    slackware 10.0 error

    i just switched from fedora to slackware and i love it.....but i cant install anything
    when i run ./configure on anything i get this error message

    checking wether build enviornment is sane... Configure: error: newly created file is older then distrobuted files
    check your system clock

    i reinstalled sane and i get the same thing....and i have no idea what it means about system clock

    any info would be greatly appriciated....thnaks

    Try typing date and see if the time is "ahead" (that is, perhaps it's saying it's December 23, 2004 rather than July 23, 2004).

    all is well...system clock was set for jan2 02...odd but its going good now

    might as well ask this here then open a new thread....
    ive been reading a book called "Hacker Cracker"....very good book
    and he said that at one point he opened up xterm and sent a chat invite to this kid that just hacked the isp he was working for.....i did not know that their was a sort of command line AIM so to speak....and being that im addicted to command line beyond all reason...i thought id ask if this thing was avaliable....

    Well, not used that often anymore. Look at the commands write and talk. I remember using talk with a sysadmin of an ISP I used to use when I first got on the Internet (this was when it was a per hour charge and there was a lot of small ISPs around).
