slackware64-current kernel-3.4.x or 3.6.x packages
 
Since these kernels are, according to slackware64-current's tree, testing they have no packages build on the repositories for them.
But is there somewhere these packages for download for upgrade on my ivy bridge laptop? I'm afraid it freezes up on the kernel upgrade process. Any huge.s config should be fine! :)

I have as well a ivy bridge laptop with a Intel HD 4000 graphic card and the first week only once I had a freeze. So I do not think you will have any issue during you build a new kernel. I used as well the config in testing, downloaded the latest kernel source and built a new kernel. With the config in testing you only have to answer some questions.

I run now since two weeks on 3.6.7 and faced no issue.

Cheers
