A few sites require the the newer version of Adobe Flash with the Pepper API.

This is included in the closed Chrome browser package, but it can also be used with the open source Chromium browser from which Chrome is derived. The Pepper API is not supported by Firefox.

There are packages available for some distros, but it can also be installed manually.

First download the current Chrome package to suit your architecture, eg:

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest kernel – 3.9.6!

Posted 06-16-2013 at 09:27 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit 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 huge. “My” kernel 3.9.6-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.9.6 is the latest stable kernel available from Released 20130613.

Feature OVERVIEW for the Linux 3.9 kernel

Unfortunately, for the GUI stuff the file sets are getting rather large. It's only 12K as a gzipped tar but uncompressed it's big enough to make the blog choke, even as an sfxz compressed self extractor.

How to kill those Zombies

Posted 06-13-2013 at 03:22 PM by rtmistler

When a process has ended, signals are emitted to it's parent to indicate that the process is done. This does not delete the process however, information about the process remains with the system until such time as the parent checks that signal. The process becomes a zombie until the exit signal is checked.

The reason for this is closure.

Rather than have that process go away and never give an understanding as to why it went away, it stays as a zombie so that the parent...
