This makes me feel like such a newb (probably because I am).
I finally have my slack box set up just right, as the perfect desktop. Got my modem, new graphics card, UPS, scanner, printer, new sound card, all set up and it wasn't easy. But it was worth it, and I'd do it again.
My problem is, I installed most stuff without using the package manager (e.g. make config, make, make install). So lots of things I've installed are not in the package database
I can live with that, as long as it will not cause future problems when I got to remove or add other packages using the package manager. Do any of you think I need to re-install everything in order to update the package database, or can I just go ahead and use the package manager without any problems from now on?
