Slackware current iso


Does anyone know of a place where I can download slackware current as an iso image with the latest packages and also build for i686 structure?
Or isn't it available anywhere yet? The Slackware current tree doesn't have an associated iso on any server apparently...

Thank you for your answer.

Slackware isn't built for i686, if you want a slackware version that is, you might wanna look into:
www.archlinux.org

I seemed to stumble upon a 486 build one time though, so who knows, maybe 9.1 will be 486 optimized???

Cool

Ok, apologises, I meant i486. The current tree seems to be built for i486. Hence my question about finding an iso..

Yes it is... hmm, that'll be interesting to see how much of a difference it makes

ftp://carroll.cac.psu.edu/pub/linux/...nux/README.TXT

That might help I'm looking, but I don't think there are any 'official' iso's for current. Occasionally though you can find one of the mirrors that will put one out (check the .edu's since it's usually a student support type thing..).

Cool

Ok, I found one. Full ISO (over 1 gb) but also an ISO without KDE and one without GNOME.
I wanted one with Gnome but no kde, perfect!
It is here:

It's better to make your own ISO, as there are clear directions in the -current folder. You can leave out what you want to, rather than what someone else thinks is extraneous. It's pretty easy to do, but you need the disk space, of course.
