Build server was down for a while

I've moved the build server for Slax modules to a different hosting. Due to that, all updates to Slax modules were put on hold for some time. Now it is running again.

How does it work? In general, I needed entire Slax running on the server. Furthermore I needed 32bit and 64bit versions at the same time. Thus the ideal solution was to purchase just one machine, and run virtualbox in it, which holds both 32bit and 64bit Slax versions running together. All modules are built in both virtuals on a freshly rebooted Slax, and once each module is built, the OS reboots to ensure that the currently finished (compiled) module won't affect the next one.

So, there are few modules still in the queue. Will be built soon. If your module is yet still missing within a day, feel free to contact me. Thank you.

Sounds like a solid solution :)

Hi Tomas M.,
My note is offtopic, but I want to ask you, when will you add to your web (slax.org) some other way to donation (by paypal or flattr for example) and when will you done "request link".

Thank you
Sorry for my english.

If you scroll down a little at the Slax "home" page, you can see a form where you can order a Slax-USB-Drive.

I do believe it's an interesting way to support Slax.

I'm looking for the ntp module.
I see that it's available on old.slax.org for slax 6
Is it available for slax7?

also, it would be nice to move the old forum or create a new forum on slax.org

It would be nice to have category called NEW or similar for modules younger that 2 weeks (for example).

to mocabilly : I know, that I can buy USB flash drive with Slax. Even I bought it in December 2012. But now I do not want to buy USB flash drive with Slax again. I want send some bucks to project directly by paypal or flattr or pledgie or something like that.
