14:47 < PaulFertser> Mikimatovic: do you understand what a filesystem is? What path is?
14:48 < Mikimatovic> no, i have never install anything on linux
14:50 < PaulFertser> Mikimatovic: that's not about installation or Linux, the kernel, or even GNU/Linux, the OS. That's about basic skills of using "computers".
14:53 < Mikimatovic> ok, i am verry good in windows, but i started usining linux uesterday, can you help me or to tell me where i can find ti?
— aarch64 is just another druggie name that the ARM people came up with after drinking too much of the spiked water in cambridge.
So please don't use "aarch64", because it's just f*cking crazy. And please don't use "armv8", because it's just completely retarded and confused.
landley.net . Не могу не признать обоснованность многих тезисов, высказанных им...Резко критическая по отношению к FSF статья об истории современного ПО (by Rob Landley):
Вы верите, что этот 30kloc файл без единого комментария, зато с тонной магических чисел -- действительно исходный код? Я чего-то как-то сомневаюсь, неужели проприетарщики настолько суровы... http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/gregkh/staging-next-2.6.git;a=blob;f=drivers/staging/brcm80211/phy/wlc_phy_n.c;h=950dfc6087107b86d90926e20111bddf5250cd1b;hb=staging-next
marc.info Броадком неожиданно объявляет о релизе современного свободного драйвера для своих wifi-железок. Ни слова извинений. IMHO, мудаки.
Few days ago, I was told that, doing Q&A, it is not my job to care that code is stupid, buggy and actually corrupts memory outside range that was
passed to it. Time to look around for new job, I guess...
"А вам слабо?"
13:09 < PaulFertser> raster: why do vendors still allow to guys to do "sim unlocking"?
13:11 < raster> PaulFertser: because they have very poor concepts of security
13:11 < raster> PaulFertser: to them rtemoving a header files == security.
13:11 < raster> now u dont have the api header.. uc ant use the library etc.
13:11 < raster> thats a real belief
13:12 < raster> i kid you not
13:12 < raster> thnk of it this way
13:12 < raster> open source programmers ar egenerally good
13:12 < raster> why? in the oss world u need to rely on literally being good to keep your head above water
13:12 < raster> if you are merely average or bad — you sink
13:13 < raster> in the end the law of the jungle in oss land means that oss devs tend to be like the top 1% of engineers
13:13 < raster> so they understand thgins like security
13:13 < raster> they know removing a ehader wont do anything
13:13 < raster> they also know that putting security sensitive stuff in a shared lib as oppoed to in aservice running as root
vs ui runing as user, is much more secure
13:13 < raster> etc.
13:13 < raster> they know about making code ope and being able to use digital signatures etc.
13:14 < raster> but.. those people are not 100% of the engineers u see working in real life at the places that make thigns
13:14 < raster> they are maybe 5% of them.
13:15 < raster> so... you see modem firmwares being hackable because of an incorrect belief that they secured it already — the
