While I haven’t been active on posting new tidbits recently, I am quite active on keeping up with things over here. While I don’t currently offer a GNOME 43 liveslak, any existing systems should still be getting GNOME updates. Recently, I updated to the 43.8 release and continually upgrade libs and other bits as time allows. I use 43 on -current and the 38 repo on 15.0, so I tend to keep them moving, if I’m the only one using them– well then it’s worth my time 😉

NWG-SHELL – We’re currently completely up-to-date across x86_64 and aarch64, with the latest golang 1.21.1, hyprland 0.29.1, sway 1.8.1, and of course, nwg-shell 0.5.9.

The GNOME 44 liveslak was updated Wednesday, featuring the current 44.4 release, and all the extra modules there are completely up-to-date as well. I’ve also put together a nwg-shell liveslak which operates much the same as the GNOME offering from me. Though, that one needs some updating, I’ll have to save that for next week.

I’ve been spending a lot of time with CRUX, it’s a system I’ve found I actually like quite a lot. No doubt my interest in CRUX stems from all the time I spend making SlackBuilds (as it’s a source based distro), but getting to know the ins-and-outs of the distro has led me down many paths. I’ve ported the complete XFCE4 Desktop to the distro (ok… I’m missing like 2 plugins), and the port collection is a good portion of an entire system in it’s own right. I’d like to eventually get nwg-shell running over there, and work has been done, it’s just not ready for the world yet.

Still, my love for Slackware is strong and using another system makes me appreciate home so much more. My time spent with either of these distros, is time I truly enjoy using my computers. I’m happy with how things are going, and even if I don’t post much news, know that I’m always working on something cool and fun to bring to the table!
