restoring the configurations of a GNU/Linux system with git

Posted 11-18-2015 at 01:16 AM by jheengut

As a Slackware user, I tend to customise my configurations file a lot, ie the files in /etc. I try to avoid using programs that write into /etc, this helps to have a certain consistency among my configured files. This also has the advantage to understand and optimise for performance and speed while leveraging the work load to a minimal effect.

A Gaming Laptop working well under a GNU/Linux distribution is not a dream anymore.

I currently posses a MSI GP60 2 PE Leopard Gaming Laptop onto which Slackware was flawlessly...

youtube-dl says bye bye to ffmpeg

Posted 06-11-2015 at 05:36 AM by jheengut

I use the python program youtube-dl almost on every website to download videos legally.

There have been/are some website whereby the protocol used is not understood by youtube-dl.

So a more powerful program such as ffmpeg is used if it can parse the particular stream. Advantage of ffmpeg was that the command used was simple to use and the ability to modify the options were easy. But its greatest problem was that it could not resume the download and had to start from...
