http://www.linuxquestions.org – LOL So, as any one who knows me here- Once I got hold of Slackware 13, after running 12.2/current I said "hell; I'll throw it on the testbed and have a go!" LOL So, standard medium install with xfce4 First thing I did was install my hack of jwm I made for Debian/Ubuntu http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ig-etc-785420/ nice and lite! OK, so you know I had to try and break some stuff:) Well, I havent yet permenently broke anything though a few X mishaps...normal stuff Anyway; so I got hold of the SalixOS, Absolute, and all the Slacky repos and sbopkg, src2pkg,etc LOL I had to install Gslapt just as I never have:) Wow My first un-slack install was Absolute Linux's version of Icewm !!!!!!! So awesome I'll probably end up breaking it but its OK I'll report back on this post as I install different things! Heres all the repos I got in /etc/slapt-get/slapt-getrc in Gslapt Code: WORKINGDIR=/var/slapt-get EXCLUDE=^aaa_elflibs,^devs,^glibc-.*,^kernel-.*,^udev,.*-[0-9]+dl$,x86_64 SOURCE=ftp://ftp.absolutelinux.org/absolute-current/ SOURCE=http://salix.enialis.net/i486/slackware-13.0/ SOURCE=http://salix.enialis.net/i486/slackware-13.0/extra/ SOURCE=http://salix.enialis.net/i486/13.0/:PREFERRED SOURCE=http://slackware.mirrors.tds.net/pub/slackware/slackware-13.0/:PREFERRED SOURCE=http://darkstar.ist.utl.pt/slackware/addon/slacky/slackware-13.0/:CUSTOM SOURCE=http://darkstar.ist.utl.pt/slackware/addon/slacky/slackware-13.0/:CUSTOM SOURCE=http://darkstar.ist.utl.pt/slackware/addon/slacky/slackware-13.0/:CUSTOM any pointers guys?
