Releasing final Slax 11.2.0

More than two years since the previous update, I am happy to announce the immediate availability of final Slax version 11.2.0.
It has been an interesting journey, thanks everyone for your suggestions, help and testing.

This release features EFI support for USB booting and complete update of all packages to the versions
available in Debian Bullseye. Furthermore, it provides full AUFS support, so you can continue working
with additional modules as like in previous Slax versions, add and/or remove modules on the fly. Changelog here

The core of Slax remains similar like always, network connection can be now managed using connman, and most importantly,
chrome is no longer a part of Slax, but you can still install it with a single click or two, as well as VLC video player.

"full AUFS support" how ? Rebuild debian kernels ?

Tomas M 2022-02-22 13:23

Yes, kernel is recompiled using Debian's sources and config, with AUFS added.

TheNoobster 2022-02-22 13:51

Awesome thank you for this update Tomas :)

Hopefully I will get to test it this weekend.

Congratulations, Tomas! I'm happy to enjoy SLAX 11 today. Thank you very much for everything.

Hi,

one quick question how is sound handled on this version? I don't see pulseaudio. Thank you

And-S 2022-02-24 14:32

TheNoobster, ALSA

TheNoobster 2022-02-24 15:12

Thank you And-S, so sound won't work for firefox, right? Because I think I remember that firefox dropped ALSA support.

And-S 2022-02-24 15:49

TheNoobster,
apt install apulse
Then run FF:
apulse firefox

TheNoobster 2022-02-24 15:55

Thank you And-S.

Hi,

how do I make slax's savechanges command recognize all changes?

For example adding chrome addons is not recognized by the savechanges command and I have to manually add chrome addons during runtime every time.

Thanks for the new release. it fixes issues with newer LAN drivers.

I thought slax would never release a version again, but the new version is out and I'm very happy. Great distro I wish it could be installed on hard disk as well.

efi loader seems to halt in virtualbox and not detected on real hardware.
what am I missing?

Jna 2022-02-26 07:43

There is a bug in EFI in Slax which makes it unable to boot on some devices.
It has been addressed and next release should have it fixed.

Jose 2022-02-26 20:33

commenting from slax v9. i have tried to correct the efi bug in v11. any suggestions other than waiting for the next release? this device doesn't boot EFI. when i install the "bootinst.sh" to a ext4 formatted usb stick the EFI folder moves out of Slax/boot to a new EFI/boot folder. have copied contents to the now empty EFI folder in slax/boot no change. looked at syslinux.cfg to see if vmlinuz has .efi and it doesn't. have tried formatting usb stick as fat 32, and still no luck. have made a stick with mkusb and still no joy. i love Slax and would really like to make it work without buying a new device or waiting for a release that is compatible with my current device. thank you.

Tore 2022-03-03 12:54

Yes but as in other previous versions of slax, on my win 7 after loading everything comes to the spinning circle animation and then the screen stays black, maybe it can't set the right resolution, however I see all the uploads OK desktop stays black, how to do?

TheNoobster, Debian build firefox-esr with ALSA support. Sound working without pulseaudio or apulse.

Hi: I tried installing Slax on a hard drive. It worked great as the only OS. But I couldn't figure out how to make it dual boot. Any suggestions
