Exclamation Slackware 9.1 Released !


Heh, finally it's here. I think this release will be great! Downloading the 2 CDs right now. I must be not the only geek downloading it since the speeds both from the ftp server and the bittorrent link are VERY slow

5% and counting.
I'm very glad the bittorrent was put up. I can't even get onto the ftp server right now, let alone download from it.

I started slow too. But it actually only took me about 2 hours to get the first iso using bittorrent.

Best way to update would probably be to use Swaret.

I bought slack-9.0 from the 'slack-store' and have always kept current as the change-logs came out. In my /etc/slackware-version, it says "9.1", so I guess I already have it installed/tuned up (grin).

This is the fastest, cleanest linux or any OS I've ever used--by far!

Thanks to the slack-team, BC

Wow, these Bittorrent links are running slow! I'm about 4% on the first iso, and it's predicting I'll be done sometime next week (6kb/s). Maybe at this rate, the CDs in the mail are faster than the download I wonder when my subscription will show up...

Stick with the bittorrent. THe speeds increase as you have more to upload.

I was up to 150 Kb/sec at one point.

As a part-time Slacker, I canceled my subscription. I will restart when 2.6 Kernel is the default.
I guess I must be "geeked-out" when I know which kernel or application upgrades would interest me in a version upgrade.
I really don't care about matching every upgrade unless it is for security.

Which ISO files do I need to download? All of them, or just the first one? I am currently running Slackware 9.0 and I want to upgrade and keep all my current settings.

Don't need the source. The first two links should do you just fine.
