Mhh, FTP and HTTP/HTTPS are protocols based on the "client-server" model.

Not all the protocols used on the Internet are P2P.

I don't want to be picky but this made me shrug.

Anyway, kudos to Pat and the crew, for this new release

I'm considering to support it through the online shop.

Regards.

It's the case on 14 too with the smp kernel.

This is up to you. But the Nvidia blob sometimes need a bit of patching work.

I did use the Legacy 304.88 driver along with the 3.10.5 smp kernel and a patch was needed in order for the module to compile.

But now, with the new 304.108 driver, it installs right away.

So, basically, this is a YMMV case.

Also, please note that both radeon and nouveau drivers has been really improved on the lastest 3.12 kernel.

It's available in the testing branch of the Slackware repos.

FTP is based on the P2P nature of the Internet and allows connecting various machines together via sockets, to transfer files between them, without having to download or upload them from your own machine. It was the most popular protocol of the 1980s and early 90s and was used heavily for file sharing. Don't think that the "FTP" implementation of your random browser has anything to do with that, it's a very powerful protocol.

BitTorrent works almost the same, just with a different protocol and more automation. So it's based on the "client-server model", too.

Until TCP/IP is replaced by something else, all protocols on the Internet are P2P protocols on the outside. That's a technical fact, the big companies don't like.

Tossed a coin to decide on the driver. Heads = nouveau, tails = nvidia. Came down tails, so I've installed the 331.20. OK, so far.

I spent one afternoon to move my debian server to slackware 14.1 server, awesome!!!
I have a question: Why add Nginx to slackware packages?
The reason is the license?

This release is a great release but I have a problem with mesa : glxinfo and glxgears segfault on a clean install without external driver (ati) ? Has anyone the same problem?

I've been running -current for quite some time now on my laptop (32 bit) and my work horse (64 bit, though I run the 32 bit version). It's been rock solid, thanks a lot for all the hard work Patrick and the crew put into it.

Quick thanks to Pat and the crew on Slackware 14.1. Installed 64bit 14.1 on a test hard drive. Nouveau works on my nvidia 8400GS, tried 331.20 using sh nvidia-installer. It didn't build, but halted regarding an xorg .la file. But the 325.15 nvidia driver installed correctly and ran. Go figure.

Still, I don't plan to switch over to 14.1 until the shiny DVD's come in the mail. And when both Slackbuilds.org and Alien Bob's most excellent packages on his website are updated to 14.1

Nvidia added libEGL in the new version of the driver, but only on 32bit. On 64bit you get a warning: something about it being unable to determine the architecture for conflict testing (I would have expected the 'lib64' to be a fairly blatant clue, but whatever...). The driver actually installs, but removes libEGL.la, while leaving mesa's libEGL.so still in-place. What I'm not sure about is whether the appropriate action is to put the .la file back, or to also remove the libEGL.so that belongs to mesa and was left behind. Thankfully, I don't think there's much that actually uses it as yet, so it's not an urgent issue. I expect NVIDIA will get their act together and fix it sooner or later (probably later ).

Cool, successfully upgraded to 14.1 on actual machine. Everything works, got new multilib packages, wine works, only thing now not working is google-earth and skype, I get segmentation fault on skype and google complains about missing files or directories, other than that relatively painless, also updated NVIDIA driver, - yea I am using the blob ... but still, - to think I was nervous upgrading , heehee

You might want to rebuilt skype and for google-earth, what version do you use? I'm using 7.1.2.2041 and it's working fine here

Upgraded from 14.0 to 14.1 this afternoon and it was simple as usual. I prefer to do a full install (format /, /usr, etc.), but I have a separate /home partition that never gets formatted.
