Re: Already have it running.
"Slackware is my primary desktop"
Sooo, that has changed. May I ask how much effort it took?
I'll be honest, I don't even run Debian anymore, strictly Ubuntu flavors. Granted, I haven't ran Slackware since back in 2004, but I did run it as a primary machine to write a SCSI driver for about 8 months, and it wasn't at all enjoyable. I had a old Voodoo graphics card that would in no way run past 640x480. I had to stop using my Logitech keyboard because I couldn't get the USB to power past BIOS. Actual SCSI support was limited on speeds (at least for the Ricoh I was sampling). But, yeh, I did get the driver to work.
You hardcore C coders can go on with your bad selves, I'm just too old and lazy to tweak Unix anymore. But I'm still surprised you're running Slackware as a PRIMARY desktop. When I think primary, I think graphics, sounds, wireless keyboards, multiple displays...the works. Have you really set all that up on Slackware? I wonder because if I get bored and attempt to write a driver (need one for a ELO touch screen right now), I'll probably skip Debian all together and go back to something like Slackware.
