No, not tried it with Slack, yet. Got it working easily with Raspbian, since all the information out there focuses on that distro: getting an updated raspi-config with an option to enable/disable the camera.

I've just tried in raspbian which at least verifies the hardware is ok. now to see if I can find any documentation to implement it in slackware.

The manual way to enable the pi camera is to add
Quote:

start_file=start_x.elf
fixup_file=fixup_x.dat
# optionally:
#disable_camera_led=1
to the config.txt in /boot

gpu_mem=128 seems to be recommended as well, ymmv

I haven't tried it in Slackware version though, as I am using arch on it for now (it boots seriously fast with the *shock horror* systemd on it)
