Slackware 10 RC2 released; Slackware 10 imminent...


According to the changelogs RC2 has been released, here's hoping Slackware 10 final is coming soon...

Steve

P.S. This is more of a headsup for people who haven't been following the changelogs more than anything :)

Edit: What does this mean?
Quote:
ChangeLog.txt
gnome/galeon-1.3.15-i486-2.tgz: Patched and recompiled for Mozilla 1.7.
Thanks very much to Philip Langdale for the patch (which made it possible
to squeeze Mozilla 1.7 into this Slackware release at the last minute).
Why does galeon have to be recompiled? Does it share Mozilla's "kernel"?

Galeon uses Mozilla's rendering engine Gecko.

According to Theresa at the Slackware store, Slackware 10 should be RTM tomorrow, and should begin shipping in about a week and a half.

Sweet, but that's for subscribers only? What about us freeloaders (I WILL buy Slackware 10 as soon as my pay packet comes through) - will we be able to download tommorow as well? :)

Can't you just use Swaret and upgrade your current install?

I promised a mate I'd install slackware on his machine; he only has 56k so it'd be a pain to install 9.1 and then update to current on 56k...

I'd much rather be able to download a 10 ISO and just install that

Well you might do...

swaret --upgrade -a

Otherwise you are going to be typing 'Y' after every package.
