Why are you still using Skype and not Jitsi, /g/?

>free as in freedom (GNU GPL license)
>free as in beer
>XMPP protocol
>end-to-end encryption
>available on linux, mac and windows
>has support for Google, Facebook, AIM, and others chat protocols

I was looking for a Skype alternative and found this. Why is no one on /g/ talking about it?

This is awesome, thanks. Just what I needed for my small business
what about the ping/loop noise

Yup, Riot.im (Matrix.org) is fucking awesome.

Basically next gen XMPP while having the ability to cross chat with just about any other system.
Because Jitsi is broken AF. I use Tox now.

>This is an ancient bug that was actually attempted to be fixed once (badly) by me eleven years ago in commit 4ceb5db9757a (“Fix get_user_pages() race for write access”) but that was then undone due to problems on s390 by commit f33ea7f404e5 (“fix get_user_pages bug”).

>In the meantime, the s390 situation has long been fixed, and we can now fix it by checking the pte_dirty() bit properly (and do it better). The s390 dirty bit was implemented in abf09bed3cce (“s390/mm: implement software dirty bits”) which made it into v3.9. Earlier kernels will have to look at the page state itself.

Yes but it would be a nightmare to set up.
Yes, but just document all the commands you do, and do it one at a time.
You'll most likely fail, but if you documented properly you can just copy paste the commands for successfull things you installed allowing you to just wipe and reinstall quite quickly.
You'll have to learn alot though
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --sport 8080 --dport 80 -m conntrack --ctstate NEW,ESTABLISHED -j ACCEPT

Does this mean allow inbound tcp to port 80 from port 8080, or does this mean allow inbound tcp to port 80 and from port 8080?

Considering the multiport extension doesn't work with both destination and source port specified, I'm assuming it's the former. Right?

I want to sync files on devices running android, windows and debian. The main server will run on my home server on debian. I would prefer an open source program, even if it's not perfect.

Is syncthing good?

decryption keys to 400gb of leaked secret documents
that doesn't matter.
It can be a bad audio because of low quality skype calls or something or get good voice actors to make something that sounds very similar.
And anyone who would make a youtube video, saying that it is a fake would be called a nutty conspiracy theorist and dismissed.
That sounds almost impossible to shut down.

For a total noob like me, what IDE do you recommend? Am I falling for a meme using Visual Studio?
7 replies omitted. Click here to view.

If you're willing to learn, emacs is a great tool.

Depends on the language. I wish I just started out using spacemacs, but there is a learning curve


I'd say yes, but on the other hand I don't want you to give up because you lack the relative safety of an IDE. If you opt for an IDE, use an IDE with modal editing (vim style), then you will learn skills that are transferable, so that's something you cant really go wrong with.

I like that Windows now also has those workspaces.
Yeah. They finally had one really good feature to it.

Shame rest of it is downright garbage
The dust settled and I'm still sweeping up after its presence. It's a lot of up keep for my back and it had been hurting now because of all the little critters inserting their fucking legs at my skin like they want to insert poison into my sleeping body.

can play games on it
can browse web on it
can listen to music on it
can masturbate furiously to porn on it
can procastinate on it

for me, it's ok, no regrets
Could be better but it does th job. I don't need anything more.

>implying KDE looks bad
9 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
There's no good DE at the moment. KDE crashes constantly, Xfce and LXDE act and feel like something from 1998, GNOME has gone full retard and removed all options for configuration, and Unity, while novel, isn't exactly a joy to use.

Oh the pain.
>KDE crashes constantly
Not had a single crash in the ~5 weeks this box has been up
That's interesting, lucky you! KDE is the one I like the best, but despite trying several distros and versions I've not managed to have anything near a stable experience for several years. :/
Maybe you should get a real distro, like Arch.
KDE is the best one ATM, hands down

I'm saying I don't really use Facebook.
However, having done so it appears the Pi-hole lets Facebook ads through. A cursory inspection of the ads suggests that they emanate from i.facebook.com rather than an external domain, so blocking them on a hosts basis would probably fuck up Facebook.

Is this a new meme?
It's not as bad as it sounds, Anon. No pun intended.
Yup, I'm using FAT32 and put it on a USB with UNetbootin. Thanks.
Read the manual. Unetbootin fucks with the installer. On windows use win32diskimager and on gnu systems use either dd or cp.
Copied b43 (from /lib/firmware) to /firmware on installation USB. Didn't work. Guess I'll try right on the root of the drive next.

I'm installing to dual boot on an early 2008 MBP. I found that the first time I tried making the USB with Rufus my laptop didn't see it, but it did with UNetbootin. I can't really find reference to what you're talking about (probably because I'm really fucking new), so could you point me towards it?

Does anyone here work in cyber security? How does one get into this field?
Step 1: be l33t hacker
Step 2: assign yourself onto company payroll

what reader do you recommend?

I bought a cheap as class 10 micro sd off aliexpress, surprisingly it's pretty fast in my phone, but using a shitbox reader in a USB 3.0 slot it cuts down to flash drive speed, or less.

If I have to transfer 100GB+ I use my hotswap bay, unless the drive is ancient it's usually quicker to pull the external HDD to bits and plug it in
You could try ADATA.
