Guess I must have been kinda busy lately, how could I miss this?
Slackware 12 was released on July 2, and it looks awesome.
* kernel 126.96.36.199 (first default 2.6 kernel in distro history)
* gcc 4.1.2 (first gcc4 in distro history)
Normally, Slackware stays kinda behind the curve, delivering trusted but somewhat dated packages. Looks like this is changing:
* kde 3.5.7
* apache 2.2.4
* php 5.2.3
DVD images are available, but it would take years to download such a beast, so I'm going the cd route. With source, that's 6 discs. Well, you really only need the first 2 to get the installation going.
I'm going to be taking install and configure notes, in case anybody is interested.
