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.

PackagesStableBug ReportVery LowHigh[vlc] DVB : cache_block stream error: cannot pre fill b...Unconfirmed
Task Description

Current VLC version (3.0.4-3.hyperbola1.backports1) fails to play DVB stream using a RTL2832 usb dongle.

I start the playlist like this :

vlc channels.conf

but it returns the following error :

cache_block stream error: cannot pre fill buffer

Also, it asks the user to be in “video” group to access DVB device, this was not needed before with Hyperbola 0.2.9. User being in “wheel” was enough.
Anyway, even after adding my user to video group, it still fails with “cache_block stream error: cannot pre fill buffer”

This is not an issue with my DVB adapter or driver. rtl2832 is correctly loaded. And I can play the channels.conf playlist just fine with “mpv” or “mplayer”.
Also, the channels.conf used works just fine with a more recent version of VLC on an other system (Manjaro) so something is broken with the current VLC used.

Maybe a package bump would fix the issue.

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

PackagesAnyImplementation RequestVery LowMedium[SPF][postfix] implement pypolicyd-spf and postfix-poli...Unconfirmed
Task Description

Hyperbola has the following SPF implementations:
* libspf2
* perl-mail-spf
* perl-mail-spf-query

However, none of them work out of the box with postfix. There’s postfix-policyd-spf-perl, which uses one the current perl implementations (perl-mail-spf), takes no time to build and all the dependencies are already satisfied with Hyperbola’s packages

Here I made a PKGBUILD that’s compliant with the packaging standards:

pkgdesc='Postfix SPF policy engine, written in Perl'
arch=(i686 x86_64)
depends=(perl-mail-spf perl-netaddr-ip perl-sys-hostname-long)
validpgpkeys=(E7729BFFBE85400FEEEE23B178D7DEFB9AD59AF1) # Scott Kitterman

package() {
  cd "${pkgname}-${pkgver}"

  install -Dm755 "${pkgname}" "${pkgdir}/usr/libexec/postfix/${pkgname}"
  install -Dm644 CHANGES INSTALL README -t "${pkgdir}/usr/share/doc/${pkgname}"
  install -Dm644 LICENSE "${pkgdir}/usr/share/licenses/${pkgname}/LICENSE"

in the other hand, to give users the possibility of having more options, we could add pypolicyd-spf (AUR), which depends in pyspf (AUR) and other packages that Hyperbola has. In fact, ArchWiki talks about this implementation, but this might not be relevant.

PackagesTestingBug ReportHighCriticalRunit errors,Unconfirmed
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.

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).

Software DevelopmentIceweasel-UXPImplementation RequestDeferLowSwiftweasel-UXP theme for Iceweasel-UXPUnconfirmed
Task Description

Historically, Swiftweasel was a Firefox-based application built on XUL platform around 2007 and abandoned in 2010. It was optimized for several architectures using the following methods such as the Profile-Guided Optimization (PGO) and binary code optimization for computers with limited resources.

Since there are users encouraging us develop a Palemoon-based application , and Swiftweasel contains non-trademarked graphics and logos, we could port Swiftweasel to UXP platform as theme for Iceweasel-UXP.

Since FossaMail may potentially be revived on UXP in the future [0] and Swiftdove contains non-trademarked graphics and logos, we could port Swiftdove to UXP platform as theme for Icedove-UXP.
