Eventhough it’s only the second Slackware installation I did. 2004-08-12 8:08 am I have only one problem with 10.The modem.I don’t know what was changed but cannot install anymore the drivers for my softmodem.I mean,they install,no problem,configuration OK but cannot find the modem.Sigh. 2004-08-12 8:14 am The Babelfish translation isn’t bad. I don’t know if the parser here will eat the url, but here you go; http://babelfish.altavista.com/babelfish/trurl_pagecontent?url=http… 2004-08-12 8:15 am Hey Bud, I had a similar problem with my software modem. A good source for a driver is http://linmodems.org check that out. I have an HSP MicroModem, and it works nice. To find out what you have, run “lspci” as root. 2004-08-12 8:44 am I had been running Slack 10 on a test machine for a couple of weeks, when I decided to replace my older Linux installation on my notebook with Slack. The notebook is an older HP Pavilion N-3190 (Celeron 466, 256 MB RAM), and the install went flawlessly. I now have Slack 10 running Xfce 4, which is a mighty fine and speedy combination for an older notebook. It appears that all the hardware was found and setup fine, including my Linksys PCMCIA wireless network card. Great job, and my hats off to Patrick and everybody else that helped bring out Slackware 10! 2004-08-12 8:50 am Thanks Steve,I will check that again.One of the weird things happened when I wanted to start ppp. I was assuming that everything is good configured and give it a go.What happened next is that all the leds on my keyboard started flashing,all system was blocked,nothing worked,had to do a cold reboot. 2004-08-12 8:55 am I’m connected to the internet through a dhcp router. Can I do a network installation of sl10 by floppies, such as FreeBSD ? (freebsd needs two floppies). The reason is that I don’t have a cd burner…. Thanks! 2004-08-12 12:06 pm I do not care what language a site is in. However it would be nice if a comment was made in the link as to what language was used if the linked to site is not in English. I speak English, passable German, and a little French. However for sites in other languages I rely on Babelfish for, so it saves me some time if I know in advance I am going to need to use Babelfish. 2004-08-12 12:50 pm — “Because we don’t understand non-english language.” We? You. 2004-08-12 12:52 pm — “I cannot believe that in this day and age there are still people who persist in speaking a language other than American. This is not only selfish, but rude. How exactly do they expect to be understood? I think sites like OSNews should ban non-American articles until these people learn. After all – most terrorists do not speak American. Makes ya think, don’t it?” LOL!! Please don’t mod that down! Its hilarious! HAHAHAHAHAHA! 2004-08-12 12:53 pm no matter what language you speak/read/write Slackware-10 is the tops in Linux… i offer many thanks & a Laurel & Harty handshake to Linus and Patrick for making this all possible 2004-08-12 12:56 pm I believe everyone understands that Matt’s comment was nothing more than sarcasm.At least it looks like that to me. 2004-08-12 1:03 pm Eugina, Just a suggestion: If the article is non-English, please say so in the tile such as “Installation step by step of Slackware 10.0 – in French/Spanish/Chinese/WhateverTheLanguageMightBe” That way people know what to expect. BTW, has anyone noticed the screenshots are in English? A little unusual but then again, many a time people in other parts of the world can speak more than one language. Me for instant. English is my second language. 2004-08-12 1:15 pm Well, Akbar, now you know how most of the rest of the world feels. Yes, this site is obviously an English-language site. Judging, however, from many of the posts, though, English is not the first language of a many posters. That’s good. 2004-08-12 1:25 pm Putz….Sorry, but the documentation is very,very,very good, Estudem mais um pouco e aprendam um pouco de cada lingua estrangeira… Pow ou então usem um tradutor… Pense que o Mundo Linux não e feito so para a lingua inglesa.. 2004-08-12 1:42 pm Olá a todos, Todos temos direitos de ir e vir. Se não aceitarem documentos em outros idiomas a não ser o inglês, se forem ignorantes o suficiente para isso, simplesmente removam do site. Mas podem ter certeza que outro site irá aceitar a documentação. E os ignorantes que não tiverem a mentalidade de aprender outro idioma (ou mesmo usar um tradutor)serão os que sairão perdendo. Desde já agradeço a atenção. For those who dont understand other languages and for some stupid racists…the same text in english Hi everyone, I would like to tell that everybody has ther right to speak, to write to learn any kind of language desired. A person who discriminates another one is a racist. If this site does not accept a document in a foreign languge, than just remove it, that simple. But I´m sure that other friendly sites will accept it. And those thugs who think that english is the only language in the world and do not have the will to learn another language, I have nothing else to say than stupidity. One more thing, knowledge brings wisdom. Thank you 2004-08-12 2:04 pm Hey Fernando… Ever heard of parody? 2004-08-12 2:12 pm Yeah… And you….ever heard about respect? 2004-08-12 2:14 pm in reply to : ” I cannot believe that in this day and age there are still people who persist in speaking a language other than American” Don’t think that USA are world leader… The language is not “American” it is “English” ??? Why refering always on american ? Why always centralised each thing to the more pratically useless in the mind of america !! We are a world with different culture, different language ! There is only one race, Human ! We should be able to live all together !, The Hitler style of action is not acceptable : I MEAN IT IS BAD TO SAY : WE SHOULD ONLY ACCEPT ENGLISH AND BAN OTHER LANGUAGE Go to hell fucking american tought ! 2004-08-12 2:16 pm Oupss mistake on my previous sentense, sorry i am not english ! Why always centralize each thing to the more pratically USEFULL in the mind of america !! We are a world with different culture, different language ! There is only one race, Human ! 2004-08-12 2:20 pm “Hi everyone, I would like to tell that everybody has ther right to speak, to write to learn any kind of language desired.

