Slackware 14.2 released

Yep Slackware 14.2 has been released today, July 1st of 2016. Don’t fall off your chairs. More than two and a half years have passed since the previous stable release 14.1 but the long wait was definitely worth it.

You will certainly have noticed that I am still using the words “current” […]

Ten years of SlackBuilds.org

 This week marks the tenth anniversary of SlackBuilds.org. Many of us will remember the time when a true Slacker did not bother herself with build scripts. The “configure && make && make install” mantra was at the forefront of everyone’s mind when it came to installing new software. Slackware made this possible. Unlike the other […]
