So I just wrote a Ruby script to encrypt some files in AES.
I started it, it's designed to show the key when it's finished. It encrypted 7 files, then Kaspersky pops up and deletes my entire Ruby installation.
Set visual studio off installing,
Take a dump,
Meet a girl,
Fall in love,
Start a family,
Die peacefully at home surrounded by your family and friends,
Me in a Windows vs Linux debate: "but can you play minesweeper during the installation?" - Linux wins12

Why am I still watching a spinning circle?12
Suddenly my KDE neon installation didn't want to start anymore. (emergency recovery shell)
Immediately searching for solutions, praying for the best...
Saw a suggestion about removing any custom /etc/fstab entries. Removed an entry i added earlier today.
Boots again right away, fuck yeah, Linux, I fucking love you ❤︎6
When doing first level support....
[windows desktop software]
Me: How can I help you?
Client: I installed the latest update from your website yesterday, but the version number hasn't changed
Me: You downloaded version *** ?
Me: And you installed it?
Me: Did you get an error message during the installation?
Client: No, everything worked fine, no errors
Me: And the installation process was completed?
Client: I think so
Me: Hmmm... Lets try it again. I will assist you.
Me: Start your browser and open the website.
Client: ..... did it
Me: Good. Now click on the link to the download page.
Client: .... did it
Me: Do you see the the update package at the top of the list?
Me: Ok. Now click on it.
Downloaded a program on a friends laptop and started the installer and asked her to finish the installation. She clicked cancel and asked me where to open up the program6
At the risk of getting people butthurt.
Why do you all have to post linux-installation screens?
*Look at me, I'm installing linux, I'm in the elite, I'm so special*
I'm sorry snowflakes, but you don't see people posting images about installing Windows and being like 'I'm so special'.15
Gotta love how straightforward the installation guide for Elixir is written for windows
(I'll choose the second one though)2
Just moved, new room, let's try to setup port forwarding!
Well, i thought that too. Just spent hours trying to get this motherfucker to work. Tutorials, everything.
Every time that damn can't connect error. About to lose my shit.
Suddenly *hold on, is Apache installed on my new KDE Neon installation?!*
I have a demo tomorrow, my windows installation just decided to commit suicide by update
clearing of unwanted stuff in the warehouse, i got called for some "IT" stuff, not in the picture, the Win 3.1 installation "save icon"9
My love towards Microsoft:
When install Windows 10, world's most advanced operating system, I agree to use express installation to make sure I am sharing all the information with Microsoft.
Right after installation, I chose Microsoft Edge as my default browser. Can't live without it really. I also make sure my search engine is set to Bing!
Then I continue to setup Cortana and share all my personal information with her. I install office 365 to to work with my documents and use skype to chat with my friends.
Then I install Visual studio and set all my projects to Windows Application only. I mean who uses any OS other than Windows?
It doesn't finish there. Groove Player is my first choice for listening to music, Film and TV for my videos and etc.
I also always use Microsoft Maps to find my way to work!
Brought two laptops: Linux and windows
Forgot charger for windows.
Graphics not working properly in linux
Three hours of package installation, documentation diving, package removal, driver fuckery and other assorted fun
I can now play Minecraft.6
Dad: "Install this apk for me"
*try it and installation fails*
Me: "I checked the repo and it's for a much older version of Android. Won't work for you."
Dad: "Don't be a quitter. It can definitely be done."
Please stop asking me for help.6
Fuck yes for data hoarding! Wanted to start on a project again but thought I lost everything.
Code is sill in git, (took me a while to find but whatever) database is still on my own laptop (due to ex/importing my entire local host as for databases every time I do a new installation).
Let’s get this fucker going again 😎4
Bought a second hand phone because my current one drains too fast (battery).
Flashing through the recovery doesn't work, I need Odin.
Only windows installation I have left (spare laptop I hardly use) crashes every time I boot up.
Linux version of an alternative is downloadable but the site gives a shit ton of errors.
Well fuck me sideways right now.20
Me doing monday morning Support because all of our fucking support members were not available.
Me: Can you navigate to the Installation path of our Software.
Me: with the Windows File explorer
Customer: i dont have That
me: Explaining how to navigate to the install location (thinking: fuck my life)8
Been working on making my Linux installation pretty for the past few days – already posted on r/unixporn but I figured there might be a few people on here who would appreciate it. Link to the post: https://reddit.com/r/unixporn/...13
Just finished installing Deepin OS on my old laptop as an attempt to get familiar with linux (coming from win10). It looks gorgeous, I got at least four orgasms from the installation process alone. And it comes with lots of cool apps preinstalled (Chrome, Spotify, Steam, etc). So far I'm very happy with it.30
Friend: *complains about some android studio installation problem for 3 minutes continuosly *
Me: "Hey what OS do you use?"
Him: "the normal OS"
Today I missed a date with newly met girl just because I was struggling with archlinux installation on my new notebook. I just forgot about it.2
Installing Ubuntu in VMWare. After the installation, proceeded to install VMWare tools to get the full resolution.
Shitloads of errors. Kernel build failing, gcc exiting with error code other than 0, all the copying failed. At the end of the process the executable says:
---The VMWare Team
What the fuck am supposed to enjoy? My broken fucking Ubuntu in a VM?6
Found my missing flash drive... at the bottom of my broken washing machine... *sigh*
So I've got a broken Windows installation, destroyed flash drive and a washing machine that decided to explode and trip all circuit breakers in the building... what's next?25
So after you fucked your Ubuntu installation last year because you decided to `chmod -R 777 /` you are telling me that you did the same to /home and /var/lib because the former intern "told you so"?!?!
How can someone be SO FUCKING STUPID??
My boss ladies and gentleman...5
Why the fuck would iTunes or any product from Apple (or anywhere) care what Outlook is doing or if it's even there?!?
I have no settings, add-ons, mods, apps, or anything that would justify this!
And it came TWICE in a single update installation!!!11
Okay... I think I will just delete AppData to have a stable Windows installation.
I didn't download that fucking 56MB Skype Installation File just to get this message:
"Please install Skype from the Windows Store for better Performance."
NO I WANTED TO INSTALL THE OLD SKYPE NOT THIS BUGGY PIECE OF SHIT!2
GUYS I DID IT
AND I ONLY HAD TO LOOK AT THE ARCHWIKI FOR GRUB INSTALLATION
AM I COOL NOW
(going to install to my computer a little later, don't worry i'm not done here)8
Junior dev requests for sudo access on a server instance for some package installation, gets it, figures out how to open the root shell - never goes back. They do everything on root.
