Hello again,
Still delighted with my Slacko but I don't seem to be able to securely remove files. With other distros I've used the "shred" command or "srm" neither of which is apparently available in Slacko. What do you use, anyone?

I simply took "shred" binary from Lupu-528.

Also, I came up with this once:

Code:
SIZE=`du -b FILENAME | cut -f1`
dd if=/dev/urandom of=FILENAME bs=1 count=$SIZE

but I'm still not sure if this really overwrites exactly the same sectors of a file..?

Greetings!

Thank you SFR,
That worked fine. I didn't have an ISO of Lupu but I found another distro, a Debian based one which provided the required bin.
Thanks again.
