Slackware 01 00 00 00


Did I miss something? I just finished installing Slackware64 13.0 on my notebook, and chose the LILO setup with the Slackware background, rather than the traditional LILO setup. Normally like before the image should say Slackware Linux, instead it is Slackware 01 00 00 00.

Does anyone else see this with their setup? This is a normal bitmap, but did something go wrong with the logo or something?

Oh. Well look, the only reason why I didn't catch that before was because the drive on my HP Notebook is furked up. I sent it to HP to get my wireless fixed, and they furked it up apparently by not putting it back right. Now whenver I move the notebook a little, the optical drive pops open, and sometimes even burning fails. I burned a successful Slack DVD, and even before burning I did a MD5 checksum. No errors while installing either.




I converted it and it comes out as: "0011000000110001001000000011000000110000001000000011000000110000001000000011000000110000."


I even decoded the original and it came out as @. I thought it would come out as Linux or something, but it didn't.

Me too. It's a nice touch.


Octal works well too. "Slackware 100!"
Then again, It sounds too much like a 1980s Pop-group.

How about Hex, "Slackware 40"
Damn! Another 80's Pop-group!


On reflection, I think it's best to stick with the binary.

Not in relation to this thread. It was about Slackware64 as in the logo.

binary "01 00 00 00"
octal 100
hex 40.


Slackware 13 would have been:

binary 00 00 11 01
octal 15
hex 0D

...although "Slackware D" does sound like it ought to have Jack Black in it.


edit:

I suppose we ought to mention BCD as well,
00 01 00 11 - Slackware 13
01 10 01 00 - Slackware 64

My god, that takes me back... Not seen binary coded decimal in years!
