Slackware

Postby nadir » Wed Oct 05, 2016 7:47 pm

i for one am done with slackware. The reasons:
i don't like the approach to install everything and the kitchen sink.
too few packages
using Slackbuild is still a pain

Running upgrade-all gave me a non-booting system. For now i installed refracta, to have quick acess to virtualbox. Gentoo/Funtoo or Salix might be an option ( GenFuntoo being way more comfortable than Slackware, disadvantage to compile each program and each upgrade).

Not that it would matter much, just saying
So i herd u liek mudkip?

i think its such a cool idea, and its been around forever.

in all that time, ive never gotten around to it. im reluctant to bother with distros that dont have a deblobbed kernel, im not into source-based distros yet, but i seem fairly content to have slack be something i hear about. i do hear a lot of good things-- not today i guess.

I am pretty sure it is a really good distro.
Only saying it ain't the right distro for me.
Sure worth a shot.

I will give funtoo a try these days. I maiinly looked into Slackware to avoid the kernel-compiling when using gentoo. That didn't work well :-) (even more work than gentoo.
Had a quick glance over the installation guide, looks straight forward (pretty much like a usual chroot).

If you want to run Slackware, Salix is, or was, a good choice, but I've not run Slack in years.
AntiX is a good choice, for a Debian based OS.
I've been a loyal Debian, or Debian based, user for many years, but now I'm looking to Devuan to be my base distro.
