Are you freaking kidding me? Did you READ this thread!? There have been very knowledgeable and helpful replies to your somewhat flaming original post. Every 'problem' has been answered with a solution. And you have the NERVE to imply that Slackware users, who are helping you (a very ungrateful person) using their own time and getting nothing in return, always tell you to go use another distro?
It appears that a different distribution WOULD BE BETTER FOR YOU. This is NOT saying that you *can't* setup Slackware, or implying that you are stupid or incompetent -- it appears that you DO NOT WANT to deal with these 'problems' (ie you do not want to have to read at all to setup your system). There is nothing wrong with this.
It just means that Slackware is probably NOT the distro for you. I don't understand why you are getting so offended. We gave you a multitude of help for your problems, DESPITE YOU BEING UNWILLING TO TRY THEM. Since you seemed so unmoving and since it seemed that Slackware really isn't setup the way you like it, it was suggested that you try another distro. HOW IS THIS RUDE?
If you want to stick with Slackware, all of your problems have been answered already. And if you have more problems, we'll be happy to help you with those. However, if you don't want to try and fix these, go to another distro. There is nothing wrong with that, and you seem to just want to be right instead of happy.
Here's the thing. Most Slackware users here don't want Slackware to change much.
You do. Therefore, try another distro. All of the problems you had are very simple things once you know what you're doing, and it still takes me less time to setup a Slackware box than any other distro or OS. Therefore, I am *happy* with Slackware, and if it changed to a more hand-holding setup/configuration like some of the other distros, I would be *unhappy* because it would drag out the install/configuration process and assume I don't know what I'm doing.
Yes, Slackware has a steep learning curve, and yes, a lot has changed since 10.1. However, I
think the extra time it takes to read and learn Slackware is worth it. If you do not
, then try another distro.
No one is trying to insult you here. Why can't you get that through your head? (OK, maybe one insult)
