PsychOS486 for i486DX/i586/i686 computers with CD-ROM drives

PsychOS486 for i486DX/i586/i686 and newer computers
https://psychoslinux.gitlab.io/486/index.html

PsychOS486 is a GNU/Linux distribution with i486DX computers in mind, hence the name. In other words, a numeric co-processor is required and the newer the computer, the better; i586 and i686 users are fine as well. PsychOS486 was made possible by "editing the snot" out of Slacko Puppy 5.3.1, a Slackware 13.37-compatible Puppy Linux distro. After booting, you are presented...

"Is Slackware dead 2020" thread closed

Posted 08-07-2020 at 11:11 PM by kingbeowulf

The discussion collapsed into nonsense before I could post my non-useful, dead Slackware, Year Linux Desktop, desktop. I had lost track of the discussion since I have had to continue to work with a 20% pay cut in the viral apocalypse that is the USA.

So here is a desktop showing neofetch etc for gandalf (main box, Slackware64-current multilib), aragron (new miniITX build, Slackware64-current), arwen (Lenovo Thinkpad T510 Slackware64-current), beorn (hobby server for gopher, httpd,...

Slackware64-Current (15.0): Ryzen 7 mini-ITX amdgpu vs. Nvidia Benchmarks

Posted 02-29-2020 at 05:01 PM by kingbeowulf

[posted on http://www.linuxgalaxy.org/]

I have finally had some time to compile the benchmarks for a series of GPUs on the new mini-ITX build. The purpose was to see if the amdgpu driver is ready to compete with Nvidia on a Linux powered game box. The GPUs choices are simply what I had available and fairly recent, except for the RX 5700 XT, which was a new purchase.

Updated 10-14-2019 at 05:05 PM by Lysander666

Earlier this month I conducted a discussion with a close companion and programmer who I will call M. M has been programming since the 1980s and has been using a host of different languages and operating systems since. Going from CP/M and Unix-based systems at work and home in the 1980s to Slackware in the 1990s and the 2000s, this discussion maps out his experiences and opinions on the world of free and proprietary software, parts of which will hopefully be of some interest. He is not, as far as...

ACPI configuration to handle AC adapter events in Slackware 14.2

Posted 09-13-2018 at 03:20 PM by gegechris99
Updated 11-13-2018 at 02:38 PM by gegechris99 (Scripts updated with commands cpufreq-info and cpufreq-set)

LQ thread Suggestion-use-performance-cpu-frequency-governor discusses which scaling governor would be most appropriate for Intel CPU using the intel_pstate scaling driver as those CPU only have the powersave and the performance governors.

Irrespective of the merit or not of changing the default scaling governor in Slackware for such CPU, at one point, the question of how to implement a change came up. In post #71, user abga made an implementation proposal that required changes to...
