Dual Boot Concepts

Dual Boot Concepts:

Hey,

i just read about people tending to dual boot a PC with Linux and Windows.

Usually people tent to install both OSs on the same drive. This has always lead to trouble and often loose one system, loose the other as well.

Installing a single OS on one drive and using your user data on the same drive also often leads to loose one, loose the other as well in case of problems.

Same goes for the boot hirarchy.

Placing the bootloader on the windows drive may let you loose access to both drives in case of problems.

A prooven concept for a safe dualboot home machine is, to use one SSD for one OS and a second drive for your data.

So for a dual boot machine im using 2x SSD for the OS’s and 2x HDD for my data.

  • Windows OS is on /dev/sda (c:) primary master
  • Windows my data is on /dev/sdb (d:) secondary master
  • Linux OS is on /dev/sdc (e:) primary slave
  • Linux data is on /dev/sdd (f:) secundary slave mounted as /home !!

The bootloader grub2 is installed on primary slave, my LinuxOS boot SSD and is set in BIOS to boot first.

The reason is, otherwise grub will be installed on my Windows c:\ drive and once the Linux drive is out, off, broke, i cant access my Windows anymore due to bootloader problems cant find my Linux, so i need to reset the bootblock on the c:\ drive. Thats bad so im booting into primary slave.

Linux on the other hand is accessible when the Windows OS drive is missing or failed.

I hope i could get some people inspired to think about the concept they want to dual boot their PC.

Cheers^ ^

Is someone running sc2 via lutris on opensuse?

Is someone running sc2 via lutris on opensuse?:

Hello everyone,

i am trying to get starcraft2 running on opensuse.

Ive read the recommendations page (https://github.com/lutris/lutris/wiki/Game:-Blizzard-App) but i cant install all the recommended packages because some are missing in the repos.

To be more specific, the following package is missing: xorg-x11-font-utils that’s why the installation of mscorefonts2 fails.

does someone know how to get that package for opensuse?

any help appreciated! 🙂 greetings

Quake 3 Arena in 2018

Quake 3 Arena in 2018:

What is the canonical, best way of playing Quake 3 arena on Linux right now? I believe this has all migrated to Quake Live by now, but I don’t think that actually has native support. I read that some people still prefer to play Quake 3. I assume the latter would connect you to a different server structure and a smaller playerbase than QL. Is Quake Live pretty good in Wine? I find many posts about this in terms of Windows, but little information as it pertains to Linux.

Edit: looks like I was wrong, apparently they charge you money to play QL now? Dafuq?

Logitech g502 on linux

Logitech g502 on linux:

Okay I’m a long time windows user and I have been hating it for quite some time. The only reason I’m still on Windows is because everything is just made for it. I even have a dual boot working Mac os high Sierra (hackintosh) and I still prefer it over windows. Anyway my issue is my mouse settings it just doesn’t feel right on Linux no matter what I do. I’m wondering is there any specific guide out there to adjust my dpi and fully remove accelaration ? I’m still quite new to Linux. I’m using antergos (Arch Linux)
