everything is shit...

The #ubuntu guided install will make a boot partition and LVM partition. But the storage configurator won't let you do the same thing yourself, it only lets you add whole disks to the LVM, it won't let you add an LVM partition of a disk that already has partitions added. 🤦‍♂️

so I wasnt satisfied with the #lvm experience on #ubuntu; the only gui i could find was #kde partition manager, but it didnt even give me any advanced options like the physical arrangement or stripe settings.

tried #fedora but the installer was slow and it crashed. so now i'm trying #opensuse, and I decided to try #raid 0 instead of lvm. I've done this before so maybe it'll work again...

Is it my imagination or does the search feature seem to be lacking in #Ubuntu? Maybe I need to set some parameters? If so, how to do that? Right now it only searches the directory I'm in. I've not used terminal for search, haven't figured that out. (General avoidance.)

Is there an app or something that soups up the search?

A new thing noticed recently on #Ubuntu 23.04 + #Linux 6.3.5 is ffmpeg core dumping every 15m as Shinobi is rotating a security cam video.

I'm sure this one is harmless, but I like to imagine the vulnerabilities of ffmpeg as a very imperfect interpreter of extremely complex input.

Could an attacker show up outside, carrying a weird sign board which would bork ffmpeg and allow RCE input?

What if the attacker had a special outfit and dance?

This might also be the final nail in the coffin for the Linux Mint team to switch to LMDE (based on Debian) as their flagship offering.

#LinuxMint #LMDE #Ubuntu #Debian

What is LMDE? LMDE is a Linux Mint project which stands for "Linux Mint Debian Edition".

Its goal is to ensure Linux Mint can continue to deliver the same user experience if Ubuntu was ever to disappear. It allows us to assess how much we depend on Ubuntu and how much work would be involved in such an event.

LMDE is also one of our development targets, as such it guarantees the software we develop is compatible outside of Ubuntu.

 LMDE aims to be as similar as possible to Linux Mint, but without using Ubuntu. The package base is provided by Debian instead.

A lot of distros will probably be affected by Ubuntu switching to an immutable, fully "snapped" base.

As far as I know, most Ubuntu-based distros still rely on Canonical to provide updates for the Ubuntu base itself and many packages we install.

I'm guessing this move might force those distros to either integrate Snaps as well or roll out their own infrastructure for updates.

I'd appreciate it if someone can provide some insight on this.

I keep getting tempted to move away from #Ubuntu just because of how often people on here complain about it. But then I use it, and am like, "What's the problem again?"

I'm not mad about snaps but I also don't really use them. Enabling flatpak and flathub took two commands. In day to day I've never noticed it being slow or anything. The experience of using Ubuntu (orange haired step child) doesn't really feel any different to something like #fedora (golden child). Are we just looking for something to be mad about? Am I thinking Ubuntu is "going downhill" just because everybody says it is?

An immutable #ubuntu desktop built on snaps may be the right tool to showcase the abilities of #snap as a packaging format. CLI tools can be snapped right away and autoupdate, could make of this a semi rolling distro. Can't wait to see what the team at #Canonical is preparing.

Looking closer the patch included in this security update is

I was wondering if this is worth an #OpenBSD errata. What we found is that the patch has no effect on the generated code. It only shuts up the undefined behavior sanitizer.

So if the integer overflow here
matters, it's still not fixed (in Ubuntu and everywhere else)...

The accidentally committed version was from a tree where I worked on this.

I'm thinking of trying out running #OpenBSD on a server instead of #Ubuntu, because Derek Sivers recommended it for its security (particularly around the more controlled packaging).

I have basically zero experience with BSD, but a ton with #linux (redhat, ubuntu, arch, centos, amazon linux, etc.).

Any advice on making the transition? Is this a good move or unnecessary or bad?
