Lite gammal info iofs... 

"Linux users have access to both NPAPI and PPAPI versions of Flash Player.  However, for the last four years, the NPAPI version has been held at 11.2 and regularly updated with only security fixes while the PPAPI version (used in Chrome and Chromium based browsers), is in line with the standard Windows and Mac releases."

"Today we are updating the beta channel with Linux NPAPI Flash Player by moving it forward and in sync with the modern release branch (currently version 23).  We have done this significant change to improve security and provide additional mitigation to the Linux community."

För er som försöker installera AMD graphics driver och AMD Catalyst™på Slackware 14.2 och current kommer få problem.

Anledningen till detta är att AMD inte stöder kernel 4.x i dagsläget.
Om det och när det blir vet ingen i dagsläget.

Ända lösningen så långt är att använda ATI opensource drivers. D.v.s installera xf86-video-ati-7.7.0-x86_64-1.txz alternativt xf86-video-amdgpu-1.1.0-x86_64-1.txz beroende på vilket radeon grafikkort du använder i slackware 14.2 eller slackware current.

Konfigurera X att använda korrekt drivrutin och önskade parametrar.

14.2 är äntligen här!

"Yes, it is that time again (finally)!
Following a long period of planning, development,
and testing, the Slackware Linux Project
is proud to announce the latest stable release
of the longest running distribution of
the Linux operating system, Slackware version 14.2!"
Read more...
"We are sure you'll enjoy the many improvements.  We've done our best 
to bring the latest technology to Slackware while still maintaining the 
stability and security that you have come to expect.  Slackware is well 
known for its simplicity and the fact that we try to bring software to 
you in the condition that the authors intended.
Slackware 14.2 brings many updates and enhancements, among which 
you'll find two of the most advanced desktop environments available 
today: Xfce 4.12.1, a fast and lightweight but visually appealing and 
easy to use desktop environment, and KDE 4.14.21 (KDE 4.14.3 with
kdelibs-4.14.21) a stable release of the 4.14.x series of the award-
winning KDE desktop environment.  These desktops utilize eudev, udisks,
and udisks2, and many of the specifications from freedesktop.org which
allow the system administrator to grant use of various hardware devices
according to users' group membership so that they will be able to use
items such as USB flash sticks, USB cameras that appear like USB storage,
portable hard drives, CD and DVD media, MP3 players, and more, all
without requiring sudo, the mount or umount command.  Just plug and play.
Slackware's desktop should be suitable for any level of Linux experience.
Slackware uses the 4.4.14 kernel bringing you advanced performance 
features such as journaling filesystems, SCSI and ATA RAID volume 
support, SATA support, Software RAID, LVM (the Logical Volume Manager), 
and encrypted filesystems.  Kernel support for X DRI (the Direct 
Rendering Interface) brings high-speed hardware accelerated 3D graphics 
to Linux.
There are two kinds of kernels in Slackware.  First there are the 
huge kernels, which contain support for just about every driver in the 
Linux kernel. These are primarily intended to be used for installation, 
but there's no real reason that you couldn't continue to run them after 
you have installed.  The other type of kernel is the generic kernel, in 
which nearly every driver is built as a module.  To use a generic kernel 
you'll need to build an initrd to load your filesystem module and 
possibly your drive controller or other drivers needed at boot time, 
configure LILO to load the initrd at boot, and reinstall LILO.  See the 
docs in /boot after installing for more information.  Slackware's Linux 
kernels come in both SMP and non-SMP types now.  The SMP kernel supports 
multiple processors, multi-core CPUs, HyperThreading, and about every 
other optimization available.  In our own testing this kernel has proven 
to be fast, stable, and reliable.  We recommend using the SMP kernel 
even on single processor machines if it will run on them.  Note that on
x86_64 (64-bit), all the kernels are SMP capable."

"Fri Apr 15 20:37:37 UTC 2016
Finally got some fixes we were waiting for in this new kernel.
It's been almost a month since 14.2rc1 so we'll call this Slackware
14.2 release candidate 2. Almost there. Get in any last-minute
bug reports quickly. :-) "
