Software powering skarnet.org
- The server runs the Linux
operating system. Kernel version:
3.18.48, for x86_64 machines.
- Every package is compiled with and linked against the
musl libc. This site
is glibc-free, and uses no GNU software during its normal
operation. Only for compilation purposes is GNU software
used, namely gcc and GNU make.
- Rather than mainstream, complex pre-packaged software, a combination
of various secure and lightweight programs is used. It includes:
- All the scripts holding it together are written in the
execline language. The server
never spawns a shell unless someone logs into it.
A note on hardware
alyss.skarnet.org is a virtual private server hosted by
Gandi, using the smallest possible
configuration. The kernel is provided by Gandi as part of the basic
infrastructure, and unfortunately cannot be modified; everything
else has been changed, including the init system.
