Slackware on Pandora, Slackware Live Edition

  • SlackWare 14.1 on Pandora: Everything is Awesome!

    I hope that line is not trademarked by LEGO… anyway, the point is that Slackware 14.1 on the Pandora is a great distro. I had tested it in the past but I had not given it enough of my attention then, and I now realize my mistake. Don’t get me wrong: Super Zaxxon is great and all, but if you want to enhance the utility factor of your Pandora, Slackware is one of the best ways to do it, without losing much of SZ either.

  • Slackware Live Edition, updated

    During the past weeks I have been working on my “liveslak” scripts for the Slackware Live Edition. Check out my previous articles about Beta1 Beta2 and Beta3 releases for these scripts, they contain a lot of background about the reasons for creating yet another Slackware Live, as well as instructions on the use of the Live ISO images and their boot parameters.

Slackware Linux 14.2 Beta 1 Brings Linux Kernel 4.4 LTS and Pulse Audio

Filed under
Slack

Slackware Linux, a complete 32-bit and 64-bit multitasking "UNIX-like" system that is currently based around the 4.4 Linux kernel series, has been upgraded to version 14.2 Beta 1 and is now ready for download.

Slackware Linux is probably the oldest Linux distribution that’s still being maintained, and it managed to keep the same kind of development model for a very long time. There are no official repos and most of the changes, fixes, and new features are added by its creator, Patrick Volkerding.

Slackware Live Edition – Beta 2

Filed under
Slack
  • Slackware Live Edition – Beta 2

    Thanks for all the valuable feedback on the first public beta of my Slackware Live Edition. It allowed me to fix quite a few bugs in the Live scripts (thanks again!), add new functionality (requested by you or from my own TODO) and I took the opportunity to fix the packages in my Plasma 5 repository so that its Live Edition should actually work now.

  • Updated multilib packages for -current
  • (Hopefully) final recompilations for KDE 5_15.11

    There was still some work to do about my Plasma 5 package repository. The recent updates in slackware-current broke several packages that were still linking to older (and no longer present) libraries which were part of the icu4c and udev packages.

GIMP Roadmap

  • GIMP's Progress In 2016, What's Ahead For 2017
    GIMP contributor Alexandre Prokoudine published a lengthy blog post today looking back at what were the accomplishments for this open-source image manipulation program in 2016 and some of what's ahead for the program this year. [...] Among the work still being done before GIMP 2.10 is released includes cleaning up libgimp, changing linear/gamma-corrected workflows, and 16/32-bit per color channel support, a new color management implementation, and more. GIMP 2.10 will hopefully ship later in 2017.

Linux 4.10-rc4

  • Linux 4.10-rc4
    Things are still looking fairly normal, and this is the usual weekly Sunday rc release. We're up to rc4, and people are clearly starting to find the regressions. Good, good. it's a slightly more random collection of fixes from last week: the bulk of it is still drivers (gpu, net, sound, usb stand out), and there's the usual architecture work (but mostly just x86 this time around), but there's a fair amount of fixes all over. Filesystems (xfs, btrfs, some core vfs), tooling (mostly perf), core mm, networking etc etc. This is also the point where I start hoping that the rc's start shrinking. We'll see how the tiny rc2 affects things - this may technically be rc4, but with that one almost dead week, it feels like rc3. But I'm crossing my fingers that we'll have less next week. Regardless, go out and test. This was not a huge merge window, I think we're in pretty good shape for people to dive in.. Linus
  • Linux 4.10-rc4 Kernel Released
    The fourth weekly test release of the Linux 4.10 kernel is now available. For those not up to speed on Linux 4.10, see our Linux 4.10 feature overview. There is a lot of great work included like Nouveau atomic mode-setting, Nouveau boost support, AMD Zen/Ryzen work, new ARM board/platform support, EXT4/XFS DAX iomap support, ATA command priority support, Intel Turbo Boost Max 3.0, and much more.

One more week has passed in our lives, but the development of the Linux kernel never stops, and we're now seeing the release of fourth RC (Release Candidate) build of Linux kernel 4.10, which appears to be fairly normal, yet again, bringing only a collection of assorted bug fixes and improvements from last week.

Debian from 10,000 feet and First Release Candidate of Installer

  • Debian from 10,000 feet
    Many of you are big fans of S.W.O.T analysis, I am sure of that! :-) Technical competence is our strongest suit, but we have reached a size and sphere of influence which requires an increase in organisation. We all love our project and want to make sure Debian still shines in the next decades (and centuries!). One way to secure that goal is to identify elements/events/things which could put that goal at risk. To this end, we've organized a short S.W.O.T analysis session at DebConf16. Minutes of the meeting can be found here. I believe it is an interesting read and is useful for Debian old-timers as well as newcomers. It helps to convey a better understanding of the project's status. For each item, we've tried to identify an action.
