So I'm installing 4.7 I usually have / and /home on separate partitions. / is 10gb but it seems a little much. For those of you who have / and /home separated how much space do you have partitioned for /?


using /dev/crypto doesn't strike me as the fastest model for encryption. Simply because I my intuition would suggest that context switching, e.i. changing your memory maps and flushing your cache to enter kernel-space would be too much overhead. Even, I would presume, if a hardware crypto device were behind /dev/crypto. What is everyone's opinions on this? Should crypto be in userspace where it doesn't necessarily cause expensive context switches or should is it best to use /dev/crypto? Perhaps there could be a hybrid approach where your crypto framework uses user-space crypto until you reach some threshold where it then starts using /dev/crypto.

Well here's a patch to aucat to have it not fade the outstream when adding another stream- that kindof annoyed me.

< 	unsigned n;
< 	n = 0;
< 		n++;
< 	}
< 	LIST_FOREACH(buf, &p->ibuflist, ient) {
< 		weight = ADATA_UNIT / n;
> 		weight = ADATA_UNIT;

This patches /usr/src/usr.bin/aucat/aproc.c


Anyone have any experience with aucat?

I'm trying to use aucat with ekiga. I run

aucat -l -m duplex

and use the "sndio" sound option in ekiga. Ekiga says it can't open the device because it's busy :(

Anyone able to do this?

New server recommendations

I recently acquired 1U of datacenter rackspace and I was looking to buy a box to run my web/mail server (currently colo'd).

I'm not hosting anything crazy, just a couple medium traffic web sites (apache/php), a cvs, mailserver (qmail) with a few users, snort, sql, etc. I'm hoping to stay under a grand (with drives). Raid would be nice.

Any vendor/configuration suggestions?
