What makes CachyOS not just Arch based distro.

Optimized Packages and Repositories

CachyOS maintains its own repositories with optimized packages, especially for your hardware. There are x86-64-v3 and x86-64-v4 optimized repository, that exists to enhance your experience by: reducing latency, improving performance, applying special fixes, etc. Also, the system automatically selects repositories that are the fastest and optimized specially for your cpu.

Advanced Scheduler Support

Firstly let’s understand what scheduler is. In the Linux kernel, the scheduler is a crucial component that manages how tasks (or processes) are executed on the system. It decides which task should run next, ensuring efficient use of system resources to allow multiple tasks to run simultaneously. By default CachyOS provides BORE Scheduler (Burst-Oriented Response Enhancer) in our default kernel. It provides better performance and interactivity according to our test. But we also provide other schedulers, like: EEVDF, sched-ext (Framework to load userspace scheduler’s), ECHO, and RT. And you can choose any you prefer the most via the kernel manager.

Customizable Installation Process

When you have loaded to live iso (from usb). You automatically meet our installer. But what if you don’t want some components to install or let’s go deeper you don’t like this bootloader or kernel. You may want to change Desktop environment or window manager. Our installer provides much more choice than other distributions. You can and should to choose what you want to have and what not. And we provide to you this abilities. Your system your home.

User Friendly OS

By default, we provide our applications, like CachyOS Hello or CachyOS Package Installer and others. In order to simplify and make better for your experience. For example, CachyOS Hello provides options to update your system, enable services and rank the mirrors. Package Installer will help you to install packages. CachyOS also has a really good and friendly community, which helps each other very well.

I use VLC,Keepass,Kdenlive and few other QT Apps on my sway setup. So, wanted to configure their themes from Sway. I installed qt5ct and qt6ct and did export QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME=qt5ct in bashrc and .profile. While runnin echo $QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME it is showing qt5ct but it is not working showing that error message that QT_QPA_PLATFORMTHEME need to be set as qt5ct or qt6ct when launching from .desktop But when launching from terminal they start and function properly but do not change any theming.

eg. change this:

runtime: org.gnome.Platform
runtime-version: "46"

to this:

  - org.gnome.Platform/46
  - org.gnome.Platform/45
  - org.freedesktop.Platform/20.08
  - org.kde.Platform/5.15

Many people complain about flatpaks taking up too much space. Allowing for more runtimes to be shared between apps would take up less space. However, this has been denied.

If I am an app developer and I know my app runs on several different runtimes, why shouldn't I be able to specify all of those runtimes? Are there technical reasons why this is a bad idea?

EDIT: I mean a list of runtimes of which one must be installed, not a list of runtimes of which all must be installed.

Silverblue vs uBlue (lemmy.world)
submitted 6 hours ago by ozymandias117@lemmy.world to c/linux@lemmy.ml

I’m considering trying out an immutable distro after using Tumbleweed for the last 6 years.

The two major options for me seem to be Fedora Kinoite or uBlue Aurora-dx

My understanding is that universal-blue is a downstream of Fedora Atomic

So, the points in favor of Kinoite is sticking closer to upstream, however it seems like I would need to layer quite a few packages. My understanding is that this is discouraged in an rpm-ostree setup, particularly due to update time and possible mismatches with RPMFusion

uBlue Aurora-dx seems to include a lot of the additional support I’d need - ROCm, distrobox, virt-manager, libratbag, media codecs, etc. however I’m unclear how mature the project is and whether it will be updated in a timely manner long term

I’m curious what the community thinks between the two as a viable option

Whenever AI is mentioned lots of people in the Linux space immediately react negatively. Creators like TheLinuxExperiment on YouTube always feel the need to add a disclaimer that "some people think AI is problematic" or something along those lines if an AI topic is discussed. I get that AI has many problems but at the same time the potential it has is immense, especially as an assistant on personal computers (just look at what "Apple Intelligence" seems to be capable of.) Gnome and other desktops need to start working on integrating FOSS AI models so that we don't become obsolete. Using an AI-less desktop may be akin to hand copying books after the printing press revolution. If you think of specific problems it is better to point them out and try think of solutions, not reject the technology as a whole.

