xfce4 version 4.10 preview before final release.

Posted 04-21-2012 at 10:09 PM by stretchedthin

I built xfce4 version 4.10pre2 from the source provided on the site and thought I'd do my bit to help the upcoming release and give give it some much deserved promotion . Disclaimer, Xfce4 is my desktop environment of choice, as most of you know. I don't like giving up performance for the sake of bells and whistles but thanks to Xfce4 I can have both.

Why is netfilter in kernel space?

Posted 04-21-2012 at 04:11 PM by Skaperen

Isn't one of the kernel design intentions to move more things to user space and keep the kernel itself smaller? I think network filtering should be one of those things.

So why haven't they done that? Is it considered too much of a performance issue to use user processes filter packets? I don't think it would be. But maybe there is some functionality missing that can be done in the kernel and not in user space?

The API would not be hard. Just create device nodes...
