New features in version 141220 of SlackEX
SlackEX build 141220 comes as a ZIP-file for direct installation to a USB stick. I have replaced kernel 3.16.1-x86_64-exton with kernel 3.18.1-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 4.3.20...

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest stable kernel – 3.18.1!

Posted 12-18-2014 at 03:18 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.1 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk, SlackEX and Exton|Defender. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 3.18.1-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.18.1 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released 20141216.
