@lies damnlies Again, I've used linux for 2 years, and though it never got as bad as what Linus had here, it certaintly was a bitch to use full of weird issues. Was Ubuntu in eh.. 2014 or so? I've never had any software on windows outright break my computer, nor have I heard of it ever happening tbh, except of course malware designed to do it.
MaxArceus Yıl önce
@seeibe Alright, that would be okay, and probably interesting yeah. I thought people wanted to see breakdown of 'what went wrong'.
seeibe Yıl önce
@MaxArceus I think you're wrong there. Neither Linus or Luke made any mistakes. But it'd be entertaining to see what kind of crazy tech knowledge Anthony would have to bring out to fix the problems Linus was having. Also it'd be entertaining to see Anthony realize how difficult some things can be for regular people that he takes for granted.
Strule Yıl önce
as a Linux user for more than 10 years, that error Linus had is totally on the developer side, Linus did what any first time user would do. The part where he follows an online tutorial and it says "sure, type the Yes, do as I say" is a classy rookie mistake
Maciej Sopyło
Maciej Sopyło Yıl önce
@Strule You have two, or even more types of systems, like you say. But fundamentally it's still GNU/Linux and it will still allow you to screw up if you want (actually it's more of the GNU part that allowed that, the kernel had nothing to do with that ;p). And if you lock that down completely, you limit the ability of the user to try new stuff as he gains experience. When I started using Linux I was scared of the terminal, now the only GUI app I use is the browser (and some game dev stuff). If I had to install another distro to try anything advanced I might have gone back to Windows.

@Max Maria Wacholder desktop environment is a part from system files and it should not be easily deleted because the user wanted to install an app its not like i hate linux i love the idea behind linux and tried to daily drive it 10 years ago and i use on on diffrent pcs but for a normal user its not easy to deal with that kind of issues that should not happend in 1st place
bierrollerful Yıl önce
@IsoMacintosh The underlying issue was that a bad package had dependencies that were conflicting with installed packages (pop-desktop etc.) - which then had to be removed before the installation could begin. It wasn't like the OS removed the desktop environment for shits and giggles; it was the package that _required the OS to remove the DE_ for the wrong/bugged reasons (there are good reasons to remove DEs). In that sense, it *is* like installing a bad driver/windows update and then blaming the OS for being unsuable.
EoS Yıl önce
@IsoMacintosh did you read the channel addendum? The package was broken for a few hours, Linus unfortunately tried to install it at that time without having updated the system prior. It's a bug sure. But the delivery system did its job as intended.
IsoMacintosh Yıl önce
@bierrollerful No, downloading program A and then having system feature Y get removed is not comparable to GPU drivers breaking the GPU. And the fact that it got fixed doesn't change the fact that installing steam on windows would never have this sort of issue.

@John The Cooling Fan In Linux's case, sure. Not that 99+% of the population care, they'll think their computer is broken. And I disagree if we're talking about Windows, macOS, Android or iOS. The GUI is absolutely part of the product one would call the “operating system” there.

@bob bob I'm not very familiar with popos or most of ubuntu derivatives, but I believe that steam package in official app store is kinda broken and incompatible with important system packages. Linus has been warned *multiple times* that continuing can have serious consequences, but he just ignored these warnings. From what I heard in other places, flatpak version of steam would be the way to go. Flatpak installs and runs applications in little containers that are isolated from the host, so there is no conflict. Of course it's popos devs fault that steam package conflicts with system packages. And this is not the case for at least Arch-based distros, where steam and discord can be acquired from distro's app store with 1 click. I hope distro developers/maintainers will see this video or at least will get reports of the issues highlighted here.

​@MrOscar Exactly. My experiences with Linux can be summed up as following: 1. I want to do something. 2. Try to do it by myself. 3. Fail. 4. Google a solution. 5. Oooh it's so obvious, let me try that very easy 3 step guide. 6. Somehow the solution fails on the very first step. 7. Google some more. Only get vague results in obscure places on the Internet. Finally get someone who experienced a similar problem and has figured out somehow that you first need to install some weird system components that no newb would ever even know about. 8. Install those components - somehow it goes smoothly. 9. Try the Google solution again. 10. Finally it works just as advertised. 11. I want to do something else... ... ... 31. Back to Windows!

