'sli' is not 'slitex' ?

'sli' is not 'slitex' ?

Post by Ian Couroul » Wed, 04 Aug 1993 04:03:46

Thanks to all those that e-mailed and suggested that 'sli'
could be the slide macro package for TeX called 'slitex'.
Well, it appears that this is not the case (read on if

My original question was -

       I'm having a rough stab in the dark here and posting
       to a number of relevant (?) news groups.

       Has anyone used (or heard of) a program called sli ?

       DVIFILES = C++-adts.dvi C++-inherit.dvi \
                  C++-advanced-examples.dvi C++-mem-mgnt.dvi \

       .SUFFIXES: .sli .dvi
                sli $<

       all: $(DVIFILES)


Some suggested that I replace the 'sli' with 'slitex'.

tex and slitex appear to be the same (I originally tried tex):
-rwxrwxr-x  4 root       229376 Mar 12 12:39 /usr/local/bin/slitex
-rwxrwxr-x  4 root       229376 Mar 12 12:39 /usr/local/bin/tex

In any instance, the following occurs (with both tex and slitex):

% make
slitex C++-adts.sli
This is TeX, C Version 3.14t3
SliTeX Version 2.09 <8 Jun 1988>
*error.  See*manual for explanation.
              Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

The '.sli' files are plain text and have no directives such
as \begin{document} at all.

About the only thing that is non-standard text in these '.sli'
files is directives like this:

`push`: T $\times$ "STACK"[T] $\rightarrorow$ "STACK"[T]

and a few ^L characters as well.

If anyone is interested and wants to take a look at these files,
they can ftp to ftp.th-darmstadt.de:


I guess I'll just take them to a word processor and edit them manually
before I print them.

1. 'uname' is not updated after installing new '2.4.20' kernel??


using gentoo RC2.

I was using kernel 2.4.19.

when I did emerge 2 days ago, it downloaded a new kernel 2.4.20.

Ok, So I went to /usr/src and made a link to the new directory
and configured new kernel and build it (and modules, modules_install
as I have done zillon times before:

lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root  22  Mar  4 09:37 linux ->
drwxr-xr-x   16 root     root  840 Mar  4 09:36
drwxr-xr-x   16 root     root  840 Mar  4 10:02 linux-2.4.20-gentoo-r1

next, as usuall, I copied the newly compiled bzImage to /boot/bzImage

total 3944
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root      1485414 Mar  4 10:05 bzImage
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root      1283810 Mar  1 18:48 bzImage.old

next I rebooted. btw, I am not using lilo, but the other boot manager
I think it is called grub.

so, after I shutdown the system and boot, I select as before the file
/boot/bzImage using the command

now, when the system is up, I do 'uname' expecting it to say 2.4.20,
it is still saying 2.4.19 !

Linux mymachine.mydomain.com 2.4.19-gentoo-r10 #2 SMP Sat Feb 1
17:17:15 PST 2003 i686 Intel(R) XEON(TM) CPU 2.40GHz GenuineIntel

How could this be? is there another method to verify which kernel
I am running??