Fast forward to production deployment time, their application won't run without elevated privileges. Sysadmin asks why does the application require elevated privileges. Dev answers, "Because I set it up with root" :facepalm:15
Meet my new toy, Centos7 as of this afternoon (once I get the usb burned and installation done)
She's not much to look at, but she's mine.10
Well thank you Apple for this awesome 10.13.whatever update that got my MBP into a failed installation with no way to boot the os or revert the update without losing shit and a lot of time, arghhhh :/
Also: yay, first rant10
So awesome to see 112 of my 400 steam titles, including some of the AAA ones work on my new Linux installation.2
>Instructions in the manual -
1. Install Python 3.5
2. After installation is complete, open a new terminal/command prompt window and run 'pip install pandas'
1. Installs Python 3.7.2
2. Types Python in command prompt, types 'pip install pandas' there
3. Raises a hue and cry over the program not working because the instructions were not clear
So Microsoft have not only decided to make it so you can't install indvidual parts of Office, but you also have no choice as to where it gets installed... Straight into "C:\Program Files".
These days when more and more people are using multiple hard drives, what possible benefit can removing installation options have??12
Android Studio Installation.
What is the fucking point of giving an option to install the software somewhere other than C drive when the installation fails if done so.
Fucking cunts, multi billion dollar company my ass. Go to hell you stupid fucks.15
I just remembered I had changed my system settings from 'lock after 5 mins of inactivity' to 'lock never' (during an installation)
But I can't remember if I actually logged off after work! Dammit.5
-almost there ...
My little sister: hey! Can you install this game on my tablet?
Me: no! I'm busy right now
Me: okay! okay!
<installation process >
What was I doing?...
That's how everything gets ruined :/7
Just because a developer is a programming wizard does not mean we are physical hardware installation wizards as well.
I hate when people ask me to setup their personal home systems; especially networked printers.3
Showed my girlfriend a portion of my wine installation process, and got this picture almost immediately
she's a keeper3
So last semester, my college made a class compulsory to attend.
We were taught, "How to install MongoDB on Windows"...
With screenshots, not even live installation.
I wanted to die.. So much.. 😖4
I've been using Linux for almost 2 years now, but as an installation from a USB stick. Today 8th Nov, 2018 I've decided to finally get rid of my windows installation from the main drive after not having booted into it forever. Programs, music and code junk by 14yo me. I will miss you.
Almost through the wipe. Past the point of return now!
"The hardest part in programming is installing what you need."-the guy that almost threw it's PC out of the window because he spent 2 hours installing the wrong version of opencv3
"Linux is shit because nothing works on my new DOM 2017/2018 laptop!"
Yes it's true that nothing will work if you put your finking ubuntu 14.04 installation with a fucking old 3.13 kernel in your new Laptop!
Update. Your. Fucking. System.6
Staying at friend's place bcz he had corei5 and I had p4 for uni project. We were making arch linux and package installation took whole night on slow net. Made bash script of possible sequence of commands and we slept.
In morning when we woke, it was perfect!2
Installers that copy files into a default directory without letting me change the installation path.. fuck whoever does that!6
If I do it in python : Finish in one day!
If I do it in C++ :
1 week for installation and configuration
3 days for coding
Another 1 day for troubleshooting...
But I will still prefer do it in C++.5
I messed up my Windows XP Pro installation so many times as a teen (and just opted for a reinstall) that I can still remember the product key off by heart. Surprisingly it also became a great pub story.6
Trying to install .NET Framwork 3.5 and this message comes up *headdesk*
WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME, MICROSOFT!?7
- I am leaving the company, so you will work on my project.
- (looks at code) But there is no single doc string or any documentation apart from the installation guide.
- Yes, but the project is really easy to understand.
... I will just sit here trying to understand your code instead of doing actual work.
While trying to install OpenSUSE on my home server, something has gone wrong...
I appear to have installed OpenSUSE onto the flash drive plugged into my server instead... 😐10
So there is a WP plugin for GDPR conformity. True to form of the shitty WP plugin ecosystem, it has a major security hole that allows taking over the WP installation:
A Gentoo installation might be fun, but it sure as hell isn't worth it, both in time and effort. Broken audio, broken video, broken stability. A broken kernel that doesn't recognize the hard drive or the network interface. And half a week to compile the fucking thing and it's still not done. This is not the right distribution for me.3
Windows 10 has just decided to reboot my notebook during the installation of Qt... because the updates are more important...
Company switched some users from windows 7 to windows 10 overnight. Installation failed for most of the Dev team.
- No admin access
- Files missing
- Programs missing
Result : we can't work :/6
FUCKING FINALLY TIME!!!
I did it! I made IntelliJ IDEA find my Android SDK installation!
Now I can experience the joy of Gradle build times!!!
Why did Google had to make so difficult to work with Android without its Studio?!?!?!12
Things that only happen on Windows:
1. Windows updates itself with a security-update
2. On next reboot, upgrade procedure fails and reverts changes
You cannot prevent the update, you cannot shutdown or reboot without the update and it takes around 30 minutes to install and revert every time during boot.
There is a saying; "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again but expecting different results." I therefore officially proclaim insanity of my Windows installation.5
Waiting for Visual Studio 2013 installation to finish for 2 hours. Stuck at work while I could be home by this time
*Hatred towards Microsoft intensifies*9
*Has idea that will change the world!*
*finds awesome software to help accomplish said idea*
$apt install awesome-software
*Get weird error: Google error for 30 minutes and (of course!) come up with nothing useful and finally*
$apt install awesome-software
Now.. What was my idea again?!?!
Trying to install macOS High Sierra. However the installation file seems to be corrupt. And it keeps rebooting halfway through the install cycle never allowing me to intervene and reset and revert to my previous iOS. Thanks Apple FML11
A coworker has just finished setting up his new linux installation after removing windows when windows 10 was released. Caught him out with fakewindowsupdate.com, he thought microsoft was forcing it.
A new update has been made to dr!
For us lazy People:
You can now make a file at ~/ called .dr.conf
In the first line of the file, put your username
In the second line, put your password
Dr will now automatically log in
(Yes I know this is insecure)
Also, for installation:
I have been really trying to move away from windows but videogames won't let me. I would instantly fully drop windows if there was a good way of being able to run league of legends on my arch installation.7
So this week we had another team come to us and say they need to go into production...only issue...they have nothing...sorry that's wrong they have something...a vbs script to do their installation which doesn't work...
VMs.....You always have to install Google chrome... Can't OSs just include it in the installation? No Microsoft is forcing you to use Edge and Internet Explorer11
Tired of installing Arch, I've made a script to automatize the installation. I'm going to upload it later. :DDD3
Recently did a fresh installation of brothers laptop of windows 10 and found this gem at after installing chrome and running it for the first time
suck it micro$oft1
I am just so thankful to Ubuntu for providing the minimal installation option. These small changes really makes the OS more friendly :)3
Just went to grab a USB stick from my pile of random sticks, to make a windows installation drive. Well lucky me, happened to grab one with an iso already on it1
I recently fucked my pc up by installing the latest AMD drivers. Couldn't get past the lock screen.
