That's worth reading. Note in particular the issues that are caused by the Arch implementation.

I believe, though I can't speak for damentz, that stuff like grsecurity are contrary to the primary purpose of liquorix, which is to be a fast, responsive desktop kernel, which works very well for end users. You might want to review your kernel requirements and pick which you want, fast, responsive, supports all desktop standard features, OR locked down and secure. I don't believe the two cases are compatible.

real security always involves compromise and loss of functionality, just look at openbsd as a good example, where security is always favored over features and convenience.
