@kazuma you're cishet in my heart. you absolute loser
@mngrif Don't think so.
@nitox Ehh it depends on the laws in your country and what you've agreed to. Otherwise we couldn't have projects like Wine and ReactOS or virus protection software.
@nitox It's up to the people making the claims to show proof. There's been no proof a backdoor, just paranoia.
As for verifying, it's firmware so if there's a backdoor I'm sure someone would have found it by now.
@nitox I wouldn't take much notice on libreboot or coreboot, they're paranoid. Going with nonfree firmware should be fine for most use cases.
@StephenLB Yeah but this is the writing on the wall
@vecna Yeah I know that feel
@faoluin 'pkg' downloads binary packages built from ports I think
i really don't know how to feel about this. the packager is packaging the software, and the software is broken- but it's broken upstream at this version too? but because they're packaging an older version they're going to just let the out-of-the-box breakage stay
@faoluin ah ok. did you try the pkg command?
