Slackware 13.0
Slackware 13.0 brings many updates and enhancements, among which you'll find twoof the most advanced desktop environments available today: Xfce 4.6.1, a fast andlightweight but visually appealing and easy to use desktop environment, and KDE4.2.4, a recent stable release of the new 4.2.x series of the award-winning K DesktopEnvironment.We continue to make use of HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer) which allows thesystem administrator to grant use of various hardware devices according to users'group membership so that they will be able to use items such as USB flash sticks,USB cameras that appear like USB storage, portable hard drives, CD and DVDmedia, MP3 players, and more, all without requiring sudo, the mount or umountcommand. Just plug and play.Properly set up, Slackware's desktop should be suitable for any level of Linuxexperience.Slackware uses the kernel bringing you advanced performance features suchas journaling filesystems, SCSI and ATA RAID volume support, SATA support,Software RAID, LVM (the Logical Volume Manager), and encrypted filesystems.Kernel support for X DRI (the Direct Rendering Interface) brings high-speedhardware accelerated 3D graphics to Linux.There are two kinds of kernels in Slackware -- the huge kernels, which containsupport for just about every driver in the Linux kernel. These are primarily intended to be used for installation, but there's no real reasonthat you couldn't continue to runthem after you have installed. The other type of kernel is the generic kernel, in whichnearly every driver is built as a module.To use a generic kernel you'll need to build an initrd to load your filesystem moduleand possibly your drive controller or other drivers needed at boot time, configureLILO to load the initrd at boot, and reinstall LILO. See the docs in /boot after installing for more information. Slackware's Linux kernels come in both SMP andnon-SMP types now. The SMP kernel supports multiple processors, multi-core CPUs,HyperThreading, and about every other optimization available. In our own testing thiskernel has proven to be fast, stable, and reliable. We recommend using the SMPkernel even on single processor machines if it will run on them.From the beginning, Slackware has offered a stable and secure Linux distribution for UNIX veterans as well as an easy-to-use system for beginners. Slackware includeseverything you'll need to run a powerful server or workstation. Each Slackware package follows the setup and installation instructions from its author(s) as closely as possible, offering you the most stable and easily expandable setup.Here are some of the advanced features of Slackware 13.0:- Runs the version of the Linux kernel from ftp.kernel.org. Also included is akernel patched with Speakup to support speech synthesizers providing access to Linuxfor the visually impaired community. The 2.6.x kernel series has matured into a stablekernel, and provides reliable performance for your desktop or your production server.- System binaries are linked with the GNU C Library, version 2.9.
