I'm fucking sick and tired of it, so I'm gonna ask some questions.

What programs can I use to accessibly monitor my internet traffic?

What is something I can read about to get a handle on how routing works, and how to understand the terminology used?

How the fuck can I, someone who doesn't know how to handle anything at the data-level, understand wireshark?

Is wireshark necessary? If so, how did you begin to understand it?

How do I avoid false positives and jumping at the wind?

What other programs can I use to protect myself from potential botnets?

I genuinely want to know, I'm tired of being led by the blind, I want to see things for myself!

Finally, I'm pretty sure that astroturfers are 25% of /tech/'s problem, and the remaining 75% comes from crabs-in-a-bucket faggots who'd rather "win" and be "right" in their minds than actually ATTEMPT to look for the truth.



>What programs can I use to accessibly monitor my internet traffic?

wireshark (among others)

>How the fuck can I, someone who doesn't know how to handle anything at the data-level, understand wireshark?

practice, tutorials, books

>Is wireshark necessary? If so, how did you begin to understand it?

perhaps not. get glasswire (assuming winblows). its also a firewall. NOTE: this only monitors what's going in and out of your specific PC iirc, not the whole network

>How do I avoid false positives and jumping at the wind?

experience. are you already using umatrix? if not, learn it. have you already figured out how to properly configure a firewall? if not, learn it. knowing these will help when you start attempting to identify particular packets

>What other programs can I use to protect myself from potential botnets?

all you really need is an antivirus and a properly configured firewall, they say. you should also harden your OS and your browser

but, most of all, what you really need to do is INSTALL GENTOO:^)


>What programs can I use to accessibly monitor my internet traffic?

TinyWall if Windows.

The Rust team is happy to announce a new version of Rust, 1.24.0. Rust is a systems programming language focused on safety, speed, and concurrency.

This release contains two very exciting new features: rustfmt and incremental compilation!

For years now, we’ve wanted a tool that automatically can reformat your Rust code to some sort of “standard style.” With this release, we’re happy to announce that a preview of rustfmt can be used with 1.24 stable.

Back in September of 2016 (!!!), we blogged about Incremental Compilation. While that post goes into the details, the idea is basically this: when you’re working on a project, you often compile it, then change something small, then compile again. Historically, the compiler has compiled your entire project, no matter how little you’ve changed the code. The idea with incremental compilation is that you only need to compile the code you’ve actually changed, which means that that second build is faster.

As of Rust 1.24, this is now turned on by default. This means that your builds should get faster! Don’t forget about cargo check when trying to get the lowest possible build times.

This is still not the end story for compiler performance generally, nor incremental compilation specifically. We have a lot more work planned in the future. For example, another change related to performance hit stable this release: codegen-units is now set to 16 by default. One small note about this change: it makes builds faster, but makes the final binary a bit slower. For maximum speed, setting codegen-units to 1 in your Cargo.toml is needed to eke out every last drop of performance.

But regardless of the language you have to "hunt" for packages. No languages std has everything.

>I remember spending hours to find a package giving a specific functionality because there were 10 others that were broken and I had to try each before finding out their shortcomings.

Sounds like every popular language tbh.

With a good enough stdlib, you can simply reimplement stuff if you really want to.

So I'm sure some of you are aware by now, but if not, RedHat is flat out dropping all support for BTRFS in the future.


A shame, as BTRFS has just recently made major progress towards eradicating its only real dealbreaker, broken RAID5/6 support.

>raid56 recovery: don't use cached stripes, that could be potentially changed and a later RMW or recovery would lead to corruptions or failures

>let raid56 try harder to rebuild damaged data, reading from all stripes if necessary

>fix scrub to repair raid56 in a similar way as in the case above

It's also still got the backing of SUSE, Facebook, Oracle, and Fujitsu.

However, RedHat has decided to go for its own solution, Stratis. You can read about it in depth here


but here are their plans from their requirements list

Make features easier to use in combination with each other: thin provisioning, snapshots, integrity, redundancy, multipath, encryption, hardware reconfiguration, monitoring, and a caching tier
2. Simple and comprehensive command-line interface
(a) Simple
i. Single way to do things
ii. Do not expose internal implementation details. Gives Stratis more implementation freedom, and of little value since internals are too complex to make manual user repairs practical
iii. User typically will not use on a daily basis
A. Consistent commands that a user can guess at, and probably be right
B. Require explicitness from the user for potentially data-losing operations, such as giving a “–force” option.
(b) Comprehensive
i. User must master only one tool
ii. Helps user learn:

Anyone think this might have been done as a means of creating more competition between RHEL and SLES?

It’ll be a war of the ZFS clones! Stratis vs. BTRFS! Let the autism begin!

or not.

More like Stratis vs ZFS. BTRFS is already dead.



