Dear Friends:

I woke up this morning to one of my "sugar gliders" laying on the bottom of the cage.
I could not tell, but I think it was the female, "Sweetie". She seemed to have been
struggling as of late moving about the cage.

If you don't know what a Sugar Glider is, I encourage you to go to images.google.com
and search for
Code:
sugar gliders
or see the attachment.

I can't be a complete asshole, my...

LAMP

A LAMP setup is perfect for a Content Managed System like Wordpress:

Use The dd Command to Make a Flash Drive Bootable

Posted 03-14-2017 at 05:54 PM by Ztcoracat

Sometimes Unetbootin doesn't work and leaves things on the drive behind.

Using the dd command is very useful and only takes a few minutes.

First execute; as root, fdisk -l to find out what drive the flash drive is.
I'll use /dev/sdg as an example.

To reformat run as root:
Code:
mkfs.vfat /dev/sdg -I
Unmount the drive:
Code:
umount /dev/sdg
Than to write the .iso to the flash drive run:
Code:
dd bs=4M

Posted 03-14-2017 at 08:44 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”.

New features in version 170314 of SlackEX
I have replaced kernel 4.7.1-x86_64-exton with kernel 4.10.2-x86_64-exton with support for “everything”. Most important is that I have changed repositories from Slackware 14.1 to Current. I.e. Slackware...
