Interesting blog post about zswap functionality

Posted 06-25-2014 at 04:31 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Tags ram, swap, zswap

Zswap is basically like a "fake swap partition" inside the RAM itself, but instead of just "moving" things from one place to another in the RAM, these things are compacted, instead of being written to the actual swap partition, on the HDD. Or so I understand. It then squeezes more out of the RAM than with non-compressed use, at some cost of CPU due to the compression/uncompressions, and monitoring, but sparing access to the swap partition on the HDD.

On the road - part 5..."that van"

So, if you have read my past posts you'll know where this van was picked up from. San clemente. Our time in the van was limited, just a short trip from LA until a small border town in Arizona, but it is a defining experience to the entire trip. These 2 girls, Erin and Danielle, where our saviors from LA. They picked myself, Shaun, and light up from San clemente and we planned to ride all the way to Arkansas. We drove from there down interstate 5 (a major motorway/freeway) until we hit a small Highway...

That a lot of good full time Linux users have Hall Monitor syndrome.

"That it is illegal. That it is spelled wrong. That it violates. No, you'll shoot your eye out.
That does not meet the standards. Mine is best. F the rest. "

It is almost like when the bully took ones lunch money in grade school.
It turned them into a raving control freak advancing into adult hood.

I mod at other Linux forums. I mod at Windows/Mac forums also....

Slackware-14.1-Intrusion Detection

Posted 06-22-2014 at 10:49 PM by arniekat

A very important part of Security is also the Integrity of your system and being able to detect when your system components have been maliciously compromised by a person or an organization. Some useful tools to think about for Integrity/Verification are Aide, Chkrootkit, Rkhunter, and Tiger security scripts. Lynis is more of a tool to check the security settings of your system, but I find it useful.

Download and compile the following from SlackBuilds.org and from Slacky.eu:
