To resurrect useful, pleasant on the eye;
cp /etc/rsyslog.conf /etc/_rsyslog.conf
vi /etc/rsyslog.conf

  news.none;mail.none         -/var/log/debug
  mail,news.none              -/var/log/messages

goes in at the bottom above emergencies.
/etc/init.d/rsyslogd stop
/etc/init.d/rsyslogd start
It works.

I installed netinstall (iso Dec 19 2022, kernel bump from Dec 12 2022 iso,) Daedalus, network down/off.
I didn't install standard system utilities.
After 'select and install software' I, alt f2, chroot /target
dpkg -P firmware-atheros firmware-linux-free
add noatime to etc/fstab
mount a storage device, do my own firmware ath10k i915
dpkg -i

Booted OS and no /var/log/messages.
ifconfig hw ether MAC
ifup wlan0, apt-get update, apt-get upgrade, installed some programs, incuding rsync.
Screenshot of ls -m /usr/share/doc is at,
andyp67 dot co dot uk forward slash _SS0.PNG

I am dubious and wonder if this is a not small Debian/Devuan problem.
How many uses are their for tail -f /var/log/messages
see if the storage device you plug in is any good for a start.

Noise in digital imagery is a black art what with cameras are hardware software same thing.
I don't think we will get some degree of perfection (colour balance,) until at least 2050, this will be an evolution when the eye brain basically unable to date a picture, like the power of monochrome.
another factor is the quality of light, the software optimises enhances, another generation of noise.
As the Greeks like to say, shit food, shit weather, welcome to Britain.
καλός ώρες. (welcome, informal.)

When I want to contrast/brightness
Lighten say X percent, brightness X percent with contrast half X percent, and darken visa versa.
ffmpeg luma burn is supreme ultimate superior end of story IMO
so say I want to lighten 2% it's ffmpeg -vf lutyuv=y=1.02*val
A friend of mine from school been a wedding photographer forever, he shoots RAW and plus a third.
I shoot normal and luma burn two percent pretty much always.
Equipment is getting better, I don't need to plus one percent red in ffmpeg with what I got now Lumix FT7 Lumix G100 Coolpix A1000, I prefer ffmpeg red/cyan blue/yellow to rgb anyday.
The Lumix FT7 pictures could be better, but it's armoured, usb charge, 4K, viewfinder.
My FT4 eventually got trashed out there on the street, and the FT20 didn't last long at all, armoured lite.
The only criticism I got of ffmpeg is unsharp mask is a bit crap, imagemagick is fine, I think Pixlr is based on imagemagick, most of my shots get sharpen 12%, or 15% if it's telephoto, then again equipment is getting better, bit like back in the darkroom, grade 2 paper is normal but for press it's generally grade 3. Or grade 2 and a stronger developer chemical. Anyway, multigrade came around.
I'm not 108 years old, honest!
If I'm moving too fast I'm using what equipment is strapped to my body.
FFmpeg4android is 8MB not installed 23.44MB installed, and Pixlr 2.6.0.
I shoot JPG and convert to PNG in ffmpeg.
Occasionally in a decent interweb cafe I can install artweaver dot de, if I need to do something special.
Jackpal terminal emulator in Android is very flipping handy to tar -cvf -xvf.
Putting a date on the back of a print is important as going in a newspaper and sat across the desk of the duty picture editor, no date, a reach across the desk and slap across the face is acceptable!
I NEVER have ANY files on a network up Android without a tiny program CryptIt 1.4 dhanoopbhaskar (blowfish.)
And QuickPic 4.5.2 is my kit.
apk20 & apkpure & apk4fun are the best.

Devarch I like your words, I need to take some time and think about them.

#6 Re: Off-topic » Share your photography! » 2022-12-18 21:24:41

I don't fully understand the artifacts noise at super distances, you don't get it super telephoto closer.
Your through the trees shot is most excellent, all photography is abstract, that beautiful light and colour is not in Yorkshire today!
PK00591.PNG is my panther when he was a few months old, he's definately got some lynx in his DNA.
That was shot at 1248mm on a compact sensor.

Leonard Freed was a great photographer, and the late Abbas Attar, who was a colleague of mine circa Bosnia time. Abbas best known for for his documents revolution Iran 1979.
Now fake imagery is a problem so great I cannot think of a word.
I was in a branch office with Julio Etchart one time, he was one of my two bosses at the time, I never forget him saying "photography is/was a 20th century phenomena."
The photograph by Alexander Gardner on the battlefield with Abraham Lincoln & Pinkerton & McClernand is out of sight.