I tried to revert to a restore point but, well, it failed and the installation would not boot at all afterwards.
Thanks a fuck ton, AMD and MS.14
Fml. Im occasionally helping a friend who is taking an intro cs class. Well today I needed to Skype him but Skype wasn't installed yet. Didn't think when clicking through the installation process so bing is now my search bar. Fml....7
If it crashes, it's linux :/
Even the OS installation crashes, they call it stable release with LTS.11
The updating process on my Arch installation went banana's... Ugh... I wanted to do some coding and not fix this bullshit :(9
Just tried to install the english language pack for Visual Studio 2015 Enterprise (the thousands of bucks edition). Well... the setup displayed "DEU" for german and later tried to switch to "EN" resulting in "ENU". First WTF moment.
But what really killed me was the error message... please restart the PC BEFORE the installation? Just wow.9
While studying business information technology (useless btw), we had to take these exams with Microsoft Office programs.
When it was time for Excel exam, we were given this sheet of instructions on what to do, and it even listed the exact functions you had to use.
The fun started when I realized that my Windows installation was in English, so my Excel installation was also in English. The instruction sheet and the functions listed in it were in my native language.
Because Excel is probably the shittiest thing ever made, this is the part where you know you are fucked. The functions listed in the instructions don't even exist in the English version (same goes vice versa btw), so what can you do?
You implement the fucking functions. Never used VB before that day, and never will again.
But I got a perfect score.2
Motherfucking cocksucking Microsoft windows. The worst software ever written by shittiest developers.
Mother fucker blowed up all the partitions ( Linux installation, root and /home partition ), including windows recovery disk.
I wish, your HQ will blow up the same way, someday.
Bill Gates .... Go fuck yourself with a iron rod12
I've got myself a new notebook. Lenovo ideapad 330.
Had troubles with the installation, but I will be using elementary os in a few minutes! I'm excited!
Am I the only one who thinks the installation process for arch linux should be narrated by Jigsaw from the Saw movies?1
Can any dev's recommend a good windows emulation program that supports x64 applications?
Really want to be able to run Gamemaker studio 2 on Linux but would rather not install a fully fledged VM.
I'm willing to work with a VM but just rather not have a 12GB installation for a 256MB program...39
Intend to help a friend to find out what's wrong with a software installation in his laptop today...
But forgot that his Windows installed in Chinese version... how am I supposed to help.... (; _ ;)
I can't read Chinese... can't even find how to open Control Panel...
My native language is not English, but I always have all my techies set up in English.8
Forcing the dev to be the only one doing QA should be considered animal cruelty. That's like making the plumber take a shit after every new toilet installation. That was a terrible analogy.3
I was passing through a street where I found a sign board that said "Linux installation certified course"
What has the world come to these days?
So i heard from my friend that CTO had asked Android team to make the app be able to root the phone upon installation.
Dude wtf are you smoking?!2
Today I woke up and my old Windows 7 desktop welcomed me with a fresh Windows 10 installation. I'm still trying to figure out who did it because it wasn't me or my wife. I only remember saying no multiple times to the upgrade request. At least I don't notice it being any slower.10
Had two issues with my new Manjaro installation.
-Fixed DM getting stuck on boot by disabling DM
-Fixed touchpad issue by installing drivers
No fuss. Not much googling. Didn't fuck anything up. No Grub rescue. All my files are still where I left them. WiFi still works. This is a historic day.3
I finally decided to switch to Linux (I still have Windows for work, but I want to give Linux a try too). I was about to complete the installation (Arch Linux so I was quite tired and stressed cause of fuck ups) when BOOM my fucking phone with the installation guide falls on my laptop's power button and powers it off. Fuuuuuuuuuuuckkkk. I have to do everything again. Shit.4
Fuck me. 5 installation attempts later, still can't get arch to boot after removing the live usb. Do I have the wrong fucking kernel, cause it can't find it during boot now. Fucking hell, I just want this shit to run.30
Bought a new 1TB ssd from Intel for my laptop. The installation of the drive itself went perfectly, it works like a charm. But then I had to do a clean install of windows and ubuntu, and that's where things went wrong. The drive still works perfectly, but everything else has fallen apart. I've been fighting with them the whole working day and haven't got anything work related done. Well, a few more hours and I can head home and continue the installation with a few cold beers, that should help getting it done ;)1
- New Windows installation
- Decides to update windows
- 5 hour leater:
- Still updating: 2/583727
- Thinks Linux is better
- Stay in front of my computer waiting for the update to finish2
Updated Win10. After the installation I realized that my C drive was full.
Why? Windows.old folder was 43gb big
...Aaaand it's built!
Couple problems though:
- The power supply has massive coil whine when the computer is shut down
- I can't seem to get a windows installation on my USB drive12
I was working with a stable installation of an elaborated platform. Some plugins were installed. After upgrading the installation by 2 patch level the customer registration was not working anymore.
In these two patch level a method in an interface got an additional optional parameter which had a major impact on the behaviour the implemented method. A plugin decorated the implementation without knowing about the new parameter. Therefore when calling the method the decorating class did not pass the new parameter in to the decorated implementation and the fallback value was given instead.
The caller expected the method to do something and did not branch into an alternative way but the default value disables the expected behaviour. Eventually nothing happened.
Breaking changes in patch levels woop di fucking do.2
I'm simply going to go to bed, and hope that by the time I wake up, the cPanel installation is complete.5
Neighbours asked me to help them setting up their new printer.
Bug: Installation of the driver fails.
Fix: The printer has to be turned on during installation.
I earned 20 bucks for this single press of only one button.
First-Level-Support in the neighbourhood: Annoying but pays like hell.3
note to self:
install the fucking network tools DURING the Arch installation, BEFORE you reboot and remove the install media.
wrote this handy dandy notebook guide up because i get tired of having to look up the archwiki12
Why does it seem like every application these days needs to restart after performing any kind of update or installation? It's even more annoying when you just don't restart then launch the application and everything works fine...
Apparently this software got stuck somewhere back in the nineties. Got a fresh installation to make sure issues were not arising from outdated hardware - still connection errors, API errors, horrible, unresponsive and ugly UI, what a broken piece of ****.9
This company's API simply wraps python commands from "client.get_data" to http://service_host/get_data. I spent 30 minutes trying to get through your stupid PIP installation crap, to find out all you do is wrap python's urllib2 library with 4 lines of code?
