Upgrading to Slackware-Current

Somehow this wound up as a draft instead of being posted, so it’s a little out dated. (less than a week)

I couldn’t wait for Slack 11 to come out, and problems upgrading X11 have “forced” me to install the latest version of Slackware on my machine.

The general process isn’t too difficult if you follow the instructions here and make the install CD using the information here. Basically you run a script to rsync /slackware-current and then use mkisofs on the downloaded files. The best thing about this is that you can make an install DVD so you don’t have to use and extra CD to install KDE, and you have the stuff in slackware-current/extra too!

It will take a decent amount of time to download all the files, and a lot of hard drive space (roughly 4GB)
