Initial testing: A sound start at Slacko64. It has a nimble feel and great LAN awareness and presence.

Hope this helps

I found a version of ddcprobe which now works. I could not find one previously which probably rendered xorgwizard useless. (That will be changing one day anyway).

There isn't much use to post a pet as it will probably just mess up current savefiles. However I will put it in the next version. Seems to work ok in my tests. Output on my current machine is identical to slacko-5.6.

"I have just downloaded the slacko64-5.8.7.iso "

nickau, just wondering if you noticed the other iso at the download site: slacko64-5.8.6.iso

I downloaded both just in case, since I have two 64 bit machines.

Also, did you try running the xorgwizard and choosing vesa instead of probing for a driver in xorg? That usually works for me.

Regards,
Ed

I downloaded the slacko64-5.8.7.iso and did a frugal install on my hard drive and works good with my amd 64 (4 core processor) with ati radeon hd 3200 video.

For the life of me though I can not get it to boot when trying to do a full install on the hard drive though:

"Kernel panic - not syncing: No init found. Try passing init="

Long story short I think the file system is not getting mounted correctly. I checked the md5sum on the iso and it is good. I even re-compiled the kernel from your source provided just for kicks and came up with the same error.

I would like to do a full install to see if I can get my dvb apps running on 64 bit like i did on precise 5.7.1. Might be better.

I would like to try the earlier version mentioned above; but have not found it yet.

Thanks for your work!!

Thanks for your work!!

What boot loader are you using?
How did you make the boot menu entry for the full install?

Did a frugal install on my ThinkPad R500, basic functionality is there, as expected, WiFi is recognized and easily set up. But when I tried to enter static IP in classic network wizard, it threw an error saying that IP, netmask, Gateway and DNS were invalid. Upon re-checking, the respective fields were empty. I suppose the values are not written to their proper destination, maybe an issue with permissions? Frisbee did the trick, but still requests an IP address from dhcp (the dhcp-server is shut down in the router, so no problem).

Closing the lid does not give any effect.

German language pack applied and most everything is german now.

Did not do much more testing, looks quite promising so far.

Missing binaries. Download the attached file, then do "tar -xf bins.tar.gz -C /" and you should be good (I think).

Hi Mick,

I've just been lurking in the forum and discovered your latest Slacko64. It's impressive and is working great on my system. Very Happy Of course, I haven't yet tried the Nvidia driver.

I used your getlibreoffice pet to install the latest Libre Office which is working fine. Also, discovered that Fatdog's Bibletime program works fine.

Hope that you are planning on adding a Wine capability so that some Windows 32 bit programs can run. I tried Fatdog's version which did not work.

Thanks again for your super distribution which continues to improve.

Jim

Thanks for reports

It's still early days. Obviously xorgwizard is broken due to the lack of ddcprobe which I have found and will be in the next. The goal of the next version is to get all bins and apps that are in standard slacko working and accounted for. It will still be alpha but then I have to get back to 32 bit for awhile. I've had some time constraints lately so haven't had the productivity I would have liked to this point.

Cheers
