  • spectre-meltdown-checker

    Spectre, Meltdown, Foreshadow, Fallout, RIDL, ZombieLoad vulnerability/mitigation checker for Linux & BSD

    Project mention: Can a laptop from 2012 be a viable home server? | | 2022-05-10

    OpenBSD will disable all but the first thread on any Intel processor by default. I'm assuming that these models are too old to have microcode updates addressing the Spectre exploits (Meltdown, Foreshadow, Fallout, Zombieload, RIDL etc.), and disabling SMT/HT might be the most secure thing to do by default.

    This script produces a good assessment of Spectre problems for a wide variety of CPUs. I know that they are difficult to exploit, and the mitigations are disabled by many because of their performance impact.

  • build

    Armbian Linux build framework

    Project mention: What is wrong with this wifi router? | | 2022-05-23

    I am trying to make a wifi router using an Orange Pi PC+ single board computer. The board is running the latest stable version of Debian 11 from the Armbian project. I am using the board's onboard RTL8189FTV wifi chip to provide wifi access, and NetworkManager's nmcli device wifi hotspot command to create the access point.

    Run your own privacy-first ad blocking service at home, or in the cloud for free with Google Cloud Services.

    Project mention: Set up Pihole on Google Compute Platform and works when connected to VPN. Can I set it up with a router somehow? | | 2022-05-24

    I followed this tutorial and set up PiHole on GCP. It works, both with split tunnelling and full tunnelling. However, I need to have the VPN app on all the time for it to work. So I wanted to set it up behind my router and I found Option B on this website, which I couldn't make sense of it (I am mostly a novice). Is there a way to set it up with a TP-Link Archer A6?

    Project mention: Anything new? | | 2021-09-13

    You need a rooted RP2 in order to be able to run KTweaks, the latter is an app which runs a ~200 line kernel-optimizing script at boot. Here's a bit more info on the script itself:

    Project mention: Intro to BPF CO-RE | | 2022-04-26

    Very nice article! FYI, there is a project called BTFHub which generates BTFs for old kernels - thus making libbpf CORE available on almost all kernels! 1. BTFHub repo

  • FunKey-OS

    Buildroot-based embedded Linux OS for the FunKey S retro-gaming console

    Project mention: Looking for handheld that plays SNES & PS1 | | 2022-04-22

    FunKey S -- This is my favorite, it is absurdly small but it runs both systems great. Despite the small form factor, I do find it comfortable to play on. Except anything that makes frequent use of the L and R buttons, then it's a pain. There's also no L2 or R2 button, you have to hold select and press L or R to activate those.

    Task Type (TT) is an alternative CPU Scheduler for linux.

    Project mention: Pop!_OS Linux gets better game performance and desktop responsiveness | | 2022-02-03

    I don’t understand how ananicy-cpp is better than the TT CPU Scheduler, which I’ve been using for a while on Arch and loving. Why’d they write their own instead of using TT?

    Project mention: disfetch - POSIX Shell release | | 2022-01-07
  • linux-cachyos

    Project mention: Any differences between DXVK_FRAME_RATE, mangohud's fps_limit, libstrangle, and gamescope's -r, especially in regards to input lag and frame stability? | | 2022-03-17

    in regards to that link, it looks like that person was running a cachyos kernel, ive never ran this kernel though but again any one of these kernels should be better than the default kernel.
