  • Installing Slashcode is a NIGHTMARE. The documentation is TERRIBLE. Even the "idiot's guide" is hard compared to the Drupal or PHPnuke install. I will be running a webhosting service soon on a dedicated 1.5ghz server with 1gb of bandwidth. If you are interested, contact us at
    • What kind of crack are you smoking?

      How hard is "make install" then "install-slashsite" ??

      Just because a system doesn't have the software that's required by slash to install, that's not slash's fault.

      That's like me bitching about having to install crap to get live journal installed and running.

      Yeah, it'd be nice if the distro's came with better LAMP setups out of the box...

      • suggesting we come up with just that - a "slash" friendly distro distributed by iso image.

        It wasn't accepted. :-)

        • That wouldn't be too difficult, actually. Take each new release of Slackware and make the subtle changes necessary to include slash (including the latest Apache and properly-compiled mod_perl as well as slash itself). And while at it, strip all the gui stuff out of it; slash is intended to be run on servers, so make the distro a server distro. I can see it now, SlashLinux!

          Seriously, though, I don't think it could be that difficult. But I've never worked with creating a custom distro. Just my $0.02.

        • Not that I'm got a lot of experience building distro's...

          but I don't find it all that hard to grab the tarballs to perl, mod_perl, apache and mysql and install.

          Honestly, the most difficult problem I've had with it, that I can even recall, is a library problem on redhat 9 after I installed perl from the tarball (after removing the rpms). Apps were missing

          Redhat's pretty close. W/ v9 and 8.x you could get away with firing up cpan and installing the modules it was missing.

          I can't vouch for any

          • Hmm. Well, I'm better at that stuff, and not so good at perl, yet. :-) I'm all for making a modified Slackware/Slash Distro, with preinstalled slash options... It could happen...
