Well there's your problem right there. Personally I find it much easier to type with my fingers than my forehead. If you really must use your head, I'd suggest getting your nose structurally reinforced and try that.......

You've misunderstood, I don't type with my forehead, I react to the repeated dependacy hangups with my forehead.

Seriously thouh, slackware seems like a good system but getting past dependancy issues can be quite frustrating, there's doesn't seem to be anything as slick as gentoos "emerge" or debian/ubuntu's "apt-get" command for slackware.

That's because most Slackware users view automated dependency resolution as an abomination so vile, horrible and contrary to the laws of man and nature that the innermost circles of Hell are too good for it. Just look at Swaret. Most long-time Slackware users would make George Carlin blush when they describe it.

Well.... maybe I cheated abit, installed both on a dedicated server using the hosters control panel. Once setup i found gentoo far easier to use and get things done with, becaus trying to install anything on slackware just made it complain about not having this and not having that.

I'm building a second computer at home soon though, which means I'll be able to try and install gentoo personally. Should be fun.

Good luck with the Gentoo.
I'm going to fit a 2nd HDD. Only got about 40GB at present (2/3 XP, 1/3 Slackware). Get another nice big one, install (for variety) possibly: Ubuntu, Gentoo, FreeBSD, LFS, and space for trying out other distros. Should keep me occupied for a bit.
