comment How often are user repositories abused?
@Bratchley: that's a while ago, I don't think they had all the security measures in place yet. That's largely irrelevant in the case TomTom is concerned about, i.e. random repos provided by unofficial sources. You'll have to trust their "unofficial" GPG key (or ignore the "this package is not signed" warning, or whatever) to use the repo.

comment How often are user repositories abused?
As for whether it happens - main repos and their mirrors are a much juicier target. Has happened before (e.g. lwn.net/Articles/62499).

I don't think this is really answerable, or a Unix/Linux problem at all. You get the same thing with Windows - installing stuff from random locations will get you random malware. Some apps/frameworks do stuff like telling you to run wget http://wherever | bash or similar to install themselves; same deal, no package manager required, bad habit to get into.

comment What changes my boot partition and how to prevent it?
(Some?) filesystems store a mount count and last mount time in their superblock(s), one of which will usually be very close to the start of the partition.

comment Mount linux mount in windows (without ftp)?
Answers that are just links are frowned upon here - they're useless as soon as the link dies. Also, what you link to is the opposite: mounting a Windows share on a Linux host. So it doesn't answer your question.

comment Python now thinks arguments are files: Broken emerge, pip, livestreamer and most tools using Python
Yep, looks like it. The symlinks are ok, maybe that python-exec2 file itself got borked somehow, have a look at it (or python-exec2-c, but that's supposed to be an executable). Can you try re-emerging dev-lang/python-exec maybe?

Looks ok. This is very strange :-) Does /usr/bin/python2.7 /usr/lib/python-exec/python2.7/emerge work?

Strange. Can you check that your PATH is about sane, and check that /usr/bin/python is a symlink to python-wrapper, and that python-wrapper is an executable (not a script)? Can you use python2 and python3 without issues?

comment 404 ERROR while trying to access my java application through reverse proxy NGINX
There is absolutely no information in your post or comment that could enable someone outside your admins to debug this. We're not a support site. You need to track things down on your side. If you have problems with say a proxy configuration or something, post the details about that. But we can't debug the problem for you.

You'll need to provide much more info if you expect any help.
