Back on Slackware …

December 10, 2006 – 06:59 by Adnan Hodzic

It might be something called like … some kind of crisis or something. I was in a state, where I wanted to live in present day. Have groovy desktops, have the state of art package manager, get and upgrade and do to your package what you want. Of course I’m talking about Mandriva, and in all that there are things missing.

I’d just best describe it af is someone made a copy of you, he done all the make up, you’re suddenly grown up and etc … But there’s something missing, and that thing is called that’s really not you as you want yourself.

Just sitting there, and everything just working like that … I don’t know … so yea I snapped. Took Slackware 11 dvd, erased the whole disk and hey started installing it. Just 2-3 days after Slackware 11 came out, I was really disappointed, but disappointed is gone. Slackware 11 is really horrible, it just wants to fuck your brains out. Maybe Patrick just thought, lets remind these guys what they really now about Linux.

My gf, even made a bet with me that I’ll go back on Mandriva, and yea she said that she wants me to install Mandriva on her new computer. See that’s kind of hard to explain, but in Mandriva, even tho it’s really beautiful, being in this good old plastik theme in Slackware, surrounded nothing by code is just like her looking at the cool beryl desktops.

Ok so what do I have now? Well of course, since Slackware loves you too, it wont let you go to sleep, so you’ll end up being up whole night, compiling kernel, remembering commands you’ve forgotten.

Right now it’s 8:13am on sunday morning, few hours ago when I was taking my only break to get up of the chair in hours to take a piss … ventilation system in the bathroom is done in a way in which it’s making isolation pretty bad, so if you’re screaming in the bathroom, and I’m in my bathroom I can hear you, vice versa.

So who is left in those hours? No one. While I was in the bathroom, I heard coughs, bad ones. That same guy who was coughing, lives above me, and is dying of a lung cancer. So who’s really left … awake … yea you’re virtual irc friend, of course those that use Slackware too. Staying up to 6 or whatever the fuck AM on their universities doing protocols. And if you’d leave one Slacker without that … that’s how you get slacker to have control.

So what do we do? Nothing, just bullshit, spending our saturday nights on irc, bullshitting whose code is better, making fun of everyone who’s not using Slackware, being in each others home, (read machines, computers).

In the end, I dont know what we turn to be … whatever.

Maybe I’m just too tired and talking crap, but I really missed this beauty. For truly I dont know one distro that’s just stayed so true linux. Now you shut up, and go do math or reconfigure your kernel … if there’s nothing better to do, find someone to compile his kernel … MetalKitty you’re mine *-*
