# setup

Now, you can proceed with the Slackware64-14.1 Installation. The installation of the Full System (7.8GB of software) took 18 minutes.

When you get to the Lilo installation and you are asked if you want to add some kernel parameters, add this:

elevator=noop tpm_tis.interrupts=0 modprobe.blacklist=ehci_pci


elevator=deadline tpm_tis.interrupts=0 modprobe.blacklist=ehci_pci

We just got a 6 inch snowfall and things are bitterly cold therefore very dangerous for everyone. I now live in a small town and do not have to worry about clearing a long lane or access to my barn. That task(s) were a killer in itself.

Just paid a guy to clean my short driveway. Worth every dime to keep from having another heart attack.

I am going south for a while to warm these bones up and get some golf in. With low gas prices the trip will be cheaper...

It's snowing and wet with wind. Overcast with no sunshine for the past few days. I like to walk at least twice daily since I no longer live on the farm. Hard work that I cannot due any longer because of my health. I walk to my iPod music to get a good cadence for cardiovascular workout for my heart. I could use my bicycle but the area is covered with snow & ice. In my younger days I delivered mourning & evening newspaper routes using my bike with riser bars along with...
