Fresh 14.0 RC2 ISO?


Hi,

Usually I only go with stable releases for work, but I'd like to test something out with 14.0RC2. I'm not very familiar with --current. I know there are some places where I can find some ISOS with all the recent stuff.

Is there any particular place/link you can recommend?

You can have a look at
http://ftp.heanet.ie/mirrors/ftp.sla...g_2012-DVD.iso
or http://ftp.df.lth.se/pub/slackware/s...g_2012-DVD.iso . You would have to update those, or build the iso yourself with the packages in -current.

Not fast enough... And thanks zerouno for notifying me that the isos were rebuilt yesterday

One other question concerning --current. Say I use the RC2 ISO to install 14.0. I use a current mirror to upgrade everything. Now can I "stabilize" this the day 14.0 becomes stable, by simply replacing the current repo in /etc/slackpkg/mirror by 14.0 stable?

Yes.
At release-day -current and -stable are the same version.
The day after they differs.

From -current and -13.37 changelogs:
