🍥 APT 2.9 Released: Debian's APT 3.0 To Have A New UI With Colors, Columnar Display & More | Phoronix


#Debian #Linux #Opensource

O nosso @rlafuente no Festival Impacto a discursar sobre: "Alguns mitos sobre a forma como nos (des)entendemos online".

One of the sad side-effects of the #xz #backdoor is that many projects feel like they need to move away from #autoconf, when the problem wasn’t autoconf itself, but shipping a bunch of .m4 files – and that nobody diffed repo vs tarball (if nobody does that, it doesn’t matter what you do in the repo, e.g. switching build systems).

This is sad because it means cross-compiling stuff will soon no longer be possible, as autoconf is so far the only thing that gets cross-compiling right. CMake is a complete mess, Meson is far from great for cross-compiling and everything else just outright doesn’t support it.

People, clean up your configure.ac, get rid of .m4 and audit repo vs. tarball! That’s less work, much more effective and doesn’t kill cross-compiling!

Also, if you absolutely must blame a piece of software that was used by xz for this: That’ll be #gettext, which was the reason for the insane amount of .m4 files in the first place. gettext is a mess and that is really something we should get rid of.

Last Saturday there was a dust cloud over Lisbon from the Sahara desert.


At least I got to test that the can work with mild desert dust clouds 😅

But it did took a bit longer than what I expected to get a fix.

' Doctor at Israeli Detention Camp for Gazans Blows Whistle on War Crimes
"Just this week, two prisoners had their legs amputated due to handcuff injuries, which unfortunately is a routine event."'

Today is a very exciting day for me. My contract at day-job has changed, and I'm now working an average of 2-days a week. This means I can now spend the rest of my working time on #FOSS, basically #postmarketOS and #GNOME and help move our mobile communities closer and forward together.

It's no coincidence I'm doing this some months after @craftyguy went full-time on this, as we were in contact about it before it happened, but it's amazing to see this second part of this plan becoming real!

Flabbergasted by people saying "Yes I agree Meta has been guilty of allowing genocidal hatred to spread, resulting in actual real life mass murder, but let's give them a chance to see how they do with their new platform."

No wonder marketers rebrand things, apparently rebranding washes away even the worst crimes 🤮


This is the wrong week for showing up out of the blue in projects with low maintenance effort and telling people what to do with the project.

Um bombista feroz inimigo do 25 de Abril nomeado vice-presidente da Assembleia no aniversário dos 50 anos. Desta vez não vai colocar a bomba na conduta de água de Santarém que abastece Lisboa como fez em 1975 ou irá? Seis meses sem agua durante o dia nos bairros altos de Lisboa até à reparação. Eu morava na Penha de França e tomava banho num fiozinho às três da manhã. Para ele somente: vai à merda, fascista.

When creating PDFs, avoid using "Print to PDF." A screen reader user may still be able to access the text of PDFs created this way, but heading structure, alternative text, and any other tag structure will be lost. Using "Save As" or "Export" can preserve these tags.

Nothing really substantial, but two of my new repositories are GPL now and I like it as my new default instead of MIT.

I laughed at FOSS before, but somehow, OSS not being enough for companies anymore pushes me towards OSS also not being enough for me.

While they migrate away to source-available proprietary software, I feel like I want to achieve the exact opposite with my work - to ensure that it helps to build the commons.

I may have some light criticism concerning the fact that "Bash inside a string inside YAML" has become the universal language for cloud computing

Do you have an old #PinePhone lying in the cupboard?

Dev versions of #ModemManager now support #GPS without a SIM card. Consumers of the MM API need some changes for this, so I submitted pull requests to #Geoclue (gitlab.freedesktop.org/geoclue), gnss-share (gitlab.com/postmarketOS/gnss-s), and my own simple #GNSS app Satellite (codeberg.org/tpikonen/satellit) (all 3 in different languages).

Soon it will be possible to use SIMless mobile phones for things like navigation and fitness tracking.


We are proud to be home to #Redict, the #fork of the formerly free (but no longer) Redis project. We are using #Redis on our own infrastructure for caching, and we are looking forward to migrate to the new version, then fetched from Codeberg. A small world … 😉

Missed the story? Get up to date here: redict.io/posts/2024-03-22-red

Directly check out the code? Check the #Codeberg repo: codeberg.org/redict/redict

The Redis thing underscores a key point: _open source is not enough_. We need _community built software_ -- free and open source licenses are just one aspect of that.

If a company requires you to assign copyright (or equivalent re-licensing rights) in an asymmetrical way, they will inevitably eventually decide to take that option once they want to cash in on the goodwill you've built-them (let alone the code).
