Dad: What do you think about this laptop?
*looking at specs... Raising eyes. Intel i3 first gen., 2 GB RAM*
Me: Nice calculator10
We got a sever with two Intel Xeon E5520 processors and each processor has 8 cores and 2.27GHz.
Also the server has 36Gb of internal memory.
What do we do with it? We play Solitair 😎19
https://git.kernel.org/…/ke…/... sure some of you are working on the patches already, if you are then lets connect cause, I am an ardent researcher for the same as of now.
So here it goes:
As soon as kernel page table isolation(KPTI) bug will be out of embargo, Whatsapp and FB will be flooded with over-night kernel "shikhuritee" experts who will share shitty advices non-stop.
1. The bug under embargo is a side channel attack, which exploits the fact that Intel chips come with speculative execution without proper isolation between user pages and kernel pages. Therefore, with careful scheduling and timing attack will reveal some information from kernel pages, while the code is running in user mode.
In easy terms, if you have a VPS, another person with VPS on same physical server may read memory being used by your VPS, which will result in unwanted data leakage. To make the matter worse, a malicious JS from innocent looking webpage might be (might be, because JS does not provide language constructs for such fine grained control; atleast none that I know as of now) able to read kernel pages, and pawn you real hard, real bad.
2. The bug comes from too much reliance on Tomasulo's algorithm for out-of-order instruction scheduling. It is not yet clear whether the bug can be fixed with a microcode update (and if not, Intel has to fix this in silicon itself). As far as I can dig, there is nothing that hints that this bug is fixable in microcode, which makes the matter much worse. Also according to my understanding a microcode update will be too trivial to fix this kind of a hardware bug.
3. A software-only remedy is possible, and that is being implemented by all major OSs (including our lovely Linux) in kernel space. The patch forces Translation Lookaside Buffer to flush if a context switch happens during a syscall (this is what I understand as of now). The benchmarks are suggesting that slowdown will be somewhere between 5%(best case)-30%(worst case).
4. Regarding point 3, syscalls don't matter much. Only thing that matters is how many times syscalls are called. For example, if you are using read() or write() on 8MB buffers, you won't have too much slowdown; but if you are calling same syscalls once per byte, a heavy performance penalty is guaranteed. All processes are which are I/O heavy are going to suffer (hostings and databases are two common examples).
5. The patch can be disabled in Linux by passing argument to kernel during boot; however it is not advised for pretty much obvious reasons.
6. For gamers: this is not going to affect games (because those are not I/O heavy)
Meltdown: "Meltdown" targeted on desktop chips can read kernel memory from L1D cache, Intel is only affected with this variant. Works on only Intel.
Spectre: Spectre is a hardware vulnerability with implementations of branch prediction that affects modern microprocessors with speculative execution, by allowing malicious processes access to the contents of other programs mapped memory. Works on all chips including Intel/ARM/AMD.
For updates refer the kernel tree: https://git.kernel.org/…/ke…/...

A fucking wasp bit me and now (after heating up the affected area thoroughly) I'm keeping it cool like a true nerd.9
The Linux kernel team working on the Intel bug considered naming their fix:
Forcefully Unmap Complete Kernel With Interrupt Trampolines, aka FUCKWIT.
Reinstalled my dedicated server yesterday.
Then you suddenly get errors saying that KVM isn't found.
Searching my ass off for hours because I damn well enabled Intel virtualization in the bios!
Double checked after a few hours.
THE FUCKER TURNED ITSELF OFF OR SOMETHING FOR THE SECOND TIME?! WELL, THERE GOES A FEW FUCKING HOURS 😡23
A group of Security researchers has officially fucked hardware-level Intel botnet officially branded as "Intel Management Engine" they did so by gathering it all the autism they were able to get from StackOverflow mods... though they officially call it a Buffer Overflow.
On Wednesday, in a presentation at Black Hat Europe, Positive Technologies security researchers Mark Ermolov and Maxim Goryachy plan to explain the firmware flaws they found in Intel Management Engine 11, along with a warning that vendor patches for the vulnerability may not be enough.
Two weeks ago, the pair received thanks from Intel for working with the company to disclose the bugs responsibility. At the time, Chipzilla published 10 vulnerability notices affecting its Management Engine (ME), Server Platform Services (SPS), and Trusted Execution Engine (TXE).
The Intel Management Engine, which resides in the Platform Controller Hub, is a coprocessor that powers the company's vPro administrative features across a variety of chip families. It has its own OS, MINIX 3, a Unix-like operating system that runs at a level below the kernel of the device's main operating system.
It's a computer designed to monitor your computer. In that position, it has access to most of the processes and data on the main CPU. For admins, it can be useful for managing fleets of PCs; it's equally appealing to hackers for what Positive Technologies has dubbed "God mode."
The flaws cited by Intel could let an attacker run arbitrary code on affected hardware that wouldn't be visible to the user or the main operating system. Fears of such an attack led Chipzilla to implement an off switch, to comply with the NSA-developed IT security program called HAP.
But having identified this switch earlier this year, Ermolov and Goryachy contend it fails to protect against the bugs identified in three of the ten disclosures: CVE-2017-5705, CVE-2017-5706, and CVE-2017-5707.
The duo say they found a locally exploitable stack buffer overflow that allows the execution of unsigned code on any device with Intel ME 11, even if the device is turned off or protected by security software.

Client: "we need a piece of software to have our son be able to talk again"
Me: "what can your son do physically?"
Client: "He can only grip something"
Me: "well, I suppose that is possible by using Intel ACAT, some synthesizer and some switches"
Client: "Never heard of ACAT, probably some small program that nobody else heard of"
Me: "It was used by a great man called Stephen Hawking. If it worked for him, it should work for your son"
Client: "Who is Stephen Hawking?"
Me: *urge to put client in wheelchair intensifies*14
I work for my highschool's IT department (the money I earn goes directly towards my tuition), here is a picture of my workstation. It's a Lenovo ThinkCentre, it has an Intel i5-6500 vPro, 4GB of RAM and runs Debian 9.4.17
I know we agreed to stop the Windows 10 rants, but this fucker just crapped itself 20-ish minutes before a live video production. Had to run to the other building and steal a computer from the folks in the studio because this one would no longer boot.8
Everyone's ranting about Intel being gay with design so I'll just drop a scratchpad I made during Computer programming class5
I just looked at CPU sales this year. Now damn.
AMD 2:1 Intel
AMD 69% and intel 31%
Now my classmates will finally shut the fuck up about Intel beign the best deal.
We all know AMD is best deal for the buck.
Some people are just Intel fan boys. Some are AMD fan boys. Sure i like AMD because they put everything open-source. But that doesnt change that AMD has sold 1/3 more CPUs then intel while Intel actually released new CPUs 2 months ago and AMD didnt and people still buy more AMD CPUs.
AMD good fucking job you did there. Congrats.
Lets destroy Intel totally with Ryzen 3.
What a time to be alive !107

Monday morning, went to the local grocery store to get myself some croissants and 2 bottles of wine.
Cashier: "Already at it in the morning, you sure about that?"
Me: "Long story short, I've got a Wi-Fi driver from Intel to debug and rewrite, and it's a fucking piece of shit.. can't go at it without hitting or preferably exceeding the Ballmer Peak... Also I'm awake since yesterday evening already."
Why even ask? Yeah I'm a fucking alcoholic, and guess why that is.. stupid nontechnical fucks, certified enganeers like that motherfucker at Intel who wrote this pile of garbage called ipw2200, and technology that can't be arsed to work properly on its own unless I build the fucking thing myself, just to name a few reasons.
You know what, fucking piece of shit from Intel, whoever it is? How about I let you choke on my dick while fucking hanging you with a sharp metal wire that's carrying 2kVAC from a microwave transformer, just to see whether I'd nut first, or you either choke, get electrocuted, or get your fucking throat slit first. Certificates aren't an excuse for committing this fucking pile of shit and calling it a fucking product!!
Now, it's time to dive into this giant stinking fucking turd I guess.. first glass of wine to get myself prepared for the shitstorm that's a giant 20k LoC C file with barely any comments, to look what the fuck causes this fucking pile of shit to disconnect and ask for WPA credentials after a while, despite having them stored.. and not reconnect after that, because why the fuck would you?!16
Remember last week's build I randomly popped in between the rant feed?

