Jonathan McDowell: Hacking and Bricking the EE Opsrey 2 Mini

I ve mentioned in the past my twisted EE network setup from when I moved in to my current house. The 4GEE WiFi Mini (also known as the EE Osprey 2 Mini or the EE40VB, and actually a rebadged Alcatel Y853VB) has been sitting unused since then, so I figured I d see about trying to get a shell on it. TL;DR: Of course it s running Linux, there s a couple of test points internally which bring out the serial console, but after finding those and logging in I discovered it s running ADB on port 5555 quite happily available without authentication both via wifi and the USB port. So if you have physical or local network access, instant root shell. Well done, folks. And then I bricked it before I could do anything more interesting. There s a lack of information about this device out there - most of the links I can find are around removing the SIM lock - so I thought I d document the pieces I found just in case anyone else is trying to figure it out. It s based around a Qualcomm MDM9607 SoC, paired with 64M RAM and 256M NAND flash. Wifi is via an RTL8192ES. Kernel is 3.18.20. Busybox is v1.23.1. It s running dnsmasq but I didn t grab the version. Of course there s no source or offer of source provided. Taking it apart is fairly easy. There s a single screw to remove, just beside the SIM slot. The coloured rim can then be carefully pried away from the back, revealing the battery. There are then 4 screws in the corners which need removed in order to be able to lift out the actual PCB and gain access to the serial console test points. EE40VB PCB serial console test points My mistake was going poking around trying to figure out where the updates are downloaded from - I know I m running a slightly older release than what s current, and the device can do an automatic download + update. Top tip; don t run Jrdrecovery. It ll error on finding /cache/update.zip and wipe the main partition anyway. That ll leave you in a boot loop where the device boots the recovery partition which tries to install /cache/update.zip which of course still doesn t exist. So. Where next? First, I need to get the device into a state where I can actually do something other than watch it boot into recovery, fail to flash and reboot. Best guess at present is to try and get it to enter the Qualcomm EDL (Emergency Download) mode. That might be possible with a custom USB cable that grounds D+ on boot. Alternatively I need to probe some of the other test points on the PCB and see if grounding any of those helps enter EDL mode. I then need a suitable firehose OEM-signed programmer image. And then I need to actually get hold of a proper EE40VB firmware image, either via one of the OTA update files or possibly via an Alcatel ADSU image (though no idea how to get hold of one, other than by posting to a random GSM device forum and hoping for the kindness of strangers). More updates if/when I make progress

Jo Shields: Mono repository changes, beginning Mono vNext

Up to now, Linux packages on mono-project.com have come in two flavours RPM built for CentOS 7 (and RHEL 7), and .deb built for Debian 7. Universal packages that work on the named distributions, and anything newer. Except that s not entirely true. Firstly, there have been compatibility repositories users need to add, to deal with ABI changes in libtiff, libjpeg, and Apache, since Debian 7. Then there s the packages for ARM64 and PPC64el neither of those architectures is available in Debian 7, so they re published in the 7 repo but actually built on 8. A large reason for this is difficulty in our package publishing pipeline apt only allows one version-architecture mix in the repository at once, so I can t have, say, 4.8.0.520-0xamarin1 built on AMD64 on both Debian 7 and Ubuntu 16.04. We ve been working hard on a new package build/publish pipeline, which can properly support multiple distributions, based on Jenkins Pipeline. This new packaging system also resolves longstanding issues such as can t really build anything except Mono and Architecture: All packages still get built on Jo s laptop, with no public build logs So, here s the old build matrix:
Distribution Architectures
Debian 7 ARM hard float, ARM soft float, ARM64 (actually Debian 8), AMD64, i386, PPC64el (actually Debian 8)
CentOS 7 AMD64
And here s the new one:
Distribution Architectures
Debian 7 ARM hard float (v7), ARM soft float, AMD64, i386
Debian 8 ARM hard float (v7), ARM soft float, ARM64, AMD64, i386, PPC64el
Raspbian 8 ARM hard float (v6)
Ubuntu 14.04 ARM hard float (v7), ARM64, AMD64, i386, PPC64el
Ubuntu 16.04 ARM hard float (v7), ARM64, AMD64, i386, PPC64el
CentOS 6 AMD64, i386
CentOS 7 AMD64
The compatibility repositories will no longer be needed on recent Ubuntu or Debian just use the right repository for your system. If your distribution isn t listed sorry, but we need to draw a line somewhere on support, and the distributions listed here are based on heavy analysis of our web server logs and bug requests. You ll want to change your package manager repositories to reflect your system more accurately, once Mono vNext is published. We re debating some kind of automated handling of this, but I m loathe to touch users sources.list without their knowledge. CentOS builds are going to be late I ve been doing all my prototyping against the Debian builds, as I have better command of the tooling. Hopefully no worse than a week or two. edit I guess Ubuntu 12.04 is coming back too, despite being EOL, for TravisCI support.

