and now I realize, I have forgotten to turn on the samples and the documetnation, which I would need later from qt creator. oh noooo, some packages should maybe exist as binaries

I am not a megalomaniac! I do have Power! I have two Slackware DVD iso's to prove it, and the Support of the Slackware Community. And the machines to implement that Power! Even God respects me. Well, so I was told by one of his agents.

Boy, I tell's ya: Slackware gets no love from these guys.

What did are BDFL Pat do to piss off the Linux Foundation? Or are they just corporate shills?

Almost every "Best distros ..." article I ever read is crap.
This one is no exception, sadly...

Seriously, I don't understand why they bother to write them

This is how I managed to configure PRIME Sync in my Optimus laptop:

Dell Inspiron 14 3443 (distro Slackware64-current)
iGPU Intel 5500 (driver i915)
dGPU Nvidia Geforce 820M (driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-375.26)
Kernel 4.8.14 (CONFIG_HARDENED_USERCOPY is not set) boot option nvidia-drm modeset=1
Xorg 1.19.0

The solution is posted in this link:

+Ryan McQuen​ yes this happened to a post by +Dimitris Zlatanidis​ a few weeks back about slpkg.

Unfortunately for his post, it languished there for about three weeks until I did a random check to clear out SPAM and such.

Good that you reached out to one of us mods +Thiago Silvino​​ and I'm at a loss to explain why this has been happening lately to longtime members here.

Hi friends,
How I can fix this integration with gtk and kde?

The theme is a bit out of place

Three years ago I started a YouTube series on installation, usage and configuration of Slackware 14.0. I felt it was time for an update, so here is the first video in the new series covering the base installation of Slackware 14.2 (64-bit).

I am taking down:

https://seattleslack.ryanpcmcquen.org

I am hoping not too many of you relied on it (judging from the usage graphs, very few were downloading from it).

Although I'm a little sad to take down the server, when I originally brought it up there were very few places to download the Slackware-live ISO, also taper was struggling, now there are several mirrors and +Eric Hameleers bear server is far more capable than mine ever was. It will also save me a little money (and I hope to invest some of that back in to Slackware in other ways).

Konpai!

About this community

Welcome to the Google+ Slackware Community! What is Slackware Linux? The Official Release of Slackware Linux by Patrick Volkerding is an advanced Linux operating system, designed with the twin goals of ease of use and stability as top priorities. Including the latest popular software while retaining a sense of tradition, providing simplicity and ease of use alongside flexibility and power, Slackware brings the best of all worlds to the table. The Slackware Philosophy: Since its first beta release in April of 1993, the Slackware Linux Project has aimed at producing the most "UNIX-like" Linux distribution out there. Slackware complies with the published Linux standards, such as the Linux File System Standard. We have always considered simplicity and stability paramount, and as a result Slackware has become one of the most popular, stable, and friendly distributions available. We hope you enjoy using Slackware Linux as a member of this community!

In case you wonder why I am serious about wireless communication improvements and P2P, look what it costs me to get a dang download at 12-25.5KB/s "High Speed" (1/4 Dial-Up Speeds of the olden days) data!

For what? I do email, G+, Hangouts, Google Music; rarely watch YouTube. And fetch a piece of software. 20 Hours left to TRY to get Android Studio!! Most downloads fail a few hours into it.

Like I said, if it kills me, I will get this Project up and rolling out with Slackware! This is hurtful.

Aloha,

I am fixing to install Slackware again on a Solid State Drive on my X260, but no matter what I do cfdisk only sees 477 GB of the thing. If I fly Knoppix to look, I see a full 511 GB with 80 bytes of something there.

How can I tell cfdisk there is 511 instead of 477, then lay my partitions? This is my first Solid State drive experience. For the most part it acts like a spinner except for this strange to me phenomena of only seeing a 477 GB drive. Fedora too only recognizes a 477 GB drive there. Debian sees 511.

I know I can just lay down a scheme using Debian, then put Slackware on that, but I wanted this to be a cfdisk job. I need to get this down for the future. I retract this statement.

I just remembered, I did just that when I first tried to figure out a way to get Linux to find my mobile broadband. Nothing I installed would work! Until I found out my machine shipped without any wwan card at all. I thought "upgradable" meant generic and not soldered in. I since bought the dang EM7455 and installed it, and to my complete amazement the network manager only needed to know TMobile was my carrier, and poof! Up came all my crud. But in my trials, I had Fedora on XFS. Then dropped Slackware on that with XFS. In both cases I only could find 477. I had Lenovo ship me a couple restore sticks thinking maybe it's some voodoo spell. The Windows installed on 477. So I went to cfdisk and deleted everything.

