    From Mortifis@VERT/ALLEYCAT to All on Wed Jul 3 13:44:12 2019
    Wanting and/or needing Lets Encrypt on a Slackware 14.2 Linux system has to be the most brutal approach anyone can imaging .... I have always enjoyed the hands-on Slackware requires, but acquiring the prerequisite for various packages is very time consuming and often results in a broken system ... I am definitely considering to finally switch my server needs over to a deb* based system ... so long Slackware, it's been a long 24 years :-/

    Have you thought about trying this? (I haven't as I don't
    need/use LetsEncrypt):

    https://slackbuilds.org/repository/14.2/system/letsencrypt/

    You're likely familiar with SBo, and yes.... there are a *LOT* of
    dependencies listed there. But, they're all available right there
    on SBo, probably wouldn't be *TOO* bad to get it done.

    Don't give up on Slackware! We need all of us there are left...!
    ;-) I will say I'm getting tired of waiting for 15.0... been over
    three years now since 14.2 was released. Arggghhhh.

    Yes, I very aware, my system broke part way
    through, so, I reformated the hard drive,
    installed Deb9, moved my server backups over
    and with a simple 'apt install certbot'
    command had TLS up and running

    Yeah, I am not expecting Pat to put a 15 out
    anytime soon ...
