Slax weekly update #14

written by Tomas M. 6 years ago

I'm again few days late with the weekly update, as usual :) Anyway, this week's weekly update will be skipped :) You can download Slax rc3 from here: http://ftp.slax.org/Slax-7.x/testing/rc3/

The interesting changes include:

  • Slax is now translated to more than 50 languages
  • added 'slax' use like 'slax activate'
  • avoid unwanted error warnings about missing devices
  • bootinst script fixes and improvements
  • added some firmware including radeon and some wifi drivers
  • support from=/path/slax.iso boot parameter to load slax data from the given iso
  • Firefox style improvements, Slax software Center
  • added module tools such as sb2dir, deb2sb, txz2sb
  • added development module. Total Slax size is now around 210MB (for 32bit)
  • new wallpaper, hooray!

  • I expect that the final version will not have any more changes and this RC3 will become final on Monday 10th of December 2012. Yet plans may change, of course, if a critical problem is found or such. Thank you very much for all your feedback and testing!
