Realitätsverweigerung


In den vergangenen zwei Tagen habe ich zwei nahezu identische Gespräche mit zwei verschiedenen, intelligenten Erwachsenen geführt. Das lief ungefähr so:

Sie: Der Support für Windows 7 läuft aus, mir graut schon vor Windows 10.

Ich: Probier's mit Linux, das funktioniert besser.

Sie: Ich will bei dem bleiben, was ich schon kenne.

Ich: Du kennst Windows 10 auch nicht und nach allem, was ich weiß, spioniert es dich nicht nur mehr aus als Windows 7, es funktioniert auch schlechter, da kannst du auch Linux lernen, statt dich über Windows 10 zu ärgern

Sie: Aber ich will bei dem bleiben, was ich schon kenne.

Ich: seufz

@Taraak Cynos
talking about the difference between traditional tech an high tech, in which moment you "draw" the line?
Local/global methodology, not just resources, but more about origin. Traditional technology could be of foreign origin, but available locally. Also, real traditional technologies are not transmitted through publications, but through active contact with the carrier.
what is your consideration of the investigation (in general) and the free software development (in particular)?
Things are very bad now, since Microsoft realized that it couldn’t win Open Source, proprietators decided to buy and take control of the Open Source:

Bad news:
This year, the hacking of the Linux kernel and most of the open projects (nginx, OpenSSL, Apache httpd) were excluded from the prize nominations. In the past years, hacking was limited to the demonstration of a 0-day Linux kernel vulnerability in 2017 that allows a local user to elevate their privileges in the system. Distribution Ubuntu removed from the number of environments for hacking. Of the open projects, only browsers (Firefox, Chrome) and VirtualBox are left in the nominations, but exploits for them must be demonstrated in the Windows environment.

and what about the intangible technology?
I am not familiar with such, please give at least one specific example.

It contains a compilation of texts relating grassroot situations where strategies have been developed to share, distribute and experience cultural content outside of the confines of local economies, politics or laws. These stories recount the experiences of individuals from India, Cuba, Brazil, Mexico, Mali, China and UK.

The book is structured in four parts and begins with a collection of stories on piracy dating back to the invention of the printing press and expanding to broader issues: historical and modern antipiracy technologies, geographically specific issues, as well as the rules of the Warez scene, its charters, structure and visual culture.

Linus: 5.0 kernel is coming...

From Linus Torvalds
Date Sun, 6 Jan 2019 18:14:15 -0800
Subject Linux 5.0-rc1

So this was a fairly unusual merge window with the holidays, and as a
result I'm not even going to complain about the pull requests that
ended up coming in late. It all mostly worked out fine, I think. And
lot of people got their pull requests in early, and hopefully had a
calm holiday season. Thanks again to everybody.

The numbering change is not indicative of anything special. If you
want to have an official reason, it's that I ran out of fingers and
toes to count on, so 4.21 became 5.0. There's no nice git object
numerology this time (we're about 6.5M objects in the git repo), and
there isn't any major particular feature that made for the release
numbering either. Of course, depending on your particular interests,
some people might well find a feature they like so much that they
think it can do as a reason for incrementing the major number.

So go wild. Make up your own reason for why it's 5.0.

Because as usual, there's a lot of changes in there. Not because this
merge window was particularly big - but even our smaller merge windows
aren't exactly small. It's a very solid and average merge window with
just under 11k commits (or about 11.5k if you count merges).

The stats look fairly normal. About 50% is drivers, 20% is
architecture updates, 10% is tooling, and the remaining 20% is all
over (documentation, networking, filesystems, header file updates,
core kernel code..). Nothing particular stands out, although I do like
seeing how some ancient drivers are getting put out to pasture
(coughtisdncough).

As usual even the shortlog is much too big to post, so the summary
below is only a list of the pull requests I merged.

Go test. Kick the tires. Be the first kid on your block running a 5.0
pre-release kernel.

The #linux distro I eventually decided on


I was fortunate to get lots of help here on Diaspora back in Nov or Dec 2018 about possible Linux distros for me to try on my old laptop that has 2G RAM. I wanted to update people with what eventually happened. Firstly, a huge thanks to everyone who commented on my previous post and questions. I'm very sorry I can't mention everyone here - it won't let me do drafts and I don't think I can remember more than a few names off the top of my head. @Robin , @Y A , @Anmol Sharma , @the Gring, @koen@protagio.social were a few among many who helped me. Thanks also to all who re-shared my previous posts too ( @Passagier 451, @Marcus Meyer and many more), allowing me to receive help from more people than I would have otherwise. I appreciate this very much.

The results of what happened


I tried MX LInux. I did a full install, and it was certainly fast and reliable. A very nice distro. However, there were a few aesthetic issues that were not to my taste, and that I would see every day (verbose startup messages; the sign-in box for when the screen is woken up, etc). There weren't any functional issues, besides me being unclear on how to apply updates. I'm sure I could have resolved all of those with a little research, but I wasn't sure that I wanted to put in the time to do it.

Again, I'm not saying that MX Linux was bad; it was in fact a very good distro and it ran fast. A great option. I just wanted to see if there was something that was a bit more 'me' when used out-of-the-box.

So I looked for another distro. My requirements were:
  • Debian-based (I wanted the Synaptic package manager)
  • Non-Ubuntu-based (was tired of Ubuntu putting in stuff in updates that wasn't always stable)
  • Suitable for systems with low RAM for my 2G laptop.
This resulted in not too many options!

First I tried Debian itself when I found it came with an XFCE version, but I couldn't get the screen graphics to display in proper resolution, even after using fixes for the screen resolution in tutorials found online.

