GNU Linux bash – maximum best compression for binary data – xz (LZMA) vs zstd vs 7zip (7z) vs (parallel multi threaded multi core) bzip2 – why it is better to have A LOT of swap space (RAM 3x or 4x)

once upon a time, compressing massive amounts of binary was required. hostnamectl; # tested on Operating System: Debian GNU/Linux 12 (bookworm) Kernel: Linux 6.1.0-12-amd64 Architecture: x86-64 lscpu | grep -E ‘Architecture|Model name|Thread|Core’; # tested on CPU Architecture: x86_64 Model name: […]

GNU Linux (Debian) – how to – find the largest 30 duplicate files wasting disk space – multi line sorting madness (mlsm) – how to output x blocks of text separated by delimiter – build (Bill Poser’s and BSDs) msort from src

This is actually VERY usefull to find files that waste disk space. lsb_release -a; # tested on Distributor ID: Debian Description: Debian GNU/Linux 12 (bookworm) the solution: czkawka_cli install rust like this (no need to install rust as root) install […]

AMD Ryzen 5600G + Gigabyte Aorus B550 + 2x NVMe Kingston SA2000M81000G + RAID0 (AMD RAIDXpert2) worth it? does it work with GNU Linux? 8k Youtube Benchmark passed on GNU Linux Debian 11 MATE – enable enable SVM Mode in UEFI BIOS to enable KVM Virtualization support

update: 2024-04: system running well fastest AMD with integrated GPU would be: Ryzen 7 8700G (search bundle on ebay) the Ryzen 7 has more cores, so single core wise the CPUs are close to each other, multicore the 7 should […]

SAS connected NVMes aka Kingston’s datacenter capable (24-7) NVMe SSDs (DC 1500m Enterprise-class U.2 PCIe NVMe Gen 3.0 x4 SSD) only work with mainboard that have U.2 interface – U.2 on Desktop is called mini-SAS or SFF-8643 on Servers

IDE, SCSI, SATA, SAS now U.2 M.2… these drives are called: “U.2 PCIe NVMe” no kidding, search for em on ebay. that reminds of… “the usb cable chaos” has arrived with “Slim SAS” for another round of mass cable connector confusion […]
