Hello.

The latest episode is available, and this time we're discussing security and trust within the OSS ecosystem. Why do you use software written and distributed by people you don't know?

Blind [and ignorant] faith in the software and those responsible for creating it. Similar to when you get on a bus that says "City Centre" on the front of it (i.e. you don't question where the bus is going and/or you'd think the driver was delusional if he wasn't ultimately driving this bus to the city centre) much is the same attitude with software. You download it, you install it, and you expect it to do exactly what the documentation states it's designed to do and nothing more. End-users often become annoyed or hostile and belligerent when it doesn't.

Predominantly, in the open source community (and certainly with regards to Slackware), developers have only the best intentions with any software that's built and maintained. That's something we can be thankful for, at least.

While I didn't work for Red Hat (thank goodness), I did work for a company that created software to help manage and facilitate car dealerships. (E-mail advertisements, financial transactions, quotes, etc, etc.) My employer thought it best to migrate from the Microsoft platform to CentOS servers for dealer clients and Fedora Core for employee workstations. I was hired into the support staff department to write documentation and answer any questions about Linux for the tech support and customer support call center departments. I rarely dealt with car dealership clients directly. Employees were only familiar with Microsoft products.

The biggest issues every day was fixing failed database migrations/imports/exports, E-mail campaigns at the dealerships crashing the on site mailer daemon, and most of all: failed system upgrades on CentOS. At that time CentOS 5 was the latest release and it was actually quite common to see dependency hell and failed batches of monthly updates. My employer supported between 5 and 6 thousand dealerships.

Every once in a while I go check out how CentOS has progressed, as well as Fedora. After the nostalgia ends, I kick myself in the head, realize I am not flexible enough anymore to reach my head, and go home to Slackware.

So... While it is true I became a Slackware user due to my outrage with SystemD, I was convinced to switch to Slackware because of the design and stability. K.I.S.S.

The latest episode is available, and we're talking about developing stuff, workarounds and things of that germane.

Latest Slack Chat episode is available. Phil talks about his 64-bit aarch64 project and tries (in vain) to convince Stuart to buy a Raspberry Pi4.

Thanks a million!

We really enjoy making the Slack chat podcasts and have a lot of fun in doing so.

Hello!

Happy new year!

We're moving SlackChat to the new Slackware ARM YouTube channel, so the final audio-only episode is now up, and we have a quick update with the status of Slackware ARM as of Jan 2021.

Phil and I have just recorded episode 5 for the new channel and I aim to get the first two episodes out within the next couple of weeks.
If you want to Subscribe to the channel now, you'll be notified when the first episodes go live.

Enjoy!

It's unfortunate to see the podcast move from an open platform (RSS) to a completely closed, capricious, censored platform (YouTube). I do use YouTube for some things but it's way less convenient - the YouTube app sucks major s on all platforms, and does not allow listening to programs in the background without paying money to YT which I won't do.

It's moved to video because we're showing things on the screen- it's not for background listening, although I'm glad you enjoyed us waxing lyrical :-)

Thanks, I'll check it out sometime using youtube-dl or the iina plugin. YT is now doing a great job of blocking ad-blockers, so sc them and I'll download the clean video rather than watching ads for fart pills.

You can also use one of these download-from-web apps to grab the video file, or just the audio, and use the file outside of YouTube.
