Yep man, you are correct. Anyway, as I run a different kernel, I think it was a good idea to install the modules shipped with Slackware to go along with huge. Is is full monolithic? I forgot to mention the firmware. I had them under '/lib/firmware/radeon' to work with my old GPU and the new ones seems to be under '/lib/firmware/amdgpu'. Thanks Slackware again. Lack of planing, enthusiasm and lack of sleep.

Huge gave me a chance to retake my system and adjust my settings. It's not the first time I fscked things around and, probably, it'll not be the last one

Thanks to pointing things out. I hope the huge kernel keep around to help baseheads like me

Hi,

I now spotted the error.
I shouldn't say "outside", but "out of generic kernel".
It means that modules are built at the time of building the generic kernel and that is what is shipped.

The huge kernel does not contain all the possible divers.
Most of the time you are going to be able to load into huge kernel, the modules built for generic kernel.
But sometimes it won't work and you'll spend hours trying to figure out what the fuck is happening.

Although huge is quite convenient, there are still cases when you need an initrd (e.g. to use LVM2).
I haven't tried it, but I don't see a reason why huge wouldn't work with an initrd (as long as there is no conflict between the built-in modules and the ones that initrd tries to load).

And as a final note, secure yourself an USB stick with Slackware installer, it will always allow you to boot the machine.
I don't have one, but there is another Slackware desktop to help, if needed.

Article is an interesting read, but comments are more enlightening about the whole 4.4.29/30 thingy...
http://lwn.net/Articles/705220/#Comments

Anyway, 4.8.7 and 4.4.31 are in review at present, e.t.a. friday/saturday for anyone who still has any faith left in the stable kernel series at this point.

Yes, but the packaged modules come from generic kernel build.

Your statement said 'there is no such thing' referring to slack huge modules.
Try building the slack huge kernel
without the slack huge modules
ie make modules_install
see how it turns out.
Thanks

Hi,

To clarify, I mean that the modules that come as package with Slackware are built using generic kernel and not the huge kernel.

Bug - sendmail binary doesn't get removed when removing sendmail

This has already been discussed in the following thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi....php?p=5630082

But I've been advised to also post it in this thread, to hopefully be picked up by the developers. Thank you

Please pardon my off-topic comment, but.... OH MY GOD!!!

Xfce has long development cycles, but it's an unusually good and solid product.

Just a heads up:

http://blogs.perl.org/users/todd_rin...reak-cpan.html

I would like to plea that perl v5.26 not be adopted until the CPAN installation clients (at least cpan(1) and cpanm(1)) are fixed as described there, or if it is then PERL_USE_UNSAFE_INC=1 should be added to /etc/profile (but that is IMO the inferior option).

The current patch for this proposal suggests that . will only be removed from @INC if Perl is built with -Ddefault_inc_excludes_dot. Hopefully Slackware can ignore this stupidity and move on, even (especially, in fact) when 5.22.3 is released as a security update for Slackware 14.2 to "fix" CVE-2016-1238.
