VPS Service with Slackware
 
I was looking for some Virtual Private Server service that had an image of a full slackware installation, preferentially version 14.0 64 bits, for OpenVZ, Xen, or other virtualization environment. I only found a crippled (not all packages) image of Slackware 12.0.

Do you know any service that provides it?

linode provides a 13.37 iso I think

If you already use Slackware, then perhaps you can roll your own.
You can start from here: http://slackbuilds.org/slackbuilds/1...stem/xen/domU/

linode.com does provide Slackware (as well as other distros). The one I have was a minimal install and I added packages as needed using slackpkg. I don't remember seeing a full install as one of their options though

Chiming in late here, but I use Host Virtual. They don't offer a Slackware 14.0 image, but their support folks are happy to set you up to install from an ISO.

I think you'd better install from iso to have full control. http://www.xfusesolutions.com provide KVM VPS, and you could basically install whatever you need via their VNC function remotely after they mount the install ISO for you. I installed slackware 14.0 there and the cost is about 6USD/month.
