Second, EVERY good security person that I know, would rather install something themselves from source with a watchful eye than let emerge or RPM, or swaret, or even installpkg handle it.

It is no major accomplishment to get selinux, grsecurity, and their friends installed on slackware.


Agreed. Any admin worth his paycheck will handle security patches personally rather than trusting pre-built packages.
