Slackware Niceities

October 18, 2007 at 8:34 pm Leave a comment

I’m starting to miss xorgsetup and some of the other little helpful scripts that come with Slackware. I also miss how all the Slackware config files are nice and well commented and everything basically works out of the box.

Really the only reason I like arch is because it’s much easier to start with a minimal system and build your way up. I also really like pacman, but not as much as the simplicity of pkgtools. Pacman made system updates really easy, but on Slackware I really never had a need to update. I also like the ability to get my package from a single source and not have to track them down across the internet.
