I’ve uploaded a GNOME 44 liveslak which features packages from https://reddoglinux.ddns.net/, N4t3R has gone above and beyond to get GNOME 44 running on Slackware by the date of release and rather than duplicate the effort, I figure I’ll just run forward with it. This new ISO will be offered along side my GNOME 43 Slackware system. I will continue work in that area myself (and a aarch64 repo is coming, I swear) but since my time is thin, I’m not going out of my way to add more x86 things to maintain. My focus is for aarch64 and I must regain my focus in that area going forward. I will also be updating the GNOME 43 ISO today as well, so keep a look-out for that.

Since GNOME 44 is the new hotness, I’ve put up a mirror (https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1EPAmMfQuN7_uzaZXS1GzrylzqaLznbyI?usp=sharing) for the ISO on gdrive which may offer better download speeds, depending on where you are in the world.

Moving forward, I’ll look to focus on the nwg-shell I maintain on SBo and sorting things for aarch64, which hopefully before long, I can offer a nice selection of software for.


I’ve pushed another iso update today to include the OpenSSL 3.0 upgrade as well as a patch to grub which fixes grub from reading ext file systems created with the newer e2fsprogs versions I’d you use the iso as a rescue disk, you want the grub patch. Trust me.
