Patiently Waiting for 13.37

The new version of Slackware Linux is the talk of the Slackers all ’round the Net this past week. Version 13.37 has hit the Testing repos.

It should be released very soon as a stable update. I can hardly wait. I’m still running 13.0 on my desktop system. I am running 13.1 on my lappy. I’m going to plow them both under and install 13.37. I won’t format my /home partitions, though. That way most of my configs and preferences should remain intact. I will have to reinstall quite a bit of software, but that’s OK.

Most of what I need is in the Slack repos. What isn’t, I have Slackbuilds. I may have to upgrade the build scripts, though, or see how fast the 13.37 stuff pops up on SlackBuild‘s server. Either way, shouldn’t be that big of an issue thanks to the simplicity of Slackware. It’s a joy.

*thrumming fingers on desk*

I’m patiently waiting…


P.S. Thank you, Pat V. and the rest of the team. Pssst… and Robby, I might give your Xfce 4.8 a tryout in 13.37.

Trackbacks are closed, but you can post a comment.

    I find it funny that Pat decided to name it 13.37 as in leet (elite).

      Pat V. definitely has a sense of humor. He’s one of those guys I’d like to sit and have a cup of coffee with sometime. I bet it would be interesting.

    Yeah he is definitely a true geek and the One True Slacker heheheh.

    Since he is an avid home brewer, I would like to sit down to one of his beers rather than some coffee. I would love to meet him though.
