Welcome to Slackware 12.2!

Slackware 12.2 is a complete distribution of the Linux operating system.

Here are some versions of major components of Slackware 12.2:

- Linux kernel           2.6.27.7
- C compiler             gcc-4.2.4
- Binutils               2.18.50.0.9
- GNU C Library          glibc-2.7
- X Window System        Updated (but not "bleeding edge") packages
                         from X.Org
- KDE                    3.5.10
- Xfce                   4.4.3

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

For instructions to upgrade from Slackware 12.1 to 12.2, see the file
'UPGRADE.TXT'.  You would still be well advised to backup your machine
first if it contains any important data.

For details of important changes from Slackware 12.1 to 12.2, see the file
'CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT'.

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

  ftp://ftp.slackware.com/pub/slackware/slackware-12.2/

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

  ftp://slackware.osuosl.org/pub/slackware/slackware-12.2/

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.

|   |                    aspell-word-lists, bash-completion, bittornado,
|   |                    bittorrent, brltty, btmgr-3.7, dip-3.3.7p,

|   |                    ones, which might be needed to compile drivers or
|   |                    other kernel modules), mpg123, and slacktrack.
|   |
|   `-- source/          Source code for the extra packages.
|
|-- isolinux/            The ISOLINUX loader and initrd.img used to install
|   |                    Slackware from installation media or the network.
|   |                    Also found here is a README.TXT file describing how
|   |                    to create a Slackware installation ISO image and
|   |                    burn it to CD-R or DVD-(+)R.
|   |
|   |-- README.TXT       How to burn a Bootable Slackware disc.
|   |
|   `-- initrd.img       Installation initrd (can also be loaded with Loadlin)
|
|-- kernels/             Precompiled Linux 2.6.27.7 kernel images.
|   |
|   |-- gensmp.s         A generic 2.6.27.7 Linux kernel.  You'll need an
|   |                    initrd to switch from hugesmp.s to this kernel, but
|   |                    you'll save a bit of RAM, may get a slight
|   |                    performance increase, and won't get ugly (but
|   |                    harmless) -EEXIST warnings at boot as udev tries
|   |                    to load modules for things that are built into the
|   |                    kernel.
|   |
|   |-- generic.s        The generic version of huge.s.  This should work
|   |                    on 486 or better equipment.  Like gensmp.s, this
|   |                    kernel will require an initrd to boot.  See the
|   |                    README file in /boot after installing if you're
|   |                    interested in switching to the generic kernel.
|   |
|   |-- hugesmp.s        The default standard install kernel for Slackware.
|   |                    This supports pretty much everything in the
|   |                    2.6.27.7 kernel.  This kernel requires at least
|   |                    a Pentium-Pro processor.
|   |
|   |-- huge.s           A single-processor version of huge.s that will
|   |                    function with older hardware such as a 486 with
|   |                    64 or more MB of RAM.
|   |
|   `-- speakup.s        A huge.s kernel patched to support speakup
|                        speech output through various hardware and 
|                        software speech synthesizers.
|
|-- 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, bison-1.35, db1-1.85, db2-2.4.14,
|   |                    db3-3.3.11, db31-3.1.17, db4-4.1.25, db4-4.2.52,
|   |                    fvwm95-2.0.43ba, ifhp-3.5.18, libxml-1.8.17,

|                        12.2, the directory is shipped empty.  The new
|                        features will continue development in the next
|                        Slackware -current, possibly to be merged into

    |                       not an optical disc.  For PXE, the initrd.img
