schestowitz[TR]"Brave has had issues. I'm security and privacy oriented, been implementing measures to protect that for many years. Brave showed conflicts, and I avoided it. I would recommend doing more research on it. Pale Moon is so far the best (for Windows)."Dec 13 08:17

schestowitz                                    <blockquote>Dec 13 11:04
schestowitz                                        <p>In previous posts the topic of color management in Cairo was examined. Since then people have told me a few things about the issue. According to them (and who am I do to proper background research and fact checking, I'm just someone writing on the Internet) there are a few fundamental problems with Cairo. The main one is that Cairo's imaging model is difficult to implement in GPU shaders. It also is (again, Dec 13 11:04
schestowitzaccording to Internet rumors) pretty much impossible to make work with wide gamut and HDR content.</p>Dec 13 11:04

schestowitz                                    <blockquote>Dec 13 11:08
schestowitz                                        <p>As we covered in “History of FreeBSD Part 4: BSD and TCP/IP”, TCP/IP was brought to Unix with BSD first. Many common network utilities like ifconfig, route and netstat date back to the 4.2BSD release and spread from there to other Unix systems. Linux started out with similar utilities modelled on the BSD utilities; these packages continue to be widely available, but most modern Linux distributions have Dec 13 11:08
schestowitzdeprecated them in favor of alternate utilities such as ip(8).</p>Dec 13 11:08
schestowitz                                        <p>The change on Linux came about alongside a redesign of the kernel interfaces where use of the ioctl(2) system call was replaced by a more flexible socket based interface called netlink. Interestingly, netlink support was recently added to FreeBSD and should be available in FreeBSD 14. This is mainly relevant to the use of the linuxulator, for running Linux applications and containers, but should also make Dec 13 11:08
schestowitzit easier to port Linux software to FreeBSD.</p>Dec 13 11:08

schestowitz                                        <p>As a thank-you to our army of very patient enthusiast customers in the run-up to the holiday season this year, we’ve been able to set aside a little over a hundred thousand units, split across Zero W, 3A+ and the 2GB and 4GB variants of Raspberry Pi 4, for single-unit sales. These are flowing into the Approved Reseller channel now, and this is already translating into better availability figures on Dec 13 18:07

For those of you looking to buy a Raspberry Pi for hobby projects or prototyping, the advice we gave back in April still holds: always buy from an Approved Reseller (they’re under contract with us to sell at no more than the RRP); use tools like rpilocator to keep an eye on which resellers have recently received stock; and consider whether your project is a Dec 13 18:07

-TechBytesBot/ | Trisquel 11 on NV41PZ: First impressions – Simon Josefsson's blogDec 13 18:09
schestowitz                                <p>My NovaCustom NV41PZ laptop arrived a couple of days ago, and today I had some time to install it. You may want to read about my purchasing decision process first. I expected a rough ride to get it to work, given the number of people claiming that modern laptops can’t run fully free operating systems. I first tried the Trisquel 10 live DVD and it booted fine including network, but the mouse trackpad did not work. Dec 13 18:09
schestowitzBefore investigating it, I noticed a forum thread about Trisquel 11 beta3 images, and being based on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS and has Linux-libre 5.15 it seemed better to start with more modern software. After installing through the live DVD successfully, I realized I didn’t like MATE but wanted to keep using GNOME. I reverted back to installing a minimal environment through the netinst image, and manually installed GNOME (apt-get install gnome) since I Dec 13 18:09
schestowitzprefer that over MATE, together with a bunch of other packages. I’ve been running it for a couple of hours now, and here is a brief summary of the hardware components that works.</p>Dec 13 18:09
