Slackware, Slax I was interested to see how Zenwalk differs from Slackware, and after reading on their web site that version 2.01 is 'the biggest jump in Zenwalk evolution since the beginning of the project', I wanted to see how far Zenwalk has come since it was reviewed here as MiniSlack.

2.6 kernel and reiserfs4

You can install a 2.6 kernel with Slackware 10.2 (or current). It's called test26. It's what I installed on my desktop and ran until I got a good compile of 2.6.14.3. Of course, it being a Slackware kernel, it's plain vanilla, and Zenwalk's isn't.

I understand there is (or was) a lot of back and forth about reiserfs4. It apparently has something to do with which fs bits should go in the kernel and which shouldn't (too deep for me).

I'm actually running Zenwalk on my centrino laptop now, and it's working fine for me. Haven't updated anything yet, and I probably won't soon. but it is the first distro outside of Ubuntu that has everything working.

Thanks for reading my article.
