Where is the Raspbian OS stored?

Where is the Raspbian OS stored?:

I have a 16GB SD card and I want to install Raspbian on it. Do I need to have a Raspberry Pi to use it or I can boot it from a PC? Is the OS stored on the SD card so you can use it on any computer by just plugging it in and selecting the SD card from the boot menu or it will erase the current OS and replace it with the Raspbian OS?

In other words can I use any computer to use my Raspbian OS or is it just a installation media to install Raspbian on a computer?

Are the files stored on the SD card or on the PC hard drive. Another question from this is does Raspberry Pi have it’s own internal storage (i guess if it doesn’t then the folders and files I create and use on the Raspbian OS are stored on the SD card and I can use it on any PC)

Thanks for reading!

Dual Boot Windows 10 + Manjaro with a common storage partition:

hey guys !

I manage to configure my computer with a dual boot on my SSD with both windows 10 and manjaro. But I have a hard drive on my computer that has a single ntfs partition which I seem to be able to fully interact with only in windows. I can access the hard drive through manjaro but I can’t modify or create any new files in them.

Would it be possible to setup my HDD so that I can use it in both manjaro and windows ? It’s really more of a comfort thing since in the worst case scenario I can simply repartition the HDD and have one storage for manjaro only and one for windows only, and still have my music in windows available to read on manjaro. Anyway.

Also if anyone could send me a tutorial to learn how to auto mount a hard drive for manjaro, that would be great. I’m in the middle of my exam session so I don’t have that much time to look it up but if I end up finding(or if somebody posts in this thread) any useful links I’ll edit my post to have them.

Thanks guys !

How to reset all brightness modifications?

How to reset all brightness modifications?:

I have followed many instructions in the past and now things are bad. Like: Suppose if I sleep and wake up my laptop, I have to toggle the brightness again in order to make my PC realize what was my brightness level.

This happens also when I restart or start my laptop.

The weird thing is there is certain brightness level, let’s say its 50% showing up in brightness panel but until and unless I don’t toggle it, PC doesn’t respond to that amount of brightness.

AMDPro driver, VEGA, OpenCL

AMDPro driver, VEGA, OpenCL:

Installed Ubuntu 19.04 Studio and tweaked it to my liking, only to discover AMD doesn’t have AMDGPU-PRO kernel modules for that distro and only supports 18.04-LTS.

Since I’m about to blow away this install, I’m looking for experience with folks using AMD GPUs for OpenCL, Davinci Resolve, and Blender. It seems CentOS is the most common platform for this kind of work, but I’ve got an AMD x399 1950x CPU that requires a modern kernel. I’d also like kvm support for qemu if possible. Arch seems one option. But I just want to get back to work.

I really liked the Real Time kernel in Ubuntu Studio. It worked with Jack perfectly. But I’m not sure if the Ubuntu Studio kernel will work with AMDGPU-PRO drivers. So I could use some advice, if anyone here has experience getting Linux set up for this purpose.

Lost Home Partition after Reinstall

Lost Home Partition after Reinstall:

Hi All,

So I use Debian Stretch with Mate as a desktop environment, and have been having some problems with my GPU, where debugging has killed lightdm to the point I’ve had to reinstall a few times. The time before last this happened, I created a separate home partition for the home directory so I could easily grab files if I needed to reinstall.

My problem is that I have reinstalled, and the partition appears to have been wiped. I’m looking to try and recover these files as some of them directly relate to my job. Below is the output for fdisk;

The Microsoft sections are for a shared drive for a VM, I’m using an SSD which is LVM encrypted and an extra harddrive which isn’t. As far as I can see, my original home partition is not there. Am I missing something and if not is there any way to recover the data?

Create your AI, pick your robots and prepare for battle as Gladiabots has left Early Access:

Tags: Strategy, Itch.io, Steam, Indie Game, Programming

Gladiabots makes me feel dumb, very dumb. It asks you to create various AI and assign them to robots, to face off against another team of robots in a battle arena.

It’s a strategy game of sorts, while also being a logic puzzle programming game at its heart as well. It offers up a single-player campaign, which realistically is just a (quite good) extended tutorial to get you ready to compete against other real people. This is where it really gets interesting, as it offers online play but it’s of the asynchronous sort so you’re not playing at the same time, meaning it doesn’t actually need people online to play which makes it pretty sweet.

It just left Early Access and I will admit I’m being a little overly dramatic on the dumb part, it’s actually surprisingly easy to create a somewhat competent AI thanks to the very friendly drag and drop interface. When I say competent though, I mean I can make my robots not act like a potato. They still die often, quite quickly too but it’s also damn good fun to try.

It offers up different game modes like elimination, domination and collection as well as a sandbox mode to fully experiment with your AI creations.

You can find Gladiabots on itch.io and Steam.

Tank Maniacs, a crazy local multiplayer game that’s all about blowing each other up is coming to Linux “soon” and we have keys for those willing to provide the developer with feedback.

For those who haven’t seen it before, check out the trailer below first to see if you would actually be interested:

Game Features:

  • 11 wonderfully weird tanks
  • 7 different maps (we are continuously adding more during the beta)
  • 2 game modes
  • couch madness up to 4 players
  • support for a wide range of controllers
  • unforgiving AI bots

After recently writing about it, I spoke to the developer again who has now provided me with 15 keys. This does come with the expectation that it will be tested on Linux and you will need to give feedback on their Discord Channel. This is your chance to ensure another great local multiplayer game is nicely polished for the Linux release.

If you want to get a Steam key, simply make it clear in the comments and by the end of Saturday I will send a private message on here to those who are picked.
