Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 3.16.1!

Posted 08-23-2014 at 01:57 AM 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 3.16.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.16.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released (20140814).

HyperTransport Sync Flood Error, 3.* series kernel , MSI mobo

Posted 08-22-2014 at 04:13 AM by Yury_T

After installing the slackware 14.1/amd64 (kernel 3.*) on the machine with MSI K8-something motherboard (integrated nvidia adapter, nouveaux nvidia driver), I began to experience freezes after start of Firefox, of all things. Memtest showed no faults, voltage tuning didn't help.

The problem has been (seemingly) solved by setting the on-board video adapter memory window size (or whatever this setting is called) to the minimal 16Mb (the default was 64Mb).

Posted 08-21-2014 at 08:58 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have made a new version of the extra version of DebEX, wich I call DebEX KDE Live DVD. (The first version is from 140626). It’s a pure Debian system. I.e.: There are no Ubuntu or Kubuntu elements involved. DebEX KDE uses KDE 4.13.3 as Desktop environment. (The latest stable version of KDE). Study the full package list.

Note: There are two versions of DebEX. DebEX Barebone with Xfce 4.10.1 (build 140819)...

Setup FTP server using VsFtp and Configure Secure FTP connections on Ubuntu 14.04 Server

Posted 08-20-2014 at 10:13 AM by sridhar11

vsftpd is a GPL licensed FTP server for UNIX systems, including Linux. It is secure and extremely fast. It is stable. Don't take my word for it, though. Below, we will see evidence supporting all three assertions. We will also see a list of a few important sites which are happily using vsftpd. This demonstrates vsftpd is a mature and trusted solution.

DebEX Barebone build 140819

Posted 08-19-2014 at 12:14 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

The DebEX Barebone ISO is now a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred to a USB pen drive. You can then even run DebEX Barebone from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence! Read this INSTRUCTION. NetworkManager has been removed. It doesn’t go together with Wicd when it comes to configuring wireless networks. I’ve added the applications GParted (partition editor), AbiWord, Icedove (Thunderbird) and AlsaPlayer. Study the...
