I made the switch from ubuntu to slackware last night. After installing everything and logging into the root account I tried to update slackware using the command /et/slackpkg/mirrors. It said access denied. I tried searching google and slakware help documentation but I could not get a clear answer. Did I mess up something during the install?
Nevermind, figured it out. nano /etc/slackpkg/mirrors
Glad (nobody) we could help ;)
Cheers - as an Arch user myself, minimal distros are where it's at!
