Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 3.14.5!

Posted 06-02-2014 at 12:22 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

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 3.14.5-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.14.5 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released (20140531).

I just want to Thank all of you for putting up w/ me

Posted 05-31-2014 at 04:55 PM by Peter T

I have U14.04 alone on my HP. I did a fresh install and chose to let Linux set a 'logical' partitioning scheme
on it's own during the installation phase. I hope that will be okay for now, because I really am afraid to go in there and tinker.

Someone here was kind enough to mention 'transmission' as the app for torrents in the Linux realm.
I would like to hear more, or have a link posted for me to read.

again ,, thanks

Simple "at"-like script thingie to run other things at a given time

Posted 05-31-2014 at 01:00 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

Code:
#!/bin/bash
now=$(date +%s)
then=$(date --date "$1" +%s)
sleep $((then-now))
I was just tired to try to figure the syntax and usage of "at", when I just wanted gxmessage to pop up to remind me of something.

Usage: "when 17:20 && gxmessage whatever or whatever you want to start at 17:20"

Change "when" to whatever name you wish to call it. Perhaps "by" is more grammatically...

Slackware-14.1-Hacks-ClamAV/ClamTk

Posted 05-30-2014 at 08:08 PM by arniekat

ClamAV is an Open Source anti-virus application and ClamTk is the Graphical User Interface for ClamAV.

Before creating the clamav package or installing the package set, create the clamav user and group:

You need to create a "clamav" user and group - SlackBuilds.org suggests uid=210 and gid=210.

# groupadd -g 210 clamav
# useradd -g clamav -s /bin/false -u 210 clamav

Compile the following from SlackBuilds.org in the following...
