Illumos-based OSes

Anyone using or dabbling in an Illumos-based OS like OpenIndiana?

After 10 years of using Linux (though I used OpenSolaris a little here and there before Oracle killed it), I've been using OpenIndiana as my daily driver.

On the surface, it's a lot like using any Linux distro with MATE. I have access to most* of the tools I'm accustomed to like gcc, TeXLive, Firefox, and VLC.

I'm really not familiar with the under-the-hood features of the OS that come from Solaris, like DTrace and Zones. On the other hand, I never used systemtap or LXC on Linux, either.

OpenIndiana will be putting out updated installation .isos in the near future. In the meantime, you can install with one of the currently available isos and update. If you want to try OI in a virtual machine, be sure to allocate plenty of RAM. 2048MB minimum.

*With the exception of Tor Browser Bundle, which I'd love to have on OI.

can't download files to disk from sankakucomplex

Kind /tech/nologists

A week or so ago I can't download images with the Tor Browser from sankakucomplex.

How is this even possible?

I can load the full size image in my browser, so it is in the memory, but when I try to download it to disk, it just creates a ~5.5kB broken file. Is this some new Firefox browser feature? How can the server owner have the right what I do with data that's already in my RAM? Is this some kind of new DRM? Please enlighten me. You can be as technical as you want to be, I'm a gentooman, I'm just not up to date about browser technology.

I await your answers with interest and a held beck REE if my worst fears prove to be right.

p.s.: on a second thought is this a Cloudlare-wide thing?

p.s.2: I can still download images from other Cloudflared sites like 4chan, 8ch

Linus Torvalds: Free Software Foundation "insane crazy people"

We all knew it. Now Linus said it.

In a mailing list discussion about GPL enforcement, Torvalds touches on the pitfalls of involving lawyers in GPL disputes and argues for the superiority of the open source approach, stating: "the people who have created open source and made it a success have been the developers doing work - and the companies that we could get involved by showing that we are not all insane crazy people like the FSF."

Thoughts? Butthurt?

ffmpeg help

Hey guys, with Adventure Time coming to an end I would like to create a web-dl complete torrent of all seasons.

I like what tinymp4 did here:
These are the 720p episodes with the intro and outtro cut out.

What I want to do is maybe write a script or use bash tools to rename the episodes in a uniform way to cut out the extra stuff in file names, then use something like ffmpeg to cut the beginning and the end off each file but leave the rest as is.

Any ideas how I should go about this?

Acrobat Reader Alternative

Are there any alternatives for browsing pdfs in browser that don't require Adobe Acrobat? The main problem is having to allow it each time in Firefox because it's apparently not secure.

>tor browser now only plays sound if you have pulseaudio installed


First, Tails depends on systemd based Debian, now the Tor Browser depends on PulseAudio.

Pottering is killing anonymity.

Could I follow youtube channels without having an account? I am thinking using RSS or similar.

I subscribe to 400+ channels on my current account so I cannot simply check each one for new videos.

Anyone tried something like this?

In what situation would I need to tumble my bitcoin? I mean if law enforcement did not know what my bitcoin public keys where but I also had a large sum of money going into a bank account under my name how could they find out if I got that bitcoin legal or not?
