Run your Slackware installation with the latest kernel - 4.9!

Posted 12-23-2016 at 02:47 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

NEWS 161223
Kernel 4.9-x86_64-exton is my newest Slackware kernel. The stable kernel 4.9 was released by Kernel.org on December 11, 2016.

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware Current (14.2) and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk and SlackEX. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 4.9-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 4.9 is the latest kernel...

What's happening?

Posted 12-22-2016 at 08:41 AM by masinick

I have not posted to the blog here, from what the entries indicate, in over SIX years.

I tend to read and write a lot more Email, and I've also participated in news groups and forums for decades, preceding many of the collections of information, news, and collaboration, and probably before over half of the current generation of frequent social media participants were born.

I'm still very active in technology, but as you might expect, the things that occupy my time change...

ExTiX 17.0, Build 161221, with KDE 4.16 together with KDE Frameworks 5.26.0, Refracta Tools and kernel 4.9 (latest)

Posted 12-21-2016 at 04:47 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have made a new version of ExTiX – The Ultimate Linux System. I call it ExTiX 17.0 KDE Live DVD. (The previous version was 16.4 from 160731). The best thing with ExTiX 17.0 is that while running the system live (from DVD/USB) or from hard drive you can use Refracta Tools (pre-installed) to create your own live installable Ubuntu system.

Used KERNEL
My special kernel 4.9.0-11-exton corresponding Kernel.org’s kernel 4.9 – latest as of 161221. You can download “my” kernel if...

Posted 12-17-2016 at 08:42 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled yet another Ubuntu/Debian kernel for 64 bit systems. This time kernel 4.9.0-11-exton, equivalent to Kernel.org’s latest stable kernel 4.9 released 161211.

What’s new in Linux kernel 4.9?

Install kernel 4.9.0-11-exton in Ubuntu/Debian based distributions
My self-compiled Ubuntu kernels can be used in all types of modern Ubuntu systems, including Mint. They can even be used in Debian Jessie (Debian 8.6) and Debian Stretch (upcoming Debian 9)....

Bad documentation?

Posted 12-15-2016 at 12:55 PM by peonuser

Sometimes you just want to tear your hair out when the documentation of a product is WRONG. Something I ran into recently when trying to attach an enc28j60 from Hanrun to my genuine Arduino. I have used the ethernet shield on the Arduino without a hitch. So I supposed there would be no problem again... So I thought. Followed the map for hooking the two devices together as follows:

VCC - 3.3V
GND - GND
SCK - Pin 13
SO - Pin 12
SI - Pin 11
