Hi,

I have noticed lately there have been inquiries for ruario's Slackware Mozilla Firefox script latest-firefox.sh

You can get the updated script here; https://gist.github.com/ruario/9672798

Hope this helps.
Have fun & enjoy!

Hi guys,

I've read almost the entirely thread to know how to be a Slacker. But something still unclear for me. I'm a long time Slackware user, but I'm not a developer, I work with Networking and a (poorly) sysadmin. But I want to make more for Slackware, what I need to know to improve my skills, much as like what is happening in the this two threads: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...-a-4175620463/ & https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ls-4175561999/

I need to turn a dev, or dev high skills to help with something like this?

PS. I'm already started to localize (improve what already is done) docs.slackware.com to my native language, so the docs is something I'm reading constantly.

Cheers,

The advice I can give is don't be afraid to be an experimentalist. And if it comes to that don't be wary of ripping things apart. Of-course then learn to put them together. SW is IMO one of the easier distros to mod around with and play with. I would also add that reading only gets you so far. You need to get your hands dirty. This is a mantra widely employed by many dumbass sysadmins who are themselves a fairly illiterate bunch of the crop. It's quite a bit more about doing rather than reading.
Second, find problems with your distro and work on them.

Having said all this, when you put your computer to good use, the distro is the last thing that should be getting in your way. A computer is put to much better use when you're not there fixing problems with its operation 24/7. It's a tool after all.
