Nethunter TWRP failing

45 min 45 sec ago

I am rooted, and bootloader unlocked, I have busybox and the like, but when I try to select device name under 'install TWRP' it reports an unexpected error and the log is;

Build version: 9.8 Build date: 1979-11-30 00:00:00 Current date: 2018-06-20 17:02:20 Device: LGE Nexus 5

Stack trace:
java.lang.NullPointerException: Attempt to invoke virtual method 'org.json.JSONArray org.json.JSONObject.getJSONArray(java.lang.String)' on a null object reference at com.jmz.soft.twrpmanager.utils.RecoveryDialog$ Source)

If it matters, I have access to a terminal shell and my android os is at 6.0.1. If you need more information about my current system, feel free to ask, but in any other case, thanks in advance!

Nvidia Optimus and DXVK+Vulkan Gaming.

Tue, 06/19/2018 - 22:49

Hello all.

I've been trying last few days to figure out how to play games like BF1 and other AAA titles on my optimus laptop using the DXVK project and WINE

Now I know that bumblebee does not support Vulkan hence my problem. This would be easy and I would be done in a matter of a few hours if I had a desktop (currently saving up).

So my question is if I do not care about powersaving and switchable graphics can I use the Nvidia drivers without bumblebee on my optimus system? Note that my BIOS does not support turning off the Intel GPU

I did try blacklisting nouveau rebuilt grub and installing the nvidia drivers from aur but I got a black screen.

Airplane mode problem

Tue, 06/19/2018 - 21:44

Play dota 2 on my laptop which has Ubuntu 18. 04 installed on it. As I completed my match I went to the lobby and above there was a title that said I am in offline mode. Then I closed the game and saw that near my battery symbol, there is a airplane symbol. I went to Network settings but there was nothing I can do.

After sometime I restarted my laptop and then the airplane symbol was gone but when I went to the Wi-Fi and bluetooth settings, the button to toggle Wi-Fi on wasn't there and the button to toggle bluetooth can't be changed and it was written and connect a Bluetooth dongle to use Bluetooth.

I used the USB tethering and it was working but I don't know why the wireless tethering is not working. Please help me.

YouTube Music

Tue, 06/19/2018 - 16:24

If you're looking to get Google's new suite of YouTube Premium, or just YouTube Music free or paid, I have got you covered. We're going to do a simple trick that most people use for Netflix: Chrome. Chrome is a great tool for people who want to use web pages as apps. Just download chrome, and go to the YouTube Music web page and go to more tools, create shortcut and optionally (and more practically) press the open as Windows button. Even if you're not a Google Chrome user, it doesn't open a chrome window, and works really well with the exception of downloading music, which is Windows/Mac exclusive for now.

Anyways, I hope that you found this at least interesting.

Question: What's your most useful one-liner?

Tue, 06/19/2018 - 14:16

I currently work for a hosting company who's primary distro is CentOS. In the office, we often share our favourite one-liners which save time when exploring what might be causing issues, summarising logs, automation etc.

For example, here is a quick one-liner I use to analyse Postfix maillogs.

cd /usr/local/ && curl -O && yum install perl-Date-Calc -y && tar -xzf pflogsumm-1.1.3.tar.gz && mv pflogsumm-1.1.3 pflogsumm && chmod u+x pflogsumm/ && perl /usr/local/pflogsumm/ /var/log/maillog* > /var/log/maillog_summary.txt && history -d $(history | tail -1 | awk '{print $1}') && less /var/log/maillog_summary.txt

What about yourself? What's your most useful one-liner?

Thanks in advance, I look forward to seeing yours!

Is Linux is still for geeks ?

Tue, 06/19/2018 - 14:12

Being a linux user off and on , mainly on the Raspberry Pi. I have two questions to pose to other user of linux. If they want more user to use and enjoy linux, shouldn't it be as easy to install as windows or mac? Also seeing most people who now install linux will be installing on machines that are likely to have ssd's inside them, shouldn't the linux distrow's automatically compensate for this without having to be a geek with terminal to set up 'Trim' , It should be there at the beginning of the install , like a little tick box if your computer is using an ssd or a normal hard drive. I like linux and have often donated to distro's i thought were good, BUT come on, get with the times linux, NOT everyone is a geek!

Linux question/advice

Tue, 06/19/2018 - 11:11

I currently run 10 window vm's with a hosting provider costing me roughly 33 per VM. I am wondering, if I build a server for my office, and then run 10 linux VMs on it, what would be best linux build to use? The ONLY thing I run on these VM's are chrome, dropbox and a way to remote connect. The windows VM is really overkill. Hardrive space is very minimal as most is taken up by OS currently. Thank you for any suggestions.

"Do you want to continue? [Y/n]"

Tue, 06/19/2018 - 09:37

This thing has been bugging me for years now, why is the (Y) in capital and the (N) is small? I know it's just nitpicking but just wondering, does it have a purpose? Or it's a mistake that no one bothered to fix?

Lineage OS

Tue, 06/19/2018 - 08:58

So, a couple questions:

How many of you have tried Lineage OS? Does it work well? Can you still call/text? How does it interface with your cell service provider?

Lastly, I couldn't find a specific list of devices supported. Does anyone have a link?
