Script kiddies can't get their way
Summary: Script kiddies made it impractical to manage comments and forum posts; we are trying to tackle this issue today
IN ANOTHER attempt to restore user registrations, this time on the new server which has just been configured for mail, we are enabling anyone to quickly self-register (takes less than a minute and requires no verification), then immediately post comments, forum posts, etc.
I run a fairly simple Archlinux setup with X server and Openbox. I don't use display manager such as slim or gdm, but I heard it offers improved security and other features. Can someone explain it better? Also, is "getty" the thing which handles authentication in case of missing display manager?submitted by soaring_turtle

Hey, things are looking pretty normal, and rc4 is smaller than rc3, so
The biggest patch in here (accounting for about a sixth of the total)
is just DaveJ re-indenting a reiserfs file. Ignoring that whitespace
cleanup, the rest is mostly the usual mix of drivers, networking and
some architecture updates.
Nothing big, and nothing that looks particularly scary.
So get to it, and test it all out.
This is for an offline machine. I see hundred of answers on how to do this with ubuntu but none of them work. I think the problem is my online machine already has the package installed with all it's dependencies, so when I use apt-get it already sees I have everything so it doesn't even make a list of what to download, let alone download it.submitted by goltoof
I've just completed my 3rd linux upgrade in 5 years (Debian etch, squeeze, and now wheezy), and spent my entire Sunday finding old dependencies needed to build and install Amarok14. Laugh if you must, but even the "newer" packages of debian wheezy are unhappy with the legacy requirements of amarok14.
I convince myself it's necessary because first I'm hooked on the style and behavior of 14, but more importantly it offers native MySQL integration for my 1 terabyte (920gb exact) music library. Other programs grind to a halt when importing, and command line'ing "find "/mnt/raid/ -name 'Pink*.mp3'" is tedious to say the least.
Any suggestions? Or otherwise approval of these efforts....?submitted by spaten
