Hello,

I am pleased to announce you that superBoxon bare metal version 22.10 is now released.

This ISO image is what I use to build the bases of superBoxon live version. This version is a minimalist version of the Slackware distribution to which I have added some extra packages I use, and It works exactly the same as the Slackware distribution, so at the end of installation you will only get a customized Slackware with all the remaining settings to do by yourself.

Note: Check this tutorial before processing if you want to install this ISO image.

Go to download page to get the ISO image.

So a few news. After a float period that allowed me to reorganize my life, I can finally start again in good conditions since my employer transformed my employment contract into a permanent contract, so I have a job (and the income that goes with it) for several years if all goes well, which allows me to fund my life, and by extension my projects.

So first change, I will now provide an installable version of the Slackware distibution I am using to generate the superBoxon distribution. It will be exactly the same as the Slackware "current", with the difference that it will also contains the packages I recompiled in addition of packages coming directly from the Slackware "current".

Next, I will start working on the software that will allow the installation and update of the superBoxon distribution in such a way to finally get a system that is really usable in a production environment.

So a lot of good things to come, stay tuned.

Hello,

I am pleased to announce you that superBoxon version 22-04 is now released.

It's remaining a lot of work to be done, but it seems to me that my project is moving in the right direction since I have resolved a lot of issues.

Please consider that this version is a "BETA" version and may not be used as main system on a production computer as I released it just to show that my project is not a vaporware, so be patient, I will release a more polished version soon.

Hello all, this time it's the right one.

I just regenerated the latest version of my live ISO image of superBoxon based on the April 6, 2022 snapshot of Slackware64 current with the few modifications I made to it.

Yes, I know, April 6 was a month ago, but it doesn't matter, I will use newer versions as I will automate the build process.

It works well on QEMU/KVM, so I will spend a couple of days to test it on the few real computers I have and running it from a USB stick.

If everything works fine, then I will make it available within a week.

So, wish me luck so that everything goes well...

Regards.

Sorry for the lack of news, my mistakeā€¦

I'm actually working with a Slackware 15 base to build a variant which use the good old way of Linux/UN*X distros, no PAM/elogind and other controversial parts, but only the old Consolekit2/cgmanager for the moment as I don't have time to trim useless parts, and as in some way I like these components.

Fortunately, my situation has changed recently and I found a job that can fund me while I'm working on superBoxon.

So, don't worry, there will some good news in a very short time.
