Hi!
All said and done, once you have used Slackware, it is not likely that you will think of trying any other distro. Even if you try, you will most certainly come back to Slackware. It is addictive because the control it gives you.

Your “Info” claims that Slackware’s Desktop is “None” This is incorrect. During installation you can choose between KDE, XFCE, Fluxbox, Blackbox, WindowMaker, Fvwm2, or Tab WM.

@Truthfatal: of course it was meant as “none as default”, not “none at all”. Anyway, I removed the entry since it may have been confusing.

By the way, stay tuned since a new, way more comprehensive Slackware description will be available soon.

“No good package management tools, no dependency resolving in pkgtool”

What?! Slackware has lots of good package management tools. Ever heard of swaret, slackpkg, or slapt-get? I’m also of the opinion that “no dependency resolving” is a good thing.

hiredgoon write “I’m also of the opinion that “no dependency resolving” is a good thing.”

I completely agree! This way, you’ll be able to actually know what are the dependencies yourself and be able to learn from it. It’s a good thing to really force yourself to ready manuals, forums.. etc — which is a MUST attitude for every Linux geeks. Right?

Slackware teaches you how to use *Linux* — not how to use a more advanced, but less universal tool-set, that is distro-specific.

I recommend *buntu for people who “Just want Linux”, and Slackware to everyone else.

I agree, Slackware teaches you how to use Linux. It’s my favorite distro since ’95 (slackware 0.9something ;)
Tried many (and I mean MANY!) other Linuxes in that time, and when frustrated, return to Slack.
My school server is Slackware 8 – think is’t time to upgrade? :)

Greetings -

As a dedicated slackware user since the first cd release. It is my humble opinion, that cutting ones teeth on slack, will enable a person an advantage with other *nix operating systems in the future. If a person just needs an os to cruise the net, send – receive virii, er e-mail, microsoft windows is the os to use. Boot it up in the morn and it will run for hours.

Anyway, sorry to flame uncle bill. Slack will allow you to compile the specific drivers for your particular machine, without having drivers for every periphial in the world. N’ertheless, slack is a solid os if you need stability.

Peace.

Although I’m using linux for many years now (you name a distro and I tried it), I did install Slackware just 2 years ago.

I never gave Slackware a change before, because of the myth -you read on the net- that it is hard to handle.
In my opinion, any linux user with 1 year experiance can handle Slackware.

What can you expect when you install Slackware? You’ll get a honest and stable parner! Not a pretty one (only 850 packages) but very reliable.

If you want to life dangerous, choose a linux version with a rpm package management system. By deleting one package, you can destroy your whole installation!

I love Slackware, maybe because i am a simple guy.

This is an excellent “all in one Slack site”. I just want to add another resource for the Slack users: GNU/QTGZManager – Your GUI to pkgtools. It’s a project I am working on since last year – a Qt4 interface to pkgtools, meant for organizing/managing your package collection. Now it’s pretty mature, in Beta3. It really worths a chance. Thank you!

The Perfect Desktop — Slackware-12.0
Howtoforge now have as part of their “Perfect Desktop” series, an in depth tutorial on how to set up a Slackware-12.0 desktop. The tutorial starts with installing/configuring the operating system and covers the many ways of installing various software. Even though this 12 page tutorial is targeted at those new to Slackware or with limited Linux experience, it is very thorough and may well teach even the most seasoned Slacker a new trick or two.

Hello,

I’m wanting to get set up with Slackware, with emphasis on the following:

Best hardware (motherboard, case, printer, scanners, monitors, etc) to get with installing Slackware in mind – any good articles?

Setting up RAID 1 – any good articles?

Setting up VirtualBox (to run Quickbooks & Visual FoxPro) – any good articles?

Setting up Samba (to interact with XP computers) – any good articles?

Thanks, Charles
