TC10 Kernel
« on: March 21, 2019, 01:26:16 AM »
Hi!
I've found that TC10 kernel was compiled without CONFIG_EXT4_FS_SECURITY which severely cripples functionality of xattr on EXT filesystems. Can you please compile future kernel versions with it?

Xattrs/ACLs have been disabled since they're so rarely used, being bloat for most users. So I'm not sure about this; it's fairly easy to customize the kernel for specific use cases.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

I'm with curaga on this.

TC is purposely small, any unnecessary bloat should stay away.

There are plenty of server distros available, if you specifically need all the security bells & whistles, or you can recompile a kernel to suit your particular needs.
AMD, ARM, & Intel.
