Last time I visited changelog64 , a major up haul to slackware current was done, new xfce, kde releases and a new 3.18 kernel. This indicates a possible 14.2 Slackware will be released in due time when stability is deemed.

Since I did not want to reboot, I tried chroot. It did not work, so have to do more steps.

This is how i format my hard disk:

NEWS 150520 about AndEX – The Absolute Ultimate Edition
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-GAPPS-kernel4-exton-687mb-150520.iso. I call it The Absolute Ultimate Edition because AndEX build 150520 is totally error-free.

Bad news for codeblocks.

[kdevelop3 32 and 64 bit versions (binary installers using 'make' are included below). See for yourself. And scratch your head, wondering... Where did we go so wrong?]

Ok... About codeblocks.

What happened to the "open" part of "open source", anyway? I'm not just talking about source code, but the very philosophy of user involvement in programming.

Codeblocks does not let you override the system...

new.sfxz text-based archive creation utility, C version

Today's fantastic adventure in Computer Mad Science is the creation of a utility to create the 'sfxz' text-based archives, such as this one (see below). But for anyone not familiar with amazing, magical, and mystifying power of Computer Mad Science, there are some other interesting things going on here.

  • A simpler, faster, more reliable sfzx sytem using the C slist variation.
  • 'new.codeblocks code=c'

Cloning a git repository in an idempotent way

In config management, it is best to do setup in an idempotent way. After some basic research here's a way to clone a repository in an idempotent way. In this example we'll be cloning my home repository into ${HOME}/git/home.

First, check to see if the repository directory exists. Then change the working directory to it.
