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.

I'm installed my slack 9.0 cd and currently doing a 'swaret --upgrade -' to get the newest (hope it'll work, it's my first attempt to use slack:). I'd like to ask if anybody knows a working solution for getting Bluecurve things (everything if possible, from gtk/gtk2/qt engines+themes to icons) work under slack? Either slack tgz's or pure tarballs would be nice. Unfortunatelly i couldn't get them from redhat's packages, that was complicated for me. Seems now it's the only thing i miss from here ;)

thx, hirisov
