@brokenman: Sweet, I still need to talk to you about the optifest and libs.txt files to make sure I'm doing it right. I think I'm doing something wrong.
@francios: My long term goal is to make a slack package for every slackbuild available and along the way I am making slackbuild scripts for packages that are not available on slackbuild. My short term goal was to add every studioware package (audio, video and graphic editing tools), which took 3 and a half days of headaches but they are all there now.
@fanthom: I've developed a real love for slackware since using porteus (nothing sexual... yet) Switching the package manager to slackware packages was brilliant and USM is genius, it has been a real game changer.
I'll be in amsterdam next week and will setup a couple dedicated build computers at my girlfriends place, she probably wont be very impressed, but I didn't grow a linux beard for nothing!