My laptop was not able to boot unless plugged in because of malfunctionning built-in Intel Anti theft technology.
Turns out its deprecated and there is a software available to remove it
So I installed windows to be able to run it but it was not working no matter what.. Turns out it was also deprecated and not supported anymore, so there is no way to remove the faulty anti theft system..
I sent my laptop to ASUS so they could find a way to remove the software and I got the reply "we will have to change the motherboard, it will cost $600"
No way I am paying this much for something that was supposed to be a software problem so I asked them to cancel and send it back
Now I got it back and its not even booting anymore and theres a few screws missing
Friend asked me to create server on raspberry i said ok continue he gived me 1 TB usb hard drive he said "This is where you will create partition for each host and run emulated computer on it so no clients can see each other but it will emulate intel core i7" then i stoped him "are you serious emulate i7 on arm processor are you idiot its imposible started to laught and walked away" next week he asked to create app that run iOS on android well fuck why ???😭😭😭😭4
I realized this week that my CPU is almost 12 years old!
It's an AMD FX-8150 8core @3.6 (recently overclocked to 4ghz). It's still a good chip for my needs, but eep. I had no idea I bought it that long ago.
I really want to replace it, but that would require a new mobo, too. which I suppose wouldn't be a bad thing...
AMD was comparable to (and occasionally better than) Intel before, but now? Ever since they bought ATI, they've just spiraled: virtually everything they've produced has lagged behind.
However: the Ryzen seems to break this trend, so maybe there's hope yet?13
I attended a data science meetup recently. There were many suits walking around the corridors because of some startup night taking place at the same time.
After some time a guy appeared infront of me, telling me he was afraid at first that this was a meetup for suits only. Until he saw all the dev and rock stickers on my notebook. He was reliefed that there was some nerd at least.
He asked what I was doing so I told him about my startup about optimization of heat generation plants jada jada. I asked him back.
He replied, "Well, I'm also part of some small startup. Among the things we develop processors and stuff. It's called Intel."
Well dude, that was nicely played. I had a lot of fun that evening.6
Fucking cloud providers always trying to steal your shit and spy on your things, fucking prying eyes. That's why i've decided to go back hosting my own private cloud from home. Running on some very energy efficient shit: dual core intel atom cpu (so slow that it can't fucking run windows normally), 16gb of ram, because why the fuck not? and 1tb 2.5"hdd, along with unlimited data - 100/100 Mbit/s internet connection with a server response time less than 95ms just to backup my shitty Iphone selfies and cat pics, host some very important files and regularly back up my contacts. This shit runs CentOS, Nginx, https, bitch! This platform is more trustworthy than your shitty dropbox or whatever other shit they offer you. I can choose whether i back-up my shit from local network or over internetz, Costing me no more than 25€ annually(just to keep the machine on 24/7/365).14
Good bye Intel, and your AMT, secure boot, and other assorted items engineered to restrict user freedom, hello PowerPC. Today, working on firmware flash for my new Radeon card to get it working in my powermac G5 quad.

what the last windows update did to me:
- BROKE the fucking SPEAKERS so i have NO SOUND even WITH HEADPHONES. the only pair that work is a bluetooth one that i used before
- RESET ALL OF MY BIOS SETTINGS. this includes intel haxm so now the FUCKING AVD WON'T WORK.
- BROKE my FINGERPRINT SENSOR, so now i cant use the side of my pinky to login.
FUCK YOU MICROSOFT.

Friends, hear the good news, somebody figured out how to turn off Intel ME. Rejoice!
I fucking hate how intel reps say “they don’t participate in lowering security or shipping back doored or compromised systems, but yet ME is designed such that any vulnerability in it equals total gang busters for gaining access. It’s introducing your best friend to a serial killer, handing the killer a un, and offering him a million dollars to shoot your friend, and then when he does, saying you had nothing to do with it because it was his choice. Go fuck yourselves Intel, I’m already never buying a cpu or nic from you as long as I shall live, the least you can do is not lie to us.11

Mint can't find correct driver for Intel NUC.
The download page for linux Intel graphic driver update tool project was closed.
Asked what's happened on Ubuntu stack exchange, got immediately closed, because of off topic: mint is not Ubuntu...🤦♂️
My solution is to uninstall mint, and install Ubuntu...
Still the same driver issue, but at least I could ask...
God damn it.26

My father-in-law wants me to buy a new computer for him. He's currently using an old Acer minitower running more malware than real software on shitty Windows Vista. He only uses Email (Outlook 2003), Facebook and Youtube. I'm gonna get him a MSI Cubi Intel N3700/4GB/120GB SSD with Linux Mint and problem solved. No more malware/virus calls from him. I'm installing Mint on Vbox right now and I'm loving it from second 0.16
I really feel like buying some cheap intel atom laptop, slapping on a kali and going on a hacking trip around the city right now.27
Lenovo, you dumb fuck cunts.
How the fuck did you think it might be okay to ship a laptop with a BROKEN FUCKING WLAN DRIVER??????
This piece of shit doesn't even have RJ45 anymore.
And also who shit in your empty cavities where your brains should be when you thought it was a good thing to disable booting from anything but the main windows partition? My Mint installer stick works on any and everything I have ever tried him with except for this.3
Been cursing at the Android emulator for weeks for being slow, laggy and crap. Have been doing most of the testing in the iOS simulator instead.
Found out yesterday that Intel HAXM had been uninstalled. I installed it, and now it's buttery smooooth 😌

AMD's doing great recently...
Nvidia, there we go, fucking Nvidia... And fuck Intel as well while we're at it...
Because they're professional shareholder cock suckers, that's why.4
Lots of fun open source stuff, but I had a lot of fun working on a survey taking m&m dispenser. The goal was to encourage students to answer survey questions that would help the faculty get a better idea of what the students found most valuable (different things they wanted to learn, classes they found useless, etc.). So me and another student built this :) Its a node server running on an Intel Galileo, which served up an admin and survey interface using React. When a student answered a survey question, a servo would turn a gear, which interfaced with a rack and pinion that had two little pits in it. When it would slide under the jar, two m&ms would fill the pits, then the rack and pinion would push them out. Then we had a webcam hooked up to the end of it that would compare the colors of the m&ms to see if they were the same. If they were the same, the student would get more m&ms. The gear pieces were 3D printed.
We could never get the webcam stuff to work right with the Galileo because OpenCV (the computer vision library we were using to interact with the webcam) could not be built/compiled on such a specific version of Linux. Later, I was able to do it with a RaspberryPi, but never got it reintegrated.5

Yet another Intel vulnerability. Who_would_have_thought.png.
There's just way too many choices when it comes to buying a new pc. And then there is Intel. Granted they produce great chips. But the whole cpu market is under their control. They are releasing new chipsets and sockets for breakfast.
We need stronger competitors6
Found this on Quora today :
Programming isn't sexy at all. In a club, try picking up a girl by telling her your heroic tale of saving an entire department by rewriting a recursive function to take advantage of a feature in the new server Intel chips to scale up their online orders.
Then tell me how it goes.5
New toy. However, I am at a dilemma. Do I keep its aesthetic nice and clean, or do I make it awesome with stickers. Also. Do I take off the intel and nvidia stickers to clean it up further. Decisions decisions.36