I was trying to poke fun at just the kind of ignorance you object to. Sorry for the confusion. 2004-08-12 2:25 pm Ok matt no offenses taken It was a helluva confusion, dont you think? 2004-08-12 2:27 pm I always enjoy visiting computer related sites in various languages. I think it is good for English speaking Linux users to get a feel for how truly universal Linux is. Check out how many worldwide Slackware sites are linked here: http://distrowatch.serve-you.net/table.php?distribution=slackware The beauty of Linux is that it is being embraced by all the people of the world. And it brings opportunity to so many. I always tell people that is what excites me most about the spread of Linux. I personally don’t care if my friends or family in the USA switch to linux. But I get very excited about a public library in the Congo using Linux. Just my way of seeing things… happyg 2004-08-12 3:16 pm Personally, I suffer from the English Disease of mono-linguistics. I am ashamed of this, but have tried, to no avail, on many occaisions to learn a second tongue. All that is needed to stop this barrage of racism (YES, calling for someone to stop using their native language in preference to your own, on the grounds that you won’t learn thiers, IS racism) is a note saying “Site in Portugese, BabelFish translation available” next to the link. Just a suggestion, not a criticism. Bore da. 2004-08-12 3:27 pm I’m not sure the word ‘racism’ is really applicable, I think it’s more like linguisticism (and, yes, I just invented that word). I find it amusing that folk can object to links here written in other languages – one need only ask “Ah, so where do you think Linus himself is from? I’ll give you a clue – it ain’t Detroit.” The truth is that Linux is even bigger in the rest of the World than it is in the US – even more reason to not expect it all to be in ‘American’. 🙂 2004-08-12 4:07 pm I find that the install process is not that complicated, specially if you’ve already set up the partitions with other programs. However, setting up X and things like that drive me mad. That’s where I think there’s still work to be done. 2004-08-12 4:13 pm It’s not racist but proper etiquette when a person recommends a site only post articles in the language commonly used for that particular site. I speak both English and French but understand if I post an article for a French site then I will ensure it’s written in French. I would not link or post a French article on OSNews which is an English site since this is considered unprofessional. This is just as bad as people signing up on an English forum then wondering why no one responds to their posts that are written not in English but another language. Eugenia should realize this before allowing an article which is not written in English to be posted/linked. 2004-08-12 4:36 pm …nå snakker vi alle på våre morsmål 🙂 Det kommer sikkert til å funke såååå bra! Det er virkelig blitt trendy å hate USA gitt… 2004-08-12 5:50 pm Alguêm deseja traduzir para inglês? desires to translate into English? 2004-08-12 5:59 pm I’m Portuguese. I understand English, French, Italian and Spanish. And it’s good to see an article in my language, altough it’s from a brazilian site. I agree with the fact that the summary of the article should contain a warning about the language. But because it’s not in the same as OSNews.com, that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be here. After all, the world doesn’t revolve around US or UK. And judging from the posts, I suppose there are many of us who aren’t American or English. This just comes to prove that Linux is indeed universal. It’s a good thing, not bad! Concerning the content of the article: it’s well written, but it doesn’t help me very much. The “easy” part of Slackware is the installation. How come there aren’t any guides that teaches us how to configure things like the graphical mode, soundcard, etc.? That would be helpful. 2004-08-12 6:27 pm A slackware install guide in english: http://www.bitbenderforums.com/vb22/showthread.php?postid=311808 It would kind of make sence to mention what language the guide is in before posting it. If you post in english on a website where most stuff is writen in english people will assume the guides in english. 2004-08-12 6:31 pm If you don’t like English, as some of the other posters, don’t use our American made OS, Linux.:) Linux should bring us together. 2004-08-12 9:42 pm How come there aren’t any guides that teaches us how to configure things like the graphical mode, soundcard, etc.? That would be helpful. You might check out http://www.insyte.uni.cc/ I have not checked it out too much but from what I have seen it is pretty nice. 2004-08-12 9:53 pm Here http://shilo.is-a-geek.com/slack/ And Here http://members.cox.net/laitcg/new/intro.html 2004-08-12 10:03 pm El autor es un americano, de Brasil pués. También hay americanos de Perú, Columbia, Ecuador, Guatemala, México, Estados Unidos, Canada entre otros. Que la mayoría de los contenidos están en Inglés sí es un problema para muchos americanos. Estoy muy felíz con los contenidos de Brasil porque es simular al castellano. Falta material en Kichwa, Quechua, Maya etc etc. Alguién tiene ideas para una comunicación universal: sólo imagenes? Esperanto? O conquistar el mundo? PS: Linus es de Finlandia. SuSE es de Alemania. Mandrake es de Francia. Las pantallas de instalación de Slackware están en inglés porque así es como Slackware lo hace. 2004-08-13 7:44 am oww boy! isn’t it fun to read the moderated down section? i always read it in all articles that interests me.
