Signal messaging downloads

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/08/23

I forgot about the announcement that Signal had also become available on the Desktop, but it is via [WayBack] https://signal.org/download/:

  • Mac
  • Windows
  • Debian based x64 Linux:

$ curl -s https://updates.signal.org/desktop/apt/keys.asc | sudo apt-key add -
$ echo "deb [arch=amd64] https://updates.signal.org/desktop/apt xenial main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/signal-xenial.list
$ sudo apt update && sudo apt install signal-desktop

I like the mix of echo and tee to update the [WayBack] /etc/apt/sources.list.d folder with the signal-xenial.list file.

These links will always give you the latest download filename:

The files you get there will be relative to the path https://updates.signal.org/desktop/ so will be similar to:

You can get the sources at https://github.com/WhisperSystems/Signal-Desktop/releases

SSH: Connection Reset by Peer – Server Fault

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/22

One occasion I had SSH throw a Connection Reset by Peer on my when was the SD-card of a Raspberry Pi started failing and the ext4 filesystem got mounted in read-only mode.

Then sshd was still listening on port 22, but since it could not write to disk any more, it threw a Connection Reset by Peer to the client.

It was on OpenSuSE Tumbleweed, but would failed just as well using Raspbian.

Lessons learned:

  • IoT hardware will fail.
  • ext4 breaks when the hardware breaks.

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/04/11

So we are all doomed: on debian, beep was an issue leading into a CVE. The fix is an issue too, and also has a CVE.
