Once again, if it isn't such a big deal, then please go ahead and tell us how to do it. The scripts we use to create ours isos are here: https://github.com/gapan/iso-creation

The only real difference is that you are using elilo to boot the installation busybox instead of lilo. That should means that, apart from some strange bios firmware configurations, or particular tweeks of the installation scripts (elilo/lilo step), no testing is required (well, actually all the testing required has already been done by the slackware team). And you can use a virtual machine to check if it works.
You are assuming that I have hardware that can virtualize 64bit systems. I don't.

In any case, the scripts are there. If you really mean it, then you are welcome to go ahead and provide patches.

i have installed 32bit version, and all works fine so far.
just a little thing: in gslapt, in the summary menu, in italian language, there is: PACCHETTI ESCLUSSI, the right translation is PACCHETTI ESCLUSI.
That was wrong also in past version.
Thank you for your work.
A lazy slacker.

You could have done something even better. Fix the translation in transifex: https://www.transifex.com/projects/p/slapt-get/

Running Beta on a HP Pavillion AMD quad core Phenom II, Radeon 4250, no problems so far,I have not switched to the Radeon driver yet.
Installation and setup was fine.

RC1 is ready: http://forum.salixos.org/viewtopic.php? ... 107#p33087

Any beta1 users please read the announcement. There are some changes that you should probably do if you want to keep the system you installed with the beta, although it should be preferable for testing's sake to install the RC1.
