Welcome to /tech/ THE RULES: 1. Please spoiler all porn and gore 2. Talk about something actually related to /tech/nology 3. Have fun! Required reading http://cryptome.org/2012/07/gent-forum-spies.htm Beginner Info If you would like to try out GNU/Linux because of https://itvision.altervista.org/why-windows-10-sucks.html, you can do one of the following: 0) Install a GNU/Linux distribution of your choice in a Virtual Machine (preferably using KVM or Oracle VirtualBox for newfriends). 1) Use a live image and to boot directly into the GNU/Linux distribution without installing anything (keep in mind that the performance of live distros might be very different than from distro that was booted from your HDD, as most distros are loaded in RAM and don't include the proprietary drivers for NVIDIA GPUs or up-to-date Mesa libraries in their isos). 2) Dual boot the GNU/Linux distribution of your choice along with Windows (make sure to install Windows first, as it can "replace" GRUB or other UNIX bootloaders, and troubleshooting of Windows replacing your bootloader of choice might be painful for people that just started learning about the Linux kernel) 3) Go balls deep and replace everything with GNU/Linux (you really shouldn't do this, if you don't know what you're putting yourself into, see: https://itvision.altervista.org/why.linux.is.not.ready.for.the.desktop.current.html). Resources: Use your web browser and search engine of choice. Good comparison between them is hosted here: https://digdeeper.neocities.org/ghost/browsers.html https://digdeeper.neocities.org/ghost/search.html If not sure which browser to choose, just use the Tor Browser Bundle: https://www.torproject.org/ or paste these commands to your terminal emulator of choice (please make sure to first learn what they're exactly doing): $ sudo apt install torbrowser-launcher (Debian, Ubuntu, Linux Mint or just simply apt-based distros) $ sudo pacman -S base-devel git go && git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/yay.git && cd yay && makepkg -si $ cd .. && rm -rf yay && yay -S tor-browser (pacman-based distros) $ xbps-install -S torbrowser-launcher (Void Linux) If you "bricked" yourself and can't launch Xorg/Wayland, then try installing an terminal-only browser like Lynx and using it troubleshoot your mistake.

Ubuntu, or it's flavors like Xubuntu, Kubuntu or even forks like Linux Mint (only LTS or LMDE) and KDE Neon (only LTS) - Focal Fossa 20.04 is the beta of the next LTS (long term support) release of Ubuntu and is scheduled for official release on April 23 2020 - Eoan Ermine 19.10 is the semi-rolling release of Ubuntu (still containing mostly stable and out-of-date packages) - Bionic Beaver 18.04 is the current LTS release of Ubuntu and thus is the most supported by corporations like Canonical (corporation behind Ubuntu) and it's partners, Valve, GOG.com and hardware manufactures in general. It just works™ 2. Debian GNU/Linux - Stable (“buster”) It's the stable/LTS and the "true" release of Debian. Contains a lot of outdated, but stable packages and is the easiest to install release of Debian. - Testing (“bullseye”) Is the testing release of Debian, which still contains a few outdated packages to be more stable. It's packages later go to the stable channel. - Unstable (“sid”) Is the rolling release of Debian and with the help of Debian Experimental, can be nearly as rolling as Arch or even Gentoo. It's packages after enough testing (usually a week) later go to the testing channel. >How do I install Debian's experimental packages? https://wiki.debian.org/DebianExperimental If you want something that has insane support and one of the largest communities out there, or just simply something that gives users more choices than Ubuntu, then this is the distro for you. 3. Arch Linux Is a rolling distro with a semi-minimalistic approach to GNU/Linux, meaning you install it only from the console itself with pre-compiled binary packages (packages that are ready to install). Can be easily broken, if the end-user doesn't know how to avoid troubleshooting it. It's primary audience are users that want bigger control of their system. and people who want to stay on the most-up-to-date versions of their favorite programs. Good for learning how GNU/Linux works. 4. Manjaro Linux/EndeavourOS Are forks of Arch Linux with the Calameres installer. Manjaro has it's own repositories, with package release channel similar to Debian's, while EndeavourOS tries to stay as close to Arch as it is possible. Decent, if you're one of those people which never read manuals. 5. Gentoo GNU/Linux Is a distro that is very similar to Arch, but is much more stable and up-to-date thanks to you getting in control of configuring and compiling everything from the source code. Is also much harder/longer to setup than Arch's installation process, but compiling everything from it's source can result in overall better performance of programs that you use daily. Nothing can beat it when it comes to avoiding systemd. Perfect for learning how your UNIX systems actually work. 6. Linux From Scratch (LFS), Guix or NixOS if somehow Gentoo didn't made you comfy with it, then with these distros you possibly can't get comfier except if you make the switch to BSD-based systems.

