The new version of paxd can now apply per-user exceptions via a user service. It automatically updates them when executables are updated/created so there is no need to manually run a script when Steam updates / installs a game and so on.

This is how I got Spotify to work (with music too!)

Also, cannot load, even with these flags set

Does anyone have PAX flags to get Spotify working?

Does anyone have PAX fags to get Spotify working?

thestinger commented on 2014-05-31 01:40

In order to work around the lack of Pacman hooks, I wrote a trivial daemon to watch for Pacman transactions and re-apply exceptions. I've included some more exceptions and removed many of the no longer needed RANDMMAP cases (SpiderMonkey used to require it).

You'll still need linux-pax-flags for files in home directories because it wouldn't be sane for a daemon running as root to be attempting to set those.

thestinger commented on 2014-04-21 02:19

Never mind what I said earlier here. The linux-grsec package can start using a permissive default-on RBAC policy to set these exceptions. This package will still be required for linux-pax, which I don't personally have an interest in.

thestinger commented on 2014-04-18 00:04

It would be nice to have this changed to using only extended attributes rather than paxctl. The extended attributes always work and leave the binaries untouched, along with not requiring an extra tool (just setfattr/getfattr).

Of course, you'll need to remove all the existing paxctl flags as long as linux-grsec is compiled with PaX ELF support.

aura requires a paxctl setting as well:

paxctl -cPerMS /usr/bin/aura

test0 commented on 2013-09-27 08:28

paxctl also has the problem of not working when binaries are in use. To my knowledge, setfattr has no such problem since the binary itself remains untouched.

For python-powerline-git to work, MPROTECT has to be disabled for /usr/bin/python:

paxctl -cPemRSX /usr/bin/python

kernel.grsecurity.tpe_restrict_all needs to be disabled as well. orcexec might need that setting, too.

test0 commented on 2013-09-25 23:12

The Steam config should somehow go through all users' home directories and adjust the PaX flags there. I needed to use:

HOME=/home/test0 linux-pax-flags

…to get Steam to work.

Dropbox can be made to work like this:

paxctl -cPemRSX /opt/dropbox/dropbox

test0 commented on 2013-09-25 22:04

Using xattrs throughout would also have the advantage of not tripping off checksum-based security measures like IMA, tripwire etc.

test0 commented on 2013-09-25 22:02

Skype cannot be modified, so I had to set the appropriate xattr like this:

setfattr -n user.pax.flags -v PemRS /usr/lib*/skype/skype

(-X and -x are not honored anymore, anyway.)

Trampoline emulation (-E) is actually unnecessary! I also was able to disable it for the vim line below, which should now read:

paxctl -cPemRSX `which vim`

test0 commented on 2013-09-25 20:16

I had to use

paxctl -cPEmRXS `which vim`

to be able to use vim again, possibly because I have recompiled it with +mzscheme.

Also, if possible, setting flags via extended attributes instead of modifying the content of executables would be welcomed.

Thanks for your help and sorry for my lag. I wanted to integrate your changes when I saw, that - at least for now - go binaries come with a PT_PAX_FLAGS header and MPROTECT, RANDEXEC and EMUTRAMP off. For me it seems, there are currently no changes necessary.

It is a little odd, that space indentation does not work in YAML but it is - at least in the YAML specs - desired behaviour. I did a workaround for spaces to work in another project and I will look into it. This would make config editing a little more user-friendly.

Anonymous comment on 2013-03-29 07:15


Here is a (partial) config file for the go compiler. Some other binaries might need to be added though:

- /usr/bin/go
- /usr/lib/go/pkg/tool/linux_amd64/cgo

As a side note, the configuration parsing fails if tabs are replaced by spaces (before the '-' for example):

/usr/share/linux-pax-flags/go.conf: did not find expected key while parsing a block mapping at line 2 column 1

Not sure if it is the desired behavior, as a lot of people religiously replace tabs by spaces :-)


echoblack commented on 2013-03-24 04:23

phects: Well I use to have a CentOS server. however I found a new VPS host that is KVM based. I now use Archlinux on my VPS, Home server, and laptop. I see now though that binaries being located in different locations on different distros is where all the work would be anyway.

