Learning to build Linux from scratch

by | Sep 10, 2018

If you’re facing the challenge of building a GNU/Linux system from scratch, there is a distribution that can make things easier for you. Linux From Scratch (LFS) guides you step by step to create a Linux OS from the source code of the packages. This distro receives regular updates as they are implemented in the Linux kernel and in its basic GNU tools.

There is a more specific version of this distribution for those interested in compiling and configuring the graphic system, server tools, window managers, desktops and applications. It is called Beyond Linux From Scratch (BLFS) and both versions are updated at the same time.

Earlier this month the latest version was released: Linux From Scratch 8.3 and Beyond Linux From Scratch 8.3. Among other novelties, it incorporates updates in the base software and improvements in the documentation related to systemd.

The project website includes other subprojects that can help expand knowledge about Linux. For example, Cross Linux From Scratch, which explains the cross-compilation in different architectures or Automated Linux From Scratch, which explains how to automate compilations in LFS and BLFS.

Their main goal was to drive attention to the importance of privacy, user data protection, and compliance of the General Data Protection Regulation (RGPD). It is a regulation characterized by significant fines for non-compliance since its implementation in 2018.

How to avoid issues with virtual machines

Virtualization comes with a wide range of benefits for organizations. It helps cut IT costs and reduces downtime while increasing efficiency and productivity. It also increases the resiliency of networks, primarily when disasters occur, and promotes more green-friendly operations.

However, using virtual machines also comes with a set of downsides. Information security may get compromised, workloads mixed up, separation duties lost, among other issues. It is vital to know how you can get over these problems, and that’s what this article will discuss.

Let’s get started.

Top 5 articles on VDI technology of the year 2021

After the Christmas holidays, we return to our blog posts, looking back and reviewing the most read news during the year that just ended. As you may know, the main topic we deal with is desktop virtualization (VDI), although we also echo articles on virtualization in general, cybersecurity or Open Source that may be interesting for our audience. The news about our UDS Enterprise VDI software, virtual applications and remote access take on special prominence, as well as the announcements related to our partner channel and our technological alliances.
