    Debian Sarge it is for the time being. I have been planning on going to gentoo but I'm not there yet. Oh and Xebian on the xbox and dynebolic form a live cd from time to time.

    Hey guys, this is my first post :0

    I'm currently using gentoo with kernel 2.6.5. I started out a while back fooling around with linux when redhat 7.1 came out, but at that time I was switching off between windows and linux. I use linux all the time now and don't have windows on my system.

    Linux is so nice I just installed Fedora on my cousins pc(easy distro for her to use.)

    If you use swaret to keep your Slack install up2date, I would advise against the DL install.DL does not keep current as swaret does and certainly doesn't resolve dependencies like swaret. There's very little advantage to DL, other than some eye-candy which can be found in from other sources.

    Cheers JohnT.

    Well I have been using Swaret ever since I started using Slack, and other than the permission changing problems I haven't had any problems what-so-ever.

    If that's the case I think that I will stay with Swaret for now - at least until I have some time to play around with Linux again after my finals. I just need everything to work at the moment!

    MacOS X here. It's my main OS on a flat panel iMac. I do love Linux also, and will be dual booting with Debian PPC sometime in the near future.

    Actually I've been using them together about 6 months now... seems to work ok together.

    Caldera Openlinux-->Redhat 7 & 8-->EvilEntity-->Mandrake-->Gentoo-->Slackware-->Redhat 9--->Fedora--->Gentoo-->Mepis-->Slackware; plus Win95-->Win98-->WinXP-->Win98. Can't seem to make up my mind. :wink:
    And I use slapt-get and swaret both on Slackware. If swaret can't get it, the maybe slapt-get will. If not, download and compile.

    EvilEntity! I thought I was the only phreak around here who has used EvilE. Can't wait for EE 0.3 to come out and by what I've heard it's going to be soon :twisted:
