Give the mirrors a couple of days to pull it in.

I have to wait anyway else I have to pay for the data.

Fantastic!!

I just tried to "jump the gun" a little and do an ftp install from:
ftp://slackware.mirrors.tds.net/pub/...t/slackware64/
but it didn't work.

Now how an I supposed to sleep?

They were pretty secret about it. I hadn't heard that it was being worked on.

Absolutely Outstanding!
Thank you very much!

BTW, is it multi-lib or "pure 64"?
