Computer algebra systems (CAS) and numerical modelling software

Posted 08-09-2018 at 01:29 PM by kingbeowulf

As many of you know, Slackware ships with a heap of software for the main distribution, but does not have a binary repository like some other distributions for additional. Hence, a volunteer organization: Slackbuilds.org (SBo), as well as others too numerous to mention.

For CAS and numerical calculations, covering a huge range of mathematics, including basic algebra, calculus, elementary to very advanced number theory, cryptography, numerical computation, commutative algebra, group...

Nvidia Slackbuilds.org updates for Slackware 14.2 stock kernel

Posted 05-28-2018 at 07:09 PM by kingbeowulf

Given my recent hectic work schedule, I am drifting behind a bit in my SBo updates. However, I was able to squeeze out a bit of time to update test a the Nvidia-390.59 proprietary drivers for Slackware 14.2 stable kernel 4.4.132 updates. So far so good. I haven't had time to test the multilib compat32 yet (Steam, WINE, etc).

Let me know of any issues, especially with the pure 32-bit Slackware. The only 32-bit Slackware install I have available is a MSI Atom netbook, besides a qemu...

Accessing linuxgalaxy.org from the outside world

Posted 12-16-2017 at 02:09 PM by kingbeowulf

After some maintenance on the antique hardware and a new hard drive, I decide to upgrade to slackware-14.2. All seemed ok until I noticed (months later) that www.linuxgalaxy.org web site was no longer accessible from the outside world, as was murmur ans ssh. All worked well from inside my network. Therefore, it's not a web/murmur/ssh server configuration. The firewall script is passing though the correct ports - even turned it off for a bit and no change. Thus, its either:
  1. OpenWRT port forwarding

linuxgalaxy.org down for cleaning and upgrades.

Posted 09-04-2017 at 02:56 PM by kingbeowulf

My hobby server is down while I fix up the ol' gal. The boot HD was an antique 40GB IDE Seagate that has started to flutter a bit. 15+yrs continuous use. Not bad. I'll move data to a new 1GB WD SATA drive and move on up to Slackware-14.2 "real soon now." I might even get done by the time current hits RC1 ! At this point I am not sure if I'll finally toss this old 2000 vintage HP Compaq d530 CMT (P4 2.66Ghz, 2GB). I had neglected cleaning it for a bit, and the case had quite a few cobwebs...

Getting iOS 10.x working with Slackware 14.2

Posted 03-10-2017 at 06:54 PM by kingbeowulf
Updated 06-10-2017 at 05:26 PM by kingbeowulf (Updates)

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...
