Slackware Package Management

http://beginlinux.com

If you haven't played with Slackware within the past couple of years, you may still believe that the word “easy” doesn't go well with the words “update” and “package management”. But, two fairly new utilities, “slackpkg” and “sbopkg”, may help to change your mind.

The first time I’ve ever been disappointed by Slackware

http://linuxcritic.wordpress.com

I guess I probably shouldn’t be too surprised, because I knew that Pat Volkerding has been working with my least favorite desktop environment and it’s been in /current for a while now. But I guess a part of me still was holding out a childish hope that Slackware 13.0 release would be KDE 3.5.10.

Review: Absolute Linux 12.1.05 – Slackware Made Easier

http://reddevil62-techhead.blogspot.com

INSTALLING Slackware is a Linux rite of passage. It is the computing equivalent of wandering off alone into the bush for a month armed with nothing more than a pointy stick and grim determination.
That is to say, it is quite a testing experience that is not to be entered into lightly. It is also something you only want to have to do once, if at all possible.
