Chromium 36 upgrade with SSE2 instructions will not execute on Athlon XP 2400+

Posted Yesterday at 05:36 PM by flshope

I have an 11-year-old computer with an AMD Athlon XP 2400+ (32 bit) processor and ASUSTeK Computer A7V8X motherboard. The machine has Ubuntu 12.04 installed.

A few weeks ago I did a routine software update using the Update Manager. The update was to move to Chromium 36 from 34 (there was no version 35 under Ubuntu). Suddenly, Chromium would no longer run, or even start on this machine, though Chromium 36 is working OK on two other newer Ubuntu machines. When executed from the command...

Privilege

I read an article earlier on the privilege that white males enjoy in the US. You can read it here:

To cut to the chase, I'll just say that I really, really wish I would have been born a minority. Female, preferably.

Why? I'm sick of hearing about how privileged I am because I was born the way I was. Perhaps I could then enjoy my successes to their fullest extent without constantly having people (my...

Build 140831 of SlackEX 14.1 live USB with kernel 3.16.1

Posted Yesterday at 12:05 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

New features in version 140831 of SlackEX
SlackEX build 140831 comes as a ZIP-file for direct installation to an USB stick. I have replaced kernel 3.14-x86_64-exton with kernel 3.16.1-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 4.3.14 (latest, not in Slackware’s...

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).