BitChan Beta v0.9.0 Release

The BitChan beta just got released and is looking for people to try it out. It's a decentralized imageboard that runs on top of BitMessage. You can create and completely control your own public or private board, globally moderate as an owner, add admins who can also globally moderate, moderate your own instance locally as a user, upload literally anything with size limits theoretically up to 100gb. Uploads can be sent purely over BitMessage or you can choose to use a hosting service. Uploads that use hosting are subjected to heavy duty protection: every file is zipped, encrypted/password protected, the zip's header is removed and random chunks of the file are removed before being uploaded. The removed parts are hidden in the PGP encrypted message that's sent over BitMessage. Once the upload is received the zip is put back together again, decrypted, unzipped and displayed in the thread. 100% of BitChan traffic happens over tor. Private boards prevent posting from all but explicitly added IDs. The permitted ID list can be edited by the owner at any point to include new IDs or restrict old ones. On public boards any ID can post until it is banned, but because of how BitMessage works, you can always just make another ID. Communications on every board are PGP encrypted. This means that even if someone somehow guessed the board name on BitMessage (basically impossible for reasons I won't go into here), they would be unable to read anything without also having the BitChan PGP symmetric password. Owners can globally change CSS, banners and wordfilters. Owners can even wipe a board if they want. You can join and create as many boards as you want. There's also a prototype steganography thread running alongside of every normal thread. The steg thread shows decrypted steg from jpg/pngs. There are also public and private lists. Lists are just collections of links to boards or other lists. Owners can do much of the same moderation, CSS changes etc. as they can do on boards. They can be updated and edited after their creation. BitChan is fully dockerized so it is cross-OS compatible, but has only been tested with Ubuntu 20.04 and the most recent version of Whonix. I could go on about all the features (there's a lot more), but I just wanted to give you a taste. It's surprisingly fast for text only messages that total around 20kb or less and using hosting services for file attachments, taking usually only a few seconds to a minute depending on how many people are on your part of the BitMessage network. https://github.com/813492291816/BitChan

Robi's MultiScraper tool seems promising but broken (at least for me)

Not sure if this is the place to post this. Perhaps someone can give me some pointers, I attempted to use the MultiScraper tool that Robi wrote to do some board migration, however, the script seems to break and only can migrate one thread (files are not downloaded etc). https://gitgud.io/rb/MultiScraper Link to the project. I've attached some screenshots to show the errors that I'm getting. For reference I'm using Python 3.8 (Ubuntu 20.04), and have followed the exact instructions on the repo (this is a LynxChan to LynxChan migration). A question that I have that is not answered in the repo is however the target board should be established, in other words, should I make a blank board with the target board name, or just run the script and the script will make the board by default?

Controller Issues

I have recently bought an 8BitDo SN30 Pro+ controller after it had been shilled to hell and back and it was pretty comfortable to play with, but I'm getting some issues with diagonal inputs with the analog sticks. More specifically, according to Windows 7 patented controller settings screen, I can't seem to get the cross in any of the four corners, no matter how hard I try or what settings I change using 8BitDo's software. Updated firmware doesn't seem to make a difference. More specifically, I'm having trouble when playing with emulated games that use wide and angled movements, think Crash Team Racing. I can play it no problem but it won't turn all the way left or right in tight corners for some reasons. Is there a way to achieve that sweet corner movement, or is my controller just defective? It's such a joke that a Linq cheap PS3 controller can do what a 40 dollarydoos controller can't.

Haskell general - see what other languages will introduce in 10 years

This thread is for make benefit glorious language of Haskell and functional programming in general. Discuss anything from newbie questions (what's a monad?) to advanced topics (what's a monad?) to category theory (what's a monad?) to your real-life haskell projects (>implying haskell is used outside academia) to what language features should be included in GHC9 to which IDE is best.

