Slax 9.3 beta 1 ready for download

written by Tomas M. 93 days ago

I am almost ready to release the next Slax version. But before I do so, I would like to get some feedback on the current progress. So I've prepared a beta release, you can download Slax 9.3 beta from here:

  • Slax 9.3 beta 64bit (256MB)
  • Slax 9.3 beta 32bit (266MB)

  • In order to better organize feedback from users, lets use google groups. It is a mailing list, everybody should be able to send a message to it, and if you join the group, you'll also get answers from other users.

    Get in touch here:

    You can of course post a comment in this blog as well, but using the mailing list should be more beneficial for everybody. Lets see how it goes :)

    This beta release includes the following changes:

  • Persistent changes is now default if you boot Slax from a writable media
  • Newly installed applications have their icons added to xLunch screen automatically
  • Added File Manager (pcmanfm), set to show drives in the left sidebar
  • Fixed Slax booting from NTFS and EXT4 filesystems.
  • Added lots of wifi-related firmware drivers and wicd as network manager.
  • Testing is needed, please test if you can. Thank you!

  • Enjoy the beta release!
    If everything goes smoothly, we should have next Slax in a week.

    Tomas M.
