lightwieght linux for old processor Anonymous 06/06/2021 (Sun) 04:55:17 No. 4355 [Reply]
Really glad to see this board taking off. I want a linux distro that I can rice for my x41 tablet thinkpad. It's a pentium m, 2 gigs of ram, 1024x768 screen. I've heard some suggestions >void linux >puppy linux >debian I'm a linux noob so I don't know what I'm doing, but I'd like to learn. as far as usage I want to shitpost and maybe doodle some. I've heard some say that my browser is more important than distro as far as snappiness goes. What browser would you suggest that still has 32 bit support.

>>4702 >>4703 How is refusing to use "lefty-made" open source software for all eternity going to rob you of your rights? You know exactly what they are doing with it (because it's open source) and therefore you can just stop using it or fork it if and when they start obstructing your rights. Also, if you think the political right doesn't obstruct anyone's rights, I'm sorry to say it but you are delusional. For most of history they have been forcing their religion and views on marriage down everyone's throats. It's only recently that the left has taken their place.

The 08chan and Zeronet Problem Anonymous 03/15/2021 (Mon) 19:36:10 No. 2951 [Reply]
An idea sort of came together toward the problems of zeronet moderation and a possible solution for another go at something similar. What about crypto wallets? I think using XMR or similarly private coin wallet address as your identifier instead of how you pretty much gave up your privacy to be tracked on 08chan as an initial identifier to track trash glowniggers and commies posting CP and other such trash to ruin it for everyone else. You'd still be tracked but only to the point of your wallet. I'm sure someone a bit more OpSec fresh than me could come up with an infographic to set that up securely even.

>>4068 you can just use this css and your in """"text"""" mode until you expand the thumbnails img { border: 10px solid #ddd; padding: 10px; width: 0px; } the only problem with zeronet is it was written by a complete moron, and in fucking python too, its like it was designed to be slow on purpose if it was written in c and implemented seed layering or optimization ie. get the closest fucking seed next to you and not some fucking randy in thailand or with the highest latency or layer them into a stream torrent style etc.., then maybe it would be more usable
>>4076 >the only problem with zeronet is it was written by a complete moron, and in fucking python too I remember someone tried to reimplement ZeroNet in Golang. I don't know how far he went on it. It shouldn't be that hard to make alternate clients in different languages though.

In the market for a new laptop. Privacy-wise, is there any benefit to going with AMD intead of Intel? I know Intel's (((Management Engine))) is cancer, but is AMD's version any better?
AMD is just straight up better than Intel in general as far as principles go AMD should be fine, and its not like you have any other options for CPUs besides them and Intel, so just go with them.
>>5751 AMD slaps their version of IME on the mobo and calls it the PSP, several desktop motherboards allow disabling it in the uefi menu. You'll have to look at individual laptops for this feature, but I know as far as desktops go, asus and my own asrock have it, but not all models do. AMD sucks china's cock when they banned certain vtuber guest speakers over Taiwan, Intel is literally NASA, but as far as performance goes, AMD is a solid pick regardless of if you can find one with a PSP disable toggle.
Both are cancer, but more work has been put into neutralizing IME using Coreboot. Look at the Pureism laptops that have Coreboot already installed and ME stripped out, else check the Coreboot site for whatever Thinkpad has support and go from there,

Arch User Repository Anonymous 10/05/2021 (Tue) 06:19:45 No. 5597 [Reply]
Is it just me or does the fact the AUR is shilled so hard kind of retarded? It seems like an insanely insecure method of distributing software. Any random fuck being able to upload shit. Sure some of the packages are managed by the official developers, most most are just binaries packaged by random dipshits. All it takes is one popular package to get orphaned and a malicious actor to take over and you suddenly can distribute malware to fucktons of people. It seems like such a bizarre thing that everyone has accepted and even actively pushes as a "noob" friendly method to get any and all software they want easily on Linux. Now with the Steam Dick around the corner the platform will be a much greater target for attacks. I suspect all these previously unexploited vectors to get much more sketchy in the coming years. Linux security has been entirely dependent on the competency of the individual user and that's a recipe for disaster in the hands of the average consumer. But I also find it very irresponsible that the discussion around Linux hasn't really highlighted how fucking insecure the AUR really is, but instead highlights the convenience of it.

