Detailed 4-part article about Slackware in the french press


Hi,

I just finished publishing a series of four detailed articles for a french print magazine. Here's the link to the first article of the series, which is a general presentation of Slackware, background and history, who should use it (and who shouldn't), etc.

http://www.microlinux.fr/download/slackware.pdf

The subsequent three articles go into quite some detail about configuration questions, explaining pkgtools and slackpkg, introducing SlackBuilds and tools like sbopkg, configuring sound and X11... If you're interested, I can scan them also and post them here.

Cheers from the sunny South of France.

I'd say for kiki the language is not foreign at all. typical biased view of the anglo-american world.

I so wish i could be in the south of france now

Thank you.
It's remembered me a technical article about the slackware's installation and configuration in linux pratique or linux magazine.
I remember that pages are brown. You write it too, isn't it ?

Yeah, I wrote that one too. It was a two-part series about Slackware 10.2, back in 2005. And for the record, since the question did arise in an earlier reply: I'm Austrian, and my first language is german. I've been living in France since 1991, and so French has become the main language I use in everyday life (including writing articles and books).

Thanks for the flowers, man. Working as a teacher as well as a trainer for many years helps getting a sense of explaining things. Though I'm aware I have to stay on my guards. Some of my fellow teachers end up talking to anyone like they were some mentally challenged five-year-olds.

I congratulate you. Getting published is a compliment and an accomplishment.

I might even look at it, just to stretch my mind, though I am many years past my execrable high school French (when I got to college and took the required two years of a foreign language, my Freshman French professor said upon first hearing me, "Oh, you graduated from ----------- High School." Apparently my high school French teacher was notorious for teaching the worst French accent on the east coast of the USA).

Kiki,

Thanks for the articles. Sadly, I don't read French. I would use babelfish.altavista.com to translate, but I can't copy and paste, since the pdf is an image. Are your articles available online?

-Joe
