Slackware, Slax My first experience with Slackware Linux came with version 9.1, after 4 years of using various versions of Red Hat and SUSE Linux. I disliked the general direction these distributions were moving in and didn't see their increasing focus on the "big end of town" as auguring well for either myself or clients of my small one-person IT consultancy business. I quickly became a Slackware convert and have since used it exclusively for all my server deployments. Check in for more and 15 screenshots from Slackware 10.

pkgsrc and slack
by D'Arcy on Thu 15th Jul 2004 19:16 UTC

A little OT, but I just tried something here. Using netbsd's pkgsrc with slackware. the thing works beautifully and now gives one access to the 4000 or so ports available in NetBSD, but in Linux instead. very sweet, now I can run slack, and have access to one of (if not the) best "package" manager out there. Give it a try!