*2am on a Friday*
Me: installs parrotsec to docked HDD with plans to transfer to my mobile pentest rig (a cheap Latitude with a Core Duo)
Me: forgets to change location of GRUB installation to external drive
Me: *boots up my MBP*
Mbp: your boot volume is corrupted, attempt GRUB rescue?
I tried setting up XAMPP for running my friends code.. it took 5hrs and faced atleast one issue in every step from installation to running.
1) XAMPP Did not download itself, found that internet was down.
2) downloaded finally, installation phase went till 98% fatal error, windows collecting info for diagnosis
5)after 3 tries , suddenly it installed successfully
6)Apache force shut, every time I started it
7)1.5 hours later found VM had occupied the port 80, making it shut.
Changed the port
8)PHPmyadmin was recent ,that SQL 5.1 support was not There.
9)Now after setting up new instance of MySql 5.6 , created conflict.
Project referred one instance and PHPmyadmin referred other
10) Changed port numbers and added service entry in windows to make it work
At last the struggle ended up with happy ending.
My installation story precisely
Iam new to PHP development and XAMPP.6
I find it so weird when I install Linux on my hardware it runs perfectly. But when ever my friends try on their hardware, they somehow start a fire.1
Am I bad? I charged a client for an SSL Certificate and installation, but just used LetsEncrypt instead, cost me fuck all.6
Created Linux instalation flashdrive on my notebook like thousand times before. Simple dd if=img of=/dev/sdb . Tried installing system from it but somehow doesn't work. And the it hit me. I have both magmetic drive and SSD in my laptop! So insted of flashdrive, I have bootable beging of my SSD where my encrypted lvm used to be :-( Luckilly I lost just EFI, boot, swap, rootfs, few git repositories and ccache.6
Installing a software on Linux can be such a pain sometimes....
This software needs a dependency, which needs another, which in turn needs another......
I mean if you already know you need it, go install it yourself. Why do I need to do everything manually?
And no. A simple apt get install won't work. You need a third party dependency which adds the package to the repository and some other stuff before you can do anything.
Why? Just why?3
I'm starting a clean Sierra installation and I've been using Sublime in my old installations but I wanted to asked you coding monkeys:
Atom, Sublime or Brackets?30
I've installed Ubuntu a million times before, but never had it hang here for 20 minutes, anyone else ever experienced it? :-/
Don't want to hard reset the PC while the USB is being used12
Wanted to move Visual Studio to a different hard drive
So I uninstalled it and went to install it anew, only to find out the installation location was set to read only.
I then found out I had to run the installer with the arguments /uninstall and /force to force a complete uninstall, thus allowing me to change the installation directory... What the fuck Microsoft?1
Just finished coding the first parts of my soon to be obviously awesome CMS ,😁 been thinking about it for over a year, been designing it for about a month, did the database schema a week ago and this week I finally got to coding the UI kit, the database migrations and the foundation for the system 😄 and right now, I actually finished the installation page, much waow
Check out the most amazing video of the installation page here lol
I love you and hate you at the same time. If something breaks with the boot sequence, usually it involves using a live USB to fix the existing installation, which I directly did once I got a kernel panic.
Checked out the hard disk uuids (I was partitioning), tried chrooting but couldn't get further. Then, I booted again into the faulty Linux installation and the frikkin page said I had to run fsck on my harddrive manually. Did that in the handy provided terminal and guess what, it boots again.
Linux, you can't help people who assume issues, like me. I still like you though3
Rant about my stupidity.
For a full day I've been trying to get the desktop environment on my fresh Arch installation working(on a spare laptop).
Guess what? I was running startx instead of startxfce4 and wondering why isn't xfce4 starting.
Guess I have more such stupid acts to be encountered.3
Yesterday, microsoft showed me once again, what it means to "obey".
I tried to install Microsoft SQL Server 2012 on a virtual machine with OS Windows7.
The installation-center asked me to choose an installation-folder for SQL-Server.
No matter what, for any folder i had chosen for the installation, the setup replied with the errormessage "The installation-folder is invalid"
So i considered asking our platform-services team, whether they gave me administrative rights for the vm.
They did. I had full access to the components of my vm.
After a few days i finally recognized, that i had picked a wrong iso for the installation of sql server.
Instead of sql server 2012 + Service Pack 3, i picked sql server 2012 ServicePack 3.
So after all, Microsoft tried to tell me by showing the message "The installation-folder is invalid", that the setup weren't able to find an installation of Microsoft SQL Server 2012.
So re-installed linux on my PC while I had the time only to discover that my windows installation had installed it's boot manager onto the linux installs hard drive... So of course it all got deleted and I can't access my windows partition because I can't get linux to create a bootable windows drive...
Today is just fucking great isn't it .-.11
A colegue of mine replaced his Windows installation for Ubuntu. Then he replaced the Ubuntu wallpaper for the Windows 10 wallpaper and installed a dock with the Snow Leopard theme.
Since there's ricers in the car scene, I think he's a desktop ricer.5
That moment when you sit to code and start learning a new thing, but the installation and prerequisites take up all of your time. *Sighs*1
So i tried installing elementary on my friend's computer
I keep ending up with this error : 'in it ram fs : cannot find a medium with a live file system'
This error can be replicated on one other computer but works without the error on another one.
I'm using a UEFI boot on all of them
What I've tried :
1. Switching USB ports
2. Burning the image using Rufus, lily USB
3.secure boot on/off
4. Converted any dynamic partitions to basic
5. Converted MBR to GPT
6. Disabled Intel PTT
I've tried Ubuntu as well, same results34
I was 4 years old and it was 1998. A shiny new computer, with plastic covers so it would not get dusty.
It came with Windows 95 and I damaged that installation of Windows after installing a game made for an incompatible version of the C++ runtime. Good times.1
After the base installation of arch linux..I am trying to install the display server,Nvidia driver.and i3 wm...but getting errors..
Shall I install Display server xorg after or before the installation of Nvidia drivers??
What is the proper way to configure xorg and Nvidia?
When I give the startx command it is showing black screen....
