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.

>Were you sure ESD was running?

What do you think? I was running GNome with all sounds ON.
And yes, permissions were just fine.

>Finally, did you know that GNOME 2.4 includes ALSA Mixer Control in the Multimedia menu?

Argh! Of course!

People, please stop replying on this issue and giving me such advices, I even discussed the problem with Patrick from Slackware. Rest assured, we did our homework.
