5-0 out of 5 stars the "Hacker's Unix" of Linux distributions
One day there was a little boy named Linus Torvalds. He liked to play with computers and get them to do things. And on one very special and fateful day, he was astounded by a friend of his who was using something called UNIX. It was better, faster and did more than anything he'd ever seen before. "Where can I get this UNIX?" he asked? "And for how much?" That day he learned that not everyone could use UNIX. It was expensive. So, being a savvy, industrius and inventive little tyke, Linus set about writing his own version. It would be called LINUX, it would be every ounce as powerful, and would be free! And every little boy and girl could make their own improvements because he would give away the source code! ...Of all the LINUX distributions, SLACKWARE has been defined as the most 'UNIX'-like. It is also among the oldest, most developed and often the most advanced of the LINUX flavors. All of that aside, I found it to be the most useful way to learn to use LINUX. Let me explain... The installer is a script, with a less than impressive 'DOS' looking interface. But do not let the look fool you. Under the hood, it is every ounce the musclebound goliath you want it to be. Don't judge a distribution based on this; they may look different, but most installers have the same general set of options. Pay attention to the screen when linux is booting whether off of floppies or CD. This will tell you some valuable things (like what additional kinds of starage devices the kernel has already recognized in your machine). This makes less work and less confusion later on. If you have another drive with Windows on it, SLACKWARE can usually detect it and make it available from within your LINUX session. If you can set up SLACKWARE, you will do fine. Setting up XWindows is a great first lesson in your new environment. Find out what kind of hardware you have in your machine. SLACKWARE takes nothing for granted. You will need to tell XWindows what kind of mouse, video card and monitor you have, and d which display settings you would like to use. Why all the fuss? When you are done you will already have a good working knowledge of how LINUX and XWindows works. Using SLACKWARE means that you have a better idea of what's going on inside LINUX. Other distributions tend to remove you from the command prompt, which is LINUX in it's truest form. This means that you don't really get to see how things work, and you're not 'really learning' anything but the difference between Windows and XWindows. XWindows is not an operating System. It is a Shell or window manager. Explorer.exe and it's related components are the Windows Shell (the start button, Task Bar, System Tray, Desktop and its own kind of Window Manager). This is where the similarities end. LINUX is a much more powerful OS than Windows. Hands Down. The operating system is the command prompt. You need to learn the LINUX command prompt in order to understand how LINUX works. This will help you know what's wrong when something doesn't work, and it will empower you with a dynamic command of the LINUX OS. You almost can't set up SLACKWARE without actually learning how it works. The books are fine and the 'man' command can save your life, but nothing is as rewarding as realizing that you are the reason it works. The learning curve here 'is' the reward. Other distributions do not offer this kind of trial-by-fire approach, but when you come out on the other side of the installation of other distributions, you haven't learned much, if anything. Q) Why learn SLACKWARE? A) It's the Most like UNIX. It costs next to nothing. And it is a first rate powerhouse of an OS. Oh yeah, and you might actually 'learn' LINUX. SLACKWARE is for those of us who want to know how things work and how to 'make' things work. like what, you ask? Almost 90% of the internet is composed of UNIX or LINUX clients and servers. No kidding, when asked what he thought of the growing public interest in the internet, Bill Gates said, 'It's a phase'...'that will pass'. Boy, he was wrong on a GALACTIC scale! But this gave LINUX developers the opportunity to write the protocols and environments that are the internet as we know it. LINUX out-sold Windows in Japan last year in new OS purchases. Why? You can make LINUX anything you want it to be. Router (internet traffic) software and Tivo (record days of Television at a time digitally) machines and the SONY PlayStation2 (Everything from videogames to DVD player to internet box+ a lot LOT more) software development kit use LINUX. For example, after Microsoft had owned HotMail for awhile, they decided that it looked silly for them to be running a mail service on LINUX. So they set everything up on WindowsNT. And crashed for three straight days. Now it is being run on LINUX again. Enough said. If you do not want to know how things work, but want to use a powerful distribution, use something else. But if you are serious about 'learning' LINUX, SLACKWARE is as close to UNIX as you can get. And that's what's keeping us all connected.

4-0 out of 5 stars Choose your Slack carefully!
It isn't clear from the product description if this is the CDRom only or the book and CDRom. Locally the CD Rom only goes for ...and the book and cdrom for ...[$10 more], so I suspect this may be the CD Rom only.

I have the Dummies version, which just came out May 2000. The book is great! Not as dummed down as most dummies books. It sells for ... on Amazon.