Fucking cocksucker, I shut my macbook down at home, go to college and BAM the FUCKING THING WONT START ANYMORE
LIKE WTF IT HAS BEEN 15 MINUTES BETWEEN WORKING FINE AND NOT WORKING AT ALL FUCKING PIECE OF UTTER SHIT
Now I probably have to reinstall and all that fucking hell,
(ps its en encrypted drive installation so I can log in see the progress bar and then it shuts down)11
Fuck Arch wifi handling!!! Why can’t you fucking just have the needed software in the base package!!! Because when you take YOU FUCKING USB INSTALLATION SOMEWHERE THERE’S NO ETHERNET!!! You’re FUCKED!!! What’s the point! Now I need to boot from my lubuntu usb dual boot install, FUCKING INSTALL the Arch iso, VirtualBox and then the needed wifi packages!! Fuck!5
i bought a new laptopand i can't fucking install ubuntu on it
and my supervisor asked me to show him ubuntu running on this laptop
before anyone points out that i m a noob
I have already installed ubuntu, arch mint on my pc
here are the specs:
lenovo model 320 ideapad
ubuntu 18.04, 16.04 17.04
and the ubuntu fucking hangs as soon as i get to the gui screen
found something with nomodeset, going to use that
I can't install arch cause I need to show ubuntu running on this laptop to him10
Got tired of Windows 10 giving me BSODs
Tried fixing it (previous rant)
Decided to get rid of it
Purged Windows 10 along with Mint for good
Booted Solus (It's awesome)
Installation failed - Input/Output error(5)
Maybe ISO got corrupted
Downloaded ISO again (painfully slowly)
Booted to Login screen
Incorrect username/password (shit)
Tried again x times (absolutely correct username and password, I'm sure)
Booted from the same USB again
Format and Install (again)
Installation failed - Input/Output error(5)
I'm not sure what's going wrong here..
My laptop is soulless right now..9
I want to switch from Windows to KDE Neon. Do you have some tips? Because it's my first Linux installation and i don't want to make something wrong :)6
I've made the mistake of reinstalling windows with a ~6 months old installation media.
It's been 12 fucking hours of windows updates. FFS2
I fucked up my MySQL installation...
Whenever I really feel like programming in my free time (which became really rare), I fuck something up and spend half of the night fixing it. Once it’s fixed I’m done, don’t wanna do anything anymore..
I should just start programming and set up the infrastructure afterwards.. at least I would get to do some programming then..9
Uninstalling Visual Studio is a mess. It'll leave behind hundreds of silly component, which is funny because the main reason I started the process was to clean up a possibly corrupt installation. It also left behind a Docker tool component, which I can't uninstall cause that installer needs VS itself :D1
So it began with i finally decided to change to linux ubuntu.
An error screen pops up if i remove the usb now. But if i didnt and press restart, the install screen reappears again prompting me to either try ubuntu, or install.
What am i doing wrong then? Thanks a lott.19
Bash for Windows 10? Not for me, it seems. Installation never finishes and disabling the and re-enabling the Linux sub-system with far excessive restarts after doesn't help either. Git bash will have to do.4
doing it finally
(i have windows 7 and xUbuntu installed on the designated machine already)14
Just started an android O development course on Udemy and decided to use my Arch installation (surprisingly Linux was the easiest one to set up) even though the course said Mac or windows only..
But holy fuck does android studio fly on Linux, it's so fast compared to being run on the same machine under windows...4
Stallman: Software should be free.
Sanders: College should be free.
Microsoft: 40GB should be free before installation will continue.
How do you customise your arch installation ?
Desktop environment and stuff ..
Give me the whole list3
So I'm thinking about trying arch linux finally :) I've always heard the installation process was complex but I'm wondering if it's gotten easier or maybe it's just all hype? I'm very used to ubuntu and debian based installations. What are your guys thoughts on this?6
If your the installation instructions for your software are to clone the repo and build from source then fuck you!
I want to use the thing not tinker with it. Make it available on apt or something10
Nah I'll quickly fix my arch installation, can't take that long...
- my brain at 12pm (about half an hour ago)
Plottwist: I didn't fuck up the whole system and it's booting again.
I didn't expect that myself
After trying 4 different versions of installation, applying patch, digging through obscure sites, down the rabbit hole, finally
ERROR at 97%
(; _ ;)
Back-up plan : Forget everything... buy land somewhere in the in the mountain and be a farmer.2
So LUA injector to Payday 2 requires on Linux certain library (libcurl3). So you know, sudo apt install libcurl3 and there you go!
You would think.
Apparently while you do that, the installation of libcurl3, it completely nukes your Steam installation... For some reason.
Can some please explain me, what the hell just happened? Please?1
Ahhhhh, no better feeling than a fresh windows installation... Now to hate myself and reinstall Visual Studio and Android Studio...
*Sits in the corner and cries*
Just installed Linux again after the installation finished because I somehow got a typo in the password I set in the beginningof the installation.
It was just quicker than to try hacking around this problem.3
I have spent days trying to solve a windows 10 installation problem. I'm so pissed off at my own stupidity.
All I had to do was unplug my main hardrive with Ubuntu installed on it because of course windows doesn't play nice with other operating systems is being installed.
I only need you for games windows 10! Why be so fucking difficult!17
As if I had nothing better to not nor deadlines I went on a mission to tweek my i3-wm installation with resulted in lightdm not starting... FML7
I should've read about installing ubuntu, now I'm facing grub-efi-amd4-signed GRUB Installation failed error9
My computer just take fire. Hmm i think he dislike the new installation of windows :/
Well, be happy to have some other stuff for work !1
This is the worst possible thing that can happen, when you setup a new computer.
I live for about a decade on ubuntu. I got an invite for a LAN where games are being played that I cannot run with wine or are not ported to linux.
Fine I get an old harddrive and setup a fresh Windows 7. I have a little update script that takes care of updating and restarting.
BUT I CAN NOT DO ANY UPDATES.
As you can see in the picture the original Windows 7 installation disc that was part of my computer did not carry the matching NIC drivers.
A friend of mine gave me a spare WiFi dongle. That did not bring its drivers on the USB dongle but on disc that he lost.
WHY?! HOW?! This is not plug and play. This is a part that SHOULD be plug and play.
After I got an other WiFi dongle that was plug and play, I could finally download the right drivers.
Why can the Windows 7 disc that was part of the computer setup not contain the right drivers, but a ubuntu 12.04 live disc can?!
what the fk how hard can it be to have a working version of the software on the master/ ros-version branch? Why is this thing always broken?! HOW?!
Had to update today unfortunately, and man, I have been "installing" this shit for over 3 hours now. Use the .install they said. It will be fast they said. Ye sure, my ass. The Dependencies are broken and incomplete as always and the tutorial is not up to date. Big suprise. I get it, it's a lot of work to keep these things up to date. But please if they are this broken and incomplete why are they released in the first place.
And then they wonder why I don't manage to do my work on time. Yeah, cause I'm stuck debugging this shit <.<'1
Man, i hate these Windows 10 updates. Can't even boot up system properly anymore. Over an hour and half wasted with failed update installation EVERY SINGLE TIME!!
Happening 3rd time just today!
Why tf you trying to install update if its gonna fail?!!
I wish I could stop getting Windows 10 updates forever. Guys, Any ideas to block updates other than switching to linux?..6
Had to do a WordPress installation move from development to production server. Exported database, changed hostname, imported database, settings missing.
