Run your Slackware installation with the latest kernel – 4.8.1!

Posted 10-10-2016 at 11:45 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

NEWS 161010
Kernel 4.8.1-x86_64-exton is my newest Slackware kernel. The stable kernel 4.8.1 was released on October 7, 2016.

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware Current (14.2) and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk and SlackEX.

Misuse of sudo(8) and sudoers(5)

Posted 10-07-2016 at 06:46 AM by Turbocapitalist

The utility sudo(8) runs programs as another user. Frequently, that other user is root, but it does not have to be, the utility can also be used to downgrade privileges. Often it is mis-used to provide full root access to a group of users in place of su(1). However, sudo(8) was developed to give selective access to machines, following the principle of least privilege.

Code:
#mount -t msdos /dev/usbpartition# /mnt/usb
