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.
"The first part of the Solaris code base to be open sourced was the Solaris Dynamic Tracing facility (commonly known as DTrace), a tool that aids in the analysis, debugging, and tuning of applications and systems. DTrace was released under the CDDL on January 25, 2005 on the newly launched opensolaris.org website. The bulk of the Solaris system code was released on June 14, 2005. There remains some system code that is not open sourced, and is available only as pre-compiled binary files."
So, the point is: the original code is not on Illumos. Part of the code has been released, but many parts has been re-engineered, that's what Indiana Project is, to reconstruct Solaris, open source. What's your point? I was wrong in some parts, yes. And you are wrong too.

>over and over and over. actually I only discuss openbsd here with you, it seems. Most part of the threads here I don't even mention openbsd. But, yeah, I really support the project because: FSF take hundreds of thousands of dollars every year. OpenBSD guys can't even pay for the energy, and they contributed for computing security equally or more than linux dudes in many areas. Redhat and Cisco, for example, use OpenSSH on their systems and don't even donate some coins. Don't you think it's ridiculous? FSF deffend transgender fags and take mountains of money, OpenBSD do hard on security community and can't even pay for the fucking energy.

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
So there's a NNTP chan.
How do you connect to read & post with a standard NNTP client, like Tin, Pine, slrn, etc.?
I checked the docs on github page, but it just says:

