When there's a major update I usually like to simply reinstall the OS. I'll backup my home directory and anything else relevant (perhaps just a few config files in /etc).

So I've installed, got access to the internet, and updated the official packages. Now what?

In Slackware I access slackbuilds from the command line using sbopkg

Kernel update

Posted 07-10-2017 at 04:43 PM by zapwai
Updated 07-10-2017 at 07:25 PM by zapwai

After the first few kernel updates you put yourself through you will definitely feel much less anxiety, and it basically feels like updating every other piece of software in the system. (Choosing your own options and building your own kernel will also help to remove any fears, but has a steeper learning curve.)

Partitions - MBR vs. GPT

Posted 07-10-2017 at 08:32 AM by hydrurga
Updated 07-22-2017 at 03:31 AM by hydrurga

The two main partitioning schemes used on Linux and Windows/DOS are MBR and, more recently, GPT. This article doesn't cover the Mac's original Apple Partition Scheme and additional partition schemes used by various other operating systems.

To understand partitions, it is important to remember that storage devices divide up their space into sectors which are traditionally 512 bytes in length. However, since 2010, most large hard disks (called Advanced Format (AF)) now have physical...

Hot keys and shortcuts

Posted 07-09-2017 at 08:06 PM by zapwai
Updated 07-10-2017 at 07:38 PM by zapwai (It's a never-ending list)

I picked these up from using crunchbang; my favorite macros / hot keys are as follows.
The windows key is meta.

meta + e = editor (emacs)
meta + f = file manager
meta + w = web (firefox)
meta + t = terminal (konsole)

meta + d = desktop (minimize all windows)
meta + m = minimize window
meta + o = maximize window

meta + k = simple-screen-recorder (though lately I just use ffmpeg directly in a script)
meta + F1 = cb-fortune...
