I am new but not brand new to Linux and OpenSource. I do like to explore all resources before making decisions so I will ask my question here in hopes of gaining some insight.
I am in search for the best option for a DIY security camera NVR software or perhaps an Operating System designed with that in mind. I would like to hear from people who have experience based knowledge.

LXer: Automatically decrypt your disk using TPM2

Linux Questions - Thu, 02/02/2023 - 02:06
Published at LXer:

Entering the passphrase to decrypt the disk at boot can become quite tedious. On modern systems a secure hardware chip called "TPM" (Trusted Platform Module) can store a secret to automatically decrypt your LUKS partitions.

Running out of space in Mint 20.2

Linux Questions - Thu, 02/02/2023 - 01:47
In my Mint 20.2 desktop I am low on space, memory. It looks like Timeshift for some reason is using 74GB of memory? Can I free this?

Also in Gparted I created space to the left of my Mint install, so 56 GB. I don't know how to expand my Linux partition into it. I tried G parted and Mint disk manger.

To the far left of my memory is Windows 10, they I little use and shrank down with Gparted.

Now the client

Code: 192.168.1.2:/mnt/2TB/octoprint/uploads on /mnt/octoprint/uploads type nfs4 (rw,relatime,vers=4.2,rsize=1048576,wsize=1048576,namlen=255,soft,proto=tcp,timeo=600,retrans=2,sec=sys,clientaddr=192.168.1.150,local_lock=none,addr=192.168.1.2)

So... Everything APPEARS to be connected.... yet when I try and access the mounted shared directory, I don't get any sort of error.... the system just hangs... cant ls the directory or anything.

I'm at a loss.... I don't know what the problem could be...
I've uninstalled and reinstalled nfs-kernel-server and nfs-common to no avail

I don't know where to go with further troubleshooting at this point.
Any ideas/suggestions are greatly appreciated.....

BTW... This WAS working at one point, then it just stopped... I didn't change anything.

it is only fedora and kali
ok so when I type in nmcli I get my dns configuration as:

servers: 192.168.0.1
domains: ht.home
interface: eth0

it should be
servers: 172.16.1.5 172.16.1.1

How can I change this?

Thank you!

Firefox-109 does not play all videos

Linux Questions - Wed, 02/01/2023 - 21:07
I am running the official Firefox-109.0 Binary. It has audio video on Youtube nicely (improved from ff99) but not all websites work any longer. Firefox-99 official Binary seems to work with all websites.

QUESTION: What changed in 109 that prevents these awful porn sites from displaying their ads and content in video streams?

The "player" on these look like youtube's but the format does this: HD, 720p, 230p, "", then after deleting all entries displays "Source Error". ff99 works ff109 does not.

I'm unsure if "the web sites" are out of date or I am? Is some firefox security improvement blocking (some ad engine) in these websites?

HISTORY:

SDL-1.2.15 didn't work for me - it "deletes real Xorg access" and replaces it with "aliases" and doesn't compile with any gcc not 4.7.4 not 10.2.0

SDL-1.2.0 compiles and works "ok" with ffmpeg-2.8. 1.2.0 is the last versions it was working also the last version before "Xorg is aliases" and both gcc-4.7.4 and gcc-10.2.0 both

I have proven by objdump SDL > 1.2.0 do NOT compile in Xorg support. they put in aliases and in the binary the aliases map to NULL - resulting in "freeze frame" (only first frame shown). Which is the result of "all the obtuse re-aliasing" (which is for cell phone + wayland not Xorg btw - they don't care if X works).

SDL2-2.24.0 with ffmpeg-5.1 compiled and installed: i think they are doing NOTHING. definitely mpeg doesn't work using "ffplay". IDK if Firefox-99 or Firefox-109 use these as libs or otherwise. I just IDK. due to aliasing. i think ffmpeg-5.1 works correctly and firefox doesn't say it requires SDL.

I DO HAVE: ICU-72.1, libevent-2.1.12, libvpx-1.12.0 or higher and many many other built pre-requirements (about all other) (well not doxygen junk), ciaro, svg, gtk+-3.24.34, gtk-4.6.7, some engines and icons enough to keep firefox from drag-and-crash dialogs. pulseaudio-16.0 works: alsa alone DOES NOT (pulse is required - alsa alone is no longer supported).

libwebp-1.3.0 i did not build. ? google. i'd be running google if they didn't block my server from downloading source i think. "replacement for JPEG GIF" (too many of those already - more likely obstruction for other platforms is real goal)

Node.js i did not build, but i think it's in ff and anyhow: once again google blocks my server from downloading it. nss-3.87 i didn't build i think ff-109 has it built-in, idk. there is some discussion forum on google about ipv6 and being blocked from download i've seen.

libnotify i don't have. My fav is Motif, there is nothing to notify don't try! (standardized window notifications is all motif can do, and it does them btw)

THAT'S ALL :) firefox doesn't share all the requirements online or in their source README that i can find (if they even know themselves?).

I don't know if the websites are too old or there is some lib that is kicking this "Source Error". I have no error message either. It says it's missing a decoder but ... that says nothing really. I really doubt it is ffmpeg-5.1 versus ffmpeg-5.1.2 that is my problem because THESE ARE OLD WEBSITES (i don't need a new HVEC encoding format to display an older website probably - so i don't blame ffmpeg?)

-------------------------------------

OFF TOPIC: Firefox-44 was THE LAST firefox where you could actually download source and build. (all newer REQUIRES you run suspicious 32bit binaries and allow who knows who root access to "download anything cargo" with root access. no way never. (501 usa gov funding award related). if the official bins don't work they are responsible ... so it's on them and they intentionally put themselves there. my build shows VIRTENV doesn't install in HOME: it's broken (even if i uninstall system wide py - which is awful). python uses root authority and builds while installing - it's a root faker. these things all "protect their jobs" i am sure. but they can have it. if i can't see all of the source upfront upon download: then any problem i have is their fault and i'll make sure they pay for it.

thanks for your patience :)
