Indonesian Mirrors for Slackware 13.1

As you probably know, Slackware official sites never published ISO images on their site and users or mirror sites will publish their ISOs created from the repository of the -Current tree.

It took some time to propagate the ISOs as most users are rushing to the main mirrors so it would overload them in the process.

Some of the member of Indonesian Slackware Community has access to several local mirrors and we have coordinated the process of mirroring the Slackware 13.1 ISOs for Indonesian users so that they could download the ISOs faster as they are connected to IIX networks (local Indonesian network which should provide faster access to the server).

Here are some of the Indonesian local mirror sites who has finished mirroring Slackware 13.1 ISOs:

Kavalinux (DVD Only)
Duta Wacana Christian University (CD and DVD)
Kambing @ University of Indonesia (CD and DVD)
ICT PNFI KEMDIKNAS (DVD Only)
Gadjah Mada University (CD and DVD)
Mulawarman University (DVD Only)

Please let me know if you hosted a local mirror sites in Indonesia so i can add them here.

At last, even though the ISOs are provided for free, please consider to help Slackware Project, either by using subscription or buy Slackware merchandise or even donate to Slackware Project via Slackware Store.

Indonesian Slackware Community are planning to do so in short time. If you are interested, please join ID-Slackware mailing list.

Have fun with Slackware 13.1, the best release of Slackware currently Yahoo

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 rsync_current.sh 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 192.168.1.1 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).
