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

PsychOS486 for i486DX/i586/i686 and newer computers

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]

I have finally had some time to compile the benchmarks for a series of GPUs on the new mini-ITX build.

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...
