mak closed T710: Support UEFI in PureOS as Resolved.

This is resolved now - please test the images available on https://downloads.pureos.net/byzantium/ (preferably the latest ones built ^^) as I could only test this on a few systems and configurations that I had available. The images should support UEFI, as long as secure boot is not enforced, as the necessary pieces are not signed.

mak added a comment to T724: PureOS is too stable when auto-migrating only from Debian testing.

Just FTR, we can't binary-sync anything from experimental, ever. Packages there are built with other binaries from experimental, which would break any suite we sync them into. Source syncs can work though, but will need support implemented in Synchrontron in Laniakea.

mak added a comment to T1075: lintian: relax email address requirement in Change-by check.

To me, this Lintian check actually makes little sense. The one for Maintainer is important, so the maintenance status is reflected in the modified package, but Changed-by could be any address. When Zlatan and I created the project, the initial goal was explicitly to get the community involved and have people outside of Purism contribute. That didn't really work out, but by limiting change authors to people with an @puri.sm address we make this even less likely and also make the project look a lot more like a Purism inside job than is good for it ;-)

mak closed T1077: Please sync https://repo.pureos.net/pureos/dists/byzantium-security/ from bullseye-security as Resolved.

This was a bit tricky, as byzantium is still an in-development release and all changes should go through landing. Fortunately though, the synchrotron Laniakea module is flexible enough nowadays to accommodate for that.
I've implemented a solution which will fill up the -updates and -security suites directly for byzantium from the respective bullseye suites, while not allowing manual uploads from us which should still go through landing. That workflow should work well for byzantiums current odd in-between state between "released" and "in-development".

mak added a comment to T873: archive: need a way to have -dbgsym packages.

We could probably have debug symbols packages for our self-built packages with a bit more space (the dbgsym packages are *insanely* huge, they dwarf the size of the actual archive), but for the full archive, so syncing the debug symbols from Debian to make them available easily in PureOS, we'd need quite a lot of space (I need to look at Debian to actually give a - then very good - estimate).
At time, PureOS holds dbgsym packages for everything that we have built in the landing suite, but byzantium doesn't have own debug symbols. You can however use the ones from landing, which are either equal to the versions in byzantium, or newer.

mak closed T987: Resource temporarily unavailable [IP: 138.201.228.45 443] (notorious https) as Resolved.

So, that RST packet is indeed the issue, and there's a high chance that either APT or GnuTLS don't handle this correctly. I talked with an APT developer, and we may actually need to debug this further in future.
In the meanwhile though, the issue can be mitigated by throwing an Apache2 webserver in front as proxy, instead of Nginx.

mak added a comment to T987: Resource temporarily unavailable [IP: 138.201.228.45 443] (notorious https).

Some new observations:

  • This is not a proxy server issue: Even without proxy, the issue occurs
  • The TLS version doesn't matter at all
  • Before the issue occurs, we get quite a few TCP retransmissions from the client to the server, and then the current connection is dropped:
  • There is nothing suspicious in the Nginx logs, not even at info priority. A quick glance at the debug logs also didn't show anything interesting, but those are massive and it's possible that I missed something.

No, disabling the timers is completely the wrong approach. The service belonging to the timer unit has built-in logic to do only what it was configured to do + some cleanup work that we always want to have done.
All you need to do to disable upgrades is to disable them in GNOME Software as well as in software-sources-gtk which is available in GNOME Software's burger-menu as well.
See the attached picture:

mak changed the status of T978: Confirm whether "Software & Upgrades" portion of GNOME Software can control unattended-upgrades settings from Open to Incomplete.

Why? We want the users to stay secure by default, and disabling automatic upgrades is the opposite of that. So I think disabling updates is a huge disservice and definitely not beginner-friendly. Users who want to disable autoupdates can always do that via the respective GUI (software-properties-gtk).

That depends on how the suite is set up and where it gets its overrides from - the phone suites do not share overrides with the main amber suite, so everything goes through NEW once (but that also means the changing overrides for the phone suite is easier and there is less room for error and it impacting one of the main suites).

mak closed T787: Update to Calamares 3.2.11 as Resolved.

This has been updated a few days already, but the new images weren't fully tested yet (so aren't on the pureos.net page for download by default). That should happen this week.
Thanks for the heads up though!

mak added a comment to T57: [multiple issues] chromium.

@mak Please stop block chromium - it does not contain non-free code and is no longer unclear about licensing.

mak added a comment to T193: software not showing linphone.

See https://software.pureos.net/sw/linphone.desktop
(there is still a warning that the icon is upscaled, which could be fixed in the packaging)