#10 Re: Off-topic » Share your photography! » 2022-12-18 19:31:38

Thank you to somebody for moving this off another post and generating this Share your photography! post.
aluma, thank you for putting a huge smile on my face, you are quite correct, there is something wrong with the photo! artefact noise
The above image is a small fraction of the photo, somebody please help and put the full image up if it is to be up on dev1galaxy, I don't know how to do that.
My image is free for all.
Now for whats wrong with it!
The camera is 16MP and the digital crop makes it 13.33MP.
It's a tiny compact sensor, the shooting distance and super telephoto, so the result has these kind of inherent limitations, noise, artefacts.
Of course I only put up a 5MP on my website because of all these thieving government corporations stealing everybodys intellectual property.
The image should be viewed from a distance.
It's the impression.

I see there are some Avatar fans on the forum, perhaps Annihilation 2018 fans also.
I took a rather amazing photograph this year.
March Haigh (Marsden, Yorkshire. U.K.,) from Deer Hill.
Approximately 3.9 miles.
Nikon Coolpix A1000, 1.2X digital zoom, 1008mm.
The picture is not fake, simply auto-levels/normalisation and 15% unsharp mask in Pixlr.
The light is always changing, the colour is true. The purple is heather.

Thank you.

Super fsmithred thank you.
I will check it out asap.
Right now I'm on a telephone, my laptop is creating a snapshot, and about to make my third and last coffee of the day, I had a bottle of Greek wine yesterday evening, that's one and a half kilos.

#15 Re: Devuan » Hardening Linux, minimal, to ultra. » 2022-12-18 12:47:45

Why don't I have /var/log/messages anymore,
not because I have noatime in fstab, and rsync installed.
I hope it's not a new feature.
tail -f /var/log/messages is handy.
I have a minimal console install, I'm being extremely careful, I havn't broken anything, I do that in a RefractaSS.

#16 Re: Devuan » Hardening Linux, minimal, to ultra. » 2022-12-18 12:38:03

I'm sceptical on the firmware, oxymoron comes to mind.
By the way, greek verb, skeptome - I think.

#17 Re: Devuan » Hardening Linux, minimal, to ultra. » 2022-12-18 12:34:25

I'd really like to try submarine linux, i.e., never turn the thing off, reboot.
I feel like I havn't got the time, I'm getting older, living in western lands bullshit lifestyle, and I need to be frugal and not spend any money on another box because my sister is getting divorced and I want to help her with money.
I wonder how much learning zero downtime computing is, I wish I had a mini HOWTO.

#18 Re: Devuan » Hardening Linux, minimal, to ultra. » 2022-12-18 12:21:21

Thank you for your info on libreSSL, which I learned a little about browsing these days.

I have Daedalus on my Asus E203N laptop.
Today I did apt-get install linux-image-amd64.
Today I've learned apt-mark hold to prevent firmware-linux-free being installed.
I am inclined to think this is WRONG.

#19 Re: Devuan » Hardening Linux, minimal, to ultra. » 2022-12-16 22:03:57

We go libssl1.1 to libssl3
can openssl be tinkered with and improved

#21 Re: Devuan » Hardening Linux, minimal, to ultra. » 2022-12-16 21:37:45

I will logout of this small piece of crap telephone and login to my Asus E203N cos it's morning elsewhere in the world.
Come on folks, Hardening Linux.

#22 Re: Devuan » Hardening Linux, minimal, to ultra. » 2022-12-16 21:26:54

I boot with Roderick 'Refind' Smith into lets hope fsmithred is Frederick 'Refracta' Smith!

#23 Re: Devuan » Hardening Linux, minimal, to ultra. » 2022-12-16 21:04:53

I'm really pleased with this progress.
A newbie probably wouldn't be able to hunt for that edit line 148.
Installing Devuan and Refracta fail would be disappointing.
Now I know that Refracta is brought to us by fsmithred, I must take this opportunity to say, on behalf of the planet, an ULTRA MASSIVE THANKYOU for a COLOSSALLY WONDERFUL gift, which is not difficult to use.
Easy making a personal boot=live toram is not unlike seeing a photographic image appearing in the developer.
Invaluable is not an adequate word.
Of course Refracta is not made by magic, but by hard work.

#24 Re: Devuan » Hardening Linux, minimal, to ultra. » 2022-12-16 19:53:36

thank you very much fsmithred
The other day I did find the fix in git
As I wrote above, I did the simple edit to line 148
maybe there was something on forums dot debian dot net, about this

#25 Re: Devuan » Hardening Linux, minimal, to ultra. » 2022-12-16 19:20:31

Correction, installing refractasnapshot-base and dependencies catastrophically fails.