@Grilled Flatbread There is a large difference between pointing to Ukraine on an unmarked map (not even country borders) and pointing to "Europe" on a world map.

What Linus went through is pretty normal for someone new to Linux, it's just that most people don't share the mistakes they make while learning. Linus still had steam installed and a game up and running in one day on his second distro so it's not exactly like he had no clue, he just shows it all because it helps the video do better lol

@borkzilla well, yeas and no. Yes, Linus Torwalds has a say on anything that goes into the kernel. But the development are done all over the world. What people usually call OS, is the desktop and distribution. And there you have lots of different settings. So that is what Linus asked for, to be controlled and all should work on the same software. There are no way in hell that you will make all Gnome developers to start work in KDE, or on the other direction. Make all KDE work on Gnome. And what is clearly a better solution? I would say that I like Gnome way much more then KDE. As KDE is a maze of setting, that you need to change to have a working DE. And then you have all other software, that people work on. And no, there are not that many distributions that are suitable for beginners. It basically is Ubuntu, Mint, Pop! OS, Fedora. That is it. And about DE, well that is KDE and Gnome. There you have beginners combinations. And as I wrote, anyone that suggest any other distribution to a beginner, should also give them their phone number and support 24/7/365. (and that is half serious) :-)
Post-MIA Yıl önce
@No One Interesting, Idk might be cause people are lazy and dont want to do the work them selves, sometimes people ask for someone to resolve their problems without ever exerting their own time and effort to figure out the issue themselves. I would genially ask the community for help when I'm really stuck. Thinking back to it, I think this is quite good as through self trouble shooting you can begin to understand the software more and more and actually learn to use the software, as oppose to just being thrown the answer which many people are used to no in days. Than again you can argue people dont want to learn linux, just like people never learned windows and just want to load an os and play their games or surf the web with very minimal troubleshooting.
Anders Jackson
Anders Jackson Yıl önce
@visualdarkness I beg to differ. At least not without the pre configured installation image from the manufacturer. So again, if you don't want to go into the command line, buy a pre configured machine with Linux installed. By the way, this was what Linus went out of his way to do, by going out to the command line, when he didn't needed to. *WARNING: The following essential packages will be removed.* *This should NOT be done unless you know exactly what you are doing!* *'You are about to do something potentially harmful. To continue type in the phrase 'Yes, do as I say! '* ** If you write "Yes, do as I say!", then it isn't a mistake what you want to do. And yes, there ARE legitimit use of this, when you actually want to do this that Linus asked the package manager to do. If he had not forced his will onto the package manager, and convinced it that he knew what he did, he would still been running Pop! OS.
Xersize 23 gün önce
As someone who never used Linux before and then daily drove Pop for about a year, you did fine. It took me 3 tries to actually install it (because I'm not at all computer savvy, so that's 100% on me, not on either Linux as a whole or pop!_OS), but being fairly bad at computers in general it was a fun experience. I learned a lot during that year, there was a lot of new things, and problems, to experience when you've used only Windows for 30 years but with googling and asking friends, I actually managed to do everything I usually do on a computer, including gaming.

​@Alex Davis Apologies if you'd replied, I didn't click through 400 comments to find yours. Not sure what attention anyone expects to get in TRvid comments. Do you think Linus is above courting common tricks for more revenue (he's basically running a tech-nerd clickbait channel); the bigger the channel the more temptation, surely? I guess plenty of ordinary users do dumb stuff, running random commands you don't understand, then disabling the protections, then acting surprised that things went badly [if you have backups experimenting helps you learn, breaking your system teaches you a lot]. Just Linus seemed before like he had more of a clue about computers. Did he do the install live, I could understand not paying enough attention to installing a novel OS if you were doing that, but it seems like what he did was far too measured to be idiocy. I guess either way it doesn't reflect well regardless of whether Pop!_OS should have behaved like this.

So for gaming, would Mint or Proton be better?

