Btrfs RAID1 on a laptop for bitrot protection?

Reddit - Tue, 2017-05-16 13:39

I'm considering adding a second HDD to my laptop solely for bitrot protection. What are some caveats to doing this? Increased battery consumption, temperature?, and weight are the only ones I can think of.

If anyone has any other suggestions for combating bitrot on a laptop, I am of course open to it :) Thanks!

What's the point of DevOps?

LXer - Tue, 2017-05-16 11:57
Think about the last time you tried to change a personal habit. You likely hit a point where you needed to alter the way you think and make the habit less a part of your identity. This is difficult—and you're only trying to change your own ways of thinking.So you may have tried to put yourself in new situations. New situations can actually help us create new habits, which in turn lead to new ways of thinking.read more

Increasing maximum Xorg virtual screen resolution beyond 8192x8192

Reddit - Tue, 2017-05-16 11:44

I'm currently attempting to get three 2560x1440 displays configured with my new desktop setup. Two monitors are external 25" screens, the other one is a built-in 14" HiDPI screen.

Unfortunately, xrandr reports:

$ xrandr | grep maximum Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 2560 x 1440, maximum 8192 x 8192

The post at https://www.reddit.com/r/linux/comments/33wrhx/maximum_resolution_of_x/ hints at being able to override the maximum using a custom xorg.conf:

Section "Device" Identifier "Configured Video Device" EndSection Section "Monitor" Identifier "Configured Monitor" EndSection Section "Screen" Identifier "Default Screen" Monitor "Configured Monitor" Device "Configured Video Device" SubSection "Display" Virtual 16384 16384 EndSubSection EndSection

Unfortunately, this does not seem to make any difference.

The issue happens with both a Lenovo T440p (Intel HD 4600) and T470p (Intel HD Graphics 630, Nvidia graphics disabled) both running ArchLinux (Kernel 4.10.13, Xorg 1.19.3).

Another comment mentions the texture size as being the limiting factor, but this does not seem to be the case for me:


Any ideas how to get this sorted out?

Differences between regex implementations?

Reddit - Tue, 2017-05-16 11:16

I just found a regex matching game on F-Droid which I thought would be a good way of getting regex more drilled into my brain.

It says it uses Perl syntax, as it is implemented in Java.

I'm vaguely aware of differences between various forms of regex, but don't know much about the differences. Is the Perl syntax different from that used by grep? Or in vim, or python? Are the differences significant? If grep, vim and python are the only environments in which I use regexes is it still worth sticking with this Perl-based game or will it just confuse things?
