It's a valid opinion, but still for me is tomorrow

Patience...patience. I'm in no hurry, in fact I'm going to wait for my "official" DVD and install from that.

Hi,

Still some tweaking going on for '-current'. Check the changelog, even a security fix. So there's still some checking & testing to be done.

Hi folks,
One more. We'll call this 13.37 RC 4.6692. Thanks to Nicola for suggesting
the first Feigenbaum constant could be useful since we used pi, and it's too
late for e. This is pretty much it, but last call for any showstoppers.
PV's statement Friday shows it could be any time unless there's a showstopper. I like his numbers game for RC.

At this point it might as well be stretched out for another 6 weeks so it will be exactly one year since
the release of 13.1.

Then it might include the 2.6.38.2(+) kernel, KDE 4.6.2(or 3) and Xfce 4.8x and skip to the
14 version number.

As the old saying goes...

Patience is a virtue...



And as my first wife often added...

..and virtue is a grace
and Grace is a naughty girl with mud on her face.

Have a question. I don't know who is authorised to answer it better, Mr.Volkerding or Mr.Hameleers or maybe smb else. It touches Hameleers's network configuration script included in Slackware(rc.inet1 rc.inet1.conf): is there plans to update them soon to support easy configuration of ipv6 as it easy for ipv4 now?

Take care,
Very confusing blog post. I don't get it: Lots o work, and what do you get out of this? A penguin with 1337 on it's tummy? really? Is that it? Or did I miss out on anything? if so,. I wonder if it's leet of 'obso'leet' since runnig leet whould make it leet squarred (or even by a higher level, when running a multicore system).

PS: the modded penguin is ofcourse very nice, but I just wonder if it's worth the effort of rebuilding the kernel for. If your rebuilding anyways,. whole different story.

PS2: Or are you trying to get Pat to include the mod anyways?

PS3: The sl1337.bmp isn't used by lilo by default.. will this change with 'final'? I think, if the official revision number will be 13.37 instead of 13.2, the least it should have it this sl1337.bmp as a bootscreen, or at a bare minimum, have it copied to /boot as an option. Hiding it in source/a/lilo would make it an easter-egg .... hmmm. what's next week?

It's not really hidden, look at /usr/doc/lilo-22.8/sample/
