Slackware 11.0
 
Has anyone heard when Slackware 11.0 will be release?

juanbobo 06-05-2005 08:21 PM

I don't know if anyone knows, but the releases come out every 6-8 months I think and the last (10.1) came out in February. I would imagine it will be out before the summer is over.

If you make an iso out of the most recent /current (I think it was updated around the end of May), when installing it says slackware 11.0

I guess that means soon, then.

But in all honesty, noone knows but Pat himself. He'll freeze current and call it 11.0 when he thinks it's ready.

Not necessarily, in the past the version number has been bumped pretty early too.

Yep. He once said that 11.0 is likely to have kernel 2.6 as a part of the default install, so we will probably see some big changes and time to test them.

Honestly I'm not holding my breath; Pat's pretty sick and I'm not convinced that even he knows when it'll come out.

And, hell, it's not like he has to hurry. Even if we have to wait until next summer, it'll still be a faster release cycle than Debian. :)

If/when Pat dies(which I hope isnt soon), whats gonna happen to slack? Is it gonna die out? 1 person take over or unleash it to the the people? an I really hope 2.6 is the default for 11 (its not for the /current 11 beta)

I wish he (Pat V.) would put gnome back in Slackware 11 or current. I had no luck after he drop gnome and with any of the other's version.

juanbobo 06-07-2005 12:12 AM

What is the minimum needed to run Gnome (not just GTK) progs?

xushi 06-07-2005 03:31 AM

Although bird603568 didn't put the question in a good way at all, but i also would like to know,

If Pat 'retires', or stops work on slackware for helth reasons or other. What would be the future of Slack ?

Coz i don't see myself switching to any other distro.. Its either Slack or streight to Solaris/Mac for me =)

gbonvehi 06-07-2005 03:42 AM

He stated when he was ill in a mail he wrote, that he already made arrangements with some Slackware people that have helped him to continue with it if something wrongs happens (Hope not).

bird603568 06-07-2005 08:26 AM

Sorry some times im bad with words. I guess thats why i dont have a girlfriend now.

davidsrsb 06-07-2005 10:26 AM

The beauty of open source, Pat only really controls the Slackware name as the software is almost clean of the proprietary installers that Suse and the rpm distros love. So if necessary there is nothing to stop a fork.

davidsrsb 06-07-2005 10:30 AM

Notice Pats comments about alsa 1.09a in the changelog. Sticking with 2.4.x kernel is going to become awkward towards the end of this year as more and more package developers (using other distros) start to assume the use of the 2.6 kernel.
