[ACTUALIZACIÓN] #ARCHLINUX. rsync compatibility

The latest and greatest news from the Arch Linux distribution.

(https://www.archlinux.org/news/rsync-compatibility/) rsync compatibility
Jan 15th 2020, 21:14

Our rsync package was shipped with bundled zlib to provide compatibility
with the old-style --compress option up to version 3.1.0. Version 3.1.1 was
released on 2014-06-22 and is shipped by all major distributions now.
So we decided to finally drop the bundled library and ship a package with
system zlib. This also fixes security issues, actual ones and in future. Go
and blame those running old versions if you encounter errors with rsync

[ACTUALIZACIÓN] #ARCHLINUX. Now using Zstandard instead of xz for package compression

Entrada escrita por: Fernando Lanero Barbero

The latest and greatest news from the Arch Linux distribution.

(https://www.archlinux.org/news/now-using-zstandard-instead-of-xz-for-package-compression/) Now using Zstandard instead of xz for package compression
Jan 4th 2020, 21:35

As announced on the (https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-dev-public/2019-December/029752.html) mailing list, on Friday, Dec 27 2019, our package compression scheme has changed from xz (.pkg.tar.xz) to (https://lists.archlinux.org/pipermail/arch-dev-public/2019-December/029778.html) zstd (.pkg.tar.zst).
zstd and xz trade blows in their compression ratio. Recompressing all packages to zstd with our options yields a total ~0.8% increase in package size on all of our packages combined, but the decompression time for all packages saw a ~1300% speedup.
We already have more than 545 zstd-compressed packages in our repositories, and as packages get updated more will keep rolling in. We have not found any user-facing issues as of yet, so things appear to be working.
As a packager, you will automatically start building .pkg.tar.zst packages if you are using the latest version of devtools (>= 20191227).
As an end-user no manual intervention is required, assuming that you have read and followed the news post (https://www.archlinux.org/news/required-update-to-recent-libarchive/) from late last year.
If you nevertheless haven't updated libarchive since 2018, all hope is not lost! Binary builds of pacman-static are available from Eli Schwartz' (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Unofficial_user_repositories#eschwartz) personal repository, signed with their Trusted User keys, with which you can perform the update.

#SAILFISHOS BY #JOLLA. A new decade for Sailfish OS

Entrada escrita por: Fernando Lanero Barbero

(https://blog.jolla.com/a-new-decade-for-sailfish-os/) A new decade for Sailfish OS
Dec 31st 2019, 11:14

As the year 2020 and a new decade are just around the corner I'd like to thank all our partners, customers, community members, and fellow sailors across the world for being part of the world-changing Jolla Sailfish story for another year. Not only was 2019 a good year but the entire decade has also been a wild ride for us together. Sincere thanks for sailing it with us!
Our dear Sailfish OS, and our company Jolla is steadily approaching an age of 10 years. Most of you know the (https://sailfishos.org/info/) history. Already from the start we had a bold vision of offering the world a transparent, trusted and privacy-preserving independent alternative for the most personal tech device we use to manage our daily lives – the smartphone. This is the vision we've been carrying through all stages of the story, from developing and offering Jolla branded devices in the early days, to the licensing business we've been pushing for the past few years.
We are mobile and tech enthusiasts who want to build and develop a mobile operating system we want to use ourselves, and to perfect Sailfish OS for our licensing customers. In parallel we've created the Sailfish X program to carry on the Jolla device heritage for all you like-minded people who want to be independent from the big players, who cherish privacy and data integrity, and who simply just enjoy being boldly different!
Strong partnerships and rigorous deep development
The Sailfish OS product is in great shape, and during this year we have released all together six (6!) (https://blog.jolla.com/category/software-updates/) new Sailfish 3 software releases and six SDK releases. These releases have included enhancements and major features for security, overall user experience, application handling and redesign of some core Sailfish apps. During 2019 we also released a totally rearchitected version of our unique Android-apps-on-native-Linux app support, now including support for Android 8.1 level apps for compatible Sailfish devices. We also launched support for the Sony Xperia 10, our first device to come with user data encryption enabled by default.
Implementing user data encryption has also been a major effort including changes to many different areas of the device. System startup, alarms, emergency calls, system upgrades, and many other areas were impacted by these changes, which required over 12 months of work.
During 2019 our partnership with Open Mobile Platform (OMP) in Russia advanced significantly, and the project has taken great steps forward. Some of the news is available on (https://omprussia.ru/news.html) OMP's web page.
What to expect in 2020?
Our expectations for the year include new licensing customers, a rapidly growing number of new Sailfish OS users both through our licensing customers and the Sailfish X community program. We will continue to develop the product to match and exceed the needs of our customers, and also to enhance the day-to-day experience for all Sailfish users.
Our 2020 Roadmap includes improving security architecture for UI, privacy-preserving multi-user support, and new enablers for cloud-based services, to name a few. In addition, our product roadmap includes several important updates for Sailfish OS developers. We will be updating our compiler toolchain, working to improve the SDK, and to offer more APIs with documentation to better serve our developers in creating native Sailfish OS apps. We're also working to enhance communication between all Sailfish OS developers by introducing updates to our online discussion tools.
While development is continuing at an increased pace, we are also working on new licensing partnerships in new countries. These cases take a lot of time to push through, and we will be working hard to bring these up and live during the first half of 2020.
We are now at a great starting point for another Sailfish decade to come. I want to use this opportunity to thank all Sailfish partners and fans for the past decade and wish the best of success to us all. Happy New Year and decade everyone!
Your captain sincerely,

