    So the guide directs towards github and implies I have to create a wine prefix?

    Okay, so what does that have to do with me trying to install the Microsoft Media Foundation?

    I am trying to install the ms media foundation using the Protontricks gui, and I get this error message. What does it mean?

    Hehehe, go drinking all night like I did last thursday and come back with something like that dumb comment I posted before. Too late in the day to go to bed, see if your brain is working enough for you to learn anything.o_O I take it back... I did learn something, I learned what kernel panic...

    Another way to enjoy Linux gaming

    To be fair, I inherited a third of my family's house, where my part was 111 years old and to be torn down. My whole family kind of stayed together and made apartments out of our own parts of the house. Very low overhead with bills like that. But I'm paying a heavy price to be able afford all...

    I see. I would think the kernel could identify that there is an issue with said service and at the very least assert that it isn't loading as it should. After all, debian is prized for its stability...

    Today's article is about finding the processes that slow down your boot time...

    I'm in the login screen usually by the time my monitor powers on, and this is on a 7 year old pci-e 3.0 prototype rev3 m.2 storage system. Unless I go poking around in the kernel, whatever I add to boot seems to activate after I'm already in my desktop environment. What could possible slow...

    Here I go again...

    I know it seems a bit silly for me to mention it at this point, but if the terminal is causing issues due to your lack of knowledge, then why not use a visual interface instead? Maybe even boot a live distro of something simple... like Lubuntu? I know you want to learn, but if your drive is...

    Another way to enjoy Linux gaming

    I build me a house and I am still in the process of furbishing it. My room is adjacent to the living room and I have left a hole the wall with the express purpose of connecting the pc to the living room by cable. Lets see if I have picture to show... Yes. When the time comes, there will be...

    Gpu market gone to the crapper?

    But I do judge. While those that buy it say "its no concern of ours", that is actually not true. The willingness of individuals to purchase products at unreasonable prices acts as an endorsement, a furtherance of excessively high pricing for which others, who are unable or unwilling to spend as...

    Gpu market gone to the crapper?

    So then RE7 is the scariest you can think of? How about Alien: Isolation in VR? Too scary? which brings me back to the issue of my topic. You claim gpu's are too powerful, but truth be told, they are merely following the tech advancements of visual display, such as high fidelity VR and 8K...

    Gpu market gone to the crapper?

    Look, guys, if you won't take my word for it, then take it from him: He is an international expert analyst of hardware performance. He checks for everything, sometimes even dissecting hardware with a laser to check the build quality; Like some lunatic that spent his ad revenue to build a messed...

    Gpu market gone to the crapper?

    If you don't happen to own a VR, go in front of an 8k display, and go so close that your eyes are roughly 3cm from the screen. You will see pixels, even if ever so slightly. VR is just like a new girlfriend. When butterflies in the stomach settle down and you're examining the relationship up...

    easy installation info for non-tech-savvy PC owner?

    USB drives have gotten about as cheap as going out on a pint with your buddies. You don't need very much storage space for an installation media, many can even be burned to a dvd. So you're not short on options there. As a guy who is layman, don't be stubborn and make things difficult for...

    Gpu market gone to the crapper?

    I started, once again, actively tracking advances in pc hardware about a year ago, when my pc started showing signs of no longer being up to the task for my needs. I am appaled on how low things have fallen. Graphics cards are overpriced, oversized, unreliable, and cable-busting hungry. My old...

    Who are REvil, the Russia-backed hacker group thought to be behind the Medibank data breach?

    Or a turncoat. Got an offer he... "couldn't refuse".
