hello world. new to slackware but not to linux.

Hello slackware world!

A little about me.
I have dabbled in a fair amount of technogical solutions, from building / upgrading PC's and laptops to raspberry pi's.

I currently run mint on a Toshiba, xp, ultimate edition oz with oz unity on my of x110 netbook, I should mention for the last year and some I have been running arch linux off that netbook also (from a 16g as card) I love arch, but only 30% of its community.

I am currently searching for a distro that is more true to linux, in thatvsearch I have been led to slackware.

My goal is to take the barebones iso, install from the ground up. This will give me a true feeling of how it works. I do not expect to be posting very much if at all untill I am satisfied with my installation, or forbid I run into a problem I cannot google my way out of.

I look forward to sharing what I learn on this journey.

And if by mistake I necrobump a post or too I hope you will be more forgiving than others have.

Welcome to LQ & Slackware.

Slackware is the official Slackware forum here at LQ. Be sure to look at the links in my sig to find some very useful information for Slackware. I have been using Slackware for a long time now and still learn something everyday.

Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!
