Description: "It's true! Slackware 13.37 has been released. Nearly a year in the making, you will appreciate the performance and stability that can only come with careful and rigorous testing. Slackware 13.37 uses the 2.6.37.6 Linux kernel and also ships with 2.6.38.4 kernels for those who want to run the latest. The long-awaited Firefox 4.0 web browser is included, the X Window System has been upgraded (and includes the open source nouveau driver for NVIDIA cards). The venerable Slackware installer has been improved as well, with support for installing to btrfs, a one-package-per-line display mode option, and an easy to set-up PXE install server that runs right off the DVD!"
Keywords: kernel-2.6.37.6 Firefox-4.0 btrfs-support

Pros: Great for learning linux/your own computer

Afaik the purest linux/gnu distro. the emphasis here is on 'distro' as the only real solution for anyone who wants to take full control is linux from scratch.

Pros: Very fast
Cons: complicated


I've been using Slackware since it first came out.

I've been away for a long time and my memory is not as good as it once was. I need help in making preparations to compile the kernel. Can anyone suggest a site where how to properly prepare for compiling is discussed? Compiling is straight forward. What to compile and gather the information is the trick. I could use some direction.

Thanks in advance.
moonstroller.
