Privilege

Posted 08-31-2014 at 02:19 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

I read an article earlier on the privilege that white males enjoy in the US. You can read it here:

To cut to the chase, I'll just say that I really, really wish I would have been born a minority. Female of a minority, preferably.

Why? I'm sick of hearing about how privileged I am because I was born the way I was. Perhaps I could then enjoy my successes to their fullest extent...

Build 140831 of SlackEX 14.1 live USB with kernel 3.16.1

Posted 08-31-2014 at 12:05 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

New features in version 140831 of SlackEX
SlackEX build 140831 comes as a ZIP-file for direct installation to an USB stick. I have replaced kernel 3.14-x86_64-exton with kernel 3.16.1-x86_64-exton with support for “everything”. KDE is downgraded to version 4.10.5 from version 4.11.1. All other component software is also upgraded to the latest Slackware version by now. I may mention in particular GParted 0.17.0 (latest, not in Slackware’s repositories), VirtualBox 4.3.14 (latest, not in Slackware’s...

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 3.16.1!

Posted 08-23-2014 at 01:57 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.1 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk, SlackEX and Exton|Defender. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 3.16.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.16.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released (20140814).

HyperTransport Sync Flood Error, 3.* series kernel , MSI mobo

Posted 08-22-2014 at 04:13 AM by Yury_T

After installing the slackware 14.1/amd64 (kernel 3.*) on the machine with MSI K8-something motherboard (integrated nvidia adapter, nouveaux nvidia driver), I began to experience freezes after start of Firefox, of all things. Memtest showed no faults, voltage tuning didn't help.

The problem has been (seemingly) solved by setting the on-board video adapter memory window size (or whatever this setting is called) to the minimal 16Mb (the default was 64Mb).

DebEX KDE, build 140821, with KDE 4.13.3 and kernel 3.16

Posted 08-21-2014 at 08:58 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have made a new version of the extra version of DebEX, wich I call DebEX KDE Live DVD. (The first version is from 140626). It’s a pure Debian system. I.e.: There are no Ubuntu or Kubuntu elements involved. DebEX KDE uses KDE 4.13.3 as Desktop environment. (The latest stable version of KDE). Study the full package list.
