Re: Zenwalk 8.0 is on the road !

At the moment, i have allocated 40 GB for / in that 15+ is already consumed and for /home its just taking 2.5Gb so far in the last 1 year of usage. Based on that, i shall go for 10 Gb /home and rest for / as apps take up more space and also lots of packages reside on /var/packages which i think is n...

Re: Zenwalk 8.0 is on the road !

Thankfully Jp, i do quite often upgrade packages off slack and zenwalk repos. Hence last night i did check the upgrade package (Red ones in CLI), its not too many. So i guess it should be good. I can not do a fresh install, as i have done alot of additional package installations which are not availa...

Re: Zenwalk 8.0 is on the road !

Awesome news guys. Great work every one. Glad to see the Zenwalk project back and shining.

Re: Some news from Minislack

Jp, Slightly confused. If you propose to upgrade from current version to this new without ISO installation. Which repo? Just the zenwalk mirror helps? When i did netpkg list on this repo, i did not see much changes to many packages. So i wonder, apart from updated Chrome, whats new with the new vers...

I tried reading an article, nothing went in.
I would be happy to use the old GUI based netfilter though ;)

Re: Zenwalk 7.9.3 is ready

I also noticed that there is no firewall being supported OOTB, which earlier not the case. I fail to get a Firestarter (earlier supported package) in the repos.

Jp, will there be any support for the firewalls soon?
