!!!CUPS Printing system

!!!Comes with apache-2.0.54

The latest release of apache2 to date.

!!!Security conscious

Services do not start automatically after a sytem installation. The user has
to configure particular service(s) to start intentionally so that
(s)he knows which services are running on his/her machine.
This minimizes a risk of having security holes on unused
and unintentionally invoked services becoming targets for attacks.

All the packages are built with the -fstack-protector option where
possible, which is provided by a ssp patch available at
(http://www.research.ibm.com/trl/projects/security/ssp/) on gcc.


SELinux (Security-Enhanced Linux) can be applied when selected in the installer.
