Saving network signons

And guest's history is hugh, for a freshly booted system, is there a command to delete old history? history -c && history -w should clear it.. EDIT: history -c clears the present shell history buffer and history -w writes that 'cleared' history to the .bash_history file... or maybe just cat /dev/nu...

OpenSSL version

Got it from here the only thing about using the 'current' repo for rc3 is that openssl is now compiled against a newer glibc(2.35 : 2.33), which may(or may not) be a problem... that's why i suggested 15.0 patches.. so here: https://slackware.uk/slackware/slackware64-15.0/patches/packages/ also, you...

Open Folder as Root - PCManFM

Also it would be grateful if you could tell me the advantage in having a dbus connection :) I couldn't find it it's mainly so that the mounted devices shown in the side panel of the root instance don't show extra 'nonesense' entries like 'pts', 'dev' etc.. and also in eg. in an editor spawned from ...

Open Folder as Root - PCManFM

ok.. had another look at this.. not sure how to fix that with the pcmanfm actions approach.. but: there's the existing ~/.local/share/applications/pcmanfm-root.desktop file all that needs to be done is run: update-desktop-database ~/.local/share/applications/ which will create: ~/.local/share/applic...

NodeJS

I'm trying to install nodejs. Using getpkg a nodejs-16.14.2-x86_64-1.xzm was built, but surprisingly it misses some libs: libuv, libicui18n.so.70 and who knows how many more. I wonder why getpkg didn't take care of dependencies for me. a couple of things: 1. getpkg is a simple script that simply se...
