Welcome to Slackware 11!

Slackware 11.0 is a complete distribution of the Linux operating system.

This version contains the 2.4.33.3 Linux kernel, plus recent versions of
these (and many more) software packages:

- C compiler             gcc-3.4.6
- Binutils               2.15.92.0.2
- GNU C Library          glibc-2.3.6
- X Window System        X11R6.9.0 (aka 7.0.0) from X.Org.
- KDE                    3.5.4
- Xfce                   4.2.3.2

For installation instructions, see the file 'Slackware-HOWTO'.

For details of important changes from Slackware 10.2 to 11.0, see the file
'CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT'.  Thanks to Robby Workman for help with this.

For information about how to upgrade from Slackware 10.2 to 11.0, see the
file 'UPGRADE.TXT'.  The information in 'CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT' will also
be valuable to read before attempting a system upgrade.  As would a backup.

These are some of the important files and directories found on the Slackware
FTP site:

  ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-11.0/

There is also a newer (and faster) primary FTP site for Slackware here:

  ftp://slackware.osuosl.org/pub/slackware/slackware-11.0/

Thanks to cwo.com for continuing to help us with hosting for our web site
and ftp.slackware.com, and to the OSU Open Source Lab for hosting our
archives at slackware.osuosl.org.

If you're reading this on a CD-ROM, these directories will probably be
split across several discs.

|   |
|   |-- README.TXT       How to burn a Bootable Slackware disc.
|   |-- initrd.img       Installation initrd (can also be loaded with Loadlin)

|
|-- kernels/             Many precompiled Linux 2.4.33.3 kernel images.
|   |
|   |-- adaptec.s/       Adaptec kernel.
|   |-- ataraid.s/       Kernel with ATA (IDE) RAID support.
|   |-- bare.i/          Standard IDE kernel.
|   |-- bareacpi.i       IDE/ATAPI kernel with ACPI power support.

|   |-- pportide.i/      Parallel port IDE kernel.
|   |-- raid.s/          SCSI RAID kernel.
|   |-- scsi.s/          Supports some SCSI cards (see bootdisks/README.TXT).
|   |-- scsi2.s/         Supports some SCSI cards (see bootdisks/README.TXT).
|   |-- scsi3.s/         Supports some SCSI cards (see bootdisks/README.TXT).
|   |-- speakup.s/       bare.i + Speakup speech support.  Also AIC7xxx SCSI.
|   |-- huge26.s/        A loaded 2.6.17.13 kernel with support for nearly all
|   |                    filesystems, SCSI controllers, and SATA.  This may
|   |                    be useful for getting Slackware installed on some
|   |                    hardware that's not supported by the 2.4.33.3 kernel.
|   |                    If you use this kernel, MAKE SURE that when you
|   |                    reach the installer's kernel installation menu that
|   |                    you install this kernel again, or you may find that
|   |                    the machine will not reboot properly.  Also, this
|   |                    kernel will require the kernel-modules package from
|   |                    /extra/linux-2.6.17.13/.
|   |-- test26.s         A loaded 2.6.18 kernel for testing (needs modules from
|   |                    testing/packages/linux-2.6.18).  Like huge26.s, this
|   |                    kernel supports nearly all filesystems, SCSI
|   |                    controllers, and SATA.  This may be useful for getting
|   |                    Slackware installed on some hardware that's not
|   |                    supported by the 2.4.33.3 kernel.  If you use this
|   |                    kernel, MAKE SURE that when you reach the installer's
|   |                    kernel installation menu that you install this kernel
|   |                    again, or you may find that the machine will not
|   |                    reboot properly.  To use this kernel, you will also
|   |                    need to install the kernel-modules package in
|   |                    /testing/packages/linux-2.6.18/ after finishing the
|   |                    installation process.
|   |                    If you really want to test or just try out the very
|   |                    latest Linux kernels, the place to look is on
|   |                    ftp.kernel.org in /pub/linux/kernel/v2.6.
|   |-- xfs.s/           Bootdisk with support for SGI XFS and AIC7xxx SCSI.
|   `-- zipslack.s/      Kernel with Iomega and other SCSI support.
|
|-- pasture/             These are packages that have been removed
|                        from Slackware, but are useful enough to
|                        keep around.  Might not be secure.
|
|                        Packages currently found here include apsfilter-7.2.5
|                        (not usually used with CUPS), LPRng-3.8.28,
|                        ifhp-3.5.18, db1-1.85, db2-2.4.14,  db3-3.3.11,

|   |-- README.TXT       This README.TXT file explains the various choices.
|   |-- install.1        install.1 and install.2 are the install floppy images.
|   |-- install.2        If you will be starting the install using a boot
|   |                    floppy, then you will need to load both of these.
|   |
|   |-- install.zip          install.zip is a version of the installer that
|   |-- install.zip.README   runs from a DOS partition.  See the README.
|   |
|   |-- network.dsk          This is used also with install.1 and install.2
|   |-- network.dsk.README   to do installation from an NFS server.
|   |
|   |-- pcmcia.dsk           This is used to activate PCMCIA devices (laptop

|                            In some cases this can be used to boot a CD in a
|                            machine that otherwise couldn't support it.

`-- zipslack/            This is ZipSlack, a small (under 250MB) Slackware
    |                    system packaged as a Zip file.  Installation
    |                    is as simple as unzipping zipslack.zip on a FAT or
    |                    FAT32 partition, or Zip disk.  It does not come
    |                    with X, but is a good starting point for a base
    |                    installation and includes enough networking tools
    |                    to be able to get online and fetch additional
    |                    packages.  The package management tools allow you
    |                    to add as much extra software as you have space
    |                    for (such as L and X, or even a complete Slackware
    |                    system including KDE) once you boot the system.
    |                    For more information, see the README.1st file.
