Got a firmware update notice for my Lenovo T460p via gnome-software on my FedoraBook. Tried it, and it worked, although I am completely in secure boot mode with my own keys. Because I signed /efi/EFI/fedora/shimx64.efi it could execute fwupx64.efi.
Of course, this opens up a security hole, because an attacker could then execute any fedora signed efi (grub, kernel, etc.). Note to myself: replace shimx64.efi with a dummy efi executor.
Back to the firmware update: As I said, it worked fine... but: *IT REMOVED ALL EFI BOOT ENTRIES!* So, I have to find the culprit, either the fwupx64.efi or the firmware update itself. Any maybe I should install in the single OS also the fallback /efi/EFI/Boot/bootx64.efi by default.

Turned on squashfs compression for FedoraBook. I was afraid, that with compression enabled, xdelta would not produce small deltas. But it does!! 😀
root.img changed from 4.1GB to 1.8GB
Delta for no-change: 20MB
Delta from current Fedora 29 to Fedora 30: 633MB

Rant: Why does dd not take the blocksize of the devices in account?

dd always defaults to bs=512 which is horribly slow nowadays with SSDs and USB sticks. The default should be 4096.. Any arguments against that?
# dd conv=fsync bs=512 ...

Ich blockieren manchmal Leute, die z.B. ständig #linux für französische Posts nutzen und so in meinem Stream landen, aber nett ist das nicht...

Wäre mal ein schönes Feature. Vielleicht könnte man einstellen, welche Sprache man normal nutzt (als Default) und das im Post mit !en oder so überschreiben...

How to change the display manager on Linux


With Linux you can switch between login screens quite easily and you are not just stuck with the default one for your distro. But also note that some login screens prefer a specific display manager to work optimally with its themes. This article explains a bit more on how to do it.

headless #Linux desktop
(picturing decapitated penguin) Yeesh!
 
I've been using #NoVNC to access a headless #Linux desktop via the web when working at some of my more paranoid clients (who don't want me to access the open web, for instance). It's dead simple to set up and maintain, and it gives me access to an always-on desktop. You can run the whole thing in a #Docker container, so it couldn't be much simpler. Put https termination in front of it, mount a /home volume and you're good to go!

Heb12 v0.3.0 Beta 2 Released


This is a pre-release version of #Heb12 #Bible for desktop version 0.3.0. There are a few changes from beta 1. Most notably the bookmarking feature, and the ameythist theme.

Version v0.3.0 stable is coming out by the end of October!

Note: we currently only have packages for #Linux ready, but check out our wiki on GitHub for information about making your own packages for #Windows or #MacOS.

I have been busy, so in the two months from beta 1 not too much has changed.
