Updated the ISO today to latest -current, kernel 6.1.7, and included some software updates for gnome which have landed in the repo already. Also added a GNOME 3.38.9 Slackware 15.0-based ISO I made for fun for my personal use on my old hackintosh desktop. It mimics the default Debian ‘bullseye’ GNOME install, and has it’s own repo attached. I’ll put up more information at a later date, I’m pressed for time at the moment. Try it out if you like the faster and stable GNOME experience pre-40+ versions. It includes the latest libreoffice 7.4.4 and some desktop games as well as the Gnome-Flashback optional desktop (X11 only). Don’t expect many updates as 3.38 is EOL but I’ll be adding some more apps to the repo over time. Enjoy!
Updated the ISO yesterday to include all the latest changes to -current. Kernel 6.1.4 is included this time around! Don’t forget to run “slackpkg update && slackpkg upgrade-all” as root to get the latest repo updates (repo was updated after the ISO so the latest changes weren’t included). Cheers!
Updated the ISO today to include over 20 missing python dependancies for pika-backup which enable the use of google accounts/services to backup your data to.
Also with the latest -current changes as well today.
The holiday events are over and things will start to go back into their usual flow soon in the world. And as such, it’s Sunday/Monday, my normal day to update the liveslak ISO. So we’ve got the latest in -current and with that also now the Linux 6.1.2 kernel from testing/ instead of the 5.19.17 still shipping in -current.
I’ve also noticed I’ve skipped over some Python deps for Pika-Backup (but it appears to operate?), I’ll be adding those as soon as I finish creating SlackBuilds for them. It never ends with the Python…
I noticed those deps were missing during my initial porting of nwg-shell to/for Slackware. nwg-shell is a sway/gtk-based shell written in Go and Python, and it’s really nice to work from. Only there are still some bugs I haven’t patched up yet (you can’t shutdown/restart from the menu) and others. But there is a repo up for it for “testing” purposes. If you’re feeling frisky, go ahead and give it a shot. Add the repo to slackpkg+ and see what you think (or what you can break)!
