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."

If you want Slack with PAM, I believe the simplest way to get it is to install Dropline Gnome. Patrick has said (I think it was the Linux Link Tech Show podcast where I heard this) that that is enough of a change to make Dropline/Slack a fork in his view; so proceed at your own risk without the blessing of the BDFL I suppose. I use Freerock myself for the Gnome apps, though I still use KDE for the desktop. Of course, I don't need LDAP and all that heavy-lifting server stuff.
