why is open source so shit?

8 posts omitted. Click reply to view.



You get what you paid for. At least with open source you can apply your patch for yourself and use your own version. With proprietary all you can do is submit a bug report and hope it doesn't fly under the radar.

This is also why software that can be extended is so good, people should be able to retrofit their software without having to alter the source code.



The question remains: why are you trying to help those dyke niggers and not exploring the shit out of the security issue you found?





not even a phoneposter, sad.


>bug is open for 7 years but the person fixing on the bug died

i am not joking about this



Thanks, was just going to say this.

OP is so retarded that they can't even fork, decentralize, and announce. Shit happens all the time because none are paying libre software. If people paid for libre software like they do proprietary, we would have a team of committers and testers with core developing team. Kaniini was on point:

Anyone who uses tabbed surf has brain damage. For a number of reasons, a window manager is a smarter and suckless alternative to tab idiocy. That is, of course, if you're using a decent WM that can search for different windows.

Also installed NT4.0 Workstation on one of my T22's today, pretty fun!


New thinkpad user here. Bought a T530 at work. Does NOT have descreet nvidia. Plan to coreboot it (as libreboot is not proven compatible yet). I also have a dock. pretty hapy with it so far, except chiclet keyboard. I plan to do the hack.

I am just generally curious if there are any recommendations for this thinkpad other than what I already mentioned. Cool modifications, changes, etc? I'm also curious if I could simply put a higher-resolution screen into it. My thinkpad ios a 1080p screen, and I'd like a 1600x1200 screen like I had on my old Dell Latitude D820.




Go nuts, this is a W530 but it's basically the same as a T530.

Where to begin? I want so much to be in control of my computer. Yet I don’t want to make the leap whereby I could potentially fuck up my hardware indefinitely. Wat do?

Somehow, X seems to start using different drivers all the time. Screenfetch sometimes shows NV1.. (forgot the last two digits), sometimes llvmpipe (mpv constantly tells me this one sucks but the performance actually seems better), I also remember nouveaufb from a long time ago. Now the latter didn't show up since I've rebuilt X and I plan on installing the proprietary nvidia drivers anyway but for now I'm too lazy for that and can't help wondering - why does it do that? Accidentally getting a driver installed that sucks because of some idiotic setting may happen, but wouldn't X then still load the same driver every time? I mean it's not just screenfetch, mpv notices too and I really think the llvmpipe is less glitchy when it comes to playing back multiple files at once. But that might be a sample rate thing. Music tends to be 44,1, video tends to be 44,8. On some setups that might end up like two media players trying to choke each other to death both wanting to fuck with the same clock. Depends strongly on the application though.



man 1 ebuild.



>(mpv constantly tells me this one sucks but the performance actually seems better)

If you have a really shitty GPU like an integrated one, doing everything in software can often be faster than doing it in opengl/vulkan. As for your issue, no idea how to fix it.



It's a 1060 after all, that shouldn't be the issue. Unless the nouveau driver sucks this much, but I think it's not the proper one. I wonder, those who have good experiences with nouveau drivers, what does screenfetch call your cpu? What's the proper name, is the NV1something correct or should it just be nouveau?



X has the magical(read spectacularly shit) way of loading modules known as lazy module loading. Its incredibly broken. In your case you can fix it by specifying the driver you want in xorg.conf

Since there's a few threads discussing alternative chat protocols, I figured we should attempt to centralize it in order to have a decent discuss the strengths and weaknesses in our preferred clients/servers.

As far as I know this is a fairly complete list of the currently most common chat protocols and applications used by privacy conscious users. If something was forgotten feel free to add.


The long standing champion of ez internet based chats. Not very secure by default.


Currently the most well known/tested privacy conscious chat protocol. Used by many different users around the world for secure communications


Phone based e2e encrypted messaging client and protocol. Trusted by many, has created the new and interesting encryption method known as double-ratchet.


Similar to signal but owned by a Russian, one of the largest private messaging platforms in russia




A fairly new decentralized chat protocol that supports e2e encryption. The main matrix.org server has a CoC as well as pretty poor privacy protections from the server admins. Hosting your own matrix server appears to be safe and is indeed end to end encrypted. More testing needs to be done as the devs don't seem as paranoid about privacy as they should.


A P2P and E2E encrypted chat network based on a DHT, pretty decent but comes with the usual problems of P2P software. Supports groups, voice, and video although the video still sucks.

>inb4 great we have another thread about chat services.

Fuck you I hope there's more threads about it, it's good to have discusPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

P2p programs "leak" your IP so others may connect to you. Why do retards keep spouting this as a security concern? Did we get invaded by redditors who don't understand basic networking?

Doesn't it also support Tor so you don't even need to worry about that?



>most are feature requests

>didn't even mention Wire or Signal

>too stupid to realize that telegram doesn't have this type of error reporting because it's not open source

Wow, kys



Trolls, idiots, and government agents keep repeating these shit arguments. Tox is a chat network that doesn't rely on people maintaining a server, a central location to host a chat forum. The way to make this work without a server is through P2P networking techniques. You can tunnel your Tox connection through Tor if that's what you really want.



Oh god you dumb retard let me filter for bug tags for you: https://github.com/vector-im/riot-android/labels/bug

>>didn't even mention Wire or Signal

Yes anon I can lookup 2 more git repos for you. I guess that would be above your ability.

Old thread, >>>/tech/991375 has hit 400 replies and is no longer bumping.

>What is nanochan?

Nanochan is an imageboard with its software written in Lua.

>Why is it speshul?

Nanochan does not use or require Javascript in any way, shape or form.

Nanochan is totally immune to XSS due to the fact that it does not use Javascript combined with a restrictive Content-Security-Policy header. To date, zero security flaws have been exploited.

Nanochan operates exclusively through a Tor hidden service and does not restrict Tor users in any way. Clearnet users may use a tor2web gateway.

Nanochan's source code is small, reasonably clean and easy to understand.

The website itself is available at http://nanochanxv2lxnqi.onion

The most recent source code is always available at http://nanochanxv2lxnqi.onion/source.lua

Use this thread for feature suggestions, questions, etc. Feel free to use the /test/ board on nanochan to check for bugs and vulnerabilities.

>No point using a VPN if you're just going to tell them who you are

As long as you haven't allowed yourself to be profiled by doing retarded shit like having cookies on every website doing things that identify you during a single browsing session does not completely negate the benefit of VPN's over the long run. To imply otherwise is just dogmatic autism that has no representation within the reality of only anonymity.



You should always keep personal browsing and anonymous browsing separate. It's just common sense, friend.



Of course. But the notion that there is no reason to use a VPN for regular browsing is a bit ridiculous. I use VPN's and isolate their purpose within virtual machines. One is for shit-posting, one is for work and general computing, another one is for degeneracy.



Do you trust the system admins on the other end of that VPN 100%? I sure don't. I'm not even 100% sure that they don't keep logs.

>An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure



Once again you're being very dogmatic. VPN's, TOR, none of it is supposed to be a bullet proof system and none of it is advertised as one. It's like putting a sign in your lawn to show people you have a state of the art alarm system installed. If someone is dedicated enough and for whatever reason REALLY wants to rob your house in particular you're fucked either way. But more likely than not it will be a good enough deterrent and have burglars picking another house instead. There is no harm in using VPN, it can only serve to make you more anonymous at face value which is all 99.99% of people will ever need. And that's not even mentioning the fact that they are essentially mandatory if you're doing anything over wifi.
