    Actually, I have no problems on the hd4650 ON LINUX here, not that I'm ambitious. It's my recently decent (but now apparently crap) RS690 (rs600?) that's exercising my mind.

    Thanks for this.
    Slackware uses .tgz or .txz packages, which essentially are a tar.gz from / with no dependency tracking. I have the readme you linked me to, and I can raid slackware-current as...
