Slackware64 nvidia-driver-compat32

EDIT: I added a new script for 195.36.24 as well as a script to compile libvdpau-compat32 on a 64 bit system. I never hear any feedback on this stuff... is it working for other people? Do I have errors anywhere?

I'm one of those people that personally don't like installing things on my system without having proper packages made for tracking the files. As such I edited the scripts on for an additional package to support this.

jdk1.5.0_08 install - can not execute binary file - x86_64 versus ia64

I took the same binaries and installed on ia64 architecture and the command java -version gives and error "cannot execute binary file"
For some reason, the wheels off my Mack truck won't fit on my bicycle. I intend to complain.

Where can i find ia64 linux version of the jdk1.5.0_08?

Set up a packaging system on an old laptop

Posted 09-17-2009 at 11:10 AM by henryxcrudos (henryxcrudos' Linux Projects)

I plan to set up a packaging-only system for VectorLinux Light on an old laptop (Acer Travelmate 212TXV). VectorLinux Light is a great, fast, lightweight Slackware-based distribution.

Stage 1: Setting up the system

Installation of VectorLinux Light 6.0

- Burned CD-R from ISO
- Installed distribution using the text-installer
- Booted

  1. X GUI Login screen not available, screen blanks after boot

Work around any technical limitations in the software...

That's taken from the dreaded Windows EULA. What kind of drivel is that? Probably the kind that encourages people to think of computers as appliances that should (Dare I say it!) just work... Well, it doesn't work that way for ANY computer system! OK so you might buy a PC from the same store you got your TV or fridge but it is not an appliance like those other items! It is a very sophisticated tool! Tools require knowledge...
