I did try to install slackware 12 two days ago, but was unsuccessful twice due to the failure or error message in writing lilo to MBR. This was very dissapointing to me. Zenwalk and the newest VL 5.8 Gold worked great on that same machine with the install.
I have tried liloconfig, etc, with no success. I gave up on that. I am still with Linux Mint now - One of my new favorites, but I hunger to be back with VL.
VL 5.8 Gold is soon coming back on my systems. I like the KISS mentality and miss that about VL. Slack 12 seems promising, but if I cannot install it to test it out, I cannot be impressed. I like the fact that Pat has finally gone with the 2.6 kernel and with and up to date xorg 7.2... This was what inspired me the most to try it out.
All I can ask is: When is VL 6 coming out? That is my most awaited distro for months now.. Or since last year.
Thanks Moe for the xorg upgrade guide again. VL forever.
