Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 4.1.1!

Posted 07-03-2015 at 09:42 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 4.1.1!

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 and SlackEX. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 4.1.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 4.1.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Released 20150629.

ssh authorized_keys command= script example

Posted 06-24-2015 at 11:48 PM by catkin

I found little prior art on the 'net regards ssh authorized_keys command= scripts so it may be useful to share the solution we use with our backup scripts.

The remote computer backslash-escapes command words using bash's printf %q. The received command is available to the command= script in envar SSH_ORIGINAL_COMMAND.

The command= script has three jobs:
  1. Validate the command against a series of custom regexes
  2. Convert the SSH_ORIGINAL_COMMAND string to individual
