Slamd64...anybody try it yet?


I guess there is not a official page for it, but I was reading about Slamd64, which is a unofficial 64 bit port of Slackware on Distrowatch and am curious if is any good?

I am curious to. I've been using gentoo lately on my amd64. But would love to put slack back on it :-) I know... I CAN do that... the 32bit version... but hey.... there's always the geek factor of running a 64bit OS when all your windows 'friends' are still waiting for XP64 :-)

It's getting better and better everyday.. I would say it's about stable enough for a desktop, but I wouldn't use it on a server yet.. (and personally not until there is an official port)

I ran Gentoo on the AMD64 too. I liked it. I also tried the FreeBSD AMD64 version. But, I feel Debian's AMD64 runs the fastest so far. Perhaps that was due to my own errors in Gentoo....not sure. I had ran it in 32 bit mode on a P4 and it was nice. I decided to make the leap on the AMD64 and it was nice too...but, I'm curious what Slack would be like.

I did come across a real gem. Kanotix. It's like Knoppix, only for AMD64 and is Debian based. Just installed it on my laptop and I notice a nice improvement from Fedora Core (which was 32 bit). Never have tried the 64 bit Fedora.

My browser refuses the link ftp://ftp.scarlet.be/pub/slamd64/

Does anyone know another mirror where I could find this image?
