Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel 4.4.1!

Posted 02-02-2016 at 08:06 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 02-02-2016 at 08:07 AM by exton (More INFO)

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 Slackwares latest kernel huge. My kernel 4.4.1-exton-huge has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 4.4.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released 20160131.

Whats new in kernel 4.4.1?

Just found out that we can install packages under Red Hat as a group, instead of individual ones, which will be a big time saver, along with trying to remember the name of the individual packages. I've seen a number of tutorials online for this and I think they either fall short or are not clear. So here is my attempt at it and this blog entry assumes the end user has some basic Linux skills and basic knowledge of Red Hat.

Step-by-step instructions on setting up the following:

ffmpeg alsa recording multiple applications audio

The trick is using dmix on loopback device:
2 dmixers; one for regualr onboard audio; the other for loopback virtual device, then duplicates streams send to onboard audio card, so you can hear what is being sent to loopback device.

Need to load snd_aloop module first;

Code:
modprobe snd-aloop index=2 id=Loopback pcm_substreams=1 enable=1
My first audio device is onboard soundcard; 2nd is HDMI card, so I put index=2 for Loopback device.

Android-x86 KitKat 4.4.4 Exton Build 160125, version 8, is a ready!

Ive added Mesa (3D Graphics Library) 10.5.9 for better Graphics performance. The system can run live (from CD or a USB stick) on almost all laptops (and some Desktop computers). For example Acer (Aspire), HP, Samsung, Dell, Toshiba, Lenovo, Thinkpad, Fujitsu, Panasonic and Ausus laptops.
