WerentÄt you just complaining about wayland?

I mean that's just what you get if you put some tech autists together in a closed environment. As someone who loves Python, earns his daily lunch with mainly JS and never even uaed Linux, I don't even try to post there.

>>110395 >WerentÄt you just complaining about wayland? indeed i suspect that Wayland and systemd are basically a trojan horse [spoiler]but i'm not very knowledgable about history of Linux ecosystem, and how much of it has roots in corporate donations, rather than individual volunteers' commitment[/spoiler]

Ukraine Bernd 2021-02-19 15:02:56 ⋅ 2mn No. 110284
Linux distros are now moving towards Wayland (built by Canonical) and major DE players planning on dropping support for X11, which can pretty much kill the graphical desktops on BSD and many reluctand distros since Wayland relies pretty heavily on systemd (built by Red Hat), which no BSD distro and all the reluctant Linux distros doesn't have does it mean, that once the support for X11 ends, we may expect, apart from forking, that some developers would move towards other OS projects, which exist outside of linux-systemd-wayland ecosystem such as Haiku?
United Kingdom Bernd 2021-02-19 15:24:06 ⋅ 2mn No. 110286
But Wayland has been mostly written by red hat, canonical took ages until they gave up on mir. Also soon there will be nvidia support for xwayland, so the last obstacle towards using it everywhere is gone. Who cares about some random distro noone uses anyways, if they want to stick with Xorg they can, they just have to maintain it themselves.
Germany Bernd 2021-02-19 16:27:07 ⋅ 2mn No. 110287
Irrelevant and obscurantist distros will continue to exist and brew their own alternatives to the systemd ecosystem. Maybe some will die, but some will persist. They are shit already anyway, so I don't worry about this.

>>110292 Good for you if it works. Personally, I don’t care for Distros whose gimmick it is not to use systemd. I just pick whatever is most suitable for my use case from the most popular, best supported ones. Right now it’s Debian for me and kubuntu for my mum.

do you use picrelated? if yes, have you tried to pick instance of searx from and use that? if yes, why do you still prefer picrelated to searx?

to update the apt-get itself type: [b]apt-get update[/b] pretty straightforward, right? to update all packages type: [b]apt-get upgrade[/b] pretty simple, right? to update a single package type: [b]apt-get update && apt-get upgrade[/b] and a [b]package name[/b] because why not both, right?
Russia Bernd 2021-02-17 16:45:08 ⋅ 3mn No. 110118
>>110054 You don't understand what [b]update[/b] actually does and does not. It does not install or update any packages, that's why it does not require any arguments. Actually, you can execute [i]apt-get upgrade <package_name>[/i] without calling [i]apt-get update[/i] before and install a package. Here is your one word.

>>110120 >didn't worked for me this way I'm 98% sure you did something wrong. Have you had somehow older version installed and then tried to install something newer? >apt-get is just retarded That's true, but it also applies to any other package manager which based on apt lib. So you won't find anything better most likely.

>>110123 >Have you had somehow older version installed and then tried to install something newer? yes, i tried to upgrade openjdk, but apt-get threw "package not found" exception, despite the package was definitely installed this is why i started to think that apt-get (or whatever is in under the hood) is retarded >So you won't find anything better most likely. that Ubuntu machine is not mine on my machine i use pacman pacman options are less intuitive i'd say, but way easier to memorize IMO

alternative hypertext protocols

No. 110031
there are protocols still existing and somewhat popular among the tech hipsters who seek to make their lives harder like Gopher and Gemini what's the deal with them? what benefits do they have comparing to HTTP? inb4 JavaScript, you can have a fully functioning website without it
Ukraine Bernd 2021-02-16 20:01:29 ⋅ 3mn No. 110033
>>110032 AFAIK both alternative protocols have their own respective standards of markup language, embedding JS into which is not currently possible
Turkey Bernd 2021-02-16 20:47:42 ⋅ 3mn No. 110037
>>110033 HTTP doesn't have to be associated with browser or text, its just data transfer protocol. JavaScript lies in browser domain. >embedding JS into which is not currently possible JS is a scripting language which is in another words is just a text that can be executed in runtime. So if protocol can transfer text it can transfer JS.

>>110031 Man, I used to love exploring around on Gopher. And it's not like TOR which is just full of stupid shit. The Gopher sites still up are all kinda quirky and interesting tech talk.

>>110032 >modern HTTP/2 has everything it needs Except for speed, weight and practically unusable in any not resource-based networks without knowing beforehand what resource you need. It's not even suitable for web as in 2021 there are still no agreement on how “real” REST interfaces should look like to not be shitty. And that's totally HTTP fault as URL/URI is the reason we can't normally identify different kinds of objects and actions upon them. And that's totally HTTP fault as there are only 8 strictly defined METHODS we can use, and they are pretty shitty in terms of extensibility tbh.

Posting in an tech boards. I'm somewhat of a noob compared to coders, but I know enough to have worked as a tech assistent at university. (Helping boomer professors using wifi and such.) I like using Linux and am fascinated with ricing. But I'm too low IQ to get it right. Often there are some problems, even if I try to follow a tutorial and then I can't fix the problem because all I find are thredas from 2009 that don't apply to my machine anymore and then new problems emerge... I'd like to get good at it, but I feel like it would be a full time job and I'm doing something else, not fiddling with computers as a full time job.

>>110047 This is kinda bullshit. On windows it either works easily or it doesn't work at all. And in my job as IT support there have literally been problems that looked like the Linux one on your graphic. Two paid employees trying to figure out and fix why one computer didn't update for five years. Took two full work days to solve the problem. Linux on the other hand is just as easy for most things. I even installed Ubuntu for my mom, she figured out herself how to change wallpapers and installed two programs with me on the phone. With Linux, you can attempt to do things that just aren't possible on Windows, so you'd never have problems there, but if you choose to make it difficult for yourself, you can with Linux. Ricing is such a topic. You just can't rice Windows in any comparable way, so of course there can't be the same problems.
