Has the Openbox wiki been hacked or something?

Fri, 2018-06-22 18:33

In all honesty, I'm not too familiar with contributing to wikis, but I was trying to see how relevant openbox is (last updates/releases etc) because I used it on a fair amount of live distros in the past and was considering it as my preferred WM.  

Anyway, I clicked this link mistaking it for changes to the project instead of it's wiki (wasn't giving my full attention in the moment, heh)...but that page looks really fishy to me.  

It's surely not normal for wikis to have that many new user accounts created over that timeframe, is it? Or am I completely missing something here?

Kde 5.13 on wayland is the best tablet environment by far

Fri, 2018-06-22 16:25

Due to the awesome virtual keyboard that actually works. Xwayland is not supported but Fallon browser (new qupzilla) pinch to zoom and keyboard detect makes it the only environment that actually works (caribou and gnome in general is such garbage in baytrail hardware)

Disable PCI device (GPU) (at boot)

Fri, 2018-06-22 12:54

I have a DIY NAS box. I rarely need a GPU in it, but taking it out and getting it in is still a hassle whenever I need a monitor, to enter BIOS, for example.

I wonder if I could just leave it inside but disable and poweroff it from the system, and leave it like that until I need it. My NAS reboots now and then so I'll need a semi-permanent solution for this.

I don't want to just leave it on mostly because there's not enough ventilation in the place where NAS is located to dissipate so much heat, and power consumption.

Thanks for your time.

Does evdev not work with wireless gamepads?

Fri, 2018-06-22 10:01

I'm trying to set up my Xbox One controller on my Arch system. I got the bluetooth working, but I only see is show up as a 'js' in /dev/ and not -event-controller. It's not listed when I use the command evdev-joystick -l either. But when I plug it in it shows up for evdev no problem. So what am I missing?

Also, this is just a small fraction of the troubles I'm having to get this to work with Steam on Wine.

TLS/SSL Role in Browser Exploits + Does a Person Need to Hack a Computer OS in Order to Hack the Computer's Firmware?

Fri, 2018-06-22 01:06


  1. If a person has a browser exploit, can they use it against their target if the target is using SSL/TLS when browsing online, or only against HTTP traffic? Either, way, how/why or why not?

  2. If a large and powerful adversary wants to remotely hack a target's computer in order to attack and infect the target's firmware, does the adversary first need to hack the target's OS, or can they just go right to hacking the firmware? (For example, is an OpenBSD OS more secure against the computer's firmware being hacked, or does the OS not matter?)

Thank you.
