Coming back again to slackware
A few months ago, I said that I wasn't ready, and that I'd try again in a few months. That time is now, wish me luck, and I'm sure i'll have some more problems for you all to answer :)

Welcome back.

Good luck with it.

I agree that it is kind of irresistable to want to run Slackware (for me at least).

I switched back to Slack from Debian yesterday. Debian is probably better but i missed Slack :)

What do you think is better about Debian?

I think the obvious thing is apt-get and the huge repository of apps.
But Slackware has its own advantages.... like not overwriting my damn /etc/resolv.conf at every boot.

If you're looking for apps tailored for Slack, go to -- J.W.

Mainly the packages, is just a fart in the wind compared too Debians repositories.

As a slackware user I compile 50% of installed program to best suit my cpu/arch optimisation, and I am not alone to feel slackware is free because of its package system compatibility with compiled software.
