New Slax is Comming !

Hi, i used slax a long time ago and i´m pretty happy to see it updated. For me it is a bit too "basic", i don´t wont to fiddle around wifi and so on. apt-get may be a nice approach, but i prefer the module approach that porteus (and the old slax) uses. I can go back to a "clean" install with all app...

nss-until error

Hi, thanks for the hint. After manually editing the config for the salix repo "usm -u all" just went through the updates and told me everything is fine.
