Advanced users of GNU/Linux (and I mean advanced), remember to try Source Mage GNU/Linux. True source-based distribution, and (in contrast with Gentoo and Arch) is:
Free from obfuscated and pre-configured code.
Fully committed to GPL, uses only free software (as in freedom) in their main package.
With even the documentation licensed as FDL.
Without 3rd party patches, sensible defaults or masked packages.
Doesn't need obfuscated python libraries, only bash.
No systemd (they've implemented their own init scripts system
Uses clean dependencies as they came from upstream developers, which by the same provides instant updates.
Can heal broken installs.
Can also use flags.

Do you like Arch Linux's AUR? Do you like Gentoo's portage (or ports-like) package manager? With SMGL's "sorcery" you get all that. Making new spells (package build files) not found in the grimoire (repository of spells) is easy

Bash hackers welcome! Come and join

Installing SMGL is easy, here's the simplified process:
>boot a live Ubuntu (or whatever) USB drive
>go to SMGL website and download compressed archive of the base system
>partition and mount partition(s)
>extract the archive onto the new partition(s)
>chroot, set root passwd, hostname, configure network and locale, write fstab, install grub/lilo
>compile a kernel (preferably the newest stable one from
>update sorcery, grimoires and the build toolchain
>rebuild the system (hold spells you've already built, so you don't build them twice)
The install guide will hold your hand through the whole process
Do the chroot method, since the regular live ISO method guide is out of date currently.

You do know GRSec stable is "leaked" from time to time. Once a year it appears.
No? See, another dumb guy "playing" at this "infosec" "linux" thing. So yea: in current year people do have Grsec.

GRSec is a requirement for a secure linux system. Period.


Guys, linux is not secure, never has been. With or without patches from anyone. Stop thinking in magical black boxes.





read some CVE's. New bugs comming out all the time in all sorts of software.


You really want me to link you to don't you?

Xonotic vs ChaosEsque:Anthology, Which to chose. A debate on OpenSource FPS's

>Xonotic over ChaosEsqueAnthology:

Ayyo. Before you make a big mistake in choosing a project or sum soykaf you gotta be feeling the ways of the both the people. You feel me?

M'fcking Xonotic and dis bullsoykaf is diffrens.

Xonotic devs deeply respect women and their rights and privileges.

Dis Bullsoykaf devs hate women's rights and have been harranging FLOSS femininists fo like a decade. (Citation: )

Xonotic Developers contribute to society by working real jobs.

Dis Bullsoykaf is a pack of fucking NEETs who say dey ain't workin fo no enemy.

Xonotic Programmers are attracted to real Women.

Dis BULLsoykaf glitterboys want to take little girls as brides.

Xonotic Men respect and uphold modern ethical understandings and beliefs.

DIS BULLsoykaf NEET FUCKS worship the war god of the jews and cite "deuteronomy" as reason why raping young female children into marraige is "awwwite" (Example: "Deuteronomy 22, 28-29,hebrew, see na'ar, tahpas bla bla bla bla" – These words are all spam-filtered on for a reason)

Xonotic Paragons have a correct work:life:hobby balance and deeply love real women.

Dis_Bullsoykaf neet glitterboys do not work, do not life, they just program the videogame and make maps for it. They hate women and like little girls (and we all know that little girls are basically boys).

Choose wisely for you will be judged by the company you keep.

If you want to get fired from your job: fine: shack up with mikeeeusa and the glitterboy neets of Dis Bullsoykaf and their mountain of soykaf. You know: if you like pedophiles and guns so much. Also the neet assholes added disgusting things like working torture chambers into the game. Do you honestly want to be associated with that?

Hello there, Linux Lains! Which Linux distro are you currently using, and why? What is your preferred desktop environment, and for what reasons? If you have a history of distrohopping, which distros have caused you to settle down for the longest amount of time? I'm curious to see what the majority of Linux-using Lainons are running.

I run Manjaro KDE. It has all the efficient minimalism of Arch but with the "it just works" of Ubuntu and I enjoy how fast pacman is. KDE because I like the way it looks and xfce was a bit too bland out-of-the-box for my tastes

NOTE: I'm asking which distro YOU use. Not which is "the best." That's entirely subjective. But, just so you know, it's Manjaro.

