Could immutability be a Leap too far for openSUSE users?

georgezilla Silver badge

I've used opensuse ...................... for so long that I can't actually remember when it was. If they take Tumbleweed here, then I'm gone. And maybe have to start saying ........................

BTW, I use Arch.

And that would be a sad day indeed. :(

I have some questions ...

Which package manager do I use to install a "cross distro" pack manager?

Which "cross distro" package manager do I use to install a "cross distro" package manager?

If my distro's package manager isn't good enough to install packages, what do I use to install a "cross distro" package manager?

Why is installing a "cross distro" package manage eaiser then just using the distro's package manager? And doing it all my computer and distros? I have many computers and distro's.

And the most important question ,.....

What is so difficult about clicking on the "install" button that my, most distro package managers use to install a package?

Aren't "cross distro" package managers NOT the answer to a problem that that DOESN'T exist?

Just asking these questions for a friend.

georgezilla Silver badge

My distro(s) already have a package manager(s). So why do I need(?) another one?

And they have worked just fine for as long as I've used them.

So why do I need another one?

Or do I need another, different package manager because it's just to damn complicated to click on the "install" button when asked?

And what do I do when an install breaks something? Well ....................

I fix it. Because ........ Linux. And I can. Which is one reason why I use Linus instead of OS's X and Y. You can't? Well there's always OS's X and Y.

Re: I know it's hard to believe

" ... If you can do all you need with 8GB, then 16GB or more is a waste of money ... "

Yep, you're right. Until ...............................

You actually need more. Then you're fucked. And have to go out and spend more money on a new Laptop. Where as all I need to do is spend $100US ( give or that ) to double it to 16GB. Or less then that to quadruple my storage.

You want to talk about a "waste of money"? Okay, let's actually have that conversation. But that's not going to happen, because you actually can't.

Like with most things, they reach elbow deep up their asses and see what they pull out. And no matter how fucking stupid, hateful, fearful or xenophobic it is, they blow it up and run with it.

Re: Darwin in action

91 criminal indictments across 4 jurisdictions, by 5 Grand Juries. Let's hope so.

Found liable for sexual abuse in a civil case. A "University" and a "charity" closed because of fraud. Not allowed to do business, ever again in the State of New York and his business there in receivership after being found guilty of fraud and other things. Looks kind of like it does so far. And we will see what happens in Georgia and D.C. and again in NY.

And then there are States that may not even allow him to be on their ballots come the Presidential Election in 2024. Which could possibly really fuck up his chance to get re-elected even if he could win.

So yea, I'd call that "evidence" that it does. And we shall see on the 91 current outstanding indictments.

Re: There's nothing particularly wrong with it except for its hardware requirements.

Well you assume that because some people use them, that it's okay. Here's a clue: It's NOT okay! But there are alternatives. And it's easier to start with something that's NOT from Microsoft or Apple. Then deal with Google.

georgezilla Silver badge

It's okay, you don't have to resist. Because like many, you don't seem to understand that "okay Boomer" isn't actually the insult that you seen to think it is. And us Boomers just laugh and shake our heads at people that use it out of ignorance.

Think about the things that you wouldn't have if it wasn't for us Boomers. Things like oh say ..................... the internet?

Re: Gore took that all the way to the Supreme Court

Okay. Exactly which cities "burned to the ground"? Portland? Seattle? Nope. I can promise that they were and are still standing in spite your bullshit claims.

And people were killed, while morons stormed, broke into the Capital and damaged property while trying to kidnap and/or assult Congress people. While trying to stop the peaceful transfer to the duly elected Government all because some egomaniac whined because he couldn't accept the fact that he had his ass handed to him in the election. A free and fair election.

Re: This is the most problematic indictment for him, by far

If it was part of an oath they took, yes. As they swore to do by taking said oath.

I took an oath, twice, to protect and defend the Constitution. Which included taking a bullet, or being blown into so many fucking pieces.

And that includes even the ignorant fucking Trump supporters. In this case it's the Trump supporters that my oath requires me to protect the Constitution from.

" ... A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. ... "

Huh. It appears to be all one sentence. So no, you're wrong.

Okay, just one thing wrong with the "Proud Boys" "antifa" analogy". The Proud Boys are actually a militia, they freely admit that they are. And antifa actually isn't even an organized group.

Oh and then, just how did this bogie man you call antifa try to overthrow the Government? Violent protests in the streets? Versus the storming of the Capital, trying to stop the peaceful transition of the duly elected Government?

Hint: They're not the same fucking thing. Not even close.

georgezilla Silver badge

Re: This is the most problematic indictment for him, by far

Actually I do like that bit. One problem with you comment. The "Government" at the time was Trump. And Trump's Government actually did try to do what you claim. Where as Biden WASN'T in Government. And as a private citizen violate the Constitution by asking. The amendment ONLY prevents the Government from doing it. I can do it all I want. I'm not prohibited by the Constitution.

georgezilla Silver badge

Re: This is the most problematic indictment for him, by far

Huh. So I understand that "stand your ground" allows you to shoot someone simply because you fear for your safety and/or your life. Which is what this person did. And not only for their safety, but the lives of elected officials that they were charged to protect.

So I'm just going to call ............. BULLSHIT! On you argument.

georgezilla Silver badge

Re: This is the most problematic indictment for him, by far

So several dead cops and one dead protester ISN'T serious?

Okay.

Were the bombers caught? Did they stand trial? Were they found guilty? But because the Jan. 6th protesters DIDN'T burn down the Capital means that shouldn't be brought to justice?

Okay.

It would be nice if you could stay on topic. And the topic here is .................. The State of Georgia vs. Donald John Trump. And NOTHING else.

