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...

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...
