I don't know what's wrong with my audio basically sound is not working at all. It was working at very first boot after installation of Slackware 64bit version 14.1, but didn't work after second boot onwards and allways shows "Do you want KDE to permanently forget about these devices?".
When i tried to play video with VLC, VLC allways shows,
"Audio output failed:
The audio device "default" could not be used:
No such file or directory."
And "aplay -l" shows "aplay: device_list:268: no soundcards found..."
And "aplay -L" shows,
"null
    Discard all samples (playback) or generate zero samples (capture)"

Please help me to resolve it, I am first time trying Slackware and i am very much like it and thinking this as my final distro but don't want to switch to Arch Linux or somthing else due to this problem.

+Matt Samudio did a series of Slackware videos
covering Slackware packages, Slackbuilds, TWM and another
surprise tiling desktop. 

In this video, he highlights a bad video done on Slackware by an
obvious Windows user. :)

Matt does cite Slackware's staying with UNIX simplicity and
how that differs from other Linux systems. 

I've been writing code since 1975 myself and was a user of one
of the original UNIX simplicity systems.  I'm reminded of Richards
GNU's Not UNIX platform and must say I agree with Richard...
Today's UNIX clones are far from the 70's UNIX in simplicity
but, I would have to agree that perhaps Slackware is the
closest to preserving this posture.  Even though, commands
like 'ls' didn't exist back then and so on and so forth...

I might even not be the first to say that today's Linux is better
than Windows and does more.  In fact, I gave up on Windows NT back in 97.  So, I've been running only Linux since then.

I watched all of Matt's video's and I've learned alot about TWM
and his way of building Slackware packages.  He did a great job.

And after seeing his point of view, I hope you will agree we need
to stop all these windows users from making video's like the one he's
talking about,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, :)  {cough}

Would anyone have a .conkyrc to work with conkyForecastWU they'd be willing to share? Trying to configure something and am new to all things conky.  Thanks!  ETA:  I've got the API. I just need a simple/working conkyrc.

GStreamer packages may be missing. It may also be a permissions problem #SomeBodyHelMe  :'(

Does anyone want to take this repo over (I will transfer it if so)? There is also a SlackBuild on SBo for it (I don't mind maintaining the SlackBuild if someone takes it over, but you can also take that over if wanted). I don't use it anymore.

It needs some updates from upstream that need to be merged. More details if you decide to take it over.  :-)

Just take a look at what this guy did! Quoting:

"i decided to fix all slackbuilds as packages"

His package repository has about, well, the whole damn thing! Wow!

https://slackonly.com/pub/packages/14.1-x86_64/

I was looking for Redis SlackBuilds. I found old ones from +Eric Hameleers​ and others, but this guy has the very last stable packaged and waaaayyyy more. Don't miss his ChangeLog.txt:

https://slackonly.com/pub/packages/14.1-x86_64/ChangeLog.txt

His name is Panagiotis Nikolaou. I don't know him, but already love him!

Impressive work!

EDIT: And he builds to 14.1 x86 and x86_64!!!
Hi and welcome to my blog! One day I was talking with a friend and we had a disagreement about Slackware don't have repository and don't automatically resolve dependencies… Ηe told me that this is a reason a user don't choose Slackware to save time because we need to compile programs not shipped ...

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!

Hi Friends... Why Slackware Linux not defined as default desktop to Mate or Gnome?

Speaking of the knock-offs.  dropline gnome will give you Gnome 3.x and there is a cinnamon port for slackware also.  I suppose Pat dropped Gnome for the same reason these other people forked it.  It was trouble.
Still no word on a unity port for slackware, which would be the 3rd jedi knight of the trio of may the fork be with you...

I simply couldn't resist!

For the FOSS audio geeks out there, here is a nice interview to one of the Calf contributors. Markus is also the author of xplanetFX, traGtor and some other cool FOSS gear.

The interview highlight is (IMHO) how he get involved with Calf.
This month we talked to Markus Schmidt. Markus has been a member of the Calf team since 2009. As well as being the brains behind many of the Calf plugins, Markus is also responsible for the design of every visual aspect of Calf. Hi Markus, thank you for taking the time to do this interview.
