Slackware, Slax "I have very mixed feelings about this release of Slackware. I do not think that the underlying philosophy of Slackware is obsolete. The concept of a system that can be configured and molded to the n'th degree is still in my opinion very much a good idea. However, this release of Slackware is not without its problems in execution." Read the review here.

odd bug
by D'Arcy on Mon 9th May 2005 22:14 UTC

on slack 10.1 I noticed something strange that popped up on the two (very different) machines I installed it on. After I finished installing and rebooted, I could not log in. No keyboard response, or mouse for that matter. Turns out the 'solution' was to swap the usb ports that the mouse and keyboard were plugged in. (Once I got X started up, I also noticed the the mouse speed was all out of wack.) Doing that once, though odd, is one thing, having to do it most times I reboot, that just sucks. I've only seen that in slackware 10.1 from what I can recall, and have played around with lots-o-distros.
