Lusus 0.1: Source Package Released

Posted 12-31-2009 at 05:03 AM by CoderMan

I have made available my first source code distribution of Lusus,
available at http://indicium.us/cgi-bin/pages/get?view=lusus.

I'm hoping to get more work done on Lusus during the last two weeks of

Updated 01-28-2010 at 07:08 AM by Lufbery

Starting from scratch, here's what I do:

Keeping the Stock Slackware Up-to-date
  1. Install a fresh Slackware from the iso.
  2. Use lftp with the mirror option to mirror the /slackware64-13.0/patches/packages/ directory from my favorite Slackware mirror:
    Code:
    lftp -c "open ftp://carroll.aset.psu.edu/pub/linux/distributions/slackware/slackware-13.0/patches/ ; mirror -e -n packages"
