NEWS 170312
Kernel 4.10.2-x86_64-exton is my newest Slackware kernel. The stable kernel 4.10.2 was released by Kernel.org on March 12, 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.

Getting iOS 10.x working with Slackware 14.2

The version of libimobiledevice-1.2.0 released Jan 28, 2015 and shipped with 14.2 stable is too old to support plug and play for newer iDevices. IPhones, etc will generate a mount or access error. For my work iPhone, I usually just want to dump photos and video. There are patches and workarounds - such as using iCloud. Just goes to show that in 2 years much changes in the mobile device space. There has been dead silence on requests for upstream to push a new release. For example: https://github.com/libimobiledevice/...ice/issues/456...
