Slackware 10 Developement Team - Thank You! Thank You! and Thank you!
just wanted to drop a quick note the the developers (contributors, managers, programmers , hackers, etc) who have all contributed to the success of slackware 10.0, it took a couple of days but i knew it would be worth it....

just wanted to thank you for bringing my machine up to date with all the new toys i have to play with now, things like USB 2.0....

ok ok, so thats been on Mac & Windows for years, big deal. right now it's on Linux and i'm having a ball with it....

seriously, the real excitement stems from my growing ability to fix all my own problems, with slackware, you only have to look under the cover a little bit, it's all a matter of having things in the logical place....!

way to go slackware team!

thanks again

I share your excitement over Slack 10.0, but got kinda lost with
the USB 2.0 deal. It was there in Slack-9.1, actually, it's been in
the kernels for quite some time now....

i got serious problems getting usb 2 to work with slack 10 ... especially with kernel 2.4.26 ...
i wonder if these 2 are in relation and if 2.6 could help ...
and the new hotplug is so buggy btw ...

USB 2.0 works fine for me in 2.4.26, as it has in about 4 other
2.4.x series kernels. But hotplug being buggy, maybe that's
why if I mount with my usb gas drive plugged in, the usb mouse
won't work properly. It only goes up and down, not right and
left. And nothing short of a reboot has fixed this so far.

I like some of the package updates in Slack-10.0, and I've been
using the 2.4.26 kernel, but I sure seem to have some gremlins
in Slack-10.0 that I just can't track down...

well the bug i had was with this thinkpad r40 laptop ...
the modem wasnt recognized, and at boot time, hotplug kinda "replaced" the modem with the soundcard .. i had to add "snd-intel8x0m" to the hotplug blacklist ... i think its quite a popular bug .. happens with everyone :p

With regards to the original post, I have to agree. This is the BEST distro by far that I've ever used! I futzed around for a month with SuSE 9.1 pro and the latest Mepis and PCLOS for my husband's box. They all had terrible bugs and instabilities that I couldn't seem to fix no matter what I tried. Finally gave up and put in Slack 10. You know, the HARD distro, lol! What can I say? Everything just works! That's not to say I didn't have to tweak and configure stuff, but that's not the same as fighting bugs. And everything is where it's supposed to be if you know where to look.

I'm a Slack subscriber and I encourage everyone to subscribe and support this great distro.