TLDR: A lot of ludite sentiments around AI in Linux community.

Linux Mint as been in development for over 15 years. Its good for them to get some press coverage and positive attention.

As far as I can tell most people switching to Linux Mint are fairly happy with the experience beside some minor Linux quarks.

I've activated automatic updates in Gnome Software Center. Now more and more updates are shown to me here. Even after a reboot, the update notifications are still there.
If I manually click on "update all" and reboot, the update notifications disappear, but I actually thought, after reading the documentation, that updates would require no action from me at all, and that's what I want.

The weird thing is, the installed programs themselves claim to already be on the new, updated version.
So why are the updates still shown in the Software Center?


According to the archwiki article on a swapfile on btrfs: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Btrfs#Swap_file

Tip: Consider creating the subvolume directly below the top-level subvolume, e.g. @swap. Then, make sure the subvolume is mounted to /swap (or any other accessible location).

But... why? I've been researching for a bit now, and I still don't understand the benefit of a subvolume directly below the top level subvolume, as opposed to a nested subvolume.

At first I thought this might be because nested subvolumes are included in snapshots, but that doesn't seem to be the case, according to a reddit post... but I can't find anything about this on the arch wiki, gentoo wiki, or the btrfs readthedocs page.

Any ideas? I feel like the tip wouldn't just be there just because.

I have an older Intel laptop that has a 1600x900 display, and I find that if I put the machine to sleep, connect an external monitor with a higher resolution, and then turn it back on, the login screen doesn't adjust to the new resolution and it reveals what I had open (see photo).

However, I'm not that familiar with Linux Mint (even though I've daily driven Linux for nearly 10 years, I very casually use LMDE) and I'm not sure if this is a Cinnamon problem or if the lock screen is under a different program.

Looking at Linux Mint's webpage on reporting a bug (https://projects.linuxmint.com/reporting-an-issue.html) they seem to mostly use Cinnamon as an example, but I don't want to report this issue as a Cinnamon issue if it's the wrong project.

In case this is platform specific, my device's details are below:

  • Host: Dell Latitude E6420
  • CPU: Intel Core i7-2630QM (Sandy Bridge)
  • GPU: Intel 2nd Generation Core Processor Family
  • Kernel: 6.1.0-21-amd64
  • DE: Cinnamon 6.0.4
  • WM: Mutter (Muffin)
  • Display Server: X11

I've never filed a bug report in my life before, usually I just put up with the issue until it's eventually fixed, but I feel this is a moderate security issue that should be flagged.

Thinkpad recs? (lemmy.ml)
submitted 18 hours ago by electric_nan@lemmy.ml to c/linux@lemmy.ml

I like used Thinkpads. I bought a T430s off eBay and used it for several years. Recently I got a T570 from work. It had a screen issue, so I bought a new screen. That didn't fix it so I bought a new mobo, but it has a loose drive connector so won't boot. Just now I killed it for good by putting an nvme in a sata slot lol.

Anyway, I need another laptop and I don't want to buy something new. The t570 did everything I needed it to, but I'm concerned about the design/build quality. What Thinkpads are people running these days that aren't very old but still solid?

As an avid CLI user, I always aimed to master non-interactive tools to perform most of my work, given that they are easy to use, create, extend, and connect.

However, I found myself dealing with software projects with many files (mostly under the yoke of corporate oppression; an ordeal which I endure to sustain myself, as most of those reading me do, and therefore I will not go further into this topic) and started to hit the limits of non-interactive tools to find and edit files. Indeed, I could go faster if I followed the temptation of monstrous IDEs, as I did in my innocent past.

I did not despair, as naturally I heard of the usefulness of interactive fuzzy finders such as fzf. After spending an afternoon evaluating the tool, I concluded that it indeed increases the complexity of my workflow. Still, this complexity is managed in a sensible way that follows the UNIX tradition.

