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.

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

GeneralImplementation RequestVery HighCritical POWER (ppc64le) porting Closed
100%
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 .

GeneralImplementation RequestDeferMedium ARM/POWER porting Closed
100%
Task Description

In particular, I would like to see the a20 arm processor supported and also, the talos 2 desktop supported. (powerpc)

The a20 is important because it will be supported by this: https://www.crowdsupply.com/eoma68/micro-desktop

I would really love to have buy this and see it supported by Hyperbola. :)

Within a year if you can support that, I would be extremely, extremely pleased.

as for the powerpc one, I don’t really plan on getting it, but I know that some people may, and I think that it would be good for them to be able to move onto hyperbola. The first is more important to me though.

By either December or next January, is when I would probably want it to be supported. :)

Also, ath9k usb wifi cards would need to be supported for this though... just to warn you.

I already am donating to you guys though through liberapay, please make this happen in the future. ;)

GeneralImplementation RequestVery HighHigh Port Iceape to UXP platform  Closed
100%
Task Description

Description:
Historically, Iceape was a re-branding of Seamonkey by the Debian project, with minimal modifications, in order to resolve branding disputes.

As of December 2013 , Iceape was no longer being maintained by the Debian project and users were encouraged to migrate to other alternatives for security patches.

However, since Seamonkey is being maintained from Thunderbird source and Hyperbola is porting Icedove to UXP platform , it could be built on the UXP platform which contains multiple security and privacy improvements.

TODO list:

  • Change Iceape-UXP logo typeface from the non-free “Libertad Book” to free “DejaVU Sans”.
  • Rename Iceape to Iceape-UXP in logo typeface.
  • Check “Seamonkey” remaining references.
  • Fix/adapt confvars.sh to UXP-based applications. (eg. MOZ_APP_VERSION=52.9.`date –utc ‘+%Y%m%d’`)

GeneralImplementation RequestVery HighHigh Port Icedove to UXP platform Closed
100%
Task Description

Description:
Historically, Icedove was a re-branding of Mozilla Thunderbird by the Debian project, with minimal modifications, in order to resolve branding disputes. Debian since discontinued Icedove after reaching an agreement with Mozilla over the use of it’s trademark.

Otherwise, new Thunderbird will use Quantum, a platform that contains numerous privacy, freedom, and trademark issues, in addition to an ever expanding Google Chromium code base which breaks compatibility with previous versions. Therefore, i suggest port our current Icedove from the deprecated XUL platform to UXP one like our Iceweasel-UXP.

TODO list:

  • Remove SSL Error Reporting telemetry from installer/package-manifest.in. [0]
  • Add missing emoji browser/fonts/”TwemojiMozilla.ttf” library to UXP sources
  • Change Icedove-UXP logo typeface from the non-free “Libertad Book” to free “DejaVU Sans”.
  • Rename Icedove to Icedove-UXP in logo typeface.
  • Check “Thunderbird” remaining references.
  • Fix/adapt confvars.sh to UXP-based applications. (eg. MOZ_APP_VERSION=52.9.`date –utc ‘+%Y%m%d’`)

Iceweasel-UXPSecurity IssueVery LowHigh Noscript continual update request, Closed
100%
Task Description

I would like it if you could, fork noscript legacy and constantly update it based on the webext one’s changes without of course, using the webext.

What I mean, is be applying the new security fixes they put into the webext one (the ones you need)

and then, apply them into iceweasel-classic’s noscript.

Even if you plan on updating it once a month, this is critical in my opinion for keeping the browser safe.

5.1.85 is the current latest legacy noscript version within noscript.net’s website.

ps, this is doable right?

We don’t want obsolete software after all.
