Doesn’t want to give Microsoft access to his computer but is installing poorly researched chips directly in to human brains

If only Elmo had the money for an Enterprise license …

What Elmo needs is KMS38.

Please gods, don’t let Elon musk become a Linux evangelist

Starlink already uses Linux the whole way up the stack. It’s only a matter of time lol

On a different note.

I tried to install debian.

I will exclude my attempts to install debian Trixie since it is still in development however the net install doesn’t seem to be working at all.

So I tried debian bookworm the live disc. It did install fine. Everything worked until I first booted the system. All I could see was some (fuck you Nvidia) Nvidia errors and that it couldn’t start the ssdm so it threw me into the tty however debian per default disables the root account or whatever and the other account wasn’t in sudoers file yet. So I couldn’t log in into tty.

New install borked and no way of fixing Nvidia drivers…

So I used the normal image of debian. Then it worked.

Yeah, kernel is currently incompatible with driver. I’m manually booting -17 currently.

if a user is not in the sudoers login as root and edit your /etc/sudoers. look for the line that starts with “root ALL =…” copy and paste it below with root replaced with your username

edit: nevermind I missed the part that said disabled the root account. that’s weird not sure why you wouldn’t be able to access root unless maybe a typo during password creation

Nah debian on first install disabled tty completely. Probably sth. That gets setup later but it crashed before that

Ahh, the quintessential debian initiation, welcome to the club.

It isn’t the first time for me installing debian, but back then you hadn’t even the option of a live disk or sth like that.

Stop giving Elon attention

Agree. Even if you think it’s relevant or want to make a funny at his expense.

He desperately, like the despot he is, wants to stay relevant but let him become a blip in time. Fade into obscurity.

Wow, even ruptured douche balloons are getting sick of Microsoft’s shit.

If he’s so smart, why can’t he use GNU/Linux?

Please, let’s not have Linux communities flooded by fascists and cryptobros that inevitably follow in his wake

You don’t have to worry about that, they’re way to stupid to install their own OS.

I had a similar issue with my laptop. Didn’t know at the time what the button to press to open system settings was. So I had to go through the whole win11 set-up process before plugging in my green beater drive to get the new OS on it.

Just opened a twitter link and it won’t allow me to see it unless I create an X account and give all my data to their AI.

He must be aware of the parallels between Twitter and MS?

He must be just generating publicity for himself.

Judging by how much of a dumbass he is, I doubt he realizes this irony.

There used to be Nitter project, but it seems to be dead.

Some instances still work, but they’re getting rate limited left, right and center.

This is not cool of Twitter.

Yeah, they gave up recently after X, formerly known as Twitter, again and again and again shut down the methods Nitter used to get the posts.

I reported it 🙃

Why is “the most incompetent fascist alive can’t use Windows” a Linux meme?

You guys kept upvoting all the “Windows vs Linux” memes.

This is a Windows instance now

It’s nice to have an alternative… whatever that alternative might be… some of us do dual boot.

Oh no!

If only there was a non-Windows alternative.

OMG! Elon you should totally direct your minions of big brain programmers to create a new OS… XOS? About 6 months oughta be enough time to crank that out.

XOS belongs to Transsion, for its Infinix line of smartphones using the Android skin.

I bet if he did try to make his own OS, he’d buy the rights to the name XOS. That, or he’d just do something that doesn’t make the list for dumbest things he’s ever done but is still really dumb and just use another random letter instead of X.

Pretty sure that’s exactly how Apple got to name iOS the same as Cisco’s IOS without getting obliterated by a trademark lawsuit.

Hmmm… maybe he can use OS X!

I’d unironically like to see that.

Using another windows pc, make an 11 install USB by downloading Rufus USB. Then use it to download the English international windows 11 iso. After pressing start or whatever you get iption to remove online account, remake a local account, and remove system requirements as well as privacy questions etc.

Once installed, go to revi.cc and download the playbook and the Windows AME tool to “ameliorate” windows of all its bloat.

Sit back and enjoy a fast and local windows.

Finally, a sane person!

Or just use a easy to use linux distro and you have less headache than that.

For those of us that need to dual boot that is.

You can do it using a single terminal command run during set-up. No special images or imaging software required.

However, the point is not whether it is possible, but why it is so unnecessarily difficult. I think that question is easy to answer.

You can also install windows without an internet connection.

Not anymore. The last version of Windows 11 I installed on bare metal did not allow the trick when you just turn off the WiFi. I had to Shift+F10 to get to the command prompt, enter “oobe\bypassnro”, then reboot before it would allow a local account.

You can, by using the terminal trick I was referring to. If you simply try to set it up without connecting it to WiFi or Ethernet, it will not let you go past that screen until you connect to a network.

I love that Rufus, just a simple bootable (not for Windows specifically) USB maker software, specifically targets a single piece of software (Win11) and offers you to install those mods. I find that kind of beautiful.

I am so bummed that it doesn’t have a Linux port! None of the tools for Linux have those tweaks in them!
