Google used portage to easily migrate code into both ARM/x86 devices so that's where the compatibility is. The problem is you won't have sim toolkit for that toy.







Do you happen to be that obsessive reddit troll?

Anyway, what they are offering is far superior to competitors in their market. Its not perfect. Some of their marketing is exaggerated and preachy. It is still the best affordable and accessable option by a very large margin.

OpenBSD on EOMA68 isn't going to drag normalfags towards security, and unless you go full hermit and avoid most humans (good luck getting a job) then the insecurity or inprivacy of the people you interact with directly harms your own.



Why was this thread autosaged?


this whole issue does a pretty good job of demontrating the issue with free software. It just can't compete with proprietary corporate products.

Google can dump tons of money into developing hardware and software (android), since they know they can get money from OEMs and also sell user data to recoup the cost.

Purism or whatever can't do that, so they end up having to hike up the prices to cover their risk, which put their products out of the price range of most freetards. Best solution is to have some corporation sponsor development of a free operating system, kind of like how the linux kernel has paid devs contributing to it working for different companies.

What will YOU do when the Chinese Social Score comes to your nation?

Don't think for one minute that it won't. Generation Z has been raised to rate everything, from the products they buy, to the sellers they buy from, the restaurants they visit, their teachers, and even the doctors they visit. They rate their uber driver and the uber driver rates them. You have a large generation very used to the concept of rating.

The social media phenomenon has inculcated a narcissistic driven behavioural reinforcement system, by which people are nudged into group pleasing actions in return for high scores. Whether the motivation is purely rooted in vanity, or for monetary award corresponding to subscriber counts, it becomes clear that people are intimately vested in a gamification existence.

This combination of ratings and points is the underbelly for a "Social Score" system that is actually being realized in China today. Fail a test, litter on the street, say something 'politically incorrect', or perhaps staying out too late would result in demerits. Naturally, governments will issue rewards to nudge people into 'correct' behaviour. Those with low scores will be restricted from many services ranging from communications to travel; perhaps dissidents won't even have any freedom of movement! I'm sure you can imagine how such a scheme could also be tied into Universal Income.

(((They))) have primed the younger generation to accept this system, and you're kidding yourself if you think it will be met with but a handful of resistors. The question is then, how do we prevent this dystopian nightmare from emerging before it is too late?

Hey, China. You're doing it wrong.




>litter on the street, say something 'politically incorrect', or perhaps staying out too late would result in demerits

I'm trying to understand how it took a fucking dystopia to prevent vermins from littering.



As you said, we can't. We just have to brace for it and hope that with whatever that will happen after a widespread adoption of this social credit system that there's still a somewhat livable "free" world.

Comparison between Tor and i2p?

What are the differences between just booting up tor browser/entering the network and running i2p?

Are there any imageboards or any random interests websites on i2p or is it dead?

I boot up tor frequently to see how stuff is going and visit a few imageboards, been listening about i2p for a few years but never did any search.

18 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.


i2p = java shit = shit

Tor = compiled into machine code. = good



theres i2pd if you dont like java


I2p has a booru with a surprising amount of content. It's not very practical given the size of the network. And it isn't organized well (can only enter 2 tags too).

There is a Chinese imageboard and many Russian imageboards. No english boards that I can think of.

The network is a lot slower than Tor, but it's very good for torrenting. If you're looking for something specific there probably won't be a torrent for it unless it's popular, but if there's still a lot of content. And joining the network always helps.

If you're just looking at text or small thumbnails it should be fast enough.



Does i2p have good child pornography content? Tor network does (check it if you don't believe me)


tor = anonymous access to clearnet with hidden sites as an afterthought

i2p = hidden sites(eepsites) with anonymous access to clearnet as an afterthought

I'm going to install Calculate in a VM and if the experience is good I might start shilling it to windowstards.

I won't install it myself because I already run gentoo.


well thats fine...



I don't get it



Calculate linux appears to be the distro that comes the closest to "linux for retards" after *buntu. You can update from the GUI but you're going to install packages from the commandline. They taunt binary package distribution, but the official documentation tells you to install with emerge, and doesn't tell you how to install custom packages the binary way. The distro also tells you you can change your make.conf, but apparently it then expects you to switch to emerge or overwrite your optimized packages with their binary ones whenever you update.

