Description: Fred Emmott has announced the release of Slamd64 Linux 12.2, an unofficial port of Slackware Linux to the x86_64 architecture: "Slamd64 12.2 is released, and is an incremental improvement over 12.1, including: Linux 2.6.27.7; GCC 4.2.4; Apache HTTPD 2.2.10, with SSL support and PHP 5.2.8; updated development tools; KDE 3.5.10 and Xfce 4.4.3; Mozilla Firefox 3.0.5 and Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0.0.19; Sun Java (JRE and JDK) 6u11. Like previous releases of Slamd64, 12.2 provides seamless FHS-compliant 32-bit compatibility, via a multilib system (/lib for 32-bit libraries and /lib64 for 64-bit libraries). This provides easier and increased support for both existing 32-bit software and for 64-bit binaries too, such as the NVIDIA drivers, without requiring compatibility symlinks which clutter the root directory and remove the separation of 32-bit and 64-bit binaries."
Keywords: Slackware Seamless FHS-compliant

Pros: Slackware stock compiled as 64-bit
Cons:



Running Slamd64 allows me to continue my Slackware, but with a 64-bit rig. No changes to stock slackware packages other than 64-bit options, just Slackware.
