I’m getting into Linux system administration after having used Linux for several years. I don’t have experience in professional environment with Linux to do certain tasks as my personal needs haven’t called for it but while I’m learning, is there any advice as to what I should study? Book to read? Maybe some practice projects that I could expect to do in a job that I could get the hang of at home? I’m switching my career from HVAC/R to this. I’ve seen job postings from quite a few companies asking for knowledge to create software for development tools for their engineers. Is that a normal thing to do as a Linux system administrator? It sounds like they are trying to get a mixed bag of a sys admin and a programmer for cheap.

Can anyone with a Ryzen system tell me if AMD-v, aka SVM, can be used for two different type 2 hypervisors at the same time? For example, at least one hardware accelerated Virtualbox machine running alongside at least one hardware accelerated QEMU/KVM.
I'm using KVM for GPU passthrough, and Virtualbox for everything else on my current system.

Intel cannot run both at the same time with VT-x, and it is a huge problem for me on Skylake-X. I have to load and unload the kernel modules each time I want to switch between the two, so cannot run them at the same time.

After being locked in to the Intel ecosystem for so many years, it occurred to me that there might be another option with the latest Ryzen CPUs though.
I'm going to be using the 16 core or the new Threadripper when they come out if that matters.

Not an answer to my question. They are different hypervisors with different strengths, weaknesses, and bugs. Suggesting that all jobs can be done on just one or the other means you probably aren't using them for much.

somewhat. Upgrading between major releases always breaks for me, so I'm forced to reinstall every 6 months.
>very secure by default
sort of. It has SELinux and packages are usually compiled with sane flags, but then again, it has a much greater attack surface because all of the Poetteringware.
last time I tried Silverblue it sucked. I believe it uses shit tonnes of virtualisation/FUSE crap just to achieve and immutable base system. You also have to restart after installing each package, and unless you use purely flatpaks, you lose some of the benefits of OSTree anyway.

>> No.71177127

>Mesa and Chromium
I am on Mesa 19.0.5, the latest release, from May 21 2019. Chromium is 73, so not terribly outdated either (74 is current stable). If you want to use Chromium, you might as well use Chrome or ungoogled-chromium, both of which provide more up-to-date versions for Fedora.
>Upgrading between major releases always breaks for me
Use Silverblue
Seems like RHEL doesn't care about that.
>shit tonnes of virtualisation/FUSE crap
Huh? It uses fs namespaces, bind mounts and maybe overlayfs, nothing terribly complicated. Not a single FUSE driver. Also, why would it need virtualisation?
>have to restart after installing each package
You can do multiple packages in one go, even multiple different operations. Having to reboot is kind of necessary to achieve the immutable thing, although they are working to have a live-remount system for purely additive changes to the system (just installing packages), which can be used right now but is considered unstable. For throwaway package installs, you're supposed to use Fedora Toolbox, which is essentially a transparent unprivileged container with dnf.

Lately, my xorg has been completely fucked up. Sometimes it just completely locks up and I can't do anything, not even switch to a different tty. Sometimes it happens right when I startx, sometimes when opening a program (has happened with both termimal and firefox in the past) or when shutting down.
The only thing I can do is a hard reset via power button.

It started about a month ago, and I've since reinstalled trying to fix it, but to no avail. Then, earlier today I finally realized I should look at dmesg, and foud out the cause is a kernel paging error caused by the amdgpu module.
This is on Arch Linux (btw), and no, pacman didn't fuck up my xorg.conf. That is still tthe way it should be.

Does anyone have any tips, or similar experiences?

No offense, but in my experience the answer is overwhelmingly because you did something to deserve it.
Unless you're talking about something like 4chans IRC, but if you're talking about technology IRC channels then it's like I said.

I have never once been treated poorly in any tech communities, or IRC channels, and I only ever see someone being mistreated when they're acting like they're entitled to something. They'll show up practically demanding that their problem be given attention, or if someone doesn't respond immediately they start dropping passive aggressive threats like
>hmmm, guess nobody knows maybe I'll use <alternative_software> instead
crap like that doesn't deserve to be shown any respect.

>> No.71179117

that probably depends on the channel

it's like arch if simplicity still meant something

>> No.71180210

>which are either hostile or indifferent to artists, their vision, their sensibilities and their needs.
Because, on average, software developers are not artists. They have no clue about artists' needs and they personally don't really care either. They, on average, care even less about art than most non-software-developers. Also you're not paying them to care and you certainly don't seem to be contributing code.
You're demanding shit to be done for you for free, which is not how it works.

I don't think your attitude reflects the overall developer attitude at all, and that sentence I quoted makes you sound a bit like the average edgy 4chan elitist.

Most developers would be happy to have more users, even artists and any other non-tech oriented types.
Just because they don't go out of their way to accommodate them doesn't mean they agree with your elitist attitude, it just might mean they don't think it's their job (e.g. following the Unix way might mean they want to build the bare bones CLI software only and then let someone who's more understanding of an artists needs build a GUI for it).
Often that just doesn't happen though, but it's not because nobody cares.

