  • libcon

    Library for making programs run with an unspecified MCS category

    By default, the Makefile for this handles everything except installing selinux-targeted-setup, relabeling the filesystem, and - after installing libcon.so - running the following and having the DE export LD_PRELOAD=libcon.so:

  • AdGuardHome

    Network-wide ads & trackers blocking DNS server

    I didn't use a VPN, but I recently setup AdGuard Home as a DNS sinkhole to block Ads, trackers and malware from the Internet. A more popular choice is Pi-Hole but to run it in openSUSE you need Docker/Podman. I am still undecided on whether PiHole or AdGuard is better for me. Also you need to open some firewall ports for them to work.
