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.

Anyone have experience with the Thinkpad Yoga's and Slackware? I'm looking into buying either the 12.5" or 14.1" model with Skylake processors. The 12.5" model is Intel only while the 14.1" has an Nvidia 940m as well. I'd be running Slackware Current and possibly some light Steam gaming if I opt for the model with Nvidia graphics.
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.
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.
Esiste un tool per slackware che si occupa di installare le dipendenze di un pacchetto in modo contestuale (al momento stesso)? Ho provato con slackyd e slackpkg ma non mi pare lo facciano. Grazie a chi mi volesse aiutare. Io al momento uso arch linux e debiab ma vorrei mettere a punto anche una slackware.
