Slackware-14.1-Sysctl.conf

Posted 06-22-2014 at 06:54 PM by arniekat

This file is set up for a Slackware 14.1 Desktop Machine. The only sysctl variables enabled are the ones that need to be changed from the standard Slackware settings. It is in the bottom section.

Updated 05-27-2014 at 10:52 PM by arniekat (Correct gradm script)

The principle is the same for Slackware 14.0, 13.37, etc. The GrSecurity Patches already contain the PaX Code. The Kernel Package Creation section will be on another tutorial as I get time. This tutorial shows the Manual Method of installing the kernel. I will be using Kernel 3.11.9 since that is the only GrSecurity Patch still available in the archives for gradm-3.0.
