slackware latest version

the easiest way i prefer to get a distro is by going to
www.linuxiso.org

and as you will see when you click that link, they list the most popular distros, and
a picture of the slackware logo is there, and you just click it, and you will see the first
two links are for the 9.1 iso images.

Do you mean the latest iso download of slackware?
On the main slackware page...
Click "Get Slack" on the left bar.
choose a mirror.
and choose slackware-9.1-iso
I'm sure you'll figure out the rest.
I hope thats what your were talking about.
later.

4 more posts?, did my link not work .. jeez ....

It's not a matter of your linking working or not... as you said, you "prefer" and "think" that iso linux is the easiest, but that is not the _only_ alternative... :)

the current doesnt have an iso? since im a newbie i dont even know what to download. should i download everything? i already installed 9.1 but I installed it to my laptop and it had many issues. so im hoping this current version would do the trick.

I plan to reformat the partition containing 9.1 and install the current version. I am not confident enough to do my own kernel compiling and stuff.


there's gotta be someone out there who has an iso of the current version.

To upgrade 9.1 to current use Swaret. Follow all the instructions to set it up, then edit swaret.conf to make the version=current. Then use swaret to upgrade/date your system.

Note though that the current files are not guaranteed to be fully stable - your mileage may vary, to coin a phrase.

Yup, there's no actual -current iso available, I'm afraid. You're going to have to install 9.1, then upgrade (unless you want to download the entire -current tree, and then when you're installing, mount it as an NFS partition or something. It's probably easier to go down the swaret route.
