    Old Unix book/Slackware 7.0

    I found some old Linux/Unix books while cleaning the basement, one (the Unix Bible)has a copy of Slackware 7.0 included.
    I'm not very familiar with Slackware, has it changed much since 7.0?

    7.0 is 1999's, I think. There have been some face-liftings (kde instead of gnome and aestethics), but the core system remains unchanged, AFAIK (I wasn't around when 7.0). Slackware has hit 12.0 version recently (July): You'll get some old-fashioned software if you install 7.0.

    Anyway, if you were looking for using the Bible as a reference book to Slackware you can have a newer one for free with Slack book, the official Slackware book. It's not new, but everything it talks about is included in 12.0.

    Thanks, for the input ! I checked out the Slack book and it is interesting!
    Slackware is probably a little too much for me right now!

    Hi,

    Chasing up slackware postings and I saw your message:

    It does not have to be such a terrible experience Print of the installation guide from the cd / dvd and run it from this guide. Disregard fdisk and use cfdisk instead, do a full install and then run kde. This is a legitimate slackware install and will certainly get you off to a flying start with a great distro.

    You think that's air you're breathing now?
