Lennart Poettering: Open Source Community "Quite a Sick Place To Be In"

F.Ultra Re:Stay out of our business then..... (993 comments)

So you just do not have a clue do you? If you even bothered to do any form of search you would have found out that it works exactly like I wrote. There is no httpd server in the systemd binaries, none in the journald binaries. But in a very specific binary called the journald gateway daemon, which have a single function (i.e expose the local logs via http). If you don't run that daemon (which is the default) then you won't run any http server at all no matter how much you cry about it. And if an attacker could start this daemon to get acccess to your holy log files, then you have other security issues with your set up that is way way worse. But don't let reality get in your way pal.

F.Ultra Re:Stay out of our business then..... (993 comments)

The init system is not not a part of it at all. The journald gateway deamon is a separate binary that does one thing and only one thing: it allows http access to the local log files. If the daemon does not run, which it doesn't unless it's manually activated, then it has no impact what so ever. So NO, the init system or even journald does not contain a web server.

It's more like the 10 people who hates LP have a way of sounding like 10 million.

And the reason for including libmicrohttpd is so that people can get http access to their log files. This is only used by the journald gateway deamon (so not by systemd at all) and also only if you explicitly enable it with "systemctl enable systemd-journal-gatewayd.service". I think you have to practice your Google-fu a bit there pal.

With SystemD he changes the landscape so fundamentally that your old SysVinit scripts are still supported unaltered, what an asshole indeed.

Bash To Require Further Patching, As More Shellshock Holes Found

F.Ultra Re:There are no "remote" exploits for bash (329 comments)

Which is not surprising since you tested if bash on your system was vulnerable, not if /bin/sh was!

DMCA Claim Over GPL Non-Compliance Shuts Off Minecraft Plug-Ins

F.Ultra Re: What the heck? (354 comments)

How do you seriously consider that any form of copyright would dictate what people upstreams from you can do with their own code? Seriously!

DMCA Claim Over GPL Non-Compliance Shuts Off Minecraft Plug-Ins

F.Ultra Re: What the heck? (354 comments)

So Bukkit is licenses with something else than the GPL? Because there is nothing in the GPL that forbids you from linking with propietary code like the Minecraft Server, it can only be applied to code that links with the GPL:d data, not the other way around.

DMCA Claim Over GPL Non-Compliance Shuts Off Minecraft Plug-Ins

F.Ultra Re: What the heck? (354 comments)

So is this some failed attempt from Wolfe to open source the MInecraft server by somehow implying that Bukkit and and CraftBukkit can not be legally distributed unless Mojang relicenses Minecraft Server?

Ask Slashdot: Linux-Friendly Desktop x86 Motherboard Manufacturers?

F.Ultra Re:Sensationalism? (294 comments)

Asus might say that but they still allow updates via their built in EasyFlash2 utility that can read the firmware file from either a USB-drive or from the attatched disks. I myself always put the firmware file in /boot/efi/ and from there it's quite easilly reachable from within the UEFI itself.

Your Phone Can Be Snooped On Using Its Gyroscope

F.Ultra Re:The paper says... (96 comments)

And we really need "Kalman filters" on our phones? And there is no way in hell that one could filter out the noise level produced by audio (which must be extremely low) and still give enough resolution for the Kalman filter ?

Your Phone Can Be Snooped On Using Its Gyroscope

F.Ultra Re:The paper says... (96 comments)

Something tells me that this could quite easily be fixed by filtering out "noise" from the gyroscopes before presenting it to apps. There can hardly be a use case for this finegrained details from the gyro except this one of course.

The Man Responsible For Pop-Up Ads On Building a Better Web

F.Ultra Re:No they weren't (135 comments)

They? He worked for Tripod.com, they where a web hosting company. The car company bought ads to be shown on the sites that Tripod.com hosted. Removing that particular ad might have been a working solution but he just brought up the one case that made them rethink how they placed ads on their hosted sites, not that they _had_ to use popups due to this very car ad.

Well you asked for the site, and the site is funded by ads so in some sort of way you did ask for the ads.
