Hey everyone got some slackware news. Slackware 10 has finally been released as of 6/26/04 Ive downloaded it and installed it on my laptop. Ony thing is tho i cant figure out how you are supposed to get the 2.6 kernel and the instead of the XFREE86 window system. Well anyway post here if you have any comments.
There is no greater futility then running windows ME.

Xorg is the default X windows system in Slack 10, not XFree86............At least it was witht the ISOs I downloaded..............I did a virgin install of Slack 10 on a separate partition and Xorg was installed................

As for the 2.6 kernel, Slack still uses the 2.4 kernel by default as it being more stable and doesn't break a lot of things like the 2.6 kernel does...........However, in the Slackware-10.0 directory in the mirror sites, look in testing/packages/linux-2.6.7 for the kernel-2.6.7 sure to read "README.initrd" and "kernel-headers.WARNING" before using......... :)
How long a minute is depends on which side of the bathroom door you're on.

I updated my machine with swaret and had to get Xorg manually, swaret didn't update Xfree86 to Xorg automatically.

Here's a how-to to update to kernel 2.6.7 as Distrowatch:
