>>1080>how boomer the UK police are>Discord
I don't think so.
There is a systematic campaign of State terrorism against their own people. Their method is harass and kidnap any British native dissenter of the establishment's narrative, while looking the other way and accommodate the invaders. That's treason.
Anyways, their end is every year closer as they and their masters are fueling a revolution, it won't be pretty.
Installing Void OS
Only for testing, not production.
Yeah, I just installed it
not normal terminal commands
And it's a rolling distro, meaning that very likely a next update will render it unbootable.
Don't take chances.
Yeah, I already got antiX installing
I have MXLinux installed on multiple machines, so I thought I would try the new release of antiX since I was unable to install it previously
I learned the hard way. I only install LTS distros.
any elementaryOS users here?

Install Linux Safely to an External Drive.
This video will show you how to use VirtualBox to install Linux to an external drive without risking any damage to your current operating system. We are using Linux Mint 19.3 here and our install features full disk encryption.https://www.bitchute.com/video/aHAyeZ01XMKv/
Does RPG Maker XP and Game Maker Studio work on Linux?
Or run a virtual machine with Virtualbox.
Kinda an advertisement, but the intention is to display an alternative to Android and iOS.
Lifelong winfag/macfag here. Months ago I saw that the Linux "community" pledged support for BLM and that left a sour taste in my mouth. Is there any risk that Ubuntu and other OS systems will be compromised "to own the Nazis"? There are several non-Linux Unix distributions but they are even more niche and as a complete layman I wouldn't know what to do if anything went wrong/something was incompatible. Should I go the experimental route or can I be confident that Linux won't leak my internet activity/hard drive contents?
>>1197>Lifelong winfag/macfag here>Should I go the experimental route
Yup, you must do experiments and break your system, it's the best way to learn.
I'd stick with Linux and there are a number of good Ubuntu-based systems to worth with. My question is whether it's better to get Elementary or Zorin as they explicitly claim to respect users' privacy. Is this worth it or would standard Ubuntu be better?
What's better is just an opinion. There are perhaps 200 different Linux distros to choose from.
Pick one, make a bootable live USB flash pen, and you are ready to try without to install it on your hard drive.
Search "Linux live CD" to find out more about how it works.
Literally who? The Linux kernel and each component of the operating system are developed independently (ie. the development of the whole OS, Linux kernel and all programs is not centralized) I bet it was just bunch of soydevs that you shouldn't worry about.>Is there any risk that Ubuntu and other OS systems will be compromised "to own the Nazis"?
it's far more likely that Windows, MacOS, Android, etc proprietary systems start flagging users as nazis/bad goys
if a open-source software gets such a feature (very unlikely), it would likely get detected by the community before it even made it into any of the distros and it would create very large backlash. The users and developers of FOSS (Free and Open-Source Software)
are generally very serious about privacy and the right of the user.> can I be confident that Linux won't leak my internet activity/hard drive contents?
yes, unless you install some obscure antifa-sponsored distro that no one cares about>>1199>Elementary>Zorin
The only distros I recommend are
for beginners: Lubuntu and Xubuntu
for power users: Artix/Arch, Gentoo and Devuan/Debian (NixOS and GuixSD are also interesting)
for servers: Debian
for containers: Alpine>>1200
It's highly recommended that you test the distro via LiveCD (which can also be a USB flash drive)
before you install it

Thats the good thing about FOSS, they cant. Mastadon is made by a bunch of commies, but all the could do when gab used it was whine and block it in individually hosted instances. You'll also find that the commies are overly vocal among linux users, but they arent the majority. Linus (kernel creator) himself is pretty anti-commie, even if he was forced to cuck from corporate pressure>"You have to understand it’s not actually possible to do anything platform-wide because it’s decentralized,” he tells The Verge. “I don’t have the control.”>It’s a hard problem, playing off the deepest limitations of decentralized projects like Mastodon. Mastodon arose from the idealistic open-source software movement, designed to let anybody run their own social media site. But it was never intended to support something like Gab.https://www.theverge.com/2019/7/12/20691957/mastodon-decentralized-social-network-gab-migration-fediverse-app-blocking>Should I go the experimental route or can I be confident that Linux won't leak my internet activity/hard drive contents?
The OS wont leak anything, but your browser is still gonna leak your activity to anything you use, and if you use creepy software like chrome, discord, spotify, or steam, its gonna leak some stuff. Other free OSs like freeBSD mostly just amount to a different kernel and core user-space shit. You'll still be running most of the same main software, but with worse software and hardware support>>1201>>1200>>1199
My recommendation for distros is always just:
low-effort, pre-setup: manjaro
medium-effort, customisable: arch
high-effort, very customisable: gentoo
Manjaro has good support for anything the average user would want, big up to date software repo, easy to play games on, big community, and lots of flavours. Arch takes some manual effort to setup, but its mostly following the wiki, and then you can make your own experience without relying on any specific distro or flavour. I've seen the most brain-dead indians set it up without trouble. Gentoo is like arch but even more control over everything, aswell as everything running smoother, while being a little bit harder and having a bit worse documentation and a smaller repo size
Hi ponyfags. I have a new Ubuntu rig and I wanted to make sure my CPU won't melt under load. Sensors readout doesn't come stock though and I've installed lm-sensors, psensors and xsensors. I've followed instructions from these articles:
Odd thing is that the CPU doesn't show up in the terminal when I run sensors. I ran the graphical front-ends and the result is >pic related. It's completely different from the article pictures as I'm not sure CPU even shows up, while the GPU (Sapphire Pulse Radeon 5600 XT with three fans) gives these three temperatures (it reached nearly 60 without the fans turning on, clearly I have to adjust it).
I was going to install Freon and Sensors extensions, but reading the reviews apparently they are no longer compatible). Also I don't think they would work because readings are probably taken from the terminal rather than from the BIOS. How can I get a proper CPU temp readout?
Some screencaps of the terminal are probably better. I ran a sensors scan and said yes to everything yet still the CPU doesn't show up.
>>1213>I have a new Ubuntu rig>Sensors readout doesn't come stock though and I've installed lm-sensors, psensors and xsensors.
Hardly that can be fixed here.
You have to go to Ubutu forums as they are the ones supporting packages.
Remember, Ubuntu is a distro introducing many changes every release, therefore things break and regressions happen, on the other hand, bleeding edge software gives you the benefit of support for the newest hardware most of the time.
Try running modprobe k10temp
Also, which kernel (uname -r)?>>1214>3rd pic
don't follow that advice as that answer is old.
If that doesn't help, you should also try upgrading to the newest release: Go to update settings in the settings application and set it to upgrade to all releases (instead of upgrading only to LTS releases) and use the GUI to upgrade. If you can't find the GUI option, you could also use the terminal https://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/groovy/man8/do-release-upgrade.8.html
(ProTip: run tmux before running do-release-upgrade)you could also ask this on tech focused chan, such as lain
What kind of cpu do you have?
