So no more Icedove? Mine went ahead and updated and migrated my Icedove settings. (Once I had done an 'UP', the next restart of icedove resulted in the migration) Sure enough, it says 'Thunderbird' in the window title...

[Qt]to no avail.
It is smooth. I tweak it for my cpu and unload some of the video drivers - like trident - that I'll never use and pick up a bit of performance.
Using VSIDO for an NFS file/media server. Need to get it going as an (internal) ftp server; I carried over my ftp configuration from slackware (or so I thought), but something isn't right now. But all things considered VSIDO as server = happiness.
Great to hear that about a VSIDO server... How do you go about the tweak and removal with the kernel? That would be a great How To if you ever felt up to it
This is the method I use for a debian kernel -
You need to install kernel-package, fakeroot, and build-essential for this to work.
There is also a site called kernel seeds (kernelseeds.org I think) that has some good commands to determine your hardware - appears to be down at the moment.
The only additional step I do is after the make oldconfig command. Once you have answered all the questions, use the command -
to bring up a graphical menu of your kernel config file. I make these changes -
Change the cpu type to my cpu - the default is generic 64 or 32 bit
Change the maximum number of CPUs to what you have or 2x what you have - the default is 512 CPUs and something like 8k of memory is alloted for each one.
The real changes are in the drivers sections - usually your hardware isn't going yo change, so you can remove plenty of stuff you don't have - like broadcom ethernet devices and trident video cards.
That decreases the size of the compiled kernel, as well as memory needed since those drivers are dropped - and won't get loaded.
Save the new config and finish the steps in that linked guide.
The performance increases are really only slight - it's more about building a more efficient kernel designed for your computer.
The Slackware beginners' guide and Arch Wiki have good HowTo's for building kernels that are generic build instructions.
