    Not really, 4.0 was 2.2 kernel (2.2.6, to be exact).
    And all 3.x releases still only used the 2.0 kernel (2.0.35 for 3.6).
    The "major" jump for 4.0 was the first - experimental - usage of
    glibc2 (although the main use was still with libc.so.5 aka glibc1).

    I think that 7.0 was the first release with full glibc2
    support, but it also still used 2.2 kernels, the 2.4 (.5)
    kernel didn't come untill Slackware 8.0.
    So in _your_ numbering 8.0 would have been 5.0 and
    12.0 would then be 6.0, which means we now would be at
    release 6.1

    I've not got round to clearing out those old disks, I should have looked.

    In fact, in front of me now, Slackware 3.4, Includes XFree86 3.3.1, Includes
    kernel version 2.0.30.

    "Official Slackware Linux requires 4-8 MB of memory and 12 MB of hard
    disk. - though that was minimal install without X, and dev tools!

    Except 3.0 which had kernel 1.2.13 as default kernel. If I remember right
    there was also some 1.3 experimental kernel included as an option.
