slackware 14.1/ xorg-server rendering issues

Posted 12-29-2013 at 05:39 PM by Rod3775

It seems that several packages in 14.1 are not quite ready for prime time.

upower doesn't deal with the rearrangement of usb-hid devices in /sys/class. The problem is in the udev files in the package, not the code. The latest source on the web is OK, but the slackpkg is a couple of revisions older.

GTK-3 doesn't draw non-sensitive buttons correctly.

But the biggest problem seems to be with the new (version 14) xorg-server. There was a big push for xcb...

ExTiX 14 is currently in 14th place on Distrowatch.com’s “popularity” list (for the past seven days). Prior to such established greats like KNOPPIX, Lubuntu, Xubuntu, Arch, PCLinuxOS, CentOS, Ubuntu Gnome, Gentoo, Slackware, SUSE, etc.

I can’t help being a little pleased.

ExTiX 14 on DistroWatch.com

Posted 12-25-2013 at 09:21 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

ExTiX 14 has been on DistroWatch.com since yesterday. It helps. I mean, over 2100 downloads in one day! Only from Sourceforge.net. How many people have downloaded the ISO file from the Swedish Linux Society server I do not know.

I recently posted about carving out /30 vlans for the Windows machines on my network at home. It's been working well, so I decided to carve up the remaining network to provide some layer of separation between devices.

My wife picked up a Buffalo N600 dual-band wireless access point for me recently. I have dd-wrt running on my old AP (because open-wrt won't run on it), so I figured I'd flash the Buffalo with openwrt and roll with it. I configured both 2.4 and 5.0 GHz bands with...

ExTiX Linux 64 bit – now in version 14

Posted 12-23-2013 at 10:25 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I’ve made a major update of ExTiX Linux Live DVD today (131223). Therefore I’ve changed the version number from 13 to 14. (For 2014).

ExTiX version 14 is the “best” version ever. Here’s why:

NEWS ABOUT ExTiX 14 131223
1. The ExTiX ISO is now a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred (copied) to a USB pen drive. You can then even run ExTiX from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence!...
