    Yes, there are many ways how to make the life of the Evil Maid harder. I never disputed that.

    Custom stuff makes things more obscure and may require a complex bootkit or several rounds of access...

    On an EFI system, temporarily changing the boot order is as easy as running
    # efibootmgr --bootnext NNNN
    On BIOS systems this can be more tricky, a backup copy of the NVRAM would be necessary...

    No. What I am saying is that:

    Evil Maid turns off USB boot.
    Evil Maid backs up LUKS header to some place near the end of the disk and replaces it with her own boot code.
    Evil Maid overwrites...

    But the article recommends turning on the Fedora full-disk encryption which uses a bog-standard (dracut?) initramfs. So an attacker knows what to expect and where to insert tee(1) calls to capture...

    If you store secrets outside home (like some of your programs writing to /tmp or /var/tmp, password hashes in /etc/shadow or whatever) then of course those need to be encrypted too. At some point it...

    @drSeehas
    The initial netbook craze happened mostly on Intel Atom N270 CPUs, which are 32-bit only. But the Diamondville silicon itself is 64-bit capable, just Intel decided to fuse it off.

    A couple years ago, the source code to the werkkzeug3 engine has been released under 2-clause BSD license, along with the .kkrieger first-person shooter (which is famous for its compact size).

    RE: PEP-0394, Gentoo did this too. The python version that /usr/bin/python points to is user configurable, but defaults to python3 since early 2012.

    There was a small amount of fallout, but thanks...

    I agree that it is a stupid recommendation to make without knowing about the threats for a particular system.

    For instance, full disk encryption will not protect against "Evil Maid" style attacks,...

    This piece of news is not very surprising, considering that Red Hat now targets 64 bit x86 and ARM servers.

    I wrote some time ago here that the LZMA-like compression ratio and the fast decompression make LZHAM a good candidate to replace LZMA/XZ in distro packages. Also squashfs would benefit on systems...

    µITX boards are usually for HTPCs or similar, where DisplayPort does not matter much. So it makes sense that not every board has it. I agree though that it is very bad that not even the option for...

    It is actually possible to use more than 6 displays on one AMD card through adapters that make two monitors behave like one to the graphics card.

    Zotac DP2HD/MDP2HD or Matrox...

    That is a limitation of the proprietary NVidia driver. With the free drivers and xrandr/PRIME there should be no such limitation.

    This thread has more information.

    I don't remember anyone calling NVidia evil for implementing an open standard.

    In this case, AMD did the right thing and went to VESA to have the Adaptive-Sync protocol standardized as part of the...

    Actually, an Itanium system was at #2 of the 24th Top500 supercomputers list. The ranking was determined by the Linpack benchmark, which is the classic benchmark for HPC systems.

    If you speak out against Scientology, at least they'll only send their lawyers and not the Inquisition.

    It lists onlx MXU ASE, but that could be due to the kernel not having detection for other ASEs implemented. Or maybe the SoC doesn't support them after all.
