TuxMachines: Programming: TLS, Systers, RockScript, London Perl Workshop

Friday 27th of October 2017 10:41:56 PM
  • Mauritian code-cutters to help deliver TLS 1.3

    When IETF 100's hackathon kicks off in Singapore, one of the groups hoping to make waves will come from Mauritius.

    Their aim, Logan Velvindron of hackers.mu told Vulture South, is twofold: to make serious contributions to the development of the as-yet-immature TLS 1.3, and along the way, break Mauritius out of its public image as a tourist destination with nothing to contribute to today's IT.

  • Scout out code problems with SonarQube

    More and more organizations are implementing DevOps to make it faster to get quality code into the production environment after passing through the intermediate development and testing environments. Although things such as version control, continuous integration and deployment, and automated testing all fall under the scope of DevOps, one critical question remains: How can an organization quantify code quality, not just deployment speed?

Reddit: [Question] Help trying to boot any Linux distro on intel atom x5-Z8350

Friday 27th of October 2017 10:40:32 PM

For the last couple of days I've been trying to install Linux on a laptop with a Intel Atom x5-Z8350 processor and with 2 GB of ram. I've tried several distros (from kali Linux to essentialOS), and several apps to write the iso to a USB drive (rufus, etcher, unetbootin... You name it), but it just won't work, when I try to boot into the USB drive I get a little flash on the screen and it reboots into windows. I've read that some intel atom processors can be difficult to run Linux in, but possible nevertheless. Does anyone know how could I do it? Thanks in advance.

Reddit: w/o SUDO, docker, or gentoo; how to install software requiring alot of dependencies on enterprise machine in $home directory?

Friday 27th of October 2017 10:26:59 PM

Almost entirely, most tutorial wills imply refer to using sudo apt-get install, or in some form refer to using admin privileges.

What would be the easiest way to install MQTT without its dependencies. I'm not too experienced, but it seems very unclear which dependencies are needed exactly. MAKE error show missing dependencies which are also missing dependencies itself. Seems chaotic.

My next approach would be to emulate the environment I want to install in and simply compile the software on my own machine and transfer it over. Is this the best I could do?

Thanks!

  • Bionic Beaver now open for development
  • Longtime friends

    You may not know him, but he’s amongst other things the creator of something that could be seen as a precursor to a GNOME OS. Foresight was a distribution based on conary and aimed at providing an easy to use desktop with the latest technologies. It had rolling releases and always shipped the newest upstream bits, without any downstream patches whatsoever. It was also the first distribution to use PackageKit as the official user facing application installation interface. Back then, we used it as the base for an official live image of GNOME available on the GNOME website which was actually just Foresight without the wallpaper or any mention of the distribution.

  • Mir To Next Focus On Improving Wayland Testing

Reddit: linux is awesome

Friday 27th of October 2017 09:32:46 PM

hello, so i don't know if i'm in the right place, but i think i fell in love with linux. I was victim of a terribly dumb bug in windows that made me stuck in repair mode (repair bootloop) because i prematurely powered off my computer two times in a row because since awesome(not) windows 10, you can't get out of the repair mode unless you tell it to stop, so when it has an issue, well, good luck. And microsoft seem to often ignore that, but some people WORK with their computer, so these dumb ideas to "close" their system and remove options just for the sake of it actually harm their consumers greatly when they can't afford to spend a whole afternoon fixing stuff because of a dumb idea like "let's remove the option to go out of repair mode with our next os !"

I got so fed up that i decided i was done with it so i looked for an android desktop or whatever, but everything was kinda limited, no traditional desktop experience and so on... then i stumbled upon linux.

at first i was like "no way it's too limiting, there's no app and stuff, performance is bad", like i repeated what everyone told me. But having no choice, i decided to try the simplest distro i could find (linux mint) a few weeks ago and wow, nor only was it even easier to install than windows, but it's actually much more stable than it too. No slowdown because of crappy windows update, no intensive use of my internet out of nowhere to spy on my stuff, no 10 minutes to wait when you search something on the computer because microsoft wants to get all info on my files to probably sell it, great performance, everything worked out of the box (except my wifi)... I was kinda amazed at how i could have missed that side of the computer world for so long.

