I've upgraded three boxen to 13.37 RC1......smooth as silk.
Did you upgraded via slackpkg? I was compiling kernel 220.127.116.11 from source a week ago on my 13.1. Works nice, but I see fans on my notebook need more time to go sleep after high CPU usage. Now, when is out 13.37 I started thinking about it. Maybe I will copy 13.1 on second (test) partition and I will try to upgrade, because I dont want to destroy my 13.1. It was installed as minimal install with X, and some my time created from it perfect stable Slack that I dont want to destroy.
Could be that i am mistaken. Do not remember exactly where I've seen a phrase like "Slackware 8.0 codenamed "Etta" ....". Tomorrow will check if i still have a CD and look through it if will have time. Sorry for confusion if it was my mistake.
"we've decided to go with the
recently released 18.104.22.168 Linux kernel which seems to work best for X"
that's a shame as most AMD users wont now be able to use much of their shiny new kit to its potential speed etc out the box/off a liveCD etc
"The Linux 2.6.38 Kernel Is A Few Days Away
Posted by Michael Larabel on March 09, 2011
The Linux 2.6.38 is effectively ready for release. The condition of the kernel is quite good (hence the large just-published seven-way file-system benchmarks on a SSD and HDD) and Linus noted Monday that when releasing the 2.6.38-rc8 kernel that it could even be considered final, but as he's away for a few days, he went ahead to do one final pre-release.
The final Linux 2.6.38 kernel should be released in the near future with its Radeon HD 6000 series open-source support, AMD Fusion Linux support, ATI page-flipping, Nouveau Fermi acceleration, and many other open-source graphics improvements. This kernel to be used by Ubuntu 11.04 also has EXT4/Btrfs changes, pulls in a kernel patch that does wonders, and offers other kernel improvements. "
putting the beta on the servers and directly linking it in the news updates Current (pre-release) ChangeLog might be a good idea too if you want people to actually test it now.
Slackware 13.37 RC1 is functioning perfectly here.
And here as well . The only trouble is that now I have been riding the slackware -current express for a couple of months I suspect I will never be happy with the release version.... Looking forward to the 2.6.38 kernel, new xfce and all the other upcoming new goodies .
