mails, by being fundamentally linked to clearnet adresses, are flawed.

Buuuuut if you want to use protonmail for something like a professional e-mail where you apply for jobs or send e-mails to your work peers/classmates etc, their service is pretty fine.

Their web UI is decent, too.

If you actually want something really anonymity and security with e-mail your best bet is using PGP encryption(which requires the person you're e-mailing not to be a retard) inside an e-mail provider that has an onion relay and doesn't require JS to create an account or login.

One that fits all those bills is mail2tor.com.

I've been using it for a while now and their service seems pretty reliable.

I trusted it with over 100 dollars for a few months now(meaning that if they were malicious they could easily steal it all from me), and they still didn't.

But still, the only way to be safe is not trusting anyone. If you want to be safe, I urge you to use PGP when exchanging e-mails with other people.

The handbook specifically targets OpenRC as init, only making mention of systemd as an option

>Optional: Using systemd as the init system

>The remainder of the Gentoo Handbook focuses on OpenRC (the traditional Gentoo init system) as the default init system. If systemd is desired or if the reader will be installing GNOME 3.8 and later (which requires systemd), please consult the systemd article. It contains instructions equivalent to the instructions in the following sections of this Handbook. Specifically, it will walk the reader through various init system commands (systemctl) and systemd-specific services (such as timedatectl, hostnamectl, etc.) needed to establish a working systemd environment.

Systemd is in no way required by gentoo, nor does it magically appear in @world unless you put it there.

>>1071039

I've had to in the past but Gentoo's gotten pretty good about having dbus use flags everywhere. Putting -dbus in USE in /etc/portage/make.conf has worked out well in recent years.

If you're installing Gnome, prepare for it to pull in everything that sucks more dicks than OP about linux as hard dependencies.

I'd strongly advise switching away from OpenRC too, it's a complete mess and maintained by someone who doesn't give a shit about it and is strongly in favor of systemd. As long as I have used gentoo and as much as I like it, some people involved with maintaining it are tremendous faggots and I'm pretty sure the day where it goes full retard in some way is on the horizon.

I've been trying to into gentoo the past few days, I almost have it down to where I can expect a smooth install (i've gotten far but it still fucks up in one way or another). On my previous attempt it booted grub and then into shell with root privledges. I chose kde desktop on the profile set but it wouldn't boot into it for some reason, it also stopped recognizing my wifi card after the first reboot.

Not only that but towards the end where I'm supposed to do

#exit

#cd

#unmount X

#unmount Y

#reboot

it simply wont unmount X or Y saying something like "X is busy" "Y does not exist" "Y does exist" and shit like that and it's keeping me from rebooting. I'm really close to having it, but even at the last moment it fucks up. I think it may be something with the kernel configuration, I did it manually so maybe I should try genkernel?

If you are actually asking to take the output of a application and send the audio to two seperate bluetooth audio devices then see bluez-alsa in linux or oss-vmix in freebsd as they are your only options without expensive hardware splitters. Unless you want to port oss-vmix to something other then freebsd.

My network has 2 routers. Router 1 is the main router everything is connected to. Router 2's WAN port connects to router 1 LAN like this. Both routers set their own DNS servers, but it looks like router 1's DNS is taking priority. How would I go about having devices on router 2's LAN use its DNS in place? Is DMZ what I'm looking for, or does that just affect port forwarding? I don't want to configure DNS per device if possible.

So my PC cut out on me in the middle of use, originally I thought it was overheating, so Iet it cool for 30 minutes, opened it up and took the fans out for cleaning themselves and behind them, once everything was put back in I tried to power it on, the fans kick on for a second and then nothing.

I have checked and reseated my RAM, video card, and even the CPU. After each effort I tried to power it on again and got the same results, some fan activity then it cuts out. My motherboard LED is on showing that it is receiving steady power, so I do not know what else obvious I am missing. Unfortunately I do not have a multimeter to test the actual output of my PSU so I couldn't rule that out.

I'm setting up a WEP hotspot for some old devices. The plan is to turn it on when I'm using them, then promptly turn it off when I'm done. I was considering disabling SSID broadcast as well to make it a littler harder for unauthorized devices to connect. Would this actually help, or not really?

Dunno what exactly you're talking about, but it displays a/v codecs, resolution, fps and channel count/sampling rate for audio. Though the thing about mpv is that it's highly configurable.

It shouldn't have been the case if you did everything according to the manual (however maybe that manual is fucked anyway, but shit like THAT you must never do, OK? Don't unmount FSes uncleanly).

Though if you did, I will tell you what happened, as I see it.

/mnt/gentoo was a mountpoint of your to-be-rootfs, meaning, everything for system boot and run is supposed to be there.

You didn't unmount it cleanly for whatever reason, turned off the system the hard way, FS caches couldn't be written to the actual FS on the HDD, leaving your system all kinds of fucked.

I may be mistaken though, given your report is almost useless.

So, to ensure that your system isn't broken, you might as well just start the whole process all over, from ground up.

Other than that, I'm curious what you can do with that system. Can you ls? Can you "echo *" at least? What does "ps" say? Are configuration files (you edited/created a lot) intact? Does emerge work? Et cetera, et cetera.

If you did set your password, do /etc/passwd and /etc/shadow files even exist (it looks like the system didn't ask you for one)?

Though TBH it's gonna be a pain in the ass to help you with that, so better just restart and make sure you make no mistakes this time. Also you could try installing Funtoo instead, I think it's easier.

Decent commandline mail client/workflow?

Requirements:

>support for multiple SMTP servers and picking which one and the account to send mail with as the mail is being written

>support for multiple IMAP servers and at minimum listing mail by account

>PGP integration

That I know of, The only ones that don't fail at this are GUI and the only one of all of them that is not just plain unusable is claws-mail.

