    SAStk - Installation Problem


    Hi all,

    I am running slackware 9.1, kernel version 2.6.9, and I just tried to ./install.sh SAStk. When the menu came up it said it did not support version 'Slackware Slackware'.

    The docs say that SAStk was tested on an x86 machine running Slack 8.0.

    Anyone know what might be going wrong?

    I missed it in the docs, but SAStk only works with slack 8.1 : \

    Could anyone reccomend any good resources or tutorials for hardening security in slackware 9.1?

    SAStk did not last long, the project died a short while after it started. So forget about that. Some general security tips:
    - keep your system up to date and install security patches released by Slackware
    - install only software you need, remove things you don't need or use
    - disable services you don't use (look at /etc/inetd.conf and /etc/rc.d)
    - disable root login on sshd
    - do not login as root, you always can use the su - command when needed
    - check your logfiles
    - install and use rkhunter ( http://www.rootkit.nl ) to check whether your system is compromized
    - check security sites about vulnerabilities
    - ...
