We have to fight for everything.

In the infinity of time, if we do not function as a species, we do not exist, fairly logical, not rocket science.
In the infinity of time, all we have to do is try, nothing more, nothing less, even just one person.
In life we have to eat and we have have to fuck and we have to fight.
In twenty three million years we will begin unity and have the intelligence of an ant.
But we have to get there.

Boot into bios, f2 or whatever, & boot what you wish.
Your problem is not unique.
It's easy to go via bios isn't it, what a pain in the backside.
Usually one can organise things in bios.

My great grandfather, born in about 1960, was a medical herbalist (doctors were expensive,) had 16 children, he was a medical herbalist and a coal merchant and a glass blower and he had two sayings, if people knew the value of an onion they would be a guinee(spelling,) each, and if I had a dog and I wanted it to die I would give it chips from a chip shop.

Maybe we need a new /dev/urandom I mean there must be some degree of noise predictability.
How about how the female of the species loads a dishwasher.
This is the best forum on the planet, probably vital.
I love you all.
As the Chinese say, perseverence furthers.
Make no mistake, this forum is most watched with the most beautiful interest.
Read the man in the high castle.
I was gonna wait till my death bed but needed to read it.
Do the audio book if it is correct. Do not do the amazon flick, catastrophic.
Fuck AI
We should endeavour to do correct english because many nations participating in this forum.
I would enjoy waxing lyrical orwellian master but we should be correct .

If you are a professional photographer, then today you cannot do without more or less new top-end hardware and Win.

I know there's at least one Greek on this forum.
What do you call two independent observators stood side by side in Larissa.

I think win7 was probably the best, about a quarter of the size of vista.
I like win7.
Thesedays bill is creating atomic waste, which we will have to get off the planet, ironically will probably need an experimental atomic power station to develop the alloys, it's a work in progress for about three and a half thousand years, I'm not interested.
I'm proud to say that as an artist, I don't have grey matter between my ears, I have a chef salad, after more than a quarter of a century of hard application of effort in Linux, I don't need windows programs.
I'm a photographer, when we get to about 2050/60, maybe, we will nail down the color (US spelling,) balance, which will evolve the human brain. color pictures will be timeless how we percieve monochrome dynamic.
Probably impossible without ffmpeg luma burn.
If I'm abroad and my kit is violently robbed or wrecked, I might need to use artweaver dot de on the fly in an interweb cafe.
Actually now I've turned 55, I have a zero tolerance for violent equipment revision. Wax on wax off. The deepest stratum of your being. You stake your life on your will.
Choices of partitioning tools is very interesting and will always be vital.
Off the top of my head I question that gparted is shoddy.

Briefly, aside from Wayland,
Separate from turning txpower down to 15.
I guess you can turn Power Management off with iw rather than iwconfig, the documentation for iw is the most absolutely horrific.
Atheros default is usually off, new Realtek chips is on and the kernel unhandled firmware interrupt is definately power management I tell you (I never needed all 6 tty doing before, to nail that one,) and Intel chips is probably that.

The other day on telly I watched that film The Martian and I was impressed that the flight director leaked some intel to the space ship with an ASCII file.
Nowadays ttf-dejavu (skeptical for many reasons,) seems to always be a dependency, ttf-bitstream vera survives, pity about ttf-freefont & ttf-liberation, like I said one can modify /etc/fonts.
A few years ago my Mum got hacked in Vista and temporarily lost 22 grand. My brother 'disposed' of the laptop & me and Mum got 2 new laptops, Asus, about 140 quid each.
I went for a 12" 1366x768 & Mum a 14" 1920x1080.
With xrandr I effortlessy change the 1920x1080 to 1600x900 or 1440x810.
I wonder how effortless it is in Wayland.
I suppose I need to bite the bullet and git me a vanguard Wayland live distro based on Debian which I and many are most familiar with since Red Hat 6.
Better would be to refractasnapshot roll my own in Devuan or Debian sysvinit minus systemd to see how much of a pain in the backside Wayland is minus systemd & pure alsa as pulseaudio modifies sound files.
Amongst other things I guess, like ifup ifdown.
I usually netinstall.iso absolute minimal (select install software untick the star for everything.)
I need ifconfig & iwconfig for numerous things.
I mean how cool is Devuan that puts net-tools (ifconfig,) on the netinst, as I've said before I think the interweb would go bang without ifconfig & route & a few other programs.
I use wpasupplicant & am not interested in anybody telling me wpasupplicant is a security problem.
Generating a random MAC in wpasupplicant iw systemd DOES NOT WORK.
ifconfig wlan0 hw ether `/usr/bin/hexdump -n6 -e '/1 "%02x"' /dev/urandom`
X for me is xterm menu xserver-xorg-core xfonts-base xfonts-scalable xserver-xorg-input-evdev xserver-xorg-input-libinput (synaptics is a hack,) xserver-xorg-legacy (Xwrapper.config security feature!) x11-utils x11-xserver-utils.
I like icewm but we all know jwm is so cool as the dependencies are nothing.
Because I run with refractasnapshot I have to install xinit on the fly in order to boot into console.
I don't need a display manager.
I don't use grub, I'd rather walk round Gaza with a nail in my shoe.
Simple question, what's the score with Wayland systemd sysvinit boom boom.

we are kind of stuck with gparted but it's not perfect, qtparted is|was better.
Can you shrink a volume in Winlose8? is there a GUI Windows Disk Management tool?
Some relevance, rodsbooks dot com is the man.

#23 Re: Off-topic » waylandows is crap » 2024-01-04 10:12:29

quickfur is quite correct, the computer tool progresses yet it almost feels still like dial up, suffering the fucking Mercedes adverts, you know what I mean, isn't this primarily why we all strive to bespoke this hardware/software thieving our time, ruining what should not be an unpleasant experience.
steve_v writes very very interesting stuff about display quality which needs to be investigated and studied.
It's a wonder I've still got eyesight, I'm veteran International Press Corps, with particular WMD damage to my eyes, also ageing with hereditary glaucoma. Actually it's not a wonder, it's diet and exercise.
I like ttf-bitstream-vera and I Stanley knife by tarballing conf.avail & conf.d in /etc/fonts to force that.
Good morning. Laters.
Gratitude that some folks have the time to explore clear as mud Wayland and help others.

#24 Re: Off-topic » waylandows is crap » 2024-01-02 16:35:03

And we're gonna need xrandr to scale down these 'improved' too fracking small to read resolutions.
Just open a UXTerm and xrandr that 1920x1080 down to 1600:900.
That's better.

A handful of Linux home users is an illusion, the skulduggery is across the board, Windows, Apple, Android etc., I mean it's not a fish & a bicycle, it's a Ford Chevrolet etc.