Jo Shields: A quick introduction to Flatpak

Releasing ISV applications on Linux is often hard. The ABI of all the libraries you need changes seemingly weekly. Hence you have the option of bundling the world, or building a thousand releases to cover a thousand distribution versions. As a case in point, when MonoDevelop started bundling a C Git library instead of using a C# git implementation, it gained dependencies on all sorts of fairly weak ABI libraries whose exact ABI mix was not consistent across any given pair of distro releases. This broke our policy of releasing works on anything .deb and .rpm packages. As a result, I pretty much gave up on packaging MonoDevelop upstream with version 5.10. Around the 6.1 release window, I decided to take re-evaluate question. I took a closer look at some of the fancy-pants new distribution methods that get a lot of coverage in the Linux press: Snap, AppImage, and Flatpak. I started with AppImage. It s very good and appealing for its specialist areas (no external requirements for end users), but it s kinda useless at solving some of our big areas (the ABI-vs-bundling problem, updating in general). Next, I looked at Flatpak (once xdg-app). I liked the concept a whole lot. There s a simple 3-tier dependency hierarchy: Applications, Runtimes, and Extensions. An application depends on exactly one runtime. Runtimes are root-level images with no dependencies of their own. Extensions are optional add-ons for applications. Anything not provided in your target runtime, you bundle. And an integrated updates mechanism allows for multiple branches and multiple releases parallel-installed (e.g. alpha & stable, easily switched). There s also security-related sandboxing features, but my main concerns on a first examination were with the dependency and distribution questions. That said, some users might be happier running Microsoft software on their Linux desktop if that software is locked up inside a sandbox, so I ve decided to embrace that functionality rather than seek to avoid it. I basically stopped looking at this point (sorry Snap!). Flatpak provided me with all the functionality I wanted, with an extremely helpful and responsive upstream. I got to work on trying to package up MonoDevelop. Flatpak (optionally!) uses a JSON manifest for building stuff. Because Mono is still largely stuck in a Gtk+2 world, I opted for the simplest runtime, org.freedesktop.Runtime, and bundled stuff like Gtk+ into the application itself. Some gentle patching here & there resulted in this repository. Every time I came up with an exciting new edge case, upstream would suggest a workaround within hours or failing that, added new features to Flatpak just to support my needs (e.g. allowing /dev/kvm to optionally pass through the sandbox). The end result is, as of the upcoming 0.8.0 release of Flatpak, from a clean install of the flatpak package to having a working MonoDevelop is a single command: flatpak install --user --from https://download.mono-project.com/repo/monodevelop.flatpakref For the current 0.6.x versions of Flatpak, the user also needs to flatpak remote-add --user --from gnome https://sdk.gnome.org/gnome.flatpakrepo first this step will be automated in 0.8.0. This will download org.freedesktop.Runtime, then com.xamarin.MonoDevelop; export icons n stuff into your user environment so you can just click to start. There s some lingering experience issues due the sandbox which are on my radar. Run on external console doesn t work, for example, or open containing folder . There are people working on that (a missing DBus# feature to allow breaking out of the sandbox). But overall, I m pretty happy. I won t be entirely satisfied until I have something approximating feature equivalence to the old .debs. I don t think that will ever quite be there, since there s just no rational way to allow arbitrary /usr stuff into the sandbox, but it should provide a decent basis for a QA-able, supportable Linux MonoDevelop. And we can use this work as a starting point for any further fancy features on Linux. Gtk# app development in Flatpak MonoDevelop Editing MonoDevelop in MonoDevelop. *Inception noise*

Lunar: Reproducible builds: week 5 in Stretch cycle

What happened about the reproducible builds effort for this week: Toolchain fixes Uploads that should help other packages: Patch submitted for toolchain issues: Some discussions have been started in Debian and with upstream: Packages fixed The following 8 packages became reproducible due to changes in their build dependencies: access-modifier-checker, apache-log4j2, jenkins-xstream, libsdl-perl, maven-shared-incremental, ruby-pygments.rb, ruby-wikicloth, uimaj. The following packages became reproducible after getting fixed: Some uploads fixed some reproducibility issues but not all of them: Patches submitted which did not make their way to the archive yet: Discussions that have been started: reproducible.debian.net Holger Levsen added two new package sets: pkg-javascript-devel and pkg-php-pear. The list of packages with and without notes are now sorted by age of the latest build. Mattia Rizzolo added support for email notifications so that maintainers can be warned when a package becomes unreproducible. Please ask Mattia or Holger or in the #debian-reproducible IRC channel if you want to be notified for your packages! strip-nondeterminism development Andrew Ayer fixed the gzip handler so that it skip adding a predetermined timestamp when there was none. Documentation update Lunar added documentation about mtimes of file extracted using unzip being timezone dependent. He also wrote a short example on how to test reproducibility. Stephen Kitt updated the documentation about timestamps in PE binaries. Documentation and scripts to perform weekly reports were published by Lunar. Package reviews 50 obsolete reviews have been removed, 51 added and 29 updated this week. Thanks Chris West and Mathieu Bridon amongst others. New identified issues: Misc. Lunar will be talking (in French) about reproducible builds at Pas Sage en Seine on June 19th, at 15:00 in Paris. Meeting will happen this Wednesday, 19:00 UTC.

