I am really getting at just how slackware compatible Vector is. I am looking for a Slackware compatible distro (not smart enough or courageous enough to run Slackware itself) that I can use Slackware packages on if not available through the distros repositories. I want KDE, too.
I tried Absolute Linux, but I don't like light window managers and I don't like Lilo
Zenwalk is not Slack compatible anymore, if I understand it correctly. Not wild about XFCE but it is OK
Wolvix killed my MBR about three times in a row, maybe later.
Goblinx killed my MBR last time around.
I like Vector standard, I used it way back at around 3.2 or so and I recently installed the 5.9 RC or beta. I really prefer KDE to XFCE by leaps and bounds so I am waiting for the KDE version - SOHO - but the Slackware compatability question is my last hurdle, so to speak.
