AP hotspot problems (RTL8188CE, Slackware current)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 7, 2014
Well, the problem is that my android phone cannot locate my laptop hotspot. Android tablet can't see it too.
I am creating hotspot with ap-hotspot script, using hostapd. Iw list shows that my wifi card (RTL8188CE) supports AP mode.
Interesting thing is that while I was using Ubuntu on the same laptop, I have successfully shared internet, but I cannot now on Slackware.
Thanks for help.

Slackware current Synaptics touchpad problem

[SOLVED] Problems booting Slackware 14.1 fresh install with UEFI
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 16, 2013
So I managed to get an installed Slackware64 14.1 system installed today, but I have some problems wiht regards to UEFI that I'd like help resolving.
First off, I had to make a USB stick with the Slackware tree, using the included usbimg2disk.sh script available within the Slackware tree. However, I wasn't able to boot this install media using UEFI for some reason, but I booted it using the BIOS emulation on my motherboard (I think... the two options I had were "UEFI: Kingston..." and "USB: Kingston..."; the UEFI didn't work but the USB one did). So I got everything set up, the installer correctly detected and mounted my EFI system partition, and packages were installed. I made the USB boot disk as recommended. LILO comes up for installation, but there's nothing on it about "not being recommended" as is suggested in README_UEFI.TXT and I never got a menu prompt for ELILO or GRUB2 or anything after skiping the normal LILO install.
So, my install is co
Editing an .exe file (DroplineGNOME and Slackware Current)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 5, 2005
Hello, I'm just wondering if there is a way to use a text editor to view .exe files in linux? It gave me an error when I tried with gedit, so I'm curious if it is possible at all or if I need a windows emulator. Thanks ahead!
[SOLVED] Booting blind with slackware current....

Slackware current w/ 220.127.116.11 kernel + VMwareserver 1.0.7
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 9, 2008
As regular readers of this forum know, I'm a user of VMware-server, and also an adventurer who uses the -current branch of Slackware.
After the huge update that was released last Friday, including a jump to the 18.104.22.168 kernel, VMware-server (as expected) stopped working.
But Google is our friend, so I found a patch made by a guy called Kang here and it worked flawlessly.
Just download the patch, untar, and run the runme.pl script.
For those interested in technical details, it seems the problem is caused by the removal of the "kernel_thread" feature from 2.6.27 which was marked for removal since August, 2006 but finally dropped in this kernel.
I read that the newer VMware-server 2.x doesn't use this but haven't tried it to confirm the information.
some questions and problems with slackware 13.37
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 1, 2011
i just installed 13.37 and i am having problem connecting to my phone's hot spot. i have a Nokia N86 (symbian) and i am using joikuspot for making hotspot. the program says on some computers you should enable "Ad-hod only mode" to be able to connect to the Wi-Fi network. and i can't connect to it using wicd. it just doesn't connect without saying anything.
and a question: can i change my 13.37 to -current just by enabling current mirrors and doing an update? won't it damage my installation?
Is slamd64 worth removing slackware current?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 9, 2005
Hi, I currently use slackware 10.1 with mostly current packages installed, but I know it doesnt have an amd64 version, but I found, Slamd64, http://www.slamd64.com/, I only want to try it instead of my slackware, if it'll actually increase the speed or anything.
Because I like to run my amd64 chip to its full potential, but I'm comfortable with where I am on my slackware box now, but if it will increase the speed by enough, or make it actually worth it.
I just want to know if it will be worth it, or will I regret it?

location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 20, 2008
Can anyone lead me to the page where I can download an i386 DVD installer -.iso image- for Slackware -Current, please. [ HTTP / FTP / Torrent link ]
If I understand correctly Slackware -Current builds are development / test builds, like Debian Testing.
Many thanks in advance. - Jags
