Slackware, Slax "Slackware 14.0 brings many updates and enhancements, among which you'll find two of the most advanced desktop environments available today: Xfce 4.10.0, a fast and lightweight but visually appealing and easy to use desktop environment, and KDE 4.8.5, a recent stable release of the 4.8.x series of the award-winning KDE desktop environment. [...] Slackware uses the 3.2.29 kernel bringing you advanced performance features such as journaling filesystems, SCSI and ATA RAID volume support, SATA support, Software RAID, LVM (the Logical Volume Manager), and encrypted filesystems. Kernel support for X DRI (the Direct Rendering Interface) brings high-speed hardware accelerated 3D graphics to Linux."

My experience is that Slackware doesn't check dependencies and it's with Slackware I've had the least problems with them.

A number I've times I've been bugged by a Linux system not wanting to install X, because it needs Y and Y won't get installed or doesn't even exist.

If you really want to be in control of your system Slackware is one of the better choices.
