Slacko and Slacko64 are released!




I have the pleasure of announcing 2 new stable releases from the Slacko Puppy Linux family.

Slacko64 6.3.0 and Slacko 6.3.0

Slacko64 is the very first 64 bit official Puppy Linux to be released. I have been running it myself for over 18 months and I have finally brought it up to release status. It has a brand new theme I call “Buntoo”, which is basically an Ubuntu Unity knock off but with Rox Filer, GTK2 and JWM!

Slacko (the 32 bit version) is an upgrade for the last stable release – Slacko 5.7. It has all the same features as Slacko64 but with a different default theme, however the buntoo theme can be applied from a new program called PTheme. Look for it in the menu.

The Slacko 6.3.0 family uses libraries and binaries from the upstream stable Slackware (64)-14.1 so any program built for slackware should run in Slacko as long as dependencies are met.

For more information and download links visit the new Slacko website.

I hope you enjoy using it as much as I did making it!

Mick.