Guess who's manually applied all settings and backed up the > 5GB old site.
I really hate hoster that don't allow SSH tunneling for SQL access 😩
(First rant. Just felt like I might put my struggles into a rant and it might just feel better.)4
Legend says there is an Atom installation where the "Open empty editor at start" option actually works.
I don't know why but it never worked for me. First the editor always opened a specific file I hadn't edited for days, now it always restores the previous session and opens TWO fucking tabs with the welcome page.
Back to Vim.7
To everyone on here thinking about switching to Linux: don't be afraid. I dual-booted it with windows when I was 12 without any help, without any problems occurring during the installation whatsoever. As long as you know what you're doing and you do research, you'll be fine.4
If only phone manufacturers will give us something like system installation disk/mini usb or smthing... Then there will be no stress about anything! You can root, flash, do everything you want and if something goes in wrong way, just reinstall your android with no problem like u did many times with your PC os. Dreams5
Some relatives visited me last night. As soon their son realized I'm a coder, he started asking me silly questions e.g. he had installed some silly hitman game and asked me to tell him reason for it wasn't working on his system.
WTF man? How could I tell you the reason without even looking at the installation or error.
Why the fuck is the default installation of Python on Ubuntu 18.04 incomplete and missing *default* modules? And WHYYY are there no fucking instructions anywhere on how to fix this??
I was hoping to be able to sit with my laptop and do stuff instead of in the dark corner by my desktop computer. It seems like I can never get things to work on my laptop, and I feel like I've either got the crappiest installation of the OS or that I'm just so stupid that no one else ever had my issues. Or, if I do find people who had the same issues, not a single one of the solutions that worked for literally everyone else ever works for me. 😐8
My dumbfuck hosting fucked up the mysqlnd installation and it is missing the pdo api extension. All my queries are returning strings for every field. It's easter so no support available. I've planned to deploy the new site in this weekend. Now i have to manually typecast after every query because i've used === everywhere. This will be a long day...6
Windows after a fresh installation be like
Preparing, seting things up for you, do you want to use cortana, do you want to give us all your data, windows is all yours, configuring, Setting up, almost there
Thanks for letting me wait in order to set things up to rip off my data and then announcing that the computer i bought is all mine
My experience with Fedora:
1. Copy to thumb drive
2. Find out the thumb drive wasn't good enough
3.copied to another thumb drive
6.Shit forgot to partition my NTFS drives
7.Back to Windows to do it
8.back to install again
9.Start installation, setup partitioning
10. Didnt notice that my EFI partition wasn't detected
11.Fedora tries to install its bootloader in God knows what place
12.bootloader install fail
14. Missing operating system
15. Spend my whole fucking night repairing the boot partition and the problem was a fuckin missing BOOT flag
16. No grub
17.spent another decade trying to fix it
18. Give up and get some sleep
Probably Fedora will have to wait for another day, tiring experience7
So I installed a Linux distro as my primary operating system for my laptop, I needed to use my windows installation... But idiot me did a full hard drive erase installation and not a dual boot didn't I...
*Sigh* now to download a windows 10 ISO!8
So, since a few months, my school has a new shiny building,
but we are still not using it because the computers are not correctly set up.
Some idiot installed the wrong drivers for the Windows installation
and that's the reason some classes are still located in containers without a computer...3
less than a week into my new job I'm already writing shell scripts and python scripts to automate my tasks
- it's a windows machine
- Cannot install anything without admin privileges
- powershell is locked, cannot run scripts
- can't even change my wallpaper without privilages
thankfully git bash for windows runs without installation
python also runs without installation4
Installed Ubuntu 18.04. Loved the minimal installation feature. Reduces installation time and the time you spend removing everything unnecessary
I'm proof that deadlines motivate. Ruined the grub2 installation on my Ubuntu install and told myself I'd have it fixed in an hour or less. It's fixed now with 3 minutes to go 😅1
After yesterday update, my Windows 10 installation literally died, and I’m stuck on spinning cursor.5
Last night i sat down at 6pm to free up some disk space on /boot, because i didnt properly size it months ago on first installation.
5:20am i close my laptop with a fresh install, and no more WinBlows.
Didnt set out to do it, but Im not mad that it happened.
Right....I don’t think that’s how Ubuntu is supposed look -.-
The iso must be corrupted, the stick is fine15
Anaconda. Quite fitting a name to something that fucks up python environments so thoroughly. Ironic too, given that it was meant to simplify. Anaconda doesn't give a shit about the python that came with the distro. And all packages installed with pip are only visible to anacondas python. Not a single note of caution during installation. Or a best practices guide for the newbie. Just chaos. Utter chaos. The price of being a noob had been paid.5
Can one of you help me?
I wanted to do a minimal Fedora install on my laptop, but the WiFi isn't working. The wifi-card uses the ath10k_PCI driver.
It works perfectly fine in the live-iso and the installer, but not in the minimal installation.6
Fuck you windows, haven't touched my PC in 2 months and I boot it first had to restore basic functions after that a Windows update came that broke everything in Windows, now I'm learning PowerShell to fix my broken windows and to install updates in the hope I get a working installation back.
Visual studio enterprise pooped out on me today. Company says I need to install professional instead...
Well there goes 5 hours of my day9
Windows diagnostic tool wants to search for a solution to my desktop's network problems on the internet :/
Plus, I discovered my Windows installation created 40+ ethernet connections on its' own behalf... Time to wipe Windows.. :/
Luckily I use Linux on my Notebook...2
Ask someone for their Java windows service and installation instructions for testing our integration. They reply with info on how to install Java.
Bought fucking nvidia gpu to test speed of some fucking machine learning models that generate speech.
6 hours wasted already for installing fucking dependencies
cuda, fucking tensorflow gpu, bezel and other shit
Fucking resetting password to download deb with cudnn,
really ??????? fucking emails are not delivered to my fucking mailbox
After mass click of send email and multiple account ban and unban I figured out I should login to nvidia website and then allow access to fucking developer every time I want to log in there - fuck shit
Uninstalling everything now looking for fucking compatible versions between software.
10 years in this business still fucking installation of dependencies is most difficult part
Fucking corporate business and their shitty installation instructions to fuck up peoples lives and switch them to the cloud.
Same was with fucking kubernetes
Fucking software dependency hell
It’s worse then ever before.
I hate those microfucktards!!!!
I have a brand new usb flash with 125GB capacity and ~ 115GiB.
I wanted to install a bootable Windows 10 installation onto the flash and downloaded the fucking recommended windows 10 install tool from the ms fuckpage.
And? This dipshit of a "tool" created the windows installation and partitioned my flash into two partition's. One is 30GB and the other....
