Installing UT2004 and running native on Linux is pretty straight forward. You will need wine to run the GOG installer though. I accomplished this on Slackware64 multilib without any issues.

Debian & Fglrx

Posted 11-05-2010 at 07:42 PM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

I've decided to change from Ubuntu to Debian Testing again, after a bad encounter with the Ubuntu updater. Long story short, I did not know it was going to take 4+ hours to update from 10.04 to 10.10, and when I was informed, I just killed the system power in disgust.

The basic premise for applying security (and other) updates to Slackware is as follows:
  1. Get your security update notice via e-mail and then read the changelog. (Reading the changelog is a great idea because not all Slackware updates are security updates).
  2. Download the relevant packages from the /patches directory of your Slackware version's mirror (e.g.

Home router upgrade #2 - NetGear WNR3500L

Posted 11-05-2010 at 08:33 AM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

Yesterday I bought this cute tiny box for my home net. My previous routers were 2 PCs, first one I used since aug 2009 was P1 200mhz, 64mb ram, recent one is old celeron 2.4 ghz, 1g ram which is much more unstable than P1
These ones were using way too much power and make an excessive levels of noise, so I finally decided to trash this stuff and get myself a small box

Initially I was looking for a cheapest router supporting wifi(I have a laptop and I'm already sick of...