@James Healy Take the time to learn it. Give PopOS a try. Once you figure it out, and figure out just a little bit of bash/terminal, you will never want to use Windows again. Linus made a boo-boo because there was a problem with Steam and PopOS at the time, which was fixed pretty quickly but he wasn't aware of it. Other than that, you saw how easily it installed on his PC, easier and faster to install than Windows. Just make sure secure boot is disabled, and make sure Windows is "fully" shutdown (check the advanced power options) if your going to dual boot or Windows will mess with your Linux boot-up.

This almost happened to me once (but unlike Linus I stopped before deleting my entire DE), when I tried to reinstall an older package (after a system update kindly "updated" the KDE default theme to look completely different). I "fixed" it by force installing *both* conflicting packages with dpkg (apt wouldn't even let me do it 😊), but after that apt continued to whine about it every time I installed something. Finally I gave up, installed the "new" package, extracted the files from the old one and just overwrote the new files with the old one. Problem solved. Moral of the story: always use the most powerful tool in your arsenal.

@Diego At the very least it should be handled differently from other packages. If you want to uninstall your window manager then that should be a separate command and not happen as a side-effect of installing an application.

My experience usually starts off about as badly as Luke's. And when I load the virtual machines back up after a few months of not using them, then they likely behave more like they did with Linus. That is, if they even load back up, when they worked just fine the last time I used them.

The biggest problem is that those articles assume your package manager has a working steam installer. I've had other problems where a lesser used package was just so out of date it didn't work. The workaround is getting .Deb packages or whatever and installing those, but this seems to be generally discouraged.

Mint always sounded like the Linux distro that suited me best and glad that one of them is using it to give me a feel for it. For my next computer I plan maining Linux because I've been getting sick of Windows BS and it looks like Windows 11 is going to be the thing that final gets me to migrate. However, I think that I'm gonna set it up so that it can dual boot into Windows for the applications that I just can't get to work in Linux or just don't have the patience or time to make work.

Use "display" to configure your dual monitors in Linux Mint, it's a lot like Windows when you configure that part.

You guys did a great job with setting up Linux. I'm currently doing the same challenge because of the steam deck. I started with pop os and I had a similar experience as Linus but I was able to install the pop os desktop to get the desktop back. I did try to daily drive pop os in a dual boot setting with windows but pop os didnt feel right to me so I switch to kubuntu. Kubuntu is my favorite distro because of the stock kde with plasma and its similar to windows. Audio can be difficult in Linux but it works great once it's working. Thank you Linus and Luke for doing this video.

CFWhitman Yıl önce
@Saba Siwach This is largely not an issue for NVIDIA users. Of course, if you want to be bleeding edge, then a rolling distro will do that for you. The alternative in Ubuntu would be to install a PPA for the packages you wanted to be more up to date, or to use Flatpaks or Snaps for end user application software.
Deoxal Yıl önce
@Christopher Pedersen Well I guess this is a good case for the Android / iOS model where you can't modify the system image with a package manager. There is Fedora Silverblue and a few others but I wonder if at scale it's impossible to give users freedom with that model. I suppose in the near term we could make it so package managers don't need sudo to install and uninstall anything that doesn't need root like Steam but to install another DE or go terminal only, you would need sudo. Also if Steam could go Flatpak or AppImage by default that would be nice.

For new linux users: Linux isn't really an operating system that has one distro for all needs. However, even though there are many distro's, your decision shouldn't lean on Ubuntu or Fedora because of their compatibility info given by forums or blogs. It should be your decision because of how well you can adapt to it. Try out Ubuntu, Manjaro, Debian (Mostly Debian Based Distro's), Arch, or others and see what you like. There could be amazing features in some, you just wont know unless you try.
ditsie Yıl önce
its a good thing you switched to Manjaro, now we're basically comparing Arch vs Debian. Pop is Debian too, so it wouldn't be as interesting. High hopes these videos will contribute to some necessary changes to Linux, as a Linux user who prefers GUI's I think it's necessary

I have a new computer now with the latest Nvidia GPU. I chose the "recommended" option for drivers in Linux Mint. They didn't work. I did a web search about it, but I could clearly see my pc was not using my GPU. I just went to Nvidia, chose the graphics card and OS, downloaded it and then realised it was between the options that I could have chosen. I did this and everything went perfect. Just a reminder for people that always follow the OS "hint".
