Topic: What hardware do you use for Hyperbola?

Hello community,

would be interesting to read which hardware is in use to run Hyperbola. Speaking about myself: I'm running the system on the following devices.

  • ThinkPad X200 with Libreboot

  • ThinkPad X230T with Coreboot and Intel ME most deactivated

  • PC-Engines APU2C4 as little homeserver, using Coreboot

Certainly anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices: For a life of every being full with peace and kindness, including diversity and freedom. Capitalism is destroying our minds, the planet itself and the universe in the end!

Re: What hardware do you use for Hyperbola?

I use an x200. My other device currently uses Trisquel, but I do plan to change that in the future. Although, I also plan to get a corebooted x230 soon without the ethernet blob/ethernet crap. smile

I am curious how to put Hyperbola on the coreboot with FDE and the other one I may just get rid of in the future, its a kororapenguin.  Not quite sure how much its worth now though. ;/

It has 250SSDS though and 4 gbs of ram.

Re: What hardware do you use for Hyperbola?

Librebooted X200 and Librebooted X60

I've still got Trisquel (Uruk) on my T400 because of lack of previous Arch experience and communication difficulties but hopefully that can change soon.

asus u36sd laptop

-its full of propietary junk tough
-at least all hardware expect bluetooth worked fine under hyperbola
-dedicated gpu doesnt work so well, heat problem might occur during heavy task
-worked fine on ssd drive with multiple ram

Still this:

X200  (libreboot) still, and X230 as well (coreboot + me cleaned mostly)

and occasionally another older not so used x200 libreboot.

Re: What hardware do you use for Hyperbola?

Changed towards X220 as it only has one chip for the BIOS and has therefore reduced complexity while the X230(T) got two chips split up with the Management-Engine (more complexity for proprietary content ahead). Furthermore X200 and X60 with Libreboot!

first laptop
LIBREBOOK
macbook 2.1 motherboard hack, on to a macbook pro 15 5.1 aluminium chassis. some EC modifications with libreboot

second laptop
thinkpad T60

P.S. I think in terms of security this threath is a really bad idea, probably would be better if a list, kinda of like h-node.org, of working devices is created so no user can become a target. Cheers.

Yeah, I have to agree with you.   You are darn right.  when I read this, I thought, maybe this wasn't smart.

hmm

Maybe we should create a wiki page for devices?
Would anyone support that idea I can coordenate it with Gaming maybe so we can release portuguese and english version at the same time.

Re: What hardware do you use for Hyperbola?

Well I don't think that having some global information about used hardware is that much of a problem as it seems to be some kind of Security through obscurity which is not very helpful using to keep it "secret". If some individuals could be attacked this can be done on so many other levels and ways that this information does not even count in the first place - getting information throughout "social engineering" is just one example. And it is helpful for people having interest getting more into libre hardware and the initial setup.

But yes, having possible information about libre hardware is also helpful on a global level!