Tor Discussion Anonymous 06/15/2020 (Mon) 04:52:53 No. 449 [Reply] [Last]
So, what's so bad about Tor? >it's a honeypot Not really, I have done extensive research into this and the only people caught on it were dumb fucks who made OpSec mistakes. Plus, the only people championing this point are schizos who use VPN services or set up their own VPN, or even just use their plain ISP-given IP address, all of which are way riskier than using Tor. If you're concerned about onion links being honeypots, then set up your own. It's one of the easiest things in the world to do. >it's slow Fair enough. >a lot of sites block it Yeah, and a lot of sites are fags anyways, a lot of sites are also using ReCatapha and require phone verification and use Cloudflare or AWS. Sites have been against privacy for a long time and are banning VPNs too. >it's operated by sjws&trannies Literally everything is now, including VPN services and ISPs, there is no escape unless you want to fully disconnect from the internet and live in a cabin in the woods, which considering people are still using this site, I don't see happening. Also, the directors are known privacy-advocates. >firefox Firefox is rapidly becoming a shit browser for privacy, yes, Chromium is worse, "Ungoogled" Chromium is still Chrome garbage, same with Brave, alternative Firefox builds are usually outdated, and Opera is blatantly spyware. Meanwhile, Tor usually strips out all the tracking that Firefox tries to push in new releases. >relays and nodes operated by governments Which is more of a reason to get more people using Tor so more people can set up nodes and relays aside from government interference. Not opening this to start an argument or a bash on how bad Tor is or just to simply praise Tor, I want a discussion, because most points about Tor being bad for privacy are easily debunked and usually only used by schizos and I want to ensure my personal privacy.

Flatpak and Friends Anonymous 06/10/2020 (Wed) 10:02:59 No. 413 [Reply]
What's your opinion on the concept of these newfangled package managers having sandboxing, enabling backwards compatibility and having a one-build-fits-all-distros mentality? Is it bloat, or the right way to go about solving such problems? Personally, I use Flatpak to handle games, so my system doesn't actually have any 32 bit libraries installed by my distro's package manager, anything 32 bit's managed entirely by Flatpak, separate from everything else. As well as isolating propietary software, since most games are, and Steam too. Since I don't use programs with Qt 5 much, I've decided to get rid of the ones I've installed natively and installed the ones I do need on Flatpak, that way I can get rid of Qt 5 as well.

Password Managers Anonymous 06/01/2021 (Tue) 17:14:56 No. 4278 [Reply]
Ok it's time to get a password manager. It has to be open source, free and without any cloud crap because I trust nobody. Which PM do you anons use? Which KeepAss is better? There's the OG, X and XC now. Is there any way to extend my PM to android manually without any company getting their hands on my database? Let's discuss.
16 posts and 4 images omitted.
>>5643 >this fag doesn't know about extensibility Using a separate program for all of these things gives you more control and lets you better specify what you want your password manager to have as a function. Don't want password generation? Don't extend functionality to something that could do that. <...and I don't care about browser integration or autocomplete or any of that other stuff Again, just don't extend pass to those applications, then. >>4278 Syncing your database with a home server that your devices' Keepass instances can access through the Internet should let you do this. I haven't done this myself, though, only through MEGA, and I don't know if that site is actually trustworthy. Better to learn how to setup your own server for this as you have full control.
I mentally encrypt my passwords from plain text to AES-256, then use invisible ink to write them down on a grain of rice. Then I take the rice and hide it under a loose floorboard in my bedroom. I did lose my passwords once to a hungry mouse, but other than that, I'm pretty happy with this arrangement.

Operation Download And Conquer Anonymous 10/02/2021 (Sat) 13:51:54 No. 5546 [Reply]
Given how majority of the internet's audio and video services are provided by Google, thanks to Youtube, the purpose of this operation is to loosen the death-grip that has taken hold. This process will only require that you have a steady internet connection and (Advisably) 100 GB of free space. Here is the process: Step 1 Download the latest versions of FFMpeg and Youtube-DL, and put all the programs into the same folder: http://ffmpeg.org/ https://ytdl-org.github.io/youtube-dl/index.html Step 2 Create an account to any video sites that you wish to distribute videos on. Here are some of the more well-known alternatives, as well as some recommended sites: AfreecaTV: https://www.afreecatv.com/ Bitchute: https://www.bitchute.com/ BitTube: https://bittube.tv/ D.tube: https://d.tube/ Dailymotion: https://www.dailymotion.com/ LBRY: https://lbry.com/ NicoNico: https://www.nicovideo.jp/ Rumble: https://rumble.com/

Monero As the Internet's Currency Anonymous 04/18/2021 (Sun) 01:27:33 No. 3581 [Reply]
There's many cryptocurrencies out there. But out of the many cryptocoins out there only one stands out, Monero. It's safe, secure, private, and anonymous and there has yet to be a government agency that can crack its code. It's also not handled by banks, payment processors, and credit card companies that may blacklist you for bullshit reasons. The promising technology of atomic swapping will also render crypto exchanges to be not needed as this will counter government regulations of asset exchanges. Also this cryptocurrency is the easier to mine compared to Bitcoin. So do you think Monero will see more widespread use in the future? Give your thoughts.
