You should know that most programs store their configuration files in the /etc directory, usually in obvious places like /etc/slackpkg/slackpkg.conf and /etc/sbopkg/sbopkg.conf. These are flat text files and are usually well commented. So whenever you have questions like this you can usually just look in the appropriate .conf file for the answer.

Since LQ Slackware forum is the official forum you will find helpful and resourceful members willing to help.

Look at the the links in my sig and you will find several good points of reference.

SlackwareŽ-Links is very resourceful and more than just SlackwareŽ-Links; Look at SlackwareŽ Basics to enhance your Slackware experience.

Alien Pastures is Alien_Bob's (Eric Hameleers) blog. Alien_Bob is a Slackware team member that provides excellent package resource and development. Alien_Bob provides this mirror & rsync:/

Be sure to look at the stickies;
So you want to be a Slacker! What do I do next? & solutions for users.

The above links and others can be found at 'Slackware-Links'. More than just SlackwareŽ links!
Again, I've got nothing but gratitude for all the help from everyone! I spent 2 or 3 weeks doing nothing but reading all the slackware guides (from here and elsewhere) because I was trying to decide between Slackware and Arch for a few new laptops. In all fairness, none of the slackware material comes close to the wiki but hey its a slacker distro so that's cool.

I'm a Linux hobbyist (and sometime consultant) and I've been using Linux at home since 1998 and even I have had most of my old skills atrophy with the advent of automated package management and the over automated nature of the tools now included in the mainstream distros.

I'm really having an absolute blast using Slackware and re-learning all this stuff again!
