As to phonetically bound, then thanks for the clarification. No urban or slang dictionary will make it justified. I still think it's stupid.

Trash a language to be cool!
Have fun & enjoy!
Yet you add a quote from a non baby boomer, which according to your reasoning, you either are a baby boomer or you are some other more recent generation. That's some reasoning you have there.

sounding like someone is really taking offense to being called names.

Maybe the OP will come back some day, not being discouraged by all this spamming of his or her thread? Maybe not? Who knows?

Maybe some people would be easily discouraged by a few daft off-topic (or ophph-topic) remarks, who knows?. Personally, instead of asking the OP's question, I would read all the available documentation. Seems like common sense to me.

Yes but... you are not the OP, and many people are more easily convinced by a discussion in a group than by what they read or what an expert tells them, and first and foremost look for opinions of peers that they can discuss in an interactive manner.

This has been well demonstrated during WW II by Kurt Lewin, cf. :
https://sparq.stanford.edu/solutions...ge-start-crowd
https://stormz.me/fr/blog/experience-lewin
https://www.nap.edu/read/9566/chapter/8

Maybe the creators of the so-called "social" networks have read the works of Kurt Lewin?

Exactly. Something well researched and many books written about the subject since the 1800s.

One of a few famous such books:

The OP's question was about installing Slackware. And Kurt Lewin won't help us to help him/her any better than pointing him/her to SlackDocs & CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT, etc, etc, etc.

Apparently knowledge outside of computing is to be considered heretical.

Not heretical, but irrelevant.

Hi,

Let us get this thread back on topic. It helps no one, especially the OP being this far off topic.

We have drifted so far off it's not helping any one let alone the OP.

Sorry if my contribution(s) swayed this thread. So please get back on topic.

Hope this helps.

Back on topic.
The hardest thing the OP will need to do during the installation is to manually partition his/her hard drive. Preparation is key. Read the Slackware book or other Slackware documentation before you attempt the installation. The installer will not hold your hand.

One thing that is missing from this thread is a description of what the OP plans to install Slackware on. Hopefully silence is a sign of a happy customer!

Love this quote - very true of Slackware. However, sometimes updating a dependency may break a package and the user may have to guess what changed if it's a long time between updating said dependency and using said package.

If a package is not working I suppose it may be just worth rebuilding the thing, including depends.

Given this thread has run into three pages, it's mostly just rudeness now.
