@hunybuny, are you an AI bot? It's very odd to open a thread in the Slackware sub-forum yet never mention Slackware at all. :oops:

This was your very first post here. You might spend some time first learning your way around the forum and meet some of the staff and regular helpers. You might introduce yourself and tell us of your skills and qualifications. You might consider contributing to some threads here before trying to lead one, especially one as far-reaching as you propose.

If you're a human, Welcome aboard! If you're a bot or a spammer, I don't guess that you'll be here very long. ;)
