google chrome in slackware

i am a diehard google fanboy. so i finally decided to make the switch to using chrome over firefox. dont get me wrong, firefox is amazing and i will still continue to use it for testing and such. however, chrome is waaaay better.

i am using slackware 13.1 for this, so all the slackbuilds links will be for 13.1.

download and install the ORBit2 slackbuild

download and install the GConf slackbuild

download and install the google chrome slackbuild

and you should be all set to use chrome in slackware!

wow with ms kinect

epic. amazing. unreal. i can hardly contain myself as i write this post.

 

original slashdot article

 

 

awesome amazon reviews

dual function design – a wicked funny review of the 3 wolf moon t-shirt

the hottest of the hot (for now) – an awesome review of dave’s ghost peppr naga jolokia hot sauce

incident

your highness

this movie looks amazingly funny. i loved pineapple express. then, combine zooey deschanel, natalie portman and james franco, instant win!

 

it is a restricted trailer, so there is swears, etc in it

 

 

android 2.1 on my cliq xt

this was a very easy process. i followed this guide and i am using the adlxmod XT 2.0 beta 1 rom. i did try applying the patch, however, when it fully loaded my home, back, menu and search buttons all inputted letters and numbers and the volume keys were and /. so i ended up reverting back to just the adlxmod.

i have not had a chance to fully test out the rom. the initial boot was flawless and so far i have not had any issues other than the apps that are running on boot and the phone being stuck on silent (i have not read the rest of the several threads on modmymobile) i have not made any calls on the phone yet either, i did see on this thread this:

- Dialer: Must toggle speakerphone button to get sound. Same is true when using a WIRED headset. When you recieve a phone call you must also toggle speakerphone to hear the person.

here is the list. it is not in any order yet.

dmidecode

i found the command below here. what it does is grab your service tag number using dmidecode.

dmidecode | grep 'Serial Number' | head -1

after seeing how that worked i decided to look at the dmidecode output. a lot of it wasnt anything i could actually use, however, i did find this one particularly useful when recompiling the kernel.

processor info from the BIOS with flags:
dmidecode |grep 'Processor Information' -40

it gives a good look at the processor flags, more detailed than cat /proc/cpuinfo, however, cat /proc/cpuinfo listed off more flags. it also states on the dmidecode homepage they say

Beware that DMI data have proven to be too unreliable to be blindly trusted. Dmidecode does not scan your hardware, it only reports what the BIOS told it to.
