Does anybody know of mining software that will run on slackware linux? I really want to get started mining. I am very new to all this
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

I'd only really see it being a matter of how comfortable you are with Slackware. I haven't used it for a couple years but beyond PATH configuration, ATI drivers and it's APP SDK, and pulling the latest git repository of your chosen miner (if not a binary) I can't see it being much more difficult to deal with. If you're like me you might actually find it easier whereas assumptions are not being made for you and having to set things the way you like.  Grin

Good luck!

I use Slackware, and anything that's open-source you can compile for Linux. Although this site is specifically for ArchLinux distro, it mentions all the Linux mining software.

Also, I've built some Slackware packages of cpuminer (minerd), bitecoin-qt, etc., if anyone's here's interested. You can find them here.
