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%".

RE: The future of Slackware

Oh yes, I agree with you.
I appreciate the simplicity of the start / stop scripts.
At now I have create two distinct custom start and stop scripts where I put my own services and I have called these two scripts in Slackware system scripts.
Adding also support for keywords : PROVIDE, REQUIRE, BEFORE, KEYWORD (from NetBsd and FreeBsd) would be nice.
