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 […]

KDE 5_16.01 for slackware-current

 I had big issues with my Internet connectivity this past week, when my internet cable modem suddenly died. I was able to use a backup connection on my telephony modem but the 1 Mbit/sec up- and download offered by that outlet was not sufficient for the amounts of data I had to upload. So, I was very […]

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. So finally I had the time to cure this situation. I rebuilt kdelibs, kde-workspace and […]

Updated multilib packages for -current

The recent update of packages in slackware-current demanded a similar update in the set of “compat32″ packages for those who are running a 64bit Slackware multilib computer. On request, I have added two new packages: libaio-compat32 and lzo-compat32. Both packages cover a missing dependency, one for mariadb and the other for cairo. The massconvert32.sh script […]