I mean, i'm not saying windows is crap, i'm actually kind of impressed on some aspect of it now and i'm not ebut it's the arbitrary decisions of privacy, the price (you have to pay to be spied on!), the instability (because yes, no matter what people say, windows 10 is still prone to BSOD, crashes, freezes...) and the horrible pushing of microsoft 10 apps / ads everywhere that makes me wonder why it's still so broadly used. I mean why are we all using windows ? Litteraly every single app i use on Windows is on linux (OBS, anki, discord...) and some of them actually work better on linux like firefox, which is terrible on windows sometimes but butter smooth on linux so i feel really dumb now when i think back about me telling linux user that "i can't go on linux because there's no apps"

And there's so much diversity in linux ! like KDE, gnome, XCFE... You can really get your computer, you're not "stuck" with one thing, you can change everything... of course i had issues on the way, and after testing many distros, it all came down to my nvidia card with the proprietary driver, which made it crash everytime after a while. I decided to go rogue and build my os from scratch with arch linux (which was probably a little bit extreme to avoid this issue) and switch to my intel gpu and since then, i was prepared to stumble upon issues but i think i never had a more stable computer. Everything just works. And it's fucking free !! Plus my desktop is like super cool with some awesome effects since you can customize litteraly everything, i always feel like i'm using a computer from the future everytime i boot it up. And did i already said it just works ?

I think i'm in love

LXer: How to Fix the 403 Forbidden Error in WordPress

Friday 27th of October 2017 09:03:44 PM
The 403 Forbidden error is an HTTP status code which appears when we don’t have permissions to access a specific page or a resource on our website, most probably because of some improper configuration of our web server. In most cases, it may take more time to actually identify and find what exactly is causing this 403 forbidden error on WordPress, than fixing the error itself.

TuxMachines: DebEX KDE Plasma Is a Pure Debian GNU/Linux 10 "Buster" Distro with Linux 4.13

Friday 27th of October 2017 08:49:13 PM

GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton recently released a new build of his Debian-based DebEX KDE Plasma distribution, which is the first release based on the upcoming Debian GNU/Linux 10 "Buster" OS.

DebEX KDE Plasma Build 171023 is here to replace last year's Build 161001, bringing components from both the Debian Sid and Debian Testing repositories, which means that it doesn't contain any packages from Ubuntu, nor Kubuntu operating systems, thus making it a bleeding-edge GNU/Linux distribution.

Security: Amazon, Microsoft, and John Draper

  • Amazon security camera could be remotely disabled by rogue couriers

    However, researchers from Rhino Security Labs found attacking the camera's Wi-Fi with a distributed denial of service attack, which sends thousands of information requests to the device, allowed them to freeze the camera. It would then continue to show the last frame broadcast, rather than going offline or alerting the user it had stopped working.

  • Pentagon contractor leaves social media spy archive wide open on Amazon
    A Pentagon contractor left a vast archive of social-media posts on a publicly accessible Amazon account in what appears to be a military-sponsored intelligence-gathering operation that targeted people in the US and other parts of the world. The three cloud-based storage buckets contained at least 1.8 billion scraped online posts spanning eight years, researchers from security firm UpGuard's Cyber Risk Team said in a blog post published Friday. The cache included many posts that appeared to be benign, and in many cases those involved from people in the US, a finding that raises privacy and civil-liberties questions. Facebook was one of the sites that originally hosted the scraped content. Other venues included soccer discussion groups and video game forums. Topics in the scraped content were extremely wide ranging and included Arabic language posts mocking ISIS and Pashto language comments made on the official Facebook page of Pakistani politician Imran Khan.

