Re: What's the max memory which can be used by a processor

Looks like 64 bit CPU doesn't mean 64 bit address line but only 64 bit data lines. Sure. There are two somewhat competing definitions for bitness of a CPU; the first in which such is decided by width of general purpose registers, the second by width of addresses/address registers. The former is in ...

Re: What's the max memory which can be used by a processor

Am i missing something? The manner in which your Ryzen 5 2500U is 64-bit is, 1, architecturally and, 2, virtually. 1. The AMD64 architecture allows for CPUs that support an up to 64-bit virtual address space. 2. The AMD64 architecture allows for CPUs that support an up to 52-bit physical address sp...

Actually I expect the .pkla method to work even back on 17.2 but potentially using a different Action=. You can find out which action is being requested by clicking open "details" on the authentication dialogue you get when clicking "unlock". But yes, other than that, you might have mentioned using ...

Re: Dual boot LM19 on Win7 32 bit PC

The above is not really correct: the standard 32-bit linux kernel directly maps only (a bit less than) 1G of RAM directly and uses the remainder in slower "highmem" mode, mapping and unmapping pages from it as needed. 4G in fact moreover only features as a per-process limit since 8 years or so, sinc...

In that case my provider will not be available to you anyway, but I'm on very stable 250/25 Mbit/s cable.

Re: Trying to add a command to a program

The VAR=value command syntax is shell syntax and indeed unavailable from a .desktop launcher. You can use the command env as an intermediary and have the .desktop command be env ANKI_WEBSCALE=0.5 anki or just set that environment variable from your global or per-user startup files; i.e., just add ex...

Re: alias .='cd ..'

Apparently something still sourcing ~/.bash_aliases. Any and all debugging of specifics here however really is moot (and rather uninteresting). Redefining "." to mean something completely non-standard is something which you should really just not do: even without all the dot-sourcing the standard st...

So yea, it is very weird :? Not very, really. I suppose you added the alias for . at the end of the ls aliases in ~/.bashrc?

Re: Microsoft destroyed my LUKS encrypted drive!!!!

Serves you right for making the mistake of assuming your computer still belongs to you rather than Microsoft after installing Windows to it. I.e., I quite advise not dual-booting but using a secondary system for your Windows needs instead. If not this hasn't been the last time you run into something...
