Hash: SHA1

Beyond Linux From Scratch 6.3 RC1 Launched

,----[ Quote ]
| Beyond Linux From Scratch (BLFS), the complement to the Linux From Scratch 
| book, is now version 6.3 RC1. After 15 months of work since the last release 
| of BLFS and approximately nine months from the 6.3 release of LFS, Beyond 
| Linux From Scratch will guide the reader through additions to the system 
| including sound, printer and scanner support, networking and much more.    


Slackware + GNOME for the veterans that still use it...

Announcement for GNOME SlackBuild GNOME 2.22.1 Desktop for Slackware 12.1

,----[ Quote ]
| Hello!  We are pleased to announce that the GNOME SlackBuild GNOME
| 2.22.1 Desktop is now available for users of the latest Slackware 12.1
| release! There have been a lot of improvements in this latest GSB
| release, including the move to PulseAudio, fewer package replacements, a
| GNOME-integrated Compiz-Fusion setup, the latest NetworkManager, Abiword
| 2.6, and OpenOffice2.4 built for GNOME, a richer Mono C# suite, as well
| as all the great features of GNOME 2.22. 



Linux From Scratch - LFS 6.3 Release

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linux From Scratch community is pleased to announce the release of LFS 
| Version 6.3. This release includes numerous changes to LFS-6.2 (including 
| update to Linux-, GCC-4.1.2, Glibc-2.5) and security fixes. It also 
| includes a large amount of editorial work on the explanatory material 
| throughout the book, improving both the clarity and accuracy of the text.    



Slackware [12.1] Release Announcement

,----[ Quote ]
| Well folks, it's that time to announce a new stable Slackware release
| again.  So, without further ado, announcing Slackware version 12.1!  
| Since we've moved to supporting the 2.6 kernel series exclusively (and
| fine-tuned the system to get the most out of it), we feel that Slackware
| 12.1 has many improvements over our last release (Slackware 12.0) and is a
| must-have upgrade for any Slackware user.


First look at Slackware Linux 12.1

,----[ Quote ]
| All these points hint at an excellent (if not perfect) server and -- with a
| few tweaks and an occasional trip to one of the third-party Slackware
| repositories (see our Slackware page for a list) -- a fairly decent desktop
| system, especially for those who already know a thing or two about Linux.
| Slackware Linux also remains a great base system for custom solutions, as
| demonstrated by the many Slackware-based distributions that exists on the
| market. But overall, it's a mixed bag - a solid, stable and well-tested
| operating system, but clearly designed for the more knowledgeable user (or a
| user willing to learn) than the average Joe.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
