Slackware, Slax For almost a week now, I've been using Slackware 9.1 (RC-1 released today), and I am having a blast. Slackware doesn't have more than 6-8% of the Linux market these days, but it used to be one of the most-used distros back in the day. Today, many think of Slackware as a true classic, a thought that is often accompanied by a feeling that Slackware is not a user-friendly or an uber-modern Linux distribution. There is some truth in that statement, but there is always the big "But". Read on for our very positive experience with Slackware 9.1-pre. Update: In less than 24 hours since the RC-1, Slackware 9.1 RC-2 is out.

>In short, configure XMMS to use ESD

It did not work with ESD, it was producing no sound. As I wrote in the article, I tried ALL combinations, it just doesn't work with anything else other than ALSA or OSS (and in both cases won't release the device).

Right now I can not go test it anymore, as I said I installed a Yamaha PCI card and I am all fine.
