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,...

NEWS 150108 re. Exton|Defender FC21 (Fedora 21)
I’ve made a new live version of Exton|Defender 64 bit. Now based on Fedora 21, released 141209. It uses Cinnamon 2.4.5 and kernel 3.17.7.

Another New Toy to Play With

Posted 01-08-2015 at 04:36 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.

Slackware-Current-Acer C720 Setup 2

Posted 01-07-2015 at 09:05 PM by arniekat


# 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


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