I wish I had all the Google articles to support this post but I did not make notes sorry but here is a summary as I see it.

Posted 04-18-2013 at 01:07 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 04-18-2013 at 10:44 PM by the dsc

I'm not suggesting it's really preferable in any situation or in any specific situation, I just found myself in a "what the hell" point and thought it worth a try, and it worked.

I've found that the program handbrake can handle that easily, so I decided to install. Unfortunatelly it's only on Debians unnofficial multimedia repository, which can...

Run your Slackware 64bit system even better with the latest kernel!

Posted 04-15-2013 at 02:25 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.0 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk , SlackEX, Exton|Defender and Exton-Slack. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel 3.2.29 huge. “My” kernel 3.8.7-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.8.7 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released 20130412.
