Hi,

I'm currently setting up a Pegasos II PPC and thought about using PAX & Co. But there are no "pegasos-hardened-dev-sources". Can the normal PAX patch be applied to the pegasos kernel? PAX should be quite platform independant, right?

Or what do you suggest to make the box more secure(*)? Of course, PPC is already more secure than x86 due to the distribution of the architecture - but that's a factor I don't want to rely on ;-)

Thanks

(*) Perhaps specific CFLAGS/LDFLAGS etc?

If I'm not mistaken, you can use hardened-dev-sources as the ppc tree was merged with the main tree. I've compiled it on a ppc 750, but don't have much experience with it.

Oh... You're right - thanks (ppc->gentoo).

Hmm. But what are the pegasos-sources for? Why are the still there? The ppc-sources point to the gentoo-sources. But there is still a specific pegasos-tree...

Maybe it's there for nostalgic purposes or for the POP people or some such?
