Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 3.15.6!

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 3.15.6-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.15.6 is the latest stable kernel available from Released (20140717).

CruxEX 3.1 2014 64bit Linux Live USB is based on CRUX 3.1 (latest version, released 140716), which is all Linux enthusiasts/nerds favorite OS. (CRUX 3.1 is a lightweight Linux distribution for the x86-64 architecture targeted at experienced Linux users). CruxEX 3.1 2014 uses the LXDE Desktop environment. I have replaced the original CRUX kernel 3.12.24 with “my” special kernel 3.15.6-x86_64-exton, with support for “extra everything”. Kernel 3.15.6 is the latest available stable kernel...

Engineering Boredom

Posted 07-21-2014 at 12:55 PM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)

In the past few months, I've encountered a dramatic shift in interests. Sure, I'm still interested in coding, philosophy, and Unix, but I've appended a new interest to the end of the list, and this one has started trumping my other interests.

The interest is in electronics. I'm not sure 1) how I suddenly got interested in electronics or 2) how I never noticed electronics before! I've gone from the quiet "coder zen" type of desk (i.e. disorganized, but in an "organized"...

Lubuntu conky and compton

Getting a good desktop with effects like shadows and stuff is the challenge here. After some fiddling around (conky doesnot play well with compton), I was able to get a working setup.

1. Installing compton
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:richardgv/compton
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install compton
2. Open /home/<user>/.config/compton.conf, create one if it doesnot exist. Put these in
# Shadow
shadow = true;			# Enabled
