Seems fine to me except for all the firewall and special routing stuff, I’m not familiar with that. Does the wg command show received or only sent data? For the record, this is my config:

The AI-focused COPIED Act would make removing digital watermarks illegal (as well as training any kind of AI on copyrighted content) (www.theverge.com)

  1. Stop using GRUB, it’s a horrible legacy sprawling mess, most of which you don’t need
  2. Windows doesn’t delete the bootloader with EFI boot, just make sure you have free partition space for it to create the system partition and a large enough EFI partition.
2xsaiko ,
@2xsaiko@discuss.tchncs.de avatar

For 2, has this actually ever happened to anyone in uefi times? Mbr overwrite was the good old times, now we have something at least better

I assume this is just from people remembering how that happens with MBR boot and just assuming it does the same with EFI.

Right after Windows 8 got released, I upgraded to it on my 2011 budget laptop. I don’t know what exactly the problem was, I think there was both a problem with there being a high chance of not getting any output on the display after waking up from hibernation, and it also frequently bluescreened when booting. I was playing around with various distros before then but that was when I nuked Windows and switched to it as primary OS.

(That bluescreen bug on the laptop still wasn’t fixed with Windows 10 when that came out. Lmao)

Possible to use Linux for Wi-Fi drivers on Windows?

Sorry if this is slightly off topic, I searched for communities about tech support on here and couldn’t find anything that wasn’t dead in the water. Basically I want to use WPA3 on my Network, however my Windows partition doesn’t support WPA3 for some reason. I only keep that piece of trash around for school work. My...

You cannot cross-compile Linux kernel drivers for Windows. The API is completely different (and I kinda doubt anyone has made a compatibility layer like ndiswrapper).

Problem with File transfer

Hello Everybody I’ve been encountering a recent occurred Problem with my installation of Debian 12. When I plug in my Phone (Fairphone 4) to transfer some large files, it won’t get recognized, which is odd because I do this every few Weeks and since a couple of months this keeps happening. It will something like:...

YaST. I didn’t know why they insist on keeping it, I guess at this point it’s such cost fallacy.

What do you mean? I love the idea of a comprehensive central system config tool. I haven’t used OpenSuSE in ages but it always stood out to me as a huge plus.

2xsaiko ,
@2xsaiko@discuss.tchncs.de avatar

Ah, I see, that’s unfortunate. That’s generally a real problem with tools that try to edit existing writable config files.

I really want to make a distro which is built on top of basically a GUI-first (at least for most general configuration) NixOS kinda thing, where you both have to go through the tool but it also doesn’t limit you in what you can do. That’s a huge endeavor though especially to get it right :^)

When I had to use Office and LibreOffice wasn’t sufficient, I just had a Windows VM running. The web versions are hot garbage (or at least used to be 3 years ago and I doubt that’s changed). I’m not sure if there’s a direct way to mount OneDrive on Linux (rclone maybe?) but if there isn’t you could do that via a network share over the VM.

KMail can connect to Exchange mailboxes. KOrganizer might even be able to access the calendar from one, I don’t remember.

According to Apple (and I’m sure people have already investigated it), location data is encrypted in such a way that only the owner of the device can read the transmitted location. So no, this isn’t going to “associate your IP address with your location”.

Only you can see where your AirTag is. Your location data and history are never stored on the AirTag itself. Devices that relay the location of your AirTag also stay anonymous, and that location data is encrypted every step of the way. So not even Apple knows the location of your AirTag or the identity of the device that helps find it.

OSM doesn’t really track live and exact public transport schedules (you can define static routes and say which interval the tram/whatever comes but that’s about it). Organic Maps is working on implementing live data: github.com/organicmaps/organicmaps/issues/5331

At one point Google Maps moved my whole apartment building/address three streets from where it should be. It was wrong for months even though I reported it when I had to keep telling delivery people that got misdirected because they used it to navigate. Anecdotal evidence etc.

What email client are you guys using?

I just can’t find a decent email client that looks like it’s from the last 20 years. Geary and Evolution both appear to be pretty modern but something about using Gmail with a Yubikey just doesn’t work and neither of them will connect to my account. Both on Fedora and OpenSUSE. Thunderbird works but it’s so old fashioned...

