Posted 04-18-2013 at 12:07 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 04-18-2013 at 09:44 PM by the dsc

I'm not suggesting it's really preferable in any situation or in any specific situation, I just found myself in a "what the hell" point and thought it worth a try, and it worked.

I was just thinking that it would be nice that for slideshow videos there was a variable frame rate, and turns out that it exist. I've found that the program handbrake can handle that easily, so I decided to install. Unfortunatelly it's only on Debians unnofficial multimedia repository, which can...

Posted 04-17-2013 at 10:55 AM by hydraMax (Bits and Pixels)

Bulletin: It's attention is getting eclipsed by gun control legislation,
but we should be aware that CISPA (Cyber Intelligence Sharing and
Protection Act) finally emerged from committee in the House, and goes
next to the whole House for consideration. Bill summary:

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 Kernel.org. 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.