Finally, I tried BunsenLabs Linux. This turned out to suit me well out of the box. Although the OpenBox windows manager was not as user-friendly for me (a newbie) to configure as a DE like XFCE, I did notice that the distro ran fast out of the box, and that OpenBox was going to be very customizable later down the track (when I have more time to spare). #bunsenlabs did a great job of providing it with some reasonable choices of customization out of the box, so initially I just went with one of their default choices.

So, that's what I've been up to, and I now have BunsenLabs Linux on my laptop, and it's been working out well so far. Thanks again to all who helped previously with comments, ideas and suggestions.

Create a #gif from a #video in #Linux using #cli.
ffmpeg -i video.mp4 -r 5 'frame-%03d.png'

thenconvert -delay 20 -loop 0 -layers Optimize \*.png output.gif

Source
Remark: Do this in an empty directory and use the absolute path to the video.

Requirement: imagemagick (inclused convert) and ffmpeg have to be installed.

Explaination from remote:
-r 5 stands for FPS value
for better quality choose bigger number
adjust the value with the -delay in 2nd step
to keep the same animation speed

%03d gives sequential filename number in decimal form

-delay 20 means the time between each frame is 0.20 seconds
which match 5 fps above.

-loop 0 means repeat forever

- layers Optimize reduces the size of the output gif

The Last Day of 2018


This is the last day of the year 2018. It is time for many to propose resolutions for them to do in 2019. I personally will start a 90 day #Bible reading plan. I am not sure if it is much of a resolution, but I am going to install an encrypted #Arch #Linux (Or maybe #Parabola #GNU /Linux-libre) operating system on my main machine before I travel. I also will not be on diaspora* nor Mastodon for the next month.

I also have been thinking of what has happened in 2018. It has been an impressive year, and looking back I see some amazing things God has done in my life in particular. I cannot wait for what God has for me in this next year. Since I will be moving to Europe for a while (which is all I will say publicly).

Like many others, I will stay up until midnight and enjoy the festivities and the countdown. Like everyone else, I feel that this last New Year's just passed, and am amazed at how soon 2019 has come.

This last year I have started two different projects which I plan to continue working on. Namely, #Heb12 (a Bible app system), and #LibreCheck (a check-in system like KidCheck for daycares, Sunday Schools, etc.). If you have seen my previous post, you will know that I plan to do a lot of work on LibreCheck in the next few months (if you want to help out, please talk to me!).

What are you planning to do this next year?

What happened with Linux in 2018 - some interesting developments

Yes Linux still dominates on servers and smartphones and is nowhere near starting to take over the desktop (no it won't happen in 2019) but interesting movements have taken place on the landscape, some of which I've experienced myself:
1. Manjaro Linux firmly established at the top of Distrowatch - I'd also migrated from Linux Mint (2nd on the list) to Manjaro KDE a bit over a year back and I'd never heard of Manjaro before that. It is Arch based (not Debian like Ubuntu and Mint) but is a rolling update release which means no big update install every two years, and easy install of the latest Linux kernel.
2. On gaming, some of the biggest news was Proton on Steam which allows over 3,000 Windows-only games to run well on Linux.
3. WINE has also advanced a lot as I can now run World of Tanks PC (Windows only) on Linux using WINE, directly from my shared Windows drive.
4. Yes, Linus apologised for his behaviour but the important thing is the new code of conduct around kernel development.
5. And yes we expect Linux v5 but it is just a number and will, in fact, be meaningless.

pdftotext myfile.pdf - | wc -w

And you get the number of words.

That's it.

Here is some more information about this social network.
Welcome to the Federation!

The Federation is a global social network that works by having different computers talk to each other, instead of having one computer having full control over the network and people’s data.

The Diaspora* Federation includes five different projects:
Diaspora\* - FAQ 
Friendica - FAQ 
Hubzilla 
Socialhome 
GangGo

They are interconnected

Each of those projects are installed onto different computers called nodes, and those nodes talk to the others, and together make the full Federation. If someone is sharing something with you on a different node, your content will be sent to that node.

Unlike other networks like Facebook, you see what you want, not what they want you to see. Content does not get bumped up because of popularity or what you do on the social network.

#Hashtags are essential to The Federation. You follow hashtags, and posts tagged with it appear in your stream. Hashtags open up your posts to different communities. For example, the #newhere tag is followed by people that want to welcome new users into the community, and the #linux tag is followed by people that like GNU/Linux systems, or just computers in general.

Just remember, if you want to find content here remember to follow #hashtags, and other people.

When you post things there is an option called visibility. It decides who sees your posts. Public means everyone can see them (even non-users and search engines), “all aspects” (or similar) means only your contacts can see them, etc,

It is our job as the community to make content, invite people, fight spam, and even work on the projects themselves.

Have fun in this community.

For example, the #newhere tag is followed by people that want to welcome new users into the community, and the #linux tag is followed by people that like GNU/Linux systems, or just computers in general.

Just remember, if you want to find content here remember to follow #hashtags, and other people.

When you post things there is an option called visibility. It decides who sees your posts. Public means everyone can see them (even non-users and search engines), "all aspects" (or similar) means only your contacts can see them, etc,

It is our job as the community to make content, invite people, fight spam, and even work on the projects themselves.

Have fun in this community.

Diaspora is a great platform with lots of activity. Stick around, give it some time and it will grow on you. The interactions here are far better then anywhere else I have got to.

Here is some more information about this social network.

Welcome to the Federation!


The Federation is a global social network that works by having different computers talk to each other, instead of having one computer having full control over the network and people's data.

The Diaspora* Federation includes five different projects:They are interconnected

Each of those projects are installed onto different computers called nodes, and those nodes talk to the others, and together make the full Federation. If someone is sharing something with you on a different node, your content will be sent to that node.
