I've just viewed your profile, you're FBI, f**k you g-man, BIH.

I've recently read that systemd might be insecure?

Comments?

2017-03-29 09:24:21 -0600 asked a question PitBull for Fedora? 25/Gnome

There's a Security OS called Qubes https://www.qubes-os.org/ that compartmentalizes applications from one another and the OS itself. It also allows the creation of multiple profiles for each application. In other words, if my favorite browser is FireFox and I want to create separate "banking" and "blogging" profiles, I can do it in Qubes OS and each instance of FireFox will maintain it's own history and bookmarks as well as other forms of isolation that will prevent one instance from interacting with or interfereing with any other. Also, you can configure each instance to completely forget itself or persist after shutdown. Great in case one of your profiles gets hacked. Apparently, Edward Snowden claims that he uses this OS. That seems reasonable considering this OS's capabilities. Should be great for a wardriving laptop.

Apparently "PitBull" https://www.codeweavers.com/pitbull offers similar capabilities for RHEL. Has anyone used this. Can it be installed on Fedora?

Thanks

BTW, Brave browser handles YouTube videos lots better than firefox or chrome. They look really beautiful in Brave. The only recommendation I would give someone new to Brave on Fedora is to make sure you follow the wiki instructions for installing and activating flash player. After following these instructions, you WILL have to completely restart Brave for these to take effect. Then the enable Flash Player slider switch will be colored in and fully operational.

So far Brave is the best browser I've ever used in Linux. I highly recommend everyone try it!

Epic privacy browser (currently, only available for Windows and Mac) does this perfectly. It recognizes bookmark folders and distinguishes between bookmarks in the bookmarks menu and those on the bookmarks toolbar. Regardless of whether you import from FireFox or from a bookmarks.html file, they get organized properly in Epic, with no manual configuartion needed.

That being said Brave browser is just as fast and easy to use as Epic and does everything else just as well. I WILL make Brave browser my default browser in Fedora 25 as soon as I feel comfortable navigating withing it.

The only negative coment I have about the Brave browser is that, the bookmarks manger is a bit primamtive. You can't cut and paste bookmarks, you can only drag and drop them. Also, I have my bookmarks organazed in folders and this completely confuses Brave's bookmarks manager; and if you mess something up, there's no way to bulk delete either bookmarks, bookmark folders or all the bookmarks at once, so you can just start over. Also, if you use the bookmark toolbar in FireFox and you import bookmarks from there, almost everything just gets dumped on the bookmark bar in Brave.

2017-03-29 03:58:20 -0600 commented answer How to disable packagekit?

I think the thread you're referring to is here:

https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/ques...

It suggested the following. I hope it works.

[xxxxx@xxxxx ~]$ sudo systemctl mask packagekit.service
[sudo] password for xxxxx: 
Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/packagekit.service → /dev/null.
[xxxxx@xxxxx ~]$
2017-03-28 19:45:32 -0600 commented answer dnf and packagekit metadata downloads - 25/Gnome

Thank you for the reply,

These answers are very useful and informative; however regarding the bandwidth issue, I would like to limit the bandwidth used by dnf and gnome-packagekit; not the system overall. I want to continue my work on the network, while these are being downloaded.

Also, I use sudo dnf update all the time; however there appears to be no way to turn automatic update off in fc25/Gnome. What I really need is the ability to turn automatic updates off, until automatic updates can be throttled not to take all available bandwidth on my pc; not the home lan.

2017-03-28 14:13:10 -0600 asked a question Has Anyone Tried cjdns?

Has anyone tried cjdns? This is an adhoc network designed to replace the existing internet wire by wire, without a telecom.

There's also a Windows installer here:

http://www.santacruzmesh.net/installe...

I have it installed. Quite a challenge. Now I have to lurk on irc and ask to join. I haven't done this yet, as the process seems tedious; but it's the only thing I have left to do. I'll bet the Windows app just runs out of the box, so I might try it first. From what I've read. it boots up fast, scales well and doesn't have the latency of Tor, i2p, or Freenet. So far, it seems like it has potential; but I won't know 'till I actually connect and take it for a test drive.

Have any of you already tried it?

Thanks

In yumex-dnf, this is called gnome-packagekit. This appears to be deprecated, since there are no options to adjust or turn off automatic updates.

I believe most DNS requests go to 8.8.8.8, which is Google, especially if you live in the US.

Also, what I meant by castrating is covered at the link below, it has nothing to do with extentions:
