Slackware, Slax On a recent IRC discussion Pat discussed Slackware's future and the restructuring that will happen for Slackware 11. Regarding the removal of Gnome from Slackware, he said: "GNOME is not easy to build into packages, lacks decent documentation to build, and requires many undocumented system changes for things to work 100%".

I should also mention that for the 2.8.2 release, we tried to stay as close to what Todd gave us to begin with as possible.

This development has given us something to think about, and we may shake things up more in 2.8.3 2.10 than we were originally planning to.
