Slackware-Current (Feb 9) with HTTP/FTP installer, and SSHD.
I won't say much, just read:


isolinux/initrd.img: Massive overhaul, primarily the work and initiative of
Eric Hameleers. Work above and beyond the call of duty. If we gave out
medals of honor, this would deserve one. :-)
The installer now supports network installs from not just NFS, but also
. Please be nice to our mirrors -- this feature is _intended_
for use within private networks from your own "site".
Work is also underway to fully support unattended/remote installs. The
installer has both a small ssh and sshd (dropbear).
Thanks again Eric!
This is something that's been on the drawing board for many years.
Thanks a lot Eric! This is something which's been in the wishes of many users for many years!

I will be giving it a try later today or maybe tomorrow!

Damn, the network-less installer was probably my single greatest problem with Slackware. This ranks up there with the switch to 2.6 in terms of momentous changes. I guess this explains why -current has been quiet as of late.

I feel like I want to do a fresh install of -current on something just to play with the new options. Maybe in a VM.
