Hydrus is really good for porn and made by an user that can actually get beyond designing a logo. I don't have the autism to tag any of my reaction images, so it's useless to me beyond that.
He's even got a board here, /hydrus/index.html

The grsecurity kernel patchsets.

That and gcc, probably going to be my demise.

So what do you suggest?
Also second statement needs proofs, I know they stopped supporting them but there's no better alternative.
For the first statement, I don't need the newest features just yet unless there is something big in the update that I am missing?

Wyatt Sanders

they stopped supporting them

Literally who? The grsecurity people shoahed the patchsets unless you pay alot of money for (((special support))). The old patch sets are fine if you have them but who the fuck is going to preserve those patches over linux kernel versions? Some faggot gentoo user? No (((they))) will kill anyone who preserves them publicaly, eventually. Or at the very least target their supplying of the patches for subversion should it ever get popular again. GCC 8.0 is fucked because of (((performance improvements))) amongst other things like meson.

James Russell
James Russell

Already knew about this, the (((bourgeoisie))) stopped giving patches for free. It's the gentoo hardened team that fail to support the current set wifi any new set of patches I thought you were talking about.
It's no use complaining unless you may have some other more secure alternative.

Jaxon Walker
Jaxon Walker

It's no use complaining unless you may have some other more secure alternative.
Install gentoo, there is some user there that is preserving the patche set somewhere..... Or install openbsd that you self-compile or use templeOS until that rust based OS I forget the name of is completed. Redox or something like that?

I work as a computer technician and testdisk is awesome for recovering files off people's PCs. And you can make it look like you're doing something super complex, boot using a live usb and tiling window manager for maximum *haxor* effect

Pretty useful indeed, and there's no shitty GUI holding you back - the CLI does more than enough.

Also adding Krita and MyPaint (latter one is really great if you got a tablet and want to sketch/doodle).

I use Inkscape regularly and it's remarkably good and easy to use for a foss image program.
Genuinely curious what is it that make emacs with a plugin to make it like vim better than vim?

Chase Ortiz

Coreboot. Or even the n00b-proof version Libreboot.

FYI there's now OpenRCT and it has multiplayer.

Inkscape
This one deserves more love, it's nice for vectoring images.

If the patches are open source, then can't the Gentoo people just buy them, put them on their servers, and distribute them gratis?

Parker Robinson

Nope, works fine with ReplayGain. Maybe something on your system is outdated or broken.
ReplayGain is a feature is a lot of music players that normalizes volume across your music library, so if you have a vinyl rip and a brickwalled remaster track on the same playlist, the remastered track and the vinyl rip have the same volume instead of you having to keep an eye on your volume knob. Great stuff.

I've been unable to get a Medicat USB working, so I use Hiren's Boot CD with Parted Magic.

I work in a retail tech store, so the others I work with don't really have any idea how to do anything, so I keep a Linux Mint USB around for them to test hardware with.

Thanks for the info about Replaygain. What I want to know is how Replaygain is inherently broken with Opus.

Rockbox.
Since I picked up a cheapo Apple 5thgen 120GB ipod to replace my dead Sansa Clip I need to flash it.
Also, are there free replacement firmwares for homebrew consoles? I'm wondering because I got a PSP to hack around with.

Opus uses ITU-R BS.1770-4 (also known as EBU R128) instead of replaygain (and it's better), but a lot of players don't like those tags. Simply use opus in ogg and all your problems are solved.

Justin Gomez

Not him, but I use grml.

It's my go-to for installing Gentoo as well.

I need my new encodes to work nicely alongside my existing mp3 library.
