The setup on my primary work machine, an Acer Aspire V3 771g required a production ready environment. LUKS provides full-disk encryption, exactly what a security/privacy conscious persona like me needs. On top of that, I simply can’t miss the best file system on earth, or shorter; ZFS which keeps my data/work safe and reproducible. Combine all that with a lightweight Linux distribution like Xubuntu, and you’re ready to go.
You’ll need a 64bit OS, a LiveCD of your prefered OS, a CPU with AES capabilities, enough RAM and media (CD, USB stick…) to temporary store your LiveCD image.
- 1 internal 500GB Harddrive
- 1 external 500GB USB Drive
- 1 8GB USB storage device
- 1 LiveCD holding Xubuntu
- Intel i5 with AES capabilities and 8GB of RAM
- SWAP configured as ZVOL (ZFS Volume)
I won’t waste neither my time nor your time on how to burn…
