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

University fuels NextCloud's improved monitoring

Encouraged by a potential customer - a large, German university - the German start-up company NextCloud has improved the resource monitoring capabilities of its eponymous cloud services solution, which it makes available as open source software. The improved monitoring should help users scale their implementation, decide how to balance work loads and alerting them to potential capacity issues. NextCloud’s monitoring capabilities can easily be combined with OpenNMS, an open source network monitoring and management solution. Read more

Linux Kernel Developers on 25 Years of Linux

One of the key accomplishments of Linux over the past 25 years has been the “professionalization” of open source. What started as a small passion project for creator Linus Torvalds in 1991, now runs most of modern society -- creating billions of dollars in economic value and bringing companies from diverse industries across the world to work on the technology together. Hundreds of companies employ thousands of developers to contribute code to the Linux kernel. It’s a common codebase that they have built diverse products and businesses on and that they therefore have a vested interest in maintaining and improving over the long term. The legacy of Linux, in other words, is a whole new way of doing business that’s based on collaboration, said Jim Zemlin, Executive Director of The Linux Foundation said this week in his keynote at LinuxCon in Toronto.

Car manufacturers cooperate to build the car of the future

Automotive Grade Linux (AGL) is a project of the Linux Foundation dedicated to creating open source software solutions for the automobile industry. It also leverages the ten billion dollar investment in the Linux kernel. The work of the AGL project enables software developers to keep pace with the demands of customers and manufacturers in this rapidly changing space, while encouraging collaboration. Walt Miner is the community manager for Automotive Grade Linux, and he spoke at LinuxCon in Toronto recently on how Automotive Grade Linux is changing the way automotive manufacturers develop software. He worked for Motorola Automotive, Continental Automotive, and Montevista Automotive program, and saw lots of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) like Ford, Honda, Jaguar Land Rover, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru and Toyota in action over the years.

Torvalds at LinuxCon: The Highlights and the Lowlights

On Wednesday, when Linus Torvalds was interviewed as the opening keynote of the day at LinuxCon 2016, Linux was a day short of its 25th birthday. Interviewer Dirk Hohndel of VMware pointed out that in the famous announcement of the operating system posted by Torvalds 25 years earlier, he had said that the OS “wasn’t portable,” yet today it supports more hardware architectures than any other operating system. Torvalds also wrote, “it probably never will support anything other than AT-harddisks.” Read more