There was a review on the Slackware distro book (with CD Rom) in boxed set in Maximum Linux. They said the book was a great improvement over the prior book. I haven't seen it, so I can't comment. However, for what its worth the books that came with other distros - Mandrake, Suse and Caldera - were pretty useless. Too detailed and arcane for a beginner (like me) and not comprehensive enough for someone more experienced.

The moral dilemma is that the only way to support Slackware, which is apparently really just one guy who works really really hard, is to buy a distro from Slackware, i.e., this distro or the one with the book. Buying the Dummies book doesn't compensate the guy who maintains Slackware at all, since there are no royalties due to the GNU license and the only way to pay your bills is to sell an actual product, that is to say, this kit.

I have probably, at this point, put more money into supporting Linux distros than most, since I buy boxed sets rather than books, or disks from reprint houses etc. But with Slackware the Dummies book was just too helpfull...

5-0 out of 5 stars Slack rules.
Slackware is the greatest Linux distro available. Within a few minutes a person can have a fully working e-mail, web, ftp, and telnet server running. Add to that the rock-solid stability of Linux, this baby is good.

5-0 out of 5 stars All you need from a good operating system
I successfully installed this product more than once and without any particular problems. A simple personal computer can become a full featured UNIX workstation with all that is required in a good, stable OS. It is true that some knowledge of how the system works is required in order to manage the whole "business" of configuring everything you need, but I always found all the information I needed in the HOWTO files, included in the distribution. The KDE Graphic environment meets all the needs of even the most demanding users, and it is largely customizable. If you just think that C, C++, Fortran compilers are included, toghether with powerfull editors like emacs and xemacs, there is no comparison with any other "Windows" equivalent, with their "outrageous" prices. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars A little hard work never killed anyone :-)
Slackware 9.1 would be a bit too daunting for the beginner to cope with. That said, it's not too difficult, given a couple of trial and error installs along with perseverance to get familiarised with things.

Three are as many packages provided as most other distros, so there's not much to complain about on that score. Desktop options are all available by using the XDM , before startx, and selecting which one you prefer to use. Gnome, KDE, fvwm2, blackbox, fluxbox, etc. They're all there if you use the default option at the installation stage. KDE is the best of the bunch, and runs more quickly than Gnome. If a package isn't there, it's a matter of getting the source code and compiling it.

An essential addition is the package manager utility SWARET. This is available in the EXTRAS FOLDER on disk 2. This utility works in conjunction with pkgtools to keep track of any upgrades and dependencies. For instructions go to swaret.org .

Using the CUPS print server and gimp-print will provide high quality printing for the majority of printers out there. To set CUPS up, launch your web-browser, input http://localhost:631 and use the web-links to add and configure your printer, which will now show up in kprinter if CUPS is selected.

Installing over a previous Linux install requires that you overwrite the hard drive with something like Autoclave to obliterate any files. If you don't do this, a lot of instability and hassle will ensue, I find.

When shutting down, be sure to wait until ALL processes have terminated, otherwise you can easily blitz the system. Also be sure to unmount any floppy or cdrom drives to avoid hassle with error messages about file systems not properly handled, or a blown system.

The only major omission was no Acrobat Reader in the packages. You can download the 5.08 version from the Adobe site, and place the .tgz in a new directory Then launch a terminal and gunzip the .tgz , extract the contents with the tar xvf command, and install using the shell script provided. For hyperlinks in a .pdf to function, you will also have to have Netscape installed, since only Netscape and Explorer are supported.

Once up and running, the Slackware user will have a good solid system, but one which will need a fair knowledge of command line instructions, and the ability to find and edit configuration files.

2-0 out of 5 stars It's what it promisses to be
I have been a Linux veteran for almost 4 years now and I have found Slackware to get worse with every release.

It may not be that Slackware is getting worse, but the competition is getting better. Slackware was originally the "unix-like" linux distribution, which translates into being the "geek-friendly" linux. Basically, this means that this distribution will not be holding your hand like other bad Distributions like Mandrake and Red Hat do. Now, however, there doesn't seem any point in getting Slackware anymore.

