i was going to stop by the slackware site to find out how to do a NFS installation when i realized that the site is (*POOF*) gone! Sorry for the overly dramatized post. anyhow does anyone know what is happening? (site mantinence, fire, flood, earthquake, tsunami). okay bye.
According to some of the people in aols Slackware is currently undergoing a DoS attack and they are not sure when it will be back up. If all you want to do is download packages somebody on aols said that ftp connections are working, but not the http.
Why DoS a good site? Why not DoS microsoft.com. I think DoS is the lamest activity. Most likely a kiddie with someone else's bots. I want to know if Slackware 9 is due to come out soon. Anyone have some information on that?
An update on http://slackware.com:
As many of you have noticed, the slackware.com website is not online.
We offer our apologies, but we've been the target of DoS attacks for a few
days. We're investigating the problem, but can't give an estimate of when
the site will return. If anyone has any additional information that might
be helpful to us in tracking down the source of these attacks, please email
us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your patience.
If you want a Slackware-current CD simply download the isolinux, kernels, and slackware directory from the slackware-current tree and follow the directions in the isolinux readme file. It tells you have to create a bootable install CD, setup command and all.
