Based on the information you've provided you indeed have tmpfs filesystems mounted at /tmp and /dev/shm which are not shown by top or other similar utilities. Please, monitor these mount points usage via df and clean up data or stop applications (some applications create files and delete them right away, so such file won't be seen but will still take space) ...

Perfectly normal. Linux, Windows and most other OSes like to cache everything they can. Memory is being used, but its not locked to that content. It can be freed and replaced with something else as fast as the disk reads roll. You should only see lots of free memory when a big process (or a set of collectively big processes) just ended.

The workaround was first proposed in Manjaro forum, and then in Arch Linux Arm forum. One has to symlink /usr/lib/libopenblas.so.3 with the non existent /usr/lib/libblas.so.3. sudo ln -s /usr/lib/libopenblas.so.3 /usr/lib/libblas.so.3

Probably during the migration process from tracker to track3 something goes wrong. Clean tracker database ($ tracker3 reset) and any leftover file ($ rm -rf ~/.cache/tracker{,3})

No knowledge of this, but sounds like your problem is seen here https://bodhi.fedoraproject.org/updates/FEDORA-2020-05238e0153 So you might want to try the 'solution' seen there i.e. downgrade / upgrade

Install these packages: pulseaudio alsa-utils For bluetooth: pulseaudio-bluetooth bluez bluez-utils As well as this program (execute it, to set one of your microphones as default): pavucontrol And this program for bluetooth (not needed, but I find it very useful): blueman

Probably should have looked harder before asking :-) This is what I did: Backed up /boot/grub/grub.cfg Edited the timeout to 15 seconds from 5 to give me enough time Added a menu entry at the top (before Arch Linux) with the setting: menuentry "Shutdown" { halt } Saved grub.cfg Now whenever the computer boots I have 15 seconds to hit down ...

On e.g. Ubuntu 20.10 the hplip package will actually run with PyQt5 (python3-pyqt5). Same on Arch, the hplip package version 3.21.2-1 uses Qt 5. So, no need to install Qt 4. The used Qt version is actually configured in /etc/hp/hplip.conf: [configure] ui-toolkit=qt5 qt3=no qt4=no qt5=yes When I run hp-check it does mention that PyQt4 could not be found, but ...

Do I have to move the Arch partition Yes, partitions can't be resized to the left, so you need to move it to the start of the free space and then resize it. GParted can do that, use the Partition → Resize/Move option. This operation can't be done on a mounted filesystem, you need to use a LiveCD. It will take some time, because all data on the partition ...

Another way to improve Chrome's behavior is to simply configure the JavaScript heap limits. Add this to the command line when starting Chrome: --js-flags="--max_old_space_size=80 --max_semi_space_size=80" This tells the JavaScript GC to limit memory usage to under 160M Of course you can change the numbers for your specific situation.

Windows is more or less standardized by Microsoft, so the Autoruns utility is just one for all versions of Windows. Linux on the desktop is not standardized at all and no such tool exists. For system services you have Systemd, SysVinit, upstart and many others all with their own distinct configurations. For X.org you have /etc/X11/xinit/* - for Wayland you'...

Manjaro Gnome after installing updates and rebooting I could not open terminal and after installing deepin terminal I got the above message.

I've run into this problem before when installing a new desktop environment; it happened when I forget to enable my new one. Try sudo systemctl -f enable gdm.service if you have gnome installed also or do the same thing except can gdm.service with your previous Display Manager (ex. sudo systemctl -f enable sddm.service) I hope this helps!

Seem to have fixed it. All I did is just remove the device and then rescanned and it works. I have not rebooted yet but will see how that goes.

stefan0xC gave the correct hints. I will answer myself after the comment by Jeff Schaller. Just add: export KRB5CCNAME=path in your .xinitrc (before launching a window manager, in my case i3), where path is the path to the krbcache file.

First setup hibernation on arch, https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Power_management/Suspend_and_hibernate#Hibernation Then create a udev rule to hibernate on low battery percentage, https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/laptop#Hibernate_on_low_battery_level Haven't tested the udev rule myself but should work.

You can restart with advanced restart option in windows 10 and if the bootable usb is detected, you can choose to boot from the live image. shortcut to boot to bios can be anything from esc/f10/f12 etc.

How can a BIOS update affect my EFI boot? In UEFI, each installed OS is supposed to have their own boot variable stored in the NVRAM used for firmware settings. I've seen some UEFI firmware updates cause those NVRAM variables to be lost. It should not happen; yet, you should be aware that this can happen and know how to fix it. Most Linux distributions that ...

