Squid and Slackware
 
Why doesn't Patrick include Squid in Slackware???

o_O Pat must have his reasions, maybe there is another similar proxy server thats packaged with slackware.

The only other proxy server I know of is oops , and I believe it is based off of squid, but not sure about that. There is a slackware packages of squid 2.5 stable5, over at linuxpackages.net for slackware 10.0.

i haven't seen ANY cacheing proxy server included in slackware, of course maybe i haven't looked hard enough...

i know you can get a squid package at linuxpackages.net or you can make your own package from source...

i'm just trying to figure-out why squid isn't an official slackware package...

i mean, web caches being so popular and important these days...

Try make a poll like
"Do you want squid be part of official slackware packages" [yes | no | I don't care]

It may help for you to figure out "why squid isn't an official slackware package..."

so basically, what you're saying is that the reason for squid not being included in slackware is that most people either don't want it in slackware or they don't care if it is or not...

I think the ultimate Internet gateway out-of-the-box trio for Slack would be:

1.) gShield (solve the problems with "I've installed Slack, now where is the firewall...")
2.) Squid
3.) Ad-zapper for Squid