I now ask you two general questions:

  • Did you reach similar conclusions to me and decide to use interactive fuzzy finders to solve working on software projects with many files?
  • If you use fzf or similar tools, what can you tell me about your workflow? Any other third-party tools? Do you integrate it into your scripts? Any advice that you can give me out of a long time of experience using the tool that is not easily conveyed by the documentation?

I also ask this very specific question:

  • The one part of fzf which I found missing was a way to interact with the results of grep, and to automatically place the selected file(s) in the prompt or an editor. For that, I created the following two commands. Do you have a similar workflow when you want to bring the speed of fuzzy finding to grep?
#! /usr/bin/env bash

# gf: grep + fzf
# basically a wrapper for 'grep <ARGS> | fzf | cut -f 1 -d:'

# print usage on -h/--help
if [[ "$1" == "-h" || "$1" == "--help" ]]; then
    echo "Usage: gf <grep-args>"
    echo "~~~ that feel when no 'gf' ~~~"
    echo "- Basically a wrapper for 'grep <ARGS> | fzf | cut -f 1 -d:'"
    echo "- Opens fzf with grep results, and prints the selected filename(s)"
    echo "- Note: As this is meant to search files, it already adds the -r flag"
    echo "Example:"
    echo "  $ nvim \`gf foobar\`"
    echo "  $ gf foobar | xargs nvim"
    exit 0

# run grep with arguments, pipe to fzf, and print the filename(s) selected
custom_grep () {
    grep -E --color=always --binary-files=without-match --recursive "$@"
remove_color () {
    sed -E 's/\x1b\[[0-9;]*[mK]//g'
custom_fzf () {
    fzf --ansi --height ~98%
grep_output=$(custom_grep "$@")
if [[ "$?" -ne 0 ]]; then
    exit 1
    echo "$grep_output" | custom_fzf | remove_color | cut -f 1 -d:
#! /usr/bin/env bash

# ge: grep + fzf + editor
# basically a wrapper for 'grep <ARGS> | fzf | cut -f 1 -d: | $EDITOR'

# print usage on -h/--help
if [[ "$1" == "-h" || "$1" == "--help" ]]; then
    echo "Usage: ge <grep-args>"
    echo "- Basically a wrapper for 'grep <ARGS> | fzf | cut -f 1 -d: | \$EDITOR'"
    echo "- Opens fzf with grep results, and edits the selected file(s)"
    echo "- Note: As this is meant to search files, it already adds the -r flag"
    echo "- Note: Internally, it uses the 'gf' command"
    echo "Example:"
    echo "  $ ge foobar"
    exit 0

# takes output from 'gf' and opens it in $EDITOR
grep_fzf_output=$(gf "$@")
if [[ -n "$grep_fzf_output" ]]; then
  $EDITOR "$grep_fzf_output"

Have a wonderful day, you CLI cowboys.

NUREMBERG, Germany – The release of Leap 15.6 is official and paves the way for professionals and organizations to transition to SUSE's enterprise distribution with extended support or prepare for the next major release, which will be Leap 16.

Demands for robust, secure and stable operating systems in the digital infrastructure sector are more critical than ever. The combination of the community-driven Leap 15.6 and SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 Service Pack 6, which integrates new features and enhancements, offers an optimal solution for managing critical infrastructure. Notably, SUSE's general support and [extended support]](https://www.suse.com/products/long-term-service-pack-support/) versions; these Product Support Lifecycles last well beyond Leap 15's lifespan, ensuring longer and reliable service for users.

SLE 15 SP 6 is a feature release, so users can expect several more features in the Leap 15.6 release.

This alignment ensures businesses and professionals using Leap for operational needs can enjoy a clear, supported transition to an enterprise environment, which is crucial in a move for systems that require long-term stability and enhanced security. As organizations strategize their upgrade paths, adopting an enterprise-grade solution like SUSE becomes a strategic decision, especially for those managing extensive networks and critical data across various sectors.

