    Chunchunmaru_ got a reaction from flowalex in Elelmentary OS dosent boot into KDE   
    Elementary OS has a custom set of packages and differs from the usual "ubuntu" I don't think you can get to work another DE that easily like on an official ubuntu flavor

    Chunchunmaru_ got a reaction from Aaliyah Reynolds in Is a VPN really useful when Working from home?   
    I think there is a misconception here, you are not using the classic "privacy-friendly VPN" that someone sells

    When working from home you are supposed to access the company resources through their own VPN server without opening any useless resource to the internet

    Notepad is designed to be as lightweight as possible and is literally just for taking notes and basic word input.
    If you want a more feature rich "notepad", there's Notepad++.

    A few years ago they did actually update Notepad. It's usually years upon years between updates but they do happen.
    Last time they added high DPI display support (or at least made it better), the ability to hold ctrl and scroll to zoom in/out, and they also added support for the Unix standard line ending (LF) and Mac line ending (CR).
     
     
    Let's just hope Microsoft doesn't mess with Notepad any further. I absolutely love Notepad++ and its plugins and stuff, and I rarely use Notepad myself. But there is a great appeal to simple programs that "just werk", and Notepad is one of them. It's such a basic tool. If Notepad is a hammer, Notepad++ is a nailgun, and I certainly wouldn't want to someone to try and "improve" hammers.
     
     
     
    And by "mess with the update system" you mean doing things like, click "check for updates".
    Still super pissed at Microsoft for treating people who click "check for updates" as beta testers.

    Chunchunmaru_ reacted to LAwLz in Wii source code leaked on 4chan after hack on BroadOn servers   
    Don't worry. The current copyright law ensures that anyone trying to use this for any purpose of improving the world will be shut down and have their lives financially ruined. Nintendo has around 140 years left of exclusivity to this code. So maybe in the year ~2162 we will get a perfect Wii emulator.
     
    The entire copyright and patent system surrounding software is so fucked... Because of this leak, emulators like Dolphin are at risk.
    Nintendo could now attack Dolphin because as soon as some code is published to Dolphin, Nintendo can claim that it was developed using their code which was stolen. If a developer proves that the code wasn't stolen by making comparisons, the developers admits to having downloaded and looked at stolen information from Nintendo. And even if the code isn't the same, Nintendo could argue that they just took the stolen code and modified it slightly, which I believe is still illegal. They would have no evidence to support the claims, but if it's Nintendo and their nearly endless funds vs some indie developer then they can just keep the legal battle going until the developer runs out of money and have to settle (and the settlement would probably be to seize development).

    Homebrewer's aren't going to touch this. Even with a 10-foot pole. The legality that comes with this is high.

    Chunchunmaru_ got a reaction from Metallus97 in [TUTORIAL] AMD GPU Linux Folding at Home | Arch, Manjaro | Sometimes more perf than Windows!!   
    A bit of an advice of what you are doing here for the 3.2 part 
     
    You are enabling AMDGPU support for legacy GPU's who primarly use the radeon driver, the amdgpu driver is builtin at least from the last 3 years on the major distros and the only AMD GPU's that will use it are Southern Islands (SI) GPU's and Sea Islands (CIK) GPU's, and what you wrote was enabling support ONLY for CIK gpu's, you actually have to put this
    Southern Islands (SI): radeon.si_support=0 amdgpu.si_support=1 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radeon_HD_7000_series)
    Sea Islands (CIK): radeon.cik_support=0 amdgpu.cik_support=1 (as you correctly wrote, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radeon_Rx_200_series)
     
    This is not needed for new gen AMD GPU's

    Yeah, theoretically I have to sign a paper where I tell where I’m going and where I’m from and the reason I’m doing that. 
    I’m 100km far from the closest red zone and in my city I think there are 10 cases
     
    Pretty sure not everyone did this and I have yet to see a single police officer checking all the cars travelling on the road
     
    Meanwhile I just left those papers in my car

    It just wont, they are not even interested, probably they are unaware the fact va-api actually works and it's not the garbage it was in 2010
    But I also think they prefer developing the OpenGL video decoding backend called glxsomething 
     
    Some chromium beta builds actually have hardware decoding with va-api, I don't know if there are still PPA's around there with it
    It actually is, but not for GPU's or anything media related that is supposed to work with Windows software (few exceptions with the playstation 4 controller driver for example)
     
    Are you referring to the AMD Southern Island amdgpu driver?
    That's because it's still an experimental support, using the terminal is mandatory as it's basically an hack, but not for installing classic proprietary nvidia drivers, you have the GUI for that

    Well I imagined it...
    Sometimes you are supposed to change the RDP port for various reasons (security, multi servers, etc)...
    But usually (at least me) you do that via a firewall rule and never locally, but it happened in the past it was necessary because of some odd windows bug where the 3389 port never worked