Lunar: Reproducible builds: week 7 in Stretch cycle

What happened about the reproducible builds effort for this week: Presentations On June 7th, Reiner Herrmann presented the project at the Gulaschprogrammiernacht 15 in Karlsruhe, Germany. Video and audio recordings in German are available, and so are the slides in English. Toolchain fixes Daniel Kahn Gillmor's report on help2man started a discussion with Brendan O'Dea and Ximin Luo about standardizing a common environment variable that would provide a replacement for an embedded build date. After various proposals and research by Ximin about date handling in several programming languages, the best solution seems to define SOURCE_DATE_EPOCH with a value suitable for gmtime(3).
  1. Martin Borgert wondered if Sphinx could be changed in a way that would avoid having to tweak debian/rules in packages using it to produce HTML documentation.
Daniel Kahn Gillmor opened a new report about icont producing unreproducible binaries. Packages fixed The following 32 packages became reproducible due to changes in their build dependencies: agda, alex, c2hs, clutter-1.0, colorediffs-extension, cpphs, darcs-monitor, dispmua, haskell-curl, haskell-glfw, haskell-glib, haskell-gluraw, haskell-glut, haskell-gnutls, haskell-gsasl, haskell-hfuse, haskell-hledger-interest, haskell-hslua, haskell-hsqml, haskell-hssyck, haskell-libxml-sax, haskell-openglraw, haskell-readline, haskell-terminfo, haskell-x11, jarjar-maven-plugin, kxml2, libcgi-struct-xs-perl, libobject-id-perl, maven-docck-plugin, parboiled, pegdown. The following packages became reproducible after getting fixed: Some uploads fixed some reproducibility issues but not all of them: Patches submitted which did not make their way to the archive yet: reproducible.debian.net A new variation to better notice when a package captures the environment has been introduced. (h01ger) The test on Debian packages works by building the package twice in a short time frame. But sometimes, a mirror push can happen between the first and the second build, resulting in a package built in a different build environment. This situation is now properly detected and will run a third build automatically. (h01ger) OpenWrt, the distribution specialized in embedded devices like small routers, is now being tested for reproducibility. The situation looks very good for their packages which seems mostly affected by timestamps in the tarball. System images will require more work on debbindiff to be better understood. (h01ger) debbindiff development Reiner Herrmann added support for decompling Java .class file and .ipk package files (used by OpenWrt). This is now available in version 22 released on 2015-06-14. Documentation update Stephen Kitt documented the new --insert-timestamp available since binutils-mingw-w64 version 6.2 available to insert a ready-made date in PE binaries built with mingw-w64. Package reviews 195 obsolete reviews have been removed, 65 added and 126 updated this week. New identified issues: Misc. Holger Levsen reported an issue with the locales-all package that Provides: locales but is actually missing some of the files provided by locales. Coreboot upstream has been quick to react after the announcement of the tests set up the week before. Patrick Georgi has fixed all issues in a couple of days and all Coreboot images are now reproducible (without a payload). SeaBIOS is one of the most frequently used payload on PC hardware and can now be made reproducible too. Paul Kocialkowski wrote to the mailing list asking for help on getting U-Boot tested for reproducibility. Lunar had a chat with maintainers of Open Build Service to better understand the difference between their system and what we are doing for Debian.

