Got #lineageos on an old Galaxy S6 finally! My wife has been upset for months that I hadn't got it working haha. The problem was the Korean market Galaxy S6s had a "system" partition 200MiB smaller than the LineageOS system image. I had tried repartitioning (trying to upload new PIT files) to expand the system partition with no luck. Today I tried doing a manual repack and it worked! Will do a proper writeup at some point.

@sarahjeong: "The takeaway here is that we have to start thinking about privacy as a collective, environmental problem, not something that hits individual people, and certainly not something where the onus is on the individual to protect themselves." — https://www.nytimes.com/2019/05/21/opinion/internet-security.html
i love the way she uses the phrase "environmental problem". like that *other* global environmental problem we're currently facing…
I feel like someone somewhere has had this opinion.
I never really understood https://www.xkcd.com/303/ as a teen because at worst my code took like, a minute to compile, but now I'm building big ol' binaries that have six large dependencies and take 10-15 minutes to build and it makes sense now.
Okay, so I have a Thinkpad T460, which is my daily driver machine which I can't afford to break.
I've had it for nearly two years and haven't applied any firmware updates to it in that time, and I'm kind of thinking that it might be a sensible idea.
I don't have Windows installed on this machine at all -- how do I update the firmware on this machine without needing a Windows install?
Boots would be appreciated.