The hottest opinions: https://github.com/ghc-proposals/ghc-proposals/pulls?q=is%3Aopen+is%3Apr+no%3Alabel

Haskell for starters: http://learnyouahaskell.com/introduction#what-you-need
Hoogle: https://www.stackage.org/
Introduction to lenses: https://www.schoolofhaskell.com/school/to-infinity-and-beyond/pick-of-the-week/a-little-lens-starter-tutorial

If you're past the Hello World phase, I highly recommend using stack to sandbox projects https://docs.haskellstack.org/en/stable/README/#quick-start-guide and install HIE for IDE integration (e.g. VS Code) https://github.com/haskell/haskell-ide-engine#user-content-installation . Where Hoogle beats any other form of documentation, HIE beats any autocomplete and checker, simply because Haskell has such a rich type system and GHC has features like typed holes.

Honorable mention to http://www.purescript.org/ for being basically Haskell but without a lot of legacy garbage and with row types. A huge downside is that it's not lazy.

What can we do to help mitigate spam on imageboards? In the past few months I have noticed an increase of spam (especially political drama manipulation and website ads) mass posted on literally dozens to hundreds of imageboards at a time. I have no doubt this will increase as we approach the US elections. How can we use technology to help mitigate the destructive impact of spam? One place where this is important is on political boards which often mistake political manipulation spam for legitimate contributions as it fits their board topic. It's also less obvious to people who use only one IB.

Homebrew and Hardware Faggotry

I figured we can have a thread for hrdware shit. I'm planning out a homebrew CPU. This is my proposed microarchitechture. I've posted it on every other fucking imageboard. I might as well post it here. It's a pretty simple stack machine. I'll be making it from 74LS series TTL logic. I plan to use two 74LS181 for the ALU. The data bus will be 8 bit's, but the adressing will all be 16 bit so I can get a whopping 64k of ram for program memory and the stacks.

The Python Pill

I'm having mixed feelings about this language. I've been recently tasked to write a project using it and part of me is really happy about how relaxing it is to code with it, that is to say, how braindead most of its functionalities are and how easy it is to just grab a module from someone else, try it, find out they forgot some very important functionality, just add it in post and use it as you please. On the other hand, it's staggeringly heavy duty unless you're going for GPU processing and some design choices are just counter intuitive (why is there no Switch case? who thought that having different parts of code be separated by indenting them would have been a good idea?) - so I'm left asking you guys: 1) Is it worth it learning expansively over other languages? 2) What are your thoughts on its features? 3) Some neat modules you've found?

API's and Bindings thread

Holy shit, I just started using Lua 5.3's C api and it's so much cleaner than the 5.1 api I was using before. It makes it so easy to build out metatables for all the types that you're trying to bind. the luaL_checkX functions are a godsend too, it's a real breath of fresh air coming from certain other scripting languages. I think the SLOC I needed for binding easily went down at least 20% using this new interface. It's still got some warts like the lua_tolstring caveats, and the weird proxies and function metamethods for getters and setters, but I think it's a big improvement. ITT Talk about binding things to other languages. Do any api's stand out to you as particularly clean, effective or clever?

I found an interesting looking site which interviews people asking them what hardware/software they use for their life/work/projects.

Fucko (((FUTURE))) tech thread RIP privacy

Jewgle and Apple will rape their users by permanently baking a GPS/wifi/BT tracking system into android and iOS updates itself as clearly exploitable an update and API specially designed for governments along with it for "contact tracing". To use for... shit like: https://twitter.com/TectonixGEO/status/1242628347034767361 >notice 'device_id' , 'query_string' https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2020/apr/02/experts-warn-of-privacy-risk-as-us-uses-gps-to-fight-coronavirus-spread >they say all this user data caught and bought from such as randomly downloadable apps which request GPS location. But it's not enough. They are collecting WIFI+GPS+Bluetooth, and now on an even larger scale which means data alone can reduce it to where you live and whoever you came in contact with. The data alone is not private itself regardless of how much they claim it's "anonymous". And this Is only a will away from ID, Credit card, Social credit, so they can click on people like some faggot NPC in SIMS in the Tectonix data viewer and laugh looking at their SIMS NPC slaves while they can have it all under wraps like secret police without touching as much as a strand of hair. How convenient. Right now the best governments can quasi-legally get is cell tower triangulation without requesting straight up GPA data from userdata sellers. Governments could just say “hey look these 30 phones(people) were around this building.” But now with contact tracing you can legally place all these smart-phones in the same room with each other. On its own It’s a massive attack on privacy. In the larger context, were at the point where if you want privacy, at all, you virtually can’t own smart phone that's not offline, in the best case at least a non-proprietary one. You have to get a dumb phone. Or maybe a pinefone-tm. In any case it will be without WIFI, GPS and Bluetooth. Funnily enough "COVID-19 contact tracing" is in fact quite similar to network analysis someone would want to do to crush an insurgency. Physical location is important, but building out a web of connections is also important, way more in-fact. But until now at least that information has not been so accurate that the individuals we're around are all identifiable and logged or at least not without a lot of trouble. Not anymore. I bet china uses the same system to measure social credit. Buckle up, the (((future))) is going to be so fun. The epitomy of the surveillance aparatus going to be installed, under the preface of "our protection" of course, its never going away after that. if Stalin was still alive right now he would jizz his pants so hard he would die. No one will have privacy ever again(at least with smart phones which is pretty much everyone because everyone is addicted to their phones and can't life without it for 2 seconds like crack cocaine).

