Slackware 9.1
by zx81 on Mon 12th Apr 2004 15:07 UTC

I am long-time Slack user having started with 3.5 and installed everything inbetween.. My greatest satisfaction has been 8.1 which i have installed on 3 of my pcs.. I have tried Fedora, RH, Suse, Knoppix, Mandrake.. and only Knoppix is as easy to get going on my hardwares as Slackware.. But I cannot get GPSK31 to install on 9.0 or 9.1.. It has always compiled effortlessly on earlier versions.. AND the gtk fonts are way too small on mozilla and gaim. And cups doesnt work for me.. Perhaps I have a learning problem, but 8.1 just works better. My favorite Linux is 1. Slackware 8.1 and 2. Harddrive installed Knoppix.
