I hope it will make the people who want to use a GNU/Linux OS daily, do not think of the codecs as reason to not switch.

I see your perspective, but not the usefulness of your approach.

I prefer telling them how it works and that is a way to make actual documentation accessible. I also adapt my explanations to each person and situation.

It is preferable to have people who know how to use an OS and not being hanging around without knowing what to do because they expect even the most simple things done.

That said, codecs work great with Debian stock, so I am unsure about the issues you mention.

I agree with Salamander.

I would care about PostgreSQL and suggest tuning it. As minimum, increasing shared memory to 512 MB.

I use stock Debian.

No problems here.

In the case you use GNOME desktop and has issues with the deprecated AVI format still used in some playes and with GNOME Video app, just install libavcodec-extra or use GNOME-MPV (now named in another name I always forget).

The case for OpenSuse. In reality, they do the right thing given that is an European OS. It is illegal in some European countries to distribute several codecs by default given the copyright holders.

Instead of calling for a negation for their package management you should call for content distributors not using well-deployed and available open formats / codecs as well as the copyright holders of the propietary ones for putting these nonsense as rules.

Maybe integrating both?

To be exact, tagging would be useful a lot for me or similar.

Do you imagine using Lemmy as comment system for torrent-csv.ml over the torrents?

I use it everyday, the only issue is that I miss descriptions, which sadly are dependent on uploads to other sites such as ThePirateBay and so.

It would help me to differenciate files (I care for subtitles in media).

I would propose GoToSocial :3

It is still faulty on some features though.

You can always use the web redirector that is now redirect.invidious.io/ in the case you want to use Invidious, however, my point also covers PeerTube instances.

A link shared to a web redirector doesn’t cut rights to anyone in that sense. And every working Invidious instance includes a redirector too in the button “use other Invidious instance” or something similar :3

There is a problem with this:

  • workarounds are not solutions. this is only good when there is no alternative but this is not the case.
  • rights are not guaranteed by making the user work more to get their rights back and just masking the issue (privacy, free software use, etc)
  • that workaround works around certain web browsers, but not all, specially if they don’t support webextensions.
  • the “can go off-line” argument is a bit of personal undermining to the projects itself. There are plenty instances managed by organizations working as teams where this could be very difficult. You don’t need to be Google or Cloudflare to reach an acceptable support. In fact, I can ask with another reply following that logic: why are you using that Lemmy instance?

My experience comes from self-hosting in cloud and at home (as I am including the costs of the specific server needed in both cases).

Yes, I am focusing here on Mastodon alone. I am currently supporting GoToSocial project which has a good focus in low resources :3

First of all it isn’t that expensive, and second

I think that is very focused in Mastodon. I can assure that, by running a Mastodon server in recent years for 2-3 people very active and connected to a lot of instances is, in fact, very expensive.

for example, if you are an old fashioned investor, you want to block instances with people interested in cryptocurrencies and NFTs

I could also have other reasons and in fact other reasons are the most shared idea in the environment where I am.

he or she will see…

I guess here is where this person stands even if made a reference to LGBTQ+ before.

One thing I see is that this person doesn’t explain abbreviations like EDPS or GDPR like if the reader was gonna to understand at instant. The second word, maybe, but not the first.

Maybe a bit strategic as the first would cause doubts about the ideas in the post given that is the European Data Protection Supervisor…

It is, but Andi is still in development

Then it is not yet. :/

It does not make it Open Source in the moment they claim it. Open Source has requirements stated already by OSI. It is or it isn’t and there is no middle term.

Open Source requirements imply the same for Free Software plus some additional ones.

It is a bit sad they are only available using yet another nonFree platform.

It would be great if you used PeerTube or Invidious front-end to share the link next time.

AndySearch is not Open Source… they just release some parts and little ones even.

The first, the package server was already clarified in a post made by cannonical but still their server is propietary.

I don’t use it because it has a nonFree server side and is centralized.

GitHub is propietary software (which goes agaisnt this community).

GitLab.com instance runs GitLab Enterprise Edition which is propietary. TeDoMun offers an instance using the Community Edition which is FLOSS.

I would recommend SourceHut (sr.ht) or Gitea (codeberg.org, git.disroot.org, etc)

I am one of the people who reacted a while after the issue was opened.

