"Is Slackware dead 2020" thread closed

Posted Yesterday at 11:11 PM by kingbeowulf

The discussion collapsed into nonsense before I could post my non-useful, dead Slackware, Year Linux Desktop, desktop. I had lost track of the discussion since I have had to continue to work with a 20% pay cut in the viral apocalypse that is the USA.

So here is a desktop showing neofetch etc for gandalf (main box, Slackware64-current multilib), aragron (new miniITX build, Slackware64-current), arwen (Lenovo Thinkpad T510 Slackware64-current), beorn (hobby server for gopher, httpd,...

Slackware64-Current (15.0): Ryzen 7 mini-ITX amdgpu vs. Nvidia Benchmarks

I have finally had some time to compile the benchmarks for a series of GPUs on the new mini-ITX build. The purpose was to see if the amdgpu driver is ready to compete with Nvidia on a Linux powered game box. The GPUs choices are simply what I had available and fairly recent, except for the RX 5700 XT, which was a new purchase.

Getting iOS 10.x working with Slackware 14.2

The version of libimobiledevice-1.2.0 released Jan 28, 2015 and shipped with 14.2 stable is too old to support plug and play for newer iDevices. IPhones, etc will generate a mount or access error. For my work iPhone, I usually just want to dump photos and video. There are patches and workarounds - such as using iCloud. Just goes to show that in 2 years much changes in the mobile device space. There has been dead silence on requests for upstream to push a new release. For example: https://github.com/libimobiledevice/...ice/issues/456...
