Eickmeyerteward: How are you feeling?19:23
studiobot<teward001> bleh19:25
Eickmeyerteward: If you feel like doing some security stuff / spinning-up a staging server: https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-studio-devel/2019-October/009228.html19:25
studiobot<teward001> upper respiratory symptoms are reduced now.19:26
Eickmeyer@teward001: That's good.19:26
studiobot<teward001> but the sinus congestion isn't19:26
Eickmeyer@teward001: OK, well, I need to get going, but I wanted to give you that information that we were sent this morning.19:26
studiobot<teward001> pharmacist sold me sudafed so that'll help torch my nose19:26
studiobot<teward001> i'll take a look19:26
EickmeyerSeems as though the theme is ready, but yeah, needs some security once/twice over.19:27
studiobot<teward001> Eickmeyer: Yeah, I'll run a staging server but once i'm *well* lol19:27
studiobot<teward001> can't do crap whiel still ill19:27
studiobot<teward001> while*19:27
Eickmeyer@teward001 No worries. Just whenever you can.19:27
OvenWerksEickmeyer: pong back... sorry I wasn't around yesterday.21:25
EickmeyerOvenWerks: No worries, just might have a looksee at what teward wrote concerining lowlatency merges.21:26
OvenWerksnothing new really.21:26
teward^ that21:27
tewardnothing i said is really 'new'21:27
teward:P21:27
OvenWerksI am not really a kernel person, but understand security is more important than performance21:27
OvenWerks(for any given deffinition of performance)21:27
EickmeyerYep.21:28
OvenWerksteward: The reason for both lowlatency and generic is that for video and graphics work, the generic kernel might well be considered to have better "performance" while for audio work, the lowlatency kernel "performs" better.21:29
studiobot<teward001> right21:30
studiobot<teward001> my only concern was the comparision of the config options21:30
studiobot<teward001> and if any of them introduce any major security concerns for the Kernel team that's all21:30
studiobot<teward001> i don't have any objections to adjusting the configs that lowlatency ships21:30
studiobot<teward001> i'm just asking it gets a further review for security concerns by the kernel smart people )21:31
studiobot<teward001> :) *21:31
OvenWerksif any of the tweaks in liquorix remove some of the security updates of the last two years for example, that is no good. There are different kernels one might use for offline only machines that would not be safe in something connected to the net. I think in any Ubuntu flavour, the assumption must be that the machine will be on line for good portions of it's life/use. So even in a studio, the 21:33
OvenWerkskernel must be secure.21:33
studiobot<teward001> right21:33
studiobot<teward001> but I also think SEcurity would NACK the inclusion of two separate 'base kernel' versions21:33
studiobot<teward001> that's all :)21:33
OvenWerksThat would be ok with me21:33
OvenWerksour installer (or any other) can always a second kernel.21:34
OvenWerksThe differences can be documentd.21:34
