Slackware 13.37… I Couldn’t Wait

I spent the last day or so wiping/reformatting/reinstalling… SLACKWARE!

I’ve done this so many times since v9.x, that I’ve got it down to the proverbial art form. I initially tried for a tandem upgrade –> 13.0 to 13.1 and then on to 13.37. It sorta’ almost worked. I was having Nouveau/Nvidia issues with 13.1 and again with 13.37; I could boot both to the command line, though. I really borked up 13.37 when I made a error somewhere compiling my kernel. Oh well…

I wiped it all away with a few commands and installed nice and fresh… the way it’s meant to be done. It took me the better part of yesterday and today to get it all up and running the way I like it. All’s well, though. I’m in 13.37. Weeeeee!

Now, I just have to sit and wait for it to go final. That ought to just take a few more days. Once that happens, a little modification of my mirrors file and I should be good to go.

Thank YOU, Pat V… and ALL the acolytes!

Have fun!
