I think it is kind of a mess to separate headers, source, modules and the kernel in different packages.

It would also be nice to only have the generic kernel (on the installation DVD) and make it mandatory to always use an initrd. That would probably reduce the number of "kernel panic" posts as well..

Nahh,

I like having "huge" as the default so you have a working distro before you have to learn about initrds and kernel modules and such.

I like having the choice. This way There's More Than One Way to Do It.

Well, you didn't want to work for them anyway, then.

This is a historical day for Slackware.
Shadow got upgraded after a really long time. 8 years or so iirc.
Thanks to Robby Workman.

That would be awesome. That's one of the few things I really miss in slackware (As I mentioned in page two at this thread actually :P). Then perhaps it will be easier to make slackware a ldap client as well as an ldap server

It would be nice to have GNOME back on Slackware. I started to use Slackware since 12.0 and I used Fedora before. GNOME is the only thing I really miss. I know it can be installed, but it practically entails changing the distribution itself.

In addition to that, I'm smelling policy-kit and related $KIT that redhat keeps inventing on it's own to make gnu/linux complicated so companies buy support contracts.

I suspect it's due to kde 4.X series wanting that stuff for power management, etc.

I'd really wish the FOSS world would just knock it off with all of these console-kit, policy-kit, $KIT stuff that is ever changing, and under-documented for real user's.

Linux is starting to be a project of:

"How many $KIT app's can we build to try and give a user root priv's but not be root".

/End_Of_Rant.sh

edit: back on topic here:

I really cannot think of anything I'd like to see in Slackware to be honest since Slackbuilds.org, rworkman's site, slacky, and alienbob's repo's all have very nice scripts to use. If those community site's were not available, well yeah, my need for things added would be much larger

Personally, I wish they would make a kernel or a kit or somethin
so the kernel already has aufs/squashfs modules prebuilt in
cause there seems to be NO tutorials on how to patch the kernel for aufs/squashfs modules??

I've been trying for months to make a slack livecd via Linux Live
and no dice!

Your google-fu is not strong then.

The aufs patch instructions have always been available at http://aufs.sourceforge.net/ (section "3. Configuration and Compilation
").

Squashfs instructions are in http://tldp.org/HOWTO/html_single/Sq...WTO/#preparing - it is not that hard.

And to make it even easier, Thomas M. has written scripts that do all the work for you: ftp://ftp.slax.org/source/slax/kernel/2.6.27.27

How about a mini iso (boot only) so you can do a net install (lan/internet), like FreeBSD without having to download a full iso.

Take a look at 'mini ISO image' which can be used to do a NFS or HDD install.

Alien Bob's wiki has a lot of useful information.


The above links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
