Hi folks! I'm planning on giving my ThinkPad a little upgrade. I'm currently Fedora 22 (upgraded from 20) on a 128GB SSD from Samsung (MZ7PC128HAFU-000L1), which is a little small, especially if you're a FLAC file lover as I am. I'm planning to buy at first an mSATA card of 500 GB and afterwards put in an extra regular SATA disk of 500 GB and put them in RAID-0 using softraid. I'm also planning on doing some kind of Full Disk Encryption. Some RFC's: I'm tinkering to get the Crucial MX200 instead of the Samsung 850 EVO. Where I buy them they are equally priced and the Samsung is rated faster in about every aspect (MX200 is still a LOT faster than my current SSD). But the Samsung 8{4,5}0 are issue prone, apparently. Turning of TRIM would help, AFAICS. But I can't find any reliable source on that (yet?) Do you guys know whether using mdwith a RAID-0 mode will improve performance just a little, or really a lot? And how would you combine btrfs and two high performant SSD's with FDE? Is that btrfs on luks on md, btrfs on luks on LVM, btrfs RAID on two luks partitions, or still something else? I'd say that using the btrfs RAID on two LUKS partitions is the most interesting, but decrypting both partition before being able to boot will be a challenge. I'm also thinking to use LUKS or dm-crypt with an SD-card with a keyfile on it, so I'm not dependent on a passphrase and inserting an SD-card is not as troublesome as tying a passphrase. I'm hoping that /r/linux would want to give comments and critics... So, shoot! submitted by rubdos [link] [comment]

Hi guys, I'm working on a project where we are to compare different OS components between Linux Mac and IBM. The part that I am stuck on is Networking and Protection & security. All I was able to come by so far is general information about the network RedHat network manager. I honestly don't even know how to approach this question or where to start. Any guidance is much appreciated. submitted by coreTMi9 [link] [comment]

I feel like Linux distributions are too cluttered in terms of the filesystem structure. Apps put a binary in /usr/bin, some binaries are in /bin, and it's configuration files are probably somewhere in /var and /etc. I'm quite a control freak to keep my systems clean, and whenever I do pacman -R, I know that probably a lot of files are still somewhere on my SSD that I'll never need again. I thought about maybe packaging desktop apps in Docker-like environments, but that would probably break quickly because those applications expect certain files in certain locations on the filesystem. Is there any solution to keeping your storage clean in such situations? I've tinkered around a bit with overlayfs to spawn a 'clean environment' for each application, but I was hoping something like that already existed. The Mac OS way of having everything in one .app for example seems much cleaner and modular to me. submitted by medEng0 [link] [3 comments]
