Slackware "Things to do List"


Hi All,
I remember not too long ago there was a thread on here for slackware users that basically had a huge todo list, or cool things to do with slackware. Everything from modifying your kernel to installing beryl, to setting up automounting. I have looked and looked and cant seem to find that thread anywhere. Could somebody help me out or point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
DragonM15

about all i would do to a clean install of Slackware would be to use slapt-get to download/install system updates and build a new kernel if needed, and fix up an IPTables firewall...

Hi,

By chance are you speaking of Shilo's 'This is how I do it all' sticky at the top of the forum page?

If not, then you should read it! A lot of useful information in this huge thread.