90 GB that is not assigned!!!! Fuck you.
I mean....why the hell does this stupid tool formats my flash to fat 32? And why there is no option to use exfat? I'd don't get it.7
Lesson of the day: First read installation tutorials for software on linux completely before doimg esch step without knowing the rest...
Praise the Jesus/Allah/Buddha/Flying Spaghetti Monster, the newest Visual Studio Code version doesn't require reset after extension installation!2
Failed installing Arch Linux....tried installing it three times
But at every boot what I get is Black screen with the cursor (underscore) blinking on it
I followed their official installation guide
Do anyone know how to resolve this problem?15
Finally managed to install nvidia driver on my ubuntu laptop after a couple of fucked up resulting in me formatting the ubuntu partition. Im sure there are solutions which didnt require reinstalling the OS but I gave up trying after wasting about hours tinkering with the installation, and restarting into blank screen.
Now that I can work and play dota on ubuntu, Im ready to get rid of the windows 10 dualboot2
I have never understood people ranting about how Linux is incompatible with their machines. Back in 2006 what ever machine I had tried Linux on was working better with it. More than that all the drivers were working out of the box and the only problem that could possibly happen was with graphics.
FF 10 years. I am using MacBook for some time now and I did no installation of Linux for couple of years now except on bare metal servers. And have just bought my sister a new hp envy. Nothing fucking works. Not even wifi. Installation is hanging and I do not fucking know why! Her previous computer had problems with wifi. If wifi is turned on you could not turn the fucking pc off. It would fucking freeze.
Well fuck my life :(9
Spreading happiness by introducing linux in my friend's laptop . This was the same guy , who told that linux could never match Windows and stuff . but within minutes of installation , he is shocked by the power and ease of the command line .
P.S. I am not mentioning the distro here .. as it will attract a lot of hatred . !!!6
FUCK EMMC AND 32BIT UEFI WITH A BIG RUSTY POLE.
Wow that helped actually...
Now then... If anyone has any suggestions on how to actually boot Ubuntu after installation on Asus x205ta I will give them my first born son.
Lets just copy some files from here to there..
On the other hand, lets not..
I'm still getting 'access denied' when I'm trying to copy a W7 OS installation partition file by file across a network.
Why are these things never as simple as in the adverts...4
eclipse is just shit. Had to help a friend with his eclipse installation, crashed every hour or so. Frickin shit. Never had such problems with IntelliJ. This whole program is shit. Not the first time such weird stuff is happening with eclipse4
So I am doing a rework of my OS installation and since Mint KDE is running out of support, i thought i would switch it. Any reccomendations? So far im thinking about ubuntu Budgie.4
How difficult is it to write an installation script?! Suddenly have dozens of computers with just a few MB free space...Reason: 150 GB tmp-files (which turns out to be log files), containing "Can't replace file, file in use" a gazillion times until the disk got full!1
Well i fucking hate my life right now.. I had a running arch linux installation with i3 as my windows manager.. dont need a desktop environment.. i don't know what i've done but it doesnt boot anymore..
Guess i will reinstall it8
Oh this looks like an interesting 10 min Nodejs tutorial on utube!
*30 minutes of fighting modules installation*2
Stuck with arch base installation. Just after completion of base installation, Internet Blackout is imposed by government due to communal tension.
I deleted my is just to play with arch installation. Now I can't even listen music and watch movies stored on my harddisk because of arch base installation.2
Ubuntu installation freezing every single time I try to install it. Trying since yesterday. Dammit Ubuntu!19
Just Installed visual studio 2017 haven't used it yet but am already impressed by the installation time for the first time I have visual studio install at less than 30 minutes considering I was installing the whole xamarin package too.
I'm fucking tired of seeing 'No Operating System found' while installing Linux! All because of RAID/SATA issues that exist due to the presence of both an HDD and an SSD. I would've have smashed my laptop but it's a $1000 one. :/1
Trying to figure out Material Custom Themes. Goddamn who ever came up with this was either a genius or a donkey. I cannot get a grasp of it. I need a custom palette import this in a custom theme and then make sure this theme is included in my Angular installation.
Why god why?2
2X Tickets solved by rebooting the server after .Net Installation.
Client Default answer to: "Did you turn it off and on again?"
Always silence until you force the reboot after an server check and analysis.2
Honestly, Fuck Laravel, Fuck the installation process, Fuck the project setup process and fuck the cmd commands that have to be implemented with it.........But looks like ill be sticking with laravel for now20
Damn some stupid moves can literally fuck you up.
I just moved to linux distros around 4 to 5 months back. And I have installed and reinstalled it many times. So I thought it's simple and cool af.
So last time when i installed Ubuntu 18.04 i had it installed it on SSD and mounted my home from HDD. I felt super awesome. It worked perfectoo! 😘
And now I had some issues with dual booting so i planned to resort it and make it clean.
So during the installation process there's a part where you gotta select where to installation path and all. Its been a long time since I did a clean installation and TBH i forgot the / and /home . So what i did I put / on my previously maintained home instead of putting it on the SSD.
Now I am FUCKED!
Guys never ever make this mistake. It's baaad. Reaaal bad!2
When Ubuntu 15.10 upgrade process fucks your nvidia drivers install halfway through the upgrade. You then have to force restart your PC, potentially corrupting you drive, and continue the installation process in the command line before being able to fix the display drivers.1
Lessons While Installing Linux #37: Trying to install GRUB on a GPT drive while in non-UEFI mode doesn't work.2
I might have just fucked my linux installation. Deleted the windows partition, resized the linux over the free space, can no longer boot into ubuntu.
This might have been a stupid idea - I don't know.
Can someone educate me as to why this happened and also how should I've done it?3
Got shit copying in the background whilst copying files, installation decides to just restart explorer.exe, because you know, it just can. So the copy cancels half way through, so i delete all the half copied shit and accidently highlight the Program Files folder too... and I Shift+DEL 😠 FML
Since 2 days I try to get opencv for python installed on my notebook but it doesn't work. On my desktop machine at work everything is fine but on my notebook it makes me cry - this sucks1
Just got my hands on a fresh installation of windows XP... With IE6. I guess it's time to have fun with the caniuse stats :)1
Nothing like when I created an offline installation of visual studio. That's >20GB saved for each time I've had to start everything a fresh.
Why would a mouse settings installation automatically restart your PC? Fuck you sideways with a sledgehammer, Logitech. No prior warning, just restart..1
Finally got a use case for gitea, the installation was amazingly simple and love how fast and lightweight on resources it is.1
I have to finish animation but Krita keeps fucking up. The installation fucked up and I have no strenght to do it again!2
Email-server: Installation directly on the server vs docker-containers. Does anyone here have positive/negative experiences with any of them?11
A client bought an extremely expensive piece of software that is so "high level enterprise" that when you do a dry-run of the installation it actually fills the database with application data and the real installation fails afterwards because of this. BadumTsssss
I am going to cry now m(
So I created an installation and configuration tool for our team to avoid copying exe's around and messing up versions/config.
