Thumbs up Member response

Hi,

From -current changelog;
Quote:
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!
Looks like things are back to normal.

Hi,

Alien_Bob(Eric Hameleers) has updated mirror-slackware-current.sh. After creating a mirror-slackware-current.conf by using 'mirror-slackware-current.sh -w' to create. You can use;
Code:
# If you want to exclude more from the DVD ISO than just the ./testing
# directory, you can add the directories to DVD_EXCLUDES.
# The pathnames must be local to the top level and must start with ./
DVD_EXCLUDES="-x ./testing -x ./pasture -x ./source -x ./extra/source"
to trim the DVD to <2.3GB. You can also trim more off by removing other files like 'KDEi' if you do not need KDE international. Eric has provided the means to conveniently use the 'mirror-slackware-current.conf' when using mirror-slackware-current.sh to get '-current'.

'mirror-slackware-current.conf' is very useful!

You can get;
Quote:
Slackware-Current Trimmed
The ISO below are <2.3GB + 'ISO images are automatically re-generated within a day if there is an update to the ChangeLog.txt' + These ISOs are created using Alien_Bob's script 'mirror-slackware-current.sh' + Source is not provided on the ISO images below
Slackware-current DVD ISO image <- 'x86' for 32bit
Slackware64-current DVD ISO image <- 'x86_64' for 64bit
So if you need to use '-current' without source then the ISO is available by choosing one of the above for your arch. Alien_Bob has provided this service and legally. You can get the source from any Slackware mirror so the source is made available to the user. A lot handier to use a trimmed '-current'.

So 3 months after becoming a full time Slacker, it's today that I actually learned to use Slackbuilds. Compiled and installed couple of required software and boy, it feels good. Working on learning to use sbopkg. Better late than never.

Regards.

sbopkg is great, and even better when you use queuefiles with it for things with a few dependencies.
Here's how to get the queuefiles (as root):
Code:
cd /var/lib/sbopkg
then:
Code:
git clone git://gitorious.org/sbopkg-slackware-queues/sbopkg-slackware-queues.git queues
Then it's just a matter of:
Code:
sbopkg -i whatever.sqf -k
The -k stops it getting anything that's already installed.
I got all this information from two other members (forgotten who), so don't thank me.

Virtual Machine

Hi,

For users that need a little direction or cookbook for installing VirtualBox then look at tronayne's post #3 in virtual windows under Slackware64?.

tronayne has provided a understandable post for installing VirtualBox in a Slackware Host. Very useful!

Hi,

Hey! Slackware 14.0 RC1 finally!!!
Quote:
Fri Aug 10 01:32:48 UTC 2012
n/wireless-tools-29-x86_64-8.txz: Rebuilt.
Fix comparison where a network interface is not wireless.

Good hello, and happy Thursday! Mercury went direct early yesterday morning,
and it was like the bugs started to fix themselves. It's almost enough to get
me believing in that hocus-pocus nonsense! So, here's a bunch of updates that
fix all of the reported issues in the beta, and we'll call this the 14.0
release candidate 1
. Still some updates needed for the top-level
documentation files, but we're clearly in the home stretch now (finally).
Test away, and report any remaining bugs!