Since being released on May 25, 2018, Leap has added several additions like container technologies, immutable systems, virtualization, embedded development, along with other high-tech advances. A rise in usage from each minor release shows that entrepreneurs, hobbyists, professionals and developers are consistently choosing Leap as a preferred Linux distribution.

Leap 15.6 is projected to receive maintenance and security updates until the end of 2025 to ensure sufficient overlap with the next release. This will provide users with plenty of time to upgrade to the release's successor, which is Leap 16, or switch to SUSE's extended service support version. Users interested in commercial support can use a migration tool to move to SUSE's commercial support version.

The inclusion of the Cockpit[1] package in openSUSE Leap 15.6 represents a significant enhancement in system and container management capabilities for users. This integration into Leap 15.6 improves usability and access as well as providing a link between advanced system administration and user-friendly operations from the web browser. The addition underscores openSUSE's commitment to providing powerful tools that cater to both professionals and hobbyists. Leap does not come with a SELinux policy, so SELinux capablities for Cockpit are not functioning.

Container technologies receive a boost with Podman 4.8, which includes tailored support for Nextcloud through quadlets, alongside the latest releases of Distrobox, Docker, python-podman, Skopeo, containerd, libcontainers-common, ensuring a robust container management system. Virtualization technologies are also enhanced, featuring updates to Xen 4.18, KVM 8.2.2, libvirt 10.0, and virt-manager 4.1.

The Leap 15.6 release incorporates several key software upgrades enhancing performance and security. It integrates Linux Kernel 6.4, which provides backports for some of latest hardware drivers, which offer performance enhancements. OpenSSL 3.1 becomes the new default and provides robust security features and updated cryptographic algorithms. Database management systems receive significant updates with MariaDB 10.11.6 and PostgreSQL 16. Redis 7.2 offers advanced data handling capabilities and the software stack is rounded out with PHP 8.2 and Node.js 20; both received updates for better performance and security in web development. Leap will also have OpenJDK 21 providing improvements for enhanced performance and security in Java-based applications.

Updates in telecommunications software are seen with DPDK 22.11 and Open vSwitch versions 3.1 and OVN 23.03.

The KDE environment advances with the introduction of KDE Plasma 5.27.11, which is the latest Long Term Support version, Qt 5.15.12+kde151, and KDE Frameworks 5.115.0, as well as Qt6 version 6.6.3, facilitating smooth application operations with updated Python bindings for PyQt5 and PyQt6 aligning with Python 3.11.

Many unmaintatined Python packages were removed as part of a transition to Python 3.11; more details can be found in the release notes.

GNOME 45 brings enhancements to the desktop environment, adding features that elevate the user experience. Audio technologies see major upgrades with the release of PulseAudio 17.0 and PipeWire 1.0.4, which improve hardware compatibility and Bluetooth functionality, including device battery level indicators.

These updates collectively enhance the system’s stability and user experience and make Leap 15.6 a compelling choice for professionals, companies and organizations.

Leap can be downloaded at get.opensuse.org.

End of Life

Leap 15.5 will have its End of Life (EOL) six months from today’s release. Users should update to Leap 15.6 within six months of today to continue to receive security and maintenance updates.

Edit: Last night, I used the "Fix MergeList problems" option in the maintenance tab of software sources and at least for now, it seems to be working. So I probably wont need help with this anymore, hopefully.

Every hour or two, the Update Manager keeps giving me an error message saying that my APT configuration is corrupt and that I should switch to another Linux Mint mirror. It usually goes away when I do a manual refresh but it just keeps coming back. I have also tried switching to a different mirror but I get the same error. It also tells me to run apt-get update but even if I add "sudo" it just gives me an error message saying to run apt-get update.

It happened again so I'm adding screenshots in case they help. The first is the initial error, then it's the error I get when I try to change the repository and the third is the error I get when I try running the command it suggested:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word "Linux" in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
