Hardened environment: GRSecurity + VMWare Server

After a common install of vmware-server...

GRSecurity + Java = Killed + Headup = Running App

When we work with hardened kernels and tools like grsecurity and PaX, we faced to problems like:

Timezone configuration, MX guide.

This guide is to learn how to set correctly the timezone in a Gentoo Linux and Mexico/General timezone.

First copy or link the proper zone to localtime:

pluton ~ # ln -sf /usr/share/zoneinfo/Mexico/General /etc/localtime
pluton ~ # ls -l /etc/localtime
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 23 Jun  6 18:13 /etc/localtime -> /usr/share/zoneinfo/GMT

Now specify your timezone:

Install IcePHP using Ice-3.4.1

First you need to install the Ice libs.

zeus ~ # emerge Ice -av
These are the packages that would be merged, in order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild   R   ] dev-libs/Ice-3.4.1  USE="ncurses python -debug -doc -examples -mono -ruby -test" RUBY_TARGETS="ruby18" 0 kB

Total: 1 package (1 reinstall), Size of downloads: 0 kB

Would you like to merge these packages? [Yes/No] 

And then copy the compressed file in a safe and different place, then go there and expand the file.

Setup MX records with tinydns or djbdns and gmail

Just modify the data file to look like this one.

evo ~ # vi /bla/bla/bla/tinydns-IPX/root/data
# myowndomain.com's MX Servers

Install grub in a HP Proliant Server

Edit the file /boot/grub/device.map to look like this

(fd0) /dev/fd0
(hd0) /dev/cciss/c0d0

Run grub like this:

hercules ~ # /sbin/grub --batch --device-map=/boot/grub/device.map --config-file=/boot/grub/grub.conf --no-floppy

grub shell:

grub> root (hd0,0)
grub> setup (hd0)
grub> quit
