Top Operating Systems recently updated (Dic 2013)

Wed Dec 18, 2013 12:59 pm

Long time did not post here, and I would comment that I made a list about OS that have been updated in recent months if you are interested.

If someone does not know my blog: http://misapuntesde.com/post.php?id=332&lang=en

Thanks!

This is kind of pointless. Raspbian, for example, has updates coming almost every day that are very easily installed with apt-get. So it hardly matters if the latest SD image available is ages old.

I don't think so - Raspbian is pretty much the only one with updates all the time, so its worthwhile for the others.

Probably even more worthwhile for the OP's practice at writing English. Good for him/her.

Slackware hasn't been updated? LOL! :lol:

http://rpi.fatdog.eu/index.php?p=downloads - totally up-to-date as of 18 Dec 2013 regarding kernel, modules, and boot-fw.

Slackware is very much alive, current, and kicking on the Raspberry Pi. Even though it's not officially supported, recognised, or even acknowledged by the RPi Foundation. :P

How do you normally publicise it then? The Foundation can only recognise/acknowledge stuff they know about.

For Raspbian, there's www.raspberrypi.org ... for everything else there's Google.

Not sure that answered my post. Are you expecting the Foundation to use google to find out stuff to publicise? I'd suggest interrupt driven rather than polled might be a better approach.

You can always find the latest RISC OS build for the Raspberry Pi here.

I'm not sure you asked any question(s) worth answering. You can suggest all you like but I find the condescending manner in which you post most inappropriate. Please change your attitude.

<edit> I promote Slackware ARM on the Raspberry Pi. The Foundation doesn't. I don't care if they do or not. It's not my place to make those decisions. I will continue to spread the word about Slackware ARM on a Raspberry Pi. If I make certain observations along the way then take them as that and nothing more.

Sorry I'm late.

Please read the entire article:

"The list I put below are OS with a .img already created and does not need compilation. Perhaps some are rolling relased."

I refer to .img built recently. My apologies.

For recently built Slackware ARM .img that does not need compiling you should take a look at Stanley Garvey's website: http://stanleygarvey.com/slackwarearm_rpi/download.php

Stanley comments, "The preinstalled images are provided as a lazy way to get Slackware running on a Raspberry Pi®, the installer is based on the one at David Spencers site and uses the same partition scheme."

<edit> You have "Slackware - raspi-slack-installer_01Aug12.img.xz" from Dave's Collective (http://www.daves-collective.co.uk/raspi) in your list but Dave's image is not a prebuilt OS, it's just the Slackware ARM installer for the RPi. ;)
