SlackEX (Slackware) live with Enlightenment 0.24.2 (latest version), kernel 5.9.6-exton and Refracta Snapshot (create your own Slackware distro) :: Build 201112

NEWS ABOUT SlackEX Build 201112 with the Enlightenment 0.24.2 Desktop
A new extra version of SlackEX is ready. In this version I’ve replaced Xfce4 with Enlightenment 0.24.2 – latest version. I’ve also replaced kernel 5.9.1-exton with kernel is 5.9.6-exton. This version of SlackEX is unique. You can’t find another Linux system with the latest Enlightenment version. When installing version 0.24.2 I followed the instructions here. The whole thing was very time consuming since a lot of dependencies had to be satisfied. All other packages from SlackEX Build 201105 remain. Most important Refracta Snapshot so you can build your own Slackware distro with Enlightenment 0.24.2. Study the full package LIST. Read about Enlightenment 0.24.2 features.

    Article 201114 about SlackEX Build 201112 at by Marius Nestor (previously at

    "SlackEX Linux developer Arne Exton informs 9to5Linux about the general availability of a new version of his Slackware-based that ships with the latest Enlightenment desktop environment by default. Based on Slackware 14.2, the new SlackEX Linux release drops the lightweight Xfce desktop environment for the even more lighter and beautiful Enlightenment desktop environment/window manager. In fact, SlackEX appears to be the only live system that uses the latest Enlightenment release, version 0.24.2.

    But that’s not all that’s new in the latest SlackEX Linux release, which is now powered by the Linux 5.9 kernel series. This not only means better hardware support, but it also means you won’t find another Slackware-based live system running Linux kernel 5.9."
