Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

BTW we have copy_initrd_modules and copy-initrd-programs in cli-shell-utils (usr/local/lib/cli-shell-utils/bin) which is a depencency of live-usb-maker so we don't need copy_initrd_modules and copy-initrd-programs in snapshot. But, that probably means some editing of the snapshot app since that app ...

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

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. 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 encrypte...

Re: MX-18 beta 1 feedback

Used live-usb-maker to make an encrypted live stick (32 bit version), but on first boot on this T60, I get this error. 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 beta1...

Re: MX-17 to MX-18 update testing

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) In VBox spectre-meltdown-checker Spectre and Meltdown mitigation detection...

Looks like one difference is:
4.19.7-antix.1-amd64-smp (does not support rcu_nocbs)
4.19.4-antix.1-amd64-smp (does support rcu_nocbs)
Yes. See how it works without rcu_nocbs.
If it doen't work well, then I'll reverse the kernel config and put it back.
