Slackware: Slackware 13.1 Beta 1
2010-05-07 09:57:50 Source: Email [ Print | 0 Comment(s) ]

Slackware 13.1 Beta 1 has been released

"Hi folks! We have some pretty big changes today, with an update to the latest KDE SC 4.4.3, and the addition of support for ConsoleKit and PolicyKit which have been enhanced to use shadow authentication. Thanks to Andrew Psaltis for doing some great work on polkit-1, and to Robby Workman for spending months following the sometimes random developments coming from the CK/PK camp. :-) Thanks to Eric Hameleers for leading the KDE 4.4.x Slackware development and handling the out-of-tree testing through http://alien.slackbook.org/blog/. And with that, we're calling this Slackware 13.1 BETA1. A stable release should be just around the corner..."

Slackware: Slackware 13.0
2009-08-28 10:08:51 Source: Email [ Print | 0 Comment(s) ]

Slackware 13.0 has been released

"It's that time again! After many months of development and careful testing, we are proud to announce the release of Slackware version 13.0!

We are sure you'll agree that the improvements made in this release more than warrant the major version bump up from the 12.x series. We've done our best to bring the latest technology to Slackware while still maintaining the stability and security that you have come to expect. Slackware is well known for it's simplicity and the fact that we try to bring software to you in the condition that the authors intended.

Probably the biggest change is the addition of an official 64-bit port. While the 32-bit (x86) version continues to be developed, this release brings to you a complete port to 64-bit (x86_64). We know that many of you have been waiting eagerly for this, and once you try it you'll see it was well worth the wait.

Slackware 13.0 brings many updates and enhancements, among which you'll find two of the most advanced desktop environments available today: Xfce 4.6.1, a fast and lightweight but visually appealing and easy to use desktop environment, and KDE 4.2.4, a recent stable release of the new 4.2.x series of the award-winning K Desktop Environment. We continue to make use of HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer) which allows the system administrator to grant use of various hardware devices according to users' group membership so that they will be able to use items such as USB flash sticks, USB cameras that appear like USB storage, portable hard drives, CD and DVD media, MP3 players, and more, all without requiring sudo, the mount or umount command. Just plug and play. Properly set up, Slackware's desktop should be suitable for any level of Linux experience."

Slackware: bind 10.2/11.0 recompile (SSA:2009-015-01)
2009-01-16 10:59:46 Source: Email [ Print | 0 Comment(s) ]

Updated bind packages are available for Slackware 10.2 and 11.0 to address a load problem. It was reported that the initial build of these updates complained that the Linux capability module was not present and would refuse to load. It was determined that the packages which were compiled on 10.2 and 11.0 systems running 2.6 kernels, and although the installed kernel headers are from 2.4.x, it picked up on this resulting in packages that would only run under 2.4 kernels. These new packages address the issue.
