Eddie client on Linux

Recommended Posts

I've been running Fedora 22 for a while and had to install beesu in order to get Eddie functioning,however having beesu installed is causing me issues when it comes to  upgrading to Fedora 23.

 

I'm thinking of going to OpenSuse KDE but will I need to install beesu on Open Suse in order to get Eddie working?

 

I'm open to all ideas here as I'm still a Linux noob so the more input the better.

 

Thanks

Thanks for the reply,

 

so you recommend a fresh install everytime there's an OS update if using Fedora?

 

I put OpenSuse in a VM yesterday and didn't see beesu being installed to be able to use the eddie client but that doesn't mean it wasn't in one of the dependencies.

 

I guess with Arch you don't get too many main OS updates?

Debian over Ubuntu for the same "update all the time" reasons.

 

You can take much of this concern out of the loop IF you simply use Debian (you pick your own distro preference) as a host with the Eddie client.  Then you run Linux VM's and any updates on a workspace system never deal with anything "Eddie".

 

Since you are NAT'd to the host you can run anything you want linux version-wise in the virtual machines.  Very smooth and safe way to configure.

I thought  Ubuntu was a Debian spur?

 

I'm thinking maybe I'll put 2 Linux OS on the same drive and have a third partition for storage then I can always have at least one OS functioning and retain access to my files too.

It is a "spur" (your word).  Still, while Ubuntu has a place, it gets tons of updates and many times daily.  Kernel changes all the time.  Debian's team goes about it differently and it updates quite rarely at the kernel levels.  Both have a place but for me I want security and consistency on my HOST OS.  The Debian installer allows for solid control on what gets installed and WHERE.  Especially if you want partition only encryption and don't want to use your entire device.  Just like you suggested in the quote I copied here, I too have at least 3 fully encrypted OS's on my drives/devices.  Within those worlds I have numerous VM's designed for specific missions.  Its easy once you learn to do it.  The Eddie client performs flawlessly with Debian, although in all honesty I still write my own IP table firewall stuff.  I can't bring myself to allow someone else to protect my rear.  It is how I roll.  LOL!

i don't like vms at all, never have never will, if i need something from an update i'll grab the iso and rebuild, how i roll

I might be misunderstanding you but its rare that a distros iso install is up2date. Often there's tons of security patches between iso releases, sometimes even days after release.

 

@OP

Debian is great. My only gripe is debians move to systemd @ version 8. If your hardware is supported by debian 7.8 jump on it.

 

I ended up moving to hardened Gentoo but its not for the faint of heart.

I understand much of your "sentiment" but for my "connectivity mission" the security level I am comfortable with is not available using ANY Linux OS bare metal.  Chaining connected VM's with different internal LAN's and multiple hops/relays cannot be done bare metal.  I still get decent speeds and any damage control becomes a simple task using VM's.

 

I run a couple of bare metal linux systems for my "family machines" and the speed and reliability is supreme.  Wide open and dependable.  Those machines have never seen "AirVpn" though.
