Slackware can do what any other distro can do or use. The only differences are what comes with it, how its maintained and packaged, etc. When it all comes down to it, all distros consist of the same thing in most cases, unless a distro has its own software included in it.

In the future you can ask your specific slackware questions in our Slackware forum. Thanks.