I tried mutt (unusable config file scripting autism that boils down to "make your own mail client") and alpine (no pgp support, no multiple account support unless you set up rules and then you can't pick the account to use and you just hope your rule picked the right one).


 No.1072650

>>1072647

Claws-mail is awesome. Like, it looks sloppy, but it works fine.

I think some old versions just might hit your outbox on the IMAP server with an unencrypted email when using PGP (the email saving feature wouldn't recognize it) or also hitting the draft folder with drafts non-stop (time interval saving), but I think they fixed it.

Mutt is nice if you take the autism to set it up. Though I actually find it unusable out of the box, mostly because of how you cannot set up inbox switch with the c button (it needs some wild overrides in behavior).

I think the next level would be to just say fuck it and roll with composing/encrypting/sending emails completely the UNIX-way. Like, you take the text editor, write the letter; then take some email composing script, feed the letter to it so it becomes a valid email that can be delivered; then you feed the letter to the sendmail (or whatever program) so it flies. Then you use some POP delivery program to fetch emails from the server and feed them to some filter script to read. It even sounds nice.

Not sure what to do with the encryption though, because, I think, PGP encryption is performed on the letter as a whole, like without the main headers, but still it should be the letter, which could be multipart. Attachments gonna be the pain too.

Posting this here from another thread. I've had a hard fucking time trying to get gentoo to work for the better part of a week.

I followed the install manual as closely as possible, trying to read every detail to ensure I get it right.

I used the minimal install cd instead of a USB. I follow it closely and when I get to kernel configuration I do it manually, I compile most of everything (hardware and network drivers) as kernel and not module.

After that I install most of the reccomended tools and such. I install GRUB2 and after that I move onto the final installation step, the unmounting and reboot. However when I get to the final step it won't allow me to umount /mnt/gentoo saying that it doesnt exist and then saying that it does, but it doesn't let me do anything otherwise. The same happens with the reboot command as it won't let me reboot without first unmounting the previous /mnt/gentoo, it won't let me do poweroff either.

After I press the power button and let it power down I boot it back up and remove the cd before it starts.

Then it boots into what I assume is GRUB/shell or one of those. The command line says "localhost~#" which makes me think it's in root. But when I type "ip addr" a different name is in place where my wifi card name was and I can't change anything with nano or execute any commands outside of the most basic.

And to top it off, the hd I was using as my OS drive has another problem, it only boots into grub, even when I run the minimal install cd and after formating the drive to remove all partitions on it, it still just boots to grub.

It makes me think that maybe you're in initramfs environment, which means most probably that your root filesystem was not found (either no SATA or no FS drivers to load).

>it only boots into grub

If it is actually the case and you're not shitting me, it may mean a lot of different things. Most probably grub misconfiguration though. Tell us you filesystem layout (like, you might have made separate /boot and /) and show the file /boot/grub/grub.cfg

3) if fdisk actually returns something like "/dev/sdXY" where X is like a letter "a", "b", etc and y is a number, then proceed to 4)

4) run "mount -o ro /dev/sdXY /mnt && ls /mnt && umount /mnt" for every different sdXY you got from 2) and post the results

It is one of the few files you must edit. Like, I actually tested once and my setup worked fine without it (like, I think / will get mounted anyway and if ain't got nothing else, well...), but I would bet it's just inviting trouble.

And don't be lazy you stupid nigger, manual has all the info you need to put something together.

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:AMD64/Full/Installation#About_fstab

>in the configuring network section it saying to enter "config_eth0="dhcp"

I don't usually use the initscript method of configuring the network, but it should work.

>i think the eth0 is just a place holder for wlp3s0, is this the case?

Fuck if I know, probably not. There are instructions for you to change some names.

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Handbook:AMD64/Full/Installation#Automatically_start_networking_at_boot

But in that case it's the in name of the variable, so it probably doesn't matter.

And anyway, if fuck this up, you just won't get network, which is an easy fix really. Like, if you are on ethernet with a DHCP server set up (on the router or whatever), you can just run dhcpcd on your interface and be golden. Other than that, you can use "ip" utility to set up your ip address/subnet and default route.

And quick feedback on your shit. Dude, you assume too much without knowing shit and without learning anything. It's horrible, like, do you even read the manual? If you're stressed out or whatever, don't do this shit, do other stuff with your life.

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT COMMAN EVEN GIVES YOU THIS SHIT

Anyway, if you run emerge, it may be fairly slow. Ctrl-C is not supposed to "report issues" you absolute stupid fuck.

Oh BTW, you are not chrooted at this point you fuck. If you want to redo my commands you have to be chrooted.

Sorry I didn't notice this.

Is there a CSS-only way to read out website text? The closest I found was attr(), but that only works for attributes. Trying to make a userstyle for 8chan that colors IDs

Any idea how to save non-cached media streams?

I'm trying to download a part of a Japanese wrestling video but everything I've tried fails. Link is https://njpwworldjap.blogspot.com/52a98cb8-80c5-4d61-84cf-d15d432c4642 . Youtube-dl didn't work, the video is somehow not cached and the source just links back to itself so I'm all out of ideas.

Does this link work?

You can feed it to the youtube-dl, it can save m3u8 streams.

I took the link from the source page of your video.

For one, you have to at least provide the command line you used to convert the video you stupid fuck.

For the other, you could provide us a link to a video in question. If you don't want to for privacy reasons, just find another one with a same problem and link it here.

You also could use youtube-dl to download it in another format. Heck, youtube even provides webm videos under format code 43 or something else look it up with -F option.

Hey mates

For reasons I can't go really much into I need some way of encrypting a bunch of old data, namely on some external drives. What are some good tools to do it?

That works, thanks.

I didn't even think of looking in the source page.
