Slackware-14.1-DnsCrypt Proxy 1.4.3

Posted 02-08-2015 at 08:49 PM by arniekat

How To Secure DNS with DNSCrypt-Proxy. DNSCrypt-Proxy secures your communication between your computer and a DNS Resolver. This particular setup optionally caches the DNS entries within RAM, which speeds things up for DNS queries. If you want/need to cache them on your hard drive, pdnsd would be a better solution.

Slackware-14.1-Pdnsd 1.2.9a

Posted 02-08-2015 at 04:17 PM by arniekat

Pdnsd is a proxy DNS server with permanent caching (the cache contents are written to hard disk on exit) that is designed to cope with unreachable or down DNS servers (e.g., in dial-in networking).

Create the following user and group. I picked a number so as to not conflict with the uid's-gid's assigned by SlackBuilds.org

# groupadd -g 313 pdnsd
# useradd -d /dev/null -s /bin/false -u 313 -g 313 pdnsd

SlackBuilds has version 1.2.7, but I used...

Updated 02-07-2015 at 09:44 PM by the dsc (grammer, me guess)

I'm a recovering addict in chess (not any good though, just enough to experiment some of the sweet taste ov victory, sometimes), and every now and then I have a relapse. I used to watch some chess videos on youtube, but sometime ago I unsubscribed those channels, deleted the chess-related history for a bunch of "pages" back, and I've been marking "not interested" in chess-related suggestions, and they were decreasing in number.

But now, yesterday, I had some binge-chess...

ExTiX 15.1.1 with LXQt 0.8.0 and kernel 3.18.0-10-exton

Review
Distrowatch.com (Jesse Smith) has reviewed ExTiX 15.1 Gnome Edition on February 2, 2015. Smith was critical on many points. I have therefore now rebuilt ExTiX from scratch. The biggest change is that I have replaced Gnome 3.14 with LXQt 0.8.0. Moreover, I have added the programs that I believe Smith was missing in the previous version of ExTiX.

Replacement
ExTiX 15.1.1 build 150205 replaces version 15.1 build 150105 with Razor-qt and version 15.1 build 150104...
