InstallationGeneralImplementation RequestHighCriticalTo make installation instructions and get use of live I...Unconfirmed
Task Description

I have installed multiple times Hyperbola, 4 times on 4 different notebooks.

What I have noticed is that the live ISO is quite huge in relation to the task that should be done. Namely. the live ISO shall at least contain some first packages, so that they do not need to be downloaded online.

Best would be if the live ISO can be copied straight and that system can run from ISO/DVD without having Internet. At least one simple graphical environment shall be included.

Further, I have noticed that there is only network instructions as HTML file.

I would rather call it installation-instructions.html to make it clear for people what it is. Or simply: INSTALL.html so that people understand what it is.

It says just network.html if I remember well.

Then there is absolutely no point or link or reference to the installation instructions.

Each time I got a network I had to go to either duckduckgo search engine or to website and then I tried with lynx to find installation instructions.

It is not straight, not quite clearly in open, it is in Wiki, but that is quite hard to find.

We have to put ourselves in the shoes of those in need of free software. Millions of people need free software.

Many of us live in a developed western countries.

Yet millions of people in need of this software live in South America, Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe.

There are millions of students that could advance their study, and that could progress faster with free software.

In those countries Internet is often non-existent, universities may be located in poor network areas, Internet is being fetched by using mobile phones.

So if there is a live distribution, such shall at least contain basic software, which really can fit onto any DVD, and that as such can be copied on the computer without using Internet. Upgrades could be fetched by using Internet.

And there shall be clear reference, link or file about installation. There shall be no need to go to Internet to install the software.

PackagesTestingBug ReportHighCriticalRunit errors,In Progress
Task Description

/sbin/openrc-run: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

I get this error whenever I try to start dhcpcd with sv /etc/runit/

And for sndiod I get this doing the same guide,

warning: sndiod: unable to open supervise/ok: file does not exist

Although rather ironically, If I type sndiod or dhcpcd into root, it works just fine.

Maybe its an FHS issue or possibly, I am screwing up? I am not sure. Feedback is welcome.

This is what I did:

=⇒ Add a service:

ln -s /etc/sv/<service> /var/service
==> Start/stop/restart a service:
sv <start/stop/restart> <service>

more or less, I used this guide.

PackagesAnyBug ReportLowMedium[cryptsetup] when dmcrypt start, the "/" filesystem, m...Assigned
Task Description

When dmcrypt service start, the “/” filesystem is remounted, mtab is updated and bootmisc is recording the login users, by waiting time scheduling:

* root: waiting for dmcrypt (50 seconds)
* root: timed out waiting for dmcrypt
* Remounting root filesystem read/write ...
* Remounting filesystems ...
* mtab: waiting for dmcrypt (50 seconds)
* mtab: timed out waiting for dmcrypt
* Updating /etc/mtab ...
* Creating mtab symbolic link
* bootmisc: waiting to dmcrypt (50 seconds)
* bootmisc: timed out waiting for dmcrypt
* Creating user login records ...

These features on dmcrypt service are useless and these lines print above filesystem passphrase order (the printed line), those ones break printed console and print the pressed keyboard digit when I’m setting up password.
Sometimes this breaks services startup, and I need press “enter” consecutively to allow run the services.

PackagesStableBug ReportVery LowVery Low[fail2ban] update dovecot failregex to support verbose ...Unconfirmed
Task Description

The /etc/fail2ban/filter.d/dovecot.conf file has a failregex with the following:

^%(__prefix_line)s(?:auth|auth-worker\(\d+\)): (?:pam|passwd-file)\(\S+,<HOST>\): unknown user\s*$

and works with things like:

Month day time hostname dovecot: auth: passwd-file(,IP): unknown user

but with verbosity enabled in Dovecot, this output looks like this:

Month day time hostname dovecot: auth: passwd-file(,IP): unknown user (given password: password)

and in this case it doesn’t work, but it does if we fix the failregex if we replace it with:

