post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've been messing around in Ubuntu 64 Dapper for about a month and I was dual booting Ubuntu k7 before that. Now I'm bout to do a clean install on a seperate HD and I'm considering other distro's, namly fedora and slackware mabey gentoo? I also just might dl Ubuntu 64 Edgy. I'm just curious about what else there is. Any sugestions?

I'd stay away from 64 bit distro's, their still lacking in driver support. All those distros are nice though. I find Ubuntu to be very easy to use. Tried FC6 a few times but had nothing but bad luck. I know a few people here though love it. I'm currently trying Slackware 11, its fast and I'm loving it.

I would stay away from the 64 bit distro's, but that SMP folding is the way to go. I want to try FC6 but the d/l time is horrible, even when using bittorrent. I think it's their server. D/l the live cd right now.
I have a few questions about Slackware. What kernel can it support? 2.6? How can you configure it?.....I mean how customizable is it?

The most recent version of Slack uses the 2.4 kernel, but has full support for 2.6 in it's extra repos.

Slackware is very customizable, one of the more customizable distros out there, aside from Gentoo. All major WM's are supported and readily available, and most programs have Slackware packages available.
