  1. http://www.tldp.org/.../slackware.html SLACKWARE (1997) I do not think it is a good idea to include qoutes when posting article links in these threads. If folks are interested in the subjects then they will click the link and read the article. Also I am not a fan of teasers and trailers, where is the mystery in that. Dive and and live the experience. however this is just too good a piece of history to not show. IF YOU FIND A DECENT RELEVANT ARTICLE PLEASE DO POST
  2. Problem SOLVED! Just did a fresh install of slackware, and find I have a lot to learn. I downloaded and burned the ISO to a USB Stick. Booted up and installed using the text install. Haven't done that since about version 6 of Victor OS. Got it installed the KDE version. Booted it up and logged in as root. Used startx and got into KDE desktop. I've tried to add a user called mel, but can't find where to do it. I've tried several different places, but no luck. Where's that Slacker Eric? Help! Guess I just have to get use to the menu system in KDE. I haven't used KDE for years probably around 20

  4. --- Well, it's come to this... I've been using Chromium in Slackware64-14.1 for quite a few years, but last October/November a new version came out that just refuses to run on my system. It crashes about 15 seconds after startup with "segmentation fault" error. I've spent quite a bit of time troubleshooting this. I run .txz SlackBuilds from Alien Bob's (+Eric Hameleers) repos. The last version that can run on my system is chromium-52.0.2743.82-x86_64-1alien. I thought maybe that I would wait a few more versions since this problem started to try it again. Well, today I installed
  5. So, I haven't been able to use Google Chrome or Chromium for about 6 or so weeks in my Slackware 14.1 installation on my main system. This all started when Google Chrome and Chromium both went from the last 52.xx version to the newer 53.xx version. I use the SlackBuild script provided by Pat V. in the Slackware repos/extras directory to build a compatible .txz installer for my Slackware using a .deb Google Chrome download. I use Alien Bob's (Eric Hameleers) already built .txz from his repos for Chromium. In both cases, building/installing goes fine. The problem is that when the apps are st
  6. http://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=article&item=arch_2012_linuxdistros&num=1 This shoot out is almost a year old but I thought it would be of interest. I hesitated posting as Arch is not a clear cut winner by any means. Though it does in the main kick Ubuntus butt, well it is more of a playful kick in the pants really.
  7. Gee, where's Eric been all afternoon and evening? He's probably had his head buried in that Cisco text book, I'll bet. Well, you'd be wrong, capacitor breath. He was actually attempting to recover his main and laptop installations of Slackware after they crashed and burned from an update earlier today. Weeeeeeeeee! As some of you may know, I've been running Current since upgrading from 13.37 earlier last year. Sadly, an update that came out today (numerous updates/upgrades, actually) did not play well with my main nor my laptop systems. I was somehow able to recover the lappy, but the
  8. OK, I'm now running GRUB from Slackware. It controls my MBR and boots all my operating systems on my main machine, with the exception of the soon-to-be plowed under borked Arch. Here's how I did it: GRUB (0.97) on Slackware - Build GRUB from SlackBuild in /Extras or download from SlackyEU (http://repository.sl...ub-legacy/0.97/ --> works on 14 current also) - Make sure to have a boot disk available (just in case) - Remove LILO if it was previously used as the bootloader on the system > #slackpkg remove lilo - Install GRUB on system > #installpkg grub-legacy

    Deluge - Bittorrent Client

    I needed to torrent something earlier and I was in Arch. I didn't realize that I had not installed a bittorrent client in Arch before, so I had to snoop around a bit. I settled on Deluge. It seems to work really well and has a neat, efficient interface. I liked it so much, I'm building it for Slackware, too. Anyone here use this app? http://deluge-torrent.org/
  10. On the 28th of September, Slackware Linux Project released Slackware 14. On the 29th of September Debian released Debian 6.0.6 - Squeeze. Visit the websites of these two oldest and, in my opinion, finest GNU/Linux operating systems in existence for more information and the official release announcements. Have fun! http://www.slackware.com/ http://www.debian.org/

  14. I did not know that now Puppy Linux is based on Slackware. I have not tested it, but I'm sure it is a lot better now than before. I always preferred DSL over Puppy. Maybe that is not the case anymore. Here is where I heard the old "news" http://linuxblog.dar...t-but-same.html
