LOC hilarity

Posted 01-09-2015 at 06:35 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
Updated 01-09-2015 at 06:47 PM by rocket357 (I can't English)

In a discussion on openbsd's tech@ mailing list, it was determined that ntpd-4.2.8 contained approximately 190k lines of code...a count that came up after the 8 vulnerabilities in ntpd were recently announced.

(DISCLAIMER: lines of code are difficult to count fairly, especially comparing one product to another, but this gives a rough "ballpark" idea of LOC).

Let's see if I can put this in perspective. ntpd checks and sets the time on a machine. In a nutshell,...

Another New Toy to Play With

Posted 01-08-2015 at 05:36 AM by brianL

Well, a refurbished one. Although it looks good enough to be new.

The T410 has Windows 7 Professional installed, and the C:\ drive (/dev/sda2) is sandwiched between a system partition and a recovery partition. I resized C:\, tried to install Slackware, but had a problem with lilo. So I tried again...

SLACKWARE SETUP

Now, you can proceed with the Slackware64-14.1 Installation. The installation of the Full System (7.8GB of software) took 18 minutes.

When you get to the Lilo installation and you are asked if you want to add some kernel parameters, add this:

elevator=noop tpm_tis.interrupts=0 modprobe.blacklist=ehci_pci

or
