My blog on improving Linux based operating systems

Linux has 2 major problems, like it or not it is a problem.

First is the problem that is available in every distro out there, the package dependencies or libraries that are shared among programs. Yes it takes less space when you share it but when you update one package you will possibly break another since the newer package is not compatible. Distro needs to have separate libraries for each program.

Second is the window system, we know it by X11 or Wayland, they are both shit. Every time I use Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) it feels like a proper experience.

with this linux is fixed, anything else to add?

    Only that you're a moron, and that the only reason Windows works is first class driver support. If manufacturers gave it as much effort as they did Linux, it'd be worse than Linux.

      >it'd be worse than Linux.
      hard to say. I personally think the reverse engineered drivers are better in some cases since they aren't built by time crunching pajeets. encouraging more of the same levels of downloading arbitrary driver code into the kernel, much like novideo shitware on Linux is like now, is probably non-ideal. Unless you're saying companies invest in open sourcing and upstreaming drivers, then ya, I agree. sadly we live in the nightmare world where we have both loadable firmware and firmware that's cryptographically signed.

        Do pajeets actually ever land driver dev roles? I feel like I've only seen the streetshitters work on java and web, both extremely low barrier of entry so even the dumbest of these troglodytes can learn to shit something out that looks like java/js code.

      This, the only reason amd drivers on Linux are any good is the fact that they're not developed by amd.
      It's mindboggling how in half a year nvk went from being unusable to being reasonably usable, while Nvidia drivers have had shit broken for years with no end in sight, I crave for when nova is in good condition so i can ditch the proprietary drivers all along.

    There should be a kernel of linux that has support for the invasive DRM, Proprietary, Anti-Cheat stuff. Not everyone is a tinfoil schizo, some people want a just werks experience. There needs to be a distribution that runs on a kernel that can run something like Valorant, League of Legends, Rainbow: Six Siege, Fortnite, and any other game without issues. Majority of windows users are on windows because either they are tech illiterate and don't know about linux, mac is too expensive, their job forces them to use windows, the hardware/software they want to use is only used by windows, and gaming since it's the biggest and richest hobby/entertainment industry in the world in 2024. If vidya worked better in linux than in windows then windows would literally lose 90% of the zoomer audience.

      Non issue, fixed already, use a distro that doesn't have this problem, etc.

      X11 is just fat and a pain to configure, neither are problems for a supermajority of users.
      gayland has problems, sane people don't use it, I am insane however, as I use it, but only only on weekends, national holidays and every other workday afer-hours.

      Some actual problems would be /home, /media and /local existing. /usr was /home, /local was never needed and we already have a /media, it's called /mnt. Then there's whatever /usr/local is, basically a garbage dump for when you don't feel like sorting things into the proper folders.

      At least linux doesn't have a registry. Also, X11 was designed with thin clients in mind, you have the server running on a mainframe and a terminal to act as the client, but it suffers from featurecreep as it needed to be extended while being backward compatible.

      That's just the Linux Kernel these days, thanks to shitters like you.

      Apparently it's not enough that you can run most propietary firmware, that you can run your overpriced gayming gpus, that you have a literal SteamOS, that everything works out of the box, now you want literal Tencent spyware on your PC with root access before you make the move? And you get mad at Linux for not accomodating this, instead of getting mad at Riot for trying to install spyware on your system?

      linux already has no qualms supporting proprietary stuff, you know. the issue is not that linux refuses such a thing, someone has to make it, and supporting anti-cheat shit is not a simple task, remember: the whole point of said anti-cheat is to avoid exactly this kind of thing, tricking it into passing on unsupported configurations, so it takes any steps it can to make it as hard to do as it can

          not the same as microcode headers for proprietary drivers. every hardware needs them, the reality is they do not care because its not where the gross profit margins are. kernel acess has nothing to do with a children's video game and the only games that required are dogshit slop that belongs on windows

