Projects: Slackhammer, ZACL, testing Perl on Slackware-current

Posted 07-26-2018 at 09:01 PM by ttk (Unpopular Positions: One Geek's Take)

I try to stay focused on a small number of projects at a time, so that they get finished sooner, but I seem doomed to spread myself thin.

Slackhammer

Sometimes it's because someone gives me a nudge and gets me all excited. Earlier this week, Idlemoor pointed me at https://release-monitoring.org which tracks packages' upstream sources, which is one of the core functions of my Slackhammer project http://ciar.org/ttk/codecloset/slackhammer/

##slackware-help community support update

Posted 04-07-2018 at 07:09 PM by ttk (Unpopular Positions: One Geek's Take)

There is a ravenbot in ##slackware-help now providing one-line summaries of Slackware64-current ChangeLog entries as they appear:

Code:
2018-04-07 15:01:49 * ravenbot ChangeLog updated: 10 packages: btrfs-progs-v4.16, sysstat, kdev-python, exiv2, glib, glib2, pango, slang, dhcpcd and 1 more

systemd haters resource page

Posted 09-21-2017 at 12:05 AM by ttk (Unpopular Positions: One Geek's Take)

I've been putting links to relevant systemd resources into this page for my own reference, but enough folks have appreciated it that I thought y'all might like it too:

New ##slackware-help community support channel on Freenode

Posted 08-23-2017 at 05:58 PM by ttk (Unpopular Positions: One Geek's Take)

A new channel for providing Slackware community support has been created on Freenode.

It is similar to the previous existing ##slackware channel, in both charter and composition (a lot of the users in ##slackware-help are also in ##slackware).

The differences are mostly of tone and technology -- the new channel has a factoid-bot for easily pointing newbies to existing resources. For instance:

Code:

<tiddy> ttks: https://docs.slackware.com/slackware:beginners_guide