What a new years start..
"Kernel memory leaking Intel processor design flaw forces Linux, Windows redesign"
"Crucially, these updates to both Linux and Windows will incur a performance hit on Intel products. The effects are still being benchmarked, however we're looking at a ballpark figure of five to 30 per cent slow down"
"The fix is to separate the kernel's memory completely from user processes using what's called Kernel Page Table Isolation, or KPTI. At one point, Forcefully Unmap Complete Kernel With Interrupt Trampolines, aka FUCKWIT, was mulled by the Linux kernel team, giving you an idea of how annoying this has been for the developers."
>How can this security hole be abused?
"At worst, the hole could be abused by programs and logged-in users to read the contents of the kernel's memory."
Rant on adaptive brightness....
So basically on my laptop there is this "function" that if the screen is mostly black it lowers the brightness, while if it's white makes it higher....
This means, if you are on devrant or discord or visual studio or any dark UI and then switch to something like google you will get freaking blinded by the max brightness, and when you'll switch back to the first program due to the lower brightness it won't look good and also it will be annoying to the eyes, and you CAN'T make it brighter because that's already the max brightness
WHO THE F*CK THOUGHT IT WAS GOING TO BE A GOOD IDEA
If you really want to do something like this at least make it opposite: white screen low brightness, black screen higher brightness.
Well, i don't like it, maybe someone likes it, so can i disable it ?
I have it disabled both in power saving settings and in the intel control panel but it's still active, the only way to fix it is set a registry key i found online and then reboot, but guess what, after one or two weeks it reverts back to enabled :/3
Sometimes I wish I could work in an anechoic chamber, alone.
Big open offices can be a fucking pain in the butthole.
Phone ringing here, stupid chatter there, clattering keys and noisy Intel™ stock coolers.
Even 9 hours with over ear headphones, blasting a fresh breeze of technical death metal, can't cover up those distacting noisy cunts.
How do you cope with that?12
Probably a little different shitty teacher!
Had a course in basic computer architecture and the teacher was way to over qualified to have that course. This is a guy who presents his research to Nvidia and Intel but is forced to teach a intro level course...
The result? He was completely unmotivated and unprepared for the lectures and was of no help on the assignments. Fortunately we had a awesome teaching assistant who saved the entire course for me and my friends. Seriously, kudos to that guy!1
When my company moved to the big city we all got new equipment. I selected a ThinkPad and two 24" Dell monitors. Most got themselves a MacBook pro and a 27" Samsung monitor.
Once the new great arrived I started my journey to free the poor ThinkPad from the spy-software that is windows and install Arch.
Everything went smooth until I connected both monitors via MST to the single mini Displayport. Screens flickered, flashed or started dark. Even the display inside the ThinkPad. After half a day of trying to get MST to work with the Nvidia/Intel hybrid graphic inside my ThinkPad I installed Windows on the second ssd and got some actual work done.
The next day I finally managed a static xconf that had all three displays in just the right configuration and I started to work on Linux.
The story would end here if Arch wasn't Arch and I had not installed updates when I did.
After about 6 month of happy working on Linux Paradise I updated Arch since it was overdue (two weeks without). Shit hit the fan. Cinnamon's display manager didn't like my xconf and crashed during startup. Sadly from previous experience I knew that this was the only dm that would work somewhat stable with my hardware comp. I tried to debug, created multiple issues on the various GitHub repos and invested another week into it before dropping Linux again.
I never doubted my knowledge of Linux more than during the times I tried to get MST working with Nvidia/Intel graphics on my ThinkPad.
Recently I switched to a 27" one monitor setup and I'm back on Arch without any trouble because MST isn't in the mix this time.
I guess the story had a happy end after all3
Random fact #1
AMD (Advanced Micro Devices) was producing Intel 8080 clones (AMD Am9080) before developing own CPUs. Originally they were produced without Intel license. This clone was developed basing on pictures of Intel 8080 itself and pictures of logic diagrams. These processors were much cheaper than the original model. Later AMD and Intel came up with agreement and the Am9080 was fully licensed making AMD official second party vendor.
And yeah, few years later and we got a war between two of those giants. Remember when in mid 2000s AMD almost beat the Intel marketshare?
Bonus Fact: there is AMD logo on Ferrari Formula 1 cars since 2002 (look at the front wing)6

Got a Radeon RX 570 to complete my light gaming and rendering setup. This is easily the most powerful GPU I have ever owned, super hyped to try out all my games on this now. Works great after it crashed under Linux a few times for god knows what reasons but hey, not disappointed at all so far.
All AMD setup here (Ryzen + Radeon), feels good to be back on AMD after a long Intel/Nvidia stint.10
Fuck you Intel.
Fucking admit that you're Hardware has a problem!
"Intel and other technology companies have been made aware of new security research describing software analysis methods that, when used for malicious purposes, have the potential to improperly gather sensitive data from computing devices that are operating as designed. Intel believes these exploits do not have the potential to corrupt, modify or delete data"
With Meltdown one process can fucking read everything that is in memory. Every password and every other sensible bit. Of course you can't change sensible data directly. You have to use the sensible data you gathered... Big fucking difference you dumb shits.
Meltown occurs because of hardware implemented speculative execution.
The solution is to fucking separate kernel- and user-adress space.
And you're saying that your hardware works how it should.
Shame on you.
I'm not saying that I don't tolerate mistakes like this. Shit happens.
But not having the balls to admit that it is because of the hardware makes me fucking angry.6
I have breathed new life into this little thing.

So i had issues always with lagging GNOME on amd ryzen raven ridge. Just now i looked at grub config and what in the world is that ?
Who the fuck told you to do so ?
Installed amd-ucode and uninstalled intel shit. And what the hell ?
Never have i seen such a smooth GNOME animations. And i mean never. This is just amazing. IDK why it used intel ucode but to all people here. running raven ridge or just any AMD cpu SWITCH TO AMD-UCODE.6
I'm an advocate of free software, debian specifically, hell my business runs on it!

NewLifeNewHope update No.2 / Day 5
My Server Is finally opened and i installed 2x8 TB WDC Harddrives and SATA 128 SSD. I know this server is freaking garbage, but i got this PC for free, and have somewhat good-ish upgrade path, so heres the spec :
-Gigabyte H110m-S2 LGA1151
-8GB DDR4 single channel RAM
-128 GB SSD
-TP-Link 1000mbps NIC
so the plan is to make this server as the Main Repository -- yes no offsite backup plan for now -- and also i want to make this server as an Email Server and for hosting my company's website. I've already asked for static IP from my ISP and will take effect tommorow.
I need help for choosing the Operating System (i like centOS) for my server. and to setting this Server to work like what i planned but i don't know where to start, Any help and/or References will be great !14
I see a lot of people with stickers on their laptops and I was wondering... anyone else removes every sticker from theirs? Even the original ones like intel or nvidia etc? I always found that a laptop looks "cleaner" without any stickers at all...6
They all want to make games like this, and minimum requirements are:
Processor: Intel Core i5 3470 @ 3.2GHZ (4 CPUs) / AMD X8 FX-8350 @ 4GHZ (8 CPUs)

