SlackEX Build 170831 (Slackware 14.2) live dvd with KDE 14.35, kernel 4.12.9-x86_64-exton, Google Chrome 60.0.3112 and VirtualBox 5.1.26

New features in version 170831 of SlackEX
I have replaced kernel 4.10.2-x86_64-exton with kernel 4.12.9-x86_64-exton with support for “everything”. Most important is that I have changed repositories from Slackware 14.1 to Current. I.e. Slackware 14.2. KDE is upgraded to version 4.14.35 (latest KDE version). All other component software is also upgraded to the latest Slackware Current version by now. I may also mention in particular GParted 0.29.0, VirtualBox 5.1.26 (latest, not in Slackware’s...

iPhones, Linux and Service Discovery

Posted 05-14-2017 at 01:25 PM by Rod3775

Service Discovery

Service discovery refers to the process of getting additional information about resources in a distributed (e.g. networked) system. iPhones are particularly dependent on service discovery. This blog concerns the process of discovering services (specifically remote printer sevices) and IP addresses (e.g name service) and the various ways this can be done.

<Short digression>:

IP network messages can be sent in one of three ways,...

SlackEX (Slackware 14.2) Live DVD with KDE 4.14.27, Nvidia 375.39 and kernel 4.10.2-x86_64-exton – Build 170314

Posted 03-14-2017 at 09:44 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

SlackEX is based on Slackware Current/14.2. Slackware is the first widely-used Linux system, which is still developing. Slackware has existed since 1993. The older the fiddle the sweeter the tune or as we say in Sweden: “Gammal är äldst”.

Run your Slackware installation with the latest stable kernel – 4.6.4!

Posted 07-12-2016 at 12:01 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware Current (14.2) and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk and SlackEX. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 4.6.4-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 4.6.4 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released yesterday (20160711).

What’s new in kernel 4.6.4?
