Bitcoins for life

It looks like BitCoin is getting huge popularity nowadays. This virtual currency is now traded at around $970 per 1 BTC. I'm experimenting with bitcoins myself too. Do you have some spare bitcoins? Are you willing to donate a fraction of BTC? If so, I will be very grateful so I could experiment more :)

Money out of thin air is not useful. You deserve real compensation.
Make a "Donate" button and write how much you want to Slax is not dying. I ask all users to support me.

Tomas M 2013-12-08 12:01

Well, my intention is not to collect donations for Slax here, just to play with the bitcoin numbers :)

Igor 2013-12-08 12:31

Well, my intention is not to play with numbers bitcoin here, just work with fresh Slax :)

Are you looking for patterns? :) I'm afraid there's an army of powerfull ASICs against you nowadays.

I've mined BTCs some time ago, at a rate where half of my house was kept warm by ATI cards in the winter :D And with the great investment skills I have, I managed to sell ALL of ~684 BTCs at $6,21 IIRC. Me poor moronic dumbass, have nothing to share now.

There's also LiteCoin, which is already treated as silver in analogy to BitCoin being the gold. And well, winter is here...

I created a small Slax tools, here is a download link: http://ulozto.net/x6PLkG2b/slax-tools-zip

@TheKnightOfKing
To successfully install the boot records on your USB drive from Windows, you must be running as an administrator. Using just a "user" account results in the failure you observed. So, login to your Windows (I'm assuming you use Windows 7) as the administrator account, then click on the BAT file to ake your USB drive bootable.

Wizard57M 2014-01-01 16:47

@Chriss01cz---it would help a bit if you had a description of what your tools are, purpose, which architecture (32 or 64 bit) it's for. Otherwise, most more tech-savvy users will not and should not click on questionable links.

Hi, brothers.
It is my first post in slax blog, past some falls!!
I'm with Igor! But, i'm here for express that i like to find a SLAX that no have "slax changes". In another words: a OS that no make automatic alteration on the media that it boot from. What i make in my SLAX 6? I rename the folder "slaxchages" to "waste". Then, in the boot time, the OS is forced to go in "live mode". It is a half solution! It will be the best if the changes will be put in one file in /tmp and, if you wish, save in /boot of source medium of the OS. How i can contribute with the Slax philosophy? Some sites are like dead sites and others with only machines in there. I think that are LIVE forever!

Ronaldo Brandao Mafra 2014-01-03 09:59

Somebody are want to install the SLAX in one HD or pendrv or sdcard! All you need to make this job are in the slax-iso! Boot SLAX from the CD drive; partition and format the medium were will install the SLAX; mount the new medium; copy all content in the CD for there; then, go to the folder /boot of new medium (ex: /mnt/sda1/boot) and rum ./liloinst.sh and RETURN; if no problem, them, you done a complete intall of SLAX!!! Congratulations!

Oh, sory, i forget of present me! :(
I'm a 59's man who live solitary in a smal city in the state of Minas Gerais, Brazil. I write for us in one smal cell-phone. I know about eletrical and eletronics engineer. I know about yours work since slax5 (2005). Then, i know about us. Some in common? We will be? More? Now i go to the end of this blog. Here is for news and important issues or direct acess with the Tomas. By!

Jaidee Gonzalez 2014-01-07 03:09

Yeah. I also started experimenting with...

I stopped now. I guess I need to go back checking about.

Wanrltw Baguvix 2014-01-14 04:49

salam :)
hi slax
i want to translate the site to arabic
because a lot of word are wrong :(
add me

Janis Ciemgals 2014-01-21 08:06

Hello,Tomas!
First, i want to say, i search around to find way to contact you directly ( a form in a site, or an email), and do not find any. i think, it make a feedback about your distro, and problem notification, really hard.

second - why i write that - strange things. in a last week i download a
Slax English (US) 7.0.8 32bit zip.
i get also kingston DTSE9 8 Gb usb flash with native one partition with vfat (fat32) filesystem on it.
i unzip and copy zipfile content on a slax folder in a flash. i get free about 600 megabytes. i also download a lot of modules, and put it in /modules directory under a /slax
firstly i get problems to make this usb bootable under slackware 13.37 - cd /media/KINGSTON/slax/boot/ sh bootinst.sh write a

Partition /dev/sdb1 seems to be located on a physical disk,
which is already bootable. If you continue, your drive /dev/sdb
will boot only Slax Linux by default.
Press [Enter] to continue, or [Ctrl+C] to abort...

* attempting to install bootloader to ....
/sbin/extlinux: not an ext2/ext3 filesystem: .
Error installing boot loader.
Read the errors above and press enter to exit...

ok, i find a win xp system and make bootable from that. then i try to put it in computer with asus p8h61 motherboard, 16 gb ram, and core i3 3220 processor - it boots, and fastly get to text
"Triggering udev events: /sbin/udevadm trigger --action=add"
and then it lock-up. no any another actions for 5 minutes, numlock key and capslock also do not alter a indicator state on keyboard - suystem look completely freeze.
then i put that stick on old ibm lenovo computer with celeron - and get a working slax on default parameters, although it is boot slowly. when i choose "copy to ram" option, i get "cp:write error: not free space on device" in "copy to ram stage" - ram there is about 970 mb. all "slax" folder on my usb stick is about 940 mb big.

Janis Ciemgals 2014-01-21 08:10

oh yes, and there i a lack of "memtest" as choice of at start booting.....:(

Efrain Moriarty 2014-01-21 15:52

>$970 per 1 BTC, omg, Are you serious?

