Anyone tried Zenwalk?
From what I know so far Zenwalk is a slackware based distribution with its own TGZ based (!) package manager that has a dependancy resolution implemented in a rather unique way (as far as I know). Instead of storing dependancies in individual packages it stores them in a central database to which packages are just compared and then dependancies are being acquired.
EDIT: Its package manager is called netpkg.
Considering that it is slackware based which means it's clean, simple and compile friendly, that it uses plain standard tgzs (which are just plain unmodified original compiled binaries) and has a dependancy resolution, Zenwalk seems to be very close to if not my perfect ideal distro.
But I'm not getting it just yet because I don't have flat rate ADSL connection yet which I'll have in a few days and then I'm gonna download and try it.
Until then I'd like to hear anyones experiences with it if you have used it?
