My thoughts on Slackware, life and everything

Bear is working for its money


This is the bandwidth graph of the last 24 hours for my “bear” server, which I could rent thanks to donations made after the old “taper” server kept buckling under the load of serving Slackware Live ISO images.

Since I made the new Slackware 14.2 data available 24 hours ago, the server has been pushing out 1.67 Terabytes of data, at an average of 155 MBytes/sec. Needless to say that this server was a good investment, I could never have managed this on my old platform.
Thanks for the public interest and have a lot of fun with your shiny new Slackware 14.2 ISO (Live edition or regular installer)!

    By the way, I’m curious. Did you sort out that problem with the generic kernel refusing to boot on that hardware? Or do you just stay with the huge kernel?

    Niki, I just stayed with the huge kernel.