Ronaldo Brandao Mafra 2014-01-30 09:15

Fellows, i see that yours blog for mobile phones are in update. The decision of make the vga (640x480pixels with refresh of less than 60Hz) like first setup of x or kde is a good idea to stay compatibility with all hardware.
Another issue is that the SLAX need one introduction text with some history and suggestions ( like the use of xorgconfig and to make .sh files for many command line in sequence). It is all for while.

How to burn ISO for CD to USB from SLAX downloads.
I use free utility Rufus for Windows (search on Google). This is for the first time only. Run SLAX from USB, add for example a program, turn Slax off. Then I use UltraISO for Windows (search on Google for torrent or for portable version), mark all USB files and folders and save as ISO in any folder (menue - file - save as). From now you can save all next changes by UltraISO and burn to USB by UltraISO (menue-bootable - write disk image). It takes a few minutes and you will have SLAX snapshots from zero to the last your modification. My zero snapshot was 242 MB, last working 1100 MB (Libre Office and a few programs).

Ronaldo Brandao Mafra 2014-02-13 08:05

Are much distros today! And some one seems to work like Slax. Ex.: the irish distro Porteus. The Slax (by the wikipedia) is Czchoslovakian. Somebody can put more capabilitys of slax in the wikipedia? Simplicity of copy, intall, use and update; full modularity; run completely in ran; full compatibility with old and new hardware; rum from pendrive without need of "mechanicals drives", best relation ability/space...! Slax need more tutorials that tell haw to use it! And more propaganda of your virtues. For me, slax is in first place in relation of the others in some aspects! And much users of slax do not know all the features present in this distro.
Another idea is: make a virtual drive of cd, for transmit files in a .iso image and recive it without need of cd drive. It is only a suggestion!:)
All i had received in my e-mail is spans!!! Winter?!

Ronaldo Brandao Mafra 2014-02-13 12:23

In the last post i said that "slax are in the first place in relation of the others in SOME aspects". Please, substitute the word SOME to MANY. My english is poor! And i need to practice more it! :/

Ronaldo Brandao Mafra 2014-02-15 08:23

I had received many letters about bitcoins! Are spams? Things of Tomas? The cristian do not search money, but, yes, goods dialogues.
Bads intentions people are for all place. Warning for the ingenuouses! Caution!:)
Like slack's, slax's ride with caution! First sleep and then awake! If nobady answer me, all agree what i said! Or is a icely reception? Tomas is out, in holiday of last slax version? It is only suppositions! Patience!

Ronaldo Brandao Mafra 2014-02-19 08:43

I went to the site of bitcoins of Tomas and all seems that nobady donate one bitcoin there (Looking the dates). But, looking the graphics, are much bitcoins there! I do not have bitcoins and i know nothing about this!
Brother Tomas, the only vitamin that are easy oxidize is the vitamin C. For this, i recomend a supplement of only 120mg. Eating fruits and a normal food you have all the vitamins and minerals that you need. Don't use this supplements of vitamins, like a solution for all problems! And you, your wife, your kids and the japanese of aufs are well!

Ronaldo Brandao Mafra 2014-02-19 11:57

I read about bitcoin in the wikipedia. And i think that all money who change your value more than 5% for year is not a way decent of change values! For me, i don't by this things! Else, i use a simple mobile phone: nothing of criptografy or big waste of energy of my computer with this issue. Kidding? Who warn, friend is!

Ronaldo Brandao Mafra 2014-02-19 13:52

Magic not exist in exchange world! Make the counts: one win and other waste! The ideal is the just price. I see that today your computer are full of long numerical and alphabetical codes (like long site names)! I am sorry for this! I isn't you. In the more, i can not to be you. The only thing that i can do is to get for you my sincere opinion. I speak too and you nothing! Too far of a dialogue! In my e-mail no letter arise from you. Sorry! It is too late?

uray meiviar 2014-02-19 15:05

I build CryptoSLAX distro based on SLAX 7.x for cryptocurrency mining if anyone interested in mining bitcoin and another altcoin

uray meiviar 2014-02-19 15:05

sorry forgot to add link for cryptoslax it is here at http://www.cryptoslax.web.id

Ronaldo Brandao Mafra 2014-02-22 17:04

Hi, Tomas. If i don't belive in the slax way, i wasn't here! All the distros who are up in seek is for beginers (who do not learn by your own way). The search engine use the metod of seek by the sites, not the use of the OS in the computers. The philosophy of modules need stay in evolution! The minimum module for the command line, one for internet, one for x and kde, ...! This is the mode for the user make your own OS with nothing know about C++ or bash shell script or compilations, etc. This is the best use of memory ram and space. The secret word is the EASY. The intellectual is the minority of people and he see these things of other mode!

Ho Kin Chung 2014-03-05 07:52

Slax which can been use new Version ?

I waiting long time .

Thank !

Jakub Sedláček 2014-03-06 06:37

Hi Tomas, I would like to ask about one issue I'm trying to tackle with SLAX (7.0.8/Kernel 3.8.2) currently.
I would like to boot SLAX on a machine with a few more serial ports, and I naturally ran into the default serial 8250/16550 driver limit of four ports. Since the 8250_core is in-built with the kernel, I can't use the modprobe directives to override the four port limit. So the only solutions are - kernel parameters - tried nr_uarts=, 8250_core.nr_uarts= and 8250.nr_uarts=, but none seems to have any effect on the driver, or to rebuild the kernel with CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_RUNTIME_UARTS and CONFIG_SERIAL_8250_NR_UARTS set to higher values, but I don't think that I know enough to reliably do that. Would you have some suggestion or advice on this?

Bdimych Bdimych 2014-03-11 01:25

Hi, can I buy Slax USB with bitcoins?

Igor 2014-03-14 11:37

Once you can about all the bullshit to write, you can write about the new OS better Slax? Slax died if anyone noticed.
