Are there any -current snapshots?


Upgrading from -release to -current takes a really long time, is there any faster way of doing it like snapshots people have made of the -current branch?

Of course that the upgrading from -release to -current takes a really long time.

Because the differences between them are today so huge that is basically equivalent with upgrading everything.

However, IF you intend a clean install of -current, you have a latest ISO there: https://slackware.nl/slackware/slackware64-current-iso/

OR, even better, for your further local ISO builds you can use https://slackware.nl/people/alien/to...are-current.sh

Both was brought to us by Eric Hameleers.
