DVD subscription missing from store.slackware.com


Does anyone notice, the DVD subscription option is missing from the Subscription link on store.slackware.com? Only CD set is there.

No more DVD release for future version? I like the DVD one.

Unlikely. More likely a glitch in the store's site. Send them an e-mail, they're quite responsive.

From store;
Quote:
Sold Out
Slackware Linux 13.37 DVD
(special dual 32-bit/64-bit edition!)
I would think that PV would not buy another batch unless there are/were orders to fill. So 'Sold Out' means the store will not get more for either subscription or packages. Possibly a new Release soon?

Contact an see what they say.

I have sent in my question. No reply yet.

I think the sold out status of the DVD should not affect the option to subscribe of future DVD release.

Hi,

Slackware does not have a Release Candidate at this point.
So there would be nothing to show at this point in time other than what is now available which would be stable 13.37.

If you wish to get '-current' use Alien_Bob's-script -mirror-slackware-current.sh to download '-current' and create the ISO for CDROM or DVD.

You can subscribe starting with the current release, or starting with the next release.

Thanks for the link. I already have my DVD subscription. I would like to get my friends to subscribe to show support, but there is no link to it now.
