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%".

Lazy anyone?

Am i the only one who'se not lazy enough to build my own gnome in slackware? or heck if im lazy, get pre compiled packages from say, linuxpackages.net ?

So what if gnome was out, it doesn't mean you CANT use it on slackware at all.. it just means you're going to share a bit of the effort it takes to set it up.
