This board is for the discussion of all types of technology, whether it be Google Glass, smartphones, OS's, musical instruments, etc. This board is strictly SFW, so unless VR and porn have become one (which it has), nothing of that sorts.

Let's have a fun little thread. Post in this thread and tell the person above you what distribution they should run. They have to run it in a virtual machine for a day or two and can then come back and share experiences or opinions.

I feel like it's easy to get caught in a rut of one or two distributions and I think it would be fun to do this. Also, I would recommend staying away from gentoo or something that will take too long to install.

Pic mostly unrelated.

I'm testing out Refracta, a distribution based on Devuan. Only had it up and running for about 30 minutes, but there doesn't seem to be any issues. The two things I have noticed so far is that the repos are pretty bare, and that Hexchat suffers from a segmentation fault when connecting to a server, but this happens on most Live discs right now, so I think it's a bad version of Hexchat being packaged.

Ships with XFCE, is working on my AMD video card (R9 3xx series), Pale Moon installed with no problems, Neofatch compiled with no issues.

Seems like a complete and functional operating system so far. Might be a solution for those wanting to get away from systemd. Until applications start writing dependencies on systemd.

oh, hey, this looks cool. does it use nonfree drivers? my only issue with devuan is that my wifi card isn't compatible.

It has a wifi configuration tool and non-free drivers available. I use a wired connection so I can't attest to how well it operates.

that sounds interesting. I've never had any issues with systemd, but i know a lot of people do, so it's nice to see something that's relatively user-friendly that's not systemd-based.

Has /t/ tried out LXQT yet? It's extremely well laid out and uses about as much memory as XFCE. Looks a lot like KDE Plasma but without the glitches/loads of RAM usage. All in all, I'd call it an 8.5/10.

 No.1410

I used it when it was called lXDE. Lost interest when it made the change. Did you use lxde?

 No.1411

>>1410
lxde still exists, lxqt is a different project that will eventually replace it. lxqt is not too similar to lxde in function, it's much more aesthetic-based now.

Yes, I've used lxde. It worked and it had no real issues, but I preferred xfce.

 No.1412

tbh, I've never bothered to try anything that wasn't openbox, xfce or i3.
I might give it a try sometime.

LXDE still has components of GNOME and XFCE. I hope LXQt removes this.

If theres anything I've learned going through these, the cia is a bunch of fuckin nerds (THATS RITE U HERD ME CIA)

They have multiple exploits named after pokemon

(Note I am NOT a security expert)

On a more serious note: to sumarize the more serious allegations

>The attack against Samsung smart TVs was developed in cooperation with the United Kingdom's MI5/BTSS. After infestation, Weeping Angel places the target TV in a 'Fake-Off' mode, so that the owner falsely believes the TV is off when it is on. In 'Fake-Off' mode the TV operates as a bug, recording conversations in the room and sending them over the Internet to a covert CIA server.

https://wikileaks.org/ciav7p1/cms/page_13205592.html
The TV exploit only seems possible through USB install and on firmware 1118 and older. Or at least it was in 2015.

>As of October 2014 the CIA was also looking at infecting the vehicle control systems used by modern cars and trucks. The purpose of such control is not specified, but it would permit the CIA to engage in nearly undetectable assassinations.

https://wikileaks.org/ciav7p1/cms/page_13763790.html

>"Year Zero" shows that as of 2016 the CIA had 24 "weaponized" Android "zero days" which it has developed itself and obtained from GCHQ, NSA and cyber arms contractors.

>These techniques permit the CIA to bypass the encryption of WhatsApp, Signal, Telegram, Wiebo, Confide and Cloackman by hacking the "smart" phones that they run on and collecting audio and message traffic before encryption is applied.

This. Also it doesn't do region-based, free memory management like rust does, it's either completely manual memory management, or a gc.

That said Rust isn't without flaws either. I fucking hate the borrow checker so fucking much, it makes a lot of stuff way too verbose. They're trying to improve this but most of their solutions feel like dirty hacks (sugar over sugar over sugar). I wonder what's wrong with doing the borrow checking at call-time (i.e. around call sites in the code at compile time) rather than at definition time (i.e. within the body of a defined function).

 No.1514

>>1513
Can you dumb this down for someone who doesn't know Rust, but still has a decent grasp of programming in general? What's the borrow checker?

 No.1515

>>1514
In order to ensure memory safety, rust uses what is called a borrow checker. Simply put, it rejects programs that cannot be proven to be memory-safe under its definition of memory safety. For example, you may not hold a mutable reference to something while there is a live immutable reference in scope. You can also only have one mutable reference at a time. Etc. This borrow checker causes very complex interactions (also coupled with other concepts of rust) in more complicated programs which can cause a lot of grief.

Let's talk about IPFS (but also other distributed internet technologies).

>What is IPFS?

It's basically BitTorrent on steroids.

>why would one use it

* Same file is accessed with the same hash across whole IPFS and everyone you can reach who has it seeds it. You aren't stuck in one Torrent swarm. Let's say you download a folder, and then it turns out there are some issues with it. If you download a better one you don't have to dl same files again. Individual files you already dl'd are cached. You don't have to move anything, it'll just work. (Don't shove your shit in RARs faggot.)
* You can have an both immutable and mutable addresses, kinda like a Torrent that you can update on the fly.
* As a result you can host static websites (like in Freenet).
* Smaller files that traditionally "aren't worth a torrent" can be viably hosted with IPFS.
* Because it's like a 1 huge torrent, peers are found fast for new downloads. You don't need to wait that much to start a download.
* You can watch your animu while it automatically downloads and seeds. Just point your player to the local link. It's super-fast!

Checked, and also the animation doesn't real.
IPFS go client seems to have some issues: if you run it for too long clearnet sites start blocking you for "unusual traffic", and it murderizes your bandwidth. Known issues from 2015, too. But maybe they'll address it sometime.
At least it works quite well for what it does, it's very fast beside name resolution and name resolution speed is just about to be fixed by pubsub + CRDTs. After that, filecoin and shift (especially shift I think) are going to blow its popularity skyhigh. And with shift we'll have fully dynamic websites on ipfs.

It works on my machine (TM). Hope they fix that soon though. I love it as an idea and really hope it cathces on, at least among the tech-savvy crowd.

 No.1493

>>1491
Definitely. And with ipfs-js (a js implementation of the entire thing), it doesn't need to be restricted to tech-savvy people at all. We'll see what happens. It's actually pretty surprising that there's no already-existing solution for this, honestly.