That was at the beginning of this year.
Guess what they do half a year later?
Yes, copying everything manually and later blaming each other when we have to fix almost every installation at the customers.
Windows should ask you how computer literate you are upon its installation. That way, advanced users wouldn't need to see beginner level advice and would get easier access to 'complicated' stuff, without needing to go through countless permissions. Inspired by @coder67's post.2
Fuck these braindead people who don't include OOB remote installation option or at least a virtual keyboard into installation CDs. What if I don't have one/the one I have is broken? (and no, I can't just go out and buy a new one, okay?)10
I spent the whole day of yesterday trying to install the windows anniversary update after a clean Windows installation. Every time i tried to update it would go through 30% completion and then... BSOD, claiming that i didnt had a boot device. WUT? Anyway, after 5h of research and no success, i created a bootable usb installer and tried to install Windows 10 Education (which is my license). After the 1st restart... Error: Windows could not complete the installation. OH GOD WHY ME? After another hour i figured it out. Somehow i needed to install the version Windows Home and after the installation update to Student. DAMN WHAT A DAY...2
I am currently using Gnome on Debian,
for about 3 years and i am thinking to switch my distribution, please suggest me one
my priorities are stability and productivity.
Originally i was thinking to switch to Arch Linux because of the AUR, but the installation ...13
partition managing is kinda a chore with xubuntu
chore meaning i just resorted to deleting the partition with my apps and stuff installed and installed windows 7 instead
Another day another unsuccessfull Nvidia driver installation on Linux. FFS GET YOUR SHIT TOGETHER NVIDIA.3
Ugh, tomorrow I have to work again again after 5 weeks vacation so I figured let's update my antergos installation on my work laptop so I can jump right into the current issues. Turns out something broke my installation 5 weeks ago to the point where I can't login into my DE. So here I am attempting to fix it before tomorrow starts, 3 hours in :l
I both love and hate Linux at the same time6
So my sister's friend was asking me how to install Steam on her laptop, so I said yes thinking it's just a common .exe installation... But I quickly learned that she uses Fedora... I have no experience in Fedora. Anyone know the best way to install it? She has a 64-bit system.8
When I was 11, my uncle called me genius and I should study computers after I went online to HP's official website (using a 56k modem connection) to download the drivers for the printer we had at hone, since somebody lost the cd with the installation that came with the printer. Today, I am 25 yo software developer earning 25k+ a year :) #thanksuncle
So I'm chucking a spare second SSD into my PC and going to do a Linux installation, I'm going to go Ubuntu only because I have previous experience with it :-P
Should I just install 16.04 or wait till 17.10?4
Trying to install elementaryOS alongside Windows 10 in my Acer laptop. Installation went smoothly but now it is not letting me switch to elementaryOS.
Come on Windows 10 (or maybe Acer), just let me use Linux already.
It's not like I am cheating on you! (or maybe I am)8
Discourse is a overly complicated software, could have been so much simpler without losing any of its feature. Installation sucks, development sucks and ofcourse their choice of using Rails sucks big time. Hoping Flarum will fix the issue of pathetic forum softwares.
Node isn't setup correctly after installation. 😤😩
Help me troubleshoot this issue so that I can move forward in my lesson please!
I just wanna learn dammit.13
So my Windows installation is getting the creators update. Let's see if it even installs. Stuck on here for about half hour.4
You guys think Windows 10 data tracking is bad? Server 2016 is worse. When I try and shut the machine down (it's a VM and I want to change config) it actually asks me the reason for the shutdown. I understand servers are intended to always be up but geez that's overkill. And this is only within my first hour of installation and use.4
Got a change request today. The client had written two lines.
The first line(specs): we would another installation type something like "blabla"(an existing installation type).
The second line just ask for an time estimate...
They same client have been known to use mspaint as the visual aid of how they want things to look, and it looks ugly.
My reply for the CR: The time needed to complete the task is 5 hours + whatever amount of hours I find suitable.
I was trying to build this AWESOME react native application.
1. install npm and react native [3 min]
- oh wait install yarn [about 10 min]
- how about expo 1 min
- and install expo on my phone [ 1min]
2. create a react native app
umm install pod [10 min]
run npm ... figure failures and stuff [20 min]
it's been almost 1 hour now and I forgot what I was building.2
i wonder if there's a frontend for vanilla arch installation
it dosent feel the same with antergos sometimes
I did install antergos as base, but i never got to partiton like you guys have - mainly because i loose patience when the partitioning dosen't go smoothly. It hasn't. not even in virtualbox.
please pray for me
I want to intall a bare bones Linux set up with i3-wm. I'm looking at a Base antergos installation and continue to configure from there. Do you thing that this is a good place to start after using i3-wm on Ubuntu or would you recommend another distribution?
To add to it, the laptop ideally uses Nvidia Optimus4
BLOODY FILTER KEYS. Suddenly my keyboard stopped working altogether. Why? Because Windows decided to filter my keyboard out, thanks to some accessibility setting. I had unchecked all the boxes in the accessibility settings, like I always do on a fresh Windows installation - BUT one that I forgot. I've always thought these accessibilty options are a FREAKING NUISANCE! Just because there are a few handicapped people who cannot use a keyboard normally, we all have to suffer :( These settings should be part of the installation like "Enable accessibilty settings by default" instead of something you must remember to disable afterwards.
Normal Ppl: What could be Worst Than a Breakup? :(
Me: Having your Openstack Installation getting Fucked Up at its last leg.1
(continuation of my previous post, the one that started with me talking about hackintoshing my laptop).
So after a while of playing around with installers, I got Server 2008. Standard installation problems. I decided to search for a Windows 7 ISO on my external drive, but it started acting up. Switching up the cables - nothing. So I switched to another laptop - there I could use it properly, somehow. I made a search, and found a bunch of files - I took the best ISO with Win7 I could find and used Rufus to put it on my pendrive. I booted into the installation nicely. Then, I went into the startup repair. It started searching for systems, and then a message popped up telling me that I can repair some startup. I restarted, and guess what?
I got into the system picker, where I could finally access Windows 7.
I am so relieved.

me: this installation needs swap space on server
ops: we don't do swap space on AWS
me: ಠ_ಠ OK, what other solution can you provide me?
ops: here, use this real (bare metal) server we have
me: will it have all the same access and installed packages I had used on the AWS server?
ops: no, you need to create tickets for that
Wow. Windows is the silliest OS ever. The repair disc does not find my Windows Installation. I only have one HDD.
