Lessons Learned, Applied

Posted 05-29-2014 at 03:25 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
Updated 05-29-2014 at 10:16 AM by rocket357

I decided to take the move to Seattle as an opportunity to completely rebuild my home network and harden/update/reinforce particular areas I felt needed attention in my last configuration. A fresh install of OpenBSD-5.5 ensured that nothing from the old configuration remained (partially because I upgraded to a larger CF card, and partially because I just felt like cleaning house completely).

First off, I had a single port that was trunked to the switch, with multiple vlans running...

Liquorix kernel seems more responsive than Debian's default

Posted 05-28-2014 at 10:46 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I'm somewhat skeptical of the tuned-kernel movement, so I didn't install it expecting to make my OS "fly" or anything. It just happened that recently there had been some weird kernel error messages ("perf samples too long"), and, related to that or not, the OS would become sluggish with lots of read-or-write activity (on my old HDD that must be really slow, to add to sluggishness). Apparently you can sort of solve it in a sysctl-like way, printing a "0" to some file/parameter,...

slow 'net connection

Posted 05-28-2014 at 04:08 AM by pierre2

suprisingly, it will D/L stuff quite A.ok,
but it just won't stream any 'browsing the internet' ie: surf the 'net.

someting to do with the tower, - is about 8000m away - that's too far?
always thought that you could get over 20Km with mobile technology,
- but aparantly not.

going...

Slackware-14.1-GrSecurity/PaX Kernel

Posted 05-27-2014 at 10:20 PM by arniekat
Updated 05-27-2014 at 10:52 PM by arniekat (Correct gradm script)

This tutorial will show a quick way to get GrSecurity/PaX running on Slackware64 14.1 Kernel 3.10.17. 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. FYI, I have also got the GrSecurity...
