Run your Slackware 64bit system even better with the latest kernel!

Posted 04-15-2013 at 01:25 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.0 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk , SlackEX, Exton|Defender and Exton-Slack. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel 3.2.29 huge. “My” kernel 3.8.7-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.8.7 is the latest stable kernel available from Released 20130412.

Yet another new version of exGENT (Gentoo) with LXDE

Posted 04-15-2013 at 01:22 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I’ve made a new version (130415) of exGENT, which is based on Gentoo. The old version of exGENT is from 130318. My new exGENT Linux live system uses LXDE as Desktop Environment and “my special” genkernel 3.7.10-gentoo-exton. LXDE is used because of its speed. Quite new is that I’ve found a suitable installation program, in which a Grub installation (Grub Legacy) is included. I’ve also added even more support för Atheros and Broadcom wireless cards in version 130415.

Paging? Swapping? Which is it?

Posted 04-15-2013 at 11:52 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

It's a bit big to be called a "one-liner", but this "script" will give you a short overview of paging levels vs. swapping levels on your machine.

Set T=<seconds> to whatever timeframe you want to test for.

T=5; ( vmstat -s; sleep $T; vmstat -s ) | awk -v T="$T" -F'[(/)]' '/pages paged in/{ pgpio=pgpin; pgpin=$1 } /pages paged out/{ pgpoo=pgpon; pgpon=$1 } /pages swapped in/{ pgsio=pgsin; pgsin=$1 } /pages swapped out/{ pgsoo=pgson;

One of my other passions (aside from OpenBSD, Linux, philosophy, math, etc...) is Cichlids. Not just any Cichlid, though...Lake Malawi (Mbuna) Cichlids, in particular.

I currently have a 55 gallon aquarium housing quite a few species of Mbuna. One notable species is Melanochromis Auratus. I currently have four of them, all purchased before the color changes to distinguish the males and females. When one started to turn black and blue, I named him "Brutus". He happily...
