PackagesStableBug ReportLowMediumGarbled display with xfce4-terminal (terminfo)Unconfirmed
Task Description

A very nasty bug I wasn’t able to find an answer to.
I compiled stuff (buildroot) using menuconfig, the menu display was fine in xfce4-terminal (See screenshot #1)
I restarted the config a few days later with the same command :

$ make menuconfig

and this time the display was messed up (See screenshot #2)

After investigation, I noticed a directory (filled with stuff) have been created in my home folder :


I don’t know why. But anyway, if I delete it, then the display is ok again.
I noticed that if I use good old xterm terminal, then the display is fine even if the .terminfo directory is present. (it uses “xterm” instead of xterm-256color)

But, with xfce4-terminal (and others, I tried with gnome-terminal, sakura..), the display is messed up if the .terminfo directory is present in my home folder.

I also noticed that if I run the command in a screen session, the issue is not present.

(I open xfce4-terminal)

$ screen
$ printenv TERM
$ make menuconfig (or htop, or other program using ncurses)

= display ok

but with default :

(I open xfce4-terminal)

$ printenv TERM
make menuconfig (or htop, or other program using ncurses)

= display messed up if .terminfo directory is present

So I have no idea why this .terminfo directory is generated. What could trigger its generation ? Is that an issue with ncurses or something else ?

Thanks for your help

PackagesStableBug ReportMediumMedium[linux-libre-lts] [i915] Display freeze : hpd interrupt...Deferred
Task Description


I recently acquired a T400 Thinkpad with 1440×900 panel.
On this T400, I installed Hyperbola, just like on my x200 Thinkpad with 1280×800 panel.

Both Thinkpad are running the same Hyperbola installation :

Full disk encryption (with Libreboot) so both Thinkpad are using early KMS (MODULES=”i915” in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf)
Same kernel : linux-libre-lts (4.9.99 at the moment I’m writing this message)
video driver : modesetting
DE : xfce4 with xfwm4

On the Thinkpad x200, everything works great, no issue to report.

On the T400 though, the linux-libre-lts kernel, I’m getting random display freezes, when it happens, this message appears in dmesg :

hpd interrupt storm detected on connector hdmi-a-1

And the display (and sound) freezes for 10 seconds (sometimes more !)

As Hyperbola proposes linux-libre-lts kernel only, I installed latest linux-libre-lts (4.14.40) and linux-libre (4.16.8) from Parabola GNU/Linux repo.

Results :

With 4.14.40 : Same issue as with 4.9.99 kernel from Hyperbola repo.
With 4.16.8 : Issue is not present ! No more freeze !

I’m not sure how to proceed though. Would you be kind enough helping me to find which commit in i915 driver improved the situation ? If we find it, maybe it could be added as a patch to 4.9.x kernel series.
Or maybe it is something else.. I don’t have much experience, I can provide logs if needed.

Thanks for your help

PackagesStableBug ReportMediumHighopensmtpd: permission problemsIn Progress
Task Description


cat msg | /usr/sbin/sendmail – sendmail: No such file or directorycannot create temporary file /var/spool/smtpd/offline/1572544775.XXXXIqNsFX

Additional info:
* package version: 6.4.2p1-1.hyperbola2.backports1

It is same problem as here:

I could solve it with:

sudo chmod g+s /usr/sbin/smtpctl
sudo chmod g+s /usr/sbin/smtpctl

and then

sudo rc-service smtpd start

Even though I think I should not need to start it to use only sendmail.

PackagesTestingReplace RequestVery LowMedium replace request: NetworkManager with wpa_cuteUnconfirmed
Task Description

I know there are plans to remove NetworkManager. I wondered if we could replace it in 0.4 with Wpa_Cute. seen in the above link.

I haven’t been able to compile it, but it has been updated as recent as 2018 december (stable)

or 2019 january. :)

WPA_GUI doesn’t seem to work well for me, it runs into weird errors when I start it. Long story short, I run into this issue with wpa_supplicant when i do it manually:

Password-related problems

wpa_supplicant may not work properly if directly passed via stdin particularly long or complex passphrases which include special characters. This may lead to errors such as failed 4-way WPA handshake, PSK may be wrong when launching wpa_supplicant.

In order to solve this try using here strings wpa_passphrase <MYSSID> «< “<passphrase>” or passing a file to the -c flag instead:

# wpa_supplicant -i <interface> -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/example.conf

In some instances it was found that storing the passphrase cleartext in the psk key of the wpa_supplicant.conf network block gave positive results (see [2]). However, this approach is rather insecure. Using wpa_cli to create this file instead of manually writing it gives the best results most of the time and therefore is the recommended way to proceed.
Problems with eduroam and other MSCHAPv2 connections

This is my issue with wpa_supplicant sadly... and I do not know how to workaround that without a GUI.

but Wpa_Supplicant_gui does not fix it either, it doesn’t even load properly on my other laptop.

It says it cannot get the status of wpa_supplicant when I load it.

This could be an issue if you get rid of NetworkManager for some users.

So yeah, please take a look at my request okay? Wait for 0.3 to be released to add this if possible. I know you guys are overworked, etc... and it doesn’t need to be done now anyhow. ;)

PackagesTestingBug ReportMediumMedium[emacs] crush after swayResearching
Task Description

I have installed Hyperbola on two laptops. And I have noticed that after running sway and exiting out of sway, GNU emacs crushers on console. It is easy to repeat it:

1. Run sway
2. Exit sway or killall sway
3. Try running emacs on console, there will be crush
4. log out, log in, and emacs will work on console again

Yet it should not crush.

PackagesTestingImplementation RequestMediumMediumlinux-libre-lts-hypersec: New package with extra securi...Deferred
Task Description

Description: Per a user request and to better secure the kernel, we can embed the cryptsetup and ciphers in the kernel. This would mean rather than exposed modules, they are built-in to the kernel and ready to use even without an intramfs.

To be embedded: ciphers aes, twofish, serpent; sha256, sha512 - and the necessary modules (don’t forget the block modes xts, lvm and cryptsetup ...)

Additionally, we could include USB Guard and any other features that meet our social contract and security outlook.
