Slackware64...Where?
 
Where is a link to d/l the torrent for Slackware64? I understand it's still a -current release, but a iso from a torrent is MUCH easier for us w/out a dedicated T3 line to download. At 512m, my download would choke on the entire ftp folder being fed to it.

I also realize that, since it is -current, that it changes rather often, thus negating the iso. But since I'm updating to a core 2 duo this week, I wouldn't mind getting the final version later, and run -current now.

So... Any link for Slackware64 torrents?

Almost certainly not, because:

Heres a torrent but it's slow.

Or you can use some free dl manager like FDM, where you can specify speed you want to download with, and download from here current-iso-build.

Hi,

The ISO can be d/l;

SlackwareŽ64 -current iso
+ README.TXT <- As it says!

EDIT: Look at this post

FTR -current ISOs arent just hosted by slackware.no
Most of the slackware mirrors, pick those up as well.

Hi,

I just happened too have that link so what's the harm?

And yes the mirrors should start to have the iso.

There is a script that makes an iso of the 32-bit current version, so I would imagine that same script could be applied to the 64-bit current as well? :scratch:

In the post you linked to, the link in THAT one (For the torrent) is bad...

But thanks for the direct iso link.

You are probably referring to alienBOB's script. All you need to do is change slackware-current to slackware64-current. I just used his script for the first time the other day... that's pretty slick.

Yea thats it! I just couldn't pinpoint exactly since I never actually used it myself, but knew it was out there, just forgot who was responsible for it.

cwwilson721 05-27-2009 05:23 AM

Well....

After much research, reading, thinking, and time, I've decided to wait for the stable Slackware64.

I need wine to work on it, because of a few windows games that are the primary reason I'm upgrading to a AMD 64 x 2 system...And it is nice on this old AMD 2000+ to be able to play them while in Slackware through wine/Cedega/Crossover Games (None of which will compile/install without the 32 libs). While 12.2 will run on the new system, I would personally prefer to go with a 64-bit kernel/OS, that most of the bugs are worked out of.

In the meantime, I'll keep 12.2 on this box, and go to (GASP!) XP 64 on the new one, until the stable release comes out.

Then it's Slackware64 time.

Thanks for the help/assistance. It was greatly appreciated. And big kudos to the devs for getting a functional 64bit Slackware out there.

You don't have to do that. Just download the new script. Look at Alien_Bob's response and what was done to correct the script.

I don't know why but the link went stale. The LinuxTracker does list another so pick from the list.

'Slackware64 current 20 May 2009 DVD' is a torrent that is active.

The link you say that went stale was i think taken off after a couple of us complained about it. It was posted anonymously and although it was listed as slackware64 it was after downloading found out to be really slamd64, so i put the newer one on afterwards which is the one you refer to above slackware64-current-20_May_2009-DVD i go by the name rowanhippy on the tracker site, hope that helps
