Revised Slackware keeps it simple

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 72.8.81.34] on December 23, 2008 08:19 PM
One of the biggest criticisms of Slackware is that it doesnt have a package manager that resolves dependencies. However, you do have Slackbuilds.org that makes it easy to install software and lets you know of any dependency that it requires. Another point is if you do a full Slackware install, it installs most development libraries. I find that most 3rd party software I install, including games require none, or only 1 or 2 dependencies on Slackware.
