Can't find normal.mod in ubuntu 18.04

Reddit - Sun, 2018-08-05 12:35

I'm stucked with the grub rescue screen after updating Ubuntu 18.04. I followed the instructions online but I can't get pass the insmod normal command. I keep on getting error: file '/boot/grub/i386-pc/normal.mod' not found message.

I navigated through the i386-pc directory but I can't find normal.mod along with other .mod files. Is there a way to fix this problem without having to reinstall Ubuntu?

Is that GNOME memory leak fix or so low to be noticed?

I never able to understand that memory leak issue. Is that any special hardware specific.

I watched https://youtu.be/zQCOO-9HZvU many times, and I can't reproduce that. free -h shows same ram used no matter how many times I press meta key. What's the point?

Security: SSH, Alaska and the Use of Windows

TuxMachines - Sun, 2018-08-05 08:07
  • The default OpenSSH key encryption is worse than plaintext

    There’s nothing wrong with the RSA key pair itself: it’s just the symmetric encryption of the private key. You can’t mount this attack from just a public key.

    How do you fix this? OpenSSH has a new key format that you should use. “New” means 2013. This format uses bcrypt_pbkdf, which is essentially bcrypt with fixed difficulty, operated in a PBKDF2 construction. Conveniently, you always get the new format when generating Ed25519 keys, because the old SSH key format doesn’t support newer key types. That’s a weird argument: you don’t really need your key format to define how Ed25519 serialization works since Ed25519 itself already defines how serialization works. But if that’s how we get good KDFs, that’s not the pedantic hill I want to die on. Hence, one answer is ssh-keygen -t ed25519. If, for compatibility reasons, you need to stick to RSA, you can use ssh-keygen -o. That will produce the new format, even for old key types. You can upgrade existing keys with ssh-keygen -p -o -f PRIVATEKEY. If your keys live on a Yubikey or a smart card, you don’t have this problem either.