do people still use that failure of a board? i don't want to go back there even for a second.
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."
openbsd and freebsd had their codes contribution back from google, netflix and whatever organizations that believed BSD codes helped their business not because license makes them but because their operation benefits from improvement and continuation of such projects.
> make GPL dangerous for a company to touch
it is meant to have consequences if someone deliberately violates terms of license. You think RMS is just masturbating with his never-ending correction of GPL. Whoever uses GPL is essentially delegating their rights to FSF for more systematic enforcement (that is, monetary backup incase you want to sue someone for not giving back the code).
GPL was bullshit and always will be bullshit just like any other software licenses because our law system is not really tailored for IT sector. Is API copyrightable or not, oracle lawsuit and vmware lawsuit will decide.
> it must be gauged by the nature of the software which is appropriate
sure, no single organization can hire entire developers of operating system right? Or maybe FSF guys are just unpaid interns of intel.
>>6649 >Someone suicided because of Linus Torvald very hard critisism isn't it? no, someone almost suicided because linus was too friendly so he decided not to be a giant faggot anymore.
>>6757 >Did I walk in on a bunch of shills shitposting at each other? yes but most of those you linked to were just joking.
let's not forget that linus refuses to make git use sha256 because "nobody would ever put binary files on a git repo so as long as there is no binary in the git diff it's highly unlikely that the hash was bruteforced".
not everything he says is logical or true.
anyway, the solution is in >>7255:
>Is API copyrightable or not, oracle lawsuit and vmware lawsuit will decide. oracle is or was spreading hardcore anti-GPL FUD.
>Whoever uses GPL is essentially delegating their rights to FSF for more systematic enforcement (that is, monetary backup incase you want to sue someone for not giving back the code).
This is not true, merely using the GPL does not give the FSF any rights over your code, or what anyone does with it. It's only if your programme becomes part of GNU that they request you delegate rights.
>>6644 >>6647 >All he wants is a way to make the Linux kernel proprietary He just wants to stick with the GPLv2 because of feuds with some free software people (and not even the FSF staff).
When tivoization appeared people proposed a new draft of the GPL (v3) the license wasn't even a year old draft and Torvalds read it and immediately removed the + of the GPLv2 license that was at that time the license (most of the drivers are still GPLv2+ tho).
What happened are actually linux kernel developers who protested to Torvalds.
Torvalds told them to BTFO because the "draft" GPLv3 license was horrible.
And shit discussions stacked itself for at least two or three weeks until we got the actual State of things where Torvalds don't want to talk about or with free software people.
But he's right about one thing the two or three SJWs in the FSF are crazy and should be impeached for the shit they might steer.
>6648 nah he's just a stubborn idiot guy who holds a decade old grudge because of a draft license.
>>6645 >GPL is Marxist shit and the FSF has done nothing ever asides from try to spread their control over free software
>>7248 W^X is an openbsd thing it's basically all files are either write or execute not both...
you should probably go ask someone who uses openbsd more but this is the info i found using it in the past >t. a fag who only used gentoo/*bsd for 5 days and couldn't find hardening tools...
>>7247 at least he posted the original link. half the archive.is using fuckers just post a shortlink. Archive.is can even use long links like what >>7259 posted. But yeah they need to get rid of cuntflare (maybe switch to a real anti-ddos solution, and save half their money) so their service can actually be useful.
>>7246 This isn't even a problem for most users since they already run everything as the same user, in which case we can just use WriteProcessMemory and CreateRemoteThread for the same functionality (or one of the million other ways to do the same thing). BTW this situation is no differeent than Linux or any other mainstream OS.
Firstly the article is completely retarded, so let's talk about the actual "disclosure" instead: http://blog.ensilo.com/atombombing-a-code-injection-that-bypasses-current-security-solutions >Heading picture leet-haxor.jpg >script kiddie trash detected >no actual disclosure >no CVE >Any kind of decent application level firewall installed on the computer would block that executable’s communication. Well no, there are millions of ways to communicate with the rest of the OS and you cannot enumerate them all, and even if you did, it would mean your stupid Application Firewall gives obscure meaningless warnings (with a 99.999% false positive rate) for every possible action a program takes. This reminds me of Comodo's Application Firewall crap, which did exactly this. >Threat actors! threat actors!!!! pure cancer
First, get a radeon card with Graphics Core Next. The new AMDGPU drivers that replace the old proprietary drivers are fantastic.
Second, get a motherboard that supports overclocking from the bios/uefi.
Third, if you want wireless you need an atheros chip. Check out thinkpenguin.
Last, aim a little high on the PSU, I have heard linux drivers have higher power consumption on pcie devices.
Also, if you are using wine, check out gallium nine.
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.
>>8563 >>8564 The original creator didn't fuck off, he stepped down to become one of the writers. Apparently he couldn't write under all the pressure. That said, season 5/6 which was the transition was a little bloated. However they have wrapped everything together in seasons 7, 8 & 9 quite nicely. I particularly liked Finns origin story in the "Islands" mini series which harks back to previous plot development surround Finns dad Martin. The real problem it seems is that it became far more popular than any other Cartoon Network show. So they deliberately fucked the schedule for episodes to release new episodes as a surprise to force viewers to watch the channel. This negatively affected the ratings. To be fair though the show has had a rough end date since its' creation, because they chose a child actor to voice Finn, eventually he would out grow the role. Anyway, I am clearly a little biased since I like it so much I am making a complete archive of episodes but I think it's being killed off earlier than necessary. There was talk about a Warner Bros. film, maybe now it has ended they will finally make it. Any remaining plot holes can be filled then, but it's mostly complete.
>>8562 I know the intro and outtro are the same length every time , also the show stopped doing cold opens, so for the remaining seasons (6,7,8,9) that won't be a problem. This is a much better way of handling it than I was thinking to be honest, I was looking for a way to cut off the beginning then cut off the end forcing me to process each file twice.
Any ideas on renaming the files? Every file should have the "s01e01" indicator in its' name, if I could just cut out the rest, that would be ideal. I don't even need to keep the file extension, I can just add a ".mp4" in the ffmpeg output. I am looking this up, would it be sed to find the "s0" the cut everything an additional 4 characters after that and move the file to that new name?
>>8565 No, the real cancer is Teen Titans GO!, not Cartoon Network's schedule. DC comics got CN by the balls with that show that is the epitome of Gen Z sterile canned humor. If that show just fucked off, everything would be more tolerable.
>open first pic >le retro mac and laptop on a clean table Shitty taste but the battlestations are neutral. Unless you are in a cubicle you have a shitposting station. Empty cans and ciggarette butts. plumes of ash when lifting the keyboard. The theme of an alter a place of work. You can get carried away with it but you have to aknowledge your body seated in front of an electronic screen. Might as well look cool.
>>8596 lobste.rs was originally spreaded by openbsd developers. For example, beck@ , tedu@ , mark@ , all of then use lobste.rs.
It's not the "openbsd-like version of hacker news" in the sense of good code, correctiness, but it has some collaboration from openbsd guys.
>>8593 >battlestation are neutral it's ridiculous. No one gives a shit about your consumerism. I don't want to know about what window manager you use and how "riced" it is. I don't want to see your brown switch keyboard with fucking backlight.
Battlestation and desktop threads are the maximum signal of a tech-community degeneracy. When you reach this point you stop and go back, or you die... or, you transform yourself in a hipster. Imageboards are the last place without the retarded and reductionist mentality of hipsters, let's keep this way.
>>8611 >Imageboards are the last place without the retarded and reductionist mentality of hipsters, let's keep this way. By the way, I know we're talking about lobste.rs, that's not an imageboard. I was referring to these threads we normally see on imageboards.
Lobste.rs was the last news aggregator without many hipsters, now it's full of it.