So Manjaro provides this handy script/program mhwd that supposedly would enable the non free blob Nvidia driver except it doesn't work cause it uses bumblebee and it's saying it can't find the clearly installed fucking Nvidia driver.
Bashing my head against a wall is more fucking productive then getting my cum stain of laptop to work properly.
"Just disable the intel graphics in bios"
I would except my old shitty Acer bios piece of fucking crap can't even after booting Windows for usb hdd and flashing BIOS.
GUESS WHAT LINUX COMMUNITY THAT'S WHY NOBODY WANTS TO FREAKING USE LINUX FOR GAMING.
I fucking love Linux but I gave up gaming for it.
I'll start joining red team from now on instead of trying to use your broken shit.22
The guy Intel hired to come up with instruction mnemonics must be just letting his cat walk over the keyboard every time he needs a new idea.
cvttps2dq? sounds good!
The new amd threadripper is faster than any core i7 ever made including current gen. Intel is going down!16
So I finally bought a laptop! Dell Inspiron 3580, specs:
Intel i5 8265
8GB RAM expanded to 16 manually
256GB NVMe PCIe M.2 ssd as system drive (ofc)
Added Crucial 1TB SATA ssd for good measure
Fucked up the stock Ubuntu 18.04 with libinput-gestures I think, reinstalled Ubuntu 18.10, got Steam, bought Half Life bundle, installing it right now.
Also VSCode, CodeBlocks, IntelliJ and PyCharm are on this beast and I'm ready to rock.
So this is my desk.. really organized and clean as you can see.
Let's start from the left.
That naked motherboard you see is my enterprise grade server running Debian on an intel i3 something with 4GB of ram and a 500gb hdd.
Moving on to the right you can see some flutes (Notice the pink one).
Then there is my beloved laptop running Manjaro Linux with VS code open on a random script.
Following you'll see my BEAST tower pc with lovely RGB keyboard and mouse and another random project open.
And I guess that is it. Enjoy1
Gdpr thing aside...
Does anybody read the new policy...
I just did for 2 apps (intel driver software and 9ga.. You know it)...
On the things that they collected on the side without you knowing include:
Device memory, language, battery level, timezone, unique device identifiers, compass, accelorometer and microphone... Even service provider and signal strength
Website you visit, how you use your computer(vague too vague) and computing environment.
Did anybody knew for sure before this that their apps are listening to them? That they just made a profile of you with all the data?
With all this they dont even need your ip they already know who you are and what you do on a daily basis...
There are 20 more but it will be waaay too much to write about. These 2 are way worse since 9ga doesnt use microphone for anything... And why a driver reads what websites i am going to?4
Intel or AMD?: Intel
nVidia or AMD?: nVidia
xBox or PlayStation?: PlayStation
HTML or C++: C++
Apple or Samsung?: OnePlus!!!!!!16
Was using six years old laptop with first gen Intel core i3 to train a neural net, placed the laptop on soft bed, training begins, thermal shutdown after 30-40 iterations(30 minutes).F***.
Now starting again :'|3
I was on a interview two weeks ago, got a mail today that I had been selected to the third round (government intel stuff)
I got clean sheet from the police and the "Security Service" in the country.
And now, in the mail. The recruiter wanted me to give contacts to my current boss. I am one of 4 and I dont want to sacrifice the trust that my boss have on me.
What the '''' should I do?2
Since everyone is showing off their setups here is mine:
OS: Windows (for gaming only), Kubuntu (Main Distro), Linux Mint (Sidechick Distro :D)
HDD: I have 3 with about 3.5 Terabyte alltogether
8 GB of RAM
AMD FX 6300 processor
ASUS R7 370 4GB STRIX graphics card
Yeah its an alright PC :D The next one I build will be a beast though. For sure.
Oh and I have a HP Laptop with 8GB of RAM and some Intel CPU. Its alright for coding when I am not at home.12
Intel is dying right now tbh. I hope the can get back on their feet but as of right now, chaos. They have had multiple ceo changes within 1 year and their current is a horrible leader. They have been really wasteful with their money (like buying McAfee...) And the inly reason they are leading in the CPU market, Tick Tock, is failing. It used to be Process - Architecture. Now intel has announced they are not changing the process for 8th gen, currently it's Process - Architecture - Optimize - Optimize - Optimize. Which is not good. It has been leaked that Intel is currently just hoping for AMD Ryzen to fail, let's face it, Ryzen seems really promising and might be the comeback AMD needs.
TLDR; Intel is a one trick pony and their one trick is failing. They have been really wasteful with their money and their current hope is that Ryzen fails.
I have an Intel CPU in my system and i find them to be better than AMD, but the tables might turn.8
Hmmm since im doing crazy stuff with tech.
Why the fuck no just overclock my tablet GPU right (Intel HD 4000). That will be fun if it goes to plan and even if its able to overclock it.1
Things to get done by wk200:
- Finish B.Sc.
- Do Intership at Intel
- Get M.Sc. Scholarship from Stanford.
I know it's a bit big, but you have reach for the stars.2
I don't know if I'm crazy or what but I decided to install Metro LL after reading the trilogy OK that would be OK but im installing it on Linux tablet with Intel HD haha. This is going to be fun.
So I tried installing arch today. Spent all day trying to fix grub to be able to boot arch,Ubuntu and windows along with Intel microcode working on both arch and Ubuntu. But alas , I could not succeed and I cannot boot into Ubuntu now. I am going to reinstall Ubuntu tomorrow and leave arch for sometime later.4
So... has anyone yet made a comment about now exHead AMD Chief of GPU division Raja Koduri joining Intel?
Now this is awkward after I made this OC image not so long ago :/
Also in other news can we comment that Systemd has pretty much took over most linux distros? is this the new NSA backdoor? (before someone points out is open source, have anyone been able to properly audit it?)5
Google, Microsoft, IBM, Qualcomm, Intel formed one team. They betrayed to the world. They are ruling the world.
I am not joking..
Then I woke up.
Damn it :-(2
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
Well, I wanna specialize in low-level software as I get older. Everyone is telling me to go out and learn a processor architecture. I'm willing to be patient, so I do what people recommend to me and I download the Intel x86_64 manual. I was excited... UNTIL I REALIZED THE MANUAL WAS 4474 PAGES LONG! Like, how am I supposed to jump into assembly, machine language, and low-level programing with a beginner's task like that? I cannot find ANY resources online to simplify the transition, and college sure ain't gonna teach me anytime soon.10
As a guy with a Intel 6800K I now really feel robbed of my money by Intel.
For over 10 years they knew of the heavy design flaw and put it through.
The ironic thing is, that every country will set up a penalty for Intel, but the Customers with the CPU's wont even see a buck.
It sucks that I have up to 30% less CPU Power after next weeks patch.
I will banish Intel now forever!! You should never come again in my Business!!!
Even my newly ordered Tablet with a Intel chip will suck d*ck now...9
Debian + i3wm running on the WSL just fine :D
OS: Debian GNU/Linux 9.5 (stretch) on Windows 10 x86_64
Uptime: 10 seconds
Shell: bash 4.4.12
CPU: Intel i5-3570 (4) @ 3.4GHz
Memory: 4025MB / 8158MB7
Holy shit! so after my last news report https://devrant.com/rants/1063342/... , I also shared the news in my site where there is a guy that works in a Washington ISP and also offer mail servers and such for the locals... fun and joke time has ended my friends, any SysAdmins here regarding this want to comment on this topic?13
I have a really old Toshiba NB200-10P notebook with Intel Atom CPU and 2 gigs of RAM and 32 bit architecture... It was made for Windows XP, and now it barely runs Windows 7... So I'd like to give new life to this old piece of hardware with Linux (for basic tasks like Office, and maybe coding with Notepad++)...
I really like Manjaro, but after they ditched 32 bit support, the Manjaro-32 community project seems a bit unstable...
So, could you devs please recommend some reliable - and somewhat good-and-simple-looking - Linux distros?23
Can anyone help me choose an antivirus for Windows ? If it is free it would be great !!
I am a full time linux lover, but I have to set up a windows pc for my parents, possibly win 7 on Intel NUC with atom processor.
The requirement is just ms office and similar applications.18
TL;DR: intel stripped the hosted network function from the drivers for my wifi chip. Older versions can still so it
Every month I travel by bandbus to neighbouring countries for a show.
This usually takes 7+ hours.
So i have my laptop with me and if my brother is along as well, we game in the bus.
Using a cable for internet connection isnt handy, since we sit on opposite sides of the bus. So i looked up if I can use a hosted wifi network for this.
We both checked out our drivers and both said no hosted network support.
And some posts on the internet said that customer support told them that the chip can't do it
But thats weird. My laptop is high end. So I searched a little only to find out that I can do a hosted wifi network if I DOWNGRADE my drivers.....
Fuck you intel. Fuck you hard for stripping that function from the drivers1
I just feel that the Intel stuff going now has been in the past year.
Maybe the hackers found it, selled about 5 times in the deep web. Then one reported to the officials, and they are releasing a statement in 2018.
tldr Hackers want devs to go mad from the start of 2018.
So I just bought an Intel Optane SSD for my PC, and then this came up...
"Intel® Optane™ Arbeitsspeicher unterstützt keine auf PCIe-Festplatten installierten Systeme"
or in English:
"Intel® Optane™ RAM doesnt support Systems installed on PCIe-Harddrives"
LIKE WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU INTEL! I JUST BOUGHT THIS SHIT AND NOW YOU FUCKING TELL ME IT DOESNT FUCKING WORK BECAUSE I HAVE A FUCKING M.2 SSD WITH WINDOWS ON IT? WHATS WRONG WITH YOU ASSHOLES! FUCK THIS!14
Oh, crikey: Windows 10 "Inaccessible boot device". Good old "bootrec /fixboot" didn't work, and any claims that "automatic repair" does anything useful is apparently bollocks.
So for the first time ever, I had to use a restore point to revert the system to where it was before Xamarin was installed. The prime suspect for this cock-up is Intel HAXM, since I don't belive anything else in Xamarin possesses the power to accomplish a boot loop.
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
Intel, wtf kind of drugs is your stupid site on?
Trying to make an account, the password requirement says "at least one special character".
Ok, no problem.
"Password format is invalid"
Wut? Hmm, maybe it doesn't like that one. Let's try one from their suggested ones.
"Password format is invalid"
WTF? The fuck is your problem?!
*reloads the page, tries again*
"Password format is invalid"
ARE YOU FUCKING RETARDED?
*adds the special at the end of the password instead of the beginning*
And then we wonder why bugs like Meltdown and Spectre come up. These guys can't even do fucking password validation properly.
And I've just lost 30 minutes because of this shit.
Upscaling a prod database which was running on an 8 year old Dell desktop used as server. It had about 2MB of RAM and an Intel Core 2 processor...
This was the day I've learned a lot about querying the database as efficient as humanly possible.3
Holy fuck AMD really have made a comeback... NVIDIA is admitting they lost (how I interpret this, no flame) and then we have Intel literally running their already fragmented CPU range into a ditch of mismatched specs and just brute forcing higher cord counts on an almost out of date manufacturing process...
And now AMD is also releasing new mobile chipsets with integrated Vega graphics (on the zen based chips) that are already outperforming the closest Intel competitor on thermal and raw performance...
What the fuck!!!
AMD might actually become Intel and NVIDIA rolled into one the way they are going in my eyes...16
When you your computers graphics card keeps crashing the computer.
I get 7 seconds before it crashes. About 5 are used up from typing in password and loading...
The next 2 seconds involve me trying to type in device into start menu... Next I will type in manager.
I am at the anger level where I am saying audibly "I will destroy you" "Arch is next" "Screw you Intel" "You have failed this city"
Real anger rising! 😠😡👈✂🗡🔪🔪🔫🔫🏹⛏🛢🛠🍺🍸🍹☠☡☢📵❌10
Need a advice.
Have been a Windows user since many years. But at college I do use ubuntu and am familiar with it. So now I have developed interest in using Linux due to its simplicity and ease of use.
But for some tasks I still need Windows. So thinking to Dual boot my laptop. Have heard dual boot harms the laptop, makes it slow, blah blah.
So Is it advisable to Dualboot on a same machine?
intel core i5 7th gen; 8 gb ram, 1 tb HDD,. 2gb AMD R5.10
Have defective supermicro server, but the ipmi is working and could tell me what's going on.
Only problem is, I don't have access to it since the last owner didn't provide it to me.
So I thought let's try metasploit.
Setup local network with a second server, connect to local* address.
"Welcome to intel integrated BMC web console"
What? Its a Supermicro, did the owner reflash the ipmi? What the heck.
Msf: scan adress ....
ipmi found bla bla bla.
Msf: zero cipher scan.
... Voulnerable to zero cipher.
Was pretty happy but the doubt kept creeping in.
On my WS that isn't connected to the ipmi of my server, I go to that ip address.
"Welcome to intel BMC ......"
What are the odds that some fucker has his ipmi open to the public on that exact same address that my board was configured to.
Well, actually pretty high I guess.
That didn't go as planned.
Apparently posting rigs is a thing right now...
I'm running dual Xeon (16 cores) with 64gb RAM, Intel 480gb PCIe SSD, one GTX 1080, and 3 GTX 970's.
My new machine that just arrived is a quad Xeon with 40 cores. And... I might be tripling up on it soon. 😁😬
Oh and I just got 20tbs of storage!6
Rant on me myself.
After being a professional coder (ie having a bachelor degree) for 11 years now, I finally have a decent and reasonable backup.
I use borg to backup to my raid 1, which is local, in my corridor near the ceiling. I use a Intel NUC with two external USB3 HDDs attatched. As I already had data on them, I went for a btrfs raid 1.
The second level of my backup solution is my brother. It's 50km to his flat. He's got a banana pi with my third HDD attached. I connect to his pi via VPN. The VPN is done via an AVM Fritz! Box. No ads, I just like those boxes (modem and router).
The backup is encrypted, of course.
Now, after ten years, I finally got a decent backup solution. Wow. This feels great! 😎
about to install linux for the first time!
its an hp chromebook with 4gb ram that I can take around. its got an intel celeron n3something and maybe I can get my three essays done while android studio starts.
I'm going to install zorin os, maybe kali.8
Error: Can't find Python executable "C:\Users\*****\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python36-32\python.EXE", you can set the PYTHON env variable.
hmmm what if I go to that location

