Search - "fat32"
Forgot FAT32 had a file count limit.
Turns out Linux won't stop you from writing too many files to a FAT32 drive.
Turns out this makes FAT32 do *really weird shit.*44
I just hit the scales this morning. I need to lose 10 kg ASAP.
My brain loves programming but my body hates it.19
I die, go to hell and my punishment is to write software for hell network that is having power problems due to light source disruptions and is running on Windows 95 on FAT32 without any service pack.
Network speed is trough 300bps dial up modem. Protocol is over IPX/SPX.
My task is to write interactive websites that are replacement of modern websites but in VBScript, ActiveX, IE 4.0.
I have 10 managers that tell me what to do and scream when I miss deadline that is set everyday without my knowledge at random times.
They send me an email and 5 minutes later they arrive at my desk to ask me about it.
I must work 16 hours a day before I can leave the place and if I won’t show up police beats me and escorts me to the office.
If I’m late a second I don’t get payment.
I can’t afford to rent a place so I sleep in the sleeping bag.
It doesn’t matter much cause as soon as I fall asleep phone rings until I wake up and my manager screams about the problems he have for about an hour.6
For my final project as a first year computer engineer, I have to implement a FAT32 file system using a bare metal c++ compiler that will need to work on arduino uno/due....
I've only been in the computer engineering space for 2 months.
Not sure I can do it, but I'm going to try my best!
Wish me luck10
Programming made me fucking fat as fuck.
I went to Holmes Place after a 2 month no gym period to get counseling.
I have a whoppin 25% body fat and it makes me fucking depressed.
Fuck sitting in front of computers and programming for hours. Fuck snacks and fuck stayibg up late. That shit is bad for you.16
I swear GNU/Linux is the pure definition of a badly designed OS/Kernel
1) The separate file system. Of all things, all the set standards Linux uses exFat which can only be read by Linux. Not NTFS, not FAT32, you know, the common ones.
2) Unintuitiveneness and inefficiency of workflow. Linux is extremely inefficient, especially the cli versions, where one cannot perform several tasks simultaneously.
3) It's MESSY. The use of a Terminal is incredibly uncomfortable, because the text is tightly spaced, and in monochromatic in root. When looking at a large chunk of text, my eyes hurt on a deeper level than physical.
4) It's the most retarded way to handle drives. Why not assign drive letters and names? Why is it dev/sda1 dev/sdb1. If I have two drives of the same capacity, I cannot differentiate between them. How am I supposed to know which is my system drive and which is my portable hard drive that I'm formatting? And this stupid disk utility fdisk. What the fuck is that? Why is the command o wiping the device? Why is t selecting a partition? What the fuck?
5) Stupid naming system. Most CLI commands have deliberately stupid and hard to remember names. Also the prefixes to them such as -x -c or -v, say nothing to me. Reading through the manual in white, tight monochromic text is impossible.
6) Error messages that don't make sense. How am I supposed to know what "Error! [err=/dev/null, arch="27xE39Tmx849D" result="success"]" is supposed to mean? A search will cut down the error and I will find nothing.
7) General hype towards it being "focused on developers". It's not. It's really not. As a developer myself I find it absolutely painful to write code on Linux. It's sluggish, requires it's own set of IDEs and software packages.
People say "Oh you can't write and compile code on Windows". Yes you can. Windows has the exact same set of compilers as Linux, like gcc and gpp. Windows has a versatile and powerful command line. It's hidden from a regular user, because its actually user friendly, and is made for people, not aliens. The fact that you have to download a package manager first to access new ones is what flies over many peoples heads.
Go on start a wreck in the comments35
Today on incompetent profs & classmates...
Dumb student forgets to exit vim and rewrites program 3 times before calling d prof
I ask the prof for approval to use an IDE or a text editor in lab and she has no clue what an IDE is. I installed atom just as she left.
Another kid fooled into thinking web dev has no future.
Apparently I can't use laptop in class to execute programs as "other students may be at loss" i mean wtf that's their fkin problem why do I have to suffer.
Student questions unix prof about the file size limitation in fat32. She had a poker face.
