Question Where to Download an i386 DVD installer -.iso image- for Slackware -Current


hi everyone

Can anyone lead me to the page where I can download an i386 DVD installer -.iso image- for Slackware -Current, please. [ HTTP / FTP / Torrent link ]


If I understand correctly Slackware -Current builds are development / test builds, like Debian Testing.

Many thanks in advance. - Jags

Question

hi "piscikeeper"

Many thanks for your reply.

From the link you provided I selected a mirror > and reached:


http://slackware.cs.utah.edu/pub/slackware/ >

http://slackware.cs.utah.edu/pub/sla...kware-current/ >


and finally to:

http://slackware.cs.utah.edu/pub/sla...ent/slackware/


but in that page I don't see any .iso file to download.


I'm looking for a DVD installer for Slackware -Current / latest development / test build.


Thanks again, - Jags

You can download all the files and make the DVD image by yourself.

Do be aware that -current is not intended for beginners or for production purposes.

You should find the images you want here.

Smile Slackware -Current DVD installer

"mRgOBLIN"


Many thanks, that's what I was looking for. Already started downloading "slackware-current-19_Feb_2008-DVD.iso"


And yes, I'm gonna install Slackware -Current on my extra / experimental PC.


Though I'm a newbie to *nix, Solaris and Linux, I like to play around with development / test builds and have learned alott of Linux that way. [ right now there are 8 OSes installed on that PC along with Vista Ultimate ]


Is there any date / schedule for the next Slackware release (13) ?


Thanks again, - Jags

Hi,
Try 'Alien_Bob's-script -mirror-slackware-current.sh' script. It will make things a lot easier for you.