Steven Hawking dies one of the words greatest minds but suffering one of the worlds worst diseases died yesterday... around half a day later, release the code for his ACAT software on github ffs. https://github.com/intel/acat/...5
Not a good year for Intel, is it? First the two Spectre variants and Meltdown, now the AMT vulnerability.
/Hugs his AMD systems while unplugging the Intel ones.7
Intel CPU + Vega GPU on the same package is the best innovation in years.
We may finally have a MacBook Pro that is not only worthy of the name, but may be the first MacBook with GPU that won’t suffer a common defect failure requiring the threat of a class action before they announce an extended support period.1
Guys help something has plagued my mind, I was thinking about building a new PC and swapping over to AMD from Intel and NVIDIA... But after Mac as a daily laptop I'm thinking about spending the equal amount on a MacBook Pro and living the dock life.... What have I become?!
(But still never touching iOS, fuck that shit, android for life!)3
Is it me or the spectrum patches in 4.19 didnt make any impact on AMD ? The performance is actually better compared to 4.18. GNOME runs smooth as butter. This is fucking impressive. And in the meantime Intel users say that its fucking terrible since they get about 20% drop in performance because those patches.2
Thinking of turning my 6 year old intel atom processor netbook into sth useful other than just dumping it.
Any good suggestions to reuse?10
The CPU of my tablet is so underpowered. Intel needs to ditch the Atom line and just use the core i series.4
Oh, me? I am so excited about all the computing power that's gonna be stolen from people who had updated their Intel CPUs last month.
I dunno what they're up to but I'm sure it's very exciting. I'm lost between Skynet and a one world government cryptocurrency mining they will use the power for.
What do you think?3
worst dev tech ever for me was intel x86 assembler. I developed on motorola 68k before and i loved it. x86 was horror.1
Question / Suggestions.
CPU : AMD or Intel ?
GPU : AMD or Nvidia ?
I want to build a High-end PC (Desktop).19
My desk/room setup
An Asus A555LF connected to an Acer LCD Monitor and a Samsung Smart TV connected wirelessly(Intel Wi-di) dual boots to Ubuntu 15.04 and Windows 8.1.
A friend of me said that intel Pentium and i3 is the same, that all laptops with intel`s logo have the same processor, you just have to view the info. of yours...2
Ended up with 16.04 and 18.04 ubuntu in dual boot. (see last rant).
Fixed graphics issues on 18.04. The fix envolved setting stuff in grub. Ok.
Now we apparently need 16.04 again and can kich the 18.04.
np. Let me just boot my 16.04
oh look who has graphics issues now!
It boiled down to the grub settings. so Depending on if I need 18.04 or 16.04 I need to fiddle with grub. great.
And now we don't neet 18.04 at all. So I tried to do something not in the last minute once, and it backfired completly. Wasted 5h on this shit this week. Fk this.2
Hey fellow devRanters,
I'm sure some of you have read about the newest vulnerabilities in Intels Management Engine (ME). I feel like ME and similar "features" are unacceptable backdoors into our systems. Unfortunately Intel and AMD do not offer their customers the option to acquire CPUs that lack these backdoors and make disabling them rather impossible 😒
Thus my question: Do you guys know of any 64-bit "open-source" CPU on the market that is production-ready and suitable for high-traffic web applications? Please note that I don't consider FPGAs to be viable options, since I don't trust Xilinx and Altera either.15
I gave in...

