Great suggestions, onebuck:-)

H_TeXMeX_H 04-15-2007 11:55 AM

Well, I've found all the links in my sig to be very useful.

Also:

Setting up LAMP in slackware
Using multimedia keys
Alien Bob's easy firewall generator

Slackware for PPC
64-bit slackware
Advanced Linux Programming Guide

http://slackersbible.org/
Linux WiFi support
spkg alternative pkg management (up to 30x faster) (not sure about stability tho)

Bashburn (if you don't want k3b)
My guide to speeding up slackware boot time

That's all I can think of right now.

A lot of the reference is in my sig but I would like to highlight a little more.

Why not use the Linux Counter? This is a way to track the Linux community and provide a means of knowing what is being used. I would suggest that a Linux user to use the Linux counter. So get counted!

A lot of users, be a newbie or experienced user needs to start using the LQ search. A lot of the posted questions are not unique, so Find Your LQ Answer.

Most people really don't know how to present the problem they are having.
I would suggest that you read the How to Ask Questions the Smart Way.

We have a lot of good online reference available to us. A few good guides to look at are Linux Command Guide or Linux Newbie Admin Guide


I have included my online reference list for Slackware and Linux in general. I would like to append more but LQ limits the signature. If you have any that you would like to include in this post then please do! I'm planning a web site that will be primarily Slackware support. Please use the LQ ordered list format if possible for multiples.
  1. Slackware Home
  2. Slackware Packages
  3. Linux Packages
  4. Slackware Essentials

I know the post has a redundant list but I'm not going to spend time to adjust. I think this will be a great service to the Slackware Community when completed.

Great idea, could we add 'Solved' like gentoo's official forum?
Hope you find something you like in my sig.

Hi,

I think that redundant links will be edited out but the latter two of your sig should be included.

Thanks mannyslack!

Hi,

Sorry about not responding to you about the 'Solved' suggestion.
I think that would be a great idea.

Maybe something like that should be presented to Jeremy. Not just a sticky but actually a sub-form as a possible solutions forum.

XavierP 04-17-2007 09:30 AM

Before doing that, search for "solved" and for "answered" in the LQ Suggestions and Feedback forum and read up on the (at least) 3 years of discussions on the matter. Use tags if you want to mark something as solved or answered.

Hi,

Thanks for the suggestion. I will look into that this mourning.
I'm reaping from your sig some good links to add too the list.

Hi,

I took a look at the LQ Suggestions & Feedback as suggest by XavierP. I did a search for 'solved' . I read a few of the post. I think the tags will be a better way to continue.

The crown isn't just a metaphor you know, Jeremy makes us earn them :)

Kingscriber 04-19-2007 04:00 PM


Yea this is a great idea. Once the list gets long enough, then you will need another system of organizing the links. :scratch: I am seeing limit function here...as we start to approach a certain number, this doesn't become feasible to someone that could be a newbie.
