install slack to lg x110 day 1

Posted 04-26-2015 at 11:15 PM by mrknify

Today I installed Slackware via an sd card. It did not go smoothly.

I used rufus usb key installer to put the 14.1 iso onto my sd card. Booted my LG x110 with the card, now my little netbook is my toy, I use it to install all manner of things before migrating them out. Previously I had installed two versions of Oz Unity on my netbook, they installed to duel boot with the netbooks Windows XP using grub. more recently I had been using Arch Linux via usb install to a SD card but that...

NEWS 150426 ABOUT AndEX Lollipop 5.0.2
My new build of Android-x86 Lollipop 5.0.2 has GAPPS pre-installed. I.e. Google Play Services, Google Play Store, Google+, Maps, YouTube and more apps. The ISO is called android-x86-5.0.2-lollipop-exton-kernel-GAPPS-721mb-150426.iso. I finally managed to install Google Play Services, which is needed for Google Play Store to run. You shall always use Google Play Store in AndEX version 150426. Only use Aptoide App Manager (which is also pre-installed) if...

How to measure peak memory usage

Posted 04-26-2015 at 08:46 AM by BenCollver

In the past, my method to measure peak memory usage was to boot a system, wait for it to become idle, run "free", run the program in question, then run "free" again. The difference is the memory usage. This method accounts for multi-process programs such as the LAMP stack, but it doesn't work as well for ephemeral command line utilities.

Today I ran across an easier way: Run the command line utility with /usr/bin/time -v. Example:

bash-4.2$ /usr/bin/time

Need to build glade with -g3 flags? The Computer Mad Science Team does, and so today's marvelous adventure starts here. [Only needs 'make' and the original glade sources d/load to do it.]

  • An alternate build system generated with Computer Mad Science tools.

Our attempt to use the standard ./configure-make sources to get glade to compile with debug flags...

Updated 04-24-2015 at 10:02 AM by exton (More info)

This morning I discovered (once again) how useful an Android-x86 system can be. As a matter of fact it can do everything the average computer user needs to do! I.e. you can browse the Internet with different browsers (for example Google Chrome), easily check your mail with the app Gmail or other apps, watch YouTube movies with the YouTube app, handle Facebook with the Facebook app, edit your photos with PicsArt Photo Studio and manage all kinds of documents with QuickOffice...
