Great. Now I can update.

Anybody has tried updating with slackpkg with this one yet? Is that safe?

I'm on 10.2 at the moment.

I'll give it a go. Maybe some config files might have changed and a few tweaks might be needed there.

Other than that, I think udev could be an issue.

My laptop was updated to -current on the weekend, and I just heard about Slack 11, so I rushed to look at the changelog... I've been running it since Sunday or something. Oh well!

My ISP hasn't updated their Slack repository, so I can't dl it at max speed (1MB/s) for my server.

Can't seem to find this info anywhere - for a full install including KDE is the 3rd install disk necessary?

Disk 3 contains KDEI (KDE and Koffice internationalizations), and the extra and testing directories.

For a full install of an english-oriented Slackware 11.0 you will only need CDs 1 and 2.

I decided (as I always have) just to nuke my Slackware 10.2 installation and install 11.0 RC5 fresh a week ago. udev rules have significantly changed in the udev versions between 10.2 and 11.0. Make sure that you have the new rules files because otherwise things WILL break in a rather spectacular fashion. Unfortunately that also means that you will have to rewrite any custom rules you made.

I just finished downloading all 3 CD ISO. DVD is no good for me because only my laptop has DVD and my servers have CD only. I can't beleive it finally out. My 10.2 laptop install has been pretty good but it's in need for an update. I'll install fresh on my laptop then update my servers soon.

To all of you that have posted links - go to Download Linux (an LQ page) and submit the links there. That way, we can publicise them.
