Anyone tried the SLAX 6 preview?


The reason I ask is that I downloaded the .iso and it wouldn't boot. Just wondering if it's a problem at my end, or there is something wrong with the .iso.

yea, i tried it, it booted just fine for me.
try re-downloading the .iso, and re-burning it.
you might have a corrupt file.

Before you burn the image, I recommend you do a md5sum check on the iso to see if it is corrupted or not. This is optional of course.

First issue of Slax 6 boots just fine. It does have a few bugs. One of them is dd doesn't work.

Haha, it's a good job I haven't learnt dd yet then.
Thanks everyone, I have it booting now, must've been corrupt.