As people usually learn, when you install a distro that is more "command-line only", you usually get more advanced features and customizability. However, with Slackware 9.1, you simply do not get this anymore. To begin, you are limited to Slackware-only packages during install. This means that you do not get a very large choice of which packages you want on your system. For example, one cannot chose a Window Manager like Enlightenment because it is simply not there. However, they do give you the unecessary KDE and GNOME (which are both window managers that slackware users would not use) and TWM. They also give you Fluxbox, which is the best Window manager to chose from. Secondly, there is just NO package management system on Slackware. This is something that the development team should have conjured up when Debian came out with the 'apt-get' feature and when Gentoo came out with the 'emerge' feature. Both of these are commands that allow you to install packages from source, while also installing all of that package's dependancies. This means that all of the packages are built exactly for your hardware, and you don't get any more software than necessary on your system, and no less. Slackware really suffers from this because there is no package management present. There are plenty 3rd party ones like 'slapt-get', 'swaret', and 'emerde', but all fail because, again, these 3rd party ones only support/install Slackware-Only packages. There is really no point in doing this, then, becuase the number of packages in Slackware is very small compared to Debian's 8,000 and Gentoo's 11,000. And as mentioned before, you aren't getting any real speed increases by this command-line distribution, but you are getting lots of unecessary headaches with a terrible package management system and a very limited install. One last thing to be noted is that Slackware is behind in technology. While Amazon may say the 2.4.22 kernel is "advanced", it is actually old school now compared to the latest and greatest kernel, 2.6.5 - which is the absolute best kernel I have ever used.

If you want a distribution that is going to be user-friendly but still on the high-performance side, you can go check out Arch Linux or Debian. If you want a high-end performance distribution, then you should really go with Gentoo. Gentoo is currently the best for the power-user because, in Gentoo, you build every known package on your system from scratch. This means the kernel, Xfree86 (or Xorg), and even Window managers. Again, this means you get no more packages than necessary, and no less. The system is perfectly tailored for your hardware.

I hope this review helped for some. Slackware used to be the best of the best, but times have changed and there is no reason to get Slack anymore. Slackware tries to be unique in allowing users to have a very unorganized setup, but this is a problem because Slackware uses packages customized for Slackware, and using source packages can result in build errors and dependancy conflicts.

It's too bad Slackware just let themselves go like that.

5-0 out of 5 stars Stick with the best
If Linux is what you want then go with the oldest distribution around. Slackware has been with us for 10 years and keeps getting better with every release. These are not 4 or 5 times a year like the other distros!

Although install is still text it is very easy to follow and getting a system up and running is a matter of minutes. Most everything (if not all) is recognized by the setup program so on startup all is well.

On first login you won't have a graphical login. But that is easy to remedy. Just put a line into the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file that goes like this:

/opt/kde/bin/kdm (if you chose KDM as your window manager)

or use

/usr/bin/gdm (if you chose GNOME as your window manager)

or /usr/bin/X11/xdm if you did not install KDE or GNOME.

and if you don't want to do any of the above, log in and type

startx

and the GUI will start up.

I've used this distro for close to 10 years along with FreeBSD. It is not bloated, it is fast, and there is lot of help on forums and search engines if you run into trouble. Highly recomend it. And if you like it, support Slackware, get a subscription. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Simple, easy, for Newbies to Linux.
I have used some version of Linux on my home computer for about two years now and I can honestly say that Linux, to include Linux Mandrake 7.1 has come a long way. Linux Mandrake 7.1 provides the user with one of the easiest installs and setups. Compared to Suse's YAST2 and Caldera's Lizard - Mandrake has configured a good setup tool.

Linux Mandrake 7.1 also provides several good programs and applications that will help the new Linux user get accustomed to the world of Linux. New users who are coming from the Windows OSes will feel a bit easier using Linux Mandrake.

On my machine I tired several different installs, using different cards. I swapped out my Voodoo Banshee card and threw in a generic 8MB video card - it found the card but there was a huge difference in the display quality of my installation process. I then re-installed it using two different sound cards, a Sound blaster Live! and a ESS Generic sound card - both were found but the ESS had more support and installed easier.

Partitioning was the easiest it has ever been - gone are the days of having to learn the commands of FDISK or partionmagic. The partioning of the Linux Mandrake also makes it easy to install DOS/WIN partions.

Although I liked Mandrake 7.1 and I would recommend it for novice users - I found that an install from Suse 7.0 was cleaner and provided me with the applications, especially the server applications and programs, that I use on a regular basis.

Mandrake 7.1 is a good place to start. The price is amazingly reasonable and there is more support in publications for Red Hat compatible products -so it is a no brainer for newbie Linux users - go with Mandrake.

5-0 out of 5 stars Linux-Mandrake is the best of both worlds.
I have tried 2.1, RedHat 5.0, 5.2, 6.1, 6.2, Corel Linux 1.0, Caldera OpenLinux 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, and Linux Mandrake 7.0 and 7.1. Of all these, Linux Mandrake 7.1 is what got me to settle down and actually start using Linux instead of playing with it.