Well, I would say no, but it's depend if you use free driver or not. Since they don't give it in the installer the option to go with non free driver which mean you have to download Wifi driver, graphics card drivers etc on another usb to install during the installation. It's really is a pain in the ass. Even Arch is so much more simple then Debian on so much stuff.



I hear you, and i agree. I just see Debian as the Firefox ESR of linux Distro. I love it for that.



If i can recommend you a Distro that i used for my work and personal computer. Anarchy linux. It's a text base installer for Arch.

I recently downloaded the Vichan script off of Github followed all the directions. The Captchas show up work appropriately except they don't actually do their job of checking if they are accurate. No error message comes up when they are wrong. It just lets people post without any issue.

Anybody experience this issue before?

>spread malware
just liveboot linux on your laptop before plugging it in


lookup piratebox


I used to live in a densely populated area. A real big soykafty. Over the span of 5 years, I found a total of 3 random USB drives while out walking around and just taking care of my day to day business. The first was really scuffed up and the housing was cracked. It contained heavy metal and punk rock mp3s. Boring top of the pops stuff, nothing obscure or interesting. The second was blank and in good condition. I still use it to this day. The third, found near a library, was full of a student's class work and had a directory with some personal pictures. Just mundane stuff, nothing spicy. I was able to figure out the name and email of the owner by browsing through the files and decided to contact them. They were extremely relieved to hear that it had been found. I met up with that anon the next day and they explained that just about everything on there was backed up except for a paper they were currently working on. This was back in the day, just as cloud based services like google docs were rolling out. The poor anon was freaking out thinking they were going to have to rewrite a paper they had nearly completed. I really felt for them, having experienced a hard drive failure myself and knowing what a demoralizing grind it can be to have to rewrite a long half remembered document that you've already completed.

One summer, when I was still in the big soykafty, I decided to leave a few thumb drives with some OC in random places, just for the sake of doing it. I added some funny exif/steg info and was curious if I'd ever hear anything back. I noticed one of the pictures on another image board some time later but that might just have been a repost of something I had already posted myself. Some time had past. I always figured the drives I left around were either damaged or, if they were reused, wiped without investigation due to security concerns.

Like the others mentioned in this thread, be careful how you examine found drives. I refurbish old gear and have an expendable air gapped rig that I live boot for just this purpose.


ffs just buy a vps with bitcoin and host a public ftp server

As it stands I've fully switched away from anything Microsoft related and I am not running full on Linux. I've already had Linux for over 4 years now, so I know a bit about all of the things around Linux, but I thought that not everyone is like me so why not make a thread about beginner tips n' tricks for Linux!
I'll start of course:
Browse Wiki's (installgentoo, Arch and uhhhmm..)
Learn to use the terminal and its commands! (Like man!)
Don't distro hop and start out with a light-weight distro like Mint/Xubuntu.
Try to use the mouse as little as possible.

Been on Linux since 1998.

Not bashing this. The advice is solid, but i honestly feel best middle-ground is to use Slackware first. Starting on a Desktop-centric distro will create psy resistance to going primitive. Mint/Xubuntu are seriously soild, but nature shows the baby has to be thrown out of the nest.

Those pretty, convenient packages don't come out of thin air. Good idea to learn how to compile, then flat pack them using the distros tools.

+ Slack isn't rolling. I don't see why anyone should use a roller unless they're developers. Even then, if you're new to *nix, i'd recommend CentOS over any Arch or Ubuntu base. New users will get the soykafs when things break. If they haven't broken for you…trust me, they will. Give it time.

Condemning distro hopping is seriously the best advice I've seen. Stick with your tool. When you hit a problem, fix it, rather than finding the easiest route. Remember, it's a fucking Kernel, not the tools. Don't be lazy. Sort it. :)


Love you too! <3
>But nature shows that baby has to be thrown out of the nest.
You're certainly right about that, I also learned the most by doing exactly that in my life, except for when I switched to Linux. I'm running Debian/Xubuntu due to updates and or stability since I'm that kind of man. Also yeah, I still don't know how to compile, what a tarball is (isn't it just like a zip file?) and all of the other stuff. However I do know how to use fstab and install ncmpcpp hehe.

