Visualizza versione completa : Slackware 8.0

03-07-2001, 02.01.49
per i Linuxiani duri e puri :D:D:D

Slackware 8.0 a major Linux distribution has been released today. In my personal opinion Slackware still remains the best distribution with all the RedHat/Mandrake ones being too bloated, insecure and generally, how do they say -- lame -)

This is a major upgrade, affecting almost all the packages in the distribution. Updates include XFree86 4.1.0, Linux kernels 2.2.19 and 2.4.5, KDE 2.1.2, GNOME 1.4, glibc 2.2.3, and all the usual utilities. Additions include ProFTPD, OpenSSH and OpenSSL, mod_ssl and mod_php, full support for the 2.4 kernel series, and many more.
All users are encouraged to upgrade. Slackware Linux 8.0 is available from the main FTP site as well as our mirror sites conveniently located around the world.
