SlackEX Linux Live Now Powered by Linux Kernel 4.7.1, Based on Slackware 14.2

SlackEX is currently based on the Slackware 14.2 operating system, but Arne Exton is always bringing you the latest GNU/Linux technologies and software releases. As such, SlackEX Build 160817 is the first of its kind to run the latest and recently released Linux 4.7.1 kernel, along with the Nvidia 367.35 proprietary graaphics driver for Nvidia GPUs. Of course, the most important change added in the SlackEX Build 160817 release is the replacement of the Slackware 14.1 repositories with those from Slackware Current, so you can always get the newst security and software updates. But Arne Exton continues to add applications that aren’t available in the Slackware repos.
