Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 4.3.1!

Posted 12-10-2015 at 02:54 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 14.1 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 4.3.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 4.3.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released yesterday (20151209).

What’s new in kernel 4.3.1?

NEWS 151206 – AndEX – Marshmallow 6.0 with kernel 4.0.9-exton and GAPPS
My build of Android-x86 Marshmallow 6.0 has GAPPS pre-installed. I.e. Google Play Services, Google Play Store, Maps, Gmail, YouTube and more apps. For example: Aptoide, Spotify, Facebook, Google Chrome and OfficeSuite 8. The ISO is called android-x86-6.0-marshmallow-kernel-4.0.9-exton-GAPPS-692mb-151206.iso.

Hard-earned lessons

Posted 12-05-2015 at 12:58 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

If there is one thing I have never fully understood, it is bird people. They have tons of birds loose in their house, feathers and bird crap on everything...just, not a good way to go, right? Last time I visited a friend who is a bird person, I had some feathery jerk land on my head and crap on my glasses.

I'm more of a fish and reptile person. I tolerate cats and dogs (well, moreso cats than dogs). So when my wife suggested we get two parakeets to keep as pets, I wasn't thrilled....

The added (including core dumps!) to my title is actually the main reason for me deciding to write this entry.

So very many times I see new programmers who write something, it compiles, so they run it, and then they are stumped because their programming resulted in a segment violation and possibly a core file. And now they're stuck, not knowing why this occurred and also having no real idea how to proceed.