Ya, I filed a bug report on about polkitd. They didn't understand what I was saying and closed the but without fixing it. It is major problem. Polkitd has had memory exploits reported. This daemon is also responsible for security settings arg. On the plus side, it dose seem to run as the logged in user.

phects commented on 2013-03-23 18:15

You're right. I made sudo optional. The old behaviour is used, if PAX_FLAGS_SUDO is set.

s4ndman commented on 2013-03-22 07:31

I agree with s1gma, i dont use sudo and had to manually modify the script to get it work.

Anonymous comment on 2013-03-22 06:40


Why use 'sudo' in linux-pax-flags, as it will anyway usually run as root (in the linux-grsec.install script) ?

Or, you could add 'sudo' as a dependency (as some of use do not have it installed), but it seems a little overkill.

Thanks for your package !

phects commented on 2013-03-19 10:33

That's good to hear! Do you use linux-pax-flags on another distribution? On Arch Linux at least polkitd needs flags set on a PaX kernel (which is not exactly ideal).

echoblack commented on 2013-03-19 10:19

The problem with Freemind "may" be a result of the disabling of JIT. "Just In time Compiling" with java. JIT makes java programs run much faster but is a very dangerous thing. There is no way to verify that the code is not modified before execution. However, I thought I read that what happens is the JIT simply dose not work and the java program is run by the JVM like normal i.e. it should not brake anything. BUT, maybe with that program it dose? Or maybe this has nothing to do with it. In any case you could disable it. I think it is in the "Miscellaneous Hardening" options.

As for the suspend... Strange, I use KDE and I have KDE set to do nothing. Then SystemD dose the suspend when I close my laptop lid (by default) and it works fine.

phects: Meh, I no longer have any issue with the ruby. Ruby as it turns out is only 3MB. The main thing was that I didn't want to install ruby on my servers, but it turns out that basically no server software needs any PaX flags anyway. Non that I have run at least.

Anonymous comment on 2013-03-10 02:28

Thanks for the answers,much appreciated

1)About Java, I do have jre7-openjdk. Tried re-installing pax flags but its the same. If I open Freemind in Terminal it says:
ERROR: Your Java VM is not a complete implementation,
to point to such a VM. See the manpage of freemind(1) for details.
Error occurred during initialization of VM

Doesn't happen on default kernel (arch)

2)System Monitor does work as you said
3)Another thing, Gradm, doesn't enable, it says:
Duplicate subject found for "/sbin/shutdown" in role shutdown, on line 287 of /etc/grsec/policy.
"/sbin/shutdown" references the same object as "/sbin/halt" specified on an earlier line.
The RBAC system will not load until this error is fixed.
4)Last thing...Can't hibernate/suspend in Xfce4, going by logout>suspend it's just grayed out. And mounting USB devices it won't let me either.

phects commented on 2013-03-09 09:36

More Answer,

gnome-system-monitor works well with PaX but collides with /proc and /sys access restriction of grsec. The "Resources" tab needs access to /proc/vmstat, which is granted only for users in the proc-trusted group. After adding your user to the group and relogin, the tab should work. Network statistics won't work without root privileges.

phects commented on 2013-03-09 09:26


it possibly does. linux-pax-flags takes care of PaX flags for java. Which VM are you using? I would recommend jdk7-openjdk. Flags for gnome-system-monitor aren't included, yet. I will look into it and include them, if neccessary.

Anonymous comment on 2013-03-09 05:34


If I can't open Freemind(mindmap program, runs on java) in a grsec,pax kernel, does that mean it's because some sort of pax flag?

Can't open gnome-system-monitor too.

duncant commented on 2013-02-28 04:33

Disregard that last comment, I see that it's already in the package. I need to learn to actually check things before commenting.

phects commented on 2013-02-22 08:29

The package is not on github, because I operate my own git server since some time and can not really part with it. The repositories URL is "git://".

Why do you want to rewrite linux-pax-flags? I started in bash and came to the conclusion, that integrating advanced features (like configuration overrides, e.g.) is way to painful with shellscripting. (I thought about using Python for a rewrite, but learning the language not really fascinated me, so I used Ruby.)

