A new version of SlackEX is ready


Slackware is the first widely-used Linux system, which is still developing. Slackware has existed since 1993. In comparison with for example Ubuntu and Linux Mint, many people believe that Slackware is “difficult”. Any novice can quickly learn to use Ubuntu they say. My remaster of Slackware 13.37, which I call SlackEX 13.37 Xfce4/Razor-qt Live DVD, is however just as easy to use as Ubuntu and/or Linux Mint. Some tend to complain that the Program Management in Slackware is awkward. That was perhaps earlier the case, but not anymore. Now we have the Application Managers Slackpkg, Sbopkg and Gslapt – a GTK version of slapt-get. They are a piece of cake to use! Slackpkg and Gslapt are preinstalled in SlackEX 13.37. Users of Synaptic will feel at ease with Gslapt.

New features in version 120510 of SlackEX (compared with the previous version from 120408)
I have replaced kernel 3.3.1-exton with kernel 3.3.5-exton with support for “everything”. Kernel 3.3.5 is the latest available kernel on kernel.org. I have also upgraded Xfce from version 4.8 to 4.10 (released 120428). Almost all other component software is also upgraded to the latest version by now (2012-05-10 – LIST).