https://orca.tech/?action=proxy-checker Useful to use before proxycheck.sh because it is much faster like seconds for a thousand proxies. But proxycheck.sh is still useful because it weeds out the proxies that give certificate errors in the google or youtube check.
Good catch. OK thats definite masonic lingo there. Not sure about the logo, it looks like the doppler effect. Just because the website has masonic references doesn't mean that the software doesn't work. I haven't tried it personally, but I liked the advertised anti-systemd approach. I think a disclaimer is in order, rather than a removal of the link. What are your thoughts?
>>925 It already is a disclaimer of sorts but I am pleased you added it to the post where it was linked. (completely not neccisary) I actually trust this more because they are more forthcoming to the vidion of the project. You look at CISCO's logo it is not only the golden gate bridge it is the markings like you see on a ruler. Why is CISCO using ruler indentations as its logo? You look at GNU its baal. Heads tells you they are insiders in the first sentence. This could prove to make it not compromised as it could be using the reputation of this proffesional mens club to vet itself. Or it could mean there is a backdoor of some kind. An eye in the iso. I would check it out but not immediatly choose this os as something to use in a time of elites ruthlessly vying for power.

Continuing from >>>/tech/597 https://archive.is/INR3l This is for non specific, general tips for anonymous web browsing and downloads, tips on browsers and browser configurations for the security concious that you don't want to make a new thread for.
Endware is a suite of programs geared towards internet privacy, security, and anonymity.
Endwall: endwall.sh is an iptables based firewall script designed to be implemented on any linux distribution shipped with iptables. endwall.sh is based on default drop policies, coupled with a novel strategy of passing packets on local host ports only for those enabled by the enduser. It comes with a variety of well used ports enabled with several additional port passing configurations available by uncommenting the script. It provides essential security to a new user.
Endsets: endsets.sh is a script that adds blacklisting and whitelisting functionality to endwall.sh. It depends on the program ipset. It is persistent on reboot if you enable ipset as a service. This is the recommended blacklisting tool for endwall if you are running a server or planning on opening up ports and services to the public and will require daily blacklisting of new incomming IPs.
Endlists: endlists.sh is a traditional text file list based blacklisting and whitelisting script. It has slow performance, and can't be updated on the fly. Good for <1000 ip subnets, very tedious and slow to run for more than that. Blocks the IPs by adding them as individual rules to the iptables ruleset. Works but not recommended for heavy duty on a server. May be useful for workstation use to block ip ranges if you are not opening up ports and services to public clients.
Endtools: endtools are a collection of scripts including alogz.sh, mlogz.sh, spamlogz.sh and iplookup.py. These scripts will help to service an enduser of endwall in adminstering endsets/endlists.
iplookup.py is a geoiplookup script written in python and requires python and pygeoip. It has simmilar functionality to maxmind's geoiplookup program and uses the maxmind *.dat files.
spamlogz.sh is a script that searches through log files to find flagged log entries flagged in endwall.sh, endsets.sh and endlists.sh.
alogz.sh is a daily log reading script designed to read the output of an apache http server's log output.
mlogz.sh is a daily log reading script designed to read the output of a postfix smtp server's log output.
I have now added user-agent methods to endstream. you can also supply the commands ua-rand , ua-ranstr, ua-tor, ua-row1, and ua-off in the command line using --ua-randor in the prompt when you are prompted to enter a number by supplying ua-rand without the --. Also you can use the + and - keys followed by enter to increment and decrement channels. It should be easy for someone to make an infrared usb remote control that supplies + ENTER when pressing channel up and - ENTER when pressing the channel down button.
I also made a minor bug fix to endtube.sh and oldtube.sh to do with the ua-ranstr function. It should be working as I originally intended now. I'll implement the user-agent features on the rest of the streaming programs sometime this week.
I'll work on things here and there but I'm going to be on hiatus for the next 2 months with respect to programming. I know I still have some requests to fill but I'll get to dealing with them eventually.
If you have any bug reports, product suggestions, ideas, or concerns about the endware products, please comment below. Thanks.
Which distro? I tried 8 or so distros and they all have problems on my laptop. Mainly dpi scaling on my 2k screen. Otherwise, many of them are great. I was looking at Ubuntu Budgie but there was not UI scaling option. Unity seems to have the best scaling and the GUI is all over the place. Icons are too small so I make them bigger but the text underneath is still tiny. Modal dialogs scale oddly. I compare this to running Ubuntu on my desktop(1080p). Which distro do you recommend for a 14 inch 2k laptop screen?

As I said before, Copyright licenses (like any license) are freely revocable unless barred by estoppel. The GPL v2 lacks a no-revocation clause thus estoppel would be more difficult to argue (additonally none of the "agreeing parties" have ever met each other).
