Thank you:-) That puts that to rest. I'm sure Pat will release RC2 for 12.1 in short order.

I often find it useful to read at least as far as the second paragraph.

from TFA:

Recently, Patrick Volkerding has revealed the change log for the so-called RC2 version of Slackware 12.0. This second release client is said to come along with some more bug-fixes and upgrades, rather than with new features or other additions.

An article about 12.0.rc2 is quite old news I think. But then again, I have done similar mistakes. Happens to everybody.


Oops, so you was already aware...

I have a feeling windows vista is going to have the same fate as windows me. Which is probably for the best.

You can use 'Alien_Bob's-script -mirror-slackware-current.sh' to download and update. You can setup for cd/dvd iso. You will have to edit to your environment. The script is well commented.

This link and others are available from 'Slackware-Links' .
