Announcement: Slacko 5.6 is released!

On August 13, 2013, I hereby announce the release of Slacko Puppy Linux Version 5.6

This is the successor to Slacko 5.5 which was a very successful release. It is still based on the solid binary packages of Slackware 14.0. Coincidentally, 5.5 was released on March 5 this year, my Mum’s birthday. Today happens to be my son’s birthday! Happy birthday Jackson  8-).

There are some great new features including:

  • experimental f2fs support
  • ability to run internet programs as unprivileged user, Spot
  • latest Firefox ESR 17.0.8
  • latest Google Chrome in repo
  • latest OpenOffice 4.0 and LibreOffice 4.1.0 in the SFS Manager
  • latest Skype in the SFS Manager plus much more
  • latest Nvidia and AMD/ATI graphics drivers for new and legacy cards

You can read more about it at the Slacko Home Page.

Enjoy!  :dog:

  1. Slacko… a fantastic linux distribution but….

    NO SUPPORT FOR WIRELESS 802.11n (Conceptronic 150n Wireless) so I reserve it for low speed conection (FTTH 150Mb/seg connection not supported)
