Thanks to the Slackware team for 9.1. Did a full format and install and my initial impressions are good, however, it's nice to see that some things don't change -- my HP PSC750 printer, Alcatel Speedtouch USB DSL connection and wheelmouse still don't work just as they didn't in 9.0. Still, it's a good job i that i actually ENJOY trying to solve these sort of problems.

Hi ppl,

I'd browsing this page for awhile, jealousing ur bandwidth but don't have a clue wut u r talking about bitorrent/ don't know how to begin with it until I found the description on a mirror about it.

The packages for bitorrent reside in /extra of ur ISO (install it first b4 u can begin with it I bet), there is a readme, which am also currently trying to read.

That should be a good start point for ppl considering to download. Segemented Downloading from 2/3 mirrors giving me highest 10+ KB/s .. :|

I can't wait till the download finishes.

Disk 1: Bitorrent @ 5-10Kbit/s
Disk 2: ftp.kpn.be @ 50-80Kbit/s

Ps I would keep that a secret Finegan
Ah, its just wrong to horde a good secret... kpn.be is also the only Complete slackware mirror I know of, down to the 1.x series releases if anyone wants to browse through some history.

Also, I didn't post until I was midway through disk 2

Unusual to my normal routine, I haven't had the chance to install this on anything yet. Gentoo on the laptop and the sparc and the Indy have been distracting me a bit. What's the concensus view? 8.1 to 9.0 saw a leap in both Gnome and KDE, 8.0 to 8.1 saw a jump from 2.2.19 to 2.4.18... and the first distro to release on Mozilla 1.0, 7.1 to 8.0 saw the first Slackware release with XFree 4.x.x, what's the big hop of this one?

Cheers,

Finegan

I just found out slack 9.1 came out since most of italy, including me, didn't have power for the past 20 hours or so...
Now its time i start plotting on how to get my hands on slackware 9.1 since downloading over dial-up is insane... Can't wait to try it out. Wednesday im getting my new laptop, and the first OS it will se will be Slack 9.1! Can't wait!
On a side note... Isn't it very strange that these past time power is going out. I mean first in the US, then France, now Italy and always because of "some unknown problem".
Someone is either stealing (somehow) enormous amounts of electricity or someone perfected Tesla's ultra high voltage currenst and is having fun blowing electrical systems in bigger countries (us, france, italy...)
Think about it... It's not normal... something is going on...

Running it now and it is very nice :-)

Installed Dropline on it as well (--force option). But I'm wondering: what does Dropline add at the moment that 9.1 hasn't got? Anybody know why I installed it? ;-)

On another note: I recently subscribed to the slackware announce and security mailing lists and I did expect an announce msg that 9.1 was there. Was it just me or wasn't there an announcement on that list?

Anyway... It feels good... :-)

dropline seems to just take the vanilla gnome and spruce it up a tad, I love dropline, and that is why it is comming close to being my wm of choice!

Hi guys,

I tried used swaret to update my system and everything was done half way when swaret tell me I run out of disk space. I found out that those packages are download into /var. Can I delete those files located in /var? Running swaret -a update will download those files I wonder whether it do the install at the same time if yes then I properly don't need those files in /var so I can free my space.

I need some advise on this. Thanks in advance

It got 2 version, full image (slackware.iso 1gb) or splited (slack1.iso, slakc2.iso) ..

halt

The only problem i have with slack is, it does not shutdown automatically as other distro when you power off your machine. Did they fix that on slack 9.1. Beside that it is a great operating system.

There is no problem with Slackware 9.0 you just need to compile ACPI with it. Read around the forum you should be able to get the ans.
