Hi fredx181, is there any patch for "Spectre" and "Meltdown" in debian 9 (stretch) dog. And using "user" instead of "root" can give more protection from this two thread?

You can upgrade the kernel to latest security release by running "upgrade-kernel", see here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=980018#980018
But the patching is a work in progress, I guess, there's only a patch for "Meltdown" at this time, as far as I know.
And you can login as normal user "puppy" or create a new user and login with that.
(if that's going to give more protection, to be honest, I don't know)

Fred

I tried this on another nvidia machine and it worked the same way. Apparently only a small part of the nvidia install package is actually kernel-related.

If you remove the old version and install the new one, it's smart enough to just build the new kernel module.

Is there a better way in apt-get to remove-install in one step?

BTW, I have used the same procedure when I forgot to install the kernel headers at the beginning of the install and the operation failed.

From my reading, nvidia cards will sometimes pick the open source, low quality "nouveau" driver. To make sure that never happens, imho, it's important to create a xorg.conf for your card. Debian says it's not needed, but I personally would rather be safe, than sorry and create it. Either manually: /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf
Code:
Section "Device"
Identifier "My GPU"
Driver "nvidia"
EndSection
or
Code:
apt-get install nvidia-xconfig
and run
Code:
nvidia-xconfig
command that will do it for you. Again, Debian says, xorg is configured automatically and this tool is deprecated, which doesn't mean it's useless. You can always do
Code:
apt-get remove nvidia-xconfig
. And also you can blacklist the nouveau driver: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nouveau.conf
Code:
blacklist nouveau
blacklist lbm-nouveau
options nouveau modeset=0
alias nouveau off
alias lbm-nouveau off
And also, before doing any nvidia installs, it's recommended to do some clean up first:
Code:
apt-get remove nvidia*

edit

A matter of semantics: a full-blown xorg.conf, of course isn't needed. It has been deprecated a long time ago. The correct way to describe that configuration is 20-nvidia.conf.

Thank you Fredx181, I have done the upgrade-kernel as you say.

Updated mklive-stretch script
Added "xserver-xorg-video-intel" to the standard installed packages (without it, X won't start in some cases)

Also added xserver-xorg-video-intel to all custom configs (for preconfigured Desktop Environment choices).

This is ms-sys from here. It restores the MBR of a hard drive to its original DOS/Win state. Use it to remove the Grub4Dos bootloader.

For example:
Code:
ms-sys -m -w /dev/sda        #write an XP boot record
ms-sys -7 -w /dev/sda         #write a Win7 boot record

Use with care.

Remove the fake .gz extension.

Speaking of useful packages to include in mklive builds, I just acquired an old desktop box with AMD graphics. Before X will start, it needs firmware-amd-graphics.

This package may be too big to include in minimal builds, but you can install it from the console prompt:
Code:
dmesg | grep radeon | grep firmware
apt-get update
apt-get install firmware-amd-graphics
rmmod radeon
modprobe radeon
startx

Here is a simple file-sharing system for your home LAN. It uses Python to run a basic HTTP server.


I just tried your simple-python-http-server_1.1.deb in BionicDog and Tahrpup-6.5. It is absolutely BRILLIANT! Simple, straightforward and effective and way less overhead compared to Samba and a network browser. I used Palemoon to copy files from one machine to another and get the URL of directories. I then used PMirrorget to copy directories from one machine to the other. No worrying about passwords, sharenames or .conf files. Definitely "Keep It Simple" software. Very Happy

You've outdone yourself Bill. I'll never use samba again.

Cheers, J

What a great idea! I had been wondering how to download a whole directory of files in one step.

PMirrorget is here.

And here is a version for Stretch. Remove the fake .gz extension.

1. Open the server in your web browser.
2. Right-click on a link to a directory and select Copy Link.
3. Run Pmirrorget and paste in the URL.
4. Select a destination folder on your computer.
5. Click Grab It.

It's either 32bit or 64bit.

Gnost is a partition backup/restore system. It creates image files of NTFS/ext/FAT partitions. It is a front-end for the packages ntfs-3g, partclone and lzop.

Extract the attachment below. It is NOT a fake .gz file! It contains the clickable script "gnost" and a help file.

Do NOT run the script yet. Read the help first.

[Edit] Project removed due to lack of interest. If anyone else wants this, they can send me a request.

Added to repos: "Usenet Poster", see info here:
http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=112597
Depends on python, yad and par2.
Install "posterpy" from Synaptic or with apt-get:
Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install posterpy


@Biill, Thanks, added link to your previous post to the "Useful info links" section at first post and added new v1.5 Touchpad package to repos.

Fred
