I am now running Salix on my laptop and plain old Slackware on my
main server. The environment is rcck-solid. I upgraded the kernel
The main annoyance is that most packages are either .dep or .rpm. That sometimmes
means that I have to install from source. However, most of the time, there is
someone who has done the work for me and II can easily install the .tgz.
Due to the much simpler installation method, the actual installation
of .tgz packages is blazingly fast, often less than half the time it took
to install a .rpm.
I'm less and less depending on Salix, and more and more on Slackware.
So Salix actually helped me to go back to the Slack!