^%(__prefix_line)s(?:auth|auth-worker\(\d+\)): (?:pam|passwd-file)\(\S+,<HOST>\): unknown user( \(given password: \S*\))?\s*$

with this new expression, it works with and without verbosity

And regarding postfix, to make it work correctly I “backported” some pieces from newest failregex:


^%(__prefix_line)sNOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from \S+\[<HOST>\]: [45]54 [45]\.7\.1 Service unavailable; Client host \[\S+\] blocked using .* from=<\S*> to=<\S+> proto=ESMTP helo=<\S*>$

/etc/fail2ban/postfix.conf: (second failregex)

^%(__prefix_line)sNOQUEUE: reject: RCPT from \S+\[<HOST>\]: 45[04] 4\.7\.1 Client host rejected: cannot find your (reverse )?hostname, (\[\S*\]); from=<\S*> to=<\S+> proto=ESMTP helo=<\S*>$

I can create a patch if you want. Note that I haven’t tested all filters, some others may also need some rework

ServicesMail Service IssueFeature RequestVery LowLowSupport RFC 3461: Delivery Status Notifications (DSNs)Researching
Task Description

The RFC 3461 would allow Hyperbola email accounts to request the destination email providers to point out if an email was successfully delivered.

It might not cover all transport failures, but at least has a chance to know in advance whether the message was delivered, discarding the events that happen afterwards (be it to the main inbox or subject to filtering rules such as moving to other folder, marking as spam or deleted after receipt).

ServicesHyperWiki/DokuWikiBug ReportMediumLowWiki search feature is broken, taskrunner has stopped t...In Progress
Task Description

The search feature on our wiki seems to be broken,

Only very early wiki page articles seem to have been tracked. Everything created in the last few years was not tracked, so pages cannot be found on index by search feature, Nontheless we should fix this given currently is already quite hard to find articles, fortunately our wiki is not yet big enough for search to be a necessity.

Has you can see in the are many pages(articles/files) and namespaces(directories) inside en: namespace but if you search for articles on search you will realize most will not show up, another example is when you search “system” this is a word used many times in our wiki, but here you notice again not much references

This issue is related to new pages not being tracked by taskrunner on the search index of our wiki, given it doesnt seem to automatically re-create said index like it normally should, So in the case something is broken on search like it is our case, check for more information and could also be relevant.

We have 2 option to fix it: 1. there is a command line tool included in DokuWiki in case you prefer that (and in case you have shell access to the server), And secondly there is search_index plugin for a admin GUI instead,
This won’t fix the search index permanently, the search index needs to be updated whenever a page is changed, ours seams broken, this is normally triggered by this task runner, in a form of a image file that should also be in our custom template (I assume this is the root cause on our problem not being in template,
“The indexing process is triggered by a small image embedded in the template which will call the indexing script. If you use a third party template, the template developer might have forgotten to add this “webbug” in the template. You should check your main.php template for the existence of the tpl_indexerWebBug() function.” or maybe (another plugin might be the root cause for this breakage).

Related but irrelevant: So we first need to fix our search index has discribed abouve before trying to use the move plugin again.

TODO > “Add search_index_plugin so wiki admins can also fix this without shell acess to server but through GUI

Software Developmentchroot-nspawnBug ReportMediumMedium[chroot-nspawn] Create mount points if mountpoint exit ...Unconfirmed
Task Description

The actual behavior is to create mount points if mountpoint exits with exit status 1, however it may also exit with code 32 and thus creating a real mess:

$ sudo chroot-nspawn

mount: /sys/fs/cgroup/memory: mount point does not exist.
mount: /sys/fs/cgroup/pids: mount point does not exist.

So I created a patch to fix this.

P.S.: although I can git clone the repo with ssh access, whenever I do a push I get:

error: remote unpack failed: unable to create temporary object directory
To ssh://
 ! [remote rejected] master -> master (unpacker error)
error: failed to push some refs to 'ssh://'

Do I have the permission to write in this repo? If not, I’d like it, as I’m planning to improve this great script
