Slackware, Slax Slackware users can now run their favourite distribution on Reiser4 partitions without having to re-format other partitions first. With the new Slackware 10.2 Reiser4 Installer one can install this distribution on Reiser4 almost as easy as with the more traditional filesystems (see the screenshot). The installer is distributed as a 20MB .iso image and should to be used with the original Slackware CD set (manual included).

slack is known for it's stability. adding experimental filesystems luckely doesn't make it to the official, stable version. no pin intented to reiser4, which i think is a wonderful filesystem, but the slack philosophy is tied to stability. happy to have pat around :-)
