After restoring my laptop from a not so recent backup I found that it spent about 30 seconds waiting for the suspend/resume device.
Normally the MTU size should be set correctly using Path MTU discovery, but this may not always work.
Having successfully configured a Raspberry Pi as a wireless access point I decided to see if I could use a similar approach to build a transparent Tor proxy.
If at first you don’t succeed try, try again…
There are several ways to check which version of Debian, Ubuntu or Raspbian you are running.
This script will determine what packages you have installed and download a copy of each package to you current folder.
My router doesn’t support IPv6 and I prefer to use the old network device names so I disabled them both by passing ipv6.disable=1 net.ifnames=0 to the kernel when the system boots.
If you want to use the GNU C Compiler then as a minimum you need to install the compiler, help files (which you could argue are optional) and the runtime library.
By default the root password is locked to prevent you from being able to login as root on Debian/Raspbian, and for good reason.
The latest versions of the kernel now rely on the BIOS enumeration of device names which means that the name of the network interface can change depending on your bus configuration (specifically where your network interface is connected).
