Stable 1.0.0 release of liveslak

Yesterday on the final day of my short holiday (of sorts) I prepped and released version 1.0.0 of my “liveslak” project.

Check out my previous articles about Slackware Live Edition for more background information and read the README.txt file provided with the “liveslak” sources to get […]