          >anti cheat on a video game has NOTHING do to with kernel access
          i'm not certain if you meant this as anticheats don't require kernel access or shouldn't require kernel access
          if the former, they (some) do require it, not to suggest i think it's a good thing, just that some of them actually do install a kernel mode driver in order to function. due to how wine and operating systems in general work, wine cannot intercept calls made to kernel space (syscalls), so supporting these kinds of anticheat software requires some level of support from linux itself as well. there has been an effort to implement a feature into linux which allows for these kinds of calls to be redirected back into userspace, where wine could then act on them, i haven't looked into the progress of that in some time

          a good "fix" for that would be making a official linux port and have user side anti-cheat, which all valve games already do. the problem is that Riot never considered offering their product to linux they were dickriding on wine all this time

      you as a normal user can change your screen just fine
      but before you actually login, you do not have a user

      you need to change screen preferences system-wide instead of user-wide

      That is quite literally the case for pretty much every OS, normal users cannot change system defaults/edit all other users' screens/languages/keyboards etc pp.

      Assuming gdm
      cp -v /home/<your-user>/.config/monitors.xml /var/lib/gdm/.config/

        tell me you have never used windows or a laptop without telling me you have never used windows or a laptop

        i know it's scriptable. the user does not know ahead of time what their monitor setup is going to be when using their laptop naturally in a busy environment. for example, they might need to quickly undock to go do something. or they might move location and dynamically be on a new monitor configuration without knowing it ahead of time

        even for the limited use case that your script supports, what makes you think its acceptable to remember to have to run an elevated script beforehand?

        compare this to windows where all of this works transparently. no thinking required. you just use your computer and get on with your life, and your laptop automatically adapts to your monitor setup

        until linux implements this, it can't be taken seriously as an os for laptops

        yes, i prefer things centralised and integrated. integrated in that all packages share any common components, also importantly, there's no distinction between system and user packages, by this i mean in contrast to windows where you have a fixed set of components that make up "windows", then you install user applications on top of that. on linux all packages are equal, so to speak, you decide what your system is made up of
        this is what allows linux to be so lean, you can start with basically nothing, then install what you want, and since everything is completely interconnected, installing anything will always bring in exactly what it needs
        while i understand such a system has higher maintenance requirements than windows, which has a large common base you can't touch, then programs are built against that base, however the advantage there is only applicable to the people making packages, not normal users, users don't need to worry about things like installing dependencies, that's what the people running the distro do
        package managers on linux and ones on windows like winget are not equivalent, maybe from an end user perspective they look and feel similar, but on windows is just an alternative means of distribution and updates, they're still normal windows packages in that they are self-contained and target many versions of windows, you can't strip windows down using them

            It's not about a process being unused it's about memory in your working set of RAM that has been touched but infrequently accessed.

            Modern operating systems track page usage and page out this unused RAM so that you can use it for something else. If the application decides it wants it back later than the OS will page it back in again but just sitting their unused is in nobody's best interest.

            didn't read your shitty blogpost homosexual, what are you gonna do about it?
            Even on my 8GB RAM laptop I don't use swap because it's worthless.

            This is why smarter people than you continue to use Swap. If it were worthless it wouldn't exist.

            My 8GB laptop can compile most bloated software in the world without running out of RAM without using swap but swap isn't worthless or something like that, kek

            The fact that you still think Swap is only about running out of memory still shows how much of a fricking idiot you are. You fail to see the forest through the trees.

            yes there's no other usecase for swap besides wasting my time once a runaway process does make my system run out of RAM

            It's set that way on purpose. My system runs fine too. It's okay to Swap. Swap is not some ugly thing to be afraid of. It's a normal part of a modern operating system.

