CruxEX (CRUX 3.1) live USB, build 141017, with kernel 3.17.1

Posted 10-17-2014 at 03:24 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

CruxEX 3.1 2014 64 bit Linux Live USB is based on CRUX 3.1 (latest version, released 140716), which is all Linux enthusiasts/nerds favorite OS. (CRUX 3.1 is a lightweight Linux distribution for the x86_64 architecture targeted at experienced Linux users). CruxEX 3.1 2014 uses the LXDE Desktop environment. I have replaced the original CRUX kernel 3.12.24 with “my” special kernel 3.17.1-x86_64-cruxex, with support for “extra everything”.

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 3.17.1!

Posted 10-15-2014 at 06:13 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.1 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk, SlackEX and Exton|Defender. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 3.17.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.17.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released today (141015).

The most common problem I see new users attempting to use public key auth is to get the permissions wrong either on their home directory, .ssh directory, or authorized_keys file. Luckily, the openssh project provides a helpful FAQ answer.

My iptables firewall

Recently I posted about my firewall. Here I'm reposting that to my blog.

Here's a redacted version of my firewall rules. I'll point out a couple of things. This firewall is designed similarly to how the new RHEL7 firewalld behaves. When evaluating RHEL7 I saw some cool firewall tricks and incorporated it into my firewall (this way you can take advantage of doing things like dynamically adding and removing rules without having to refresh the firewall).
