InstallationGeneralImplementation RequestVery LowLowTo make installation instructions and get use of live I...Unconfirmed
0%
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 hyperbola.info 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.

Task Description

I use Nextcloud for syncing, although, I would normally not ask for this, due to Nextcloud’s appimage being available, but for some reason the latest version doesn’t work on hyperbola. So... yeah.

Usually Nextcloud’s appimage works regardless of what packages you have, so I guess in essence... add Nextcloud-client package to this system is my request.

PackagesAnyUpdate RequestMediumHighMake Knock patch for Linux-libre 4.14 LTSUnconfirmed
0%
Task Description

The Knock patches for linux-libre maintained by you at https://git.hyperbola.info:50100/kernels/knock.git/ have support up to linux-libre 4.13 only (and I think it didn’t work for it when I tried it, compilation failed) but from all of those supported versions, the newest maintained generation by the upstream is 4.9.x

However, since newer kernel generations might require reprogramming the patch, I want to request it only for the latest LTS generation which is 4.14. As you know, LTS software are supported for a long time, so it’s worth to make it for linux-libre 4.14.x

This might not be really important for Hyperbola in the short term, but you are the maintainers of the TCP Stealth implementation for Linux-libre and I and maybe other people would like to use it in their projects for newer versions.

Plus, it would be great since while 4.9 kernels can use the GRSec+Knock combination like linux-libre-lts-unofficial-grsec-knock, with support for 4.14 anyone would be able to use a combination of newer patches such as Linux-hardened+Knock (Linux-hardened supports 4.14 and 4.15 as of now) which is what I’d like to do.
