Good security practices.

Posted 10-15-2012 at 08:36 PM by ReaperX7

Often people wonder how to really effectively protect their PCs regardless of what operating system they have on it. People think, "I can buy or download this one program and automatically I'm fully protected." They never realize how wrong they are. Just installing a toolkit doesn't give you the best protection possible. here's a few basic ways I've found to really stretch the abilities of your toolkits to not only give you proper protection, but full administration over what goes on in...

Major setback

Posted 09-11-2012 at 10:14 PM by ReaperX7

Due to my eyes not being what they used to after years of straining them in dark rooms with poor lighting and trying to work effectively, I've developed a lot of floaters (random bits floating in the eye's vitreous fluid) and have trouble focusing sharply.

Today I royally fucked up by LFS-7.2 install and I had just gotten to the actual installation of the system and was at the part where you install glibc the first time and reconfigure the tools for the temp system. I entered the...

LFS 7.2 progression report 1

Posted 09-10-2012 at 06:46 PM by ReaperX7

I made it to Grep-2.14 today and so far everything is compiling correctly and no problems that can't be solved are halting the effort.

I did run into one problem today with binutils-2.22 second pass, in which I had to remove the binutils-build directory and all files before it would build for the second pass. Not bad, but this wasn't in the documentation. There should be some added hints to remove/delete or clean up old workspaces and directories for multiple passthroughs for compiling,...

Just got to section 5.8 of the LFS handbook, "Binutils-2.22 Pass 2", and save-stated my Virtual machine. Everything is slowly coming together.

I have a sizable build tomorrow with "GCC-4.7.1 Pass 2" and finishing the rest of the Temporary system, but I should be able to get it all done.

I started off using Slackware64 13.37 as my base platform, which turned out to be a nice platform to start with as all the tools are included by default with the...

Enabling Hardware Acceleration with X11 and the DRI.

Posted 06-19-2012 at 11:41 PM by ReaperX7
Updated 07-25-2012 at 11:27 PM by ReaperX7

Getting video hardware to work on Linux is far from painful, especially on Slackware.

Note: A steps taken are done as admin "root".

Step 1: Configuring the X-Server.


Setting up the X-Server is fairly simple. Run command:
Code:
xorgsetup
at a command prompt and it takes care of most of the basics for you, and usually handles all the defaults fairly well, but there are some exceptions.

Step 2: Confirm your driver is setup...
