The Slax distribution, a live operating system based on Debian, was recently updated to version 9.6.0. The new version was then quickly replaced by a series of minor updates over the course of the week, concluding with Slax 9.6.3. The project's leader, Tomáš Matějíček, explained the reason for the series of minor updates: "While I was repackaging ISO for the 64-bit version of Slax 9.6.1, I used Midnight Commander to extract the ISO contents. Unfortunately I forgot that there is a bug in Midnight Commander and it does not see empty directories. For that reason, the Slax 9.6.2 ISO file did not contain a /slax/changes directory, which is needed for storing persistent changes. You can fix that yourself easily by simply creating that directory. I've already pushed out version 9.6.3, which fixes this."
