It is nice to use Slackware because it doesn't do funky stuff with
software. qmail installs fairly easily and fits in decently well. Oh, it
also works great on slower hardware because you can strip services to
the bare essentials easily and thus leave more resources for the actual
functions it needs to do.
and boots in 1/8th of the time RHES/CentOS does :)
The only downside to Slackware is that it doesn't use PAM, so you need
to make local login accounts. Personally, I don't like PAM (it has had
many security issues in the past) and qmail doesn't use it, so it isn't
a big thing. Also, Slackware doesn't hold your hand on dependencies, but
if you are a decent system administrator, you shouldn't have problems
Eh? for what do you create local login accounts?
