KDE 3.5.10 Is Available

KDE 3.5.10 has been released and it's already on the Slackware-Current repository. Go get them and upgrade to the latest version of the KDe 3.5.x version. It's still one of the most stable version of the KDE version. I'm still using it even though Pat has put the KDE 4.1 on the /testing directory. I do use KDE 4.1, but it's on my office desktop which i rarely used for most of my daily activities. Anyways, here's the latest -Current changelog (it's nice to see the changelog gets updated after two weeks without any updates):
Tue Aug 26 22:21:31 CDT 2008
Upgraded KDE version 3.x.x to 3.5.10. Really, there's nothing wrong with looking back as long as it's something stable and dependable. It's good to see that KDE3 received this maintainance update. Thanks, KDE team! :-)

Running Rsync Via Proxy

One way to get the latest Slackware updates is by running rsync to syncronize your local repository and the main repository that hold the Slackware packages. Eric Hameleers has provided a great script called and how i modified this tool has been discussed on my previous post. In general, it works, except for one problem, when your computer is connecting to the Internet through a proxy.

My workstation at my office is connected to the Internet through a proxy, so i can't use normal rsync to work normally. I browsed the web and i found this site which tells us about how we should modify our squid configuration to allow rsync connection from any computer from our local networks. I asked my sysadmin to try this script. He agreed and he updated the squid configuration on the proxy.

Next, i need to update my environment variable RSYNC_PROXY to the host of the proxy and also the port. Let's say you are running a proxy on and port 8080, then you need to run …

NVidia Legacy Unix Driver Update

NVidia has released an updated legacy drivers to support X.Org 1.19 with ABI 23. It has been mentioned in the UNIX drivers, but you can directly find the drivers from the links below:
NVidia 304.134 (x86x86_64)NVidia 340.101 (x86, x86_64) I have tested the 304.134 driver and it's working great here. I can finally remove x from my /etc/slackpkg/blacklist file since it's a showstopper for me.
Aside from legacy driver, NVidia has also released their latest driver 375.26 (x86, x86_64), which brings support for newer cards and also many new features (including X.Org 1.19 with ABI 23 support).
