Slackware 12 is out
So I just dated Slackware-current. I looked at the changelog and Slackware 12 is out!. If you want to download the .iso’s heres is the link: http://slackware.osuosl.org/slackware-12.0-iso/ You don’t need 4-6 unless you want extras, pastures (outdated stuff), sources, and what not (you don’t need 3 if you don’t want KDE or tetex). So lets get on with features.
Since I just updated today I’ll do a full review in the near future. But here are the main selling points:
- Linux kernel 188.8.131.52 (also supports smp)
- KDE 3.5.7 and xfce 4.4.1
- X.org 7.2.0
- Comes with HAL (even tho I don’t care for it)
- GCC 4.1.2
- Firefox and Thunderbird 184.108.40.206
- Pidgin 2.0.2 (formally GAIM)
After over 14 years, Slackware is still rocking.
Look for a full review in the next few days
