EXTON-MAN 2014 (Mageia 4) 32 bit Linux live cd with LXDE

Posted 02-03-2014 at 11:09 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 02-05-2014 at 11:34 AM by exton

I’ve made a quick and simple remaster of Mageia 4, released 140201. Mageia has been the third most popular Linux system in the world for some time now (according to Distrowatch.com).

Who is EXTON-MAN 2014 32 bit LXDE for?
There is no official live Mageia 4 ISO with LXDE for downloading. (Only with KDE and Gnome). EXTON-MAN 2014 can be useful for people with older 32 bit computers who like to run an eminent Linux system (Mageia) live with some speed. Also of course for all people...

Reflections: Progress on OpenSSL, and Greybeard Wisdom

Posted 02-01-2014 at 04:01 PM by ttk (Unpopular Positions: One Geek's Take)
Updated 02-01-2014 at 04:03 PM by ttk

I'm finally pulling out of a months-long depressive funk, and touched my openssl patch again. On one hand openssl isn't exactly pleasant to work with (hardly any comments, bizarre formatting, obscure internal interfaces), but it felt good to be writing some C and making progress on my #1 project.

In addition to writing the code, I really should be documenting the whys and hows of the changes, like I promised my friend Chris. I didn't remember that until just now. Perhaps enumerating...

A new version of LFA (Linux for All) is ready!

Posted 01-31-2014 at 08:49 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Version 140131 of LFA (Linux for All), 13.10, 64 bit, with Mate and four other Desktop Environments, is ready!

NEWS about LFA version 140131
1. The LFA ISO is now a ISO-hybrid, which means that it can very easily be transferred (copied) to a USB pen drive. You can then even run LFA from the USB stick and save all your system changes on the stick. I.e. you will enjoy persistence! I’ve found two scripts which make the installation to USB very simple. The scripts are quite ingenious....

Forcing /var/lock/subsys file if init script didn't start a given service?

Posted 01-30-2014 at 04:46 PM by MensaWater

Today I was creating a new init script on RHEL6. This isn't something I've had to do often.

I ran into the common problem that although the new script successfully started and stopped the service from command line and also started it on reboot it did NOT stop it before the server went down when the shutdown was done.

The reason for that is because on RHEL they run a killall script that checks for files in /var/lock/subsys and only run the "stop" portion...

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest kernel – 3.13.1!

Posted 01-30-2014 at 11:36 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 01-30-2014 at 11:37 AM by exton

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 3.13.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.13.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released yesterday (20140129).
