Hi,

Thanks guys!

@brianL I've always been watching, just turn around & around. Twitch your nose and twinkle a bit. You know what? You'll have the urge to seek out chimneys to go up. To bad, my sleigh & bells are being polished along with harness. Rain-deers are in Maui and will be back in a few days. Better be nice!

Aw, Santa I ways just trying to get someone to be nice. We elves have to stick together.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
For others, Happy Holidays! I've got to cover all bases now.

As you might have noticed, I'm really trying to be extra nice now.

Happy New Year!

Hi,

Happy New Year to all!

Linux Magazine article Kernels 2.6.35 and 2.6.36: Storage Updates by Jeffrey B. Layton is a very informative article.

"One of the best sources of information about Linux kernel versions is kernelnewbies.org” is another good source cited within. I suggest that any interested kernelnewbies look at the above URLs.

I personally use kernelnewbies.org, Linux Magazine and a few other freebies to keep up with things. I've been on the farm to long to stay up via the University benefits so I must use all the freebies available. Thank God for the Internet!

BTW, I haven't noticed any 'When's the Slackware 13.2/14.0 release?' posts of late. Thankfully!

"You must look into people as well as at them."-Chesterfield

EDIT:
Good comparison;

Best guess would be when it's ready!

That's exactly what I was thinking. Great minds think alike.

Hi,

To some this may seem dated but new Slackware LibreOffice users may find the development summary that is on the LibreOffice wiki to be useful.

Quote:
Excerpt from Progress Report: LibreOffice Beta 3
The OpenOffice.org fork continues to move forward. The Document Foundation recently released LibreOffice beta 3, with a set of modest user-facing improvements, and more under-the-hood work. Can LibreOffice overtake OpenOffice.org? Chances look very good.

Hi,

Ktown is the location for Alien_Bob's KDE packages for Slackware 13.1 (4.4.5/) & '-current' (4.5.95/). Be sure to look at the README for install information within each directory.

Hi,

Maybe I'm off the wall here but why are users jumping to 2.6.36? Especially the newbie kernel user.
This mod duty has gotten me to read more than normal for me. Why oh Why? Slackware '-current' uses 2.6.35.10. I have been comparing things and there are some advantages with the newer 2.6.36 but I do believe people are moving to it for the wrong reasons. Thus opening other issues.

Good comparison;

Whoa!

When did that mod thang happen?

hm... So does that mean you've gone over to the dark side or does it mean that Slackers are taking over the world?

Congrats,

Bradley.

P.S. I hope that it doesn't interfere w/the quality of community support that you've always been known for in the past

Hi,

No, it will not interfere with my continued support. I have been giving more time. Fortunately, I've got some spare time at the moment. Not very dark on this side.

Hi,

excerpt from
First LibreOffice Stable Release Nears: What Now?
LibreOffice’s first release is near, but what comes next? It’s time for LibreOffice to distinguish itself as more than a clone of Microsoft Office or OpenOffice.org.

LibreOffice 3.3 is almost here. The third release candidate came out on Thursday, January 13 and looks to be very near complete. It’s not a major upgrade over OpenOffice.org 3.2, but should put the project on solid footing going forward.
Alien_Bob's Libre Office 3.3.0-rc3
Quote:
Here they are: packages for the third release candidate of the upcoming LibreOffice 3.3.0. They have been compiled from source, as opposed to repackaging RPM files. These packages are native Slackware stuff. If you are running Slackware with a non-english localization, you can additionally install an appropriate language pack. No dictionaries are included, get a dictionary for your language at http://extensions.services.openoffic...n/dictionaries .
You can find the Slackware LibreOffice package and language packs – and associated build scripts – at the usual locations:
I really enjoy LibreOffice and find it superior to other suites. That is my opinion and not bait! I used OpenOffice for years, M$Office when I had to. I was happy to get to a suite that was user friendly and performed.

Thanks Eric for the packages!

yeah, well I guess it's time to address this issue - I was hoping that it would be someone else, but alas... that task has been delegated to me

Okay now

um...

Code:
removepkg openoffice.org; installpkg libreoffice
or...

Code:
upgradepkg openoffice.org
heh.
