Hi Jacob -

I had been hoping to avoid that, but I may not be able to avoid it much
longer! I have a pretty flexible partitioning scheme for this 8G drive,
and will probably be able to tuck my configs and scripts aside without too
much pain. My intuition tells me you are right, Jacob. A few days ago I
obtained the freeamp binary for Slackware and it was  unable to run
because it could not find a shared library - it was
"" -- which is why I went after the sources.

Thanks for your suggestion. If nothing better comes up I may go for that
big step. I am pretty happy with Slackware and am learning a lot from
working with it, but now the moment of truth - upgrading probably means a
whole new install.
