Run latest Slackware 64 bit (15.0 STABLE) live and create your own live installable Slackware 15.0 system with Refracta Snapshot!

About SlackEX 15.0 64 bit Build 220518 (Xfce4), Build 220117 (Enlightenment/Xfce4) and Build 220110 (LXQt)

Slackware is the first widely-used Linux system, which is still developing. Slackware has existed since 1993. In comparison with for example Ubuntu and Linux Mint, many people believe that Slackware is “difficult”. Any novice can quickly learn to use Ubuntu they say. My remaster of Slackware Current (15.0), which I call SlackEX 15.0 Current 64 bit Linux Live DVD, is however just as easy to use as Ubuntu and/or Linux Mint. Some tend to complain that the Program Management in Slackware is awkward. That was perhaps earlier the case, but not anymore.

NEWS ABOUT SlackEX BUILD 220518 with the Xfce4 DESKTOP
A new version of SlackEX is ready. It is based on Slackware 15.0 STABLE released 220202 with Xfce4 as DE. The most important package installed is Refracta Snapshot. With that you can build your own Slackware 15.0 distribution. Xfce4 is one of Slackware’s official Desktop environments. The other one is KDE. Kernel 5.17.7-amd64-exton is used in this SlackEX Build. To be able to use Refracta Snapshot you’ll have to use said kernel. Otherwise you can (of course) replace “my” kernel with Slackware’s original kernel. Study the full package LIST.

Update/Upgrade from RC2 or RC3
As regards my other two SlackEX Builds you can easily upgrade the systems to Slackware 15.0 stable. Just run the command sudo slackpkg update followed by sudo slackpkg upgrade-all.
