Slackware-14.1-Hacks-ClamAV/ClamTk

Posted 05-30-2014 at 08:08 PM by arniekat

ClamAV is an Open Source anti-virus application and ClamTk is the Graphical User Interface for ClamAV.

Before creating the clamav package or installing the package set, create the clamav user and group:

You need to create a "clamav" user and group - SlackBuilds.org suggests uid=210 and gid=210.

# groupadd -g 210 clamav
# useradd -g clamav -s /bin/false -u 210 clamav

Compile the following from SlackBuilds.org in the following...

Possible key mechanism to disable xscreensaver automatically when watching youtube and the like

Posted 05-29-2014 at 08:07 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I haven't even tried it yet, it just looks like a good candidate method to mess with eventually:

Code:
top p $mplayer_pid -bd 0.25 n 3 | grep $mplayer_pid | awk '{print $9}'

Liquorix kernel seems more responsive than Debian's default

Posted 05-28-2014 at 10:46 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I'm somewhat skeptical of the tuned-kernel movement, so I didn't install it expecting to make my OS "fly" or anything. It just happened that recently there had been some weird kernel error messages ("perf samples too long"), and, related to that or not, the OS would become sluggish with lots of read-or-write activity (on my old HDD that must be really slow, to add to sluggishness). Apparently you can sort of solve it in a sysctl-like way, printing a "0" to some file/parameter,...
