Slax-5.1.7 md5sum

Filed under
WebSite

I recently d'loaded slax-5.1.7 and checked the md5sum that was listed at Distrowatch and found it to be incorrect. I checked at the Slax site to verify the error and found the correct one:

a716b9bc1a47c8afb4b25d40e77d2660 *slax-5.1.7.iso

Here's a excerpt from the Slax forum:

"Distrowatch does (again) link to an older version of md5.txt file (hosted on some non-updated mirror). The bad file is my fault but I can't do anything with it now. This confuses people a lot.

Would somebody be so kind and report the problem to Ladislav? (distrowatch owner).
100% correct md5.txt file is here: http ://ftp.linux.cz/pub/linux/slax/SLAX-5.x/md5.txt

Moreover distrowatch is using older logo for SLAX, I hope it will switch to new one sometime.

I hope this is the proper place to post this to get in touch with the temp host of Distrowatch-Susan Linton who is sitting in for Ladislav.

Thanks for the quick

Thanks for the quick response I will pass it on to Tomas.

re: slax md5sum

He said he fixed it earlier this morning. The logo will have to wait for Ladislav to return. You're welcome. Smile

You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?

re: Slax-5.1.7 md5sum

Sure. Ladislav is on vacation, but Dr. Zhu is available, and he's usually the one who takes care of the release postings. I sent him an email on the subject. I'll update you as soon as I hear anything. He's on Shanghai time tho.

The logo might have to wait. I'm not sure I should take it upon myself to replace that file even if I have the correct file permissions to do so. Worst case scenario, I'll write Ladislav and he'll fix it when he gets back.

Thanks,
Susan

Intel Xe Graphics Squeeze Out More Linux Performance By Flushing Less

Intel's "Gen12" Xe Graphics should be performing marginally better with next quarter's Mesa 21.2 feature release for its open-source ANV Vulkan driver. Merged today into Mesa 21.2-devel is an ANV driver improvement to reduce the tile and data cache flushing for Gen12. This in turn translates into small but measurable performance improvements across a variety of workloads. Read more

KDE: Akademy, Bug Triaging, Packaging Work by Norbert Preining, and Krita on Simplifying Grammar Checks for Manual

  • Akademy 2021 at Home

    Once again I plan to be at Akademy. I almost silently attended last year edition. OK… I had a talk there but didn’t blog. I even didn’t post my traditional sketchnotes post. I plan to do better this year. I’ll try to sketchnote again, we’ll see how that works out. Oddly enough, I might do the 2020 post after the 2021 one.

  • KDE's Nate Graham: Bug triaging is the foundation of quality and we need more of it

    Bug triaging is a largely invisible and often thankless task. But it’s the foundation of quality in our software offerings. Every day, our users file between 30 and 50 bug reports on https://bugs.kde.org, and often up to 100 right after a big release! Many will be duplicates of pre-existing issues and need to be marked as such. Quite a few will be caused by issues outside of KDE’s control and this also needs to be marked as such. Many will be crash reports with missing or useless backtraces, and their reporters need to be asked to add the missing information to make the bug report actionable. And the rest need to be prioritized, moved to the right component, tagged appropriately, and eventually fixed.

  • Debian's Cinnamon desktop maintainer quits because he thinks KDE is better now

    Norbert Preining, the maintainer of the Cinnamon desktop packages for Debian is quitting as he no longer uses it - though others have volunteered to take his place. The origins of the Cinnamon desktop go back to 2011 and the release of the controversial GNOME 3 desktop, which introduced radical changes. Some Linux users preferred the desktop metaphor offered by GNOME 2.x, including the Linux Mint team. The MATE desktop was a fork of GNOME 2, while the Linux Mint folk made Cinnamon, a fork of GNOME 3 designed to retain the design of GNOME 2, using the Mint Gnome Shell Extensions (MGSE). Cinnamon later became a full fork of GNOME 3. Cinnamon remains the default desktop for Linux Mint (which also offers MATE and Xfce editions), but is also available for other distributions including Debian. Mint itself is based on Ubuntu, though there is also a Linux Mint Debian edition (LMDE).

  • Simplifying Grammar Checks for Manuals.

    Like most online manuals, the Krita manual has a contributor’s guide. It’s filled with things like “who is our assumed audience?”, “what is the dialect of English we should use?”, etc. It’s not a perfect guide, outdated in places, definitely, but I think it does it’s job. So, sometimes I, who officially maintains the Krita manual, look at other project’s contributor’s guides. And usually what I find there is…

Mozilla: Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Lobbying, Firefox Tweaks and More

  • Mozilla joins call for fifth FCC Commissioner appointment

    In a letter sent to the White House on Friday, June 11, 2021, Mozilla joined over 50 advocacy groups and unions asking President Biden and Vice President Harris to appoint the fifth FCC Commissioner. Without a full team of appointed Commissioners, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is limited in its ability to move forward on crucial tech agenda items such as net neutrality and on addressing the country’s digital divide.
