teK_this was OCZ vs. WD04:17
Amnesiahm I;m planning on getting a samsung pro 840 256GB04:18

jaegerAmnesia: the 840 pro should be solid, avoid the 840 non-pro06:12
Amnesiawil ldo06:12
jaegerAmnesia: In general you will replace an SSD long before you exhaust its NAND but with that said, the 840 pro uses standard long-endurance MLC and the 840 uses more budget-friendly TLC with low endurance06:12
Amnesiasounds good06:13
jaegerAnyone have a preference regarding fail2ban vs. denyhosts for ssh brute force attack mitigation?06:16
Amnesiafirewall stuff06:17
Amnesiaor isn't that an option?06:17
jaegerI already do some rate limiting on ssh attempts but would like something that will automatically ban IPs if they keep trying06:18
jaegerconnection rate limiting with iptables, I mean06:19
Amnesiayou could also make use of port knocking06:22
jaegerI've considered that but rejected it in this case due to having quite a few non-technical users06:22
Amnesiamake use of priv/pub keys?06:23
jaegersame deal :)06:23
joacimI use denyhosts, but I havent put much thought into it06:24
joacimi think the idea was that i wouldnt have to work with a firewall06:25
jaegerI'm leaning towards fail2ban since I already use an iptables firewall on that server but figured I'd ask for opinions :)06:27
Amnesiadon't both do the same?06:28
Amnesiaah nvm06:28
jaegerdenyhosts uses hosts.{deny,allow} as far as I can tell06:28
Amnesiafail2ban isn't ssh only06:28
jaegernot all services use tcp_wrappers06:28
jaegerI think they can both do more than just SSH these days but I might be wrong on that06:28
Amnesiaboth look find06:31
AmnesiaI'd keep it simple though and firewall stuff:)06:31
Amnesia(using a default deny that is )06:31
entehow big is the price difference between 840 and 840 pro?06:39
entebeen meaning to buy an ssd myself06:39
jaegerno idea here, haven't looked06:41
*** Kaishi has quit IRC06:47

*** nyc_ has joined #crux06:50
*** deus_ex has joined #crux06:52
enteand it's really worth that? :D07:13
ente[15:27] <@jaeger> not all services use tcp_wrappers07:13
entepatches for this are trivial07:13
enteso if you want to, you can get there by changing 2 lines and linking -lwrap07:14
jaegerIt's a debian system, I'm not patching their software07:15
jaegerGoing to play with fail2ban for a bit, see how it goes07:15
entepatching debian packages is also trivial07:16
jaegerIt is, yes. Worth it? No.07:16
jaegerBoth packages will accomplish the goal, anyway07:16
entethat's a different question07:16
jaegerI used to maintain quite a few custom debian and red hat packages years ago... they weren't difficult, just annoying to update every time it was necessary07:17
entepackaging new stuff for debian is annoying though07:17
enteand putting it in the repo is the worst part about it07:17
enteI prefer rpm, specfiles are actually not all that bad07:18
jaegerI don't really have a preference, they're both ok if you take the time to learn them07:18

Amnesiado you folks actually use that?12:16
diverseAmnesia: if you want to preserve your ssd's performance for a longer period of time you use it. If you don't, the performance degrades quickly.12:17
Amnesiahm ok12:17
jaegeryes :)12:19
jaeger /dev/sda2 / ext4 relatime,discard 0 112:19
jaeger /dev/sda2 / ext4 relatime,discard 0 1[A[A[A[A[A[A[A12:19
Amnesiaare you usinf fstrim or the discard option?12:19
jaegerthanks for the extra line, irssi12:19
joacimpasted my password to irc once due to irssi (for windows)12:21
joacimit was my fault really. didnt know that right click was paste.12:22
Amnesiais there anything else I should take care of before plugging in the ssd?12:24
*** nyc_ has quit IRC12:25
joacimi read somewhere that you should align your partitions by bytes instead of cylinders when using an ssd12:26
Amnesiayeah I read the same12:28
*** joacim has quit IRC12:58
*** joacim has joined #crux13:02
jaegermost SSDs report 512B sectors and 1M alignment is the most common, so start at 2048s13:30
Amnesiahow could I determine what's the best?13:31
jaegermanufacturer specs, probably13:32
*** Kaishi has joined #crux13:36
Amnesiahm ok13:42
diverseits quite a complicated process, isn't it?13:42

himynameisphilpossible to background the services in rc.conf? as it is, they seem to run sequentially. I would like some to be able to run in the background at the same time as subsequent ones.18:32

diversefor me at least23:50
Romsterwell i did see some gogle project for pidgin to use skype.23:53
Romsterdunno if that even works.23:53
Romstersome sip protocol might be more suited to your needs.23:53
diverseI am leaning away from using the skype protocols, so SIP would be good.23:55
Romsterwould be harder for me since others use skype.23:56
Romsterand it's on my android phone too23:56
diverseits fine, i will wait for input from others23:58