Dating one.

There is Alovoa but federation is not implemented yet.

There was another one called Amore or similar but I am unsure if it is continued or was abandoned. Alovoa has more probabilities to get there.

I think you don’t understand what is even an inalienable interest, a right and which are the rights violated here. Yes, there is damage, in freedom.

There is no rare thing for hardware in H-Node working. I would like you to check it and availability. It is less, but it is not a rare case.

The option may exists based on such a list and any of the both sides would be affected negatively. In the same way it saves you time or impossibility in some cases, it would prevent my rights being harmed and save my time yet.

It would involve an initial effort in development, that is right. This would also help more for these rights that failing in the way is doing right now.

Rewording this:

A proposal I would accept is loading based in H-Node list to know if it works with it or not (a similar thing has been done with Linux-Libre but for enforcing not loading it). I would accept that, and I would give the option at boot time itself.

regardless of what some ideological demagogues say

I never pointed to you with ad hominems. Refrain to do that next time.

It is not my fault that you think that I am backed or not by some people like that, nor I should be the victim for such a case.

poVoq, I already explained how that works. Almost all the hardware can load it and it is done automatically, not based on an H-Node list to know if it works without it or not, which could be an option. If it is available, will be loaded and executed with compatible hardware.

Debian doesn’t have the fault for what the hardware vendors do, but has the fault for enforcing the situation when other options existed.

Including some optional firmwares in the install boot-medium infringes zero rights of yours and none of the 4 software freedoms are impacted by this.

Loading at boot time the firmware involves execution in applied hardware of software I have no power in.

Complain with the hardware vendors for making these firmwares a requirement if you will, but better not buy such hardware in the first place.

Doesn’t exclude that Debian did the worse thing. Options existed as I introduced before, and very obvious ones. If they needed help, I have no issues to provide it.

you are free to revert any such non-Free firmware

That is not how granting a right works. Damage of it is already made and no, there is no such thing as rare cases.

Additionally, the big part of the hardware in H-Node has non-free firmware available in the respective package, also embedded on boot.

First of all, thank you for the clarification.

Related to the inclusion of the installer, that is not what they meant AFAIK. The idea is loading and executing it when applicable, even if it is not needed (RTL 8188EE is an example) as was discussed previously in other voting or mailing list which I need to check.

Edited: it is also supported because, in offers to load the firmware, you must do it at boot time for the initialization of the hardware.

If you think I am throwing a RTFM I think you are not even reading the first part of my comment. So, in order to understand me correctly, I recommend you to read it carefully part by part.

I don’t see how the second parragraph applies wrongly here.

About your edition, I am unsure if you understand how rights exist. A right, or mostly a natural right while not being guaranteed, is deducible from inalienable interests. These are interests born of aware individuals and are as basic as “I need to eat”.

In this digital world, other inalienable interests are born, and new rights deduced from them. The “4 freedoms” about the software are no more than a build of these rights in the same way the letter of the human rights try to do the same. That is all, no more complex than that.

Rights are also not based on claim. An individual should not claim every time they want their right guaranteed, that is plainly impossible with all individuals. Rights are guaranteed first and get available even before you need them.

By loading, trying and executing propietary software in the devices I use you are violating these rights.

There are manufacturers doing that? Sure. That makes my fight useless because I already could have that being executed? No and pointing to that is a Nirvana fallacy itself: “as you are in shit, doesn’t matter what you do because everything would be like that”.

First, you confuse firmware with drivers.

Second, I am annoyed because I see this as a lack of respect for my digital rights. There was option to maintain both images or showing visibility to the other one.

Third, projects such as H-Node show that integration and help with the ecosystem could have worked by showing compatible hardware in first hand.

Forth, Debian was never for newbies and not for that, but because people don’t read manuals. A different aproach would have been educational promotion of the existing Debian manuals before even downloading and even focusing on usability and accesibility to them. Maybe even creating simple English version or a reduced set by chapters.

Fifth, any user should know which hardware is using and get familiar with it. The out of the box concept many people promote leads to the believe of black boxes as solution. A mixed approach is also an option by using H-Node for example.

