Welcome to the Slackware Documentation Project

I have some questions…

  • Who is the original author of this article at Slackwiki?
    • Why is no credit other than the link given to that author here?

and

  • Who is the original contributor on this site?
    • Revision history shows user yenn as original page creator.

and

  • Why has Martin Matějek done a rewrite and posted no discussion here as to why it was needed?
    • Disregard, Martin. I remember our conversation from the mailing list about this. ~vtel

Just curious…

I'll reply here and (hopefully) summarize everything. First of all I'm not original author, so I wanted to give at least a little credit to original author. I wrote “Unknown Slacker”, because I really don't know, who author it. Once in a while Slackwiki delete (inactive?) users and original author's account was deleted. It even deleted mine, so you can't see my username all along in revision history. You have to trust me, that I wrote it ;) Maybe I should written just “unknown”.

Original submissions (1, 2) to Slackwiki were very crude and minimal and original author never touched it again. Any other revisions are mine (although there isn't my username in history), so I entitled it as “mine” article when I asked on mailing list.

And for the “Rewritten” part, I should re-phrase it. It applies to rewrite on Slackwiki, not this wiki. Credits to original author made it little complicated.

  • rewritten now

I hope it's all clear now ;)

Yes, thank you, Martin. Crystal clear, indeed. :-)

I added a hibernate lock trick, but I only tested it with pm-hibernate. I don't use any of the other ways so I dunno if it applies to them. It would be nice as well to tell users how the resume works with 'heavy' DE/WM environments concerning the computer lock. — zithro 2012/09/19 16:35