Orphaned can mean two things: An AUR package is unmaintained A package was installed as a dependency but is no longer required by any package pacman -Qdt lists all packages meeting the second criteria but I do not recommend removing all of them.

I'm not sure if this counts as a solution since it seems like a bit of a workaround. However, it worked for me. Instead of using xfce4-screenshooter's clipboard option directly, use a clipboard manager like xclip. For example: xfce4-screenshooter -rs /dev/stdout | xclip -selection clipboard -type image/png At that point I think I would prefer to use maim, ...

I've also faced this problem but I got the solution: Open Add or Remove Softwares and got to Preferences and than change your official repositories to Canada than Refresh mirror lists It may work now

Yes, but you need to use the Arch User Repository (AUR). Follow the instructions in the Arch Wiki (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_User_Repository) and then you can install it with your favorite AUR client. For example: $ trizen -Ss libtcod aur/libtcod 1.15.1-1 [unmaintained] [28+] [0.00%] [22 May 2020] Roguelike graphics/utility library aur/...

If you are new to (Arch) Linux and just want to know how to enable NTP, just do timedatectl set-ntp true and that's it.

Difficult one. I would do the following: enable frequent time-stamping in your syslog mount your syslog with synchronous mount-options (sync) Perhaps you can see when this is happening, and what is logged just before that.

I would recommend installing Cadence from the KXStudio repositories and have it Auto-Start Jack at login, including PulseAudio & ALSA bridges. Works fine for me.

You might be able to do this with PipeWire instead of PulseAudio. Comment from Ric @tornado99: On arch-based distros: uninstall pulseaudio-bluetooth force uninstall just pulseaudio without removing any dependencies, so sudo -Rdd pulseaudio install pipewire and pipewire-pulse edit /etc/pipewire/media-session.d/bluez-monitor.conf to allow mSBC make sure you ...

I have the same problem after a recent update. I am no expert but I guess something wrong with the locale settings. I fixed it by regenerating the locale settings as shown here: Open a terminal with Ctrl + Alt + F3 In /etc/locale.gen add/uncomment en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8 then run with sudo: locale-gen Then my gnome terminal is functional again.

If you only want to control rhythmbox then rhythmbox-client --play to play the song or rhythmbox-client --pause to pause the song should be enough. But I found this software called playerctl in some Arch wiki which control the currently playing media.

This is an old question. The question has many other questions in it. Why we need GPT, to have more partitions and separate boot (UEFI) on the disk as well as more support for big disk sizes. MBR table format is not, can be corrupted easier than GPT. Most recent systems are supporting UEFI. If you don't want to use it or you couldn't install an OS with UEFI, ...

As mentioned already, a stack is a generic data type, there are likely a number of stack implementations on any given general-purpose OS. There is no single stack that would be the stack, unless perhaps you're a system level programmer, in which case the hardware call stack is probably it. Maybe. OpenSSL has a stack.h, the library implements a stack data ...

The term "stack" is overloaded. Some possible interpretations include: A "stack" is an abstraction over a set of data structures that provide Last-In-First-Out (LIFO) access to the elements that it contains. There are realizations of the "stack" abstraction. The linked-list based stack that you developed in your class is one ...

It looks like you missed a step or somehow misunderstood a step. You have posted a text file in your question claiming it is your boot.efi. But that file should be a binary.

It sounds like the problem is your Mac isn't recognizing your bootloader files. The guide you linked is from 2013 so it's a bit outdated- there's really no need for a seperate /boot partition, so you should delete /dev/sda4 and mount the Mac's EFI as /boot instead when installing with mkdir /mnt/boot && mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot Also, instead of ...

The behaviour suggests your session script is failing for some reason. See if your home directory now contains a ~/.xsession-errors file; if it does, it contains the error messages from your session processes. Also, use df -h to check that the filesystem(s) containing your home directory and $TMPDIR are not 100% full; starting a X11 session requires creating ...

No, grub-install does not format the ESP. The ESP must be already mounted. grub-install does overwrite grubx64.efi (variants exist depending on architecture).

Sorry I cannot give you a thorough answer, but I can assure you that installing GRUB on existing EFI partition does not format it. I have installed Arch on my laptop alongside Windows 10 and it worked flawlessly. The GRUB automatically recognize the Windows efi and added it to the boot list. By the way for a reference, I installed the GRUB by doing these ...
