Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 4.5!

Posted 03-17-2016 at 06:02 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

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 4.5-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 4.5 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released 20160314.

What’s new in kernel 4.5?

kwrite "vi input mode" enabled accidentaly is quite annoying

First of all, you may be used to sometimes pasting stuff with shift+control+V instead of just control+V. Perhaps that's the way it's done in nano and/or some terminal emulators. The problem is that it's now also the default shortcut to enable "vi edit mode" in kwrite.

For people who like myself, don't really get "vi", using nano or something like that when forced to use cli editors, if you're in kwrite (perhaps also kate) and all of a sudden it seems to behave...

Parsing script arguments in bash, without getopt(s)

Posted 03-12-2016 at 05:15 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Tags arguments, bash

I originally answered the question as the OP asked. This Q/A is getting a lot of attention, so I should also offer the non-magic way to do this. I'm going to expand upon guneysus's answer to fix the nasty sed and include Tobias Kienzler's suggestion.
