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%".

Gnome has got to be the most under documented platform. I especially like the undocumented environment variables you have to set before your session, to get Gnome-vfs going (maybe only in development versions, but still undocumented). They should stop all development and get some decent documentation for developers (and maybe users), instead of those half-baked release-notes. (I dont expect anything until Novell/RedHat wants them to).
