Closest thing to Slackware but with PAM and systemd


What is the closest thing to Slackware but with PAM and systemd?
What i like is running Slackware's development branch -current which gives you relative stability along with a rolling release distribution and sparse, pre-tested updates, unlike Arch or Debian which introduce updated packages on a daily basis.
Is there such a thing?
If not what is the closest thing to it?

If you want a rolling release which isn't bleeding edge like Arch, there's Fuduntu or PCLinuxOS. Neither is remotely like Slackware, though.

Take a look at Crux Linux. I'm not sure if it is a rolling release but you may can make it into one. It is suppose to be based on a cross of Slack & Arch from my understanding.

CRUX isn't rolling-release, and it doesn't use systemd either.

Slackware has a rolling release! I did not know that.

Are you sure about that? That does not sound like the Debian I know.

Pam and systemd and slackware are a contradictio in terminis.
