PinguyOS 14.04.4-1 & Pinguy Builder Update

Filed under

I have updated the Pinguy Builder so it now has full support for UEFI on 32-bit distros. This includes off-line install of the UEFI Grub. Version 4.* has beta support for 16.04. This is still very much a work in progress.

There is Meltdown mitigation for Intel CPUs via a KPTI implementation similar to Linux, the Kernel Page Table Isolation. There is also a PCID (Process Context Identifier) optimization for Intel Westmere CPUs and newer, just as was also done on Linux.
