Cross-posted from: https://theouterlinux.gitlab.io/Publ...s/SCLUB2GB.TXT

SCLUB is a really easy to use alternative to traditional music tracker software for DOS (and a W95/98 version) but "flows" more like a modern digital audio workstation. It also can be used to convert MIDI to MOD, to which most of what little converters that I have been able to find that...

LTSP-Setting Up from Scratch

Posted 12-15-2012 at 06:47 AM by beachboy2

What is LTSP?
LTSP stands for Linux Terminal Server Project. It is a free and open source system where a Linux server is connected to several terminals, thus allowing a group of people to simultaneously use the same computer. Applications are run on the server, and the terminals or thin clients, handle the input and output.

How to generate password

Posted 02-21-2009 at 09:56 AM by ErV

Generating password is simple:

password8.sh:
[code]
#!/bin/sh
cat /dev/urandom| tr -dc '0-9a-zA-Z!@#$%^&*_+-'|head -c 8;echo
[/code]
This script generates 8 characters long password.
To change number of characters, replace 8 with other number.
'0-9a-zA-Z!@#$%^&*_+-' defines character set used in password. If you need another charset, change this string to suit your needs.

[SIZE="5"][b]Making slackware packages from source[/b][/SIZE]

I'm posting this because some people have problems with making packages from source code, and howto where I learned how to do it isn't available anymore.

[color=red][b]WARNING![/b][/color]:
1) howto is pretty short and doesn't dive into details too much (although I initially thought about overview of commonly used build systems).
2) This doesn't work for all packages, only for most...

How to answer questions without wasting too much time

Posted 11-30-2008 at 10:29 PM by ErV
Updated 02-21-2009 at 09:51 AM by ErV

Okay, I've just got through another flamewar, so I decided to write a some info about answering questions without wasting too much time in the process. The content is based on personal experience, my own point of view, and isn't supposed to be absolute truth or something. I also don't expect someone to agree with me. Recommendations are written in random order, and are supposed to prevent wasting too much time typing replies, or breaking your keyboard too quickly.
Beware! Some people probably...
