witch version of slackware are you using.
There is no greater futility then running windows ME.

None at the moment, I used to run Slackware back in the day, but for a couple years I had switched to redhat. Now with fedora the tendency for redhat to really botch the kde installation I am switching back to Slackware, but Im waiting for the next release before I do it. Any word on when 9.2 is due out?

Hi and wow!

I am the only one who has voted? Clicked vote and there was only one vote. :)
I just installed 9.1 couple of days ago to get easy access to KDE 3.2. To me Slackware seems pretty good so far, a little FreeBSD like. Now I am waiting someone to make 2.6 kernel as a Slackware package(if it is even possible to get 2.6 to 9.1 as a binary?), I would compile it myself but I don't have enough room for gcc and others on my hard disk... I got only 1 Gb partition left and to get KDE and some nessacery applications to fit in there I had to left developement tools out.
btw. has anyone else been having problems with kopete 0.8 in Slackware 9.1 and KDE 3.2? In my system kopete just closes itself after a while, no error messages or crash handler showing. I also get some random kded service crashes. Could be that I haven't configured my box properly and I am new to Slackware. :)

Im toying around with building packages in slackware. Kernels can be complicated though, once i get good enough with making slackware packages to build kernels, Ill post a 2.6 binary. First Im trying with some simpler applications like packages for kopete, mplayer, xine, ogle, and some others.

Yea not many people vote in here :) there seams not be be a big folowing of slackware (at least in the kde forems). I guess because its more linux like and not more windows like redhat and mandrake :)

Slackware is great ! I am using Slackware 9.1 and I'm not planing to change my distro. And ZipSlack is also great for Windows users who want to try Linux . You do not have to make or resize partitions , nor to do installation - you only need to unzip your ZipSlack in a windows (DOS) folder and it works !

Running slackware 9.1 up to current, xfree86 4.4.0, kde 3.2.1 and a 2.4.25 kernel. not willing to upgrade to 2.6 untill it's atleast in it's 2.6.1x release, around 2.6.15 or so i might consider it but untill then i'm just fine with what i got
