Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest kernel – 3.12.1!

Posted 11-21-2013 at 09:07 AM 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 3.12.1-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.12.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released yesterday (20131120).

Plex media server for Slackware

Posted 10-22-2013 at 12:50 PM by trxdraxon (The adventures of your average linux user)
Updated 10-22-2013 at 02:10 PM by trxdraxon

I got Plex media server up and running smoothly on my Slackware box and thought I would share my experience. It is pretty easy to get running but there is little to no documentation for Slackware as it is not officially supported.

EDIT: Forgot to add that the package is 32bit so you will need multilib installed.

First install the uNRAID package. Once it's installed there is a settings.ini in /boot/config/plugins/plexmediaserver that you should edit. You can edit...

A new version of Exton-Slack 14.0 is ready!

Posted 05-18-2013 at 12:55 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Exton-Slack current is a new remaster of Slackware 14.0/current 64bit. KDE 4.10.3 (released 130507) is used as Desktop Environment. I have compiled the kernel 3.8.7 in the same way that Slackware’s kernel huge is compiled. This means that there are a lot of native support for modern hardware in “my” kernel 3.8.7-exton. Even more than what is available in Slackware’s original kernel huge. This is my third Slackware system for 64bit computers. Furthermore I have installed Grub2, which can be used...
