GeneralImplementation RequestVery HighCriticalPOWER (ppc64le) 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 the Power9-based Talos II promises to be a great architecture example for workstations and servers environments where Hyperbola is focused since is a fully free long-term support distribution.

Devices like this are the future of computing that Respects Your Freedom and for that reason it’s a high priority for Hyperbola port all packages for the POWER architecture (power64le).

NOTE: POWER porting is focused only for Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre .

Task Description

Develop HyperBK (Hyper Berkeley Kernel), a BSD descendant kernel with GPL-compatible licenses preserved, non-compatible ones removed, and new code written under GPL-3 for HyperbolaBSD.

TODO:

  • Download OpenBSD kernel source code from OpenBSD siteDONE
  • Download LibertyBSD scripts to deblob and rebrand kernel from their scripts. → DONE
  • Push source to HyperBK’s project. → DONE
  • Rebrand OpenBSD kernel to HyperbolaBSD with LibertyBSD scripts. → DONE
  • Rebrand entire code (functions, variable, pointers, etc) under HyperbolaBSD → DONE
  • Remove files under non GPL-compatible licenses → DONE
  • Import code from another BSD systems under GPL-compatible licenses → IN PROGRESS
  • Write new code under GPL-3 → IN PROGRESS
  • Package HyperBK for HyperbolaBSD.

PATCHING NOTE

When the check concerns kernel, we obviously want to match with HyperbolaBSD.

Example of triplet check:	hyperbolabsd)
Example of uname -s check:	HyperbolaBSD)
Example of uname -r check:	0.1)

Icedove-UXPImplementation RequestDeferLowSwiftdove-UXP theme for Icedove-UXPUnconfirmed

Task Description

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.

chroot-nspawnBug ReportMediumMedium[chroot-nspawn] Create mount points if mountpoint exit ...Unconfirmed
0%
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
Spawning container megver83 on /var/lib/archbuild/chroot1/megver83
Press ^] three times within 1s to kill container.
mount: /sys/fs/cgroup: mount point does not exist.
mkdir: cannot create directory '/sys/fs/cgroup/blkio': No such file or directory
ln: failed to create symbolic link '/sys/fs/cgroup/cpu': No such file or directory

mount: /sys/fs/cgroup/blkio: mount point does not exist.
mount: /sys/fs/cgroup/cpuset: mount point does not exist.
mount: /sys/fs/cgroup/devices: mount point does not exist.
mount: /sys/fs/cgroup/freezer: mount point does not exist.
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://git.hyperbola.info:51100/~git/software/chroot-nspawn.git
 ! [remote rejected] master -> master (unpacker error)
error: failed to push some refs to 'ssh://git.hyperbola.info:51100/~git/software/chroot-nspawn.git'

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
