I used Red Hat before for 3 years and turn to Slackware last year because the version of rpm is not up-to-date and the support of "Red Hat" was terminated.Anyway,back to the problem.I want to set up LAMP on Slackware like everyone does.However,I am thinking whether I should compile them myself or get the package from linuxpackages.net and manage by pkgtool.
It is quite easy for me to compile AMP on Linux as I follow the tutorial.But with update software in mind,I doubt that is it very difficult to update them if compare with pkgtool?Yeah,if I use pkgtool to manage them,how about the compilation parameters?Like PDF support,graphic support and link with my existing MySQL.
Please explain these doubts from me because I used RPM very often before.
My experience on Slackware is very short.
Thanks a lot.
