Welcome to slackwiki! Feel free to Create an account or log in and edit any of the pages, or add your own (see Starting A New Page). Come talk to some of us in ##slackware on When saving changes, please provide a brief summary of your changes in the box provided - it's nice for those sad people who follow RecentChanges via RSS. Any questions about the wiki? See the User's Guide.


After a long time and numerous upgrades, the DB finally caved in on itself. This is a fresh start. The old Wiki can be found here. The data is still there, any help copying the old pages over here to the new Wiki would be greatly appreciated. UPDATE: Pages beginning with letters A through S have been copied.

We're now sharing with several other Slackware projects such as SlackSec, the Slackware Book Project, and Slamd64. Hopefully this will mean a more reliable and faster wiki --FredEmmott 19:42, 2 May 2005 (GMT)

We're back onto my little UML temporarily, but I've finally judged the contest, congratulations to Marcus. Next artwork contest comming soon, please use the main talk page for suggestions on more technical contests --FredEmmott 18:36, 24 Feb 2005 (GMT)

Thanks to RackSpace and Michael Shuler - they've generously donated a dedicated server to, which slackwiki is sharing --FredEmmott 15:06, 1 Dec 2004 (CST)

We are now sharing this server with - security updates in Pat's absence --FredEmmott 22:22, 19 Nov 2004 (GMT)

We should not have as many problems with server now - I have no choice but to run debian on this server, and apparantly they missed backporting a security patch, so it's now on traditional non-debianified apache 1.3.33 :) --FredEmmott 18:03, 2 Nov 2004 (GMT)

Please feel free to bring our old pages over from the old site --FredEmmott 21:23, 31 Oct 2004 (GMT)
