Slackware ARM version

  • Linux on ARMI recently bought a new Raspberry Pi 3 and installed Slackware ARM current (hard float) on it. My goal was to compare the performance of the hard float port against Slackware ARM 14.2 (soft float), which is currently powering this RPi3 hosted website.

  • Linux on ARMAs of Wednesday, August 24, 2016, Slackware ARM is out of retirement and ready to power your modern ARM devices. The Slackware ARM maintainer has made the decision to pick up development again and go ahead with a hard float port.

  • Linux on ARMThe Slackware ARM installer incorporates the kernel_raspi, kernel-modules-raspi and raspi-boot packages, which have been built using the latest source from the official Raspberry Pi Foundation GitHub repository. The file version and/or build date is displayed in the filename.

  • Linux on ARMWindows users should download Slackware ARM via FTP from or any of the mirrors provided on the Slackware ARM: Get Slack page (at the bottom).

  • Linux on ARMSlackware ARM (“ARMedslack”) is the official port of the Slackware® Linux distribution to the ARM architecture. Currently, the project focuses its efforts on supporting the most popular devices such as the Plug Computers, and can also be used under the QEMU emulator. Support for other devices will be added over time.
