Remember those wacky early 00s amd athlon xps?
I had one. I just got 8 extra fps in QIII and because of overheating got my CP burned. AMD was shit. Then I bought intel pentium 4 2ghz and still use it to this day.

Fuck unstable ATHLON

All desktop chips are shit. If you think you need to overclock your processor, the rest of your machine is probably shit, too. The first laptop I ever bought had a 1.6GHz Turion (MT-30), and it ran circles around the 3GHz Pentium 4 desktop that my dad bought a year later, and used less than a third the power (25W vs 89W).

Old version of windows (2)

1 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2020-07-12 07:38 ID:E6pQ0wWM

Is there any clear disadvantage to using an old version of windows (xp, vista, 7) over windows 10? Are there any workarounds for those disadvantages?

2 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2020-07-13 20:08 ID:MOunye0v

Outside of MS propaganda about OH NOES SCARY HACKERS (when Windows 10 has destroyed more of my data with nonconsensually forced reboots than any virus or hacker ever did), the main practical issue you'll have is that newer software might not work depending on what version of the compiler it's made with. This is how they try to force you to "upgrade".

I was uninstalling wine and then it started uninstalling a bunch of important packages. Now i can't download gnome again. I NEED GEDIT.

Also i don't NEED the gnome DE as i am using XFCE. i just need gedit because i can't find any other text editor that supports saving in shift_jis...
Does anybody know how to fix this?

TRON project as original and newest OSs, Specifications and Concepts (69)

1 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2006-03-23 10:32 ID:6Kuniap+

TRON is the Japanese and worldwide computer project from 1984.
TRON has been started by Dr. Ken Sakamura of University of Tokyo.


60 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2013-09-06 07:50 ID:Cur4/6m/

can anyone show me what TRON is?

61 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2013-09-06 16:38 ID:Heaven

An elaborate Japanese hoax, an operating system that doesn't actually exist.

62 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2013-09-08 17:03 ID:AD6QitwE

i realy don't get it...
it seems like TRON is realy exist...

63 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2013-09-08 17:47 ID:Heaven

Just try to find somewhere to download it... You can't, because it doesn't really exist.

64 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2013-09-08 17:57 ID:AD6QitwE

then, is it just a concept and/or an architecture?

65 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2013-09-08 23:26 ID:TePtLK2X

TRON is just a specification, but there is a tron-conforming open source os-skeleton available. Skeleton means it lacks code for communicating with processor and memory, if I remember correctly. It does have the higher-level interfaces and some drivers ready as well as the real-time time-allocation stuff.

Also, you already have an I(ndustrial)-TRON system if you have a Japanese camera or car.

This is the current project's web site:

So, TRON isn't 'non-existent' as some people seem to believe.

66 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2013-09-09 02:05 ID:Heaven

> it lacks code for communicating with processor and memory

well, that sounds really useful.

67 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2013-09-10 16:20 ID:07SwUYql

is there any tutorials to implement it?
and can you give the os-skeleton's download link?

68 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2013-09-18 23:04 ID:TePtLK2X


This is the main source. There is also t-microkernel and some packages I don't really know about. If you want to get a t-kernel running you should know your target system's memory management support and the type of processor. It's possible, but if you can do it you can just walk in to some software company and ask for a job. I haven't found any 'ready-to-go' source packages.

In August 12th of 1985, Japan Airline Boeing 747 crashed into the forest. Official story is that the top rudder broke off. What was interesting is that U.S. Army stationed nearby were the 1st to arrive. Official story is that the Japanese government needed to save face and so they ordered the U.S. to back off. The truth is that back in the U.S. of A, they passed a law banning Japanese Operating Systems for computers. 80's was booming with Japanese electronics in the U.S. It was strategically important to not allow any foreign entity to have a monopoly on computer information. Microsoft won with their OS and we all know that there's a backdoor to the OS for the NSA to peak into. Well guess who was on board on the ill fated airline. . . All 17 programming engineers that were involved in the Japanese TRON OS was on board that plane. Because this happened so long ago, not very many Japanese, especially the young ones that don't even remember such crash ever happened in their back yard, know of this.

[Help/Support] Old Macintosh Networking (13)

1 Name: 4n0n4ym0u5 h4xx0r : 2006-08-23 00:56 ID:6UkC6RmM

I have a problem, and hope someone here can help -

Recently I got a Apple Ethernet LC Twisted-Pair [ethernet] card off of ebay for my antiquated LCIII in hopes of using that thing as a server.

In preparation to do so, I updated to OS 7.5.3 (clean install) so I didn't have to use the bloated install of OS 7.1 already on the HDD.

Here's my conundrum - despite appearing to physically work (LED lights for link, etc) MacOS gives me an error whenever I try to make that network card my Appletalk device, and refuses to get an IP addr. when I hook it up to the Internet.

Neither OpenTransport or MacTCP will resolve to an IP, and the associated Appletalk (Appletalk and Network, respectively) Control Panels refuse to use the ethernet card as an Appletalk device.