Laura Arjona: Games

Nota: Este art culo, en espa ol, aqu . I m not a gamer, although probably I ve played with machines/computers more than most of the girls of my age. My path has been: handheld machine, Pong and tenis in my uncle s console, MSX (with that one, in addition to playing, I learnt what was an algorithm and a program, and I started to write small programs in Basic, and I copied and ran the source code of small games and programs to make graphics, which I found in MSX magazines). My parents considered that arcade machines in bars were like slot machines so they were banned for us (even pinball, only table soccer was saved from them, and only if my father was playing with us). In the MSX I played Magical Tree, Galaxians, Arkanoid, Konami s Sports Games, Spanish games from Dinamic, and some arcades like Golden Axe, Xenon, and maybe some more. The next computers (PC AT, later a 286) were not so for gaming; let s say that we played more with the printer (Harvard Graphics, Bannermania ). Later, I was interested in other things more than in computer games, and later there were highschool homework, dBase III, and later the University and programming again and more, and it was the end of gaming, computer was for office and Uni homework.
Later, it came the internet and since then, reading and writing and communicating was more interesting for me than playing. I was not good at playing, and if you are not good, you play less, and you don t get better, so you begin to find other ways to loose your time, or to win it :) The new generation My son is 6 years old now, and I m living with him a second adventure about games. Games have changed a lot, and the family computing try to stay in the libre software side whenever I am the one that can decide, so sometimes some challenges arise. Android (phone and tablet) The kid has played games in the phone and tablet with Android since he was a baby. We tried some of the last years popular games. I am not so keen of banning things, but I don t feel comfortable with the popular games for Android (advertisements, nonfree software, addictive elements, massive data recollection and possible surveillance ), so I try to control without being Cruella de Vil . Some techniques I use: On the other side, in my phone there is no Google Play, so we have been able to discover the section Games of F-Droid. We have tried (all of them available in F-Droid, emphasis in the ones that he liked best): 2048, AndroFish, Bomber, Coloring for Kids, Core, Dodge, Falling Blocks, Free Fall, Frozen Bubble, HeriSwap (this one in the tablet), Hex, HyperRogue, Meerkat Challenge, Memory, Pixel Dungeon, Robotfindskitten, Slow it!, Tux Memory, Tux Rider, Vector Pinball. Playing in my phone with CyanogenMod and having downloaded the games from F-Droid provides a relief similar to the one when playing a non-computer game. At least with the games that I have listed above. Maybe it is because they are simpler games, or they make me remember the ones that I played time ago. But it s also because of the peace of mind of knowing that they are libre software, that have been audited by the F-Droid community, that they don t abuse the user. The same happens with Debian, what takes me to the next part of this blogpost. Computer games: Debian The kid has learnt to play with the tablet and the phone before than with the computer, because our computers have no joysticks nor touchscreens. He learnt to use the touchpad before than the mouse, because it s easier and we have no mouse at home. He learnt to use the mouse at school, where they work with educative games via CD or via web, using Flash :( So Flash player appears and dissapears from my Debian setup depending on his willness to play with the school games . Until few time ago, in the computer we played with GCompris, ChildsPlay, and TuxPaint.
When he learnt to use the arrow keys, I installed Hannah and he liked a lot, specially when we learnt to do hannah -l 900 :) Later, in ClanTV there were advertisements about some online computer games about their favorite series, resulting in that they need Flash or a framework called Unity3D (no, it s not Ubuntu s Unity), and after digging a bit I decided that I was not going to install that #@%! in my Debian, so when he insisted in play those games, I booted the Windows 7 partition in his father s laptop and I installed it there. Windows is slow and sad in the computer, and those web games with that framework are not very light, so luckily they have not become very interesting. We have not played in the computer much more, maybe some incursion in Minetest, what takes me to the next section. (Not without stating my eternal thanks to the Games Team in Debian. I think they do a very important work and I think that next year I ll try to get involved in some way, because I know that the future of our family computer games is tied to libre games in Debian). PlayStation 3 and Minecraft Some time ago my husband bought a PlayStation 3 for home. The shop had discounts prices and so. He would play together with the kid an so.
The machine came home with some games for free (included in the price), but most of them were classified for +13 or so, so the only two left were Pro Evolution Soccer, and Minecraft.
I decided not to connect the machine to the network. Maybe we are loosing cool things, but I feel safer like that. So, no ethernet cable plugged, no registration in the Sony shop (or whatever its name is). The controllers are quite complex for the three of us. They are DualShock don t-know-what, and I think there is something (software) that makes the game adaptative to the person playing, because my husband is worse player after the son plays, if they play in turns and use the same controller. The kid liked Minecraft. I didn t know anything about that game (well, I knew that there was a libre clone called Minetest), so, for learning the basics I had a look at the wiki and searched videos about how to and we began learning. Now, the kid can read a bit so he needs less help, and he has watched a lot of videos about Minecraft, so he is interested in exploring and building. I had a look at Minetest, and I installed it in Debian. Having to use the keyboard is a disadvantage, and we didn t know how to dig, so it was not much attractive at first sight. I have looked a bit about how to use the PS3 controller in the computer, via USB, and it seems to work, but I suppose I need to write something to match each controller button with the corresponding key and subsequent action in Minetest. This is work, and I am lazy, and the boy seems not very interested in playing with the computer. Watching the videos we have infered that it s possible to download saved games and worlds to upload them in the videogame console. We have done some tests. I wanted to upload a saved game about an amusement park, but the file was in a folder of name NPEB01899* and even when the PS3 saw it to copy it from USB to the console, later it didn t appear in the list of saved games (our sved games were in folders named BLES01976). And renaming the folder didn t work, of course. I understood that we had met Sony s restrictions, so I searched for more info. The games are saved using an encryption key and you are not able to use saved games from consoles in other world zone or using a media different than ours (the game can be played using a disc or purchasing it in the digital shop, it seems). Very ugly all of this! I read somewhere that there is certain software (libre software, BTW) that allows to break the encryption and re-encrypt the saved game with the zone and type of media of your console, but it seems the program only works for Windows, and it needs a console ID that we have not, because we didn t register the console in the PlayStation network. All these things look shaky grounds for me, unpleasant stuff, I don t want to spend time on this, maybe I should learn a bit more about Minetest and make it work and interesting and tell Sony go fly a kite. Finally, I found a saved game in the same format as ours (BLES01976), it s not an amusement park but it is a world with interesting places to explore and many things already built, so I ve tried to import it and it worked, so my son will be happy for some time, I suppose. We have tried Minetest in the tablet too, but the touchscreen is not comfortable for this kind of games. I feel quite frustrated and angry about this issue of Sony s restrictions on saved games. So I suppose that in the next months I ll try to learn more about Minetest in Debian, game controllers in Debian, and games in Debian in general. So I hope to be able to offer cool stuff to my son, and he becomes more interested in playing in a safe environment which does not abuse the user. And with this, I finish Libre games in GNU/Linux, Debian, and info about games in internet When we have searched info about games in internet, I found that many times you need to go out from the secure environment: webpages with links to downloads that who knows if they contain what they say they contain, advertisements, videoblogs with a language not adequate for kids (or any person that loves their mother language) That s why I believe the path is to go into detail about libre games provided by the distro you use (Debian in my case). Here I bookmark a list of website with info that surely will be useful for me, to read in depth: We ll see how it goes. Comments? You can comment in this Pump.io thread.

