Yes i'd like to know how you patched postfix so "local" wouldn't segault
when compiled with a hardened GCC.

Betreff: Re: Status of HLFS project
I have already developed a pretty stable HLFS (ie. I have not found a bug
Have a look at http://www.secure-slinux.org.
Basically it is based on HLFS SVN-20060717 with kernel updated to
188.8.131.52 and grsecurity
updated to 2.1.9-184.108.40.206.
There are a few bugs fixed in the book. It would be a matter of a few hours
to list them here in the mailing list.
It has a lot of features added and lots of packages from BLFS run on it with
no problem at all, including XOrg, XFCE, Firefox, postfix, fcron, etc. Of
course for a base HLFS we don't need those packages.
A slightly older version (however with little change) has been running for
over half a year on a production server. No problems either.
If there is any interest, I could post those changes!
