Getting the One Mix Yoga to work with FreeBSD...

First booting it requires this bit set at boot. During install you will need to enter it at the loader prompt.

hint.uart.0.disabled="1"
hint.uart.1.disabled="1"

Then when finishing the install you will want to add that to '/boot/loader.conf' before exiting and rebooting.

if_iwm_load="YES"
iwm7265Dfw_load="YES"
ums_load="YES"
chvgpio_load="YES"
coretemp_load="YES"

That all is also handy to add as well. The mouse will load up as a UHID device otherwise once devd starts if you let it. Also as / is not mounted yet, unless you load the FW now, the kernel won't be able to load it automatically. The last two are optional.

Just do your standard X stuff and then change the driver to this...

Section "Device" Identifier "Card0"
Driver "scfb"
Option "Rotate" "cw"
Option "NoAccel" "True"
EndSection

The framebuffer driver actually works rather well. Although it will load up corrupt every other time, so you may need to kill X if you restart it.

Sadly FreeBSD as no equivalent of fbcon=rotate:1 .

On the todo list for my weekend, leather work. Need to put together a belt pouch for my One Mix Yoga. Looking forward to having a small portable unix box again. It is what I missed about my old N900. Although I like that this one is FreeBSD... sadly not as small as the N900 and has no cell connectivity.

ack! Just noticed https://goatdaddy.net/ was working but not http://goatdaddy.net/ thanks to htaccess erroring on that thanks to the virtual dir for PHP-FPM not being ignored in the htaccess. Forgot it requires a different instance of that for HTTP and HTTPS and had it only ignoring one of them.

Been reconning my new One Mix Yoga via Xubuntu 18.04 for getting FreeBSD on it. One thing has really stood out to me and that is how fucking little software is available in Ubuntu.

Also was Pocket Pussy already taken for a release name?

Watching people try to defend WebUSB is painful and cringe worthy.

On a similar note it is curious to watch people deny the massive holes in the GDPR.

Red Shell Spyware

Been interesting to look at how the mods on various subreddits have been burying it. On the popular gaming subreddits there are no pinned posts about it, despite the level of scandal, notability, and the like of it.

interesting...

https://github.com/git-federation/gitpub

Started following that a bit.

Interesting idea and I like the basic idea. Although if that group produces anything, I'll be surprised.

What started out as federated pull requests has devolved into attempting to build a federated ticketing system by a group of people who are paranoid as fuck to the point of being crippled by it and clearly don't have much experience working with ticketing systems.

The Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security have said they need more power to stop drone threats to government facilities. A new bill in Congress gives them too much.

Woot! Gallery updated...

Finally got around to re-rendering it.

Also pondering Toader2 and what I've learned from writing the original one. It and the ZConf stuff are something I've really run out of energy to work on. Both have major issues that need fixing. ZConf though was definitely a interesting experiment even though I never had the chance to push it to its full potential.

Pondering basing the a new one around Text::MultiMarkdown and making it more sorta Githubish.

Some thoughts on Microsft buying Github...

I am less than worried.

The major company to worry about that constantly gets a pass is Google. On top of that when it comes to companies shit for open source I'll throw Red Hat in there as well. Both of them have done more to seriously fuck the open source community in the last decade than Microsoft has...

Wayland, systemd, constant use of embrace and extend, the fuckery that is Android, killing XMPP, killing CalDAV, and a whole host of other issues...

Some initial thoughts on Friendica v. Mastodon...

CPU usage between the two seems to favor Mastodon, but not notably. Likely could get that to drop a bit if I tweak PHP-FPM a bit. The only real draw back I see is the requirement for MySQL(wtf) or one one of its drop ins. No PostgreSQL support.

That said dealing with Mastodon, node, and Ruby really made me appreciate PHP.

And contacts now migrated...

Wooha! I've now completed adding the various contacts from mastodon to this post pulling that info out of PostgreSQL.

W00t! Trying something new...

Trying out Friendica as I've gotten tired of dealing with the fuckery that is keeping Ruby happy in terms of Mastodon.

PHP, Ruby, and Python all very much make me appreciate Perl. Especially with how much more portable it is than those three unless you are doing something extremely OS specific.