Jo Shields: mono-project.com Linux packages, June 2015 edition

The latest stable release of Mono has happened, the first bugfix update to our 4.0 branch. Here are the release highlights, and some other goodies. Stable Packages This release covers Mono 4.0.1, and MonoDevelop 5.9. As promised last time, this includes builds for RPM-based x64 systems (CentOS 7 minimum), Debian-based x64, i386, ARMv5 Soft Float, and ARMv7 Hard Float systems (Debian 7/Ubuntu 12.04 minimum). Version numbering From now on, we re going to be clearer with our version numbering scheme. Historically, we ve shipped, say, 4.0.0 to the public internally, there have been a lot of builds on this target branch, all of which get an internal revision number. 4.0.0 as-shipped was in fact 4.0.0.143 internally that was the first 4.0.0 branch release approved of for stable release. This release is the first service release on the 4.0.0 branch, numbered 4.0.1.44 it ll be officially referred to as 4.0.1 in some places, but isn t the same as 4.0.1.0, which already released on Linux/Windows a while back, to include an emergency bugfix for those platforms. That was sorta a screwup really. Using the 4-part version removes the ambiguity, rather than having 44 different 4.0.1 s in existence. And we ll aim to be clearer in future about what is alpha, what is beta, and what is final (and what is a random emergency snapshot). Alpha Linux packages Want to see things earlier? We ve now got the structure in place to provide Linux packages (and source releases) to mirror what we do on Mac. When we upload a prospective package to our Mac customers, we will automatically trigger builds for Linux too. See http://www.mono-project.com/download/alpha/ Beta Linux packages See above. s/alpha/beta/. Weekly git Master snapshots We already have packages in place for every git commit, which parallel-install Mono into /opt. This is different. Weekly (or, right now, when I manually run the requisite Jenkins job), the latest Mac build of Mono git master from our internal CI system will be copied to a public location just for you, a source tarball generated, and packages built. See here for info on making use of that.

Lunar: Reproducible builds: first week in Stretch cycle

Debian Jessie has been released on April 25th, 2015. This has opened the Stretch development cycle. Reactions to the idea of making Debian build reproducibly have been pretty enthusiastic. As the pace is now likely to be even faster, let's see if we can keep everyone up-to-date on the developments. Before the release of Jessie The story goes back a long way but a formal announcement to the project has only been sent in February 2015. Since then, too much work has happened to make a complete report, but to give some highlights: Lunar did a pretty improvised lightning talk during the Mini-DebConf in Lyon. This past week It seems changes were pilling behind the curtains given the amount of activity that happened in just one week. Toolchain fixes We also rebased the experimental version of debhelper twice to merge the latest set of changes. Lunar submitted a patch to add a -creation-date to genisoimage. Reiner Herrmann opened #783938 to request making -notimestamp the default behavior for javadoc. Juan Picca submitted a patch to add a --use-date flag to texi2html.

The following packages became reproducible after getting fixed: Some uploads fixed some reproducibility issues but not all of them: Patches submitted which did not make their way to the archive yet: Improvements to reproducible.debian.net Mattia Rizzolo has been working on compressing logs using gzip to save disk space. The web server would uncompress them on-the-fly for clients which does not accept gzip content. Mattia Rizzolo worked on a new page listing various breakage: missing or bad debbindiff output, missing build logs, unavailable build dependencies. Holger Levsen added a new execution environment to run debbindiff using dependencies from testing. This is required for packages built with GHC as the compiler only understands interfaces built by the same version. debbindiff development Version 17 has been uploaded to unstable. It now supports comparing ISO9660 images, dictzip files and should compare identical files much faster. Documentation update Various small updates and fixes to the pages about PDF produced by LaTeX, DVI produced by LaTeX, static libraries, Javadoc, PE binaries, and Epydoc. Package reviews Known issues have been tagged when known to be deterministic as some might unfortunately not show up on every single build. For example, two new issues have been identified by building with one timezone in April and one in May. RD and help2man add current month and year to the documentation they are producing. 1162 packages have been removed and 774 have been added in the past week. Most of them are the work of proper automated investigation done by Chris West. Summer of code Finally, we learned that both akira and Dhole were accepted for this Google Summer of Code. Let's welcome them! They have until May 25th before coding officialy begins. Now is the good time to help them feel more comfortable by sharing all these little bits of knowledge on how Debian works.