So a client just asked me if a could come up with a solution for him to keep in contact with his elderly parents. He wants a TV screen with webcam where he can Skype to and then it auto accepts the video call. When there is no Skype conversation he wants it to display photos from a remote Dropbox like location. Any tips?
I am thinking maybe an android box with USB webcam. Or perhaps a Intel nuc?10
read the terms and conditions point 5.
Like... really... wtf Intel?? xD2
Working with the Intel Edison. My god that thing sucked. So the thing ships with this tiny custom yocto Linux with almost no common packages the default repositories. Getting basic tools like Git and Vim were a task on its own, let alone getting the latest version of Node running. Another company Emutex made a Debian distro for it called Ubilinux but they never planned support or updates and officially took it down a few months ago. Both the Yocto build and the Debian build shipped with the 3.10 Linux kernel and upgrading it without breaking it was nearly impossible because they monkey patched device support into it rather than making a patcher. The team at Linux responsible for the Edison released 3 broken versions of the MRAA library in a row, crippling my code for weeks before I realized what they had done. The hardware hasn't received a refresh since it came out and only 1.4 GB of the 4 GB on the device is actually available.
It may be fine for hobby projects but please don't ever try to prototype a commercial product on it. Fuck the Edison and fuck Intel2
The shitshow between /r/intel and /r/amd on reddit is so fanboyistic.
I hope amd works out all the discrepancies soon,the r7 1700 looks like a great processor for workstations.
Khmm Intel... A paper from 1995 describing speculative execution as :"Prefetching may fetch otherwise inaccesible instructions in Virtual 8086 mode." which makes Intel know the 'recent' exploits knows for just a shy 23 years. Why didn't they fix it? Who know.
Just gave up 10GB++ on my Mac for MS Office. Survived with Drive for the first 4 weeks of uni until yesterday, a lecturer bombarded us with announcements in MS Word format. Did I just wake up in 2005??
(p.s. the same lecturer used to work for Intel
p.p.s. there is a separate announcement section with automatic email blast)3
I have a some Questions for you
I want to "Convert" my Prebuild PC into a Normal case...
My currency build has
A GTX 1060
An M.2 SSD (Idk the Brand)
A 2TB Hard Drive
A Intel Core I7 6700 (non K)
16 GB SO-DIMM DDR4 RAM.
And I Just want to put everything into an standard case (Idk which one Right now)
And also want to Upgrade my CPU to a I7 7700K
So I need,
And new RAM
(Budget around 500-800CHF)
(Its low but I think its manageable)
Thank you for your suggestions in your comments!9
Are you fucking kidding me?
Just read about Intel ME (I'm trying to secure my computer). Why the holy fuck does Intel need something that powerful? FUCK YOU, CORPORATE BASTARDS IN SUITS THAT RESEMBLE MATRIX AGENTS.
Does anyone have any tips or updates on this? The article I read was from Jan 2016...5
Hey everyone, need some help/opinions, I quite literally have almost no time anymore for alot of thing specially try share alot of news here (not the Intel mess, I reported some of that stuff before it exploded) I share most of that news in my site though, but I really wanted to ask people here that may work for hostings companies if they know about the retardation of Nvidia in their change of Terms of Services for their GPU usage (https://legionfront.me/posts/1936 ) and also want to know if users here are if they are looking for dedicated servers, mainly GPU servers for their works and what are you look for (specs and such) or rather where1
My favorite feature of Kaby Lake is that you need it to watch 4k netflix 😊 not for hardware limitations, but because of marketing 👍4
Ok, so I got everything running on Ubuntu 17.10. switched to i3 because holy mother of God is never have to resize a window again!
Switched to using the Von editor mode in IntelliJ because dear lord is it faster!
I love all of it. The only problem? Instead of the 6-10 hours of battery I got in Windows, I get MAX 2 hours in Ubuntu because it's always using the Nvidia card and switching to the integrated Intel causes an instant log out after the log in. (Tried everything already, nothing works)
Still, I love it.3
Me: Ok I'm not going to bother upgrading my PC, just going to use it and buy a whole new system later on...
PC: Yo' bro, remember when you had no clue at what you were doing and you didn't buy an 80 Plus certified PSU and used stock intel cooler? Yeah man you're going to need to replace both of these things, that'll be $280!
Of course this fucking happens, knew I should have waited till I actually knew what I was doing with PC hardware!11
Regarding processors, 2019 is going to be interesting :
Arm vs Intel vs AMD
just heard about an LG fridge with built-in Windows 10Tab:
"The fridge has an Intel processor and 2GB RAM. It will not replace your Desktop-PC!"
//you don't say2
So is everyone prepared for the up to 30% performance hit on DB servers due to Spectre and Meltdown? Going to be a very interesting year....
Yet three other flaws...
Now it's pretty clear that Intel, either kept their backdoors pretty much knowingly and patch them when they find a better way to access data(yes I see you the functioning of ME) or it's like in the race of faster clock, took the safety of the data for granted.
Anyways, one word, Assholes. The management of Intel
Intel drivers suck!
For months since I've gotten this work loaner PC it has been randomly crashing. Lately I noticed it is only when watching videos or listening to music. Googled the issue and found one other person with a similar issue who uninstalled the drivers. Now the thing runs fine! F.lux isn't the happiest but it still works.7
Anyone hear about EMIB from Intel? It seems like it might be a game changer for getting workstation power into Ultrabook form factors. They worked with a team at AMD to engineer it, and even made it sound like they're using it to combine core i processors with AMD graphics.
I ask because there has apparently been news about it since August but I've only just heard about it today.
I have a Surface 3 for home dev stuff. I wanted to get back into C++ for graphic/GPU programming. However it uses an Intel Graphics 5000 chipset so I can't do CUDA and the Intel Media Server can't upgrade the graphics driver because it's a Surface.
What should I do? I would rather not build a system just to play.5
It's not every day that the solution to a long-standing mild frustration with a server is to blacklist the kernel module for video drivers.
5 years of never having an accessible console on that box was not the "headless" I had in mind all this time. I was finally able to solve the black screen by forcefully ignoring Intel's broken video drivers. Thanks Intel.2
Intel i7 or AMD Ryzen 5... This is the question...
I need a new laptop... NOW!
Where can I found the one that I want? 😁🤣16
Any laptop suggestions? My budget is around £400, preferably AMD but Intel is acceptable
RAM isn't an issue as I have a spare 4GB ram stick
It's mainly just for programming, so a fancy GPU isn't important16
Created an artificial neural network and left it to train on my old machine with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor because they say that with time you become wiser and I want my AI to be the wisest.
Woo time for a Chromebook rant against Samsung!
So they just 'revised' the Chromebook plus (Currently using v1 to write this) and I was intrigued because they ditched the Samsung made ARM chips for an intel CPU.... Buuuuuuuuuut... It's a fucking celeron... Of all fucking things to put in a half thousand dollar laptop, at least an m3 would be useful. Then I find out they are ditching the full metal body, it's heavier, thicker, same 3GB of RAM, ditching the 3:2 aspect ratio (Fucking why?!) and the 'upgraded' keyboard doesn't even have back lighting...
Ugh, makes me want a pixel book more, double the price and a million times the performance and quality -.-5
Fuckin McAfee tried installing it and asks me for a restart. After that the application fails to open up a process is clearly running in the background however nothing to show.
Tried the have you turned it off and on again procedure atleast 5 times but nothing.
Finally tried contacting McAfee support. Asks me to give them remote access via their application. The link stayed there like a dummy. Clicking it opened nothing. After the chat got disconnected 3 times.
Then when i try reinstalling it it says we are in the middle of an installation and we'll open that up. It opens a fuckin take a tour box and ypu can fuckin click anywhere and everywhere on the window but it stays there sitting, waiting, watching
Fuckin intel and fuckin McAfee get your shit together2
I am thinking about setting up a dual boot (Windows 10 & Mac Os Sierra) on my windows pc for video editing.
I have a Gtx 1070 and an i7 7820HK... I am going to install both OSs on a PciE Ssd.
Not going to overclock it ofc.
Has anyone done that with similar hardware?15
I need advice. I want to build new pc and i can get i7-4770k for 100 €, but one thing that turns me down about that is older socket. Should i go for it ? Or should i get something with new architecture ?7
People going crazy over the new Intel CPU exploit. I'm just sipping coffee looking at my AMD CPU that's never done me wrong 🙌15
After some time, planning to install Linux again for personal use and some dev work at home. My current pc is getting too slow sometimes and it irritates me a lot.
My current pc 2gb RAM, Dual core Intel, 32 bit.
Main criteria, os should be fast, I can compromise on GUI, should be stable, should support my old configuration. I like to work on Java/Scala, python, js and sql. Eclipse will be there since I use it at work.
Short listed Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS,
mint (huge confusion on gui),
Opensuse, elementary OS and arch. I had Ubuntu, mint for some time as secondary OS. Arch will be totally new world for me. I have tried few OS in USB boot but couldn't fix one.
Right now I am confused about which one to choose, since everything looks fine but I want the best choice based on my criteria.10
Just tried to make my Nvidia graphics card work beside my Intel one on Antergos. Fudged up my whole desktop manager and wasted 8 hours of my life... Yet for some reason I like IT. I'm beginning to think I'm somewhat of a masochist...
So apparently the Android emulator only works well on Intel processors
And there was me trying to be the good guy and buy AMD6
Does someone know why arithmetic left shift changes the original binary number's sign (1 to 0,vice versa) , but arithmetic right shift keeps the same sign?6
Compiled Gentoo after ~5 days.
It's not ever yet though.
My kernel is now 7.3M, and it contains almost everything I need. Even my network drivers (intel) firmware is built-in.
It boots straight off UEFI (default BOOT/bootx64.efi), and
Managed to install X, Waylan (sway!)
Got dvorak programmer's keyboard defaulted.
root 4.7G/14G (exact) used
boot 21M/127M (exact) used
var 701M/~5.5G used
Was doing the installation from a Live CD (UEFI) during school hours, with my toughpad not working and no mouse with me. I feel bad for TAB.
I am, at this moment, still compiling...1
Question to all of you guys using linux:
Is it normal for my PC to use 100W power with just x11 running, nothing fancy open while when using windows it just takes about 60W. I didn't find anything about that on the web so I'm really concerned at the moment.
My hardware is a xeon e3 1230v5 and a amd rx 480. My guess is that the amdgpu drivers don't support AMDs low power thingie. What are your thoughts?4
I got a very low power Netbook lately for basically no money.
I thought about using it for some server monitoring / server access via ssh console.
Which Linux distros would you recommend for such a use case. Tried Something like core-os and Debian(lxde) yet but wasn't very satisfied with both options. Both could not display the battery capacity and Debian didn't detect the Intel WiFi.
The Netbook has 512mb of ram which should be fine for a lightweight gui and more than enough for a ssh connection 😅
Thanks a lot for the recommendations :)12
Intel management engine pwned over USB
With everyday that passes, this Intel ME rabbit hole just keeps getting deeper.
So Im planning to build a pc, which i will mainly use it for dev and gaming in free time, my main components will be:
CPU: INTEL 8700K
GPU: GTX 1080 msi or gigabyte?
SSD: 860 EVO
RAM: 16GB 3200MHZ
MOTHERBOARD: should i go with msi or gigabyte whixh one is better?
PSU: 650W or 700W deepcooler?
Also for the cpu cooler do i get water colling or a standard cpu fan?
P.S: i plan to overclock the cpu and gpu at some point.
Also whats your opinion on the rgb lightning gpu and motherboard, and is there point in getting a mobo with sli support (is it work buying second gpu at some point or better upgrade the existing)4
It's weird no one seems to be mentioning a major problem with mordern Intel CPUs: Turbo boost. On newer laptops I always turn gimmick off now. Half the time the safeties don't kick in and you end up with 100+ degree C on your CPU for sustained amount of time (especially compiling!). Keep that happening over a couple of years I would not be surprised if that contributed heavily on battery stress and the shortening of the product... *cough* Apple "80°C+ idling is totally normal" *cough* (Actual reply from Apple when I queries about my McToasty 2015!)
Anyone else noticed this issue?2
In continuation to my previous rant, after resetting BIOS, windows server installed successfully. However, it was running extremely slow, Hmph, turns out I had forgotten what a nas server was: an1.3Ghz intel atom - wait for it - single core cpu. I'm upgrading when I get the chance.
Sorry for posting this, but I would like to know if you think that this notebook would be good for programming. I will put arch linux on it.
Asus UX31 0UA FC344T Laptop (Intel Core i7, 512GB, 16GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics/Win Home 10) Gold
In my opinion it should be pretty good. It has a decent processer, lots of RAM and a SSD . I won't use it for gaming so I don't think that the bad graphics card is a deal breaker.10
yahoo is now alleged to give away bulk mail content to intel agencies. such a dead investment, who uses yahoo for sensitive communications anyway?
I currently have a 3+ year old laptop.
Dell Inspiron 15 3521:
OS: Windows 10 Pro
RAM: 8GB (4+4)
Processor: Intel Core i5 3rd Gen
Video/Graphics Card: AMD Radeon 8730M 2GB (and Intel HD 4000)
Hard Disk: 1TB
It's slowly becoming sluggish and has clearly outdated hardware. I want to pursue a Master's degree in CS (Machine Learning oriented).
Should I consider upgrading? Build a PC instead? Suggestions?38
hi everyone just want your input planing to get a cheap laptop for development
Option1: Lenovo IdeaPad 330

