    Computational Entropy

    Thanks.. Ha Ha.. and yea easy to recall the failures the not so great moments.. but I would add 'inevitable' even 'unavoidable' before failure.. which is really what this blog is about.

    AndEX Oreo 8.1 (Android-x86_64) – Build 180103 – with GAPPS, Aptoide App Manager and Win 10 Launcher

    Softpedia 180105: AndEX OS Now Lets You Run Android 8.1 Oreo with Windows 10 Launcher on Your PC

    "GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton is kicking off 2018 in style, and he just informed us about the availability of a new AndEX version based on Google's latest Android 8.1 "Oreo" mobile operating system.

    Dubbed AndEX Oreo 8.1, the new build of Arne Exton's Android x86_64 fork is the first to be based on Google's Linux-powered Android 8.1 "Oreo" mobile operating system, allowing anyone to install and run Android Oreo on their personal computers.

    For those switching from Microsoft Windows 10 to this Linux-based alternative, AndEX Oreo 8.1 comes bundled with a Windows 10 Launcher that looks just like the real thing, but probably even slicker thanks to the improvements put by Google in Android Oreo."

    Accessing from the outside world

    I was going around in circles in assuming ther 14.1 == 14.2 in terms of kernel netfilter configuration. After poking around the 4 corners of the internet, and some help from IRC ##slackware user dive, I found the culprit. I did set up everything correcty when upgrading to 14.2 EXCEPT one iptables rule for "New not Syn" that had changed, or had been edited sometime in the distant past.
    Old Rule, works in 14.1 (?) not 14.2:
    iptables -A bad_tcp_packets -p tcp --syn -m state --state NEW -j DROP
    New Rule, works in 14.2:
    iptables -A bad_tcp_packets -p tcp -m conntrack --ctstate NEW -m tcp ! --tcp-flags FIN,SYN,RST,ACK SYN -j DROP
    Had I used to generate and customize, this rule would have been correct.