Alternative OS thread

Personally, I believe that *BSD (minus FreeBSD) are the most realistic alternatives for Linux.
Pls don't start spamming "blackpills" or the "cuck license" bikeshed.

OpenBSD
+ The default installation is very secure. OpenBSD has many interesting security features (pledge for example).
+ Competent developers who are committed to developing their OS
+ OpenBSD's sister projects like mandoc, OpenSSH and LibreSSl are cool
+ sndio sound server is comfy
+ Especially well-written man-pages and FAQs
+ Theo de Raadt is based
+/- Its developers and users expect you to at lest try to fix the problem yourself before they will help you. You get replies quickly on the mailing-lists. #openbsd @ Freenode is active.
+/- Doesn't have Bluetooth support anymore
+/- OpenBSD uses cvs

notes and resources
* https://www.openbsd.org/
* OpenBSD Journal: https://undeadly.org/
* Default package management: OpenBSD's ports and pkg_ tools. Currently has about 10578 packages in ports.
* The OpenBSD FAQ (the installation guide): https://www.openbsd.org/faq/index.html
* Simply put, you can use pkg_info -Q foobar to find a package and pkg_add foobar to install it
* If you want, you can install the standard Ganoo tools: pkg_add coreutils
* If you wish to run X11 (xenocara) you should also enable automatic starting of OpenBSD's DM (xenodm) during the installation
* The ability to run startx as regular user was re-added in 6.6 release, however, it is still recommended to use Xenodm as startx might pick the wrong driver in some cases, apparently
* You should install ALL file sets during the installation
* If you have (created) a (MBR or GPT) partition with OpenBSD's partition type (A6) then OpenBSD's installer will recognize it and ask whether you want to install to that partition.
* OpenBSD gaming resource: https://mrsatterly.com/openbsd_games.html
* Rundown of OpenBSD's security features: https://www.openbsd.org/security.html and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenBSD_security_features
* You can install non-free firmware using the fw_update tool. Its man-page is self-explanatory.
* You can install patches with syspatch. Its man-page is self-explanatory.
* You can upgrade to the next release by using the sysupgrade utility, which was added in 6.5 patch no. 012. (N.B. Be sure to read the man-page as you probably want to use the -k option!) You can read more about this feature from its announcement email (https://marc.info/?l=openbsd-announce&m=156577865917831)
* The binary packages are now also getting updates on the latest "stable" release! Currently, updates for binary packages are provided on AMD64, i386 and arm64/aarch64 platforms. Previously, your only options were to either build from source or use pkgsrc if you wanted newer packages.
* If you want to install pkgsrc on OpenBSD, make backups of the original pkg_add, pkg_delete, pkg_info and pkg_check binaries. (ProTip: use whereis command and cp) Or install pkgsrc into your home directory (use ./bootstrap --unprivileged)
* I got pkgsrc working on OpenBSD 6.3 on AMD64, by using the following command-line: ./bootstrap --compiler clang --unprivileged --prefer-pkgsrc=openssl
* When you are creating disk partitions, you can specify a partition's size in (for example) gigabytes, by appending G to the desired size (for example, 42G means 42 gigabytes). (see also, man 8 disklabel, man 8 fdisk and man 8 newfs)

Intel Management Engine Has NSA Kill-Switch

>According to a highly technical blog post, Positive Technologies experts revealed they discovered a hidden bit inside the firmware code, which when flipped (set to "1") it will disable ME after ME has done its job and booted up the main processor.