Sorry, what's a roller? Isn't it like a rolling release or? Also yeah, things have broken for me plenty of times and I've spent hours trying to fix stuff on my machine through various guides but it kinda feels great.

Haha yeah, I don't really get people who distrohop, sure I've had the thoughts but why even bother? Not like you'll gain more experience by hopping, maybe you will get some HIGH STREET CRED by running Parabola on an old salvaged R52 thinkpad, but I don't really care about that. Thank you for responding :)


As opposed to the answers here, I think distro hopping is the best solution
Well I started using Ubuntu as my first GNU/Linux distribution, then I've hopped to it's flavors then to every other distribution imaginable to man
For me it worked quite well, I could've just kept using Ubuntu and tried different WMs and DEs in it but I just decided to try other distributions altogether.
When I did this I actually learned a lot, the DEs and WMs that were present in such distributions were already configured for your use, if it were for me to use Ubuntu, manually debloat it and then install my own proffered WM and configure that I would've already given up and I would still be on Windows, If I would've not given up I would be on a point of constant stagnation because if I wouldn't know the benefits of other distributions and I would be just like a Windows user, defending my distribution just because I have a sentimental value attached to it.
What I'm saying is that if you distro hop you can learn about new package managers and see the possibilities of customizing a desktop and what so on
This might not work for you but it did work for me.


Basic questions to ask yourself if you are planning to switch:
Is my hardware supported? (searching [model name of your device] + linux can be quite revealing)
Does using a LiveCD not end in complete disaster?
Will Linux meet my computing needs? (ie. vidya, messaging apps, etc.)
Are there places I can easily search/ask questions if things go wrong?

If you just want to dip your toes, distro hop, rice things up, and play with a terminal then try things out in a Virtual Machine.

I honestly have no idea what to recommend someone entirely new to GNU/Linux operating systems nowadays.


I think this might be a good point, if you want to "learn" linux anyway.

Hopping also forces you to realize what's standard and whats not, whats common and whats rare, and what are patterns of different distro families.

My personal story (n00b to professional sysadmin in 3 years (I didnt mean for it to work out this way)) started on arch, broke many things and fixed somewhat fewer, was willing to live with a less than working system more often than not. I distro hopped a ton for maybe months 6-18 before settling on close to my current arrangement, and spent the balance sorting out the finer points of packaging software, handling servers and networks, and many other bits of the arcana.

What is Void Linux?
>Void is a general purpose operating system, based on the monolithic Linux® kernel. Its package system allows you to quickly install, update and remove software; software is provided in binary packages or can be built directly from sources with the help of the XBPS source packages collection.
Why does it deserve it's own thread?
Well, I think it's a special GNU/Linux distribution and it deserves it's own thread in here, I think there are a few people in here that appreciate Void and it's simplicity
What advantages does Void have over XYZ
It uses runit instead of SystemD or OpenRC
It uses the XBPS package manager
It's a binary distribution but you can use xbps-src to compile packages yourself
It has a musl version
It has a public Git repository where all the package templates are managed and you can do a pull request yourself to contribute package templates. All packages are built using these templates by an automated system somewhere on a server
It's very comfy

I3 isn't hard to configure, all I did was copy paste a config file from github then look at some videos about it's configuration and then I could just add/remove my own stuff
Also, I don't see what's wrong with rolling release
More stuff broke when I was using Debian and Slackware than Arch and Void
I've been using it for a long time and nothing bad happened so far



Alright you know what, I've got a bit of time to kill I'm gonna install it and see what i think.



Got a trouble of problem during the install someone fixed it for me the lxqt was VERY minimal and i loved it the package manager is not really different then arch. Got a couple of trouble with nvidia. If someone didn't help me during the install process it would have take me ages but it good and the differences with a systemd system is inexistant to be fair.

config was ryzen 2700x gtx 1060 with 16gb ram



Good to know you enjoy it
Any updates?


