We say it too in the West Riding, or used to. I vividly remember the row forty years ago when my mother accused the next door neighbours of living over't brush. It was particularly provocative because they were brother and sister...

Just skimming through a book I haven't looked at for ages: "Lancashire Dialect" by Peter Wright. Some funny stuff in there.

I actually understand the issue the OP was having, and I've always had the same problem, only it was on the opposite end of the spectrum.

On distros with automatic package managers such as opensuse, linux mint, or ubuntu, I would always run into problems after installing a program with it, and spend hours upon hours trying to fix it. The problem with these automatic package managers is you don't see much going on under the hood, so it's a bit difficult to diagnose problems.

And that's why I like Slackware, because I believe in the good old idiom of "If you want something done right, do it yourself" I'd rather spend a few hours building software correctly instead of installing it fast and spending hours trying to fix problems. I like being in control, so that's why Slackware is perfect for me - it strives in user control while keeping it simple.

I can see it being a waste of time for most people, but for me it's time well spent. The way I see it, stability is priceless!

Now that being said, it's been a while since I've tried operating systems with automatic package managers, they might have improved quite a bit by now, but I'll stick with my comfort zone (slackware) for now. If you want a distro with a good package manager, I would go with Linux Mint, I always liked their package manager. In my past experiences, they had a pretty good package manager compared to other distros I've tried

Well, I've commented here that the X86_64 version of google earth works up to a point (no multi-lib required). I didn't make a slackbuild of it, but I did mention what to do to get it to work.
