I ask these questions because I do not want to be a "heretic" slacker, in other words, I do not want to be a slacker that uses unofficial tools to use Slackware!

The sbotools and slackpkg plus be considered official tools of Slackware after the death of Patrick Volkerding?

In other words, the sbotools and slackpkg plus will be considered official tools of Slackware by successors of Patrick Volkerding?

Considering that the Land Lord looks grumpy at you, I suggest you to calm down and to edit your own post, if you do not want to know the LQ variant of the "excommunication".

If I were Pat, I'd be thinking "uhm, dude, I'm standing right there."

You aren't a slacker at all by your own admission. How can you be a "'heretic' slacker?"

All these threads have been made by an entity that doesn't use Slackware.

There isn't a block user feature on here is there?

I'm in the way of to install FreeBSD, why not try installing and using
Slackware?

I will decide to install and use Slackware to be a real slacker. If sbotools and slackpkg plus are against Slackware philosophy, is not better to use a more user-friendly Linux distributions like Red Hat than to use tools that are against the philosophy of Slackware?

Patrick Volkerding approve sbotools and slackpkg plus?

There is no "standard" Slacker. The OS is purposefully designed to not assume what the user will be doing with it. If you install anything that isn't on the install disk, it is "unofficial" software. There's nothing wrong with that, in fact, it is expected since Slackware includes a lot of development libraries. Most people seem to be fine with using tools like slackpkg+ and sbotools/sbopkg/slpkg.

It is not polite to talk about the death of someone. Please consider this on future posts.

But there is also no point in discussing what would happen to Slackware in the event that Pat no longer develops Slackware. Hypotheticals like this are a waste of time. There are millions of hypotheticals that could be asked and it's just not worth it to discuss them. By the time Pat stops developing Slackware, things could have progressed to something completely different that makes those tools irrelevant.

All that matters is right now, neither are an official tool, yet they can be helpful to use. Using them does not make you a "heretic". It makes you a Slackware user. Slackware users tailor the OS to their needs and there are countless configurations that are out there.

But please, if you're going to continue to post in this forum, try Slackware.

@pompous ninja

Honestly?

If you have to chose between Slackware and RedHat Enterprise Linux and to pay $1,299 per year and computer is affordable for you, I strongly recommend you the RedHat Enterprise Linux.

Hint: for those money you get also 24/7 professional dedicated support and they never call you "heretic", at least that time you pay.

People can freely use whatever tools they want with Slackware, modifying Slackware to fit their needs. You cannot comment on Slackware's user-friendliness because you've never used it. I doubt you've used any Linux distribution or BSD flavor.

Also you have not managed to bypass my captcha to prove that you aren't a bot. Go here: http://digg.com/
Then put in:
Code:
up arrow, up arrow, down arrow, down arrow, left arrow, right arrow, left arrow, right arrow, b, a
What happens?

Not sure where the bot speculation is coming from.

My personal suspicion is that this is TigerLinux/future_computer.

Can this thread be closed? It serves no valid purpose.

The jeremy warned me twice that I will be banned if I do not change my behavior, because of that I will not answer that your question outside the topic.

No its on topic because those keys are useful in navigating the menu in slackpkg plus.

One way to practice "heresy" in Slackware is to use other ways to get packages, in addition to the official source and Slackbuilds. Older Slackware users, conservatives, do not trust in other forms that make life easier for the user.

This makes sense, because when the system changes a lot, it tends to become flawed.

Using slpkg, slapt-get that are same to apt-get of Debian makes you lose all the grace and magic that have in Slackware!

Is not better to use Salix than slapt-get in Slackware?

The great "Bob" Dobbs only regrets for the pinks, does not condemn them or pursue them in any other way. Living in heresy is punishment enough!
