How to put (freed?) Slack on (crowd-funded project) EOMA68?


The EOMA68 open-hardware project offers pre-installation of Parabola, Fedora, DebIan and Devuan; would a Slack entry (or FreedSlack) be possible?
It's based on an ARM chip…

(and how do I find what tags are "pre-existing"?)

The eoma68 has been around for a few years already and the support for the A20 CPU is already in -current and 14.2 kernels, as it's the one in the Banana Pi.
This would be a project for the community to work on.

Since the A20 is in the kernels, we may only need a few additional modules - I could add these in to the kernel configuration for the kernel I distribute (unless patches are required).

You'd probably want to mandate in your installation documentation that you needed to a USB network dongle so that you could install over Ethernet (as the supported devices do) and that way you can use the regular installer, rather than maintaining an root image.

I don't know what that means.

maybe he was referring to the packages series - tags or in that sense?

If this project meets its ambitions fully, there should be plenty of room on a microSDHC chip for system image
(Thank you for hope)

For the paranoid among us, pxelinux is not popular

I was referring to distributing a root file system, as is popular with most of the other distributions.
All of the supported systems for Slackware are installed using the same installer as the x86 - you don't download an image and dd it to a disc/SD card.

Oh - can you even do that? :-) That'd be quite useful but I don't see any way to do it.
