Slackware, Slax I was quite excited about the release of Slackware 10.1, the same way I was excited about 10.0 and versions before that. As a self confessed 'Linux Desktop Dabbler', to date, I've found Slackware my favourite Linux flavour to Dabble with.

GNOME packages in Linux Slackware 10.x
by LiNue on Fri 18th Feb 2005 10:52 UTC

If you want more recent GNOME packages for Linux Slackware 10.0, you can try these ones :

http://antesis.freecontrib.org/mirrors/slack-fr.org/packages/slackw...

But as Linux Slackware 10.0 is unmaintained, these packages for Linux Slackware 10.0 are unmaintained yet. I would recommand you to upgrade to Linux Slackware 10.1 and to try these latest GNOME packages for Linux Slackware 10.1 :

http://linuce.free.fr/slackware/10.1/gnome-2.8.2+/

Note that both packages sets are built for a 2.4.x Linux kernel and ALSA sound system as provided with Linux Slackware 10.x. If you are running a 2.6.x Linux kernel, you would better try Dropline GNOME (at least for Linux Slackware 10.0 as Linux Slackware 10.1 is not supported by Dropline GNOME yet).

There is also GSB (Gnome SlackBuild) and G-Ware, but they seem to provide GNOME packages only for a 2.6.x Linux kernel:

- G-Ware : http://www.gware.org/
