Software DevelopmentGeneralImplementation RequestVery HighCriticalARM (aarch and armv7h) portingDeferred
0%
Task Description

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 ARM A7/A53 promises to be a great architecture example for low-power computers, laptops and embedded systems.

NOTE: ARM porting is focused only for HyperbolaBSD .

/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.

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).

Description:
Historically, Swiftdove was a Thunderbird-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 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.

InstallationGeneralImplementation RequestHighCriticalTo 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.

ServicesHyperWiki/DokuWikiBug ReportMediumLowWiki search feature is broken, taskrunner has stopped t...In Progress
0%
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, https://www.dokuwiki.org/faq:searchindex. 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 https://wiki.hyperbola.info/doku.php?id=&do=index 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 https://wiki.hyperbola.info/doku.php?do=search&id=start&sf=1&q=en, 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 https://wiki.hyperbola.info/doku.php?do=search&id=start&sf=1&q=system

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, https://www.dokuwiki.org/taskrunner. So in the case something is broken on search like it is our case, check https://www.dokuwiki.org/search#some_background_on_the_searchindex for more information and https://www.dokuwiki.org/faq:searchindex 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), https://www.dokuwiki.org/cli#indexerphp. And secondly there is search_index plugin for a admin GUI instead, https://www.dokuwiki.org/plugin:searchindex
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, https://www.dokuwiki.org/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

Task Description

Hi guys, I have ever run into a Brother brand printer model DCPT500W[0], and I have seen that the source code for the drivers under GPLv3 license is available.

I also see that there is a file brother_dcpt500w_printer_en.ppd, which is important for cups, which is why it may be necessary to integrate it into the cups, as long as the drivers are Libre.

Few other distros like Debian, NetBSD, and OpenBSD have some own customized login screens, while right here, the actual distro didn’t. I suggest you replacing them for the following paths on the list to come up next package release, which I have three files attached below there.

0%
Task Description

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:

pkgname=postfix-policyd-spf-perl
pkgver=2.011
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc='Postfix SPF policy engine, written in Perl'
arch=(i686 x86_64)

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.
