What do you guys think about GrapheneOS? If you have a pixel should you flash it or just stick to Lineage?


It looks pretty good, I wish it only supported more devices than just google devices though. If you are debating on which one to install on your pixel, I'd say just chose one and work in a way so that you won't be too bothered to switch back to something more familiar if you don't like it later on


Opinions on /e/ OS? I'm thinking of switching to it soon cause it seems to support my device. The whole alt-cloud they offer is a bit weird, but doesn't seem required


/e/ is just lineageos so there isn't really a point to using it compared to lineage unless you really like the ecosystem

Sup Lainon!
What vps or hosting would you recomend for a poorass dude from poorass country to host a blog?
Anons from lainchan suggested vultr but if there are better choises I would like to know.
Also neocities can't use the audio files in the free plan so I can't use it.

Do you spend long periods away from electricity/internet? If you do, then yes, you're right.

But if it's a case of just moving your things from once house to the next, it's not as bad as you may be imagining, certainly you wouldn't have to reinstall anything. Use your init system to bring up e.g. nginx on startup. Connect ethernet. Then all you need to do is port forward the router to the SBC. It should take a few minutes.


I should mention, if you plan on having a clearnet domain, updating your IP on whatever nameserver you intend to use could be an additional complication. This can be auomated with a DDNS, I personally use afraid.org, there are many.

If you host over Tor or similar, you can ignore this.


I use ssdnode anon. They have a great value compared to vultr and digitalocean if you pay for a couple years at a time.

Like any hosting service it is way more computer than you you need for just a blog. I agree with nixx if that's all you need. I use mine for backups, my website, email hosting and big web sstommes.


get a tiny 128mb ram debian vps at gullo.me


There do seem to be a few companies that are giving away free VPSs, usually at quite a low spec (but enough for a webserver and mail for sure)

One company called euserv seems to give a 1 core, 1gb ram, 10gb storage vps for free. I've tried registering to them with a fake name and number through tor, but it seems they have a manual verification process, so you need to be a bit better at making a fake identity than I was if you really want to stay private (though they don't ask for much more than most other VPS companies)

Another good bet is taking at a look at oracle's "always free" options. They are giving away either a x86_64 2 cores, 1GB ram, 50GB disk server or if you are fine with using ARM then you can get a quad-core system with 24GB ram (pretty good considering its free, "forever")

However as much as I'd like to shill for oracle's amazing free deals, they do require a credit card number (never charged anything though), and they only offer their service to a limited number of countries (though ive heard that people have been able to bypass this with vpns) Also there's also the fact that oracle isn't exactly one of the most trustworthy companies out there.

Though at the end of the day,
a 24GB ram is enough for something like a medium sized minecraft server to play with several friends, especially considering that its free.

Title gives my conclusion from empirical events I witnessed and inside info. PSP runs on the same circuit, but isn't the backdoor per se, which has been around for much longer.

The same way AMD was able to change the crypto algorithms for the Zen chip they licensed to China, they can change how the CPU behaves at any system, even those already deployed. This can also be used to sabotage any program or computation, making BadBIOS vastly nastier than Stuxnet.

American military made a grave mistake to partner with the morons of the Brazilian military, who are letting knowledge of this spread like a fire (and misusing it for petty profit and inside jobs to justify a police state). Israel, UK and France also have access, but are much more professional.


vry compelling, you won't hear stuff like this on /g/!

Your local neighborhood madman is here to drop a bomb, and i'm not talking hiroshima

w o r s e


Honestly gyroscope and accelerometers inside phones (at least for me) has become one of those unnecessary pains I have to deal with. Currently I'm running lineageos, and to my knowledge, I haven't given any apps access to that data (of course except the system itself). Asides from autorotate (which I always keep off), whats the point of those sensors even being there anymore?


>Not even phones are safe
What do you mean? Safe from what? It’s already a tracking device you willingly carry around that they can triangulate.


That's why you use lineage or graphene where you can revoke sensor permissions

I shill for Fedora, quite comfy, werks and feels solid. BTRFS seems cool too along with LVM, wouldn't have gotten to know about them if it weren't for Fedora. What's your favourite distro? Do you want to try any?

I'm still stuck in the 90s. I use Slackware and Debian.
Unironically enjoy the manual work and learning required to set up Slackware the way you want.

Been thinking about trying to enter an archiving career, and apparently the big new thing is to learn2code because that's apparently where the industry is headed etc etc. Funny thing is, they never mentioned any languages or anything. Do you guys have any idea what they might be talking about?


Just lern Python

If you don't want to learn it as your primary career, but rather to supplement whatever else you're doing, my genuine recommendation would actually be to learn web dev. It's easy and thus mocked, but it's basically never not in demand.

Other than that, you could take advice from >>39 and learn an easier language like Python. I'm not sure what archiving is going to involve, but I've found learning a scripting language to automate tasks is also a highly rewarding experience.

What does archiving involve? That might help.

I wouldn't recommend anything more masochistic than the above, unless you're either interested, or are making it a career.

Thanks fellas


I started learning shell scripting and it's been a very rewarding experience so far, as someone who can benefit from the automation due to being on linux.


No kidding, I've got over 30 scripts I've written in $PATH.

I've been looking at alternative operating systems for a while, and stumbled upon illumos. I honestly hadn't heard of it before, but from what it looks like its a derivative of opensolaris.

How should I approach trying to switch to something like this full time? Which distro would you reccomend? Any reasons I shouldn't give it a go?


I'm not sure I'd like something with binary blobs, but I have heard of Illumos before and it has some interesting features, like ZFS, DTrace, and containers, etc. I think it's good to have a knowledge of operating systems that don't use the Linux kernel, as a backup plan of sorts.

>How should I approach trying to switch to something like this full time?

I think the answer to this question is always just to use it as a daily driver for a period of time, and either it'll work for you or it won't. You'll be forced to learn to some degree on the way.

>Any reasons I shouldn't give it a go?

Not unless you have anything more important to be doing.


Use Tribblix which is a fork that’s actually maintained by one man, Peter Tribble.

I learned of NsCDE (https://github.com/NsCDE/NsCDE), which looked aesthetic, and functional. I wanted to share it, but since it probably doesn't fit anywhere else, I made a new thread.

I'm probably too embedded into my current setup (dwm et. all) to switch, but I can't deny the temptation is there.

Do you use a lesser-known desktop environment or standalone window manager? Try to sell me on it.


Openbox is all you need.

This kek.
I run KDE 5 on my main laptop and KDE 4 on Slackware 14.2 on my very old laptop that still has a Celeron 550. Runs like a champ even with wobbly windows and exploding windows too.


File: 1623533200683.png (123 B, 96x40, 12:5, dwm.png)

I have been using dwm for more than a year, and for the last 5 months (when I moved from Arch to Void) is my main window manager, most of the time without having another DE installed alongside it (I sometimes download other DEs and WMs to mess with them and I uninstall them later).

It just works.


I have been using kde for over 10 years now. The only times i remember it "crashing" is when more than just the de was crashing.
I use bspwm now since its simplicity makes it way easier to work with, but kde is still my choice for a de that just works

It's fairly standard for its era, though GEM is interesting and also came standard on the ST. Anything good in the manual?