If it's just gentoo with binary packages, then it's useless, and Void is a better binary distro.

It's made by russians, the english translation of the custom utilities they use in the distro is bad.

As for the tools themselves, I'll look into them some other day. But they have some cool ideas, I want to see if the distro actually achieves its goal of letting you have one admin computer that controls a bunch of other computers that on paper would be used by workers in a company, however I don't see any tools that allow you to manage multiple computers at once in such a way.

If Lisp is so good, how come nobody has even made a text editor with it? No, Emacs doesn't count, it's not pure lisp. Neither does DrRacket, you need to install entire Racket language for it. Same applies to Edwin which requires installing Scheme to use it. Climacs neither, there are no binaries, it apparently doesn't even work and is basically just a joke. Zmacs is 1980's history, no binaries, no source, can't verify anything, so no.

Requirements in plain English are on picture there, and those requirements translate basically just to "make a usable open-source desktop application that can be distributed like any other desktop application", no miracles required.

>OpenBSD bugs

Ok, you found bugs in OpenBSD. But the design of OpenBSD assumes users running software with bugs.

The more important question is: can you actually exploit those bugs? The fact is that OpenBSD is the only operating system which by default shuts down the process or even the entire system if it finds a program misbehaving.

I heard that older floppies were very reliable, but in the 90s the market was flooded with low-cost, low-quality disks.




He's right that flashdrives are dirt fucking cheap right now. I do prefer how floppies were more conducive to 1 piece of media = 1 file. Kind of the difference between having individual file folders and just dumping all of your papers in one box. All your info is there in both cases, but sometimes it's nice to have it partitioned very clearly.



Reminds me of what happened with magnetic tape audio recordings. The later ones were worse because the manufacturers found out how to run the tapes slower and slower to fit more audio onto the same space, but as a result the audio information per second was reduced.

ZFS eats up RAM with deduplication enabled


File: 197e8615bb304b6⋯.jpg (78.9 KB, 404x500, 101:125, ASRock QC5000ITX.jpg)


I personally don't go below 8gb, since that's what it is fully tested against, and I've seen rare reports of people having issues going below 4gb (though these issues due to their OS not playing nice and could likely be resolved with some tuning). It's nice to know that it can go that low though.

To reiterate for those that don't know, the only time zfs NEEDS ram is when using deduplication.

Don't fucking use deduplication

It's off by default for a reason and if you aren't running an enterprise system you don't need it and it will only waste your resources and causes problems. Otherwise when running ZFS normally, it'll just make use of free ram for caching, but it doesn't NEED that ram. You can reduce how much ram it tries to cache with some tuning variables.

Likewise (as others have said) SSD L2ARC caches do NOT do what people think they do and only benefit specific use cases.

Hopeful the idea it needs ECC is also already thoroughly debunked. ECC is nice, but not needed any more than any other filesystem.

The only thing that's expensive about ZFS is stupidity and hard disks. And as it's happens, here's some 10TB $170 easystores: https://slickdeals.net/f/12838102-my-best-buy-members-10tb-wd-easystore-external-usb-3-0-hard-drive-32gb-usb-flash-drive-170-free-shipping?src=frontpage

My first ZFS/samba NAS was literally pic related for $50 and a bunch of spare parts/thrift store junk. The most expensive parts were the disks and a decent PSU. Which reminds me, you can cheap out on a lot, but don't cheap out on the PSU.

There's a lot of legacy hardware, embedded hardware, and old ThinkPads floating around. Throwing them all out because some Rustnigger insists they're "depreciated" is retarded.

>C/C++ is unsafe by default and can't be made safe.

There are other system programming languages than C and C++, retard. Ada can handle the shit you need unsafe blocks for in Rust without sacrificing all safety features.



>Throwing them all out because some Rustnigger insists they're "depreciated" is retarded.

That's not what I'm saying though. Learn to read, cnile.

If you want support for your deprecated shit do a cross compile. It's that easy. Only OpenBSD niggers are so retarded an unironically support x86.
