Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "kdelibs" and "plasma-desktop" packages and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

A clear choice for anyone looking for an 'out of the box' experience with Slackware. Salix is pretty much Slackware, the differences between the two are Salix has a few extras that Slackware does not i.e gslapt package manager, Sourcery SlackBuilds and a slightly easier install process.

Lilo is awesome, sysv is lean and stable, the package management works very well and is reliable - you have multiple choices for installing packages, gslapt, slapt-get, Sourcery, or just compile from source.

I hope that Salix is kept alive as it is an awesome distro, and in my opinion much better than many other distros. I am happy running it next to Slackware as it is quick and convenient while providing a rock solid OS for me to use with no real headaches.

To the developer/s - keep up the awesome work!

Salix has to be THE most underrated distro on here. I've been gearing myself up to try out Slackware and thought Salix might be a good stepping stone.

Firstly, Salix is much easier to install than Slackware but still may not be suitable for the Linux noobs. I installed the 14.2 XFCE ISO and during installation you can choose from 3 different images, full, basic and core. I did the full install just to see how it would perform on my old laptop and it has actually surprised me, it is very light on resources while still being packed with the essentials and some extras.

You can easily install pre-compiled packages via the command line or by using gslapt package manager (which is handy for searching specific packages). Theres also pre-installed software for compiling your own packages if you prefer that method.

All in all, Salix is a very solid distro and one that appears to be overlooked due to the accessibility of other distros. We need to keep init freedom alive and keep projects like Salix alive. Say no to systemd.

I like it for lightweight machines, personally, but I would recommend it for most anything. Sadly, I like to have an up to date kernel most of the time, so the irony for me here is I'm going to use slackware itself so I can have 4.9, which is my personal minimum, for the driver stack and for containers.
