Hi smile,

Nice to hear that. I am currently thinking of how to make the updates possible, since you know slackware now uses other package format txz - the compression is different and I'm not sure how well slapt-get or similar program would react. Of course updating of the non graphical tools can also happen via the portage CruxPorts4Slack that is in NetSecL, but there is also some old tools in perl I wrote with a bit polishing they will work pretty good wink - and I can make them available once they work again. The time will show, let's see.

If it's better than it depends on what you understand under it. The NetSecL firewall is a script not a GUI application, it stealths all ports and protects against many scans, has snort if you would like to use it as IDS. You basically would not have to do anything just let it run (which also happens by default in NetSecL), unless you need to allow some server application trough the firewall or set some IP that the script was unable to fetch. Options are in the script itself, open it in a text editor and say Y or N to turn on or off available options. If you use the firewall in a different than NetSecL distro it will be /etc/rc.d/rc.firewall and by the default in NetSecL this would be /etc/rc.d/rc.standart

Hi,

>Can I boot from USB "NetSecL"?
Yes, you can install NetSecL on usb stick there should be no problem with that.

>it is possible to write updates in USB?
Yes, you can write on the usb - it's like having a normal external harddrive.

>and existing  "Firewall" and "Antivirus" for your linux?
Yes the firewall is there by default - there is a firewall script (netsecl-firewall).
Antivirus - Clamav&Klamav;

>it is possible to run Skype?
Yes, there should be no problem with that. You will have to configure your sound settings if you want to talk via your microphone.

Hello,

Building the new Linux kernel ( 2.6.28.8 ) for the upcoming version of NetSecL got me into trouble with sound. So let me explain what the problem was and how to solved it.

The problem is pretty simple after you understand what is going on - having an video card with HDMI in the PCIE slot and having an integrated sound card is the same as having multiple sound cards. So to have your sound configured you first start:
alsaconfig <-- from there you choose what sound card are you going to use
After that you have to configure the sound level for the appropriate device (example see below):
alsamixer -D hw:1 <-- after finishing this do not forget to store (alsactl store) the volume level or next time you boot you have to adjust the volume again
Finally adjust gmplayer and go to Audio>oss>Configure driver>Device:>/dev/dsp1

Hopefully this helps to others,
Yuriy

Hi I'm currently working on the new version - if you could make the patch work on gcc 4.3 it would be grate.

So I tested and everything works fine it seems to me that the old modules package for some strange reason staied the same - in this case try what I already told you extract the fix and uninstall the old kernel-module (ending on 2.tgz) package and install the new package (ending on 3.tgz). Anything else I might need as info to troubleshoot this is md5sum of the kernel image in boot - just to be shure. And everything should work. If you have problems tell me I'll directly upload the iso generated.

It's from the fix. So try the following untar the fix and there is a modules package. Remove the old one with pkgtool and install the one from the tar. I guess I messed up the fix script - I'll have a look when I get back home.

Hi,

I used until now the following flags:

CFLAGS="-Wa,--noexecstack -fstack-protector-all -O2 -fPIC"

I was also thinking at adding libasafe to protect the stack.

Thanks for the patches,
Yuriy

Yes,

I was thinking about htat too, it would be nice. i see that some people find it hard to use this one. or maybe just make a live dvd and rsync it to hdd and install the bootloader.

Hey,

Nice to see that you registered in the forum smile. Your english is ok for me. Ideas - tell me. Actually about the flags is well painfull, simply because not every application is working after that - aspecially graphical applications.
