Hi Patrick!!! I can build debian packages from source,at least I think I can I have zero experience from building from source sadly but if its easy i can do it for you you can either mentor me yourself on how to do it or if you think its best I can research on google and i would also never charge you or anything like that and I personally think we should be paying you for the countless of hours of hard work you put into this OS not the other way around.

And its quite interesting you are choosing to attempt to make Grsecurity as our hardening software for the kernel,I think you made a great pick heres a comparison of the three major hardening softwares https://grsecurity.net/compare.php it might be outdated though but still Grsecurity has some good hardening features that make us security enthusiasts quite excited,what made you pick Grsecurity?I remember that Gresecurity was far too difficult to put into Debian so we decided to pick apparmor.

Anyway Patrick take care!


That’s super cool. If someone does the Grsec thing I am testing that for certain. I tried installing the debian unstable grsec kernel into jessie which was a failure due to package conflicts. I wish I had read these tickets I would have known there was already a package in debian-backports. (I compiled own kernel on debian in the past but had issues)

I tried arch linux in the past to get grsecurity because it has a decent linux-grsec package, but the rest of the distro was so unstable (as in package breaking) I had to give it up. Debian unstable was also too unstable (as in package breaking and crashing) especially in a VM. Getting grsec into debian stable and whonix with a good paxctl set is the best outcome for everyone. I know also subgraph OS is doing that and Tails was interested, now I’m hopeful for debian…
