    Poll: Re: How do you lot upgrade?

    I have way too much music (over 24 GB of it) on this machine to do a fresh install every time. I haven't done a fresh reinstall since Intrepid, and the upgrades usually go with little to no hitches.

    Poll: [SOLVED] Re: Best linux distro for me

    If you want power and versatility, you can't go wrong with Slackware. Slack doesn't even start the window manager until you tell it to (startx does it). It's considered one of the 'advanced' Linux...

    [SOLVED] Re: Stop Tor from autorunning

    I got it: you need to enable IP forwarding in Slack. Run as root:

    sysctl -p /etc/sysctl.confIf you don't have /etc/sysctl.conf, you'll need to create it and put

    I know what you mean, and I'm having the same problem. unchecking "start panning" won't fix it. I'm working on (read: googling) a fix to the problem. If I find anything I'll post what I find.
