Intel is throwing in the towel on some exploited processors...

Spectre and Melt down on systems that Intel is throwing under the
bus is yet another reason to harden Porteus with a microkernel.

AMD or Intel (or... MINIX... NSA... etc.) inside?

Sign me up... So that’s why I’m building all my home systems out of ARM chip based devices. Why I use Intel / AMD boxes only for things that have no significant security risks. Why I’m interested in “home cluster computing” with a stack of cheap ARM boards and NOT interested in buying a big high end...

Intel is throwing in the towel on some exploited processors...

Intel has decided... it's not worth the trouble? Intel has issued fresh "microcode revision guidance" that reveals it won’t address the Meltdown and Spectre design flaws in all of its vulnerable processors – in some cases because it's too tricky to remove the Spectre v2 class of vulnerabilities. see...

Yet another chroot alternative?

xChroot... chroot for users with Xorg/X11 forwarding and automatic mounting + aufs/unionfs read only root support. As far as now you may already know that a pure chroot is very restricted. f.i. You can not run any GUI-applications. programs like grub or gparted need direct access to your disk device...

Casetronic "rack2tower" CLUSTER build...

Still waiting for my cluster.

In the meantime I am picking up this
accessory (I will need 7 of these)...

This adapter will re-position my cluster usb connections
to extend out towards the back of the mainboard.

Bundles: working toward a better porteus

For me... a bundle is a way to separate merged deps from packages. :unknown: @ least that's how I approach it. That way... if I remove a package it won't break another package that uses the same deps. An example of this is... 04-toolkit.xzm (fltk, tk, fox toolkit) 04-dep4toolkit.xzm (toolkit depende...

Mission, goals and mean: working toward a better porteus

What about to add gigolo to all DE?
Excellent idea... :good:

And adding isomaster to all DE would be absolutely perfect.
