General Info

Slackware mirror(s) are used here as alternate to 'slackware.com'. Which at this time is having issues.

Please consider Oregon State mirror or AlphaGeek's list of mirrors usage instead of the official 'slackware.com' web site at this time

You can get a list of mirror links at Get Slackware Linux:'Slackware® Mirrors' section.

Please check that your issue hasn't been mentioned in some of the official documentation. Good places to start might be:

Stable
Current
Perhaps more important than with the stable version, check your issue hasn't been mentioned in some of the official documentation.

If you're after more information with regards Slackware in general, rather than the recent issues people have had, then head over to Slackware-Links.

xorg.conf

  • With the new version of Slackware, there's no need to have an xorg.conf by default. This is documented in the CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT file.
  • You will need the xorg.conf for anything that is not automatically configured. E.G. Manufacturer's Graphics Drivers, Special input devices, etc. Only define the sections you need! A fully defined xorg.conf file may prevent your mouse and keyboard from functioning properly if a few special options are not used.
