new mc2 - creates makefiles from a source tree

Posted 12-08-2012 at 12:17 AM by rainbowsally

Fixed a bug in mc2 noticed here.
Where It Crashed:

The large number of files listed in the mc2.def was overloading the parser so Parser (and the string list file and pipe reader) got a heftier buffer.

The file above is a java application. Not a great one but it shows one way mc2 can even generate makefiles for java applications using EXT_ALL as a target and some other tricks.

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.

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 05:44 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...
