Slackware 10.2 Release On The Horizon?

I’ve just updated some files on my home box which runs Slackware-current when I noticed the following new file:

New: pkgtools-10.2.0-i486-1 (179 kB) - Installed: pkgtools-10.1.0-i486-4

Usually, the pkgtools package version numbering is consistent with the Slackware version it ships with. I guess when /etc/slackware-version file is updated, which by the way, is in the aaa_base package, then we’ll definitely know that things are cooking.

For now, all us Slackers can do is just wait patiently for more news 🙂

    I guess your estimate might be quite accurate. However, the good thing about Slackware is that you can always opt to use the -current tree if you like living on the bleeding edge.

    And when you’re using -current, version numbering doesn’t really matter that much 🙂

    Thanks for commenting. I visited your blog and must say I’m impressed with your content. I’ll make it a point to visit it more often. Keep up the good work!

    using swaret for packages update is really awesome and i define VERSION=current so I can live with the tip top security patch and bug fix . but i think it’s not suitable for production environment which is better do it manually. i’m afraid it will break something and you would end up fired by the management because you make them lost some $$$$..ehhe..be careful with an automation tools 🙂
