For your Slackware-current: KDE 5_17.03 with lots of goodies

Those of you who follow my repository RSS feeds have already noticed, but many people rely on the announcements I make on this blog (plus, I can give a lot more detail here). I uploaded the packages for the March 2017 release of my ‘ktown’ repository: KDE 5_17.03. Actually, there is a lot of interesting stuff going on in this […]

Last week’s package harvest and more

Last week I made my build server at home churn through a lot of packages, let me summarize what became available recently in my slackbuilds repository: I added ‘NetworkManager-openvpn‘ which is a plugin for NM adding support for OpenVPN connections.

Soon, I will compile this version of Plasma 5 on Slackware 14.2 (only 64bit) as well, but I gave priority last few days to the new LibreOffice packages […]

liveslak 1.1.6 released

It has been a while since I released the last ‘liveslak‘. Usually these releases seem to co-incide with Plasma5 releases in my ‘ktown’ repository. Today is no different, and liveslak 1.1.6 has been released to produce a new set of Live ISO images. You will find the usual versions of Slackware Live Edition based on liveslak 1.1.6 and using Slackware-current […]