>in the future

I thought it was just because they didn't have enough people with experience with btrfs.



still default on SUSE, still backed by Facebook, Oracle, and Fujitsu.



well they're abandoning btrfs entirely according to that paper.

>Of the many improvements to be found in the in-development Linux 4.17 kernel -- nicely summarized in our Linux 4.17 feature overview -- one of the features I've been anxious the most to begin benchmarking has been the reported power management improvements. Here are my initial power/performance tests of Linux 4.17 that for some systems is seeing a measurable drop in power usage, even in some cases under load while without sacrificing the performance.

>The most promising power management change in Linux 4.17 is a rework of the kernel's idle loop that may lead to some systems seeing their power drop by up to 10%+.


Also, for the first time there were more lines of code removed than added. That's because some architectures got deprecated.

They are not mutually exclusive. You will install, configure and never have to worry about TLP anymore, its passive. PowerTop is more for diagnosis.



>Drivers aren't really important in power outside of the GPU maybe.


>CPU doesn't need em

Not "drivers" per se but most CPUs use different techniques for power saving, and Intel's not very consistent with sticking to its own plan anyway. The kernel needs work for every new generation of CPU whatever the architecture.

>and most WiFi cards use common drivers

Many of which have crappy power management, which you'd know if you're a Linux user. It's practically a meme at this point that you need to be extra careful when selecting wireless cards, especially if you want good power management.

>not that the drivers do much. Hard to write a power-inefficient driver.

Look at the sorry state of this thread. Slid by some niggers.

Point is DRM hurts performance and gaymers should get all huffy about it. Of course, deciding to forgo DRM-laden software is not an option because muh gaymes n shit so let the angry forum posts commence!

If this Jap was really mad he'd release his gaymes DRM-free on GNU/Linux and open source at the bare minimum the previous versions. Instead he will shrug his shoulders after complaining a bit, then go back to cranking out proprietary Windows software and allow his publisher to infect it with a DRM virus and then inflict this indignity on his brain-dead fans.

How hard is it to get a remote programming job? Am I going to have to do web development if I want this? I just want a job that will let me travel (on my own, not as a job requirement).

I already had a hard enough time and gave up on trying to get a regular programming job after graduating with a 2 year degree, but then again I live in the middle of fucking nowhere so there's like 10 jobs available and all are senior positions.



Also is freelancing really even viable? I've looked into freelancing before and it honestly just always looked like it's not worth bothering with.



It's not easy, even if you already have a programming job. It obviously depends on the company but I think most people who program remotely usually start out on site. Or nepotism.



How common would it be for employers to let you work from home for like a few weeks at a time in an otherwise office job?

It seems quite clear that GNU/Linux is changing into something radically different from how it's been for the past decade or so. Truly radical changes are coming.


I'm sure a lot of you are GNU/Linux users. How do you show information about your network interfaces? How do you print your routing table? How do you view the arp cache?

Your answers are probably ifconfig, route, and arp. However, these commands we've always known are being depreciated in favor of ones from the iproute2 suite, so in the future you will be typing ip addr, ip route, and ip neigh for those respective functions.



For decades, UNIX and Linux systems have used the X windows system. This is going to, in time, be replaced by Wayland. It's currently too early for a full switchover, but with both the GNOME and KDE projects, plus Debian and Fedora supporting it, it looks like it'll happen sooner than we thought. It's a huge change, and with it completely eliminating screen tearing and having much better security, I think it will be a positive one.


Speaking of security, I'm sure you're all familiar with iptables. Well say goodbye to that, because it's being replaced by nftables. This aims to be better by being more minimal, or rather just putting a lot of the code in userland rather than kernelspace. Also better syntax.


>Application distribution

For the longest time, GNU/Linux users got their software from distro repositories. Despite many users claiming this is the best way to do things, it has had some criticisms. Therefore, there have been a few projects hoping to solve the issues and make the process of getting software more friendly to users of mainstream OSes.

The suffix "u" makes the compiler read the integer as an unsigned integer. Because it is almost guaranteed that the computer uses two-complement to represent integers, signed -1 is equivalent to the maximum permitted unsigned integer, i.e. 1111 1111 1111 1111...

So, he's creating an array of UINT_MAX which contains the number 1 everywhere.

Uhm that's not the screencap I wanted to post.




Now, that's not the real trick he's doing. By creating an array called main, he tricks the linker into thinking the contained data is in fact the main() function. I saw this hack implemented by simply declaring a const char array that contained the bytes of a classic "hello, world!" program. Because they were declared as const, they were also executable (since memory cells are either writable or executable in modern computers). That way, it was effectively possible to write a C program without ever declaring a main() function.

Why it would work without declaring the type of the array, or the array as constant I do not know.