Prof gives "hello world" program to sophomores. Nice.14
I HATE SURFACES SO FRICKING MUCH. OK, sure they're decent when they work. But the problem is that half the time our Surfaces here DON'T work. From not connecting to the network, to only one external screen working when docked, to shutting down due to overheating because Microsoft didn't put fans in them, to the battery getting too hot and bulging.... So. Many. Problems. It finally culminated this past weekend when I had to set up a Laptop 3. It already had a local AD profile set up, so I needed to reset it and let it autoprovision. Should be easy. Generally a half-hour or so job. I perform the reset, and it begins reinstalling Windows. Halfway through, it BSOD's with a NO_BOOT_MEDIA error. Great, now it's stuck in a boot loop. Tried several things to fix it. Nothing worked. Oh well, I may as well just do a clean install of Windows. I plug a flash drive into my PC, download the Media Creation Tool, and try to create an image. It goes through the lengthy process of downloading Windows, then begins creating the media. At 68% it just errors out with no explanation. Hmm. Strange. I try again. Same issue. Well, it's 5:15 on a Friday evening. I'm not staying at work. But the user needs this laptop Monday morning. Fine, I'll take it home and work on it over the weekend. At home, I use my personal PC to create a bootable USB drive. No hitches this time. I plug it into the laptop and boot from it. However, once I hit the Windows installation screen the keyboard stops working. The trackpad doesn't work. The touchscreen doesn't work. Weird, none of the other Surfaces had this issue. Fine, I'll use an external keyboard. Except Microsoft is brilliant and only put one USB-A port on the machine. BRILLIANT. Fortunately I have a USB hub so I plug that in. Now I can use a USB keyboard to proceed through Windows installation. However, when I get to the network connection stage no wireless networks come up. At this point I'm beginning to realize that the drivers which work fine when navigating the UEFI somehow don't work during Windows installation. Oh well. I proceed through setup and then install the drivers. But of course the machine hasn't autoprovisioned because it had no internet connection during setup. OK fine, I decide to reset it again. Surely that BSOD was just a fluke. Nope. Happens again. I again proceed through Windows installation and install the drivers. I decide to try a fresh installation *without* resetting first, thinking maybe whatever bug is causing the BSOD is also deleting the drivers. No dice. OK, I go Googling. Turns out this is a common issue. The Laptop 3 uses wonky drivers and the generic Windows installation drivers won't work right. This is ridiculous. Windows is made by Microsoft. Surface is made by Microsoft. And I'm supposed to believe that I can't even install Windows on the machine properly? Oh well, I'll try it. Apparently I need to extract the Laptop 3 drivers, convert the ESD install file to a WIM file, inject the drivers, then split the WIM file since it's now too big to fit on a FAT32 drive. I honestly didn't even expect this to work, but it did. I ran into quite a few more problems with autoprovisioning which required two more reinstallations, but I won't go into detail on that. All in all, I totaled up 9 hours on that laptop over the weekend. Suffice to say our organization is now looking very hard at DELL for our next machines.4
No wonder why Google Chrome takes up alot of RAM when running, I've just seen chromiums dev requirements:
- A 64-bit Intel machine with at least 8GB of RAM. More than 16GB is highly recommended.
- At least 100GB of free disk space on an NTFS-formatted hard drive. FAT32 will not work, as some of the Git packfiles are larger than 4GB.
- An appropriate version of Visual Studio, as described below.
Windows 7 or newer.11

I ordered a new, speedy, 128gb patriot flash drive last week. I was so excited! I was going to partition it into a fat32 partition, and a bootable Ubuntu with persistence. Now I have the drive and that seems like something I might fuck up, and I don't know why I needed this so badly. I remembered the 10+ 8gb drives I have laying around. I have a problem.3
Lovely... About a week ago I moved my manjaro installation from bios to UEFI.
I ran a system update last night... and, well, my boot broke, cause mkinitcpio failed to build my initramfs. I was up till twelve cause now my system wouldn't mount a fat32 partition, so till I had my esp mounted and finaly fixed, it was 12. (And I wanted to go to sleep early that night)1
Currently running Kubuntu and want to switch to Antegros.
Downloaded Antegros Live ISO from Antegros website.
Format USB to FAT32.
Used UNetBootin to make Antegros bootable USB.
Restarted/boot from USB.
Computer checks drives.
Beeps, says no bootable options found, shutdown button pops up.
Shutdown and turn back on.
