Slackware 13 Revisit

Filed under
Slack

In my Slackware 13 review mfillpot gave some suggestions to improve the Slackware experience and I thought I would give them a shot. First off, changing the init level to 4 to allow KDM to show up instead of this startx business. I was happy to note that Slackware had emacs. So many distros have vi and I never really learned how to use it well. So I changed the value to 4 and restarted.

So I wanted to test out sbopkg. Last time I reviewed Slackware many of the comments were about how it was not a pain that Slackware did not resolve dependencies, but rather a virtue. I see and understand their points, but I respectfully disagree. So mfillpot’s suggestion of sbopkg being like apt-get intrigued me. I went to the site he linked to. As I looked at the site I wondered if I wasn’t getting into a chicken and egg scenario. After all, how would I install this program for installing all my others?

KDE and Akademy

  • Akademy Day 4
    For most of the year, KDE—one of the largest free and open software communities in the world—works online by email, IRC, forums and mailing lists. Akademy provides all KDE contributors the opportunity to meet in person to foster social bonds, work on concrete technology issues, consider new ideas, and reinforce the innovative, dynamic culture of KDE. Akademy brings together artists, designers, developers, translators, users, writers, sponsors and many other types of KDE contributors to celebrate the achievements of the past year and help determine the direction for the next year. Hands-on sessions offer the opportunity for intense work bringing those plans to reality. The KDE Community welcomes companies building on KDE technology, and those that are looking for opportunities.
  • KDE Reveals Plasma Mobile
    There are a lot of interesting developments occurring in the field of Linux smartphones right now. With so many different options popping up, fragmentation is a risk, as apps built on one platform fail to migrate to another. KDE's new offering may help to make those apps available to a broader audience.
