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.

How does wine and Codeweavers products work with Slackware 9?

Or are the users SOL with this distrubtion also? I am very disappointed with Redhat and Mandrake for using the glibc 2.3.x, as it breaks more then just wine. The gentoo website has a grow list of software that is broken by glibc 2.3.x

If someone who was installed Slackware 9 and Codeweavers' Xoffice and Xplugin and knows that it works. Then I will move delete Mandrake 9.1 and install Slackware, instead of Mandrake 9.0.
