New Slackware-current Live ISOs with latest Plasma


Hi,

Via email notification from Eric's Blog posts.
Quote:
New Slackware-current Live ISOs with latest Plasma
by alienbob I am ready with a new batch of packages for Plasma 5 and to showcase that in a Slackware Live Edition, I stamped a new version on 'liveslak'.
Version 1.1.5 is ready, again containing only minor tweaks compared to the previous release. I made a set of ISO images for several variants of the 64bit and 32bit versions of Slackware Live Edition based on liveslak 1.1.5 and using Slackware-current dated "Thu Dec 1 08:49:20 UTC 2016". These ISO images have been uploaded and are available on the primary server 'bear'. You will find ISO images for a full Slackware, Plasma5, MATE and Cinnamon (yes, I did one this time!) variants and the 700MB small XFCE variant.

If you already use a Slackware Live USB stick that you do not want to re-format, you should use the "-r" parameter to the "iso2usb.sh" script. The "-r" or refresh parameter allows you to refresh the liveslak files on your USB stick without touching your custom content.
This notification is via Eric's email subscription. I highly recommend that Slackware users sign up for a subscript via his Blog page. Just submit your email address on his Blog page to get these notifications so you will not miss anything from his Blog.
Great resource!

Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!

Hi,

I seem to remember that is one of the reasons for Eric to move to bear. If you visit his blog you can find a past post about this; http://alien.slackbook.org/blog

You might need to dig through the pages to find the reference.

Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!

You can hammer 'bear', it will not buckle and crash.
It also has unlimited bandwidth so you can download as much and as fast (2.5 gbps connection to the internet) as you want.

Alien Bob, I hope things are looking up for you career-wise. (I read a quote from your blog in a previous post on this thread). Not good news to hear from anyone

I have been trying to install from a live DVD using the setup2hd script but I keep getting a "Live media not accessible" error telling me to mount my live media partition on mnt/livemedia. I can confirm that it's mounted there but the script still stops on that error.

I'm not very experienced so hoping that maybe you have had other issues like this and it is something simple that I may be overlooking.

In the meantime I'm going to try to install from the regular install .iso but I'd really like your version with Plasma 5 (etc) included. My heart belongs to xfce but sometimes I get all showy.

Thanks!

Pete, this is not the topic to discuss issues with Slackware Live. Visit my blog, post your issue in the most recent article about liveslak, and give more detail than above, because what you posted here is too vague to give you an answer. The blog also tells you about my employment status.

Kernel discussions

Hi,

I am seeing some discussion on new kernel usage; The Latest Kernel Release.

I have a new Dell Inspiron 5755 AMD A10-8700P Processor (Quad Core, up to 3.20GHz, 2M Cache, 35W) 8GB memory and will install a new SSD to replace the 1TB 5400 HDD, on order and will be installing Slackware64 14.2 and hopefully the newer kernel too experiment with.

That is if I ever get it, some hassles from Dell Customer care for a order mix up. My computer arrived on my patio and the box was open, driver just dropped at my patio. Many things were missing and Dell customer care said the whole thing had to be shipped back for exchange. Spending a lot of phone time trying to get this resolved. I like Dell and purchased many pieces from the company.

So I am anxious to get the new system to bring things up for experimentation with new hardware and Slackware64 14.2 with a new kernel.

From experience and reading here on LQ we have a solid Slackware64 14.2 release.

Have fun & enjoy!

Arrow Adding CACert root certificates to your Slackware

Hi,

From Alien Bob for users that wish to use CACert with their Slackware systems. Recent email alert from; http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/addi...our-slackware/
Quote:
Adding CACert root certificates to your Slackware

by alienbob

Long before the "letsencrypt" initiative, we already had another free and open Certificate Authority, called CACert.org. CACert is community driven, and uses 'assurers' who personally verify users' identities, thereby building a "web of trust". Unfortunately, the big players on the Internet (Google, Mozilla, Microsoft) have always refused to accept and incorporate the CACert root certificate into their browsers. Instead, after many years of imploring these companies to add CACert as a trusted Certificate Authority without any success, they spat in the face of the community and launched their own alternative for free SSL certificates: letsencrypt.
And therefore, even today, a site that uses a CACert-issued SSL certificate is flagged by browsers as untrustworthy. In my opinion. this refusal to accept a community-driven security initiative is nothing short of bullying.
My own server, bear.alienbase.nl, uses a CACert-issued certificate. Folks, it is secure to use https on it! Even when Chrome or Firefox says it is not. So, how to fix that bogus warning message?
Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!