Any ideas?

4 Name: Albright!LC/IWhc3yc : 2006-08-24 08:27 ID:MySOTQ8q

Don't buy crap off of eBay?

Seriously, you're going to be hard-pressed to find an answer for this one. I'd try a highly popular Mac forum, like MacWorld's forums, and hope there's a neckbeard there who routinely networked LCIIIs in their day.

Just curious, what exactly are you going to serve from this thing?

>Static html crap, maybe some files.

According to EveryMac, this thing didn't ship with a hard drive bigger than 160MB. And according to >>3, you haven't upgraded it. That's not a lot of data; you might as well just sneakernet with a Flash drive or something. I guess I still don't get why.

Unless you're just doing it for geek points, in which case I'll say no more.

Albright Builds a Computer (30)

1 Name: Albright!LC/IWhc3yc : 2006-06-25 06:19 ID:erMTJ0cy

ITT Albright talks about his experience building a computer. I'm sure some of you folks (like one of my college roommates) are already well-familiar with the process and could do it in your sleep, in which case you'll probably get no more amusement out of this thread besides whatever humor could be extracted from the accounts of my mistakes. So the purpose of this thread is to give an account of this experience for those who have not done so, but are considering doing it for the first time, as I did.

In college, I got an English degree. Just a bit of advice to anyone working or planning to work toward an English degree: Reconsider. A degree in basket weaving would be more practical, as many people are willing to pay for baskets. Not so many (in America, at least) are willing to pay for English.

While in college, I worked part-time for three years doing tech support for the school's computer labs. Since doing anything with the English degree didn't pan out, I thought going back into the tech field would be nice, but it turns out I'm unqualified (at least on paper) for any "real" tech jobs. So I decided to work toward getting a certification called A+ Core. This covers a lot of info on the workings of standard PC hardware and software; some common, some rather esoteric and/or antiquated. Anyway, many of the sources I saw about the test recommended having a computer we could take apart and examine whilst studying. That, combined with my desire to have a PVR but disgust at monthly rates TiVo and its ilk charge (I didn't need to pay a monthly rate to program my damned VCR!), led me to the decision that it was time to build my first computer.

I liked gnome1. Gnome2 just feels too...glossy, also it's slow like kde. Main thing annoyed me about kde is the toolbars were really loose and jumps to the next line too easily and the default skin is awwful.

22 Name: Redhatter : 2006-07-07 01:58 ID:Heaven

I can remember Gnome 1.x... it was the shiny new desktop that came with Red Hat 6.0...

Complete with the first version of Enlightenment.

I used it for a while at first, but ended up moving back to KDE (1.x IIRC)... Gnome/Enlightenment just wasn't my style in the end.

I use Debian wheezy and the official Firefox binaries.

Just go to the Firefox website and hit the download button. It'll give you a .tar.bz2 with firefox/ inside. Extract that somewhere you have read/write access to--I used /opt/firefox/. After that, add that directory to your $PATH (e.g. open up ~/.profile and add something like PATH="/opt/firefox:$PATH"). Firefox's own updater should be able to update the software with no problems. Setting up any sort of desktop or menu shortcut shouldn't be difficult, just set it to run firefox (or the full pathname) and to use the icon in the firefox/icons/ directory.

Admittedly, it's not the best solution, but it works and ensures you get timely updates straight from Mozilla, with all the dependencies included. However, you may run into troubles with update-alternatives and the like, and you might have to set some options in your desktop environment (if you use one). But in lieu of a proper Mozilla Debian repository (maybe there is one, I haven't checked), it's one of the easiest ways to go about it. Maybe someone a little more package-savvy than myself could write a script that automatically fetches the latest binary, packs it into a .deb, and adds the relevant metadata? I don't see why it would be too hard.

Running Debian 64-bit. Tried to enable multiarch to install Wine 32bit. I was suggested these commands by the "wine64-bin helper package." I ran these commands as root:

# dpkg --add-architecture i386
# apt-get update
# apt-get install wine-bin:i386

When I tried the last command, this was the output:

The most relevant information, I think, is at the bottom:

dpkg: error: --configure needs a valid package name but 'libuuid1' is not: ambiguous package name 'libuuid1' with more than one installed instance

I recently bought a Gateway DX4375-UR22. It came with a 1 terabyte hard drive. I turned it on, and it booted up using Ubuntu. Me being me, I stupidly decided to take it apart. I put it back together, and now there is a problem with the hard drive. Everything else works fine, except for the hard drive. The drive is a Seagate Barracuda 1000 Gigabyte. I decided to try it in another computer, but the other one does not recognize it as a drive. I tried putting a hard drive from another computer into the Gateway to see if it would boot, but no luck. The seagate drive spins, but it is not transferring data or being recognized. Can I save the drive? How can I boot up the computer?

You didn't take the fucking drive itself apart, did you? If so it's fucked, buy a new one.
If I'm reading you wrong, then I guess the chances are you didn't plug it in properly. It's getting power fine, but are you sure there's any actual data connection?
