Thanks for that JamesBond. Looked high and low myself and found little guidance. Appreciated.

As a test for performance issues arising when 2 LAN adapters (in this case, wired and wireless) are active to the same subnet, a test need be constructed and PXE Netboot on a FATDOG may just be animal which can shed clear light.

Test 1
So, on one hand, PXE Netboot need be started on a wired ONLY FATDOG. The LAN PC which is to use PXE to boot, should be stopwatched to its desktop.

Test 2 - DO NOT CHANGE the order of these steps of this test as it may impact the outcome.
Start by rebooting FATDOG without its LAN cable plugged in so that ONLY the wireless adapter can be activated for LAN service. This, then, is a wireless FATDOG now running where you insure you have a LAN address. After system reaches its desktop and you have wireless started to your LAN, a ethernet wire need be plugged in. When done, FATDOG will automatically configure it for sysem use. Display your adapters to insure both have IP addresses.
Code:
# ip addr
Next PXE Netboot need be started on this wireless+wired FATDOG. The LAN PC which is to use PXE to boot, should be stopwatched to its desktop.

Comparison
    Has the stopwatch times differed between these 2 tests?
Here to help.


Found this http://fogproject.org/forum/threads/pxe-boot-very-slow.3671/ that implies slower speeds could be a consequence of tftp's simplicity. The guy was also seeing 10mbit speeds under tftp and saw those jump 10 fold after switching to http based delivery/transfer.

It would be nice to see my 400MB PXE pup net boot in 30 seconds rather than 5 mins - especially as I can download 400MB from the internet in around a minute (conceptually faster to boot using a remote offsite initrd than it is to use a local one !!!).

Thanks James for adding the Firefox and Flashplayer update scripts.

Pain having to remaster 4 USB sticks every couple of weeks but better than nothing and it well help new users stay up too date.

Apparently Firefox have announced its new Privacy initiative Polaris is now in its beta stage so users can expect a load of updates this year.

It's a good thing to do for protecting people from drive by exploits in adverts auto playing but it doesn't protect people from being infected if they click and play what they think is a legitimate video on a legitimate website until adobe releases a new patch this week.

They are saying it's a bit of a joke on the security forums as it gives people a false sense of security because if you don't click anything then you may as well uninstall flash and if you do click anything then you can't tell until after playing if you are infected.

One of the biggest legitimate video porn sites Xhamster that vets and checks all their content before it gets posted have already been caught out with this flash exploit and are currently unsure how many of it's 600,000 users have clicked what they thought was safe content and got infected.

Click to play is still a good thing to do though and people will still need to use James new update script often until the web moves over to HTML5.

The big problem in GB is the inertia, corruption of the old-school-tie variety and crass IT ignorance amongst the public school management of the BBC who provide their iPlayer. Nothing wrong with their engineers, or, at least, that used to be the case. To cap it all, the idiot Blair awarded Gates an honorary knighthood and there is a strong undercurrent of political interference with the media - probably a universal issue. These goons are so dumb they think the rest of us plebs are as stupid as they are. In short, the Beeb technicians had an html5 virtually ready before the rest, but we have to struggle on with Adobe Flash for the reasons outlined. Sometimes one despairs for a once great and visionary nation presently being degraded by the day by a bunch of morons. The only saving grace that global capitalism, cant, hypocrisy, greed, nepotism and co are degrading most of the RoW as well! The human condition one presumes. Fatalists might welcome the next large meteor strike followed by the third/fourth/fifth mass extinction?

/var/slapt-get contains a lot of txz packages, even from apps I have removed. Does "it works fine for Fatdog" mean I can delete these? (I'm cleaning house to reduce long "running auchk" delay during bootup)
Thanks

New patch is out , everyone should update.

" 15 hijack flaws patched "

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/02/05/adobesighpatches_anothersighflash_zeroday_vulnerability/

The remote-code exec bugs allow miscreants to hijack vulnerable Windows, OS X and Linux computers, simply by luring victims to websites booby-trapped with malicious Flash files.

People should upgrade their copies of the software as soon as possible. Adobe noted that at least one of the flaws (CVE 2015-0313) is already being exploited by attackers to take over PCs from afar. Once inside a computer, crooks can swipe passwords, spy on victims and more.

PostPosted: Fri 06 Feb 2015, 10:40    Post subject: update-mime-database when loading SFS?  

I'm making an SFS file for an app that needs to add new MIME types to the system. That calls for automatically running:
update-mime-database /usr/share/mime/packages
when the SFS file is loaded. I will place that command inside tmp/sfs/autorun.sh in the SFS source folder.

1) Is it appropriate for an SFS file to update MIME types, or will it break something in the existing MIME types and/or menus?
2) Does /tmp/sfs/autorun.sh fire before or after the SFS filesystem is loaded? I need it to fire after.

That /var cleaning is no longer correct. In 700 (or may be in late 600s, I can't recall), the only /vars cleaned out are: /var/cache /var/lock /var/locks and /var/run; others are kept, because this is what LSB actually says (and a lot of programs keep their "variable data" stuff in /var). "keepvar" still exists, and prevent even those above from being cleaned out.

Indeed, that directory is the "downloaded package cache" for slapt-get/gslapt. Feel free to remove anything inside there, either manually or by running "slapt-get --clean".

No, it is okay and it is appropriate. It is actually better than shipping the "updated" MIME files in the SFS itself, because the same MIME files on pupsave can always override them. Note you run it as "update-mime-data /usr/share/mime".

It is run after SFS is loaded, and before SFS is unloaded (while the SFS has been/still being merged into the root filesystem). When it runs you have access to the SFS itself. You've got a parameter $1 that tells you what action is being done on the sfs (load/unload/systemload/systemunload) and the $2 tells you the path of the SFS (/aufs/pup_roxxxx) in case you need it.

will the build scripts for the newer way using LFS be released so we can build our own? Have been successful builting LFS and BLFS multiple times but not to the state like fatdog64. Also if/when how to share changes.
I know its kinda jumping the gun but was not owning a 64bit machine when Fatdog jumped to 64bit left me out of the understanding how things where done.
Also any Raspberries in the works?

Also will be mostly out of the big city till Feb 14th Valentines date, do you have a ballpark idea when the Fatdog64Beta3 or such will be released? Ideally before Friday the 13th since I have a pickup in the city and plan to stay till after Valentines date. That gives me almost two full days of high speed internet to play with. Very Happy
in town today just incase its soon.. Based on the Spurs/Heat game tonight will mostly stay til tomorrow morning in San Antonio. Not sure if Kirk is a Heats fan so I will not post my normal Go Spurs Go, out of respect, could be a good game!!
