Talking Slackware Release Candidate x86_64 Architecture Changelog


Wed Jul 1 16:04:35 CDT 2009
Hi folks -- the TODO isn't entirely empty here, but it's pretty much down
to minor nits, and so we're going to call this release candidate #1 and
(mostly) freeze further updates unless they happen to fix problems.
Regarding the kernel, 2.6.29.x has been well tested with this userspace
and seems like the best choice to ship for production use. Perhaps we
can put something else (at least source and configs) in /testing, though.


Rest of it here:

Cool!!

Already used Eric's magic rsync script to create a fresh DVD ISO, burning it now and about to install it on another box.

Now you need to post a Slackware monitor superkaramba thing for Slackware for x86_64.
The old one doesn't work on it.

not necessarily, like the changelog said the TODO is not entirely empty. There is a still a good chance it will make it in. If not its a pretty simple self upgrade.
