Gaming in Linux; slackware 13.37

Posted 08-17-2011 at 10:23 AM by linuxpokernut

Back in 2008, I started playing Eve Online. Its one hell of a game, some call it "spreadsheets online" because you wind up needing a spreadsheet to play. It's the worlds largest single shard game server. And back in December of '08, it had a linux client.

It was not a true stand alone client, but it was a Cedega crossover. When you installed it it installed the Cedega engine with just what you need to play. Back then the game had 2 graphics options, "classic" and...

It's time to say you about my modestly slackware mirror located on Bulgaria, Gabrovo. I know that the most people uses slackbuilds, but there are people that don't know how to use it. From the other side I upload packages that I need and if I make clean installation I can just download all with wget and install them easy and faster. Some of the packages are builded from SlackBuilds. It's not complete, because this is work of the time and I often upload packages. I try to focus on system packages...

Slacklet - a new OS Mod Proposal

If you have read my other post, you'll know I want to install GNU/Linux onto a Tablet PC. I've thought about it long and hard and think that Tablets really deserve an OS design for them.

I propose a Slackware Tablet - Slacklet.

Why?

Slackware is simple to manage and it's the OS I prefer.

Real-world Justifications?

Less work on creating a Tool Chain.
The user can use their main machine running Slackware to compile...

Unlike every other distro, Slackware doesn't brand anything. Everything is vanilla. So when you boot, you see the original linux penguin logo at the top of your screen.

Download the latest kernel source from kernel.org. I'll be using here kernel 2.6.32 source and 2.6.32.1 patch. So you understand that you don't need to download the whole kernel source every-time a...

I am a KDE fan. Besides the eye-candy, I love the KDE apps. They are much better at functionality than their Gnome counterparts, e.g-> Brasero in Gnome has caused a lot of burn failures, whereas K3b is just perfect. Gnome just gets in your way of doing things. Anyway, this article is about what I did with my default Slackware install to make it more beautiful. Before I proceed...