I had to get rid of the cruddy winmodem I had just bought, but it was a pleasure to experience Linux fully once I had rid myself of it and bought a real modem.

Linux Mandrake makes things easy. I don't want to spend hours configuring everything right off the bat. My aim is not to become a Linux guru. I just want a decent OS that works. As time goes by, I'll learn the rest, but for now I just want to be able to boot up in a reasonable amount of time, and not crash constantly, and not cost an arm and a leg for a bug infested waste of time, money and disk space like Windows.

If you feel similarly, and you can read (there's books, web sites and documentation all over the place if you have a question), then Linux Mandrake is for you.

The price is reasonable. It works. It comes with everything and then some. It's easy to use. It handles more load on the same hardware. It's much faster. And you don't need to reboot unless you want to. Nuff said.

5-0 out of 5 stars What a difference!
Tired with all the trouble of Windows I wanted to take the risk of changing for a new OS. A friend recommended me Mandrake since I've never used or seen Linux and I was amazed how easy it was.

First it recognized all my hardware, even my HP CD writer. Also using it wasn't hard or complicated. I strongly recommend this product to people that have no idea of Linux. It has never shown an error or illegal operation, as Windows constantly does.

I even want to get in the developer stage but that will take some time. Thanks for bringing us users a strong and confident OS.

5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to Install, easy to use
Mandrake 7.1 installs nearly everything automatically. Its configuration tools make updating your system pretty easy. One caveat is that if your monitor is not in the monitors database you will learn more about your monitor than you wanted to know.

If you have an inexpensive win modem you will want to get a full hardware modem. If they plug into a PCI slot they're Win modems, if they plug into an ISA slot they're hardware modems. Best Data and Creative labs both make 56K ISA modems that work under Linux.

The installer will resize a windows partition and set up linux partition for you. You can also use lnx4win which will make a linux file system inside a windows file. You can then install without changing any partitions.

There are many excellent How-To documents included.

5-0 out of 5 stars A great distro for the new and experience user alike
As a long time RedHat user I decided to try Mandrake which is built upon the RH distro. I was pleasently surprised and I'm now a convert. The installation process is straight forward and includes an easy to use GUI to do the dirty work. Once I installed it I found that a lot of the goodies I've collected over the years was already installed! I've installed this on several desktops and on two laptops without a hitch, I highly recommend it. ... Read more

I received this product as a gift for Christmas. The manuals were not very helpful. It attempts to tell you ways to have both Windows and Linux on the same computer, but unless you are very lucky it doesn't work. I now cannot use my windows 98 OS and I can't get rid of Linux. I have contacted their "support" through email over a week ago and still have heard no reply. THIS IS NOT FOR AMATEURS!

5-0 out of 5 stars If you own a Mac, you need this software ...
Some purists out there believe that the PowerPC processor (the processor used in Apple hardware) is superior to Intel's processors in performance. And though Linux has been optimized for Intel, there is a Linux distro made especially for the PowerPC processor that is worthy of your consideration: Yellow Dog Linux.

Yellow Dog is a port of Red Hat Linux for the PowerPC. Complete with the Anaconda installer, Yellow Dog Linux comes with the same great software that's found on any Linux distro. It's easy to set up and use, too. Just format the hard drive, answer a few questions and the installer takes care of the rest. Couldn't be easier!

If your old Mac is sitting around with a legacy operating system from Apple, give it new life by throwing Yellow Dog on it. Makes a great server or functions nicely as a stable and secure desktop. I use it on my blue and white iMac G3 and it makes the hardware really come alive.

Simply put, if you like Linux and own a Mac, then you need this software. Highly recommended. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Great OS, no documentation.
NetBSD has been around for years and the fact that it has been successfully ported to many different architectures attests to its cleanliness of design. It offers all the features of a powerful OS and none of the frills--which is left for the user to install. My only complaint with this product is that there is no userâ''s manual with it. Why pay so much money for something you can download from the Web for free? Wasabi plans on providing a userâ''s manual "in the future" but there is no telling when or if this will happen.

Other than that, I was able to easily install NetBSD on my old Micron Pentium 133 notebook with its cracked, nearly unreadable, screen and dead CDROM drive. By consulting various online sources I was able to get X-Windows running and figure out that I had to modify some config files to get basic TCP/IP services running (which suprised me since I installed the BSD packages using ftp). Being impatient with having to search through so much on-line documentation to get simple functions working and not having used Unix for a few years, I ran out and bought a book with the FreeBSD distribution. FreeBSD did not recognize my my PCMCIA interface properly so I was not able to install it using ftp. I am back to using NetBSD with the FreeBSD manual as my guide.
