I would definitely recommend you buy the CDs from the slackware store and support the project, but if you're short on cash and have dial up you can get cheap CDs from the websites in this post:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...027#post985027

EDIT: Probably none of the websites have the CDs yet, but it will only be a matter of time.

Highlights of the 10.0 release include GCC 3.3.4 (with GCC 3.4.0 as an alternate in /testing), the Linux 2.4.26 kernel (with Linux 2.6.7 as an alternate choice in /testing)
Does this you get the choice of using the 2.6.7 kernel when installing slackware 10?

I don't think you do, but there are full instructions for upgrading :)

Anyone know where the md5sums for the Slackware 10.0 ISOs are posted? I can't find them on the Slackware website.

Thanks. One more question, I downloaded the first two ISOs from BitTorrent. I notice that it also downloaded the md5 files (slackware-10.0-install-d1.iso.md5) and the .asc files (slackware-10.0-install-d1.iso.asc) for each ISO.

How do I use the .asc file? I know it has something to do with GPG and checking the authenticity of the md5 and ISO files against the file creator's private GPG key, or something like that. But what is the syntax to do that?

Anybody knows a good slack 10 mirror other than those in slackware site? They're always full . I can only download the iso from our school since im on dial up. My school unfortunately blocks torrents.

I cant wait

i was wondering about the install, since we have to option to select 2.4.26 or 2.6.7 and we can also select between gcc 3.3.4 or 3.4.0, should i choose the latest and greatest even though they are under "/testing"? also, if i do decide to go with those, i would i select those during the the install?

Guys instead of clogging up the ftp mirrors, why not use a bit torrent client, I have been using azureus, its pretty fast and better than waiting for a slow d/l to finish, Oh the agony! hehe

http://azureus.sourceforge.net/

all you need is java installed, by the way the info on slackware says " with Linux 2.6.7 as an alternate choice in /testing" does this mean I can install that during installation instead of the default kernel?

Cheers

Yes, I looked and they only accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
