Build 140411 of SlackEX 14.1 with kernel 3.14

Posted 04-11-2014 at 01:39 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)

Why replace version 140326 with version 140411?
To my horror I discovered that some programs (including K3b and MPlayer) could not be started due to various unfulfilled program dependencies. The problems are now fixed in version 140411. Additionally could version 4.8.6 of Gimp not open jpg files. To deal with the problem, I had to install version 4.8.10 (latest stable version) of Gimp from source.

As I still had to fix various software problems I took the opportunity to replace...

Run your Slackware 64 bit system with the latest kernel – 3.14!

Posted 04-08-2014 at 11:50 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware 12.0 – 14.1 and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk, SlackEX and Exton|Defender. The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 3.14-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 3.14 is the latest stable kernel available from Kernel.org. Released (20140331).

Posted 03-26-2014 at 02:35 PM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 03-27-2014 at 02:15 AM by exton

New features in version 140326 of SlackEX
SlackEX build 140326 comes as a ZIP-file for direct installation to an USB stick. I have replaced kernel 3.12.6-x86_64-exton with kernel 3.13.7-x86_64-exton with support for “everything”. All packages are upgraded to the latest version by now (140326). Study the full package LIST.

Install SlackEX to hard drive
Use this INSTRUCTION . You can (if you want) use Grub2 (new GRUB) as boot loader. (Slackware original still uses LILO)....