            Swap is not a proper noun, it gets small case if it's not the leading word of a sentence.
            I only use it on my laptop because my laptop only has 16GB. On my desktop, I don't even have swap.

    how about hire real jannitors to watch games and detect cheaters that way?
    Once you figure out that a soulless wagecuck can efficiently detect 99% of cheaters this way, you may even figure out that you can do serverside "AI" that watches replays and detects cheaters the way humans did, then you won't have to install spyware on your user's system to begin with...

    oh my bad, I didn't realize that this isn't about preventing cheating but about controlling people who wouldn't cheat anyway because cheaters will kill the user side anticheat just like people did with IME, which is a bit harder to defeat than kernel malware

    >Yes it takes less space when you share it but when you update one package you will possibly break another since the newer package is not compatible. Distro needs to have separate libraries for each program.
    This is an ABI breakage and it's not intentional, it's often introduced accidentally.

    The good news is it often doesn't matter. Breakage is temporary until your distro rebuilds the broken packages.

      the breakage isn't even visible to end user because update simply won't be pushed if ABI breakage prevents something from working

        Sometimes distros do push updates with incompatible ABIs because their package manager is shit and often can't see it or you're one of those morons building stuff outside of your distro, from the AUR, etc, and now need to rebuild them.

        Gentoo handles this the best in my biased opinion. On Gentoo this is just emerge @preserved-rebuild and the package manager automatically triggers rebuilds on its own when it can detect that they're necessary.

            Other distros do try to handle it too, just most fail spectacularly.

            Fedora's Dnf is aware of dependencies at the .so level and is good at stopping you from shooting yourself in the foot with an upgrade when it can detect that doing that upgrade would break some other program using a particular .so version of the library.

            Distros like Arch don't even make an attempt. If things break then so be it. Your problem, not theirs.

    Interesting list, I was gonna say things more like
    - Make the kernel internal interfaces stable and backwards compatible so that we can
    - Move drivers out of the kernel and maintain them separately from the kernel
    Linux developers won't do this because they're afraid of stability

      They don't do this because this is not the advantage you think it is. It's better for everything to be maintained together to encourage standards and code re-use.

      Huge refactoring can be done in one go and they benefit all consumers of the subsystem in question.

          It's actually not forced. A lot of drivers in Linux are dual-licensed because things like the MIT are compatible with the GPL-2.

            I mean the license, not the driver. You're free to use whatever license you want as long as it's compatible with the GPL.

            The combined product of Linux + your driver will always be GPL but your driver can still be re-used elsewhere, like if the BSD distributions want it they can take it.

        It's all worthless if my old hardware doesn't work with the new kernel. They don't/can't maintain drivers forever, and they don't provide a permanent API, so eventually we're locked out of mixing old and new hardware together short of writing drivers ourselves. It's not good, please think about my 3Dfx card

      Nix doesn't really solve the problem it just duplicates everything.
      The real problem of ABI breakage should be solved upstream. It's not a distribution issue it's a lazy fricking developer can't be asked to get off their ass and update their software to the latest Ffmpeg API issue.

    It's 2024 and people still think using less than 100mb of ram is like a win or something, they focus on optimizing way too much, when they should be letting shit just run. Nowadays you have 4K displays, icons, videos,themes, HDR, etc that require more power to run, but the Linux mentality is still stuck in 1998 or something.

    there's a bunch of things linux needs
    first is proper sandboxing with fine grain permissions
    they need to tidy up the root folder hierarchy and really do an audit of all the packages, I bet you could reduce about half of the dependencies in a standard disto and everything would run much faster
    quite a few linux projects need to be totally replaced like gnome, gimp and wayland

    there's an article called 'main linux problems on the desktop' that 4ch refuses to link to
    you can find it on google, it lists many problems that are still unresolved
    also the lunduke 'linux sucks' video presentations raise many valid points, they used to be on youtube, now they're on his locals site, but still free

    The problem with packaging goes hand in hand with the Filesystem hierarchy and issues with packaging. Linux needs a new modern filesystem and better way of packaging, which allows multiple versions of the same package, and fixes the mess that is /usr and /lib.

      there's extremely little practical use for having multiple versions of applications installed at the same time
      multiple versions of the same library is useful though, and that's something that is possible as it is (there's no reason applications can't be provided in multiple versions as well, in some cases this is done as well, like python 2 and python 3 for example)
      if you want multiple versions of anything regardless there is always nix/nixos
