Build 140831 of SlackEX 14.1 live USB with kernel 3.16.1

Posted 08-31-2014 at 01:05 PM by exton

New features in version 140831 of SlackEX
SlackEX build 140831 comes as a ZIP-file for direct installation to an USB stick. I have replaced kernel 3.14-x86_64-exton with kernel 3.16.1-x86_64-exton with support for “everything”. KDE is downgraded to version 4.10.5 from version 4.11.1. All other component software is also upgraded to the latest Slackware version by now. I may mention in particular GParted 0.17.0 (latest, not in Slackware’s repositories), VirtualBox 4.3.14 (latest, not in Slackware’s repositories), AbiWord 2.8.6 (not in Slackware’s repositories), Gimp 2.8.10 (installed from source), GSlapt 0.5.3h, Firefox 24.7, Thunderbird 24.7, Samba 3.6.8 and GCC 4.8.2. Furthermore I have installed Grub2, which can be used as boot loader (if you want) after a hard drive install. Study the full package LIST.

Kernel 3.16.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released (20140814).
