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.

RE: pkgsrc and slack

Hrm, running into some snags here. overall runs nice, but not as cleanly as you'd get in netbsd itself. oh well, it's still worth checking out. what would be probably more sane is to try it in a more full install of slackware, rather than this rather bare boned one I tried it on.
