<ng0>if I could, I would file a bug on this, but I can't send emails because of this temporarily, so I'll just say here that I hope that updating torsocks to the latest stable will fix this: WARNING torsocks: [syscall] Unsupported syscall number 202. Denying the call (in tsocks_syscall() at syscall.c:165)
<ng0>on top of that I'd just create patches for the non-free components of firefox .. and we'll see if it makes the browser more unique in fingerprint or if there is no difference
<bavier`>I'm assuming torproject has tests for such things already?
<ng0>there's this fingerprinting service website.. can pass it to you in a moment, need to communicate something else
<ng0>this website is continously tested and updated with new tests, as mentioned on one of the torproject lists. not associated with torprojected, but a good testing tool: https://panopticlick.eff.org/
<efraim>i bet we could also move w3m, links, lynx and dillo to webbrowser.scm
<ng0>probably time could be saved by tracking gentoo or some other distros patches.. or starting off as a base for own patches. firefox bundles many things
<ng0>or maybe not. but patches need to be included for sure.
<ng0>yeah... i don't know if anyone of us wants to sign up at chromium.org for api key , and I see google as something we can leave out of firefox. the api key is needed for the location services in firefox.
<efraim>also if we ever get around to packaging chromium we might also need our own API keys
<ng0>yes.. but for now, and for just a wip, I won't touch google.
<ng0>if it's indeed necessary, I'll find out that way.
<ng0>I'm just writing down the how to, thread to follow. I think we can use browser/branding/official now.. if I am not wrong this is what debian does too
<ng0>at least for gentoo it is: if use bindist; then (here come things related to branding/aurora) else (Here are things related to branding/official) .
<rekado>flashing with libreboot didn’t work today. The experimental flasher didn’t quite work right.
<ng0>ACTION strikes the last questions. safety is a workaround of a branding which is not official. the trademark still applies to official branding and distribution of binaries containing such
<ng0>wip is 300 lines now. I could've inherited icecat, but this needs to be extra, for keeping a version around where we can pin torbrowser to, and more up to date firefox'
<wingo>i was about to carp about missing debug packages, but it turns out you can just install them :)
<ng0>on debug... firefox with debug+debug-symbols: 8G. without: 4G. my decision is to build without, and I think it would be friendly to current hydra disk space. building with will be possible once there's enough space or another method to distribute (8G shouldn't be that much then, it's just the time needed to compile)
<wingo>anyone able to get backtraces from core dumps?
<wingo>i installed guile:debug, glibc:debug, and libgc:debug