Jo Shields: mono-project.com Linux packages, January 2015 edition

The latest version of Mono has released (actually, it happened a week ago, but it took me a while to get all sorts of exciting new features bug-checked and shipshape). Stable packages This release covers Mono 3.12, and MonoDevelop 5.7. These are built for all the same targets as last time, with a few caveats (MonoDevelop does not include F# or ASP.NET MVC 4 support). ARM packages will be added in a few weeks time, when I get the new ARM build farm working at Xamarin s Boston office. Ahead-of-time support This probably seems silly since upstream Mono has included it for years, but Mono on Debian has never shipped with AOT d mscorlib.dll or mcs.exe, for awkward package-management reasons. Mono 3.12 fixes this, and will AOT these assemblies optimized for your computer on installation. If you can suggest any other assemblies to add to the list, we now support a simple manifest structure so any assembly can be arbitrarily AOT d on installation. Goodbye Mozroots! I am very pleased to announce that as of this release, Mono users on Linux no longer need to run mozroots to get SSL working. A new command, cert-sync , has been added to this release, which synchronizes the Mono SSL certificate store against your OS certificate store and this tool has been integrated into the packaging system for all mono-project.com packages, so it is automatically used. Just make sure the ca-certificates-mono package is installed on Debian/Ubuntu (it s always bundled on RPM-based) to take advantage! It should be installed on fresh installs by default. If you want to invoke the tool manually (e.g. you installed via make install, not packages) use
cert-sync /path/to/ca-bundle.crt
On Debian systems, that s
cert-sync /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt
and on Red Hat derivatives it s
cert-sync /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt
Your distribution might use a different path, if it s not derived from one of those. Windows installer back from the dead Thanks to help from Alex Koeplinger, I ve brought the Windows installer back from the dead. The last release on the website was for 3.2.3 (it s actually not this version at all it s complicated ), so now the Windows installer has parity with the Linux and OSX versions. The Windows installer (should!) bundles everything the Mac version does F#, PCL facades, IronWhatever, etc, along with Boehm and SGen builds of the Mono runtime done with Visual Studio 2013. An EXPERIMENTAL OH MY GOD DON T USE THIS IN PRODUCTION 64-bit installer is in the works, when I have the time to try and make a 64-build of Gtk#.

Jo Shields: mono-project.com Linux packages an update

It s been pointed out to me that many people aren t aware of the current status of Linux packages on mono-project.com, so I m here s a summary: Stable packages Mono 3.10.0, MonoDevelop 5.5.0.227, NuGet 2.8.1 and F# 3.1.1.26 packages are available. Plus related bits. MonoDevelop on Linux does not currently include the F# addin (there are a lot of pieces to get in place for this to work). These are built for x86-64 CentOS 7, and should be compatible with RHEL 7, openSUSE 12.3, and derivatives. I haven t set up a SUSE 1-click install file yet, but I ll do it next week if someone reminds me. They are also built for Debian 7 on i386, x86-64, and IBM zSeries processors. The same packages ought to work on Ubuntu 12.04 and above, and any derivatives of Debian or Ubuntu. Due to ABI changes, you need to add a second compatibility extension repository for Ubuntu 12.04 or 12.10 to get anything to work, and a different compatibility extension repository for Debian derivatives with Apache 2.4 if you want the mod-mono ASP.NET Apache module (Debian 8+, Ubuntu 13.10+, and derivatives, will need this).
MonoDevelop 5.5 on Ubuntu 14.04

In general, see the install guide to get these going. Docker You may have seen Microsoft recently posting a guide to using ASP.NET 5 on Docker. Close inspection would show that this Docker image is based on our shiny new Xamarin Mono docker image, which is based on Debian 7.The full details are on Docker Hub, but the short version is docker pull mono:latest gets you an image with the very latest Mono.

Jo Shields: The unstoppable march of mobile technology

It s been more than 2 years since my last post about my smartphone. In the time after that post I upgraded my much loved Windows Phone 7 device to Windows Phone 8 (which I got rid of within months, for sucking), briefly used Firefox OS, then eventually used a Nexus 4 for at least a year. After years of terrible service provision and pricing, I decided I would not stay with my network Orange a moment longer and in getting a new contract, I would get a new phone too. So on Friday, I signed up to a new 15 per month contract with Three, including 200 minutes, unlimited data, and 25GB of data roaming in the USA and other countries (a saving of 200,000 per month versus Orange). Giffgaff is similarly competitive for data, but not roaming. No other network in the UK is competitive. For the phone, I had a shortlist of three: Apple iPhone 6, Sony Xperia Z3 Compact, and Samsung Galaxy Alpha. These are all small phones by 2014 standards, with a screen about the same size as the Nexus 4. I didn t consider any Windows Phone devices because they still haven t shipped a functional music player app on Windows Phone 8. Other more fringe OSes weren t considered, as I insist on trying out a real device in person before purchase, and no other comparable devices are testable on the high street. iPhone 6 This was the weakest offering, for me. 120 more than the Samsung, and almost 200 more than the Sony, a much lower hardware specification, physically larger, less attractive, and worst of all mandatory use of iTunes for Windows for music syncing.

