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 🙂
