Talking Big thank you to rworkman for the networkmanager packages!


Wow, I just want to say thanks to rworkman for the networkmanager packages he made available with the xfce4.8 packages here: http://connie.slackware.com/~rworkman/xfce-4.8/ It makes life just so much easier with as laptop when having to use multiple wifi and 3g hotspots. Let me know when you ever are in South Africa and I will most definitely get you a few rounds of ale I really wish it becomes part of the next Slackware major release.

Hi,

Welcome to LQ!

rworkman is one of many Slackware contributors that help to provide the best and oldest Gnu/Linux. Without their interactions I'm sure the load for PV would be very heavy.

Kudos to all team members!

Thanks for the welcomes, have been running slackware a few days now and really like it a lot. Did some distro hopping prior to settling on slackware and must say it is the best by far.
