Thinkpadophilia

Am I crazy? A lot of people say so, and they can't all be wrong.
I was so impressed by my recently acquired Thinkpad (T 410), that I've bought another one. A refurbished X 200: Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 2.4 GHz, 2 GB RAM, 160 GB HDD, 9 cell battery. All for £83. The only thing wrong with it was that it had Vista Business edition installed, but that was easily cured. It's now feeling a lot healthier running Slackware 14.1.

reinstalling slackware

Posted 02-04-2015 at 01:56 AM by jheengut
Updated 02-04-2015 at 05:49 AM by jheengut (completing)

I always have a knack for testing and deploying Linux/BSD distros on my Big Black Box.

But somewhere last week I pulled in the latest kernel, configured and compiled in less than an hour.

Some hours later when I remembered to reboot , to my distraught I realised that I managed to disfigure my lilo.conf file and bricked totally my slackware install.

Most of my time was lost into finding a good ide cable for my old 500GB hard disk and when I found one...

Among them a terminal emulator (LXTerminal), a Web Browser (Chromium), PCManFM (file manager), NetworkManager, GParted (Partition Editor) and Synaptic (Package Manager).

"Systemd sometimes doesn't shutdown" -- collecting links and info

Posted 01-31-2015 at 10:46 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 02-09-2015 at 09:59 AM by the dsc

It's very sporadic, somewhat rare, so I won't really open a thread on the forums themselves, but I'll just collect links and snippets here hoping there's some way to fix it, if it doesn't get fixed "by itself"/by systemd/debian developers first.

Quote:
I have Mate desktop and Slim installed:
halt_cmd /sbin/systemctl poweroff -i
reboot_cmd /sbin/systemctl reboot -i
like this, when I request shutdown all applications exit and then slim restart

Itching to write a new GPC article

It's been more than two years since I wrote something about the General Purpose Cartridge for military rifles http://ciar.org/ttk/mbt/guns/gpc.2012-10-23.html

I wanted to hold off so I could improve my ballistic analysis software, collect more empirical evidence, and learn something about the GPC candidates and legacy cartridge upgrades under development by various military institutions, but these developments have been slow in the coming.

When I've had time to spare...
