Anyone get Slackware (maybe Zipslack??) working on Intel Galileo?


Sorry, I'm pretty new so please excuse me if this is obvious. I was wondering whether there's a build of Slackware that will run on the Intel Galileo (vs Yacto)? I understand the 32Gb SD card would likely need to be installed, but just wondering if anyones tried?

Intel Galileo is an Arduino form factor board that runs an Intel x86 processor (unlike most Arduino boards which run an ARM processor like you'd see in a phone or i-Pad). Yacto ids the stripped down flavor of Linux which I believe Intel is bundling with the board. Here are a couple of links with more info.:

Galileo is a 32-bit (pentium-based) Arduino System On a Chip. I personally have never tried, but I imagine it should work well given that it's mostly all Intel hardware and they develop release drivers for almost all their hardware to work with linux.

The first has been answered, Yacto is a Linux distro that was the primary distro for the Beaglebone series of ARM motherboards a few years back.
