Wait another 7h for 11.0 or just install 10.2


I decided to install slackware again and right now I'm downloading the 11.0 DVD iso, but it has 7h left of downloading. Should I wait for it to finish or should cancel and install the 10.2 version with my already burned cds? I mean, is it a HUGE difference or just small details that I will never notice?

There were a lot of pretty major changes, I would wait on 11.

You could have only downloaded CD1.... it suffices to install a box... without KDE.

I don't have any regular cd's, only dvd's. Ah, I I'll wait then, btw 8h left. I could read the slackware book meanwhile :% <-- The mouth is screwed by two fingers, just made that up

I see you have "Gentoo" at distribution.. so waiting shouldn't be a problem for you :-)

Hehe, good one. I'm a minimalist, little shit as possible, liked the idead with the USE flag, but the compilation time is killing me sometimes
