About Slamd64 11.0 RC1

Slamd64 is an unofficial port of Slackware Linux to the x86_64 architecture.

Some More Detail

Slamd64-current is now Slamd64 11.0 RC1 - as with Slackware, there's likely to
be a few more changed before 11.0.

Release highlights:

1. Added Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.6

2. Added Mozilla Thunderbird 1.5.0.5

3. Added Seamonkey 1.0.4

4. Updated to gcc 3.4.6; gcj is now included, however -m32 support is now
disabled, although 32-bit programs will still run in slamd64 with the
packages in slackware/c/ - a slackware chroot is the recommended way of
compiling 32-bit programs.

5. Updated to udev 097; If installed, udev now replaces hotplug, and is must
faster

6. Linux 2.6.16.27 (huge26.s); Now that Slackware includes a 2.6 kernel on the
installer, slamd64 is using a nearly identical .config (differences:
architecture, 32-bit emulation enabled, future domain controller removed due
to compatibility issues)

7. Added spcmciautils - this should make configuring pcmcia cards much easier
on 2.6 kernels
