Slackware 8.1 RC-3
 
From the changelog:

Mon Jun 10 15:39:55 PDT 2002
Slackware 8.1rc3 is released for testing... it won't be long now.
a/devs-2.3.1-i386-9.tgz: Added more IDE devices, and patched MAKEDEV to do
the same. Suggested by Greg Roelofs.
a/shadow-4.0.3-i386-3.tgz: Patched adduser to reject uppercase in usernames
so that you don't have to wait for useradd to reject it at the very end.
Thanks to Stuart Winter and "xcp".
a/sysvinit-2.84-i386-17.tgz: Edited rc.M to prevent a bogus error message
when using a UMSDOS root partition.

Yeah I'm hopping up and down on one foot.

Cheers,

Finegan

Something like 50/50 now on patches vs. updates. Remember though, Patrick doesn't release on a schedule, so he may find a pile of things that piss him off and push this back to July. Also, this is still basically one man vs. monsters like RedHat, Mandrake and *ominous drum roll* United Linux, so after you download the ISOs, burn 'em, and have your 8.1 box up and running, do what I do, and buy the boxed set anyway.

Solidarity,

Thats why i always get the boxed set from Patrick, yeah it costs some $15 but i'm glad to give money (it's my sisters anyway :D) for a good cause.
