the wordpress theme, and I like it too: as a plus, being responsive, it shows fine also on my phone.

Eric's use of WordPress to present his blog in a new format that is pleasing to my eyes is not a problem. Sure you can still get other previous information. What's wrong with that?

If you want to review that much information that could possibly help you in some way then too me that is a plus not a negative.

Have fun & enjoy Slackware!

Update slackware

I know about the slackpkg. But I like to do this manually as well.

This is what I do:

alias update="cd /home/kowalczyk/.updates/slackware64/ && lftp -c 'open ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackwar...ches/packages; mirror -c -e'"
alias changelog="cd /home/kowalczyk/.updates && rm ChangeLog.old && mv ChangeLog*.txt ChangeLog.old && wget ftp://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/slackware/s.../ChangeLog.txt -O ChangeLog-`date +%Y-%m-%d`.txt"

So when I login I just type changelog and it downloads the newest changelog. Then I do diff ChangeLog-DATE.txt ChangeLog.old and see if its something new.

If it is I type update and wait for the updates to be downloaded

Then as root I do upgradepkg *.t?z and */*.t?z if a new kernel is updated.

And run lilo / eliloconfig and do a reboot.

I like this way of doing updates/upgrades, even though it might not be a good way. But it works for me

I may start to include --install-new as well if there is some new packages also added.


And a huge thanks to Pat for this great distro and a huge thanks to Eric as well for his contribution
