and already there more than 5 different IPs trying to brute-force SSH access. Is it worth using fail2ban even though I only use ssh keys?
Really impressed with how simple it is to setup a firewall in Alpine Linux using awall.
Nextcloud running in a docker container feels sluggish. Their Linux client segfaults on my home machine, and qt5webkit, one of its dependencies, segfaults when it tries to compile on another machine. The Android app just kept crashing over and over after an update .... Syncthing works great through, both via relay and when I give it explicit computer IPs on my home VPN. I've heard when it was OwnCloud; people complained about data loss. So this is a sign to give up on it. Good effort at least.
Reposting a comment I made on HN regarding the proposed EU ban on facial recognition technology:
>I love coming to these threads to watch the crowd who makes their living from invading the public's privacy attempt to rationalize their worldview, find loopholes, etc. If your job is mass surviellance, it has always been unethical and the law is catching up to you. The purpose of these kinds of laws isn't to bring your business in line - it's to put you out of business.
Should I stop letting the telemetry and business practices bother me and go back to using #Firefox? is there really anything to worry about?
Fellow Fedinauts, I must call on you for help yet again!
My original idea was to dual-boot OpenBSD and Void Linux on my 112 GB SSD, which meant I had to first learn how to do a proper dual-boot.
After much reading, I decided that it would be nice to have the following partitioning scheme:
sda1 (2 GB) mounted as /boot
sda2 (64 GB)sda5 (12 GB) mounted as /var for both OSes (possibly nodev && noexec)
sda6 (4 GB) mounted as /tmp for both OSes (possibly nodev && nosuid && noexec)
sda7 (8 GB) mounted as / for OpenBSD
sda8 (16 GB) mounted as /usr for OpenBSD (possibly nodev)
sd9 (8 GB) to be used as / for Void
sd10 (16 GB) to be used as /usr for Void (possibly nodev)
sda3 (16 GB) for swap
sda4 (30 GB) mounted as /home for both OSes (possibly nosuid && nodev)
(Yeah, I know, that is a lot of partitions)
However, while I was reading through OpenBSD's documentation I hit a massive roadblock: the filesystem.
What I have gathered is:
OpenBSD requires FFS on its partitions
Void Linux cannot work with FFS partitions
What do you suggest that I do? Is there a way for me to make this work, or should I just install OpenBSD and maybe run Void in a VM/form a USB?