Radeon gives notification about update. Update shows 2 major updates. Downloading update. Installer of update says its already up-to-date. What the fuck AMD and Intel?
Ps: How come that Windows still having issues with docking stations and different resolutions when (un)plugging?3
Recommend me a lightweight operating system for about 6 years old laptop with Intel Atom. 'nuff said I guess...22
So continuing on my PC buying post, my friend found a cheaper, by $300, option but it's sort of a give and take. And not sure which one is the best. Plus AMD * still gives me a bad impression.

Ok, so I missed the moment where I had an epic number of ++'s...
Someone, quick, downvote me once and comment so I can take a screenie!1
I've been distro hopping for a while now, and I can't settle on one. I'm stuck using a netbook with Intel Atom and 1GB RAM right now, any suggestions for a sexy, lightweight, and feature rich distro that won't run like shit?
I've already had Xubuntu, Debian, Arch, Kali, Elementary OS, and Puppy Linux.7
Anyone got Thinkpad t540p with linux (this one got i7, 16Gb ram, 3k monitor, nvidia + intel graphics)?
Any special problems?
Tried to find internet but seems to be normal Thinkpad problems but those are easy to fix. Planning to buy t540p for home cause previous Thinkpad broke.3
So, I was building a new pc for gaming and dev, but I can't choose which cpu to put in.
So I thought let's put it here: i7-7700k or Ryzen 1700X?
So I have been using Gnome for a long time and I love it . I am addicted to the start button based workflow. But recently i bought a high end desktop with nvidia GFX and gnome is laggy as fuck.
My laptop runs gnome better with intel.
That is until I found this
Now all animations are buttery smooth !
Why the fuck is gnome shipping something that works horribly on a majority of GFX card ?7
I’m shopping around for a new laptop and would like some recommendations.
Looking at Lenovo ThinkPad or Dell Latitude, Intel i5 2nd gen 2GHz - 3GHz, 200GB - 500GB ssd
Budget is a concern, I’m not trying to spend over $400.
Fucking Intel. Only allowing specific SFP transceivers on their x520-da2 card. I gotta load the firmware with a flag to be allowed to use my ubiquti transceivers.
And for some reason grub doesn’t let me use the “array” as the firmware said. So only one sfp port is active on boot. So I gotta find a clever way to get it to load properly. Maybe add a script to run at boot that does what I want.
So going to university in about 1 year, and ive been wondering, if I'm going into computer science or software engineering (my top 2 programs of choice), what laptop specs would u recommend? I'm currently running a computer with 8gb DDR3 RAM and a 5 year old Intel Pentium, integrated graphics, needless to say I think an upgrade would benefit. Thoughts?4
Is worth buying a gaming laptop for programming purposes and others like rendering and compiling.
like having an i7-8750H instead of an U one
and an 1050ti instead of intel 620
ofcourse the SSD is on both
the price are close enough, that is why i am thinking of getting a gaming one for it's capability7
Both laptops have the same price.
which one you think is better ?
(already used) MacBook Air 250GB SSD Nvidia Graphics 4GB RAM Intel Core i5 Processor
(brand new) HP Pavilon 1TB HDD Nvidia Graphics 12GB RAM Intel Core i7 Processor.30
Hardware Nerd Rant...
Spend nearly a year waiting for a super high end developer laptop. Tricked out MacBook Pro 2016: $4200+, Tricked out Surface Book 2/i7, $3700+
No 32GB ram because of Intel power consumption pre-Cannonlake. Mac doesn't have a touchscreen at its price point...
My gut ultimately says: NOPE.JPG
General hope is for GPU Docks like the Razer Core to come to Apple in 2017. Thoughts?10
Intel’s glueing Vega GPU into mobile packages and none of the YouTube videos covering the topic have made a leap of logic to speculate what Apple will do with their MacBook Pro lineup next year.3
Building OpenSSL for ARM is not working for me. Readelf output keeps saying the machine type is Intel. It must be the cross compiler configuration. Working with native libraries makes me want to just hug Java, which is a bold statement...12
Hey guys, I have a low spec machine with these specs:
32 GB SSD
4 GB RAM
Intel Pentium processor 1.66 GHZ 64 bit
I want to install a lightweigh Linux distro, could you recommend one.
P.S: Currently I am thinking of Bodhi or ArchLabs.5
Bool rant: true;
Bool dev: false;
I purchased my Lenovo P90 a year ago and it never updated since.
Lenovo even took the P90 off the upgrade plan. Is that why I spent around 350$ on it?
I'm sill running android 4.4.4 and can't find a ROM because the phone is intel based.
When I asked them in E-Mail I got a copy-pasted anwser to use the phones update function(it returns that I'm running the newest version)1
I'm thinking of getting a laptop for both gaming and video editing. I currently am thinking of getting a laptop with either a 7th gen i5 or 8th gen i5. Is there a huge difference in performance between the two generations? Is the 8th gen i5 core worth the extra money?6
PC has just done a weird thing.
I forgot that I'd set my BIOS to use my iGPU as primary display. Even forgot that I'd connected my monitor to the DVI on my motherboard instead of my Nvidia GPU.
I launched Doom. Doom ran wonderfully at 100+ FPS, happily displaying GPU stats for the nVidia GPU.
I switch to a different game and quickly realise it's using the Intel iGPU.
How in the blazes did my nVidia GPU render frames and push them to the iGPU display buffer? Must be a Vulkan thing, but it definitely weirded me out a little.2
After not using Intel XDK for a year. I just noticed that they dropped support for this tool in early 2018 and removed all the keystores stored in their system.
Now I'm unable to update my android app because I don't have the key anymore.
And now soon google play will remove my app due to security issue on certain module.
I should've kept the keystore myself...
Oh well mistakes were made and lessons are learned the hard way.
Does anyone have any suggestion to retrieve a keystore file?
What machine(laptop) you rocking?
I own a very cheap hp product, looking for upgrade. There are so much option I don't think I can solo decide on this one.
I looked at Acer Aspire R 15 Convertible Laptop, 7th Gen Intel Core i5, 15.6" and HP Pavilion Laptop 15-cc5xx .
Suggest me some products please.(~$600)19
Just bought Intel NUC and installed CentOS on it. Mounted NFS from my NAS. Installed docker, downloaded factorio image and started server. Now I have my own game server lol.1
Would you get a new laptop with Intel Celeron N3450, or slightly older with Intel Core i5 4310U? I'm talking both having 256 GB SSD, 8GB RAM and only iGPU? Both for pretty much same price.9
Fine, now I can build a *fucking* satellite with open hardware, but God forbid I can build a desktop PC.
Hello my fellow dev ranters! I've been speaking with my dad and he has been complaining about how slow is his old windows machine. I was thinking of move it to a Linux distro, but I don't know which.
The machine has 2gb of ram, about 200gb os disk, a ati radeon 2400 gpu and a intel dual core.
With these specs and taking into account that the final user is a person that mostly uses the pc for web browsing, sports stream and movies. What would be a good, lightweight and simple to use linux distro?
Thank you in advance!4
I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but couldn' find the proper reddit about to get this combo so, I want to know if this runs Ubuntu Xenial and what kind of power supply do I need.
I'm planning to use for mining with minergate software and mine XMR.
What's your opinion?
*tried to install latest intel GPU driver on a notebook*
Intel: this driver isn't design for your system please contact your device manufacturer
*Check again the compatibility list ... The CPU is present*
Me: okay, let's try this one, using display driver uninstaller to clean the old driver, reboot and launch the new one.
Intel: This program will install the new component graphic driver Intel®
Me: Well ... I guess I win this time ?
Still don't know why the previous one seems to block any installation of I don't manually clean it.
My previous version doesn't seems to be specific to anything ...2
Hey guys, who's using those new Intel U series processors? What are your thoughts on them? What's kind of OS you use and work you do with them? Are they reliable when using docker or VMS?
I'm asking cuz most reviews show that they are really bad compared to even older processors. I know that they are only dual core and use less power, but are they reliable for dev jobs?1
Question for the dev community about best laptops. I'm coming from developing on frankly outrageous desktop machines for the past two years (8700K with 32 gigs of memory and Intel Optane SSDs). I'm starting a new job soon where I'll need to buy a laptop to use at work for portability reasons. Company is giving me money to pay for it, budget is $2,000. What's a fairly portable laptop that isn't going to feel really slow switching over from crazy desktop builds like that?3
Little questions that can act as a survey,
I have a dual is tablet running Windows and Android the hardware is a Intel atom with 2gb ram and 32gb flash. I'm thinking of offering one of my OS's up but I want a second opinion.
What to kill windows 10 or Android 4.4.4
1) An employer looking to hire graduates that don't already have 10+ years of experience.
2) 17 inch Laptop with Intel Core i9 and Nvidia RTX 2080 or equivalent AMD hardware.
3) Smarter end users.
... really I'd be happy just with 2.2
i5 vs. i7?
My old laptop is dying and I've started to look for a replacement. I am used to have an i7 processor, my dev env consists of either vagrant and a VM or a docker-compose env. Plus I use JetBrains IDE. Mostly I do webdev, so not that much compiling going on, however often I need a VM with Windows to have Photoshop or Illustrator running...
So I guess the question is: Is there a notable difference between an i5 and an i7 for development?4
At the club, only one sitting... will spectate and bring intel when possible... think I'm spotted will report asap
hardships of being campus IT: took two full days to set up a PCMCIA wifi card because I had to circumvent the software required and it actually just wouldn't install the Intel software. also printer decided it didn't want to work anymore, ate a print job by retracting the paper it printed (and that's not even a thing it's supposed to be able to do) then ceasing to function.
thankfully I was the only one able to revive it, but the process was i n f u r i a t i n g2
I need an advice.
I just found an old pc, with a foxconn motherboard (http://foxconnchannel.com/ProductDe...) and an intel pentium (https://ark.intel.com/products/...-).
I need to buy a power supply, HDD (there were two with 300 GB in total) and new ram (there were 2GB of ram).
I think that the only thing I can reuse is the case (even though many screws are missing).
Taking into account that I am a student, so the financial resources are not a lot, do I just buy the missing pieces or throw away and change everything?
If I have to change everything, can you recommend an inexpensive setup?
P.S. I'm not a gamer, I'll use the PC just for school stuff (web development, java, virtual machines with VMWare).9
You're all programmers, right? How do I get my Grandpa's ASUS (Intel Pentium, Windows 10) to run faster? Please please he asked me to help.6
I'm currently on elementary.
I have two monitors, one plugged to my Rx 560 and GPU and the other to onboard graphics.
Despite this my main monitor is rendered on the Intel inbuilt GPU and I have stuttery gui on my primary monitor.
(My second one is an old monitor and I can't find VGA to dvi converters, on Windows it just works so I haven't had an issue)
Please help me guys !1
Building a dev/gaming PC - What do you guys thing about these specs:

