Used it on FreeBSD for years. Used on Ubuntu since 16.04. It makes life really easy, if you have anything other than the most basic storage needs. Raid is a snap. Snapshots make experimentation a low risk proposition. Compression, where effective, makes the system feel much faster.
I want to ask the following problem. I need to compile Qt-4.5.3, static libraries in Slackware 14.2 RC2 but I get a compilation error of qtpnghandler and not know why. This version of Qt I've compiled static libraries in previous versions of distribution 14.0 and 14.1, I do not know why it does not work.
Искам да попитам за следния проблем. Необходимо ми е да компилирам Qt-4.5.3, със статични библиотеки, при Slackware 14.2 RC2 но ми излиза грешка при компилация на qtpnghandler и не знам защо. Тази версия на Qt съм я компилирал със статични библиотеки при предишните версии на дистрибуцията 14.0 и 14.1, тук не знам защо не се получава.
you are compiling in the gcc 4.7 and the 4.8 gcc. Things have really changed. qt-4.5.3 was written with gcc 3.8 to 4.3. I think 4.8.2 in slackware would be the last ones to compile that. the 5.3.0 gcc with with the latest qt-development I really do see some serious issues. Such as the 5.3.0 is directed more at gnu++11. Off subject but. Trying to compile qt static since qt-4.6 is pretty much impossible. post the complete error.
with the open source driver you use the adjustment on you monitor or lap top. propitiatory installed drvers use their set up program for videos it is in the settings of you program you are using

About this community
Welcome to the Google+ Slackware Community!
What is Slackware Linux?
The Official Release of Slackware Linux by Patrick Volkerding is an advanced Linux operating system, designed with the twin goals of ease of use and stability as top priorities. Including the latest popular software while retaining a sense of tradition, providing simplicity and ease of use alongside flexibility and power, Slackware brings the best of all worlds to the table.
The Slackware Philosophy:
Since its first beta release in April of 1993, the Slackware Linux Project has aimed at producing the most "UNIX-like" Linux distribution out there. Slackware complies with the published Linux standards, such as the Linux File System Standard. We have always considered simplicity and stability paramount, and as a result Slackware has become one of the most popular, stable, and friendly distributions available.
We hope you enjoy using Slackware Linux as a member of this community!
La prossima release di #Slackware 14.2 si fa ancora attendere ma Pat e la comunità #Slackware non sono rimasti con le mani in mano. Il susseguirsi degli aggiornamenti nel Changelog fanno sperare ad una imminente rilascio della release.
i'd love to run slackware on my pizero as well as my pi2b and pib+, I haven't got a pi3 yet. I can't access either site though. Also I have some peripherals (slice of relay and sensehat, picam, noirepicam and new model picam8Gpix) for which support comes in newest raspberrian, so it makes it more long-winded to add support all these to slackware.
Try UEFI first, if it doesn't work BIOS should. So far I've only had one UEFI/Slackware conflict, and that was on an AsRock motherboard. Be prepared for the UEFI install to require GPT partitioning and a small ~100MB fat32 partition on your boot drive. If that sounds like something you don't want to deal with, stick with BIOS.
Just wanted to express how thankful I am for this project. Traditionally, I've mainly been on Solus and Ubuntu but after looking for a more stable system I always come back to Slackware. Here's to many more years of Slacking! 💚✌
+Morten Juhl-Johansen Zőlde-Fejér The same is in my case. At present I have installed on 3 machines, 2 in dual boot and one in a dedicated 2007 Pentium D desktop PCs. I think that Slackware would lose its purity if Patric decides to make any changes to its originality, like, graphical installation and the like.
