mr torvalds:


...I'm tired of this 'only my version is correct' crap. The whole and only point of LSM was to get away from that." Linus continued, "I guess I have to merge AppArmor and SMACK just to get this *disease* off the table. You're acting like a string theorist, claiming that t here is no other viable theory out there. Stop it. It's been going on for too damn long."

al la inq:


UBER geek Linus Torvalds is on track to win this year's Dr Spinola cudmugeon of the year award after dubbing people who disagreed with him as "wanking around".

Torvalds waded into the another handbags at dawn fight with security experts over the latest inclusion in the forthcoming 2.6.24 Linux kernal.

The plan is to merge a lump of code called Smack into the kernal which has upset those who view OS security as their number one focus in life.

They fear that Smack will mean that Linux will be locked into the LSM API and would prefer that SELinux would be the sole security architecture.
