I know some feathers are going to be rustled by the title, but thats just fine for this discussion. What I know (you may know more): -Ubiquiti ships a modified Uboot in their firmware. We do not have the sources (unless something has changed in the last week). -Ubiquiti bases most if not all of firmwares off OpenWRT. -OpenWRT runs great on Ubiquiti equipment. -Uboot is an open source project, and the devs have repeatedly requested Ubiquiti provide accurate sources for their bootloader as per GNU. Pros/cons for a proprietary bootloader. (I know, i know but we have to play devil's advocate) Pros: -Ubiquiti has graceously developed and produced hardware that is far superior in performance and usability to traditional solutions. -its just a bootloder (or is it?) -it can still boot OpenWRT (maybe LibreWRT for all I know) Cons: -We do not know whats in that part of the firmware. -We risk bricking devices trying to use a different Uboot. -Ubiquiti's Uboot may have changes implemented by NSA type 3 and 4 letter agencies. -We do not know if the theoretical changes have real security impacts for running Open Source firmware. -Ubiquiti wouldnt be able to tell us about whats in Uboot if they are lawfully obligated to keep their lips zipped. -The modified Uboot is not GNU -The modified Uboot may have compatibility issues in the future keeping us from running various versions of Linux Kernel or other pieces of software. -Ubiquiti could lock it down in the future to keep us from running alternative firmwares. My questions: -Has anyone been working on getting a truly Open Source Uboot working for these devices? -How difficult would it be to do this? -Does anyone care? submitted by dicknuckle [link] [1 comment]

Hello everyone! Sorry if this is the wrong place, if it is just let me know and I'll head that way. Anyways I'm wanting to increase my knowledge of Linux and get some certifications along the way to throw at hiring managers and I noticed that the Linux+ tests also count as a LPIC-1 if you do it right. Should I bother with the Linux+ tests? Which one 'matters' more then the other? I'm leaning towards the Linux+ tests if the semi-cheaty way of pulling a bunch of certs out of those tests is still valid. Any advice? My ultimate goal is a Python developer role and that dovetails quite nicely with linux experience and its always a good skill to have. submitted by almightyfoon [link] [comment]

I have a bot for Beam.pro (Scottybot) and it recently got a sponsorship with Creeperhost. Their servers run CentOS 6.6. Before it was on Ubuntu 14.04. Before it could handle unicode output no problem, but when I migrated the configs, sql database, and bot itself, all of a sudden all Unicode just comes out as ???? instead of what it should be. I am using MariaDB 10 and its config file is this http://pastebin.com/Xn7B9mCk There was no code changes to the bot (which is in java) the only changes were a few file paths in the config to support CentOS and the fact its on CentOS 6.6 Help me, I am confused. submitted by Pocketpac [link] [2 comments]
