HyperTask software https://issues.hyperbola.info/ 2019-01-10T23:40:53Z FS#1338: RISC-V (riscv64) porting + multilib support 2019-01-10T23:37:52Z 2019-01-10T23:37:52Z

The unfortunate reality is that x86 computers come encumbered with built-in low-level backdoors like the Intel Management Engine , as well as nonfree boot firmware. This means that users can’t gain full control over their computers, even if they install a free operating system such as Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre .

Hyperbola is working hard to fix these issues and getting closer every day, but for the time being, this is why many current Respects Your Freedom (RYF) offerings are refurbished older devices.

For the future of free computing, we need support architectures that do not come with such malware pre-installed, and RISC-V promises to be a great architecture example for low-power computers, laptops and embedded systems, also as ARM architecture replacement.

Devices like this are the future of computing that Respects Your Freedom and for that reason it’s a high priority for Hyperbola port all packages for the RISC-V architecture (riscv64) with multilib support.

FS#1337: ARMv7 (armv7h) porting 2019-01-10T23:40:53Z 2019-01-09T04:09:54Z

I know you have misgivings about that arm laptop, I mentioned, and arm as a whole, but people will be buying it no doubt.

I think you won’t stop that from happening whether you support it or not. the same is said with other arm laptops such as the MNT Reform Laptop and even the chromebook c201 asus which is questionable but can be run with mostly free software, except for 3D and wifi. (use wifi adapter)

Those are just a few arm laptops that need your support. You may know of others, but yeah, I want you to support as many of the ones that can run mostly on free software, as possible.

But yeah, we don’t know when two of those are coming out, so I understand completely if you want to wait till a more opportune time. But yeah, when you find a chance in the future to support them, please do so.

This means that users can’t gain full control over their computers, even if they install a free operating system such as Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre .

For the future of free computing, we need support architectures that do not come with such malware pre-installed, and the Power9-based Talos II promises to be a great architecture example for workstations and servers environments where Hyperbola is focused since is a fully free long-term support distribution.

Devices like this are the future of computing that Respects Your Freedom and for that reason it’s a high priority for Hyperbola port all packages for the POWER architecture (power64le).

FS#1313: Search Engine Addon Request: Startpage 2018-12-25T02:46:19Z 2018-12-25T02:46:19Z

Icecat currently has the FSF approved addon for Startpage.com.
It would be helpful to have it ported to iceweasel-uxp.

FS#1139: Ublock origin for Icedove-UXP 2018-12-04T01:21:47Z 2018-08-16T03:02:24Z

I would like to have this package also added to icedove-uxp.
It would be lovely, given that the latest legacy package of ublock origin supports legacy/thunderbird without webext of course. :)
