My next goal is to write this stuff down and save it for future use. There are some excellent Slackware guides out there, and they're my primary sources on setting up and configuring my favorite OS, but naturally I have my own personal settings.

Perhaps you could create a blog post at LQ.o/blog to track your config? I maintain a wiki on my system for just these kind of notes.

That's a good idea. I'll have to comb through my subscribed threads here, as well, to capture the problems I've faced and their solutions.

- set keyboard to dvorak layout
- install dosbox, need it for maxthink (outline & thinking tool)
- enable UTF-8 in X
- uninstall MPlayer & thumbs
- install webcore-fonts
- install firefox add-ons
- install freemind (mind map software)
- recompile & install favorite apps (ffmpeg, jackd, aqualung, mplayer, smplayer etc).

PS: maxthink & freemind helps to organize thinking routines, including system config & required deps in slackware! Dos version of maxthink is more intuitive.

My move to Slackware64,an input hotplugging enabled xorg-server & XFCE again, after 2,5 years, cut down the number of packages i build to 24.
Sadly, after 2,5 years of dwm, xmonad and ratpoison, XFCE takes some time to get used to. And especially cause i am forced to do more things with the rodent than before.