I installed Debian with btrfs and then wiped that clean. Looked with cfdisk and found a 1.1 GB "Linux Swap" and deleted that; 477 GB of unpartitioned free space. Look with Knoppix Live, 511 GB with 80 bytes of something. All free space unpartitioned.

I wish I could explain it better; it's my hope it's not as freaky as it is to me right now. I'm baffled. Any pointers on how to grab this whole SSD to lay another XFS on with Slackware is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

+Alex Frąk not private as in Non-F/OSS. I think most everthything I want to build already exists in repositories in one form or another. I just need to piece it all together. The gadget I am trying to materialize is aimed at being fully F/OSS as can be. This is why I am being kind of a Nazi about certain hardware. I do not want to design anything that is stuck to a piece of hardware that is proprietary. This thing has to be able to be built at home by individuals anywhere to meet the standards I hope to keep. If this is what you mean? If someone is able to compress it all into a tiny chip and sell that, more power to them. On my end, I am only interested in making a thing anyone else can make. Its basically an amateur radio with a computer in it. If you go to arrl.org - Home this will give you an idea of how HAMS do radio. I grew up in a HAM world. I hope I got your question right?

Would I like to be able and sit down and hack out my own working LVM as if I knew what I were doing? You bet! But the way I seen Slackware CURRENT fly on my old antique X301 on XFS (the Specs on this machine are like a quarter of the first Android G1 or less) 4 GB HD, 52mb RAM USB 1.0 CD Drive; I may have got the nomenclarure wrong? Its a 1998 Thinkpad. I stuck a cheapest chinese USB wifi nib in it and got online to see if YouTube would spin, and it did! A darn fitbit has this much torque. So I know Slackware will do what all I need it to do. The radio can be made with vacuum tubes. Or it can be made (Texas Instruments has a few) from components mounted on circuit boards, or bought in chips or boards like BeagleBoard.

What I want to build is not a whole lot different than the equipment HAMS did with Packet Radio in the 1970's and 80's. They had dreams of hardware that have become reality today. I just want to make those dreams come true, to do more than send packets of data to light up a bulletin board and talk dirty to one another. These radio pioneers were doing more than what I thought was just being perverts; they laid down what is today our cellular networks.

They had envisioned what more could be done IF this or that could happen. Those IF's are a dime a dozen these days in Mouser Electronics. It seems the world is caught up in a frenzy of perpetuating ARM devices to support the ISP's. Whatever. The point is we have everything we need already from software to hardware to create a Peer to Peer Network that can accomplish even more than the Internet does for us today. Eliminate ISP's and so forth.

I am getting way ahead of myself, but Google comes up in my rants. I see Google as a P2P Network. Google itself is made up of Nodes. I think something like Google could be an assistant to the P2P Network if it truly implemented Artificial Inteligence. Our P2P devices can then be real assistive devices.

Also the way we interact with these will be more on an Interpersonal level. Embedded Flexable Ceramics are a reality. Sensors embedded in these devices can do more than flash pixels and make noise. I want to go it one more level and then some.

Slackware can do.

Not too far fetched 😎

Me personally, I am not entertaining ARM any longer. I think too much time and talent has been diverted to accommodate ARM, and I have a sneaky suspicion it's not an accident. My opinion.

I wish we could get more folks on MIPS for instance. We don't really need all the firebreathing hardware like octocore Thz to get the job done nicely.

X86 has come a long way, but look deep inside Intel, insideous.

We still have quite a plethora of more Free options that can do the job nicely. I for one shall go that way, with Slackware.

This works really well! It takes a bit to boot but once up - it seems much more responsive than Knoppix or Ubuntu or Fedora Live versions (IMO). I need to try the persistent image on USB with LUKS home dir. I ran my desktop off of Knoppix like this for months so I'll be able to make a better comparison.

This worked really well.  I've been making them and giving them to friends.  Everyone's impressed with the speed, usability and security.

Well, the exception was my son who doesn't like KDE and wanted more games. ;-)

Hi, I have recently switched to Slackware (Salix OS) which is now I am using. I am very satisfied with everything except for some. I am unable to install any dock application. I used to have "docky" in Ubuntu but now I cannot use docky or either Plank. Please share me simple HOW TO to install plank on my Salick OS. Thank you!
