Upgrading to Slackware 12.1

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 41.235.154.215] on June 04, 2008 04:00 AM
I was very enthusiast to try slackware 12.1, but when I tried it..I just decided to give 'Archlinux ' a go instead.. I don't know what exactly went wrong but it was running very slow with KDE .. slower than any other KDE distro I've ever tried !! Archlinux is just simple, optimized for i686 and also make you learn by using it..
However, I do think that if learning is your primary target.. nothing is compared to LinuxFromScratch (LFS) .. you really know what's the role of each package you install and why you need it..
