Slim dropped from the Debian archive

I can make it official now, the Debian package Slim is going to be removed from their archive, even though the bugs are fixed for both Debian stable and unstable, in the end the package has to be taken off where that part of that story is fuzzy.

Now it is time to switch to qingy or gdm... or xdm.

As of a last effort I updated the two packages and put them on Alioth. Check the changes files if you want more information.


  1. Bad news :(
    I use slim on many compuers for a couple of years. Thanks for the good work!

  2. Someone else picked it up and the package is back in Debian unstable. Good luck.
