I have made a new version of ExTiX – The Ultimate Linux System. I call it ExTiX 16.5 LXQt Live DVD. (The previous version was 16.3 from 160530).

Well now Qt uses GTK dialogs in GNOME. Why can’t Gtk “repay the debt” and use KDE dialogs in KDE?
I didn't even know that KDE did that/allowed to do that (alongside with GTK2 theming, which again, doesn't work in the other direction).

How nice would it be if it was reciprocal.

I simply don't understand some UI developers philosophies. Like "lets...

Run your Slackware installation with the latest kernel – 4.8.1!

Posted 10-10-2016 at 11:45 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

NEWS 161010
Kernel 4.8.1-x86_64-exton is my newest Slackware kernel. The stable kernel 4.8.1 was released on October 7, 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 4.8.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 4.8.1 is the latest kernel available...

Misuse of sudo(8) and sudoers(5)

Posted 10-07-2016 at 06:46 AM by Turbocapitalist

The utility sudo(8) runs programs as another user. Frequently, that other user is root, but it does not have to be, the utility can also be used to downgrade privileges. Often it is mis-used to provide full root access to a group of users in place of su(1). However, sudo(8) was developed to give selective access to machines, following the principle of least privilege. It can achieve a very fine granularity of access, even allowing just specific programs or specific options for specific programs....