The only real selling point for me would be for access to iPhone apps. And, I guess, decreased chance of mockery by co-workers. Galaxy Alpha Now on to the real choices. I ve long felt that Samsung s phones are ugly plasticy tat the Galaxy S5 is popular, well-marketed, but looks and feels cheap compared to HTC s unibody aluminium One. They ve also committed the cardinal sin of gimping the specifications of their mini (normal-sized) phones, compared to the normal (gargantuan) versions. The newly released S5 Mini is about the same spec as early 2012 s S3, the S4 Mini was mostly an S2 internally, and so on. However, whilst HTC have continued along these lines, Samsung have finally released a proper phone under 5 , in the Alpha.

The Alpha combines a 4.7 AMOLED screen, a plastic back, metal edges, 8-core big.LITTLE processor, and 2GB RAM. It is a PRETTY device the screen really dazzles (as is the nature of OLED). It feels like a mix of design cues from an iPhone and Samsung s own, keeping the angular feel of iPhone 4->5S rather than the curved edges on the iPhone 6. The Galaxy Alpha was one of the two devices I seriously considered. Xperia Z3 Compact The other Android device I considered was the Compact version of Sony s new Xperia Z3. Unlike other Android vendors, Sony decided that mini shouldn t mean low end when they released the Z1 compact earlier this year. The Z3 follows suit, where the same CPU and storage are found on both the big and little versions.

The Z3C has a similar construction to the Nexus 4, with glass front and back, and plastic rim. The specification is similar to the Galaxy Alpha (with a quadcore 2.5GHz Qualcomm processor about 15% faster than the big.LITTLE Exynos in the Galaxy Alpha). It differs in a few places LCD rather than AMOLED (bad); a non-removable (bad) 2600 mAh battery (good) compared to the removable 1860 mAh in the Samsung; waterproofing (good); A less hateful Android shell (Xperia on Android vs Samsung Touchwiz). For those considering a Nexus-4-replacement class device (yes, rjek, that means you), both the Samsung and the Sony are worth a look. They both have good points and bad points. In the end, both need to be tested to form a proper opinion. But for me, the chunky battery and tasteful green were enough to swing it for the Sony. So let s see where I stand in a few months time. Every phone I ve owned, I ve ended up hating it for one reason or another. My usual measure for whether a phone is good or not is how long it takes me to hit the I can t use this limit. The Nokia N900 took me about 30 minutes, the Lumia 800 lasted months. How will the Z3 Compact do? Time will tell.

Jo Shields: Xamarin Apt and Yum repos now open for testing

Howdy y all Two of the main things I ve been working on since I started at Xamarin are making it easier for people to try out the latest bleeding-edge Mono, and making it easier for people on older distributions to upgrade Mono without upgrading their entire OS. Public Jenkins packages Every time anyone commits to Mono git master or MonoDevelop git master, our public Jenkins will try and turn those into packages, and add them to repositories. There s a garbage collection policy currently the 20 most recent builds are always kept, then the first build of the month for everything older than 20 builds. Because we re talking potentially broken packages here, I wrote a simple environment mangling script called mono-snapshot. When you install a Jenkins package, mono-snapshot will also be installed and configured. This allows you to have multiple Mono versions installed at once, for easy bug bisecting.
directhex@marceline:~$ mono --version
Mono JIT compiler version 3.6.0 (tarball Wed Aug 20 13:05:36 UTC 2014)
directhex@marceline:~$ . mono-snapshot mono
[mono-20140828234844]directhex@marceline:~$ mono --version
Mono JIT compiler version 3.8.1 (tarball Fri Aug 29 07:11:20 UTC 2014)
The instructions for setting up the Jenkins packages are on the new Mono web site, specifically here. The packages are built on CentOS 7 x64, Debian 7 x64, and Debian 7 i386 they should work on most newer distributions or derivatives. Stable release packages This has taken a bit longer to get working. The aim is to offer packages in our Apt/Yum repositories for every Mono release, in a timely fashion, more or less around the same time as the Mac installers are released. Info for setting this up is, again, on the new website. Like the Jenkins packages, they are designed as far as I am able to cleanly integrate with different versions of major popular distributions though there are a few instances of ABI breakage in there which I have opted to fix using one evil method rather than another evil method. Please note that these are still at preview or beta quality, and shouldn t be considered usable in major production environments until I get a bit more user feedback. The RPM packages especially are super new, and I haven t tested them exhaustively at this point I d welcome feedback. I hope to remove the testing!!! warning labels from these packages soon, but that relies on user feedback to my xamarin.com account preferably (jo.shields@)

Jo Shields: Transition tracker

Friday was my last day at Collabora, the awesome Open Source consultancy in Cambridge. I d been there more than three years, and it was time for a change. As luck would have it, that change came in the form of a job offer 3 months ago from my long-time friend in Open Source, Miguel de Icaza. Monday morning, I fly out to Xamarin s main office in Boston, for just over a week of induction and face time with my new co workers, as I take on the title of Release Engineer. My job is to make sure Mono on Linux is a first-class citizen, rather than the best-effort it s been since Xamarin was formed from the ashes of the Attachmate/Novell deal. I m thrilled to work full-time on what I do already as community work including making Mono great on Debian/Ubuntu and hope to form new links with the packer communities in other major distributions. And I m delighted that Xamarin has chosen to put its money where its mouth is and fund continued Open Source development surrounding Mono. If you re in the Boston area next week or the week after, ping me via the usual methods! IMG_20140719_203043

Thorsten Glaser: Dear FSF, stop recommending Enigmail.

