Slackintosh 10.2-final is released!

Upgrading from 10.1 to 10.2 is recommended:
 10.1 is somewhat broken (gcc --static doesn't work) and
 was something like a proof-of-concept ;-)

 10.2 should be pretty stable.

Bootable ISO-Images:


Slackintosh 10.2 contains all security-fixes for Slackware 10.2
up to SSA:2005-286-01 (OpenSSL)

Fixes for 10.1 are provided until 10.3/11 is released

Upgrading from 10.1:

Upgrading Slackintosh 10.1 to 10.2 works the same as
upgrading Slackware. So you can follow Pat's instructions:

Using Slapt-Get may also work:

1) Install
   on your 10.1 system

2) run
   # slapt-get --update
   # slapt-get --upgrade
   .. to get an up-to-date 10.1 system

3) change /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc
   -> Replace 10.1 with 10.2

4) run
   # slapt-get --update
   # slapt-get --dist-upgrade
   (add --no-md5 if it complains about gtk+2..)

5) Check if slapt-get replaced/upgraded the glibc
   # /lib/libc.so.6 |grep version
   => Version should be 2.3.5

6) You may have to cleanup some old lib-clutter inside /lib
   (the old libc may still be there, remove it if you don't need it)
   and checkout /etc for *.new files

7) You are now running 10.2 :-)
   btw: slapt-get does *not* upgrade
   the kernel, you have to do this yourself if you
   need a newer kernel
   (Don't forget to run 'ybin')
