Looks like we get a Slackware 14.1 release candidate 2... but things are
pretty much nailed down at this point. Please test and report any last
minute issues!

I don't know if that's the same ones as AlienBob linked to for RC1, but I noticed on those that CHECKSUMS.md5 in the root directory threw a bunch of errors because it included the source/ directory (which I understood) and some in extra/ (which surprised me). I assume this will be cleared up when the official DVDs are released. I usually check those MD5s just to make sure everything burned right.

Thanks TobiSGD,

I happily use Alien Bob's mirror-slackware-current.sh build script at his site. Eric's script builds CDs or a DVD of slackware-current.

I use AlienBob's script to generate those images, so I would be surprised if they aren't the same as the ones he offers. Funnily, I can't find where to get AlienBob's ISOs, so that I can compare the MD5s.

@TobiSGD,
This is the link I use: http://taper.alienbase.nl/mirrors/slackware/

Edit: I'm too slow.

TobiSGD 10-21-2013 03:55 PM

Thanks. I got different MD5s as before when recreating the images (and they now stay consistent, so it seems there was a problem on my side), but they still do not match yours. May it be possible that your images don't have the RC2 changes already integrated?

Alien Bob 10-21-2013 04:24 PM

And who says that you and I are using the same options to the script...?

I get a new checksum every time the ISO is rebuilt.

Am I to presume,then, that the release will be pretty much RC2, with only minor changes (if any)?

The reason I ask is because I downloaded the ISO image today, and installed it on my HP laptop. It runs beautifully (as I have come to expect as standard on Slackware). I would like to know if there will be any major changes, such as the ones in between RC1 and RC2?

Everything looks good here, running on 2 different machines.

Hi,

Please upgrade usb_modeswitch if possible. It's still at version 1.2.4, while some new modems requires latest 2.0.1.

Thanks

Cool. I look forward to 14.1's imminent release.
