BTW, the tractor steers itself in a straight line. I just turn corners. Looked at the pasture this afternoon before spaying and the lines were pretty good. Now, the sprayer is another story. Pain in the butt, literally.

I notice some changes since I've not been attending to the forum. What happened to the 'Thanks'? What's that little green tag below the posters information?
Few days away, loose attentive points or am I just losing it?


EDIT: Just noticed more tags below. Boy, jeremy is a changin things.

Those little green squares are part of a new Reputation thing that Jeremy's trying out. Wade through this thread:

Hi,

Gone for a few days and things really change here on LQ. LQ Reputation System is a very long yet informational thread relative to the new rep system that 'jeremy' is rolling out. Looking for member feedback there but http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...n-beta-829543/ is the announcement thread. You might want to look at 'Reputation' to get a clear overview FAQ in the Board FAQ.

Right now I have no opinion in regard to the rep system. I've been reading the referenced threads and still forming a position. 'jeremy' has LQ & the members in thought when rolling out this system. The 'Thanks' system just wasn't worth the efforts. Just a merit and no way for feedback other than within the posts content. This big brother method may be to everyone's benefit. In terms it's an expansion of a merit ranking system that will aid in policing the forum(s).

The reason for posting in the 'So you want to be a Slacker! What do I do next?' is to provide exposure to subscribers to this thread. 'jeremy' is looking for feedback on this subject!

Hi,

Looking at the Slackware-current ChangeLog: x86 (32-bit) Architecture: Those of you that are adventurous then look at the packages mozilla-firefox-4.0b4-i486-1.txz from -current. Sure it's beta but why not have some fun.

Hi,

I've had a little time on my hands today. So some maintenance & changes to 'SlackwareŽ-Links' have been done. Hope you like whats been done. I've got more to do but will do in stages.

It looks like things have settled somewhat for the LQ Reputation System thread. I'm curious what fellow Slackware users have to say?
Please respond within LQ Reputation System thread.

You might want to look at 'Reputation' to get a clear overview FAQ in the Board FAQ.

Onward fellow Slackware users!

Hi,

Just when I think 3.6.8 has been polished the way I want then;

Quote:
excerpt -current changelog;

xap/mozilla-firefox-3.6.9-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
This fixes some security issues.
For more information, see:
http://www.mozilla.org/security/know...firefox36.html
(* Security fix *)
I know this has been said many times before but Security Advisories
sign-up is a must for any Slackware user!

Hi,

New Adobe flash player for Linux, look at http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/flashplayer10/ for the announcement and downloads.

Alien_Bob has created Slackware packages for the new Adobe flashplayer (32-bit or 64-bit), so you can grab those from http://slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/flashplayer-plugin/ .

Happy slacking!

Firefox Beta6 is in /testing on -current. I am presently using it with no problems. Its a bit faster, but speed is not my first priority - functionality is. Good so far!

Hi,

Yes, I linked it earlier. I do need to get back to some testing but got other things that are taking priority.

I noticed in the changelog this mourning:
Quote:
Fri Sep 17 23:34:42 UTC 2010
l/seamonkey-solibs-2.0.8-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
xap/mozilla-firefox-3.6.10-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
xap/mozilla-thunderbird-3.1.4-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
xap/seamonkey-2.0.8-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
testing/packages/mozilla-firefox-4.0b6-x86_64-1.txz: Upgraded.
To many things to do and daylight is burning.

Hi,

SlackUp!

'David Woodfall (aka dive)' has provided 'manpages' for mkslack 3.5.mkslack 3.5 as described;

Quote:
mkslack 3.5

This slackbuild generator uses templates stored in /usr/share/mkslack/templates
and a config file /etc/mkslack/mkslack.conf which you must edit for name,
email, copyright etc.

Idea for use:

The initial slackbuild and info file are built by this script, and when
a test build/install is done and working, the files should be tweaked by
hand. Especially don't forget to fill in the rest of the details in the
.info. One thing to point out is that mkslack will overwrite these files
if run again unless you set KEEPBACKUPS="YES" in the conf (default).

This is only a starter kit! You ARE expected to edit the created files
by hand afterwards to remove unnecesary parts!
The 'mkslack - a SlackBuild generator script' is another tool to aid the user when working with those packages;
