  • Greece about to secure Router Freedom but leaves fiber out

    Greece is one step closer to securing Router Freedom, but regulators are excluding fiber (FTTH) connections from the legislation. A coalition of organisations, allies of the FSFE, is now requesting that lawmakers reconsider this and thus safeguard the freedom of all users.

    Since 2021, the regulatory process that defines the network termination point (the NTP) in Greece has been carried out by the Hellenic Telecommunications and Post Commission (EETT). Defining the NTP is necessary to determine whether users have the right to choose their own router and modem or if their Internet Service Providers (ISPs) have the final say over network equipment.

    In April 2022, we welcomed that the Greek regulator proposed legislation safeguarding Router Freedom for common networks, such as DSL and coaxial. This is a leap forward in safeguarding consumer rights. However, in the same proposal, EETT has explicitly excluded fiber connections (FTTH), a decision that has the potential of negatively impacting end-users’ rights. The proposed regulation sets the NTP for fiber connections in a position that would make the optical terminal equipment part of the ISPs’ networks, making home network access equipment the property of the ISP.

    The FSFE assisted a coalition of organisations to respond to the EETT’s public consultation, supporting the regulator to implement Router Freedom for all types of internet connection, including FTTH.

  • Notes on running containers with bubblewrap

    Hello! About a year ago I got mad about Docker container startup time. This was because I was building an nginx playground where I was starting a new “container” on every HTTP request, and so for it to feel reasonably snappy, nginx needed to start quickly.

    Also, I was running this project on a pretty small cloud machine (256MB RAM), a small CPU, so I really wanted to avoid unnecessary overhead.

    I’ve been looking for a way to run containers faster since then, but I couldn’t find one until last week when I discovered bubblewrap!! It’s very fast and I think it’s super cool, but I also ran into a bunch of fun problems that I wanted to write down for my future self.

  • Fix: Why Isn’t Linux Detecting My Wi-Fi Adapter?

    Historically, Linux has had a somewhat strained relationship with Wi-Fi cards. In recent years, the situation has changed considerably—and for the better—but it is still possible to boot into your new Linux installation and get that sinking feeling when you realize you’ve got no Wi-Fi.

    Installation routines are very good at identifying the various components of the target computer and configuring itself to work with that hardware. But problems can still happen.

    Troubleshooting hardware issues is difficult, especially if the only computer you have on hand is the broken device. Obviously, not everything presented here will be applicable to all cases. But hopefully, something below will either fix your issue or point you in the right direction.

  • Open-sourced tool speeds up Linux scripts via parallelization | Network World

    MIT has open-sourced pa.sh (also called pash), a tool that can dramatically speed up Linux scripts by using parallelization, saving time and without risk of introducing errors.

    The process of parallelization first examines a script for code that can be run separately and independently, so not all scripts can benefit from the tool. But when pa.sh does find portions that can run independently, it runs them in parallel on separate CPUs. It also uses other techniques to get the code to run faster.

    Below is a demonstration I ran on my home Fedora box, first running a script on its own and then again using pa.sh. Note that this script was provided with the pa.sh tool and lends itself to parallelization. It’s not nearly as demanding as scripts that might process gigabytes of data in a scientific or artificial-intelligence lab, so the results are not dramatic.

  • Building in Kubernetes Using Tekton

    Continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) principles offer multiple benefits to software organizations, including faster time to market, higher-quality code, and simpler and faster fault isolation. Applications built using CI/CD pipeline best practices tend to see a huge increase in users over time, necessitating a migration from a large codebase and low-scalability monolithic architecture to a more manageable and efficient microservice architecture.

    Kubernetes is one of the most popular platforms for automating the management, deployment, and scaling processes of microservice applications. Because Kubernetes is complex, though, a framework can help developers and operations teams use the platform to follow CI/CD practices in building applications. This is where Tekton comes in.

  • Best ways to incorporate security into the software development life cycle

    The software development life cycle is not a one-off process that software developers can implement in a linear form. Instead, there are phases of the SDLC that intertwine into many loops where thorough checks are carried out to ensure the proper outcome of the software.

