/30 ftw!

Posted 06-16-2013 at 09:31 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

So, one of my big fears on my home network is a virus outbreak. Granted, my wife is an incredibly paranoid web surfer, and in the 12 years we've been together there has been just one virus issue (and that was after our niece used her computer to surf some "ooh, I'm a vampire...I sparkle!" type of social sites). Sigh.

So, why the rekindled fear? My daughter is old enough to start using the internet, and she hasn't had time to build up the same paranoia that her mother...

Pepper Flash plugin for Chromium browser

Posted 06-16-2013 at 08:01 PM by neonsignal

A few sites require the the newer version of Adobe Flash with the Pepper API.

This is included in the closed Chrome browser package, but it can also be used with the open source Chromium browser from which Chrome is derived. The Pepper API is not supported by Firefox.

There are packages available for some distros, but it can also be installed manually.

First download the current Chrome package to suit your architecture, eg:
Code:
wget https://dl.google.com/linux/direct/google-chrome-stable-current_

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest kernel – 3.9.6!

Posted 06-16-2013 at 10:27 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit 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 huge. “My” kernel 3.9.6-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.9.6 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released 20130613.

Feature OVERVIEW for the Linux 3.9 kernel

lqMiniTerm (version 2)

Posted 06-15-2013 at 10:07 AM by rainbowsally

Today's Feature
  • A new version of the lqMiniTerm (introduced in the horrible sockets experiments). :-) (If you missed those, count yourself lucky. ;-) )

Unfortunately, for the GUI stuff the file sets are getting rather large. It's only 12K as a gzipped tar but uncompressed it's big enough to make the blog choke, even as an sfxz compressed self extractor.

But it's worth taking a peek at this because there are a few features in it that work (that's important... that it works,...
