SlackEX Distro Lets You Run Slackware 14.1 with Linux Kernel 4.0.4 and KDE 4.10.5

The most important feature of SlackEX 14.1 Build 150523 is the addition of a custom 4.0.4-x86_64-exton kernel based on the latest stable upstream Linux kernel 4.0.4, which includes support for new hardware components. Arne Exton’s special 4.0.4 kernel can be used on Slackware 12.0 to 14.1, as well as all Slackware-based distributions, including Zenwalk, Slax, and SlackEX. The 64-bit kernel has been compiled using the same recipe used for Slackware’s latest huge kernel.
