I got Linux mint running on a ssd that I use as a server/desktop. ( amd 8 core with 16gb ram)

All my home movies are on (1)Slave Toshiba 7200 rpm 5TB with 3 TB of data formatted in ext4.

Just bought a WD red 4 TB want to mirror my library in case Toshiba dies

Assuming i should setup a raid 1. Should I get a temporary online backup and start from scratch then set it up the raid?

I have access to windows but prefer to avoid at all costs.

Reddit: Is there anyway to game reliably with Optimus laptops right now?

Tuesday 21st of March 2017 03:00:55 AM

I mean without awful screen tearing of course. About five days ago I decided to get back into Linux since I've missed it a lot, so I dual boot zorin os. I tried every guide I could find all over the web for Ubuntu to set up bumblebee but I couldn't get it to work. Steam would return errors when I tried to launch it with optirun or primusrun. Though I could put in the command to launch a game after running steam and it would launch the game but it still wouldn't be using my nvidia GPU. I got prime to work fine but I don't wanna deal with awful screen tearing system wide and having to re log just to swap gpus.

Fast forward a few days and a few reinstalls of zorin os, I give up on zorin I've always wanted to try Arch out anyway. So I go for Manjaro. My experience with KDE has been awful. Booted up and had so many issues just trying to set my primary and secondary display, half the time one display wouldn't even show my desktop so I wasn't even able to try setting up bumblebee or anything on Manjaro.

Onto another distro, I decided I'd try Antergos and I pick​ed cinnamon as the desktop this time. I had zero issues with setting up and using cinnamon, this time around went really well. So I start following the wiki to try to get bumblebee working, I try opening steam and launching rocket league with optirun or primusrun, still not working, still launching with my Intel gpu even though bumblebee didn't return any errors. What did work is launching steam (runtime) as a whole through primusrun and finally! Rocket league launched with my nvidia GPU with 0 screen tearing. It was an amazing feeling. Then I spent two hours trying to figure out why my ds4 controller wouldn't work, and try to figure out why steam was hard freezing to the point that I had to restart the computer every 5 minutes.

Can someone help me before I go mad? I've read that v sync can be accomplished with nvidia prime but it requires building your own x server abi or something like that so I don't even know where to begin to do that. If someone can point me in the right direction or give me any advice I would greatly appreciate it because I'm all out of ideas. I really want to use Linux as my daily driver, Arch especially but can't do it if I cant do some gaming every now and then.

Edit: forgot to mention that i was only able to do it successfully on antergos with steam (runtime), if i launched the native steam using the same method it wouldnt use my nvidia gpu

Reddit: To new the Vim users out there: If you're annoyed by the use of the escape key, bind it to caps lock instead.

Tuesday 21st of March 2017 02:10:22 AM

This can be done really easily, by using xorg setxkbmap. Just run setxkbmap -option caps:escape at startup and enjoy! (This really helped me)

Reddit: How is data produced, consumed, or transformed?

Tuesday 21st of March 2017 12:46:13 AM

I'm doing a research project on smartwatch OS's and i was wondering about this question. I understand the whole you type commands in a language to get prompts or display images, but is there anything else that is crucial about data? It would be nice to know if there is anything else like bits, bytes, and all that jazz

    However, a legitimate criticism has been that there's very little transparency in Microsoft's signing process.

A large part of this is simply that demand has been greater than expected, and Microsoft aren't in the best position to review code that they didn't write in the first place.

  • YaST Team: Highlights of YaST development sprint 32
    One of the known limitations of the current installer is that it’s only able to automatically propose an encrypted schema if LVM is used. For historical reasons, if you want to encrypt your root and/or home partitions but not to use LVM, you would need to use the expert partitioner… and hope for the best from the bootloader proposal. But the new storage stack is here (well, almost here) to make all the old limitations vanish. With our testing ISO it’s already possible to set encryption with just one click for both partition-based and LVM-based proposals. The best possible partition schema is correctly created and everything is encrypted as the user would expect. We even have continuous tests in our internal openQA instance for it. The part of the installer managing the bootloader installation is still not adapted, which means the resulting system would need some manual fixing of Grub before being able to boot… but that’s something for an upcoming sprint (likely the very next one).
