As I update kernel configs for Linux-libre 5.10 it sort of feels like the pre-launch sequence for the space shuttle.

Do you do your computing on big iron like the IBM Z or LinuxONE mainframes? Linux-libre is there now. jxself.org/linux-libre/

Interesting that Trump & others want to complain about voting fraud when it comes to losing the Presidency but not when it comes to votes that are in their favor for the Senate, even though these are all being cast from the very same ballots.

Reading the news it seems somewhat paradoxical that the government wants backdoors in encryption but not the kind that can be used against them. You can't have it both ways.

@selea As I look over the hardware the WiFi jumps out at me as requiring proprietary software. Is there more than that? If you own one of these there is an easy way to find out. 😀 If you try it I'd love to know.

GNU Linux-libre 5.9 is ready for amd64, arm64, armhf, i386, m68k, or1k, powerpc, ppc64, ppc64el, and riscv64 in my APT repository: jxself.org/linux-libre - Enjoy. The mirrors should sync over the next 24 hours.

@joeyh I was hoping that he might learn his lesson from this but it appears not.

Added another architecture to my Linux-libre APT repository at jxself.org/linux-libre/ - The Motorola 68000 series (68020 or later; an MMU is required.)

A friend of mine had been saying they wanted this for a while. This brings the number of supported architectures up to either 10 or 11, depending on how you count. What next?

Happy GNUiversary!

This is really rude of you Corona chan, our country too deserves a "thank you" from you.

Got my flu shot. Doing my part for herd immunity.

@qorg11@social.snopyta.org I have not tried. If you'd like to try it please let me know what happens.

I just realized that my APT repository for Linux-libre is 9 years old this month.

I was reading how an asteroid will come close by the planet on election day. It's so Trump can hitch a ride and go back home?

Ah ha; the moment has arrived. The uncompressed kernel source code for 5.9 has reached 1GB.

@railmeat They have redesigned their "open source" website. Now it talks about how much they "embrace" it which, considering this below seem quite honest of them now to reveal their true intentions. :)