>The bit is labelled "reserve_hap" and a nearby comment describes it as "High Assurance Platform (HAP) enable."

>High Assurance Platform (HAP) is an NSA program that describes a series of rules for running secure computing platforms.

>Our DMA malware DAGGER is not executed on the host processor. It is
executed on the processor provided by Intel’s ME. No additional hardware is
required. DAGGER implements a sophisticated isolated runtime attack on user
input. Additionally, our DMA malware could steal cryptographic keys, target
OS kernel structures in an attack, and copy files from the file cache.

Handheld Computers

What is /tech/'s opinion on devices like the Smach Z and the GPD Win series and their potential for software freedom? On the one hand, having the same functionality as a laptop packed into the size of a handlend system like the 3ds could potentially let you do some pretty cool stuff. One blog I saw talked about putting Kali Linux on a GPD Win 2 and using it as a more subtle tool for wardrivng, for example. But on the other hand, they're still (((modern hardware))) so they're probably backdoored to hell and back at the very and won't be able to be 100% pozz free anytime soon absent some firmware-flashing breakthrough. Any recommendations/advice? Where I can get one firsthand in particular? I was thinking about getting one and maybe trying to install something like Retroarch on it to emulate older vidya on the go. Maybe sort through text/images/etc with /k/ and /pol/ stuff too, but that might be a bit risky w/o any idea of what kind of backdoors might be hiding. But I didn't have any luck finding anything available online the last time i tried that wasn't a secondhand offer and I'm not interested in chancing get broken shit I can't fix at a price tag of hundreds of dollars.

Tech Hardware Discussion Thread 1: Never buy HP products edition

Discussion for all things Hardware. Buys, Wants and recommendations. I obtained a HP Probook 64xxb recently however the machine bios was locked along with the OS selection, I researched for about 30 minutes and found leaked OEM bios restore keys along with the functionality to enter bios reset and flash mode insert OEM key it was easy as fuck even a child could do this. What i did on probook was doing a combo of f10 pushes to then install Linux. It's fucking pathetic to sell such a glaring factory backdoored product like this and these were marketed to the professional sector.

Meta-Machine Code

I had a thread on 8chan's /tech/ for this program of mine and, now that I've found this place, I may as well make one here.

Featured in the image is my Meta-Machine Code targeted at CHIP-8; on display in that is a Rule 30 program I've written in CHIP-8. This is what I consider an ideal machine code development tool that I envisioned years back and have by now breathed life into.

An assembler is a lesser tool, I believe, lacking an intimate knowledge of what it targets and being a batch tool; my MMC is interactive and asks the programmer to recall little about the machine code being used, as it will explain in suitable detail all instructions it knows of; further, as programming is accomplished through instructions bound to keys, rather than to mnemonics, it's easy to simply press keys and answer questions until one learns what the keys are bound to. Invalid instructions won't be generated; an assembler will simply fail with an error. I've more recently come to believe the tool could have pedagogical worth, as one can simply learn the tool as it's used, which isn't reasonable with an assembler and its assembler language.

Here's some articles I've written concerning this tool of mine, which will give you details and demonstrations:
http://verisimilitudes.net/2017-07-07
http://verisimilitudes.net/2018-01-01
http://verisimilitudes.net/2018-08-08

The version currently available is old and out-of-date compared to what I'm using. The program is in a state where only I can really use it, for a variety of reasons. I've been wanting to write an Ada reimplementation, but I've found that the idea isn't nearly structured enough to the degree Ada requires and the Common Lisp implementation I've is a mess I've been reluctant to work on.

Simply put, Common Lisp is that language I'm most skilled with and the flexibility it provided allowed me to hang myself with tangential considerations. Wanting for a proper customization mechanism that wasn't Lisp, I thought a machine code was an appropriate mechanism to customize a machine code tool and the least arbitrary choice; as CHIP-8 lacks the power to do such a thing, however, I designed a Meta-CHIP-8 and the current implementation of the tool is a shell around this environment, with the personality of the tool being written in Meta-CHIP-8. This is, of course, a mess.

My current plan is to rewrite the Common Lisp once more in a more structured fashion and lacking Meta-CHIP-8 and I expect after that I'll have the structure necessary to translate the Common Lisp to Ada. I can still work on the primitives the Ada version needs and will use, but the overall organization of the packages and whatnot lacked the structure I thought it should have. I've also written my own terminal library in Common Lisp and this is something I've not yet published in Ada, which is another requirement down the way.

