Build 141220 of SlackEX 14.1 live USB with kernel 3.18.1

Updated Today at 09:11 AM by exton

New features in version 141220 of SlackEX
SlackEX build 141220 comes as a ZIP-file for direct installation to a USB stick. I have replaced kernel 3.16.1-x86_64-exton with kernel 3.18.1-x86_64-exton with support for “everything”.

KDE is downgraded to version 4.10.5 from version 4.11.1. All other component software is also upgraded to the latest Slackware version by now. I may mention in particular GParted 0.17.0 (latest, not in Slackware’s repositories), VirtualBox 4.3.20...

Scaling out my Banana Pi server cluster

Posted Yesterday at 08:36 AM by Pyplate
Updated Yesterday at 03:14 PM by Pyplate

I've updated Pyplate to support multiple sites on a single server. Each site has its own Pyplate CMS directory, its own web root directory and its own set of tables in the database. The tables for each site are prefixed with the domain name of the site (with '_' replacing '.').

The database is stored on a MySQL database cluster using master/slave replication, so the tables for each site are accessible from each database server node.

I've dropped the idea of using...

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

Posted 12-18-2014 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 12-18-2014 at 01:56 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 12-18-2014 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...
