What are the chances that this entire thing is a subversive manuever for control over the kernel?

For those who don’t know, speck is a crypto built by the NSA.

Wasn't Heartbleed ages ago? i don't even know the details of the things you mentioned, but i have seen the clip of him saying that. Why would they ask if they didn't have to?

I have read that c v c++ and yelling at people for bad code, etc. But sometimes you just gotta look at your life and go 'fuck maybei shouldn't be so much of an asshole" and maybe he did that. It's plausible. If Linux ever becomes not FOSS I don't know what i'd do with myself, maybe just only use up to version 4.x whenever it's cut off... He's such a god like maintainer and PROBABLY the only reason Linux is so well kept. WIthout him I don't know what will happen.
>>
>>67695916
>Wasn't Heartbleed ages ago?
A couple years. But it came about from a commit from some dev linked to either the NSA or the CIA.

>Why would they ask [to backdoor] if they didn't have to?
They didn't ask. They ordered. They ordered everyone, that's the whole point of PRISM. They didn't know it couldn't be done secretly, so then they started abusing auditing vulnerabilities.

>If Linux ever becomes not FOSS I don't know what i'd do with myself
If it ever were to happen, which I used to think would be impossible, but now... anyway, if it ever were to happen, it would just get forked. That said, Linux (as distros) has already been heavily subverted. If you're using systemd, you already have a number of backdoors. Hell, if you're using the kernel vanilla, you already have a number of backdoors, but these are about to go up exponentially. I really hope Gentoo keeps on giving me satisfactory audits before merging, but in either case, the server landscape looks grim.
>>
>>67696028
I use Gentoo also, some autist from WoW 15 years ago showed me how to navigate bash and I was hooked. ran it exclusively throughout uni, learned the system really damn well, and no I don't use systemd, why would anyone when openrc is so much simpler. why don't people like /etc/init.d/scripts ? what's so hard about that?

Anyways... I don't know about this PRISM thing. Have been getting back into tech news after a little mini vacation I'll look it up, and thank you.
>>
>>67696107
>I don't use systemd, why would anyone when openrc is so much simpler
Because they use Redhat or Debian-based (which includes Ubuntu) distros, and both Redhat and Debian force you to use systemd. Redhat because they're the ones actually financing it (well, the NSA, but the checks are officially signed by Redhat), and Debian because Debian Women (of course) pushed for it.

But all the more security/reliability conscious distros stay away from it.

>Anyways... I don't know about this PRISM thing. Have been getting back into tech news after a little mini vacation I'll look it up, and thank you
What? You don't know about Snowden?
>>
>>67696163
I do know about him. when it happened i was a little younger and didn't follow it too closely, but i know who he is and what he did etc.

Do the 'hardened' versions of the ubuntu style distros use systemd still? I can't imagine why anyone would want anything bloated like that running their servers, the oinly two distros I feel like I'm actually using linux are Slackware and Gentoo. the rest feel just weird. but i learned on command line, all those gui apps that obfuscate what's really going on.. i can't deal with them. I don't trust them.

He knew that a New Yorker hit piece about muh wymynz was going to be published, so he stepped down:

>Torvalds’s decision to step aside came after The New Yorker asked him a series of questions about his conduct for a story on complaints about his abusive behavior discouraging women from working as Linux-kernel programmers. In a response to The New Yorker, Torvalds said, “I am very proud of the Linux code that I invented and the impact it has had on the world. I am not, however, always proud of my inability to communicate well with others—this is a lifelong struggle for me. To anyone whose feelings I have hurt, I am deeply sorry.”

Because THAT is what ‘acting professionally’ results in: people resort to all kinds of really nasty things because they are forced to act out their normal urges in unnatural ways.”

Have a question about Fedora 26 on an R61e

I installed the Middleton BIOS, T9500 2.6ghz and 8gb DDR2 800, SSD boot drive, reasonably decent specs for Fedora right? Nope, Fedora 26, even LXDE, takes FOREVER to boot, on a new install. 28 Workstation won't even boot, but will boot off the Live Disk.

What the hell? I have an Acer Atom dual core 1.6ghz netbook with 2gb RAM that blows the doors off this thing in load up time. My Dad's T60p with W10 loads faster with the older Merom C2D and almost 1/3rd of the memory.

I ran sudo dnf update to no avail. Changed batteries. This same laptop loaded 7 instantly and ran it like a raped ape. What am I doing wrong? Lenovo battery and power adapter too. Intel integrated graphics.

regarding the tranny? he has built up a large enough mob of zelots in the pass few years to create a sufficient amount noise to cause 'problems' for projects. since most tech people live in the same echo chamber/culture as these people, they know the consequences of being singled out for not being progressive enough among their peers. basically they have to listen to these people or chance being run out of the industry.. besides most of them probably hold the same snow flake opinions anyway.

I just HardwareUnboxed review.

Paying double the money for 10 more frames in the "Average FPS" category while having the same 1% minimums as the 1080Ti is a big yikes for me

also the 2080 vs 1080ti is exactly the same performance rofl but you are paying like 200 bucks more for the 2080

and Shadow of the Tomb Raider can't hit 60FPS average on the 2080Ti even (50FPS on 1% minimums) (AND THIS IS BEFORE THE RTX PATCH THAT WILL COME IN NOVEMBER AHAHAHAHAHA. IMAGINE HOW MUCH FPS U GET WITH NVIDIA RTX ENABLED IN THAT GAME, LIKE 20FPS ON 4K ROFL ROFLR OFLF)