I open Photoshop, I open an image, I start editing colors. I think to myself "I need to change units to pixels instead of inches". I open the "Preferences - Units" menu. I approach the mouse and click on the selection box for units.... My screens go crazy suddenly and I get a BSOD...
The computer reboots, refuses to repair, complains it can't write on the disk. I launch UBCD, start TestDisk, it tells me my MFT and the mirror MFT are both completely messed up and the partition contents as well... Wow wow... What the...?!
Thank you Intel GFX system driver.
I successfully PCI passed through my nvidia 970m to Bluescreen-OS on a nvidia optimus laptop.
Totally useless, if your GPU does not have any video output ٩๏̯͡๏۶
What's the point about having an HDMI output, if it neither works with the intel 530, nor with the 970m? Is it even connected? I mean, srsly, why would you do that? Best Linux support ever!!!1!!!2
spent a few days trying to track down the cause of a thermal shutdown in my workstation. intel 4790k with no overclock would spike to 95C on one core (core1) whenever maxing out all 8 threads, be it real work, mprime, anything with 100% cpu being used. I quadrupled my RAM from 8gb to 32, because its cheap and id like to have all data in memory sometimes, not because I thought that was the problem. I reseated my watercooling block. I checked out the PSU. I unplugged all unnecessary peripherals, drives, etc. It turned out to be a bug in Gigabyte MOBO BIOS (causing temps to be read incorrectly i think, still not exactly sure...) updated from version 5 to 10 and poof now temps are back in the high 50's at full load. it only took 2 days to figure out and i think i learned something
Learning system development. Period. Heck, I'm still looking for resources that don't cost hundreds of dollars, require me to open-source everything I want to make, require that I read a 4000-page Intel manual, and/or ask that I be in a graduate program or have a degree that I am still earning.3
Is there a web browser for Linux that supports hw accelerated video decode?
There are so many bug reports for this, but all seem to be "won't fix"/ api is unstable or some other problem
I want to watch youtube without it destroying my battery.
(I know I can load the stream into a video player like VLC and watch it there, but that is not very practical...)2
Erry day I'm tetherin'
Because the fucking WiFi driver gives up on life every 3 months, repairing takes about a month everywhere and I have 3 devices, so there's not a whole week that I can spend without usb tethering from my phone.
Im finding parts for my brothers new pc, and i really think that Ryzen 5 2600X is a great choice.
But then one of his friends said that Intel is better for gaming, and suggested an i7-8700k.
The price difference doesnt mean much, my brother just wants whats best for gaming, and now im starting to doubt my own decision.
Which CPU would you think is better for gaming only?
Literally gaming only, not even school . Its only gaming.
Lets not start a war, i just want pros/cons, straight up facts or your experience with either :)14
Hey! Check this out!
My profile has a unique number. 386
You know why? Because there was an intel 386.
Thank you for your support everyone. You made me reach this goal.
I am so blessed!
Awesome folks here
For those who don't get it, it is sarcasm1
In the near future i'd like to switch to Linux on my primary laptop (HP EliteBook 8570w) - my uni requires it for the 2nd semester.
I've been thinking about Manjaro, or something else based on Arch Linux... The problem is - I've heard about how problematic is the installation of nVidia Graphics drivers. In my laptop I have the basic Intel HD Graphics with the 2nd Gen Intel Core i7, and an nVidia Quadro K2000 card.
My question is: will I it be really problematic?1
Well, it's me again from yesterday, so i did a minimal debian install and i think i did what the debian site said regarding the graphic drivers for ati but here's the deal:
xrandr --listproviders only shows the intel provider, the dedicates amd gpu [RX 550] is not shown. (Also on doing lspci it is shown as a Display controller instead of vga adapter.)
+ the laptop heats a lot too
Any idea regarding what should i do? Or maybe where do i get help?
Off topic question: What is the difference between vga adapter and display controller??
