Is there any place to get an iso of slackware-current? I would love to have a Slackware with new glibc, XF86, and gcc. But, I would also prolly just install 8.0 unless I can get a slackware-current iso.
Anyone know where to get one?
Or if there is a really easy way to install slackware-current?
You'll have to just get the packages and update manually. If Slack released a current ISO it'd be the same as releasing a Slack 8.2 or so, which hasn't happened. So long story short, gotta download the packages.

He was asking about where to get the slackware-current ISO IF there was one, which there is not. You can only get Slack 8 original in ISO form. Gotta download the updated packages.
They have updated the source tree with the correct package tree so you can burn the /pub/slackware-current/slackware/ directory from the FTP on to a CD. Boot off the Slackware 8.0 CD. When it asks for the install media, swap CDS and point it to the cdrom drive. It will install Slackware-Current packages at that point.
You can definitly find slackware-current ISO's. But usually not on the slackware official sites. They just change things too frequently. They do, however, give you all the tools on there (and instructions too if I am not mistaken) to build your own bootable install cd in the slackware-current directory.
