New Slackware forum


You asked for it and you got it. I was not able to get Slackware onboard yet, but I am still trying. In the mean time I think that the demand was big enough to warrant the forum now. Have fun!

I'm really not too sure what a discussion of pants will do for the open source community, but if Jeremy thinks it will be a good idea them I'm all for it.



**** PANTS FOREVER !!! ****

(This could take some getting used to)

What about a Mandrake/RedHat/SuSE/WinLinux2000/Thymix forum?

I think that the LFS and Slackware forums are a good idea because neither the LFS Site nor the Slackware Site have forums of their own.

Gentoo, however, is still a fairly small distro, so most questions could be answered in the Distributions forum, without needing a forums all of its own, and RH, Mandy, SuSE, etc all have forums on their own sites, should you really, really want to go there (don't, BTW, you want to stay here...hmm, warm 'n' fuzzy LQ)

Slackware ( and debian ) are kind of unique when it comes to the popular distro's, the main reason is they don't use rpm's and they sail a close tack to the unix standard, in the case of slack you can even say that it's the closest thing to BSD that you can have and still run linux. Slack is also the oldest distro still being maintained. Gentoo is an interesting distro and one that I intend to have a verry close look and I think that it has a lot of promise.

Yes, but G3ntoo is no longer in beta stages anymore, 1.1a was relased not too long ago and i find it to be a VERY uniqie OS as its built upon a very cool portage system built by Daniel Robbins that is similer to BSD's portage system.

Plus, The packages are updated very often, so gentoo is good for people who want to stay on the bleeding edge.

But you are right about one thing, Gentoo isn't very popular yet so its ok if you dont make a gentoo forum

Just curious...

Will all of the Slackware threads be moved from the distribution forum into the Slack sub-forum?

Although I use (& praise) LQ's search engine it's obvious that it's not always used before new threads are created.

I'm not sure what such a task would entail, but at the very least it would make browsing this forum more interesting...for the time being.

I thikn it might be better to keep the current threads where they are untill they have finished and only move new ones here.
