Slackel Hellenic Linux Distribution

djemos profile image Dimitris Tzemos Updated on ・2 min read

Slackel 1.0 version was released on 2005 and it was a KDE edition. It was based on slackware 10.2 stable. It was reconfigured with greek language and applications i needed. Then i created a live iso with linux-live scripts 5.1.8 from slax. So i could install it without having to configure it again from the beginning.

Slackel is now based on Slackware current tree and also use Salix tools for maintaining the system.

Slackel can be used as a testing environment where new features can be tested which later can be used when current tree will become the next stable release of slackware.

Slackel Live iso images are created with http://www.slackel.gr/repo/source/slackel-source/slackware-live-0.5/0.5.4/ forked Slackware-Live scripts from LiNomad.
The SLI gui live installer, of LiNomad further http://www.slackel.gr/repo/source/slackel-source/slackware-live-installer-1.2.5/ developed adding new features to easily install the system to hard disk or make a Live USB.
There is also the http://www.slackel.gr/isos/slackel-live/install_on_usb.sh]install_on_usb.sh script to create a Live USB and a persistent file.