Dec 20th 2019, 14:37

In the process of (https://bugs.archlinux.org/task/64892) Xorg cleanup the update requires manual
intervention when you hit this message:
:: installing xorgproto (2019.2-2) breaks dependency 'inputproto' required by lib32-libxi
:: installing xorgproto (2019.2-2) breaks dependency 'dmxproto' required by libdmx
:: installing xorgproto (2019.2-2) breaks dependency 'xf86dgaproto' required by libxxf86dga

when updating, use: pacman -Rdd libdmx libxxf86dga && pacman -Syu to perform the upgrade. After the update it will be safe to also remove
the "xorgproto" package.

Hosty, un bloqueador de anuncios para todos los sistemas operativos Unix y similares a Unix (Linux, SailfishOS, GNU, BSD, Mac OS X, FreeBSD, OpenBSD)

Entrada escrita por: Fernando Lanero Barbero
Instala manualmente hosty en SailfishOS, el bloqueador de anuncios "system-wide" para sistemas Unix y similares a Unix.
Hosty tiene como objetivo bloquear cosas molestas diseñadas para robar tiempo como anuncios, software peligroso como spyware y cosas que dañan la privacidad del usuario. De forma predeterminada, funciona descargando una lista predefinida de dominios para bloquear y agregar al archivo de hosts del sistema (manteniendo intactas las reglas existentes).

En la lista predefinida no se acepta censura política ni objetivos paternalistas como el bloqueo de pornografía o juegos de azar, NO se acepta nada que dañe la LIBERTAD del usuario.


  • curl
  • awk
  • 7z
  • zcat
  • gpg
  • crontab

Instala los requisitos
devel-su pkcon install p7zip-full gawk gzip
Crea un enlace simbólico para gpg. No es la forma más elegante de conseguir tener gpg1 en SailfishOS pero sí la más sencilla (y funciona, que es lo importante)
devel-su ln -s /usr/bin/gpg2 /usr/bin/gpg
Instala vixie-cron desde openrepos.net

Instala hosty

Antes de poder instalar hosty en tu máquina con Sailfish, deberás tener configurado sudo en la misma. Sigue estos pasos y luego vuelve aquí.

curl -L git.io/hosty | sh

El instalador preguntará si ejecutar siempre la última versión del código hosty, para lograr esto, las actualizaciones de código se descargan de este repositorio en cada ejecución. Se incluye un mecanismo de verificación, hosty se asegurará automáticamente de que las actualizaciones sean firmadas por el autor.

Aún así, es posible que no guste la idea de confiar en el autor, entonces también se puede instalar hosty sin actualizaciones automáticas de código y verificar manualmente si hay actualizaciones disponibles.

Durante la instalación también se preguntará si se desea ejecutar automáticamente hosty de vez en cuando para actualizar su archivo de hosts con la última lista de dominios.

Durante la instalación de hosty, el propio instalador reportará ciertos errores. Simplemente los obviamos y volvemos a ejecutar, en caso de ser necesario:
curl -L git.io/hosty | sh

Lo único que no funcionará por ahora en hosty es la ejecución automática del script para mantener actualizados los filtros en el hosts. Recuerda ejecutarlo periódicamente de forma manual:
devel-su hosty


Tengo la manía de recordar mejor desde mis tiempos en Android "adAway" como nombre para fulminar publicidad, así que creamos un enlace simbólico a hosty para correrlo como más nos guste desde la terminal.
devel-su ln -s /usr/local/bin/hosty /usr/local/bin/adaway
Tras lo cual también podremos hacer para actualizar nuestro hosts:
devel-su adaway
