I want to learn Linux on a fast flexible distribution true to the Linux philosophy. My calling card is Slackware. You guys sure made that evident.
Well, three times I tried Slackware, and three times have failed. Once the installation would kill itself automatically half way through an install, the second time it would boot up and come back with numerous errors, and the most recent one reached the desktop; but without hardly any driver support.
Bound & determined by my interest in Linux, I will not give up. This time, I am going to install Slack to a 40 GB partition and keep my Ubuntu install on a 280 GB partition until everything gets going. Then I will shrink and resize as I see fit.
I already know I am going to have to get install instructions and drivers on Ubuntu, then mount it to Slack and install from there.
Anyways, if there is any advice, howtos, tips and tricks, opinions, recommendations, or links (other than the main site; been through that already) please post them. Even a little tip is appreciated. I really want to get Slack up and running