In any case, feel free to ask me any questions concerning this or other works of mine and I'll do my best to provide an answer. Now, the argument could be made this doesn't deserve a thread, but I thought this place could benefit from the activity and I'm suitably interested in it.

The most prominent (only) game in the icup is watching the AI of Pro Evolution Soccer '17 play against itself. Our job is to provide 22 players (half of them on the bench), team colors, an anthem, a logo and tactical settings for the AI. Players can range from Stallman to NoScript to how2anonymous, while the anthem can be anywhere from Don't copy that floppy to the theme of Mr Robot.

Does anyone know how to wholly replace a syslinux boot with grub2? I'm trying to load some squashfs read only live usbs but I need grub so I can pass some grub commands before the kernel loads. syslinux is A SHIT and there are no useful modules like in grub. The live images have the kernel separate from the system rootfs, and I have no problem targeting the kernel in grub, and the initrd seems useless from what I could see from the init script in it, like I could just pass flags to the kernel directly instead of fucking around with a bunch of useless if statement busybox bullshit. I managed to get it to work for one system, with no initrd and everything, but I can't reproduce it in a second system. Why is everything a fucking script and all the real commands undocumented. Anyway, I've been working at it for ages and tomorrow I'll just try the hail mary of passing grub-install to a drive with the live image written and see if it overwrites the syslinux bullshit, but I was hoping anons here might have a better idea. Also, what are the odds of getting a working system from source off github? I've never done a custom build, but I need to because I want to include some legacy drivers as well as grub. Everything seems to be automagically made with bootroot and docker but it doesn't really tell me how to build a custom version. for clarity, I have no problem getting to grub and booting the efi files, but the kernel can't find the squashfs root even though I pass the flags, so something's fucking up in my /boot/grub/grub.cfg, and yes I'm writing it by hand because I'm autistic like that.

Cops locate person through Sirius satellite radio

>VALLEY CENTER, Calif. (KGTV) — Using a satellite radio "ping" signal, local deputies were able to track down an attempted murder suspect at a North County casino early Saturday. >Just before 2:30 a.m. Saturday, Valley Center Sheriff's deputies were alerted to the suspect, identified as 54-year-old Steven Salas, who was wanted for attempted murder, criminal threats, and felony domestic violence. >Using information about Salas' vehicle provided by Imperial County deputies, local authorities were able to track down Salas by sending a "ping" to his Sirius satellite radio. His vehicle was then located at Harrah's Rincon Casino in Valley Center. >When deputies say they tried to make contact with Salas, he fled the casino and led deputies on a pursuit. >A spike strip was successfully deployed and Salas ended up driving back toward the casino before pulling into a nearby gas station, where he was arrested, deputies say. >No one was injured during the pursuit. >Salas has been booked into San Diego County jail on several felony charges. https://www.10news.com/news/local-news/north-county-news/deputies-ping-satellite-radio-to-track-down-attempted-murder-suspect

Setting up Protomail anonymously

I'm trying to set up an email account to use with my board here, but my old 8chan.co email apparently won't receive emails now. I want to go ahead and set up a Protonmail account, but in the setup process they ask you to fight 'spam' by confirming your identity with either email, SMS, or a donation. I tried several of the burner emails from guerrilla mail, but proton say these are all 'temporarily disabled, please try another'.

I certainly have no plans to give them a real email or phone number, and don't have a good way to give them a donation to help 'fight spam'. Any suggestions /tech/?

Anyone can install node.js and start fucking around, or do what a minecraft port forwarding tutorial tells you to, but if you want to be serious about this stuff you need to actually understand what you're doing and why you're doing it. What if your server stops working properly and the problem isn't "it crashed"? You'd have no idea what to do because you just installed some shit without understanding them and their roles. How do you learn how this stuff works? Are there any good books on it or something? What keywords should you put into a search engine in order to find the right stuff?

elementary OS 5.1 'Hera' Linux distro is here

By Brian Fagioli

>elementary OS has long been viewed by many as the future of Linux on the PC thanks to its beautiful desktop environment and overall polished experience. Development of the Ubuntu-based operating system has been frustratingly slow, however. This shouldn't be surprising, really, as the team of developers is rather small, and its resources are likely much less than those of larger distributions such as the IBM-backed Fedora or Canonical's Ubuntu. And that is what makes elementary OS so remarkable -- its developers can make magic on a smaller budget.

