This is an old joke, the version I first heard was, "Ubuntu is an ancient African word that means: I do not know how to install Debian."

From Uncyclopedia.

EDIT: I also note the Cthulhu reference in that article. Maybe that's where I got the blog idea from, can't remember now. I claim cryptomnesia.

It became too long.. The soft is outdated, involving more and more problems on updating it manually.
I spent all the day today just to fuguring out the better way to upgrade my Vim..
Really frustrating

Grabbing the buildscript from -current and building vim8 for 14.2 worked for me. Though it's the only thing I needed.

I don't think Slackware is about novelty or easy of use (whatever that means) - in time I installed it was about to be stable, to run on even very old hardware. I don't think Plasma5 fit that latter description. Slackware evolves in the time - but comparing to the other distributions - rather slow. The are distributions considered to be 'edge' - but it is not about Slackware - Slackware offers good price in terms of novelty/stability - speaking figuratively.

Yup, you can very easily update quite a lot of things that way without ill side effects, as long as you know what packages not to mess with. Try doing that on any other distro and watch the package manager go nuts.

The only program I've run into problems compiling that I really want on 14.2 is kodi v18. It needs a newer version of mesa unless I want to disable VAAPI decoding. There are others that I've run into that are unable to be upgraded, but there weren't any killer features that made me disappointed they couldn't be upgraded.

bassmadrigal, you could try Flathub Kodi build possibly, but please lets stay on topic.

About vim.SlackBuild, how do you guys download the script directory stuff?
I tried something like
Code:
wget -r -np -R "index.html*" https://mirrors.slackware.com/slackware/slackware64-current/source/ap/vim/
but it always gives me a bunch of garbage in load:

I got nuts in Slack trying to force work Vim8 from -current in 14.2 (I hate to compile anything without needing)
