Announcing Slackware Linux 11!

The first Slackware release more than a year in the making, this edition of Slackware combines Slackware's legendary simplicity, stability, and security with some of the latest advances in Linux

technology.  Expect no less than the best Slackware yet.

Among the many program updates and distribution enhancements, you'll find two of the most advanced desktop environments available today: Xfce 4.2.3.2, a fast and lightweight but visually appealing and easy to use desktop environment, and KDE 3.5.4, the latest version of the award-winning K Desktop Environment.

Slackware uses the 2.4.33.3 kernel bringing you advanced performance features such as the ReiserFS journaling filesystem, SCSI and ATA RAID volume support, SATA support, and kernel support  for X DRI (the Direct Rendering Interface) that brings high-speed hardware accelerated 3D graphics to Linux.  Additional kernels allow installing Slackware using any of the journaling filesystems available for Linux, including ext3, ReiserFS, IBM's JFS, and SGI's XFS.  Slackware 11.0 also fully supports the 2.6 kernel series, with your choice of the well-tested 2.6.17.13 kernel in /extra (including a version of this kernel that supports multiple processors, multi-core CPUs, HyperThreading, and  about every other optimization available), or the recently released 2.6.18 kernel in /testing.  This kernel also spent a long time in development and in our own testing has proven to be fast, stable, and reliable.

All of these kernels may be used with Slackware's CD/DVD based installation system, and NFS network installs may be done using the 2.6.17.13 (huge26.s) kernel.

From the beginning, Slackware has offered a stable and secure Linux distribution for UNIX veterans as well as an easy-to-use system for beginners.  Slackware includes everything you'll need to run a powerful server or workstation.  Each Slackware package follows the setup and installation instructions from its author(s) as closely as possible, offering you the most stable and easily expandable setup.

Slackware 11.0.
