ok, downloading the disk images as I write.
I prefer the fun of installing it myself, but if it doesn't work out, I'll try the virtualbox image.

Another version added to my collection.

Thanks!

Oh yeah. That's a more likely source for it. I'd forgotten that.

No problem

I managed to install it using the floppy disk images, so it's definitely installable. It's not a complete set, as you'll see, but you get a bootable computer afterwards. I posted some screenshots in another thread somewhere...

here it is:

I wonder how long it will take for Debian to reach 13? Will I live to see it?

It takes aproximately 2 years for the debian folks to reach another mayor release. Given that the Maya calendar ends in 2012, we'll be lucky if we ever see debian 7.0!

I thought it could be released on October 31rst. November 13th just seems too far off.

I still like my idea, releasing Slackware with the Bob Dobbs head on the disc, a dual layered DVD, layer1, the Subgenius movie Arise, and layer2 the Slackware distro, a special edition 32 and 64-bit that includes Arise! on Apr 13, 2010, or Oct 31 2009 or 2010 is fine too.

I managed to install the 1.01 release in Qemu.
As the installation script suggests, I used the 'X' disks from SLS (I have SLS-1.03 here) and it worked - after some head-banging

The XFree86 1.3 server doesn't recognize the Cirrus VGA chipset that Qemu emulates, so I had to fall back to the Mono driver. But still, I can play Spider in Slackware 1.01 now

Check the attached screendump!

<edit>
Forgot to mention a funny thing I found out...
The hostname is indeed "darkstar" and is set in /etc/rc.local.
But the /etc/HOSTNAME file contains the name "metallica"
Ah, and this release also contains the (in)famous gonzo / satan / snake users

What fun I missed in Slackwareland lately. I'm buying a round of beers if Patrick decides to skip 13.0 and roll out 12.3...(Yeah, I know that you can pre-order 13.0). But the boss could still change his mind.
