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%".

Any problems with any distro Just ask a slackware user. No I am not kidding ! If Mr Slackware is complaining about Gnome Something is WRONG! I also miss the useability of seemingly ancient but useable Gnome apps. I usually use Icewm or Kde. I cannot use Gnome After 2.6 it locks all the time? Without Dropline Gnome I would not have bothered to learn the Mysteries of Gnome. I want a clear precise repeatable action not a core dump.
