Slackbuilds are great

I had never taken much notice of them previously but as I am going through the process of installing Slackware on a laptop and, for the first time, using for software I must say a word of appreciation for the resource.

I was particularly pleased to find my favourite file manager, worker listed.

And if anyone is reading, I think that there is something wrong with the link for the ndiswrapper source. I tried downloading it twice through the link; the md5sum was wrong and the script did not run. No problem as it was easy to find the source with the address provided.

I agree that SlackBuilds are indeed a great thing for Slackware. I encourage you to look at their HowTos on the site and build some of your own scripts for submission.

If you ever have a problem with any of the links or scripts please report it. You might also consider joining the mailing group.
