07-29-2004 Major Update

Changed the title of the site, so it will be easier to search in web engines. BTW if you search "insyte slackware" in google, this site will appear.

Changed file structure of the site, for my own convenience.

Changed graphical to GNOME, it seems more appropriate. Added allowing reboot/shutdown content there.

Changed my fstab, forgot to set user for floppy. Updated and uploaded my .bashrc file

Added setnumlock download for convenience.


Making this site is really fun for me. I mean if I ever crash my system ( played with udev a bit and I don't really know what caused it ), I'll still have an online guide on how to rebuild my system.

If we put ourselves to correcting spelling, we'll never get anywhere. I'm happy as long as they get the CLI syntax right.

Hey no prob.
I also still consider myself a newbie, coz everyday I learn something new to do in slack (though it would sometimes coz me to reformat and reinstall - right now I'm thinking of repartitioning to give /usr/local its own space)

But anyway, still have some more stuff to write for the site. Watch out for updates. Thanks for posting.

Bonus points for not using any images to provide backgrounds,borders and other prettyprinting. They would increase the download time AND mess up the formatting when I viewed them offline. Guess that filesize limit was a blessing in disguise

Well, the 200 kb limit is still an inconvenience because that will also include files that I could make available as downloads. But I can't complain because its free and the service is really great.

Hey, this is a much needed site! It sure is helping ween me from RedHat!

One thing I need to know is how to manually configure LILO to load from the MBR. During the setup of Slackware 10, I didn't select the "expert" mode for the LILO config. Apparently, the default setting is NOT to install LILO into the MBR. So now I have a Slackware machine that only boots off the bootdisk floppy and not the hard drive.

Is there a way I can manually configure LILO to boot from the MBR without entirely reinstalling Slackware 10?

Thanks!