This could have contributed to the following:

  • showing visibility to other projects working towards getting hardware work with free software.
  • helping new users to find such a hardware instead of falling in the fallacy of “If you don’t see it, it doesn’t exist”.
  • contributing to the digital illiteracy lacked by even medium range users of GNU/Linux family and almost all in a general sense using a computer.
  • respecting the digital rights of people instead of making a false declaration of failure.
  • this also derivates in being example for other projects towards getting or developing free software used in hardware such as firmware.
  • you still fit the purposes of the other part by setting the additional image in the most needed cases.

Can you point to the new version.

I see that this is the 2004 one and I don’t find a way to see the new version that is supposed to be mentioned here.

At least, I didn’t find it with a quick search with C-f and some links attached.

Edited: Ah, the information is in the mailing list yet.

In some places, such as Cuba, people make their own Debian mirrors.

General guide is in https://www.debian.org/mirror/ftpmirror and there are more instructions in the general script used.

Then you can point your /etc/apt/sources.list to it.

Another option, suggested in other comments, is downloading *.deb files manually for each package and dependency and performing an installation with dpkg -i package.deb.

In a more specific approach, you have https://wiki.debian.org/DebianRepository/Setup.

Do you remember when you install a new Debian system and you can get packages from the CD ROM or USB stick? Debian can point to a repository in physical media, including a directory.

Generally, you can sync a hard drive with it outside with one of the tools available for this in this last wiki page, attach it to your puter when you arrive at home and party.

Sounds good, so people who still rely on these devices like me can get it working perfectly without breaking.

Not on IvyBridge hardware as well as other.

I think that poVoq implied support for this and similar hardware using conversion layers.

Do you think that pictrs is gonna support S3-compatible storage?

I would like to interject here for one thing: individuals of other species have autonomous lifes, and we would be only responsible in the limits on which we have to take care of them as if they were our children or similar, which is mostly when we adopt them because they have no place in human society in an autonomous way.

All those are sentient, it was near to sponges without differentiated tissues.

Sentience is a feature of all animal species known with only two exceptions, one being sponges and another I don’t remember.

This was already measured, using even unethical methods, several years ago and received ratification in 2012, even when this was known since a long time ago.

This is to complement of what you mean.

About sexy_peach, there is a point, even if is just centric in animal welfarism (not caring about their inalienable interests and natural rights but just what allows you to maintain your consciousnesses clean while maintaining exploitation) having the first part partially right.

It is not that responsibility is a human-made concept itself, but one that applies to you, being in a certain state of knowledge and awareness, as a moral agent (moral judgment), whether this is not the case of individuals from other animal species which are moral subjects (as most humans in their infancy and in some hard situations).

Gemini community looking for a new mod
I realized that there was no current mod for the [Gemini community](https://lemmy.ml/c/gemini) yesterday. If I remember correctly, the old mod left this instance time ago. Since the community is still active, I am looking for a person or people who are interested in taking moderation there. The focus is based towards people who are already set in the community or in this instance itself.

What should I know about North Macedonia?
I have been studying Web Development since 2019 and, if everything goes as expected, I would be doing my practical part in North Macedonia through Erasmus+ program. Given that, what should I take into account? PD: I never travelled before.

As suggested by the name and explained a bit by the issue, some Delta Chat devs want to add .tgs format, based on Lottie, as option (and could be main format by now) for stickers pack and this is where they are starting. The format was added recently in a Delta Chat fork called DeltaLab (https://github.com/adbenitez/deltachat-android). I had a little private discussion with the author about his proposition to influence Delta Chat devs for using it. Lottie has a closed specification as far I saw but some libre tools are provided by default to support it. The format is also not-standard and not implemented over everything. I proposed SVG/SVGz as an alternative, given some work made in https://gitlab.com/mattia.basaglia/python-lottie/ but animations on SVG/SVGz as output are not finished, in private discussion with the DeltaLab's author but after denying SVG without checking possibility of what he wanted for cubans, small size stickers comparable to Lottie, he didn't reply to that proposition. I write this post because I am worried about the situation on Delta Chat. It is not that I want .tgs and Lottie compatibility to be denied, is that I want to ensure that this will be in order to add other capability over a fully standard compliance sticker implementation, with low size given what SVG is and SVGz, that could finish in a conversion from .tgs.
