Wolvix linux – A linux distro based on Slackware with a graphic installation mode

Wolvix is a desktop oriented GNU/Linux distribution based on Slackware. It features the Xfce desktop environment and a comprehensive selection of development, graphics, multimedia, network and office applications.

Using Wolvix does not require more than basic computer skills, but installing and administering the system might require more knowledge than some of the other GNU/Linux distributions. Much like Slackware, Wolvix sometimes requires you to roll up your sleves and get your hands dirty. So if the thought of using the command line and reading documentation scares you, you might be better off using another distribution.

Wolvix can be dowloaded for free from one of several locations. If you prefer Bittorrent you can download Wolvix from LinuxTracker. Or if you prefer http/ftp downloads you can get Wolvix from one of the mirrors bellow :

Here are the Wolvix download locations:
