Slackware rules! Just installed 14.1 after a brief and lamentable flirtation with other distros which will go unnamed to avoid flamewars. It was an exciting fling for little while, but luckily 14.1 came out in the nick of time after two weeks with more software crashes and installation hassles than I've ever seen running Slackware for the last 10 years (since 9.1!). The brand new Slackware has been solid for me so far! Thanks Pat and everyone else who has contributed!

Yep, seems the days of 40x speed CDROMS have given way to the days of 4x speed DVDRWs, so its 10x slower. I guess that's progress for you.

Well done!

I started with Slackware 13.37, then switched to 14.0... and now 14.1 is here, up and running, with on top my favorite pieces of software, picked from first-hand sources. Thank you guys for promoting user's freedom to the highest degree!

Happy Slacking!
I'd like to help with the seeding (I have 'unlimited' up/down loading from midnight to 5AM my time), but I'd feel guilty not buying the DVD. Most times I can't afford the DVD anyway and I have to save up for a few months (disability check amounts suck!), but since (and including) 13.37 and 14.0 I've tried to patiently wait till I got the money and bought the DVD's and not done any downloading of the ISO's.

I use FrostWire as my torrent downloader. Is there a way I can 'seed' one of those links you have in your post without actually downloading the torrent?

Not sure what your card is, but 304.116 - works fine here!

See this thread for more posts on the subject.

Thank you. I love you. Keep it up!

(Would be a shame if one of the oldest distributions dies. Especially since Canonical tries to change the world in a no-good way.)

From Wikipedia:

Quote:
The 1× speed rating for CD-ROM (150 KiB/s) is different than the 1× speed rating for DVDs (1.32 MiB/s).
Thought that was a wee bit different, so I thought I'd look it up. Just FYI.

Regards,

Matt