Dear FSF, stop recommending Enigmail, please. It is broken, simple as that. Even if you switch everything HTML-related off, it still defaults to the latin9 (ISO-8859-15) encoding instead of UTF-8, and possibly some other nasties. Worse, it s based upon obsolete Thunderbird/Icedove technology, which is dead since the release of Firefox 17 and will only degrate over time. Side note: I was asked recently how much entropy is used while generating a PGP key using GnuPG on Windows , after having done the same for OpenSSL on Debian (and possibly almost all other OSes). I had to try to find out which was the actual code (GnuPG 2 with libgcrypt, it turns out), and it was not pretty. (You are hereby adviced to create a 600-byte file $ GNUPGHOME:-~/.gnupg /random_seed from a good source before even attempting to use GnuPG 2 for the first time. OK, you can run gpg -k once, to create the GNUPGHOME directory from a skeleton.)

Jo Shields: Stephenson s Rocket the new name for Ye Olde SteamOSe

I ve made a new release of my curiously popular SteamOS derivative, and given it a new name: Stephenson s Rocket. Stephenson's Rocket You can download the new release from here. Release highlights:

7 February 2014

Jo Shields: Dear Fake Debian Developers, shoo.

Another post about the Valve/Collabora free games thing. This time, the bad bit people trying to scam free games from us. Before I start, I want to make one thing clear there are people who have requested keys who don t meet the criteria, but are honest and legitimate in their requests. This blogspam is not about them at all. If you re in that category, you re not being complained about. So. Some numbers. At time of writing, I ve assigned keys to 279 Debian Developers or Debian Maintainers almost 25% of the total eligible pool of about 1200. I ve denied 22 requests. Of these 10 were polite requests from people who didn t meet the conditions stated (e.g. Ubuntu developers rather than Debian). These folks weren t at all a problem for us, and I explained politely that they didn t meet the terms we had agreed at the time with Valve. No problem at all with those folks. Next, we have the chancers, 7 of them, who pretended to be eligible when they clearly weren t. For example, two people sent me signed requests pointing to their entry on the Debian New Maintainers page when challenged over the key not being in the keyring. The NM page showed that they had registered as non-uploading Debian Contributors a couple of hours previously. A few just claimed I am a DD, here is my signature when they weren t DDs at all. Those requests were also binned.
Papers, Please screenshot - denied entry application

DENIED

And then we move onto the final category. These people tried identity theft, but did a terrible job of it. There were 5 people in this category:

This is not a signature, it s a fingerprint. Amusingly, it s not the fingerprint for the person who sent my mail, but that of Neil McGovern a co-worker at Collabora. Neil assured me he knew how to sign a mail properly, so I shitcanned that entry.

Like the first one, a fingerprint. This one is for S bastien Villemot. Don t scammers know how to GPG sign?
From: "Xxxxxxxxx Xxxxxxx" <xxxxxxxx@web.de>
Subject: thanks /DD/Steam gifts us finally something back
0x6864730DF095E5E4
Yet again, a fingerprint. This one is for Marco Nenciarini. I found this request particularly offensive due to the subject line the haughty tone from an identity thief struck me as astonishingly impertinent. Still, when will scammers learn to GPG?
From: Sven Hoexter <svenhoexter@gmail.com>
Subject: Valve produced games
I'm would like to get the valve produced games
My keyring: 0xA6DC24D9DA2493D1 Sven Hoexter <hoexter> sig:6
Easily the best scam effort, since this is the only one which both a) registered an email address under the name of a DD, and b) used a fingerprint which actually corresponds to that human. Sadly for the scammer, I m a suspicious kind of person, so my instinct was to verify the claim via IRC.
31-01-2014 16:52:48 > directhex: Hoaxter, have you started using gmail without updating your GPG key? (note: significantly more likely is someone trying to steal your identity a little to steal valve keys from collabora)
31-01-2014 16:54:51 < Hoaxter!~sh@duckpond6.stormbind.net: directhex: I do not use any Google services and did not change my key
So yeah. Nice try, scammer. I m not listing, in all of this, the mails which Neil received from people who didn t actually read his mail to d-d-a. I m also not listing a story which I ve only heard second ha actually no, this one is too good not to share. Someone went onto db.debian.org, did a search for every DD in France, and emailed every Jabber JID (since they look like email addresses) asking them to forward unwanted keys. All in all, the number of evildoers is quite low, relative to the number of legitimate claims 12 baddies to 279 legitimate keys issued. But still, this is why the whole key issuing thing has been taking me so long and why I have the convoluted signature-based validation system in place. Enjoy your keys, all 279 of you (or more by the time some of you read this). The offer has no explicit expiry on it Valve will keep issuing keys as long as there is reason to, and Collabora will continue to administer their allocation as long as they remain our clients. It s a joint gift to the community thousands of dollars worth of games from Valve, and a significant amount of my time to administer them from Collabora.

Next.