If you need less information on screen, they invented a great thing for that in the 90s: resizable windows. And later, HiDPI-aware interface scaling.

That is the right way to control information density. The user can control both of these however they like and set it to whatever they work best with, and it applies across the system. You can’t do that with usually custom written interfaces that insist on putting like two lines of text worth of whitespace between every UI element.

I’m using a custom ROM with microG, which potentially means no RCS since it is only available through Google Messages which doesn’t work with microG.

This is a common misconception. Android just doesn’t let you access the necessary low level stuff to talk to carrier RCS services. If you’re already using a custom ROM that may not be a problem. Here’s a third party RCS demo app: github.com/Hirohumi/RustyRcs

I don’t know how actually usable this is though, or if there’s anything else that’s usable that’s not Google Messages.

I actually switched from Android to iPhone maybe a year and a half ago, after I got an iPad to take notes on for university and really enjoyed using it.

  • I hate Google
  • I mostly like how iOS works
  • I mostly don’t like how Android works, it has a lot of rough edges and jank (imo, partially resulting from stock apps sucking or just not being there at all but there not being enough low level access for third party apps to provide a well integrated replacement)
  • Shortcuts/Automation is amazing
  • Builtin Calendar/Contacts/Reminders apps are amazing and especially lets me connect to my DAV server without any hassle
  • Nobody has built anything that comes close to Apple’s cross-device interactions (but I guess that’s also Apple’s and Google’s fault for locking the systems down)
  • A consistent look and feel across the system is very important to me and iOS apps seem to care more about that. Even Google’s own apps used different visual styles sometimes last I used it
  • The hardware and OS looks nice without being overly flashy, it just hits that sweet spot of “pleasant design”
  • If I want to develop apps I really don’t want to touch anything related to Java

Are those flatpak haters that say that in the room with us right now? The main difference with distro repos is that packages in it are packaged by the distro packagers and everyone who has an opinion on flatpak should know that this is how it works.

Is there a text editor/notes app that adds Unicode symbols?

For example, there is Material Notes which has a editor toolbar with bold, indented, stroke, etc. But this is rendered, exported to json or syntax like Markdown. This app too, in which i write this on lemmy, does the same. We have ☐, ☒, •, ‣ in Unicode, 𝗕𝗼𝗹𝗱, 𝑖𝑛𝑑𝑒𝑛𝑡, s̵t̵r̵o̵k̵e̵, so...

What is the functional difference between the President having immunity for “official acts” and the powers granted to the German President under Article 48 of the Weimar Constitution?

Anyone know what toggle they are talking about? I’m not seeing anything in Messages settings nor Cellular settings. Or do they mean the toggle is US-exclusive?

I need to mention the Enigma Trilogy here. It uses the retro graphics so well to its advantage to create a strong horror atmosphere that I don’t think could have been done anywhere near as well with high fidelity graphics.

Can we stop referring to the “what color is your function” post for languages it doesn’t apply for? Contrary to Javascript (where it does apply), Rust with tokio has adapters for both async -> sync (Runtime::spawn_blocking) and sync -> async (Runtime::block_on). It probably isn’t a good idea to overuse spawn_blocking but calling an async function from a sync one is literally no problem.

I mean I give it a 100% chance if they are allowed to keep going like this considering the enormous energy and water consumption, essentially slave labor to classify data for training because it’s such a huge amount that it would never be financially viable to fairly pay people, and end result which is to fill the internet with garbage.

You really don’t need to be an insider to see that.

I played so much TF2 from probably around 2014 until the dreadful matchmaking update. Still played a bit afterwards but not nearly as much. By far the most I’ve played Spy and Engineer, always liked them because they were the most unique. Scout after that.

This makes no sense to me, this effectively seems like a loan to me which is useful if you have a single large payment that you want to kind of spread the load on your account by turning it into a recurring payment over some amount of time, but groceries are a recurring payment already so what does this do other than make you pay interest on top? By the time you’ve paid off the first one you’ve probably bought groceries three more times.