This is just another piss poor attempt to yell ............................ LOOK A RABBIT!!!

And it ain't going to work here. Sorry.

georgezilla Silver badge

Re: This is the most problematic indictment for him, by far

< shakes head > So you are incapable of understanding that in both cases, liable and guilty, are both in the same Court of Law, both in front of a jury and that both mean that YOU DID what you are accused of.

Okay. I don't know what planet you are from, or in what reality you are from, but it sure as shit isn't the same one the rest of us live in.

georgezilla Silver badge

Re: This is the most problematic indictment for him, by far

Oh I don't know. Maybe because the alleged crime didn't take place there? So it had no jurisdiction to take place there?

That's why Trump was indicted and charged in Florida instead of D.C. . Because the crime was committed in Florida. And the crimes that were charged in D.C. took place in D.C..

See how that works?

Well shit. Apparently you don't.

georgezilla Silver badge

Re: This is the most problematic indictment for him, by far

So you're unable to understand that "not guilty" means that they are innocent?

Wow! Okay.

georgezilla Silver badge

Re: This is the most problematic indictment for him, by far

So the reality of the fact that no jury would find her guilty is beyond your ability to understand?

Why would you take someone to trial if you knew before hand that they wouldn't find them guilty?

Why is it that simple shit is beyond your ability to understand?

georgezilla Silver badge

Re: Let me just correct the record here.

Okay, sense you seem to know what she was doing, how about some actual proof? You know, the kind that will actually stand up in a Court of Law?

Wait. Hang on. You don't have any? Well no shit!

Biden, China and the Ukraine? Same question. And the same answer. You don't have shit.

Then there's the fact that this is a piss poor attempt at distracting from a 4 time indicted, liable for sexual abuse ( Judge used the word RAPE! ), twice impeached, election loser.

And that neither of them is relevant to the fact that this is about The State of Georgia vs. Donald John Trump. About The Government of the United States vs. Donald J. Trump. And ONLY about Trump.

No. Well sort of.

Originally is was commissioned by and paid for by, wait for it .......................................... REPUBLICANS! OOPS!

Did Clinton the pay for copies of the dossier? Maybe. But that's relevant to............... ABSOLUTELY FUCKING NOTHING!

This is about The State of Georgia vs. Donald John Trump. Period. And nothing else. Why is that such a hard fucking concept to understand?

Swamp? And you think that Trump drained, or tried to drain it? Lol. Nope. Just brought in bigger gators to make the swamp look smaller and that he tried to drain it. Proof? Just look at the indictments against him. 6 un-indicted co-conspirators in one, and 18 in this one. Or any or the many, many other Trump people that were convicted or plead guilty. Lol. Drained the swamp. What a fucking joke!

Re: @StrangerHereMyself - They'll try

" ... would be back in a week saying "This computer is broken". ... "

At which time I would start it up, use it and then ask them ...... Broken? How? it's works just fine. And in fact it actually does. Because it's not the computer that's broken, it's the customer that is.

What if a customer buys a hammer, and comes back and tells you it's broken? Is it broken?

Re: functionality

" ... I spent 20 minutes trying to get it to do something then gave up ... "

I'm willing to bet that is because you don't actually understand what ............. "It's not Windows" ................... actually means. And when you tried to do Window's type things ( which is ALL you know how to do ), they didn't work. Surprise! No shit.

Installing Linux is really very simple. Find a distro with a live version, put it on a thumb drive, boot the thumb drive and give it a test drive. If it found everything and it works, there's likely an icon on the desktop that says "install". Click it, answer 3, maybe 4 questions and LEAVE. When you come back, remove the thumb drive and reboot. And unless you messed with shit you didn't understand, you have a working system.

It didn't work? Find someone, anyone that understands the meaning of ....................

Apparently no one that works on system ever took Math. Math is hard. And I guess so is counting.

Or is it that they just don't know, understand what the word "version" means?

Either way, why do we trust someone and their systemd when they can't even fucking count?

Well I can see your point. I just have a question. Then just how as the ONLY user, do I do the things that sudo allows me to do?

Log out of my user account ( a hassle ) and log in as the admin ( more hassle ) and get access to serious shit that I REALLY shouldn't have access to then log out ( again ), log back in ( again ) so that I can now do what I need to do?

Okay.

No.

Just fuck no.

Re: Glad it has some documentation

So what does "lags behind " have to with it actually working? Hint: It has absolutely nothing to do with it. Not a damn thing

Based on that fact, how is your comment, or that part of it, relevant at all? Another hint: It's not.

So I guess my point is ..... WT=actual-F ?

You might have well said ..... " ... If by ultimately works you mean, if the sky is blue ... ".

Linux has nearly half of the desktop OS Linux market

georgezilla Silver badge

Re: Why though?

" ... I wonder if most Linux users actually feel this way or if the people who think ChromeOS isn't Linux are just the loudest. ... "

My money is on that most Linux ( okay, maybe not most, but fucking far to many ) don't actually have a fucking clue as to what Linux actually is.

Linus is the kernel.

Ubuntu, Redhat, Debian, ect. are all OS's that use the Linux kernel.

I use opensuse OS. It uses the Linux kernel.

georgezilla Silver badge

Re: What, no proof readers?

So you don't actually understand what the headline or article is saying?

Think about it. The article is make the case that ChromeOS IS in fact a Linux distro. So if you count it's 4+% of the market, then LINUX has a 7% share. So both the headline and the article are correct. Linux, as most people think of it, actually is half of the Linux OS market.

I'm sorry if it's a bit complex or convoluted, but it is in fact correct.
