Linux Distribution: Slamd64
Url: http://slamd64.com/
Slamd64-current is now Slamd64 11.0 RC1 - as with Slackware, there are likely to be a few more changes before 11.0. Release highlights: added Firefox 1.5.0.6, Thunderbird 1.5.0.5, Seamonkey 1.0.4; updated to GCC 3.4.6; updated to udev 097, if installed, u
Linux Release Details:
Slamd64 Linux 12.2 has been released
Slamd64 12.2 is released, and is an incremental improvement over 12.1, including:


  • Linux 2.6.27.7

  • GCC 4.2.4

  • Apache HTTPD 2.2.10, with SSL support and PHP 5.2.8

  • Updated development tools

  • KDE 3.5.10

  • XFCE 4.4.3

  • Mozilla Firefox 3.0.5

  • Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0.0.19

  • Sun Java (JRE and JDK) 6u11




Like previous releases of Slamd64, 12.2 provides seamless FHS-compliant 32-bit compatibility, via a multilib system (/lib for 32-bit libraries and /lib64 for 64-bit libraries). This provides easier and increased support for both existing 32-bit software (in most cases, you can just install a package designed for Slackware with no special work needed), and for 64-bit binaries too (which require /lib64/ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 to be present) such as the NVidia drivers, without requiring compatability symlinks which clutter the root directory and remove the separation of 32 and 64-bit binaries.

nspluginwrapper is still included in c/, allowing you to easily use 32-bit browser plugins (such as Adobe Flash) in the included 64-bit browsers, such as Firefox and Konqueror - given the availability of prerelease 64-bit versions of Adobe Flash Player and Sun's Java Plugin, this will hopefully vanish soon.
