I didn't want to make another thread but if this belongs in the support section let me know.
Basically a while back Linux-SWAT told me about slackware when I asked about being able to use a debian version of the Tor (formerly onion) browser on the pandora. Well, back then I didn't have money for a small sd card because I wanted to save up for my current 128GB sd card, which works wonderfully out of the box (save for a reformatting that took seconds).
Now I have money for 2 more much smaller sd cards, one of which I want to dedicate to slackware. But... I don't fully understand what it is. Is it like pandebian? If so then how does it differ and what can it do that pandebian cannot? From what I understand I don't need to reboot my pandora to activate pandebian, like there's a gui or something.
If I could get someone to explain simply what I can use sackware to do and what it CAN'T do, or pandebian for that matter, I would be a happy camper. I've read through this thread and it seems like there is alot that I am missing on the subject.
The way I understand how pandebian works is that it allows the debian build to boot WITH the arm build that the pandora uses. So is slackware allowing for some other kind of build to operate? I don't know if I am on the right track with this.
The purpose I want to serve with either is using specific niche programs that have not been made into pnds yet, like cheese for using my webcam with pandebian or using the tor browser, or other programs that would just be difficult for someone to mke into a pnd.