Really fucking frustrating. Please help.5
Turns out the PS3's HDD stores a copy of the NAND/NOR by default and they use what i'll deem "confuser FAT" (in both FAT16 and FAT32 flavors) as partitions as they're FAT* partitions with nonsensical/zeroed header bits, which make tools cry ("the first FAT32 partition says the drive has 354 heads, the second partition says 0 and the drive says it has 2...?" "The drive is 320GB, so why in the hell is the partition table reporting a sensical size but the FAT has an entry 2TB thataways?" "This FAT16 filesystem has filenames stored as 16.2 instead of 8.3 natively???")
This shit is long story of my computer experience over my lifetime.
When I was young I got my first PC with windows it was not so bad. It required safe shut down of it’s fat32 partition. From time to time I needed to reinstall it cause of slow down but I got used to it I was only a gamer.
Time passes and I got more curious about computers and about this linux. Everything worked there but installation of anything was complete madness and none of windows programs worked well, and I wanted to play games and be productive so I sticked with windows.
I bought hp laptop once with nvidia card, it was overheating and got broken. So I bought toshiba and all I told to the seller was I want ATI card. Took me 5 minutes to do it and I was faster then my friend buying pack of cigarettes because I was earning money using computer.
Then I grown up running my small one person programming businesses and I wanted to run and compile every fucking program on this world. I wanted linux shell commands. I wanted package manager, and I wanted my os to be simple because I wasn’t earning money by using my os but by programming. So after getting my paycheck I bought mac. I can run windows and linux on vm if I need it. I try not to steal someones work so I didn’t want to run hackintosh. I am using this mac for some time.
Also I use playstation for gaming. Because I only want to run and play game I am not excited about graphics but gameplay. I think I am pragmatic person.
I can tell you something about my mac.
When I close lid it go sleep when I open it wakes up instantly. I never need to wonder if I want to hibernate or shut down or sleep and drain battery. It is fucking simple.
When I want to run or open something it doesn’t want me to wait but it gives me my intellij or terminal or another browser or whatever I search for. Yeah search is something that works.
Despite it got 8 gigs of ram I can run whatever number of programs I want at the same speed. The speed is not very fast sometimes but it’s constant fast.
I have a keychain so my passwords are in one place I can slow down shared internet speed, I can put my wifi in monitor mode and I don’t need to install some 3rd party software.
And now I updated my mac to high sierra, cause it’s free and I want to play with ios compilation. Before I did it I didn’t even backup whole work. I just used time machine and regular backups. And guess what, it still works at the same speed and all I did was click to run update and cook something to eat.
When I got bored I close the lid, when got idea open lid and code shit, not waiting for fucking wakeup or fucking updates.
I wanted to rant apple products I use but they work, they got fucking updates all along at the same time. And all of updates are optional.
I cannot tell that about all apple products but about products I use.
I think I just got old and started to praise my limited time on this world. Not being excited about new crap. When I buy something I choose wisely. I bought iPhone. I can buy latest iPhone x but I bought iPhone 7 cause it’s from fucking metal. And I know that metal is harder then glass, why the fucking apple forgot about it? I don’t know.
I know that I am clumsy and drop stuff. Dropped my phone at least 100 times and nothing.
I am not a apple fan boy I won’t buy mac with this glowing shit above keyboard that would got me blind at night.
I buy something when I know that it can save my time on this world. I try to buy things that make me productive and don’t break after a year.
So now piece of advise, stop wasting your time, buy and update wisely, wait a week or a month or a year when more people buy shit and buy what’s not broken. And if something’s broken rant this shit so next customer can be smarter.
3rd time trying to create a bootable windows usb drive. UEFI simply not finding it in ntfs. Now trying with fat32 as suggested. If that doesn't work, I'll have to kindly ask y grandfather to let me use the pc for a while. Getting so sick of this2
Please help me!
I was trying to fix my fat32 partition with fsck because it had an input / output error.
It's fixed but now all files and folders are read only6
i dug up the undocmented fdisk thing and here it is https://youtu.be/th8wOjigxwU
on DOS 6.22 it just partitions it immediately, on Win98 it updates drive letters and immediately formats it as FAT32 if a partition is defined as being bigger than 2GB
syntax is as follows
FDISK <physical drive number, 0 being unused> /pri:<primary partition size> /ext:<extended partition size> /log:<logical partition size>
