Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 3.18.1!

Posted Today at 03:18 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.1 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk, SlackEX and Exton|Defender. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 3.18.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.18.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released 20141216.

Passing some mplayer options to smplayer from command line

Posted Today at 01:56 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated Today at 02:54 PM by the dsc

Smplayer apparently doesn't have full "command line compatibility" with mplayer (I think it should have something like "--mplayercommands"), you'd have to go to the GUI's options and set permanent options for mplayer there, which won't always be the ideal for command line scriptery.

But as it's often the case with many things in life, it can be fixed with some ugly hack.

Basically you change the mplayer executable to a script, which in turn can have...

Hardware issues

Posted 12-13-2014 at 04:25 PM by onebuck
Updated 12-15-2014 at 12:04 PM by onebuck (typo)

I contacted Dell.com via chat to get a replacement card. The rep replied it would cost $99 for the card. I asked him if the unit supported Bluetooth? He stated no! I asked for a compatible device that supported through 'N' and support Bluetooth. He came back with a device that met these specs for...
