Slackware, Slax Patrick Volkerding, Slackware's maintainer, announced that Slackware 10.2 is going into beta: "I think it's time to consider this to be mostly frozen and concentrate on beta testing in preparation for the Slackware 10.2 release, so there won't be too many more upgrades and additions."

Slackware 10.2 and Kernel 2.6

Slackware 10.2 will ship with 2.4 as default. I asked Pat this a couple of days ago when I was asking him about the -current kernel and ACPI. His reply was, in part:

"It will install with 2.4.31, but there will also be 2.6.12.3 (or better)
in the /testing directory."

Yes, it's a shame, as 2.6 would really be useful for my laptop, but I respect his decision.