I thought of at least seperating the PKGBUILD from the code in the near future. The idea of a website for collecting flags is very good, but I do not think, we need it right now, because there were not that many flag reportings, yet.

An Hardened Arch Linux project or community would be a good starting point for raising our efforts, I think.

Do we maybe want to discuss this further in the bbs?

echoblack commented on 2013-02-22 02:29

Is this package on GitHub or something? I would like to rewrite the front end in Bash. However, I don't want to maintain my own list of programs and the pax-flags they need; nor would it be a good idea for me to do that.

You know what I think would be really cool. Is if I like made a website all about hosting a repository of .conf files for PaX flags. Like make it easy for people to upload new flags and comment on flags... maybe email up-stream notifying them of improper memory usage, so someone can fix it upstream.... I need flesh out that idea.

Then end result is that anyone on any distro could write the equivalent of your linux-pax-flags program and/or modify their package manager to auto-set pax-flags.

I have rewritten linux-pax-flags in Ruby, because it makes a cleaner configuation and funny things like stopping and starting a daemon before and after changing the flags of it's binary possible.

I want to wait here for comments some time before releasing the rewritten version.

You can look at the code in "git://".

/usr/bin/python2 should also be added to the MPROTECT off section. Kupfer (which depends on python2) won't run with it on because it exits with a memory error.

phects commented on 2012-09-06 16:47

Just running "paxctl -Cm /usr/lib32/skype/skype" does not work for me (on x86_64).

duncant commented on 2012-09-06 16:40

Skype does some sort of weird self-check that fails if its header is converted. You have to add a new header with the capital C flag instead of converting the existing header with small c. It just needs MPROTECT off, BTW.

phects commented on 2012-09-06 16:28

You got skype running? It's got a PT_GNU_STACK header now, which is convertible but skype crashes on start even without any PaX flags enabled.

duncant commented on 2012-09-06 16:01

The Skype binary has moved from /usr/bin/skype to /usr/lib32/skype/skype

You could also do them as pSmXEr instead of pSmXER, just tested, and whether it's r or R doesn't change anything on my end.
So guess that the other user you were refering to didn't have PAGEEXEC or SEGEXEC (that would proberbly make it psmXEr, if you take SEGEXEC into account too) enabled then ?

As far as I could see from bug reports on other distro's it's needed so that the grub binaries can execute it's own stack.

1.0.18: Skype, Java 7, glxspheres, okular (thanks to duncant).

+ /opt/java/bin/java
+ /opt/java/bin/javac
+ /usr/bin/okular
+ /usr/bin/glxspheres
+ /usr/bin/skype

duncant commented on 2012-08-07 01:51

And another binary...

/usr/bin/skype needs to have `paxctl -Cm` run on it. It has to be the capital C flag. (I know skype's ludicrously insecure and closed-source and whatnot, but I figured I'd mention it)

duncant commented on 2012-08-07 01:44

The AUR packages jre and jdk install java to /opt/java.

I've also discovered that the KDE application /usr/bin/okular (the PDF reader) requires MPROTECT off. Also, /usr/bin/glxspheres requires MPROTECT off

1.0.17: MPROTECT off for KDE binaries.

phects commented on 2012-08-06 09:53

Thanks very much! I added the KDE executables for now. Which Java packages install to "/opt/java"?

duncant commented on 2012-08-04 22:11

Also, java and javac can sometimes be found at /opt/java/bin/java and /opt/java/bin/javac so you might want to add those.

duncant commented on 2012-08-04 07:41

/usr/bin/kmail needs MPROTECT off (but can have RANDEXEC on)
/usr/bin/kwin needs MPROTECT off
/usr/bin/kdeinit4 needs MPROTECT off

All the other KDE programs that I've tried seem to work well.

phects commented on 2012-08-02 11:37

Thanks for your help! Unfortunately I could not test the flags for grub by myself. I'm careful, because someone reported other flags for /usr/bin/grub-script-check (RANDMMAP off) and /usr/sbin/grub-probe (MPROTECT off).
