    I said I never used it . I did read the slackbook, as far as I can recall, I never saw anything like that in it (version 2), but surely one doesn't remember anything, right . I don't use Slackware itself either, so ImageMagick isn't on my system.

    this wasnt aimed at you, and you're right imagemagick use isnt in the slackbook.

    but this guy is using 2.6 over 2.4 which uses EVEN more RAM so

    he's either not clued up, hasnt read the slackbook, or can't type that single line and show us proof.

    - of course your working window manager

    You can get the first by typing cat /proc/cpuinfo in a terminal, the second by typing free -m, which will display your memory details (usage, amount, swap).

    And as for your RAM, now you're using 32 MB, before you said 24 MB RAM ?
    Its to slow to use Gimp and ImageMagick

    I also changed the ram so it might be different

    it would run imagemagick from command line fine

    it would just take longer than a modern pc

    it seems you have no idea what you are talking about.

    Ok - sorry if it sounded offensive . Sometimes I'm a little defensive .

    It only runs xmms and I do know what I am talking. Also I read the slackbook many times and upgraded the kernel 2.4 to 2.6.Its also not connected to the internet and can boot floppies also the company Midwest Micro is out of bussiness

    Cheetahman, do us all a favour. Turn us into believers. Execute the commands in the terminals like I asked, make the screenshot with Imagemagick, and poste it here. If it is true what you say, and you can show it, I'll believe you. But if I have to estimate your level of skill, based on your posts here, it's not that of an expert (nofi). So just make a screenshot, you'll have your credit, and we'll be happy .
