This paper on a malloc() replacement that DOES COMPACTION even on C/C++ is making the rounds: arxiv.org/pdf/1902.04738.pdf

Scarily beautiful.

Those who wrote that this thing has a steep learning curve weren't joking. Three days on and I still feel like a 5 years old touching a computer for the first time.

People, quick question. I'd like to play a game for Switch with good story and character development.

Xenoblade 2 or Octopath Traveler?

I already love flatkvm!

Let me introduce you to "Harold" the probably first train ever delivering woods in OpenTTD on flatkvm.

Things that work great: Starting OpenTTD, playing OpenTTD, entering fullscreen mode.

Things I didn't figure out yet: Leaving fullscreen mode 🤔

Today I learned about gdb-dashboard.

It is a ~/.gdbinit file which will add some nice fancy bells and whistles to to our out-of-the box gdb experience.

The title says Ubuntu, but it may have an impact on every distro running snapd (I've tested it on Fedora).

Yesterday was compromising containers. Today is putting systems running snapd at risk.

Make sure you're running a patched version.

CVE-2019-5736 / is a good reminder that containers still expose a significant attack surface from the Host. This is why projects like @katacontainers and @flatkvm exist.

I'd like to set up a backup Mastodon account on mastodon.social. Is there some kind of formal procedure to request an invitation?

IMHO, Wayland's biggest problem is that, while it brings a much need renewal to the Linux's display server stack, the *perceived* benefit from an end-user perspective is quite limited.

This means you're stuck pitching *internal* improvements to non-devs, which is a vain task.

BTW, this is another critical security issue successfully mitigated by the default SELinux policies. Looks like @rhatdan was right all along and the initial pain was worth it. 😉

If you're running containers, make sure you have SELinux in enforcing mode (the default in RHEL) and patch your nodes.

THIS. IS. SIMPLY. AMAZING.

I wasn't happy with sharing all clipboard updates on the Host with every @flatkvm session (a malicious app could be snooping), so I implemented a discrete mode and a helper tool ("flatkvm-paste") to only send data on-demand, and to an specific session. github.com/flatkvm/flatkvm-pas
