Sophos For Linux

Tue, 2018-09-11 01:02

I was wondering if anyone has had experience with Sophos for Linux. My Kubuntu machine needed an AV so I used Sophos. Seems wonky.

I use Sophos at work and on my personal Windows machine, but there is little user feedback on how well it performs on Linux.

ClamAV seems to be the "go to" in this thread with lots of evil stares at the other AVs.

Tl;Dr: Is Sophos for Linux worth installing for Kubuntu?

Question about GMA500/Paulsbo

Mon, 2018-09-10 23:28

It's been years since the GMA500 was released to angry customers (including myself), where it made perfectly good hardware perform like it was running in quicksand, so I figure this question is still going to have a disappointing answer as I realize most people just said, 'Screw that' to this chipset...but I'll ask anyway;

Has there been any improvements to the GMA500 support in Linux? Even windows got some hacks working; originally out of the box, Windows Vista ran at 4FPS using Aero and that was essentially the max frame rate of anything attempting to access graphics accelleration. However, some clever individuals apparently software hacked the drivers to switch some settings and now everything runs a lot better, getting upwards of 30-60FPS on applications that normally wouldn't even start and if they did, it was a slide show.

I would love to be able to get rid of windows on my little Fuji U820, but even Vesa drivers have a hard time even detecting the screen resolution and utilizing native display and then it's just rather choppy all around, putting me in the position to make the painful choice of going with the OS that is at least somewhat useable even if that OS is everything I hate about the state of modern computing.

At any rate, I expect I'll get no answer or disappointing answers, but if you're a bored hacker who knows how to reverse engineer hardware (intel apparently is in a contract to which they cannot give out the details for people to write a driver for this chipset), there's quite a few devices still around that are gimped with a gma500 built in that could use your attention sometime.

Thanks for reading and anything negative you have to say about GMA500, I've already heard it and agree.

Article about recovering from rm -rf /

Mon, 2018-09-10 21:30

Hello, first of all, let me begin by saying that I haven't executed this command ... I won't even type it in the command line in case my head bugs out and I accidentally press enter.

I'm talking about an article I read in 2013 about a company that had one of its people type it in the server I think and he was logged in as root. I'm not talking about the most recent case in 2016 that apparently was a marketing campagin by ... "masala" I think was the user's name. This probabably happened before 2013.

In the article I clearly remember the autor stating of how grateful he was to have commands such as ls, cd and echo, and how lucky that at the time they were integrated into the kernel. If I'm not mistaken they had to recreate some of the most basic programs hex by hex in order to have enough commands so that they could save what they had.

Does anyone remember this article? Anyone got any links?

PS: I think this kind of post falls in the rules of this subreddit ... depending on how you look at it it could be considered support request, or maybe it's irrelevant to the community. So if I've made any mistakes I'm sorry, so please let me know so I can do a better job in the future

What is the most common piece of hardware that runs Linux? I'd assume it would be a cash register, but I'm curious as to what you guys have to say.
