[howto] Compile 2.6.31 Kernel in Slackware 13.0

This is the way I did it, and hopefully should work for you as well.

Open terminal and login as root [or if you'd prefer, use sudo in every step.]

 # cd /usr/src

    # wget ‘′

    # tar xvfj linux-2.6.31.tar.bz2
After it’s extracted remove the previous symlink.

 # rm -rf linux

    # ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.6.31 /usr/src/linux

This has been a busy week. I had a couple of evening meetings, so the couple of hours of post-installation tweaking I usually do with any new operating system installation (including, maybe even especially, Windows) had to be spread out over a couple of evenings.

My post-installation routine is nearly done and the laptop is feeling like a slightly faster, more modern version of an old familiar home.

The major disappointment is Wicd. I can't seem to get it to connect to...

Originally posted in my BLOG.

First things first, let me once again tell you I've become a huge fan of openSUSE. it's absolutely everything I look for in a Desktop OS.

Now I'm gonna write my experience down. A few slight quirks, which was not SUSE's fault but since I'm new to it [ well I used it a year ago, but that was only for a month], it was mainly because I wasn't aware of SUSE's way...

Batch-fixing symlink targets

Posted 08-28-2010 at 06:08 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Tags batch, symlink

Sometimes you move the folder to which lots of symlinks were pointing, or something to that effect, and you want to simply "edit" these symlinks rather than recreating them pointing the correct new location. That's how it can be done with one line:

find /place-where-the-null-symlinks are/ -type l | while read nullsymlink ; 
do wrongpath=$(readlink "$nullsymlink") ; 
right=$(echo "$wrongpath" | sed s'|/whatever/is/the/old-wrong/path|/correct-new/path|')
