What are you talking about? Current ships with LILO. If you have newer hardware then run Slackware64-current.

Code:
bash-5.0$ uname -rpm
4.19.20 x86_64 Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz

Then I don't know how I fucked it up! probably I just forgot to run lilo after the install.

Meh, in any case after having everything working in 14.2, switching to current is quite simple

Yup. If you didn't run LILO after the upgrade or failed to install LILO during the install it would fail on boot-up.

Upgrading from 14.2 works. You could also download a Slackware64-current ISO and install it. Have fun, mate!

It will be the best Slackware ever! So much has happened in the last development cycle. There could literally be a freeze at pretty much any time IMO (although the new versions of glibc should probably cook for a bit longer) except for one big elephant in the room:

KDE5!

I don't generally worry about when a release happens; I do know, however, that when it occurs, I will already be running it on my system, as it is essentially -current made official.

Also PAM, Kerberos, and a replacement for the Slackware store.

I worry about when a release is EOL'd.

(in itself, it is a testament to Slackware stability and all the great if less glamorous maintenance work)

Yeah, me too. Slackware 13.37 and lower versions have reached EOL. The Slackware 14 versions are all still supported. I think that is amazing considering that 14.0 was released in 2012. Slackware has a stellar track record of supporting older releases.

I can't help but laugh and smile at how many Slackware 15 threads we have now. We have so many I immediately think of this every time I see a new "when will 15 come" post.

"X doesn't compile properly in 15.0."

"I'm sure it'll be fixed in 15.1."
