mc2 and new-make demos and/or sandbox installations for whatever purpose you like.

LEDA 6.3 with (mostly) working 'test'files and
Xerces 3.11 sandbox installers.

Here's a couple of examples that install into a sandbox HOME/usr32 which requires ~/usr32/bin in your PATH and ~/usr32/lib in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH to use.

new mc2 and new-make versions

Posted 12-06-2012 at 02:54 AM by rainbowsally
Updated 12-06-2012 at 02:56 AM by rainbowsally (typo correction)

The new mc2 version includes some stuff to allow more targets without getting your hands dirty modifying the output makefile. More templates.

[Save your old templates before installing this version, if you have any. They might get overwritten.]

The new new-make has better 'make finddeps' dependency output and a couple...

LFS: Building a kernel

The chapter that deals with setting up the kernel (Linux-x.y.x) is too limited in my opinion. I do realise that my extension is out-of-scope for the LFS developers, but I do think that many will benefit from it, especially if you want to tinker with kernels and their settings.

How I would like to enhance iptables

Posted 12-04-2012 at 04:44 PM by Skaperen

There are cases where I want to change the iptables rapdily and reliably. But these cases don't really change any rule order. They only change just the IP addresses of a rule (or gang of rules).

Here's my idea. Designate some IP addresses for this special purpose, such as 0.1.X.Y where X.Y represents 65536 possible address objects. The address objects are stored in the kernel with a means for root or designated users to access them. There would be a /proc entry for this, with...

Xfce 4.10 and Mageia 2

Posted 12-04-2012 at 04:36 AM by nigelc

I used to like the gnome desktop, but not after gnome 3
Xfce seemed to be what gnome used to be, however it had bugs:
segfault on several programs. Desktops disappearing etc.
A few days ago some updates for xfce arrived and now it's purrfect.
On the bottom taskbar it has a blue flashing thing to show which task running.
The right mouse button works better.
It now 2 logins the gnome & the xfce.
how I remove the gnome login?
