A long wait has come to end

Posted 01-18-2022 at 01:33 PM by carriunix

I know, Slackware 15.0 is not released yet, but I decided to write about the waiting in advance. Obviously, there will be more interesting things to write about once it is installed. The time of "about the waiting" is now. Slackware 14.2 was released in July 1st, 2016. Along six years a lot of things happened to me, to all community of users, and also to Mr. Volkerding. Financial problems, health issues, though decisions, pandemics.

In this mean time, I grown up as a Slacker....

So, you want to be a Slacker!? - Part three: The Slacker hanging on the branch

Posted 09-01-2021 at 07:29 PM by carriunix

As a final post about the "Slacker way" as I see it, let me write about branches and updates. One of the most frustrating things that happens with computer users is update the OS and break something in the system. "If I knew that will happen, I would have kept my old system", is the only thing we could think after that, obviously. It happens with all OS (Windows, MacOS and Linux), and more often, in those with short development cycles. That is, of course, instability. If an OS...

So, you want to be a Slacker!? - Part two: The Slacker attitude

Last post that I did, I stated that, in my humble opinion, to "be a Slacker", one must care about Slackware history, understand its philosophy, and also respect how it evolves. So, considering that you agree with all that, let's talk about how (again, from my perspective) you should behave to be considered a Slacker. Taking the final part of last post as a starting point, one must understand that Slackware Linux is what it is. It was given to you that way, period. If you think that "a...

So, you want to be a Slacker!? - Part one: The Slacker culture

My favorite thread title in Slackware LQ forum is "So you want to be a Slacker! What do I do next?", by onebuck. The good mood of the title (remembering Quest for Glory game) is enjoyable, but also the intent of the thread: To help the Slackware newbies. There, the discussion evolved through almost 14 years, so I decided to do a blog post instead of just reply. Let's say that I got late to the party. But, that's fine! Inspired by this thread, I will drop here some personal thoughts about...

Why Slackware Linux?

Posted 08-02-2021 at 08:39 AM by carriunix

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away ...
When I was initiating my undergraduate course, I had never heard about any OS different from Windows family (precisely 95, 98, 2000 and XP), neither MacOS or Linux. Then I was presented to a universe of distributions and tools, and I realized that I did not understand anything about computers (indeed, exactly as today). But I decided to do something about it. At the time, Ubuntu already was the most common distribution at university's environment....
