    Start with network interface disabled on Linux

    This post was 8 days after the last one. I am at a public Wi-Fi and I realize that having to manually soft-block my network card before powering off, or risk displaying my default MAC address, is kinda a pain. I find comfort in being able to safely power off my computer at any time, without...

    Start with network interface disabled on Linux

    Sorry if this is a necro, it was 15 days after the last post, but I found a solution to my problem after some digging. RFKILL allows me to soft block my phy0 card without disabling my Ethernet access, using sudo rfkill block phy0. RFKILL status is persistent, meaning I can reboot and not worry...

    Start with network interface disabled on Linux

    I currently don't use NetworkManager. I tried installing it just to put your option into /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf, and it didn't seem to change anything. Also, this option looks like it may work by not disabling the interface, rather just preventing the interface from connecting...

    Steam reports no errors but cannot boot into GUI.

    Idk if commenting this much is against the rules, but I think I know a plausible solution: Gamemode may be the problem. The previous time I had Steam break, I noticed that Steam fixed itself whenever I reinstalled packages in the Chris Titus Tech Ultimate Linux Gaming Guide, and the last section...

    Steam reports no errors but cannot boot into GUI.

    Ok, so after screwing around with random things in an unhealthy panic (The last thing I tried doing was reinstalling Gamemode, a program I use with my Steam games), I got Steam to boot up into a UI, but this problem is NOT solved. This has happened before, and it will inevitably happen again, so...

    Steam reports no errors but cannot boot into GUI.

    Hello. I posted a thread about a similar problem to this one, and found that the solution was to install some packages according to a guide on the Internet. It turns out that Steam working after that was merely a coincidence. I am now randomly experiencing the problem, and I am yet again lost...

    [SOLVED] Tried to install a different video driver, now Steam doesn't work

    I just realized this forum is pretty small. I see about 500 non-logged in users at once, but as far as accounts that are logged in at once, I typically only see a few. Sometimes I even may be the only one online. Very interesting... usually when I see a public service on the Internet I imagine...

    Keeping Your Linux System Secure In An Insecure World

    I see the former on my screen. That may be a glitch on your end, or maybe it was fixed before I came here.

    [SOLVED] Tried to install a different video driver, now Steam doesn't work

    SOOO another funny story... I fixed Xorg. The solution was simple, deleting the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf; Xorg actually works fine without it. The reason I think this problem was caused is the Nvidia driver creating xorg.conf upon configuration, which broke my system. I am so happy, just...

    Here is the Device section: Section "Device" Identifier "Device0" #exact Driver "nvidia" VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation" EndSection Any other sections you need? EDIT from after Xorg works: I deleted Xorg.conf to fix the problem but I still saved it: # nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file...

    [SOLVED] Tried to install a different video driver, now Steam doesn't work

    So using Neofetch I can get a more basic interpretation of my GPU model: GPU: NVIDIA GeForce MX150 GPU: Intel UHD Graphics 620 Plus I now know how to verify that my computer is running the Nvidia drivers, so it actually seems plausible that this is a driver misconfiguration. Xorg just says what...
