Linux Counter Data
« on: November 13, 2011, 01:14:06 pm »
I ran the updated linux counter script on this machine and found something odd in there.  Perhaps It's correct and I am in error, but should the distribution not say Vector Linux or some such?

Code: [Select]
The following data will be sent to the counter:

The script doesn't know how to identify a VectorLinux install, so it's only searching for a Slackware identifier (your /etc/slackware-version file).  That's why it says slackware.  Just about every slackware-based distro will have this identifier to indicate the version of the upstream OS the release is based on.