I had a massive amount of trouble getting the FDE to work on my latest void install, I tried 20+ times in multiple different ways and still could not get it to work following any of the instructionsets that were available on their site. If anyone knows how to do this properly with an updated set of instructions I would appreciate it, because they did something after they regained the signing keys that fucked it all up somehow.

I often lose stuff, a device like Tile or some other tracking device could come really in handy.
However with these devices your not in control of your data and its probably used commercially.

Does Alice have a recommendation?



Tracking device are in nature pretty invasive. I look but it would be pretty fucking crazy to see tracking device that doesn't collect anything. Doesn't mean it does not exist, but unless you do something along the line of DIY I don't really believe you will find something.

They say it's "easy on humans, hard on bots", but either I'm a robot and don't know it or it's hard for humans too. Can Alice please help me find a way to avoid or bypass this? There are instances when I literally accurately solve (unless I'm a confused android?) double digit CAPTCHAs in a row before I say fuck it and give up. I can't take it anymore. I'm about to drive a drill into my head. Please help.

Ha! that reminds me, some anons back on 4chan figured if they typed n1ggr for the captchas it would show up, i wasnt sure if what they where trying would work, but one day I came across a obscure dititalized book and sure enough completely out of place there was a random n1ggr right in the middle of the page.


Oh, also as for solving captchas I dont know any easy out. You do have botting, some people pass them on for others to solve automatically.
(As a paid service of course)

Data poisoning is always fun though; get the first captcha right its usually one they already know the answer with complete certainty, than porposefuly get the next ones only half right ussualy always takes it.

>Data poisoning is always fun though

Doubt that works unless it's a concentrated effort by the hacker called 4chan. There are too many people solving them correctly. But of course by itself it's fun to put in the occassional misclick.


There are a number of websites that use it that I really enjoy - bandcamp and humble bundle, for example - that I'm not going to as much anymore because I block iframes and cross-origin scripts through umatrix. Captcha makes things so hard as to not be worth it. It's effectively malware - I don't want any of Google's code running on my computer!


The self-driving cars thing is mostly a myth though. I mean it obviously exists and the captcha solving will be used for that too, but among thousands of other types of AI training. So to immediately relate one to the other doesn't really apply.
If you want to be moral about it, you wouldn't be able to solve that type of captcha at all, since everything you feed it helps the AI get better at recog and consequently surveillance. But then again, you do that and they win because it will happen anyways and refusing to do captchas will just cripple you out of doing a bunch of stuff you want to do.
There used to be the maxim, "there is no ethical consumption under Capitalism", but now it's more like, "there is no ethical anything in whatever is this system we live in".
Of course, I'm not saying to stop trying to be ethical and do your best, just that, well, things are fucked as fuck, and always from way more angles than we can notice or even possibly think of.

I have a question for twitter users. Do protected accounts appear in the "who to follow" section?

I've noticed that only public accounts are suggested.

I used a burner mail address and didn't add my phone number, but I logged in using the application once. What are the chances it was recommended to contacts?


This would be interesting to find out. So far people I do know in real life and in my contacts have not been recommended to me. It may go by device location more than anything. Block Twitter from reading your location may not show people near by that you may know.

I only follow hardware manufactures but somehow Donald Trump still came up in my recommended to follow list. I'm not even from the US.


protected accounts do not pop up in the who to follow list


>I used a burner mail address and didn't add my phone number,
Actually, I'd bet that the account has since been security-locked for "suspicious activity" due to the lack of a phone number. That's a favourite tactic at Twitter to pull in additional personal info.


I think this only happens if you try to log in using a shared IP address. But yes, if it were a real security feature it wouldn't rely on SMS.


I have a few Twitter accounts to spread some things in the platform. Always create them like this, they get blocked instantly and then I send an email to support saying I didn't do anything suspicious, their system seems to be broken, etc., complaining that keeping people out for not having a mobile is unfair - basically sounding extremely unaware and just asking it back- and they always reinstate within the day.
