I have been using Linux since 1995 and have been using Slackware the whole
time. So I know how to work through problems on a build of a piece of
software. I gotta say this is the most mangled piece of software I have ever
seen. No matter what hoops I jumped through, no matter how much I read, no
matter what I tried it wouldn't build without erroring out. So I downloaded
the debian .deb binary and in converted it for slackware and installed it. I
pretty much discovered that it wasn't worth the download after I got it
going. Bluefish works a lot better, no it doesn't have all the bells and
whistles, but it works. Amaya doesn't even display existing web pages
properly. Gotta double click links like windows. Really disappointing after
all the grief of trying to get it built.


If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude
than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask
not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which
feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity
forget that you were our countrymen.

Samuel Adams, August 1, 1776 at the Philadelphia State House
