Re: Repo change requires acceptance

comment all the repo entries. do "sudo apt-get update. uncomment the repo entry, do "sudo apt-get update" once more. it's a rather rough way to do it but it should work

[TUT]enable DNS encryption by using dnscrypt-proxy

in the age of enhancing security over the network, DNS is among the last piece which relies on old unsafe technology. as with HTTPS technology, DNS encryption would add security layer to ensure that no one can snoop your DNS queries. I won't go deep into what and how the technology works. this tutor...

Re: Recent gnupg keyserver DOS attack

solydxk keys also provided as packages. debian and it's children by default using packages. the only exception would be ubuntu's PPA. AFAIK dirmngr is dormant (i.e it's not used until user manually use it). it could be activated by systemd socket or similar mechanism. btw, if we decided to modify th...

Re: Recent gnupg keyserver DOS attack

creating a blog about how to mitigate the issue would be nice. we should leave the keyring mechanism left for the user since deleting it would broke things. that post tell us about how to mitigate the issue, not to solve the issue. at one point the issue will get resolved and user could activate the...

Re: SolydX packages

autoremove does absolutely nothing, of course I checked that first, I'm not stupid. I guess Arjen did that before building the ISO. that's the "edit" part for :3 as a start, you can change the flag for the libs to automatic. by then autoremove will try to remove one or two things. after that you ca...

Re: SolydX packages

for a basic cleaning you can do "apt-get autoremove" it make us easier to sort the list. deborphan is highly aggressive so unless you really understand the function of the packages, it's better to leave it. aside from geodata stuffs, down until dnet, IIRC those packages listed are safe to remove. ye...

Re: Improving DNS security and privacy and upcoming firefox/waterfox changes

dnssec only validate the dns query to ensure the response comes from valid source. that's the only thing it did. everyone else still could see your dns query and snoop everything between your system and dns server. dnssec only protect you when someone specifically attack you. in normal situation the...

Re: Support for Solydx 9 after 10 goes live

you'll still got security updates from debian repo. the solydxk packages, however, AFAIK doesn't get updates. since the main version is based on stable, virtually there's no difference on your system. it will get supported for roughly next two year after solydxk 10 got released.

Re: Firefox/waterfox and DoH - what default to choose?

your tendency to jump into conclusion made me a lil bit worried...like...how come dnssec-trigger comes as conclusion when it's not even mentioned once. that aside, neither dnssec-trigger, unbound or bind9 works with dnscrypt. isn't it already implemented on dnscrypt? we still have 2 years long to di...

Re: where did my bluetooth service go - and why?

for the precise reason, you can check the logs. my guess is that the service is using socket mechanism to reduce head memory cost. it only activated if the bluetooth is unblocked. the service is act as intermediary between the system and the apps. it has no contol for the device. only tools like rfk...

Re: Firefox/waterfox and DoH - what default to choose?

currently, no. it seems most of us like to left the configuration to the user. though, since DoT nor DoH doesn't run OOTB in our system, when we decided to turn on DNS encryption, we'll need to decide which provider will be used

Re: where did my bluetooth service go - and why?

perhaps the first one is an interface between the card and the system. the system misinterpreted it and see it as two separate interface. it usually related with bios stuffs so I'm not quite sure

Re: Solydxk restarts without loading from grub

without the logs it would be hard to analyze the problem. a quick shot would be either kernel or graphic incompatibility. if that true, installing another kernel should fix it

Re: Firefox security update not showing for EE

that's not debian's policy. I'm not sure where did you got that impression but security patch always got prioritized in debian. normal package have 10 days delay on sid while security patches, depends on the severity, have 1,3, or 5 days. you can use tracker.debian.org to know the situation of certa...
