  • Linus Torvalds added hidden tabs to Kconfig to challenge parsers that can't handle them.
  • Tabs were intentionally added to the common Kconfig file for page sizes to expose faulty parsers.
  • Torvalds believes parsers unable to handle tabs shouldn't be parsing kernel Kconfig files, aiming to force fixes.

The only game I have ever played is FIFA on a PS4. Now I have a gaming laptop but have no idea how I should go about playing games on Linux. Appreciate your help in advance!

How do you say SUSE? (m.youtube.com)
submitted 15 hours ago* (last edited 12 hours ago) by [email protected] to c/[email protected]

I always thought those whoe said susa instead of soos are wrong.

Suse stands for "Software und System-Entwicklung" https://linuxiac.com/opensuse/

Edit: Yes, she can still be wrong but then it's supported by the rest of susa's staff https://youtu.be/RsME20zXbQI&t=13

It's a known bug from upstream mutter. A fix is being worked on and there's a PPA with the updated packages by the Ubuntu developer working on the fix. It resolved the problem on my end.

Either pxe netboot or usb or installable. Immuttable or not. Ramfs. With a host selector or fully auto login ?

Ultra light 16 to 128mb storage 64-128mb ram. Or "full sized"

And lastly, something like that, but that would run on a proxmox host.

The OnePlus Watch 2 has 2 chips, and basically runs a lightweight OS while keeping the hungry one in very very low power, and only powering it up when necessary.

I was thinking that maybe such idea could be applied on a Linux phone that could run all your banking apps without Waydroid's "you-must-be-a-hacker" issues, literally by having a half-asleep Android running on another chip, which you can wake up whenever to do your "non-hacker" things, while at the same time you can run the rest of your system (calls, messaging, calculator, calendar, browser...) on your lightweight, private and personalized Linux mobile OS.

I think I would pay big bucks for something like this, and it could serve as a transition device for ditching Android in the future when Tux finally governs over the world.

What do you guys think?

Hi, I would know what are the differences between the vm-designed Kali Linux ISO and the "normal" one. Yes the vm-designed one is as "vm ready file", already configure and all the stuff... but what are the real differences, for example it says on the website that the vm one is isolated, but is this already not the case of a vm? And what is snapshots and vagrant image? thank you

Hi all, I don't know if this is the right place to post this...let me know :)

I'm trying to create a NFS share, this is my /etc/exports:

/mnt/pool/var_VM_docker/ 172.31.0.0/24(rw,sync,no_subtree_check)

When I try to connect with:

sudo mount -t nfs -o nfsvers=3 -vvvv 172.31.0.1:/mnt/pool/var_VM_docker /mnt/test

I get:

mount.nfs: timeout set for Mon Apr 15 19:07:11 2024
mount.nfs: trying text-based options 'nfsvers=3,addr=172.31.0.1'
mount.nfs: prog 100003, trying vers=3, prot=6
mount.nfs: trying 172.31.0.1 prog 100003 vers 3 prot TCP port 2049
mount.nfs: prog 100005, trying vers=3, prot=17
mount.nfs: trying 172.31.0.1 prog 100005 vers 3 prot UDP port 41067
mount.nfs: mount(2): Permission denied
mount.nfs: access denied by server while mounting 172.31.0.1:/mnt/pool/var_VM_docker

I don't have iptables enabled, nor SELinux. I've tried exporting it on 127.0.0.1 and connecting it to 127.0.0.1, but the problem persist. What am I doing wrong?

I've been looking more seriously at making a permanent switch to Linux, as I don't plan to ever upgrade to Windows 11. I'm currently running a dual-boot with Ubuntu Studio, and I've been trying to piece together everything I need to move my regular usage over.

I think I've got enough of a grasp of Jack at this point to replace Voicemeeter, which was one of my big hurdles. The next, though, is Discord's incomplete functionality.

For those who don't know, audio doesn't stream with screen sharing over discord on Linux. I do a lot of streaming with friends, so we kind of need this functionality.

I know it's possible to run a discord client on Linux that fixes this problem, but given that it's technically against the ToS, I don't really want to risk my account. I have a bunch of stuff set up for game servers, including all sorts of webhooks and ticket tool configurations and the like, so it isn't really worth risking.

I know there are some VLC plugins I can use to stream video files, but that doesn't help if I'm trying to stream a game or my DAW.

Has anyone found solutions that work for them? The easier for the person I'm streaming to, the better.

This is League Of Legends running with wine on fedora. I thought Vanguard will only run on windows?

I found a (lengthy) guide to doing this but it is for gksu which is gone. I have to imagine there's an easy way. I am running Ubuntu. There is no specific use case, it is just a feature I miss from windows.

EDIT: I always expect a degree of hostility and talking-down from the desktop Linux community, but the number of people in this thread telling me I am using my own computer that I bought with my own money in a way they don't prefer while ignoring my question is just absurd and frankly should be deeply embarrassing for all of us. I have strongly defended the desktop Linux community for decades, but this experience has left a sour taste in my mouth.

Thank you to the few of you who tried to assist without judgement or assumptions.

I tried Waydroid on Arch and its amazing. It runs Android apps flawlessly. And with a touchscreen device, I feel like I have an Android tablet running inside my Linux machine.

But I still don't know what to use it for...

What apps do you use with Waydroid? What use cases do you have for it?

I occasionally need to know the names of programs. I asked here about "Run as Administrator" being added to the context menu (like in Windows), and the response was basically "can't be easily done". an example is if I wish to edit a config file it cannot be done without accessing the terminal. Knowing the name "gedit" is the real name of "text editor" is useful information in this use-case.

I am not afraid of the terminal, but I would never prefer it over a GUI. is there a way to find a program name/install location from right-clicking-details (or something)? So then I could open a terminal and "sudo programname"?

(As an aside, I prefer Linux overall, but every distro I've tried has a strong sense that if you're using the GUI you don't need or deserve admin controls. Program names in the menus are almost always different from their names in the terminal, and many what I would consider normal system settings, like the ability to act as an administrator, find where a program is installed are terminal only.)

This is Ubuntu with all the default stuff

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word "Linux" in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