    However, it’s not just enough to loop through the phases of SDLC without the proper integration of security checks in each phase. So, what, then, makes a secure software development life cycle?

Raspberry Pi Restores Guitar Amp, Complete With Effects

tuxmachines.org - Sre, 06/29/2022 - 04:27

Restoring old hardware is always more fun when you can throw in a Raspberry Pi. This project, created by maker and developer David Silverman, does just that, using a Pi to power an old Vox guitar amplifier. Not only does it work as an amplifier, it also has a few special effects thrown in to create custom sounds.

This Pi-powered guitar amp system is housed inside the cabinet of an old Vox amplifier that, according to Silverman, is no longer working. A Pi 3B+ brings back the original functionality, with the help of a class D amplifier and some custom Python scripts created by Silverman himself. The case has been modified to house the Pi and features panels with port access, as well as knobs for the effects array.

Consent & Debian's illegitimate constitution

tuxmachines.org - Sre, 06/29/2022 - 02:55

When an association is founded, whether it is incorporated or not, each member must give positive consent to be a member and to be bound by the organization's constitution. Being a member and being governed by the constitution are inseparable. The constitution is effectively a type of contract between the members. If a contract is not signed, it is not valid and if a member has not assented to create the association, they are not a member at all.

Between 1993 and 1998, the original authors of Debian worked together without a constitution. They achieved a lot.

When a constitution was proposed in 1998, 357 co-authors of Debian were asked to vote on the constitution. This is not really voting though: people who gave a positive vote were agreeing to be members. People who gave a negative vote or did not vote at all have not consented to the constitution and therefore there is no way we can think of them as members of anything.

The names of people who voted were published. Those people, just 86 developers, became members of an association by giving their positive assent to be governed by a constitution in their dealings with each other.

That means there are 357 - 86 = 271 people, or 76 percent, who were satisfied to work on Debian as joint authors without any notion of an association.

A few weeks after 86 people formed their association, Jonathan McDowell copied 489 keys into the Debian keyring repository. Some people have more than one key so it is not exactly 489 people. By combining the 86 confirmed members with all the people who did not choose to be a member, McDowell and others have made it hard for the rest of the world to distinguish who is a member and who is simply an author of Debian.

Oops, I spilled the beans

tuxmachines.org - Sre, 06/29/2022 - 02:52

Saturday June 18: I had some curl time in the afternoon and I was just about to go edit the four security advisories I had pending for the next release, to brush up the language and check that they read fine, when it dawned on me.

These particular security advisories were still in draft versions but maybe 90% done. There were details, like dates and links to current in-progress patches, left to update. I also like to reread them a few times, especially in a webpage rendered format, to make sure they are clear and accurate in describing the problem, the solution and all other details, before I consider them ready for publication.

I checked out my local git branch where I expected the advisories to reside. I always work on pending security details in a local branch named security-next-release or something like that. The branch and its commits remain private and undisclosed until everything is ready for publication.

(I primarily use git command lines in terminal windows.)

The latest commits in my git log output did not show the advisories so I did a rebase but git promptly told me there was nothing to rebase! Hm, did I use another branch this time?

It took me a few second to realize my mistake. I saw four commits in the git master branch containing my draft advisories and then it hit me: I had accidentally pushed them to origin master and they were publicly accessible!

The secrets I was meant to guard until the release, I had already mostly revealed to the world – for everyone who was looking.

Fortunately, for nearly every usage, there are tools to enable you to encrypt your data…from transferring data online to storing data on a locally attached storage, even encrypting your entire drive.

    Since gpg is built into almost every Linux system, you won’t have to install anything to get this working from the command line. I’ll also show how to gain this functionality within the Nautilus (GNOME Files) file manager tool.

  • Using fwupdmgr to update NVME firmware – nullr0ute's blog

    The fabulous fwupdmgr provides the ability to easily update firmware that is published to Linux Vendor Firmware Service (LVFS) but it can also be used to apply updates that aren’t necessarily in LVFS. One type of firmware that it supports updating is NVME firmware, that’s basically any NMVE, because the standard specifies a standardised mechanism for updating the firmware on all NVME devices.

