slackware 13.x
 
When's it come out?

GazL 02-20-2010 08:53 AM

You've been here long enough now to know the answer to that one without asking....

WHEN IT'S READY!

icecubeflower 02-20-2010 09:27 AM

Is it ready yet?

zordrak 02-20-2010 11:12 AM

No.

lumak 02-20-2010 11:14 AM

No. It is not ready... BUT reading the changelog,


Is not having an update to -current since "Sun Jan 31 19:28:54 UTC 2010" ready enough for you?

additionally
Sun Jan 24 20:22:46 UTC 2010
a/aaa_elflibs-13.013-x86_64-1.txz: Rebuilt.

aaa_elflibs is not updated until the libs included are finalized (or close enough pending any last minute bug fix)


The kernel update is only 20 days old. But they did update usb-and-pxe-installers/usbboot.img

The tool chain was also moved from "testing" and updated once.

So it might not be far off...patience...patience. Slackware isn't tied to a strict schedule like some other distros. Thank BOB!

I've been sitting here watching the changelog and waiting for the .8 kernel for a while now, normally Pat updates the kernel the day after I do a manual build making my effort a waste of time, so this time I sit here waiting, and he doesn't update it. I'm sure he's hacked my system to watch me and only ever does a kernel update the day after I build my own, just to spite me. ;)

Just a wild guess, but maybe Slackware 13.1 will only come out after KDE 4.4 is ready enough.
The packages are available from alienBOB, and most people seem to like it.

I abandoned KDE since 4.0, but I *might* try it again when it reaches Slackware-stable.

This is only *my* wild speculation...

Actually that is aaa_base which you'd have to watch. The aaa_elflibs only needed a new library added.

How about now?

Maybe they wait for KDevelop 4.0 on May 1st?

Patience, my friend. Please have patience. :) Slackware is legendary for its stability. Pat will release 13.1 when it is ready.

I've been using slack since 7.1 and the general time line is 6-months to a year between releases.

You could always download a -current iso and install that, It will get you close to slack 13.x

My bet is that we will get a new KDE + polkit compiled with a shadow backend. Robby Workman wrote a patch for polkit that allows it to be used without PAM, probably he did that for the next Slackware release.

animeresistance 03-30-2010 06:05 PM

Patience is the key. Slackware releases usually take long time to appear, but it is the best. Unlike the other distros that have bugs ...

Remember "The flower that blossoms first is not the best".