>Today, the latest version of the operating system is released. Code-named "Hera," elementary OS 5.1 is now available for download. Support for Flatpak is now baked in — this is significant, as the developers explain it is “the first non-deb packaging format we've supported out of the box.” The Linux kernel now sits at a very modern 5.0. One of the most important aspects of elementary OS, the AppCenter, is now an insane 10 times faster than its predecessor. Wow.

>"elementary OS 5.1 Hera takes the same foundation as Juno -- utilizing the same underlying repositories and libraries—but builds on it with a refined experience. It is the culmination of our work over the past year packaged up into one cohesive update. As such, the 5.1 number represents that it’s a major update, but not an entirely new version (which usually come around every two years). It’s still significant enough, however, to deserve its own name and identity," says Cassidy James Blaede, Co-founder and CXO, elementary.

>Blaede further says, "The newly redesigned login and lockscreen greeter looks sharper, works better, and fixes many reported issues with the previous greeter including focus issues, HiDPI issues, and better localization. The new design in Hera was in response to user feedback from Juno, and enables some nice new features. It now always shows usernames for all users, shows users’ backgrounds as cards so you can more easily find users who maybe haven’t set differentiating avatars, notifies when Caps or Num Lock are on, and makes “Log In as Guest” more distinct when it’s enabled."

Apps are also a big focus of elementary and Blaede shares improvements below.

Calendar received a major redesign that is brighter, cleaner, and more usable -- plus we've improved support for recurring events.
Camera is now faster and compatible with many more webcam models.
Photos has new checkerboard-backed translucent image previews and improved dialogs throughout the app.
Music is greatly improved with more discoverable keyboard shortcuts, better performance, more reliability, and a fresh new orange accent color.
Videos supports auto-queuing the next episode, plus improvements to keyboard navigation and audio track titles.
Files is one of the first to support the new cross-desktop CloudProviders API which currently integrates with NextCloud.
Code has more discoverable keyboard shortcuts and greatly expanded git integration.
Terminal has better-exposed keyboard shortcuts and improved contrast.

>Overall, the number of changes and improvements found in elementary OS 5.1 'Hera' is overwhelming -- I highly recommend reading the official announcement here for all the details. Quite frankly, it extremely impressive to see what the developers have accomplished in Hera. Make no mistake, even though this is technically a point release, the move from 5.0 to 5.1 is substantial. If you want to download it for yourself, you can get it here.

What have you been doing?

I've been trying out Vulkan, even though my GPU does not support it.

What did I learn?
1. I found out that apparently the Vulkan loader shits itself if the executable that calls it exports the same symbols as Vulkan. libGL does not do this.
2. I learnt that my executables actually have bunch of symbols in .dynsym. It seems GCC/Clang likes to put global symbols into .dynsym if the executable links to a shared library that exports those symbols. I wish it didn't do that. I solved the problem by renaming the affected variables.

Once again I was bitten in my ass due to linkers being wonky. This problem would not have occurred had the linker worked differently. If nothing would be imported/exported without explicit user direction, I don't think linking problems would be so annoying or common.

Is there any reason (other than Unix autism) why image files do not specify the library from which a symbol is loaded? It sounds retarded to have some kind of load priority, when one could just specify the library manually.

Buying, selling, exchanging funds

What are some truly anonymous ways of transferring funds? Crypto currency generally all seems like a massive scam and not even truly anonymous. Is the closest you can get the postal service? The problem with that is you can't receive funds anonymously that way, only send them. I don't think I can reasonably come up with a method of being paid for services anonymously. Even if you open up a PO box in a fake name or something the glow niggers now have a physical location they can monitor for you. Anyone have ideas on how to overcome this?

Richard Stallman To Continue As Head Of The GNU Project

>While Richard Stallman resigned as president of the Free Software Foundation last week, he just announced he'll be continuing as head of the GNU Project.
>RMS just wrote in a brief mailing list post: On September 16 I resigned as president of the Free Software Foundation, but the GNU Project and the FSF are not the same. I am still the head of the GNU Project (the Chief GNUisance), and I intend to continue as such.
>He hadn't elaborated any further on his GNU plans moving forward besides that he intends on remaining at the front of the GNU Project.
