uh-oh, I think something bad happened to my slack box...
Now this could be just my fault or I might have been cracked, I haven't any idea at this point. Lemme start off at the beginning though: Things were going great for me, I found my home with Slackware 10.1 and I put on slapt-get and things were going quite well. Then I sort of figured out how to use pkgtool, I went to linuxpackages.net and I downloaded firefox 1.0.6 for i686 and I went in as root and did makepkg firefox.tgz and installpkg firefox.tgz and it looked like it was going well it then asked me if I wanted it exclusively have this package under "root.root" or something, I was doing this resonably late last night so I said yes and it was finished afterwards I went to bed (forgot to turn computer off). I wake up this morning and click on the terminal on the kicker to try to launch Firefox from it but it just says "cannot open /home/commandercool/kicker/terminal it has been malformatted" (example, and no my user is not commander cool, I just thought it would be funny to put that in there). It seems as though all the kicker icons were malformatted and I everything from the start menu refused to launch. I kill X, exit out and try to log in as user "cannot cd into /home/commandercool" umm.. ok now I'm getting worried, so let's try root
AHH!! In a panicked rush I format and threw Debian on my box, I don't know what happened. Was this my fault for putting everything as root for the pkgtool question? If so why was I not able to log in as root? I was not running a server at all, I dunno what happened here.
