I've posted a newer BOINC buildscript to Slackbuils.org. See the discussion here:
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...4/#post5619471
It should be a bit easier now to get BOINC running on Slackare. All dependencies are on SBo. Please be sure to read the README!

Compilation and installation order:
  1. libwebp

Keeping Route53 updated

Posted 08-12-2018 at 12:54 AM by rocket357 (Musings on technology, philosophy, and life in the corporate world)
Updated Today at 05:36 PM by rocket357 (typo!)

I have dual ISP connections at home due to the uptime requirements of working from the home office.

Spent the better part of the night screwing around with installing OpenBSD on a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ (note the subtle extra character right at the end, there). It's irritating that a device can go from Version "3 B" to "3 B+" and so much changed. Spent a good bit of time goofing around with dtb files and trying to find the magic combination that would allow me to boot. Got close a few times, but the ethernet port refused to show up.

Ok, perhaps this is just an...
