Difference between LQ ISO -> Slackware and slackware.com/getslack
 
Hi:

Two questions:
(a) What is the difference between downloading slackware 14.0 from LQ ISO and downloading it from slackware.com? Are they the same ISO images?

(b) I understand there are two DVDs for either slackware 32-bit or slackware 64-bit. The second DVD has the sources. I've been told this second DVD is the same for both 32-bit and 64-bit. Is that true?

Thanks.

They are the same ISO images. LQ does not host them, they will point you to one of the official Slackware mirrors.

Check here: http://www.slackware.com/getslack/torrents.php and you will see that there is one source DVD ISO, and then two separate installation DVD ISO images, one for each architecture.

If you order a DVD from the SLackware Store ( http://store.slackware.com/ ) on the other hand, you will get a single DVD, dual-sided, with installers for both 32-bit and 64-bit architectures, and the source included.