    I had a need to update a NVME firmware in an aarch64 device to see if it fixed an issue I was seeing. The Crucial P2 supported options were of course x86 only. The ISO download actually contained a little LinuxOS in an initrd on the .iso. The advice from Richard the fwupd technical lead was to “Look for a ~4mb high entropy blob” so mounting it up, I mounted the iso, extracted the initrd, and then used fwupdmmgr to apply the new firmware.

Fixing test coverage reports in at-spi2-core

tuxmachines.org - Tor, 06/28/2022 - 22:42

At-spi2-core has some peculiar modules. It does not provide a single program or library that one can just run by hand. Instead, it provides a couple of libraries and a couple of daemons that get used through those libraries, or through raw DBus calls.

In particular, at-spi2-registryd is the registry daemon for accessibility, which multiplexes requests from assitive technologies (ATs) like screen readers into applications. It doesn't even use the session DBus; it registers itself in a separate DBus daemon specific to accessibility, to avoid too much traffic in the main session bus.

at-spi2-registryd gets started up as soon as something requires the accessibility APIs, and remains running until the user's session ends.

However, in the test runner, there is no session. The daemon runs, and gets a SIGTERM from its parent dbus-daemon when it terminates. So, while at-spi2-registryd has no persistent state that it may care about saving, it doesn't exit "cleanly".

And it turns out that gcc's coverage data gets written out only if the program exits cleanly. When you compile with the --coverage option, gcc emits code that turns on the flag in libgcc to write out coverage information when the program ends (libgcc is the compiler-specific runtime helper that gets linked into normal programs compiled with gcc).

Open Source RISC-V: Serving a Side of Software with Chips

tuxmachines.org - Tor, 06/28/2022 - 22:20

The Linux of chips, the open source RISC-V instruction set architecture, has some big-name backers including Intel, AMD and Nvidia. But the software support is still far from mature.

RISC-V International, the organization responsible for defining the instruction set architecture, has laid out a roadmap to boost low-level software to improve its appeal to hardware and software developers.

Hardware Equivalent to Linux

The chip architecture is free to license, and silicon companies can take the open source design and tweak it to the specific needs. RISC-V is a free alternative to architectures like x86 and ARM, for which customers have to pay licensing fees or royalties. RISC-V is viewed as a hardware equivalent to Linux, which is open source but can be customized to specific needs.

Computers are available with RISC-V chips developed by companies like SiFive. Intel has committed $1 billion to the designing and manufacturing of chips that include RISC-V, ARM and x86, and is partnering with Barcelona Supercomputing Centre to make a RISC-V supercomputing chip.

  • Sizing Up Partitions » Linux Magazine

    Partitioning is a basic step in any Linux installation. Many users breeze past it, content to let the installer use a single partition, or else to accept its recommendations without much thought, sparing themselves the stress of learning yet another task. However, manually partitioning can help to isolate directories from each other, optimize performance, and aid in recovery when troubles arise. If manual partitioning takes some extra time, down the line, you might be glad you make the extra effort.

    As you probably know, Linux is organized into a series of directories, each with its own purpose. Directories can be on the same device, or else a mount point for a separate device. In either case, users are presented with a single directory tree. Usually, each device will be formatted with ext4, although recent Fedora releases default to Btrfs, or on servers, XFS. On systems that include a Windows installation, an ntfs or fat32 partition is included. Partitioning is done on a blank system, or from an external device so that no partition is mounted. Older tools such as fdisk are still around, but today's most common tools are parted (Figure 1) or gparted, its graphical equivalent.

Version 9.0 of the Vim text editor has been released. The biggest change would appear to be the addition of the "Vim9 Script" language for editor customization:

The main goal of Vim9 script is to drastically improve performance. This is accomplished by compiling commands into instructions that can be efficiently executed. An increase in execution speed of 10 to 100 times can be expected. A secondary goal is to avoid Vim-specific constructs and get closer to commonly used programming languages, such as JavaScript, TypeScript and Java.
