I've been looking at the Arch Linux distro. It seems pretty interesting and quite similar to Slackware. The only question I cant find an answer for is the fact that its package manager is Pacman, which installs .tar.gz packages same as slackware only Pacman supports Dependencies. So im wondering if Pacman will cleanly install slackware packages as well. If so it would turn out to be a pretty promising disro for me to give a shot.
