I'm just curious if anyone on the forum uses Slackware.
There are at least 2 on here that use slackware including myself . previously i've tried Zenwalk, Zencafe Simply mephis, puppy, Anti-x , Mint ,Salixos plus i few more i can't remember. The only issue i came acrosss was with 32 bit 14.2 bit slackware having a try with laravel- basically the approach with htat php framework is to go virtual. INstall virtual box etc. On one package therev was only support for 64 bit .Apart from that i see no reason to try any other distro
I used zenwalk many years ago and got to it via Zencafe which i think doesn't exist anymore when i tried running an Internet cafe Ghana. I moved from Zencafe to slackware via salixos and a few others' see no reason yet to give up on slackwareI tried Zenwalk about a year ago.
Couldn't get the package manager to work properly. I think it had a bug.
Did the pkg mgr work for you captain-sensible?
Did you create the efi partition with g-parted or did you use the partition mgr that comes with Slackware?i've just done a new install - i bought a Hewlet packard 64gig that had Windows 10 on it. Dilemma was Windows would need 30gig i've been told, install slackware with a bit of room , log files etc 20 gig . So i wiped the whole thing.

Couple of things i re-learned i wiped everything so had to create 100Mb of code ef00 for new uefi boot. First i went to bios and disabled secure boot , then created the efi. For install i found the dvd install version of Slackware has everything boot up and tools and packages. now using ti to access this site
