This is a semi-random collection of posts on nearly all things Slackware and Linux-related -- at least as I see it.

Slackware “Clean Upgrade” (with pre- and post-installation tasks)

Slackware is perfectly usable from a fresh (full) installation with only two essential tasks to perform after the installation is complete:
  1. creating an initial RAM disk (using mkinitrd) so that one boots to the generic kernel, and
  2. creating at least one non-root user (using adduser).

Everything else — installing additional software, setting up e-mail, etcetera — is really personalizing and/or customizing to suit one’s own tastes and needs....
