Hi, I see from link in post #10 Caitlyn is still catching heat.

For all the time and pride PV has put into Slackware I do not believe he would just leave and not turn over the reins.

I've never been worried, things like funky hardware happen to all of us.

She is mentioned once in the article and the mention deals with her comment back when the farcical side show circus was going on. That can hardly be construed to show she "is still catching heat". One person from LQ made a post on another site that was removed shortly after (probably because it was in such bad taste that everyone thought it needed to be removed) but even that only shows some people cannot let go.

Just like other Slackware things it may be having some difficulty. Lets all go into an emotional meltdown over it

Thumbs up The SWAG (Simple Wild Ass Guess)

It most probably looks like this IMHO:
Quote:
1. Running a project, as stable as Slackware, one must have quite boring periods
2. Being right "most of time"(TM) makes a guy mostly bored (except few leftover "toldya"s) on daily basis
3. Having most users "roll their own"(TM) (as we do ) makes a mostly boring support service
all in all quite some boredom besides the kernel.org changlelog and ever growing KDE bloat
so, one day he inevitably wakes up and has a "what if"-moment(TM):
Quote:
Hmm, let's see what they do if I finally (finally!? ( !FINALLY!)) upgrade that ever aging hardware running my site
THE problem:
First time this occurred, was most probably around circa 2001.-2002.
When he finally surrendered to the idea, we all know... (it's down isn't it?)


What's uncertain?
A. Was it it's own (Pat's) idea?
B. Was it someone else (I can see a "toldya" coming)?

IMHO

So he must be ROFL-ing the best time of the decade, having fun how we run from here to there (Slackwedo?) sayng/writing this and that.
I know the best answer and interview I can read of Slackware isn't on any (even Pat's own) server on the web: it's laser carved on the install disc I ran when I clean installed the last Slackware version (13.37) I run:
There is all he thinks and knows (and is right to the point IMHO):
A good (best IMHO) GNU/Linux is Pat's best ever interview, and he is right now brewing the next one for us

Thumbs up Pat, and care not to ROFL too hard?

FYI, I use this script to get slackware-current ChangeLog.txt deltas sent to me:
http://ciar.org/ttk/public/slacklog.pl

Feel free to use it yourself -- modify (at least) MAILRECIPS and DOMAIN, then put it in your /etc/cron.daily to receive daily deltas. (Or, if you prefer, contact me at ttk@ciar.org and I will add your email address to my instance's MAILRECIPS.)

Here's an example of the most recent delta, to give you an idea of what to expect:

Code:
Thu May 24 20:02:09 UTC 2012
n/httpd-2.4.2-x86_64-2.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Always install the new rc.httpd.
n/php-5.4.3-x86_64-3.txz:  Rebuilt.
  Added --enable-maintainer-zts to the ./configure options.
  It seems that this option was automatically enabled on the 64-bit side,
  but not on 32-bit.  I'm still not entirely sure why that happened.  I
  had a few theories about it, like perhaps httpd was running when one of
  the PHP packages was compiled, but testing on 32-bit seemed to engage
  ZTS at random.  The only reliable way to make things work was to specify
  the option explicitly, so that's what has been done.  If it has to be
  one way or the other, I think we want a thread-safe PHP that will work
  with any httpd MPM.  Let me know if there are still any issues, but it
  should be working properly now.

Thanks for the useful sticky but where to download torrents while slackware.com is down?

I could not find torrents following any of the links in this thread (the LQ page points to slackware.com). I was looking for the 13.37 32-bit DVD torrent.

Hi,

Quote:
From -current changelog;
Sat Jun 2 01:03:42 UTC 2012 As you've possibly noticed by now, slackware.com is back on the air, and I'd like to take this opportunity to give a hearty thanks to Mark Post of Slack/390 fame for updating the PHP code to make it happen! Eric Hameleers and the rest of the crew also pitched in to help get it installed and running on our other server. Thanks as well to all the folks who emailed with offers of hardware, help porting, and other support for the site. We really appreciated it. Viva la vie Slackware!
Hopefully this resolves some issues.
