Slacking with Slackware

Posted 12-01-2011 at 09:11 AM by ofaring (Debian, This That and the Other)
Updated 12-01-2011 at 09:14 AM by ofaring

Ok. I've used Debian for quite some time -- although I started with Slackware years back -- and it's been awhile since I attempted anything without a package manager!

I grabbed a copy of Slackware Disc 1 and installed a basic, console-only Slackware.

First snag...WiFi. I live in a busy neighbourhood full of students eager to grab "free" internet off a WEP-encrypted wireless router, so WPA is a must. Well, /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1.conf didn't seem very happy to play...

I was answering a question the other day about the difference between mid-range (AS/400)and mainframe systems. I touched on how the OS differed but then it occurred to me that Linux will run on everything from big iron to a Raspberry Pi! To the best of my knowledge, there is no other OS that will do that!
