Slackware, Slax Slackware is the oldest surviving Linux distribution out there. For those who believe that Slackware was the first Linux distribution I have news, because SLS was before Slackware, but that is another story. It is the most *NIX like distribution and has borrowed many of the things we can find in BSD *NIX. Here is a mini-review of their latest release, 9.0.

I'm surprised about the audigy 2 support - afaik there's no driver for that chip out yet. Could you please tell me the name of the memory module (via modprobe or a look into 'modules.conf')?

What is this 'modules.conf' file? I am trying to get my SBLive card to work. The Slackware FAQ says to enable the appropriate modprobe line in rc.modules, which I have done, but still no sound. I haven't looked into this too deeply yet though (just started playing with it last night).

Also, if anyone knows of any useful documentation to get TrueType fonts enabled on Slack 9, that would be spiffy ;)