  • Iconic hacker booted from conferences after sexual misconduct claims surface
    John Draper, a legendary figure in the world of pre-digital phone hacking known as "phreaking," has been publicly accused of inappropriate sexual behavior going back nearly two decades. According to a new Friday report by BuzzFeed News, Draper, who is also known as "Captain Crunch," acted inappropriately with six adult men and minors between 1999 and 2007 during so-called "energy" exercises, which sometimes resulted in private invitations to his hotel room. There, Draper allegedly made unwanted sexual advances. As a result of the new revelations, Draper, 74, is now no longer welcome at Defcon. Michael Farnum, the founder of HOU.SEC.CON, told Ars on Friday afternoon that Draper, who had been scheduled to speak in April 2018, was disinvited.

Debian Developers

  • Joey Hess: stupid long route
    Yesterday, I surpassed all that, and I did it in a way that hearkens right back to the original story. I had two computers, 20 feet apart, I wanted one to talk to the other, and the route between the two ended up traveling not around the Earth, but almost the distance to the Moon. I was rebuilding my home's access point, and ran into a annoying bug that prevented it from listening to wifi. I knew it was still connected over ethernet to the satellite receiver. I connected my laptop to the satellite receiver over wifi. But, I didn't know the IP address to reach the access point. Then I remembered I had set it up so incoming ssh to the satellite receiver was directed to the access point.
  • I am now a Debian Developer
    On the 6th of April 2017, I finally took the plunge and applied for Debian Developer status. On 1 August, during DebConf in Montréal, my application was approved. If you’re paying attention to the dates you might notice that that was nearly 4 months ago already. I was trying to write a story about how it came to be, but it ended up long. Really long (current draft is around 20 times longer than this entire post). So I decided I’d rather do a proper bio page one day and just do a super short version for now so that someone might end up actually reading it.

Programming: GNU Nano, Software Engineering Talent Shortage, HHVM (PHP)

  • GNU Nano Latest Version 2.9.0
    GNU nano 2.9.0 "Eta" introduces the ability to record and replay keystrokes (M-: to start and stop recording, M-; to play the macro back), makes ^Q and ^S do something useful by default (^Q starts a backward search, and ^S saves the current file), changes ^W to start always a forward search, shows the number of open buffers (when more than one) in the title bar, no longer asks to press Enter when there are errors in an rc file, retires the options '--quiet' and 'set quiet' and 'set backwards', makes indenting and unindenting undoable, will look in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME for a nanorc file and in $XDG_DATA_HOME for the history files, adds a history stack for executed commands (^R^X), does not overwrite the position-history file of another nano, and fixes a score of tiny bugs.
  • GNU Nano Text Editor Can Now Record & Replay Keystrokes
    GNU Nano 2.9 is now available as the latest feature release of this popular CLI text editor and it's bringing several new capabilities. First up, GNU Nano 2.9 has the ability to record and replay keystrokes within the text editor. M-: is used to start/stop the keystroke recording session while M-; is used to playback the macro / recorded keystrokes.
  • 2018's Software Engineering Talent Shortage— It’s quality, not just quantity

  • Facebook Releases HHVM 3.23 With OpenSSL 1.1 Support, Experimental Bytecode Emitter
    HHVM 3.23 has been released as their high performance virtual machine for powering their Hack programming language and current PHP support. As mentioned back in September though, Facebook will stop focusing on PHP 7 compatibility in favor of driving their own Hack programming language forward. It's after their next release, HHVM 3.24, in early 2018 they will stop their commitment to supporting PHP5 features and at the same time not focus on PHP7 support. Due to the advancements made by upstream PHP on improving their performance, etc, Facebook is diverting their attention to instead just bolstering Hack and thus overtime the PHP support within HHVM will degrade.

Linux 4.14 File-System Benchmarks: Btrfs, EXT4, F2FS, XFS

Our latest Linux file-system benchmarking is looking at the performance of the mainline Btrfs, EXT4, F2FS, and XFS file-systems on the Linux 4.14 kernel compared to 4.13 and 4.12. In looking to see how the file-system/disk performance has changed if at all under the newly released Linux 4.14 kernel, I carried out some 4.12/4.13/4.14 benchmarks using Btrfs/EXT4/F2FS/XFS while freshly formatting the drive each time and using the default mount options.
