Thanks to the people at!
I made sure to thank the Slackware contributors, so I thought it only fair to say thanks to the people that keep up and running!

Between and AlienBob's slackbuilds, it's pretty painless to get it all just the way you like it.

Thanks to everyone involved!

I can not give enough praise for slackbuilds and the sbopkg tool and LQ!

If it weren't for those, I would have been hard pressed to get Slackware "up to speed" in a timely manner so I can do my work.

If they didn't exist, I may not even be using Slackware.

Chess Griffin, Eric Hameleers, Robby Workman, and the countless others, you all make it possible for the masses to enjoy Slackware.

I can only aspire to the level of your excellence.

Thank you.

I gladly join the group of folks who want to say "Thank you" to the guys at, as well as Eric Hameleers. I use the fruit of their efforts as a base for my daily work.

100% agree, I went over there today to see if submissions had opened so I could send my fixes for 14 and to my amazement it was already done, that is just above and beyond awesome. Thanks to such a great team.

+ 1 Thank you to the people that keep running


Thank you for all those that contribute build scripts to Slackbuilds.

And thank you to LQ for giving us a place to hang our hats.

A tip of the hat and a bow to Pat and the Slackware team. And to all of the Slackbuilds contributers for making a great system.

I want to add my thanks to all of them as well. As a new Slacker I appreciate the work they do and all I am able to benefit from them!!

Thanks especially for packages that are otherwise hard to build or install, like lua, fpc, ffmpeg, ogre, etc.
