Slackware 10

#1
Has anyone here ever used it? If so, does it run pretty much like Redhat, or totally different? I am going to be using it because it supports NTFS unlike Redhat....

Redhat supports NTFS, you just have to install the support. Linux is linux, but slack and redhat have different package management systems.

Yeah, RedHat can read from NTFS partition as well. Might need a kernel recompile...I'm not quite sure.

RedHat also tends to have a more wizard-based approach to configuring the system. Slack tends to involve config file editing a lot more often. Whether this is good or bad is a matter of personal preference really.

Yes, you need to enable support for mounting NTFS partitions when you compile the kernel, that is all you really need to build in support for NTFS on Redhat. I'm not even sure if the kernel that comes with Slackware 10 even has support for NTFS built in.

can anyone tell me why 'make oldconfig' does not boot properly when recompiling a new kernel?
Did you make sure everything was set correctly? If it doesn't boot, what error are you getting?

you can't use make oldconfig with different version like 2.4.x kernels and 2.6.x kernels. I've always had problems with it, only takes about 10 minutes to config a kernel after you know what you are doing
