hello igadoter
yes that read me is empty, it is made in the remaster process I gotta find in the code where it comes from but it's harmless.

Were you able to download and install on usb or hdd?
Thanks for any support

Ok I tested it - first I did notice that iso is hybrid - so it is enough to dd'ed it on pendrive. Let me make some remarks - it is just my personal point of view, I am long standing Knoppix user - so I have some experience with possible difficult situations:
1) put in the first line of Readme.txt file what are root and default user passwords - I needed to reload b43 driver to make wifi to work - kernel by default loads wl
2) compositor on my video card does not work properly - abiword window was flickering - I can live without transparency - but I couldn't find how to disable compositing
3) I am impressed by the number of wallpapers - but I think it is better to create themes - combination of wallpaper and first of all font color on terminal - and some other things - default yellow on transparent background can be difficult to read - and it seems you have large monitor - on my laptop menu font looks tiny. Now some pro: well Firefox is amusingly fast - desktop is really fast and light - LXDE is a good choice - desktop looks simple and clean. Again contra: when failing with password appear comments - they are fun at the beginning but then after several attempts they are just only irritating. For me system is too tightly secured. Things are always at some point will break - it is just like that - so you need then to create workarounds - say switch runlevel - if X server crash - restart it with only xinit - and so on... run manually all network instead of with wicd or NetworkManager and so on..Hope this will help.

hello

ok lets go through it and thanks for trying it out

1) Does your pc/laptop use broadcom drivers? (sorry I forgot to delete that pkg before making remaster)

2) Compoistor? Which version did you download?

3) The comments you're talking about when doing login, you mean in console login in the slackware slackerc current iso or the slacker 14.2 iso?

Note you can do pkgtool/rerun slackware scripts to setup network, etc for your pc.

Let fix the thing: I downloaded the recent version of 14.2. Yes I have broadcom wifi - I have look at /lib/firmware/b43 - there is a lot things there - I hope it would work - but first I need to remove wl - I have the same issue on Knoppix 8.2, comments appear in graphical terminal - on desktop I clicke terminal icon - then tried to login - in this terminal - as root or doing sudo - incorrect password causes these comments to appear - I don't remember now - 'watch your English....' other 'Bob.'. You right I can run pkgtool but as root or doing sudo - but what is the root password?

note the comments are not mine lol but something in slackware idk

also there is in the boot menu a option for booting to runlevel 3 console login, have you used that?
I agree console login should be default, I'll fix that in next release.

you can hit TAB button at boot to edit the commands for botting
Like say you want to boot toram, and persistent, where it says "slax.flags=" use "slax.flags=perch,toram"

Hi I am just posting as Slacker - dmesg is full of backtraces - I can put it here if you are interested. I was rather thinking about escape Ctrl+Alt+F6 to run out from X server and if necessary to kill X. Default desktop is ok! Here just an example
Code:
bash-4.3$ sudo passwd

We trust you have received the usual lecture from the local System
Administrator. It usually boils down to these three things:

    #1) Respect the privacy of others.
    #2) Think before you type.
    #3) With great power comes great responsibility.

I see you like dark colors - everything here is dark - such theme has a name but I forgot - looks little like mate, as I suspected I had to manually probe b43 module to make wifi work, also I noticed very strange thing: default wireless interface in wicd desktop applet is set to eth1 - it is evidently wrong. If it is done by wicd itself - something wrong is with wicd.

Hey
the wicd thing is my fault, had to set it to eth1 for my laptop dell 1545 using broadcom 4312

I like dark colors because Ive had 8 concussions and its easier on the battery lol

I have to get sudoers working in it, tried before didnt work- so dont use sudo su to become root, use just su then root password.

Here is screenshot, congratulations! Good work! Next step for me is to install on USB with fat32. This would allow me to run Slackera and to carry files from Windows to Linux and vice versa. But it will be good to add a light color desktop theme as alternative

ok look in menu/preferences/customize look and feel to change themes/icons

read the instructions here for installing to usb fat32 and if you want use persistence so things are retained every time you boot
just scroll down thru the readme, its also on that desktop

Put your slackr on fat32 partition, created an /EFI/BOOT copied files from Slackware64-14.2/EFI repository to EFI on usb, edited the grub.cfg to work with usb, booted like a charm in efi mode, Only downside is I have to build the driver for my wireless card, even on the newest kernels.

Emacs has missing dependencies
Code:
bash-4.3$ emacs
emacs: error while loading shared libraries: libMagickWand-6.Q16.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I posted this because there is no other development tool except this.

Emacs is your custom build there is no libMagickWand in 14.2 here
Code:
bash-4.3$ ldd /usr/bin/emacs  | grep "not found"
	libMagickWand-6.Q16.so.2 => not found
	libMagickCore-6.Q16.so.2 => not found
Stupid but simple
Code:
bash-4.3# ldd /usr/bin/* | grep "not found"
ldd: /usr/bin/X11: not regular file
	libfltk.so.1.3 => not found
	libMagickWand-6.Q16.so.2 => not found
	libMagickCore-6.Q16.so.2 => not found
	libMagickWand-6.Q16.so.2 => not found
	libMagickCore-6.Q16.so.2 => not found
ldd: /usr/bin/google-chrome-stable: No such file or directory
ldd: /usr/bin/svn-tools: not regular file
	libMagickCore-6.Q16.so.2 => not found
