Jeebizz, I'm running slackware-current which has been kept current for almost a year using swaret. No glitches. I think what's saved me is that I have a habit of looking through the Changelog before or during upgrades. Volkerding usually writes stuff there which is useful if not crucial to know (be)for(e) an upgrade. My switch to Xorg, for instance, was a very simple move thanks to this, since both the change in config file and the kbd driver change were mentioned there.

To make upgrades simpler I have written a script which checks and outputs the differences between the changelog in /var/swaret/.cache/ (which is from the latest swaret --update), on the Slack root server (; containing the absolutely latest info) and on my Slack mirror of choice (which I sync my system against). From the differences in the Changelogs I always know what's going on. If you'd like I'll post it here later - I'm at work now and have the script on my home box.
