Run your Slackware system with the latest available kernel – 4.13.2!

Posted 09-14-2017 at 10:02 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

NEWS 170914
Kernel 4.13.2-x86_64-exton is my newest Slackware kernel. Kernel 4.13.2 was released by Kernel.org yesterday. (September 13, 2017).

I have compiled a very useful (as I think) 64 bit kernel for Slackware Current (14.2) and/or all Slackware derivatives. For example Slax, Zenwalk and SlackEX.

linuxgalaxy.org down for cleaning and upgrades.

Posted 09-04-2017 at 02:56 PM by kingbeowulf

My hobby server is down while I fix up the ol' gal. The boot HD was an antique 40GB IDE Seagate that has started to flutter a bit. 15+yrs continuous use. Not bad. I'll move data to a new 1GB WD SATA drive and move on up to Slackware-14.2 "real soon now." I might even get done by the time current hits RC1 ! At this point I am not sure if I'll finally toss this old 2000 vintage HP Compaq d530 CMT (P4 2.66Ghz, 2GB). I had neglected cleaning it for a bit, and the case had quite a few cobwebs...

Hello to the multitude of great Slackers on LQ.

I have a 2008 XP 2GB netbook, plus now a 2009 Win7 4GB 64bit (non-UEFI luckily).
N.B.: not yet 'ready' to do a (dual-boot) hdd install
So, I run in VBox, or boot live USB which I use Yumi to create.

Yumi doesn't have an option for (any) slack
I tried the syslinux and grub options, but slackware failed to boot
