r6205 working well on eeePC-900a. Noted ALSA bugs checked, no harm no foul so far. Everything else seems OK.

After XP EOL last april, I realized that I am left with some pretty nice units that no longer has any decent Microsoft OS to run. One of my T30 laptops has been running Linux Mint for years, and is doing fine there, but I have some older units too that might need a little more lightweight distros. I assume that also the T23 can do well with Linux Mint, even though it's a bit weaker than the T30. So the two Thinkpads in question are my 600 and 770Z units. The 600 has a PII 266Mhz CPU and 192MB RAM. I can easily add another 128MB RAM, and the CPU can be upgraded to a 366MHz one, even though I prefer to not do the CPU upgrade. The 770 is upgraded to a PIII CPU and has maxed out RAM, but I don't remember the exact specs on it without booting it up. I have tried Linux Mint Isadora on the 600, and it worked, but CPU usage was between 80 and 100% all the time, and 100MB RAM was already in use as soon as it is booted up. So I believe any distro needs to be a little more lightweight than that.

This one usually boots up at between 40-60Mb
Open a browser, and it will jump to 250Mb.
Certain office packages also add quite a bit.

k3.18.110 working well here. eeePC900a (Atom n270) has no KB issues, still have not tried printer.

*** Noted SSBD issues mitigation in this kernel.***

As a side-note: check browser caches, and set to the same amount as the Level-2 (L2) on-CPU cache. Setting some of these to zero WILL bork FireFox. I will be testing L1 size shortly. The amounts are in Kb, so values of 512, 1024, or 2048, etc. /side

Some additional Meltdown/Spectre included

***Ext2 mem leak patched ***

ALSA: control: fix a redundant-copy issue
several usbip "racing" fixes
several tcp/ipv4 patches

Regards

Edit: I made some adjustments in the post below for slacko-5.7.1, having two versions, one for just the stock-gtk2, and one for using gtk+3.

If anyone using Slacko 5.7.1 is interested in getting "easytag-2.2.6" look here:

I'm glad to have found this for my older PC and laptop, both IBM/Lenovo, and a later Dell laptop, all of which liked the original Slacko 5.7 . The PC had Slacko 5.7 32 and ran well, but the FF didn't work well on current sites. I intend HD installs of this latest Slacko to see if those machines can have an extended life.

Is this the current thread for Slacko 5.7.1_r6231 questions?

Thanks so much to Sailor for this distro and to all who posted links for pets, etc.

As an update: Just burned a CD and did a full install in an ext2 partition on a 16G flash drive, am posting from it now. Excellent repository selections in PPM, FF runs very fast, and I'll experiment with packages on this install for now.

One odd thing, though: when I used the CD for the first time, and saved the session to the CD, then went to shut down, it asked for a password to exit the session, in a text dialog. I had to force a shut down with the power button.

Great job, Sailor.

This is becauuse you selected an ext2 file-system for the save. Its easier (with less breakage) to use ext3. No password needed, but not encrypted. Thats what firewalls are for ;o)

Yep. On the first hard drive install on a Lenovo desktop, there was no such problem. Just trying to save a file on the CD was the only trouble. The usb stick works well on other machines that will boot from usb. I like this version.

Running the r6251 version (K3.18.111). Laundry-list of stuff, quite a bit aimed at SSBD. FF27-configured and openssl 1.0.2o installed for the try-out. Posting from this now. I did have a browser lock-up forcing a hard-shutoff. I'll keep in touch if this continues. I loaded the newest FF27-tweak with reduced caches, and had a few tabs open. In my spin this has not been a problem.

There is one bug in this 111-update as fixed in yet another kernel update. IPv4 uses vti4, and it has an override. That override was mistakenly removed in kernels older than 4.16.

vti4: Don't override MTU passed on link creation via IFLA_MTU

is patched in k3.18.112, and comprises the full update.
This 112-update is 2018-05-30.

I may have bumped into this as mentioned above with browser lock-up (ne: IPv4 tunnel fail).

Regards

As a user report, on a HD installation to a Lenovo vista machine, after a few uses, shut down now reboots instead of powering off. No significant changes were made, only a customization of FF, installation of xine and thunderbird, and the attendant changes to default email and media player in setup.

It looks like the woof-CE slacko 14.0 was recently updated to "5.8CE". I built an iso for testing for it (to the 5.8CE folder).

Some things I noticed so far in it: many apps have been recompiled for slacko 14.0, including inkscapelite (with the rulers fix), e3 and picpuz were removed and lvm2 was added.
