    Vector is 100% Slackware compatible, but it depends on what version you use. The VL5.9 series are based on Slackware 12.0 whereas the VL5.8 series are based on Slack 11.0.


    There should also be a KDE package for Vector.

    Here's a link to the official Vector repository:

    ftp.osuosl.org :: Oregon State University Open Source Lab

    Slackware mirrors can be found here:
