Topic: hyperbola first install experience
i am quite impressed by hyperbola!
it looks nice , package selection is great (some are quite old though - but that's the price of debian-stability )
((as for request for newer packages i would like a newer cryptsetup - the rest is (mostly) fine for me))
also the blacklist is great.
the installation was straight forward, but the wifi connection failed because the was no
in the dhcpcd.conf (or the dhcpcd-hook clobbers the wpa_supplicant config from before)
also i would like to mention that the dhcpcd-config leads to many data leaks, (vendoridclass is really bad - it sends os, kernel version etc.)
i guess the dhcpcd.conf is the vanilla one, but a commented line like this could be useful:
#uncomment this for a more privacy aware behaviour #nooption 4 7 14 17 19 20 21 27 40 41 42 69 70 71 72 73 75 76 #nohook hostname
there is a package called dhcpcd_hardened (which calls /usr/libexec/dhcpcd/dhcpcd_hardened.sh
) to achieve this, but it seems really broken to me and i cannot recommend it, because it does tihs:
#!/bin/sh # This script wipes hostname and DUID so that DHCP can't send it over the network echo 'hostname="localhost"' > /etc/conf.d/hostname # Properly sets our new host in /etc/hosts file sed -i '/127.0.0.1/c\127.0.0.1 localhost.localdomain localhost 'localhost'' /etc/hosts # Avoids need to reboot before showing our new hostname in terminals, etc hostname localhost # Delete DUID rm -rf /etc/dhcpcd.duid
for avoiding DUID dhcpcd.conf tells us (send MAC-adress clientdid)
clientid # Some non-RFC compliant DHCP servers do not reply with this set. # In this case, comment out duid and enable clientid above. #duid
thx and have a nice day!