The developers who would be happy to have more users are those who make the distros. And they have their hands full actually maintaining the distro. The other group who would be happy to have more users are those who make desktop environments. But they have their hands full maintaining their desktop environment. Everyone else who wrote software did it because it solved a problem they personally had and wanted to be fixed.

Also you should understand what it's like for us when someone like you shows up asking questions.

75% of the time because they don't understand the technical issues they're very impatient with US first.
So for example, if we try to explain "sorry we just don't have a way to do it like that, but you can do it this other way instead which is a bit more complicated"
usually what happens is that "artist" type gets angry, starts implying the software other have worked so hard on is garbage and that they're going to go use something else instead.

I'm sure you can imagine that after seeing that day in and day out for years on end many of those developers end up becoming a bit harsh to non-tech savvy users preemptively without realizing it. Because they see them ask a question they can't really give the expected answer to and they just see the conversation going down that bad path like it has so many times before.

>You're not getting anywhere demanding unpaid software developers rewrite all the stuff to fit your personal needs
I agree. But there's a big difference between demanding and requesting.

It's not that I'm saying you're wrong, it's just the way you're making the mentality of the developers seem is wrong.
They aren't sitting there thinking
>Not my problem bub, you write your own code if you want that feature. Oh you don't know how to program? lol too bad
It's really more like
>I just don't want to do it. Sure it would be great if someone else could help you, or write the code to accommodate users like you, but it's either just not my specialty or just not something I feel comfortable adding.

They're technically the same thing but the attitude behind it is totally different.

Both are text editors, but emacs is by design more extensible and as a result less lightweight.

If you want a lightweight terminal text editir that is controlled with things like Ctrl-x, Ctrl-m, Alt-t, etc., go for nano.
If you want a leightweight terminal text editor with a bit of a different approach to commands (multiple modes. a key does different things in different modes, for example: in insert mode, "d" writes a d, but in normal mode, "d" deletes an amount of text dependent on what key you press next (dd deletes the line, de deletes to the end of the word, d2j deletes 2 lines down, etc.)) choose vim.
If you want a lightweight graphical text editor and don't care about all those hotkey shenanigans, choose meousepad.
If you want a not so lightweight terminal text editor, that actually is an interpreter for a scripting language called elisp, choose emacs. Emacs may be shit by default, but because it is so customizable you can do a lot of shit with it. Want to make it control like vim? There's a plugin for that! Want to have an integrated web browser, music player, tetris, digital fingerbox...? There's probably a plugin for that. Only problem with emacs is that the defaults are so shit, so everyone changes their config so much that one person's emacs becomes unusable to any other emacs user.

Arch actually broke for me recently in a very strange way. I couldn't update xorg-server because for some reason pacman that the files belonging to xorg-server belonged to anybody.

That's all true. The post you replied to wasn't about GNU/Linux not having poor support for stuff like that, it's just saying that the reasons for the poor support aren't due to any ideals, "minimalism", or elitism.
Writing good software for things like that is one of the hardest things to do. Probably even harder than making your own freaking window manager or something.

no. But there are some packages for other distributions though it's mostly packages for older versions of distributions.

The documentation has a lot of references to something called "Arch". I believe that's what they are testing it against.

I personally don't like the idea of Appimages, I'd hate to have a system full of those things. But in cases where there's no choice but to compile... it would be a god-send. Like when Krita was released, I could just download the appimage, chmod a+x and run it easy as pie. Not so with Cinelerra.

I seldom ask anything, I usually assist developers where I can, especially with music software, and contribute to its development. The problem with linux distros as I see it is that they're created by programmers/IT guys, managed via programmers/IT guys, distributed to programmers/IT guys. If they were user-oriented companies they would have departments that would assure distro's accessibility and ease of use for the general public, good GUI implementation, out-of-the-box convenience, good driver support and availability of the newest and best software, i.e. all these "superficial" things that are very important according to me and most other non-tech people who don't care about tinkering with console.

its a proposition.

They will make their own adblocker (lawsuits inc.) but fuck up APIs that ublock will use -- is what I assume from the news. Corporate users will be excluded from the change.

Since it looks like the change is kinda an option there is a possibility that only consumer grade chrome will be kek'd, chromium and derivs might not be. We will see.

I have 2 private keys : rsa_1 and rsa_2.
Now "cat rsa_1" and "cat rsa_2" give different outputs
But "openssl rsa -in rsa_1" and "openssl rsa -in rsa_2" give the same output

Your key is used to encrypt the actual encryption key. That’s why you can have many keys for a single thing.
If it was not like this and you used the same key for different things, guessing it with plain text attacks or some kind of comparison would be much easier.

As far as I remember, I just copied rsa_1 from ssh folder to keepass and renamed it rsa_2.
