Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

ok, got some successs. we need to add "xts" to the copy_initrd_modules in build-iso, and I assume snapshot as well. I just booted up a default mx18b1 32bit iso this way. CRYPT_LIST=" aes blowfish dm-crypt dm-mod serpent sha256 xts " I thought the same. You beat me to it. I'll need to add it to cli-...

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

honestly not sure, but the 64 bit has an "m" as well. I've only tried 2, but I can't make a 32 bit encrypted usb with a 4.19 kernel, yet. building a 64 bit encrypted usb seems to work fine with our kernel (confirming richb's post) same story with the 4.18 kernel. 32 bit kernel from alpha 1 same wit...

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Don't "=y" and "=m" both enable the feature? One just makes it part of the monolithic kernel and the other makes it a loadable module. honestly not sure, but the 64 bit has an "m" as well.

antiX kernels has that as CONFIG_CRYPTO_XTS=y

CONFIG_CRYPTO_XTS is needed from what I found on the net.
here's what we have on the 32 bit.

Code: Select all

CONFIG_CRYPTO_XTS=m
I'm trying one of the antiX kernels.

Failed to set up dm-crypt key mapping for device /dev/sdb2 Check that kernel supports aes-xts-plin64 cipher Using live-ub-maker without encryption and the stick boots fine and beta...

Can anyone running the 4.19 32-bit kernel install spectre-meltdown-checker and see if it now supports the PTI Meltdown hardening, as was advertised? Steve (too dang lazy to upgrade in a virtual machine and check for himself) demo@mx1:~ $ sudo spectre-meltdown-checker We trust you have received the ...
