Slackware, Slax Patrick J. Volkerding announced the first release candidate of Slackware 12 in the current changelog. This will be the first Slackware release with a kernel from the 2.6 tree (2.6.21.5) as default. "It's that time again, and here we have Slackware 12.0 release candidate 1! If we're lucky, we got it all right the first time. Big thanks to the crew."

Yes, Slackware is still using lilo and there is still the same easy-to-install grub package in the /extras directory, which has been there for a long time. The nice thing about the grub package in /extras is that it includes a "grubconfig" tool just like the "liloconfig" tool that is included by default. So, switching to grub is as easy as uninstalling the lilo package, installing the grub package, and running grubconfig. Piece of cake.
