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.

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

    Most people consider a college education the key to future success, but for many students, the cost is insurmountable. The growing open educational resource (OER) movement is attempting to address this problem by providing a high-quality, low-cost alternative to traditional textbooks, while at the same time empowering students and educators in innovative ways. One of the leaders in this movement is Robin DeRosa, a professor at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire. I have been enthusiastically following her posts on Twitter and invited her to share her passion for open education with our readers. I am delighted to share our discussion with you.

Linux 4.10 To Linux 4.15 Kernel Benchmarks

The ThinkPad X1 Carbon has been enjoying its time on Linux 4.15. In addition to the recent boot time tests and kernel power comparison, here are some raw performance benchmarks looking at the speed from Linux 4.10 through Linux 4.15 Git. With this Broadwell-era Core i7 5600U laptop with 8GB RAM, HD Graphics, and 128GB SATA 3.0 SSD with Ubuntu 17.10 x86_64, the Linux 4.10 through 4.15 Git mainline kernels were benchmarked. Each one was tested "out of the box" and the kernel builds were obtained from the Ubuntu Mainline Kernel archive. Read more
