|   |                    client, which came in just a bit too late to be
|   |                    tested for inclusion in the main tree.
|   |                    Also included are config files for more recent
|   |                    branches of the Linux kernel.
|   |                    Finally, there are newer versions of libdrm and
|   |                    the X video drivers nouveau, ati, and intel.
|   |                    These alternate drivers require the libdrm
|   |                    update, so be sure to install that if you try
|   |                    them.  These weren't included in the main tree
|   |                    because Mesa is not yet compile-ready for this
|   |                    version of libdrm.
|   |
|   `--- source/         This directory contains source code for the 
|                        packages in testing.
`-- usb-and-pxe-installers  These are alternate installers useful
    |                       for large-scale Linux deployment or if
    |                       your machine can boot PXE and/or USB but
    |                       not an optical disc.  For PXE, the initrd.img
    |                       file in isolinux/ is also required.
    |-- pxelinux.cfg_default
    `-- usbboot.img       The Slackware installer for bootable USB flash.
    `-- usbimg2disk.sh    Script to make a partitioned USB flash installer
                          from usbboot.img.
