what's good about slack10? i got slack8


hello

it's been a while i used linux..
been playing games on windows >.<


god knows what slack version i have in my comp..
i think it's 8 with 2.4.20 kernel


what are the main improvements from slack8?
and is it worth upgrading?

only thing i changed after cameback from window, is browser(galeon->firefox) & gaim

is new kde/gnome prettier? heh

i'd like to see a new X recognizes mouse thumb buttons wo help of im-wheel..
i don't use imwheel for browsing because im-hweel messes up konsole scrolling somehow... edit:btw found mouse gesture extension in firefox.. works pretty kewl.

Welcome back from "the darkside"

You can see the changes on the Slackware homepage.

To determine your version of Slack issue
mingdao@james:~$ cat /etc/slackware-version

and to determine you're current kernel issue
mingdao@james:~$ uname -r
2.6.7

Thanks! Jesus is with me - He defeated the force at Calvary!

Glad you're "back in Slack!"
